big changes in a little guy
I'm so happy. I almost can't believe it's happening. My 4 yr. old son, who is blind and autistic, has been 100% raw with the rest of our family for ten days now. In only ten days, he is a new person. He used to just whine most of the day. Now he is a happy little boy! During therapy today, he started humming. He has never hummed anything before. What's more...he was humming "Nothing But the Blood of Jesus". Then he told the therapist, "Jesus loves you." Also, I gave him a Lemon Chew cookie, and the therapist said, "Do you have a cookie?" and he said, "MY cookie!" He's never said "my" anything before. I didn't know he even understood ownership. What else is in that brain of his that I don't know yet? I can't wait to find out!
Just had to share,
WOW!!!...One more incredible story about the amazing power of raw food eating!! Thanks so much for sharing. I am thrilled for you and your family..but esp. for your little man! Take care and keep up the good eatin!:)

Wow, Allison, that is SO amazing! Please keep us posted. I'm so happy for you all!
Oh my gosh...if that isn't one of the most precious things I've heard to date...
That is SUPER AWESOME..."Nothing but the Blood of Jesus" - that's a powerful song and for that to be the FIRST song he's ever hummed...that is so special...so special!
Keep up the great work and please give the little man a hug and tell him how much he's inspired me tonight!

From one parent to another my thoughts are with you my friend.
I'm a bit of a jokester, but I'm all for the development of the little guy.
Peace and Prayers,
Father of 2 little people.
I have tears in my eyes as I write this. I've worked with many kids with autism so I know the stuggles. What a wonderful triumph and your lil' guy is right...it's nothing but the blood of Jesus! For this reason alone, it would have been worth the raw life! I am sooooooooo happy for you and I can't wait to hear more good reports.
It felt so good reading your experience it brought tears to my eyes.
I'm so happy for you and your son, he must be feeling so much better inside, clearer.
He's living testament that we were supposed to be eating raw, we all are.
A lot of stories bring me happiness, I think I'll always be touched by this one.
Prevention rather than Cure!
How absolutely wondeful! I am so very, very happy for you and your son. I pray that keeping raw will bring you and he many more joys and new experiences to share together.
That is such wonderful news. I just sent this link to a friend with an autistic son. What a breakthrough!

Awsome news Allison!
Allison, I had warmth rush through me when I read your post. How wonderful it must feel to see this happening to your child! God bless you both!
Thank you all for your well wishes.
Caramba, it was my idea to go 85% raw, and he has always been that. It was a naturopath's idea to put him on 100% raw. This is the amazing thing to me...I never thought the difference from 85% to 100% was a big deal at all. You just couldn't convince me it was. Well, this has convinced me! What a huge difference it has been to go from 85% to 100% for him. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.
Oh Alisson, this is so wonderful! I just sent it to my husband and he said it was THE best testimony he had ever read. If I ever needed proof that I'm doing the right thing, well, here it is. I know you are so happy! Have you told your naturopath yet?
I've been humming "Nothing But the Blood of Jesus" for the last few minutes!
Thank God for raw!!
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
