I have promised to relay what Dr. Garry Gordon, MD has said in his book Detox with Oral Chelation about autism. This I will do now.
Please note first, that the book does not mainly deal with problems of children, but rather, mainly with coronary difficulties. Nevertheless, this appears to me to be a reputable and pioneering researcher and clinician and I thought my readers would want to know. Before I type in some quotations tonight, let me also type in the “Warning – Disclaimer” published on the title page verso. It seems to be necessary in today’s world that anyone passing along what might be considered controversial or cutting edge or natural remedies, medicine, or health related information must be careful not to get into trouble.

It is the logic of blogging that educated conversation should tend to increase in knowledge. Yes?
Here is the quote. Dr. Garry Gordon M.D. De-Tox with Oral Chelation c2009 Appendix D P. 215
“I have review extensive documentation, from Doctor’s Data involving over 10,000 data points from our autism protocol research. The children on that program always saw substantial improvement, even after all prior attempts had failed completely (or even made the child worse), no matter the age. Whether the patient is 5 years old or 20, the potential for favorable response to the program does not diminish, although, admittedly, the protocol for autism requires more detail that I am covering in this article. That protocol requires great attention to all details, as covered on my DVDs and in the books on autism that I have co-authored (please see www.gordonresearch.com).
The program that I have helped teach, and have written about extensively, has convinced me that there are genetic issue involving methylation  lin all autism children. I find those same genetic issues also contribute to many other chronic, neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, etc. These mutations impair the body’s ability to excrete heavy metals and control vial infection. These set the stage for lowered immunity,which then permits the infection we all carry to take off. Effective methylation is essential for effective detoxification as well as for infection control throughout life. A total program is necessary, take a few years to gradually but continuously achieve success.
The autistic children studied generally have also been shown to have live virus. Some of their viral load seems to be the same as the virus injected with their MMR vaccinations. These vaccinations for a time were being given with thimerosal – (an oganomercurial; i.e., mercury). Of course no one is doing routine genetic testing yet on all newborns, so no one knew that these children were genetically “at risk.” The environmental degradation that pollutes our environment with increasing mercury simply sets the stage for more children to be unable to handle the stress of vaccines. Although since much of the thimerosal has now been removed from those vaccines, there seems to be some decrease in the overall incidence of autism. However, environmental toxicity just increases. For instance, we have the new coal-burning power plants in India and China that may fill that “Void” and bring mercury levels back up to that time when all vaccines contained mercury.
The vaccines clearly have often been reported by parents to be the straw that pushed the child over the brink. Soon after vaccines, these children change; they lose speech. Many different infections are complicated the diagnosis and treatment of heavy metal poisoning; there are numerous infections documented to hold heavy metals. Study this by learning that Coxackie infections can hold 70 times too much cadmium in the infected tissues. This is a vital point about detoxification requiring concurrent treatment of the pathogen load if we hope to get at the critical heavy metals that are impairing function such as loss of speech in a child. These infections fool doctors into believing there are no more heavy metals to treat, leaving patient treated incompletely.
It is shocking but true that often the toughest children we have treated would have previously shown only very little or no mercury excretion p. 217 after IV DMPOS, with the well-meaning doctors who treated them. Sometimes doctors gave up and mistakenly informed th parents that there was no mercury in their autistic child. They conclude erroneously that any heavy metal detoxification with chelation would not help. I hope this article helps get the right information out to everyone.
That information was totally wrong. The total detoxification program we developed always increased excretion of heavy metals, and when this begins, we see substantial clinical improvement follow. We only need to use gentle oral EDTA, malic acid/and/or garlic, MSM, lipoic acid, etc. (i.e., ODP) as our primary oral treatment, and over time, we almost invariably star to find mercury released, or tin or antimony or cadmium or aluminum or lead. These metal were not coming up with previous use of IV chelators because of genetics and infection problems. There is always increased excretion of toxic metals seen with the correct program, sometimes more in feces than in urine.”
