"We can't put these Chelation doctors out of business without your help."---FDA administrator Dr Stuart Nightingale in a speech to the AMA House of Delagates, Honolulu, 1984
"There are no known causes of autism and no known cure."---National Autistic Society (Daily Mail March 25, 2006) [See: Medical Charities]
Chelation has not only improved heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, arthritis, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, but also, Studies indicate a 50% reduction in the occurrence of cancer in individuals who have received EDTA! Chelation has been reported to improve asthma, emphysema, brain function, muscular coordination, Multiple Sclerosis and impotence Deadly Deception by Dr Willner
Furthermore, the reference given in this misrepresentation, (Brown 2006) [Brown MJ, Willis T, Omalu B, Leiker R. 2006. Deaths resulting from hypocalcemia after administration of edetate disodium: 2003-2005.Pediatrics. 118(2): e534-36], is for a wrongful death case where the wrong form of a different chelating agent, edetate disodium, was administered to the patient, and an unapproved administration procedure, push IV chelation, was used to deliver this chelating agent. In this case, the death was caused by medical negligence and not by chelation per se. Thus, the reality is that there is clinical evidence of the efficacy of the chelation therapy used by the Geiers and no evidence that the chelation therapy used by the Geiers has been occasional deaths. Key realities about autism, vaccines, vaccine-injury compensation, Thimerosal, and autism-related research----Gary S. Goldman, Ph.D & P.G. King PhD
Hair analysis reveals high levels of aluminum, which is also found in vaccines. "I think in later years we are going to look back at aluminum the way we are looking at mercury now," said Cave. "Aluminum is neurotoxic but is found in city water, cookware, cans, and foil. All of this can accumulate, and it is a very difficult metal to pull out of their systems....It is a slow, arduous process, but if I had to name one treatment that has had astounding results, it is pulling metals [through nutritional therapies]....The age group that seems to benefit the most is between two and seven. Between seven and 12 there is speech and social recovery, and after 12 there is an ability to reduce the rage usually seen. Metal is rage. When you pull the metal, the rage goes."  Vaccine Conference Exclusive Report By Lisa Reagan
In a study last year, we found that about 40 percent of the children that we looked at (out of a total of perhaps 120) showed marked improvement, particularly in the younger age group. In most of the ones that resolve, the children go from not having any speech or eye contact to complete dialogue with good eye contact. It's the two, three, and four year olds that resolve most quickly. Within about six to eight months time, they get to a point where you can't tell that they were ever autistic. It's amazing. The parents come into our office in tears; they'll fly across the country just to show the children to us. Balancing Biochemistry: An Interview with Stephanie Cave
Presently my colleague and I are treating over 1500 children with this
problem (autism). In the past five years we have seen
an incredible number of children recover from this devastating illness and take
their places beside their schoolmates and siblings. .....We
test all developmentally delayed children for the presence of heavy metals. Hair
is screened followed by a determination in urine after a challenge of an oral
chelator, DMSA (2,3 Dimercaptosuccinic). It is rare that we find any child with
a developmental problem who does not have increased levels of mercury in the
urine after a chelator challenge. An interesting phenomenon is that we are
finding many more lead intoxicated children than blood screen would indicate.
Lead amplifies the toxicity of ethyl mercury in the brain.
.....The abnormal findings that we see in autism involving the immune
system, GI tract, and central nervous system are also seen in mercury poisoning.
These include, but are not limited to changes in T lymphocytes, low levels of
glutathione, low sulfate levels, IgA deficiency, and the presence of myelin
basic protein antibodies in brain. The children are responding well to the use
of oral chelators and supplements, which take out heavy metals. We are measuring
levels in urine as we treat. The changes in the children are remarkable with
each dose of a chelator. This treatment may take months to complete, but the
chance for recovery is evident on a daily basis. Because mercury has such
far-reaching effects in the destruction of function in many systems of the body,
our treatment also involves nutritional repletion of cellular chemistry,
normalization of gastrointestinal bacterial balance, dietary programs, and
restoration of liver detoxification systems.
Our medical training did not adequately prepare us for this challenge. We learned little about testing for heavy metals and even less about treating. The word chelation is not in the vocabulary of most physicians. The few physicians who are treating these children are inundated with them in their practices. The good news is that they are responding well to the chelation treatment. The changes in neurological functioning are remarkable with each day of treatment.  AUTISM AND IMMUNIZATIONS by Stephanie F. Cave, M.S., M.D., F.A.A.F.P.
DMSA binds to the mercury and removes it from the body. It is approved by the FDA for lead detoxification. As it circulates through the body, metals attach to it and are then excreted in the urine. It pulls out mercury, aluminum, antimony, and arsenic. My colleague Amy Holmes did a study that showed that autistic babies had very little mercury in their hair, ten times less than normal children. This was at a time when we knew that the exposure was very high because of the vaccines that were given. A lot of people who were looking for high mercury in the hair of the autistic children didn't find it and thought that the theory was wrong--they assumed that mercury in the hair meant that there was mercury in the body. But in fact the mercury was being retained. We know it is there when we treat because we can measure the amounts excreted in the urine. Balancing Biochemistry: An Interview with Stephanie Cave
EDTA chelation therapy has brought relief to more than 93% of patients suffering from ischemic heart disease and it can help avoid bypass surgery in 85% of cases.30 When it is given according to established protocols not one serious side effect has been reported. In fact, thousands of anecdotal stories from patients and physicians support the effectiveness and safety of this relatively inexpensive treatment. Chelation Therapy: The Controversial Medical Marvel by Gary Null, Ph.D. and Luanne Pennesi, RN, BSN
Approximately 1/3 of the 400,000 angioplasty operations fail. Restenosis. (Chelation doctors have been pointing to this phenomenon for years and explaining the double standard: Neither angioplasty nor coronary by-pass were ever studied clinically before coming into widespread use, yet the safer Chelation therapy is "criticized" because conventional medicine claims that Chelation lacks appropriate studies.)
"Each year nearly 300,000 bypass surgeries and 250,000 angioplasties are performed in the United States. Furthermore, nearly twenty thousand deaths occur each year as a result of these procedures. In 1992, Nortin Hadler, MD, professor of Medicine at North Carolina School of Medicine, wrote that none of the 250,000 angioplasties performed the previous year could be justified and that only 3-5% of the 300,000 coronary artery bypass surgeries done the same year were actually indicated. Yet a cost comparison study prepared for the Great Lakes Association of Clinical Medicine in 1993 estimated that $10 billion was spent in 1991 on bypass surgery alone. We also know that there is as much as a 15% mortality rate for people over the age of 65 within the first year of the coronary surgery and an 85% reocclusion rate within the first sixteen months after the operation. This is a highly deadly operation that ultimately doesn't work that is very costly. Yet is it the most common surgery in America. This is more than a double standard; it is a completely separate medical ideology supported by the monies for those who practice it. It's time to consider that neither of these procedures do nothing to change the biochemistry behind the arterial degeneration nor do they even consider changes in lifestyle and nutrition to prevent further insult to the vessels. EDTA chelation therapy has brought relief to more than 93% of patients suffering from ischemic heart disease and it can help avoid bypass surgery in 85% of cases.30 When it is given according to established protocols not one serious side effect has been reported. In fact, thousands of anecdotal stories from patients and physicians support the effectiveness and safety of this relatively inexpensive treatment."---Chelation Therapy: The Controversial Medical Marvel by Gary Null, Ph.D. and Luanne Pennesi, RN, BSN
"Chelation has been used safely over 6 million times in over 400,000 patients in the US alone. Its success rate in improving blood flow in patients with clogged arteries is close to 82%."---Elmer Cranton, author of Bypassing Bypass.
"I routinely see reversal of underlying cardiovascular disease without the risk of expensive surgery."---J Frackelton, M.D."Bypass surgery, angioplasty,and even diagnostic angiograms are so over used that, in my opinion, it constitutes criminal behaviour by the cardiologists and surgeons involved. Well controlled scientific studies have shown bypass surgery simply doesn't work, except to relieve severe chest pain. Those who have the surgery didn't even have a trend of longevity benefit compared to those treated without it. Yet, each year hundreds of thousands cave into the obvious fear tactics used by agressive heart doctors and submit to the bypass operation"---Heart Surgery Does More Harm Than Good by Julian Whitaker, M.D.
"Even JAMA has said that 44% of bypass surgeries are of questionable necessity. In reality the number of unnecessary heart surgeries is far higher .The scientific evidence damning most (though not all) heart surgery is overwhelming Up to 4% die (from the operation) up to 5% may sustain long-lasting or permanent cerebral damage."---Heart Surgery Does More Harm Than Good by Julian Whitaker, M.D.
