ADHD / Aspberger’s / Autism
One child in 5 we are told suffer from some form of “learning difficulties”.
This broad term seems to range over the whole spectrum from inability to concentrate,
dyslexia, hyperactivity to frank autism.
Many hundreds of these children have been brought to Foresight for hair testing and
programmes over the years, and, as you would expect they all exhibit a lack of Zinc and Manganese.
It has been known for many years that lack of Zinc inhibits the development of instinctive
mental progress. Many small animals have been subjected to studies which have shown how Zinc
deficient young fail to suck well, to cut teeth when expected, to leave the nest and find food
for themselves and so on. In other words, they do not mature normally, which means the brains
are not progressing as would be expected for animals of that age.
Rat development is quite age-specific, and instinctive and they normally cut teeth, start eating
solid food, leave the nest, forage etc. to quite a specific timetable.
A number of studies on Zinc and development by Oberleas and Caldwell, Pfeiffer, Vallee,
Crawford and Connor, Underwood, Williams, Sandstead, Passwater and Cranton, can be found
on this website by going to Research references.
Manganese deficiency is somewhat the same story. Manganese is the only nutrient that
carries oxygen to the mitochondria of the brain cell. Without the oxygen the cell does
not function properly. In order for the Manganese in the diet to cross over from the
inside of the intestine to the blood on the outside, it has to be passed across the
gut/blood barrier. This is a rather major exercise which requires enzymes which
Most unfortunately since the 1960’s there has been a huge increase in the use of pesticides.
First the lethal DDT, traces of which are still found in the environment despite it being
banned many years ago. Second came the organochlorines, which were also found to be both
damaging and persistent, and then – now – the organophosphates (OPs). The way these kill
the insects is by interfering with the central nervous systems.
The OPs destroy a very useful substance call cholinesterase
(Scientists talk about anti-cholinesterase activity). Cholinesterase acts as a sort
of sanitary engineer in the cell, removing the waste products produced by activity of
the choline-containing enzymes.
This means in simple terms without the cholinesterase doing it’s stuff, the enzymes cannot “work”.
Hence Manganese in the gut tends to get passed on down the line and out of the body. NOT very
helpful to the poor brain cells who are waiting for their oxygen supplies to be delivered in the
blood by carrier Manganese.
Very UNHELPFUL to normal development, and likely to be a major factor in not merely “learning difficulties”
but ultimately in Parkinson’s, Motor Neuron Disease, Alzheimer’s and so on.
As far as the children are concerned, both Zinc and Manganese deficiency are also major causes of child ill
health and “difficult behaviour”. There is a lot of what I would call “sub-clinical” autism about.
This ranges from “fussy babies” – babies who have discomfort with feeding, responding emotionally, probably
some eczema and so on. This will progress to tantrum prone toddlers, weepy irresponsible pre-schoolers to an
unpropitious school career. I believe this all lies behind a lot of drug taking, alcoholism, gang warfare,
knife crime, and criminality generally.
Some years ago I was sent hair samples of 18 juvenile “offenders”. 14 were disastrously low in Manganese,
8 were disastrously low in Zinc. Other problems were scattered throughout, but these stood out. Sadly,
(maddeningly) I was not allowed to follow through and help them.
So, let’s tackle it before it starts.
Before conception let’s get things right for Our Hero, so life is a bit brighter for him.
On the Foresight programme we tackle Zinc deficiency by testing and supplementing as necessary. Both parents.
Mothers will be Zinc deficient if they: have been on the pill (removes Zinc), or fertility drugs; where tap
water is loaded with excess copper; who have undergone miscarriage, surgery or illness, whose diet has been
less than ideal or not organic, who have been smoking or drinking, who have had allergies or parasites, used
permanent hair dyes, or aluminium containing deodorants … the list goes on. (See what I mean?)
However, just study the full Foresight programme and set to work on it. We will need to get your Zinc up,
to give Our Hero a flying start.
Likewise for Manganese! You need to eat organic, clear all the toxic metals, see the carpets and furnishings
and bedding does not contain “moth-proofing” or “flame-retardant” which are usually OPs. M.K. Johnson of the
MRC says that Nicotinamide is the only substance that will take OPs out through the liver.
(See research by M.K. Johnson, Passwater and Cranton, Pfeiffer,
Saner, Riopelle and Hubbard and Underwood). Avoid food additives and vaccinations – two potent Zinc removers.
In order not to leave a huge and visible scar I had my baby daughter vaccinated on the sole of her heel – at
four months old. She had a very bad reaction. At eight months old she started to show some paralysis.
To cut a long story short, she had developed a tumour on the spinal cord, in the small of the back.
With much help from Great Ormond Street Hospital, and a convent of nuns praying for her – also water
from Lourdes – all was thankfully resolved.
However, more recently learning a little about reflexology, I have learned that the site of the tumour was
a position connected to the sole of the heel, in reflexology terms. I was not looking for this information,
but it came to me by chance. It is “anecdotal” once again, but it begs the question, is childhood cancer
connected to vaccination? As it is rising so rapidly that hospices are being opened for small children,
I think it is time the question was asked.
I am not aware of evidence, anecdotal or otherwise, that links electromagnetic pollution with any aspect of
ADHD or autism. Indeed there was dyslexia and hyperactivity in children born from the early fifties onwards,
presumably largely linked to copper water pipes, Zinc deficiency, pesticides, etc. and the DPT injection at
The electromagnetic hazard was comparatively modest at that time, before mobile phones, masts etc. etc.
In recent years however it became obvious the problem is out of control. It is known that the masts and
other forms of pollution can keep people awake at night and this has been linked to suicides.
Whether this has any direct bearing on autism is not 100% clear, but it is unlikely to be helpful.
Regarding vaccinations if you feel you must vaccinate, then be absolutely sure the baby is well
stocked up with Zinc and Manganese before you do this.
I am sure the reason that vaccination is so deadly to brain-cells is that the child is already
in a beleaguered state due to all of the above. When Zinc and Manganese are already very low,
with little in reserve, then it is small wonder that it is horrendous to assail the bloodstream with:
- Bugs (they are said to be attenuated – i.e. programmed to die quickly, but can we be sure?)
Wakefield and O’Leary have found measles bugs alive in the child’s gut after quite some time, we gather.
They may mutate (change in character) but they do not necessarily always die. We gather they can cause
a lot of havoc in the gut when this happens, resulting in malabsorption etc).
- Animal lymph, usually from aborted calves. It is unlikely to be a good idea to introduce
this into the bloodstream of tiny human children. In a number of instances it has been reported
that transplant patients find they take on some of the characteristics of the organ donor.
Sometimes this is a happy situation, more often it is very disturbing. This is reported
by adult patients who know themselves very well. How bewildering could something like
this be for a two year old?
- This lymph may carry with it traces of antibiotics which are used (unwisely?) in cattle.
I did not have my own youngest child vaccinated at all until he was five years old, as reactions
had been so bad in my older children. However, his smallpox one then had to be done in order to
be able to take him abroad. He came up in huge blisters all over the arm and neck, which were
pus-filled and agonizing. Our doctor, who was excellent, came round and was so shocked he said
he would never use animal lymph for floating vaccines again and would only ever use distilled water.
He was sure it was a reaction to the antibiotics in the lymph. I emphasise that this is only
“anecdotal” and not “scientific” but if you had been through it with your child you would never forget it.
- Thymerasol. The mercury preservative. We are told they are no longer putting this in.
I am still not sure if they are still using up the stocks that contain it? (Or if not, how
they are disposing of it all? Not into the river/ground water, I trust?) I find it staggering
that it was ever put in, in the first place, to something that was to be injected into babies.
If you are having your child vaccinated I would first spend a day with a family with an autistic
child, to see if you feel you would be able to cope if this happened to yours.
I would ask everyone who tries to coerce you into this course of action if their own children
have been done. If they decline to tell you, “as it is their business” you will know why.
If you are going to decide logically, I would read both “The Vaccination Bible” by Lynne McTaggart,
and “Behavioural Problems in Childhood – the Links to Vaccination” by Dr. Viera Schriebner.
I would also take “The Informed Parent”. For other books see book list (See page on Vaccination).
If you decide to do it, ask for it to be floated in distilled water and give the diseases one at a
time, with as long a gap as possible in between.
Dr. Schriebner has linked vaccination very convincingly with cot death, and also with allergic
illnesses which include asthma. There are 2,000 deaths a year from asthma, and 330-400 a year from
cot death. To risk a minimum of 2,300 deaths a year, to combat about half a dozen deaths from
measles does not seem a sensible decision on the part of “the authorities”. When you add to
this the possibility of a further 2,000 children being “lost” to autism, it is 4,300 odd
tragedies a year.
There are also a minimum of 100,000 more suffering from hyperactivity or dyslexia, so
now we begin to get things into proportion.
My dentist, who is a highly intelligent woman, and who has studied mercury toxicity,
is very interested in the Thymerasol issue.
She believes that the vaccine preparations are made up in phials of 5 doses. As mercury
is a heavy substance it will drop to the bottom of the phial. Therefore child number
five may be the unlucky one. She believes this is why one child in five has “learning difficulties”.
As any heavy metal such as mercury will use up minerals such as Zinc to drive it out of the body,
I think there is probably a lot in what she says. This is another factor in the equation.
It deserves more research. Again it is “anecdotal” but all “hypotheses” start off as anecdotes!
I don’t believe that any of the ADHD/ autism spectrum need be happening.
I have not heard of one Foresight child in 30 years suffering from this.
We do get parents coming to us suffering dyslexia etc., also a lot of allergies.
These we can mainly clear, or at least identify, and they can cope much better.
I have hair sent to me from lots of small children suffering from hyperactivity etc.
Afterwards we have lots of letters from mothers saying, “It’s like a miracle, he’s a
different child…..” He is the child he was always meant to be.
We have to solve it all ourselves – us parents. As I write this in May 2009 the only
response from Government is to ban SIX additives out of FIFTY FOUR that produced hyperactivity –
SIX down, FORTY EIGHT to go. And so on, and on…..
So we must do what we can. Prepare a level playing field for the next baby. Do whatever we
can for those who already have problems. Things can improve enormously for everybody if you do!
