Autistic son Chelation Abuse

If you are a parent of an autistic child and you are researching chelation than I hope you take the to time to read this blurb.

Today I write about Chelation Abuse.  In the late 90’s I did not even know what Autism was and went to the internet to research how to rescue.  As I research I was driven by fear and that itself was my first mistake which lead us into a mess.

The first thing I learned from the internet in the late 90’s was a clean diet such as the gluten/dairy free diet can help.  I was good with that.  Over time, one thing lead to another and we are lead to a medical treatment that includes chelation.  I was convinced at that time that my child was sick and there was this window opportunity that we needed to act on before it was too late.

My son went through chelation abuse for years.  Multiple times after chelation my son held his head crying, sweating, holding his hands to both sides of his head in pain.  There was also so many days of painful diarrhea.  The doctor response said that this reaction is temporary and sometimes you will experience regression before you see improvements.  You may wonder why was this type of treatment tolerated?  We were in a mess and could write a book on it because it was mess that ethically was wrong on so many levels!  But right now just want to focus on chelation.

Today there is currently a new hype about the VAXXED movie and looks like Generation Rescue is taking advantage of this moment to lead people to their site to set up you with a rescue angel.  I just want to share that one of the doctors that is labeled “Generation Rescue Recommended” was a doctor that was ok chelating my son for years and realized later it was abuse.

Below is links about chelation. The first site is off the State of Oregon government which made possible after reporting our experience to the Oregon Medical Board.

The second site is good information from Chelation Watch which is the site that helped me get out of our mess.

We don’t need a rescue angel for my son.  He is an angel that has touched our family in ways making us better people.  It showed us that our heavenly father can make any complicated mess into a blessing in disguise. Hopefully our story will help others to avoid the long suffering we experienced.  I don’t want sympathy and believe things happen for a reason.

Have a wonderful day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cousins Love!

 

Your own kids are such a gift and blessing!  The unconditional love is priceless between Victor and his cousins! He has so much fun hanging out with Janie, playing the imaginary band with Melissa and steeling Jessica’s sunglasses. Cousins are great to have.

 

Montana Hike! Throw back

What a day this was! In August 2013, my two sons and I join family to hike on top of Mt Haggin, elevation of 10,600!  I have a great fear of Heights and my legs were very wobbly!  My brother Ed in the very back, the next row my son Jared in the green shirt, Victor in the blue whom was very relaxed, Jessica in the green, Rodney on the right and me in the front smiling in pain. It was all worth it, hiking in remembrance of my nephew and the view was heavenly!  Montana is beautiful!

Gluten Free Cookies!

We did discover that gluten free diet helped my autistic son and myself.  In this picture we were enjoying our gluten free chocolate chip cookies!  Eating half the bag of them was probably not the smartest thing to do! Yum they were good!

 

Victory for Victor

This is Victor my 20 year old son.  It has taken many years for my family and I to feel this much peace after many years of battle.  It has been over a year now since he has been taken off of his 20-30 supplements regimen and his mind clearer, happier and more spontaneous language coming out.  You are more than welcomed to email me suzyjcombs@msn.com  if you are researching medical treatments for autism.

Victory for Victor because the state of Washington health officials halt his medical treatments.  The link to that story is below.  I don’t have to worry about my son being abused anymore!  My son received numerous chelation by IV with the provoking agent DMPS.  He became very sweaty holding his head in pain screaming.  The doctors response was sometimes regression appears before improvement.  My son also reacted with secretin in a horrible way and the doctor had the nerve to ask to try it again in smaller doses.  This needs to be more exposed to the public and media to educate others.

This is a post to let you know we are doing well now.  My son and I have regular visitations and Skype to each other every Sunday night.  So life is good!

Victor and his brother Jared.  They rock in my world.  They are both born on the same day exactly one year apart.
