Effective Autism Treatments Trashed by Know-it-All (???) Mother … WHY?
By TLB Contributing Partner: Christina England, BA, Hons
According to a recent report, a study published in November 2018 by the US government showed that approximately 1 in 40 children in the US had been diagnosed with autism. However, these figures appeared to be in stark contrast to those published by the CDC in an earlier report in April 2018, which had reported that 1 in 59 US children had been diagnosed with autism.
The study, reported by the website HARKLA, stated that these findings amounted to at least 1.5 million children diagnosed with the condition in US alone.
HARKLA stated that:
“Autism rates in the United States have increased steadily over the past 10 years.
In 2008, the rates were estimated to be 1 in 125 children and now approximately 1 in 40 children are affected.”
The report, like many others, reported several possible reasons for the sudden increase in the diagnoses. These included:
Rates of autism were higher among low-income families
Children born preterm were more likely to be diagnosed than those who were not
Children born in the US were more likely to be diagnosed than those born in another country
The prevalence of ASD was 47% higher for children with single mothers when compared to children in 2-parent, married households.
All of these reasons could, in theory, be attributed to the rise in the diagnoses of autism. However, we at The Liberty Beacon believe that it should be noted that the increase in vaccinations and the timing of the vaccine mandates could also be attributed to the rise.
Using the chart, published by the website HARKA, we can see that the number of children being diagnosed with autism has been on the increase for many years. If we then study the reasons for the increase given by the government in their report, we could also attribute each and every one of these reasons to an alternate viewpoint.
For example, the government reported that the:
Rates of autism were higher among low-income families.
However, this could also be attributed to the fact that caring for an autistic child around the clock is time-consuming and that many families who have an autistic child have to give up work to care for them.
If this is the case, then it stands to reason that the rates of autism will be higher in low income families because many of these families are no longer able to work due to the fact that they are caring for their autistic child.
The government reported that:
Children born preterm were more likely to be diagnosed than those who were not.
Whilst we would agree that this fact is entirely possible, we would like to draw attention to the fact that more women are being vaccinated during pregnancy today, than ever before and this could, in theory, also account for the rise in premature births.
In an article, titled, Flu Shots During Pregnancy Failed to Lower the Risk of Fetal Death, Preterm Birth and Low Birth Weight that was published by the Children’s Health Defense, they wrote that:
“A research team out of South Africa has just published a paper examining the second rationale, comparing four outcomes—fetal death, low birth weight, small for gestational age birth and preterm birth—for infants whose mothers received flu shots or a placebo. In their surprisingly frank conclusions, not only do the researchers report that influenza vaccination during pregnancy was ineffective in lowering risk for the four outcomes, but—ever so cautiously—they also note that the vaccinated infants fared worse.”
They stated that:
“Unexpectedly (to the researchers), they also found that the average gestational age at birth was lower in the vaccinated versus placebo group—a statistically significant result indicative of a greater risk of preterm birth.”
The government report also claimed:
Children born preterm were more likely to be diagnosed than those who were not.
If this is true and these children then receive multiple vaccinations during their early years, then, according to one study, titled Preterm birth, vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders: a cross-sectional study of 6- to 12-year-old vaccinated and unvaccinated children, they are more likely to develop autism.
The team stated that:
“From about 8% to 27% of extremely preterm infants develop symptoms of autism spectrum disorder, but the causes are not well understood. Preterm infants receive the same doses of the recommended vaccines and on the same schedule as term infants. The possible role of vaccination in neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) among premature infants is unknown, in part because pre-licensure clinical trials of pediatric vaccines have excluded ex-preterm infants. This paper explores the association between preterm birth, vaccination and NDD, based on a secondary analysis of data from an anonymous survey of mothers, comparing the birth history and health outcomes of vaccinated and unvaccinated homeschool children 6 to 12 years of age.”
As part of their discussion, the team wrote that:
“Prematurity is a known risk factor for neurodevelopmental disorders, with 8% to 27% of extremely preterm infants showing symptoms of autism at 6 years of age. Late preterm infants are also reportedly more prone to long-term neurologic sequelae than previously recognized. Premature infants typically receive the same doses of recommended vaccines and on the same schedule as term infants, yet the possible role of vaccination in preterm-associated NDD has not been investigated.”
They concluded that:
“This study compared the birth histories and health outcomes of vaccinated and unvaccinated children and sought to determine the association, if any, between vaccination, preterm birth and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD). Vaccination (i.e., receipt of one of more of the recommended vaccines) was significantly associated with NDD, while preterm birth without vaccination was not. Preterm birth coupled with vaccination, however, was associated with a synergistic increase in the odds of NDD, suggesting the possibility that vaccination could precipitate adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes in preterm infants. These results provide clues to the epidemiology and causation of NDD but question the safety of current vaccination programs for preterm infants. Further research is needed to validate and investigate these findings in order to optimize the impact of vaccines on children’s health.”
Moving on to the next cause for the increase of cases of autism, listed by the government in their November 2018 study:
Children born in the US were more likely to be diagnosed than those born in another country.
The Liberty Beacon believe that this is more of a statement than a cause and that the government’s explanation is possibly due to the fact that the US administers more vaccinations than any other country in the world, and that many of these vaccinations have recently been made mandatory by what we believe to be an overzealous government.
(See – WHO: immunization monitoring/global summary/schedules)
As the US recommends more childhood vaccinations than any other country, could this fact alone be responsible for the growing number of US children being diagnosed with autism?
Finally, according to the government’s study:
The prevalence of ASD was 47% higher for children with single mothers when compared to children in 2-parent, married households.
We believe that the stress of caring for an autistic child faced by a growing number of families is enough to put a strain on even the strongest of marriages.
According to our research, more parents caring for an autistic child file for divorce, than those caring for a child with any other disability. This is a fact that was borne out in an article titled Parents of autistic kids have higher divorce rate, which stated that “parents of children with autism spectrum disorder had a nearly 24% chance of getting divorced, while parents in the other group split about 14% of the time.”
The Liberty Beacon found it interesting that the government’s study, published in November 2018, was careful not to mention many of the above facts. We believe that this may be because much of what we read today is being censored in favor of material written and funded by the pharmaceutical industry.
Whilst websites were once free to advertise and promote natural alternatives, such as vitamins and silicon-rich mineral water, they are now being prevented from doing so.
We have discovered that, in particular, websites that promote natural remedies that aid the recovery of autism, epilepsy and other neurological conditions are finding that they are no longer allowed to promote their information for fear of being attacked.
Websites That Are Now Under Attack
In recent articles, I have listed websites that are coming under attack for promoting their information.
However, despite the fact they are being censored, the professionals behind these websites refuse to be silenced and are still trying their best to help children who suffer from a wide range of debilitating autoimmune and neurological conditions.
Listed below are a few of the professionals that have recently come under attack for promoting and advertising products which have been found to help those children suffering from epilepsy, autism and adverse reactions to vaccination.
The first website that I am going to write about is Acilis. Acilis, who is the sister company to Spritizer, produces a silicon-rich mineral water, sourced from beneath protected Malaysian rain forests. Their water is not only pure and natural, it has also been proven in scientific studies to remove aluminum toxicity from the body and, in doing so, aid in the recovery of autism, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease.
The evidence of this comes not only from the professionals themselves but also the parents of the children suffering from autism, epilepsy and other neurological conditions.
One mother, whose child suffers from epilepsy, wrote:
“Lisa’s epilepsy – how Acilis silicawater is making a difference
“Since my daughter Lisa started drinking Acilis by Spritzer silica water, I am pleased to say she has stopped having seizures from her epilepsy. I am going to share this with her hospital consultant because I want others to know the difference it has made.”
Another mother wrote:
We use Acilis water primarily for my son who has severe Autism with profound and complex difficulties. He has many other disorders alongside ASD. Since we have started giving him Acilis water he has been able to open his bowels regularly with no pain. He has become far more alert and giving eye contact. Overall he has been making so much progress it has been amazing for our family. Thank you.”
A third mother wrote:
To my delight my 2-year old daughter called me ‘Mamma’ for the very first time in her tiny life.
You have no idea how much this means to us as parents. We have a battle that we have to fight with NHS and Local Authorities to get services and help for our children, which they just do not want to do, and then there are conscious minded companies like yours which provide a lifeline for parents like us.”
Can all of these parents and the many others, who have left testimonials on the Acilis website be wrong?
Well, apparently they can. That is, if the callous article in the Mirror online is anything to go by.
On October 16, 2019, the author wrote:
“A British company has been accused of scamming the vulnerable families of autistic kids by flogging them a “ludicrous” quack therapy of expensive silica-rich water.
Silica Waters, run by husband and wife team Rex Garratt and Wendy Latham, claims its product has “beneficial effects.”
The online newspaper continued:
“The site also flags up research which claims a link between autism and high levels of aluminium in the brain, and suggests the water can reduce aluminium levels in the body.
The blurb also suggests other health benefits of drinking silica-rich water regularly include helping MS.”
The report then moved on to attack Professor Christopher Exley, a known supporter of silicon-rich mineral waters, including Acilis. The author wrote:
“But a People probe revealed that the scientist who wrote the papers the company relies upon is controversial academic Professor Chris Exley, who works at Keele University, Staffordshire,
A GoFundMe page to raise funds for Prof Exley was banned amid claims it was promoting “misinformation about vaccines.”
He claimed in a scientific journal that tiny amounts of aluminium in jabs like the MMR are linked to autism.”
The Liberty Beacon would like to point out to the author of this article, Ms. Geraldine Mckelvie, that at no time has Professor Exley stated that the MMR contains aluminum, or suggested that the MMR is linked to autism.
Completely mystified as to why this online newspaper had attacked Acilis water in this way, The Liberty Beacon decided to read their entire article, only to discover that the person who had reported Acilis to the newspaper, was none other than Emma Dalmayne.
Dalmayne, who is the mother of several autistic children, is a known Internet troll. She has not only been reporting mothers to social services for trying to find natural cures for autism, but she has also made continual complaints to newspapers about another professional who is trying to help autistic children, Ms. Kerri Rivera. (More about her later.)
One mother was so upset by the Mirror online article that she decided to write a letter to Ms. Geraldine Mckelvie.
The Liberty Beacon has been given permission to include her letter in full.
“Dear GERALDINE MCKELVIE
I have read your above-named article which refers to a disagreement between a mother of two children with autism and the company which sells Acilis water, and would like to make a few comments.
I am also the mother of a young man who has a diagnosis of autism, and who suffers with a variety of symptoms. I believe this to be common amongst people who have the diagnosis.
My son loves drinking water and ever since he was very young we have encouraged him to do this, along with eating a healthy and varied diet.
I have spent a huge amount of time since my son was diagnosed with autism twenty years ago reading widely about the condition and interventions that could prove helpful, of which there is a vast array. I have also selected with enormous care those interventions which I believed might ease my son’s difficulties, with, I might say, some considerable success.
I am a graduate and consider myself to be well-educated and cautious, especially where my son’s health is concerned. Throughout his life, I have recorded observations of the interventions we have tried. These have been done slowly, methodically and, importantly, separately so that it was possible to see the effects of each change in isolation. In many cases, an intervention has been stopped for a period of time and then re-started, to make sure that the change could be attributed to that intervention and not something else.
Aciliswater has a high level of silica, as do some other brands of bottled water, such as Fiji water.
Dr. Christopher Exley has spent his career studyingaluminiumand its effects on living things. He is considered by many fellow scientists to be pre-eminent in his field and has numerous peer-reviewed papers published in recognised scientific journals. He is not some maverick, fringe outcast that your article tries to suggest.
Dr. Exley’s research has shown that not only isaluminiumtoxic, but that silica binds with aluminium and can help to release aluminium from the body.
There are many case-studies and peer-reviewed reports that show children with autism can, for some reason, find it more difficult than many people to release toxins from their bodies, and those toxins includealuminium.
I have witnessedfirst handthe positive effects of this water on my son, which I firmly believe, based on the evidence, can be attributed to the release of toxic aluminium from his body. Are you seriously trying to say that I have somehow been hoodwinked into buying water because I am stupid, unobservant or desperate to find a “cure” for my son’s autism? If so, I have to say that that is deeply offensive and insulting.
Parents of individuals with a diagnosis of autism are not mindless, ignorant or irrational. They are, in many cases some of the most well-read and expert critical thinkers you will find anywhere because they have to be. No one else will do the work that their individual child needs to be done.
Criticisinga company such as the providers of Acilis water in the way that you have, that give a reliable service at a reasonable cost to parents who appreciate the benefit of that product, is not helpful to anybody. Whilst I understand that you want to write a story that is eye-catching, which feeds the need to find scandal in our midst and to gives a voice to an apparently needy “good cause”, wouldn’t it be better to do some proper investigative journalism? Maybe ask a few questions that aren’t biased in favour of the conclusion you have already decided you will write? Even perhaps read some of the science?
Thank you for the time and attention I hope you have given to my comments.
We asked Rex Garratt, the UK distributer of Acilis, for his opinion and he told us that:
“Ms. Dalmayne has been leaving damaging posts all over the Internet.”
He asked us to view one of her posts on Twitter @AIMautisic. Her post stated:
“Outraged Emma Dalmayne, who runs the Autistic Inclusive Meets support group, said: “The idea that water can cure autism is ludicrous. I’ve done lots of research into the science surrounding autism.”
It appears that Ms. Dalmayne has delusions of grandeur because our research determines that she will be interviewed by anyone who is willing to listen.
Dalmayne Willing to be Interviewed by Anyone Who Will Listen
In 2016, Dalmayne was interviewed by The Guardian, this time to destroy the work of Ms. Kerri Rivera.
Ms. Rivera is a dedicated professional who has been helping in the recovery of autistic children for many years, using the CD protocol (MMS).
On her website titled Kerri Rivera – Real Solutions, she wrote:
“Hello, I’m Kerri Rivera. Welcome to my site. I have spent over a decade seeking ways to support the natural healing processes of the body. As such, it has become increasingly apparent that nutrition and proper support will unlock the body’s own healing power. With this in mind, I have embarked on a quest to archive all of my findings and make them available to the public free of charge. This is an informational site only and is not meant to treat, diagnose, or cure any disease or condition. Knowledge is power and it is my goal to empower people to make informed decisions in conjunction with their health care practitioner.

Like the website for Acilis, she has received positive reviews from grateful parents for her work on a regular basis.
Testimonial # 1
“Good morning Kerri,
Just wanted to say Thank YOU! again and give you an update for my son Luke who has type 1 diabetes.
The black seed oil has tremendously helped with his absent seizures.
Sometimes he would have around 8 or 9 in a 5 minute period which would last around 10 seconds each and has been very embarrassing for him in school and 7th grade basketball.
Last week he went 3 days with NONE!
Next I want to get him on your NEW protocol that I watched on Autism One ASAP and start the New Year right.
Thanks again very much!”
Testimonial # 2
Hope you are well, just want to say thank you so much for your assistant and guidance, David is happier and so are we. Good news! David is doing excellently, responding well to the protocol. We have just completed another 3 sets of PP, I will do the Atec and send to you.
He started school again and doing excellently (thank God!) teachers are making positive comments all the time……. .. I am excited and thankful to God. David is beginning to show more interest in learning new words and verbalising them, so I am teaching him
Although, still some night wakings and then he goes back to sleep after some time and also some salivation (no more spitting aggressively just salivation) but I believe all these too will stop and David will be totally restored. We haven’t started using the robynzyme yet just been doing PP, cd and enema, is it ok to start robynzyme now?
We were sent to a dietician ( a good one) due to his previous weight issues…..she is so happy with the diet we are on with him and encouraged us to continue, Kerri he has gained 4kg…I am so grateful, he is eating better but can get better. (I want him to eat more ) Please let me know what the next stages will be or if we just continue with PP, (we are on 1 week break at the moment until the next new moon date) although still going on with CD and enema.
Thanks again Kerri, I keep praying for you that God will continue to send help to you as you are helping others tirelessly. Looking forward to sharing more good news with you soon and seeing all our children succeed as its Gods original plan.
With Love Mom to David”
Testimonial # 3
Hope you’re well.
Just a quick note to let you know Max’s atec has dropped to 37 – was 57 beginning of July.
So so happy and thank you!!!”
These and many more positive comments can be found on Ms. Rivera’s Facebook page. However, these mothers’ testimonials appear to mean nothing to Ms. Dalmayne, who can be found discrediting Ms. Rivera’s work in news report after news report.
If all of this is not bad enough, in a BBC news report, Ms. Dalmayne can yet again be found attacking homeopaths who claim that CEASE therapy can help to reverse the symptoms of autism.
The Liberty Beacon have no idea whether or not Acilis silicon-rich mineral water, the CD Protocol or CEASE, can reverse the symptoms of autism. However, we do believe that parents know their children far better than anyone else. If they believe that their children’s symptoms are improving after using any one of these three protocols then…
… who the hell does Emma Dalmayne think she is to tell them otherwise?
