Effective Treatments for Rising Number of Autism Cases

Autism RibbonWhat is autism? Google says it is: “a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts” Is autism really growing by 10-17% per year?

Developmental Disabilities Institute reports: “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that approximately 1 in 88 American children are on the autism spectrum. More specifically, it’s estimated that 1 in 54 boys, and 1 in 252 girls are diagnosed with autism in the US. That’s a 10 fold increase in diagnosis over the past 40 years.” and “The Autism Society estimates that this is a 10-17% annual growth.”

Experts do not even agree on whether or not autism is an autoimmune disorder. Some blame vaccines. Some say it is a combination of vaccines and Chemtrails. Still others say that it is other reasons, or just a coincidence. Who is right?

According to the debate on this topic on www.Webmd.com , they said “evidence does not dispel doubts.” A quick look at Google or YouTube will show you actors, TV personalities, and politicians who have taken a stand against immunizations because of the potential risks. Still – others affirm that vaccines are much safer than the diseases they prevent.

In the midst of the debate, the urgent question seems to be, What should people do when their child is already diagnosed with one of these autoimmune conditions such as autism?

Controversial homeopath – Kerri Rivera has conducted extensive research on Autism and offers advice that has apparently positively impacted many families. Her book is called Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism – 2nd Edition . Therein Rivera addresses diet, gluten, parasites, metals, hyperbarrc treatments, chlorine dioxide treatments, and other issues. Many thankful families have written in their impressive testimonies about improvements in their kids.

Some report that the whole family has adopted their autism child’s diet and have seen remarkable improvements in their own health, energy, and skin. Her methods are not universally accepted, but she reports that many children under her protocols have had their autism diagnosis reversed.

There are a lot of worrisome unanswered questions. But if there is a connection for kids who are sensitive to the ingredients in those baby shots, clearly it needs to be studied and rectified. More research needs to be done to look for any connection between vaccines and autism.

But whether there is a connection or not, parents have the right to know the names of all the immunizations and also the ingredients in each shot, so they can research it before they decide whether or not to consent to it.

If your child has already been diagnosed, and you want to begin treatment with a more conservative approach, see what nutritionist Julie Matthews has to offer in her highly acclaimed book: Nourishing Hope for Autism: Nutrition and Diet Guide for Healing Our Children [Perfect Paperback]. She has had impressive results as well.

  1. This is actually a very touchy subject for a lot of people. There seems to be a great divide:

    Pro-vaccineers who disdain anyone who doubts vaccines, who view any link between vaccines and diseases as silly, ignorant, and just another public scare.

    Then there are the anti-vaccine people, who tell everyone and their mothers how terrible vaccines are and to avoid it like the plague.

    I wish there was more conclusive evidence. I’ll be the first to admit, I haven’t looked at any journal articles or meta-reports. Maybe someone on here has. I certainly don’t have the time :D

    • True. Very touchy. I hope I have treated it tactfully & haven’t offended anybody. Just trying to share in case it can help somebody. Thanks for your input!

  2. This is a touchy subject for a lot of people. There seems to be a great divide:

    The pro-vaccine people who disdain anyone who speaks out against vaccines. They view a link between autism and vaccines as silly, detrimental to public health, and just another unfounded public scare.

    Then there are the people who treat vaccines like they are the plague, telling everyone and their mothers how bad they are for everyone.

    I wish there was a more solid conclusion from researchers or clinical trials. Maybe there is. I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t delved into any journal publications or meta-data reports.

    • Hopefully more studies will be done to find out if there is a connection. Meantime, parents can try dietary and other treatments. Some say their children have actually gotten their diagnosis reversed using the treatments. Pretty amazing.
