Maria A.

Maria A. Puttle, OK - Mother of Samuel Samuel is showing many improvements we were hoping for. We can see his speech is better and even eye contact. The hand flapping is less. We have not had a seizure since he came from Arizona.
Thank you so much for all the love and care you guys do for all the people who needed it. My husband said you guys were wonderful.
Please tell Doctor Travis Whitney I watch his youtube videos, they are very educational.

Anna W.

Anna W. – Nashville, TN – Mother of Jackson 4 month follow-up: “”His therapists have been working with him a lot on speech, no new words yet but he is trying really hard!! His pronunciation of letter sounds has improved, I feel like he is really close to speaking! He is still doing great in all other areas like receptive understanding and motor skills.”

Thien D.

Thien D. – Garlan, TX – Father of Max 2 month follow-up: “Yes we are definitely seeing progress and improvements in really all areas since the start of his treatments. I feel that he is able to understand and follow directions better. His eye contact and ability to focus is also better. He is much more affectionate towards other family members. Sleep is also improved. He had a week or so where his sleeping schedule was off, so he wasn’t sleeping as good as before but overall since the start of his treatment his sleep is much improved. In regards to speech and language, he is also saying mama and dada more frequently. Not necessarily actual words but hopefully soon. He does have some bad days but luckily there are much more good days than bad. I am overall very happy with his progress so far and hope that he continues to improve in other areas such as language and speech skills. My wife and I are so fortunate to have found Innate healthcare and thankful for everything that you guys have done for us. We look forward to coming back in June for his 3rd treatment and hope for even more progress. Thank you again!”

Julio F. – Pico Rivera, CA – Father of Adrian & Emma 4 month follow-up: “Everything has been great!
Emma has made leaps and bounds! She’s counting and identifying letters.
Adrian sleep and bowel movements have improved. We notice that he’s been more attentive.

The main change we’ve seen has been his sleeping pattern. He is sleeping 8-9 hours straight without waking up! We want to return this summer.”

Lara F. – Franklin, TN – Mother of Dave 3 month follow-up: “We’ve noticed Dave has been very interested in birthdays recently. He likes to ask new people he engages with when their birthday is. He likes to celebrate birthdays in our family even though it’s not anyones birthday. This is entirely new since stem cell therapy.
His communication and comprehension of what he previously knew is expanding and improving. He is able to put more things together easily.
Overall, we are very impressed with Dave’s response to stem cells and hope to come back out for more treatments during summer break.”

His babbling has improved significantly and and overall energy level has improved. Overall he has been a lot more attentive of his surroundings”

Mary W.

Mary W. – Ypsilanti, MI – Mother of Elliot 1 month follow-up: “We’ve seen some awesome gains in Elliot! He is quicker to engage with us and others, at school as well! He is more readily putting 2-4 words together without as much prompting anymore. Transitions have gotten a lot easier (less screaming) and he follows directions much better! Things like “let’s go take a bath! Go upstairs and find dad!” So wonderful to see. He’s also eating a bigger variety of foods and more willing to try something new, as well as feed himself with utensils. He is engaging with peers more and we see that with Josiah at home too. Lots of playing together! All so great!!”

2 month follow-up: “We had a wonderful holiday season and it was a good time of rest. Elliot is continuing to grow and improve a lot! He is now making 3-5 word sentences on his own, without much prompting. He’s able to ask for everything he needs such as “I want _____” or “help me, mommy.” and etc. We’ve also seen improvements in his engagement with other kids (when we had some friends over). He was able to play near them and also participate in some of the activities without prompting, such as jumping on the bounce house with them (before he’d just get off if someone else got on). We’ve also seen less meltdowns as I said before and that continues to hold true. Yay!! He’s doing great.”

Nusrath R.

Nusrath R. – Bronx, NY – Mother of Habibur 1 month follow-up: “So Habibur has been doing good so far. Ever since the treatment he has about 10 more new words, he is less fearful of the crowd. He tries to communicate and imitate. As term of his appetite, he is willing to try new things. He looks more alert. He is more engaging now. He still doesn’t play with other kids and has his sensory issues..”

1 year follow-up: We’ve been doing treatments for a year now, a little over 1 year. This is his 4th stem cell treatment and the results we see get better after each treatment. Habibur wasn’t talking at all before we started treatment. Now he’s repeating a lot of what we say, says “thank you”, apologizes, says “sorry” if he hits brother, will say “hooray,”, “ha ha so funny”. Initiates conversations by saying hi. Is better playing with other kids and initializing playing with other kids. He lets us brush his teeth which is something new. He learns a lot better, especially from watching his brother more. He’s saying family members names now and addresses them by their titles in our language. He’s still picky with eating but recently he’s started drinking more water instead of only milk, and he’s been eating chicken which is new. I definitely recommend sticking to doing multiple treatments, we’ve seen so many improvements after the treatments.

2 year follow-up: Hello, we are doing well hope you all are doing well as well. Sorry for such a late reply and update. We have been busy with moving last few months. Just finally got settled in. Our son is doing wonderful. He was very excited to move to a new place and start new school. He loves his new school and he’s learning so many new things each day. His speech has gotten so much better since the last treatment. He is very expressive now. He’s able to answer questions and also communicate his needs to us such has his likes and dislike. His stimming is still there but very less compared to before. He is able to read, jump, and run. Things that were difficult for him before and we never thought he would be able to figure out and most of all speak. Hearing him talk was something we as parents never thought we would hear. He addresses us as “mom” and “dad”. He does not get irritated taking pictures now. He would actually say cheese. And also gives his opinion such as agreeing or disagreeing with something. That’s a huge thing. He has improved so much and we hope to see more improvement as time goes by. I would love to thank each and one member of Innate Healthcare Institute for all this wonderful improvement and for the time and effort you all put in. He remembers you all and talk about Arizona and would often go through the pictures and say “remember I go Arizona Dr. Whitney “. We will differently stop by to see you all if we do ever go by Arizona anytime. Thanks for always checking up and keeping in touch. Hope to keep in touch like this.

Kemi A.

Kemi A. – San Jose, CA – Mother of Yohan 2 month follow-up: “Yohan is doing well, he is not as hyper as he was before.A few gains we noticed are:

Almost completely potty trained, with a few accidents here and there
He is playing with his baby brother
He understands better and signs better to communicate.
He points better too

We think he is improving.”

Lindsay A.

Lindsay A. – Leander, TX – Mother of Mason 3 month follow-up: ” Mason’s doing so very great! I’d say his biggest areas of improvement are eye contact and engagement with people. It’s been amazing to witness!

Thank you for always kindly checking in! We love having you all in Mason’s corner!”

5 month follow-up: “Wow! I can’t believe it’s been five months! Mason is still making progress in leaps and bounds! He is mimicking new words each and every day! I’d say he could babble about 2-3 words before treatment, and now can mimic about 25-30! It’s been so crazy to see! He’s also able to identify picture cards and can correctly identify upwards of 30 pictures! He’s still engaging more with his brothers, and is engaging with friends of ours that he’s never acknowledged before! It’s been such a wild ride! Everyday we’re amazed by something he does or says. My favorite thing he’s recently begun is responding to the word, “no!” It’s so amazing! As a child that has little awareness of danger, and often elopes, the ability to say, “no” and have him react appropriately is so great.”

6 month follow-up: “Mason is doing amazing!! Just yesterday Mason grab my dad’s hand and stared right into his eyes for several minutes. They talked, and Mase giggled, and the interaction had my dad in tears. He said, “He’s never acknowledged me before. Wow!”

It was an absolutely beautiful moment and those moments aren’t rare! They’re happening all the time! It’s amazing!

Thank y’all for checking in with us!
We love you guys!”

Elizabeth M.

Elizabeth M. – Columbus, OH – Mother of Felicity 1 month follow-up: “I can’t believe it has been a whole month since our trip. It took Felicity a little while to calm down and get back into the swing of things but that is normal for her. A lot has happened since then. The school she attends built a new building which was ready mid October. She had a week off school and had to prepare to go to a different place. Although her anxiety was high, once she saw “her people” had moved too she transitioned beautifully. They have had no problems and she has adjusted well.

Ever since our autism journey began, I have kept a running list of improvements we have seen. Some of these have come after starting therapy, school, essential oils, meds etc. I notice most of what I tend to write down involves her verbal communication. That has always been a top goal for us since her potential has been there since the beginning. She has come a long way and is using her words more daily. Since our trip, she has started singing more songs from movies and shows she watches. The words are clearer and we can understand what she is singing. Lion King is her current favorite and she has said, “Timone, Pumba, Simba and Hakunna Matata.” She also has acted out the scene where Mufasa dies with her sister using a rock wall we have. She also quoted the line, “Scar, brother, help me!” It is also clear she is comprehending story lines well. This is a movie she has seen for years but she is doing more of this with other movies as well too, including ones she has just begun to watch. She has also started repeating each word in a full sentence if I ask her too. This is definately new. She has started addressing my sister’s and brother in law’s by name and interacting with them more and more. She always ignored the men in our family but has started acknowledging them and joking around.

We have noticed some non verbal things as well. Not long after arriving home, she asked to eat Cheerios which she hasn’t eaten in years. She is very picky, so this was a big deal for her. She has been more proactive about dressing herself and helping us with that. She has also worn a blue shirt, black dress and black shirt since returning home. She usually wears a pink dress or one pink shirt every day. This is a big change and she verbally requested different items. She seems to be sticking with the pink dress for school and the black shirt for home and other outings but it is still a change. She has transitioned quite well on a few occasions where she would have previously melted down. We hope this is something we will see more of.

Her anxiety is still pretty high as we work hard to manage it. I feel it has been a little worse lately, however, I feel when her brain seems more open it seems to be higher. I assume due to her added awareness. We have not tried any of the supplements yet as it’s very hard to get her to try new things. I plan to try the liquid serenity first as I am hoping it will help with the anxiety.”

2 month follow-up: “I’m sorry it had taken a while to respond. I appreciate you checking in. This month has been a little different as she has had a few weeks off of school. That seems to be harder on her being out of routine. Her anxiety was high and we had to work through that but that is our normal for this time of year.

That being said, we had a very successful trip to the Great Wolf Lodge where she was able to engage in water play quite easily. She transitioned from the water to our room well and even wore her mask in the hallways. She didn’t need any incentives this trip and seemed more comfortable. I visually prepared her for the holidays and our Christmas morning at home went very well. We are thankful for these small things.

We saw some friends that we haven’t seen since summer and they commented that they could see a difference in Felicity’s speech as well as her comprehension. There is more back and forth banter. We also received a wonderful report from her speech therapist as she has met all of her goals for the second quarter. I will include pictures of that. Her verbal communication is still probably the top improvement we have seen. One that is greatly welcomed.

We are expecting baby #4 in May and Felicity seems to fully understand and is very excited about the baby. Both her teacher and her therapist told us that she always points out “May and baby” when they go through the months. She knows when it will arrive. She also drew a picture

of me with a face on my stomach. It is so refreshing to see her understand and be excited about the new addition. Her writing seems to have improved as well.”

3 month follow-up: “Overall Felicity is doing well. It is the time of year where she will be evaluated and get a new IEP in place for next year. As of now, she has met or is close to meeting ALL of her goals for the year. We are very happy with her progress. Her verbal development has still been her most improved area. She now gives us hugs and says “I love you” just because, no prompts. It has been so nice to see her grow.”

1 year follow-up: “Felicity has grown so much over the past year. Especially with her language and developing relationships with other people. Prior to starting treatments she had a few words. She was starting to communicate basic needs, saying “mom” and “dad”.
Since treatments she’s addressing more immediate family, like aunts, uncles, grandparents by names. More comfortable with relationships, such as wanting to be around everyone instead of only being able to socialize with a few people in her immediate family. She wants to interact with everyone instead of only a handful of people. Now other family and friends can understand her and have better conversations. Sometimes we still need some clarification, but really nice to be able to communicate more with her. The most interesting thing was I stopped making a list of new words since new words became less significant cause she had so many more. Her teacher of two years sent us a great letter of how well she’s doing in class with language, behavior, moving forward in class. Her teacher said I think she is doing fantastic!! She is improving so much and coming out of her shell daily!!” We’re still working on her anxiety issues but they’ve improved. Her sleeping is still great as well. She wakes up early occasionally but nowhere near what it used to be. We’re really happy with everything and the way she’s developed since starting stem cell treatments.”

Jordan N.

Jordan N. – Lodi, NJ – Mother of Kellen 2 month follow-up: “It’s been 2 months since our first treatment My son said his first word! He said “three.” his eye contact is still improving and his receptive language seems to be improving as well. He’s interested and playing with toys properly. His ABA therapist has told me she notices a difference in him and he is completing goals quicker in therapy as well. He notices cars driving by, birds flying, and other people around him. We are loving the improvements so far! ”

3 month follow-up: “Kellen is still doing great! He’s playing with his sister more, following simple directions better, still doing great in therapy, and his awareness keeps getting better and better. His receptive language also seems to be getting better!”

4 month follow-up: “Kellen is great! No more new words but he’s seeming to try to sign! Therapies have been going great and he’s learning so many new things. Completing activities, following directions…it’s been amazing! Eye contact seems to not be an issue anymore. We are so happy.”

6 month follow-up: “Kellen has been great! Therapies have been going great and he will be starting his Special Ed preschool in a couple months. His eye contact is still improving, responding to his name is almost 100% of the time, and his awareness for things and people has increased. We are still very happy with his progress and the stem cells!

We can’t wait for the next appointment in March!”

Yasmin

Yasmin – Nashville, TN – Mother of Child with Autism Maysa is doing amazing, so great, since our last stem cell treatment! Immediately after, her sleep quality improved. She’s been doing so amazing since treatments. No more text messages from her school about outbursts and misbehaving. She has good days or great days.

We haven’t needed to give her melatonin once since treatments. Before we were giving her melatonin 2-3 times a night, once for her to fall asleep and then we would giver more once she woke up so she would stay asleep. Now she sometimes wakes up at 4am and we tell her to go back to sleep and she does it. Before she’d wake up and jump on the bed, go through the house and turn lights on, and basically just be awake.

Maysa always had a chronic runny nose. Ever since treatment she hasn’t had a runny nose. Not getting allergies or colds like she used to. She’s fine the entire day of school and going to her clinic afterwards. She used to have a lot of stimming with any kind of probiotic product or food. She can now take the probiotics without having a bad reaction, and she can eat fermented foods.

She’s far more calmer, present. Not always running around looking for something to do. She’s been engaging in new activities. Never wanted to drive the battery powered car but after getting back she wanted to play and drive in the toy battery car. Her coordination has improved so much. Listening and learning instructions on how to drive, she now knows how to press the pedal and steer, she’s understanding so much better. It’s little things we see in her. We can’t thank Dr. Whitney enough for everything he has done! We’re excited come back in late Nov or early Dec and continue treatments.

Meskerem A

Meskerem A. – Burtonsville, MD – Mother of Child with Autism We have seen huge improvements in Ermias since coming back from stem cell treatments in Arizona, especially with eye contact and his listening. His ABA therapists say he’s improved so much that they change and update his lessons every two weeks now because of how well he’s doing in therapy, before he would make very little progress. His digestion has improved so much, we no longer give him enzymes. When we go to the store we no longer need to worry about him. He doesn’t run off or misbehave. No tantrums. He used to throw tantrums when leaving the store or the park. Now he just grabs my hand and leaves when I tell him it’s time to go. He follows every direction we tell him. Before the treatment he only could identify 2 pictures and now he’s identifying 20 pictures. He’s so smart. His ABA therapists have been amazed at his improvements. We haven’t seen this much progress after working with other therapists and biomedical doctors. It’s been an absolute miracle and we thank you so much. We’re looking forward to coming back for our next treatments in a few months.

Trish M.

Trish M. – Los Angelas, CA – Mother of Child with Autism I’m so happy we went to get treatment from Dr Whitney. We’ve seen gains we were not expecting such as better motor skills. She had more confidence in walking and running. London is practicing her annunciation and has me repeat words she hears. Francisco has noticed more energy and London is more curious to world around her.

4-month follow-up: “Kellen is great! No more new words but he’s seeming to try to sign! Therapies have been going great and he’s learning so many new things. Completing activities, following directions…it’s been amazing! Eye contact seems to not be an issue anymore. We are so happy.”

6-month follow-up: “Kellen has been great! Therapies have been going great and he will be starting his Special Ed preschool in a couple months. His eye contact is still improving, responding to his name is almost 100% of the time, and his awareness for things and people has increased. We are still very happy with his progress and the stem cells!

We can’t wait for the next appointment in March!”

A.A. / Richmond, TX / Son with Autism Our son has been doing great. We have seen a lot of gains since the stem cell treatment. He has been trying a lot to vocalize words and sing along when his favorite shows are on tv or on his Ipad. When he is singing, his words are very close to the words being sung by the characters on tv. His behavior has also changed a whole lot. He notices his baby sister and tries to hold her. Previously, he would never acknowledge her. He is also alot calmer when playing on his ipad. We are not having as much tantrums as we used to. The only weird behavior we seem to notice lately is his obsession with washing his hands. He seems to always want to go to the sink and wash his hands. We cant seem to figure out if he is intrigued by the water or the soap.. but anyways, we try to limit the number of times he does that. Looking forward to the next treatment in December

N.C. / Bronx, NY / Son with Autism My son has been doing good so far. Ever since the treatment he has about 10 more new words, he is less fearful of the crowds. He tries to communicate and imitate. As for his appetite he is willing to try new things. He looks more alert. He is more engaging now. He still doesn’t play with other kids and has his sensory issues. Looking forward to the next treatment.
