Chelation Therapy for Autism
Children who suffer from autism are often diagnosed with high amounts of heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminium, arsenic, and cadmium in their bodies. Chelation therapy can be used to extract the heavy amounts of these metals from an autistic child’s body. These metals are responsible for obstructing neuron transmission thus, leading to a lot of developmental issues.
Chelation Therapy for Autism: This therapy is being used for many decades now and many children who had high heavy metal doses in their body have been safely treated, thereby giving a chance for reducing the traits of autism.
- A pile up of the metals in the body can worsen the health condition of a child. But with the use of chelation technique, these metals can be extracted safely and effectively out of the body which can improve the health condition or at least stop it from getting any worse.
- The chelation can either be oral or transdermal (excreting through the skin with the help of gels) where metals like Arsenic are removed from the body.
Diagnosis of Heavy Metals: The most commonly used resource for diagnosing the content of bodily heavy metals like Arsenic or Mercury is a chiropractor. The chiropractor test very effectively details the heavy metal content in a body.
- Also, post a chelation treatment, the progress of the treatment can be effectively tested by conducting resistance tests on certain parts of the body.
- Another technique to assess the content of heavy metals post treatment is tests of urine which need to be conducted every single hour in a day.
Challenges: The problem with metals like Arsenic or Mercury is their ability to lie deep within the brain regions. Due to this, they often offer a resistance during excretion.
- The resistance offered by the metals during excretion can lay a heavy load on the liver which could lead to issues with the digestive system. To overcome this problem, a diet consisting mostly of proteins and vegetables is recommended during the therapy.
- This chelation process can either be done orally or it can be intravenous. Some people may not be able to handle the intravenous technique and may have to stick to oral drops instead which take effect very slowly.
Chelation therapy for autism is a slow but effective process for improving brain function. One needs to be patient for the effects of the therapy to be felt.
