This is a very touching story about a 2-year old with Autism ( Piper )and EMPowerplus Q96
Doug: Erika has shared her experience with Q96 on our granddaughter, Piper. So thankful for this product – it is not just for people with mood disorders or who are on the spectrum – it helps everyone! Erika: I wanted to share my experience with Q96 since we started my daughter on this vitamin/mineral supplement at the age of 2.
Our daughter Piper was always an eager child. She came in to the world earlier than expected weighing only 3lbs 10oz. Her delivery was nothing short of traumatic, as a doctor called an emergency Caesarean which by the time they rushed me to the surgical theatre and opened me up, Pipers head and shoulder had already passed through my cervix. Given that I was already opened at the stomach, they had to push her all the way back up and deliver her through my abdomen.
This very small bundle of joy was black and blue due to the pressure of someone’s hand pushing her back up. And the blood vessels in both her eyes had been busted and were bright red.
My husband and I were always worried that something may have happened due to the trauma of her delivery however, she started hitting her milestones like trying to talk, crawling, walking, and certain motor-skills. From a doctors perspective at her 12 month check up Piper was developing fine. She had even started to copy a bit
. I noticed from 12 months to 24 months Piper hadn’t hit any more milestones and it was as if she had started to regress. She was no longer talking, it seemed she was constantly ignoring me when I would speak to her, she walked on her tiptoes, played alone, didn’t interact with other children, was only interested in toys that made noise, or objects like sticks and balls, she started to have extreme tantrums in any park or new place we’d take her to. We found ourselves becoming prisoners of our own home for fear she would hurt herself during a tantrum when in public
. At her 2nd birthday I met some of my other friends who also had 2 year old children and realized that Piper was very far behind in her motor skills, her speech, her interaction etc. At this point I went to find an answer and read about Autism. Many people (even doctors) told us that children develop differently and that I shouldn’t be so concerned. However, as a mother, I think our instinct knows when something isn’t right
. I took Piper to a specialist and he observed her for 2 hours and the conclusion was that he believed Piper to be on the Autistic Spectrum, he also pointed out the most hurtful thing which was that Piper didn’t make genuine eye contact with me, that she only looked through me. Then demonstrated with another 2 year old how Piper should be looking at me. I was devastated that my intuition was correct, and because I didn’t know much about Autism I was scared for her.
My father had been working with Q Sciences as he’s always been passionate about minerals and vitamins and has always believe that with proper nutrients the body has the ability to repair itself. My dad started sending me bottles of Q96 to try with Piper. We started with 1 capsule in the morning (mixed in yogurt) and another capsule at lunch time (mixed in yogurt or chocolate pudding) we didn’t really notice much improvement until about the 6 week mark when we had raised her to 2 capsules in the morning and 2 in the afternoon (both mixed in a yogurt substance)
We are now about 3 months in to using Q96 and here are some of the amazing results we’ve seen
- . • Piper’s toe walking has reduced.
- • Her tantrums have drastically reduced
- •She grabs my face to look me in the eye
- • She is affectionate and kisses and hugs us
- • She will request things instead of screaming
- • Textures like Grass and Sand doesn’t bother her anymore
- • She is more tolerant of different sounds and noises that used to send her out of control (ie: baby crying)
- • She doesn’t get frustrated as much since she’s more able to express herself
- • She is interacting with other children. Joining them when they play – even trying to talk to them
- • In unfamiliar places her anxiety seems to be much better. We even enjoyed the park together the other weekend. Something we’ve never been able to do.
MOST EXCITING of it all is that Piper is starting to speak! We hear her beautiful voice trying to say words. Just to hear “Mama or Dada” will brighten your heart
. This morning was the first time we’ve seen her point and read a picture book on her own.
During our phase of trialing Q96 I was a skeptic. I think my husband and I both were and I thought that perhaps everything we were experiencing she was doing on her own and it had nothing to do with the supplement. So, without telling anyone I stopped giving it to Piper for 7 days to see what would happen. After the 3rd day her tantrums increased and she became very difficult to control when she would have her episodes. Our Nanny said “Gosh, I don’t know what is wrong with Piper this week she has been so difficult and unsettled” I said to her “I haven’t had Piper on that Q96 for about a week” She said “PUT HER BACK ON NOW! Oh my gosh!This stuff really is working”.
Since then we’ve made sure that Piper hasn’t missed a dose and people in the autism community where we live are wondering what therapy we’re doing with her. When I tell them it’s mainly a supplement to feed her brain with the necessary nutrients it needs they are shocked! Q96 hasn’t only helped our family – its saving my daughter so she can lead a normal functioning life.
If anyone would like to reach out to me directly please do – I’m a Q96 Believer. (I’m even taking the woman’s pack to help with stress and coping with anxiety – also been amazing)
PS: This may not seem like much to many people but seeing her change and learn or do something new every day is amazing because she didn’t change for over a year or learn anything new. Especially for a little girl we were told would probably never verbally communicate with us.
Kind Regards, Erika Harvey
