Question?: Treatment For Autism In Babies

Maria asks…

What are your views on the MMR vaccine and autism?

Do you have children that you have decided to vaccinate or not, how are they developing? Please be honest – there is an epidemic of autism in this country (one in 130 kids!!!!!!) why the sudden increase over the last few decades if not the vaccines???? I’m petrified! I refuse to sentence my baby to mental retardation just because a doctor tells me to! HELP!!!!

admin answers:

You’ll have to make your own choice about vaccination. As the father of a 9 year old son with Asperger syndrome, a borderline autism spectrum, my experience was that he was developing quite normally, in fact above normal until he got the vaccine which did have thimerosal , at age 1 1/2. From then on he showed significant deterioration in verbal and social skills including eye contact and interaction. Before the shot he was beginning to speak and and react to his mother, siblings and I. He has been seen by the top experts in the United States, coast to coast, as we’ve spared no expense to provide the best medical treatment for him. His mother and I have undergone gene testing and have been determined NOT to have genetic markers for autism. No history of it in either of our familes at all. When I read and hear from all these naysayers pontificating that there is no connection between thimerosal /mercury vaccines and autism, I have to grin because without actually experiencing the results first hand they are only convincing themselves about what they believe and certainly not the heartbroken parents or children who suffer from vaccine related autism. And no, not every single case of autism is the result of vaccinations, but for the kids who suffer from it, the naysayers are doing a grave disservice to them and the public at large. So do what you feel is right for you and your kids and don’t let me or people who have opposing views to mine convince you one way or the other. But for those of you saying Aspergers syndrome is a “fad” I submit this: Asperger syndrome is named after Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger who, in 1944, described children in his practice who lacked nonverbal communication skills, failed to demonstrate empathy with their peers, and were physically clumsy. Fifty years later, AS was standardized as a diagnosis, but questions about many aspects of AS remain. For example, there is lingering doubt about the distinction between AS and high-functioning autism (HFA);partly due to this, the prevalence of AS is not firmly established. The exact cause of AS is unknown, although research supports the likelihood of a genetic basis; brain imaging techniques have NOT identified a clear common pathology. This is fact not a “fad”.

I wish you and yours the best.

Question?: Schizophrenia Causes

Mary asks…

What causes Schizophrenia besides genetics?

How do you know if some has Schizophrenia?

admin answers:

There are multiple theories on why someone develops schizophrenia this is called ‘heterogeneous’ origin. While there are clear examples of it being inheritable others may have a predisposition that requires an environmental trigger.
During times of famine the incidence of schizophrenia can double and the current theory is that this is socondary to low folate in the diet of the mother. Fortunately with international aid, famines are not as common as they have been historically.
Since schizophrenia is slightly more common in the Northern Hemisphere and slightly more common in late spring births and infective agent was suspected at one time. I don’t know if this is still an area of active research.
Heavy metal toxicity and in particular mercury can cause or worsen symptoms.
The bottom-line may be that there are problems with the inherent antioxidant systems in the neurons that ultimately are supposed to control levels of dopamine. An abundance of dopamine can be neurotoxic. It is the combination to these two things that produce the symptoms.

Question?: Autism Symptoms In Infants

Joseph asks…

Do you believe that Autism is caused by shots?

I wonder if it is not thy kind of overload our childrens bodies at a very young age with vaccinations. Have you read Jenny McCarthy’s book?
If you do believe that it causes autisim would you get your child the shots?

admin answers:

It has not been proven or disproven. But regardless of that, I do not trust vaccine safety. There is mercury, lead, aluminum, formaldehyde, etc. I don’t understand why anyone would want to put known toxins into their babies bloodstream.
Many of the vaccines are not needed. Also they are not safe. There are still many vaccines that have thimerosal (doctors were not required to get rid of any stock they had, and could still have some). Vaccines are not tested for carcinogenic potential. So it is possible that they could cause cancer. Formaldehyde is in many childhood vaccines and some are made from aborted fetal cells. GROSS! I know that there are risks of not vaccinating, but there are also some scary risks associated with vaccinating. Honestly, I know that people say the risks of having a bad reaction are low, but do you want to take the chance of your child having a bad reaction. Also, I have been looking at each individual vaccine and the need. Hepatitis B is sexually transmitted, so the risk for an infant is not there. Hepatitis A, is not needed either, many times children can have it without symptoms, and then they are immune for life (that is more than a vaccine can do). Mumps are usually asymptomatic, so this vaccine is not always necessary. Diptheria can be cured with an antibiotic. Measels used to be a normal childhood disease, adn people gained lifetime immunity. Vaccinations do not give lifetime immunity. That is why people have to get booster shots… If you are torn and need more time to think about it, delay the vaccines and you can always get them later. But you will NEVER be able to take them back. I am also not trying to force my views. It is for you to decide. If you want some more reading material on the subject, e-mail me. And children do not need them for school (there are waivers in every state). So do not let that be the only reason that you do it.

Question?: What Is Autism Yahoo

Susan asks…

I know autism is typically shown as a child but can Autism also first show its signs in adulthood?

It may sound stupid, but are there two types of autism, one that develops in late teens/early adulthood or is just childhood?

admin answers:

If it is environmental as many believe, yes it can present later in life. But, most often the toxins are introduced to those sensitive to them in early childhood. There are not really two types of autism, there are millions, one for every affected person. I’ve yet to see two people who present in the same way with a diagnosis autism.

BTW – It doesn’t sound stupid, but a legitimate question.

Here is a site where lots of people know about autism first hand, not just from psych books. Http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/Autism-Mercury/

Question?: Autism Symptoms In 6 Year Old

Ruth asks…

Does anybody have any suggestions on the Thimerosal Vaccine?

My daughter is 1 year 2 and a half weeks old. She is up to date on all her shots and we haven’t had any problems so far. But I am really worried about this Thimerosal problem. I just heard about the connection of Thimerosal and autism in toddlers last week. My daughter is due for another set of shots in 2 months. Does anybody know of any websites or have any suggestions on if I should allow them to give her the shots? Has anybody not let the doctors give the vaccines because of this problem?

admin answers:

Http://www.909shot.com is a really good unbiased website.

You should also be concerned about the formaldehyde, aluminum and other preservatives in vaccines that are neurotoxins. My oldest two daughters are fully vaccinated, unfortunately I didn’t know then what I know now about vaccines. My youngest(6 months) will not be vaccinated. I do see that my oldest has eczema, symptoms of ADHD, slight learning disability and gets sick from anyone one with a mild virus she comes in contact to. I currently have her seeing a holistic chiropractor and I am trying to keep her diet as organic as possible. Is it caused by vaccines, no one knows. What I know is that the manufactures have not tested vaccines for carcinogens, but formaldehyde, aluminum, mercury are all known carcinogens. Cancerous material in our children’s bodies!, Scary isn’t it? The chance of a healthy unvaccinated child getting a disease that a vaccine covers is almost nil, none, notta. People say that if your child does not get the vaccine then your child is going to die from that disease. Why? We don’t live in a third world country and we have the medical technology to take care of us, right? The chance of a child dying from a disease that a vaccine would cover is slim if your child were not vaccinated. Vaccines are not 100% effective and there are many long term issues that come from vaccinating, with the rise in the # of vaccines given to a child under the age of one, there has been a huge rise in ADD, ADHD, Autism, cancer, autoimmune disease and disorder, heart disease, heart attacks, and neurological damage. Good luck to you and your family. From one parent to another.

Question?: Pdd Nos Symptoms

Maria asks…

Autism when was the first case diagnosed? Did it start with Mercury exposure?

http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/56227.html
my daughter has autism and severe mercury poisoning!!!! WHY???

admin answers:

Two of my kids have a form of autism called PDD-NOS (pervasive developmental delay, not otherwise specified). One has mercury and aluminum poisoning, and my son has aluminum poisoning. We measured this in their hair, urine and blood. My older daughter with mercury poisoning and symptoms got shots with mercury as a baby before this was removed. I also got a flu shot containing mercury while I was pregnant. My young son is no longer autistic after treatment to remove aluminum (zinc supplements, elimination of aluminum in diet and melatonin). Both of my affected children became autistic overnight…stopped speaking completely for several weeks, not gradually as autistic specialists try to convince parents, my son stopped smiling, laughing, saying mama and cheering when his dad came home from work all the morning after he received shots at 15 months, coincidentally the most common time for children to develop symptoms of autism. My son was discharged by all of his therapists within 2 weeks of when we began treatment for aluminum poisoning; none of his therapists had ever seen a child recover so well or so quickly. They have shared this info with other parents, and so far, of 20 children tested, 18 have been found to have aluminum poisoning as well, and some also had mercury poisoning. This really does happen.

Question?: What Is Autism Yahoo

Robert asks…

How much is stem cell treatment for autism?

How much does adult stem cell therapy cost? And where can i go to receive it? I have autism/Asperger’s, and i am not really sure if adult stem cell therapy is able to treat Asperger’s, even though it has been used to treat more severe forms of autism.

admin answers:

I think you need heavy metal chelation, which is a lot healthier and cheaper than stem cell therapy.

Most (75%) of ASDs are mercury poisoned. Here’s a group of adults who do low dose chelation:

Question?: Autism Signs In Older Children

Betty asks…

Can a normal child still develop autism after 18 months?

Or is it more like hereditary and clear from the time they’re one year old?
My daughter babbles and points to toys etc so she’s fine. But all the media stories are keeping me worried it might still hit her.

admin answers:

Take a deep breath…..

Autism is usually detected around two years of age. Most people notice it at this time because their child has not yet begun to speak, plateaus, or forgets words they once knew.

Gaining attention by babbling is a good sign. Actually seeking your attention is any way is a good indicator that your child is developing normally. Sustained eye contact and responding to name are something else to be on the lookout for at a young age. Pointing at toys and reaching for objects when she wants them is a great thing. These are all signs that your child is “on the right track”.

It is my firm belief that you don’t develop autism. Children are simply born with it, but the signs that something is wrong don’t become apparent until later in life. If your child falls on the mild end of the spectrum it may take even longer to recieve a diagnosis.

Here’s the thing. If you are worried to the point of anxiety have her screened. I think the CDC is now recommending that all children be screened for autism twice before the age of two. If you really want it, don’t take no for an answer.

Good Luck.

I just wanted to edit this in order to add that no childhood vaccine (save some versions of the flu shot) currently contain thimerisol, the mercury additive everyone is so worried about. It was taken out a few years ago and rates of autism still, unfortunately, continue to climb. I only mention this because another poster brought it up and I feel it is dangerous not to vaccinate your children. Especially when you are basing your decisions of facts that are not exactly correct.

Question?: What Is Autism Caused By

Laura asks…

Do you think autism is caused by vaccines?

I’ve heard a lot of rumors that autism is caused by vaccines. Do you think this is true? What do you think is or may be some of the reasons for the rising numbers of people with autism?

admin answers:

Vaccines definitely cause autism.
Many of the posters here have no idea what they are talking about and please don’t take my word for anything. I will provide a few links to get you started if you really want to research it.
Maybe its the mmr,maybe the hep b or maybe the flu vaccine. Go here for some inf on the vaccine story.
Http://www.whale.to/vaccine/mmr49.html
Each vaccine examined alone is quite a different thing than having 6-9 different injected into an infant bypassing their immune system is quite another.

The vaccine schedule in currently in place is insane.

They are full of mercury,(this despite the idiotic attempt to say vaccines no longer have mercury in them) Sidebar: why lie about removing it if its so safe?

They contain aluminum(a known neurotoxin)

Aborted human fetal tissue-yea that’s right,
formaldehyde and a host of other stuff you don’t even want to know about. Go the the science section here for the complete list. Http://www.vaclib.org/

Studies dismissing this are produced/funded by the manufactures of the vaccines to hide this fact.
Ignorant people buy it because they want to believe vaccines are safe.
The parents and doctors of thousands of vaccine injured children beg to differ.

Merck funded the last one. Don’t believe a word of it. It’s propaganda to cover there sorry asses from another costly VIOX type of disaster.
The most recent attempt to explain away the rise of autism is a complete joke. It isn’t funny though when the press just regurgatates any crap they are fed without even bothering to read it or fact check it. It’s shameful

Krill oil.
