Mission: Jonah


Bad to Good

The Santa Ana winds kicked up for a couple of weeks, bringing on migraine headaches, and downed spirits. It’s amazing, the sickness that comes from the dessert blowing all the polluted summer smog back at the cities in the form of hot winds. I feel like I am just getting back on my feet. I was so run-down for a couple of weeks, I didn’t even feel like grocery shopping and cooking (my favorite things to do). Jonah and I suffered since we were eating more items from the pantry, which means more processed crap in our diet than we are accustomed to. If anything, I have further solidified my beliefs on the importance of good nutrition to help control Jonah’s behaviors.

 

Jonah has started a 2nd round clearing for the Hep A vaccine. This clearing will last 4 weeks, and I have to say that the 2nd time around has not been such a charm. Regressive behaviors have become more pronounced, and even some new mild self-stimulation behaviors are peeking through the lining a bit. I can attribute some of these behaviors to food, since we were lacking freshness in our diet while I was under the weather. He’s been very defiant the last couple of weeks, and demonstrating high attention seeking behaviors. I have not witnessed these behaviors at this level in some time. On the positive side of this, he’s much smarter now, and much more capable of communicating, which is perhaps why it is so much more difficult coping with these behaviors than I remember. Once he has his mind set on something… well, he’s almost as stubborn as I am.

 

Of course, when he is demonstrating these regressive behaviors, I feel horrible because I have no idea what might happen at school or at the after-school program. Jonah has incredible teachers, and he absolutely adores them. We are lucky that Jonah has had such dedicated people to work with him and teach him. They are really extraordinary people who demonstrate a sincere want and desire to work with children growing up with autism. He was on fall break for the last 2 weeks, during which time, he attended extended school services while I was at work. Changes in schedule and routine can still be difficult for Jonah to deal with, and we did see a couple of incidents where Jonah demonstrated aggressive behaviors towards the staff at ESS. On a positive side to this, he is starting to acknowledge remorse for his actions without prompting. When I picked him up last Friday, he had behaved badly, and was in time-out when I walked through the door. When he saw me, he looked at me with a down face while the supervisor was informing me of the incident. I heard him say “Sorry, Mommy. No Mario. No Disneyland.” Of course, when he is being non-compliant, the first things I threaten to take away are Super Mario Brothers and Disneyland.

 

These are signs that, in spite of the regressive behaviors, there are underlying advancements being made. The damage caused by in-toxicity, in part to the Hep A vaccine for now, is being cleared out of his body. It’s just like when you get sick from a common cold or the flu. In order to properly recover from the virus, your symptoms get worse before you get better, right? When a cold or flu first infects your body, you don’t sense it immediately. It’s then followed by a little twinge at the back of your throat, then the achy neck, then chills and fever, then the body aches, and so on… These are symptoms caused by your immune system ‘fighting off the enemies’ — per say. It’s interesting that I am witnessing homeopathy unfold layers of Jonah’s autistic expressions in the same manner. Things must get worse before they get better.

 

It’s amazing to me that conventional medicine doesn’t seem to understand this natural process of healing. Instead, they will have you believe that you can suppress your coughs, and control your fevers, which ultimately prolongs the length of your illness by suppressing the body’s natural ability to heal itself. In the meantime, you feel like you are better because you’re chugging down cough syrup to swallow your anti-biotics, and figure “I’m not contagious because I’m not coughing.” And you go to work, and you do the grocery shopping, and you mail your DVDs back to Netflix, sharing the joy that is your cold with the rest of the unsuspecting public who will do the exact same thing because that is what your doctor tells you to do. These are the doctors that get to take their families on a free trip to Disneyland, all expenses paid by healthcare facilities and pharmaceutical reps. Conflicts of interests?

 

I guess these issues are at the core of human nature. The capacity and ability to acknowledge and change comes at the precipice of an event. Meaning, things must get worse before they get better. THINGS MUST GET WORSE BEFORE THEY GET BETTER! I believe the tipping point is upon us, since we are very near to seeing the worst of it.

 

For example, Gerson Therapy is a natural, and very highly effective way to treat cancer, but the powers that be in conventional ‘American’ medicine won’t admit it. They won’t even test it as plausible, and it has been around for decades. During these decades, cancer rates have climbed and any doctor that stumbles upon evidence of natural therapy working is discredited. According to the Cancer Prevention Society, “1 in 3 people will get cancer during our lifetimes.”  And now, at the beginning of a precipice that could impact 50% of our population by 2020, people are seeking out natural cancer therapy because they have the good instinct to recognize that whatever medicine we are being fed is not working. This could be very bad news for the various cancer organizations that raise millions of dollars to pay pharmaceutical companies to come up with new drugs that you will have to buy at astronomical prices, driving up stock prices, in hopes to save your life. If everyone finds out that you have a better chance of curing your cancer with coffee enemas and a plant based diet, who will feed the poor pharmaceutical reps and oncologists?

 

Cancer is just another thing the Food and Drug Adminstration, American Medical Association, and Center for Disease Control will not be honest with Americans about. They will not conduct a double-blind study of conventional cancer therapy versus natural therapy, because there is no profit to be made from it. Just as they will not conduct a double-blind study of autism occurring in children who have been vaccinated versus autism occurring in children who have not been vaccinated. There is no profit to be made from it. These organizations and medical professionals that are supposed to protect the health of the people in this country do more to damage us for the sake of money.

 

When it comes to vaccines, they hide behind the statement “For the Greater Good.” For those of us that have children with autism caused by vaccinations, how do you feel about the sacrifice your child has made for the greater good? I was participating in a conversation at one of my favorite stores for local produce over the weekend, and we were on the subject of vaccines causing autism. The owner of the store asked a couple if they would vaccinate their children. The man replied, “Well my dad is a doctor, and he said the risks associated with not being vaccinated are more dangerous.” At this point, I glanced over and said, “Well, I think I would rather not have autism for the rest of my life.” Especially, if we could help it.

 



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.

CEASE Update

We met with our practitioner yesterday. I am anxiously waiting to hear back from her today. I’ll be working on the next blog article and doing some more research. It seems homeopathy is a little magical, but it works. Let’s hope it works for Jonah. 


I will fill you in on more details as soon as I can.

Dear Family and Friends:

For those of you who don’t know him, this is my Jonah. At 5 years old, he stands at 43 inches, a whopping 40 pounds, with blazing blonde hair, giant blue eyes, and a mischievous giggle.  He is my heart, my soul, and my every breath, all wrapped up in another being that I can’t control. If only I controlled it, he wouldn’t be autistic.

Jonah’s autism diagnosis came when he was 3 years old. He was actually diagnosed with PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified), but it is treated like autism. The diagnosis process, and early intervention began when he was 2 and a half, almost exactly 3 years ago. He is considered to be high-functioning, or mild to moderate. He is very smart, and I am proud to report that he is already learning to read, write, and use basic arithmetic. 

Jonah also has a very rare genetic disorder known as 18Q Deletion Syndrome. This essentially means that there is a deletion on the long leg of his 18th chromosome, which was diagnosed shortly after his birth. The symptoms and side effects associated with 18Q Deletion Syndrome can vary, depending on the size of the deletion. In Jonah’s case, the deletion is so miniscule, it does not appear to have impacted him physically. However, autism is often linked to children with 18Q Syndrome, which brings us to where we are now.

As a parent, I never could have imagined this. This is the stuff you don’t sign up for. This is the stuff that is typed in fine Sanskrit at the bottom of the celestial contract you sign with the universe upon delivering a child. Had I known what I suspect now, I would have done so many things differently. I would do anything to reverse my son’s autism. Please do not think that I do not accept him for who he is now, but if I can make anything just the tiniest bit better for him, I will do it. I can not go back and change the mistakes that I believe caused his autism, but I am moving forward to reverse the damage that has been done to him.

While the medical industry reports that they have found no evidence linking vaccinations to autism, they have yet to show us proof that vaccinations irrefutably do not cause autism. The truth is, no one knows for sure, therefore, we can not rule out any options. I was one of those people who adamantly denied a link between vaccinations and autism, until earlier this year when I read “Autism, Beyond Despair: Homeopathy Has the Answers” by Dr. Tinus Smits, MD and Tim Owens.  Dr. Smits developed a homeopathic therapy that he has administered to treat and reverse autism. CEASE Therapy (Complete Elimination of Autism Spectrum Expression) clears the body of toxins, primarily from vaccinations that may be causative factors to a child’s autism. Since autism is such a complex disorder, it is my understanding that what might work for one child, may not work for another to the same extent. Regardless, in the cases of autism that Dr. Smits worked with, he was able to achieve significant improvement in the child’s condition.

It should be noted, that I believe there are several causative factors in addition to vaccinations that could be linked to autism, and if we continue abusing our bodies by exposing ourselves and our children to toxins that are not natural to the human body, we will soon be at pandemic levels of diagnosis of developmental disability. These are things that are building generationally, which is why the severity of developmental disorders is increasing.  In the 80’s and 90’s, all the kids had ADD. Now in the new millennium, all the kids have autism. What’s next? When will we as a society demand answers? Will it be when the statistics are reversed and 1 in 90 children are being diagnosed “normal”? Unfortunately, for many people, it will be when their children are diagnosed, just as mine was.

I am not a scientist, or a doctor, but I have lived with this condition for the last three years, and I can tell you what I have witnessed first hand with Jonah. I am also capable of simple math, and if you add the simple facts together, there is no way to deny that something unnatural is occurring in our children. The first case of autism was reported in 1943, and it has grown unlike anything else we have ever seen over the last 68 years. In fact, I would like to challenge the medical industry to show us another condition that has had a stronger global impact. This isn’t just about autism, but rather an increasingly unnatural occurrence of developmental disorders that our children are at risk of.

And, here I stand, angry and on a mission to tackle what I believe has caused Jonah’s autism. It is the most painful thing a parent could imagine: to watch your child disappear right in front of you. To watch his words disappear, to watch his expression disappear, to watch his eyes disappear.  I am blessed that Jonah’s condition is not as severe as others. I am grateful that he is a very loving, optimistic, affectionate and happy child. While we have our challenging moments, Jonah is a very good boy. We have many positive things on our side as we embark on this mission.

I am in preparation mode to begin CEASE Therapy for Jonah this summer. It is my mission to share with any one who wants to listen (or read) as we go through this journey, in hopes that it may help other children trapped in this condition. I can only hope and pray for support from everyone I know, and everyone you know. Please share this blog, pass it along. We need all the support we can get.
