Today begins an amazing series on Natural Healing Stories! I have been wanting to share these incredible, encouraging stories for some time now. The chance is here! When you have chronic health problems, hope is often a distant memory. Let these stories infuse hope and courage into those of you who are struggling with your bodies, or the family and friends you love who are in desperate need of healing.
Healing From Autism
I am so pleased to share with you an interview of a really amazing mama I met a couple of years ago. When I met her another friend had told me that her son was diagnosed with autism, but ‘lost his diagnosis’. I was AMAZED. I picked her brain and asked her a million questions about what she did to help her son’s body recover from such dysfunction. I watched as her son played with my son of the same age and would have never been able to tell that he was even close to an autism spectrum disorder. I’ve moved away from this friend, but have enjoyed keeping in touch with her and seeing how her lovely family is doing. I am so pleased to share some of her healing story with you here on Mindful Mama.
Tell us briefly when you first starting noticing your son was ‘sick’?
After Fosters 12 month shots…which were done at 13 months…he legs swelled right away. That same night. .he struck a fever of 104…we went to emergency room. .they couldn’t explain why. Foster knew how to say about 10 words. Such as mama, dada, up, kiki for kitty, ball, go etc…within a few days he would look at me & try to say Mama, and he could.only get out mmmmmmm…then by 3 weeks quit talking.
What official diagnosis did he receive from the medical field? How did they come to that?
I decided to take Foster to a private psychologist in Charleston. I didn’t want to wait for SC waiting list… We took Foster at 16 months. ..she diagnosed him with Autism.
In your opinion, what treatments (natural or conventional) have provided you the best results?
Right away we started the GFCF (gluten-free, casein free) diet…1st no milk..his eye contact was coming back…he laughed again. .my heart was jumping for joy…my baby was coming back to me!!!
Took out all gluten next…speech was coming…Yay!!!
We also use bio-medical supplements. ..this helps his gut & immune system fight back and helps him focus.
We did every therapy known to man kind. EI, OT, PT, SPEECH, ABA ,TALKING TURNS ,HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY & sensory therapy. ..
All were amazing. ..sensory therapy was the strangest…but it brought back a lot of Fosters senses of touch…he never hugged or kissed anyone…gave you his forehead to kiss & hugged you backwards…giving you his back…he wouldn’t wear a hat…after this 8 week course every day 2x daily. ..
Foster wore a hat…Foster kissed me on the lips…Foster hugged me…I cant tell you the joys of what some people take for granted!!!!
What treatments (natural or conventional) have caused the most problems or brought about little healing?
None…all were good…my hope is that moms don’t ever give up!!!
I beat this …so can you!!!
Your present condition: What symptoms/issues are you still trying to get past? What symptoms are no longer a problem for you any longer?
Foster has been mainstream since he was in 4K…he’s still on the diet. .still receives OT & ABA, and takes the nutritional supplements.
FOSTER IS A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY..GETS IN TROUBLE LIKE A TYPICAL KID FOR TALK ING DURING CLASS..WE BARLEY HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS
He jumps a lot when he gets excited and he says his favorite subject is NASCAR.
What encouragement would you offer to those seeking natural healing from medical problems in their life right now?
PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP…fight for your loved ones!!!
And please remember you have rights…and you don’t have to vaccinate if you don’t feel comfortable doing so. There are either religious or philosophical waivers in almost every state for school/daycare.
