C-973: A Chronicle on Lead Poisoning
Bobby was only 3 weeks old when he began having ear infections and later
required tubes in both ears At 9 months of age he was medically diagnosed
as having lead poisoning. For a year he was tested every two weeks but received
no treatment. At 18 months of age he was diagnosed as slightly retarded.
He was released from a treatment program because he was too hyperactive.
At 2-1/2 years of age, Ritalin was tried but his parents discontinued it
because they said, "it only doped him."
At 9 years of age he was diagnosed with seizures and placed on Dilantin.
His behavior pattern included banging his head on the walls, slapping himself
and emitting high pitched noises.
Bobby was 12 years old when referred to Kentuckiana's
outpatient clinic. An extensive multi-disciplinary
professional evaluation revealed spinal subluxations, severe visual acuity
disorder and toxic minerals. He received spinal adjustments and was enrolled
in special education classes provided at Kentuckiana.
After only 4 months of receiving spinal adjustments, a repeat EEG was done
which revealed no seizure activity so the medication was discontinued.
Bobby has loved Kentuckiana's special school; the staff and his classmates
are amazed at his uncanny ability to remember and calculate numbers. If you
tell him the year of your birth, he can tell you immediately without paper
and pencil, your age! Maybe we have an Einstein?
His parents have said, "We can't thank you enough for the help you have given
Bobby. We see improvement in him every day and it's because all of you have
shown such care and concern. He has come a long way in the past year and
we thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
