Our 7 year old daughter, was diagnosed with Autism at 19 mos. old, immediately after her 3rd flu shot and 2nd MMR. By the time she was diagnosed she had received 36 vaccines, had numerous back to back ear infections, many different antibiotics and went from eating veggies & fruit to eating bread, yogurt, french fries and chicken nuggets.
Around the age of 2 1/2 we started with a DAN doctor. Over the next 3 1/2 years we did allergy treatments (NAET), viral treatments (Valtrex, Virastop), chelation, 100’s of supplements, 600+ hours of Feeding Therapy and HBOT. We always had 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. She was what they call a ‘tough nut’ in the biomedical world.
HBOT was the straw that broke the camels back. The first 40 sessions went well but around the 50th session, things went horribly wrong. She regressed. She started high pitched screaming, especially when other children spoke. Things were just awful. That was in February 2007. The next 2 years were by far, the worst years of our lives. We stopped all biomedical treatments and just tried to get her back to where she was before the HBOT incident. By the summer of 2009, we couldn’t take anymore. The poop smearing, the constant screaming, the night wakings, the food cravings……our family was falling apart. Literally. In June of 2009, I hate to even admit this, we went looking for Residential Homes to put our 6 year old daughter in. When it came time to sign the paperwork, my heart just wouldn’t let me do it. I knew in my heart that she was in there. We had seen glimpses of the real her in the past. I knew she wasn’t screaming all day & night for no reason. There just had to be SOMETHING that could help her and heal her.
I started researching homeopathy which led me to Mary. I watched her videos from the Autism One conference. And then I watched it again. And again. It all made sense. All these years, we had been putting a bandaid on her issues but we weren’t really fixing the actual issues. We had our first appointment with Mary in February 2010. Once we started her on the remedies and supplements, things went EXACTLY as Mary had told me they would. Everything that she has said would happen, actually happened. We are exactly 3 months into homotoxicology with Mary and we couldn’t be happier with our daughter’s progress. A month ago, I came across some beginner books that my older child read in 1st grade. I was going to pack them up, in hopes of our daughter learning to read one day, and I set them on the table. We decided to have her sit down that night and see if she could recognize any words. She proceeded to read the ENTIRE BOOK!!! We, of course, all started to cry. We never thought our daughter would talk, moreless read. She has slept through the night every night for the past 5 weeks and that alone is worth it’s weight in gold (I have been sleep deprived for many, many years), she’s eating veggies, fruit & other healthy foods. The screaming at children’s voices is 90% gone. Things are just going so well and we couldn’t be happier. I used to want recovery ‘yesterday’. I thought the faster the better. But I have realized that it takes time to undo the damage that has been done. Slow & steady wins the race!
I can’t wait to write my next testimonial a year from now – The future looks bright for the first time in a very long time.
