Kerri Rivera is one of Humble's followers. She has an autistic child herself. She wrote the book, Healing Autism, http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/0989289001 which gives you instructions on how to follow her protocol. Here is a critique of that book: http://www.bancdmms.com/#!critque-of-healing-autism---kerri-rivera/c13v6 She has a website, http://cdautism.org/ and "helps" people follow the protocol through the
Facebook page CD Autism
https://www.facebook.com/groups/AutismCD/ . She makes her money in book sales, conferences, and exclusive skype conversations charging $100 USD per hour, very much recommended for all following the protocol. She lives in Mexico, has no medical experience we know of, but has completed a course in homeopathy.

Her protocol requires children to take chlorine dioxide through drinks and enemas. These come with side effects. High temps, sickness and diarrhea, all seen as "detox". Chlorine dioxide has no health benefits whatsoever, and causes these and other health problems, including respiratory issues, dehydration, heart disease, kidney failure, liver failure, pneumonia, cirrhosis of the liver, increased chance of cancer, and even death.
This is her idea of a protocol day :
School Days - child gone from 730a.m.- 3p.m. , scheduled for 9 doses (use the oven timer to make sure you don't miss one).
5am - Get up, dose of Chlorine Dioxide (CD) , dose of Ocean Water (OW); 555am - Dose of CD; 6:50am - Dose CD; 7:05am - Breakfast, including a.m parasite protocol - Mebendazole (Meb)/Neem/Diatomaceous Earth (DE) /Rompepiedras (RP) (Stone-Breaker), eat breakfast.
Home From School :
3pm - home from school, dose CD, Dose OW, Dose Castor Oil if applicable; 4pm, 5pm, and 6pm, dose of CD.
6:15 - Dinner, including p.m parasite protocol, Meb/Neem/DE/RP); 6:45pm - CD Enema (if applicable); 7pm - CD Bath (if applicable,) ; 7:30pm - pre bedtime double dose of CD, OW, Theralac. 10pm - sleep dose of CD.
Non school days:
We get 12-16 doses per non-school day (again - use the oven timer).
Wake up - dose CD, dose OW, At least half an hour later, Breakfast, including am parasite protocol - Meb/Neem/DE/RP). Dose CD half an hour after eating, and then hourly until 30 min before the next meal. Two hours after breakfast - Castor oil (if applicable).

These Spots, rashes, marks and sores often occur during this 'treatment'.
Despite all this, she takes no responsibility for your actions in following her protocol. See Disclaimer at the bottom of the page.
The Parasite Protocol
In the Effects Section of this website, you will discover that the 'parasites' Rivera talks of, are seen by medical experts, as being fictional. Yet, she still insists children have to take these as part of their 'healing'. http://www.bancdmms.com/#!the-effects/cc3a
ATEC Scale - Please click here for article "The ATEC SCALE AND WHY IT IS NOT A RELIABLE SOURCE"
Rivera recommends parents use this scale to follow their children's progress http://www.autism.com/ind_atec. This is in no way a diagnostic scale, and doesn't claim to be. Anyway, during the child's "treatment" she encourages both therapy, like early intervention, and following a strict GAPS diet. A big focus of Rivera's protocol is the diet. Now, research has shown that autistic children very often do have gut issues, and these diets have the potential to lessen autistic traits, which in turn could lower points on her "magic" ATEC scale. It is quite similar to the GFCF diet, which produces positive results in many children. Therefore, both of these methods have the potential of lowering the scale anyway. Parents though, are convinced this is the protocol working. The problem with these scales, also, is that children can go up and down the scale, due to changes in behaviour, age etc. So if one of the child regresses slightly, she can suggest to the parents that the child can return again to the CD protocol. So positive testimonials are always available for the public to review, when a child makes progress. She's not daft is she. Another skype $100 conversation might also be encouraged for regression!
So parents eagerly give good progress reports on her website and amazon book review. You see she preys on both people's fear of autism and their naivity. She informs people that Autism is scary.
So what does Riveria class as being 'Healed' of Autism?
Kerri Rivera protocol on healing autism, is for a child to score a low mark on a scale called the ATEC scale. Under 10, and she calls them 'healed'. Well actually Kerri 1-10 means mild autism if you want to be picky. A recent post she put in a CD group claims that her own son is now 'healed', with a score of 5, yet she admits he still has a lot of communication difficulties ???? However, even due to this 'minor discrepancy', the total of 'healed' children, now stands at 140 children.
What about the 140 healed kids?
Why haven't we heard of them in the press? Why haven't autism specialist s been praising this "miracle"???
Hum, the only "evidence" we see is youtube testimonials, of parents, so proud of their kids achievements that they very often blank their faces out !!!
