HEARTWARMING PROGRESS WITH AUTISTIC CHILDREN
THE VACCINE QUANDRY
I receive numerous calls each week from parents either with a newly diagnosed child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, parents who are dissatisfied with the traditional medical view that Autism cannot be treated, or from parents with children with Autism-like symptoms who have not received any diagnosis. The ages of the children vary. Regardless of your situation, it can be shocking, confusing and frightening to be faced with one of these situations. For nearly a decade now, we have continued to see promising progress with each child we have worked with. The extent of the progress varies, as do the combinations and degree of symptoms each child presents with. However, without a doubt, THERE IS MUCH THAT CAN BE DONE to improve immunity, organ function, speech capability, cognition and social skills. The younger the child is when we begin our program, the better. It is not a rapid process, but the progress with nearly every child is visible month to month. I encourage you read the “Testimonial” section of this web site, not because I am praised, but because it is my genuine wish that the parents’ stories written in their own words will give you hope and education.
I follow the Defeat Autism Now approach, as well as include gentle yet specific detoxification of the triggers your child tests positive for. In essence, the Defeat Autism Now approach is based on discovering underlying causes and addressing them in as healthy a way as possible. You will learn more about this in the following articles, but our non-invasive testing allows us to discover organ functioning levels, inflammation, gut dysbiosis, nutrient depletions, and trigger toxins (such as metals, yeast, vaccinations, allergens, viruses, bacteria, and much more), We have a substantial pharmacy in our clinic of organic, pharmaceutical grade products ranging from homeopathics, botanicals and blends, to probiotics, nutrients, phenolics and more. We seek to be as child-friendly as possible with the corrective programs we suggest. We are also fortunate to have a number of superb labs and companies that formulate organic compounds specifically for health needs with Autism and developmental delays.
If Autism is new in your family life, at our clinic we understand the complexities and challenges involved for the child, for siblings, and certainly for parents and extended family. It is because of this that we take time and care with you, to support you, educate you and be available for questions and concerns in between appointments. A number of parents of children I work with are generously available for conversation and guidance with various kinds of social therapies and support in general.
Please read the following articles on Autism, which have been printed across the United States.
Blessings to you and your family,
__________________________________________________THE CAUSES & TREATMENT OF AUTISM
For the sake of our children, read on…
Symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder are primarily visible in all facets of behavioral and learning disabilities. However, because there are also a number of chronic physical weaknesses and deficiencies, there can be extensive positive changes developmentally and socially by improving the physical health of your child. There may be a hereditary predisposition to Autism which can be triggered by hazardous neurotoxins ingested or injected, originating from environmental and other sources.
The incidence of Autism has increased to epidemic proportions. In the US alone Autism cases have exploded from 1 in 10,000 in 1985 to 1 in approximately 60 today. California alone reports a 273 percent increase since 1988. Having worked extensively with children diagnosed with Aspbergers (mild Autism), Autism or various developmental delay syndromes, I am convinced that Autism is largely an iatrogenic condition. “Iatrogenic” means treatment induced. Increasingly there is evidence that childhood vaccinations can pose a serious risk when administered to an infant or baby, and can trigger the onset of Autism. Unfortunately, this topic is riddled with politics and financial implications.
Vaccines are injections that contain weakened amounts of the disease germ the injection is meant to protect against. The premise is that this stimulates the body to produce antibodies, or proteins that defend the body from an invasion by harmful germs. The idea of vaccines to prevent disease can be traced back to 1796.
In 1943 Leo Kanner (child psychologist) announced his discovery of 11 cases of a new mental disorder, shortly thereafter known as Autism. As stated by Neil Miller in VACCINES, ARE THEY REALLY SAFE & EFFECTIVE? “These first cases of autism in the United States occurred at a time when the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine was becoming increasingly available. By the 1950s and 1960s, parents from all over the country were seeking help for their autistic children. The growing numbers of children suffering from this new illness directly coincided with the growing popularity of the mandated vaccination programs during these same years…
“The same correlations between autism and childhood vaccination programs may be found in other countries as well.”
Parents are often told that nothing can be done other than putting their child on drugs. THIS IS NOT TRUE. When the underlying triggers, weaknesses and deficiencies are identified through tests, and are addressed, we repeatedly see improvement in the child’s learning ability, speech, social skills, immune system function and overall physical and emotional health. The younger the child begins treatment, the better. Some of my patients have even had their “Autism” diagnosis removed by their former medical doctor. Most Autistic children have also sadly experienced much fear and invasion in health practitioners’ offices, and seldom are treated like the beautiful Beings they are. So it is understandable that they would tense in fear, anticipating being pricked or having to ingest medications that can have harmful side effects. However, it is very possible, as we have witnessed, for the children to enjoy returning for health-care appointments. This is made probable when they are in an atmosphere of support and fun, when their whole lives and family situation are seen as an integral part of the picture, and when they are able to be tested non-invasively without pain associated. Lastly, when they begin to feel better, this adds creative momentum to the process.
Speech Loss and the Measles, Mumps, Rubella Vaccine
Dozens of mothers have brought their children in for an initial appointment and said, “My child lost his/her speech right after the MMR vaccine.” Coincidence? Let me give you some information, and you decide. From THE NATURAL MEDICINE GUIDE TO AUTISM, by Stephanie Marohn: “Age 15 to 18 months is when children get the MMR vaccination. So, just at the time when they are experiencing maximum cranial growth and development, especially in the speech areas, they are given a vaccine, which is a potential trauma and a potential poison to the system. All of the components of the vaccine are foreign substances… The vaccine often causes a low-grade encephalitis, an actual brain irritation.” There is extensive information on this topic and, sadly, countless stories parents are telling.
As part of the overall nutrient, detoxification and dietary program we administer, often we will include Dimethylglycine, a non-protein amino acid, in combination with other nutrients for assimilation. This can assist in opening brain pathways for speech. Many children do respond to this to varying degrees, but if there is no progress we will then suggest Trimethylglicine for the same purpose.
Diptheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis
Thimerosol is not the only vaccine-related hazard. The vaccine schedule is so crowded that doctors are combining numerous viruses in one vaccine, as well as the many other toxic ingredients in vaccines. While there are extensive studies on dangers posed, here is one brief quote from, VACCINES, ARE THEY REALLY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE, by Neil Miller: “The diptheria, tetanus, and pertussis vaccines are usually combined into a single formula (DTP or DTaP). Components of this triple shot are ‘stabilized’ using formaldehyde – a known carcinogen. Each dose also contains thimerosol—a derivative of mercury—and aluminum potassium sulfate. Mercury and aluminum are toxic to humans.”
