To Vaccinate or Not: Your Decision

When I first became a mom, deciding whether or not to vaccinate my son was not in my realm of thinking. I didn’t realize that I had a choice in the matter. I thought that being vaccinated meant being safe against disease. I decided to raise the healthiest, happiest child, and follow the best advice about how to do that.

Autism and Vaccine Poision: Yes My Son Was Vaccine Poisoned But there is MORE to autism

20111127-103844.jpg
Dougie created this “Mr. Tortilla Head”

I have this son who is more like an angel than a child. One day he got sick. I held him and tried my best to comfort him. If I wasn’t holding him, my husband or parents were. It seemed like he would never stop crying. And, our hearts ached for him. What was wrong?

He got really bad diarrhea. Really bad sore throats and ear aches. He coughed a lot. He threw up a lot. He didn’t want to eat. He needed medicine so we got it for him. He fought us when giving him the medicine. While, we thought it was the best thing for him, the strength with which he fought was quite extraordinary. It made me think deeper.

In the midst of him becoming physically ill, he had also lost his speech, eye contact and much of the happiness that he once had. He used to smile more. And, we think that smiling and laughter is a way of determining that our children are happy. His physical illness lasted through 5 rounds of antibiotics, cough meds, steroids for his lung infections and more. Of course, he spit up or explosive-diarrhea-d out much of that medicine.

Within the first five months of this illness (we don’t have any other word for this, but illness), I was on the phone with several doctors and nurses inquiring when this medicine would take effect… And why he would fight me so hard? Did they think that maybe he instinctively knew he was allergic to the meds? Nope. According to them, he was just sick…. Like all kids get, and this would end one day. But, he “needed that medicine.”

When I made the decision to fight his infections naturally, and took away the meds– he began getting healthier right away. We still had prescriptions left in the bottles, and I was using some of the first remedies I’d learned about: garlic, cayenne, raw honey, vitamin c and colloidal silver. We could tell he was healing because he got an appetite, and seemed less irritable. But we were a long way from Thriving.

The illness began directly after… Like 3 hours after my son received his last vaccinations. My husband took him in for the shots because I was at work (and frankly, I was having strange feelings about the shots, but I could not find a legitimate reason why not to do them). Like all parents who make sure to get their children vaccinated, we did it because we truly thought it was best for our son. We only want him to have the best health possible for him. If your child is sick, you want to help them. And, if you can prevent illness, you will do it within reason. Vaccines promised to prevent illness, and we are taught that injecting viruses, metals, preservatives and chemicals into our children’s blood streams is within reason.

I have to admit that I didn’t do any research on vaccines before deciding to get them. My doubts were merely gut feelings. I also couldn’t figure out why the nurse in my doctor’s office was telling me that I could choose… In not so many words, she was giving me the choice. Nonetheless, a few months off the regular vaccine schedule– my son went in to get his 18 month shots. And when I got home from work, he was sitting on the chair very lethargically. I called the doctor, and was told that this could be a reaction to the shot. I can’t remember if I gave him Tylenol that time. But,that was suggested to me.We used to give it to him before every shot to prevent fever, and it worked. Little did we know that Tylenol blocks glutathione — our bodies’ natural way of detoxing.

Before becoming sick, our angel loved to eat a variety of healthy foods. He loved zucchini, tomatoes, avocados and blueberries. He was only 2 years old when he first got sick, so he was mostly eating whole unprocessed foods. But, he’d had bread without a negative reaction. After getting sick, he only wanted carbs and sugary foods like pizza and French fries. His belly was very distended.

I set out to understand what was making him sick, because even after using my natural remedies, Dougie still had awful digestive and bowel problems. I felt I needed to get him to eat right. But, I was no longer sure what that meant. Most of his time by now was spent staring or crying. He wasn’t very mobile. I tried holding him, but at times he didn’t want me. So, I tried making him as comfortable as I could.

I was sad. I wanted to make sure he was happy, and he sure wasn’t. He often cried for spans of 12 hours at a time. Soon, I learned that there was a certain thing I could do with my hands that REALLY worked. All I had to do was touch him with a certain vibration running through me ( it was something I felt emotionally and physically but could not explain), and he would stop crying and seem very comforted.

I didn’t even have to be near him for this to work. I could hear him crying in the other room, and my hubby would say “Gina, raise up your hand,” and poof!– my baby was okay. I felt I had no choice but to help him heal. When he stopped crying as a result of “the tingly hand thing”– I knew I was getting to something deeper.

The way Dougie was acting when he wasn’t in pain and sadness really resembled autism. I’d cared for and befriended many people with autism in my life before Dougie was born. I’d even had dreams and waking premonitions that I’d have a child with special needs. I’d seen him exactly as he was then in dreams years before he was born. These were dreams I discussed with my husband when I’d had them, but forgotten about until I took a breath and saw what was happening before my eyes.

So, on one hand I had a sick child who I knew was going to heal. I just wasn’t sure how. On the other hand, I had a child who was showing signs of autism. Sometimes these symptoms meant he would line things up, stare, hand flap or be obsessive over certain toys like Thomas the train. Signs that he has an amazing brain. Something I wanted to know more about. Other symptoms were toe walking, spinning and spreading poop on the walls. Some of these things could get dangerous, So, I made attempts to help him do them more safely. I spun with him in public to show him how cool he is. I took him to parks where he banged the monkey bars to hear the sound, and I joined him. I think he knew he was cool. He still does. He doesn’t care one bit about what people think about him and, he is my greatest inspiration.

So, in the spirit of doing what was right for him, I called my aunt who is a special ed teacher. I was first doing what I was trained to do, and then doing my own research, prayers and meditation in the background….trying to cover all bases and give Dougie the best life possible.

I set up evaluations for him so that we could get any kind of special services that he might need. I got lots of help from my aunt who taught me a little about Neuro-Diversity. Yes! That brilliant brain idea of different thinkers–that felt like my child. The idea that some people’s brains are simply wired differently. I knew that was  part of our puzzle. I began to notice some signs that came before he got sick. Like how he rolled over early and talked early. He also really vibrated uniqueness. Not in the standard sense of genius..something more and different.

As I studied how to get him to eat better, I learned that gut health has everything to do with immunity and brain function. Our guts communicate to our brains through what is known as our enteric nervous system. Food allergies come from not having the proper gut bacteria to break down the food. This, over time can cause a leaky gut, parasites, yeast infections, and viruses which leak to the brain. Antibiotics cause leaky gut. Poor gut health could’ve been making Dougie crave foods that were good for his infections, and not himself. So, I added something called coconut kefir to our diets. This is a probiotic drink made from fermenting young coconut water. It is far more powerful than probiotic pills because it is live and is introduced as food, so it is more easily absorbed.

It’s a damn good thing that I had pneumonia for five months when this was happening, because– I too was craving yeasty/sugary foods, and having the worst digestive problems. My gut was so swollen that my mom thought I was hiding a pregnancy. So, I drank the kefir too. This was when BLISS started happening.

Within one week, Dougie had eye contact back. His tummy was going down. He was trying different food. Wow! I hadn’t asked for his eye contact. Yes, I wondered what happened to it. Yes, it was a symptom of autism. I started feeling better and noticing that my illness was going away. What’s more is that a major brain fog was lifting. I’d been having small seizures and passing out. We discovered that Dougie was too. The kefir was helping us think more clearly, and stop having seizures. Suddenly things in our family calmed down. Less crying… Still lots, but way less. More trying healthier foods without tantrums. Every day our strengths and physical health got better.

As Dougie healed physically, those classic autism symptoms came up. We were convinced he had it. And, we continued on with evaluations even though we absolutely hated the idea of having our kid labeled and evaluated by “experts.” I found that many children with autism have these painful gut issues and that Dougie was tantruming because he was in awful pain. The pain I experienced in my body was nothing compared to what he was feeling. I joined a support group of moms who are still the smartest people I have ever met. Together, we were helping our kids heal from food allergies, leaky gut, candida and more though diet.

By this time I discovered the deep connection between autism and gut health. I knew that some people had already lost their autism diagnosis after balancing out the body with dietary therapies. That was intriguing. And Hopeful.

Dougie was spinning, licking everything in sight, staring, lining things up –all classical symptoms of autism. And, we could see these symptoms coming out as he physically healed. He still wasn’t talking and we wondered if he every would. He was our angel and he was getting well, and we were all so happy that we were getting some sleep and even able to go out and have fun together again. It didn’t matter to us if Dougie ever talked. It didn’t matter to us if Dougie always had sensory issues. But, we were determined to give him everything in our power to teach him what we know, and introduce him to people who could teach him more. I’m patient, and I understand him on a vibrational level. Yes, there were times of mass confusion when I didn’t know what he had slipped into his mouth while I was in the bathroom (and most of the time he had to come with me to the bathroom).

If my child was going to grow up to be someone who spread poop on the walls, stared at walls and hand flapped–I would understand. I would do my best to teach him safe and healthy ways to treat his body and others. But, I would love and accept him no matter what he is or does. Incidentally, he stopped spreading poop on the walls after I engaged him in the clean-up process.

There is a beautiful mind, and there is sickness. A beautiful mind can also sometime get sick. Many of the people who I have met over the years with autism have taught me infinitudes about uniqueness, genius and of course, Neuro-Diversity. This is the beautiful mind part. Dougie healed each day, and less illness and more genius was making its way to the surface. His memory is amazing.

Dougie was detoxing out really gross things including parasites in his poop. One day while sitting on the toilet, he said, “my name is Dougie. I am 4 years old.” That was his first statement after getting sick. It had been years since he said anything that wasn’t just repetitive. I cried. He didn’t say much after that for a while. But, I noted that he said it after releasing a lot of frothy, foamy, gross stuff in his poop. Candida. Yuk!

He did get an evaluation and label of autism at age 3. He spent 2 years in speech and occupational therapies that were hard on him. We pulled him from the services because the people treated him like he was sick. Like he would never get better. We didn’t want any experts who knew nothing about us–working with our child.

He began flourishing after we took all matters into our own hands. We got him tested for heavy metal poison and environmental toxins. On paper, he showed to be loaded with mercury, cadmium, aluminum, antimony, lead and more. On paper, he was also deficient in magnesium, selenium, zinc, potassium, and more. If you were to look up all of those poisons, you would note that they cause many of the symptoms Dougie had. If you look up where they exist, you can find them in vaccines, food, water and more. If you look up the deficiencies, you may also find a connection to his symptoms.

Perhaps the deficiencies led to improper detox and the vaccines set off a reaction. Or perhaps the vaccines triggered an incorrect immune response that led to infections and deficiencies. Either way, as we detoxed Dougie from the poison and used diet and alternative natural therapies to address his deficiencies, his “autism” was disappearing.

That is, He was completely changing and becoming happier. He was talking clearly and wanting to socialize. He stopped all self injurious behavior (which flared up during times of detox, and we discovered was his body’s way of handling the inner stress of detoxing poisons).

He is 7 now. He is very healthy and remarkably smart. He remembers past lives. He talks about Atlantis. He can see spirits. He is homeschool/unschooled because he loves it. He asks for it. He reads and writes and uses the computer better than me.

He learns differently. He doesn’t understand “regular” ways of teaching math and science –which makes things much more fun for us. My husband and I get down on the floor with him and build puzzles. Dance. Drum. Sing kirtan. He “gets” so much on a much deeper level than most adults I know. There are concepts that Dougie understands far beyond the ability of his peers. Yet, there are things that kids his age say and do that he doesn’t vibe with. Each and every person in this world offers unique gifts. As adults, it’s socially easier to be different. We can specialize in one topic if we want, and make a great life out of it. Children are subject to so much judgement, and expected to be the same. Part of unscholling means changing this paradigm.

We really don’t like labels. We use them on this site to help people who want our help. But, we don’t define Dougie as anything but himself. We don’t mind if people say that he never had autism or that he still has it. That’s their prerogative and distraction. We love Dougie and know that his mind is very special. That’s why we helped him heal it.

Everything that happens on an inner level in our bodies and minds, is representative of what’s going on globally. We are all connected to one another and to our planet. I see autism as a symbol of what is going on on the planet. Our planet needs more special care and attention. Honoring our uniqueness and diversity honors our planet too. Things that harm the planet harm us on many levels. Our planet’s cry for help is representative of autism’s cry for help. I believe that the neuro-diverse mind has something very necessary to our survival. And that our planet is begging us to listen to them. My son Dougie can see Reiki when I do it for him. He wants it and loves the way it feels. Since cleaning up my life, I too am extremely psychic. I believe that it is the tapping into this psychic power…. The other side of our brains, that will help save us. Our planet will be fine. She’s just giving us clues about what we need to survive.

There are infinitudes of science to back up these beliefs, but then again you can find science to back up most claims these days. This is our story so far. And, it’s as true as my soul can muster. I had a beautiful child who got sick, and now he is thriving beyond belief. Label makers called it autism. I saw many layers underneath that could be cured. And, as we undid food allergies, metal poison and digestive issues– lo and behold the illness part went away. Some people glorify autism, and I don’t understand why. But, it’s okay with me if they want to use it to define themselves. We don’t. When Dougie’s older, he can decide if he wants to. To me, It’s just a label created by folks to put others in a box so they could understand them better. It cannot describe an individual. We are not proud of autism, as we are not proud democrats, republicans, Christians etc… These are labels that separate us. What we need is to come together and love one another… Or at least love ourselves enough to not have the need to judge others.

When I was a child, I used to hand flap, toe walk and line up soda bottles. I hated jeans for the way they felt on my skin. I was terrified to talk to many people I knew. I could see energy in the air. I knew things about people I didn’t want to know. I remembered being a nun in a past life, but none of it made sense to me when I tried to understand myself based on what my parents and religion taught me. I grew up just slightly different, I wrote a lot. I began writing a novel about a girl with these abilities. Is she Neuro-Diverse? Perhaps.

I got great grades in school without trying, but struggled with headaches, infections of all kinds, and as I got older — fainting spells. I was never really physically healthy until now. Because my son got sick, he inspired me to make the changes I also needed to balance my whole life. I do believe we all can thrive. And, that we get to choose what that means to us.

I believe my son chose me because I’m the perfect match for him on this lifetime’s adventure. I believe that there is so much beauty in being different and choosing different paths. I support you on yours no matter what you choose.

The Bliss is in the inner love and peace beyond the labels. And, the Bliss is in the journey. I am so infinitely grateful for this one.

I’d love to help you create Bliss  and Balance in your life! Contact me for a session!

Do You Love Someone with Autism? Learn How to use Reiki to Help Them (Special Price on Level 1 Attunements)

20111119-121249.jpg

Reiki and vibrational healing have been a tremendous help on our journey to recover our son from vaccine poison, environmental toxins, heavy metal toxicity, food allergies and so much more. In that spirit, I am offering half price Reiki 1 Attunements for parents, grandparents, and caregivers of children and adults (and for the kids themselves too) on the autism spectrum. You don’t need to have a formal diagnosis… If this describes someone you love and you want to help them– becoming attuned to Reiki is something that I’ve found to be the most valuable tool. After all, scientists continue to prove that our DNA Healing happens with vibrational communication between cells…. We can heal at a DNA level, and this is how we heal from something as complicated as autism. See this link for info on Reiki ♥

Reiki and DNA Healing

(this important information comes from a recent article at wake up world). THE HUMAN DNA IS A BIOLOGICAL INTERNET and superior in many aspects to the artificial one. Russian scientific research directly or indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light/auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more. In addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies WITHOUT cutting out and replacing single genes.

Only 10% of our DNA is being used for building proteins. It is this subset of DNA that is of interest to western researchers and is being examined and categorized. The other 90% are considered “junk DNA.” The Russian researchers, however, convinced that nature was not dumb, joined linguists and geneticists in a venture to explore those 90% of “junk DNA.” ( continue reading here)*

I run an autism healing program where participants receive a daily mantra that I designed to inspire healing at a core level. Whatever we can do to raise our vibrations and use those vibrations with intentions to heal will help eliminate the illness part of autism and ( I believe) the illness part of life. We don’t need illness. We only think we do. Reiki and energy healing is about un-learning those vibrations that don’t serve us ands tapping into something extraordinary.

I’m here for you if you have questions and need help!

Here’s to our collective THRIVING!

Half price attunements = 288. Please contact me if you’re interested. I’m here for questions and may also be able to work out payment plans for those in need.

Namaste,

Canary Party Launches: Action to End Corruption Behind Autism and Childhood Illness

 

Did you know that 1 out of every 2 children in America has a serious illness that requires special care? There is overwhelming evidence that environmental, chemical and electromagnetic toxins play a huge role in the formation of autoimmune dysfunction like allergies, asthma, autism and more. These toxins are in our air, water, food supply, schools, workplaces, homes and virtually everywhere we walk. These toxins are very much man-made and can be stopped.

 

About a month ago, I asked you to join me in “Oceans 11:11,” a virtual gathering of energy workers whose goal was to heal the core of our “issues.”  The issues being the things that keep us sick and spiral into poor decision making on a grand scale which results in war, depression, and mass negativity.  I referred to my energetic healing contribution as “Healing the Earth’s autism.”That’s because, to me, autism represents the absolute disharmony (physical, mental, emotional, karmic, neurological, immune etc).  To me, the state of our collective health and the conditions of our planet and environment are autistic. On some level, our planet and all of us are experiencing autism (through allergies, brain fog, depression, anxiety, digestive disorders, toxic overload, metal poison, parasites, etc).

 

So, we’re given this huge challenge — live with the pains associated with a global autism spectrum infection, (which is notably resulting in population IQ loss, complacency and, of course more toxic overload), or we can find the blessing behind this pandemic and do something about it. I don’t know what it is about us humans, but we don’t seem to take action unless it’s our last resort. Perhaps, it takes all of the baby steps for us to realize where to  go next.

 

Well, I’ve got amazing news for you. The baby steps have been taken. Parents and activists have spent decades begging our  political representatives  to make policy changes that protect our health. We’ve known since the 1980’s that vaccines can cause major brain damage and the evidence of their Ill effect on our children’s health continues to mount. We’ve known that pesticides are neuro-toxic by nature (due to the fact that they are designed to attack the nervous systems of pests), and we have done all of the preliminary work to convince the powers that be that our babies’ lives are more important that the cash they  make on toxic chemicals. We’ve done the work. No one has listened. So, what’s the amazing news? The amazing news is that our dues have been paid for us. We now have the power, the energy and the platform to begin taking real action.

 

The most exciting moment of the  “autism one” conference this week has been the announcement of the Canary Party. It’s Political. It’s Healthful. It’s so full of information and inspiration that I dare you not to join. If you want to make and see real changes happen for the health of your kids, check out their site. If you are sick and tired of “walking” for the cure of something (anything) and raising money for bogus research that never offers to carry out healthy changes, now you have a place to turn to. The great thing is that this is not about autism. This is not about democrats vs republicans. This is not about any other agendas other than creating the healthiest non -toxic world for our children –beginning with American political policy. And, you know that’s where we need to start.

 

A problem with proving that all of these toxins are responsible for brain damage, autism and more is that the current policies do not require testing of such toxins.  They have been “grandfathered in” and assumed to be safe. I can prove that my son has toxic overload (metals, pesticides etc), and I can demonstrate his improvement after detoxifying him and rebuilding his immunity through food and natural healing. But, if we keep  up this line of thinking, then lots more children will need to get sick. Let’s be proactive. Let’s prevent further damage by demanding that the government prove safety to us so that we can make real informed decisions on what we want or don’t want in our bodies.

 

The Canary Party is in it’s infancy stages and needs the help of all of us to make the dream of a healthier planet into reality. We are going to demand the changes needed. Let’s get rid of the toxic crap that threatens us daily. Let’s transfer that burden of proof to our government. With hard-core, valid science backing and careful strategies for positive change, I feel as though this is certainly one answer I want to spend my time on.

 

I want to see real policy changes. And, I don’t want to beg for them. In his announcement of the party today, Mark Blaxill told us that it is time to stop begging and start demanding. I’ve written letters, made phone calls, spread the word of healthier living to every parent, friend and client who has come my way, But, when it is so much easier to purchase products that are dangerous for our health than ones that are good for us…most of the people I speak to actually wonder about the validity of my claims. I mean, why would our country, The Great and Mighty America promote illness?

 

It’s clear to me that my efforts and yours for the past years and decades and especially on our global healing initiative have paid off. We have gotten some core healing. Earth’s autism is a message that can help us get healthier than we’ve ever been before. Sure, the toxic build-up around every corner affects us negatively. But, we can live clean lives and eat clean food. This alone is bringing deep healing to many, including my own family.  What’s more is that we can make our food and our planet cleaner for those to come.

 

I think, we can stop asking why.. why was this done to us? And look to what we can do now. Just LOOK at what we can do NOW. Now is truly our time to shine. People are trying to tell me that autism rates in Korea are as high as 1 in 38 children. That’s 1 in every 38 children with a deep message on how to get back to the earth and feel better once and for all. To use our full brain potential. Our creativity. Our passion. Our skills. To go out there and take some real action.  Listen to what our kids are telling us!

It’s finally time for you to do what you have always wanted to do. You have so much power. And, the power in numbers is exponentially greater.

 

What will you do with this new info? I’ll be headed to Minnesota for the July 22 Canary Party Convention to see how I can help more.

 

Thank you to the age of autism staff  for your inspirational talk today at “autism one” – you’ve been my #1 News source for autism news since day 1, and you keep me smiling as I learn. 

 

I also urge you to join me in another Oceans 11:11 event on June 15, where we focus on taking back our power. As you can see, I believe we are right on track for that.

 

Namaste,

Autism Recovery: autism Undone Undoing the “Symptoms” Behind the Misunderstood Label of autism

first published on healartfully.com may 2007

The system says he’s autistic because that’s how they define environmental toxin overload: It’s not their fault — we must change the system!

To me, autism represents the overload of various toxins in an underdeveloped immune system.

This toxic burden eventually disrupts organ function and manifests itself as outward neurological, developmental, social and sensory disharmony. When the world labels an individual’s condition “autism” –the levels of toxicity and depths to which the body expresses this must be severe. This means that most of us are toxic to some degree. However, with autism, we are often dealing with immune systems that have been assaulted since pre-birth, rendering them virtually unable to naturally release these toxins like the body was designed to do.

Scientifically, toxins can build up through genetic predisposition; diet; bacterial, fungal, parasitic, viral and yeast infections; heavy metal poisoning; pollution; and are often passed down from mother to child during pregnancy and birth. Spiritually, toxins can also build up through stress and negative energy. An immune system on toxic overload can suffer malnutrition (regardless of how much food is consumed), neurologic malfunction, all kinds of allergies and autoimmune problems, sensory issues, and every other familiar trait that is regularly attributed to autism.

Most sources will classify autism as a developmental disorder, where speech, socialization and perception are delayed or seriously impaired. I reject definitions that only speak to the outward symptoms of this condition. Such sources will also neglect to offer advice for curing the autism problem.

Foundations are built on the principle of raising money to support families affected by autism – money that will help them pay for medicine and intervention. Medicine and support to help them cope with the painful symptoms, strange behaviors, and society’s ignorant remarks about their children.But nothing that gets to the core and urges them to change significant things about their lives. Families need to be aware that coping can only go on for so long.Families deserve the hope that their affected children will not have autism forever!

A Spectrum of Poison

The level of toxic build-up is as unique as the individual – resulting in a spectrum disorder. What we know for certain is that inner imbalance equals outer chaos.

When we see an individual acting out autistic symptoms like hand flapping, head banging, spinning or tantruming, – it is often a sign that the body is struggling to ease the pain of these toxins. The body wants to heal itself; and will continue to do so, in some cases causing disease and disorder as a last resort.

That is why, to me, autism also represents a final call for help – and a sign that positive change is on the way!

A person affected by autism often has great sensitivity to the unnatural (foods that have been chemically sprayed or genetically modified and overly processed, air and water pollution, traditional western medications and vaccinations, electromagnetic fields from cell phones, wifi, etc.).

I have personally witnessed remarkable transition when these unnatural things have been replaced by healthier lifestyle choices.

More children are diagnosed with autism as we continue to vaccinate them and add poisons to our planet.We have lost confidence in our own bodies’ abilities to heal ourselves and have let BIG PHARMA take control of how we medicate and prevent disease.

This is why autism was given to us. We have forgotten how to listen to our bodies, and we have traded infectious disease for chronic and autoimmune DISSARAY.

Nature Gives us The Tools to Heal: Each Person’s Needs are Unique

The best scientists support a path toward natural healing and have reported on the dangers of such toxic build-up. However, it has taken epidemic rates of autism diagnosis, (as well as other forms of toxic manifestations like allergies, ADD, and alzheimer’s ) for some of us to recognize that the way we’ve chosen to live for the last century has drastically depleted our collective health.

Conveniences like microwave ovens, and alleged safety regulations that have been placed on our food supply — like the homogenization of dairy and the irradiation of fruits and vegetables are alone causing mass malnutrition. If our food is no longer food, how can we fuel our minds?

As a disorder, autism unravels when we embrace the healing power nature provides us. This includes diet change, emotional and spiritual practices, touch and sensory therapies, and methods that evoke positive energy.

I welcome autism because it will not be cured with a pill. It will not be cured by a teacher or a doctor. In fact it requires a complete paradigm shift from the modern frame of mind.

The Gift of Autism

In order to relieve the pain that autism brings we must also honor its gift. Allowing these truly brilliant children to break through autism, means that we are giving a new hope to the world. Hope that we can finally truly learn how to heal ourselves from whatever ails us. And, as these beautiful minds become clear, these children will be the teachers that lead us into a healthier more conscious future.

Autism may just be a necessary step toward the collective detoxification of our species.

Your Gut. Your Immunity. A Key to Unraveling Autism

A child is born with a permeable gut which allows him to properly assimilate the good bacteria from his mother and benefit from the colostrum in her milk. Body Ecology refers to this as nature’s first vaccine.

This intestinal bacteria and nutrition from Mom sets the stage for the person’s immunity throughout life. This teaches the child’s body to properly respond to illness, by pushing illness out. (TH1 immune response) But, when we consider drugs used during birth, C- sections, immunizations right after birth and the stress endured in the modern labor room – we are not setting the stage for a healthy life with most of our children.

Mercury is Not the Only Problem with Vaccines

Vaccines, besides being loaded with viruses and metals, teach the body the wrong immune response (TH2 response). This forces the body to internalize illness. Thus creating autoimmune problems.

The vaccinated newborn’s gut is not allowed to develop.If the child is then put on powdered milk and soy formulas they begin to form their first digestive problems. Parents may notice this as colic, restlessness and tantrums –or there may be no signs at all.

Since our immune systems are primarily governed by our digestive tracts (colon, liver, kidneys), we find that many people on the autism spectrum begin to reject foods that cannot be easily digested and assimilated.

These foods will vary because we must consider severity and of course, the individual’s uniqueness. Gluten, casein and sugar top the list of frequently rejected foods – all of which are unsurprisingly often overly-processed, over-eaten by the general population and farmed unnaturally. If the person’s system cannot digest these which most of us consider to be food — imagine what happens when you add chemicals, fillers and whatever makes Twinkies last 50 years!

S.A.D Refers to the Standard American Diet.

And, it is sad that so many of us are filling our bodies with “foods” that have no nutritional value.

The autistic digestive tract cannot take the overload. They don’t just get stomach aches, fatigue and pimples. They lose awareness of their surroundings, they suffer horrible frustration and physical pain. They lose their words and abilities to speak their minds. They may feel the need to bang their heads or rub their faces on the wall because their skin feels numb, and they yearn for some sensation. Many children also suffer seizures.

Toxic Behavior

We have discovered behavior patterns that are directly related to specific toxins; such as incessant spinning as a result of ammonia (from protein) overload. We have heard that some children walk on their toes because it relieves the pain of a heavy gut.

We know that often overload of toxins causes mal-absorption of necessary nutrition. And, this results in malnutrition. Any good scientist will tell you that malnutrition and indigestion are the basis of most diseases.When one organ is not getting what it needs to function, all organ function begins to dwindle.

When toxins thrive the true individual cannot thrive.

Moving Beyond the Label

When I hear that there is no definite cause or cure for autism – I hear fear and laziness. I envision a collective ego that thrives on illness and disorder. I envision a system that does not want these children to break free because it would jeopardize their jobs, their beliefs, their reputations and of course THEIR MONEY.

If families identify with autism, they will be offered sympathy, statistics and half-hearted research that will inspire them to hang in there. This frame of thinking allows disease to prosper. Modern medicine profits on illness. By subscribing to the “there is no cure” bandwagon — we are keeping the negativity alive.

We are made to believe that milk does a body good and immunizations protect us.I continuously read about the dispute over vaccinations and how we are still really unsure. I am not unsure. Injecting poison into a baby is a bad thing. A bad thing! And if that poison doesn’t manifest itself as autism, it is likely to trigger allergies and chronic illness.

How long do we really want to keep playing Russian Roulette with vaccinations, processed foods, and artificially flavored lifestyles? One out of six children born today will be affected by this in childhood. And what happens when they grow up? Where do you think cancer comes from? How about Alzheimer’s?

Well, my family doesn’t want sympathy from those who refuse to research beyond the obvious. We are blessed beyond belief to even be in the same world as these children.We just want you to stay out of our healing journey, unless you are going to acknowledge that we are here. We want you to stop lying to our friends who are just discovering that their baby has a disorder which you call autism.

Parents must not be made to believe that there is some mystery behind why their beautiful little one regressed from bubbly to dazed in a matter of months! They deserve to know that their children will function properly in society! We must no longer portray children who are drastically affected by the many poisons that we have created, as some kind of idiot savants with weird behaviors!

If their little bodies were only allowed to thrive in a non toxic world, we would see more of the genius and less behavior.And, that’s why they are going to break through. Because at the core they are smarter than this system. They have the key to the continuation of humanity.

We know that there have been great scientific advancements to a cure. And quite frankly, I am grateful for all that science has done to lead me to my answers. But, there is too much miscommunication about what to do with those answers. The CDC suggests that parents discuss vaccinations amongst each other and with their pediatricians. Well, when they advertise for immunizations on the radio, what’s a parent supposed to believe?

We have plenty of great schools and programs that help. Thank you. We have tried them and we love our wonderful teachers. But, nobody has taught the teachers that there are reasons behind this.

If teachers were aware of the gut/brain connection and how environmental toxins trigger autism, these teachers would be much better equipped.

American parents should be able to rely on their government for the most up-to-date information on illnesses like this. But, our CDC’s list of recommended physicians isn’t very well rounded. DAN Doctors are changing things! Real medical doctors who advocate proper nutrition and detoxification as a means of actually RECOVERING autism are making huge strides!

We are not merely interested in helping these kids, we are interested in completely recovering them. I know that it’s a system, and I place no blame on individuals within the system who have just been doing their jobs with good intentions.

But, if those individuals are not planning to step up for the better of my baby – then I ask them to simply step down. We are here creating positive changes, and our words deserve to be heard. We deserve to be able to reveal the truth.

Their Autism Does Not Exist.

I will not prepare my son for a lifetime of not being “right” inside himself. My son is thriving and will continue to emerge from the mask created by the toxins in his body.His recovery has everything to do with eating food that provides real nutrition and heals the gut from early assaults.He is healing because his parents will not allow his little body to be attacked by vaccines any longer. And, we are not afraid of the so-called consequences.

We know that we are building his immune system to a point where he can prevent disease on his own.Geez, if everyone knew this then we wouldn’t need many vaccines would we?Because after all, it is quite likely that disease will spread if everyone just stops vaccinating, right? That is unless they all begin eating real food, and looking into their own unique nutritional and spiritual needs for balance. If we did that, we wouldn’t need so much medicine. Because disease would be something we read about in history books.

Okay, so I understand the system’s need to keep us sick. But, I’m not buying those little pills any more!

We are moving toward a greater awareness of the consequences of our past actions. We have been given a chance to change things, and I am confident that our children will experience a healthier world!
