    1. If you want to help a child with Autism see a dr. This woman knows nothing except how to pose in front of a camerannymccarthybodycount/Jen

    2. This woman knows nothing! You CAN NOT cure or prevent Autism! I have worked with children and teens with Autism for 8 years What a family needs is a good team of therapists who can help teach a child with ASD how to function to the best of their ability in the world outside of their own. Consult a professional if you think your child may have Autism Someone with a degree who knows more than a mother that thinks she has "cured" her son.

    3. There! Is! No! Way! To! Heal! Or! Prevent! Autism! If you want to "prevent" the onset of autism, like it's this horrible, crippling disease, then you are in no way fit to be a parent. You're the same people who suck their teeth and claim "well, I just couldn't care for a disabled child". You are making a choice to be a parent of a human being, warts and all. Be a goddamn parent. Otherwise, get a puppy or a kitten.I'm sick and tired of this attitude to the neurodivergent.By the way, the mercury i [...]

    4. Wait a second isn't this lady, like, a former model who thinks she's somehow an expert on autism and thinks that vaccines cause it? Seriously, WTF. Read a great book debunking "anti vaxxer" thinking and a lot of other conspiracy theories,How to Fake a Moon Landing. Plus, why does everyone think that autistic people need to be "cured" of their autism? Autism isn't just one kind of syndrome, it's a spectrum with lots of different people. Many people on the spectrum that I've met are some of the sm [...]

    5. This book was more in depth than the Conquering Autism book, and although I found more things in it that made me stop and think, I also have reservations about it. The give-and-take interview style, and the sometimes condescending tone of the interviews did not work for me. And if you want to convince me scientifically, don't bring God or religious terminology into the text. I think there may be something here, but portions did not work for me at all.

    6. "Alternative" view of how to deal with autism. You can tell there is an agenda in parts, but I think it brings up great points that many parents wouldn't think to question (after all, shouldn't your doctor know what is best for your child?). It makes a great point that while we may not understand a disorder, if we treat other issues (eg bowel disorders, which are common in people with autism) then the symptoms may be reduced also. Information/resources is well organized and I could see this bein [...]

    7. Published in 2009, many findings would now be considered "incomplete" and "inaccurate." I read this book when a student in my class had Autism and his mother requested a read sections, and/or, this book. I now give it 3/5 stars not because I stand with or against any of Jenny's beliefs, but because I remain neutral. Every parent will fight to their last breath for what is best for their child; that is what I believe.

    8. Dr. Jerry Kartzinel is a board-certified pediatrician who has a son with autism and has great, practical solutions for helping families deal with autism and get their children on the road to recovery. A great primer for any parent with an autistic child.

    9. I am glad to have this information condensed in one place. I am still getting familiar with approaches for Autism and the ideas around this diagnosis. I am glad this book lays them out so clearly. The supplements section is going to be worth revisiting, and may make owning the book worthwhile.I agree with other critisms that they take an overly aggressive stance against doctors. I am sure it is stemming from the personal experiences and one should not expect to find incompetence in every doctor [...]

    10. This book is the complete encyclopedia of autism and what you can do to take back your child's health. As a healthcare provider myself, I am incredibly impressed with the quality of imformation in this book, as well as the exceptional manner in which Jenny and Dr. Jerry broke it down and made it easy for the non-medical person to understand. This book is a beacon of light for parents who are frustrated by the medical establishment, and feel that they are not getting the answers they need or the [...]

    11. This book is filled with information. Most of it I had heard or read about in other Autism books. The book reads like an interview and that part was a bit annoying. Most of the interventions the Doctor and Jenny wrote about are good ideas that parents should consider when treating autism. The book only talked about supplements and biomedical treatments. They mentioned in passing some other interventions and I think it is important to keep in mind that there are many behavioral therapies availabl [...]

    12. Confession: I didn't finish it. The entire book was written in a question and answer style with Jenny McCarthy asking a doctor questions about autism treatment. I tried to forge through it but it was the style that turned me off. There was a lot of good information in the book but I was too hung up on it being a several hundred page interview.I also had personal issues that tripped me up. The doctor talked about adopting a child with autism as though he was doing a great humanitarian thing (I fe [...]

    13. Lots of good info, but there were points where I was listening to an infomercial about what products and supplements I needed to buy. I might have found more benefit if my son had more definitive symptoms. He's on the Spectrum but so high functioning that his symptoms aren't as evident as those discussed in this book. The biggest positive? If diet can alleviate symptoms, there is hope, and, your child will not need to remain on a restrictive diet forever to achieve these results (according to th [...]

    14. This is a must-read for ANY parent. I will warn you that the Q&A style is a bit annoying and Jenny McCarthy gets off track/annoying in some of her comments however, the Dr. gives sound advice backed by research. I believe there are diet and lifestyle guidelines in this book that would help any child get or stay healthy. This book made me feel very confident in some of my decisions and added to the regret I feel for some- however it gave real plans and ways to make up for past health mistakes [...]

    15. Very interesting read. It was my first introduction to the world of biomedical treatments for autism. If you want to pursue biomed treatments for your child, this book is a must read. It provides very useful and detailed information. Readers should be cautioned that it is not a fair and balanced review of the research surrounding biomedical treatments however. In general, I dislike the antagonistic tone toward traditional medicine in of all the Jenny McCarthy autism books. Also be warned that Je [...]

    16. The Prevention piece of this book begins on page 262 and is only 13 pages long, but many of the recommendations were not new to me for general healthy living and limiting toxins to your unborn baby. Although the writing style of the book (question and answer, with lots of jokes and comments) was not my ideal, it covered numerous biomedical treatments for children with autism. It reinforced the lengths and trials parents will go to help their children improve their health.I wouldn't recommend it [...]

    17. I am reading this to learn more about biomedical/alternative methods used to treat symptoms of autism and other childhood delays. The Doctor co-author of this book makes very good points and really breaks down difficult biomedical/physiological topics into language that parents can understand, with ideas that you can follow through with at home. Lots of statistics and research included. If you ever wanted to learn about autism, this is a great book.

    18. This book was recommended by a professor of mine in order to see another view on autism treatment. It was an interesting book and many scientific concepts were nicely stated but personally I don’t agree with some of the treatment methods, have a hard time believing vaccines caused autism, and do not like it when a book only shows one point of view and completely excludes other valid views on the subject.

    19. The brazen title of this book caught my eye. So far, however, there's been nothing far-fetched or ridiculous. Very interesting, actually. Autism is a subject of great curiosity for me right now, so I'm trying to get as much information as possible and understand all the different viewpoints out there.

    20. I learned a great deal about autism and all the treatments available. There is a good deal of information on possible causes of autism as well. Although I am aware that some of the information in the book is considered a bit controversial, I still found the book to be a wonderful source of information. I would consider this a must read for any parent who has a child afflicted by autism.

    21. This was not an easy read. There was a whole chapter on 'poop'! But I do believe it is an important book for parents to read. Even if you don't have an autistic child, I am sure there are many take-aways which can help you improve the health of your children. As a teacher, I can definitely see how environmental toxins and food affect my students.

    22. Interesting. Unproven, but the intereventions are worth trying, imo. I read this almost 2 years ago, when I first started suspecting Julian had autism. They explore and imply the vaccine-autism link, which I think is dubious, but they also explore the links between autism and autoimmune disorders, GI issues, and food sensitivities, which are factual. Worth reading with a grain of salt.

    23. This book would probably have been more interesting if I had a child with autism and was trying to deal with it. The main part I was interested in was the information on different immunizations. I would like to get the book from the library (again) to go over what was presented in that section.

    24. Excellent insight into how health and diet can play into the autism spectrum and children's health/behavior as well. A must read for all parents, even those who don't have diagnosed spectrum children!

    25. This is a very practical application book to read for someone who has a newly diagnosed child. It has symptom diagrams that help you identify whether a reaction is "autistic", or a physical symptom. It helped me erradicate some of my child's behaviors by addressing physical maladies.
