My son Joshua is 13 years old, and was diagnosed with autism when he was about 6. He is considered to be moderately autistic.
Within 2-3 days of my son starting on the ganoderma and mycelium, he started speaking in full and spontaneous sentences, he had full and normal eye contact with everyone, his receptive language skills really grew, and his ability to follow directions has greatly improved. He is more of what I call ‘living in the moment’, really aware and participating in what is going on around him, interacting with his brothers and initiating play with them. His sleep has gotten alot better, and he is doing some things that every normal teenager would do, like sigh and say ‘OK’ when I say no to him. He is also joking, and is able to understand something that is said that is not a direct command to him. For example, I had called out to his brother that it was time to get off the computer, and Joshua immediately went to the computer, seeming to understand that it was his turn now without me having to directly tell him.
One of the jokes he did was with his one-on-one tutor. This might not seem like a big deal to people, but it’s a huge deal for an autistic child. They were together, and Joshua stepped up next to her, passed gas, giggled and stepped away. A normal behavior with humor attached!
Along with this, after Joshua started taking these pills, all the people that he interacts with on a regular basis started commenting about something being up with him because he had become such a chatterbox and they couldn’t believe it.
After 3 years of homeschooling, he is now able to return to the school system!
