I’ve started a blog list of parents who are using biomedical techniques, homeopathy or energy healing to treat their autistic child. I have done my best to try to categorize the major method of healing that the parents are using. I’ve defined biomedical treatments to include any treatment that a Defeat Autism Now! doctor or naturopathic doctor may recommend, including gluten-free, casein-free diet, supplementation, chelation, antiviral and antibacterial therapy, etc. See Generation Rescue’s website for more information about biomedical treatments, and also check out this link for parent’s ratings of biomedical interventions.
I am offering this list to help those parents who are looking for inspiration, personal stories and ideas for treatment options. I know that there are many, many more healing autism blogs out there, and will be adding to this list as I discover more.
Please let me know if you know of other blogs (your own or others) of parents who are healing their children.

Additionally, they discovered some underlying genetic mutations that were preventing Evan from correctly metabolizing certain nutrients that directly affect brain health.After treating Evan bio-medically, and with other healing practices we witnessed such a tremendous improvement in all areas of Evan’s life. Today, Evan is a happy and well-adjusted 8 year old.
