Ok so I've been sitting here with this organizer in my hands pondering what to do with it since I already have 3.....yea 3. 

Anywho, So here it catalog and in practice at my house:

So I decided instead of selling it, I would give it away since I am seeing how much it is helping in our own home.  Below is the "Rafflecopter" box so you can enter.  I was going to do numbers but with that many fans im scared I will screw up Royally.

If you have any questions feel free to email me on The Neurotypical Mom or

I am not a Doctor.....

Quick....To answer questions.  I was advised by a Doctor to give the children Melatonin, over a year ago for Frankie actually.  I put it off for a year because I didn't want to mess with his body.

That being said, after the last few months, where my son has been exhausted, struggling to get up in the morning, go to bed at night, looking like hes 50 because of the bags under his eyes, his behaviors are insanely over the top due to being overtired, I had to try it. 

Called school today, they said he is having a great day.  He woke up on his own this morning with his sister and they played before school and had breakfast with no tears.

Will Melatonin be forever, hopefully not, but until my kids are on a regular sleep cycle again, this is how it will go.
IF you think your child might benefit from using Melatonin PLEASE speak to a doctor first to get correct dosages etc.  Try to stay away from Dr. Google.  I have read so many conflicting thing on the Internet, remember just because its on the Internet doesn't mean its true.  
 I will keep you updated on how things are going, if the more regulated sleep makes for happier kids.  I know my daughter is less moody at least!

If your New Here....

I am a Christian wife and mother of three. I work at home selling Organizing solutions....while I am the least organized woman on earth.

My oldest was diagnosed with Autism at 2.5.  He was nonverbal and jumpy

I tried ton of supplements, diets, medicines, put my kid through tests and honestly....he only "recovered" with Intense schooling, therapy, hope and love

My son has Celiacs, and all my kids have dairy issues....because of that we are GFCF....I didnt see any difference in anyones behavior....except everyones poop was back to normal.

I don't let my kids have red dye because it makes them Bonkers

I am sarcastic and like to kid alot.  Please don't take me to seriously.

At the same time, I take tons of crap personally. 

I beat myself up for over a year blaming myself for my sons issues and my inability to fix him.  It wasn't until i let that go and loved him for ho he was....that he was "fixed"

I'm a normal mom, I get frazzled, i drink wine and I like it. 

Try not to get offended....its all fun here

I cured my sons Autism with Granola Bars and Apple Juice from China

I might lose fans

I started many a blog with that warning....but its come to the point where I considered writing this anonymously.  Then i thought, stop being a coward and just come out with it.

My son was diagnosed with Autism and 2 months later I started a blog.  In those months I was bombarded with thoughts, ideas, "cures" and tons of opinions.  I've said it before, I was never depressed about it, I knew something happened with vaccines (my son, not ALL Autism), I knew in my mind he would be ok, we would be ok.

Then I saw it......I saw these moms talking about "recovery".  So there I fell, into the recovery circle.   We started therapy and I started "recovery".  I ran to the local health food store ad plopped down close to $300 in supplements.  I put my son through Blood tests, MRI's, EEG, Endoscopy's, nutrition consultations, Prescription meds....I did it all to help him, thats what I believed. 

Every morning I had him swallowing liquids and gummies and sending him to school.  Everyday I sat here and read about crazy things people were trying....CAMEL Milk....yes Camel milk to recover the Autism.

Here I am feeling like Shit because I cant afford Camel milk....shit I cant afford all these damn supplements to save my kids life.  After all those test, I found out my kid has celiacs and  MTFR gene I suppose the tests were good but I NEVER found that crazy crap in his blood everyone told me I would.  I spread myself thin and almost burnt myself out to recover this kid....and then I snapped.  It was around the same time I got pregnant with the little guy and took a hiatus from Blogging.

I BURNT OUT.  I burnt out because there are people in this world that are holier then thou and have "recovered" their children.  They never feed their kids foods with preservatives, they give them special meds, they give them special baths, they go to special doctors and they talk down to everyone who doesn't go bankrupt trying to save their kid.

NOW here is the kicker........

My son.....seems...."recovered"

It was hard for me to come back to blogging...because he is doing so Damn well.  You know what I did?  Nothing.  I fed him GF Granola bars and Juice.  He ate chicken nuggets and cereal.  He watched TV and ate handfuls of candy. He only takes a multivitamin and he will vomit up fish oil.

Guess what, he woke up 6 months ago, looking pretty damn typical.

So my question is.....was it just time and therapy. I Thank God every day I did not bankrupt us.  When I say I do not have one cent left to try new "therapies" I mean it.  There is no way.....

And here he is....talking up a storm...looking at inclusion Kindergarten with hopes of mainstream soon after that and he never had a drop of camel milk, or was thrown in a hyperbaric chamber, never chelated, never on a strict diet, never given supplements around the clock.......just therapy, time and hope.

That's all I got.  I rambled I know, I know.  I know some of you feel like read peoples status updates on facebook when it come to Autism and you feel inferior, I know I did (some days I still do).  Why didn't I do more, why don't I do more, why am I not a "warrior".  Because I'm not a warrior, I'm a mom, and at the end of the day I'm a good one.

At the end of the day...I RECOVERED MY SON.....on Granola Bars and Apple Juice made in China :D
