  1. Thank you, We really need to solve our Autism problem. Autism is the canary in our egregious HHS and Medical Industry coal mine.
    Doctor Deborah Ray seems to have a very important piece of the autism puzzle.
    I have been working on solving autism for decades. Here are the only things I am 100% sure of.
    o Autism is a human created problem and can be solved by humans. HHS is not human.
    o Autism is a multi-factorial problem
    o HHS and the Medical Industry has totally failed us in dealing honestly with and treating autism.
    o Individual independent doctors and just common motivated citizens are making the only real progress in autism.
    o HHS and the Medical Industry KNOW and are covering up critical autism evidence
    o If you delay ALL “vaccination” until 4 years of age you will decrease the risk of autism in your precious flesh and blood by at least 1000% – 4000%. IMO you need NEVER “vaccinate”. There is NO clinical evidence it EVER works.
    Speaking of gut problems.
    “John O’Leary, PhD a world-class researcher and molecular biologist from Ireland, using state of the art sequencing technology, showed how he had found measles virus in the gut of 96% of autistic children, compared to 6.6% of normal children. This virus did not come from the natural disease; it came from the measles vaccine.”
    “Children with neurological disorders are often suffering from severe gastrointestinal distress and inflammation. A trigger of this inflammation and the resultant behaviors is the MMR vaccine.” Fourteen Studies
    “This is the second independent study to back up Dr Wakefield. In 2001 John O’Leary, Professor of Pathology at St James’s Hospital and Trinity College, Dublin, replicated his findings. This new study confirms what we found in British children and again with Professor O’Leary. The only exposure these children have had to measles is through the MMR vaccine. ‘They were developing normally until they regressed. They now suffer autism and bowel disease.” The Great MMR Deadly Scam
    “The MMR vaccine was not adequately tested and should not have been licensed.” Journal of Adverse Drug Reactions Jan 2000, Note how in heavens name are we supposed to “trust” these people?
    “Sometimes as in the case of autistic children their weakened immune systems cannot handle “inactivated” live virus and can’t fight it off. So the live virus hangs around in their body creating inflammation on a low- grade level – both in the gut and the brain.” Doctor Mark Hyman MD
    “Many of these modern factors created a whole plethora of young ladies in our modern world who have quite deeply abnormal gut flora by the time they are ready to have their first child. This is the abnormal gut flora that they are passing through their children,” Doctor Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD
    “Vaccinations have been developed, originally, for children with perfectly healthy immune systems,” she says. “GAPS children are NOT fit to be vaccinated with the standard vaccination protocol.” Note Doctor Natasha recommends NO vaccines until the infant is tested and found to be NOT GAPS, then vaccination can be CONSIDERED, if the infant has GAPS NO vaccines until the infant’s GAPS condition is completely gone.

  2. My son who is developing normal till he is 1 year old and started regress after that. My son who is almost 4 years now is suffering from ASD. I think there must be a link with the MMR vaccine. My son is severely hyperactive too without any fear of danger. A month ago he fell from first floor which is 12 feet from the concrete ground, but with the bless of God he is unhurt not even a scratch or a fractured bone. He is leaving in his own world. He cannot speak too. As a father it is very hard to cope such behavior. As we live in a small city where we don’t have facilities for counseling or the like,it is really a very challenging task. So my humble request to all the online community that i need your suggestion and your valuable advise.
    Thanking you all in advance.
