Top doctors sharing healing modalities
Network with Doctors, Scientists, Parents and Many others at the AHS
VIP members will have access to the viewing of Protocol 7
Autism Health Summit is a parent-driven two-day conference committed to addressing all aspects of autism, with presentations covering a wide range of topics related to healing the underlying conditions associated with autism and other neurological disorders. AHS assists parents who seek answers to concerns about their child’s diagnosis, including options for alternative medicine, nutrition, schooling, therapies, and more. Because there is no medical cure for autism, many parents turn to biomedical treatments and therapies. Most of these treatments are low-risk, and some have the potential to be life-changing. AHS can connect you with a wide range of resources, such as doctors, specialists, medical professionals, and other parents who have successfully experienced improvements in their children’s symptoms.

From her doctoral thesis, which changed the treatment of HIV-AIDS, saving the lives of millions, including basketball great Magic Johnson, to her spectacular discovery of a new family of human retroviruses, and her latest research which points to a new golden age of health, Dr. Mikovits has always been on the leading edge of science.
Dr. Mikovits has seen the best and worst of science. When she was part of the research community that turned HIV-AIDS from a fatal disease into a manageable one, she saw science at its best. But when her investigations questioned whether the use of animal tissue in medical research were unleashing devastating plagues of chronic diseases, such as autism and chronic fatigue syndrome, she saw science at its worst. If her suspicions are correct, we are looking at a complete realignment of scientific practices, including how we study and treat human disease.
