This sounds like a great book. Sometimes as parents we get so overwhelmed. I think that it is a great idea to break it down.


Would definitely like to gain any insights from this book as she appears to be very well qualified and I am ever-searching for answers to this puzzle.

I would love to win a copy- I've been looking for a new autism book to motivate me and find new ideas for healing.


This would be a great addition to our go to references for my so .


I have an adult son with autism that no longer self-abuses because of dietary intervention. He was severely self-abusive and separating that autism bully from my son required outsmarting him in the area of diet but I want even more freedom for Aaron so thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of this book.

Would love to win. In our 14 th year of recovery. Always looking to get more ideas to restore health to my son and keep his unvaccinated big little brother healthy.

Lisa Sullivan

Our family could use such a valuable resource as this. I have 3 boys. Oldest has Aspergers, middle son has ASD, SPD, regressive speech delay, PANDAS, and dysbiosis, the baby (unvaccinated) has food allergies, ADHD, eating issues, and fine motor delays. My husband recently was approved for disability. I could definitely put this information to good use.


Would live a copy. My miss 4 has asd and love trying to learn as much as I can.

Lisa Smith

I am currently treating my 6-year-old son's autism and I would love to learn more about the information in this book!! I have listened to Patricia being interviewed on a couple of webinars in the last couple of years and she seems so knowledgeable!!


Hoping to make it to Patty's talk in NYC in September for the NAA.
Would love a copy of this book! Sounds like a good read!


Enter me! Looks great!


I love to read anything I can get my hand on about autism. Unfortunately, I don't have the money to buy books new, and used bookstores rarely have books about autism. When they do, they're outdated. I feel like Johnny 5 from "Short-Circuit," "Input! More input!"

Kristina Brown

This looks like an awesome read, I am always looking for ways to outsmart Autism with my twins. Hope to win a copy!

Lisa A.

Wow, looks like a lot of good ideas. I'd love to read it!
