A Starting Point…
By Kent Heckenlively, JD
“Note from Tim Bolen – Autism (Severe Vaccine Damage) is the elephant in the room no one in authority wants to talk about. Why? It is too horrible to contemplate – especially to admit that vaccines did this, so, as Kent, and millions of parents, and grand-parents, have found out, there is NO OFFICIAL EFFORT, WHAT-SO-EVER, to cure, mitigate, repair, or even ACKNOWLEDGE that there are ways to turn vaccine-damage around…”
As of this writing there are a little more than eight hundred signatures on my White House petition regarding Suramin and autism.
I’m genuinely please by these numbers, although I know we still have a little more than 99,000 signatures to go.
As English Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said, “First you have to win the argument. Then you win the vote.”
As many of you are probably aware from my previous articles, Suramin was developed more than a hundred years ago to treat African Sleeping Sickness, a disease caused by a parasite. Unknown at the time was exactly how this parasite caused the disease.
I have an idea.
Normally, a properly functioning body would rid itself of a parasite. Therefore, a parasite would probably need to disable the body in some fashion, but not in a manner so severe as to cause the death of the host organism.
That’s where Dr. Robert Naviaux of the University of California, San Diego and his CELL DANGER THEORY comes in. Now, the cell danger theory did not originate with Dr. Naviaux. It has been around for quite some time. Dr. Naviaux’s creative insight was to see if it could be applied to conditions like autism or chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), or many of the other chronic diseases which are on the rise in our society.
The cell danger theory holds that when the cells detect a potentially dangerous threat (a chemical, virus, or other micro-organism), they respond by shutting down communication with other cells. It is possible for this signal to get “stuck,” creating a chronic health condition.
Please feel free to insert your own explanation as to what danger might cause the cells of a person to feel that there was an imminent danger in the neighborhood and they all had to go quiet like a baby deer in the forest. Your answer is just as likely to be right as mine. But that’s not what we’re talking about. We just want the cells to start TALKING TO EACH OTHER again.
Suramin tells the cells it’s safe to start communicating with each other again.
Naviaux was able to find evidence of this abnormal cellular communication by optimizing his mass spectrometer to find a unique pattern of metabolites (cellular signaling molecules) which were disrupted in autism and in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
In three different animal studies, he was able to use Suramin (antipurinergic therapy) to restore cellular communication.
These groups consisted of mice who’d had autism induced through maternal immune activation (Antipurinergic Therapy Corrects the Autism-Like Features in the Poly (IC) Mouse Model, PLoSOne, 2014), mice who had autism induced through maternal immune activation and were the HUMAN AGE EQUIVALENT OF 30 YEARS OLD (Reversal of Autism-Like Behaviors and Metabolism in Adult Mice with Single-Dose Antipurinergic Therapy, Translational Psychiatry, 2014), and mice with Fragile X Syndrome (Antipurinergic Therapy Corrects the Autism-Like Features in the Fragile X (Fmr1 knockout) Mouse Model, Molecular Autism, 2015).
Then Naviaux moved onto human beings and got a similar result. (Low-Dose Suramin in Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Small Phase I/II Randomized Clinical Trial, Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology, 2017)
Now to handle the objections.
Some have read that there can be toxicity with Suramin. At high doses that is true. These are low doses. Here are the facts.
The patients in the Naviaux study attained Suramin blood levels of 5-15 um. Typical treatment levels used safely for more than 100 years is 50-100 um in the blood for a period of 103 months. The high doses used by researchers in cancer chemotherapy in the 1980s created blood levels of 150-270 um for a period of 3-6 months.
While I understand that we cannot know everything, the information we have from more than a hundred years of use says THERE IS NO REASON SURAMIN AT THE LEVELS SUGGESTED WOULD CAUSE TOXICITY.
I have read complaints from some that this may be a pharma plan to make money. Well, the fact is that Suramin is now off-patent and is so cheap that the companies are essentially giving it away in those areas of the world where African Sleeping Sickness now persists. This medication could be compounded very cheaply.
Another objection I have heard is that we are overloaded with drugs. I agree. But a critical logical mistake is made when you see everything through a certain lens.
THIS IS NOT A HIGH DOSE, LONG-TERM MEDICATION DESIGNED TO SIMPLY KILL SOMETHING OR MASK SYMPTOMS.
This approach seems to restore balance to the body. Naviaux believes it is likely that in younger children with autism a practitioner would only need to infuse the medication once every six to eight weeks for a period of a year, and for older children the treatment would probably need to only last for a year.
You should think of this like a cast which allows a bone to properly heal.
I know that some of you believe the autism epidemic will never end unless we deal with the question of vaccines. I agree 100%.
This petition is designed to rescue the more than 1 million children in the United States with autism and their families. I hope that is something everybody can support. I ask you again to sign this petition and give hope to these families.
I ask three things in the petition. First, that the White House meet with Naviaux and he develops a protocol, secondly that the U.S. government allow Suramin to be used for this purpose, and third, that the government fund and monitor the safety of the treatment.
I ask this on behalf of the millions of families who want to come out from the darkness of this epidemic.
We must work together.
And for those who also want to take on the current barbaric vaccine schedule, I have a plan for that as well. Just wait. Launch date for that initiative is July 4, 2017, Independence Day.
We all get there together or we don’t get there at all.
