Does cultured food help autism?


I am sharing this mother’s story on benefits of using cultured foods to help her son’s autism.  We have personally used kefir for a short time but then stop.  This is worth looking at again!!

 

Her name was Mary and she changed my life the day I met her. It was the very beginning of my journey with cultured foods, and I was in hiding with my newfound knowledge. People didn’t understand what I was doing, and the thought of letting food ferment on your counter for days at a time . . . well, it sounded crazy to people and they let me know they thought I was nuts. So I decided I wasn’t going to tell anyone what I was doing. Nobody could have convinced me that these foods were bad. They had healed and made me well and I was so grateful. My own body had showed me the power of making probiotic foods and there was no turning back for me. But I didn’t like the ridicule, so I kept quiet until one day I met Mary. Our kids were in a drama class together, and I had brought some cultured vegetables and kefir with me to class. When she saw it, she asked me what it was, her eyes lit up, and I thought, “Oh no, here it comes.” But instead, she started sharing with me how these foods had changed her boys who were severely autistic. So miraculous was the change in her boys that I could hardly tell they had any tendency towards autism. They were bright and smart and I loved them. She shared with me her journey and how much these foods had helped her boys, along with exercise and therapy, and we became fast friends. Every week we would sit and talk about bacteria and all it could do. Mary was so smart and had such knowledge that I sucked it up like a sponge. I finally had a friend who understood my love for microbes and it felt like pure joy to me. These foods hadn’t just changed me and my family, they’d changed Mary’s family, too, and we were on to something. The stories she told me of her boys convinced me early on that I needed to learn as much as I could about these cultured foods. Mary gave me the courage I needed to spread the good news that cultured foods worked, and for that I will always be grateful. Her life experience with autism and cultured foods was a mighty thing to behold; and years later, research is catching up with what Mary knew for sure – probiotic foods work for autism.

The trial that was so successful, it failed

One study on autism that really made an impact on me was done by food microbiologist Glenn Gibson at the University of Reading. It is referred to by some people as “the trial that was so successful, it failed.” The study was done with 40 autistic children all between the ages of 4 and 13 years. Each child was randomly placed in one of two groups. For three weeks, one group was given a probiotic supplement with the species Lactobacillus plantarum, which is abundant in cultured vegetables. The other children were given a placebo. After three weeks, the researchers planned to switch what each group was receiving, supplement or placebo. However, the parents of the children taking the probiotic saw such positive results that they knew which group they were in and refused to switch to the placebo. They saw too many improvements in not only digestive health but also mental and behavioral health that they said it was heartbreaking to have to stop their child from taking the probiotic. The children were calmer and had a greater ability to listen and concentrate. The trial had such a large dropout rate that it was discontinued. 1

In another study, which was done on mice at the California Institute of Technology, researchers found that mothers who had an induced infection or inflammation during pregnancy had offspring with autism-like behaviors, such as social avoidance, anxiety, repetitive actions, and GI disorders. The researchers fed these mice Bacteroides fragilis, a bacterium that has been used as probiotic therapy in animals with GI disorders and is also found in a healthy human gut. The result? The behavior of the treated mice changed. They were more likely to interact with other mice, had reduced anxiety, and were less likely to become aggressive. 2

Different gut flora in autistic children

Kids with autism have bee found to have different gut flora. The pathogenic bacteria called “Clostridia,” as well as the lesser-known bacteria called Sutterrella was abundant in their guts.  One study done by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s Nisonger Center 2017 4  showed that restoring the gut flora with a mixture of healthy bacteria can help change GI disorders that often accompany autism, and there is also a huge brain-gut connection in which microbes play a big part. Not only does bacteria help us digest our meals properly, but as the microbes break down food, they release waste products that travel through our bloodstream to the brain and impact our mood by stimulating the vagus nerve which affects the brain. Many of the bacteria waste products are neurotransmitters that have the ability to influence our moods in both those with autism and those without it. Anxiety, depression, hostility, and improving problem solving can often be helped greatly by changing the bugs in our gut. Certain bacteria in the gut release serotonin and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), both of which can change the mood. I have witnessed this first hand.

Mary fed her boys tons of kefir and cultured vegetables and they got lots of exercise which helps your microbes, too. Those boys transformed, and not just a little; it turned their lives around. I have another story that a mom sent to me that I’d love to share with you. You can also find her story on my Lives Touched page.

Rebecca shares her story in her own words.

“Hi there, Donna! I bought milk kefir grains from you back in early 2014 after watching your moving testimonial video. My son, Hudson, was 4 years old at the time and had recently received a PDD-NOS diagnosis (which is a non-specific autism spectrum diagnosis) and I was desperately researching possible causes of this frustrating syndrome. He was always a sweet child but had chronic constipation, behavioral problems, and severe learning disabilities. When I started him on milk kefir, he was only able to label people and things when I pointed to them; that was the extent of his communication abilities. The first night after giving both of us kefir in the form of chocolate protein shakes, I put him in bed with me out of fear of the dreaded Herxheimer reaction. I had some mild reactions myself, but what was very scary for me was waking up to Hudson wheezing and sounding like he couldn’t get any air into his lungs. I jumped up, put on shoes and buckled him into his car seat and we took off for the ER at the children’s hospital. Midway there, I heard a little voice singing in the backseat . . . so I pulled over, peered back at him and he was just smiling back at me and singing. That was the only day that he had a scary reaction from the die-off, but it still sticks out in my memory because it showed me the battle that was happening in his body with the introduction of an army of good bacteria. Two weeks after that day, Hudson began speaking in full sentence . . .  TWO WEEKS. I could not even believe what I was hearing! After that, I became a kefir prophet myself and my whole family started making and drinking kefir. Hudson is now almost 9 years old and is thriving! He is telling gross jokes and acting like a neuro-typical immature boy and I couldn’t be happier. In terms of his learning, he has become an avid reader and never wants us to tell him how to pronounce a difficult word . . . he tried for at least 5 minutes the other night to pronounce “unconscious” and finally allowed me to tell him, after which he repeated it incredulously and laughed hysterically. He is also a math machine and prides himself on already knowing many of his times tables. Physically speaking, we have gone from weekly enemas to address his once-chronic constipation to never needing them. We still need to get him tested for food sensitivities again, but I have let him try some foods that he was previously sensitive to and he doesn’t have as many problems as he did before.

In terms of my own kefir journey, I have not been as consistent with it, but I always notice marked improvement in my bowel habits, overall health, and my outlook on life when I’m having kefir at least every other day. I recently got a hypothyroid diagnosis, so I am taking the consistency with the kefir routine much more seriously now.

Something else that I have tried, without the advice of a doctor, just because I thought it was worth a shot, are kefir whey implant enemas. My thought stemmed from the idea of fecal transplants and the idea that if someone’s probiotic bacteria load has been ravaged by antibiotics, it will affect the entire digestive tract, not just the upper part. I don’t trust anyone enough to use their poo for that (nor would I trust the medical community to select someone suitable), so I thought of the kefir. I decided that milk solids would inflame the lower digestive system, but maybe whey would be OK? (I’m sure many people have decided I am cuckoo at this point in the story.) I started on myself first and tried one enema per week for about two months. After just two rounds, I noticed increases in energy, started feeling hungry in the morning for the first time ever, and started losing weight without even trying. I also noticed that my wedding ring got looser and my stomach stuck out less, which indicated that I was retaining less water and was, therefore, less bloated. The effect on my bowels has been astounding and has even had positive effects on my mood! My husband was so amazed by my experience that he tried it and it has cured his decades-long chronic indigestion and has allowed him to start eating certain foods he could not eat before without stomach pain and never-ending gas! There are still some foods he cannot tolerate, but the changes have been noticeable. My hope is, since these are living probiotic bacteria, that one day we won’t have to do the enemas anymore at all. For now, we are happy to do them once per week and it has almost become a competition to see whose body can produce the most happy growls and gurgles.

I hope you rest easy every night knowing that you have changed innumerable lives, many of which will never be able to thank you directly, face-to-face. Thank you for sharing your story with the world and choosing such a worthwhile vocation – to share your knowledge, experience, and life-saving probiotic cultures. Together, we can heal our sick, tired, and sad society . . . one kefir grain at a time!”

Definitely worth trying and seeing how much better you feel!!  Share your experiences with cultured foods.

Vaccine Detox Plan!


Here is a plan for a gentle vaccine detox.  Many of us know how much a simple vaccine can cause damage to your health and body!

“Regardless of what your stance on vaccines is, you should know that the ingredients in vaccines are toxic to the human body. Vaccine ingredients  include: sucrose, fructose, dextrose, potassium phosphate,  aluminum potassium sulfate, peptone, bovine extract, formaldehyde,FD&C Yellow #6, aluminum lake dye, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, aluminum hydroxide, benzethonium chloride, lactose  thimerosal, ammonium sulfate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, bovine extract), calf serum, aluminum phosphate, aluminum hydroxphosphate sulfate, and ethanol. Unfortunately, most of these ingredients accumulate in our bodies and will not leave the body without assistance.

 

A Gentle Vaccine Detox For Children and Adults

Here are some gentle detox ideas to help your body detoxify from heavy metals and other vaccine toxins and recover your health.

Detox Bath

A detox bath helps strengthen the immune system and flush out toxins that have built up in our body.

Add 6 drops of Zendocrine to your child’s bath with a few pinches of Epsom salt.

This powerful blend combines Rosemary, Cilantro, and Juniper Berry, known for their detoxifying properties and ability to support healthy liver function, while Tangerine and Geranium have purifying effects against unhealthy substances.

 

Garlic

After eating a crushed clove of garlic, a chain of metabolic events results in the release of allicin in the small intestine. Allicin  eliminates pathogens, while leaving the beneficial bacteria alone. Allicin, provides the primary healing aspects of garlic. It also binds heavy metals and helps us todetox. It’s best effects come from eating 3 or more cloves each day.

Silica

Silicic acid is an antidote for aluminum poisoning and silica as a detox agent for heavy metals.When a person consumes silica, the aluminum and the other heavy metals present in the body are passed in the urine and eliminated with it.

 

Horsetail is a great and inexpensive herbal source of silica. Additionally, foods that help keep your silica levels high are: Unrefined whole grains such as rye, barley, oats, and wheat. Alfalfa sprouts nuts, and other seeds will boost your silica levels and let you experience silica health benefits.

Chlorella

According to several strong scientific studies, chlorella helps support healthy detoxification of heavy metals from the body because it naturally binds to heavy metals which are carried out of the body through natural processes of elimination. You can take chlorella in capsule form, or just add it to smoothies.

Probiotics

Since heavy metals and other toxins tend to alter bacterial balance within the gut, supplementing with probiotic-rich foods such as organic yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut,  kombucha, fermented vegetables is very important  for detoxing and protecting against the harmful effects of vaccines.

Omega 3 Cod Liver Oil

Omega 3 fatty acids also block excitoxins while repairing cellular damage.  I give my child  one teaspoon of the Nordic Naturals Arctic Cod Liver Oil  daily, which needs to be refrigerated and used quickly in order to maintain its optimal capacity to help the body.

Cilantro 

Cilantro binds to heavy metals, pulling them from blood and body tissues, and eliminates them from the body. It  is one of the most effective and gentle detoxifiers of heavy metals and other toxic contaminants. It is excellent for extracting mercury from your body’s organs. This herb is believed to cross the blood-brain barrier and remove heavy metals from the brain.

You can juice with cilantro, add it to your smoothies, or eat it raw. Consume at least 1 teaspoon daily for 2-3 weeks or add 6-7 drops cilantro essential oil to your  bath.

Vitamins & Autism


I wanted to share this blog post with you.  I have written articles in the past about the effects of our diet on health and well-being.  All of the chemicals and additives put into the vaccinations now are causing more health problems than previously thought. Many children are struggling to maintain good health and progress than ever before.

Autism, Vitamin A and Vaccinations

Toy CarsA few weeks ago, I blogged about Vitamin D and how the rise in Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to the rise in autism, but vitamin D is not the only deficiency that has been linked to autism and some people are suggesting that a deficiency in vitamin A may be responsible.

As I have said before, the Standard American Diet is not healthy and, although we may be eating a lot and filling ourselves up, many of us are actually malnourished because our diet does not contain enough of the essential nutrients that our bodies need to function properly and for our children to develop and grow correctly. Instead our diets are high in sugar, fats, salt and empty calories. However, low fat diets can also be bad for us because by not eating an adequate amount of fat we may actually be causing our bodies to be deficient in vitamin A, which is found in foods like full fat dairy foods, liver and cod liver oil.

Autism and Vaccines

In a study entitled “Is Autism a G-Alpha Protein Defect Reversible with Natural Vitamin A?”, Mary Megson, MD, a developmental pediatrician, argues that “Autism may be a disorder linked to the disruption of the G-alpha protein, affecting retinoid receptors in the brain” and that some cases of autism may be caused by “inserting a G-alpha protein defect, the pertussis toxin found in the D.P.T. vaccine, into genetically at-risk children”. This study also argues that the live viral measles vaccine (MMR) depletes a child’s existing supply of vitamin A and so has a negative impact on the retinoid receptors in the brain.

Megson, in an article entitled “Autism and Vaccinations”, reports that this G-Alpha protein defect causes:-

  • Night blindness
  • Problems seeing light-to-dark shading
  • Problems perceiving what they are seeing – Children try to make sense of things by lining up toys, sorting objects by color etc.
  • Avoidance of eye contact – Megson believes that this is because the child is trying to get light to “land off center in the retina”.
  • Hypersensitivity – A gentle touch can feel rough, common sounds can sound harsh.

Is Vitamin A the Answer?

Megson writes of how she has been treating autistic children effectively with cod liver oil, a source of vitamin A retinol, to “bypass blocked G protein pathways and turn on these central retinoid receptors”. She reports that there were marked improvements in the children in just a few days, including improved eye contact and better vision and perception. After two months of this vitamin A treatment, the children were given a single dose of a drug called bethanechol, to stimulate pathways. These children were then able to talk, laugh, focus and concentrate – a huge improvement!

Research like this really does emphasize the need to give our children a nutrient rich diet and to make sure that we make up for any potential deficiencies with supplements. Cod liver oil is great for children because it is a great source of vitamins D and A (deficiencies have been linked to autism), omega 3 essential fatty acids, and it also offers us the following benefits:-

  • Improved blood flow
  • Reduced risk of coronary heart disease
  • Stronger bones and teeth
  • Better vision
  • Healthier skin
  • Healthy joints
  • Healthy brain development

There are many different types of cod liver oil supplements available for children – syrups, capsules, chewy tablets etc., so you’re bound to find one that your child likes and will take without any problem.

Missourians: Please call Senators today!!!


HB 557, a bill protecting the rights of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children, is still NOT on the calendar.  If it doesn’t get on today the calendar today then it is guaranteed to NOT become law this year, and we NEED this protection!

If you have called Senator Dempsey, thank you.  I am asking that you call again.  If you have not called him, NOW is your chance.

Senator Dempsey will not be in Jefferson City for the last two days of this legislative session, Thursday and Friday.  He is the one in charge of deciding what goes onto the Senate Calendar, so we must act right away!

Please make a brief and polite phone call to Senator Dempsey, the president pro tem, urging him to get this bill onto the senate calendarTODAY for a third read and a vote.  His office number is (573) 751-1141.  You don’t need to necessarily speak to the senator.  A message with his staff would be sufficient.

I would also encourage you to contact your own senator and encourage him to speak to Senator Dempsey about the importance of getting this bill on the calendar.  You can look up your senator here.

Here are some ideas of what you could say to Senator Dempsey and to your senator…

Families are counting on you to get HB 557 onto the Senate calendar!  Please place this bill on the Senate calendar so that there is an opportunity to protect parental rights in statute this session!

OR

Families are the backbone of the state of Missouri!  Please put HB 557 on the Senate calendar today to move the protection of parental rights forward.

Thank you,

Is autism and vaccine spectrum disorder the same?…..


I meant to post this article a while back, sorry it took so long.  Something to think about……

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“What is vaccine spectrum disorder and why is it called autism?  by: S. D. Wells  Sunday, June 29, 2014

Vaccine spectrum disorder (VSD) is the disorder children get from receiving too many vaccines too close together, many of which are combinations of viruses, bacteria and toxic adjuvants. VSD is purposely misdiagnosed and renamed autism spectrum disorder so that the vaccine industry can continue with its toxic regimen that creates customers for life. The vaccine schedule is leading to a broad array of disorders and ‘spectrum’ is just a pharma buzz word to keep the public from staring right at the REAL problem, which is that we are injecting toxins into muscle tissue, including aluminum and mercury, over and over again during the first six years of a child’s life.

Vaccine Spectrum Disorder is sweeping the nation

Some babies, as soon as they enter our world, are given toxic vaccines that contain MSG and formaldehyde meant to conjure an immune response, but, instead, basically the entire nervous system of the baby goes into shock. Today, DNA is altered in labs and mixed with bacteria, live viruses, human albumin and chemicals used to embalm dead people before being injected up to 30 times into children before they reach the age of seven. The medical industrial complex calls it a wide “spectrum” disorder so that it can be treated with drugs (more chemicals) that will never heal the child and will, most likely, create more health detriments.

The most common jabs

Measles Live Virus Vaccine: (Attenuvax) Two injections are given; one at one-year-old and another at four-years-old. Contains gelatin, sorbitol, sodium chloride, bovine cow serum, egg protein and human albumin. Measles and Mumps Live Virus Vaccine: (M-M-Rvax) Injected into one-year-old babies. Contains gelatin, sorbitol, sodium chloride, bovine cow serum and human albumin.

Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio Vaccine: Five injections given between the ages of two and six, plus boosters “recommended” every 10 years. Contains formaldehyde and aluminum phosphate.

DTaP, IPV, HBV and Hib: (Diphtheria, tetanus, polio, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenza type B) Given to infants two months to 12 months with boosters less than a year later. Contains formaldehyde and bovine cow serum.

Gardasil HPV: (Human Papillomavirus vaccine). Administered to children as young as nine for a rare, sexually transmitted disease. Contains a weakened form of the virus.

Flu shots: The CDC advises on the flu insert not to get more than ONE flu shot in a lifetime.

The spectrum of toxic vaccine ingredients

Thimerosal: Neurotoxic mercury that causes autism. There are 25 mcg in an average flu vaccine, even though the EPA safety limit is 5 micrograms. That’s 10 times the safety limit all at once!

Aluminum phosphate: Increases the toxicity of mercury.
Bovine cow serum: Extracted from cow skin. A cause of arthritis and lupus.

Sorbitol: A synthetic sweetener that causes gastrointestinal issues.

Gelatin: Derived from collagen in animals’ skin and bones and may contain BSE, which is Mad Cow Disease!

Sodium Chloride: Raises blood pressure.

Egg protein: May contain growth hormones, antibiotics and salmonella.

Human albumin: Blood protein from pooled human venous plasma, which can contain diseases.

Formaldehyde: Carcinogenic fluid used to embalm the dead.

MSG: Monosodium glutamate -when injected becomes a neurotoxin, causing CNS disorder and brain damage.

One in every 68 children has a form of the spectrum. Questioning the toxins in vaccines is the first order of business. Do you have VSD? Contact your local naturopathic physician. After all, there ARE doctors out there who DON’T believe in injecting toxins in order to build immunity.

UN Treaty for Disabled Children is on the ballot again for June 3rd-4th, 2013


I want to take some time to explain to those who do not understand what this treaty will do if it is passed.  Right now the law states that parents have the right and responsibility to care for their children and loved ones who are disabled.  If this bill is passed all decisions for their education, healthcare, and maybe even guardianship will be made by the government.   If you do NOT have a disabled child or loved one at this time, please be in mind that at any time if someone you love has an accident that can render them “disabled” in the legal aspect you will then fall into this bracket.

I recently spoke with a grandmother whose grandchild suffered an injury to the neurological system, even though this treaty has not passed she is already fighting the system to get care for her grandchild.  Anytime you then seek therapy, medical supplies or maybe even legal guardianship this is where this treaty will come into place; your rights as a parent or guardian will at that time be challenged and ignored in the interest of either money or power.  I know of parents who have requested no vaccinations or other health care because of a negative reactions their child had but only to be ignored or had to find another physicians.  If/When this treaty passes there will be no other options for your child if it is deemed that your child “must” have the services that are being required.

If you are not a follower of my blog you can go to the post about applying for guardianship of a disabled loved one if they are under the age of 18, this information was shared with me by another parent of an autistic child. https://myautismjourney.wordpress.com/2012/11/27/applying-for-guardianship-by-age-17-and-the-topic-of-wills/

The article below explains this bill in further detail:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“UNCRPD is back. We MUST contact our US Senators and let them know that we do NOT like this treaty. They will be discussing it and voting very soon, June 3rd & 4th.

Thank Sen. Blunt for opposing the UNCRPD the last time it was up for ratification, andENCOURAGE HIM TO OPPOSE IT AGAIN. His number is 202-224-5721. Sen. McCaskill voted for the ratification last time. We need her to oppose it this time. Her number is 202-224-6154

Need some talking points? I’ve listed some below:

Although the UNCRPD has the word “disabilities” in its title, the treaty never defines what is meant by “disability.” Without defining this, it cannot be known how broadly the treaty will apply.

The Supremacy Clause in Article VI of the U.S. Constitution ensures that ratified treaties are equal in status to federal law and the U.S.
Constitution and supersede state laws and constitutions. Some of this treaty is the same as the Americans with Disabilities Act, but much of the treaty is quite different and would undermine U.S. law.

Article 7, Section 2 of the treaty states: “In all actions concerning children with disabilities, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.” (Emphasis added.) This language is also found in the UNCRC and underscores the necessity of a Parental Rights Amendment. If a government’s assessment of the child’s best interests differs from that of the parents, the government gets to make the decision, not the parents. Current law states that the only situation in which the government decides what is best for a child is in divorce or abuse/neglect situations, which is as it should be.

Article 24 specifically tasks states with the responsibility to make sure that disabled children are educated in environments “which maximize academic and social development.” This, along with Article 7, Section 2, means that nothing could prevent government officials from overriding parental wishes to homeschool their disabled child.

Government-funded abortion: Article 23 of the treaty states, “The right of all persons with disabilities … to have access to…reproductive and family planning education are recognized, and the means necessary to enable them to exercise these rights are provided.” (Emphasis added.) Again, with the treaty never defining what is meant by a disability, it is unknown how far-reaching this article could be.

Article 46 states “Reservations incompatible with the object and purpose of the present Convention shall not be permitted.” So this treaty is all or none. Any Reservations, Understandings, or Declarations (RUDs) attempting to declare that this treaty does not change U.S. Law are simply unenforceable.

The Americans with Disabilities Act already does a tremendous job in protecting the rights of persons with disabilities. It would be a disservice to them to ratify an international treaty that is inferior to this Act, but would now supersede it. If it is ever found that our own law is failing to meet the needs of persons with disabilities, it is the legislatures’ role to enact laws on their behalf, not to ratify a treaty that would diminish their protection. Thank you for your time and consideration. I urge you to OPPOSE the ratification of the UNCRPD.”

Government funded phone app for “vaccine refusers”


I just received an email of this article, again please research for yourself:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Government Funded Phone App Tracks “Vaccine Refusers”

 

A new phone application called ‘Vaccine Refused’ developed by the University of Iowa tracks – just as the name implies – vaccine refusals. [1]

The application is intended to be used by health professionals to report the location of the refusal, the vaccine refused, and patient demographics. The output of the data, which is supposedly anonymous and stored securely at the University of Iowa, provides a heat map of the refusals.

I’m going to show you how the government will likely use this information – and it isn’t pretty. Let me tell you more.

Application is Government Funded.

To understand the importance of this particular application, we need to know how it is being funded and who is leading the research. This will give us a clue as to how the data will likely be used.

The research for the phone application is led by Dr. Philip Polgreen, Director of Infectious Disease Society of America’s Emerging Infections Network. [2]

Why is this significant?

According to the IDSA’s website, “In 1995, the CDC [Centers for Disease Control] granted a Cooperative Agreement Program award to the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) to develop a provider-based emerging infections sentinel network: the Emerging Infections Network (IDSA EIN).” [3]

The project’s main University of Iowa page clearly states the research is funded by the National Institutes of Health and by a contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. [4]

So now we know the lead researcher for the phone application has direct ties to the Centers for Disease Control as well receiving funds for the research.

Here’s the important point…

Vaccine Refused Application is Technology Black Boxing.

This is your typical “black boxing” effort in developing tracking technology. By this I mean very simply, two separate technologies are being developed and will be combined to form a system at a later date.

An analogy would be the designing of a car. The engine, steering, and breaking system are all developed separately but then combined in the manufacturing process to make a car.

Much in the same way, an application tracking vaccine refusals may seem harmless on the surface. However, the Centers for Disease Control are collecting other data.

In a recent article, I wrote about how the CDC collects information on who vaccinates their children and who does not. They also know how many children have opted out of being vaccinated. [5]

If you didn’t know, the Centers for Disease Control has been quietly rolling out a nationwide program called the Immunization Information Systems (IIS), registering your vaccine information (and if you refuse or not) into databases. [6]

But what would happen if data from the phone application was combined or analyzed with vaccine registry information?

The Correlation of Data.

Here’s what you need to know.

The government (along with corporations) collects, correlates, and tracks data about you. I highly recommend a very informational article written by Information Security expert Bruce Schneier.

He writes, “Governments are happy to use the data corporations collect – occasionally demanding that they collect more and save it longer – to spy on us. And corporations are happy to buy data from governments. Together the powerful spy on the powerless, and they’re not going to give up their positions of power, despite what the people want.” [7]

The CDC’s Immunization Information System already tracks your vaccine refusals. If you recall from the last article, a small amount of the data collected included: the patient’s name, birth date, mother’s name, home address and phone number, and vaccine provider.

How easy would it be to correlate any “refuser” data and make a map out of it with home addresses? It seems the Vaccine Refused application can accomplish this task quiet easily.

Researchers at the University of Iowa say the data collected by the application is secure and anonymous. You and I should know better; this could be changed with the stroke of the pen.

Heck, the CDC is paying for the research. Are you sure there isn’t a hidden agenda?

Conclusion

George Washington can be quoted as saying, “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”

What happens if we take the intention of the Vaccine Refused phone application and Immunization Information System to its conclusion? Will these technologies be used to track you down and forcibly vaccinate you and your children?

It sure seems that way to me.

New Study shows infant monkeys given vaccines develop autism symptoms


Several online news sources are now reporting what many of us with family or friends on the autism spectrum know, that vaccines (or more the chemicals and number of chemicals given at one time) can cause autism in children.  Until our son started having developmental problems, we did not consider the amount of chemicals that we were allowing in his symptoms while doing a well-child checkup.  Our family firmly believes that the Heavenly Father created our body to fight infections and health problems on its own.  The only time that we need to step in and assist is if the situation is going on too long and the body itself is overwhelmed, by this stage you will be overcome with many health issues as it is that sometimes just plan sleeping or rest which will allow the body to focus on the virus or illness, will overcome your health issues.  When young children are exposed to multiple chemicals in our food, vaccines, environment etc., then our body cannot overcome them on their own quickly.  

If you choose to vaccinate your child, by all means RESEARCH and know beforehand what is going into your child.  Once the damage is done it will be very difficult if not impossible to repair!  If your child has a side effect and/or health problems seek a health practitioner who can help you.  A vaccination awareness group I am a part of have multiple stories of children who develop rashes or developmental problems only to be dismissed by the health care system or primary care physician.

Following a recent study conducted by scientists at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania which revealed that many infant monkeys given standard doses of childhood vaccines as part of the new research,developed autism symptoms, question marks over the ultimate safety of vaccines have come to the fore.

The groundbreaking research findings presented at the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) in London, England, have revealed that young macaque monkeys given the typical CDC-recommended vaccination schedule from the 1990s, and in appropriate doses for the monkeys’ sizes and ages, tended to develop autism symptoms. Theirunvaccinated counterparts, on the other hand, developed no such symptoms, which points to a strong connection between vaccines and autism spectrum disorders.

This development which deconstructs mainstream myth that vaccines are safe and pose no risk of autism, was brought on by after studies on the type of proper safety research on typical childhood vaccination schedules that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) should have conducted — but never has — for such regimens.

Included in the mix were vaccines containing Thimerosal, a toxic, mercury-based compound that has been phased out of some vaccines, but is still present in batch-size influenza vaccines and a few others.

Also administered was the controversial measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, which has been linked time and time again to causing autism and various other serious, and often irreversible, health problems in children.

“This research underscores the critical need for more investigation into immunizations, mercury, and the alterations seen in autistic children,” said Lyn Redwood, Director of SafeMinds, a public safety group working to expose the truth about vaccines and autism.
“SafeMinds calls for large scale, unbiased studies that look at autism medical conditions and the effects of vaccines given as a regimen.”

Adding to the sentiment, Theresa Wrangham, president of SafeMinds called out the CDC for failing to require proper safety studies of its recommended vaccination schedules. Unlike all other drugs, which must at least undergo a basic round of safety testing prior to approval and recommendation, vaccinations and vaccine schedules in particular do not have to be proven safe or effective before hitting the market.

“The full implications of this primate study await publication of the research in a scientific journal,” said Wrangham. “But we can say that it demonstrates how the CDC evaded their responsibility to investigate vaccine safety questions. Vaccine safety oversight should be removed from the CDC and given to an independent agency.””

More research in support of Omega 3’s helping autism – Chia Seeds


I have written posts in the past discussing the benefits of Omega 3‘s helping autism.  An article I received recently discussed the benefits of consuming Chia Seeds for autistic children and helping with brain function.  One of the main issues we have in educating our son is the lack of retention.  He can pick up things here and there but for the most part we are relearning items every day.  I don’t know if this will help as I haven’t tried it with my son but I found this article in relation to that and hemp and thought I would share in case it helps someone else.

Autism cures – especially natural autism cures – are becoming increasingly sought after

as the autism rate in the US and across the world continues to climb. While the exact causes of autism are still being researched (with Big Pharma vaccines already being a confirmed suspect), scientific studies are now bringing to light a new connection between autism and omega 3 fatty acid deficiency. Yasmin Neggers, professor of human nutrition, conducted a matched case control study in Korea, comprised of 29 autistic boys, who ranged in age from 8 to 11 years old (as well as a control group of 29 comparably healthy boys). She measured the children’s total cholesterol, high-density cholesterol, low density lipoprotein, LDL/HDL ratio, total fatty acid concentrations, as well as their omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid levels.

Remarkably, the study showed that autistic children had much lower omega 3 levels compared to healthy children, especially levels of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Not only that, but the autistic children also had a significantly lower ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids than the healthy children. Thus, it was discovered that autistic children exhibited an omega 3 deficiency – which makes sense, because it is exactly these omega 3 fatty acids which build nerve and brain tissues, and affect motor coordination. The professor concluded that omega 3 fatty acid deficiency is now a strong predictor of autism, and she is not the only one – there have numerous other randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trialswhich came to the same conclusion.

If you’re looking for a natural cure for autism (or Asberger’s or any of the autism spectrum disorders), forget side effect-laden Big Pharma drugs and look instead to Mother Nature and her array of super foods. There are two remarkable and outstanding sources of omega 3 fatty acids that could be the solution. Chia seeds are an exceptionally high source of easily digestible omega 3 fatty acids, as well as being a powerhouse of nutrition, very high in minerals and boasting an almost the complete protein spectrum (19 out of 22 amino acids). Hemp seeds are another phenomenal source of omega 3 fatty acids, as well as containing the ideal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 (3:1), something which virtually no other food does. Together, taken on a daily basis, super food chia and hemp seeds can counter any omega 3 deficiencies, build healthy nerve and brain tissue, and restore the body’s correct and optimal balance of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.

Chia and hemp may the best natural way to deal with autism until more research is done. It is too early to say if they could become an autism cure, but if I were a parent of an autistic child, I would certainly give them a go.Super foods have been known to cure many diseases, including cancer, that Western Medicine has falsely stated were incurable.”

MMR Vaccine and Autism Case won in Federal Court


There have been several news reports and debates regarding whether vaccines cause autism and other health issues lately.  This email was sent to me and I am passing it on to you to help further your fight in protection of your child.  Stay strong and be aware of any ill side effects from medications or vaccines (if you choose to administer them)!!

MMR vaccine and autism case won in Federal Court, per………….

Tell Congress that Vaccine Court Has Ruled CA Boy has Autism from MMR

This isn’t supposed to happen.

It happened again. The federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
(VICP) has awarded Ryan Mojabi and his family a multi-million dollar settlement for autism as the result of an injury from the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine. Ryan’s family joins Hannah Poling and at least 85 others who have received judgments for vaccine-induced autism from the VICP. These people aren’t supposed to exist. We are told again and again that vaccines cannot cause autism, vaccines have never caused autism, and vaccines never will cause autism. Except when they do.

Here is the link to the settlement document.

Please click on the Take Action Link to share this information with your elected representatives in Washington, and ask them to support further hearings into why this thing that supposedly cannot exist keeps on happening. As we saw in the vaccine hearing in November, many members of Congress are clearly skeptical of both the competence and truthfulness of the autism bureaucracy.

And remember Andrew Wakefield lost his medical license for suggesting that there may be a connection between autism, the MMR and bowel disease, and that further study was warranted (but people should continue to immunize. )

To learn more about the documented VICP cases of compensated VICP injury cases read. “Unanswered Questions, A Review of Compensated Cases of Vaccine-Induced Brain Injury”. More than 80 cases were documented in a review of the relatively few VICP cases that are available to the public.

Please share this message with friends and family and please post it to Facebook and other social networks.
