Jett Travolta

My heart goes out to the Travolta family. I used to have such disdain over their Scientology beliefs - not recognizing Autism in their son, letting him "just be", not maximizing his potential, giving him as many choices as possible. But hey, I'm not his parent. Every family is different and who knows what his individual deficits were. I had always fantasized that they'd be another powerhouse Autism family, Hollywood style.

But today I feel guilty about that judgement I made and my fantasy. No doubt Jett had a happy full life. I am so sad for their loss. One of our people on top of a child. I find myself always thinking about them now. I can't imagine what they must be going through.

Jett got to be with his family at Christmas, and swim in the ocean in the Bahamas. I'm sure it was a nice life. Not everyone has to be a poster child. Look at me, I'd be a hypocrite for not recognizing our anonimity. Our son has a good life too, who's to say that Jett's life was less full? I hope they can manage living after their loss, and do what they can to stay together as a couple and provide love and a life for the rest of their kids.

Since the Travoltas have remained out of the autism-limelight, I'd forgotten about Jett being autistic when I first read the news of his death. Indeed, a tragic loss. My heart goes out to them.

Regarding ASD, and particularly Asperger’s Syndrome, anything given to subdue diagnosis of transient mental health issues involving autism will fade or have a paradoxical effect thereby increasing manifestations of behavior for which the medication was prescribed in the first place, so Travolta’s determination not to use medications to influence his son’s health is appropriate, in my opinion

Autism is no mystery as pop culture medical health care providers would have the public believe. It is a neurological issue occurring in the cerebellum and has as it’s basis poorly developed Purkinje neurons. Medical research has proven this, but mainstream health care is avoiding it at all costs due to immense medical responsibility for health care of autistic subscribers. These health care needs involve ABA, OT speech and sensory integration therapy. Autistic people are poorly served without these interventions

The neurological issue involving Purkinge neurons is excitation of these tissues increases cell capacitance triggering a HPA reaction subsequently causing sustained anxiety and panic. Behavior for which diagnosis and prescription medication issue are based on acute/chronic panic which present in focal seizures and a need for leg movement/dyskinesia, what appears to be osmotic demyelination resulting in inability to drink water or eat food accompanied by severe fecal impaction, and confused patterns of speech that accompany dehydration. All of these symptoms are related to panic.

It’s true that puberty is a difficult period of development for autistic children, but that’s because they can not function socially competitively like their peers, and their increasing panic in these circumstances manifests in what psychiatrists consider to be bizarre patterns of behavior…which is bunk. Again, these children are at a critical turning point in their development where they need ABA, OT speech and sensory integration support.. Medication in these circumstances is barbaric.

Do know there are two forms of autism, and this information is not strange to medicine - nor our government. Ronald Regan deregulated the production of infant formula alleging to free the people of governmental influence in the private affairs of it’s citizens, but know that sinister politics were unfolding. Without FDA regulation, formula manufacturers could produce an inferior product leaving behind governmental involvement in what would become a 20 year research project aimed at mind control. Absent of Omega 3 micro nutrition, infant formula doomed children weaned from breast milk to formula nutritional deprivation that results in neurological impairment of Purkinge neurons. That was only the beginning of a research project that escalated to massive medical diagnosis of behavior disorders and autism in connection with immunizations.

Autism is a neurological condition that effects development of Purkinje neurons both during gestation and after a child is born. Classic autism involves development of Purkinje arbors, and this condition results in poorly arborated cortical tissue in the cerebellum. This condition is not reversible, but such children are hugely supported through ABA, OT speech and sensory integration activities. There are limitations on cerebral functioning that although are understood in connection with this problem will not be elaborated here.

Asperger’s syndrome, or high functioning autism, is the result of poorly myelinated Purkinje axons, a phenomenon that can occur as a result of a parent’s inability to produce Omega 3 nutrition in breast milk during infancy, or it can occur due to a lack of Omega 3 from the infant diet. This brings us the diabolical nexus involving Reagan, the FDA and our government. Don’t believe me though. Just Read Reagan’s Bohn speech and figure it out for yourself. Do know that FDA began regulation of Infant formula culminating the government’s research in 2002, but formula manufactured in the US and exported to Canada remains unfortified with Omega 3.

Anyway, with a governmental research project well under way, things started to get out of control when children suddenly began developing autism after being immunized sometime between two and four years of age, and of course, it was fairly rapidly understood in the medical community that the cause of this was a chemical terotogen in the immunization, which is completely true. Of particular concern has been thimerisal, but other pharmaceutical adjuvants (aluminum hydroxide, aluminum potassium sulfate, formalin and synthetically derived methonal) are involved as well.

Thimerisal was used as an active ingredient in immunizations and attacks myelin. Children receiving immunizations manufactured with thimerisal and who were not breast fed during the first 24 months of infancy have been at high risk for developing Asperger’s syndrome..

The Purkinge neuron myelinates during the first two years of life, and Omega 3 micro nutrition is necessary for this to occur. Infant children who do not receive an adequate amount of Omega 3 suffer poorly myelinated Purkinge axons which predispose them to the demyelinating effects of thimerisal, hence late onset of autism, or more appropriately Asperger’s Syndrome. This is dually damning for children who suffer from classic autism as well.

Clearly, Jett Travolta presented autistic in both appearance and behavior. What his father was allegedly obsessed with was the role of psychiatry in his dons diagnosis, which is understandable: however, autism/Asperger’s Syndrome are not psychiatric diagnosis. They are medical. Did John Travolta not know this? If not, why?
