Testimonials & Stories of Hope
Parents’ stories – from autism diagnosis to hope
Most of the parents we hear from began the process of helping their children by listening to the stories of other parents, noticing similarities with our own children and our own experiences and proceeding from there to explore possibilities in autism treatments and therapy options, approaches that can lead to improved health and quality of life for our children and adults on the spectrum. Following some of these treatments, sometimes as simple as a change in diet and eating habits, children’s negative behaviours can be reduced, sometimes significantly, and parents often report an overall reduction in severity of symptoms of autism.
We gain insight and direction from each other’s stories, and also hope, as well as admonitions and warnings. The parents’ stories here have been generously shared by people who have seen improvements in their children’s overall health and behaviour through the use of various nutritional and biological therapeutic approaches (sometimes also called biomedical interventions). They recount their experience of the devastation brought by a diagnosis of autism, which then acted as a catalyst for renewed vigour and determination as they set off on their quest to help their children.
Although these are not a series of miraculous cures and recoveries from autism, all of these children have made notable, sometimes remarkable progress.
Ryan’s Recovery, In His OWN Words
“Some people think we should just accept autism. And that if a child is treated, it changes who that kid is. I am still the same person I was, only now I’m happy and can enjoy life.”

Sleep Problems in Autism - One Simple Solution
Lilia’s Journey Through Autism
I did not know much about autism, or any developmental abnormalities for that matter, so up to the age of three we thought there was nothing particularly wrong with Lilia.
Jamie and His Journey
James’s Journey, so Far!
James had so many other issues that I had always been told were just part of his autism, like his gastrointestinal problems. So, what if we were to treat these alongside his ASD? Would we see the same massive improvements in his autism symptoms and behaviours…? It was a lightbulb moment!
Full Recovery from Autism
Fighting for Karl
We still have a very long road ahead of us, but having experienced such wonderful improvements I am inspired now and I have more strength than ever…
I sincerely thank some wonderful parents of autistic and recovered children for giving me my faith back and the strength to go on.
J’s Journey of Hope
Over these months, Hugo began to be more and more withdrawn and seemed to suffer from one virus after another…He had developed sensitivity to sounds and bright lights and would lie down and scream in supermarkets with his hands over his ears. He had no sense of danger and would simply run off in the park or crowded places….
Treating Archie’s Autism
Healing my Daughter
He screamed from sun up till sun down, barely slept, and threw his head off the hardest surfaces…In total despair we took S to A&E…The Doctors at the hospital refused to look at him, they told us this was autism, “this is how they are”…my husband became very agitated so they agreed to have a look in his ears, both ears were infected.
Our Son's Autism Story
Screams and hollers…meltdowns…he hasn’t progressed at all in talking–in fact he’s saying less than before…train spotting is now bordering on obsession…bit me nearly a week ago and I’ve still got the bruise…eyes fixed…spends ages and ages with his head next to the wheels of his trike… laughing manically…running up and down constantly…not sleeping…not sleeping…not sleeping…’
Joshua – his Journey so Far
Hamilton’s Recovery Journey
The driver warned me not to do it, as his daughter had for her son and he had regressed into Autism and was never the same again. This worried me hugely, and I even said the words “the worst thing that could happen after everything we have been through with Winnie would be for our sociable and happy boy to regress into Autism”.
