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 =-)
2014 8-OHdG Went into normal ranges!
Mitochondrial dysfunction, Need for Methylation, and Toxic Exposure.
2014 – All normal range now! We did a liver cleanse, added CoQ-H, and kept with the TMG
2014 Magnesium was border line, now normal. Zinc was border line, now normal
The B Vitamins
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.
2012 – Pretty much bad all over…..
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.
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.
My son Anthony at 6 years old. A very talkative, happy, active boy that has recovered from autism spectrum disorder
