what about Dr. David Hayes?  He's in the Asheville area  Last I heard he still did homebirths.
I don't know for sure if it works or not personally.  You may have already found this blog but I love Mommypotamus.com.  She has lots of info about this stuff on her website. If I remember correctly, the doctors told her she couldn't have children at first.  That's how she got started with WAP.  Now she's pregnant with #3.  Also, www.FoodRenegade.com is a good WAP site and she has an ebook about babies and fertility.  Oh and so does Mommypotamus.com!   HTH, Marnita
I've recently been digging into this type of research on the internet.  I've come across two really good books.  Nourishing Hope for Autism by Julie Matthews and also Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies by Kenneth Bock.  I looked at the previews on Amazon.com and was very impressed.  It really explains it so much better than I could.  But it isn't just gluten sensitivity.  It talks about the sensitivities causing inflammation possibly...
I haven't decided anything about speech therapy yet.  But I'm trying to give my child time to talk more.  He has been changing so much just in the last week or so.  I want to see how he develops on his own in the next month or so.  Then if he's not progressing AT ALL, then I'll look into it.  There is a speech therapist that comes to my oldest little boy's preschool so that's an easy find.   My oldest little boy who's 4 yo almost 5 just started preschool last week.  We...
Thanks for all the advice. It has made me a little more at ease. I'm still worried but really just about his talking. I'm not worried as much about the aspergers. I just keep thinking when is he going to start really talking to me. He says a few words like no, daddy(sometimes), hey, and sometimes if you are really listening he'll try to say Thomas or curious George. He has said momma but that is very rare. He used to say tractor all the time around the age of one but then...
So sorry you had such a bad reaction from you ped office.  I just took my two children in for well checks this week and the PA that we see at our family practice mentioned that my son has some Asperger's characteristics and that we might want to start the GAPS diet and/or Paleo if we didn't want to be as strict.  I was so happy that we had this amazing PA literally 2 minutes from my house and I couldn't easily talk about not vaccinating and about feeding the raw milk...
I think the man we saw has a son that had similar characteristics when he was that age.  He didn't say he had Asperger's but mentioned he had some characteristics that sounded like that.  He offered to send us to a specialist to get tested/diagnosed but we said no for now.  He mentioned trying the GAPS diet.  I think he said he was on it right now.  And we definitely think it will help.  We have looked at GAPS and/or Paleo previously for us but didn't think about it for...
Okay.  I knew my son was late talking.  And he had a well child check up this past week and the PA we saw said he had characteristics of Aspergers.   And I've looked it up.  He does I think.  The only thing that doesn't add up for me is the late talking.  Asperger's is not known for late talking.   His characteristics: -late talking -spinning around in a circle a lot.  He loves this. -covers his ears when he doesn't want to hear something or is expecting to hear...
I've shared it on facebook.
I would love to see a post on encouraging first time homeschoolers.
