What I Learned at AutismOne


Note: I’ve got some video links to update as they get posted.  They should all be up by Tuesday.


  1. I can go all day, but not all night.  I turn into a pumpkin somewhere between 7pm and 9 pm. (Orphan Black is awesome, BTW)
  2. We’ve been missing out big time since we’ve been denied access to medicinal marijuana and its constituent ingredients. hempmeds.com has a line of high concentration CBD products that are derived from industrial hemp and are legal in all 50 states.Image
  3. Moms are an under-utilized natural resource. Also, we need to stop the Mommy Wars.
  4. There is always something new on the horizon. See: Magnetic Resonance Therapy.  WOW! Potential game changer.
  5. Our movement is starting to expand past autism to include parents concerned about ADHD, sensory processing disorder, food allergies, childhood leukemia, plus food activists and medical marijuana activists…  basically, anyone who wants to feel better and have healthy kids.  See: http://www.canarykidsmovie.com and www.oneintwo.org.
  6. Voltage is everything. You want to be alkaline because that means your cells have higher voltage.  Higher voltage = more oxygen.  It’s all about electrons.  Eat veggies and drink alkaline water.  See, high school chemistry does have direct bearing on your life!
  7. We’ve got to make change in the marketplace first, then the politicians will follow. See: Robyn O’Brien.
  8. Take care of yourself.  It may feel like that’s just not possible, but if you are the engine that runs your family and your child’s program (be it just ABA or everything under the sun, plus extra cooking), you’ve got to find away to keep your own engine in good working order.
  9. Essential oils do more than just smell good.  I’ll be investigating Young Living oil (my pal Guardian is a distributor).
  10. RoundUp is an utter DISASTER for human health.  Dr Stephanie Seneff from MIT gave a very chilling and very convincing presentation on it’s role in myriad health crises.  She also mapped the increase in incidence of several issues—food alleries, autism, Alzheimer’s—against the increased use of glyphosphate in the US and the graphs were kinda terrifying.  I totally get that correlation doesn’t equal causation, but damn, it’s worth taking a closer look at.Image
  11. So, GO ORGANIC!!
  12. There are amyloid-beta plaques formed in both autism and Alzheimer’s disease.  Several practitioners mentioned the disease process in both looks remarkably similar, but it’s age of onset that distinguishes it.  There is an enzyme available over the counter that will dissolve the plaques: Trehalose.  Here’s a video explanation.
  13. I learned more to help my everything-but-autism kid than I thought possible.

    Similarities between autism and Alzheimer’s – INTERESTING!

    I want to go to Autism One next year; would you give me a general sea of costs for the basics?

    • Kathy Brower says:

      Even if you message me in Facebook … I am just curious as I’ll have to save for the year.

      • Early bird conference fee was $99, there are about another $150 or so extras you can buy. Hotel conference rate was $119 per night. Meals at the hotel were a little pricey.

      • Jackie Sebell says:

        A lot of people room together. We had 4 to a room so for 5 days, it was $130/each. There’s a whole foods (and liquor store) nearby so we get food (you can request a fridge) to save some money also.

    • jessica says:

      Roughly $1000. Hotel at A1 wed-sunday was about $550. Then figure A1 registration ( approx $100-300, then food and gas.

      • jessica says:

        PS we requested a fridge in January and didn’t get one, so don’t bank on getting it.

  3. And keep in mind you’ll want a couple hundred to take advantage of show specials–I got a bunch of Nordic Naturals, HempMeds CBD, Bulletproof Coffee (not sharing that!), and some minerals at a 20-25% discount.
