So why should you read on? Because in order to understand the science behind possible treatments, you need to know what's really going on in your child's body.

Vaccines contain a variety of toxins, including mercury in many cases. With under-developed immune systems, babies and young children can simply become overwhelmed by the toxins and pathogens in these vaccines and as a consequence, the toxins can get stored in the child’s cells. This toxin buildup prevents the brain from functioning properly. According to the CDC's own website, common ingredients in vaccines include:

Antibiotics (which many children are allergic to)
Aluminum gels (which can, if there is a silicon deficiency, cause brain conditions like those exhibited in Alzheimer's disease)
Formaldehyde (a known carcinogen)
Monosodium glutamate or MSG (a potent excito-toxin capable of causing seizures, brain tumors and more)
Egg protein (which can cause a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction in children allergic to eggs)
Sulfites (another common allergen)

If you are not already aware of the vaccine/autism connection visit this web page to read an article written by Robert Kennedy Jr. on this very subject.

Rebecca Carley, MD reports, "…The CDC fails to mention that the ethyl-mercury containing preservative thimerosal has been found in many vaccines, and still is in some.”

Vaccines are designed to stimulate the immune system, but a newborn's immune system is not yet developed so there is not much for the vaccine to stimulate. Therefore, it may help the parent feel as though they are protecting their child but in reality, it hasn’t protected anything. It has only contributed some toxins to the infants system which can help in the development of autism.

The MMR vaccine contains three strains of viruses so it exposes a small child to more viruses than its underdeveloped immune system can handle.

Dr. Carley makes the point though, that there is a fatal flaw in vaccines themselves that can lead to autism, autoimmune conditions and other diseases. This is why the MMR vaccine leads to autism even though it has no mercury in it. She writes:
“... secretory IgA (an antibody found predominately in saliva and secretions of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tract mucosa) is the initial normal antibody response to all airborne and ingested pathogens. IgA helps protect against viral infection, agglutinate bacteria, neutralize microbial toxins, and decrease attachment of pathogens to mucosal surfaces....
Bypassing this mucosal aspect of the immune system by directly injecting organisms into the body [via vaccines] leads to a corruption in the immune system itself whereby IgA is transmuted into IgE, and/or the B cells are hyper-activated to produce pathologic amounts of self-attacking anti-bodies as well as suppression of cytotoxic T cells.

As a result, the pathogenic viruses or bacteria cannot be eliminated by the immune system and remain in the body, where they cause chronic disease and thus further grow and/or mutate as the individual is exposed to ever more antigens and toxins in the environment....”

There is another factor with vaccines that leads to the development of autism. Dr. Carley explains, “The antigens present in the culture media itself [on which the viruses used to make the vaccine are grown] cannot be completely filtered and separated from the organisms cultured thereon [the vaccine's viruses]. Thus, any antibodies formed against antigens from the culture cells themselves (for example myelin basic protein from chick embryos or the 13 vaccines which now contain aborted human fetal cells) can cross-react to form an autoimmune reaction against the myelin basic protein in your myelin sheath, etc.”

This autoimmune reaction is crucial in the development of autism. The destruction of the myelin sheath protecting the nerves is one of the primary causative factors for autism.

So not only do vaccines overload the child with toxins, they may start autoimmune responses against the nerve fibers in the brain, exposing and damaging them.
The myelin sheath continues to grow until about age 10. It is important to stop this damage as early as possible, so that the nerves myelin sheath can grow normally and recover from the damage.

Further evidence against the idea that autism is a genetic disease:

Research looking at children who had developed autism back in the 1930s shows that every child with autism had a parent who was working in situation where they were in contact mercury. Mercury was much more commonly used in industry and agriculture in the ’30s and the fact that every case of autism back then was connected to mercury exposure thru their parents occupations is a clear sign that mercury is a fundamental problem in autism.

Lyme Disease May Cause 20% of the cases of Autism

Researchers recently discovered the Lyme disease bacteria Borrelia can cause autism in some children. Fetuses and babies that hadn't been exposed to ticks were infected with Lyme disease. How could this be? Apparently, this bacterium can be passed by human exposure, from mother to child for example. It tends to run in families, passing from parents to children. If left untreated, it causes brain damage and many other hard to diagnose symptoms commonly found in autistic children. This discovery led the researchers to find Borrelia in many autistic children and their families.

Environmental Toxins May Cause 10% of Autism.

Children are exposed to thousands of chemicals, including:
Pesticide and herbicide residues on non-organic food
Household cleaners and laundry detergent
Carpets and construction materials
Air pollution from burning fossil fuels and plastics
On their own, these substances usually are not enough to cause autism or its related syndromes. But when toxins, mercury and aluminum laden vaccines add to the burden, the toxic overload may reach a breaking point. However, if a child has inadvertently been exposed to dangerous levels of environmental toxins, these toxins can cause autism on their own.

So why can't the child's body gradually get rid of the toxins and recover? Or to put the question another way...
Why do only some vaccinated children, or children with Lyme disease or excess toxins, develop autism?

Glutathione's Connection to Autism

Glutathione is a protein that should be found in every cell in your body. It is your bodies main cellular detoxifier. The liver and the lungs use a lot of it to cleanse the blood and the air we breathe.

Research shows that glutathione is deficient in children with autism.

Glutathione is a substance produced by the body when proteins are broken down into amino acids. If a child is unable to properly break down the proteins into amino acids, then the body will not have enough amino acids to make glutathione.

Type A blood could signal protein digestion issues

There is a high rate of Type A blood in autistic boys and in general, children with type A blood usually have a harder time digesting proteins. Type A’s usually have a hard time digesting poultry, red meat, cow's milk, cheese and whole eggs.

They usually have an easier time digesting fish, egg whites, gluten, soy products, nuts and seeds.
Candida yeast infections inhibit glutathione production
Candida is yeast that is supposed to exist only in small amounts in the intestinal flora. When a mother has an overgrowth that has spread throughout her body, her baby is infected during birth. The baby's undeveloped immune system cannot kill the Candida, and the friendly bacteria the baby should have picked up from her mother are missing so, Candida overgrowth develops in the baby. Toxins, vaccines, antibiotics and chlorinated water also kill friendly bacteria, and allow Candida to overgrow.

A child with Candida overgrowth cannot properly digest protein. So they can't produce enough glutathione to replace what gets used up in cleaning environmental toxins and the heavy metals in the vaccines they have been given. Consequently, a baby with Candida is more likely to be harmed by vaccinations and develop autism, than is a baby who has no Candida overgrowth.
In addition, Candida yeast produce large amounts of toxins. They also consume mercury in the body, and turn it into a form that is more likely to disrupt the brain and nervous system.

Author's Bio: 

My name is Robert Harrison. I am 60 years old and hold a Masters in Education from the University of New Mexico.
I began work on the Get Healthy Again.com website in 2000 and started selling products online a year later.
In the early 90’s, I started marketing whole food blue green algae products after learning about autoimmune diseases and products to use for them. Over the next 20 years, as I continued to research and learn about the causes of other health issues, such as cancer, diabetes, candida, autism, osteoporosis and more, I came across exceptional products that helped to correct them. I expanded my companies product line to include those products and began creating additional websites to address these issues.
My main area of expertise is an ability to compile information on ill health conditions and to tell you in simple terms, the underlying causes of those conditions and what you can do about them. Conditions like Candida. Unfortunately, many health professionals use medical language that is very hard to understand and offer treatment suggestions that are focused on pharmaceutical drugs that almost never work well. Others may focus on just one aspect of the condition in an attempt to promote a particular product or group of products and some simply deny the possibility of Candida causing any ill health issues.
I feel that my purpose has been to inform people about the healthy alternative treatments that are available to them.
