Buttar, Rashid -https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/antipurplistconspiracy/dr-buttar-autism-cancer-and-chelation-t203.html   "Autism is nothing more than a predisposition, a genetic predisposition, for the inability to secrete metals (esp. mercury).  The people that say that thimerosal does not have a relationship in autism. They are trying to argue that a poison is not a poison. I have a material safety data sheet from Eli Lilly from June,1991 that clearly states that thimerosal is not only known to cause significant neurological impairments, but is also known to cause mental retardation...Mercury is the 2nd most destructive substance known to man, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the Centers for Disease Control, according to any person that knows anything about toxicity, mercury is the second most toxic substance known to man. (Asked 'After what?') 'Uranium is 1st.'  He talks about thimerosal discovered in four vials marked as 'thimerosal free' and lead to congressional hearings. Says Burton and Diane Watson of California wanted criminal sanctions. Dr. Buttar goes into the fact that thimerosal does not have to be disclosed if it enters through the manufacturing process instead of being added as perservative which would be disclosed. 1
Buttar says mitochondrial damage is 1 of 3 mechanisms that mercury does its damage."

"The diagnostic term 'mental retardation' is finally being eliminated in the upcoming international classifications of diseases and disorders. The term 'mental retardation' was introduced by the American Association on Mental Retardation in 1961 and soon afterwards was adopted by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM-5).[1,2] Mental retardation replaced older terms such as feeblemindedness, idiocy, and mental subnormality that had become pejorative. Now, over 5 decades later, the term 'mental retardation' is being eliminated for similar reasons."

"A 2002 Supreme Court ruling allowed states to set their own definitions of mental retardation to decide who meets the criteria for execution. Instead of adopting the Supreme Courtís accepted clinical standards for mental retardation, Texas has granted heavy leeway to psychologist evaluations. Now one psychologist, George Denkowski, is facing scrutiny over methods that critics say unfairly send mentally retarded prisoners to death row...Go to the texasobserver.org to see the video and read the article."

Brownstein, Dr David  Iodine -Why You Need It.  Why You Can't Live Without Itwww.drbrownstein.com  W Bloomfield, Michigan, USA  "The World Health Organization (WHO 11/12/1998) has recognized that iodine deficiency is the world's greatest single cause of preventable mental retardation...Iodization of salt was introduced solely to decrease the rate of goiter and mental retardation (cretinism)."  In addition to regular consumption of seaweed and iodized salt one may want to consider 2 daily drops of Lugol's Iodine (5% iodine + 10% potassium iodide in H20) or a daily Iodoral tablet form of Lugol's solution, especially if one's Armour thyroid prescription is insufficient.  (Lack of sufficient iodine can also trigger depression in some individuals.  Be reminded to include seafood such as fish, seaweed, sea salt in your weekly diet.)
Vitamin C facilitates enzymes necessary for tryosine (and other body amino acids) metabolism.  "Tryosine is required...for the production of the hormones thyroxine and adrenaline, and it is also the source for the pigment melanin.  Without it (tryosine), then, one uses body fuel too slowly and the marks of cretinism (arrested mental and physical development) can be a consequence."  Burtis, C.

Chavda, Mahesh - South Carolina, USA - The Hidden Power of Prayer and Fasting - www.watchofthelord.com
http://www.amazon.com/The-Hidden-Power-Prayer-Fasting/dp/0768424100#reader_0768424100
read online chapter #1 What Is the Answer for Stevie? (with Down's syndrome)
Mahesh did 1, 7, 13, 14, 21, and 40 days fasts, and continues to do them, as the Lord leads.  His 1st fast began with 3 days of neither food nor water, followed by 13 days of water only.  Day 14 he was allowed to pray for Stevie, resulting in Stevie's healing from Down's syndrome and self-mutilation.
[This 3 day fast might be looked upon as (1) Christ was buried in the tomb 3 days/nights, (2) Jonah was in the belly of the giant fish 3 days, and (3) there are 3 persons in the Trinity. (Sometimes to undo a curse, things need to be done/said 3 times, to counteract the counterfeit activity of Satan.  Some prayers we need to repeat 3X in order to break curses or linkages to evil that have been invoked 3X to blaspheme the Trinity.  We can pray to end a curse: in the name of the Father; repeat the prayer in the name of the Son; repeat prayer again in the name of the Holy Spirit.  Otherwise, we can repeat the prayer 3x, each time ending with: in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost/Spirit.  Actually we can/should command "the curse" to be broken, rather than asking God to do it.  "Curse, be broken, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."
Regarding the 21 day fasts, one can refer to when Daniel sought the Lord and got a message from an angel that he had been fighting his way to bring a message to Daniel. Daniel 10:12-14 12He said to me, "Fear not, Daniel, for from the 1st day you set your heart to understand and chasten (perhaps by fasting?) yourself before God, your words were heard.  I have come because of your words (prayers). 13The prince (strongman/ evil spirit/Satan's representative) of the kingdom of Persia withstood me 21 days
Lo, Michael, one of the chief princes (holy angels) came to help me and I remained there with the kings of Persia.  14Now I have come to make you understand."  Most know that Jesus was tempted by Satan after a 40 day fast. See Matthew, chapter 4.)]
Mahesh says, "For the first 19 (of 29 40-day fasts), I limited my intake to water only.  After that, the Lord allowed me to drink juices."   (The quote does not appear to mean water only for 19 days, followed by juice 21 days for a total of 40 days.)
(An aside, eating was part of the original road to sin by the first people, Adam and Eve.  Eating (pacifying one's emotions/appetite) may be a giant vulnerability in the human race.  That may be part of the reason why fasting is so effective in the spiritual world.)
