The Parent’s Roadmap to Autism

Holistic and functional medicine nurse practitioner, Jen Ciszewski, FNP, has a great conversation with Dr. Emily Gutierrez on the Inspire Health by Jen podcast.

Did you know that 1 in 36 children are diagnosed with autism today? The mainstream medical approach includes therapy and antipsychotic medications, which can help control the symptoms of autism, but often do not include an evaluation or treatment approach for addressing potential underlying causes. Parents are frequently left without a plan on how to help their child thrive, and can feel hopeless, and overwhelmed on what the future holds.

In this episode, Dr. Gutierrez is paving the way for parents to understand how their child may have arrived at an autism diagnosis and where they can take their child from there on the road of healing. Dr. Gutierrez blends the best of both worlds as an allopathic doctor of nursing practice and certified clinician in the holistic and functional medicine world. If your child has signs or symptoms of neurodevelopmental disorders (such as autism, delayed speech, or not meeting developmental milestones) and you want more than the typical western medicine lackluster approach, this is the episode for you!
