What 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.
