If you’ve ever visited our site, you certainly know Kristian, an autistic young man from Trbovlje in Slovenia who, thanks to his amazing mother Katja, after many years of struggles and incredible sacrifice, managed to reverse the course of his illness and went from being “permanently incapable” to being out of the autistic spectrum. His amazing story has been featured in the media many times.
Kristian and his family have come a long way since Kristian was diagnosed with a severe form of autism in kindergarten. He has been on a strict diet for 15 years, he has undergone stem cell surgery, but unfortunately the improvements have not been permanent because of the toxins in his body. After the introduction of the RENS H protocol two more stem cell surgeries were performed and thanks to detoxification this time the progress was permanent as RENS cleansed from his body aluminium and other heavy metals that were destroying his cells. The progress has been incredible and is bordering on a miracle that some parts of official medicine has not (yet) been able to fully accept.
How is Kristian today?
The video says more than words and pictures together so we invite you to watch the video (in Slovenian) at the bottom of this article. During a conversation between Igor Gošte and Kristian’s mother Katja Kristian is sitting quietly at the table and doing different things.
The whole conversation is over an hour long and here is a short summary.
Katja says that by the age of 1 Kristian was developing normally and was already uttering syllables. However, after receiving the measles, rubella and mumps vaccine his abilities began to decline. He stopped talking, he started howling like a wolf, making strange noises, there was no more eye contact, he stopped sleeping and eating, he didn’t play with toys anymore, he was spinning in a circle, he was banging his head at the wall, throwing himself on the floor etc. He was soothed by running water, so they often had a flood in the apartment, as he regularly opened taps in the kitchen and bathroom.
When they went to visit his grandmother she had to lock the doors to all the rooms, otherwise he would throw everything on the floor. The doctors told them that he was still small and that he would develop in the future, but they need to devote more time to him and to enrol him in kindergarten because he is too spoiled. Nothing changed when he started going to kindergarten, because Kristian of course was not spoiled – he had a severe form of autism.

All the ensuing difficulties led to a divorce with her husband who left and Katja was left alone with two children. It was very very difficult.
How the health system and other people responded to an autistic child
In the interview Mr. Gošte and Kristian’s mother talk about how other people reacted to their situation. Katja said that the responses varied a lot, from very positive to extremely negative – they lived in a communal apartment and one of the neighbours sued her for the noise caused by the hyperactive child in the apartment and he also came to her door one day with an axe in his hand and demanded peace in the apartment. As a result her older son no longer dared to leave the apartment by himself, so she had to ask another neighbour to accompany him to school every day because Kristian could not be left alone at home.
Another painful topic is the attitude of the health system to Kristian and his situation. Katja specifically thanked the Paediatric Clinic in Ljubljana for monitoring, assisting and confirming the success of the treatment they are implementing. On the other hand, health professionals often simply attribute the progress to the fact that Kristian is now an adult. People who know how hard they have worked to get such fantastic results are of course deeply offended by such statements.
Reimbursement of the costs from the health insurance company is another nightmare. Despite the fact that Kristian’s doctor at the Paediatric Clinic in Ljubljana records visible progress of the treatment and signs a claim for reimbursement of medical expenses, the insurance company refuses to pay the costs. Because Katja knows that nothing can be achieved without stubbornness, she passed the case to the social court. There was the first hearing after three years and the case will certainly be dragged on for a long time.
Katja repeats that Kristian today is out of the autism spectrum according to the ADOS scale – a miracle which happened after his third stem cell operation and use of RENS H.
Developmental setback is of course present, also speech is not perfect, all of which is understandable given that he missed more than 10 years of development time. However, Kristian’s speech is improving and he also likes to sing.
Katja goes on to say that it was also very difficult for her first son, Alex, who of course could not understand what was going on when he was younger and he often felt neglected. Today he is 20 years old. He understands things and helps his family in every way he can.
What were the hardest experiences they had to endure?
When asked if she could have imagined ten years ago that Kristian could ever sit still for as long as an hour, the way he did during the interview, she said no way. In those days they could not go anywhere, not even to the doctor. Kristian had to be put to sleep if he needed a dentist. And the dentist did not repair his teeth, he simply pulled them out. Today Kristian goes to the dentist willingly. He gets his teeth repaired with a filling and he sits quietly with his mouth open. Because in the past she had to watch over Kristian all the time, she couldn’t even drink a cup of coffee in peace. They couldn’t go out for pizza or lunch, they couldn’t go to the park, and they couldn’t even think of going on a vacation.
Kristian had repeatedly injured himself before he started taking RENS, once injuring his head when he rammed into the wall. Another time he opened a window and was throwing things out of the apartment. Katja points out two of the most difficult moments for her: while she was driving, he smashed the windshield in the car with his feet. Because he would run away if she stopped, she had to drive home with a smashed windshield. The second equally horrible experience was when he banged his head at the glass door and cut his nose. It was really hard in those days.
Now he did not have a major outburst for several years and they are very grateful for that.
Katja goes on to say that Kristian is not the only child who got better by the therapy – there is an ever-growing number of successful cases.
At the very end of the interview Kristian also solved a Rubik’s Cube and played a Beethoven’s song For Elisa on the piano.

Will Kristian ever be able to live on his own?
Due to the tremendous success and progress made it is possible to ask out loud a question, which was science fiction a few years ago – will Kristian ever be able to live on his own?
Katja replies that no one can give an answer at this point. However, given all they endured in the past and the progress they made, she no longer sets any limits to what is possible.
