How Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy's Son Recovered From Autism

In this CNN op-ed piece, actors Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy reflect on their son's recovery from autism in light of the recent federal court decision which conceded that vaccines could have contributed to another child's autistic condition.
Carrey and McCarthy's son, Evan, has been healed thanks to breakthroughs that may not be scientifically proven, but have definitely helped, such as a gluten-free, casein-free diet, vitamin supplementation, detox of metals, and anti-fungals for the yeast overgrowths that plagued his intestines. Once his neurological function was recovered through these medical treatments, speech therapy and applied behavior analysis helped him learn the skills he could not learn while he was frozen in autism.
When Evan was re-evaluated after these treatments, state workers were amazed by his improvement. But although Evan is now 5, not a single member of the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, or any other health authority has asked to evaluate and understand how Evan recovered from autism. Instead, they simply posit that he was misdiagnosed and never had autism to begin with.
Carrey and McCarthy believe that autism is an environmental illness, and that while vaccines are not the only environmental trigger, they do play a major role. Even if the CDC is not convinced of a link between vaccines and autism, changing the vaccine schedule should be seriously considered as a precautionary measure.

CHIROPRACTIC IN THE NEWS

NBC's Today Show Discusses Chiropractic, Stroke
Last Friday's episode of the ever-popular Today Show included a
segment titled, "How to Avoid a Stroke." While the segment
discussed the association between chiropractic and
vertebrobasilar artery stroke, the show's medical expert noted
there is "no definitive link" between the two. She also said
that women should be much more concerned about risk factors like
obesity, hypertension, and smoking, than chiropractic. In his
letter to Today, ACA President Dr. Glenn Manceaux said he
appreciated the show's concerted effort to not unnecessarily
alarm viewers. He also offered the show's producers a copy of
the recent study from the medical journal Spine.

Really, how much water should you drink?

I agree with mayoclinic.com's guidelines http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/library/NU/00283.html

To counter argue the recent articles of late e.g. http://wireless.go.com/wireless/abcnews/section/topstories/4574553_1?&page=1necessity We need 8 8 oz of *clean*, pure filtered water.

They argue against flushing out toxins with water but you try this experiment at home: flush your toilet only half a tank. Does this get rid of ALL of the toxins in your toilet, less your house? Help the occupants of your body, your cells, live in a less toxic environment.

Drink your clean water.

Restore your youth with supplements for your brain

The HPAA is the key to the strength of
our Life-Force and is often central to most health problems,
syndromes, diseases, and even aging itself. Our special line of supplements assists
in bringing balance to the HPAA. Ask us about our HPAA balancing supplements that is right for you.

Why is our HPAA out of balance? Stress, caffeine overuse, depletion of nutrients in our soils giving nutrient-poor foods...the list goes on.

All physiological processes, growth and development - and disease -
can be described at the cellular level. If your cells are healthy,
then you will be healthy.

"Miscommunication between the cells is part of the reason for
progressive aging and disease. This is why our organs begin to fail as
we age. If we can improve cellular signaling as we age, we will be
able to better support our cells, tissues and organs. Our bodies will
function better and our health and well-being will improve. We will be
able to achieve optimum health and this is what our supplements seeks
to do when it balances the HPA Axis", says Dr Tim Chapman, MD.

Once the HPAA is balanced, hormones are restored to their more
youthful levels, cellular signaling improves, balance is reinstated
(the body reaches homeostasis) and cell receptor site sensitivity is
improved.

Autism Awareness Day - Is There a Cure?

After reading many sad but inspiring stories such as this one about a divorced mother contemplating suicide, I've read hope-giving stories as the one written by Amy Lansky, Ph.D.. on her child and how she alleviated autism through homeopathy.
