Eikona means “image” in Greek. Eikona Bridge takes you on a journey to a world that you have never been to before: the inner world of people with autism. This bridge helps parents, educators and the public in general understand today's children with autism. You will learn to discover these children's talents and ways to communicate with them.

Charlie’s perfectly ordinary life has been unraveling ever since his war journalist father was injured in Afghanistan. 

When his father heads from California to Virginia for medical treatment, Charlie reluctantly travels cross-country with his boy-crazy sister, unruly brothers, and a mysterious new family friend. He decides that if he can spot all the birds that he and his father were hoping to see someday along the way, then everything might just turn out okay.

Debut author Sally J. Pla has written a tale that is equal parts madcap road trip, coming-of-age story for an autistic boy who feels he doesn’t understand the world, and an uplifting portrait of a family overcoming a crisis.

Surviving the Cure shares the struggle, challenges, and inspiration that come with surviving cancer. Through the lens of his Asperger's, Andrew shows the hidden world of life after cancer—one of difficulty and diminished support, but also of hope and the resolve of survivors.

In his humorous and raw memoir, Surviving the Cure: Cancer was Easy,* Living is Hard, Andrew Bundy shares his journey about growing up with Asperger’s through the unpredictable reality of life after cancer. Diagnosed with leukemia just before he graduates high school, he begins a six-month battle against his disease. When he enters remission, he thinks he will soon join the rest of his friends in college. Instead, he is once again fighting for his life—this time against the cure that had saved him and with far less support than he’d had when dealing with his cancer. Against improbable odds, he manages to survive. However, side effects of his treatments create further complications—drug addiction, a degenerative bone disease, numerous joint replacements, and much more. Despite these constant setbacks, he finds the will to push forward and try to build a life worth living.

What is Mitochondrial Dysfunction?
Within each cell are “power sources” called mitochondria. In patients with autism and related disorders, these mitochondria may not function properly. This causes a decrease in cell performance and has been linked to hyperactivity, abnormal fatigue, muscle weakness, and regression of social and language skills.

A Link to Autism
During the last two decades, scientists have made a connection between autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and mitochondrial dysfunction. In 2009, researchers from Johns Hopkins University produced guidelines for the treatment of ASD patients with mitochondrial failure. They recommended a vitamin cocktail to restore the function of mitochondria, and improve brain chemistry.

We are Amanda and Christopher Dahl, and we welcome you to Dahl Holistic Health.
Like many of you that are here visiting the site, we have had some intense health challenges our whole lives.  In 2013, after decades of illness with no answers, we were diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease.  Our son was diagnosed, too!
From that point, I (Amanda) spent all my time learning about natural treatments, and after finding combinations of treatments that worked for us, we are all in remission. Over the last few years I have spoken to so many people that, like my family, were looking for answers about their failing health.
Our love and passion for helping others has brought us down an amazing path of healing and knowledge.  We are Reiki practitioners, we offer health coaching, and we work with essential oils and offer coaching for others that want to use them therapeutically.
We look forward to helping you in your healing journey.
