Praise For The ADHD and Autism Nutritional Supplement Handbook: The Cutting-Edge Biomedical Approach to Treating the Underlying Deficiencies and Symptoms of ADHD and Autism

 “Lost in the landscape of ASD, PDD, ADHD and a jungle of other labels for children’s problems? The best path favors not labels but logical questions shared by practitioner and parent. Does this child have a special unmet need to get and/or avoid something which, if addressed, will favor Nature’s buoyant impulse toward healing? This book guides you among the options and up the steps of that path with clarity, precision, wisdom and wit.”  Sidney M. Baker, M.D., F.A.A.P., Founder and CVO of Autism360.org Author of Detoxification and Healing, co-author of Autism: Effective Biomedical Treatments
