Default very informative lecture...

Has anyone been to a lecture by John and his wife Betsy Hicks. They are the parents of an autistic child. Betsy is the mother and is a nutritionist and John a pediatrician that met her son at age 8. they speak on everything from vaccinations to the gluten free diet thing, heavy metals, calcium, all kinds of testing, etc... This was my 1rst seminar, (so some of the stuff went over my head) me and my husband have attended and walked away with so much info. I was actually crying on the way home cuz I felt a little to overwhelmed. but today w/ things a bit more in percpetive, I feel it was a wonderful lecture nad cant wait for them to come back! You can ask them anything! They have a web site and are based out of Wisconsin (?).

I have not heard of him. Less than two weeks ago, we took Tom to a DAN! doctor for testing in all of those things you mentioned. (At some point, I'm going to sit down and write a separate thread on our appointment.) Yesterday, I took him to actually get the blood drawn (all things considered, it went VERY well). I'm kind of excited thinking about getting the results.

Anyway, our doctor recommended reading "Children With Starving Brains" by Jacquelyn McCandless before the appointment. I got it from our library, but I'm planning on actually buying it. She talks about all of the "current" treatments of what you probably heard yesterday. If you haven't already read it, I recommend it.

Anyway, I'm hoping this will all help Tom. Need to go for now.
