  1. So, given that Marcia Hinds doesn’t recommend her former doctor, where do parents find a doctor who will use antifungals and antivirals? Do we have to get an a plane?

    1. Hi Joanie, Functional medicine practitioners, integrative physicians and naturopathic physicians should all have training in this. You probably don’t need to get on a plane. They are more abundant than you might think. You might want to do some searches locally and then get on the phone with them and ask about their experience with what you need.

    2. Finding a doctor is challenging and sometimes it takes more than one to treat all the complicated medical issues our children suffer from. That is why we must change things. Check out this video I made in hopes of bringing all our autism groups together. Changing the Face of Autism https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_R6Edz4m_U is something each autism group can support. We must join together to give our children a future.

  2. Deo Gratias! for Marcia Hinds for writing the book …sharing the information that parents need to combat the war about autism in their children ..can help them talk to their pediatrics or family doctors that are not establish in their communities or not aware because they chose to ignore resources that are alternatives, & so forth…

  3. Although I have never met Marcia, she is one of my dearest friends. What she has done for the autism community is invaluable. My children would not be on the road to recovery without her unwavering support and expertise. Please check out the Autism Revolution for Medical Intervention at http://www.armimovement.com and join the revolution. Alone there is little we can do about autism. Together we will be unstoppable!

  4. Hello, I agree. What a great resource! Thanks to the panel for devising such a thorough and diverse selection of topics for view. I have a question. I bought the book written by Mrs. Hinds. However, I was not clear on the methods used to increase blood flow to the brain. Were supplements employed, prescription medicines, was a physician required? If so what type of physician should we seek? Thank you and God Bless You all for your efforts to help the families affected.

    1. Please call me Marcia. Mrs. Hinds is some old lady. I’m a mom just like all of you. And we all need to help each other. I usually look for an immunologist or functional medicine doctor. The doctor that helped us most was just a pediatrician. I have lists of doctors to share that will give you a place to start. Email me at [email protected] if you want me to send them and tell me where you are located.

  5. It’s 3:00 am and I’ve just finished listening to this interview. (My only research time is between 12 and 4 am!) I am in tears. Your story profoundly touched me. I’ve been “researching” for YEARS, but haven’t ever read or heard a story like ours until hearing yours. It’s uncanny. I *so* appreciated the “realness” of the interview. (ESPECIALLY about how changing the diet wasn’t an option for you guys. I have constant guilt over the fact that I haven’t been able to change our diet. It was encouraging to hear that change can happen *in spite of* diet. Also, thank you for openly akmoledging how hard and discouraging this journey can be. I feel reenergized after hearing this talk. I’m excited to research the interventions you mentioned, and see if they might be appropriate for us. BEST lecture I’ve heard so far. THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart.

  6. I will immediately grab your rss feed as I can not find your email subscription link or enewsletter service. Do you have any? Kindly let me know so that I could subscribe. Thanks.

  7. Hi Marcia,
    A few years back you chatted with me on the phone about ASD and doctors. You pointed me to Melissa Sharma, who has an immunology degree. She recommended we might want to discuss antiviral treatment for my son with his PANDAS doctor as he had been battling several viruses for years. I just wanted to thank you. My son is on 1,000 mg of Valacyclovir daily along with some herbals for all the infections. He is 15 and has a little job! A few times a month he helps out my in laws at their restaurant and clears tables and brings out salads to customers. He’s so proud to be able to work and earn some money on his own. We are thrilled he’s able to complete tasks and manage some work, even if only for a few hours. After a lengthy battle we finally got him in a social skills program and he finally texts with some of his friends from school, outside of school. Last month he told me he has a female friend who has joined his lunch group and likes to draw him pictures at lunch. He wants to work in video game design and live in Japan! I’m just floored and amazed. A few years back a few awful professionals told me he was not high functioning because he had an aide at school , and would never keep down a job, etc. I wanted to thank you for the amazing work you are doing to make sure parents know Autism is medical and treatable. If my son didn’t have ASD he would still be who he is- he’s brilliant, creative, funny and loves video games. He just wouldn’t be so easily overwhelmed and would sleep better, be free of infections and GI issues. My son has ASD because his immune system attacks his Tubulin, which is supposed to send and transmit signals throughout his brain. So thanks to that communication throughout the brain doesn’t work like it should. He also has some antibodies that attack his dopamine receptors and he has chronic infections and gut dysbiosis- we know this because he is prone to GI issues like vomiting. I have to roll my eyes at the nonsense that these symptoms equal his core personality and must never be treated. Every ASD child deserves to have a doctor who will figure out what the heck is going on in their brain and body to cause these multiple delays and GI issues and other symptoms. Thank you again for all your hard work and please tell Ryan congratulations on making Level 3 Engineer!
