Is anyone's autistic child chelating nickel? We are in the process of chelating with the DMSA and ALA. We were expecting mercury to be removed, but a large quantity of nickel is chelating. Are there any other autistic persons chelating nickel in large quantities? We have had three urine tests so far and we are now going to be testing using the Doctor Data Inc. We did not run a base line for mercury, because I started by using cilantro for chelating and Jen started to show chelating behavior. I called her DAN doctor and he started her on the DMSA then we went to the DMSA and ALA.
Jen has made some improvement in eye contact, eye focusing, eye following, receptive language, expressive language and cognitive skills with the chelating. We have seen increased aggression. The teacher at school is also seeing improvement. She has also become very noisy. She seems very curious and is doing imaginary play at school.
If there is anyone out there in the same situation of chelating nickel … please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you sincerely,
Autistic girl … age 11 ¾ years
