What you are now able to do at this time…
The current medical establishment knows nothing beyond demanding “empirical evidence”, being the results of years of highly-expensive research and double-blind testing, in order to accept this type of theory and dietary Protocol. They keep asking Shauna “Why specifically, does this work?”, and “Where do all of these theorized imbalances come from?”, and “By what exact biological processes does your Protocol work” and all sorts of other questions that, quite frankly, are neither her primary concerns nor issues that we have all the exact answers to at this point in time, as we freely and openly admit to. After all, as a Naturopath, no one is exactly burying Shauna in millions of dollars to help expand this research and her base of case studies.
Unlike them, we’re interested in more than empirical evidence, as our sole intent is simply to do our best to create positive results for these kids and adults without a downside. We honestly have no way of knowing at this time how many or what percentage of children and adults who exhibit symptoms both within and outside the Autism Spectrum are even appropriate candidates for this Protocol. But let us just say that wherever Shauna has been able to find her identified commonalities in clinical observation and assessment, the results have been amazingly impressive in the vast majority of cases. Her results are simply far too good to continue to be ignored any longer.
As Shauna has absolutely nothing to “patent” here, she has made the decision to disseminate the results of her years of work directly to the public at no cost. She holds the Copyright to these writings, however she even grants you the right to make copies of these documents for use by friends, family or your doctor - just as long as you don’t do so for financial profit. Please don’t just copy and give out the “diet” portion alone, as it is not sufficiently compelling without also understanding the background of the work.
We invite you to use the links on this website to download the most current version of Dr. Shauna Young’s Spectrum Balance™ Dietary Protocol in a pdf format document – for free, no strings attached, and with our best wishes and prayers. In this document you will also find background information and simple instructions for using these healthy and manageable dietary modifications with a symptomatic child or adult, along with the entire family. We encourage you to strictly follow these guidelines in the hopes that you will begin to start seeing progress to some noticeable degree within as little as 2 to 4 weeks.
If you diligently use this Protocol at home or with the assistance of a healthcare provider and begin achieving any level of noticeable success, we simply ask and hope that you will do several things in return:
- First and foremost, tell others! Circulate our information and your personal story of hope to everyone you know in the ADD and Autism communities and post entries on the blogs of research and support groups
- If you have not done so already, we encourage everyone to please join our email update list at www.noharmfoundation.org so that we will be able to keep you informed as to new developments
- Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback regarding your experiences (positive or not) with the dietary Protocol so that we will be able to exponentially build and advance this research. We love to hear all your personal stories and hope to soon also have a blog appearing on our website to serve as an open forum for people to share their experiences with others internationally
- Lend your support by making a charitable donation of any affordable size with your check by mail to 140 Rock Point Drive, Durango, CO 81301, or with your credit card through the website www.noharmfoundation.org so that this work will continue and gain higher exposure and use
“message in a bottle”.
Although it is very important to us that families everywhere are able to access this valuable information and experiment with this program at no direct cost, we want you to consider this to be our “pay it forward” contribution to the wellness of society. The NoHarm Foundation is a not-for-profit organization with the missions of advancing the field of natural medicine, preserving health freedom and choice for the public, and broad dissemination of this information about new hope for Autism and other disorders to the general public and medical communities.
The amount of your donation is not important, but simply consider in retrospect what the information was worth to you and to the wellness of your child or other family member and please just do what you can to help us with our continuing efforts to get the word out to countless others and to advance education and effective research on the subject. As resources become available, a portion of this NoHarm charitable fund will also be utilized to subsidize and supply the expenses of families with less-than-fortunate circumstances in getting the help they need from Shauna and/or from other healthcare practitioners who choose to join us.
For some of you who are currently dealing with Autism and other related conditions, it may be an option and possibility to travel to personally consult with the Assertive Wellness Center in beautiful Durango, Colorado, as many have chosen to do for several years now. They see as many new clients as possible every week between Tuesday and Saturday. The services are very reasonably priced and the consultation process only requires less than a half day of your time. Even so, we understand that this may not be a viable option for many with transportation, time or financial challenges.
We fully understand any frustration you might feel around the void of localized help available to you at this time, but please know that we have been aggressively trying to attract help and support for this project from the medical communities, a number of Autism organizations and media outlets for several years now, and we have accepted the realization that only by this information directly reaching the eyes of the general public will sufficient attention be stimulated and directed towards a form of real progress for the millions of families worldwide that are dealing with these destructive conditions.
Just as soon as possible we will be making available additional written and video training materials that will be able to more extensively explain the science behind Shauna’s work and provide families more comprehensive instruction on trying to get the best results possible with this dietary Protocol from home until broader professional help is organized. These helpful training materials will be available to you with only modest donations to the NoHarm Foundation. Please understand that this is the absolute best we are able to do until such time as other health practitioners are willing to be trained and join our network in order to refer one-on-one professional support in your own geographical areas.
In the meantime you can greatly help this cause by sending this message on to any affected families you might know, to therapists and physicians, to any contacts in the media and to anyone else who cares that these syndromes are now needlessly affecting a tragically-growing number of our kids. With your help, we’ll be able to stimulate enough public and professional awareness so that we can accelerate into a new paradigm of research, prevention and effective care.
Why should people from all across the country and beyond have to travel to visit our Center here in Colorado in order to have access to this safe and inexpensive option, when they should be able to receive simple guidance and support right in their own communities? Amazed and elated parents of successful clients are constantly asking us, “Why aren’t you able to refer me to practitioners closer to us who are aware of what you’re doing?” Our goal is to be able to make that happen sooner than later.
A large part of our intention in releasing and sharing our findings to date, is to be joined by as many other open-minded practitioners as possible in order to expand this exploration and with it, the number of affected children and families that could be benefiting from this program right now. But we also need you – the Moms and Dads out there with affected children to open your minds and hearts and try this. This program is safe, and it could be as effective for you as it has been for so many clients who have tried it. There is no down-side, nothing to lose, and so very much to gain. Your child trusts you with their health and well-being. Please always do your best to be worthy of that trust.
