DAN Doctor Visit

We had an appointment with Haiden's DAN (Defeat Autism Now) doctor, Mary Lou Hulseman. I love our appointments with her because she makes me feel so good about everything we are doing. Helping Haiden recover from autism has been a rough journey especially when the majority of the medical community doesn't agree with our approach. It is so nice to go to a doctor who supports us 100% and validates my beliefs. I could spend hours talking to Dr. Hulseman about vaccines, environmental toxins, and how the CDC is so corrupt. Like I've said before, she is the only doctor I currently trust and everything she has recommended has helped Haiden.
Before each visit we have to complete a ATEC (Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist). Before we started the biomedical treatment Haiden's score was a 61. (The higher the score, the more "impaired" the individual.) Last May, after doing biomedical treatment for one year, Haiden scored a 24! Last week, Haiden's ATEC score was a 13! THIRTEEN! I wanted to jump up and down, scream, run around, celebrate! People this stuff is real! It is possible to recover and/or improve your child's physical and emotional health! This should be on the NBC nightly new, 20/20, and 60 minutes! Unfortunately it is still controversial and the majority of the public believe and trust their doctors who tell them that Autism Recover is a bunch of bull. In fact, our former GI doctor at Riley told us just that! I am so glad I trusted my instinct instead of him!
So our next steps for Haiden are to
1. start a supplement called cytozyme to help his adrenal fatigue
2. try a different type of B12 shot
3. Begin the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet)
4. check vitamin A and D, cysteine, sulfate and packed red cell test, urine OAT
5. treat lead toxicity
6. add proEFA for motor planning
We continue down our road to recovery!

Of course I couldn't add a post without pictures of my little angels.

  1. Just wanted to thank you for your blog. We are going to Dr. Hulseman's seminar on Jan. 21st and hopefully see her in Sept. I just googled her name to see what came up and your site did. It was very helpful and makes me have hope.

    My son who is 3.5 was dx with PDD-NOS this summer. He has come a long way but I want more. I'm hoping Dr. Hulseman can help.

    thanks again Jennifer If you want to contact me I'm on FB or my email is
