Autism: One Man’s Journey is a documentary and memoir about Scott Michael Klumb, a local film maker diagnosed with autism at age 23. Scott takes viewers on a journey, wanting to bring awareness to the issues related to late diagnosis; and not understanding what was “wrong” with him for most of his life. This is a story of hardship, perseverance, and hope. It is a story of inspiration including Scott’s personal interview with Dr. Temple Grandin, one of the world’s most accomplished and well-known adults with autism.
Scott filmed, edited and produced this inspiring autobiographical film with the hope to reassure late diagnosed autistics that they are not alone, there is support for them too, and that it is possible to connect with people who care.
Autism: One Man’s Journey proves that an autistic person can hone their strengths and abilities to create a meaningful life and career. It can be hard, but Scott wants to inspire others and let them know that things do get better. All things are possible.

Everyone is afraid of the next pandemic. And we should be.
We need to care for ourselves nutritionally to make sure our body is in the best shape to ward off any virus. Just as a doctor has found that the best way to avoid sepsis is using vitamin C in an IV in the ER (a procedure he is advocating to hospitals), the same can be said for many organisms.
Here is an article where this medical doctor encourages the use of vitamin C for avoiding the corona virus. It is inexpensive, it is easy, and it is powerful. Let’s do what we can do, and we can do this. Spread the message.
Last week I talked about using ozone, at home, to keep you healthy. I have a unit at my house and am setting aside time that you can come over and see and possibly experience an ozone treatment. I will give you 3 dates and times. Please call or text (303-929-4320) to make a reservation for the time that works for you. When you make the reservation, I will give you driving instructions. I am basically at the intersection of Quincy and Sheridan. And yes, you can bring a friend.
February 6, 1-3 pm.
March 1, 1-3 pm.
March 31, 1-3 pm.
As long as people are interested, I will make future dates available. Put this on your schedule so you won’t forget. Even if you don’t want to purchase one, it will add to your knowledge base of what is out there if you need it in the future or someone you know needs it.
In case you didn’t see last week’s health tip, read this.
And remember, Good Health is Priceless!
From the moment we are born, we all have an expiration date. We just don’t know when it is. Most of my patients agree that it isn’t so important how long we live, but our quality of life while we are here.
This year I’m dedicated to teaching others the things they can do at home to help their health. Why? Properly prescribed and properly taken prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death in the US.
Do everything you can for yourself before running to medications! You know that I treat sick people all of the time. How do I stay well? This year, I invite you to my house to see one of the ways I stay healthy. I will have certain days and times that you are invited. They will be different days and times so you can find one that works for you.
But I won’t hold you in suspense. This is what I use. I first started using it when I was diagnosed with macular degeneration. I researched and found that Dr. Rowen had used this to stop macular degeneration’s progression. To my surprise, not only did it help my eyes, but I haven’t been sick (except food poisoning) since I started. And I noticed many of the aches and pains of older age, simply were not there anymore.
I don’t mean I never hurt. I sprained my ankle. In fact, I broke my ankle. Yes, it hurt. My experience was the aches and pains of getting up in the morning, that kind of thing, were gone. My experience is that people with a lower immune system can really benefit.
Does that mean I think everyone needs it? I think everyone needs to decide for themselves. I’m giving you the opportunity to come to my house, see my set up, and experience a treatment if you choose.
Next week, I will have days and times that will work for me and how to make a reservation.
Not long ago I gave a talk at a club meeting. In the audience was Cheryl Ilov. I was impressed as she practices martial arts. She has her black belt! She has written a book about staying fit after 50. By the looks of her, she could definitely educate us on being fit as we grow older.
She also has a website called, The FemiNinja Project which is dedicated to restoring human dignity and helping us unleash our personal power. That sounds good to me!
Cheryl asked me to be on her podcast. In this podcast, I talk about healing from childhood loss. I lost both my mother and father one night when I was 19 months old. My Grandparents stepped in and became parents to my sister and me and gave us a good life on the farm in West Texas. But there was a great big elephant in our living room. We couldn’t talk about the death of my parents! We didn’t have any help. I talk with Cheryl in this podcast about healing from my childhood loss. Please pass this along to those it will help. One in nine children lose a parent when they are a child. Shocking isn’t it?
Cheryl is the lovely woman on the right in this photo and you can see her book, “Forever Fit and Flexible.” Just look at her! We all want to look like that!
Do you have itchy eyelids? Do you or your children often have eyelid irritations like styes? Sometimes our eyelids are puffy or feel crusty. Women, do you feel like your eye make-up irritates your eyelids? (if it does, bring your make-up to me and I will test it.)
Whether they are irritations, allergies or infections, our eyelids need a little love. This product will help with these issues. In fact, if you use these tissues, you might say goodbye to those issues.
The product is an eye wipe that uses tee tree oil and coconut oil. It feels good. And no, it doesn’t burn. Even your children will like it.
If your child comes home with pink eye or a stye or you feel your eyelid is irritated from your makeup, before you go to bed, use this wipe. If you need to, you can use it everyday. Ahhh…relief! Please, let me know how you like this product.
Stay tuned to my health tips in 2020. I am going to introduce you to therapies you can do at home or in someone’s office. At this point in time, as much as possible, it is important for you to do for yourself as much as you can. Why? There are problems in health care. Problems with medications. If you had an alternative that you could use in your own home, would you be interested in pursuing it?
You may wonder how I stay healthy when I treat people who are sick all the time. I do self-care to keep me from getting sick and I am going to share that with you in 2020. I feel like staying healthy is a big job these days. And it is one of our most important jobs because unless we are healthy, it is hard to enjoy your life.
So come on this ride with me and I will show you how to stay well in a sick world. Invite your friends. Welcome aboard.
Merry Christmas and I’ll see you in 2020!! Happy New Year!
If you are a parent, it is only natural to notice the qualities and characteristics of your children. You want to support positive characteristics and diminish the negative ones. But do you know which characteristics are negative?
I read an article about stubborn children. Being stubborn is a positive sign according to this article. A stubborn child may be more difficult to teach, but according to this article, it is a positive sign in terms of being successful in life.
I’m not sure their definition of stubborn is the same as mine. They did say that breaking rules and being defiant with parents was a good predictor of having a higher income as an adult. See what you think.
The holidays have arrived. They are so much fun, but everyone talks about the weight gain. Hey, it is fun to celebrate with our friends and family. Right? After all it is Christmas!
I don’t want people to feel guilty about having treats at this special time of year, but what is your plan to discard the few pounds you might gain?
Maybe you aren’t pulled by food. I know I am. It looks so good. You know what I am talking about. And most of the time it tastes good too. I end up eating more than I should.
Intermittent fasting is not new. You probably know all about it. But if you don’t, look on youtube for just the right person for you to learn from, I mean, of course, besides me.
Most people can fast. There are so many ways to do intermittent fasting, there is probably a perfect way for you. You can make a window of 5 hours a day where you eat, you can eat dinner tonight, and not eat again until tomorrow night. Listen to what others say about it to find the perfect way to lose those few pounds you might gain over the holiday. And yes, you can wait until January to start. The doctor I was listening to tonight said he had gained some weight and started fasting at lunch and breakfast. After a few days, he got on the scale and found, yes, he had lost a couple of pounds. He said he kept it up until he had lost the 20 pounds he had “found” over the previous few years. Most people are surprised how easy it is to do. Well, not easy, but doable. Of course, there are some people who shouldn’t fast. If you have questions, you can always call or text me. Enjoy your holidays and consider intermittent fasting now or after the holidays if you add a few pounds.
My patients and friends: Happy Thanksgiving.
When my great-niece was a little girl, I was at their house and she was setting the table for dinner. She said, “Let’s do that thing where we go around and say what we are grateful for.”
Isn’t that a great idea to do every day? We get in a hurry and are running from one thing to another. But we can take a moment before eating and teach the children, as well as ourselves, to be thankful for our lives and the love in it.
I love my family, patients and friends. I consider all of you my family. And this Thanksgiving, know I am thinking of you and feeling grateful that you share your life with me!
