Finally got results backOur hair tests were lost in Katrina for three weeks...
DS showing high aluminum, antimony, arsenic, bismuth, mercury and titanium.
The 3 "a's" and the mercury being most significant. I didn't think Titanium is supposed to do anything but it's off the charts. Normal is 1, he is 44.
He hasn't been eating paint or paper that I know of. He uses sunscreen with it but not really that much, only a few days a week and not even all over whole body, I believe in sunshine. This could mean that he clearly has a problem excreting heavy metals. He does meet one "counting rule", the test that Andrew Cutler developed for mercury toxicity www.noamalgam.com
He is low in calcium
I have a lot of reading to do.
My test was much less dramatic. Arsenic and Bismuth only high metals. I met no counting rules, although my essential minerals could be considered abnormal. I'm low in calcium as well. And molybdenum and selenium, two minerals which are important for metal detox.
I found it very odd that I was low for mercury. Given the fact that the test was done at end of July and I had all my fillings out in May and June. I guess that could mean the safety protocol at www.iaomt.org that my dentist used really works. Or I'm messed up and just storing all the mercury.
I'm scared for DS. I was really expecting me to clearly need chelation b/c all those freakin' fillings. I'm prepared to do it for myself. But it seems like he's the one that really needs it, that's going to be very much harder.
I mean, I figured he wouldn't be so bad since he has no developmental delays, talks like a 3 year old and is so loving. But there really is further reason for his sleep disorder and his poor digestion. I guess we found our cause. Moving metals kills your digestion. I should be happy he's moving them, ASD kids show low metals b/c they store them all.
