If vaccines don’t cause autism, then what does? Find out the root cause of Autism Spectrum Disorder AND natural autism treatment and prevention options.
Statistics continue to show that Autism is on the rise.
Recently, the Associated Press reported that more than 7,000 Oregon students have autism…triple the number from just eleven years ago,while other disabilities were virtually unchanged.1
How can this be happening and what are the answers?
Unfortunately, mainstream medicine is still searching for clues, but after years of success stories, I am certain that Body Ecology has crucial answers for helping to reverse autism and...equally important...for prevention of autism.
At one time, thimerosal (a dangerous mercury-containing preservative) in vaccines was believed by parents to be the culprit in autism because they noticed serious regressive changes in their children (that led to a diagnosis of autism) right after vaccinations.
In 2001, general agreement regarding the danger of thimerosal prompted the FDA to require removal or reduction (to trace amounts) of thimerosal in all vaccines routinely recommended for children under the age of 6. 2
Today, the FDA states that only some flu vaccines and other vaccines for adults and children age 7 and older still contain thimerosal.
So if mercury is no longer in the early childhood vaccines, why is autism still on the rise today? Why are so many children still developing autism after vaccinations?
For the last several years here at Body Ecology we have been teaching that autism is not caused by the mercury in the vaccines but has multiple causes. Yes, mercury and other metals found in these children (and most children today) are toxic and damage their neurological system. But at Body Ecology we feel confident that a “genetic disorder” is causing this problem. And, yes, autism has its origin in the womb.
During pregnancy the mother’s immune system is suppressed so that it does not fight against her fetus. Progesterone slows down the movement of food through the intestines and she becomes constipated –causing her blood to become more acidic and toxic. With acidic blood and a stiffled immune system systemic fungal and viral infections in the mother’s bloodstream become more acute causing serious inflammation and free radicals. Add in poor nutrition from the modern diet, high levels of stress during the pregnancy and often invasive medical interventions during labor and delivery and you have a fetus who begins life at risk for autism.
But aren’t most all fetuses experiencing this difficult start to life? Why do only some children become autistic? Why do most cases of autism appear after vaccinations?
As you know from the Body Ecology Principle of Cleansing, our bodies were created with an innate ability to purify. Every newborn needs to be able to purify or cleanse out toxins inherited from its parents and grandparents. In today’s baby the detoxification pathways are not strong and vital as they were generations ago. In fact, parents of an autistic child will tell you that their child was constipated from birth. Their detoxification pathways are not open and they cannot cleanse with childhood fevers, runny noses, etc.
Todays children are very much at risk for autism because they also lack a healthy inner ecosystem that should have begun developing at birth.
A healthy inner ecosystem is made up of the friendly microflora (good bacteria and yeast) that reside in your intestines and keep you healthy and strong.
Did you know that 75 - 85% of our immunity is located in the lymph tissue in our inner ecosystem…our intestines?
Babies who lack this inner ecosystem have poorimmunity.
Vaccinations, on the other hand, were originally created for people with strong immune systems. Newborn babies have not had time to build strong immune systems and should not be vaccinated!
And have we forgotten about Mother Nature –as protecting of her newborns as all good mothers are? Nature has a special way of shielding a newborn against pathogens with antibodies inherited by his mother while he is in her womb. And he will receive even more nourishing and protective substances in her colostrum and breast milk that are working while his inner ecosystem is developing. (This takes about 3 months especially IF newborns are given probiotic liquids like the juice of cultured vegetables or young coconut kefir, or Cocobiotic). If a parent chooses to vaccinate later, a strong immune system (from a healthy inner ecosystem) would ensure that the viruses and other toxic substances (still in the vaccines) that will be injected into their child’s bloodstream are not so potentially dangerous. Right now, we have a system of so-called-protection in place that reminds me of babies playing with razor blades.
But let’s go back to the very beginning of a newborn’s life and identify how this happened and what can be done.
In order to really understand what is happening with a newborn’s health’s and immunity, we must ideally go back to the time of conception.
Over the years that I’ve been working with parents of children with autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), there have been some common traits:
In fact, research has shown that there are hundreds of toxins and other heavy metals in a newborn’s umbilical cord blood, clearly indicating that these were inherited in the womb.
In fact, if a mother has a fungal infection, she can pass that on to her baby. While a baby may have no signs of a fungal infection, there may be some early indicators of the problem, like constipation, rashes, eczema, cradle cap, and colic.

Since doctors and parents have not been made aware that this is happening to our babies while they are in the womb, these fungal infections are going undetected.
I share this information NOT to blame parents, because I have found that parents of children with autism are some of the brightest most committed and courageous people I’ve ever met.
In fact, I share this to empower parents, before, during and after birth, so they have natural options to help their children (and themselves) create optimal health.
At Body Ecology we view autism as an infection of the brain and gut, with inflammation that leaves cells in certain regions of the brain damaged and without oxygen.
While we are passionately into preventing autism by focusing greatly on improving the health of both parents before conception and by creating a strong immune system in the newborn immediately after birth, we know that you can treat the brain infection, gut infection and inflammation with a natural, healing Body Ecology diet and lifestyle.
When diagnosed early our Body Ecology sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, antifungal diet— with its focus on toxin-cleansing, fermented foods— is key to helping reverse this condition quickly. With the Body Ecology Diet as a foundation other therapies including supplements, cranial sacral, mild hyperbaric oxygen and behavioral therapies (like SonRise, RDI and ABA) will work much more effectively.
Over the years, I found that parents of children with autism and other childhood disorders have reported successful improvements and recoveries using the Body Ecology system of health and healing. It is now recommended by more and more physicians who treat autism.
A great deal of credit must be given to the DEFEAT AUTISM NOW doctors who began taking apart this condition and diagnosing it in great detail. They saw what was happening, they listened carefully to parents welcoming every opportunity to learn more.
The more I personally learned about the symptoms of autism especially from the wonderful parents of our BEDROK group, the more I realized that the root causes of autism could be treated. AND they can certainly be prevented naturally with The Body Ecology way of life. It targets exactly what causes the problems to begin with: an imbalanced inner ecosystem in the gut and gut inflammation (fungal, bacterial, viral infection and leaky gut), systemic fungal infection, the cleansing of heavy metal toxins and the inability to absorb needed nutrients and detoxify. The diet, when practiced properly, is so nourishing that it provides wonderful nutrition to a child’s still developing brain—where new cells are rapidly growing.
Here is a general outline for preventing and treating autism:
Stress is best handled by being very grateful for everything. I know that this is hard to do, but see the problems in your life as challenges to help you grow spiritually stronger. Focus on what you want to create. And focus on what you want your baby to become. Play beautiful music and rub your body with essential oils that helps you relax and feel beautiful and happy. It is an incredible experience and a huge responsibity to create a new life.
In this way, parents are giving their babies an excellent head start leg up in creating optimal health and immunity from conception.
I am so committed to teaching parents how to treat and prevent autism naturally that I have created a 3-day seminar on the nutritional, emotional and physical techniques to prevent and treat Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Our children are experiencing health disorders like autism at epidemic rates, but this does not have to be a story of gloom and doom. In fact, I believe these children are here as a “wake up call” forcing us to change the direction we are heading. They are showing us we MUST change our modern way of life and reconnect again with Nature. By becoming obedient to these laws we will empower ourselves with true natural health that is our human birthright.
Autistic children are ambassadors helping us reconnect with Nature. If we listen, we will soon see that our children are a reflection of our time...yet are leading us...as our children have always done.
