Dividing chelators

I am often asked to describe how to divide up chelator capsules into smaller doses. Over the years I’ve gotten pretty good at doing this without any special equipment, although I would like a capsule machine to hold them. I’ve just never gotten around to buying one because it seems like there is always something else we need. Plus, juggling capsules keeps my fine motor on target…lol

Some people buy empty capsules for this, I have always saved the capsules from other supplements I opened and dumped the powder out to be given in food or drink. For example: I open the adrenal cortex extract capsules and empty the powder into food for my son to take. When I’m done I put the empty capsule into a zip lock bag I keep in the cabinet.

Before you know it you have plenty of capsules for compounding chelators.

This is how I manage dividing doses of chelators:

Hope this helps some of the parents out there just learning how to do this or looking for an easy way to divide chelator capsules into smaller doses.

Geier’s New Evidence

I always make it a point to watch the Autism One presentations each year and I never miss one from the Geier’s!

I have read the Simpsonwood transcripts, the Aluminum Adjuvant conference transcripts so I know exactly what happened. I know that our kids were poisoned by vaccines and this was covered up. The most hurtful part of this is that they knew it in 1999 THREE years before my son was born. They covered it up.

He might not have ever had Autism if the issue were dealt with responsibly instead of people covering their own interests. That’s a hard fact to live with.

What hurts more is that it still continues today. Parents come to me in droves with newly diagnosed children. Mom’s have had flu vaccines while pregnant, their infants get them at 6 months of age…..it just continues.

I am truly grateful to researchers like Geier’s who continue to speak the truth regardless of any threads, pressures from anyone. They continue to push to stop this crime.

Any parent doubting the truth…..listen to the scientific evidence:

Updating The Edge of Autism

It’s been a while since I’ve posted but maintaining a website, two blogs, an internet forum, working from home, and homeschooling makes me one busy lady. I don’t mind but sometimes that means I don’t get out a great blog post I have in mind until I have a spare moment.

We’ve been plugging away albeit slowly at chelation. I was set back by another adrenal crash this spring and that hasn’t helped matters.  So I’m on a break from chelation for now but the kids continue on. I started noticing small changes in my son  with chelation again after a long period of not seeing anything. I think this makes this out 3rd stall period, I’ve lost track because all of us have gone through at least two of them.

But the cognitive gains in thinking, processing and organization are starting to come now. I’ve blogged about them on my other website. ( Mercury Babies ) These are amazing and give us hope that more good things are sure to come.  I would like to find some additional supports to address a few issues that seem to be flared up at the moment.  Some of which are sleeping problems and eating issues. He seems a lot more sensitive with foods than he was say 8 months ago. It certainly isn’t extreme compared to when he was an

infant but it seems to be he was eating a larger variety 8 months ago and now he isn’t. Same with not being able to sleep at night. He’s pretty keyed up about 11pm and well I’m not keyed up.  I need my sleep. We have a few things on the table that we are using to help address these. Adrenal support, thyroid support, milk thistle for liver, and zinc. (In addition to his multivitamin)  It seems like his oral sensory is just on hyper mode these days as he balks at things he used to take or eat. But….no one said autism was easy.

We will keep trying things, keep chelating and be grateful for all the wonderful gains we do have.  I think often times parents get caught up in looking for these “wow” magic moments with huge gains that simply are rare if they happen at all. You have to be willing to accept any gains you get even if they do not meet your expectations.
