HOW TO DEAL WITH REGRESSION & PLATEAUS
5 things to ask yourself if your child snaps back into tantrums, stimming, screaming other autism symptoms. This blog post is one of my most popular topics. Let me be clear. I am not writing this to judge or condemn stimming or autism symptoms. I know that adults with autism feel that these symptoms are part of their personality and that warrior moms shouldn’t try and “fix them”. My son’s life is so much more peaceful and independent without these rituals and behaviours. I am not saying that getting rid of them is something everyone should strive for. I am sharing what I did to help my son release them by working on these 5 things: READ BLOG POST HERE.

THE PROBLEM WITH AUTISM DIETS, PROTOCOLS, TESTS
Did you know that you don’t need to spend time and money chasing expensive autism tests, detox protocols, extreme autism diets, or therapies? In fact, every child is unique and bio-individuality means that there are no safe supplements or protocols. Every protocol from Nemechek, Gaps diet, Medical Medium to TRS detox and spectrum supplements will make some children worse (while some get better). Why? Because every child is unique and every child’s need is different and it changes all the time. It’s time we get the truth out. Click the pictures below to dive into this topic more:

WHAT IS THIS COMMUNITY – WHAT IS AUTISM?
Barefoot autism warriors is a family. It’s a tribe. It’s a path. It’s a way of life. We support each other in remembering how powerful we are and in turning autism around. Here’s my truth (It might not be yours, and that’s ok):
Autism is a wake-up call. Autism is a messenger. I don’t believe in “treating the symptoms”. I believe that when we LISTEN to the symptoms and hold space for what these symptoms are telling us and teaching us, symptoms CLEAR. In our case – they disappeared.
These children show us that “something’s gotta change”. Something needs our attention. It’s not our job to “remove the symptoms” or “fix” these children. They are here to HELP US reach higher levels of consciousness, sustainability, truth, unity, health and connection with nature and each other. They teach us that we are nature deficient and they are leading us back to our roots, truth and wisdom.
