Other Notes: Dalton's mom, Wendy, writes, "My son was diagnosed with Autism/PDD when he was 2. We immediately started therapies, homeopathic treatments and the gluten-free casein-free (GFCF) diet. It did help a lot with his eye contact and his gastro problems. He finally said his first word at 4 1/2. He is doing a lot better, but, when we stopped with the homeopathic treatments and GFCF diet, he started regressing. We couldn't afford it any longer. Now he is going back to doing some of the things we got out of him with these treatments. It breaks my heart to see him go back. I really need help to get him back to where he was. I have heard about DAN! lately and decided I wanted to try this on my son. This loan would give us the tools to find out exactly how to treat him and continue the regimen."
Special Note: Wendy learned about Lend4Health from the HollyRod Foundation website, after seeing Holly Robinson Peete on the TV show The Doctors.
