I saw Jim Carrey and his wife Jenny McCarthy on Larry King Live speaking about vaccines. They were extremely well informed about how the health care business works in the U.S. As I listened to the interview, I saw why they are so passionate about the topic and the idea that good health should focus on prevention of disease. Their son was diagnosed with autism at an early age.
Both Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey are actively involved in autism-related causes. McCarthy wrote the book called “Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism.”
Their criticism of the modern medical system and the lack of training doctors have in nutrition in prevention of disease was very pointed.
Jenny McCarthy states that her son Evan who is autistic has healed through alternative methods. She discusses these methods in her third book on the subject, “Healing and Preventing Autism.”
Jenny McCarthy believes that vaccines caused her son Evan’s autism. She feels parents should question doctors more carefully to determine if the various shots are necessary.
“I’m not anti-vaccine,” she said. “I’m not an idiot. I get that we need them, but I do think people need to wake up and take a look at the schedule… and why did we triple the amount?”
As far as their practice of yoga, Jim Carrey does not practice any but really appreciates the fact that his wife does and is extremely supportive of her practice.
Jenny McCarthy engages in Bikram Yoga for 90 minutes a day. That is quite a lot of yoga on a daily basis!
For those who don’t know, Bikram Yoga is practiced with heat turned up fairly high and really makes one sweat profusely.
In addition to yoga, Jenny McCarthy focuses on a good diet to stay healthy and slim.
