Defeat Autism Now!From autism.com:

What is DAN!?
The Autism Research Institute convened a group of about 30 carefully selected physicians and scientists in Dallas in January, 1995, for the express purpose of sharing information and ideas toward defeating autism as quickly as possible. The participants, from the U.S. and Europe, represent the most advanced thinking by some of the best minds in the autism world. The participants continue to work together toward the goal of finding effective treatments.

One major goal of the DAN! Conference was to produce a document that could be used by physicians everywhere as a guide for the clinical assessment of autistic patients, leading to appropriate treatment. After a year of strenuous work the document, representing a consensus statement of the state-of-the-art alternative medical approach to the diagnosis and treatment of autism, is now available. The 244-page manual is titled Biomedical Assessment Options for Children with Autism and Related Problems. Parents and physicians who do not regard psychotropic drugs as the best or only means of treating autistic patients will welcome this advanced manual on clinical assessment.

  • Earthwalker

    Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.
