MayoClinic says: detox therapy for autism is dangerous!
Is chelation therapy an effective autism treatment?
Answers from Jay L. Hoecker, M.D.

Chelation therapy is not an effective autism treatment, and it may be dangerous.

Some doctors and parents have considered chelation therapy as a potential autism treatment. Proponents believe that autism is caused by mercury exposure, such as from childhood vaccines. Chelation therapy supposedly removes mercury from the body, which chelation supporters say cures autism — but there's no evidence of a link between mercury exposure and autism. In addition, chelation therapy can be associated with serious side effects, including potentially deadly liver and kidney damage.

There's no cure for autism — now called autism spectrum disorder in the newest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association. As a result, many unproven alternative therapies are often suggested. However, these alternative therapies are usually found to be ineffective and sometimes harmful.

Consult your primary doctor if you're considering an alternative treatment for autism spectrum disorder. Your doctor may help you identify treatment options and local resources that provide support or refer you to a health professional who can do so.

The equivalent of a sound bite. The article has no details on which alternative therapies exist and what the issues with them are. This fellow has already made up his mind on the matter without actually doing any legwork.

I've seen references around the 'Net, and not recently so I don't recall the sources, where cases of autism have been resolved through changes in diet. GMO has been strongly linked to autism, for instance, and removing GMO from a child's diet has resulted in drastic improvements in social interaction. In fact, I recall a video from not too long ago where cannabinoids (without THC) were used to treat, very effectively, autism.

This is a case where it's a good idea to put an article like the above on the sideburner and look for data in multiple places to get a better picture of what's happening.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.

This guy is a regularly trained physician, he's not the right kind of person to write a quick review on alternative autism treatments. But you must believe him without question, he's an emeritus member of the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, certified as a pediatrician by the American Board of Pediatrics and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He was trained at Washington University's St. Louis Children's Hospital, and in infectious diseases at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston!

This is the kind of proof that you'll find all the time on sites like mayoclinic.com, I wonder who'se behind this website?!

Actually, I stumbled upon this article when I was looking for alternative treatments for autism. These guys are solidly indexed on top!

Recently, vasili69 has uploaded two video lectures on vaccinations and autism, the first was published in 2005:Mercury, Autism & the Global Vaccine Agenda - Dr. David Ayoub; the other in Jul 4, 2013:The Central Mechanism By Which Vaccines Induce Autism - Dr. Russel Blaylok. These people are convinced that vaccinations are the principal cause, autism is nothing but a brain intoxication with mercury. I think you should take a look at this material.
