After years of treating patients and analyzing scientific data, prominent Harvard Medical School researcher and clinician Dr. Martha Herbert offers a revolutionary new view of autism. Autism is not hardwired into a child's genes and destined to remain fixed forever, as parents are often told. Instead, Dr. Herbert approaches autism as a collection of challenges, many of which can be tackled in a deliberate and methodical way. Her recommendations aim to provide optimal nutrition, reduce toxic exposures, shore up the immune system, reduce stress, and open the door to learning and creativity—all by understanding and truly meeting your child's needs.
"Changing the Course of Autism" brings readers up to date on autism as a whole body disorder. It reinforces that autism is treatable and makes reference to reputable research. It is well organized and well referenced. This book needs to reach every primary care physician and pediatrician, so our kids have the best chance to be the best they can be. I encourage parents to read this book and share it with their Doctors.
