Our son R. is 6-1/2, and we have been recovering him from autism since he was 2-1/2. In the four years we have been treating him, we have done the DAN! protocol of diet and supplements, Amy Yasko’s protocol and most recently homeopathy. We have made significant progress with all of these interventions, but about a year or so ago R. hit a plateau, even started to decline a bit. He was throwing wicked tantrums – hitting, biting, kicking and screaming for hours. He was a kindergartener who was being suspended on a regular basis. That’s when we started to see John. We went through a few different remedies, some of which helped a little, until we hit on the right one. After we found the right remedy, everything changed. R. was much calmer, his tantrums were much less frequent and severe and he was able to control himself and calm himself more easily when he did start to escalate. Now, whenever he starts to get agitated, I give him the remedy and he calms down in a matter of minutes.
Other changes happened as well. He became much more social, he started to be interested in more age-appropriate activities, his speech improved and by the end of the school year he was finishing his work in class more consistently. He does still have the occasional outburst but we give him his remedy and things cool down quickly. John has been instrumental in getting R. back on the right track. I can’t thank him enough for all he has done for us. He has always been readily available for a quick chat, and he has been genuinely concerned for R.’s well being. We would not be where we are today if we hadn’t found John and his wealth of knowledge on treating autistic kids!
