Ocean water, full moons, and vortexes: oh my! These are a few of the things you’ll hear about on this episode of Bulletproof Radio. Is autism curable? Most experts would agree: it’s not. Though Kerri Rivera thinks otherwise and comes on the show to discuss her Chlorine Dioxide protocol and why she believes it has the power to heal the symptoms known as autism. It’s a controversial method to say the least, but according to Kerri, 110 children have been cured using her CD Autism protocol. Please listen and enjoy!

Director and Founder of Autismo2 – Hyperbaric Clinic, first and only Biomed-based Autism Clinic in Latin America, Kerri Rivera is the mother of two sons; 11-year old Patrick is in recovery from ASD. Responsible for translating the ARI’s Biomedical Protocol to Spanish, she is a part of “Curando el Autismo” and “Fundacion Venciendo el Autismo” (Puerto Rico and Venezuela); Mexican liaison for AutismOne and ARI, Rescue Angel, bilingual mentor for TACA, and member of the Global Autism Alliance.

  • Jeff Sha Robes

    Any suggestions for sources to purchase CD and ocean water? Is ocean water much different than Himalayan salt and water? Is it a proportion thing?

    • Go Quietly

      do a google search for chlorine dioxide MMS supplier; also ‘rene quinton seawater’. the seawater is a lot more expensive than Himalayan salt, but you would only use a small amount at a time and would still continue your use of the Himalayan salt. There is a Humble_MMS yahoo group that is helpful with this. changes may have been made in making it so the taste is a bit better than it was years ago.

      • stacy

        Is the an alternative to ocean water, like himalayan salt water, concentrace drops, iv mineral therapy?

    • GTR

      One of the companies Dave mentioned without giving a name was Ocean Grown or Ocean Solution – they do an ocean-mineral based fertilizer. So you can have your own alfalfa, cardamine, or whatever sprouts in your home on it and get the minerals you desire, without drinking too much salt. Their site mentions the fertilizer contains all ocean elements including nice ones like Plutonium or Uranium :-)

      http://www.ocean-grown.com/elements.html

      Unfortunately the fertilizer is expansive.

  • betsy

    I tried MMS/chlorine dioxide a few years ago. The community and forums are really nice and very helpful. I didn’t notice much of a change in my health issues (auto immune) and the chlorine dioxide kinda freaked me out when I was taking it mostly due to the taste. I don’t have autism and I do believe it works really well for some folks and maybe not for others. However, after hearing this I might experiment with it again to see if I notice anything different this time .

    • Abe Blue

      You mean you didn’t die or bleach out your innards?

    • Shanni

      Betsy, Kerri’s CD protocol is not the MMS protocol of a few years ago. The amount of cd consumed is low and dilute. My son and I tolerate it easily, (even the taste). One bit of advice is to do the entire protocol as indicated by Kerri Rivera, which will provide a much better gauge of whether it will work for your autoimmune condition. Best wishes.

  • Ghost

    She’s a homeopath? Sorry but everything about this screams quackery

    • Abe Blue

      Screams quackery? Well to me the wind cries mary.

    • Stanislaus

      Haha.your names apropiate,sent when you get cancer you will die w that idiot belief. she is getting MEDICAL results.

  • Si-boss

    Speaking of mercury, a good guest would be Chris Shade of Quicksilver scientific, he specialises in mercury detox and comes accross as legit.

    • Kelly

      “Comes across as legit” says it all. He’s very new to mercury detox, and pushes his own products that have undergone no testing. I’d go with someone more experienced, like Andrew Cutler PhD.

  • Sean

    Bought it. Over the last year, I’ve learned the HARD WAY that filtering my drinking water can be dangerous. Bacteria like to grow in water filters, and that bacteria likes to destroy my gut lining… Now I’m using KDF, UV, Ceramic, and NOT plain carbon filters that harvest bacteria… also I’m trying hydrogen peroxide… So I’m gonna try this chlorine dioxide stuff too:

    http://www.amazon.com/Water-Purification-Drops-Chlorine-Dioxide/dp/B00FRJ2KY8/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0989289001&linkCode=as2&tag=bulletpexecut-20

    …I didn’t buy the “stabilized” bottle of “Chlorine Dioxide Solution”… don’t know what sort of preservative it’s using to “stabilize” the stuff.

    • GTR

      My tap water is below the government limits in all contamintants… except chlorine, which is above the allowed norms. So in my case adding even more chlorine do the system is not a wise move. Carbon water filters are good at removing chlorine, they can also remove trihalomethanes (THMs) that are a gunk of organic stuff that reacted with chlorine, and are carcinogenic.

      Bacteria in carbon water filters shouldn’t be a problem, as you can always boil the water before drinking it, thus killing the bacteria. You can also replace filters more frequently than the manufacturer advises.

      Carbon water filters have do have a bad side – they filter out good minerals like magnesium or calcium out of water. So their best case usage is for coffee espresso machine where these minerals cause blockage of pipes. For other uses, like making an herbal tea, you are better off with mineral water from the store – but verify that it doesn’t have too much fluoride before buying; or a water from the spring.

      • Don_C

        One interesting thing about chlorine dioxide is that it does not create carcinogenic compounds like chlorine does. This is why it is used to treat municipal drinking water in many cities and is recommended by government agencies for this purpose. It doesn’t create chlorine-based compounds as it breaks down and eventually becomes NaCl (same as table salt). However, if exposed to sunlight ClO2 does dissociate into chlorine and oxygen, so it must be used in dark conditions for water treatment.

    The quality of your guests seem to decline somewhat, maybe you should try to release better podcasts on a less frequents basis. I have only have so much time to listen to podcasts, and I only know afterwards whether I wastd my tme or not.

    • betsy

      Your time isn’t our priority…. it’s yours. Meaning if you think a podcast is not worth your time be a big boy and and use your finger to hit the delete button and stop listening.

      I like podcasts as often as possible and I am open to all info. I have been exposed to these protocols years prior so it isn’t that unbelievable to me but at first I was skeptical.

      • James D Miller

        The fact that the human body is mysterious to us in no way provides evidence for the possibility that mysterious sounding techniques involving full moons and vortexes are likely to work.

        • Nikolai

          …nor it disproves their feasibility

        • Ron

          I would suspect she was referring to a water purification process (vortex) and most people know the moon effects gravitational pull on the earth. If that glowing ball in the sky can move a damn ocean what makes you think it can effect a something inside of you? My brother is autistic and you can bet your behind I will be doing some surious research into this.

        • James D Miller

          Ron,
          The science of gravity is extremely well understood, and this understanding precludes the moon from having mystical powers that can help cure autism. Please look into neurofeedback and a paleo diet for your brother long before you investigate this kind of thing. If you do conduct serious research please start by looking into the long and sad history of medical quackery and the very real harm it has done to sick people. (Dave is certainly not a quack and I don’t know enough about the woman on this podcast to make a definitive judgement about her.)

        • xavier

          You are a serious dangerous idiot.I personally eradicated cancer in 4 people with chlorine dioxide. #1advanced acute leukemia in 88 year old lady.
          Stage 4
          #2colon cancer w diverticuli stage 3,100% remission in 4 months all conditions.
          #3 acute advanced stage 4 prostate cancer w 2 months to live,skeletal weight loss,10 months 100% remission.
          #4 double mastectomy and chemo for stage 2 breast cancer,one year later cancer returned, stage 2/3,chlorine dioxide and hypochlorous acid,and clorella and whole leaf aloe vera powder in a capsule ( Russian system aloe vera drying) ALL DONE SEPERATLY = 100% remission in 2
          months. The science is real and valid.the cats out of the bag,and you are redundant and will be forgotten.people want to live.

        • timras

          Your answer shows how ignorant and brainwashed you. Are.gravity is not understood at all.those are theory and hypothisii,never proven.the most accurate is Teslas dynamic theory of gravity,which is classified.you are so dumbef down you IGNORED the fact that 150 children are no longer autistic.MEDICALLY VERIFIED.
          Why??
          WE know why….

        • rather

          They work.
          You don’t.
          BTW isn’t your time special?

        • Prudence Dagg

          The only connection to the full moon that I am aware of is parasites syncing their activity with the lunar cycle. You don’t have to believe that to use the protocol. Some people see dramatically increased issues related to the moon; others may not.

  • Melissa J L

    Our son is one child who has regained his health using Kerri’s protocol to treat what we think was likely parasitical vaccinosis.
    Eddie developed regressive autism at age 2 1/2. He lost his speech, eye contact, emerging social and motor skills…toileting skills even.
    He’s seven and he just started talking again in July, four months into CD treatment and right after his first big parasite purge!!
    Eddie’s out of pull-ups, speaking in sentences, sleeping through the night and his teachers plan to integrate him into a mainstream class after Christmas.
    We are rapt. We’re just two of many parents we know (in real life and online) who give thanks for Kerri Rivera and Andreas Kalcker every day for the improved or recovered health we’ve witnessed in our children this year.
    Nick and Melissa.

  • Guest

    It was interesting to hear from someone with such a radical view but I
    agree with Ghost, she does scream quackery. Your last few podcasts have
    been so good, this one came out of left field. But thanks for showing
    me an interesting viewpoint, Dave, even if I don’t believe some of it.

  • Sassy Millar

    What causes autism is really a mystery. I really think the reasons lie around in the child’s own house. Read this: http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/brain-function-articles/the-top-10-autism-causing-chemicals-in-your-home

  • http://contrast2.wordpress.com Brandon Adams

    A couple of questions:

    1) Kerri’s website alludes everywhere to the protocol, but I cannot find the actual protocol anywhere

    2) Her website says “ClO2 is a gas that is produced as a result of combining 2 liquids, Sodium Chlorite (NaClO2) and citric acid.” Where can we find CIO2 and where can we find CIO2 that is not made using fermented corn?

    • Don_C

      Many now use hydrochloric acid (HCl) instead of citric acid to get chlorine dioxide out of sodium chlorite. Then no need to be concerned about fermented corn. Kerri Rivera’s book with her protocol came out this May and the 2nd Edition is due out this month (Dec. 2013). Many, including my 17-year-old step-son are recovering from autism this way, based on the validity of the ATEC as a means of evaluating treatment efficacy. The oldest I have read about who is recovering through Kerri’s protocols is a man aged 32 in Hungary. At last count, there were 111 autistic people whose ATEC scores have recovered to 10 or below using her protocols in the last 3 years.

    • Amii

      Kerri’s book has the whole protocol. You can ClO2 at wps4sale.com

  • bjjcaveman

    Did you guys ever discuss what that ‘vortex’ thinga ma jig was after talking about the ‘full moon’?

  • Kelly

    Oh.My.God. As ‘out there’ as her talk was (and damn, she likes to talk), when she mentioned Dr. Klinghardt, any legitimacy she had went right out the window. If you think Ms. Rivera is out there, schedule an appointment with Klinghardt. You’ll get his specialized “ART testing”, along with a wheelbarrow full of his overpriced supplements, along with his recommendation of “ballroom dancing” to treat Lyme…

    • Lynlea

      Spreading nastiness AGAIN Danny? Maybe take a long, careful look at yourself.

      • Bex

        Yup.

      • Kelly

        Who’s “Danny”? And who’s spreading “nastiness”? All I’m doing is telling the truth about my experience and stating facts from his website. I’m sorry if that makes you uncomfortable.

        Shame on you.

        • Lynlea

          Read your original comment again. Go on. Nasty much?
          Just my two cents.

          Kerri Rivera’s legitimacy goes “out the window” because she talks a lot (LOL), and she appreciates Dr Klinghardt’s view.
          Did she mention ART? No. Did she endorse it? No.
          Does she recommend wheelbarrows of expensive supplements? No!
          Is she helping autistic kids? Yes!

          Actually, shame on YOU “Kelly” (wink nudge), for bringing your bitter, twisted view to try and discredit good work by a good person.
          I’m sorry for your bad experience and that you didn’t see fit to terminate the relationship before 2 1/2 years, but seriously don’t you think that might just mean you’re not the best “go to guy” for advice on who’s a great practitioner.

          Legitimacy out the window. Yes, yours.

        • Kelly

          Perhaps she didn’t mention ART specifically or “endorse” it, but it was my impression “LynLea” (wink, nudge), that if she knew of him, she is probably familiar with his work, at the very least when it comes to heavy metals and detoxification.

          Perhaps I shouldn’t have said “any legitimacy” and instead used “some of her legitimacy” went out the window. I’m not outright dismissing her protocol and certainly not the patients she may have helped, I’m dismissing the testing methods and what I assumed was her endorsement of Klinghardt, who, according to Andy Cutler, has used very damaging protocols in the past to remove mercury. I’m guessing those protocols were tested on each patient using ART, but maybe not…I wasn’t there.

          FYI: Here’s a link to Cutler’s quote:

          http://onibasu.com/archives/am/2658.html

          And again, I’m not sure where you’re coming from with this “bitter, twisted” stuff. It’s your posts that come off as very angry and bitter. I’m sorry I didn’t have the 20/20 hindsight or foresight that you expect seriously ill people to have, so that you feel the need to chide them for something they can’t do anything about now. Calling a severely disabled person “twisted” or “bitter” is not exactly kind or compassionate.

          Perhaps a little self-reflection might be a good idea.

        • Kelly

          Interesting too how you’re going after me and my comments, but none of the other negative comments below. Hmmm…

        • Shanni

          I believe Kerri Rivera mentioned Dr.Klinghardt because he is addressing patients’ parasite load. I don’t recall her endorsement of his entire practice or testing methods.

        • Lynlea

          Exactly.
          Danny has an axe to grind. Or maybe his parasites do ??????

        • Kelly

          In fact, he doesn’t use any of her protocol as well, at least according to Pam, one of the MMS “ministers”.

        • Shanni

          Having been on Kerri Rivera’s chlorine dioxide protocol, (not to be confused with any other MMS protocol), for the past 4 months, I definitely sleep better, have no more difficulties with yeast infections, have more energy, and am regularly passing parasites. My son, however, who is diagnosed with moderate autism, has been passing many, many more parasites than I have. Furthermore, he is sleeping well, waking up refreshed, saying many novel words, is less aggressive, and more socially interested. This after years of very little progress. Really, arguing about this protocol, (bleach, etc.) when you have little or no knowledge of it holds little weight. Chlorine dioxide is used as an oxidizer to battle, pathogens such as bacteria, yeast, parasites and viruses. Try it! Or, would you rather dismiss it without really understanding its use?

        • Kelly

          I just might do that Shanni. Thanks for your kind reply. Nice to hear from someone who can reply with kindness rather than snarky spitefulness…

          I appreciate it.

        • Lynlea

          Expecting kind replies when your first post regarding this podcast was:
          “Oh.My.God. As ‘out there’ as her talk was (and damn, she likes to talk), when she mentioned Dr. Klinghardt, any legitimacy she had went right out the window. If you think Ms. Rivera is out there, schedule an appointment with Klinghardt. You’ll get his specialized “ART testing”, along with a wheelbarrow full of his overpriced supplements, along with his recommendation of “ballroom dancing” to treat Lyme…”

          You’ve got some nerve!

        • Kelly

          And with all due respect, you’ve got a lot of anger “LynLea”. At least I’m trying to change my perspective and outlook, and have explained my position in subsequent posts.

          I’m sure this must be teaming with them.

        • corleone

          Art works how stupid are you people.u can’t deny successful results and klinghart hold the top spot for cures.these trolls aren’t very good.ignore them,their evil will rot them from the inside because they want to hurt children and this will sicken them eventually killing them e cancer and tell be gone.
          Its karma.

        • Guest

          O-kay. I’m curious.
          ….You mentioned you’re just telling the truth about YOUR experience back there. Break it down for me. So you scheduled an appointment with Dr. Klinghardt? He gave you his specialized ART testing and a lot (a very great lot) of ‘overpriced’ supplements. And he also recommended ballroom dancing for your Lyme disease?
          Just needing clarification on a few points here. I was considering a consult and it’s a wonderful bonus to stumble across an actual patient, even if you don’t sound terribly happy. It helps add to a balanced decision making process. Thank you !!!

        • corleone

          U r a P.O.S
          Shame on you

    • Kenny

      Sorry, just stumbled by and saw your comment. I’m in the greater Seattle area, and saw one of his close associates who used to have her practice in Bellevue, but is now located in Edmonds.
      d.
      PS Have you considered taking up ballroom dancing? You might get really good at it – good enough to use it to fundraise for a worthy cause !!!

      • Kelly

        If I weren’t so disabled, due in large part to the fake ‘testing’ they do (and yes, I saw the same doctor you did, for about 2 1/2 years), I might be able to dance. Derksen is all charm, but thanks to her association with Klinghardt, misguided, to put it lightly. After my first appointment I was able to walk about 2 miles a day. 2 1/2 years later I could hardly walk 3 blocks.

        • Kelly

          In hindsight, I was desperate, but gullible and too trusting. I hope others might see this and not make the mistake I did.

        • Kenny

          Sorry to hear about the disability “due in large part to fake testing”. I can understand why you don’t like Dr Klinghardt, his associates or people who endorse his work or products, and why you work so aggressively to educate.

          That really is a bad outcome, only being able to walk 3 blocks. :-(
          I do hope you’re not holding onto any anger or regrets.

        • Kelly

          Thanks Kenny. I’m working as hard as I can on letting it go, and not letting comments like “LynLea’s” get to me. Anger gets in the way of healing, and I need to heal.

          And BTW, I like Dr. Derksen. She’s very nice, and compassionate. I just think that she was misguided using K’s testing methods. The things missed by that ‘testing’ were very numerous (compared to later blood tests). I have since heard that she changed some of her tests and thus, recommendations, after other patients had negative reactions. I went to her on the recommendation of a friend who had recovered and recommended her highly, so maybe that’s why I kept seeing her for longer than I should have.

          I wish her and her patients well.

    • gwynthfair

      Really? Ballroom dancing is not his recommended cure for Lyme disease. Exercise and physical activity, including ballroom dancing, tai chi, etc. are recommended AS A SMALL PART OF his protocol. Who could argue with that? Your comment was very misleading.

      • Kelly

        Where did I say it was a ‘cure’ for lyme? Your misinterpretation of my comment was very misleading.

        For those who want to check out his recommendations, here’s a link:

        Everyone’s free to make their own choices. Best of luck on your path… :)

    • NitaN

      This exact post was copied into a forum for discussion about attitudes that hinder progress.
      I’m curious as to what must be so wrong in your own life that you choose to bash someone who is putting herself out there with information she believes may be helping people.

      Should people stay quiet instead?

      • Kelly

        Hi Nita,

        Did you not read the follow-up posts? I realized that I was too harsh towards Ms. Rivera, and posted that above, while explaining my bad experience — becoming severely disabled (that’s the “wrong” part) — which I believe was a result of the “ART Testing” that Dr. Klinghardt developed and my (then) doctor utilized for all her diagnoses. I trusted this testing method, perhaps naively so, but I was desperate, and of course hindsight is always 20/20.

        I’m all for ‘progress’, but I also wanted to caution patients that may want to hear another side of the story. Obviously some people here don’t, and I perhaps worded my initial post awkwardly or unfairly, but I guess I could ask the same question that you did — Should people indeed stay quiet instead?

        Anyway, I hope I’ve cleared things up. Take care. I’m moving on.

    • bandini

      Hahaha.your a bad troll.
      Your fired!
      Klinghardts reputation is stellar even amongst world’s greatest scientists such as Lida mattman,Nobel prize winner.
      Crawl back in your hole troll as you suck as a troll.

    Thank you for going out there on the spectrum! So many people need to hear there is hope. I’m going to share this with everyone.

    Awesome podcast Dave. To all you shitty people, you can’t argue with
    results. If you want to complain about Dave or his guests and the FREE

    amazing info. Just leave.

    • Lynlea

      Agree results speak!
      As for shitty people, well you really do have to wonder if they are seeking recovery….or something else.

  • GTR

    A homeopath – what a shame :-( I understand Dave didn’t know about it until the show was on. Still I suggest, that as a balancing act, and in order not to become associated with the woo side of things Dave should ask a pro-science person for one of his next podcast. My suggestion could be a pro-vaccine person, eg: Abbie Smith from ERV blog:

    http://scienceblogs.com/erv/

    • Hambal

      Good grief! Not that trumped up potty-mouth grad student. If people want to hear the orthodox side of things they can get it from their gp. People tune into Dave’s podcast for new and innovative stuff, not the same old orthodox medical garbage. Kerri’s podcast was great! More of the same please Dave.

  • James D Miller

    I wish you asked about her failure rate. How many autistic children who have come to her has she not helped? And what percentage of healthy children have those things in their poop?

    I know a lot about autism. You should consider removing her podcast from your server.

    • Amii

      I don’t know of any child that has not been helped by this protocol. My child is one of the now 112 children that have been cured. Almost everyone in the world has parasites of one kind or another. Many parasites are microscopic so you won’t see them coming out in a child’s poop.

      • James D Miller

        I’m happy that your child has gotten better, but how can you be sure that it was the protocol that helped? Lots of autistic children see significant improvements as they grow up. Correlation doesn’t imply causation.

        One of the reasons I wish Dave asked her about her failure rate was because if she gave an answer of zero we could be almost certain that she shouldn’t be taken seriously.

        • Don_C

          One good way to know what is causing rapid recovery from autism is the sudden change after introducing Kerri’s protocol. As an example, my step-sons ATEC score improved from an 84 to a 53 in the six years prior to beginning to use chlorine dioxide and ocean water (31 point improvement). As you said, lots see improvements as they grow up.

          Using chlorine dioxide and ocean water his score improved from 53 to 19 after three months (34 points) and then to an ATEC score of 12 after 6 months (41 point ATEC improvement in 6 months). He is 17 years old. Most of the parents having success recovering autism this way have tried many other things and say nothing has worked as well, nor as quickly, nor as inexpensively as what Kerri Rivera teaches.

          I had never heard of any of this before May, 2013, so to see such a dramatic and documented improvement in autism symptoms in 6 months, at age 17, cannot be explained by growing up. There is even a 32 year old man in Hungary who is recovering, so there is no age barrier to success here.

          My step-son is just one of thousands all over the world who are seeing dramatic improvements in autism symptoms following Kerri’s protocols. Considering that Kerri only first tried this herself around 3 years ago, the success rate is amazing.

          I also do not know what the failure rate is, but since she has found a common cause for many autism symptoms that is treatable (parasites and microbes) and also has a way to deal with the cause and not just the symptoms, it is resulting in a lot of success for a lot of families.

          Just one more point: Dramatic symptom improvement for many at any age, even if it has not yet resulted in full recovery for all, is still an indication of success.

          “so to see such a dramatic and documented improvement in autism symptoms in 6 months, at age 17, cannot be explained by growing up.”

          Six months is a long time and there is such a huge variance in autistic brains that this by itself doesn’t constitute strong evidence that the protocol works. Still, I’m happy for you.

          The vast majority of the living things in the human body are parasites and microbes (as opposed to cells that have human DNA) and blaming them in general for autism is strange. And if it’s true why is autism so common among young mathematical prodigies?

        • Daniel Gabriel

          I suggest you try the protocol according to Kerri’s recommendations and document it extensively. That way once and for all you can disprove the protocol. Otherwise it seems a bit silly for you, with no evidence, to disprove (or bring into question) Kerri’s protocol, when she shows immense evidence proving the veracity of the system.

        • James D Miller

          What is her failure rate? If she hasn’t provided it (and for all I know she has) then she hasn’t provided “immense evidence”.

          You are suggesting I preform a sample size=1 experiment which can’t, by itself, prove or disprove a medical protocol regardless of how well documented.

        • erin

          Oh brother. I have been on the facebook group for 8 months now, and this protocol is like nothing I’ve ever seen. I have seen a mom report their 9 year old 100÷ nonverbal son say “mom” for the first time a week after starting the drops. And many many other stories like this. I check people’s profiles all the time. These are different people from each other, and there are so many of them. Anyone who assumes this “bleach” scare is legit without spending a week at least on the facebook group is doing their child a disservice. It won’t poison your kid to hang out on facebook. Check it out. I don’t care how much you know about autism, if you have a closed mind, you can never really know if what you “know” is correct or not. You always assume you are right. Just consider the possibility. Consider it. How many things have humans been positive about onky to find out they were incredibly wrong?

          6 months is a long time? Not in the context of a lifetime of suffering, buddy, not by a long shot.

          I think it’s the typical pro-medical, pro-Western-medicine perspective to think that if a drug doesn’t kick in within a few minutes, it’s not effective. But I’m more interested in holistic body healing. Sometimes that takes more time than masking symptoms, which could be done–somewhat–with powerful doses of psychiatric drugs for some.

    Thank you very much for useful information.

  • Howard Harkness

    The podcast was interesting, but I probably would have terminated the interview as soon as I heard the word “homeopath.” It is a fact that homeopathy was shown to be superior to “traditional” medicine (in some cases) several decades ago, but this is not really an indication that homeopathy is any good. It is more of an indication of just how truly awful traditional medicine was at the time (there are still some areas where mainstream medicine is pretty poor, but at least it seems to be able to handle things like broken bones and other acute injuries now). It’s also a testament to just how incredibly powerful the Placebo Effect is, as well as how effective the human body’s self-healing mechanisms can be.

    There may actually be some useful information in that interview, but “homeopathy” is a keyword that makes me carefully examine anything else a person says for evidence of Placebo Effect and confounders.

    While this CD protocol might actually have some success stories, I don’t think there is enough information available to pinpoint actual mechanisms or separate the mechanisms from confounders.

  • Amii

    Kerri is an angel! I cured my son’s autism in just over 1 month using her protocol. His starting ATEC was 36 and his ATEC dropped to a 6 after just over one month. The protocol also cured his asthma and spastic diplegia. If you have an autistic child or know one PLEASE look into Kerri’s protocol. Read the book, research it and look into the Facebook group and then make your decision. Don’t just write her off. I see kids getting better everyday. There is a cure!

    • Selma

        AutismCD is the name of the Facebook group. There is a link on this page listed under the Featured heading.

    Dave awesome as usual… WHY DO YOU NOT HAVE A SHARE BUTTON FOR TWITTER FACEBOOK ETC!!!! WE NEED TO SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE!

  • not buying it

    Too cool!!! i notice that nearly all of the supporters of Quack Kerri Rivera have only commented on this one post. Never on another thread. I wonder how many people she paid to comment.

    • Shanni

      I am using the protocol, and am commenting without payment of any type. I must say, in all the years I have been trying to treat the symptoms of my son’s autism, this is the only protocol that has had tremendous positive effects. Furthermore, it is extremely inexpensive.

    • erin

      Get this. I have been following kerri for 8 months… only doing the protocol for 2.5 months as my husband was freaked out by all the typical bleach talk for so long. After several months of observing miracles in pics, stories and videos on facebook, I gave it a go. We are still here. Nothing drastic for me. Have definitely seen lots of worms, but physically I feel about the same. My 3 yr old is doing faaaantastic. I saw improvement in her in just 1.5 weeks. Her horrendous diaper rash of 1.5 years cleared up. I dont even give her oral mms, just enemas, and she has become the happiest little girl. The rest of us…2 kids and dh…are about the same. If you want to see I am a real person check out my health crisis on gaps diet by campbell-mcbride review on amazon…jason erin gave it 3 stars. That’s me.

      Anyway, so I read about all sorts of different methods of healing. Always looking and reading and trying, I just barely found bulletproof..like 1 or 2 days ago. Thought I’d read around on the site and I find kerri rivera??? I was so surprised. I must have missed that if she mentioned it on facebook…don’t always check it regularly. Anyway, I happened here by chance. I wish someone would pay me something because I really want to buy a pemf machine. But, alas, no one is paying me.

  • duffney

    I appreciate the courage it took to talk about such controversial Topics why people take it upon themselves to bash others for going outside the norm is beyond me. I’m a little confused at why the below article was listed as a resource. . Mostly just bashes mms without valid data.
    The Curious Case of Autism and MMS (Huff Post article)

    • Guest

      Regarding the bashing. I’m speculating here but it seems people have agendas, or they’re hurting or frustrated in some way and bashing helps them to feel what? Powerful?
      Plenty here have dismissed because they don’t trust homeopathy. At least those people are upfront about what their problem is. Fair enough.
      Others are negative because they don’t trust unproven therapies with peer reviewed studies to support them. Just my two cents, but I think that’s okay too.
      There’s the curious case of Mr D….uplicity, or “Kelly” who says he’s not dismissing Kerri’s protocol outright, and on closer inspection seems to be bashing her for being herself – talking too much, and because she mentions a doctor…who trained a doctor he had a bad experience with a few years ago. What his intention is I’m not sure…to champion Andrew Cutler some more maybe? Quick search shows he’s been doing that a while, and running down Dr Klinghardt for years. I feel sorry for the guy. (Not Klinghardt.)
      I haven’t noticed anyone who has actually used the protocol, or met Kerri (a warm and generous woman) bash Dave’s podcast. Perhaps that’s because most of the people using the protocol are happily involved in a supportive community elsewhere? Lucky them!

  • Vox Veritas

    Kerri Rivera is a quack and a liar. She gives kids BLEACH to “cure” their autism. Sad to see this kind of BS being promoted on BPE. More info: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/todd-drezner/autism-cure_b_1588498.html

    • Abe Blue

      Not really a true statement on your part. 60% of the water companies in the USA
      are now using chlorine dioxide to purify drinking water. Chances are
      very high that if you believe that MMS (again, diluted Chlorine dioxide)
      is a bleach, then my friend you are now drinking bleach in your own
      home. Not to mention compounds that are very toxic in low amounts also lovingly added to water by our governments. (fluoride, chlorine) Huffington post is needs a good bleaching!

    • Greg Aurand

      Yes, because we can always trust that the Huffington Post, or any mainstream media source, always has it’s readers best interests as their very highest priority. There are many clinics in Mexico doing very controversial work, and getting some amazing results.

    I first heard of “Dr.” Kerri Rivera when she was hawking her MMS at the 2012 Autism One-Generation Rescue Conference.

    She is a charlatan and a pathological liar whose involved in a Multi-Level Marketing Scheme, urging credulous parents of children who have been diagnosed as having an Autism Spectrum developmental disability, to “recover” them

    Good grief, she is a science illiterate sorely lacking in basic high school organic and inorganic chemistry education.

    “MMS is an oxidizer and not an industrial bleach”, and is approved by the FDA for human consumption”, according to the pathological lying Rivera?

    Au contraire Ms. Rivera:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlorine_dioxide

    I personally don’t care what toxic substances consenting adults dose themselves with or use as enema solutions, but I care that this quack practitioner is marketing this industrial bleaching agent to parents.

    Ms Rivera presented at the 2013 Autism One-Generation Rescue conference and is scheduled as a speaker at 2014 Conference as well.

    She of course, has opened an Autism Treatment Center outside of the United States and is looking to open additional centers offshore, outside the jurisdiction of United States regulatory bodies, where this ex-pat charlatan would quickly shut down.

    Her “biomedical treatments” for parasites and for “curing” autistic kids has been roundly condemned by science journalists, science bloggers and parents of children diagnosed with ASDs.

    http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2012/06/11/miracle-mineral-solution-mms-and-autism-apologists-strike-back/

    My personal opinion of parents who experiment on their autistic kids is that they are child abusers…no different than the creepy individual who derives his/her perverse satisfaction by inflicting pain on defenseless developmentally disabled children

    • Sebastian L. Jackson

      Then there is the fact that Kerri’s mentor and the creator of MMS, an “inventor and chemist” (read: ex-gold prospector) named Jim Humble, is living in the Dominican Republic in order to dodge international arrest warrants concerning MMS-related fatalities in Africa.

      MMS was banned in Canada after fifteen drops landed a 60-year-old man in the hospital. It was banned in Australia after a tourist in Vanuatu abruptly died twelve hours after taking it. And this woman expects parents to give up to *TWENTY DROPS* of MMS a *DAY* to their kids.

      Autism One and Generation Rescue (and the host of this podcast) could not be bothered to perform cursory research on Kerri or MMS before exposing their followers and their families to this literal poison. If anyone deserves the full weight of the law, it’s Kerri and her enablers.

      • lilady R.N.

        MMS is also banned by the European Union nations, yet a number of anti-vaccine, anti-science groups support parents’ decisions to abuse the autistic children with these “treatments”

        Don’t forget that this is the third year that Kerri Rivera was invited to participate in the Autism One-Generation Rescue Conference in Chicago. Three years of articles and blogs written by physicians and science bloggers and thousands of comments appearing on those websites which roundly criticize Generation Rescue and Autism One for giving Rivera a platform to talk about her miraculous cures of autism and hawk her industrial bleach oral doses and enemas for parents to abuse their kids behind closed doors.

        How about Dave doing some due diligence about this odious charlatan Kerri Rivera and her industrial bleach and issue a retraction of his support for this woman, the Reverend Jim Humble, Generation Rescue and Autism One? He may lose some of his readers who subject their defenseless developmentally disabled children to this bizarre “biomedical treatment”, but he will gain the respect of the autism community, the science community and child advocates.

    I had an autistic child and bleach is definitely the best way to go. Just put it in their kool-aid or chocolate milk and they will drink it up. Start with just small amounts at first and then slowly up the dose each week. Thanks to just some cheap household bleach I no longer have the emotional or financial burden of an autistic child. The funeral costs were a bit pricey but way cheaper in the long run than cost of the life long care that an austist needs. And now my husband and I can start over with a clean slate and have another baby and not have to worry about it catching autism germs from our previous child.
