Erethism may only be from mercury poisoning, but 'excessive shyness, timidity and social phobia' could be a symptom of many things. I could find many of my personality/behavioral traits under autism. My physical symptoms can be found under lupus, lyme disease, MS..........the list goes on.

thanks Lisa, that's more what I MEANT to say ;)

There are different protocols out there. It's hard to say what to do because everyone is different and has different needs of support for their body.

Have you looked at http://www.iaomt.org/

That website has some good info on it.

I was going to have my teeth done last fall but was unable too. I was given a protocol, but I won't say anything on that due to my first statement.

Your body would need support as well as help with the mercury that is stirred up during the removal (a toxin binder) for one. My protocol had me starting things a month ahead of when the first removal was. Read up on this and see what you can do to help you body deal with the additional mercury during this time. High protein and high veggie intake in very important, along with lots of water to flush the system.

Charcoal and chlorella are good if you tolerate them. I had tried chlorella once and it didn't go over well with me. I was muscle tested and put on another brand. It is very difficult to self treat for mercury as you can really mess up your body more if you don't detox well or your detox is sluggish.

I wouldn't recomment the cilantro because of that.

Charcoal needs to be taken away from other supps. I've never used it myself but that is what others have said.

It is very important to try and find a practitioner that can help you with this so you don't cause yourself more harm. Any naturopath's or holistic doctors near you? You need to weigh everything you're told. There is good and bad in both sides of medicine.

sorry andrea but i had to stop reading your post after you mentioned muscle testing. i had that done with neurofeedback and i never felt so intellectually insulted in all my life. just...just the idea of it.

anyways i have a question, and i hope i didn't drive rachel away with them: can you have a white filling that was done over an amalgam? i don't know if that's the case and i'll call my dentist (even though im already scheduled to get them replaced) but i have heard that they can do that.

We found out my dd was gluten intolerant thru muscle testing. There is a thread on here about it, if anyone wants to google it.

Dylan, you can PM Rachel, I am sure she would like to help you with any further questions.

I guess I should have clarified. I had ART done which is an advanced form of muscle testing developed in part by Dr Klinghardt. As with many doctors, some muscle testers are good and some are not. Sounds like you had a not.

As far as having white fillings put over the amalgam. I don't know about that. I know I have crowns over amalgam though, which I'll eventually replace.

I've had a couple of "silver" fillings replaced in the last three years. After the dentist drills out the original filling he or she can definitely replace it with a resin filling.

I don't think it's common to layer one filling over another... fillings deteriorate over time, so you need to keep an eye on them. Keep in mind that metal shows up easily on x-ray, so if (for some reason) you had one that was hidden it would definitely be possible to find it again.

What an odd expression Mr. Moore..... B)

There is more to healing than intellect, try thinking yourself off the toilet. :lol: Sorry if I seem rude but it seems to me so much of the grief we find ourselves in is precisely because of a kind of intellectual thinking that we can put any kind of poop that passes for food in our bodies and they will just keep running and running. NOT!

Oh, but even better for big pharma is that as poisoned as we are by this poop we need more poop from them to keep going, drugs to suppress our reactions to being poisoned. I think Ritalin falls into that category.

Recently a professor from a University in Saskatchewan published a book, using the government of Canada's own studies, showed the declining nutritional content of food in Canada. He was fired and the book removed from the library and bookstore.

So, not only poisoned but starved of real nutrients.

There is seriously messed up poop happening with our food supply. Do you ever wonder about these people who just lose it, kill themselves and others, do you even wonder about their diet and what medications they are on?

As for muscle testing, I tend to think it is as good as the tester. I look at it this way, there are no solids, what appears as solid to us is constantly in motion, that is the nature of the world. Did you know that end of our lives we carry DNA from others, that throughout our lives we literally meld with others and become a part of them and they a part of us?

Who is to say what is true and what is not, we must trust our own experience but in order to trust it we must know it and that requires paying attention with a mind and body awake and aware. That is difficult if we are sick.

Please try to be a little more respectful of other's views. Human beings are incredibly complex, and what works for one person may not work for another.

Just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean it's bad.

Thanks for asking. :) I can't recall where I read that but your question sent me looking and I did find this article:

DNA

The team then measured total methylation changes in a different set of DNA samples collected from Utah residents of northern and western European descent. These DNA samples were collected over a 16-year span from 126 individuals from two- and three-generation families.

Similar to the Icelandic population, the Utah family members also showed varied methylation changes over time. But they found that family members tended to have the same kind of change-if one individual lost methylation over time, they saw similar loss in other family members.

"We still haven't concretely figured out what this means for health and disease, but as an epidemiologist, I think this is very interesting, since epigenetic changes could be an important link between environment, aging and genetic risk for disease," Fallin says."

Oddly enough, I just read that paper. My student is doing an epigenetics project and we were discussing ways to measure methylation.

I think you've misinterpreted the results. What they found was that methylation changes over time cluster in families, which suggests a genetic component to methylation (rather than a purely environmental component).

It has nothing to do with who you associate with, it's a result of who you are genetically related to.

Hi, you may well be correct but I am certain that I did read just that somewhere, but where? :huh:

What I took from the article above is that our DNA does change over our lives and that change may be affected by the environment, from there it is an easy leap for me to consider myself an environmental change. :lol:

How funny that you had just read this article. :)

Technically speaking, your DNA does not change. Methylation is more of a masking event, like closing and opening curtains that allow a room to be viewed, or not. The room doesn't change, only access to it.

i did the muscle testing with a neurologist who did the neurofeedback. she held my arm out and basically "asked it" if i needed this stuff called gabba. i had to say yes yes yes, or no no no, it didn't make sense. especially back then when i was a LOT more manic in finding a cure, i just felt like getting up and walking out the door.

Sounds like you may have had a strange experience <_<:huh:

My Lyme doctor does muscle testing when I see him (every other month) and then does bloodwork to check the two against each other and it is bizarrely accurate.

I think that your body knows things that can't necessarily be tested with current technology.

Check out some of the sites in this google search:

http://www.google.com/search?client=firefo...G=Google+Search

My problem with muscle testing is that it's very very subjective. You'd need a good practitioner, AND you'd need to be open to the possibility that it might work.

Sometimes you have to let go of conscious control of your body, and let it make the decisions.

hey guys i just found out im getting all my fillings (6) removed in one visit. here's two things im worried about:

1)my mouth is gonna kill.

2) i heard mercury could be increased but i also heard you should just get em all out right away. which im all for.

i just hope they're gentle because in the past, even on anesthesia i could feel some pain. my teeth are very sensitive. but it's for the best!

This shouldn't really be that bad. I am 'caine' resistant and you may be also. Just let the dentist know if you feel anything and he will stop and give you more anesthetic. Take an asprin or aceteminophin or something along those lines if you are worrying about pain afterwards but you shouldn't really have any.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
