Grandmother Josephine Mandamin began her walk in Puget Sound on April 9, 2011 with a ceremony hosted by Skokomish nation. We followed her for five days as she, Shelley, Sylvia and Tina walked through a temperate rain forest to get to their first mountain pass. On the way to the pass she was assisted by Lisa and her daughter Dark Feather with Jesse assisting with the staff and Joanne carrying the pale. I am sure there were others whose names I can't remember. This is the first installment of Waterwalk 2011. This fall on APTN you can see the full journey.
Autism is best described as a complex biomedical disorder. Upon a more careful examination of children diagnosed with autism, one finds evidence of detoxification impairment, immune dysregulation, inflammatory disease, neuro-toxicity, mitochondrial, metabolic, and gastrointestinal disorders, to name a few. Biomarkers can increase patient compliance with treatment and enable the selection of optimal therapy and reduce trial-and-error prescribing for physicians.
