Chelation is perhaps the best know “alternative” therapy for Autism. Defeat Autism Now, an influential Autism advocacy group, calls the treatment “one of the most beneficial treatments for autism and related disorders.” Parents eagerly trade Chelation success stories on websites and chat rooms dedicated to the disorder. Chelation, as a treatment for autism and related disorders, has developed in response to the unproven supposition that Autism is tied to the accumulation of heavy metals, especially mercury, in the body. Treatment can vary considerably in its execution; forms include skin cream, pills, and even intravenous delivery of powerful medications designed to combat severe metal poisoning.
