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.

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.

    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I am assuming United States- It has been a long time since I studied health info law, but I doubt this part has changed.  A doctor would not change the record just because you said its wrong.  They might make a correction if they remembered or had actual facts (like a lab test read incorrectly or appearing later).  What you are allowed to do is write a letter to be included in the record.  You need to put in larger letters at the top, something like "This note must be included with any release of information from my medical record".   I am not sure how it is handled with electronic releases these days.  You could contact a medical records department (ask for the release of info section)  at a large hospital near you and ask how they handle it.  Be nice and tell them it isn't a problem with their facility but you know they are the experts.  I would urge you to make the note short and not nit pick.  State the big basic facts that you don't agree with and don't worry about the little things.  People will not read a really long note or it will make you look crazy (in a bad way  )   And for the apt with your neurologist.  Don't bring it up, see what he/she says first.  Half the time they don't read all the little details or even receive more than a brief - tests run & results and maybe a brief summary.  You might be surprised, your doc might think the person is a bit of a jerk, but hoped you might mesh with them. I recently had my doc agree with me when I said I couldn't stand another doc that had been in her practice.  lol
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I called this doctor's office again to inquire if my medical records have been corrected. When I called to amend my records because there was inaccurate information, the staff member told me that I need to write my complaint in email to doctor. So, that's  what I did. The doctor wrote things I said that I didn't say, which changed the meaning of what I said so I wanted to correct that. I talked to a different staff member today who irritated me in the past by saying things she was going to do which she never did. Her tone of voice is condescending and argumentative like she refuses to help you or that's probably what makes me feel irate. Today she said the doctor wasn't going to commit fraud by writing something I told her to write. I don't feel irate when I talk to the other staff member who answers the phone. Anyway, this staff member said she printed my email for the doctor to read, and she'll reply when she wants to reply (never). I said that it's not the doctor's choice to choose whether or not to correct inaccurate information in medical records. I said I think by law, it must be done so if the doctor continues to ignore my request to correct inaccurate information, then I should probably file a medical complaint somewhere. Finally, the doctor called me back. She asked what was inaccurate when I said I wanted to correct the incorrect information. Then, I asked if she read my email. She said she did not have time to read patient STORIES. I said a good doctor would make the time to read a request to correct inaccurate information in a patient's medical record. Then, she said I'm sick to keep writing letters to her. I said I only wrote one email to her and it was because a staff member said that is how to amend the inaccurate information. She added that if I really had physical symptoms, I would not have been able to get a college degree or write letters to her. Although I explained to her during my consult that I took online classes and did homework in bed with lots of breaks, she thinks I must be pretending to have symptoms. I also explained during my consult that half of my dizziness and migraines are gone since being on a gluten-free diet. Yes, this makes sense why her office makes me feel so irate! I ended the call by asking if she was going to correct the inaccurate in my medical records. She kept rambling on how only sick people keep writing letters to doctor. Again, I told her I only wrtote one email to her and that's because her staff member told me to correct inaccurate information in record. The staff member recommended this instead of filling out a record amendment form, which I don't think they have. She said file a complaint like it was a joke. Since my neurologist referred me to her when I inquired about help for my memory problems, I'm afraid she will tell him negative things about me. Her office is just across the hall from his. Doctors are more likely to take the word of another doctor over a patient. In contrast to this doctor, my neurologist is a real competent doctor. Do you ever think that sometimes doctors are crazy, but they get away with making others think it's the patient who is crazy because they are more powerful? This doctor is a neuropsychiatrist. I will never see a neuropsychiatrist again due to this bad experience.  My appointment with the neurologist is in another week. I don't know if I should briefly mention my bad experience with this doctor so he won't believe her if she tells him that I am faking my symptoms. It would be like I was faking my whole life if I was faking my symptoms. Maybe I could say something like the brain testing wasn't very helpful with that doctor since she assumed my symptoms were all in my head  because I graduate from high school and obtained a college degree in the past. I also told her during my consult that I received average grades in high school because I often went straight to bed after school not having chance to do homework. This feels like abuse or abuse of power from the doctor. I wish I recorded the phone conversation with this doctor calling me names.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Hello to all -this is my first entry! I am checking with everyone to see if they have been having a reaction to the Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin (chocolate) shake mix after drinking it.  When you read the label on the container, it states that it has Oat Fiber in it -but then reading online through their website it shows the ingredients contain "wheat products".  I don't have severe Celiacs but now that I have been gluten-free for 7 years, I notice when things aren't right.  I started (my wife starting giving to me) the Nature's Bounty mix around 4 months ago -but have only recently (within the last month) been experiencing stomach pains after drinking (pretty much immediately -before I am even done with it). Does anyone else have this issue?  Does anyone know specifically if it is NOT gluten-free?  It does not state so on the container or on their website. Thank you for any input you can provide. Pete
    • Gluten-Free Safety Starts Here
      How many of us have suffered from cross contamination? Most celiacs have felt the side effects of getting gluten in their food. If it is not your own kitchen, utensils, pots or pans it can be a bit nerve racking. It is not only extremely unpleasant, but unhealthy to our intestines as well. It can cause damage that can be very detrimental in the long run. View the full article

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
