Well, it’s a chelation weekend in the Lowhorn house. What does that mean exactly?
We found out in the spring that Sean did indeed have high levels of mercury as well as elevated levels of lead. Kelly and I really were not surprised, however, it was good to confirm with a test.
In addition to about five prescription medications, Sean is on many supplements and also uses a chelation cream every other weekend. This is called a “round” and we can get about three rounds out of one $115 bottle of DMSA chelation cream container.
From Friday after therapy until Monday morning before he goes back to therapy Sean has chelation cream applied every three hours. We rotate the spot of where we put it for it to be absorbed into his skin. It has to be applied an hour after and an hour before any sort of medication, supplement or vitamin. That’s the tricky part…oh and the middle of the night applications can be a little tricky too. 😉 He’s done about 7 or 8 rounds. We are anticipating continuing for a good year or two. Our biomedical doctor is hopeful that this will bring words back. I sure hope so.
He’s on quite a biomedical protocol right now. It’s pretty expensive and some months we struggle to swing it, but we find a way because we believe in it. Dr. V was the first doctor that really gave us hope and looked into what was going on on the inside and didn’t just try to medicate him with an anti-psych med. He was the first doctor to give us hope that we could truly help Sean. Unfortunately, he is closing his practice in October. We now also see Maria and BioEnergy Medical Center in Ann Arbor. She is amazing! Sean’s infection level is the best it has been since we first found out he had PANDAS.
We can’t stop now. In fact, we just started CBD oil with him and I think it’s going to be a really good addition to his protocol.
I hope to be able to share some positive and amazing posts soon. Please pray for our little guy!
