I was inspired today.
A five year old autistic boy came in today bouncing around the room like he had 43 cups of some Starbuck's fuel.
It was tough taking a brief case history before I stepped out and spoke with the lead physician on staff about how to proceed with the boy's treatment.
We both knew from the history that the boy is loaded with mercury, gold and cyanide. These all came from his mother in utero. His mother worked as an engineer in a gold mine and was exposed to high high levels of mercury, cyanide and of course gold. Five years later, she got pregnant and brought a beautiful autistic boy into the world.
Now, knowing he needs to be treated by chelating heavy toxic metals, she made an appointment with us. She has also made appointments to undergo chelation as well - her second round in 20 years.
Bottom line is this:
There is research showing a direct link between mercury exposure and autism.
There is research showing a direct link between gliadin exposure and autism.
So what to do:
Visit a naturopathic doctor who specializes in environmental medicine or a MD who specializes in environmental medicine. There docs must understand the link between autism and mercury along with the link between autism and gliadin. If they do not, find another doctor who does.
I highly encourage you to read this incredible well thought-out autism treatment protocol paper written by the most respected docs:

There is hope. Your child will likely improve greatly using specific known protocols by trained physicians.
Autism is one of many growing conditions due to all the environmental hazards we face on our planet. If we are to limit the onslaught of chemicals, it must be known to Congress that chemical companies must be seriously controlled. This includes pesticides, herbicides, plastics and others.
As a future naturopathic physician - in June 2007 - I look forward to the day when my doors open and many patients walk out well. If you're not autistic but have numerous conditions which seem to baffle many physicians, you likely have an underlying environmental condition disrupting your system.
You can feel better.
You and your child will feel better.
