    I don't believe we have much information on Chelation Therapy.

    What is the claimed benefit in connection with Tourette Syndrome and what is the source of the claim?

    chelation therapy is VERY controversial when not being used for actual heavy metal poisoning and there have been no actual studies indicating its usefulness outside of that, just some anecdotal stuff, as far as I know.
    If you type "autism chelation therapy controversy" into Google, you'll get lots of info. I've never heard of ANY supposed benefit for TS. ????

    I've read that there are preliminary studies which indicate that Omega-3 may be helpful for depression, but as far as I know, no full-out studies have been completed yet, but I imagine they're in the works.

    No one knows for certain what causes autism, but one theory ? chelation? has ignited an intense debate. Now, one scientist wants to put that theory to the test. In a desperate quest for answers, he is using his scientific know-how to test the controversial therapy

    MSNBC and NBC News look at the issues surrounding autism the theories behind its dramatic increase and some of the treatments.

    Steve:

    It will be interesting what the findings will be. In some areas with spills, bad water due to chemical plants etc. higher rates of children have been born with Autism.

    The therapy that is being discussed I have never heard of for TS and as for Autism I would not be certain of the benefits.

    In Asheville NC there is a Doctor that has been using it for over 20 years to assist cancer patients in their recovery after being told they were terminal. I am not sure what they odds are with diet change or if his success rates have ever been published. A nurse friend of mine worked for him for many years.

    Interesting topic.
