Supplement Alternatives for CP
Hi Ted, I'm going to follow your protocol for CP remedies. Just wanted to know: 1) what other alternatives can be used instead of potassium citrate and sodium citrate and 2) can lithium orotate be used instead of lithium carbonate?
Potassium bicarbonate can be a substitute for potassium citrate, and sodium bicarbonate can be a substitute for sodium citrate. Also lithium oratate might be used instead of lithium carbonate.
Understand that cerebral palsy can be due to circulatory issues, infected cerebral system due to virus (mostly) or bacteria, or could be caused by accidents too. You can trace the cause simply that during pregnancy did the mother have infections, or take medications, or have a premature childbirth. Once you know the history then we should know the likely cause. Once that is known, then the treatment is straightforward.
Even without knowing, we can look at a child's parameters, urine pH, liver function (by lack of appetite, very select appetite etc.) and we treat accordingly.

08/13/2012: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "If it was childhood vaccinations, then he needs at least N Acetyl Cysteine, maybe 3 times a day to 4 times a day, lysine at least hourly doses, for four doses preferably two times a day, to get rid of virus and mercury toxicity (thimerosal), and selenium perhaps 100 mcg. As to the dose for N acetyl Cysteine, lysine, that depends on the weight of the child.
