What do you mean by recovery? 
I need more info.

If your child has slipped behind the mask of autism and you’re looking to bring him or her back, you’re in the right place.

Science shows us that at the root of the behavioral symptoms known as Autism Spectrum Disorder are many internal disruptions.

What's Underneath the Surface
Chronic infections and their toxins, heavy metal toxicity, pesticides, herbicides, hormone-mimicking toxins from plastics, bedding chemicals and flame retardants, inflammation and disrupted detoxification systems all contribute to the symptoms known as autism.

If your child is very sensitive (and most I see are), then many forms of stimulation are amplified, too much for the nervous system to handle. For example – crowds, places with strong smells, too much noise, too many visitors or activities, the pace is too fast.

This “too much” causes even more internal stress and keeps the body in fight or flight mode, interrupting healing. Does your son ever seem “wired but tired”, hyper, yet unable to sleep or calm down? Even if stress is not outwardly apparent, its likely the internal systems are stressed.

Family Dynamics
A special needs/special diet/sensitive child affects the entire family. Food preparation, activities, timing, therapy sessions, outings – whether or not to go out – may create family tension.

Emotions play a huge role in the body, though in our society, we rarely recognize this aspect of healing. Anger, sadness, fear – these emotions have a chemical signature in the body. Experiences in the womb, the birth process, post-natal and beyond all have an emotional impact on a person’s body. What looks like fun and playing to one person could be traumatic for another. Think back to your child’s emotional history, and your own, especially when you were pregnant. Are there instances of trauma, grief, hardship?

Get Guidance

Get guidance from an experienced professional immediately.

This will save you time, money, energy, worry, stress! It may even save your own life as well as your marriage. You may not know this yet, but most parents who embark on this journey spend tons of money, deplete their energy, and feel very stressed out.


First, take a big breath in, and sigh it out. You don’t have to be one of the stressed out parents! You can have your child back. Remember a few things.

You are NOT alone. You will need HELP.

You need the HELP of an EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL, one who has helped children shift undesirable behaviors, become calm, communicative, connected, become fully engaged in life who had helped children lose their diagnosis. You want someone who has the training, expertise and experience specifically in autism recovery.

The road to recovery can be long, but needn’t be made longer by

  • guessing what to do
  • trying a new supplement you heard about in a Facebook group that helped some kids, or
  • going from doctor to doctor who didn’t really help or made things worse.

What you can do now

  • Get Help: Book a Next Steps Discovery Consult where you can ask about next steps for your child and get strategies to use NOW.
  • Listen to medical experts: Listening to doctors who specialize in autism recovery can be invaluable. There are many good doctors, but unless autism is their specialty, there may be a lot they don't know.  We offer a Doctors Panel video interview that may be helpful to you. Find out more.
  • Find Community: Join our Facebook and Instagram pages. This is a great way to connect with other parents who are helping their children improve the symptoms of autism.
