Adults are now being diagnosed with autism after vaccination. This is one woman’s story after she received the meningitis vaccine in college. Listen to what she has to say, since she can speak and explain, this is what a lot of babies are feeling. The University she got the vaccine at hid her records and denied that she ever got the vaccine. She had kept a card that was stamped proving she was vaccinated. Then her doctor dropped her and sent her home to die.
n this video, Ms. Stephanie Arnold recalls her severe reaction to a meningitis vaccine in college and her subsequent diagnosis of adult onset autism. She later recovered due to biomedical interventions.
Stephanie Arnold is an elementary art teacher in Howard county, Maryland. In this interview, Miss Arnold describes how in college, at the age of 21, she received a meningitis vaccine and suffered a devastating reaction. Many of her symptoms mirrored that of regressive autism, and in fact she did at one point receive a diagnosis of “adult onset autism.” Miss Arnold recovered with the help of a detox and supplementation program designed by Mary Megson, MD, but still suffers from some lingering sensory issues and other symptoms unless she is diligent with her supplementation protocol. This interview was filmed at the Autism One conference in Chicago in May, 2009.
The Vaccine-Autism Connection
Although a vaccine/autism connection has been dismissed repeatedly in the current media, scientific studies that are based on biological processes show a significant link. CDC epidemiological studies also show a strong link of thimerosal to ADD, Learning Disabilities, Speech Delay and Autism (see Geier footage). These studies may not have received high attention in the public as of yet, but the information explaining what health professionals and government and otherwise employed scientists have discovered is in this section.
What is Autism?
Autism is a developmental disability that becomes recognizable between 15 and 20 months of age. Previously, children were considered to be born with the disorder. Now, in most cases, the child progresses normally and then begins to regress losing speech, social skills and physical abilities. Although there are varying degrees of severity, most children completely withdraw into a world of their own.
A frightening aspect of the disorder is that children cannot assess sensory input properly. Autistic children cannot perceive fear or dangerous situations, nor can they filter and ignore stimulus. This sensory overload would be equivalent to being intensely aware of the feel and color of paper, the sensation of each article of clothing you are wearing, every single sound coming from the street and inside the building around you, and the fluorescent lights and every object that reflects the light near you. If a child with autism could read this letter they would have to endure all of this and more while trying to concentrate and comprehend this material. Normal functioning under this kind of sensory bombardment is nearly impossible.
Autistic children typically have a host of biomedical and neurological problems as well. Many suffer from chronic diarrhea because their intestines are so damaged that they cannot absorb vital nutrients, minerals and vitamins essential for optimal brain function. Liver and kidney functions are impaired causing their bodies to store up high levels of toxins found in the environment such as lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic and other heavy metals. Their immune systems are compromised to the extent that they cannot fight off even the simplest of fungal, parasitic and bacterial infections.
The current consensus is… children do not outgrow autism. There is no cure ??? It is a lifelong disability with a normal life expectancy. It affects boys five times more than it affects girls, although girls are generally more severely affected. In the United States more than one and a half million individuals live with autism, making it more prevalent than Down Syndrome, childhood diabetes and childhood cancer combined.
Many children improve with medical help to digest their food and filter out the accumulated toxins. Therapies can help these individuals grow new brain pathways to gain skills. There are cases of recovered autistic children, but at this point the cases are rare. Recovered cases usually include intense one-on-one therapies with a minimum of 40 hours per week, coupled with a sound medical/nutritional program. More research and communication with autism professionals is needed to help recover these precious children, to get them the proper medical and therapeutic interventions.
There may not be a current cure, but we hope and pray that science will be able to catch up with the needs of these children.
