WARNING: A quack, who appears to be a Scientologist, advertises “cure” for autism

The first post about this “treatment” was published by human rights activist Fiona O’Leary on her Tumblr, here: SPOT! New Quack Treatment!

A Hungarian quack called Zoltán “Sági” Tóth, along with his two Hungarian associates, is selling a “cure” for autism.

His English is horrible, so I did not really come across what his “mental training” is really all about. Fortunately for us, he was also questioned about it in his native language and his answers are more telling. The whole chat has been published here in Hungarian, and here are the relevant details.

Based on his reactions and quotes, he is very likely a Scientologist.

Here are some of the things he said (explaining how his “reaction-based mental training” works). He basically states that autism is caused by an unresolved trauma, and by having the person repeatedly talk about the trauma  would discharge it and autism would disappear.

For examples, if someone was bitten by a dog then later he will be spooked even when a puppy barks. So, if I imitate the sound of a dog, then it would be visible whether he had been hurt by a dog or not.

DNS is the first entry of the system of traumas.
The second one is the conception.
The third are the fears and shocks experienced by the mother during the 9 months of pregnancy.

This is an interpretation of the engram & reactive mind theory as contained in the Dianetics book, written by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

I am the first one in the world to fully cure an autistic person and therefore I copyrighted my procedure.

L. Ron Hubbard could have wrote this.

We will know then what is at the core of his/her system of traumas, and where should we proceed to transform him/her into a fully sane person.

Tóth Zoltán Sagi
“Sane” means that his negative traumas  were transformed into experiences and he has a very high-level and objective system of conclusions.

That’s what Hubbard wrote about Dianetics auditing, basically.

It costs 1,2 million HUF ( around 4000 USD) to fully rehabilitate a person. It takes several months of work. (Note: the price is around double for UK customers.)

Also, according to his Facebook profile, he is friends with virtually every prominent Scientologist in Hungary, including the Executive Director of Budapest Org, the Chairwoman of the OT Committee, the President of WISE Central Europe, org staff members and Scientology businessman.
