New Information

A program shown on Free Speech TV ( has indicated that some cases of autism are caused by GMO foods, meaning genetically engineered foods which are consumed by children or adults. A simple test is to feed the person purely “certified organic food” for several weeks to see if that makes a difference.

Go to and look for the video: “Genetic Roulette: The Gamble Of Our Lives”

If you live in California support the labeling of GMO foods.

While researching GMO foods, read the rest of this article for more ideas about causes and treatments for autism.

The “Root Cause” of Autism

Autism is caused by microbes (e.g. infections in the stomach) and/or metals, such as mercury. They are usually in the stomach, colon, gut, call it what you want.

The source of the microbes is usually vaccinations, which will be discussed in the next section.

For now, let me paraphrase an article written by the Ed Skilling Institute regarding the actual microbes that can cause autism:

  • Autism is associated with prenatal maternal infection with rubella virus or cytomegalovirus. Clostridium bacterial species are present in greater numbers in the guts of autistic children.

The rubella virus, also called German measles or three-day measles, is a common virus. It is found mainly in the mouth and throat.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is in the family of herpes simplex viruses and others. It is very common and is frequently “latent,” meaning there are little or no symptoms.

There are about 100 different species of Chlostridium genus of bacteria. They are ubiquitious in nature and can normally be found in the intestines (i.e. guts). For some reason, these bacteria can be found in higher numbers in autistic children.

Lyme borreliosis or lyme disease can also be associated with autism, especially if the mother has this infection. It is likely passed on during birth in the birth canal.

Lyme Disease (in the mother and then in the fetus) appears to be a potential cause of many cases of autism. Consider this quote:

    • Chronic infectious diseases, including tick-borne infections such as Borrelia burgdorferi may have direct effects, promote other infections, and create a weakened, sensitized and immunologically vulnerable state during fetal development and infancy, leading to increased vulnerability for developing autism spectrum disorders. An association between Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections and autistic symptoms has been noted by numerous clinicians and parents.”

Medical Hypothesis Journal, Brandsfield, Wulfman, Harvey and Usman (all M.D.s)

See the book: The Lyme-Autism Connection: Unveiling the Shocking Link Between Lyme Disease and Childhood Development Disorders, by Bryan Rosner and Tami Duncan.

Many cases of lyme disease are misdiagnosed in modern medicine partly because diagnosing Lyme Disease is very difficult. For this reason many diseases which have similar symptoms to common diseases, but are actually caused by Lyme Disease, are hidden from the general public in terms of the actual cause of the disease.

A Treatment To Deal With the Microbes

This is from an email I received and would be a good place to start:

“Parasite Protocol along with MMS that has CURED over 140 kids this past year of Autism and proved via ALTEC lab scores!!!!!…”

Parasite Protocol

Here is an MSM and Chlorine Dioxide (i.e.MMS) protocol:
MSM/CD Protocol (i.e. MSM/MMS Protocol)

Another Possible Source of the Microbe – Vaccinations

It is certain that a major cause of autism is the measles virus. The virus generally has a permanent home in the intestines of the victim. The virus is injected into the body (i.e. vaccinations) and makes a home in the stomach.

This fact was discovered by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, MD:

  • “Concerns about the MMR vaccine and autism first surfaced in Great Britain in 1998, when gastroenterologist Andrew Wakefield, MD, reported on 12 children with developmental disorders (nine with autism) who had gastrointestinal disturbances similar to irritable bowel syndrome (Lancet. 1998;351:637-641). Wakefield’s team decided to look for measles virus in the intestines of such children, and began to formulate theories about a possible link between MMR vaccine and a subtype of autism that includes bowel symptoms.At the same time, anecdotal reports from parents began to surface. Four of these parents, who are physicians, were called to testify at the US congressional hearing. They recounted similar experiences: their children received vaccinations, followed by behavioral changes, bowel disturbances, and a diagnosis of autism. Combined with parental reports, Wakefield’s publication triggered several epidemiological studies, culminating in the IOM’s review.”

Numerous other evidences clearly point to the MMR vaccination as a major cause of autism.

Actually, autism is generally caused by several different things including infections and possibly heavy metals. Some single event may “trigger” the symptoms, but it is usually the case that multiple “insults” were involved.

Orthodox medicine does not believe in the pleomorphic theory of biology, even though it has been overwhelmingly proven by numerous independent studies (see the book: Four Women Against Cancer).

This pleomorphic microbe is sometimes a virus, sometimes a yeast, fungus, mould and bacteria. In its viral form it can easily pass though the filters used in the creation of vaccines, which are designed to block bacteria. In fact, many vaccinations contain live viruses.

The MMR vaccination can easily contain live measles viruses and mercury or aluminum, thus providing multiple “insults” in one shot. These viruses can lodge in the intestines, causing a life-long problem. The problem is sometimes autism.

If this were not true, why would the vaccine industry work so hard to get Congress to hold them legally harmless from the effects of their vaccines? They know the truth, but of course refuse to admit the truth and they refuse to stop making people sick because that is how they make their money.

The Best Treatment For Autism (Vaccination Suspected Cause)

The first thing you need to do is study the book: Fire In The Belly by Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, M.D. and PhD. In this book he talks about Dr. Wakefield. Here is the website:

Fire In the Belly Book

Second, for a treatment I would use these products (these chelate mercury and aluminum, etc.):

Pure Body Extra Strength (spray bottle) by Touchstone Essentials

Pure Body (liquid) by Touchstone Essentials

The first item is a spray bottle. The dose is typically four squirts, three times a day – directly into the mouth. For a child the dose may be less.

The second item, the liquid product, is taken orally and is a way to chelate mercury and aluminum from the colon. Here is a vendor of both products:

Touchstone Essentials

A second item to chelate mercury and aluminum from the colon (both products are strongly recommended) is called: Zeo Gold. This is also a superb chelator of the colon:

Vitamin Wagon (Click: “Zeolite” and search for: Zeo Gold)

Of course, also follow all of the advice in the “Fire in the Belly” book since dealing with mercury and aluminum represents only half of the issues involved in autism. The Fire in the Belly book goes into much greater detail into the problems.

Non-Vaccination Related Causes of Autism

The “bottom line” is that autism is a set of symptoms. Multiple things can cause this set of symptoms, for example – microbes. But the symptoms of autism are probably not caused by the microbes themselves, but rather by the mycotoxins (e.g. waste products) of these microbes.

These highly acidic mycotoxins get into the bloodstream and block brain signaling while they are circulating in the brain.

Two totally different approaches to getting rid of these microbes will be discussed.

Here is an excellent talk on treating autism by killing the microbes inside the brain and in the body using a very inexpensive product, Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS):
Autism Cure With MMS – Must Watch

This treatment would be a very good place to start if mercury is not the primary suspect.

Another possible root cause of autism is microbes and parasites in the organs. These microbes and parasites can weaken the immune system. While MMS, just mentioned, may kill these microbes and parasites, more precise methods are available.

One possible treatment for autism is also the primary treatment for several other brain disorders. One article has been written for several brain disorders because they all have the same “root cause,” namely highly acidic mycotoxins from microbes and parasites in the organs which create “perpetual brain fog.”

Here is the link to the primary treatment (which deals with the “root cause” of autism):

The Common Thread of All Major Brain Diseases

The Ed Skilling Institute has had excellent results with identifying the multiple “root causes” and treatment of autism.

I should note that neither the Photon Genius nor Photon Genie, by itself is a treatment for autism. The “consultation” with the Ed Skilling Institute, and the resulting nutritional protocol, combined with the Photon device(s), is the actual treatment for autism!!

Because the microbes and parasites are weakening the organs, neither Photon device will be effective until these microbes and parasites are gone. You cannot energize the cells if the microbes/parasites are still there!! That is what the consultation is all about.

The Ed Skilling Institute can identify all of the “insults” that caused the autism and can deal with all of these insults.

Other Useful Information

While the “root cause” of autism is microbes and/or heavy metals, there are other treatments that can significantly help deal with the symptoms of autism.

Three books, if the information in the books is combined, will likely give the parents of an autistic child good resources for dealing with the symptoms of autism.

The combination of orthomolecular medicine, nutrition (e.g. avoiding gluten), magnet therapy, etc. etc. are ignored by orthodox medicine, but turn out to be critical to treat autism and other brain inflammation disorders. All three books need to be read to see the big picture.

With all of this in mind, here are the three books:

Book #1: Healing and Preventing Autism by Jenny McCarthy, wife of actor Jim Carrey. Her organization is Generation Rescue at:

Generation Rescue

Book #2: Brain Allergies – The Psychonutrient and Magnetic Connections, by William H. Philpott, M.D. and Dwight K. Kalita, PhD. While chapter 12 has a case study of a girl who was cured of her autism, other parts of the book are equally or even more critical to autism.

Book #3: Building Wellness With DMG – How a Breakthrough Nutrient Gives Cancer, Autism & Cardiovascular Patients a Second Chance At Health, by Roger V. Kendall, PhD. The research for using DMG for autism started in Europe but has now spread to the United States.

Other Possible Causes (including mercury from vaccinations)

There are several other things that are known to cause the symptoms of autism:

1) Aspartame (e.g. Equal), Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), etc. (taken by pregnant women),

2) Chemicals in cosmetics (used by pregnant women),

3) Food allergies in autistic children,

4) Reaction to proteins found in cow’s milk or wheat,

5) Leaky Gut Syndrome,

6) Heavy Metals (e.g. mercury from vaccinations),

7) Soy milk started at too young an age (this causes the excess of a mineral),

An excellent consultant for autism, where mercury is the culprit, is Dr. Carley:

Site Articles / Websites on Autism, ADD and ADHD
Autism Mercury Poisoning This site claims that autism is caused by a unique kind of mercury poisoning
If that is true, the cure would more likely be chelation treatments, such as
Pure Body Extra Strength and Original Pure Body, Vitamin C, EDTA Chelation, Super LifeGlow, etc.
