The Saga Continues

So I watched er…listened to this video over the past couple days.  https://www.facebook.com/areyoucrooked/videos/2018168381763526/

The video is over two hours long so it took awhile to get through it.  Half of it was listening to it via Bluetooth while driving across the twin cities.  I didn’t see all the graphs and pictures but I definitely got the jist of it.

The video is made by Forrest Maready and he’s just a regular guy doing some pretty extraordinary things.  He is the dad of a child with autism and his wife has suffered with auto-immune disorders.  He’s been on a two year quest to uncover answers and this video (and a book coming out soon) is really the culmination of that.  He is very quick to point out that these are theories. 

For me it was really illuminating.  I, like many, have also suffered with auto-immune issues.  Which, I can trace back to the summer that I was 12.

Journey back in time with me to a wonderful era when the Spice Girls were huge.  The internet was confined to your clunky, slow home desktop computer.  Helicopter parenting was not yet invented.  I was a “free-range” kid before that was a thing.  We lived outside a small town in southern Minnesota and it was wonderful.  In the summer we disappeared into the woods behind our house for hours at a time.  We stayed out late catching fireflies.  We swam in a (gross) Lake Mazaska nearby.  In the winter we dug snow forts, sledded, went ice skating, all of that.  My mom always had me in sports.  I was a very athletic kid and would go to some sort of sport practice nearly every day. 527499_10152250637685074_1854436615_n

One of my favorite things to do was to explore abandoned structures with my friends.  Of course my parents didn’t know, but remember this was the 90’s and I was a free-range chicken, er….kid.  We liked to pretend an old one room school house was haunted and we’d spook ourselves silly and dare each other to go in alone.  It was great except for the time that I ended up stepping on an old nail.  It went through the sole of my shoe and pierced into the bottom of my foot.

I reluctantly told my mom who dutifully brought me in for a tetanus shot.

Now all of this was 20 years ago so this is a leap of connected memories and speculation but around that time I also developed debilitating asthma.

I had been an athlete and completely healthy.  But one night my mom said she found me in the hallway in the middle of the night wheezing for air.  I did tests which showed my lungs for very weak (all of a sudden…?) and got an inhaler and that was that.

But what if that wasn’t that?  What if that tetanus shot had just started a cascade that would continue to be unleashed?

I can also look back and see that something changed within me as well.  I had been a really happy kid.  I had a lot of friends.  But I would soon be plunged deep into depression and an eating disorder.  It was so bad that I attempted suicide multiple times as a young teen.

Now this is all speculation, of course.  But I did manage to dig up this study linking a two fold increase in asthma following tetanus vaccination https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10714532?dopt=Abstract

And this article explaining how the metals in vaccines can severely damage mental health http://whale.to/b/blaylock.html

As a young adult I mostly overcame these issues.  I forced my lungs to get stronger through progressively harder workouts.  I found faith and that helped with the mental health a lot.  I was really happy.

Then I got my pregnant with my second child and all hell broke loose.  My digestive system stopped working.  My thyroid went berserk.  I developed symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.  I saw many doctors but really had to do a ton of research myself into figuring out that I had celiac’s disease and some other food sensitivities.

The weird thing is, I grew up eating wheat and it was fine.  I probably had three-four servings a day!  But now eating it would make me curl up in a ball from the stomach pain, it would shut down my digestion, I would be too exhausted to complete basic tasks.

I remember my husband being puzzled, like, why are you so sick?  You eat healthy and take such good care of yourself.

The interesting thing I learned in the video mentioned earlier is that when aluminum (back to that again!) is injected it gets gobbled up by white bloods cells, or macrophages, if we’re being technical.  These white blood cells can lay dormant in your muscle tissue until some event triggers them to act.  An event like *ahem* pregnancy or illness, stress, surgery, etc.

That’s why so many women develop auto-immune disorders after a pregnancy.

Again these are all theories hobbled together from real research.

But if you, like me, have auto-immune issues or autism or perhaps other issues you could trace back to a vaccine- there is hope.  You can reclaim your health.  Give the video a watch.  He spend the first part talking about the bizarre phenomenon of the rise of the lopsided smile.  It sounds weird but hear him out.  He gets around to auto-immune disorders and aluminum later in the video.

It starts with doing a heavy metal detox.  You can even get testing done to check your levels if you’re not sure.

It may be as easy as drinking a silica-rich water like Fiji.  The silica water is able to safely bind to aluminum and carry it out of the body. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2216608/Drinking-litre-day-mineral-water-prevent-onset-Alzheimers-flushing-aluminium.html

Other methods include detoxing through sweating, detox baths, taking vitamin c, and supplementing glutathione.

It could be coincidence that I went from a healthy, happy kid to a suicidal, asthmatic mess within two years time of getting a tetanus shot.  IDK maybe I’m completely wrong.  If I find compelling evidence I will reverse my position and blog about that too.

In the mean time we need to really, really examine this.  Not just for the sake of our own health but the generations coming after us.  Because this is only going to continue to get worse if we don’t do something.

Our Vaccine Story

If there’s a grassroots movement any more controversial than refusing vaccines I certainly don’t know of it.  I really debated whether or not on whether to post our story because of the issue of the controversy associated with it.  The topic is incredibly polarizing and this is primarily a blog on living life as a Christ follower….but this is also something I feel incredibly passionate about.  If you don’t agree, that’s ok.  This is my story.

I had my first child, Michael, at the age of 18.  I was very young but I took the responsibility of growing a baby very seriously.  I went from a diet coke and skittles diet to eating balanced meals and lots of veggies. I took fish oil and gagged down pre-natal vitamins inspite of morning sickness.

Michael was perfect.  He was beautiful.  People would stop me on the street to comment on what a beautiful and happy baby he was.

He hit all his milestones early.  He was walking at 10 months.  He talked, he sang, he was a very happy and easy going baby.

But around the 18 month mark he underwent some extreme personality changes.  At the time I chalked it up to the fact that I had met, married and moved in with my husband very quickly and it was a LOT of change for a little kid to go through very quickly.

Michael would have uncontrollable tantrums.  Michael would bang his head violently in his crib at night.  It became difficult to bring Michael to public places because he would get completely out of control (sensory overload).  We also noticed that Michael had extreme reactions to loud noises.

At the time I was so young and knew almost nothing about autism.  This was almost 11 years ago and autism wasn’t as prevalent as it is now.

We began to realize that there was something wrong but we had no idea what.  We brought Michael out to parks frequently and there was a stark difference between him and the other kids his age.

The first time the “autism” word was introduced was when his great aunt commented that Michael acted in a similar manner as a man she worked with, and that man had autism.

As he got older he developed facial ticks.  He also developed a complete obsession with anything with a screen, especially video games.  Once we found him playing his Nintendo D.S. at five in the morning with a hollow look in his eyes.

He would say inappropriate things and seemingly overreact to the slightest touch or provocation.

I guess I always imagined that other people had special needs kids.  People that were smart and capable.  I was young and dumb.  If you can imagine a very young mom dealing with an autistic child when she knew basically nothing about the disorder- tough was an understatement.  I shudder thinking about the many times we “lost” it on Michael when we were presented with what we thought was extreme defiance and in reality Michael was coping with a traumatic brain injury.

I now believe that Michael was born healthy and so called “neuro-typical”.  I always had a strong feeling, call it mothers intuition, that that shots caused his condition.  As he grew and I realized the magnitude of his condition I turned to the modern marvel that is google.

I stayed up late reading story after story of parents claiming that their children were injured by vaccines.  Not just autism, but also SIDS and a wide variety of other issues.  Michael underwent a change that would have coincided with his 18 month check up and shots.  Unfortunately, I didn’t make the connection till years later.

They say, “safe and effective” and “reactions are 1 in a million”.  It isn’t true.  Most reactions go unreported because parents are uninformed.  They don’t know what to look for.  When the baby has a seizure a week after vaccines they don’t automatically connect the dots.  Or when somethings happens and they do confront the doctor, they are almost always brushed off and left to sort through the fallout themselves.  When a baby dies in his sleep following a well-baby check at 2 or 4 months it is ruled as SIDS and swept under the rug.

I didn’t learn till years later but pediatricians get bonuses (very large ones) from insurance companies when a certain percentage of their patients are fully vaccinated.  I was hesitant to vaccinate (I just had a bad feeling about it) but the Doctor was incredibly pushy and made it sound like my son would drop dead from an infectious disease if I didn’t get every shot, on time, plus countless boosters.  I ignored my feelings and went ahead because who was I to question established medicine?

Now I understand that Doctors are part of a very lucrative business.  The business of vaccines.  In 1989 vaccine developers were given complete immunity.  Us little people were no longer able to sue if our kid was severely injured.  Vaccines became a cash cow after that and a bunch of new ones were introduced to the schedule as quickly as possible.  It was a gold rush.  Testing was pretty minimal because vaccines are assumed to be safe and there is a strong financial incentive to assume that.  At around that time the first rumblings of autism were being heard. 1UKvV60fOjh6NLjHooUEqeA

I was born in 1986.  When I was in school we never heard of autism.  Or life-threatening peanut allergies.  Most kids were basically healthy and slim.  Health problems were very rare.

Is it a coincidence that the autism rate went from 1 in 10,000 in the 1980’s to now (some estimates put it as high as) 1 in 36?

The landscape of our schools has changed dramatically.  I know because I volunteer at my kids elementary school and you see it constantly.  Kids rock back in forth in their chairs.  Kids wear noise blocking headphones.  Kids need access to epi-pens at all times.  Teachers are stressed out trying to teach the kids while managing all the cornucopia of special needs represented in any given classroom.

It is tragically ironic that we inject our kids with so many vaccines trying to keep them healthy but they are incredibly sick, sicker than ever.

What I didn’t know back when my son was vaccinated is that these shots use aluminum in nano-particle form as an adjuvant-a substance that enhances the body’s immune response to an antigen.  They just assumed (based on ORALLY ingested) tests that the body could safely cope with and remove the toxic burden.  But ingesting and injecting are completely different ball games.  When we ingest aluminum we are able to clear it out of our systems almost completely through the natural digestive process.  But when we inject nano-particle aluminum our bodies send in white blood cells in response, which in turn surround (encapsulate) the aluminum, and then…it can travel throughout the body through our blood stream and lymphatic system.  It can and does get deposited in the brain.  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5133049/Aluminium-vaccines-cause-autism.html  Aluminum is extremely neuro-toxic and no more so than when it invades the brain of a formerly healthy infant.  Or it can get lodged into muscle tissue until a traumatic injury or sickness signals the white blood cells to come.  The blood cells come and bring in a toxic cargo along with them.  That’s why not all vaccine injuries are seen immediately.  The aluminum can hang around in the body for an indeterminate period of time before causing all kinds of damage even years later.

blah

I find that it’s common that most parents will scour nutrition labels and be careful about what they feed their children (which is good) but have no idea what is actually being injected into their children.

Most people don’t know that there is peanut proteins (hello deadly food allergy!), tissue from aborted babies, and the same toxic carcinogenic junk they use to embalm dead bodies.  If you think I am making this stuff up you can visit the CDCs website and check out the ingredients for yourself. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/additives.htm

Autism is a blanket term for “neurological damage caused by vaccines”.  We are being lied to.  if you don’t believe check this out-

https://www.naturalnews.com/046630_CDC_whistleblower_public_confession_Dr_William_Thompson.html

A top CDC scientist came out and admitted that they had lied about the correlation they had found between the MMR shot and autism.  They purposefully fudged the data the hide the link.  Because admitting that they caused nothing less than a modern day holocaust on our babies is not something that they are going to do.

That explosive news never made it to main stream media.  Why?  Have you ever watched CNN or Foxnews?  It’s constant drug advertisements.  The pharmaceutical companies hold major sway in what stories see the light of day.

Are we all going to die if we don’t vaccinate? 22046511_10159471036940074_8637741367936285939_n I didn’t vaccinate my youngest and so far she hasn’t started any epidemics.  In fact she has no allergies, eczema, has never had an ear infection, and on and on.

Depending on where you live the only real threat is in getting measles.  Which contrary to popular, media-hyped, belief- is easily treated with mega doses of vitamin A.

Now research is showing that vaccines aren’t as effective as originally thought.  That measles outbreak at Disneyland?  Half of them were fully vaccinated.  Mumps outbreak amongst Norwegian college kids?  All fully vaccinated. http://sciencenordic.com/mumps-outbreak-hits-students-several-norwegian-cities

flu shotSo why risk injecting these toxic cocktails when there is no guarantee for real immunity?

Does the system really care about you or your health?  Or are you and your children being used for profit?  Globally, vaccines are expected to bring in 49 billion dollars next year in revenue.  https://www.statista.com/statistics/265102/revenues-in-the-global-vaccine-market/

It’s really up to you and it should be.

How is Michael today?  He’s doing pretty good.  He’s extremely lucky.  The real test is will he be able to function as an adult in society and I think that he will be.

That is not to say that is hasn’t been incredibly difficult getting to this point, that Michael hasn’t had to go through much pain, struggle and heartache for a choice he didn’t make.  I can’t articulate how hard it has been for all of us.

One conversation I will never forget is one I had with someone who was very pro-vax on the internet (cause those always go so well…) in which he accused me of looking for somewhere to lay the blame so I wouldn’t have to accept responsibility myself- for being a crappy parent and causing the autism somehow, I suppose.  Other than being completely insensitive and really horrific to say to a mother of a special needs child, it was so completely untrue that it literally could not have been more wrong.

The guilt is horrible.  I feel wracked with it at night when I let my mind wander and consider what could have been.  If I’d followed my gut and not had him vaccinated.  If Michael had been allowed to develop normally.

That’s why I’m writing this blog.  Because this is my story, Michael’s story. mmmm I’m not looking to absolve myself of responsibility.  The sad truth is that my story is not unique and it’s becoming increasingly common.  I’m trying to share our story in order to warn others.  I’m telling the truth and there is power in that.  Even if only one person has read to this point and it influences further decisions they make.

“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

 

Huge Setback

Warning: this blog contains graphic medical photos….

Gabe was doing pretty good.  The liviaone probiotic spray was really helping to clear up his skin.  He was still very much still going through TSW (topical steroid withdrawal) but still able to get out and enjoy life in a limited capacity. 20170630_133401

20170701_163413

20170630_112341
This is his feet, looking AMAZING compared to how they had looked just a week or so prior.

 

Then last Monday he started not feeling well.  Very tired, very irritable.  By Tuesday he was getting a bumpy rash and was feverish.  We assumed it was a staph infection.  When it didn’t respond to our treatment at home, my husband took him in to the emergency room.  We got a quick staph diagnosis and antibiotics and went home. 20170704_194659

He was way too sick to go anywhere for fireworks on Tuesday.

Sometime mid Wednesday we realized that he wasn’t responding to the antibiotics.  The rash of little red bumps had spread all over his body.

My Mom came over and suggested it might by measles, which I quickly dismissed.  Later I realized I knew very little about measles so I do some quick googling.  I realized that Gabe’s rash looked very similar to the typical measles rash.

20170705_114604He also had the other symptoms of headache, sore throat and tongue, fever, etc…

We brought him in to urgent care Wednesday night. The took swabs and samples and said we would know by Friday if it were measles or not.

By Friday, Gabe was still in rough shape.  The measles plus his underlying TSW made for a hellish week for everyone.  Gabe’s skin was literally peeling off.  A thick layer of dead skin would come right off to reveal still-too raw red skin underneath.  You can see this on his feet…

20170707_204127

This obviously involved a lot of pain for him- on top of the other symptoms of measles and his TSW flaring.

Yesterday I brought him in to see a pediatricion to get him something stronger for his pain.  Ibuprofen wasn’t cutting it.  When I got to the clinic the ladies at the front desk all made knowing eye with contact with each other and backed away from the desk.  Great, Gabe is the “measles kid” and everyone at the clinic has been talking about it.  He had a mask on and they were well over 15 feet away but the reacted as though I had just rolled up with a zombie-leper in that little child sized wheelchair.

We got Gabe some tramadol and vitamin A.  But at this point we still don’t have answers.  None of the four doctors who have seen him this week have ever seen measles before.  The state health department has taken over his samples and testing so that is delaying getting our answers until Monday or even Tuesday.

How did Gabe get the measles?  We don’t know for sure yet (we don’t even know 100% if it IS measles…) but just a few days prior to all this I had read about documented cases of people getting sick after coming in contact with someone who had recently been vaccinated with a live virus.  Gabe had been around a young child who just got her MMR shot in the days leading up to his illness.  It’s very possible that the child was shedding the measles virus and Gabe was susceptible due to his weakened state.

The Doctor told me that they will be able to tell if his strain of measles is wild or cultivated.  Basically if he got it through vaccine-shedding or by a random encounter with measles. 20170708_082751How has he been handling this?  Not well.  It was a huge setback, not just physically but psychologically.  For a little boy who’s been through so much.  This was just too much.  Several times, when the pain was really bad, he talked about just wanting to die so he didn’t have to be suffering anymore.

As a parent there just isn’t much worse.

We are holding to our faith and the power of prayer.  We tell Gabe continuously that he is going to get better.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel.  That God loves him and is going to cause all this suffering to work for his good.

He’s still very much in the thick of it so if you could take a moment and pray for his complete healing, that would mean so much to us.

Thank you.

Autism and Detoxing

I’ll be totally honest, this has been the first summer break I haven’t dreaded. Why? Because my oldest child, Michael, is on the autism spectrum with a side of A.D.D. It’s difficult to understand the strain and chaos that can entail if you don’t have a child on the spectrum.

That’s why I’ve always felt like I needed the break I get when he’s going to school everyday. Michael, like many other ASD kids, does best with structure and routine. Summer break just unravels all of that and leads to…well, stress that was enough to make me dread it months out.

I honestly haven’t this year, at all. Michael has made major progress. He’s been taking silica everyday and I think it has really helped.

See, I’ve done a ton of research (yes, I’m a proud google-mamma) and I believe all his neurological symptoms are a result of the synergistic toxicity described in this pub med study… https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3170075/ and others.

I had Michael very young and I did everything wrong. He got all his vaccines, and always with Tylenol.  It’s kind of a miracle he didn’t end up in worse shape.

But anyways the cumulative toxin overload essentially poisoned his brain and the resulting autistic symptoms were merely the result of cumulative vaccine injury.  He developed primarily sensory and behavioral issues.  Unlike other kids, we thankfully haven’t had to deal with food allergies, asthma, or gut problems resulting from his vaccine-injury.

Sierra….where’s your proof? I never had a dramatic event following a vaccine.  Michael never had a seizure or lethargy (that I can remember). He just went from being a sweet, bubbly, laid-back baby to a completely out of control toddler with major sensory issues. 192254_10150438180300074_8167383_o

I’ve no doubt in my mind that Michael was born perfect. The vaccines set him up for years of heartache and struggle….not to mention putting an enormous stress burden on myself and my husband in dealing with the fall-out.  His autism is nothing more than the degree of vaccine injury that was inflicted onto him as an infant.

For years I had heard about detoxing to reverse autism but I always assumed it was ridiculously complicated and out of reach for an average parent like me.  I just didn’t have a ton of hope that Michael could get better.  We dealt with the same behaviors and tantrums for years.  But then I saw this article http://realfarmacy.com/mineral-waters-remove-aluminum-from-brain/ …Detoxing and improving neurological health in ASD kids could be as simple as drinking a bottle of Fiji water every day.

I talked with Michael about it.  Smart kid that he is, he read the article and really wanted to give it a go.

There’s a big push in the autism community that we need to celebrate our kids autism and act like everything is a-ok.  Michael doesn’t think everything has been great.  Not when he didn’t have any friends at elementary school for two years.  Not when he struggles to control strong emotions he can’t always understand.  Not when he started to realize he was different.

He was extremely gung-ho to start, to the point that he begged me to get him a big supply of Fiji water.  It was touching and also kind of sad that he wanted so badly to gain healing from his autism.  We started right away and also bought him solgar’s oceanic silica (because everyone kept drinking his water!).

That was about three months ago and Michael has made major progress.  The tantrums have been less.  He seems more relaxed and happy.  He is just easier to be around.  Hence me not dreading summer vacation. 19055433_10158911764265074_4485162110289028260_o  I don’t think autism is something to be celebrated.  It has been like a cloud hanging over Michael, obscuring who he really is.  We owe it to our kids to help them to truly heal, so they can become that person they were meant to be.

What causes autism?  It seems glaringly clear to me.  It’s the synergistic toxicity (and the sheer volume) of the shots kids receive.  As the vaccine schedule has doubled and then tripled; autism rates have exploded.  It’s the toxins we spray so we can have pretty, bug-free lawns.  It’s the franken-food we eat.  It’s low vitamin D levels.  It’s the mthfr gene expression which makes it harder for some kids to detox the harmful adjuvants in the vaccines.

When 1 in 3 kids have a chronic health condition- we need to wake up.  In spite of (or because of!) our current vaccine schedule; kids are sicker than ever.  Somethings got to give when the projected autism rate is 50% of American children by 2025. http://www.inquisitr.com/1735694/autism-will-afflict-half-of-the-american -children-by-2025-and-glyphosate-is-to-blame-mit-doctor-says/

Autism, Allergies, and Eczema…Oh My!

untitledI do randomly blog on health issues, because it is very important to me.  I’ve blogged before on my boys’ health issues.  My oldest son, Michael, is diagnosed with Aspergers and A.D.D.  My younger son, Gabriel, has severe eczema and anxiety.

I read this article http://www.larabriden.com/the-inflammation-from-a1-milk-is-mind-boggling/  this morning.

Dr. Lara Briden has an awesome, informative blog.

I firmly believe that modern medicine is more about covering up symptoms than addressing the source of the problem.

I have resisted giving up milk and dairy to this point.  Hello, we are Midwestern.  We LOVE us some cheese, ice cream, and milk.  I didn’t think we had problems with milk.  But maybe I was wrong… Dr. Lara makes a very convincing argument.

It ‘clicked’ in my mind because I know as a baby I started suffering from severe ear infections at around the time when cow milk was probably introduced.  Through childhood I also had asthma, allergies, and then anxiety, depression, thyroid problems, hormonal imbalances, stomach aches, acne….the list goes on.

I know for sure I can not have gluten, soy lecithin, or carrageenan.  Do I need to add cow’s milk and dairy to the list?

I know everyone in the 70’s was fine eating white bread and margarine and veggies from a can.  Autism and food allergies were unheard of.  But could the damage have been cumulative?  Check out this infamous cat study.  http://www.spiritofhealthkc.com/portfolio/food-the-pottenger-cat-study/  He took the cats from their natural ‘whole foods’ diet and put them on processed, canned food.  The affect on the health was seen getting more severe with each generation.  Obviously, we are not cats.  But I think the massive switch from traditional foods to heavily processed foods in our culture, over the last 100 years or so, is having equally disastrous consequences.  Coupled with environmental toxins and aggressive vaccinations- our kids are paying a high cost.

I am going to try cutting out dairy for our family.  I’m going to look at goat milk options, which appears to be much more tolerable.  What can it hurt?  I would do anything to see my baby healed from eczema.

It is super overwhelming because my kids are so dang picky.  I’m just going to charge ahead and do it.  I have already seen huge improvements from eating mostly healthy, unprocessed foods.  I know diet is huge and can positively affect virtually any health issue- even mental health.

I know it is overwhelming (especially with a family) to overhaul your diet.  Easy swaps that make a huge difference-

-replace vegetables oils (yes, even canola) with olive oil, coconut oil, or butter.

-cook more food from scratch.

-try not to eat from a can (BPA).

-use sea salt in place of table salt.

-go organic and grass fed when possible.

-take vitamin D.

Thoughts on Autism

20150320_075820_resized

This is Michael.  This picture is just quintessentially him.  He staged a lego guy ‘battle’ on his lego watch.  Michael is very bright, funny, outgoing and a natural leader.  He made it into a quest program at school that is only for the brightest of the bright.  Michael loves anything techie-especially video games.  Even as a baby he was drawn to anything with a screen.  He is also a big reader, especially of anything Minecraft, Star Wars, or Percy Jackson.  He probably reads a book a day, no joke.

Michael is also diagnosed with Aspergers and A.D.D.

Things have been going really well though lately.  I decided to take him off of his stimulant A.D.D. medication recently.  He was getting tummy aches and nausea every day.  Plus the medicine was horrifically expensive with our crappy insurance (which used to be great but has steadily gotten worse since the President ‘fixed’ health insurance).

Michael has needed his meds to get through the school day.  There were many times pre-meds were I had to pick him up from school because he was so out of control.  One time multiple staff members had to physically put him in a hold until I could get there.  In first grade they brought in a team to evaluate Michael.  We had thought he had a combination of A.D.D., O.C.D., and O.D.D.  Turns out his primary thing was his aspergers.  It made so much sense when we read about the diagnosis.  It fit him to a ‘T’.

20150310_135558_resizedSo Michael has been on a stimulant to help him stay calm and focused at school.  I’ve tried natural options in the past to no avail.  So I was worried when I tried my current protocol.  But Michael does seem to be doing well at home and is reasonably calm (he is a 10 year old boy!) and I spoke to his teacher yesterday and she said he is doing really well at school- the litmus test.

So, every morning I have been giving him Now’s brand magnesium, glycine and fish oil.  It seems to work for him.  We have always gone through ‘good’ and ‘rough’ patches with Michael so we have yet to see if this will last.

On a side note I am going to come out and say it- I do believe vaccines are contributing to the exploding rates of autism.  I’ve done a lot of my own research.  There are many reasons but I don’t think it is natural or wise to inject infants with a combo of activated viruses, egg proteins, heavy metals, etc.  I have no doubts the ever growing rate of autism, food allergies, and behavioral problems are directly related to the ever growing vaccine requirements.

I do wonder if things would have been different for Michael if he had never been vaccinated.  I look back now and, as they say, hind site is 20/20.  Michael went from being a calm, relaxed, happy baby to having these extreme behavioral problems by age 2.  I pray for healing for him and all the children affected by autism.

I know it is very controversial to link autism to vaccines but we need to find out what is behind autism.  I will stand up and say that I believe vaccines are at the very least a contributing factor that cannot be overlooked.  And we need to do something fast or we are going to end up with a generation of children that have been maimed by a profit-driven healthcare industry.
