Celia was an excellent sports girl in several sport disciplines (rythmic gymnastics and volleyball) finishing champion of the Scholastic Community of Madrid in both, year 2008/2009. Last year she could not do physical education (the teacher made an adaptation with a theoretical test). Due to her fatigue she was practically all afternoons in bed trying to study with great difficulty and trying to concentrate in order that she would pass her exams (the previous year she finished the course with A’s and B’s), failing some subjects. Physically her condition has deteriorated and she has been sad all the year. She also had undergone special urine and hair analysis which revealed a lack of lithium and other minerals in her body and that is what the doctor told her and which could explain her condition. It should also be recognised that there are two doctors working on the chelation of the girls since most of them have high levels of heavy metals. At a personal level her daily routine consists of taking all her different medicines since her process began (January 2009) and since August she follows a diet without gluten or casein (in milk products) and she has other food restrictions which makes it very difficult for her in front of her friends (she takes with her to school the food which has been prepared for her at home- before she ate in the school dining room). This year she has begun to practice physical activity again, but with a much more moderate rate.
