Marcia Hinds shares her story of hope, as only a mother can, in the book I Know You’re In There. The “experts” said Ryan would need to be institutionalized. But they were wrong. Ryan is now an engineer at a major aerospace company. Ryan’s recovery was not miraculous, but the result of receiving proper medical care.
Believe it or not, most doctors still don’t know how to treat Autism. Although it has been over twenty years since Ryan was diagnosed, it is still not common knowledge that autism is medical and treatable.
An “autism” diagnosis no longer has to mean “game over” and parents don’t have to helplessly watch as their children slip away. If a child’s health can be restored by treating hidden viruses and infections, recovery becomes possible. This is the message that Marcia Hinds delivers at autism conferences across the country. I Know You’re In There chronicles what she did to help Ryan and tells his story in a way that is heartbreaking, heartwarming, and sometimes hilarious.
According to Dr. Martha Herbert, MD, PhD, Harvard Medical School neurologist, researcher, clinician and author of The Autism Revolution a dysfunctional and compromised immune system is the cause of the autism symptoms. Dr. Herbert knows how to treat autism and understands that once the body works, the brain follows.
Dr. Herbert said this about Marcia’s book: “I Know You’re In There shows that autism is not a hardwired impairment stamped into the brain by the child’s genes and destined to remain fixed forever, as we’re often told. Instead, it is the total load of challenges to a child’s whole system that overloads the brain and causes the behaviors associated with autism. Even a few treatments that reduce the load and increase supports can make a huge difference. Ryan’s recovery is a testimony to this approach.”
Marcia’s inspirational book about Ryan’s recovery will make you rethink Autism. Many parents are still told there is no hope for their children. And many kids may not get better as a result. This encouraging story has segments written by Ryan’s dad, his sister and Ryan himself. Ryan’s family never gave up on him, because periodically they caught a glimpse of the kid they knew was in there.
