I understand how parents hesitate about trying our something new like Chlorine Dioxide (CD) for their kids with autism. That’s fine. It’s ok to wait the protocol, which is good, to get better.
I’m just happy that those that dare, tell me that they too see their kids getting better…
After my friend tried CD and did their first CD Parasite Protocol, this is what she said about her child:
“less tantrums and crying…almost no problem with sleeping… and when i say kiss mommy he kissed me….”
I was out all morning with Ian, at his classmate’s birthday party.
In the afternoon, Nathan invited me, “Do you want to go to the son-rise room?” ….that’s his way of asking, “Mama, play with me.”
At the son-rise room, Nathan picked his activities: read his favorite book, spin on swivel chair then mess with the shaving cream!
The reason why son-rise kids seem to progress so fast is not because their son-rise facilitators taught them new skills. It’s because their facilitators make their environment more relaxing, fun and exciting. Thus, it makes it easy for son-rise kids “come out” and show us what they have known all along.
As they flipped through the pages of this book, Nathan asked his volunteer to find a specific story or find a specific page. He also sang a song relevant to the story he was looking at. In so many ways, Nathan showed us that he can really comprehend this 6-in-1 story book!
Who would have thought we would get this far, this soon?
A year and a half ago, when we first started with our son-rise program, he had no intentional speech. All Nathan would do is get a book, flip the pages near his lips and feel the breeze it made. His son-rise volunteers would sit across him and join him. They would do this for hours, days and months. It was our way to connecting with Nathan, speaking his language first before asking him to speak our language. During those first few months, Nathan emerged with strong eye-contact, which paved way for more social skills like this.
We have a long way to go, but we’re certainly on the right path.
Loving our son-rise journey!
I have always been excited about telling people the good things that The Son-Rise Program has brought for my son with autism, and most of all for me, a parent who used to be so worried about my child’s future.
Our son-rise journey has made life with autism a blessing worth sharing.

After church there was a man with severe cerebral palsy. His speech was also affected by his CP, so it took me some time to decode that he wanted me to help him cross the road. That entailed holding his hand so that he can balance while stepping on and off the pavement, holding up my hand to ensure cars would stop and we could cross at his comfortable but slow pace.
As I helped him I felt what a blessing that this man picked me to help him. My son, Nathan also has a milder form of cerebral palsy and thus has difficulty walking and balancing.
It was amazing to see someone take all his might (evidently each step he took needed so much effort), face the world independently, have courage to ask people for help when needed.
Being able to help makes me feel that if I do this today, in the future, my son too will find help when he needs it.
