Let me preface this by saying IV Chelation is not for everyone! After exhausting other forms of heavy metal detox in 3+years such as oral chelation through; ALA,DMSA,ALA+DMSA,Chlorella,Vitamin,Epsom Salt, etc with the much research and consultation with our MAPS doctor we have decided it is time to try IV. We have been assured there has never been any regression in his clinic. He recovered his own boy on this treatment and we are truly hoping to get somewhere with this form of detox.

|12/12/2018||1||This was our first treatment. Finn sqirmed at first and fought but after few momtns and with Ipad he calmed and was very good the doctor said. Better than most! We didn’t notice too much other than happiness all day. We started collection for Challenge Test. We have a Monday pickup and will wait for lab results to see if there is metals present in urine. About 3-4 weeks time of his next treatment. We will do every 3 weeks. We will apply GSH trandermal once it comes in. We are giving minerals today, tomorrow, then every other day to make up for any depletion for chelation. We will also eventually add suppositiores in between if needed. Seek IBK group for more details if needed. HBOT can help mop more and sqeeze out more metals after if needed in future.||1000 mg|
|12/13/2018||Second day, Finn has been pooping and peein non-stop.Hopefully this is helping move things along. He is very happy, a bit silly but in a good way. Pretty attentive, not regressive. To me, teeth grinding is a little less, vocal stimming just as bad.|
|2/9/2018||2||We got Finn’s tests back and he excreted lots of lead! We knew it! Results
Speech – Many more attempts, new sounds, better formed, unprompted.
Imaginative play – Playing with armatures making them clap, rescue quad guys making them walk and bounce, feeding peppa pig, playing hide and go seek with stuffed animals, putting puzzle pieces on head.
Tolerance Ex: I showed him how a magnifying sheet worked over his art, he would never not even for a second allow this. Using big boy potty at home now.
Awareness – Following me around in store, without being in cart now!
Attention Span Increase – Being engaged long enough to look at book, do songs, and play a few games (match, hide seek toys).
Character – He does a funny laugh when silly (hahaha and shakes head). He toggles light switch on/off for fun. He jumps out of bed and then I tell him to get back in and he covers head with blanket peering out. When we tell him to go to bed when he is still making noise, he waves us out and says “bye bye” for us to leave lol.
Eye Contact: Something changed in his eyes when he looks at us at times it just feels different and more connected.
Stimming: Vocal stimming is the same, but teeth grinding has decreased about 50%.
|3/4/2018||3||Check date: Lot’s of good things! Finn is really trying to use his words to communicate unscripted. He is answering yes and no questions (more with head shake but still). He is playing more imaginative with his figurines. We took Ipad away completely b/c of some melt downs! He is now being silly! Little charter coming out. he fake giggles and imitates you when you sneeze. He really stretches around to make eye contact with you when he wants something. he smooches up when he wants something too. Kissing us… He repeated I love you, thank you, etc, of course not clear but he thinks he is saying it and we get it. Were ready to get back to speech therapy. He is sitting better for books. He danced with me with the music the other day, putting arms on hips and shaking. He is doing much better following head, shoulders, knees toes, and quicker.|
|3/29/2018||1||DMSA: Took it real well. We havent had ipad since last time so he sat very nicely with it. Dr Oswari said to do oral not iv but we went with board who agreed iv is fine. Finn is still not sleeping well since daylight savings. Should up berberine and yeast controls, keep mag on feet maybe daytime too.|
|4/4/14||I guess Finn didn’t want to go out this morning because he hopped up from the table when I was in kitchen and ran into bathroom. I asked him if he had to go potty, which he has been very good with answering yes to lately! But he ran into his playroom. I could immediately tell the bathrug had been moved and when I went to straighten it out I noticed a huge lump. Underneath it was his shoes and socks he so cleverly hid from view haha!
He sang a little at B.Good today, old mcdonald with think as he rocked and smiled.
He started playing a game with the fridge icemaker. He slowly puts his hand under and hit the tab to pour ice out then quickly removes his arm then looks at me lol! I can call him from other room for dinner and he comes! One call, not seeing me at all!Slammed door in my face while staring at me so he could color lol…
|4/24/14||3 years of ultra strict diet due to allergens and sensitivities, after consulting with doctor we decided to cave and have our first family meal out. While we’re aware of possible cross contamination, ultimately we decided he needed the experience. Finn had a gfcf pizza and he LOVED it!!!SO happy I criedThe day after he found the dexterity to start opening doors. He said trampoline too. Potty standing up and he is now turning on light and going by himself without anyone in room!|
