1 Year Anniversary

I can't believe it's been a year since we started IV Chelation at Dr. Imam's office. Michael continues to do well. I would say 95% of the time we get the IV in his arm or hand on the first try. Michael sits well. The only thing that bothered him was the 4th bag would burn his arm alittle- so we backed down on it. This last week it didn't burn at all. The burning feeling is normal for this agent (phosphotidylcholine).

We got back both urine and blood tests for Michael last week. His urine toxic metal test showed that his level of aluminum is going down and his mercury is going up. Usually this is what you see. Mercury is a heavier metal and comes out after all of the other metals.

The blood work showed low Cholesterol (124), high B12 (we need to back off the powder) and low copper (I need to get a supplement for this). Michael has basically no saturated fats in his diet. The last two months he has tried some new foods. He eats 1 banana a day.
