Healthy Hemp and Autism The latest estimate of autism prevalence—1 in 68—is up 30 percent from the 1 in 88 rate reported in 2008, and more than double the 1 in 150 rate in 2000. In fact, the trend has been steeply upward since the early 1990s, not only in the U.S. but globally. *www.scientificamerican.com Could all-natural Hemp Extracts supplements be something these families could really benefit from? You be the judge. We receive many reviews from customers that have family members with autism disorders and they all have the highest of hopes! In fact, we would love to introduce you to our very own Kristen Lux and her son, Jackson! Kristen has been a part of the Healthy Hemp team for a little over 5 months now, and she quickly witnessed how the hemp extract products were giving her son a better quality of life! Jackson’s mom, Kristen, is happy to report that her son is finding relief thanks to Healthy Hemp. But, it wasn’t always that way. When he was 3, Jackson was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). His family saw other kids developing and hitting the usual milestones while Jackson was non-verbal. Before trying hemp extracts, his family struggled to coach 5 words out of him a day. He was anxious and had regular meltdowns; including self-harming behaviors and screaming from sensory overload. Kristen began researching ways to help Jackson cope. “The more research I did, the more I kept running into information on the benefits of hemp extracts. The Charlotte’s Web brand in particular.” She says Healthy Hemp was full of useful information and pointed her to resources like The Realm of Caring where she got proper dosing information. Now, Jackson is thriving! Kristen says, “His growth in the past 5 months has been so dramatic it is incredible. Jackson’s doctors and therapists are all amazed with the benefits of Charlotte’s Web and how well it is working for us!” Kristen encourages other families to research hemp extracts and understand how it they might benefit you, or someone you know. She says, “Don’t be afraid to asking all the questions that are running through your head about it! Better understanding was the first huge step for me.” Healthy Hemp is thrilled to see this little guy doing so well!
