Autism Recovery: An Open Apology to all of My Critics in the Autism Community

20111128-195525.jpg

In the last few days I have received countless curse-word filled comments on posts that I sent with the highest of love intentions. I am whole heartedly sorry for having offended so many people. I love and accept all humans (and other creatures) for exactly who they are, and have a huge amount of respect for people who stand their ground with honor and integrity. I think that the people who use vulgar words to discourage my quest are missing my point, and I’ll explain.

I think we’re all different and unique, and in fact– I’m not so “normal” myself. I think and act differently than my entire family. I know we all have something important to offer, and am an advocate of these rights.

I know there are many facets to autism, and I will continue to learn about them. My son was actually ill. He had so many infections and poisons in his body. He was sick and we got him better. During this process, we were told he had autism. As a mother, all I know is my experience. Perhaps the label makers got it wrong and he never had autism. Perhaps he still has it. I don’t know because I don’t believe in labels, so much.

I use the label autism here because many children who are diagnosed with autism like my son have the same illnesses that my son had. I have helped hundreds of them get well. Many people with autism these days are very sick. There are even new cases of cancer coming up among them, because they seem to have compromised immune systems. I could quote science, but I won’t because I want to keep this simple. To me, a mother and child experience doesn’t need science to be proven correct. I don’t think you take offense in me helping my sick child get well. I think you’re taking offense because you think I am saying that just by him having a beautiful autism mind makes him sick. You think I am saying that autism is wrong, evil, and unacceptable… This couldn’t be further from my truth. As he healed, we see even more of his beautiful mind. When he was sick he was having seizures, throwing up, very bad stomach issues and food allergies. He cried all of the time. As we healed his gut, we saw the classical autism symptoms disappear. This wasn’t a goal. More of a fact.

I’m sorry again for offending you. I just wanted to be clear that if you are able to send such well crafted emails to me, and are happy with who you are — then you are probably not speaking of the same autism that my son and many children are diagnosed with. It was never necessary for my husband and me to raise our son to fit into any box. Any box all. Not even the autism box. He is Dougie and we love him. If gets sick again, we will always do all we can to help him heal.

And it is because Dougie got well, that we cannot stop helping those who want our help. Anyone on our healing program will tell you that we HONOR those gorgeous differences.

I am raising my son to send love where there is hate. And, boy is he an angel. So, I send you love though you have sent me hate. If disagreeing with me causes you to hate me or send me more hateful email, that’s a shame. Hateful comments are not welcome here. Disagreeing is a healthy example of how diverse our planet is.

If you are an adult or teen with autism and would like to actively help younger people with autism, knowing that many of them get very ill– may be of help to you. In my life I have known many people with autism, and they did not suffer as much as my son and my clients. There is something here. But, again these are merely my experiences.

I have no desire to change or heal anybody. I have no need to prove my beliefs. They are just mine. They come from my experience which is real to me. I share them to help myself grow, and in turn I get the blessing of helping many people heal from things that no longer serve them.

I wish you much Love,

Gina
