Candia has done an excellent job of bringing to our awareness (and explaining) the wide variety of solutions that are available to us in fields ranging from nutrition to alternative healing practices that play a vital role in nurturing body-mind-spirit wellness. - Jeanette Castelli, M.S.

When I, myself, was desperately searching for ways to detoxify one of my own sons, I would have considered a work like this to be a Godsend. Now that blessing has arrived. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all parents and educators.” - Mellisa Dormoy, Parent and founder of ShambalaKids 


I’m especially impressed with Candia’s highly compassionate and loving approach to parenting kids who are on (or near) the spectrum the “eco-intelligent” way. I wish I’d had a copy of Candia’s Eco-Intelligent Remedies for Autism Spectrum book when my son, who has Asperger’s syndrome, was little. It would have been a welcome road map on his journey to adulthood. Some of the natural remedies she mentions I did end up finding on my own, and many have proven themselves very effective. But this little volume is far more comprehensive than I would ever have dreamed for its size and contains quite a few intriguing ideas I’ve never come across before – some that I can’t wait to suggest to my son even now that he's nearly grown! Her Autism course (as a whole) is affirming and empowering – I’d recommend it to anyone who is blessed with a child on the spectrum, or indeed any high-need child. - Anne Michelsen, Parent, Eco Advocate, and Green Business Writer
