This loan has been repaid in full!
First Posted On: August 11, 2009
Age: 10 years old
Location: Vermont, USA
Loan Sought: $520
Loan Needed For: Mindlinx probiotic (12 month supply, $300); HMD chelator ($178); and Source Naturals Attentive Child (6 month supply, $42).
Repayment Terms: One lump sum in March 2010.
Other Notes: Arthur's mom, Jenn, writes: "Arthur has come so far in the last year since starting biomedical treatments. He's off all pharmaceuticals except the ADHD medicine, which we want to try to eliminate this year. He's so much more social and outgoing since starting biomedical. He still loves dinosaurs but he's also started playing video games, and sleeping in (oh no here comes a preteen LOL)!!!
I would use this loan to buy a 12 month supply of the probiotic Mindlinx that his DAN! [Defeat Autism Now] doctor recommends, and a supply of the chelator he also recommends to start heavy metal detox. We would also like to try using the Source Natural vitamin formula for ADHD and see if we could get him off the final pharmaceutical medicine he's on."
Special Notes: Arthur received a Lend4Health loan last year (August 2008) when he had just started biomedical treatments. That loan was paid off in full, and the repayment was made early. Click HERE to read about Arthur's first loan request.
