    How Diana Turned Her Son’s Autism Diagnosis Around

    How Diana Turned Her Son’s Autism Diagnosis Around

    Diana was once very skeptical when she heard it was possible to reverse her son’s diagnosis of autism. More importantly, she wanted her son to be able to talk to her, to sleep, focus in a classroom, to have the ability to be calm, and make friends. Today he has all that and more.
    At age 2, Diana’s son was diagnosed with severe speech delay. At age 5, he had only two-word sentences, couldn’t sleep well, was not socializing, had very picky eating habits (only ate one type of food), screamed and threw tantrums all day long, was anxious and aggressive, and cried a lot. He was in special ed classes and not able to focus. He was not happy, to say the least.
    At age 4, Diana took her son in for assessment and he was diagnosed with autism. At that point she was told it would be a year before she could get her son into an appointment with her doctor.
    Diana read Karen’s story of her own success bringing her son to recovery from his symptoms of autism, and read the many testimonials from other parents that Karen had helped to get vast improvements with their children. Diana learned of Karen’s mentoring membership program that supported parents in over 40 countries.
    DianaCf herself, that she is a skeptic by nature and needs to research everything. “I am a public health researcher by profession, with a very analytical eye. Your program is all inclusive and the information is quite easy to understand even by anyone who does not have any health background.”
    In Diana’s own words:
    I was very devastated when my 4 year old son was diagnosed with “autism symptoms”. After the diagnosis and in desperation, I spoke to myself and said: “for sure, this is it… autism like symptoms with my son! Nonetheless, I know he will recover from this and lead a normal life”. That’s not denial as some may think. It is called “FAITH”. As a mother, I knew that I needed to be strong in order to help my son as I trust God. I was very positive and ready to walk through the healing journey of my son.
    As I desperately researched for information and programs online in order to help my son, I landed on Karen Thomas’ autism mom mentor program. I contacted Karen immediately and asked her a “million” questions about the program. It looked too good to be true and kind of a hoax! I was very hesitant to join the program. As I chatted with Karen (through emails), I researched on the information (supplements, foods, healing gut process etc.) provided by Karen in order to authenticate the facts.
    I did lots of reading on my own to understand autism and its healing processes that Karen talked about. There was no pressure from Karen at all – she just narrated the journey of her son’s healing from autism. I took more than a month researching on autism recovery processes and trying to comprehend Karen’s program. Without any doubts, I joined the autism mom mentor program and religiously followed the recommendations of the program step by step, following everything religiously in the program.”

    The Health Benefits of Quinton Trace Minerals with Robert Slovak

    The Health Benefits of Quinton Trace Minerals with Robert Slovak

    Mineral deficiency is prevalent in children with autism. Actually, it’s prevalent in most people today because our the soil our food is grown in is so depleted. A deficiency in trace minerals is the core of so many issues that can be continuing to keep your child at bay from really getting well. Impaired children need this more because they don’t utilize trace minerals well.
    Even what we think is healthy organic food has been grown in mineral deficient soil. That means your food is not giving you adequate amounts of the necessary minerals and nutrition needed for optimum health.
    Scientist, Rene Quinton, recognized the biological and energetic properties of one, very specific phytoplankton bloom naturally occurring in only one place in the ocean. He extracted these trace minerals from a a protected part of the Bay of Bascay off the coast of Spain and France.
    This particular area has a plankton bloom with both phytoplankton and Zooplankton. Sunlight then converts this bloom into the exact combination of minerals, amino acids, nucleic acids and more. What this means is that the 78 minerals contained within this sea water were in specific ratios that are very similar to that within the human plasma. This bloom then communicates with our cells for proper function.
    The human body does not make these trace minerals, yet must have them for transmitting nerve impulses, muscle contraction, blood sugar regulation, nail, hair, skin and bone health, electrolyte balance, hydration and energy production.
    Scientists tell us there are 16 minerals that are necessary for survival, but we need 78 to thrive. Quinton contains all 78. They are a natural seawater source, so they taste like salt water, and they come in small vials. You can the Isotonic Quinton minerals once a day, or a couple a day, if you like.
    Robert Slovak’s Biography:   
    Robert Slovak is a degreed Mechanical and Astronautical engineer, best known as the co-founder, with his brother Jack, of Water Factory Systems in the early 1970’s. He is recognized as one of the key developers of Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology and its numerous applications.

    What Causes Autism and What You Can Do About It

    What Causes Autism and What You Can Do About It

    Autism is called a spectrum disorder because no two people with autism have the same exact symptoms. It’s a long spectrum with one end being those who are higher  functioning and the other end being those who are very low functioning. The meaning behind the word “functioning” depends on their ability to navigate through life. Some symptoms simply make life more challenging.
    For example, a very high functioning individual was once referred to as having “Aspergers Syndrome”. This term was first described in 1944 by Austrian physician Hans Asperger.  In 2013,  The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–5), removed the term Aspergers, and placed this diagnosis under an umbrella of autism spectrum disorders, lesser defining it.
    How do health issues contribute to the symptoms of autism?
    A study in The Journal of Neuroscience, Gut Microbes and the Brain: Paradigm Shift in Neuroscience, found that, “alterations in the gut microbiome may play a pathophysiological role in human brain diseases, including autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain”. The gut directly affects the ability of the brain to function. Bacteria in the gut communicate with the brain, and the neurotransmitters, brain messengers, are made in the gut. The gut also makes up 80% of the immune system. Conclusion: the gut controls the brain and the immune system.
    What You Can Do
    Many parents ask for my help. I like to begin with the first step in healing the gut, diet. Yes, autism recovery is much more than diet alone and it’s why many parents fall short of optimum results thinking that is all there is. Here we begin with diet then move forward from there.

    The Autism Heme Dysregulation and Mast Cell Link with Dr. Beth O’Hara

    The Autism Heme Dysregulation and Mast Cell Link with Dr. Beth O’Hara

    How can heme pathway dysregulation cause issues in Autism?
    Porphyria is a build up of toxins in the blood due to a heem pathway dysregulation. Porphyria are iron-containing heme which permits hemoglobin oxygen transportation in the blood. It is triggered by many things including fasting, genetics, nutrient imbalance, rapid detoxification, candida, Lyme, viruses, mold, heavy metals, glyphosate and other toxic insult. The technical name is Kryptopyrroles porphyrins, also referred to as Kryptopyrroluria (KPU).
    This also triggers mast cell activation. Mast cells are types of white blood cells that help to regulate the immune system. Mast cells can determine how our bodies react to environmental triggers like sugar, pesticides, perfume, pollution, and other causes of inflammation.
    Detoxifying for people with KPU must be done VERY slowly. Even the candida cleansing diet that removes sugars and processed carbohydrates can trigger a KPU response. The toxin release may also trigger an autoimmune response of PANS/PANDAS, since a Staphylococcus infection contributes to a build up of porphyrins. There is an accumulation of porphyrins and pyrrole pigments by Staphylococcus.
    Some symptoms of kryptopyrroles porphyrins (KPU)
    Rapid triggered extreme anxiety from the removal of sugars and carbs
    heightened skin sensitivity, especially to sunlight,
    cannot tolerate fasting or intermittent fasting,
    panic attacks,
    bowel issues of either constipation or diarrhea,
    hallucinations,
    chronic pain,
    cannot tolerate low carbohydrate or low sugar diet/candida diet (until heem pathways are balanced),
    very low zinc levels. A common copper to zinc ratio imbalance.
    sleep disruption
    abdominal pain
    back pain
    Dr. Beth O’Hara’s biography
    Beth O’Hara is a Functional Naturopath, specializing in complex chronic immune conditions related to Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and Histamine Intolerance. She is the founder and owner of Mast Cell 360, a Functional Naturopathy Practice designed to look at all factors surrounding health conditions – genetic, epigenetic biochemical, physiological, environmental, and emotional. Her subspecialties are Mold Toxicity and Genetic Analysis in the area of Mast Cell Activation and Histamine Intolerance.

    Autism and Leaky Gut Syndrome

    Autism and Leaky Gut Syndrome

    What is leaky gut syndrome and why should a parent with autism be knowledgeable about it? Leaky gut is just as it sounds…the gut, or intestinal lining has holes that have been torn in it. These holes allow undigested foods into the bloodstream where the immune system sees them as toxic agents to attack.
    From this immune response we end up with multiple allergies to foods and a cascade of inflammation that creates a myriad of health issues, including deregulating brain function affecting sleep, mood, appetite, ability to focus and learn, malabsorption of nutrients, depleted minerals, and overall systemic toxicity from foods and pathogenic bacteria. Let’s take a look at each and what you can do about it.
    Some common causes of leaky gut
    Gluten (the protein in wheat) causes intestinal permeability. Also know that gluten free does not mean it’s healthy. Processed carbohydrates turn to sugar in the body and contribute to allow pathogenic bacteria to thrive. Sugars are also inflammatory.
    Glyphosate is the harmful herbicide that is sprayed on our food crops, especially wheat, and it destroys the gut lining.
    Casein is the protein in cow’s milk. Cow’s milk contains the bad A1 protein, has a lot of natural sugar in it and like gluten, it is inflammatory. Additionally, gluten and casein create opiates in the body so your child becomes addicted to them.

    The Top 10 Things Every Parent Of A Child With Autism Should Know

    The Top 10 Things Every Parent Of A Child With Autism Should Know

    How I Got Here
    It wasn’t all that long ago, that my son still had all of his symptoms of autism. He’d wake up screaming in pain in his stomach at 2AM, and I didn’t know why. He had emotional outbursts and tantrums. He’d have a hard time focusing in school and sensory issues and anxiety that made it hard to sit still. When people say things like, how can you want to change a child with autism? I ask them if they would want to live with those symptoms. Does that sound like a happy, and comfortable life? Could they even begin to share their positive contributions with the world when their anxiety and depression is so debilitating? Do they yearn for friends but don’t know how to make them or are treated like an outcast or even bullied?
    This is what I wanted to change, and fortunately, it did. Today, all of those symptoms my son once had are gone. He is no longer even diagnosable. He’s calm, easy going, just graduated from college, he’s happy, and healthy. He has a ton of great friends who love being with him, and he’s comfortable being with them. He’s a writer whose passionate about writing science fiction and fantasy novels, and possibly writing for gaming companies. This may have not been possible before I began my own research and went down the path to find the causes of his symptoms of autism so I could work with them directly, not mask them with dangerous drugs like the doctors and therapists advised me. Yes, that’s right, their answer was to drug him and try behavioral therapies and wished me good luck and told me we’d be managing his symptoms the rest of his life. They told me he could not recover. People today still believe autism recovery is not possible. When I hear that I say, “Oh yea, well, talk to my son.”
