As a parent with autism, we hear lots of stories as to the cause and about cures. MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution) was originally formulated by Jim Humble of Genesis II Church in the U.S. Genesis II Church is a nonreligious organization of “health and healing.” MMS is claimed to be a cure for Autism, Alzheimer’s, cancer, malaria and HIV/AIDS. A. Stout has written an article “Don’t Believe the Hype; This ‘Cure’ for autism is actually deadly.”
I want to also share with you there is no current cure for the disability. Only through therapy can you manage and treat it. Next time you are approached from the snake oil medicine man or woman, turn the other way. Keep your faith. We all want to know the cause to prevent future children and adults from going through this terrible disease and we also want to find the cure. More and more medical professionals are starting to tackle these questions. We can support and stay aware to advocate on behalf of our children. Continue to stay informed to avoid fake cures.
