Can Immune Dysregulation Cause Neurodevelopmental Disorders?

Sad_boy_Featured_ImageFrom Children's Health Defense (formerly World Mercury Project.)

A common criticism of the Western medical model is that it tends to look at body systems in isolation from one another. Here and there, however, scientific disciplines arise that explicitly acknowledge interactions across systems. Neuroimmunology is one such field, having established that the central nervous system (CNS) and the immune system engage in bidirectional communication and that proper brain function depends on a well-regulated immune system.

As neuroimmunologists have come to accept that “components of the immune system play previously unrecognized roles in the nervous system,” the field has contributed substantially to the understanding of neurodevelopmental disorders and particularly autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Neuroimmunology’s insights about ASD have been sorely needed because, on the surface, autism remains a subjectively defined “mental health” diagnosis (at least according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), characterized by “dysfunction in social behavior and language, abnormal response to sensory input, and…repetitive behavior and cognitive disabilities.” As autism research has grown in sophistication—increasingly highlighting ASD’s underlying biological basis—it has become apparent that immune dysregulation is just as much of a hallmark of autism as brain inflammation is. What is more, the wrong kind of immune influences during pivotal stages of early brain development can have profound effects on both neural and immune function later in life.
ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders perfectly illustrate the situation of immune-inflammatory mechanisms gone awry.

Skewed immune response

Under ordinary circumstances, the immune system mobilizes inflammatory molecules in response to infection or tissue damage; once the job is done, the inflammatory response subsides. However, a delicate balance exists between the appropriate activation needed for “beneficial immune maintenance” and the “deleterious over-activation of immune cells” that can lead to systemic dysfunction. ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders perfectly illustrate the situation of immune-inflammatory mechanisms gone awry.

A 2015 review outlined this “pro-inflammatory skew” in ASD, noting that autism is characterized, in part, by “hyperexcitable” and “exaggerated” responses from T cells—the all-important immune cells that attack foreign substances, augment the action of antibody-producing B cells and produce molecular messengers called cytokines. Autism researchers have noted the complex roles played by cytokines in neurodevelopment and have repeatedly observed elevated levels of some cytokines in individuals with ASD—including interleukin-4 (IL-4), interleukin-6 (IL-6), some types of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and others. Elevated IL-4 in neonates has been associated with increased odds of severe ASD later in childhood. These “excessive and skewed cytokine responses” typify the ASD immune profile to such an extent that researchers have proposed using cytokine evaluation as a biological marker for ASD. According to the authors of the 2015 review, skewed immune-inflammatory mechanisms are not just associated with ASD but likely play a fundamental role in autism causation.  Read more here.



UPDATE: Thurs., Oct. 4 "Healthy Schools"
The other comment from Jeannette Bishop contains a link to a >< story that DOES work!
Seems a company called "Healthy Schools" gave a flu shot to a student whose parent had written "NO FLU SHOT" on the form the school provided, which they had sent back to school with the student, but the kid was given a flu shot anyway!
"Healthy Schools" seems to have dealt with the situation reasonable well. "Healthy Schools" was started by a former Jacksonville Jaguars player. (Is that Pro Basketball, or football? Whatever, huh!?)
In the news release from "Healthy Schools", they freely admit that 20% of persons who DIED from the flu, HAD GOTTEN the FLU SHOT!.... So even if you get vaxxed, you've got a 20% chance of dying from the flu? Doesn't seem like that flu vaxx is very effective to me!
KEEP UP the GOOD WORK, People!


Thurs., Oct 4, 2018, *UPDATE*!
In her comment above, Jeannette Bishop includes a link to a story on ><, about Santa Rosa County School District suspending their student vaccination program. *BUT*, when I clicked on the link just now, and went to the ><, the story was GONE! 3 other stories on the same page were still there, but NOT the VAX story! Yes, of course there could be some other, simple, innocent explanation. But I choose to believe that the story was CENSORED! And as I write this, I see that Jeannette Bishop has included another link in a different comment, so let me go see if THAT link is still good....
KEEP UP the GOOD WORK, People!

@Bill- I think you will be much interested in what Dr. Chris Shaw has to say about aluminium in vaccines on the topic of how they stimulate an immune response in the brain that may last many years. You can see him speaking on youtube.

Teresa Conrick- To Gary

Hi Gary,

Thanks so much! Yes, there is an increasing amount of research showing different negative hits on the gut microbiome. This is indeed another.

thanks again-

Some follow-up reporting on the Santa Rosa SD vaccine program:

Gary Ogden

Anna Quandt: It most certainly said it all. Like psychiatry and pediatrics, much of virology is pure bunk.

Gary Ogden

Jeanette Bishop: It is worse here in California. They don't even bother to ask for consent. Once a child reaches the age of twelve, the school nurse can inject any approved vaccine without the parents' knowledge or consent. This law predates SB 277. A fascist pharmatopia we have here in the Golden State. Golden for the drug cartel, I guess.

Jeannette Bishop

I wish the government schools would read this.

Just turning in the unchecked consent form with written refusal on it is giving consent? Oh, wait, another child (from among "a number of other parents" that have contacted the news station with their stories), now sick, was vaccinated without any form sent in...

Anna Quandt

About ten years ago I had a brief conversation with a virologist from a major university. We were discussing environmental illness and I asked, "How long will it take for scientists to discover that pesticides are causing bee hive colony collapse.?" He said, " No. We know colony collapse is caused by a virus."
I said, "And don't you think the pesticides weaken the immune system allowing the virus to take hold?"
"Ooh," he said. "The immune system! No one understands the immune system. And the immune system of bees??"

I thought it said it all.

Life expectancy progress in UK 'stops for first time'


The single biggest take-away that I get from the article above, is that the DSM-5 truly IS nothing more than a catalog of billing codes. All of the so-called "mental illnesses" in it were INVENTED, not discovered, and they all serve as excuses to $ELL DRUG$. Psychiatry has NO, or very little place in any "autism spectrum disorder", which is a neuro-developmental condition. Sadly, psychiatry is trying to co-opt neurology with the bastard child creation of so-called "neuro-psychiatry". I still believe that so-called "autism spectrum disorders" CAN be caused in some people, when some vaxxes result in an autoimmune response that triggers a brain/nerve inflammation. That's a little over-simplified, maybe, but I believe it's basically correct. That's all PHYSICAL, not "mental".

Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising...

Fluoride's neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From 'conspiracy theories' about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional 'seat of the soul' – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.
