She had to take her daughter to see many doctors who had no conclusions and provided no help with her illnesses. Because of this, the author started to concentrate on reading and researching, hoping to find a cure for her autistic daughter. She used her motherly power to present a whole new perspective, striving to explore new theories and methods in order to change the pathological condition of her daughter’s digestive tract. She incorporated diet therapy to treat neurological diseases especially autism spectrum disorders. To help her daughter change her pervasive developmental disorder and epilepsy which, even with medication, was uncontrolled, she attempted to increase her daughter’s quality of life.

Spokesperson of TRUE LOVE/Member of Advisory Board

Alex Song was born in 2001 and is a sophomore studying in Flint Hill High School in Virginia. Alex is a very cheerful and energetic person. He has interest on all kinds of objects in his life. He hopes that one day he can change the world in the field he is good at. Alex likes doing sports, learning music, study economics and reading. When he was 12, his computer got hacked by a hacker. He started studying computer science at that time. He had wrote countless programs and algorithm. But he soon realized that living in this century that technology grew unbelievably fast, it is not enough to just study in one particular field. So he had been working on many other subjects like economy, psychology, etc. He hopes that one day he can use what he learns to help many others, especially children with autism.
