Her techniques help individuals find relief from anger, anxiety, stress, addictive behaviors and thought patterns.

Most individuals diagnosed with HFA are have average or above average intelligence but may struggle with issues related to social interaction and communication.
Eva's techniques have been highly effective when working with many people who fall within the high-functioning Autism spectrum. While Eva is NOT an ‘expert’ on either Asperger’s or Autism, she has teamed up with http://wwwAspergerExperts.com to offer well-received and well-attended workshops around the country on these techniques.

For many years our government has been deceiving us: we are the most lied to nation on earth. Autism is a tremendous problem that affects everyone, a major public health crisis of unequalled proportions, and yet our government refuses to acknowledge it as such. Jon E. Mica’s book 'The Autistic Holocaust: The Reason Our Children Keep Getting Sick' accuses the federal government of having a corrupt and morally unsound relationship with “Big Pharma.” Noting the dramatic rise in cases of autism in the United States since the 1970s, The Autistic Holocaust discusses the rampant misuse and dangers associated with vaccinations. His book argues that the Center for Disease Control has lied to the American public by presenting inaccurate data on annual flu deaths and, along with the Vaccine Safety Datalink, has buried damaging research on the perils of vaccines. Written by a parent of a child suffering from Asperger syndrome, this book is a mustread for anyone concerned with the neurological brain disorder. It is clearly evident from the testimony given in the OCGR hearing that the CDC is being completely evasive, and genuinely disinterested in preventing or curing autism. They signed a secret contract with a private company for $195 million, to keep the Vaccine Safety Datalink hidden from all external researchers. The VSD is what determines vaccine safety. And is the basis of policy which our government determines if we should be vaccinating our children or not. Big Pharma and the CDC have been poisoning our kids and making them sick for years. The CDC and Pharma knew over 10 years ago that thimerosal had an association to neurodevelopmental disorders and autism. They proved it themselves. Then they hid the truth in the VSD.
