My daughter and I just tested for heavy metals, she is only 4 and tested off the charts high in Barium... 6.7 or below is normal, she tested 15.5... I need to know how to chelate a child and do not fully understand your directions even if they are safe for kids... you do this amino thing for 4 days and then 2.5 hours later the next step and another 2.5 hours later vitamin C?? I really hope we can talk.

I must state that I am not a doctor.
I am not a parent.
Congratulation of being aware and giving extra caring to your daughter.
Based on my experience with heavy metal poisoning, I would think about the consequences of giving your daughter Vitamin C and other amino acids. Those supplements offset anxiety. They alter the metabolism, the brain, the mood, will upset the stomach. It's your personal choice whether you want to submit your daughter to it, whether you judge she needs it.
I would pass on the amino acids since I didn't read that she has any symptom that would justify a detox.
Prevention? If you want to support her, check where she contracted barium and see if you can lower the environmental exposure.
If it's it in the shower water, put a shower filter, etc…
A detox is a process. She is young, her consciousness is highly pure and her body very adaptable. Her body has great capacity to adapt to her environment and eliminate accordingly. It's a strong ability her young body has so she can survive, grow and blossom in the present earth.
Consider the psychological factor of telling a child she may have more heavy metal than most. She doesn't have anything wrong with her but may be too young to understand that regardless how pedagogically she's told. The best thing you can do as a mother is to be a healthy you. Eat smart, radiate peace and be harmonious. Your daughter will mimic your habits.
I speculate than if we tested all the population with heavy metals, a very small percentage would be under the maximum for all heavy metals. And a large percentage would have n-fold over the limit. Getting a heavy metal test result surprise a lot of healthy people. Contact the heavy metal test labs and ask them for their statistics to get the facts.
She tested higher than average on one test. You don't have to do anything about it. Let it be, if you want to lead the way of a detox, do it gently as the process it is.
You don't have to control your child's chemistry, the barium might be there for her own good, only the creator knows the big picture. What I do know is that storms are in the sky.
What you may choose to do are subtle approaches, educate her in eating mild chelator foods such as Cilantro. Parsley is good as a diuretic, foods rich in magnesium help out balance bodies with heavy metals. Please check first that those foods are good for 4-year old children.
Monitor her, maybe have her tested every few years; Monitor passively her learning and memory ability for flags. As long as the excess barium makes her smarter, I am sure you and her can live with it.
I am confident you will choose what's best for your angel.
