Jacob and Samuel are the gorgeous Montague brothers who are following a grain free diet. In a recent consultation with mum and dad it turns out that the boys really miss their fajita night since starting their new way of eating as it has been hard to find a grain free wrap. My daughter and I spent the whole weekend working on lots of recipes and combinations of ingredients to find the most perfect, bendable, and tasty wrap and we have finally cracked it! We have dedicated this recipe to the Montague boys and are thrilled that they will be able to share fajita night with mum and dad.
Jacob and Samuel are 15 and both have autism and they came to our clinic a couple of months ago. Since following their health plan they have really flourished. Their wonderful, dedicated parents have been amazing and have followed the boys health plan with military precision! Here is what mum and dad say about the wonderful progress the boys have made:
“Our 15yr old twin boys, Jacob and Samuel, were diagnosed as severely autistic shortly after their second birthdays. So drastically did their challenging behaviours impact on our lives that for many years – just to keep afloat – we simply relied on conventional therapies, such as behavioural interventions and PECS, to manage the boys’ conditions. Looking back they were little more than sticking-plaster interventions. By the time they were 9 the boys’ severity was becoming unmanageable, they were both aggressive and we were constantly advised to consider institutionalising them. No way. It was obvious that the conventional approach was not working – we needed to look more deeply into why the boys presented as they did and as such turned to biomedical interventions, the first being their diet and the use of supplements. Over the last few years the biomedical approach has been fundamental to the boys turning a corner and making slow but significant progress, though they remain non verbal. Then at the end of last year, after watching various and numerous webinars on biomedical interventions, I came across one by Stella regarding the work she was doing at Brainstorm Health. Subsequently we had a lengthy appointment with Stella, the boys had various tests done and an initial Health Plan for each was produced. The boys have been following the Plans since mid February of this year and we’ve recently had a follow up appointment with Stella in which we were able to report quite significant progress in such a relatively short time. Samuel’s bed wetting has ceased, Jacob’s vocalisation has increased ten-fold (he even came up to me a few days back and said a clear ‘Hello’) and both boys have calmed considerably. There have been no aggressive episodes at all since February from either boy. It’s so exciting because it’s such early days with Stella yet we feel she has already got a strong grasp of the particular issues each boy has. It is so evident that Stella knows her stuff, that she is passionate about what she does and that she tries to keep up on everything that is current in her field. After the follow up consultation with Stella further Health Plans have been drawn up for each boy following on from their previous progress. I cannot wait to see what the next month or so brings”
