Kansas mother makes two autistic sons drink toxic bleach saying they 'deserve relief' from their torturous disorder
Lauren Austin has insisted that MMS, or Miracle Mineral Solution, which falls in the family of bleach has worked wonders for her two autistic sons
LENEXA, KANSAS: A Kansas mom has come under fire after she admitted to giving two of her autistic sons bleach because it improved their symptoms.
Lauren Austin, from Lenexa, Kansas, said all four of her children have autism, and of the four, three are "vaccine-injured." While two of them are fully functioning, Jeremy, her 28-year-old son, has the most severe form of autism that means he often screams and bites himself unprovoked.
Austin had noticed facial ticks, grand mal seizures, and self-inflicted biting when he was just 18-months-old, and by the time he was three, he had completely stopped speaking, according to Fox4kc.
"When you have someone who tears up their arms and screams all the time and can't speak and they're trapped in their own body—that's not normal, and that's not something they were born with," she insisted. "That's tortuous, and he deserves relief from that."
When the conventional solutions failed, she turned to MMS or Miracle Mineral Solution. MMS is sodium chlorite mixed with hydrochloric acid, which is a solution that falls in the family of bleach.
It has been described as "corrosive and toxic," and the US Food and Drug Administration has put out a release which highlighted its "potentially life-threatening side effects."
Austin, however, insisted that the solution had worked miracles after she started administering them to two of her sons in June 2018.
"We've had amazing health improvements, amazing behavior improvements," she said. "This has changed everything."
She said while Jeremy normally suffered up to five seizures a month, he had had none since she started him on MMS. She said his aggression was all but gone as well. "My children have had improved health," she said. "If I was poisoning them with bleach, wouldn't their health be getting worse instead of better?"
"He's a lot calmer," she continued. "He's also started saying, 'Mom,' which I haven't heard since he was three. My heart just almost jumped out of my chest because it's what I've been praying for since he was little."
The childrens' father, Brad Austin, declined "standby guardianship" rights in 2008 and said his ex-wife is poisoning the boys. "She's giving Joshua and Jeremy bleach to try to cure their autism," he said. "It is akin to child abuse in my opinion."
