April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day

For more information check this out.

You might be asking what the previous post had to do with Autism Awareness (Look below for picture). Well the boys in the picture (not the mascot, I don't think, well I can't be sure of course) were diagnosed at age 2 and 3 with Autism and PDD-NOS (a lesser autism spectrum disorder).

At that time, the thought of a "normal" trip to a hockey game was so so far out of the picture.

We were lucky, we were able to get information that lead to the healing of their bodies.

We were lucky, the boys bodies responded to changes in diet (not everyone does).

We were lucky, we were able to find the combinations of supplements that allowed their mind to learn.

We are lucky, the limits placed on my boys are disappearing.

We are lucky, we have come out of the end of the Autism tunnel with an intact family and financial resources, only a bit beat up. (Not many families effected with Autism can say that)

It has taken alot of work by the boys, help and encouragement from friends, and endless support from people I know only from cyberspace.

Thank you to all of the researchers and doctors that are working to make the lives of all of these kids better and healthier.

For those looking for information on the medical treatment of Autism, I highly recommend Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma and Allergies by Kenneth Bock and Cameron Stauth.

Love the Hockey picture!

And I'm so very happy that you were able to find something that helped so much with your boys. And yes, not everyone is that lucky.

Good for you for posting this!

I'm so very glad to hear that your boys are some of the lucky ones.
It's too bad that we don't yet know what causes this, but I'm thankful that so many researchers are looking for a cure.
