We knew something was wrong because our son wouldn’t engage in communication, he lost his desire to talk and he didn’t use eye contact – he was becoming isolated in his own world. But when we heard our son had autism, we were shocked. It doesn’t run in our families, we don’t use drugs or drink and we eat mostly organic. He was diagnosed with autism when he was 4. I didn’t for a minute think he was born with it, which is what our pediatrician told us. We had our son genetically tested and found out he had an MTHFR defect. Upon researching we found Dr. Potter to be an expert in this area. When we saw Dr. Potter and his staff they worked on finding the underlying problem instead of pushing some pill. His autism was treated as a symptom and not the underlying problem. Through a serious of labs, we found out that our son’s cells were very rancid after being contaminated. We suspected aluminum to be the cause and we were right. Dr. Potter put us on a program to fix the rancidity and remove the aluminum. It had been about 8 months now and our son is well on his path to a full recovery. He is no longer in his own world, he communicates, he uses eye contact, he laughs and cracks jokes. He is 6 now and he is still a little behind, but that is because we lost him for a couple of years. Our pediatrician would have never ordered the test Dr Potter did and would have only put our son on some drug he did not need. If you want to fix your underlying problem and get healthy again, your best bet is with Dr. Potter.
