Very interesting theories. I need to read it again as it is pretty complicated. I find the correlation between external hydrocephalus and decreased heart function very interesting, as my 9 year old son had diagnosed external hydrocephalus as and infant and recently had a cardiac ultrasound with an ejection fraction of 45%. I am wondering if his the external hydrocephalus is not truely resolved. They said it would resolve on it own and it was improving when they repeated a cat scan at age 2 1/2. He also appears to have gastroparesis – he is on a proton inhibitor for reflux which improved his stomach pain but he still complains of being full and does not eat well. I thought this was the cause of his growth delay but based on the theory part 1 it could be that his growth hormone is effect due to the pressure on the hypothalamus? right?
Thanks again for publishing these theories.
