The Mystery of Autism?

Last night I watched Larry King's program on The Mystery of Autism. I've seen several programs about this recently, and each time as I listen to those who struggle with answers to this "mystery," I wish I could talk to them face to face and say, There is no mystery to autism! When we can think about ourselves as energy beings that live in the constantly changing matter that we create, and we then think about, for instance, the trauma that can be created when a baby is delivered by forceps, it ought to give us pause and begin a new track of thinking about this "mystery." Not all autism is created by forceps, but a large percentage is. Forceps began to be used in the 1700s, in obstructed labor, and, as with other tools in our world, came to be used routinely instead. Think of the "jelly" of our brain as our primary nervous system, the amazing power and fragility of an infant ready to be born into the physical world, and then imagine the force of a steel instrument enforcing the process of birth. Doesn't this sound like an abuse to the beautiful energy of a newborn baby, as well as to the birthing mother?

I have worked with a few autistic children using Neural Depolarization, my trademarked energy therapy which works directly with the nervous system, beginning with the brain. NDP is a gentle but powerful touch therapy, which uses the energy of our nervous system to heal diseases. I understand that it is not always easy to accept how easy it can be to heal "energy diseases," and how addicted we have become to the "fact" of disease. This includes autism, in its growing presence as an epidemic in our world. The energy of children in their open celebration of being alive and constantly in motion is one that we must understand and support in love, which includes our educating ourselves about the necessity of eating good, pure food, breathing pure air, and drinking lots of good water. Our fear of change and thinking of ourselves as energy first and matter second is what we must change to answer the "mystery" of autism. I love working with people with autism to balance their energy and give them back their thinking mind.

Most pregnant women pay attention to eating well, even if this pattern only stays in place while they are pregnant. What must be emphasized, then, is what does "eating well" mean? Fresh, organic foods are essential to our health, and the health of our children. The toxins we are exposed to, and that we expose ourselves to, create great potential risk and subsequent disease results that we will then have to work with to change. What we do not yet look at beyond the physical chemical components and effects is that the autism spectrum is an energy disease.
