I so agree with your article. When I first started biomeds I used to actually go to the anti-biomed blogs and defend Jenny. I would fight with these people and defend biomeds. It made my blood boil and still does. But now I just don't have the energy to fight. All I can do is worry about my kid and stick with the parents who I'm on the same page with. I think I am the only mother in my city doing biomeds. I have yet to meet another. I know they all think I'm some kind of witch or something, mixing up my brews for Ruby. But what ever! I love being a witch!
Thank you! There are about five of us biomed moms where I live. LOL about the brew. I SO hear you! :)

I don't understand the divide either. Unfortunately, when we waste time fighting with each other over causes and cures we get further away from discovering both.That being said, I, of course, know what triggered it in my children and know what helps alleviate symptoms.I'll never understand the ND position that by treating my son's gastrointestinal issues, which resulted in the lessening of his "autistic" behaviors, can be anything but good.
What is people's problem with HBOT? It is actually being studied right now for autism treatment and has some promising results. It is also relatively low-risk.I don't see how sitting in an air-filled chamber will convey to a child that his mother is disappointed in him. Does taking ADHD medication for symptoms say to the child "you are a disappointment"? Both are interventions to hopefully improve negative symptoms and help the child function. One of the mothers on my blogroll has actually gotten insurance to cover HBOT for her son since she is seeing results.
I loved your article. You are so courageous and have such an amazing spirit. Your son is so lucky to have you for his mama. Love,Kristen
Thank you Kristen! :)
