Autism Remission

Families are still receiving the same message as 20 years ago

For the longest time, parents are told all bets are off; Autism is not treatable. Parents are told that is just who their child is; you can not change their neurochemistry. The options are medication, behavioral, and speech therapy, love them, try to keep them safe, and plan for adult living solutions. The treatment focus remains entirely on managing the child rather than improving the health and function of the entire family.

Choose Root Cause Healing

Fortunately, more than two decades ago, visionary medical providers and researchers began to investigate nutrient deficiencies, insulin resistance, mitochondrial health, autophagy, neurotrophic factors, metabolic abnormalities, dysregulated immune system, toxicity, overgrowth of gut pathogens, Lyme Disease and other neuro, biological, and nutritional imbalances with diagnostic labs for the purpose to learn how to help place symptoms into remission and restore function. These innovators created a new systems biology medical model called functional medicine.

Functional medicine has great potential but many barriers

  • Treatment plans remain child-focused.
  • Children are picky eaters and resistant to changing their favorite foods.
  • Families implement nutrition and lifestyle changes that do not match their current ability and quickly feel in over their heads.
  • Symptoms can become worse, and families stop everything.
  • Expensive diagnostic labs and numerous sophisticated and complex supplement and functional therapy protocols.
  • Sustaining out-of-pocket medical expenses place further stress on families.
  • Parents have unrealistic expectations of root-cause medicine.

How does Kara coach you to solve the problem differently?

  • Family care plan model includes the entire family in healing.
  • Guides families to create comprehensive, coordinated care that matches their current ability and layers interventions in a safe and intelligent sequence.
  • Supports the parents’ change process since they are their children’s environment and must lead by example.
  • Places priority on parents’ mindset, emotions, and spiritual connection to implement lifestyle/nutrition changes and medical protocols to reduce resistance and stress and optimize outcomes.
  • Budget time and money to align with family values to enhance return on investment.
  • Discover communication and interpersonal skills to go against the cultural norm and build better relationships.
  • Identify potential roadblocks and what you will rely on in times of increased chaos, stress, and adversity.
  • Transform sabotaging expectations by planning realistic goals.
  • Establish a strong foundation to be an effective partner with a functional medicine provider.

How did Kara come up with these solutions?

And why does she use remission instead of recovery?

Health Coaching + Nutrigenomics

Your environment and lifestyle, interplaying with your unique genetic code, is what tips you into expressing certain disease states. Genes load the gun, but the environment pulls the trigger. The good news is that your environment is modifiable! And when you know the precise nutrition, lifestyle, and nutrients you may have a higher demand for in times of increased stress, trauma, illness, or poor nutrition, you have the keys to making well-informed, personalized healthcare decisions.


Unlocking Your Body’s Instruction Manual with Nutrigenomics

We think of our genes as what controls our eye color or height, but your genetic blueprint actually plays a major role in many more subtle aspects of your behavior and personality – including your weight, coping strategies, autoimmune conditions, ability to focus, and even symptoms like depression and anxiety. I think of your genetic blueprint as an instruction manual for your body….

The 4 Biggest Problems in Functional Medicine (and how one tool solves them all)

Conventional Medicine for chronic disease is set up as “one pill for one ill.” In contrast, Functional Medicine requires you to be a participant in your lifestyle choices, understanding medical costs and driving health care decisions.

“My nonverbal son would gag and resist the new foods I tried to introduce.  When I realized I had the credit card, car keys, and the power to decide what foods come into the house, it gave me the confidence to establish boundaries. My son did not eat for 7 days. He asked for a sandwich on day 4. I didn’t even know he knew that word! On the 8th day, he ate baked acorn squash with ghee and has never again bulked at his food options.”
