Lyme-Autism Connection Conference
Dr. Gonzalez first came in contact with the L.I.A. Foundation through the wonderful work of Dr. Elizabeth Hesse Sheehan. (She has offices in Spokan and Kirkland, WA.) Dr. Sheehan has been able to help children that fall in the spectrum make incredible progess, with the use of Quantum Neurology®, Applied Kinesiology, diet and nutritional counceling, and light therapy. From her contacts, Dr. Gonzalez was first asked to speak at the 3rd Annual 2009 Conference. It was such a joy for us to see first-hand the impact Quantum Neurology has had on so many families. Dr. Gonzalez has been asked to speak again at the 4th Annual 2010 Confernce. We hope to many of you there this year and many after.
Dr. Gonzalez was also asked to attend the 2009 THRiiiVE Summit. Please watch the video below of Dr. Gonzalez and Dr. Joe Mercola.

About the L.I.A. Foundation (taken from their website)
1 out of 150 children are diagnosed Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many of these children have also been diagnosed with Lyme Disease/borrelia related complex, but most remain undiagnosed. It is estimated that up to 90% of children with autism may be also infected with Lyme Disease/Borrelia however, since testing is difficult, current research shows that 20-30% of these children harbor this bacteria. This number would represent over 150,000 children in the United States alone. Most of these children have never even been bitten by a tick. Parents have no idea how their child would have contracted this bacteria.
However, it is important to note that borrelia is not the only infection that autistic children have. Many children also have Mycoplasma, Herpes, Chlamydia, Babesia, Bartonella and many more.
In addition, this is a family disease. We intend to educate parents on their own health and how this is not just “autism” we are looking at, we are looking at a multi-faceted disorder which affects both the young, the old and all of us in-between. Although our goal started out to look at just Lyme disease and autism…we have evolved to include other such infections, therefore looking at an infection based cause to autism.
The goal of this organization is to provide education, awareness and research into an infectious based cause of autism. Yes..Lyme/borrelia is our PRIME suspect, but we realize that this is multiple infections happening on a disabled immune system and these infections can be triggered by many factors including but not limited to vaccines, chemicals/pesticides, electromagnetic frequency and a whole host of environmental factors. When we consider all options, only then will our kids be able to begin improving.
