I'm in the midst of a bitter divorce from my wife Karen. Karen has fought me for the last nine years over the treatments I have used to help my son Sam improve tremendously from the nightmarish condition that used to be his existence. She has never bothered reading anything to learn the facts about how chelation cures autism.
I called Dr Lynn Durand of Concord, NH and asked him to confirm his prescription that he gave me to chelate my son. I needed Dr Durand's statement to let a court know that chelation was necessary for Sam to continue to improve from his autism and have a chance to have a normal life. I needed that statement because my wife, if she gains custody of Sam, refuses to continue the chelation. Dr Durand told me he would not get involved and refused to state that chelation is the proper treatment for autism. Without an MD to tell that to a court, my wife will be able to continue refusing to give the treatment and I will not be allowed to chelate Sam and finish the job I started six years ago to cure him.
In 2006, Dr Durand prescribed methyl B-12 for Sam in the hope that it would allow Sam to speak. After only three doses of the nasal Methyl B-12, my wife decided that it was having a bad affect on Sam (it wasn't) and she grabbed the bottle, ran out of the house with it and hid it at her sister's house to prevent me from giving it to Sam. I asked her to call Dr Durand and see what he said about her concerns but she refused. She wouldn't bother calling the doctor and I had no way to force my wife to allow me to give it to Sam so that he could speak. Sam still can't speak four years later and my wife still refuses to give him the medicine that might allow Sam to speak.
I also asked Dr Durand to provide me with a statement to tell the court how methyl B-12 allows a significant number of children to acquire speech. He refused. I called him a "bastard" and hung up.
People need to be aware that Dr Durand is a complete asshole who will not make simple, general statements that he agrees with by virtue of the fact that he prescribed these treatments to help severely autistic children when people really need his help. My son, Sam will now remain non-verbal and will never recover from autism because Dr Lynn Durand will not simply tell the truth.
As an ex-patient of Dr Lynn Durand, I advise anyone who is considering having him treat their autistic child to find someone else.
If anyone reading this knows an MD who will provide a statement to a court that simply states that chelation is the proper treatment for autism and that it is medically necessary for Sam, I would appreciate it.
