find an osteopath in your area and they will give you drops to remove the toxins. you can even mix them with juice or cocoa so they don't taste it. It's homeopathic and very safe. we did this for our daughter.

My son had the same problem as a toddler. Make sure you don't have loose or peeling paint in house, keep toys clean(especially those that are played with outside) I would get rid of those made in China. If your child has no dairy allergies be sure to get the dairy in milk,cheese,yogurt,etc. watch what the child puts ih their mouth you know toddlers chew on everything. and by all means consult your doctor and/or local health dept.

3:32 here:

we did the drops. The levels were expelled through her digestive and urine system. She did the drops for 3 months and the levels subsided considerably.

Also note that when there are heavy levels of metal of any kind in the body, my osteopath told me they tend to hang out around the thyroid gland which can create antibodies (hashimoto's disease) that think the thyoid is acting up when it's really a metal issue. Just something to consider if you see changes in his or her energy level, bms, changes with hair, or appetite. I just had my metal levels checked because I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease, don't have the results back yet. let me know if you have any questions about this kind of care, i'd be happy to help.

if the levels are high your doctor should have mentioned something called Chelation Therapy - sounds like 3:32 is talking about a form of this.

Has the whole family been checked? If it is something environmental in your area the health dept may need to become involved. But no one would know unless a number of people from the area got themselves tested.
