Hi, and thanks to everyone who answered my reply.
This sort of thing scares me, and I just wanted to get everyones point of view.
I promise you ilizzy my doctor will explain fully, I just like to be informed as well, and I want to make a good choice on this, I appreciate both sides to the issue
Julie - thank you for your long, considered reply. That was great introduction to Mercury Chelation and I am pleased it is going so well for you. I am assuming you are going to complete the rounds. Can I ask a couple of questions - how old was your daughter when you started, how did you deal with school etc, or was your child at home. I ask this as he is at school for 8 hours a day.
I just re-read your email and I just want to make this clear - you chelate through the night as well? When you say 'expect some irratibility, unpleasantness and lethargy' are you talking about your lack of continuous sleep or the childs?
Anyway - well done! Hats off, that is a fierce regime.

Please do not think I was suggesting diet chelates anything. What I
think my friend was getting at was that some of the folks she knew
did well with diet only because it allowed their body to release what
was stuck in the GI tract and allowed the gut/neuro system for lack
of a better phrase, to again function properly.
I am troubled that this dr. wants to chelate without explaining why
he thinks there is more to come, etc.
What does EDTA chelate?

Some doctors prefer transdermal creams and others dose it orally.

> DMSA is available without prescription from www.vrp.com It is FDA
approved for lead and mercury chelation.
> DMPS is available with prescription only. It is not FDA approved,
but is a powerful mercury chelator, even better than DMSA. It is not
FDA approved in the US, but is used in Japan and Germany.

are available from www.kirkmanlabs.
DMSA or ALA.
> ALA is the only chelator for sure to cross the blood brain barrier
and has to be used to clear mercury from the brain. Debate about DMSA
or DMPS getting into the brain or not continues.
> All chelators cause yeast overgrowth. You need a very good yeast
protocol, preferably with a prescription antifungal. Stay clear of
food that feeds yeast. Be aware that yeast can cause temporary
regression and ickiness. It can cause those problems when it is dying
> Dosing should be done in 1/8 mg to 1/4 mg per pound, aproximately
12.5 to 25 mg for a child. Give DMSA every 4 hours for 3 days. Give
ALA every 3 hours for 3 days. Give DMPS every 8 hours for 3 days. If
using DMSA and ALA together, do every 3-4 hours. Dosing does take
place at night.
> Take 4 to 11 days off inbetween.
> Supplement with appropriate minerals and vitamins during and
between chelating. (Usually high doses of zinc, calcium, vitamin C,
magnesium and molybdenum work well).
> Do not chelate when sick.
> DO NOT CHELATE ANYONE WITH MERCURY FILLINGS!!!!
> If a child can't swallow a pill, open the capsule and empty it into
a tiny amount of juice.
> If a dose is missed, stop the round.
> A round is a 3 day period. It takes approximately 100 to 125 rounds
to get better, meaning 2-5 years.
> If this is followed properly, regression is minimal.
> Expect some mild irritability, lethargy, and unpleasantness when
first starting. Improvement should be seen within 10 rounds.
Improvement is slow but noticeable. There is a stall period for
several months (between 6 and 9 months approximately)
