My Experience with Chelation

My older son
turned eight-years-old in October 2002. My wife and I have
another three-year-old son. Both of them are the light of our
life. We live in a small town in Florida.
Both of my sons' births were without any complications. However,
my older son could not open both of his index fingers for the
first six months. He was constantly sick and did not progress as
other kids of his age. I guess he could be classified as having
classic autism because he never progressed, then regressed. He
did not progress at all. From the outside, he looked normal and
is a very handsome boy.
At his six-year-old Battelle Developmental evaluation by a local
school psychologist in April 2000, his communication level was
determined to be that of a 12-month-old boy. This was despite my
wife and I working with him 50 to 60 hours a week since he
turned three. At six-years-old, my older son could only call my
wife "mom" and was completely nonverbal. We sold our successful
business and most of our other assets to pay for his expensive
medical and therapy bills.
Forwarding to the next two years, he is now eight year old, in a
regular second grade without any aids, and the youngest brown
belt of Kempo Karate (all his classmates are between 11 and 14
years old normal kids). These are not bad achievements for a kid
that could not hold a spoon to eat just two years ago.
How did he recover in this short time? My only known answer is
Mercury chelation. Do I oppose vaccination? No. Do I think that
Mercury in vaccines had caused my son autism? I do not know.
Could my older son's recovery be a miracle? Well, according to
my older son's school psychologist, it was a miracle. Every time
I talked to her, she continued to tell me that my son's recovery
was a miracle.
I can go on and on talking about all the things that we have
encountered as parents of two children with autism. However, I
understand that you must have known because your son is much
older than mine. I can only share with you how removing Mercury,
Lead and Arsenic out of both my sons' brains have helped them.
Chelation of any toxic chemicals (with the exception of lead)
have always considered as quack medicine by the established
medical community. I have to admit that I was first very
skeptical of this method being a cure of autism (well, Mercury
toxic children). I did want to get rid of my sons' autism. I
firmly believe that is the way they are. However, my goal was to
remove the toxic chemicals residing in their brains. I too would
want my parents to chelate me if I have those toxic chemicals in
Chelation is not an easy process and required a lot of hard work
and attention. We have been detoxifying both of our children for
the last one-and-one-half year. We use Andy Cutler's protocol
with three days on and eleven days off. Neither of us have any
educational background in Chemistry or in medically related
fields. As far as my concerns, I am not an authority to tell
anyone how to treat his or her children of mercury toxicity.
Nevertheless, until the medical community can tell us (parents
with children with autism) what have caused autism, I think we
should try Mercury chelation. I do hope to see positive results
of Mercury chelation on other children with autism as I continue
to see on both of mine.
