    Default Andy Cutler's low dose chelation

    I recently came across this talking to the mom of one of the kids at DS' speech therapy. I was wondering if anyone on this board has heard of Andy Cutler's protocol for chelation. It would interesting to hear what ppl here think of it and if anyone has tried it for themselves or their DC.

    My thoughts?

    I'll defer to the FDA on this- FDA issues warnings to marketers of unapproved ‘chelation’ products

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today warned eight companies that their over-the-counter (OTC) chelation products are unapproved drugs and devices and that it is a violation of federal law to make unproven claims about these products. There are no FDA-approved OTC chelation products.
    There is absolutely no way I would ever expose my DC to chelation.

    Since one just does not simply walk into Mordor, I say we form a conga line and dance our way in.
    Excuse me, are you in a play​?

    I agree. While it is so seductive to believe there's a magic bullet out there, I don't believe there is.

    I don't know this particular chelation therapy but chelation for lead poisoning for example is only done at the very highest levels of poisoning b/c otherwise the cure is worse than the disease - - and even at the highest levels data is emerging that it may not be as helpful as doctors had originally thought. Chelation as I understand it is not highly selective, it leaches out the good with the bad and can cause developmental and physiological harm as a result. I also asked one of our physicians about an "alternative chelation" that a friend's child was doing and she looked at the formula for us and told us there was a heavy metal IN the particular chelation.
