Hello, My son was diagnosed at 1 year with a lead level of 20. The problem was residual dust from a renovation. We have fixed the problem, but I have been a mess ever since. After 5 months he is now at a level of 10. I have spoken to several parents who have been through this the turtle way, and sometimes it has taken a few years for the lead to come out. Their children have turned out well. I have never been in contact with a parent who has chelated his/her child. How does the child react -- what are the effects? The state does not recommend chelation -- they worry about the possible effects on the kidney and liver and describe it as potentially "repoisoning" the blood stream. My son tests normal to high developmentally in everything except language development. At 17 months he has no real words (though has his ways of communicating). I was put in touch with a naturopath who wants to chelate my son, yet I am wary. I don't want to do anything that could further damage my son. Does anyone have advice for me?

I also have hot and cold cycles that are present when the meniere's flares up and...
