I am a mother of two children and a parent coach for frequent dose protocol. I recovered myself and my kids from mercury poisoning using this protocol.
My journey began in 2006 when I learned I and my children had heavy metal toxicity. I started looking for answers because my health had suffered, and now my child was diagnosed with PDD-NOS. I knew there had to be a reason for my child's regressions. I joined several online message groups and began learning everything I could. In one of those groups, I met Dr. Andrew Hall Cutler. It was there I learned about mercury. I read his books and began learning as much as I could about safe detox and heavy metals. I had researched other protocols and saw practitioners, but nothing made sense, so we tried frequent dose protocol. My child's response to the protocol was profound and immediate. It was like a light turned on. I could see my child coming back to life again.
I began moderating a group which is where I met Tressie. I learned from others there and shared what I knew. I also had the privilege of having Andy Cutler as a mentor over the years. I learned so much from him. I also had the unique experience of being a mercury-poisoned parent trying to navigate all this stuff to get my family better, which helped me understand how to help others.
I spent 15 years educating myself about natural health, Biomed, and holistic health. I've never stopped learning. I also have an AAS degree in medical office and administration. I continue to focus on using diet, supplements, and herbs. I studied endocrine dysfunction, heavy metal toxicity, and therapies for children on the autism spectrum. I have worked with thousands of people with mercury-poisoned children, and there is no better experience than living with mercury poisoning and recovering from it. That's a real school right there!
When I began this journey, I never expected my child to improve so much with this protocol. I know metal toxicity played a role in my child's symptoms. I have seen the same response in thousands of children. Toxicity affects everything.

Hi my name is Tressie Taylor.
I am a wife to a wonderful and supportive husband and the mother of six terrific children.
My journey with Biomed started in 2007 when my son was diagnosed with low to moderate functioning Autism. Like most parents, I was desperate to find answers to help my child.
I joined my first special diet listserv in 2007 and got started with GFCFSF diet. We found a biomedical doctor in our area and did all we were told to do and we saw some progress as well as some bumpy patches. In the summer of 2008, we moved out of state. We lost the doctor we had been seeing and my son started refusing his supplements (they really did taste awful). His behavior regressed terribly, so I was once again desperate. I went back to the internet to find an answer.
In April of 2009, I found the Autism-Mercury group and after having a question answered by Dr. Andrew Hall Cutler Ph. D., I threw all my energies into learning how to help my son. I started AC Protocol to Detox my little boy and his progress was truly amazing. We saw more improvements and gains in his first three rounds (three weeks) following this method than we had in the entire year and a half with our old doctor.
Through reading Andy's books and the listserv, I was able to discover why the doctor's protocol was not helping my son, and find strategies that were actually beneficial to his long term health and development.
I began moderating the Recovery from Autism listserv in 2010 and was then researching answers not only for my son but for other parents as well. This experience gave me a unique perspective on the challenges we face as parents in the sea of misinformation that surrounds us.
My son may have begun with a diagnosis of Low Functioning Autism, but today he is in a regular classroom. He has friends, does not need any special diets, no more handfuls of supplements, no yeast, and no digestive issues!
I am a Holistic Nutritionist and Spectrum Health Consultant. I have received much of my knowledge from hands-on experience with my own son and endless hours engaged with other parents.
