Reading Age of Autism Part 4 – Stretching the truth by Kev Leitch Healthy Living ProfessionalHealth Maven Posted Wed 13 Oct 2010 1:43am Over the last few days, I’ve tried to show how the authors of Age of Autism have retro-fitted the symptoms of mercury poisoning to try and make them await a diagnosis of autism.

Going through these quickly, I ... Read on »
A Girlfriend's Guide To Autism: by mom26children Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Mon 10 Nov 2008 5:54pm This is the guide I would write if a good friend had a child who got the diagnosis of autism and she asked me my opinion.... 1. The first thing I would say is...I will answer your questions, but you might not like what I am going to say. 2. Sit back and take a deep breath. 3. Do not look differently at your child. You have the same chi ... Read on »
Mild hyperbaric therapy for autism - Shh!…don’t say it’s expensive by Kev Leitch Healthy Living ProfessionalHealth Maven Posted Sun 29 Mar 2009 3:40pm When I recently wrote about the new HBOT -for-autism study (Rossignol et al. 2009) 1, I took issue with unlikely claimed treatment pressures for at least one of the study locations.

Autism Bites: SIX Autistic Kids by Ginger T. Patient Expert Posted Fri 12 Sep 2008 11:30am This post should be entitled Utah Bites. These people have six children with one form of autism or another. So surely the state must have rushed to their aid as this is vastly more than any parents should have to handle on their own. Right?? Nope.
