PREVENTING AUTISM – WHAT THE PARENTS SAY

6 Comments

This is a video we found on Recovering Kids, a website owned by Regarding Caroline.

Recovering Kids asked the members of their group what can be done to stop the increasing numbers of children being diagnosed with autism. Their answers give valuable insight to anyone who is terrified of the epidemic that is changing the face of a generation of children…. currently one in every 50 children is affected by autism.

We wish we would have had this advice before our children were born.

Do you have advice to add?

We’d love to hear from you – parents who are living with autism every day. We respect your opinions and have learned more from you than from our pediatricians. Please write to us and let us know your best advice. We would like to publish your responses to help other parents who are just beginning their journey with autism.

A Ventography is about: 1. Encouraging and empathizing with other parents on the autism spectrum. 2. Recycling and simplifying information on the latest autism news and health and diet tips. 3. Asking thought provoking questions designed to make us rethink what we've been told about autism. 4. Helping connect the dots that show, in some cases, autism is more than a brain disorder. 5. Challenging parents to rethink what they've been told, refuse the status quo, and escape the whirlwind of confusion.

  1. I am not a parent with a child who has autism, but I have worked with children who have autism for several years. Last year, researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill in North Carolina may have found a possible cause of autism which points to an environmental cause. Keep in mind, many people have a genetic predisposition for disorders but environmental factors can either “turn on” or “turn off” these genes, a process known as gene regulation. I think you guys will find this article interesting: http://www.unc.edu/campus-updates/researchers-discover-a-possible-cause-of-autism/

  2. I find it staggering that ignorance and mumbo jumbo theories like this are still rife, especially from those with children with autism. Autism is caused by genetics, not immunisation, diets or the wrong flavoured toothpaste. And I’m frightened by a site which has a section about healing options for autism. Erm … people have to be ill to need healing.

    • Hi Anthony- we must be talking about completely different types of autism. We agree with you that some types of autism are completely genetic and that health interventions would make no difference for the symptoms. However, there is no denying that some children with autism have total body symptoms and not just a behavioral disorder. As you point out, “people have to be ill to need healing.” Let us assure you that our children were seriously ill just a few short years ago and they desperately needed healing. They had gastrointestinal symptoms, immune system deficiencies, documented viruses and bacteria, mitochondrial issues, mineral deficiencies, etc. As we made changes to improve their health, many of their symptoms of autism have gone away. In fact, Molly’s daughter no longer qualifies for a diagnosis of autism. This is the problem with the autism “spectrum” – every child is completely different. We truly believe there are many types of autism, all with a different set of causes and symptoms. We are not here to argue with you that some types of autism are genetic, but please respect the fact that our experience has been different. We know, with 100% certainty, that improving our children’s health eliminated many of their symptoms of autism. If you or any of our other readers would like know more about what we call Health Induced Autism, please visit our website, http://www.healthinducedautism.com/health-induced-autism.html. Thanks for reading. Leah & Molly
