Jenny McCarthy claims son 'recovered' from autism
Jenny McCarthy claims son 'recovered' from autism

Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey claim they have taken measures and effectively "cured" Jenny's son Evan's autism.

Autism is a debilitating disorder suffered by 1 in 150 kids, making it more common than childhood cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined.

Carrey and McCarthy claim in their op/ed piece on CNN that "England and Ireland reported that autism is affecting one in 58 individuals."

McCarthy is convinced that vaccines were at the root of her son's autism.

McCarthy writes, "when we say "recovering" from autism. They confuse the word recover with cure. While you may not be able to cure an injury caused in a terrible car accident, you can recover."

She notes that the observable symptoms of autism can be cured.

"We believe what helped Evan recover was starting a gluten-free, casein-free diet, vitamin supplementation, detox of metals, and anti-fungals for yeast overgrowth that plagued his intestines. Once Evan's neurological function was recovered through these medical treatments, speech therapy and applied behavior analysis helped him quickly learn the skills he could not learn while he was frozen in autism."

Her doctors now claim that Evan's diagnosis may have been wrong.

"When Evan meets doctors and neurologists, to this day they tell us he was misdiagnosed -- that he never had autism to begin with. It's as if they are wired to believe that children can't recover from autism," says McCarthy.

McCarthy spoke with many parents of autistic children who feel like she does that vaccines are the root of the problem.

She writes: "We think our health authorities don't want to open this can of worms, so they don't even look or listen. While there is strong debate on this topic, many parents of recovered children will tell you they didn't treat their child for autism; they treated them for vaccine injury."

McCarthy believes that autism is "an environmental illness."

"..When it comes to vaccines we are operating as if our kids have a universal tolerance for them. We are acting like ONE SIZE FITS ALL. That is, at the very least, a huge improbability."

McCarthy and Carrey note that parents need to question the amount of vaccines adminstered so early in a child's life.

Unfortunately.

They'd probably rather keep on blaming rather than take responsibility for making change.

My two grandsons, not twins, have autism. It is a very costly process to recover from this condition. We spend thousands of dollars a month. But they are being mainstreamed and are now like "normal" children. I think that there obviously is a genetic link, but I also think that the vaccines trigger this predisposition.

Re: Jenny McCarthy claims son 'recovered' from autism
More power to her, this took alot of effort.

My twins had a teacher who's child was diagnosed with autism. The child was in a school that offered ABA (applied behavior analysis) for children with autism. The child received instruction at school, but the parents had to administer instruction at least 3 to 4 hours a day at home. My twins, their cousin, and my son got active with the teacher and did a community service activity for her. Each day each child would come to help with the ABA program. The teacher handled the weekend. She did all the vitamin enhansements and glueten, soy, and dairy diets for the child. That was 5 years ago, the child is not in a normal 2nd grade classroom. He is a genious and our families are touched by giving to another person and touching his life in such a permanent way.

Since we knew about autism and the methods for handling the children, we offered sitting arrangements so the parents could have time together.

What would be wonderful in this world is if people would just do something for others not looking for a return. My return is just that I have children (currently 16- 19) that know how effortless it is to just help another in need.

It really does put tears in your eyes to see the love and compassion for this child and the child's love and compassion for us.

Re: Jenny McCarthy claims son 'recovered' from autism
I have three young children, so I have more than a passing interest in issues that may affect their health.

With all due respect to McCarthy, this article of hers perpetuates some horrible myths and provides not one whit of evidence for her "feeling" that vaccines are an autism risk.

There is simply no evidence of this. A study of half a million Danish children found no correlation between the MMR vaccine and autism. That's a mighty big sample space, big enough to spot even small correlations. A Swedish study of children born before and after the introduction of the MMR vaccine found no increase in the incidence of autism.

Is autism on the rise? That's not an easy question to answer, as the scope of autism spectrum diagnoses has widened significantly in the last few decades, so many children are being classified as autistic, Aspergers or PDD-NOS that would have been overlooked in the past. But even if you account for this, it is quite possible that the incidence of these disorders is indeed on the rise. But there are any number of environmental factors that may be leading to this; singling out vaccines in spite of the lack of evidence may be counterproductive if it leads to other factors being overlooked. McCarthy herself lists a number of things she altered in her son's environment in her efforts to remediate his condition, such as changes in diet. Who is to say that one or more of these factors are not the primary causative agents of the diagnostic increase?

Given the forum on which I am posting this, it is quite likely that the two studies I listed above will be rejected on the grounds that Big Pharma "obviously" would have exerted influence to distort the results. But there is another study which blows this out of the water.

Japan discontinued use of MMR in the early Nineties. Nearly an entire generation of Japanese children have never been exposed to this supposed causative agent. And yet the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders has not dropped. In fact, it has continued to increase at a rate commensurate with nations that have not dropped use of the vaccine. There simply is no link between vaccines and autism.

It is natural for parents of ASD children to want to find some cause, someone to blame rather than God or the universe. Unfortunately, many of them have latched onto vaccines as that cause, and no amount of studies showing the contrary, and there are dozens of them, can stop some people from clinging to their scapegoat.

Does this mean that vaccines are safe? No, not necessarily. There are some vaccines that led to a slight increase in encephalitis, for example. Vaccines should never be immune to study and criticism. But the risk with unsubstantiated opinions like McCarthy's are that it will lead to vaccination in general being rejected, rather than leading to an informed examination of which particular vaccines present risks, and whether the chance of adverse reactions are worth leaving children open to diseases that carry their own sometimes substantial health risks.

Well, that certainly sounds like an informed opinion.

Are you claiming that autism didn't exist before modern vaccines? You did say all cases.

How do you explain the numerous studies that have found no link, and the Japanese situation?

Re: Jenny McCarthy claims son 'recovered' from autism
I have a 9 year old autistic son who was perfectly normal until he received his vaccinations at 2.3 years of age. He is my third son so I was not a "new" mom. I have "before" and "after" videos. After his shots, he spiked a high fever and screamed for 5 days straight. He was never the same after that. I know for a fact and with 100% conviction that my son became autistic from his vaccinations. I have done many of the things Jenny McCarthy has done (even before her son was born) and my son has gotten much better. He is in a "typical" class and no one even (except his teacher and close family) knows he is autistic.

Bless you for the hard work. It is very difficult to do the work described in this article. My children were the support group for a family that has gone thru this. I saw the difficulty daily, and I'm so proud of my children for the contribution to help others in need. I have to believe that we have set an example for others to follow. Get involved, help other families going thru this. Children coming out of autism need understanding, love, support, and encouragement. Comdemnation should be saved for the medical community.

IT IS DIFFICULT and those that KNOW are doing this without the mainstream medical association. They have just stuck their head in the same for money. I'm more sad for what they have done, and I am proud to be a part of the awakening.

We can gain control of our world with we just work together.

In an article in Science, March 4, 1977, Jonas and Darrell Salk warn that. "Live virus vaccines against influenza or poliomyelitis may in each instance produce the disease it intended to prevent—the live virus against measles and mumps may produce such side effects as encephalitis (brain damage)."

Re: Jenny McCarthy claims son 'recovered' from autism
I wonder if this brain disease in children who receive vaccinations is really autism? I wonder if it isn't something else that just looks like autism. Because you cannot "recover" from autism. But people can make strong recoveries against other types of brain disease/damage, think stroke victims.

My grandson is a high-functioning autistic with Asperger's and ADHD.

He was a normal child until age 18 months. When he got his vaccinations at that age, he came to my house a few hours later, and I cared for him because his parents were going on a trip. He ran fevers at that juncture, he grew VERY uncomfortable, and we watched his eyes glaze over.

Who was once a vibrant toddler, normal in every way, is now struggling to dig his way out of the mental entrapment that autism creates.
