Conquering Autism, Reclaiming Your Child Through Natural Therapies

by Stephen B. Edelson, M.D., Kensington Publishing Corp, 2003

I got the book from the Columbus Public Library. I don’t have any autistic children but I find the subject interesting. The number of autistic children in this country is skyrocketing. The author says it is due to pollution and not shots.

I agree with his treatments methods and much of what he has to say. I do disagree with what he says about autism not being due to vaccinations. I believe vaccinations trigger the illness. The preservatives in the vaccines are “safe” for adults but not safe for a baby or very small child. The vaccine overwhelms the child’s ability to detox setting him up for toxins to accumulate in the body. When the “barrel” is full above the body’s ability to cope, anything can be the “last straw”. It could be another vaccination or exposure to household chemicals.

I do recommend the book very highly. I think his treatment methods are sound. He has had good results treating children.

Healing the New Childhood Epidemics, Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies, The Groundbreaking Program for the 4-A Disorders

by Kenneth Bock, M.D., and Cameron Stauth, Ballantine Books, 2007

I got the book from the Columbus Public Library

This is by far the best book I have found so far on treating these illnesses and I believe his technique would also apply to the new adult epidemics of CFS and fibromyalgia.

Kenneth Bock is a DAN doctor (Defeat Autism Now) and he tells about many of his clients and what steps he took to treat them many of whom no longer have autism, ADHD, asthma, or allergies. He talks clearly about what he thinks is causing these illnesses and defines his treatment program.

Four catastrophic changes caused the increase of autism ADHD asthma and allergies

Most of these vaccinations contained a form of mercury called thimerosal, which is a preservative. It's long been known that mercury is the second most toxic substance on earth, after uranium, and is especially damaging to the human nervous system, because it tends to selectively lodge in brain tissue.

These extra vaccinations gave kids too much mercury. Even just the three vaccinations given to two-month-old infants contained 99 times more mercury than the EPA regards as safe. The amount of mercury given to newborns on their first day of life was 36 times too much.
Pregnant women are given flu shots with mercury in them. And shots for Rh factor with mercury in them.
We give shots to sick children whose health is already compromised.

The healing program:

Nutritional therapy: whole organic nutrient dense foods, no allergenic foods, yeast free type diet and/or gluten free casein free for many children, limit carbs for some.
Supplementation therapy
Detoxification - restore methylation
Medication when necessary - antifungals...
