Autism triggered by MMR vaccine?

A desperate Malaysian mother of a toddler emailed me in November 2014, saying:

I stay in Klang, Selangor, Malaysia.

My son 5 years old hyperactive, tiptoe walking more like he has autism. Everything went wrong until now no improvement. Please help how could my son become independent as we parents always have nightmares over his behavior.

I went for consultation with international phychology centre, acupunchure, homeopathy, ayurvedic herbal liquid, occupation therapy, etc. all very expensive.

Thanks & regards,

Elsa (not her real name)

Dear Elsa,

I understand your concern. I will confer with Dr Estuita, MD, the chelationist, what chelation therapy can do to treat autism.

Was your son vaccinated with MMR (measles, mumps rubella)? This is known to cause autism. No matter, I will email you after conferring with Dr. Estuita.

Warm regards,


Hi there,

First of all thanks for your kind reply. Whether my son injected with MMR or not ? The answer would be 'Yes' . Slowly he become high fever for 2 weeks admitted in Hospital then once discharged from hospital he got ' Chicken pox ' and a few words he speaks earlier after fever all collapse to zero and no improvement at all.

Everyday we as parents cry watching him running from one corner to another corner with his 'tip toe ' .

Thanks & regards,


Dear Elsa,

A pity, I suspected so that MMR might be the culprit in the autism. There are cases like that among Filipinos. I will confer with Dr. Estuita tomorrow as he is out of town today.

Warm regards,


Dear Elsa,

Dr. Estuita wants some questions answered as part of his diagnosis by long distance. He asks these and please give answers.

How old is the patient? What is the complete diagnosis? How many children are they? What medicines were given? Does he go to school? What are the manifestations (or symptoms)?

Answers to these questions will help him find how chelation can treat autism.

Warm regards,


Hi there,

1) My son is 5 years old.

2) Hyperactive, delay in speech (no single word) and sensory problem.

3) He is the only child in my family.

4) Medicine - pre & probiotic, gluten-free milk, vitamin C and homeopathy.

5) No school yet 'house full' limited students - booked last year still under waiting list. One session for Occupational therapy once a month in Government Hospital.

6) symptoms - Tip-toe walking, running from one corner to another corner, restless, bites his hands sometimes other people’s hands, suddenly puts both fingers into ear's hole, making sound with tongue outside and very hard to sleep at night around 3 to 4 am everyday.

Thanks & regards,


Not isolated

The case of Elsa’s son is not an isolated case of autism being linked with MMR vaccine. Several cases are now being reported in Europe, to wit:

“Italian Court Rules MMR Vaccine Caused Autism

“Valentino Bocca was given an MMR shot in 2004, at the age of 15 months. According to his parents, the change in his behavior was immediate. That same night he refused to eat, and he developed diarrhea during the night. It quickly went downhill from there. Within days he was no longer able to put a spoon to his mouth, and he spent nights crying in pain. His parents immediately suspected the vaccination, but were told this was "impossible." Valentino progressively regressed, and received the diagnosis of autism a year later.

“In the final analysis, the Italian Health Ministry disagreed with the initial conclusion of the pediatrician, conceding that the vaccine was at fault.

“As a result, a court in Rimini, Italy recently awarded the Bocca family a 15-year annuity totaling 174,000 Euros (just under $220,000), plus reimbursement for court costs, ruling that Valentino "has been damaged by irreversible complications due to vaccination (prophylaxis trivalent MMR)." According to a featured article in the UK newspaper, The Independent, about 100 similar cases are now being examined by Italian lawyers, and more cases may be brought to court” (Dr. Mercola. Italian Court Reignites MMR Vaccine Debate After Award Over Child with Autism. Internet. Dec. 23,2014).

News blackout in USA

It's well worth mentioning that this story has yet to be addressed in the US media... The Daily Mail was the first paper in the UK to talk about it on June 15. The Independent was the second to print an article, on June 17. The Daily Mail was the most substantive of the two (Dr. Mercola).

“It's virtually impossible to read an article about the MMR vaccine without coming across a reference to British gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew Wakefield's 1998 research published in The Lancet, which suggested there may be a link between the MMR vaccine, chronic bowel disease, and autism. Ever since the article's publication, it has remained one of the most cited yet controversial studies on the topic of vaccine safety” (Dr. Mercola).

Family friend

A family friend of mine has a daughter, the eldest, and two sons. All of them were vaccinated with MMR at birth. The sons are now autistic. It is easier to accept if only one of them were autistic. But two? Poor children, they do not go to school, just wandering around at daytime. The only good thing is that they don’t hurt themselves, can ride a passenger jeep, and mix with people. If you did not have a long encounter with them, you would not suspect that they were autistic.

Stem cell therapy

There are now cases when stem cell therapy is used to treat autism successfully. It is either that stem cell therapy corrects the defective brain cells or replaces them. Dr. Estuita, MD is also administering stem cell therapy that costs less than those done in other countries or other clinics in the Philippines.
