Our son was diagnosed with Autism when he was 3 years old. His major issues were regression and loss of speech, loss of some gross and fine motor skills. Our son is now 5 years and 9 months old and over the last 2 years and 9 months we have tried various medical treatments and therapies to treat his condition with mixed results.
One of the issues that we were facing with our son in January 2006 was the heightened PICA and some aggressive behaviors (pinching or biting). This behavior was limiting his ability to function in his current school — especially PICA. Our son would get a good behavior card in school maybe once in a week (he goes to school 5 days a week). It was very frustrating for us as we had tried different expensive medical and therapies to address this issue and nothing seemed to be working.
Finally we came across an article in Mothering Magazine about John and his work with autistic kids. We met John in late February 2006 and had a very good meeting. John observed our son’s hyperactivity and PICA. At the end of the meeting John gave our son a low dose of XX and asked us to give him everyday 3/4 teaspoon dissolved in 4 oz of water. After two days of giving medication to our son, we were watching a miracle happening in front of our eyes. His PICA and aggressive behavior was gone 90-95%, he was a calm and focused kid. His teachers and therapists noted an immediate change. Our son received “Good Behaviour” card for each day onwards for the last 3 weeks. He became more responsive, started showing more emotions, started playing in a more meaningful manner. He started following complex instructions which he had not done in the past. This was the fastest positive response that we have seen with a treatment for our son versus all the other medical interventions. We continue to look forward to working with John to improve our son’s condition and are very grateful for his work with our son. We are now very hopeful of our son’s recovery. Thanks John, you have given us Hope.
