Interview with Andy Cutler

 

How many children do you know of personally who have recovered by your definition of not needing a diet. not needing supplements being totally normal?  How many children do you know of?  -Thailia

I interpret “personally know of” very differently than doctors do.  I don’t just take the word or some doctor.  I only believe if I met them in person or if I talked to a lot of people over a lot of years who are observing them.  So from that much more limited stand point where I could testify, yes this is true, I know of dozens.  There are probably many hundreds or even a couple of thousand.  I know of many, many hundreds who are dramatically improved but they do need some ongoing support and probably the number is much more than that.  -Andy

9 Questions That Stump Every

Pro-Vaccine Advocate and Their Claims

Lire en Français

Since the flu pandemic was declared, there have been several so-called “vaccine experts” coming out of the wood work attempting to justify the effectiveness of vaccines. All of them parrot the same ridiculous historical and pseudoscientific perspectives of vaccinations which are easily squelched with the following 9 questions.

Claim: The study of vaccines, their historical record of achievements, effectiveness, safety and mechanism in humans are well understood and proven in scientific and medical circles.

Fact: The claim is completely false.

1. What to ask: Could you please provide one double-blind, placebo-controlled study that can prove the safety and effectiveness of vaccines?

2. What to ask: Could you please provide scientific evidence on ANY study which can confirm the long-term safety and effectiveness of vaccines?

3. What to ask: Could you please provide scientific evidence which can prove that disease reduction in any part of the world, at any point in history was attributable to inoculation of populations?

4. What to ask: Could you please explain how the safety and mechanism of vaccines in the human body are scientifically proven if their pharmacokinetics (the study of bodily absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of ingredients) are never examined

or analyzed in any vaccine study?

Just say NO to EDTA

 

There are many Docs out there who still use EDTA to chelate autistic children.  If you find yourself with a doctor who is recommending this type of chelation you should certainly run in the other direction.

There are many different methods of chelation being promoted today and we must be vigilant in choosing what is safe for our children.

There is a lot of hype in the media about the dangers of chelation therapy.  They regularly accuse chelation as dangerous, saying it has killed one child already.  They are correct.  IV EDTA has in fact killed a child.  A young boy died tragically and unnecessarily by improper use of a form of EDTA.

EDTA binds to other needed minerals as well as to heavy metals depleting the body of necessary nutrients.  What happened to this boy was a tragedy as the wrong medicine was administered.  CaEDTA is EDTA bound with calcium so that when it is administered it doesn’t deplete the bodies calcium levels. This boy was mistakenly given sodium EDTA instead of CaEDTA.  It was given in a high dose through and IV and the rapid excretion of Calcium caused him to suffer a cardiac arrest and die.  We feel very sad for this family just as we feel sad for the many children who have been injured by iatrogenic (doctor caused) means.

Unfortunately the negatives of EDTA do not stop by simply using the correct med (caEDTA) as those chelation docs would suggest.  There is a second insult which this medicine causes in our children.  Research by Boyd Haley has demonstrated that when used in the presence of mercury toxicity the EDTA binds with the mercury forming HgEDTA.  This substance has been shown to interact with brain tubulin (a neuroprotein) and increases the damage caused by mercury.

While EDTA is an effective treatment for cardiovascular plaques and is effective at removing lead, it should not be used in Autistic children (DMSA is an alternative chelator of lead and can be safely used orally).  For cardiovascluar patients who wish to pursue EDTA treatment it should only be used when preceded by safe mercury detox (using ALA) to clear mercury from fatty tissues including the brain.

Ancestry of pink disease (caused by mercury) identified as a risk factor for autism spectrum disorders.

Pink disease (infantile acrodynia) was especially prevalent in the first half of the 20th century. Primarily attributed to exposure to mercury (Hg) commonly found in teething powders, the condition was developed by approximately 1 in 500 exposed children.

The differential risk factor was identified as an idiosyncratic sensitivity to Hg. Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have also been postulated to be produced by Hg. Analogous to the pink disease experience, Hg exposure is widespread yet only a fraction of exposed children develop an ASD, suggesting sensitivity to Hg may also be present in children with an ASD. The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that individuals with a known hypersensitivity to Hg (pink disease survivors) may be more likely to have descendants with an ASD.

Five hundred and twenty-two participants who had previously been diagnosed with pink disease completed a survey on the health outcomes of their descendants. The prevalence rates of ASD and a variety of other clinical conditions diagnosed in childhood (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, Fragile X syndrome, and Down syndrome) were compared to well-established general population prevalence rates.

The results showed the prevalence rate of ASD among the grandchildren of pink disease survivors (1 in 22) to be significantly higher than the comparable general population prevalence rate (1 in 160).

The results support the hypothesis that Hg sensitivity may be a heritable/genetic risk factor for ASD.

Mercury Toxicity: What to do about it.

In the book Amalgam Illness by Andrew Hall Cutler the author has an excellent explanation on why ALA chelation is the only safe, effective means to remove mercury from the Brain and CNS.

In short: metalic mercury, organic mercury, methylmercury and ethylmercury are all processes by the body and can then be transformed into inorganic mercury.

When this happens in the brain and CNS the inorganic mercury is trapped.  The body has no mechanism for getting it out past the Blood Brain Barrier.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is the only safe and effective chelator that we currently have available to us which can cross the blood brain barrier and remove inorganic mercury from the brain.

Mercury has the potential to cause many of the same behavioral symptoms seen in children with Autsim.  If mercury is the root cause for the behavior and physical symptoms the person is suffering from, then appropriate, safe chelation has the potential to recover the person from the ailments they are experiencing.

In my opinion since ALA is a wonderful Antioxident when not in the presance of heavy metals and has the potential to offer relief if the symptoms are caused by metals it only makes sense to give it a whirl.  See Safe Chelation for details.

Tip:  Since calcium apposes leads absorption and storage (especially bone stores) getting adequate calcium is especially important for growing children.  Raw milk, cheese, and yogurt as well as quality calcium supplements and bone broths are excellent sources of calcium.
