Well, it’s about time that I finally finished this blog! I’ve wanted to do this for so long, but it’s taken me a while to learn all I had to learn to get it up and running!

So here’s the story in a nutshell. At certain times in our lives, certain opportunities and challenges present themselves. And we can accept them or reject them. And this is the right time in my life for me to share this blog.

I’m the mother of three wonderful children and I am truly blessed! They have all, in their own way, taught me so much in my life. I am also extremely fortunate to be a special education teacher and reading specialist. All of my students have also taught me so much over these past 14 years and I am grateful for meeting each and every one of them!

But now it’s time for me to give something back!

One of my children has autism. When Ted was diagnosed, at about 2 years old (22 years ago), I became obsessed with researching the whole topic of autism. I won’t go into the details here, but maybe, if time permits, I’ll share some of my findings in the other blog sections. Suffice it to say, that at that time, I was a stay at home mom and spent every spare moment researching this whole autism thing that was quickly overtaking our lives.

Well, when Ted was about 12 years old, I came across this article about Dr. Goldberg. He was relating autism to a neuroimmune/autoimmune dysfunction.


That’s exactly what I was finding though my extensive research. I wanted this doctor to see my son. But, as life would have it, he was in California and I live in New York. Now as an aside, I will say, that I have always been a believer in the Law of Attraction, etc. I started meditating long before The Secret became popular, so I already got it. I focused on the fact that I wanted Dr. Goldberg as my son’s autism specialist.

About a week later, I receive a flyer from one of the Autism Magazines saying that Dr. Goldberg was giving a presentation in New York! Could this be true? Well, it was true; I went to the presentation and everything he said rang true and validated all the research I had been doing!

Then another “miracle” happened!

Dr. Goldberg said that he would take a few children in New York and treat them. Well, I signed up immediately and the rest is history!

Dr. Goldberg came to New York monthly and rented a hotel room where he saw his East Coast patients. We followed his protocol, which helped get my son’s immune system stronger through diet, anti-fungal medication, anti-viral medication and all sorts of other things. My son made constant progress.

Eventually, Dr. Goldberg couldn’t make the NY trips physically, so we continued with him through monthly phone call appointments and blood work. We still continue these calls to this day.

So for the past few years, Dr. Goldberg has been asking me to get the word out. So here it is. I hope it helps you in some way. And I hope you can make some noise out there so that we can get the help for our children that they deserve!
