Heavy Metal Mercury Poisoning – Chelation and the Link With Autism – Asperger’s and ADHD

Similarities Between Mercury Poisoning and Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and Sensory Integration Dysfunction

Mercury poisoning is thought to be one of the major biomedical causes of autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, sensory integration dysfunction and pervasive mental disorder. PDD development!

Mercury can affect the body in a variety of areas, including speech and motor processing, cognitive and social abilities, and create sensory abnormalities. Many of these symptoms are similar to those displayed in children on the autism spectrum or those with Asperger’s Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder PDD, Sensory Integration Dysfunction, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ADD/ ADHD.

The “mad hatters” syndrome was the direct result of mercury being used to harden felt when making a hat. Due to exposure to mercury, people who made hats often suffered from dementia, mental illness, or general confusion. New studies link heavy metal toxicity to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Symptoms of Mercury Poisoning

Social withdrawal and lack of eye contact or visual fixation

Anxiety and mood swings

Failure in speech development, articulation problems and echolalia (repetitive vocalizations)

Sound sensitivity

Abnormal tactile sensations or aversion to touch

Hypersensitivity to light

Repetitive beats or movements

Salivation or excessive drooling

Clumsiness and poor coordination

Difficulty sitting, walking, crawling

Sleeping troubles

Poor concentration / attention problems / ADHD symptoms

Skin rashes or eczema

Digestive problems / diarrhea and constipation

Where does mercury come from?


A form of mercury called thimerosal was present in several vaccines. According to the CDC “until 1999, vaccines given to infants to protect against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and hepatitis B contained thimerosal as a preservative. Today, according to the US Food and Drug Administration, the only vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years and younger that contain thimerosal are: one DTaP vaccine and three influenza vaccines. These four vaccines contain only traces of thimerosal. »

Vaccines don’t cause autism, but if the body’s detoxification system isn’t working properly, the person may have trouble expelling what would normally be considered harmless amounts. Because the body cannot properly expel these harmful toxins, they become lodged in the body and cause the symptoms listed above. This is part of the reason why it is essential not to vaccinate a child when he is sick, even if it is only a cold.

Mercury amalgam dental fillings

For dental care, avoid mercury fillings. It is simply safer to opt for composite fillings. Again, this may not be a problem for everyone, but for people with impaired detox systems, it can cause serious problems. The more fillings, the greater the risk due to the cumulative effect of toxins. Before starting chelation therapy, mercury amalgam fillings must be removed to prevent further exposure to mercury!


Unfortunately, our food supply is contaminated. Tuna, swordfish and sea bass are the fish most heavily contaminated with high levels of mercury. The website has an online calculator to help you determine the amount of mercury in your food.

Other sources of mercury

Damaged non-stick or aluminum cookware

Toxic air from coal-fired power plants

Lawn and Garden Pesticides


I ate tuna several times a week when I was pregnant and swordfish several times a month. The warnings that these large fish were generally high in mercury due to environmental pollution had only just emerged between my first and second child. I also received the flu vaccine as recommended when I was pregnant, which contains thimerosal or mercury. I’m sure these factors helped explain why my two children were discovered to have toxic levels of lead and mercury in their little bodies. The Happy Sun shows actual lab results before and after chelation therapy.

Chelation therapy

Chelation therapy is the process of removing heavy metals from the body by taking a drug, which attracts and binds mercury and helps excrete it from the body. There is medical controversy over the use of chelation therapy for the treatment of autism and ADD/ADHD issues, as it is considered an “off label” treatment. However, using botox for wrinkles is also an “off label” treatment because botox is designed to stop facial spasms and twitching. In essence, you are not treating autism or ADD/ADHD with chelation therapy, rather you are first testing the child to determine if heavy metal toxicity is an underlying issue and then using chelation therapy to treat heavy metal toxicity.
