I am the mom of a child with autism. I belong to several national group sites, one of which has distributors for Lifewave pedaling their products to the parents of sick children.

I read with interest the 150+ page long thread on this site regarding Lifewave energy patches, and was disgusted to see it was dated in 2005! They have been doing this THAT long?? Then I noticed a thread from 2007 laughing about how they are STILL talking about the Lifewave scam. Well I am here to tell you, it is officially live and well.

They now have a new marketing technique - the glutathione patch that will heal autistic children. The costs are enormous, and it makes me sick to see them taking advantage of these parents with such a ridiculous product. Of course, all of the glowing testimonials are from parents who just happen to be distributors themselves.

What can be done about this????? Argh! I nearly peed myself laughing at the debunking of Lifewave’s “studies” proving their claims for the energy patches….. oh they have more now, for the glut patches, they have a “testimonial” from the swim coach at Harvard! Seriously, the swim coach! And they want about $70 a month for this shit.

Lifewave submitted a patent to the FDA that was apparently rejected. Does anyone know how to find this info?

Yeah, they’re not known for giving up easily. Make a cheap, worthless product that ‘has been linked to’ helping people ‘in some cases’, and you’ve a formula for quack medicine throughout history. LifeWave just doesn’t know when to step away from a scam and perhaps try something under a new name…

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

You could try Google.  The first hit when I typed in “lifewave rejected patent” (without the quotes) gave this link to a blog ripping LifeWave (surprise!).

Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the .pdf file he provides as proof of the patent being rejected to open.  But I bet a little digging around will find it if you look.

Autism, right now, requres intense and early treatment for the person to be able to operate in the “real world.”  There are no miracle treatments for anything

And the parents crying wondering what they did wrong.  We have worked hard with our son, he is so that most can’t tell he has autism.

I don’t have a lot of experience with autism.I know a parent will have to do a lot of research on the right kind of therapy.  Are there any good parent/kid support groups for autism in your area?  And the reason I say the “real world” is that normal a lot of times is whatever someone says it is, so your child has a lot of room to be hisself

Well, actually there are cures for some mental disorders.  Mostly drugs don’t do it alone, though, except in very special cases.

Autism is a brain disorder, not a mental disorder.  There is a difference.

But still would you risk a scam to save a person you love? Who knows it may be deadly but to save a loved one there is no cost

That’s the thing, silver. People will pay a lot of money to scammers selling all sorts of cures for that very reason.

That’s the attitude taken by the victims of this scam. They are willing to believe anything that will help them, even lacking any evidence.

And this is why I hate this type of scammer the most of all.
Telling people that they can ‘cure’ their loved one is the lowest of the low, when they know that’s not the case.
