(NaturalNews) Over the last 15 years, the autism diagnosis rate has increased from 1 in 10,000 to an alarming 1 in 250. There are many speculations about the cause of this startling increase. Research studies show a definite correlation between the increase in autism and the introduction of new immunizations, particularly those having thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative. Researchers have focused on the idea that cocktail immunizations as a whole have a causative relationship with autism. However, scientists are shifting to the concept that mercury poisoning alone is the culprit. Evidence supports that mercury exposure has indirectly increased the rate of autism diagnosis in America over the last 15 years, leading some doctors and parents to try the calcium bentonite detox method as a treatment for autistic children.
A new study shows overwhelming support that symptoms of mercury poisoning mimic the signs of autism. In a recent study, a group of parents used available research to assemble a list of the 75 most common symptoms of autism and the 75 most common symptoms of mercury poisoning and found the two lists to be virtually identical. These symptoms include difficulties in social environments, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, flailing of the arms and hitting their head on walls or other surfaces. Researchers have even ventured to say that mercury poisoning is autism, and undoubtedly, these similarities have led to misdiagnosis and confusion about the disability.
Mercury Detox Treats Autism
A study in Alternative Therapies reported that vaccinated autistic children had three times more mercury in their urine than others, proving a definite correlation between mercury levels and symptoms of autism. Consequently, when autistic children were given calcium bentonite clay baths at least twice a week, physicians and parents saw a significant reduction in their symptoms within three months. One article says this about the use of calcium bentonite clay in the treatment of mercury poisoning and autism: "parents of autistic children will see significant improvement in functioning, even to the extent of their child no longer qualifying as autistic."
Calcium bentonite detox has been revealed as a promising treatment for autistic children. Where the children weren't considered cured, they did show consistent and significant reduction in symptoms.
What is Calcium Bentonite Clay?
Calcium bentonite clay, also referred to as "Living Clay," can be used as a soak or taken internally. The clay is scientifically proven to prevent and treat mercury poisoning and significantly reduce or even cure symptoms of autism. Users experienced the best results when combining bath soaks with oral doses. Negatively charged ions in the clay literally pull the positively charged mercury from the body.
Here's how to use it:
(1) Purchase natural calcium bentonite clay with a pH of 9.0 or higher. (2) Add 1-2 cups to a bath twice a week. (3) Take 1-2 ounces of drinkable liquid calcium bentonite clay twice daily.
