Little Gracie was originally referred by Dr. Andy Barlow to me in the end of September 2013.
The parents had just moved here to southern California from New Zealand and had many of the classic problems associated with an ADD child. She was far behind in school, stuck in remedial classes and struggling with basic math. All common symptoms of ADD. Her parents did not want to medicate her and originally was referred to Dr. Barlow.
Little Gracie tested positive for primitive reflexes, ie Tonic Neck Reflex, Spinal Galant, ect . She also weak in the left brain and tested positive for leaky gut, gluten and many cross reactive foods thru testing with Cyrex arrays 2, 3, 4 and 5.
I started Gracie on a 6 month neuro-metabolic treatment program which included a leaky gut repair protocol, a gluten, sugar and all processed foods free diet.
The Brain based Therapy “BBT” included remediation of her primitive reflexes, tactile stimulation and math infused sensory training using the Metronome which was performed once weekly for an hour office visit. The parents were very active in drilling exercises for Gracie in between appointments.
By the beginning of the 4th month of treatment Gracie was put into normal classes and excelling in mathematics. By the end of her 6 month she had also turned 10 years old and was a totally different child than the one I originally assessed in September.
The effectiveness of what I learned from Dr. Barlow and other great neuro-metabolic BBT doctors is unrivaled at any level.
Thank you Andy for the great chance to change this little girl’s life forever.
