Chelation officially started!!

Okay, Dr. Sloan has given us the go ahead!! We are ready to chelate. Will's heavy metal test showed that he has excessive amounts of the following heavy metals in his body: Antimony, Bismuth, Copper, Lead, Nickel, Thallium, and Tungsten. It is possible that he has other metals that are going to be harder to get out of his system so we will know that at a later date.
We are starting with Metal Free a product by Body Health and he will take that for a few weeks and then we will add DMSA- Dimercaptosuccinic Acid and he will take those pills 5 days on 5 days off.
Dr Sloan has chelated many children and has much success with the method that he uses. With IV chelation (Which many parents prefer), you sometimes see a regression before any improvement and honestly I don't think Kevin or I could handle that emotionally right now. You have to try remain hopeful to get through all the work it takes to heal your child, although we do have our days where we wonder 'Why Will?', Why did our sweet baby have to have this disorder. Truly tests your faith (that is an entire different post-not for right now). But we have much faith in Dr. Sloan and will try everything we can to help him improve. Dr. Sloan says we are way ahead of the curve right now and that is very reassuring!!
So, chelation is started as of today and I will keep you updated on the progress it brings!!
