Suggestion 1: Dr. Chez; PLEASE bring a child with autism to another pediatric neurologist (without disclosing your medical background) and suggest that his regression, seizures, or other problems were caused by vaccines and see if he will run the EEGs and documentation you say should be done. The moment any parent so much as suggests that a child's regression began, in several cases, quite literally the moment they started seizing on the day of the vaccine, the medical doctors immediately tell them that they're wrong. They refuse to report to VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Service, leaving us to do all the calls ourselves. Frequently they refuse to so much as see the child again, and I've seen one doctor order a family to leave his office immediately.
Suggestion 2: Watch a child you love start to lose even more of their functional abilities because they're drugged out of their minds on Risperdal or Abilify, the two drugs that are FDA approved to "treat" autism, or rather, to treat the aggression sometimes associated with autism. Watch them regress even more in their ability to communicate and even in toilet training, and then tell us how much you like these medications. Even better, watch them get Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome and nearly die (or die, as in one case I've seen in an adolescent) from the medication. There are literally HUNDREDS of people who die every year from NMS, as compared to the 2 deaths caused by doctors without much experience treating children with chelation, one an NT with lead poisoning, the other autistic, with the wrong chelating agent.
These are the "hopes" for medical management suggested by Dr. Chez. They are less than useful. On the other hand, having seen several children acheive functional communication, toilet training, and other abilities shortly after implementing the gluten/casein/soy free diet and the megadoses of vitamins he ridicules in this book as being "useless at best", I suggest throwing his book in the trash where it belongs and visiting a DAN! doctor. If nothing else, the treatments they suggest are NOT, as Dr. Chez suggests in his screed on chelation, likely to kill your child.
