We took Jessica to see a DAN (Defeat Autism Now) Dr yesterday. She is the only DAN Dr in all of Germany. I've read the DAN protocol, listened to DAN conference tapes etc. but this was our first trip. The DR lives in a small town about 3 1/2 hours North West of us. That's 7 hours driving for a 2 1/2 hour visit. We were all very tired by the time we made it home. I think it was worth the time! We will have a large number of biomedical tests run. Jessica may or may not need to start a special diet. We have done the Gluten Free Casein Free diet for 5 years and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet for one year. Right now she isn't on a diet. If she doesn't have a leaky gut,or a Gluten morphine, casein morphine problem we may not need to do a special diet. If we must re do a diet, it's the SCD I prefer. She will also be detoxed for heavy metal, but only after the diet issue is settled. Jessica sees the Dr again in September. Jessica is almost 16 years old. It's not realistic to believe any medical help is going to "cure" her from Autism. Still, we believe we should treat every medical issue she has. Over all it will help her feel better and preform at a higher leval. I still pray that God will heal Jessica. If God can raise the dead, He can heal autism!
