    Reverse Autism Now

    Reverse Autism Now is a website that was developed for Parents of autistic children from Parents with an Autistic child. Hi, my Name is Jeramie Curtice and if you found this site looking for answers about how to help your child who has autism, then you are where my girlfriend and I were when we were first told that our daughter may have autism.

    Today she is 3, and was officially diagnosed with “Autism Spectrum Disorder” earlier this year (2009). But getting help from doctors and “specialists” was nearly impossible in my area and still is today. So I did just like many of you are right now, I turned to the Internet for answers. But what I initially found instead, was more questions than answers.

    Being laid off from work in a Michigan economy allowed me a little extra time to research my daughter’s condition in a campaign to answer the unanswered questions I had about autism. After several hundred hours of research, with much more ahead of me, I was able to add some links in the broken chain; put the mysterious puzzle of autism together, so to speak.

    My daughter has been under a very special and specific diet regimen for 12 weeks so far with some additional therapy provided by our County school programs. The funny thing is, Natalie–that’s my daughter’s name–has been enrolled in special education for about a year and a half now, but continued to regress until we introduced the restricted diet that is shared on this website.

    Only 12 short weeks ago from the time I write this now, my little pumpkin could only speak two words that sounded like, “Stow”, and “Stosh” confused for Stove and Stop, I think. Today, she has over 60 words in her vocabulary with new words everyday as a direct result of healing her body of damage from multiple causes.

    I do firmly believe that I know exactly what chain of events took place that eventually caused my daughter to have autism. I explain those events under “What caused my child to be autistic?.” Does this mean that I know what started it in the first place? No. This is one of the missing links. I know what progressed her autism, but not the exact cause, or trigger, in the first place.

    So am I claiming that I know what causes autism in all children? Not at all! But I indeed know what led Natalie to become autistic. And with that said, I also feel that I have to share what I have learned in an effort to also help other parents recover their children from autism. (If so desired)

    There are different levels of autism and some cases are different than others. That’s why the spectrum is so broad today. Some symptoms in one person, may not be exactly the same in another. In addition, some treatments that help one child, may not help the next. So let me add by saying, it is my personal belief that many autistic kids can be helped.

    Along my journey, I have met several parents that don’t want to reverse their child’s autism. Initially, my ventures led me to some very negative parents that all flocked together in a specific group on facebook and fed each other their negative hopelessness. I was so saddened by this, that I quickly decided to disassociate myself from them as much as possible if I ever wanted to see my daughter get better.

    This was the best decision of my daughter’s life. In only 12 weeks of a special diet, she is healthier, calmer, smarter, friendlier, more loving, and more like a 3 year old should be. And by the way, to all of the naysayers out their that told me this a year ago at the beginning of my quest for answers, I have this to say to you; I am no longer the “guy that just found out his kid has autism” and “just the Father that could not accept the truth yet”. Instead, I am the Father that knew better than to roll over and watch my kid suffer one more agonizing day. As she screamed, I researched. As she developed backwards, I researched. As she became disconnected from all of her surroundings, I researched. As she became hopeless, I researched, and fought for my daughter’s life.

    And in addition, as I researched, I also “got on the floor and played with her” as many of the parents who gave up prescribed to me. My child was and is loved by the most devoted parents that many people will ever know. If you have seen the movie, “Lorenzo’s Oil” this is only touching the surface of how far we as parents will go in order to see that our kids are well and have the same life and opportunities that we had/have as we grow.

    To the autistic adult that reads this, we have met several of you and work with some of you in our daughter’s school. To you I say, I applaud your intelligence and spirit. The phrase “Reverse Autism Now” should never offend you, because it’s not the spirit of an autistic child that is sick, it’s only their body in many instances. And our daughter was physically ill before she was mentally. Today, her body is doing better, her mind is healing, all while she continues to carry that same smile on her face and spirit inside that Dad fell in love with since I first felt her kick while inside Mom’s stomach.

    So who is behind ReverseAutismNow.org? Not a scientist, not a doctor, but a couple of parents who are excited to have their daughter back, and want the same for other parents as well. We’re not experts in the medical field, we just want to offer hope. And hope is indeed what you will find in the words of this website.
