End of Summer

Well, I haven't posted in a while. It has actually been a tough summer with Timmy. He had some major regression. Things we have not seen since before he went gluten/casein free. Examples are: worse tantrums, repetitive speech, stimmimg(hand flapping), repetitive movements and just down right odd behaviors. Well after trying to rule everything out like chlorine in swimming pool, crest toothpaste(we have always used natural with him) and possible gluten exposure. We finally found out what it was. In June after returning home from CT/NY we started to increase his oral chelation. Pfieffer Treatment Center http://www.hriptc.org/ recommended that after being on his zinc cream for about a month to increase his chelation. Well I waited 3 months. I wanted to wait till summer but I totally forgot that the reason for me to wait till summer is that there are side affects that take time to go away. Well, we found out that his zinc level is still too low to increase chelation. Chelation gets rid of normal minerals also, not just the toxic ones. So after about 2 weeks at the old chelation level he has improved. We still deal with tantrums, rigid and odd behaviors but now I am thankful for Timmy. Just when you think you can't go on another day, God gives you a glimpse of how bad things were and could really still be without all the biomedical intervention we have been doing. Here's a picture of him coming out of a time out.
