“Our son Steven is a 15-year-old boy with severe autism, and with Pure Body we have observed increased calmness in his behavior and clarity in his thoughts. For the first time he is making eye contact! We recently added Pure Body Extra Strength, and noticed new improvements!
Now Steven is settling down and getting to sleep by 8 p.m. each night, giving us a restful evening, and he now sleeps for 9 to 10 hours at night, instead of his usual 1:30 to 4:30 a.m. start!
Steven also has more spatial awareness and is noticing the positioning of objects for the first time. He is engaging in corrective measures on a daily basis now.
For example, we keep a 32 oz. bottle of liquid soap in our shower. The other day, the bottle was turned so the label was not facing toward Steven. He noticed this and turned the bottle so the label faced him directly!
We also keep a bottle of distilled vinegar on our windowsill, which we use to disinfect counter tops and appliances. The bottle was sitting on top of the dryer when Steven noticed it there and returned it to the windowsill where it is always kept.
Steven has previously tried to put his sneakers on, but in the past has only succeeded in getting the ball of his foot into the sneaker, with his heel out of the shoe, as he proceeded to walk on his toes. (Yes, we have a tip-toe walker in our home.)
So just the other day, we decided to test his awareness. We placed his shoes on top of his armoire. We soon found Steven had discovered them and he actually placed them on his feet correctly with his entire foot inside the shoe!
For Steven and for us, these are monumental changes! We are amazed and delighted with his new eye contact, gentleness, calmness and affection. What a blessing this has been!”
