Other Notes: Ashleigh's mom, Monica, writes, "Ashleigh is 6 years old. She is very happy when her tummy doesn't hurt. She loves bubbles, bouncing balls, cartoons, and trampolines. When she was born she screamed and cried and this continued throughout her life. She had acid reflux when she was a baby. She developed normally and she even said a few words until she was around 14 months old. She would give us kisses say i love you, thank you, please, and daddy. One night Ashleigh started slamming her head into the wooden slab underneath the padding on her playpen. She stopped sleeping, lost eye contact, began stimming on tags and pens, became non-verbal, no longer wanted affection, and was gone.

I found with biomedical treatment and diet that she is slowly but surely recovering. I started pursuing treatment for Ashleigh last year because she regressed more so than ever before. She quit eating and drinking. Her belly was hugely distended and she screamed and put holes in her bedroom wall with her head. She even looked drugged part of the time. I took her to one doctor after another but none of them helped and all blamed her symptoms on her autism diagnosis. Frustrated and petrified because I was watching my baby starve to death, I turned to biomedical treatment. This has been the only treatment that has helped my daughter. Doctors never helped her. She once went without a bowel movement for 18 days and the doctors acted as if I was making that up. Biomedical treatment has helped my daughter tremendously. She is battling yeast overgrowth. Ashleigh's father got laid off from his job 2 months ago. We no longer have the money for treatment. She is slowly regressing without her medicine and supplements." Ashleigh's doctor is Carmen Otero in San Antonio.
