Name:
Cathy February 08, 2017
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
Vaccines
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
Symptoms grew more complex over time. Once it became clear that vaccines had caused the regression, hindsight was illuminating. Our son ran hot coming home from the hospital. This was a reaction to the Hep B vaccination. Following vaccinations resulted in severe head pain which presented between 4-6 months of age, we thought it was teething. That pain still persists for him today at age 2.5

Chronic head pain due to inflammation in the brain - Mercury toxicity. He was able to speak beautifully. After his last vaccine, he went mute for 4 months. When he tried to speak again, he presented like someone who has had a stroke. He slurred and could only get through one syllable in a word. He continues to struggle with speech and pain.

Supplements: Methyl b-12, 5MTH, zinc, turmeric, probiotics. We are continuing to search for necessary treatments.

Name:
Zakariya January 05, 2017
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
Our son's biological mother is layered with tattoos and did not live a healthy lifestyle. Junk food was her only diet. She drank a lot of Coke, smoked and probably did some drugs. Our son has been found to have an extremely high level of mercury and copper in his system. We literally got him at birth (C-section), as they took him from the womb and handed him to me. We have not vaccinated him but he tests positive for vaccination injury (for which bio mom tested positive). He has a lot of food sensitivities. We try to eat healthy diets at home, but are unable to control what he eats at school.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
We recognized he was extremely willful and high-energy at 21 months. At 3 years old, several people commented that he has behavioral disorders and we should get him evaluated. He was dismissed from his private pre-school. At 4 he was diagnosed with Oppositional Defiance Disorder and ADHD.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
Impulsivity (which is typically mean, hurtful, harmful and/or unsafe); Extreme defiance. Both of these vary in intensity, and may be cyclical.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
Staying calm and present, and loving him through it, work when the intensity is not at fever pitch. At high intensity, we have not found anything that has worked. We tried a strict gluten-free diet for 15 months; tried various medications; a strict food-sensitivity diet; brain optimization; dog & play therapy; and so much more, but none worked. We give him NDP drops to pull mercury out of his system.

Speech therapy, school, play groups, healthy diet high in organic plant based and grass fed foods, fresh green juices, humic & fulvic minerals, fermented cod liver oil (although not sure if fermented is a good thing).

She eats a rainbow of raw organic veggies everyday, yet even with an excellent diet, she still suffers from digestive issues. I am hoping a good parasite cleanse and this probiotic will correct the yeast and other digestive issues she has.

What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
I took him to NAET treatment but it hasn’t helped him much..
I believe in probiotics along with Anti Fungals and High potency Multivitamins…
I started using D-lactate free probiotic formula on him since mid April along with Multivitamin called AGAPE(Hypoallergenic) which is also a Custom made Multivitamin for Autistic children..(i never used anti fungal along with these combination).Afetr 20 days of use my 2 year old son started to make Eyecontact and shown some interest in learning new things.IT really works ..But Autistic kids definitely needed extra nutrition because most of them have mal Absorbtion problem(according to some study)..So I definitely believe in Probiotics along with a Good Multivitamin supplement and Anti fungal(if necessary) could help Children with Autism.so It is worth giving a Try..

I was on them when I was pregnant due to a severe scalp infection r/t an allergy. He then had repeated courses due to ear infections and upper respiratory infections from the age of 6 months to 2 years old. (I found herbal remedies that work better than antibiotics so thankfully he hasn’t needed any since)

He loss all of his expressive speech as well as receptive speech. It was as if his brain was erased. He couldn’t talk, nor understand anything anyone else said. He loss muscle tone, he could not wave or use upper body strength. He started spinning and jumping. His eye contact became extremely poor, he started having anxiety attacks, poor sleeping, loose foul smelling stools, and food and enviromental allergies.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
Hyperbaric therapy, Magnesium sulfate, minerals, specific carbohydrate diet (modified – staying away from fructose). Virex seemed to help with speech for about 1 week. He was also given an Antibiotic and Antifungal at the age of 2 to kill bad microbes that may have resulted from gut dysbiosis by an Autism Biomedical Doctor. It seemed to almost pull him out of Autism then the benefits went away after a month. But I have to say ABA, Applied Behavior Analysis has been the most beneficial. I put most things that were erased from his brain back in. I would compare it to rehabilitating a stroke victim that can’t talk or walk.

Name:
Tina(12/24/2012)
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
Vaccinations given too close to antibiotic treatment (given for ear infections) in conjunction with giving Tylenol (to help ease the pain of the vaccination) Yes, I did everything that shouldn’t have been done. But we followed the guidance of our pediatrician and thought we were doing the right thing. One particular round of vaccinations we had just finished up antibiotics and because he had been sick with an ear infection had missed a previous vaccination so we added that onto the scheduled vaccinations for a total of four vaccinations (DTP, IPV, Hib, and Hep B) in one day! Oh if I could go back and space those vaccinations out.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
9months. Previously he was a happy easy going baby. Anyone could hold him. One day (around 9mos old) he abruptly changed in personality. Suddenly everyone was a stranger (except for me) and he would cry if they tried to hold him or push his stroller. He was terrified of strangers. He only tolerated my husband and couldn’t wait to get back to me. I weened him at around that time and suspect that it didn’t help his allergy issues having to switch from breast milk to soy formula.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
Anti social behavior. Major digestive problems, food allergies, and food and chemical sensitivities. Brain fog and ADD. Muscle fatigue.We’ve come a long way with our child. There are many things he doesn’t do anymore. He used to melt down if we didn’t take a specific way on the road, if we didn’t pump our gas at the right pump number, if he couldn’t exit a building through the same exact door he went in, if we lost a piece of a toy, and on and on. He doesn’t do any of that anymore. He actually laughs about it when I tell him that he used to be like that.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
Diet: Feingold diet, Gluten free, Dairy free, Citrus free
Supplements: Probiotics (just discovered the Lactate free product and it’s working much better than our previous probiotic), Methyl B12

Its must have been vacines but the last thing that triggered was antibiotics and candida I think becuase few days after my kid had this stomach eche during the night he started avoiding eye contact and lost his playful attitude and to say his name.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
Thinking back there were some minor unnoticeable sign as the kid looked normal but he used to catch infection fast and had to go through lot of antibiotics and the last time he got sick at 3 years 4 months he started to act crazy thats when we realized something going wrong.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
He has speech problem with few sentences and would give very little response, eye contact which has been regained now, cannot recall him self if you ask who he is but recognizes everbody else, selected IGA deficiency as a result he catches infection very fast if anybody around him is sick.

Name:
Kirsten
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
I believe that my sons condition was caused by several factors: including pesticides, mercury (I believe I was unwittingly exposed during early pregnancy at work, where they broke fluorescent lightbulbs to dispose of them), also amoxicillin I took for a bladder infection while breastfeeding affected his gut which caused him to experience side effects when he received recommended shots. My son has had many encounters with gastroenteritis from the time he was small. Last winter, my child had it a record 4 times…each time was a week long. This seems excessive to us, and is causing us to investigate gut issues further
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
I started seeing a few unusual traits when he was just 8 or 9 months…he would stare at fans for excessive lengths of time and scratch the sides of his stroller repetitively. But he did not lose language until he was 18 months and recieved a 3 shot round of innoculations…then he stopped talking completely the next day.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
Oral sensitivities, excessive eating issues (oral guarding and pickiness), hand and foot sensitivities, language delay, moderate behavior problems, obsessions with cars and certain daily procedures, intermittent constipation and normal stools (always constipated first, then next bm is fine…almost daily).
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
We have tried a ton of things with some minor effects or none at all. However, chelation with DMSA worked incredibly the first time. Other than that, I have given him inositol hexanicotinate and choline to clear pesticides (this caused my child to look “outward” more, and venture outside of his obsessions more). Probiotics seemed to help mostly with the physical part of his problems, but perhaps we were using the wrong type…it has a general spectrum of organisms in it. I did try saccharomyces boulardii once which just constipated him more.

What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
I am still trying different treatment methods and have yet to find one that works. Right now I have started my son on the gaps diet and am seeing some results. The diet takes time to work and I am going to put the time and effort into it. Since I believe that this is caused by severely abnormal gut flora, I believe that this can help him.

What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
e is now 4 1/2 and we are still trying to find treatments that show improvement. He has been in ABA 30 hrs per week for about a year and a half, and we have seen improvement in eye contact in the home environment. He has shown additional improvement in his communication and other areas, but it really hasn’t translated to the home environment yet. We have done several rounds of anti-virals, supplements, probiotics, oxytocin, B-12 shots and B-12 lotion (current), speech and OT, but we still have not found any intervention that has made any significant difference.

Name:
Ruby Q.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
Our son was adopted in Vietnam at 5 months. Vaccinated multiple times due to requirements for adoption. I believe he may have been in a state of health (imbalanced gut flora) before adoption and that the additional environmental assaults (vaccines, formula, etc.) led to autism. The inability to detox the body effectively of heavy metals must have an impact on the neurological aspect of the disorder. So just healing the ‘leaky gut’ state isn’t enough.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
At 14 months after his MMR vaccine.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
He has biomarkers through Great Plains Labs that say he is in a state of dysbiosis for bacteria in his gut. He also flags for IBD and allergy sensitivities to most foods. His symptoms include constipation, irritability, lethargic spaceyness, attention deficits, aggression, regression, frequent allergic response (runny and stuffy nose), repetitive behavior (oral…clicking, mouth opening, jaw clenching) and visual (looking out sides of eyes).
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
We have tried biomedical treatments – supplementation, antifungals and diet. He is in behavioral (ABA), speech, OT, PT and music therapy. I think diet is a bit one, probiotics (no brainer as every other country is more adept at it than us), and the other therapies keep him communicating slightly below typical children’s measurements,

Name:
Lara M.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
y children were completely normal until they came down with PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Strep). The symptoms often mimic autism (sensory and OCD issues), so these children are often misdiagnosed. So, as far as I am concerned, while my children do not have autism, I think there probably are children out there misdiagnosed with autism and they likely have PANDAS as a result of an untreated strep infection. The strep antibodies cross the blood brain barrier and attack the basal ganglia causing all of the bizarre symptoms to suddenly present themselves.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
With my five year old, it was when he was four. With my seven year old, he has had transient tics throughout his toddler years that were probably PANDAS related, but he had a very noticeable exacerbation about six weeks ago causing a huge decline in social skills, OCD and anxiety (tics as well). He has been on antibiotics for four days, and we have already seen a decline in symptoms.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
See above…we also lose fine motor skills when they have been exposed to strep.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
Antibiotics, probiotics, Nystatin to curb yeast, Omega-3’s, Vitamin D, magnesium glycinate, and 5 HTP.

 

Name:
Jennifer W.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
His vaccinations. He was a normal, healthy, talking child. At his 1 year check up he was given: DTaP, HAV (hep A), HIB (Haemophilus INfluenzae b), Flu Shot, MMR-VAR, PNUcn (Pneumococcal) all in one day with a large dose of tylenol. Bryan was a wonderful, intelligent, easy baby with no issues except for tummy problems for months after all of his vaccine visits. After his 1 year visit with 6 immunizations, he became very ill with a 105 fever for days and after that lost the light in his eyes, lost a word a week till there were none. He was dx at 23mos. I am a RN, I know what is normal and when children are ill. My son acted as though he was poisoned. SO, I am recovering him with Andrew Cutler Chelation protocol, low and slow method chelation by mouth, along with good probiotics, organic foods, gfcf diet, excellent supplements- water soluable dosed 3-4 times per day and fat dosed once (to half-life). He is getting better.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
Hours after his 1 year vaccinations, he became ill. It took weeks of the fevers, lethargy, horrific stools, crying and the doctors telling me it was normal and ‘toddler diarrhea’. He lost his soul and speech, one word at a time. He was 24months by the time he had no language. He has is back now.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
ead banging, flapping, visual stimms, screaming tantrums, anger, space case, toe walking, grunts no words. Most are gone now since chelation, we are on round 15 with a good yeast protocol, bacteria control and anti-virals too. He no longer stimms. He talks with a delay. Everyday he gets better and better. Usual rounds for recovery (the people I know that have) is 100-300rounds. We have a ways to go. : )
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
Being an RN, getting clinician 1 DAN training, understanding the immune system, recognizing the need for physical illness help more than therapy has helped my child to get better faster than most I am sure. But a safer way as well. I don’t use DAN protocol chelation, it is not safe, it is not dosed to the half-life of the chelators which can cause horrible movement and shifting of metals in the body. With AC Chelation, the double thiol chelator of either DMPS, DMSA or ALA (ALA crosses BBB) by mouth only and dosed in a round (every 6 hours for a week for DMPS and a 72hour period for DMSA and ALA dosed every 3 hours) according to the half-life of the chelator. This removes metals safer than the DAN every 8 hours or more protocol and a larger dose than AC. Doses for chelation ranges about 1/8mg to 1mg per lb, when DAN doses can be 150mg per dose! Scary. I am seeing wonderful gains from my son. I feel strongly he will recover. By recover, I mean no need for gfcf, no supplements except normal vitamins, probiotics, no therapy, no special ed. I know it can happen. I was told my son would never speak or care who I was. This morning he ran into my room, jumped on the bed and said, “wake up mommy! I pee pee in the bed!” LOL. He also says “I love you!” Bryan is 4 years old on 11/27. He is happy and getting better everyday. This will be a long haul but totally worth it. Thanks for your products, they help a lot.

Leslie B.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
I think they were genetically predisposed to not being able to tollerate toxins in the environment and the toxins and viruses in their immunizations. Their bodies weren’t strong enough to fight off the viruses and they weren’t able to rid the toxins from their bodies.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
My daughter was 9 months old, and my son from birth
What are the major symptoms of your child?
My daughter has major social deficits. She doesn’t understand teasing, body language or anything other than straight forward literal language. She has allergies to many foods and environmental allergies. She has IBS, she has major learning disabilities, and dysgraphia. She has low muscle tone, poor small motor skills, and rigidity of spine and limbs. She has poor eyesight and a “lazy eye”. She doesn’t sleep without medication, and she needs medication to control rage. My son is severely socially limited, but highly intelligent. He doesn’t know how ot interact socially at all, but wants to. He needs medication for sleep. He needs medication for depression and rage. He has IBS. He has allergies to many foods and environmental allergies. He used to have severe asthma until we started the GFCF diet. He has low muscle tone, poor motor skills,poor coordiantion, and poor vision.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
GFCF soy free diet, as well as removing other food allergens. Probiotics, TMG, Magnesium, Calcium, Cod liver oil, Olive Leaf Extract, Grapeseed Extract, Clonodine for sleep, abilify for one child for rage, risperdal for other child for rage.

 

Name:
Angie F.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
I believe that my son’s PDD-NOS was triggered by leaky gut. Although he never has had antibiotics (though I was for 10 days with a bout of mastitis when he was a month old – so I guess he could have gotten some through my milk), was not a c-section baby and was breast fed until 18months, he did have constant sinus colds, along with major diarrhea alternating with constipation. He would get sandy stools, mucus in his diapers etc. Something was clearly not right.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
Prior to age 1 I noticed “startles” which were later diagnosed as myoclonic seizures. I noticed behavioral oddities around 1yr of age – didn’t play with toys correctly, dragged his fingers on the walls, wouldn’t sit to read a story etc; but the loss of eye contact, increased self stimulatory behavior (hand flapping, sensory seeking etc), drunken gait, and the eventual “drugged out absent look” was very obvious by 16-17 months.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
First, he has myoclonic seizures. He also “pushed” furniture around (probably trying to get pressure on his belly), had sour, foul, acrid diarrhea alternating with constipation, lack of playing appropriately with toys, was non verbal – not even babbling – just high pitched squealing, he lost eye contact and sociability, had no interest in stories or sitting in laps, he was constantly moving. The only time he sat still was in high chair or car seat. He is still like that but to a lesser degree.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
I didn’t notice what a problem dairy was until I put him on the GF/CF diet and months later tried to re-introduce it. We got all of that diarrhea, sandy stools, mucus etc immediately and went from some babbling back to no sounds except for squealing and he started flapping his hands and stimming more.
Kirkman’s acidophilus powder even at 1/4tsp/day made him have a severe herxheimer reaction – so we assumed yeast, but he didn’t tolerate the product well at all. We give him Syntol now which is a probiotic/yeast cleanse and he does well on it and doesn’t have any die off reaction, but stool tests show that he still has NO GROWTH of good bacteria (lactobaccillus, bifidum etc) on culture as well as presence of harmful bacteria and his urine test has yeast metabolites so we know he has yeast. He also had a stool test when he was 18 months old, but was on the Kirkman probiotics at the time. The levels of good bacteria were 1+ so I am assuming without the probiotics it would have been more similar to this latest test.
I don’t have a solution yet – I am hoping D-free will help. I do not understand why he has such low counts of good bacteria!! I am interested in seeing what he might be like when his bacteria are better. He declines dramatically when we take him of the Syntol even for a couple of days, so there has to be some connection between his behavior and his gut.

Name:
Leslie B.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
I’m positive the biggest factor was vaccinations. I saw immediate and dramatic responses in both my ASD children. Both got extremely ill every time, and their personality and happiness and involvement started to disappear, they got rancid diarrhea and bloody stools and butts.My son even went comatose for about an hour with a fever of 104. My youngest child is my only nuerotypical child.I didn\’t know anything about vaccines or autism at the time I had her. She was born as we were moving from Maine to texas. She was born in a military hospital and they tend to be a little more laid back, and leave the burden of responsibility to the patient. When my daughter was born we had to close on our house the next day, so we checked out of the hospital early promising to get her shots the following day. She didn\’t get that first day Hep B shot. The Navy clinic ended up not being able to see her for three weeks. I think both of those circumstances saved my youngest child from being autistic. Just that little bit of a waiting period. I also had no vaccinations when I was pregnant with her, but I did the other two. My NT child has the same gut issues as my older children. She also has PANDAS and major yeast overgrowth and many food sensitivities. I believe if I would have had injections while pregnant, and she had her first day immunizations that she would be autistic as well. She\’s not. She is a social butterfly in gifted classes. Vaccines took my older children\’s lives and happiness away from them, and I\’m going to get them back:)
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
I was a very young mother. I had my first child when I was 19.It was 1995. I knew nothing about autism, and didn\’t for many years. I thought it was funny that my daughter never crawled, she rolled everywhere. When she finally did walk she was a toe walker until she turned 11, and still does it on occasion. She started having violent temper tantrums when she was 9 months old. We say that\’s when her horns came out:) I just thought it was normal, I\’d heard of the terrible twos…I just thought she was advanced:)When she was three she became extremely violent and destructive and withdrawn. This coincided with ehr father being deployed for the first time. I have bipolar disorder and I thought she did too. She had rage, she seemed to get depressed and withdrawn. So she was diagnosed as bipolar at three. My son was different from the get go. He was born in 1998, the year they introduced the first day Hep B shot. He screamed and cried and yanked his legs constantly. He had bloody stools and butt. He got pneumonia at three weeks old. He had eczema all over his body and face. He\’d constantly get bizarre rashes and he was constantly ill. He was also terrified of everything. I literally carried him everywhere…washing dishes, vacuuming, even in the shower if my husband wasn\’t there to pull him off me. He woke up terrified all the time. He projectile vomited all the time. He would scream in terror as he entered the preschool years and we tried to take him to school. We thought he was bipolar too. So he was diagnosed at age three as bipolar
What are the major symptoms of your child?
Both are high functioning…if you can call it that. They speak, they attend school. My son was able to stop wearing pull ups to bed when he turned 11 years old. My daughter has low muscle tone, dysgraphia, learning disabilities, no concept of social situations, poor motor coordination, OCD on occasion…maybe PANDAS. She has 18 food sensitivities. She has clostridium overgrowth, very high oxalic acid, 4+ gamma hemolytic strep, 4+ Alpha Hemolytic strep and a billion other gut, inflammation, immune and viral issues.She has bifocals and a \”lazy eye\”, and can\’t hear out of her left ear.I could go on and on. My son had such severe and constant bowel pain that he was diagnosed with ulcers. He had asthma and allergies so badly that he was on 5 allergy meds, a nebulizer, and two inhalers and still wasn\’t well. When we started GFCF it all went away!! No allergies, no asthma, no exczema and no stomach pain!!! He has major anxiety that is lessened with medication. He still throws up often and has poo issues:) He also has the strep that my daughter has, also major yeast overgrowth, high oxalic acid, high coproporphyrins. He has extreme behavior issues at home and school. He has a severe stutter. He has no concept of social situations, but is aware that he\’s different.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
GCFC IS AWESOME!!! That was our first turning point. That\’s when they started to feel better and get better. Then I learned more, we tested more and tried more things.We are now GFCF soy free, yeast free, and low sugar…everything organic.They also take Cod liver oil, probiotics, colostrum, multivitamin, milk thistle and digestive enzymes. So far doing a yeast detox diet along with diflucan has given us the most major changes. Both children are more aware of themselves and their surroundings. They\’re calmer and rarely have anger issues. They\’re both doing far better acedemically. We\’re still new to biomedical treatments so that\’s all the answers I have for now. They both need B vitamins, but neither can tolerate them. They both need methyl b-12 shots, but can\’t tolerate them.

Name:
Cindy
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
My son had a stroke at birth resulting in cerebral palsy, hemiparesis. No autism signs/symptoms until age 3 after suffering his one and only seizure. While inutero, my water broke at 19 weeks and was put on antibiotics to combat infection. Infection set in at 30 weeks and delivered my son. We were both put on high dosages of antibiotics. While a premature baby, the hospital gave him his first hepatitus shot even after I instructed them I would rather wait until his weight improved. He was only 3 pds, 12 oz. Therefore, I truly believe it was the \’perfect storm\’ with my son. Prematurity, high dosages of antibiotics, stroke and now seizures.

No one trigger, just a steady downward spiral from repeated onslaughts to child’s health.
Mother’s adrenal fatigue, gut imbalance, stress during pregnancy, oxalate sensitivity.
Drastic change in mother’s diet at time of birth (removed nuts from diet) produced huge oxalate dump in child, causing severe acid reflux.
Through breastfeeding, child exposed to mother’s adrenal hormones, caused profound sleep difficulties.
Child received extended course of antibiotics at 2 months and did OK until stopping probiotics, then had blood in stool.
Vaccinations at 2, 4, 6 months resulted in hysterical screaming for days and profound sleep disturbance.
Profound marital stress due to very ill child made child more ill and unsettled.

Name:
Jessica A.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
At first I thought it was just the way he was. But after researching tonight, I think it was triggered by antibiotics and candida. I’ve had chronic yeast infections since I was 15. In addition, my son, now 6, had gotten into a bottle of antibiotics I was on when I was 8 months pregnant – I had not screwed the cap on tight enough. I don’t know how much he ingested, but after the ER trip they insisted he’d be fine, just probably tummy upsets and vomiting for a day. he was 11 months old at the time.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
at his 2 year well check.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
Language delays, agression (when not on his precribed medication) social delays, over emotional, anxiety, hypersensitivy to sound, tactile, not co ordinated…still walks on tippy toes when barefoot.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
The only treatment we have done is risperdal, special education, and monitoring with his pediatrician. I think now that it might be candida related.

What are the major symptoms of your child?
He is 4.5 yrs. old and acts as if he is in his Terrible Twos…he doesn\’t speak, he speaks in memorized phrases, he is just now feeling his hands/feet, when he eats dairy/gluten he becomes super sensitive and becomes hyper and aggressive and unrealistic, he doesn\’t understand cause and effect, he undergoes many biomedical treatments..we haven\’t found a probiotic that doesn\’t cause him to go super hyper..hence the traces of dairy involved..
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
Biomedical. Enzymes really help! Mineral supplementation. His GFCF and starch free diet ie. SCD diet. All work and when off of these, he goes all the way back to where we started with him. His labs came back as having ZERO beneficial bacteria. We keep trying to find a probiotic that doesn\’t cause hyper-aggression due to traces of dairy found in them…

Name:
Lisa S.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
He was vaccinated in between antibiotic treatments for chronic ear infections. From what I have read he comes from a family tree of both poor methylators( depression, alcoholism, suicide, alzheimers) and auto immune problems (rheumatoid arthritis).
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
Around 18-19 months. Prior to that we have 1,000s of pictures where our son would look directly at the camera and smile. He would then look at the screen of the digital camera and point to himself. He kicked and threw a ball back and forth, he opened presents and clapped for his first Christmas at 7 months old. Said \”Good, Good, Good\”, \”Eat\”, Momma & Dadda by 12 months. By the following year the eye contact had diminished and he wasn\’t interested in any of his presents. He was getting ear infections about every 2 weeks so we initially blamed it on him not feeling well. We had broken up all his vaccinations and made sure all of them were mercury free.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
He is now 3 years old and has very little language, a sing songy voice, He stimms on wheels, flapps his arms and jumps when excited. He toe walks.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
He has drastically improved since we started taking him to a DAN doctor at 2 1/2. He is currently on probiotics (is helping his gut issues but we are now ordering your product because the previous product lost its effectiveness), cod liver oil, fish oil, digestive enzymes (started sleeping through the night immediately with this therapy), multi amino acids, DMG, C, Zinc, Glutathione cream (language has started to get clearer with this treatment), MB12 shots (socialization has improved, eye contact has improved and he started babbling and saying some words.) He did a 3 month course of nystatin for yeast which was working at first (he increased his diet) but seemed to cause constipation around the 2 month mark.

Name:
Ernie P.
What factors or causes do you think triggered Autism in your child?
Mother had dental amalgams; antibiotics used at 8 months and 11 months due to ear infections and wiped out gut flora; genetic testing has revealed polymorphysims that reduce ability to detox – missing gene for glutathione in liver/kidney and COMT– leads to undermethylation; vaccines – flue shot in particular, that still have thimerosal have led to noticeable damage in behavior and speech.
At what age did you first realize that something was wrong with your child?
Lagged peers in language development from 18 months to 33 months. At 33 months we suspected Autism and behavior spiraled downward . At 37 months we were sure he had autism and started treatments. He was diagnosed at 40 months with severe ASD.
What are the major symptoms of your child?
Still lags in expressive language – far behind his 3 year old sister and cannot converse. Tantrums are infrequent but intense. Repetitive behaviors – likes to watch scenes of DVD movies over and over and over. Stimming with small toys. No desire to form friendships – does not understand the concept. Hands over ears with loud noises. Medical includes constipation (3 BM per week), eczema (much improved over past), numerous food sensitivities, skin rashes and red ears when we try \”new\” foods; low in essential amino acids, metals imbalances, immunity issues especially evidence of viral titers.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
Starting the GFCF diet gave noticeable improvement. Managing diet. Methyl-B12 +follinic acid shots may be helping with speeach but the improvement is very slight. Chelation – IV and transdermal – has somewhat correlated with his best months and the post-IV chelation urine metals tests show significant amounts of lead and small amounts of mercury, cadmium, aluminum and others being removed. Have used Custom Probiotics D-lactate free but have actually seen an increase in yeast markers on OAT analysis during this period along with regression in behavior. This was due to use of oral chelators at the same time. We are going back to your product while sticking with transdermal chelators. Curcumin recently introduced and seems to be having a positive effect in behavior. Has been recently described as \’high-functioning\’ exactly 2 years after original diagnosis.

What are the major symptoms of your child?
Hello,
My son Nickolaus has had a vaccine injury. Attached are before and after pics of him.
Before last round of vaccines pics and after pics -His story is below……………………The pediatrician refused to document that Nick’s sudden issues were shot related:- Suddenly allergic to everything/ sudden eczema- Decline in speech, then no speech- Decline in motor skills- Lethargy- Night terrors- Constant infectionsAll events occurred suddenly within 30 days of his last round of immunizations.
She asked, “Did he bump his head?”
She sent me to a neurologist. Nick then had an MRI of the brain, CAT of the brain, eeg, overnight stay sleep study, and a variety of brain tests. All findings were negative as I expected.
I told her he showed signs of autism after his shots.
She then stated, “Let’s not blame it on the shots.”
Prior to the shots, I told her I was very concerned about the vaccine/autism epidemic.
She stated, “look at him Kim. He’s not autistic he is developing normally, making eye contact, and talking. He is clearly NOT autistic. You have nothing to worry about.”
……. 30 days later….
– allergic to everything/ sudden eczema
– decline in speech, then no speech
– decline in motor skills
– lethargy
– night terrors
– constant infections
……. and the rest is history.
What treatments do you think worked best for your child?
colostrum, lauricidin, enzymes with isogest from kirkmanlabs, secretin, charged alkaline water altering the ph(significant improvement- call me i’ll tell you allll about it! 972-XXX-XXXX) … probiotics, multivit, cod liver oil, zinc, meth-b12 shots, l-glutamine, taurine, and gaba. with occasional ememas(obvious results right after enema) He has almost recovered…… it has been a year.
Nick is 2 3/4 yrs old. WE ARE GONNA BEAT THIS THING!
Pls keep him in your prayers.
thank you.
