Mission: Jonah


ARE WE EDJUMACATED?

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, only because I wanted to take a step back and assess the direction in which this blog will continue to grow. There has been so much developing in my life, and the perspective that I view our world with has continued to evolve in the last few months. Mission Jonah is not just about reclaiming my child from autism. This is a mission to awaken people to the prospect that what we have been taught has been misleading, and the only way we can change this is to educate ourselves and create awareness in others.

 

Since starting this blog, I have been approached by several people who have questions, concerns, and want advice. While I cannot instruct people not to vaccinate their children, I can encourage them to research the issues for themselves, and hopefully direct them to resources that provide them with the answers they are looking for.

 

Buyer beware: you will come across very disturbing information, just as I have. You can choose to believe it, or disregard it. The proof is not in the fluffy medical studies that do nothing to disprove the links between autism and vaccinations. The proof is in the alarming number of families who can testify to the changes that occurred in their children.

 

I have listened to people in the medical industry tell me flat out that there is no way there is a link between vaccinations and autism because all the studies they have seen said so. I always want to ask them “How many studies have you really read?” but I’m too afraid of stepping on toes and causing insult. You see, I’ve read as many studies as I can get my hands on, and not a single study provides a placebo group. Not one study shows the numbers of children diagnosed with autism that did not receive vaccinations, versus the number of children diagnosed with autism that did receive vaccinations. Someone told me as a rebuttal that there isn’t a large enough population of autistics to provide this statistic, like there is with cancer. Yet, we will have about half a million children in the United States become adults with autism in the next decade. I don’t know about you, but 500,000 sounds like a huge number to me.

 

I am not a medical expert, but I have witnessed the damaging side effects that the medical industry persistently denies. While 500,000 people with autism may sound like a huge number to me, it is apparently not significant enough for anyone to stand up and do something about this. FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND is just a drop in the pan to pharmaceutical companies grossing an estimated $20 billion annually from vaccines alone.

 

But, we need to be looking beyond vaccinations. We need to be looking at real numbers. Forgive me if I am repeating statistics, but I just need to point out that in the 1980’s, autism affected 1 in 10,000 children. What happened? What has changed in our environment? What has changed in our lifestyles? What is causing this? What is causing the other numerous developmental disorders that are now crippling our children? According to the CDC, 1 in 7 children are affected with a developmental disorder, including autism. We need to demand to know WHY!

 

Vaccines are only one of the many issues at hand with autism. Think of everything foreign from nature that has come into contact with your body. Think of every pill you have swallowed. Think of the chemicals in the lotions, creams, ointments, soaps, and perfumes you have put on your skin. Think of all the gases and fumes you have inhaled. Think of all the chemicals that were sprayed onto your fruits and vegetables, which you eat. Think of all the synthetic preservatives that go into your processed foods, which you eat. Think of all the hormones and antibiotics that are being stuffed into the livestock, which you eat. Think of the cleaning agents that meat is washed in, which isn’t washed off before you eat it. Think of the chemicals that go into the water that you drink.

 

These contaminants have intoxicated our bodies. It’s as if our society is in a drug-induced coma, and we are too strung out to notice that something is wrong with our cheeseburgers. The point I will continually try to make, is that this is not just about autism. This is about every illness and disorder that is plaguing our society. People are literally dyeing. We live in a poison bubble, and no one seems to care. It’s frustrating and heartbreaking. More people need to realize that we have only been taught what someone else wants us to know.

 

The pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know that more and more people are surviving cancer with natural therapy. The pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know that raw milk has been known to reverse allergies and cure asthma. The pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know that their drugs are not safe for everyone to consume. And, we can’t rely on our government to inform us or protect us because the politicians don’t want you to know any of this either since it would cut into their campaign contributions. There is too much self interest and money at the top for anyone to care about the little people at the bottom. I am a little person at the bottom, and I say, “ENOUGH ALREADY!” When are we going to start demanding honest answers?

 

Why have we become so gullible as a society, that we take every one by their word? We are only being taught as much as someone else wants us to know. If we don’t challenge this system with questions and demand answers, we will never get to the truth.

 

Here’s a truth for you. Jonah completed his first 8 week clearing for the Hep A vaccine, and guess what… The dramatic improvements he has made in the last two months far exceed any expectations I had. He is saying new things everyday, and engaging in new ways everyday. He is greatly improved, and I have faith that he will continue to improve as we move forward with CEASE Therapy. We will be begin another Hep A clearing for 4 weeks this Monday.  Jonah has enlightened me to a truth that only experience can manifest.

Jonah has been very verbal the last 5 days, which has been extremely exciting. He is demonstrating a level of expression that I have never been able to experience with him, at least not for a consistent length of time. In the past, his strength of language would vary day by day, one day being strong, the next 10 days extremely garbled and only speaking with prompting, and another strong day, back to difficult again, and so on, and so on. In the last 5 days, he has been singing more songs, and demonstrating age appropriate pretend play. The majority of his speech is clearer, and the words and phrases he is confident with are coming out of his mouth crystal clear. This morning, when I was dropping him off at his summer camp, he held up his pug puppy beanie baby to the water fountain in front of the school and said “Puppy, Look at the waterfall.” I couldn’t believe it!



It is sometimes scary to think about how different Jonah might be if he weren’t autistic. It’s hard to describe how unique and amazing his personality is (as said by every mother). He has a very special innocence that has been preserved. I believe that when the autism took over around the age of 2, his mental/psychological development was stunted, leaving him with an immature mode of expression. He is now maturing and expressing himself similarly to a 3-4 year old.  His pronunciation is difficult to understand, but inappropriate behaviors and tantrums have diminished almost completely. He has always been very cuddly and affectionate, and is always giggling over something.

Jonah has made tremendous advancements over the last year, most significantly in the last 6 months which has been one of the major motivators for seeking out a homeopathic therapy for him. I drastically changed our diets at the end of last year, and noticed a significant improvement in his development and overall demeanor in a very short period of time. It was at this point that I came to the realization that something unnatural had occurred in my child’s body, and if I could recognize such a dramatic change in him just by improving his nutritional intake, then restoring a natural balance in him might further relieve some of his autistic expressions.  

With Jonah, there are times when the autistic expressions are very prominent, and times when he seems like a completely normal little boy. This is why he received the PDD-NOS diagnosis versus the ASD diagnosis. It has been a puzzle in our family, because there are times when he does not fit into any of the categories associated with ASD. During the first year after his diagnosis, I was hoping that this would be something he would just grow out of. It was so difficult to tell when he was at such a young age what could be deemed as a significant developmental delay. I second guessed the diagnosis for awhile, and researched various disorders, hoping one might have the answers we were looking for. 


We have not started the CEASE Therapy yet, but I’m hoping to begin next month (August). I want to make sure that I am starting the therapy when it will be right for Jonah, so that it does not disrupt too much of his routine. In some ways perhaps it is better that I am taking the time to thoroughly investigate and prepare his medical history and my medical history, so we have as much information as possible when we start the therapy. I was talking to a friend today about it, and I had the same hope and realization that I confidently feel every time I talk about it: That within the next few years, Jonah will be a completely different child.
