My name is Tamra and I live in Biloxi, Ms.
My son, Kale, was diagnosed at the age of two with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Integration Disorder, and ADHD tendencies. The child phyc. we took him to actually called me on the phone and said "I guess you have figured out by now that Kale has Autism". I almost fell out. I had no idea that was going to be the outcome.
So, like most of us, I cried, got angry, and then got busy seeing what hope there was to cling to. Unfortunately, in this part of the country, there is not much in the way of services for our special children. So we started early intervention and every therapy we could get him into. Yes, it did help to a point.
But the real help came one night at about 10:30 pm while I was online researching ASD. I came across Generation Rescue. Let me just say I was skeptical, but desperate. Kale had come to a stand still. He was having serious problems in school and could barely sit to focus. The same doctor that told me Kale had ASD would not give us an actual diagnosis on paper, he said Kale was too young to label. So we had to go to a children’s hospital in Louisiana to get our diagnosis so that we could receive therapy through the state. The doctor that wouldn't give us the diagnosis was happy to prescribe Kale all kind of drugs. At different times he was on Focalin, Adderall, and several other drugs to help him focus. What we had was a zombie that had no appetite and couldn't sleep. He would bang his head and wrestle with himself to fall asleep and many times it required one of us to lay on him so that he could calm down to sleep.
When I told the doctor that Kale looked sick and hadn't been eating for several months as well as sleeping, his response was to give Kale sleeping pills. I had had enough, no more drugs!! We have not seen him since.
So, my next move was to follow the steps lined up on generation rescue. My husband thought I was crazy, but no one was helping us! First I started the GF/CF diet. The teacher in Kale's SPED class told me that I was wasting my time and that many of the other children had tried that diet and it made no difference. I sat in my car and cried. I had to try it.
Let’s just say that one month later that same teacher met me at the car and asked me what I was doing with Kale. He was sitting in circle time and actually listening to her. Not to mention he was finally eating. The dark circles had disappeared from under his eyes and he was beginning to look healthy. He eventually started to verbalize more and the therapists were getting more from him as well. All of this from a diet? I was hooked.
Next was to find a rescue angle for support and a DAN! doctor for treatment. My rescue angle is a beautiful person and since then we have been able to help each other several times. The DAN! doctor I used was Dr. Julie Buckley in Ponte Verda Florida. We have one a lot closer but something drew me to her (it was God of course) and I really felt a connection to her as she had recovered her own child.
My husband decided that the less he knew about all this the better off he was, but he did help when I asked for it. So we went on a 10 hour car ride to the Dan! doctor. For the first time ever I was told positive thing were in our future. She said she wanted to spend her retirement going to all the weddings and graduations of her patients. I LOVE THIS LADY. Finally I had hope.
So, we started on a ton of supplements to help replace the nutrients that Kale's body was lacking. We started to chelate to get out the heavy metals that he tested positive for. And we scheduled a rigorous two months of HBOT in Florida over the summer. Let me just add that after the first HBOT treatment, Kale asked me to pull over so he could go to the bathroom!!!! From there he was potty trained!! Finally at the age of four he did it.
This is just our condensed story, there is much more to it. But without generation rescue Kale would not be where he is today. These treatments work. Yes, some of them are costly, but it is doable. We do not make a lot of money, but God has made sure to give us what we need to make Kale better.
Do not take a regular pediatricians word that there isn't much you can do for your child. There are tons of things that can and do help our kids. Each child is different, therefore, the treatment for each child may be a little different, but they can be recovered.
It takes time and hard work on your part as the parent, but it is so worth it. I have told Kale I loved him twenty times a day since the day he was born. But I will never for get the day he looked me straight in the eyes and said "I love you too mommy". It still gives me chills. Both of my kids’ births were incredibly special days in my life, but that day I have to say was the best.
Kale has a short recovery video on You Tube. It’s just a little piece of proof. Good luck and don't give up! This and other stories of recovery can be found on the TESTIMONIALS page at GenerationRescue.
