For anyone who has children having issues with early puberty you may look into heavy metals being a culprit. Heavy metals are everywhere and accumulate in the body. They are known to effect the brain and other important organs of the body in all kinds of ways. They are infamous for disrupting the endocrine system (the system that controls hormones) and could cause issues with growth and puberty. Children are extra susceptible to heavy metals as their bodies are smaller and their organs are still growing and developing.
The process of removing heavy metals stored in the body is called chelation therapy. This can be very effective in getting rid of the metals and in correcting conditions caused by them. BE VERY CAREFUL though to research well before you start chelation as it can be dangerous if done improperly and you can end up releasing more metals from the body tissues than the body is able to eliminate at once thus causing the metals to recirculate and settle back into the tissues causing further poisoning and damage. This usually happens when people try to chelate too quickly.
The safest way to chelate is with low doses of chelates and very SLOWLY! There are many nutritional supplements that can be beneficial in the process too. The best place to start is by looking up Andy Cutler and his low and slow Chelation protocol. He is a scientist who was himself poisoned by metals and has wrote much information on the subject and the SAFEST way to chelate. A google search for him will bring up much information and their is a very supportive yahoo group too. I hope this information is helpful to families looking for answers.
Does anyone have any recommendations for boys? My son is 8 and his pediatrician wants to conduct an X-ray of his wrist. After further research, I am going to recommend a MRI or ultrasound to avoid the radiation. My son also has headaches from time to time and his ear and / or finger will get hot deform time to time. I'm wondering if this could all be related so I am also requesting a complete blood panel to include iron, vitamin D, thyroid, etc. We eat organic Edith the exception of his school lunch and occasionally ordering out. Any advice on diet, supplements and additional topics to discuss with his doctor would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I was horified when my daughter started developing breast buds at 7 years old. I took her to her peditrician and she recommended an ORGANIC DIET to slow down the process. Organic milk products and organic meat (especially chicken), avoid all fast food, and avoid lavender and tea tree oil products, and tofu (unless organic). I started this immediately and within 6 months, the breast buds went away. This seems to be slowing down the process, although it won't make it stop completely.
Should point out that Japan has the highest consumption of Soya Beans / Soy related products and they don't have any historical data indicating early onset of puberty.
What is anyone doing.... I have an 11year old son in early puberty who is short and his pediatric endo wants him to go on Lupron. Not sure what to do or if I want him on this drug. Any advice??!!
I found your site as I was looking to try and find natural ways to help slow down my 10 year old son's precocious puberty. He has a cyst on the pineal gland, is very short and is developmentally delayed. The doctor wants to do lupron shots but we are against it. Do you have any ideas for us or articles to read? Thanks so much, Julie
I have read (don't remember what in or how long ago) that fluorescent lights cause early puberty. I haven't read anything to refute it since, but since our culture is working on saving electricity by going all fluorescent, we may observe for ourselves whether early puberty gets more rampant, as our old light bulbs disappear.
I also remember reading something more recent blaming dizziness or loss of equilibrium on fluorescent lighting. Haven't seen anyone refuting it either.
Please help!! My doctor has suggested medication for my young daughters high hormone levels and accelerated bone growth. We changed her diet, environment, etc. but nothing has worked so far - looking for more alternative advice. Also, has anyone actually experienced stopping this naturally??
My 9.5 year old daughter is showing signs of premature puberty wanted to find some natural herbs for slowing it down.

My daughter, who is now 11 years old, started developing breasts and eventually getting a menstrual period, I also noticed mood swings and body odor. Her pediatrician prescribed hormone therapy which I refused because I wanted to get to the bottom of the cause. after several hours and days of researching and reading I did what I could with the resources I had at the time.
This is what I did
-Switched to organic milk(grass fed is best)
-Switched to animal protein with no added antibiotics or growth hormones
-No fast food(I made my own "fast food")
-Whole foods and spices(No MSG, No artificial ingredients)
-Switched to natural body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, body wash.
-Switched to Fluoride-free toothpaste
-No body sprays, perfumes
-Switched to Essential oil based cleaning products and to natural alternative cleaning sprays from the local grocery store and natural laundry detergent.
-No febreeze, glade, airwick are fresheners(I used essential oils and baking soda as an air freshener)
