Overview

The must-have New York Times bestseller that tells you what to do now for a child with autism, ADD, ADHD, OCD, and other disorders

For any child with challenges, early intervention is essential and parents need a plan that they can implement right away. Jenny McCarthy, one of the country's leading autism advocates, has teamed up with top autism specialist Jerry Kartzinel, M.D., to offer a prescriptive guide to the healing therapies and treatments that have turned the lives of so many children around. While autism cases have grown a whopping 6000 percent since the 1970s, the medical community is still waking up to the epidemic and parents need tools to begin healing their children and educating their doctors, instead of waiting six months to a year to get an appointment with a specialist. In this book, parents will learn about the following:

•The biomedical diet and supplement protocol

•Where to find alternative therapies and how to implement them

•A list of tests any doctor can perform

•Studies to show your doctor that will help make the case that they need to support your efforts

•Advice for preventing autism during pregnancy and the early years by looking at family history of allergies, depression, and autoimmune disorders as well as Mom's chemical exposure

Whether your child has autism, ADD, ADHD, OCD, or an autism spectrum disorder, Healing and Preventing Autism is the authoritative reference book with the tools to heal your child.

    Symptoms and comorbids can be cured...

    But...is it really necessary to go so far as to cure a mental condition? Autistics can actually be as verbal as 'normals' through things like writing and typing...they just don't like to express themselves through talking. It's hard for them.

    And autism is often the disorder du jour...a catchall for other problems that might not have a name yet, or for a whole bunch of problems all at once. What if...just what if...Ms. Mccarthy's son was misdiagnosed? People do that now. It's annoying.

    I see epilepsy in her description of what went wrong that day in Evan's crib. Which means that if it was indeed autism...it was a very severe case.

    I am one of these so-called unhealthy kids. My form of autism is milder but it's there..it's called Asperger syndrome. And if anybody met me they'd see I am completely at peace with it...and quite reluctant to call it a disorder. People have praised me for my insight...for my different outlook on things.

    People have even suspected Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison had this form of autism I have...so great idea Jenny and Jerry. Let's make EVERYONE 'normal' and destroy a great chance for genius to rise up. I have a better idea for everyone...try and love your kids for who they are. Especially...but not exclusively...if they're lucky enough to be at the higher ends of the spectrum.

    Maybe I should have put this review on one of her more popular books so more people would understand our stance. Oh well. I suppose I'll have to hope...ironically...that people want to check out what this ex-Bunny says about autism.

    Also, I dearly hope that when her son Evan is old enough to understand...he'll ask...or write if his symptoms come back...something like "Mom...you know there are people out there less lucky than I am, right? People who have tried out the stuff in your books sometimes notice it doesn't work."

    Because it's true. Ms. Mccarthy just got lucky. Some parents don't.

    Also that vaccination crap has been disproven. So...after Evan learns about vaccines at some point in his general education (because he's cured. All better. All normal. All BORING.) I hope he says something like,"Mom, why do you want people to get sick and die of preventable diseases instead of having a unique mindset that comes with treatable symptoms?"

    If this review ever reaches Ms. Mccarthy's notice, I suggest she reads a book by Temple Grandin... one of those people afflicted by this "disease".

    Maybe I should write a book... I certainly had a lot to say and I have more still, but I have less than a thousand characters left for my review.

    I thank those who read this review and learned from it. And if you read it and learned nothing...well...I can't exactly state my opinion of you here where everyone can see.
