He USED TO have Asperger’s?

Dave Asprey says he “used to have Asperger’s.”  Check out his podcast this week  
on glutathione. Remember, that book my doctor recommended back in 2006 that at that point knew that something was up with glutathione re-uptake and digestion problems with gluten and caisein? They didn’t know what caused Autism, but of all the therapies tried, at that time, the one that worked the most often was…. cheltation therapy (according to aggregated data on the back cover.) So, toxicity must be the problem.  (yay! Now available without cloak, dagger, or secret code!)

Well, science has marched on, and we know a little more about cell function. Dave Asprey, as is fairly usual for him, is talking with a cutting edge researcher,  however, has already taken a deep dive (in more ways that one LOL) and tried out experiments of his own. Listen carefully and you will hear him say that he “used to have Asperger’s) which often is considered “on the spectrum” or a part of autism.

Most people want you to believe that autism is incurable and “just happens.” Probably not so. And good.

My gosh! Dave Asprey has addressed this directly! A real find!


A brilliant man, no doubt, even if one disagrees with much of what he says, Dave Asprey has offered us a great deal in publishing so many interviews with cutting edge scientists. Absolutely, I think most parents and even most educators will want to check out what he has to say. And for this, he said it clearly : “Liposomal glutathione is the form we used during both our pregnancies, and we still take it regularly as it helps with inflammation and aids in detoxification of your body.” Imagine! take a supplement and boom!  Better than suffering for a lifetime, eh?


Could Autism be caused by…. or helped by….. food?

Well, it might be too much too much to say that Autism is caused by …. this particular substance. It is, however, necessary to say that Autism MUST be created by something or some things in the environment.  Back in the 1950s there were 2 or 3 per 10,000. Today, there is maybe 1 in 55 boys, 1 in 98 girls. So, obviously not genetic as was previously claimed.

Oh no! I just got an update on those stats. Del Bigtree reports now 1 in 30 children and as many as 1 in 18 boys!  See minute 2:00.38

There is some peer reviewed science on this. The AMA, last I checked, said they knew nothing. Well, that was 2006 or so. I hope they are doing better now. Although, we are now fairly skeptical of what we are told by medicals, now. Yet, we are hoping for progress, yes?

Clearly, we do know that autism correlates with toxicity. But really, we knew that fairly early on, say in 2007 if we saw journals like Applied Nutrition

Anyway, as  mothers, let’s do consider whether we want to expose our children to some of these common food additives: glutamate and other excito-toxins.  Further, we will all want to know some of the things that others like ABA therapists, have discovered.

Huberman has something to say on autism :

and gosh, this weekend, Feb 3 & 4, there is an Autism Summit in San Antonio, with Andrew Wakefield and Del Bigtee and others.

Dr. & Mrs. Colbert on Starting Your Child’s Day with a Good Breakfast


We re-run a cherished episode from when we were in the radio studio back in 2009.  Mrs. Mary Colbert had agreed to come on, but when Dr. Colbert came on, I was so surprised I nearly dropped my coffee. He is such a star in the circle in which I was running at that time. Of course, he continues to be the rockstar doctor in the Word of Faith circles. Just look how young he looks! Amazing! And so funny with brightly colored socks.

Anyway, you will be warmed and cheered this winter morning, thinking about good breakfasts for your child. About right now we could use some encouragement, right? We are right between Christmas cookies and Valentine candies! Yikes! Make those a once in a while treat, and in the meantime, serve up some brain boosting protein  and energizing fruits and vegetables.


There are so very many detrimental myths about foods, almost all of which are pushed by conventional authorities, for thier own benefit, or gosh… it has to be admitted, for the plain detriment of the population. Brains grow on good food.

Being sure that poor children had breakfast so they could do well in school was a concern from the lat 1880 until about…. maybe 1980. Back in 1880, charities that couldn’t afford meat and eggs for the children at least gave them meat soup. But now, after 1980, I see schools serving up commercial concoctions of transfat and sugar and dyes. Just about the worst. And this is charity? No, it is either thoughtless or intended to be harm.

Now that you know better, you will do better.

Since the 1990s, here in Texas, we had mothers advocating politically, successfully, for taking vending machines out of schools, in hopes of having better nutrition. But then, school lunches often changed from agriculture department surplus cooked in the school to commercial vendors. So, once again, after all the effort politically, the will of the people was subverted, and the children suffer.

Now that you know better, you will do better.


Poptarts were just about my favorite when I was a child. That was well before they all had “icing” on top. My dad said, “No,  you can put jam on your own toast.” Actually, today, I have much better than the bread my parents could obtain. I do make myself cherry tarts once in a while, but normally I have boiled pasture raised eggs, and a variety of other things like pomegranet juice, grapefruit half, home-made pumpkin pudding, bone broth, and always the highest quality tea with collagen and often raw cream. Wow! living high on the hog as we say in the country, but want to live long.

And my grandsons get country eggs, bacon, and “farm milk” because they live on a farm  — and wouldn’t have it any other way. Did I tell you that my grandsons are good competitors in chess tournaments, wrestling tournaments, and now starting in robotics competitions? And you bet, they do their chores everyday.

Detoxify? A child? Detoxification for children at Mom Level

Today, I share with you why detoxification is important and possibly of utmost importance in addressing “autism.” While chelation therapy  is the gold standard, this might not be right for the situation. Here are some ideas from the kitchen on how to eat a diet that should allow for more excretion of toxins than does the standard diet. Some ideas to think about and others to ask about.

The Feingold For ADHD

The Feingold Cookbook  

In the time period Dr. Feingold was writing these books, ADHD was the problem was the one most talked about. The other big contribution, besides the elimination idea, was the identification of artificial colors as a culprit for many people. One would think that the idea would be well known by now. BTW, I am not necessarily recommended and I get no comission ; I am just posting these for your convenience. Feel free to comparison shop.

Of course, fasting is a detox method also, but I don’t recommend that for small children! Still, I will post a few books along that line. Dr. Colbert is one of our friends.

New news:

I never even thought of this: that anyone would use applesauce in any manner except out of a glass jar (or unless travelling out of a plastic cup with a spoon.) I would not use these pouches, they are not even in my awareness…. oh yes, in daycares. Well, here is bad news. Isn’t that interesting that this news came the very week that I tell you about the history of a leading family and their child… and recommend applesauce. Wow!  Spiritual warfare!  Be prudent, take things in context, and find good help.

Love you. Have a blessed holiday season.
