Lyme Disease & Autism
Being told you or a family member have late stage chronic disease including Lyme Disease or Autism can be overwhelming. I can relate at a personal level since my son has been through spectrum issues along with Lyme disease and 11 coinfections – all late stage - further complicated with methylation issues and biotoxin illness. He is fully recovered and in a premed high school program but it was a long and arduous journey.
Finding the right clinician can be daunting, and patients will often feel helpless and afraid in this process. On the other hand, patients who have undergone successful transition and recovery with Natural and Holistic medicine are often the most grateful of all patients. Sometimes hearing this from other families helps. So many of my patients have expressed their thoughts below in order to help those going through this process. I feel a great privilege to be the recipient of my patients’ trust, and am honored to be a part of their recoveries.
Check out what patients and families from 11 countries around the globe are raving about.
Lyme and Mold
I have been referring clients to Dr. Jodie Dashore for several years for a variety of health issues.
Now, both of my children are under her care for Lyme, co-infections, and mold.
Each program is highly individualized pulling from a variety of protocols and methodologies that suit the patient.
Dr. Dashore is constantly changing supplements, herbs, homeopathy, etc. to get to the next step of treatment.
I have seen clients make a remarkable recovery under her care and my children are both doing great!
Lyme and Mold
I have been taking my son to Dr. Dashore for about two years. He had undiagnosed Lyme, co-infections and we are now delving into the world of mold.
We’ve been seeking wellness for our son for a decade now and she’s hands down the smartest person we’ve worked with…coupled with the fact that she’s very holistic minded and has traveled the world educating herself.
It’s definitely a process, but our son has made tremendous gains that have been noted by everyone at school and beyond. She offers a unique approach and plan to each patient. If she feels you need more than holistic meds she will tell you. I’d recommend her highly.

I’d recommend her highly.
I heard about Dr. Dashore from my friend in Nairobi. She was able to cure his son of autism. My son Saad was diagnosed with Autism and we started Skype appointments with Dr. Dashore 7 months ago when he was 8 years old. She has been using natural therapy, herbals, homeopathy and supplements for him. He has really improved a lot. His hyperactivity is calmed down, he is sleeping well, is getting strong, is growing now, eating better, not constipated at all, making good eye contact. We have more progress to achieve but his mother and I are very happy with this tremendous progress no other doctor was able to achieve. We have seen many doctors with poor results until we saw Dr. Dashore. We can’t thank her enough for her tireless efforts for Saad. Thank you, Dr. Dashore.

Author, Autism Advocate, International Speaker
Dr. Dashore and I have successfully consulted with one another on various complex medical matters. She maintains cutting-edge medical insight, giving deep attention to patients with autism, autism-related conditions, and other hard-to-treat disorders. Whether you want optimal health for yourself or seek specific answers for child or family problems, Dr. Dashore offers a program of achievable steps. Few doctors have her ability to connect the dots and solve complex issues in a safe and understandable manner. Her manner is gentle yet authoritative and she is an exceptional listener. Her valuable, individually tailored treatment may save you years of frustrating experimentation.
Lyme and Mold Detox
What can I say about Dr. Dashore- She's brilliant! She just spent personal time with Stephen Buhner at his home. Also spoke with his partner recently. She was a medical doc in the India and UK and now here works as a genius Naturopath. She is working with my whole family for Lyme and mold detox. Amelia did doxycycline with another doctor for six weeks. Her only antibiotic ever. It destroyed her gut. Her stomach was a balloon afterward. Dr. Dashore compounded a probiotic and a herbal nasal spray for the macrons that worked immediately. I highly recommend her. She rocks my mind with her answers!
Lyme and Mold
I have been seeing Dr. Dashore for mold, viruses and possible Lyme and co-infections.
I have highly recommended her as well to my friends. She is the best of both worlds- pairing her scientific knowledge with holistic remedies.
You cannot ask for anything more!
She has brought me so far already in my healing. I am so grateful for her.
I would highly recommend to see her for yourself. People come from all over the country as well as from overseas to see her. She accommodates her patients based on their physical restraints by providing phone and Skype consultations as well.
Dr. Dashore is seeing my daughter Riya through Skype for 1.5 years now. Riya was severely autistic but now is doing quite well and much improved. Dr. Dashore has a very advanced neurological approach with labs, all natural medicines from Europe and very high-quality supplements also. Riya has improved overall so much that we have applied for a US Visa and will be bale to travel with Riya to see Dr. Dashore in person. Her tantrums, her digestion, sleep, anger, focus, studying, reading, doing maths, appetite have all improved. It was slow at first because a lot of toxins were getting released but slowly she has changed in front of our eyes only. Dr. Dashore has made a miracle possible for us and I don’t know how to thank her for all her hard work and most importantly reminding us to never give up.
Crohn's Colitis Lifestyle
My experience with Dr. Jodie Dashore has been of the highest esteem. Her attention to detail, enormous heart and unparalleled experience is extremely rare and much needed in our ongoing battle for natural health. She has not only been a colleague but a dear friend whom I trust deeply. Anyone who is considering working with Dr. Dashore should feel confident in the stature of work they will receive along with growth in personal wellness in all forms of the word.
Jason has been doing very well with speech! He now repeats mostly everything you say and follows directions very well. He is starting to form sentences. His bowel movements have been normal after two years!
Alan and I can’t thank you enough; We never thought a Strep infection was the reason for his behavior issues. We are so grateful for everything you are doing to help Jason.
We look forward to all our appointments and I can’t wait for you to see how well Jason is doing.
I found Jodie to be a true holistic healer. She comes to each patient with a deep knowledge of both conventional medicine as well as alternative and non-pharmaceutical remedies. Jodie has a foot firmly planted in each of these worlds, not just one of them like so many other practitioners. I went to Jodie for help with general autoimmune issues that had been going on for a long time. I found her to be very thoughtful and insightful in connecting individual symptoms to the larger whole of a medical condition. For anyone with a chronic illness or a multi-systemic illness, this ability is extraordinarily hard to find and it can be the key to getting better. Jodie is especially attentive to issues that arise from the gastrointestinal tract, brain, and autonomic nervous system. She was also quite helpful and knowledgeable about nutrition and dietary issues. She works hard and she doesn't give up.
Rishabh is being seen by Dr. Dashore for 8 months now via Skype. We have received life changing invaluable help from Dr. Dashore. The labs she ran were rare and completely unknown to the doctors here. We found so many underlying infections and brain inflammation for Rishabh. She has treated with only natural plant based medicines, all very high quality from Europe and Rishabh is making wonderful progress. He is making great eye contact, playing with his elder sister, his sleep, appetite, aggressive behaviour, and school performance has all improved. We are getting good reports from his teachers in school also.
We brought my son to Dr. Dashore when he was 18 months old and diagnosed as autistic. He was not talking, not eating, not making eye contact and in his own world. When Dr. Dashore saw him the first time, she took 2 hours to evaluate and then told me, "No, he is not autistic, he has inflammation in the brain. He will improve." Afterward, we look at lots of labs. My son had so many infections with the virus, the bacteria, the fungus, and also biotoxins. Dr. Dashore was able to treat allopathic and naturally as per the need of my child. Now after 1.5 years, we are seeing amazing results. My son is now 3 and he understands TWO languages - Arabic and English. He is beginning to babble a lot and learning to talk. He is growing, eating, sleeping and we are getting wonderful reports from his school. Because of Dr. Dashore, I was able to put my son in a regular school! I recommend every parent see Dr. Dashore- she is absolutely amazing. Thank you, Dr. Dashore. My wife Ebzu and I are not nervous about my son no more. We know she is going to cure him.
Lyme and Mold
I was just at Dr. Dashore’s office yesterday, and as always I leave there feeling confident that she will get me back to how I was 3 years ago.
I have been seeing Dr. Jodie Dashore for a year and a half now for Lyme and mold and it’s adjoining complications. I was having difficulties walking, joint pain, fatigue, brain fog – at times I would be driving somewhere and all of a sudden I would not know where I was or how to get to my destination.
Thankfully all those are now things of the past.
One more comment… I have met people at her office that drive 3, 5 and 7 hours driving to see her.
She is the Best of the Best.
Autism and PANDAS
I’m happy to write this for Dr. Dashore. We have seen improvements within a short period of time with his Lyme induced Autism. We have been following Dr. Dashore's all natural biological protocol now for 5 months and the results have been very good. We're getting great feedback from his ABA teacher and he continues to improve steadily. His focus and seeking interaction has improved. He's also using more constructive words - not just repeating words or songs. Also more appropriate play with toys. It's an all-around improvement and his dad and I couldn't be happier. He's calmer and approaching family members - he's not just seeking for his dad or I. There's definitely more to improve, but the improvement is noticeable - a lot more from when we began. His eye contact is SO strong and he seeks for me to play with him - it truly makes me happy! At Back to School night Jack’s speech therapist mentioned to me they also see a positive difference. They're stepping up the demands on him because they see he's in a better place. Seeing him improve has lifted my spirit. I hope he continues on this positive path. Thank you, Dr. Dashore!

Autism and PANS
I have had the unique pleasure of working with Dr. Jodie Dashore professionally and personally over the last 8 years. The changes that have occurred in mutual clients and in my own children are truly remarkable. Dr. Jodie Dashore has a wide knowledge base that she is able to quickly pull from identifying underlying issues and immediately implementing a treatment plan. The treatment plans are all individual and constantly changing to tackle new symptoms systematically, to defeat problematic conditions. Through the years of my work next to Dr. Dashore, I have seen progress in ALL of our mutual clients and in my two children. The degrees of recovery are specific to the case and symptoms are too many to list. The most memorable treatments that stand out to me are the little boy who has lost his Autism Spectrum Disorder and PANS diagnosis and my children who are now happy and healthy after fighting PANS, Lyme Disease, and co-infections.
Lyme and PANDAS
Dr. Jodie Dashore is worth her weight In gold. I wish I found her years ago when my son had Lyme and PANDAS twice and I too was misdiagnosed. Highly recommend her over all the others. She's in a class of her own. Her family has all had Lyme, her too. She knows what it's like and is an intuitive genius. A true healer. She used herbs and homeopathic for all 3 of us. I adore her.
Lyme and Mold
I have been seeing Dr. Jodie Dashore in Marlboro, New Jersey for 1 and 1/2 year now for Lyme and mold and it’s complications. When she first saw me I was in real bad shape.
I was having difficulties walking, joint pain, fatigue, brain fog, sleeping most of the day and at night as well. I would wake up in the morning thinking when could I go back to bed. My doctor just kept adding meds on me. Nothing was working. And then I discovered Dr. Dashore through a Lyme group when she was a guest speaker.
She impressed me with her knowledge, kindness and the desire to help and inform people about Lyme and mold. She is very humble, very spiritual and she spends time with you. There is no rush. I saw her for the first time in November 2014, by February I was no longer sleeping during the day, but was going to bed by 7:30 – 8 pm most nights.
I am now functioning pretty well, my health is coming back and I no longer need to be in bed as much. She got me out of the hole that I was heading to. She is amazing and I truly believe she can help you.
Lyme and Mold
For all those who are wondering if it’s possible to ever get back to “somewhat normal”. I consider my story a success and hope it’s ok to share it to hopefully inspire others to keep moving forward and never give up. The right doctor is KEY to healing and compliance with mold avoidance/diet/lifestyle is as well. Here goes…
It has been a long road of ill health leading up to this point. I had seen at least a dozen Doctors. Many were specialists- Cardiologist, endocrinologist, neurologist, LLD, Functional Medicine doc etc. The last one to turn their back on me and throw their hands up was my functional medicine doctor. At first, I was worried and uncertain that anyone would believe me about my symptoms or help me back to health. After all, I had told my FM doc about them for 6 months and from the tone of the letter she sent me, she had given it her last try.
She felt I had PTSD, needed to do mental mapping and gave up on me. What I was experiencing was not in my head, but very real actually. Fortunately for me, I found Dr Dashore at that point. She was able to uncover my mystery illness and save my life. She and her family have experienced Lyme and mold illness firsthand, so she “gets it”.
I have spent the last 9 months under her care being treated for a severe biotoxin illness caused by Lyme and mold along with Bartonella, Babesia, EBV, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, mycoplasma, CMV, detox issues, large amounts of yeast organisms (protozoa) in my intestines. I’m sure there are things I’m completely forgetting to write as well. When I first started seeing Dr. Jodie Dashore in June 2015, my TGFb-1 level was 17, 500, which is astronomical. My NK cells were at 498. I had many inflammatory markers off the charts due to CIRS.
She had me run the Shoemaker labs and they were very revealing. I had to leave my house since there was mold found there. Day to day living was a challenge since I got symptoms in the grocery store and many other places that I can’t avoid going to. It still happens occasionally, but not as often.
She took all of my issues into consideration and started the healing process very gently with low doses herbs and homeopathics. She also started me on a low dose of Welchol (25% Shoemaker protocol dose…. 1 tab 3 times a day) because I was so fragile. I took BE spray for Marcons. I didn’t use the “G” in BEG due to my insane tinnitus. Dr. Dashore treated inflammation, infections, detox issues (organ support, gut support, and binders).
Her gentle approach with herbs and homeopathics, along with shoemaker labs/protocol and my mold avoidance are what I feel helped me the most. She cannot be found on the list of certified Shoe doctors, but trust me, she is more than qualified. That said, in between treating people worldwide, she is working towards her certification while helping people like me to heal every day.
I am forever grateful for having her as my Doctor. Jan 14, 2016, I moved back home into a safe room my husband made in our house, but unfortunately, my fatigue/fog/eye floater symptoms are returning. I still don’t feel right at home, but don’t have much choice to be here right now. Due to several unavoidable reasons, I have had no choice but to be in moldy places the last month. I’m certain if I had continued mold avoidance, I would be 100% right now.
During my time at a “safe house” and while in the thick of Dr. Dashore’s protocol, my husband had been staying at home alone trying to remediate and make repairs. Our son and I had been bouncing from family to friends since mid-July. My husband was diagnosed with high-grade bladder cancer in May and has had 4 surgeries (2 with significant complications), spent a week in the hospital with sepsis and was out of work for 6 weeks.
Dr. Dashore is also treating my husband and son for biotoxin illness. I am feeling so much better thanks to the treatments of Dr. Dashore. Once I can again practice mold avoidance, I will be at the top of my game. My TGFb-1 is in normal range again as of December 2015 and my other levels are balancing out. I just tested TGFb-1 last week and will update with my results when I get them. I slowly am starting to go back to work part time and am functioning in society.
