Suggestion for Biomedical Doctors - Chicago

Postby bhawin » Thu Jun 15, 2017 2:59 pm

Hi,

We will live in the suburbs of Chicago. My daughter got diagnosed with Autism today. With nothing but therapies from the Neurologist, I'm looking to find a Biomedical doctor who can help us. Any suggestions for Bio Medical doctors around Chicago area?

Greatly appreciate your help.

Bump.

I see so many discussions about Bio Medical treatments and terms. Somebody please give me suggestions for Biomedical Doctors in Chicago.

Someone who has worked well for you..someone who hasn't..

Some info is better than no info. I see several on the GenerationRescue website. Their rates are all very high. Im trying to see if I can go off some reference rather than trial and error. Your help is much appreciated.

Unfortunately, I don't know a doctor in the Chicago area, but hopefully someone else does. 

To answer your questions posted on another thread:  "Our daughter was recently diagnosed. We are doing GAPS full diet. In terms of suppelements we are doing CLO, MultiVitamin, Fibre supplement , Calcium & Mag supplement. How you decide on the things that you try? Do you see a DAN doctor who guides you or do you take tests and supplement based on the results. Unable to get any immediate appointments with Biomedical doctors and we are very confused about what else should we be doing at this time? Can someone please guide."

Since pediatricians don't hand out an instruction sheet because supposedly there is no treatment, everyone starts different places, integrative doctors, DAN doctors, homeopaths, etc.  Daughter started with a nutritionist recommended by RDI therapist. 

This site has been recommended by others.  They have a parent-mentor program as well as a list of doctors:
https://www.tacanow.org/
https://www.tacanow.org/newly-diagnosed/
https://www.tacanow.org/about-taca/pare ... r-program/

Be careful of the bone broth in GAPS, which has both lead and glutamate.  Daughter did SCD diet, adapted for autism by eliminating casein, and skipped the intro diet.  Grandchild had severe constipation so healing her digestive system was a priority.  http://www.breakingtheviciouscycle.info/home/

Best wishes.

Thank you Grandmother.

I did read about the lead & glutamate in bone broth too. This is the part which worries me. I do something from what I read and it isn't always complete or correct information. This is where professional help is very valuable. Consulting the nutritionist seems like a good idea. I hope the nutritionist might be more willing to pursue in finding what the child lacks and supplementing it. When I asked the doctor about doing lab tests to test for deficiencies her response was why would you do the tests when she is meeting her growth charts (height /weight). Sigh :( I sure hope the nutritionist can order tests that would be covered by the insurance.

We decided to do the full GAPS instead of the intro mostly because my daughter just wouldn't drink anything soupy. So I make meat stock and use it as a base to boil the veggies. I sure hope I'm in the right direction.

Somebody, any DAN doctor references in Chicago area??

Her nutritionist was basic autism diet, didn't go further than going completely organic, eliminating gluten, dairy, corn, soy, all food additives and adding digestive enzymes, probiotics, and Epsom salt baths.  Helped "green" environment.   Didn't order tests.  SCD was newer then and Dr. Reid was unknown. Daughter researched and did everything else herself, went on to the SCD diet, etc.

Grandchild also wouldn't eat anything soupy, just finger foods, which was why the SCD intro diet was fortunately skipped.  Grandchild regressed after accidental ingestion of glutamate in sliced turkey.  Here are some links to Dr. Reid, started a non-profit after curing her daughter.

Everyone just does the best they can.  You're definitely on the right track, mainly starting now before you find a special doctor.  Always remember that you're already doing far more for her than her own doctor.

Hopefully someone knows a special doctor in Chicago.
