Our daughter has been recovered completely. She has the occasional bad moment, and requires the occasional tune-up, and considering from where she has come, it only makes sense. Her other non-spectrum friends require their own tune-ups for what might ail them, and have the occasional bad moment as well!

These are our top 6 interventions:

1. Good specialist who "gets" it and didn't dismiss our concerns (we work with Dr. K. Bock). Eliminated the pediatrician with the look of fear in his/her eyes if questioned or challenged.

2. Supplement therapy, especially Omega 3 and zinc

3. Antibiotic therapy to kick out embedded strep infection

4. Clean, whole foods diet - almost Paleo or Feingold in fashion (lean proteins, fruits and veggies, GF/CF/Egg-free, dye-free)

5. Methylated B12 shots - turned her connection to the world to "on" position

6. ILS Therapy headphones - turned her ears "on" and all but eliminated auditory defensiveness. She is needing a tune up, so we are doing a fresh pass. (We bought a used set from another parent)

and to add a number 7: prism glasses and vision therapy - reduced uncertainty about her surroundings since she was able to visually process what was going on

Love all of you, for you understand. Wishing you deep and true levels of success with your beautiful children.

At Mosswoodconnections.com we recommend:
Floortime Play Therapy with an emphasis on social skills
GF/CF diet
Occupational Therapy with an emphasis on sensory integration
Speech Therapy
Biomedical analysis
More social skills (look into RDI and Michelle Garcia Winner)

There are so many other interventions but those are our top 6

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I thought I would share what my top 6 interventions that we used over 12 years ago for my daughter Emily who is now 17.

1. mega vitamins, mainly B6, magnesium, calcium zinc and a fish oil taken separately - this was compounded for her
2. Probiotics
3. GF/CF diet and eliminating all allergens
4. Gifted Speech Therapist and an amazing Occupation Therapist
5. Having two siblings, 1 a year younger and 1 a year older that played with/around her
6. One-on-one worker that implemented recommendations from the above therapists using an ABA like approach -can't say that ABA was very beneficial for her sisters tho :(

She came out of her opiated stupor about 4 weeks after beginning the vitamin therapy/GFCF diet.

For us what led to Recovery are:

1. The chlorine dioxide (CD/MMS) protocol.
2. The accompanying Kalcker parasite protocol.

How are all the kids doing?

For us:
1) diet, as soon as she was off milk she really became more switched on! Little things like listening to our conversations whilst she's playing and commenting.

2) ABA- great therapists and consultant was crucial, as we were running a programme that wasn't suitable to my daughter.

3) vitamins? I don't know what's working at this point but she is improving.

4) digestive enzymes and probiotics- although we're early in the process so I need to give it time to see the benefits.

Next on our list is some form of chelation as she has high levels of arsenj in her system.
MB12 injections.

My son has been on "Feast without Yeast" diet and Nystatin for 2 months now and he is almost free of all autistic symptoms.

Here is a topic from another mom explaining why this diet is BETTER than GFCFSF and SCD diet. Apparently, SCD diet includes foods full of mold and toxins which cause repetitiveness, slow brain function, and promote yeast overgrowth.

Just a quick quote from her post: "My son is, with this diet and Nystatin, finally what I would consider “fixed!” By fixed I mean he is able to sit at a table and attend to four hours of school without tuning out. He can write a full page of cursive without quitting. His gut is fixed. The night sweats are gone—this was a biggie, and our doctor thought it was metals. I now think it was yeast or mold. We are still getting big die-off symptoms, and the “yeast smell” many days, so there’s still lots in there, but each day his behavior is better and better. "

viewtopic.php?p=121287


I absolutely agree her post.
From my own experience....

My son was very autistic and had no speech when he was 2 years old. He was extremely repetitive and used to get stuck on doing the same thing over and over.

He got rid of all autistic symptoms and repetitiveness with "Feast without Yeast" diet and Nystatin.

He is now 2 years and 6 months old, and he is almost free of any autistic symptoms. He is saying 4-5 word sentences, his eye contact is excellent. He follows my directions, he is curious about everything. Some days he is a bit repetitive (he is not completely free of yeast yet). But most days he is just fine, he is progressing, learning, and just being a happy boy.

When my son started a GFDFSF diet, he was doing fine. His eye contact got better and he was generally more with us. However, he had some bad days and some good days. Something was setting him off.

We tried multivitamins, probiotics and GFDFSF diet. It helps somehow, but doesn't treat autistic symptoms completely.
With "Feast without Yeast" diet and Nystatin, we had immediate and noticeable results. I believe that with this diet my son will be free of all autistic symptoms within a year or so.


Author of this diet, Dr. Bruce Semon has an autistic son. He treated his son and since then many other kids. He says that his diet and treatment worked for every autistic kid he's ever treated.

My son had an OAT Urine test, Stool test and Hair test for heavy metals from the Great Plains Laboratory.
Urine test showed high levels of waste product of Candida yeast overgrowth.
Stool test didn't show Candida yeast , and in most cases stool test doesn't detect yeast as it doesn't survive in large intestinal.
Hair test for heavy metals didn't show heavy metals.


"Feast without Yeast" diet is not as difficult or strict as SCD diet. However, this is a long-term treatment. Most kids have to stay on this diet for a few years. It works so well for my son and I believe this should help other kids as much as it helped my son.

A few notes on the diet:

1) Diet works only in combination with Nystatin. Diet doesn't work on it's own.
1/3 of success is due to the diet and 2/3 of success is due to Nystatin.
2) All multivitamins and especially vitamin B have to be discontinued. They interract with Nystatin and the medicine doesn't work if vitamins are taken during the treatment. Vitamin B6 and B12 are made from yeast (or made with the help of yeast), so you're pouring gasoline on the fire when you take high-dose Bs (like B6 or B12) orally.
3) You need to read the book "Feast without Yeast" to implement the diet. 

A few notes on Nystatin:

1) We got Nystatin prescription from our regular pediatrician. We showed him OAT Urine test results and the book "Feast without Yeast". He gave us the prescription and 3 refills without any problems. We came back for another prescription with my son and showed him the progress my son is making with Nystatin. He was surprised by his progress, and gave us a second prescription with 2 refills.

2) You have to make sure your child gets a full dose of Nystatin every day. The drug tastes very bad. I have to use a syringe to spray this drug to my son's mouth. He doesn't like it, so, I give him stickers every time he takes Nystatin and he forgets about the "aftertaste" right away.

This is the only way to give Nystatin to your child. Giving it with water or with other vitamins won't work. Your child will probably refuse to take it as it's very bitter. But it helps to get rid of all autistic symptoms, so it's worth it.


Here is the website of this doctor:

http://nutritioninstitute.com/

This is a short explanation and dosage of Nystatin:
http://www.greatplainslaboratory.com/bo ... sect2.html


Please don't start any chelation without proper tests. It's dangerous and it doesn't help get rid of autistic symptoms completely. Try to change your child diet according to this article by Dr. Bruce Semon:
http://www.greatplainslaboratory.com/bo ... sect2.html

If you see positive changes on Stage 4 of "Feast without Yeast" diet, then go ahead and find the way to get prescription for Nystatin.

Before starting any chelation, get your child tested for heavy metals (Hair test for heavy metals). Most likely, your child doesn't have any heavy metals and he just needs a different diet and a proper treatment for yeast and leaky gut.


Let me know if you need any additional info on the diet. I will be happy to help.
