Kimberly Ruckman

My son Anthony (now 8) has had a life changing experience due to biomed.  His #1 issue was being completely mute at the age of 3.  He had been in speech therapy since he was 18 months old, but there was no progress.  His therapists were trying everything, and still my son stayed silent.  He started to develop sensory issues.  Hoarding food in his mouth, drooling, toe walking, rubbing his head on the carpet, doing repetitive play, not looking us in the eye.  Even though our pediatrician (and other specialists) told us it was nothing to worry about, my gut was telling me something was very wrong! I felt like I had no one else to turn to.  Although he was in ST & OT therapy, his therapists couldn't even recommend where I should take him.  All they knew is he wasn't improving.  During this time, when I was at my lowest as to what to do for my son, I ended up talking on the phone to an on-line friend I had met.  Her son was diagnosed w/Autism.I told her all of Anthony's symptoms, she started to tell me how her son had been helped by a DAN dr.  I had never heard of this medical field.  But so much of what she told me made sense.  So I found one on line.  Dr. Eric Sletten of Ventura CA.  A year & a half after treatment started, my son is "typical".  He no longer qualifies for OT, because his sensory issues are gone. He went from the verbal skills of a 12 month old to age approp. in 9 months time. He is now 100% therapy free!  He attends mainstream preschool and has made lots of friends.  This all would not of been possible with out Dr. Sletten.  He ran all the tests that needed to be run, got my son on the correct supplements got him on the correct diet, & released him from treatment because he's doing so well.
