Autism recovered?

Medical experts say it's not possible to recover autism. We have living proof in the form of three children, that it IS possible. In my blog you will find recovery stories, along with information regarding health that I have learned over the years. And sometimes just snippets of life to give hope that yes, life can be normal after the hard work is done.

Sit back, enjoy, and be hopeful! RECOVERY HAPPENS!

Ice cream sundae... allergy style

Saturday is coconut ice cream day around our house. Because it has agave nectar (which I don't love), it's a once a week treat.

Today a lady at the chiropractors office told the kids what an ice cream sundae is. They were in awe listening. lol They obviously have never had one but we recently trialed bananas and they were ok with them. Daddy trialed them as well since he had an anapylactic allergy to them and thanks to Bioveda, he is no longer allergic! YAY! So tomorrow we will make our own unique ice cream sundae. The kids are so excited! :)

The ice cream will be coconut ice cream of course... no dairy. I'm going to make some strawberry ice cream just using the vanilla ice cream & blending it up with strawberries. I did something like that one year for Grace's birthday and it was a hit and since we're just looking for pink ice cream, we don't care what flavor it is! lol Daddyman will get some maraschino cherries for himself but we will not have those as they contain high fructose corn syrup... ick! We considered getting real cherries but I'm not willing to travel an hour to Whole Foods just for a couple of cherries. HA! Daddy will also get hot fudge and I think I will try to make some chocolate syrup for the kids... not sure out of what exactly. I have some raw chocolate... maybe some chocolate, xylitol and a little coconut oil? Hmmm that might work although the sweetness quotient of that makes me gag to think of.. No whipped cream of course, although I think Daddy might get some for himself but he didn't mention it so maybe he'll forget it's supposed to be on there. ;) I can't remember if that's all that makes up a sundae but that's all we're doing anyway. I am excited for them to try it! I'll take a picture if I remember b/c it's gonna be awesome!!! :D

Now don't you all feel like ice cream? :D


  1. Weeeellll I forgot to take a picture. And it was a banana split anyway. lol I spent the entire time they were eating, locked in the bathroom crying. (They did not know that) But I was assured they were delicious and wonderful so that's what matters. :)

  2. Hi, my name is Jennifer. I can be reduced to tears quickly by "normal" (or almost normal) things as my eldest is recovered from autism and my middle child from failure to thrive. Keep up the great work! I am looking for moms of recovered children, because the recovery can be just as exhaustive at times. I didn't expect that.

  3. Hi Jennifer, it's great to "meet" you! Yes it is weird how exhausting recovery can be. I'm so glad I never had to go through this completely alone. If you ever want to chat, my email is Congrats on doing the hard things with your children and seeing recovery!!
