I know I can do more, 
but not sure what.

You've made some progress with your child's recovery, have tried a few successful things – maybe the gluten-free, dairy-free diet, maybe added some supplements and therapies like ABA, OT, ST. Perhaps you have seen a specialist or two (or many!).

But you know there is more you can be doing to help your child, but aren't sure what.

You're in the right place! I can promise we've got steps that can take your child further, perhaps to complete recovery.

What am I missing?

What else can help my child?

Your recovery journey is individual. What helps one child, may not help another, or may even harm. Experience has taught me that underlying the autism behaviors are pretty universal dysfunctional body processes, just different dysfunction for different kids.

When certain steps are taken, the recovery progresses and most children can fully recover or make a lot of progress towards recovery.


Autism Recovery Journey In 4 Stages

Please download “The Autism Recovery Journey – in 4 Stages” document so you can see if you've covered all the bases

Detoxification and Drainage

Your child must be eliminating the built up toxins in their system – and most kids on the spectrum are poor at doing this. Toxins like heavy metals, plastics, fire retardants, herbicides/pesticides, auto exhaust and microbial toxins (both from inside and outside the body) must find their way out of the cells, the brain, other organs and tissues.

In order for this to happen, their systems of elimination must be working well!

What many doctors don't address – even autism recovery specialists – is drainage, or opening the routes for toxins that leave the body. This means paying attention to what happens with cellular waste, the lymphatic system, the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, lungs, spleen and skin. Has your child had these functions assessed?

Work With Luminara - Body Biomap Assessment and Heath Protocol

autism recovery, ahdh, sensory processing disorder

Through various assessments, I create an internal “Biomap” of the body, looking at what is dysfunctional and what can be improved (Hint: it all can improve!). 

You receive an application of NeuroModulation Technique, a full report and individualized healing protocol, and 15-minute follow up to clarify findings and protocol.

Assessments include drainage systems, cellular detoxification efficiency,  key biochemical functions including of methylation and mitochondrial function,  chronic infection load, autoimmune behavior, toxin load including metals.

Get more detail about the Body Biomap Assessment.

Next Steps

Assess gut function, address gut healing, direct immune and nervous system healing

This process includes diet changes, adding certain supplements, like probiotics, digestive enzymes, Ion Biome Gut Healing (formerly Restore), or amino acids. There are so many things one can look at regarding the digestive system, including liver and gall bladder function, leaky gut, constipation/diarrhea, gut infections, digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

While working on the gut, it's important to correct immune system dysfunction, which leads to so much gut and neuroinflammation (a hallmark of autism).

Lastly, working on restructuring the brain will help with under-developed areas, healing chronically inflamed areas, and integrating primitive reflexes so higher functions of the brain can fully develop. This can be accomplished through NeuroModulation Technique (NMT), like neurofeedback, or retraining of the brain.

Individual Healing Sessions

Every child with autism is unique. What works to heal one child, may not affect your child, or may hurt another. That’s why working one-on-one with an experienced professional will get your child exactly what he or she needs, whether it's a certain nutritional supplement, the best diet for him, a movement or a specific healing instruction for the brain.

With NMT, we can assess dysfunction, create awareness of that dysfunction, and correct it. We ask new clients to begin with a Next Steps Discovery Consult prior to requesting NMT.
