It is not a secret that my family and I have lived and coped with Autism that is part of our daily lives. My son Jarod is now 14 and we have always tried to live our lives as normally and as ordinary as possible, difficult as it may be. The Autism spectrum disorder is a serious neurodevelopment disorder that impairs a child’s ability to communicate and interact with others. It also includes restricted repetitive behaviors, interests and activities. These issues cause significant impairment in social, occupational and other areas of functioning. Jar is 14 but his reading and language ability is for a child aged 7. There are emotions and facial expressions that he does not understand, this frustrates him. He has difficulty expressing his wants and needs to others. I really feel for him at times.
That is the reason I became very excited when I was invited to attend the Natural Integrative Wellness Solution Conference held at Tagaytay last September 8.
The conference was organized by Dr. Antonia Carandang-Park, founder of Antonia Health Solution. It is a meeting of doctors, scientist, academicians, technologist, parenting advocates and those working in the field of natural and integrative wellness.
Antonia Integrated and Functional Wellness Inc. together with partners Zazen Health Solutions, StemErgy Wellbeing LTD. recently brought together world renowned experts and leaders in their respective fields s for a comprehensive overview of this rapidly in research and development. The Natural and Integrative Medicine Conference was held at Taal Vista Hotel last Sept 8, 2016 in Tagaytay City
