Episode Description

Each day of her life, though frequently suspended by countless hospital stays, deep comas, and months of life support after severe vaccine damage as a baby, Lorrin taught her mother, Karen. Despite any challenges, Lorrin lived a life with close friendships and the will to communicate. One year ago, after living many years longer than doctors would have imagined, Lorrin left this world physically, but her spirit is the foundation for growth and the evidence of hope. Karen's personal transformation during Lorrin's life has been the inspiration for the website Join Betsy Hicks in this unique interview of a mother who let go of fighting and began to allow each day to unfold with hope, laughter, and love. Karen and Lorrin's journey is a beautiful testament to making a choice between the barriers created by anger and blame, and the possibilities that radiate from love. Lorrin did not want to be viewed with sympathy, but rather with unconditional love. Hear how.

Many ASD patients have a history of "allergic" symptoms and food intolerance, suggesting activation of mast cells, now recognized as master regulators of the immune system. Activation of intestinal and brain mast cells by immune, infectious, stress or toxic triggers could lead to gut-blood-brain-barrier disruption, permitting brain inflammation and autism.

Lauren Underwood

Lauren Underwood is a popular conference speaker covering a "best practices" model for treating autism, combining biomedical & ABA therapies to improve optimal outcomes. Given the significant volume of research on the outcomes of treatments based on the principles of applied behavior analysis, it is clear that ABA is a necessary treatment for children with autism. Research also supports a biomedical etiology for autism. While studies are being conducted to identify exact biomedical pathways and their scientific basis, case studies based upon practical applications of this research suggest that the likelihood of successful outcomes improves when biomedical interventions are concurrently used to treat medical comorbid conditions present in individuals diagnosed with autism. Dr. Underwood is the parent of a child recovering from autism and a health educator/biomedical consultant for families of autistic children. She is a senior staff scientist for SSAI, Inc. supporting NASA. View Guest page

Kyle Van Dyke

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a specialized medical intervention in which the atmospheric pressure is increased above 1 ATA, usually by the filling of a single person chamber, multi-place chamber or a hyperbaric room with a dose specific amount of oxygen (atmospheric oxygen or enriched oxygen). During a hyperbaric “dive,” the fluids and tissues of the body receive an infusion of readily available oxygen. In fact, even cells and areas of the body with limited circulation become saturated in oxygen. Dr. Kyle Van Dyke will talk to Teri about this today, describing how this can help conditions that persons diagnosed with autism may also have. Dr. Van Dyke is a board certified family physician who became involved in autism when his son was diagnosed in 2004.
