How I’m “Healing Oliver”

My blog is titled Healing Oliver. The word healing has many synonyms, but the one that I want to focus on is “improving”. When I say that I am hoping to heal Oliver, I am not saying that I feel autism is something that is in need of a cure, per say. There are countless stories from families around the globe that have shown that intensive therapies, diet change,  nutritional supplementation, and other measures have vastly improved their child’s quality of life. My goal is to put all of my energy into giving Oliver the best chance possible for a happy and healthy future. I feel that everything that we embark on is worthwhile, whether or not they work for us the way they have worked for some of the families, because we would have, at the very least, tried. I encourage every parent of a child with autism to explore other parents’ stories to see what has and hasn’t helped, for inspiration. I find myself experiencing abundant amounts of inspiration after hearing that there is hope. However Oliver’s story unfolds, I believe that we will see improvement, or in other words– witness healing.

Listed below are the ways that I’m “Healing Oliver”. I’m utilizing the therapies that my insurance company and local school district will cover, as well as undergoing a biomedical approach. I have worked with Oliver’s naturopathic pediatrician to create his current and future supplement plan. I will update this page as I add or remove supplements, therapies, and other treatments.

  1. My youngest son (not autistic) has eczema and i make a simple brown sugar and coconut oil scrb, and use it after he washes in the shower, rinse, and pat dry. It helps his clear up really well and keeps his skin soft without irritating his skin and keeps his skin soft and moisturized, but not greasy.
