AutismOne on Healing Autism: Accidental Cure by Optimists

by Simon Yu, MD

Accidents happen. We accept the reality of them as is and we usually move on. On the other hand, accidental discovery is another story. For some people, they ask questions like, “why me?” Or keep asking for a deeper meaning: Is this really an accident or a message to understand? An accident is a fertile ground to find out if you are a pessimist or optimist.

Tom Jacobs, story teller from Kansas City, recently told a story about a pessimist and optimist: Two sales men were assigned to Africa in the early years of the shoe industry to sell their shoes. One week later, one salesman telegrammed to his boss, “Business situation in Africa is hopeless. Nobody wears shoes”. On the other side of the continent, the other salesman excitedly telegrammed to his boss, “Unlimited potential in Africa. Nobody wears shoes!”

I don’t know about you but I would rather be an optimist. I always encourage my patients to look at the bright side and be cautiously optimistic no matter how grim their conditions might be. Hope is a powerful driving force to promote healing. Pessimists do not call themselves pessimists. Just realists.

Today, I saw a 77 year old patient with a history of chronic pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis and rheumatoid arthritis with a recent diagnosis of stage one bladder cancer. She has been depressed and joined a cancer support group because of feeling a sense of hopelessness.

After a long discussion, I told her how lucky she is that her lung and rheumatoid conditions have been stable and she has only a relatively benign early stage of bladder cancer. I told her if you are going to have cancer, this is the kind of cancer to have and she should be thankful. All of a sudden, her doom and gloom mood was lifted with a broad smile. The rest of our session was uplifting.

The AutismOne 2013 conference was held in Chicago during Memorial Day weekend. I was invited to give a talk on parasites, allergies. and autism. Autism is not my field. I usually see adults as an Internist. However, beginning in 2012, I have been seeing autistic children with rather interesting responses. In May 2013, I wrote an article about a medical hypothesis of a relationship between parasite infection and autism in preparation for my lecture for the AutismOne conference.

I attended a full day of lectures and was awestruck by the thousands of autism parents from all over the country attending the lectures. Multiple lectures were conducted by many autism specialists at the same time covering a large variety of topics. This conference was driven by a grass roots movement of parents with a hope to help their children. Here is a short synopsis of the lectures.

Dr. Anju Usman, MD from the Chicago area covered gut-brain connection and biofilms by pathogens in the gut. Symptoms such as depression, anxiety, poor attention and focus, and obsessive compulsive behaviors may be related to the delicate balance of bugs which produce a mucous slime known as biofilm.

Andreas Ludwig Kalcker, Ph.D. Bio-Physicist from Spain, who studied under German bio-physicist Fritz Albert Popp, Ph.D., discussed parasites in depth. He demonstrated a successful treatment for more than 65 children around the world with his parasite protocol over a one year period.

Kerry Rivera, from Mexico, one of the main leaders of the group running the AutismOne conference, showed many cases of successfully treated autistic children including her child. She has been using chlorine dioxide in conjunction with diet, nutritional supplements, detox, and hyperbaric oxygen.

By the time I presented my medical hypothesis on parasite infection and autism, they had already had numerous discussions about parasites and had been saying all along how parasite infection might be one of the major underlying problems for autism that has been overlooked. I felt like I was repeating what had already been presented.

Dr. Andreas Kalcker and Kerry Rivera collaborated using chlorine dioxide for two years with prescribed parasite medications, albendazole and pyrantel pamoate, to turn around autistic children. Professionally, I have no experience using chlorine dioxide on my patients. The difference with my therapy was that I was using acupuncture meridian assessment as a guide to detect and treat parasites.

If what they are reporting is even partially true for these autistic children, it would be a major breakthrough in the autism community. Some of the audience was crying in excitement but some were skeptical and saying it sounded too good to be true. I could feel the excitement of the audience but also a sense of fear that Kerri Rivera and Andreas Ludwig Kalcker will be attacked by special interest groups. Chlorine dioxide is too inexpensive to a fault.

Is this an accidental finding leading into an accidental cure for autism? It is too early to tell but any chronic medical conditions like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s dementia, or autism seems driven by epigenetic influences from environmental toxins, parasites, hidden dental problems, and faulty diet and nutrition.

I spent several hours with Andreas Kalcker after our lectures were over. We found a common ground for treating parasites: his experience as a bio-physicist and my experience as a military medical officer. Few people truly understand and are aware of the magnitude of parasite problems. This man was very passionate to rescue these children from the scourge of autism.

Kerri Rivera just published a book called Healing Autism. I just finished the book. This book is for everyone but especially for both autism parents and all medical professionals involved in the care of autistic children. The book contains much important information that is not available in the main stream autism community.

Most pediatricians might be sympathetic but they are rather pessimistic regarding the care of autistic children. Andreas Kalcker and Kerri Rivera are true optimists in the midst of skeptics and pessimists. They see unlimited potential for the cure for autism based on diet, nutrition, and parasite eradications using chlorine dioxide and parasite medications. If you want to know more about autism and what is possible, I highly recommend reading Healing Autism by Kerri Rivera. The book explains in detail the Kelcker parasite protocol.
