In the leading Slovenian family magazine Zarja there was an article published on November 14th 2017 about an incredible achievement of a 16-year old Kristian and his mother Katja. At the age of three Kristian received a diagnose of severe form of autism, he was labelled as “permanently incapable” with the explanation that there is no treatment for his disease. Nevertheless she never gave up and thanks to a combination of different approaches, among which RENS H proved as being the key factor, Kristian today is no longer in the autism spectrum. The story is unbelievable and gives hope to all those who are struggling every day with similar problems: things actually can get better.
A short personal comment of the Katja’s and Kristian’s story – if Katja did not search for a solution herself and broke down several walls with only her unbreakable will, nothing would have happened. The moral of the story is sad and cruel but realistic and eye-opening. To make a breakthrough and make things better we must not wait on the system and institutions to do something for us – we need to be proactive and search for solutions also outside of official boundaries (the insurance company did not reimburse the cost of treatment even though the results are perfectly clear and proved by tests). And this is how we have to understand her words: “There are no limits anymore”. A deep bow and respect to you, Mrs Katja.
Below is a summary of the article, scans from the Zarja Magazine are also attached.
Kristian is no longer autistic
Katja Šergan Božič, mother of a boy Kristian, who was diagnosed with severe autism at the age of three, shared in an interview that Kristian was labelled as “permanently incapable” with the explanation that there is no treatment for this disease. Nevertheless, she never surrendered and constantly sought ways to improve her son’s condition. She started with special diets and three stem cell surgeries for which donor funds were collected – the money was also collected by Kristian himself with his exhibitions of incredible origami. Last year they also added a therapy for removing aluminum and other heavy metals from the body with a special detoxifying preparation RENS H (made from extracts of several types of algae) – and after a month the results were surprising. While the results of Kristian tests for autism last year showed a severe form of autism, the July tests were astounding – a sixteen year old is out of the autistic spectrum, so he is no longer autistic!
Kristian was developing as a completely healthy child in the first year. According to Katja he began to noticeably fall behind after the compulsory vaccination for MMR (measles, mumps, rubella). He stopped saying the syllables he had already known, he began to refuse food, became restless and hyperactive, stopped responding to his name, he avoided eye contact, began to bump his head in the wall, throw himself on the ground, eat plaster from the walls, he screamed in strange voices, he shouted, he did not sleep at night. Because of all this they had to take him out of the kindergarten and doctors diagnosed him with the most severe form of autism.
His mother Katja never gave up, she started to look for solutions. More than 10 years ago the first progress was made with a special diet without gluten, casein, soy and sugar. This was followed by the treatment of intestinal infections and detoxification of the organism, as test of his hair and faeces also showed increased concentration of heavy metals, mainly mercury and aluminum.
Stem Cell Surgeries
The next step was the stem cell surgeries by the clinic in Vienna. Katja says that many autistic people had been treated at the clinic and they have made progress after the procedure. Doctor who was treating Kristian thought that he had good options, but he warned her that progress would not be permanent unless aluminium is removed from his brain cavity and body. After the first stem cell treatment in the spring of 2016, the Kristian’s situation improved, the boy started speaking, he repeated the sentences, he was calm, he was able to find things he was interested in on the computer, he started to play the piano and made beautiful and very complex origami. His blood tests after the procedure showed that he still had aluminum in his body, destroying his healthy and injected stem cells, so the procedure had to be repeated and the aluminum removed. “Aluminum was stored deep inside the cells and brain and was causing damage. Therefore, an effective detoxification procedure had to be found.” With the help of Igor Gošte, the editor of ETV (Mr. Dernovsek was a guest in the studio), who helped raise donor funds (one stem cell costs 14,000 euros), she learned about Zoran Dernovšek, Slovenian innovator with RENS H (Rapid Effect Natural Supplement), an effective detoxification protocol classified as a dietary supplement, made from extracts of several types of algae.
Detoxification with RENS H
Katja says that she decided to use RENS H when the Australian clinic where Kristian is treated approved of the method. They have their own doctor there, who prescribes them which test need to be carried out and which dietary supplements Kristian should take based on these tests. At the same time the use of RENS H was approved of at the Austrian clinic where Kristian had a surgery for the second time last July.
They started with RENS H therapy in September 2016 and it proved to be effective very soon. “We made tests on a monthly basis and the results showed very effective removal of aluminum and other toxic metals from the brain.” The improvement was also rapid in Kristian’s development. “He started to speak in full sentences just one month after we started the RENS H therapy. Before he mostly used to repeat them – If you asked him something, he repeated the question. We need to know that his speech is still not normal. At the age of fifteen he just started to learn to speak well. At the same time he started to understand more and more things and became more independent. For example, he made popcorn, which was also something quite surprising! ”
At the same time they began to lower and gradually completely stopped using the officially prescribed drug for ADHD Strattera. “When we the withdrawal effects stopped – the emotional outbursts that we relieved with sodium ascorbate (another discovery of the inventor Zoran Dernovšek) or base vitamin C from sodium bicarbonate and lemon juice – his condition was even better.” All this time they still collected donations. “Given that the boy had been already 15 years old and had severe form autism, we decided to do the third stem cells surgery for faster progress in July 2017. With tests we came to a conclusion that the levels of aluminum and other heavy metals in his body is approaching normal. But that does not mean that Kristian will now be on the same level as other healthy 15-year-old boys, because he had a huge development gap due to autism, which we must now make up for. But he is very keen to work and we are really moving forward. ”
No longer in the Autism spectrum
After another operation last year ADOS-2 test, which is used to diagnose the autism spectrum, was made. “Kristian received a score of 8 on a diagnostic scale, which still represents a severe form of autism (10 applies to the most severe level). This year in July, before the third operation, this test was repeated and with level 3 Kristian is now out of the autism spectrum, “said Katja with tears of pride and triumph in her eyes.
Despite the undisputed success the insurance company will not reimburse the cost of stem cell surgeries. They explained that treatment abroad is not expected to cure, improve or prevent further deterioration of Kristian’s health. Despite her appeal and enclosed results, the application was rejected again, although the surgery in combination with detoxification with RENS H and other things that they used, yielded exceptional results.
Problems with money do not end with surgeries. Diet food for Kristian is much more expensive than other foods. Also additional examinations and test that they are having need to be paid for and it is hard for Katja’s family to afford them. Katja devoted her life to searching and finding ways for her son’s cure. She was not able to have a regular job because she had to take care of him. Another problem is the extreme moisture in their apartment which the Municipality has fixed several times, but there is no permanent solution for this problem. Moisture and mould have already started to affect her health (she has been suffering from asthma for four years now), and she is scared for the health of both of her sons, Kristian and two years older Alexander, who attends high school and is always there to help his mother and brother.
There are no more limits
But as far as Kristian is concerned, she let go of all limits. “Given everything we’ve experienced, everything is possible. Kristian played a long piano composition last year for Christmas holidays in front of the Zagorje Municipality and was invited to several other events. I am very proud of everything he achieved with his perseverance. With surgeries, diet and detoxification we only created conditions for him, everything else he achieved himself. Long ago he exceeded all of my expectations. We can now go to the dentist without problems – before he had to be anaesthetized so that his teeth could be repaired. Now we can also go to a hairdresser, to a shop, to family trips, which was previously literally impossible. Previously everything was automatic, but now we know that he understands. He gets involved in a conversation, follows it and adds his comments, this is really exceptional progress! Before he expressed his needs, now he expresses his desires, he knows precisely when it’s his birthday, and he starts reminding me about it long before. He never forgets about the pocket money he gets every eleventh in a month, “said Katja with a smile. “All this has impact on the quality of our family life, which is a great happiness for all of us,” she said with a glow.
During the journalist’s visit at their home Kristian also engaged in a conversation, he was expressing emotions and showing what he can do. In less than three minutes he assembled a Rubik’s cube, displayed magic tricks, made beautiful origami and so on.
Katya concluded the interview with these words: “I’m a little tired, my health is a bit worse than it was, but everything that we have achieved gives me incredible energy and will for the future! Because I know very well how hard it can be for families who have autistic children it is important for them to see that there is hope, so I’m fighting and doing my best also for everyone else!”
