One of the most widely debated subjects in health care this decade has been the topic of autism. Autism rates have increased dramatically and the mainstream medical institutions are unable to explain this, even while they reject the explanation that seems to most logically explain this rapid rise in autism - the massive increase in administration of vaccine shots to children. In this article I will be sharing some of the most advanced information on this topic, guiding you as the reader to learn how you can help prevent autism and help those who have been diagnosed with autism and autistic spectrum disorders access therapies that may effectively reverse the condition and heal autism. There are now a growing number of organizations that are enlightening the public about the role of vaccines in triggering autism and the benefits of biomedical treatments that help detoxify the body and restore normal immune, digestive, and neurological functioning in those who have been diagnosed with ASD (autistic spectrum disorders). These are organizations that are primarily supported by holistic practitioners and by passionate parents who wish to help others and share what they have discovered about autism and how it can be effectively treated. Organizations that have financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry (which includes government agencies) continue to deny any link between vaccines and autism, and have brazenly misrepresented the available research on this subject to justify that conclusion.
The debate about whether vaccines contribute to autism would probably not exist if there weren't a coverup and distortion of the body of evidence that links vaccinations to higher autism rates.
Here is a site that lists 14 key studies on this subject http://www.fourteenstudies.org
For those who enjoy videos, a lecture from a D.A.N. (Defeat Autism Now) Conference is available to be viewed:
Here are links to several organizations that openly share the evidence about the vaccine-autism link and promote therapies that have effectively treated many autism cases based upon the understanding of the effects of vaccines and how those effects lead to the neurological disturbances and symptoms associated with autism.
So, readers are welcome to visit those sites for a wealth of documentation supporting major points in this article.
Autistic children have been shown to have abnormal patterns of detoxification of heavy metals they are exposed to. They tend to hold these elements in their body rather than effectively excreting them, so hair analysis tests will often show very low levels of mercury or other heavy metals since those elements are being held in the body in certain areas where they will affect cellular metabolism. It is well known that heavy metals impair brain functioning. Lead, for example, has long been associated with mental retardation and other neurological conditions. Aluminum is found concentrated in the brains of persons with Alzheimers disease. Mercury has been associated with mental illness for so long that we have the phrase "mad hatter," which arose from the mental insanity observed in hatters who were exposed to mercury in their craft.
Since only a small fraction of children exposed to the multiple vaccinations develop autism, there are logically factors at work which make some children vulnerable to adverse response to vaccines and other children relatively invulnerable to the vaccine hazards. One significant court case concerning vaccine injury indicated that a genetic variation with the mitochondrial DNA was the source of why certain children could have the harmful response to the vaccine. In that case, it was claimed that the vaccines merely aggravated a pre-existing mitochondrial disorder. That claim, accepted by the court, contains a major unproven assumption - that the mitochondrial disorder was manifest before the vaccinations were administered. Since the mitochondrial anomaly was found only after the vaccinations and autism diagnosis, there's no evidence to determine that it was present before the vaccinations. It's quite plausible that there was a latent vulnerability in the mitochondrial DNA that became activated by the vaccine exposures, and there would have to be genetic testing done across sizeable population samples before children are vaccinated in order to draw a clear conclusion about causality.
A very interesting theory about how vaccines trigger health problems arises from the research of Dr. Leonard Horowitz (author of DNA: Pirates of The Sacred Spiral). Horowitz cites research showing how vaccines bypass our natural immune response and inject viral material with foreign DNA directly into our blood. This leads to confusion and emergency reactions by the immune system, which can foster autimmune illnesses and damage resulting from the body's attempt to attack or suppress cells contaminated with the viral DNA materials. With autism, gastro-intestinal dysfunctions are very common, and the viral materials associated with common vaccines are often found in the gastrointestinal tract. Autistic children have often responded well to enzyme and probiotic therapies. Enzymes aid digestion, as do probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that live symbiotically in the intestinal tract. If the body is unable to produce its own enzymes to assimilate food components then those components can become toxic materials in the body. Wheat protein (gluten) and milk protein (casein) are two substances that many autistic individuals can't break down properly, and which produce morphine-like chemicals that would affect the brain in ways that promote autistic symptoms. Wheat and dairy-free diets have helped many children have dramatic recoveries from autism, though that is not a factor in every case of autism. Food allergies and sensitivities are often part of the chain reaction triggered by vaccines that leads to autistic symptoms.
This story becomes even more interesting when you consider the research and ideas of author Sol Luckman (Conscious Healing: The Regenetics Method). Luckman was a healthy, active young man with a successful career in academia until he received immunizations associated with travel overseas. Then, his body began to breakdown as allergies and autoimmune disturbances overtook him and debilitated him. Luckman began to investigate a wide range of healing modalities, including some holistic energy-based allergy elimination techniques. His explorations and experiences led him to develop a system called Regenetics, which is designed to use sound frequencies, chants, and intention to heal one's genetic blueprint. Russian researchers have been especially active in examining how frequencies and consciousness influence DNA, and Luckman's process is not merely a mystic's dream but is grounded in solid principles of how DNA actually functions. Most importantly, Luckman's Regenetics has been effective in helping him recover his robust health and in assisting many others with addressing serious health challenges. Having taken Regenetics practitioner training with Luckman myself I was impressed by the appearance of his health and the strength of his mind and his genius in developing this healing approach. One key part of Luckman's conclusions about vaccines is that the body actually intelligently seeks to neutralize genetically compromised cells by using heavy metal toxins it has accumulated to poison those cells.
Thus, using therapies that address the genetic corruption in combination with therapies to chelate and detoxify the body from the heavy metals while repairing the digestive system with enzymes and probiotics and dietary modification would be a thorough approach to healing autism. Using any of these approaches individually has some success, but doesn't produce dramatic healings for everyone. Recently, I became aware of a case of a man who took his daughter to Costa Rica to get stem cell treatment for autism, and the treatment was successful, with his daughter showing a dramatic recovery. This case was feature on local television here in Miami http://www.justnews.com/health/14253344/detail.html
Now, looking even deeper into the autism puzzle, we can ask how the genetic vulnerabilities arise. My perspective on that is that we exist as fields of consciousness and energy, and disturbances in those fields are imprinted on our genetics. If we could repair and balance our energy fields and patterns of consciousness then the genetics would be automatically transformed. Dr. Bruce Lipton, the author of The Biology of Belief, has described how our thoughts and feelings regulate our genetic expression. Thus, autism and other health issues can be healed and resolved in the realm of consciousness and energy, which is where shamans, energy healers, and other metaphysical healers often may be able to assist.
