Advice To Parents Who Are Making Their Children Drink Bleach To Cure Autism

Autism effects 1 in 68 children and there currently is no cure.

Here is something I never thought I’d have to write, but here it goes:


Are we all in agreement? 

Apparently not, because there is a secret Facebook group dedicated to “cleansing the parasites that cause autism in children by using dangerous chemicals.”

“MMS,” the Miracle Mineral Solution is being touted as a cure for autism, the neurological disease that … doesn't have a cure. It consists of the chemical Chlorine Dioxide which is often used as a bleaching agent at paper mills and is similar to everyday household cleaners sitting in your cupboard.

If you’re curious what kind of damage ingesting these types of chemicals can do, I have, unfortunately, first hand knowledge.

My uncle who suffered with severe depression drank bleach and burned from the inside out until he was no longer able to breathe and passed away.

When I hear that across the pond, over in the UK, drug addicts and cult members are using bleach enemas and even liquid drops to cure autism, my stomach boils with disgust and fear for these children. 

Desperate parents wanting to “fix” their child are being "sold" a dangerous lie.

An investigation in 2016 by ABC News found that it’s happening here in America, too! The heinous “cure” is being promoted by a church leader and former Scientologist, Jim Humble.

According to his site

“The man behind the miracle mineral supplement is Jim Humble - the man who discovered this potent pathogen killer & brought it into the world. Whilst prospecting for minerals deep in the jungles of South America with his prospecting team, one of his colleagues was infected with the one of the MOST deadly forms of Malaria - the variety that kills within hours if no medical intervention is possible.

Even though help had been called in, it was going to be too late by the time of arrival - so in a last ditched attempt to bring about some relief was for Jim to treat the individual with some of his own water purification drops (a weak solution of sodium chlorite solution) that Jim had been using for years whilst on expedition to make questionable water potable. To everyone's amazement, the stricken man was sitting about laughing about the deadly experience just hours before!

Upon returning to the States, Jim was determined to get to the bottom of this mystery - resulting in the fine tuning of the MMS solution over the next several years. When Jim was confident that he had finally cracked the best possible formulation, he went abroad to Africa in order to test his findings against the Malaria parasite - with there being no better place to do this than in Africa!”

He believes he was brought to Earth from another galaxy, so he must know what he's doing.

As caretakers, we are our children’s only advocates. They trust us to do right by them and here we are, basically handing them a cup of death.

I'm the mother of an autistic child. There is nothing in this world I want more than for him to succeed and live a happy life. But I won't be fooled into wayward practices.

I've had people tell me that essential oils will cure him. No, wait! A chiropractic session will do the trick. Forget that, you need him to start taking apple cider vinegar twice a day.

Please, for the love of everything that's holy, STOP!

By going with these unscientifically backed procedures, just to make your child "normal," you are essentially telling them they are broken. Take a step back, put the bleach back in the closet, and go hug your child.

I can guarantee that hug will do 100% more for your loved one than any new and improved "cure."
