My 14YO son has autism. I've been treating him with a parasite cleanse system for 1.5 years (5 days on, 2 days off). He's made some remarkable improvements, but every time I try to wean him off the cleanse, the parasite symptoms flare up. He is nonverbal and fairly low-functioning, so I don't get any feedback from him as to how he is feeling. Last week, I started him on 1 drop of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement then upped the dose to 1 drop, 2x a day this week. After about 4 days at 2 drops/day, he vomited once and had diarrhea all day. I am assuming it is the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement . I decided to drop down to 1 drop/day again until he gets beyond this. He tends to have loose stools anyway, which I am guessing is related to this ongoing battle with the parasites. His gut tends to be very sensitive to anything I give him, so I have to go very carefully with anything new like the MMS. I am still giving him the other parasite cleanse (Systemic Formulas VRM 1-4). I would love to hear anyone's ideas or insight into this. I am working with a homeopath who has done extensive research into parasite cleanses, but she has not researched MMS. I'm looking to get my son beyond these parasites once and for all. My homeopath and her colleagues are autism experts and do consults with parents from around the world. They have found that the children with autism who are considered "tough nuts" tend to also be parasite kids. With their compromised immune systems, it is difficult to eradicate parasites.
Thank you for your encouragement! I truly appreciate it because even though I have read everything I can find on Miracle-Mineral-Supplement the past few weeks, it's still a bit scary to move forward with a nonverbal child. In my search of archives and such there doesn't seem to be any discussion of anyone using it with an autistic child. I'm doing it on myself and ramping it up much faster with no side effects so far.
I agree with Johnny Apple Bomb---You're on the right track and going about it in the right way.
I'd also recommend you look into Neurofeedback as an additional adjunct for your son. I have seen numerous cases of Autism respond profoundly to this intervention---virtually normalizing kids in some cases...nearly always helping. It's well worth a try. Here's a link to a video description of what Neurofeeback is: http://www.eeginfo.com/win_video.html.

Also, in case you're not already familiar with this (though I imagine you are...you sound reasonably saavy and well researched), check out this web site: http://www.gfcfdiet.com.
It's one more thing that can make a profound difference in your son.
Thank you for your *feedback* on feedback (neuro that is ). I will look at that link. As for gf/cf diet, yes we do that with an emphasis on alkaline foods (so in addition to gf/cf, we are sugar-free, corn-free, etc.). We started him on the diet when he was 3 and first dx'd.
I have a four year old that I would like to start on Miracle-Mineral-Supplement treatment and need to know the actual protocol step by step. WHere can I obtain that? He is somewhat high functioning and we have already changed his diet to non Gleuten, non dairy, no soy. Now ready to start the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement . Can you or do you kknow anyone who could help me obtain this information?
