Heaven forbid you deprive them on the belief that they're suffering from a six-week herx....

***megadoses of Vitamin C tore up the lining of my stomach and caused diarrhea.
pure sodium chloride is toxic and caused major bloating which aggravated my joint pain.****
Other harmful effects of excessive salt intake: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt#Health_effects

So the 'logic' seems to go (correct me if I am wrong!): people are giving and/or telling other people to use this salt/C 'therapy'--nothing on salt/apple yet--to autistic kids to treat parasites because 20-30% of them have Lyme disease, and Lyme patients are loaded with worms (often microscopic) - http://www.lymephotos.com/

Further, the percentage of autistic patients who have Lyme, of course, is no longer 90%--the original figure derived from 'personal communications' with 5 unknown and unnamed doctors. The new figure of 20-30% is derived also from 'personal communications' from named sources.


Is this right--more or less?

Autism: More evidence suggests a link to Lyme disease

Autism: More evidence suggests a link to Lyme disease

14 February 2008

Up to a third of all cases of autism may be the result of Lyme disease and other chronic infections, new research suggests.

Researcher Robert Bransfield believes that tick-borne infections, such as Lyme disease, can weaken the immune system during infancy and make the sufferer more vulnerable to autistic-spectrum diseases.

He estimates that between 20 per cent and 30 per cent of all autistic children may be infected by Lyme disease or other similar infections.

If so, it means that 140,000 autistic children in the USA alone have the problem as a direct result of an infection. If they were treated with high-dose antibiotics – considered to be the most effective therapy, especially in the early stages of infection – the savings in healthcare and education costs would amount to around $358bn, he estimates.

NEW DATA! Professor Garth Nicolson releases
new information on the multiple infections which
exist in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Read the below article to find that in fact what we
have been saying is true. He found that 20-30% of ASD children
are infected with Borrelia Burgdorferi, in addition
to mycoplasma and several other infections.
Read it for yourself.

Lyme Disease and Autism?

5:49 AM PDT, May 8, 2007, updated at 6:02 AM PDT, May 8, 2007

One of the most important aspects of your Lyme Disease education is to realize that Lyme Disease can in fact mimic nearly any health condition, from multiple sclerosis and depression to chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.

New information supports a strong connection between Lyme Disease and Autism.

Evidence for the link between Lyme Disease and Autism is so strong that several Lyme/Autism organizations have sprung into existence. Moreover, conferences on the topic are even happening. On June 22-24 will be held the "Lyme-Autism Connection Conference" in Irvine, CA. Here is the information:

http://www.lymeinducedautism.com/semina ... %20on.html


According to Charles Ray Jones, M.D.:

"Physicians, parents and patients from across the country are invited to learn about Lyme disease and it's impact on our children. Hundreds, if not thousands of children have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease and Autism. It's time to bring the experts from each of these areas together to find answers for our kids. Please join us and learn about proper testing, diagnosis, the unique needs of an autistic child and participate in the physicians training to search for the best treatments. This conference is appropriate for parents of children diagnosed with autism, Lyme disease , add/adhd, asperger's syndrome or adults with Lyme disease."

I hope someone who goes there can tell us what Dr. S. Harris had to say.

Fingers crossed that he's there as a 'leveling' influence. Fingers crossed!
