Evan was diagnosed with a pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), attention deficit disorder, anxiety, motor and speech apraxia, and a sensory processing disorder. Many doctors recommended medication for Evan, to cover up his symptoms, but his mother opted to treat the underlying causes. And now Evan is symptom and diagnosis-free.  

 

Trips to the doctors

Evan began retreating into his own silent world, where he became anxious, and full of rage.  He had global developmental delays, with difficulty speaking, obsessions and compulsions, social, physical and academic difficulties. He developed blue circles under his eyes, and had difficulty sleeping.  His mother took him to doctors, and enrolled him in intensive therapies.  She knew medication would be introduced, but was concerned about the side effects.

Through extensive research Evan's mother discovered that many children are out of balance biochemically and plagued by nutritional deficiencies.  The intestinal system becomes inflamed due to genetic mutations and food intolerances, which results in inflammation and prevents proper metabolic and brain functioning. So Evan's mother began to focus on treating these imbalances through nutrition and integrative therapies.

Evan begins to get better through gut healing

With the help of a naturopath and other supportive doctors Evan's gut began to heal, and he was able to absorb nutrients properly.  His family added in Eastern medicine treatments such as acupuncture, and saw improvement in all areas of development.

Evan healed from his PDD, ADHD, sensory issues and is now a healthy boy!

He is successful in school, basketball, and swim class.  He is sociable, and his communication abilities have improved.  He has friends, and engages easily with family.  He is imaginative and independent, and expresses his needs, likes, and dislikes.  He has a strong personality, with a dry sense of humor.  He made up for previous developmental delays.  The changes are profound.
