Tristan is amazing us more and more each day!  We feel blessed.  Lately he has decided to start playing with toys and reading books - two things he had no interest in before.  He has really started interacting more and more with his young brother Jake.  This picture from Halloween is the first time we were not only able to get him to stand next to Jake, but to look at the camera.  He did this on command.  This simple task is such a big deal in our world.   He continues to be very loving towards others.  Just wanted to show some updated pictures of him and how he is growing so fast!  Tristan is currently not on antibiotics but remains on probiotics, Vitamin D and other herbal supplements.  His continued progress amazes those who know him best. 

 Another big development in our lives is that Tristan has been accepted to receive an autism trained service dog from Retrieving Freedom Inc.  We found out that he should receive a service dog within the next six months!!!  We are so excited for him.  If you want more information on how these dogs will help Tristan, we have set up a blog site "A Dog For Tristan" at .
This is a picture of Tristan with service dog, "Tu", at a fundraiser set up by my inlaws, Mark and Denise Kuhn, this summer.  It is amazing how these dogs have such a calming affect on him.
Tristan and I are doing much better these days.  Although in the past I have taken breaks from treatment, I am currently on continued antibiotic treatment along with herbal and other natural supplements.  I continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet daily (organic as much as possible).  Physically I am feeling 95% better than when I starting treatment almost 3 years ago.   We are taking things one day at a time.   We feel so blessed to have found the Lyme Disease when we did.  It has changed our lives and our son's for the better!


  1. Hi... I just watched your husband's presentation at the ILADS conference and came to check out your blog. I was just diagnosed with Lyme after being misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia for 16 years. I've had 2 children in that time and, while they don't have signs of autism like your son, they do have some symptoms that concern me and am thinking of getting them tested soon. So... I was reading through your blog and was pleasantly surprised to learn that you are in Iowa. I live in Waterloo. So, I'm hoping maybe we could chat from time to time. I just started a blog as well... I do also have a page for it on Facebook, so maybe we can connect there? Thanks for sharing your story.

  2. Hi I just watched your husbands presentation at the ILADS conference - thanks to you both for sharing your journey. Keep blogging because it will be so useful for others to share.
    I started my Looking at Lyme blog in November 2009 now with over 129000 page views so far and between 400-500 page views a day I am hoping it helps raise awareness as well as being a useful resource for me.
    I will share your blog with Facebook friends in the Autism world and come back to read some more later.

    Good luck with your treatment and that of your son

  4. Hi I have a similar story I had a lot of health problems before and after the birth of my boys. I had Shingles MRSA and impetigo infections. I am from CT everyone I know has Lymse. I have never been tested. I had my 5 year old tested and it came back negative. I know there are alot of false negatives. I was wondering did you provoke lymse in your children with natural or regular antibiotics? Thank you

  8. As a sign of gratitude for how my son was saved from autism, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My son suffered autism in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always have difficulty with communication, , and he always complain of poor eye contact . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to autism . I never imagined autism has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life.autism has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story

    My daughter suffered from autism for more than 2 years which we started experiencing in her when she turned 1 year and 5 months we all thought it will end but got even worse as days went by. We tried all several treatments and therapy prescribed by various doctors we met but to no avail, she lost total concentration and always complain of sensitivity to sound . She usually tells me she haves poor eyes contact. This were steady disorder that disrupted her entire life, even at night she slept less because of this.It was during a casual conversation with a friend that i learned about Dr Williams herbal medicine I was able to contact him on his email address. and give him all the necessary information that he needed,few day later he sent me the herbal portion and his medicine was able to restore her back to normal and she is very okay now without any side effects whatsoever. If you have autism, do not hesitate to contact him on for advice and for his product. I hope this also helps someone out there

  10. I am Sophie from Canada, I once suffered from a terrible and Chronic autism ,since i was bone , the doctor told me there was no permanent cure i was given medications to slow down its progress, i constantly felt my health was deteriorating as i constantly go out of breath,and this illness was really terrible especially when am going out with my friends, i have this constant disorder for about 31 years which result to epilepsy, this was really a terrible ailment ,on thin one day that i was going through the internet,and i came across a post of Mrs Kate on how his son was been cured from autism through the help of Dr Williams herbal product, I contacted this herbal doctor via his email and explain everything to him and make purchase of his product,few days later he sent me the herbal medicine through courier service, when i received the herbal medicine, i used it for 1 months and two weeks as prescribed by dr williams and i was totally cured of autism within those week of usage,on thin now i have not experience any sign or characteristics again . for more information you can visit his blog for help

    I was always praying to have a testimony when ever i saw people sharing their own testimonies which really took me years but today i am the happiest father on earth.My son suffered autism for 5 years, after taken different kind of western medication without been cured.All these years my son was like a death person but today he is been cured.and you do not know how i feel having my son back to normal because it was not really easy for me having just two son and one been abnormal.I took time to search the internet which i found a lot of people thanking Dr. williams concerning the same problem and i discussed it with my wife and she agreed we should give a try so we order his product which my son took for 28 days and he is very much okay now.I will advise you to stop wasting time on all these western medicine because they only work for some times and the problem bounce back again.Contact for advice and for his product and be the next to give your testimony.

    I'm giving a testimony about Dr. WILLIAMS for the great deed he have done for my family, he has
    the natural cure to autism, he cured my son from autism ,
    though I went through different website I saw a testimonies about this
    Dr Williams, I was like: 'Dr Williams have the autism cure why are
    people still suffering from it?' I thought of it, then I contact Dr Williams, I didn't believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about my son, then I sent them to him, he prepared the (CURE) and sent it to me through Courier Service he gave my details to the Courier Office, they told me that 1-3 days I will receive the package and my son took the medicine as prescribed by Dr Williams and i took my son for check-up 1 week after finishing the medicine, then the autism was not there anymore, if you are suffering from autism you can also contact him on his via email address: for his help.
