This loan is past-due.
First Posted: September 3, 2009
Age: 4 years old
Location: Arizona, USA
Loan Sought: $315 [Changed from $1,000 on 10/27/09]
Loan Needed For: Zeolites for chelation ($120) and hair analysis + consultation ($195). [Changed on 10/27/09]
Note: After posting the original loan request for $1,000, Ayden's mom contacted Lend4Health saying that she had recently learned about zeolites for detoxification of heavy metals and chemicals. She wrote, "It is safer than chelation; the only side effects could be a headache & that's only if you don't drink enough water. Zeolites are from volcanic substances and it's honeycomb structure is negatively charged & attracts all toxins, captures them, & safely carries them out of the body. I've been researching different brands. A doctor told me Ayden would need to do it for about 3 months." As such, this loan request was changed from $1,000 to $315.
Repayment Terms: 18 months ($17.50/month)
Other Notes: Ayden's mom, Stephanie, writes, "Ayden was diagnosed with autism at three years old. He's been GF/CF [gluten-free/casein-free] for 1 year. He just saw a DAN! Dr. 4 months ago. He did a 6 hr. challenge test w/ oral DMSA, and the results show that Ayden has an elevated level of lead at 19. We need to do the organic acid test, as well as a red blood cell test, ASAP so we can treat the lead safely. We also found out he's allergic to wheat and soy. Since removing the soy he started talking in complete sentences! He loves tucks, cars, buses, trains, helicopters, and planes. He is very musically inclined and likes to paint. He also loves dogs, as you can see in his photo!"
