Our Experience with Wisdom Teeth

My special needs grandson, Aaron, now 17 and severely autistic, non-verbal, teen who displays many maladaptive behaviors, especially when he’s in pain, was very difficult to diagnose!

Most recently we were surprised to learn why/what was wrong, when he started lashing out and striking at his ear and the side of his face. It took us close to 4 weeks to narrow the cause down to severe tooth pain. After a very challenging procedure to remove 4 wisdom teeth, plus two more teeth, he is finally pain free.

We would like to commend the team at Tyler Oral Facial Surgery  (Tyler, TX) for their professionalism and understanding during this time. When your special child becomes a teenager, remember "wisdom teeth" as a possible source of behavior problems.

Our Experience with Magnetics

Our grandson Aaron was diagnosed severely autistic at 2 years old and was non-verbal. In 2008, I was introduced to Nikken. I had listened to many testimonies about Nikken and Autism, so we bought the Kenko Naturest Mattress Topper and a Nikken Kenko Dream Comforter with magnetic technology for him. Immediately we noticed that Aaron did not flop and thrash around in the bed like he used to.

Our Experience with Essential Oils

Autism therapies are expensive; we searched for practical solutions to use on a daily basis and without a big time commitment or ongoing expensive obligations.

With Aaron, we wanted to avoid prescription medications and use all natural methods where possible.

He needed help falling asleep and staying asleep. Essential Oils provided that help.

We found that Essential Oils modified his behavior and enhanced sensory therapy strategies.

Essential Oils also reduced his anxiety and improved his focus and concentration.
