Mark Geier, MD, PhD
Dr. Richard Moskowitz
This talk will present biologically based evidence that children with Down syndrome are uniquely susceptible to injury from vaccines. With an 18% ASD comorbidity, we will explore the mechanisms that may connect vaccines to autism in this highly vulnerable population. The relationship of vaccines to Alzheimer’s will also be discussed.
Layman’s terms will be used to explain the folate cycle and its implication to the health risks for a mother with a Down syndrome child. Topics to be discussed include: depression, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer and risk for having a child with autism. Strategies to minimize these risks will be presented.
Laurette is the mother of a child with ASD, down syndrome and leukemia. She helped coordinate a study on metabolic biomarkers and impaired methylation capacity in children with autism published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2004. She is currently on the board and research committee for SafeMinds.
David will share his stories of success and challenges to starting exercise programs for our children and adults. Through the use of visual, sensory and tactile supports you will do exercise to add to your child's routine. Research will show exercise's physical and cognitive benefits to improving motor planning, language development, social skills and behaviors.
Karen Kain mother of Lorrin who was grievously vaccine injured in 1994, shares her story of how she went from being a broken-hearted, desperate mother who was isolated and alone to accepting, enjoying and even thriving as the parent of a unique child. Lorrin, always the girly girl, celebrated life and Karen shares the process that led her to a loving and fulfilling parenting experience.
A method of successful treatment for regressive autism, where in 1 year more than 65 children have been able to reduce former ATEC from over 50 to less than 10, or a so-called full recovery. The successful treatment has been completely different to mainstream medicine, focusing to the cause of parasitic toxicity experienced in their bodies, causing irrational behavior.
This day will answer questions about how to transform your kitchen into a healing tool and provide you information on what is real in the kitchen and what is not. You will also begin to unlock the answers you already have as well as doing this as cost effectively and efficiently as possible.
This presentation will show how you can start Mending Autism today. Children on the autism spectrum have many treatable medical conditions including abnormal sleep, allergies, constipation, diarrhea, metabolic and immune system dysfunctions. When these medical conditions are treated, the autistic behaviors improve dramatically. The children become more responsive to their therapies and shed many of their behavioral and social problems
EBCALA recently submitted an amicus brief to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in G.M. v. Saddleback Valley Unified School District. G.M., a mother of a child with disabilities, appealed to the Ninth Circuit after the District Court ordered her to pay the District’s attorneys fees. Jennifer Keefe and Tim Adams will discuss the negative impacts such awards would have on families and children with disabilities including children with autism.
Both hypothyroidism and autism are rising significantly in incidence. Is there a connection? This lecture focuses on the developmental impact of environmental toxins that interfere with thyroid hormone (TH), a key hormone involved in regulation of brain development, as a possible factor in autism. Also, hypothyroidism during pregnancy has been proposed as one of the 12 autism risk factors. Dr. Kellman will discuss, too, why routine blood tests frequently are misleading.
Has been involved in the fight to hold government health agencies responsible for the vaccine-induced autism epidemic. Kennedy's article Deadly Immunity chronicled the cover up by the CDC and FDA blasting the agencies for putting politics before science. He comes to the conference with a new book that further exposes the dangers of thimerosal and ongoing corruption of the CDC.
This report will present findings from a comparison of 30 children with autism and matched
controls on a measure of somatic mutation, levels of elements, volatile organic compounds,
and pesticides, and immunological studies. Initial results support the presence of increased
somatic mutation at statistical significance, toxicant exposure, immune dysregulation, and loss of immune tolerance in children with autism compared to controls.
