Same here. I always say I believe in my heart that if DS was vaxed, he would have had serious reactions, probably autism. The thing is that he has some things in common with the problems autistic kids have... poor digestion, yeast. He fights sleep with every fiber of his being ALL the time, and woke frequently for most of his life.... it's better now, but I wouldn't call his sleep behavior normal. He has a few signs of sensory integration disorder as well. A lot of repetitive play too, but I've been assured this is normal. Otherwise he is smarter and more verbal than any other 2 year old I've ever met and very loving and social. I'm tearfully thankful of this everyday because I honestly believe we dodged a bullet.
Perhaps it's just the "second brain" that is causing these behavioral problems... the gut that is. However, I do suspect mercury poisoning (Especially since I completely believe that autism is mercury poisoning. And if that is the case it stands to reason that there could be kids with lesser poisoning, but still effected in some way, digestively and neurologically).
I have now had all my fillings out by safe protocol by a holistic dentist. They were old and some were chipped. I have symptoms of mercury poisoning myself. As I think back, the poor digestion, buzzing anxiety and chronic insomnia started right when I got a lot of fillings all at once 10 years ago.
I remember the chips in my mouth after they were placed. I'm so very angry about this.
I've been doing a lot of research and will start chelation on myself once we completely wean in next few weeks (down to only one or no feeding per day). And then depending on how it goes, do chelation on him, very low dose and slowly.
I've ordered detailed hair tests for both of us to check if this is definately the issue. The whole thing is crazy and expensive too, but I hope it's the cure.
Mercury kills good bacteria in the gut as it is excreted (so I guess I'm REALLY glad that we have yeast problems b/c that means DS is getting rid of most of it instead of storing it in brain and other organs and suffering the consequences.)
Yeast and poor digestion is common when autistic kids go thru chelation and start excreting metals. The other interesting thing is that there is a type of eczema called the "mercury rash" that appears when metals are being pulled out too. The most common is the ankles, DS's last of his hot spots that still flare up on him. That is what got me thinking that it was too much of a coincidence here.
Sorry about the long answer to a post that wasn't even directed towards me!!
