The Autism Revolution:

Whole Body Strategies for Making Life All It Can Be 

HeartMath Institute (HMI) Update

After years of treating patients and analyzing scientific data, Harvard Medical School researcher and clinician Dr. Martha Herbert offers a revolutionary new view of autism and a transformative strategy for dealing with it. Autism, she concludes, is not a hardwired impairment programmed into a child’s genes and destined to remain fixed forever.

Instead, it is the result of a cascade of events, many seemingly minor. And while other doctors may dismiss your child’s physical symptoms—the anxiety, sensory overload, sleeplessness, frequent illnesses or seizures—as coincidental or irrelevant, Dr. Herbert sees them as vital clues to what the underlying problems are, and how to help.

Drawing from the newest research, technologies, and insights, as well as inspiring case studies of both children and adults, Dr. Herbert guides you toward restoring health and resiliency in your loved one with autism. Her specific recommendations aim to provide optimal nutrition, reduce toxic exposures, limit stress, and open the door to learning and creativity. As thousands of families who have cobbled together these solutions themselves already know, this program can have dramatic benefits—for your child with autism, and for you, your whole family, and perhaps your next baby as well.

Join Dr. Martha Herbert and HeartMath Institute's Jeff Goelitz for an informative discussion about autism. They talk about the latest research, common myths, controversies and common-sense strategies for helping parents, clinicians and educators relieve some of autism’s debilitating symptoms and helping children learn and flourish.

Herbert, a prominent Harvard Medical School researcher and clinician who treated patients and analyzed scientific data for years, has a revolutionary view of autism. She says autism is not something that is hardwired into a child’s genes and remains forever, as parents often are told. Rather, Herbert explains, autism is a series of challenges and many can be tackled deliberately and methodically. She recommends providing optimal nutrition, reducing toxic exposure, bolstering the immune system, reducing stress and promoting learning and creativity.
