Dr. McCandless:

I've seen your list of reasons for giving B-12 injections (elevated MMA, anemia, and metal poisoning-is that right?). Do you also give the injections for positive mylein basic protein antibodies from Dr. Singh and do you stick with the once per day injection if that or that and metals is the only reason for taking it. (Our son is not anemic and does not have elevated MMA). Thank you.

Tom :)

Dear Tom: Please see my last long reply to you about chelation. When I see elevated IgM myelin basic protein antibodies, I think mercury damage and/or autoimmune processes started by the live triple vaccine MMR which followed the early damaged immune sytem from the newborn Hep B. My feeling now is that if an active autoimmune process is present that is destroying myelin, Vit B12 which is essential for myelin production is always indicated, even if there are no clear lab markers that we usually look for. Actually, there is no way to measure B12 in the brain, so since it is non-toxic and most kids seem to benefit, if they are damaged and still autistic, at this moment (and my mind may change as I learn more) I say why not?
