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."
