A TikToker calls out “crisp” parenting conspiracy theories

If you’ve ever visited parenting blogs on social media, chances are you’ve come across a “crunch” parent. The name points to a form of neo-hippieism or as The house and homestead puts it: The definition of a ‘busty mom’ is a mom who practices natural parenting.”

But what does that look like? Some crisp moms give birth at home, swaddle their babies in cloth diapers, prepare their own organic baby formula, sleep together, breastfeed, and believe in baby-led weaning.

Some Crunchies are anti-vaccination and eschew any modern medical solutions, although other naturopaths vaccinate their children and encourage their peers to do so.

However, Crunchy Parents is often perceived as anti-traditional medical advice and is often derided for touting health concepts that aren’t based on scientific principles, like this viral TikTok criticizing Crunchy Parents for claiming they’ve cured a child’s autism , so a cabal of elites harvest children through human trafficking, and this sunscreen causes skin cancer.

@iamlevelingup I’m appalled but not surprised. It’s always the same #fearmongering 😵‍💫 #scaretactics #crunchycult #thisisthebadplace #excrunchytt ♬ Original sound – Baroness Von Ginger

Laura (@iamlevelingup) captioned the now-viral TikTok, “I’m appalled but not surprised.”

The text of the video reads: “Crunchy cult on Insta. This [poop emoji] really sucks.” The video then cuts to a screenshot of the parent’s autism cure post, which reads, “When the neurologist and developmental pediatrician said you couldn’t cure autism…well, we did!”

It appears the screenshot post is from TikToker @jodiemeschuk. In the video, she continues: “In a month that celebrates one of the biggest lies ever told to parents and one of the greatest tragedies [t]o happens to… kids… I’m here to tell you that autism is not what you want us to believe and that you can recover from it and prevent it.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, “There is no cure for autism spectrum disorder, and there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. The goal of treatment is to maximize your child’s functioning by reducing symptoms of autism spectrum disorder and supporting development and learning.”

There are various other medical institutions that reflect these views and state that the disorder can be lived and autistic individuals and their loved ones can implement treatment plans to help them better manage and manage their autism, which manifests itself in many different ways manifested .

Another featured post on Laura’s TikTok alleges that children are being trafficked by “the elites” as a form of human sacrifice and having their adrenochrome drained from their bodies in what many have branded a “Qanon blood draw conspiracy.”

The video featured other screengrabs claiming AIDS is being stuffed into vaccines, anti-gun control rhetoric, and another post by Jodie Meschuk.

Commenters were shocked to see the Crunchy community’s claims.

A former Crunchy creator said: “I always get comments like, ‘There is no Crunchy cult! You just had a bad group of friends… stop judging!’”

Another commenter said: “This makes me really sad. When did we take a wrong turn?”

A third shared: “My cousin is a crunchy Q victim. I feel so bad because I don’t know how to get her out.”

Another agreed: “It made me sooooooo sad that people believe that.”
