LESSONS LEARNED – PART ONE

Developmental Delay Is Not Okay when our kids were toddlers, everything was labeled “developmental delay”. Most times, you were told not to worry about it and your child will “grow out of it”. It was easier to trust the “professionals” than to go with our guts which were screaming at us to wake up and realize we had a serious problem. We lost valuable time meanwhile, our children’s nervous systems were shutting down and more damage was being done every day. If your instinct is telling you something is not right, take action!

No Mega Dosing of Supplements… More is Not Always Better... we were taught that because our kids have so much damage to their guts, you have to give them mega doses of certain things so that at least a tiny bit will actually be absorbed and utilized. We have come to disagree with this point of view. It makes no sense. As an example, think about when you take a supplement on an empty stomach. Doesn’t it make you nauseous or make your stomach hurt? The same is true for our kids. We believe mega doses eat away at their stomach linings and cause new imbalances. We believe the key to having our kids absorb supplements is to use liquids/capsules whenever possible and space the doses out… three smaller doses, three times a day rather than one big dose all at once. And we don’t give supplements on an empty stomach. We give them after meals.

The Wack-a-Mole Theory… we were taught that first you go after yeast, then virus/bacteria, and last heavy metals. However, we found that as we went after yeast, for example, virus and bacteria would then rear their ugly heads. Then, we’d go after virus and bacteria and suddenly the yeast would come back stronger than ever before.

We believe that yeast, virus, bacteria, and metals should be attacked all at once for true progress to occur. For example, I really attacked Annie’s yeast at one point. I fed her no sugar or carbs of any kind. I gave her large doses of probiotics and several anti candida herbs, however, all that happened was that her behavior got worse than ever because I caused her viruses to flare. If they are not fought at the same time, you simply get rid of one problem to create another.
Just to be clear, we are not contradicting our no mega dosing theory (above). We believe you can attack yeast, virus, bacteria, and metals all at once but still with a “slow and steady” approach.

A Ventography is about: 1. Encouraging and empathizing with other parents on the autism spectrum. 2. Recycling and simplifying information on the latest autism news and health and diet tips. 3. Asking thought provoking questions designed to make us rethink what we've been told about autism. 4. Helping connect the dots that show, in some cases, autism is more than a brain disorder. 5. Challenging parents to rethink what they've been told, refuse the status quo, and escape the whirlwind of confusion.
