FAQ

Here are some of the questions we are most often asked, in no particular order:

Do you think vaccines caused Will's Autism? I don't know for sure, but I think so. I believe it was some kind of toxin that caused it. Will has Regressive Autism, which means he was hitting all of his milestones and had words in which he lost, all of this happening between 16-18 months. Kevin and I even had taken an 'autism questionnaire' in a parent magazine around when Will was a year old and he passed with flying colors. (Funny, I was relieved at the time, little did I know).

Why don't vaccines hurt all children? Because our children are pre-disposition ed not to be able to handle those toxins. They can not get rid of the heavy metals like other children can. So they stay in his body and ultimately injure his brain.

From Boyd Haley, Professor and Chair of the University of Kentucky Department of Chemistry: "The EPA safe level for mercury exposure from the diet is 0.1 micrograms/2.2 pounds body weight and the vaccines preserved with thimerosal has 12.5 micrograms of mercury or 125 times the EPA safe level. This makes the vaccine exposure safe if your baby weighs 275 pounds." Also, the thimerosal is injected, not ingested, which makes it more toxic, and it is delivered with aluminum that enhances the neurotoxicity...."

What is a DAN! doctor? DAN! stands for Defeat Autism Now! and these doctors follow the protocol that is taught by the Autism Research Institute. Our DAN! Dr. is Dr. Hank Sloan at The Genesis Center. We love him!! It is quite expensive (although Dr. Sloan does only what is necessary and cost effective) and insurance doesn't cover any of it but it is essential for treating Will, so thanks to the help of many of our family members we are pulling it off.

What is Chelation? It is the process of removing toxic heavy metals from the body. Will is going to start chelation next week!!

How did you first know? See post from August 3r.

Why is GF/CF diet help kids with Autism? The GFCF diet is recommended not because of allergy to the proteins in milk and most grains. The theory is that a large % of our kids do not fully break down the proteins casein and gluten into a single amino acid. They for whatever reason only half breakdown the peptides. These peptides have opiate effects in our kids brains. In other words ever time our kids eat casein or gluten it is like they are taking morphine. ( Got this off a board, was the easiest way that I had heard it explained).

  2. Hi,

    If you are following a gluten-free diet, I've found that Whole Foods Market is a great resource for gluten-free products. All of the information you need and a listing of their products can be found on their website:
