I Want to Help Because I am a Patient Too
Originally diagnosed on the spectrum and was in a wheelchair for two years.
At 18-months old old, I was diagnosed on the spectrum. One morning I woke up with violent motor and vocal tics. It was terrifying. My health continued on a downward spiral. Eventually, the pain was so bad that I was unable to turn myself in bed or walk. I lived in a wheelchair for two years. We traveled the world seeing top doctors and physicians for an answer.
My lungs, eyes, brain, kidneys, skin, and gut, all became compromised. My mother believed she would lose me. It was a very traumatic period for our family. But, my mother is neurologist and she was motivated to discover the root cause of my medical issues.
Her research led to my accurate diagnoses. All these years, I suffered from Lyme disease and chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS). Conventional medicine helped me recover to about 85%. My mother was determined to figure out how to get me to 100% and on a path to living a full life.
Integrative medicine and clinical herbalism allowed me to reach for and accomplish my dreams. I’ve been accepted to Ivy League high school summer programs and won science and math awards.

That’s what brought him to Friday’s press conference conducted by U.S. Rep. Chris Smith and Wall resident Pat Smith (no relation), president of the national nonprofit Lyme Disease Association. The news: After decades of foot-dragging, the National Institutes of Health has formulated a strategic plan for tick-borne disease research.”
