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 ;)

oh sorry dingo girl i thought you were implying the hormones thing again. or "unresolved issues". im pretty sure i don't have lupus or MS mostly because it's more common in women. anyways i just scheduled my appointement for the 19th. i don't know what i'm gonna expect i just hope they follow SOME procedure.

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.

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
