Is There A Cure For Autism?

Raun Kaufman

In 1976, a ground-breaking book was published about an autistic child who was cured of his autism.  Prior to that time, autism was thought to be an incurable disease.  Raun Kaufman disproved the theory, whose own son triumphed over autism.

However, even today when parents are told that they have a child with autism they are almost always told that there is no cure.  In fact, if a person diagnosed with autism improves, then most doctors still assume the diagnosis was wrong in the first place.  But in a world where we regularly heal leprosy, cause the blind to see, the lame to walk and the deaf to hear, I think it is not very realistic to call anything “incurable.”  We are beginning to understand that “incurable” just means “ignorant.”  If we understand a disease, then we can cure it.

Symptoms

Autism is not a disease with a cause; it is simply a collection of symptoms.  People who are diagnosed with autism meet certain criteria that include:

  1. Problems with social interaction, such as a lack of eye contact or not acknowledging others.
  2. Language delays, such as speaking, reading or writing.
  3. Repetitive behaviors, such as spinning things, flapping hands, or balancing things.

Causes

Like every other part of the body, the brain has stages of development.  If there is an insult during a certain stage, the function that would normally take place doesn’t happen and there is a resulting deficit.  In autism, the insult to the developing brain seems to happen anywhere from the womb to early childhood.  Those things that are thought to cause this disturbance are many, some of which include:

Reverse Autism With A Clay Bath!

Playing in the Mud is Safe for Mercury/Heavy Metal Detox

Mud baths date back to the dawn of time. The ancient Romans valued mud baths as a preventative and curative measure where members of the entire population – male and female, young and old, ill and healthy – would gather to immerse themselves in the mud. In Egypt, Cleopatra used clay to preserve her complexion.

The Wappo Indians used mud baths of volcanic ash and spring waters for their health treatments. Other native species used clay to cure wounds, as well as paint caves.  Sadly, in some countries, eating dirt has become a way of surviving.

Present day, we can still thank Mother Nature for the value of dirt.  Mud baths have been used to treat everything from tired, achy muscles, radiation and chemical/pesticide exposure and heavy metal poisoning.

Very recently, some surprising and encouraging results have been reported when using clay baths to treat Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and ADD.

Since one of the biggest benefits of a clay bath is the removal of heavy metals such as mercury and

Spiritual Clarity for those Navigating the Fog of Autism

In general, we all find disease frustrating and can easily empathize with those afflicted and affected. However, diseases that effect children stir up a whole different set of emotions ranging from anger to zeal – anger in terms of how could this be happening and zeal to conquer.

One out of every one hundred sixty-six (1 of 166) children in America is diagnosed with autism.  Despite numerous advancements in understanding and treating autism, it remains shrouded in mystery and misunderstood even by the medical community – for the most part. There is much written on this subject; but unlike a generation ago, parents today have resources and support at their fingertips, thanks in part to the internet. What follows is my attempt to contribute to the conversation — and controversy.

Over the years, as I’ve interacted with parents of autistic children, several questions are raised about autism and how it relates to God, healing and hope. These questions bear repeating here and my prayer is that my response to the questions will benefit you. Before I begin, let me mention that it is okay to question God. Jesus said ask, seek and knock. It’s even okay to bang on heaven’s door. God wants to be known by you. The more you press into knowing him, the more the difficulties in the world make sense.

The “Why Me?” Question – Why did God choose me

Can We Reverse This Autism Pandemic? Leading Scientists Say Yes.

Did you know that 1 out of every 150 babies born in the U.S. has autism?

Autism currently affects about 1,500,000 people in the U.S., and the numbers are increasing, according to the Autism Society of America.

Some people are calling the autism pandemic “a national emergency,” as autism rates skyrocket worldwide.

Are we all just going to sit and watch the autism pandemic get worse day by day?

The truth is many leading scientists agree much more can be done to help people with autism. Just blindly accepting autism as fate doesn’t help anyone.

If you have a loved one with Autism and you want to give them the best quality of life possible, as soon as possible, then this may be the most important autism report you’ll ever read.

The signs of autism usually appear within the first three years of life. Currently, estimates claim the annual cost of caring for autistic people in the U.S. is about $13 billion per year and the lifetime care of an individual autistic person averages $2 million.

So, if we’re spending all this money on autism, then where is the cure?

Spending billions of dollars “treating symptoms” changes nothing. The only way to make a lasting difference is to eliminate the underlying cause of autism.

Autism is one of the most complex challenges before us today.”

Before real cutting-edge advancements can become mainstream, the prejudices and blocks to proper care need to be eliminated.

To move toward a real solution, we must first we need to accept the reality that Western medicine has blatantly failed to help the autistic. It only adds insult to injury when doctors refuse to accept the reality of their inability to help anyone with drugs and surgery.

The real challenge is really about learning to listen better to what people with autism can teach us about the best ways to help them with healing alternatives. Until we agree on the cure, it benefits no one to condemn an autistic person to ignorance, social prejudice and stereotypes.

After decades of trial and error, new ways of helping autistic people are redefining what it means to be autistic as well as non-autistic. Today, we’re taking giant steps toward agreeing that autism is both preventable and curable . . . perhaps in the final lesson we will also discover what it means to be more human.

Autism In Perspective

Autism used to be quite rare, occurring in just 1 child out of 2000.

However, since the early 1990’s, the rate of autism has spread exponentially around the world with statistics as high as 1 out of 110, with boys being diagnosed 400% more than girls.

The Centers for Disease Control defines 5 main types of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The five types of ASD are:

  1. Classical autism
  2. Asperger’s syndrome
  3. Pervasive Developmental Disorder –not Otherwise specified (PDD-NOS)
  4. Rett syndrome
  5. Childhood Disintegrative Disorder

Let’s look at the history of this relatively young condition.

  • 1911: Eugen Bleuler, a Swiss psychiatrist, used the term autistic to describe a group of symptoms related to schizophrenia.
  • 1940’s: Dr. Leo Kanner from Johns Hopkins University, first coined autism as “Kanner’s syndrome,” and referred to it as an infantile psychosis.
  • Meanwhile Hans Asperger, a scientist in Germany, identified a similar condition that’s now called Asperger’s syndrome.
  • 1960’s: Bernard Rimland, a psychologist who was the father of an autistic child, redefined autism as a “brain disorder.”

For an entire decade, they used
