Glad to hear you've improved somewhat.

Beware of using lipoic acid infrequently, especially if you have silver-mercury Amalgam fillings. These are some of the adverse reactions I've come across in the detox groups.

Inappropriate use of ALA. Sometimes it takes a while for the effects of inappropriate use of chelators to be obvious to adults, let alone autistic kids. These are some examples from adults, some of whom actually had gains in some areas initially but then realized damage was being done, usually to the brain as Hg levels likely increased.

Dr Dan Pompa once said someone who worked for him had "god awful" symptom from taking ALA with some Amalgam remaining. He says it sometimes takes months for the symptoms to build before the person realizes the connection.

I saw it happen to a friend. She had "burning" hands feet and brain. She was an emotional wreck and could not think straight. Thankfully after a year or so of Cutler protocol detox she gradually recovered from it.

The mice in the Gregus study excreted more Hg than control mice but ended up with more Hg in the brain and organs. A Cutler comments.

-300mg ALA 2x/day while I still had amalgams....from really-sick-but-functioning to completely disabled, in just 6 months
- KellyB. "...took 50 mg of ALA once per day for months...while I had Amalgams in, during the removal process, and even after they were removed....I have suffered tremendously because of this. My health deteriorated rapidly - MCS, extreme food intolerances , depression, anxiety, etc."
- 100 mg ALA in a multivitamin for 10 days. "...caused me to feel anxious, weak, fatigue. My head is held captive to these heavy metals. I want my own brain back so I can think and function..."
- 20mg ALA in the weeks after Amalgam removal. "...has given me the worst severe burning brain for 2 days straight, along with extreme burning muscle pain and weakness all over."
-R-Lipoate w/ hidden amalgam //
...I took close to 200 different powerful herbs, and nutraceuticals including R-lipoate. It was at the end of that 5 month period, that I begin to get severe jaw pain around the rotten tooth ( the one that I did not know had an Amalgam in it). It was around this time that I essentially had chronic fatigue and anterograde amnesia set in. It was a profound, rapid, failure of my health, I went from ...going to college full time, to just being debilitated.
- ALA 600 mg 3x a day + NAC 1200mg x 2 a day. "... have severe ringing in my ears, brain fog, funny taste in mouth , headaches, blurred vision, memory problems and having difficulty functioning...stopped 8 days ago ...but it did not go away-- also head aches..."
-200mg in B Complex w/ amalgam present. "I had daily headaches.... I had the weirdest tingling sensation in my face going EXACTLY from the tooth ... up into my cheekbone."
-ALA 300mg. Teen in psych hospital w/ suicidal thoughts. Cutler comments on how the inappropriate use might be causing or contributing to the problem.
-300 mg ALA, 2x/day. "...improvements in peripheral neuropathy ...then developed worse neurological symptoms…”
-I know a guy at work who has gotten nice improvement in his neuropathy from inappropriate use of ALA; however he looks really foggy and whifty even though he is obviously well educated. He reminds me of my foggy brain before I started to chelate. This is doubly sad because he has a high-level autistic young adult son. The boy would likely benefit from appropriate use of ALA and the boy needs his aging father to be sharp and healthy to help him heal!
