Below is the start of an article from The Delaware County times in Pennsylvania. Take note how an allopathic doctor, a surgeon, has helped recover his children with autism. Remember, surgeons FIX THE BODY - that's their mindset, unlike the traditional docs who "treat" autism, who at best, tinker with the unknown in a crap shoot of meds and behavioral services. It's natural that a surgeon would decide to "fix" his children's autism. It's a terrific article, and we should thank Patti Mengers for running it. When do you think it will be in the NYT or Philadelphia Inquirer? Click into the full article to see video HERE.

Dr. Patrick Elliott will never forget the day one of his 6-year-old twin sons delivered a self-diagnosis to him.
“I don’t have autism anymore,” the boy announced to his father.
It was a far cry from three years earlier when both twins were diagnosed with the neurobiological affliction of unknown origin. Between the ages of 18 months and 24 months, they went from being playful and happy to ceasing eye contact with others. They had lost any language they had acquired.
“They were basically disengaged,” said Elliott, a 47-year-old general and trauma surgeon at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland.
Through a combination of conventional and alternative therapies, one of his twins improved so much he was able to join his peers in the mainstream by the time he entered first grade at his local public school where he is now a fourth grader. He no longer requires therapy. At his parents’ request, his name is being withheld from this story.
His twin brother, Bradley, is in fourth grade at a private special education school in Chester County, where he reads and writes at his grade level. He still receives biomedical intervention.
“He still has issues with anxiety and (obsessive-compulsive disorder),” Elliott said, “but he has dramatically improved and we hope he’ll be mainstreamed some day,”
Born in April 2001, the twins initially developed normally as their two older brothers had at their home in Middletown. Their mother, Marie, was the first to notice changes in the twins, Elliott said.
The twin who no longer requires therapy “had horrible, aggressive behaviors, self-injurious behavior, head-banging and echolalia where he would repeat what everybody said,” Elliott said. “That’s better than no language, but it was clearly a problem.” Continued...
