Proof that our kids can heal from Autism

If you have been in the biomed community for any length of time, then you are well aware of the “naysayers”.

The Naysayers that say us biomed parents are kooky.  That we can’t REALLY heal our children from autism.   That autism is 100% neurological, and this is just how our children are.  And this is how they will always be.  Hope to heal them, is just a waste of time.   And why would we want to heal them anyway?

Well I need to speak up.

Before biomed my son was completely non-verbal. When he spoke it was humming or grunting. He was filled with sensory issues.  Drooling, toe walking, dragging his head on the floor, pushing his body into walls and people.   He had dark circles under his eyes.  A distended belly.  Never had a solid poop a day in his life.  Although it wasn’t what you would call diarrhea, it wasn’t solid, that’s for sure.   And OMG it smelled like mothballs!  His hair was brittle, as were his toe nails.  His breath smelled like wet metal.

Fast forward…. After seeing many doctors and therapists,  I found a DAN doctor and our world changed forever!!   Progress started almost instantly.  All because of a simple probiotic.  My son kept his first words at the age of 3 1/2!  We did testing, testing that none of our other doctors had ever recommended.  The results made my knees buckle!  30 food sensitivities, gut dysbiosis, high yeast levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter imbalances, vitamin deficiencies, toxic exposure, mitochondrial dysfunction.  And all of this was going on inside my 3 year old child!?!?

But tests don’t lie….

From those results we fine tuned our sons treatment plan.  And after that, the progress never stopped!

 And that is what this post is REALLY all about!!  OUR CHILDREN CAN HEAL!!!!  IT IS NOT ONLY IN OUR IMAGINATIONS!

We started biomedical intervention in October of 2010.  And I am happy to say my son is in mainstream classes in school.  No longer receives any therapy.  Is wonderful at math, reading, and enjoys doing BMX.

But the black and white proof is what you really want to see right?  Of course it is. =-)   So here is a snippet of testing results.   I hope you see the WOW factor.  I’m going to do a comparison between my sons 2012 and 2014 Organic Acid panels.    So here you go  =-)

Oxidative Stress

2010

12261361324_2a4a9f82c0

2014   8-OHdG Went into normal ranges!

12261085863_68367387c5

 

Mitochondrial dysfunction, Need for Methylation, and Toxic Exposure.

2012

12261496736_fa8928e2bb

2014  – All normal range now! We did a liver cleanse, added CoQ-H, and kept with the TMG

 

 

12260938645_86a77b270b

 

Minerals

2012

12261500376_f4ae9934c9_z

 

2014   Magnesium was border line, now normal.  Zinc was border line, now normal

12260943475_391982976d_z

 

The B Vitamins

2012

12261097483_d5b487eb5f_z

2014

Need for B6 improved even more.   Need for B12 went from border line to normal. B9 improved slightly.  We are going to work on the rest of the B’s.  Focusing on B1 for the moment.

12261531136_1a851e73e2_z

Antioxidants

2012 – Pretty much bad all over…..

12261511306_b454effee1_z

2014  There has been improvement!  Vitamin C &CoQ10 went from high need to normal.  Plant Based antioxidants & Glutathione went from high need to border line.  We are adding in some Vitamin E and A on a rotation plan.

12260954495_9f237c0b40_z

 

Per his doctors notes:

GI looks excellent.  Minerals are good.  Amino Acids look great, detoxification looks great.  Mito dysfunction very good and improved from last check.   Neurotransmitter balance is good.

So what are we focusing on now?  Antioxidants, and getting those B vitamins into the normal range.  Ironically not the “BIG B’s”  which are B6 and B12.  Those are already looking great.

I think things really improved by going on an organic non-GMO diet.  I think doing the liver cleanse (even though it was a not so fun experience) helped with removing the toxins.   And the CoQH helped the mito dysfunction.

Again, we have fine tuned Anthony’s supplement protocol and I am feeling really good about it.

So to those of you that need motivation to keep at it with biomedical intervention, I hope this post gives you that hope and faith.  Know what you are doing, IS making a difference.

To the naysayers that say nothing is medically wrong with a child with autism, please run a organic acid test (OAT).  That is all I ask.   Run the test and then come and talk to me.  If you can tell me the information you receive doesn’t shock you… I will honestly be surprised.

BIOMED HEALS!!!  

My son Anthony at 6 years old.  A very talkative, happy, active boy that has recovered from autism spectrum disorder

    This is truly an inspirations to us moms with kids in the spectrum. Where does one begin? Requesting tests online, seeing a DAN doctor who requests theses tests, reading a particular book? I just want to find the right road, I’ve been on so many, but I need guidance. Any solid recommendations?

    I follow your blog, but rarely comment. I’m just curious- I saw the 2014 NutrEval rec.’s 100mg ALA. I know this is controversial because of Andy Cutler’s position on ALA. Our son does so well on ALA, that we’ve started giving him 100mg daily. Is this something you’re doing, or have you swapped something else for the ALA?

    I am glad to see your proof that your child’s autism has vanished as a result of your biomedical approach. I don’t understand your combative tone, though. If your son is recovered, why do you care that other people might not believe it? Don’t the amazing results speak for themselves? Why do you need someone else to validate your experience?

    Same for my son. His organic acids test results at age 4 were a disaster. Nothing was normal. By age 9, after much biomed and diet, all but two items were well into the normal range. He still deals with mito dysfunction, but besides watching his diet and taking supplements, he lives a normal active life and is an athlete at his high school. Autism is medical and it is treatable! We are about to do another organic acids test and I am hoping that those ;last two items will be normal or moving that direction.

My daughter is on a rx to help rid her body of the excess yeast and she has been acting out more, stimming more, screaming more. Just wondering if you experienced this at all? I have heard that sometimes it gets worse before it gets better? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Wow! This is great! My son is doing well on biomed also but it’s been a long road we’re still on. I’m going to look around your blog more for details. I’m very interested in the liver cleanse. Can u please give me more details on it? Did u just add liver cleanse supplement or was there a protocol u followed. Since we’ve added sauerkraut w/ beets we’ve seen great improvements in bowel health & absorption of minerals & vitamins.
    God Bless &stay strong!!!

    Hi,

    We’ve been on biomed protocol for almost three years now. And while we did see improvement we think that it’s time to move another DAN that will pay attention to details in our son’s lab and help us recover our child . Would you mind sharing your DAN’s name?

    Also, did you son had traditional therapies like ABA , OT and Speech? We recently decided to stop therapies and use all money for biomed. My son is 5 yrs old , very smart and his main issues are temper , not being very flexible and some sensory behaviors when excited (exp jumping or running). His gut is and always was hard to figure out for us.

    Thank you :)

    Do you think that some of the toxicity could have come from vaccines? Did he get the regular vaccines? I have read several stories about babies changing over night since they receive their shots. Even vaccines without mercury can have really bad “chronic” side-effects.

    How is this proof that your son is healed? It is proof that his enzymes and chemical make up has changed. Did you take data to determine a baseline, during treatment, and after treatment results? Were there any other therapies going on at that time (SP, OT, PT, behavioral)? Did you do one thing at a time to determine what caused your son’s behavior to change? I think we need to be careful when we contribute our children’s transformations to one thing when several things are happening at once. I do not question ones desire to help their child. However, the attitude that it is going to work no matter what is dangerous. Did you tell your child that this was going to cure him? What if it doesn’t work? Will he feel like he some how failed? Will you be able to except your child as they are? Finally, what works for one autistic child does not work for other autistic children. Offering something as a sure all is irresponsible. BTW..What functioning level was your son when he was diagnosed?

    Michelle,
    Sorry my mistake..I hate it when companies change things, sigh. I guess I will still have to keep looking. I just found this website and must say I find it quite inspiring. I’m also a big believer in biomedical and it’s nice to find someone else who is too. I have a question about your son’s PANDA’S diagnosis though. How was it done? After reading thru all of your posts and stuff about it, I’m beginning to think maybe it’s a piece that I’ve been missing all along with my son. We have a lot of obsessions with fans, bridges, drains and automatic doors. He’s had strep in the past and facial tics. I sent a message to my DAN doctor to see about testing for it and the nurse came back with suggestions for a viral panel, lyme testing and an immune panel! We all know how much this kind of testing can add up! Did you have to complete all of these to test your son for strep numbers? I would love to get the kind of results that you have had with your son. We struggle with yeast, food allergies and detox issues. Despite my best efforts we still haven’t seen the success I was hoping for. We currently are SCD. I just wish I could find the magic bullet for him! Thanks for your help!

    Kimberly,
    Yes Andy has had food igg and ige food allergy testing. We too had multiple food allergies. They have gone down and changed over time. I attribute this to adding enzymes and probiotics into his diet. The scd diet has helped his digestive tract, confirmed thru testing, but yes it’s very restrictive and I would like to kinda move away from it a little now. We’ve been doing it for 1 1/2 yrs and before that were gf/cf. We have ige allergies to egg whites and dairy .He’s always struggled with yeast and the diet seems to have helped that. We’ve done everything we could to get rid of yeast. I have a phone consult set up with Dr next week to go over 23and me results. I can’t wait. Gonna quiz him more about PANDAs being a possibility and try to understand the raw genetic data! I’ve been busy trying to familiarize myself with Amy Yasko stuff and cut thru my own brain fog! Boy, I would have paid waay more attention in school if I’d of know I was gonna be blessed with this little boy :)
    I just want to make sure that we get the right tests ordered.
    Thank you once again for taking time to answer my questions!!

    Thanks dear for your blog!You are such an inspiration to me.We just started biomed..done almost all the tests.My daughter’s toxic metals are markedly higher than normal.Our concern is mainly lead as it exceeds 3 times the upper expected limit.Our Dan doctor recommends chelation using EDTA ,DMPS via IV..just wondering you or any mom went through this?Another concern is speech delay, she’s currently on DMG.. she vocalizes a lot and try to babble but no meaningful words…what other medicine helps with speech? ( she is 3 years 9 months old)

    This is fantastic. Congrats!! We have taken my son to two different DAN docs. We’ve seen progress with both. One mainly was with HbOT for him being non verbal. And now he talks up a storm. We have just recently started respen-a and he’s made some progress. Who was the doc you saw In California? We fly all over, I’d love (I guess a third) opinion/options. Masons never had toxin or chemical issues. In fact, all the specialize blood work and other lab work like the OAT and stuff have come back “clinically normal”. Thanks for the great story!

    Hi Kimberly,
    Whenever I google Biomeds treatment for autism, one of your posts or stories keeps popping up,they are inspiring and proof that successful treatment is possible. I’m based in U.K and just beginning my own journey with my 3 year old daughter. She’s language delayed and got a few issues here and there like starring a lot into space, tantrums but is quite social so most people just believe she’s ok and everything will be ok ,after all children develop at different paces. Blabla. (Including my dear hubby). In my heart I know that there is something wrong,fortunately not so severe. She’s also on the waiting list for an assessment which can be as long as a year where I am at.
    With all this going on, I decided to get help for my baby, unfortunately it seems the biomedical approach is not so common here and her doctor actually dismissed it when I was trying to explain it to him. Luckily I was able to get a renowned nutrition therapist who does it and actually recovered her daughter years ago
    She began by getting the OAT test and stool analysis and has started us on some supplements like SNT,probiotics,enzymes,cod liver oil,magnesium,Epsom baths,etc, we started them one at a time with a few days in between to notice any side effects.
    We are currently on a gut cleanse program after which she said we will support methylation with dmg,mb12,folic acid etc. I’m pleased with what I’m doing and in my heart I know I’m doing the right thing to help my daughter.
    Sorry for the long rant and all but at times it helps a lot talking to someone who has successfully been through what you are going through.
    They are days that I am pleasantly shocked at the little differences I see in language and character and then they are days when I feel like I am not seeing any difference and doubt if it’s actually working and that’s when stories like Anthony’s act as energisers.
    Was just comparing my daughters oat results to Anthony’s initial results and realise they are quite similar, so I’m hoping with the right treatment plan, we will eventually be able to tell the success story just like you. Weldone for being a wonderful determined and strong mum for your son and thanks for being an Inspiration to mums like me. God bless.

    Hi Kimberley,

    Thanks for sharing your journey it really helps gives the rest of us hope. My little boy is 3.2 years old we have been doing Biomeds with him since Jan in the form of Paleo diet GF/DF/SF and now grain free. We are doing lots of supplements in the form of probiotics, vitamins and minerals but trying to get other interventions in the UK such as MB12 shots is proving impossible!! We do not have the treatment options over here which is so very frustrating.

    We have recently sent off for our 23andme testing so just waiting on the results. Looking to do the OAT test next however my question to you is – did you take your son of his supplements for the 2 weeks prior to testing as reccomended? I am so scared to do this as we had to this for a stool test a few months back, during this time we saw regression in my sons eye contact and the little speech that he has. So am really in two minds at hte moment wether to go for testing or not. Any advice you could give would be so appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi Kimberly

    Congrats to you and your son!! What you have done is nothing short of wonderful. There are so many of us out there trying to achieve that! I am a huge supporter of biomed treatment. My son will be six years old on Christmas. I have been doing GFCFSF for my son for about 2 1/2 years. That itself made a huge difference. I have just started dabbling in biomed. And from what I’ve seen so far I know that its a step in the right direction. I don’t have a technical Dan Doctor, but my sons pediatrician also has a son with autism, so he has been giving me some pointers. He has recommended a spectrum support kit with a great vitamin/ mineral supplement, an awesome probiotic, a delicious strawberry DHA cod liver oil and digestive enzymes from brainchild nutritionals. There I also have found some other great items like a yeast management supplement and natural anti fungals. My son has responded very well to this. We still have some work todo though. I applaud you for accomplishing something that many find very difficult to near impossible. I hope that one day I can say I did it too :) anyway if you have any suggestions or advice that would be great. Thanks so much! Oh and Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    Thank you so much for your response Kimberly. I have started back with grape fruit seed extraxt and caprylic acid and shall I use florastor for kids probiotic is that good? My son also use to get ear infections quite often so we give him more antibiotics and got tubes, and also he has severe tonsils anddoc requested to do surgery to remove tonsils..but i.haven’t agreed to it. Am thinking by clearing off the yeast problem it should be of good help. Doctor suggested us to give medicine for yeast..for 4weeks and followed by probiotocs everyday

    Hi Kim, my son when he was 1year old got ear infection fever, and since then that has been constant. He gets ear, throat infection quite often and so ENT checked and found fluid in middle ear and got tubes when he was 2years old. Last year 2015 he got strep throat twice and third time he was given antibiotics shot to get rid of it. And that’s wen our pediatrician said he might be a candidate for PANDAS. And currently now am in india . Got him checked with ENT and they say again fluid in left ear and big tonsils and adenoids. And suggested to remove t g email.

    Doctor suggested to go for surgery. They took xray and say that adenoids and tonsils are big and has to be removed. Just thinking wat to do. And also he says to get tubes again. How much does Doctor Cantzaro charge for consultation? What is the fees. Thanks so much for all your valuable information. I feel that you are God sent in helping our child recover from ASD. Currently he has some much OCD,sensory issues, behaviour problem, excessive hitting.

    Thanks

    hi Kim,
    Thanks you! And so now for the yeast overgrowth (candida albicans) we are giving antifungal (grape fruit seed extract and MCT oil (caprylic acid) basically it’s a organic cold pressed coconut oil and s.boullardi probiotic in the night . and also Enzymetica..digestive spectrum after big meals, and barleans Omega 3 supplement . my question is can all these be given at the same time or with little gap. Am thinking to give antifungal and digestive enzyme during lunch and probiotic/Omega in the night .is that fine. please share your input. also dosage level for digestive enzyme,omega3,and probiotic.

    thanks

    Hi Kim,

    My son had been getting frequent ear infections and strep throat quite often. our Doctor ordered for xray and it showed that he has got swollen adenoids and huge tonsils. so our Doctor suggested for adenoid/tonsills removal and also looked at his ears and said fluid accumulation is more. please share your opinion about it. and how long does it take for the procedure and recovery time.
    thanks

    Hi Kim ,
    My son got his both tonsills and adenoids removed under General Anesthesia. As you have mentioned it was more painful .took almost 2weeks to heal completely . Now am planning to start on probiotic, digestive enzyme during dinner time everyday .and also Omega 3 . is that ok to give them altogether during dinner time.
    thanks

    Hi,
    thanks. My son got insect bites and Doctor prescribed antibiotics . So if I give him probiotics along with antibiotics will that minimise the effect of the medicine or its ok. caN I give both antibiotics and probiotics at same time?

    Hello,

    I currently seeing 2 DAN doctors and seeking a 3rd opinion. My son is improving, however visual stimming and fixation is not improving after a year of Biomeds. You mentioned increased stims during yeast treatment.

    Could you describe the types of stims that increased while on yeast RX?

    Can one test for a leaky gut?

    hi Kim,

    I stopped giving him s.boullardi for like 2days now. he seem to be little ok. may be am thinking I will have to lower the dosage and start back with it again. And also I see that whenever he has anything like a bread, chocolate icecream, pizza, etc he lost his control and cries for unknown reason . what should I do. and also barleans omega swirl how should be given a day

    Hi Kimberly,

    After reviewing your list of supplements and treatments, I didn’t see anything for viral therapy. Did your son have any viral titers elevated?

    If so, what treatment did you use?

    Hi Kimberly,

    I see that your son visits 2 DAN doctors for his treatment. And for the most part, every doctor practices differently and every child’s’ case is different. What treatment(s) or testing did Dr Catanzaro perform that was effective? Same question for Sletton?

    Thanks
