Autism. Once thought to be a genetic disorder, or worse, a psychological syndrome caused by cold, unresponsive mothers, autism was a rare disorder found in 1 in 10,000 children. Today autism is epidemic, occurring in 1 every 166 or 1 in 150 children, depending upon the study. Many more suffer from other neurological deficits ranging from ADHD to learning disabilities.
Belief in the cause and effect of vaccination injury was born from experience. Normal children who met and exceeded milestones, two year-olds with growing vocabularies, received a vaccination and suddenly lost the ability to speak, to interact with their parents and peers, to relate to anyone or anything outside of their own inner worlds.
Through the years many therapies have been employed to aid autistic children, from sensory integration therapies to dietary management. In recent years, bio-medical intervention including gluten and dairy free diets, vitamin therapy, and chelation therapy (removing heavy metals from the body) have met with outstanding success.
Stan Kurtz, President of Generation Rescue, spent a full year learning about diet and biomedical treatment before changing his son’s diet. Ethan had been diagnosed with full-blown autism at 20 months. Within 2 weeks of dietary changes which included eliminating milk and gluten from Ethan’s diet, his speech doubled. “It was then that I made the decision to only listen to parents and doctors who had actually recovered children,” writes Stan, “I didn’t realize it at the time, but that was the most important decision for my child’s future. Four months later my son’s soul was returned to him and our dreams were restored. Ethan had recovered from autism!”
Generation rescue does more than disseminate information; they have developed a network of doctors and volunteers, rescue angels, to aid families who are seeking cures. Rescue angels have helped their own children; they know the devastation families face as well as the conflicting information and downright misinformation most parents of autistic children receive.
Stan’s pediatrician was a good example. He had told Stan there was no hope, no cure. When Stan visited him to share the wonderful news of Ethan’s recovery, the doctor was far from receptive. He wouldn’t even look Stan in the eye.
Our food is full of pesticides, artificial flavors, and colors. Our water and fish are contaminated with mercury, as is the air in many places. We wash our hair and bodies with chemicals. We wash our floors and
windows with chemicals and breathe indoor pollution caused by our synthetic carpets, glues, and paints. We live in a sick world. Is it any wonder that our children are sick?
Generation Rescue believes the epidemic rise in autism, ADD/ADHD, Asperger’s, and other neurological disorders is due to environmental illness, caused by environmental factors and as a direct result of “dirty” vaccines and an overzealous vaccine schedule. They are not advocates for ending vaccinations, but they certainly want to stop the needless and senseless morbidity caused by shots that include mercury, aluminum, anti-freeze, and other contaminants. They also want to put an end to the current practice of over vaccination (the vaccination schedule in 1983 recommended 10 vaccinations; in 2008, 36 are recommended!), to warn all parents to spread out vaccinations and to never, ever vaccinate a sick child.
