Tristan has been on antibiotics since March 2010. We did have him retested for Lyme Disease after being on antibiotics for a year and he was still positive but he had half the number of strands he initially tested positive for. So he has been cured of three strands so far and our hope is within the next year or so he will be cured of this terrible disease. The changes we have seen in him since starting him on antibiotics have been incredible.....Does he still have Autism....yes. Is he a much happier and HEALTHY child....absolutely. That's all we want for him.
Here is Mason's video of Tristan's progress
Since this video was made there have been many new developments in our lives. Mason went on to finish his degree and did a first ever study on 5 different children that were all diagnosed with Autism and Lyme Disease. He did a study on their progress (related to physical and mental changes) before and after treatment and the results are unbelievable. So unbelievable are their physical/mental changes from the antibiotic therapy that it makes you wonder...was this the culprit all along? The name of his thesis is “The Correlation between Lyme Disease and Autism Spectrum Disorders”.

After consulting with many different medical professionals around the country Dr Robert Bransfeld (president of ILADS) and Dr Stein Harris were eager to co-author this study and just recently it was accepted to appear in the peer reviewed medical journal “Medical Hypothosis”. It is titled “Long Term Antibiotic therapy may be a effective treatment for children co-morbid with Lyme Disease and Autism Spectrum Disorders”. (we will also have a link to it as soon as it comes in print!!!!!) I am so proud of
