He’s Not Autistic But…

a book by Tenna Merchent


Summary of He’s Not Autistic But…
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 150 children is born with autism. Tenna Merchent is all too familiar with this frightening statistic as she feared her own son might suffer from this devastating disorder.

When her son was born, he seemed healthy. But by the time he was six weeks old, he cried for hours each evening if he wasn’t constantly nursed. As the months went on, Clay frequently was seriously ill. By the time he was two years old, he could say only a few words, would bang his head for no apparent reason, often walked on his toes, was extremely allergic to many things, constantly sick, and suffered from severe nose and chest congestion. He had systemic yeast, was terrified by sudden noises, wouldn’t sleep for more than two hours straight, and was unhappy most of the time. All of his symptoms pointed to autism. And to make matters worse, Merchent herself became seriously ill.

This book is the moving story of Merchent’s remarkable persistence and relentless search for answers and the cure for her son’s illness. The book describes her painful journey through traditional medicine, then the hopeful move to alternative care. The miracles begin when she finally discovers a master herbalist who reveals to her the primary cause of their illnesses: aluminum. The simplicity of fully curing both herself and her son is astounding, and she illustrates the art of releasing in detail. Also included is priceless list of remedies for common ailments.

"There are countless mothers and fathers out there who can benefit directly from what this struggle for better health teaches. In the place of despair, frustration, grief and the torment in the pit of illness this work provides hope and a formula for better health for many."
