  QUESTION: Legal redress & other treatment options for young heavy metal-poisoned electrician, 31 May 2005, USA

EDTA Chelation removes lead quickly, my 27 year old electrician son has been diagnosed with lead and some other heavy metal poisoning. He had stomach sensitivity, a chronic fatigue and generally feels ill with lots of symptoms including a pancreas that is not working properly because of heavy metal poisoning.

His IV Treatment at Your health in Camberwell Melbourne is working well. But where can he get this treatment in Brisbane where he lives?

Also is there better treatment regimes, what is the best?

Is there a solicitor willing to take up his case against his previous employer?

ANSWER: 01 Jun 2005

Dear Trevor,

thanks for your email. Was it an accident that you put "Permission for Question: No"? Because we can't web-publish just your name or email without the question (though we can web-publish just the question and remove the name or name and email). Please let me know if it's ok for us to web-publish the text of your email.

In terms of legal redress for your son, he should be eligible for at least one free session at the local community legal centre (he should take all his documentation to the session) where they will give an opinion as to the worth of pursuing the case legally and will hopefully also provide some referrals to solicitors. I only know of the famous ones like Slater and Gordon (PH: 1800 555 777, WEB: www.slatergordon.com.au).

I'm surprised that YourHealth Camberwell has not advised your son of the existence of YourHealth Carina (PH: 33952455 FAX: 33952855 EMAIL: [email protected] WEB: www.yourhealth.com.au) who I believe offer similar services.

As to other treatment options, you may be interested in the options available from High Tech Health and you can contact them regarding a local health provider who uses their, for instance Far Infra Red Sauna for treatment of heavy metal poisoning (PH: 1800 505 108 EMAIL: info(AT)hightechhealth(DOT)com(DOT)au WEB: www.hightechhealth.com.au). It seems from where I sit (having spoken to hundreds of people going through the process of finding treatment for lead poisoning) that the best thing to do is to locate a health provider in your son's area that your son trusts and then to go along with the treatment regime that is offered. The key to recovery seems to be in the practitioner's knowledge and experience. Naturally the patient has a vital role to play too in terms of eating well, taking any supplements that are recommended, exercising appropriately and ensuring minimal exposure to heavy metals (eg stopping smoking).

I hope this is helpful and wish you and your son the best. He's lucky to have his dad looking out for him.

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien, mother of lead poisoned children.
