A lot of the symptoms you posted can also be experienced by those frequently smoking a controlled substance. If this is one of your habits, you might want to consider that.

hello everyone. i just talked to this guy named Leo at the Dental Amalgam Mercury Syndrome (DAMS) hotline thingy, and well i basically read bout everything he told me. but he told me about some lady who had her amalgams removed wrongly and got the symptoms of MS!! wtf! so im a little less hurried about this, man i can't believe it. for once, this is one thing that is actually making sense to me. i just got to make sure they follow the right procedures.

ok rachel hasn't responded in days i would like to have someone give me their experience. also how would i get my insurance to help cover it?

I am glad to know you are continuing to investigate. :) I think it would be great if you could get your Mom on side with your diet, if she has health issues she may see a real improvement.

As for the tongue, no white is not healthy and normal, white indicates candida as I understand it. A healthy person's tongue is pink and clean looking, no white stuff.

Lots of us have felt crazy and alone and beyond sad too, I remember at nineteen having a passport photo taken and the photographer asked me to smile, I couldn't smile, I couldn't think of one thing I had to smile about. I don't think I smiled at all that year.

I've also felt a kind of crazy rage where I wanted to crawl out of my body, the sensation was like something was scraping the inside of my skin and it made me feel insane. That's all gone now, I haven't had that stuff since I stopped consuming any MSG.

I am on the SCD and last night I had pizza for supper, a super easy crust:

1 1/3 cup almond flour
1/3 cup dry curd cottage cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried rosemary (not the powder)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 large egg

Put all ingredients in a food processor, combine well, divide into two and put on baking trays with parchment paper on them, using a piece of plastic wrap pat down the batter so that you have two round flat circles about 8 - 9 inches across. I leave the edge a little higher so that it helps to hold the toppings on.

Toppings, what do you like? Last night I fried some onions for long time and put them, cheese. tomatoes and olives on top, and then baked it at 325 degrees F for 25 minutes.

As so many other have stressed, diet, diet, diet makes an enormous difference and until you commit to doing just one for some period of time you won't be able to see if it is making a difference.

As to what others are doing or thinking you will find you have to decide for yourself what is true for you and what is not, I see many people who are unwilling to rethink their diets though they are ill, they seem to be completely convinced that they are some kind of miracle machines who can put anything they are told is fuel into them and they will just keep going forever and that whatever is not working can be fixed with some kind of pill.

Did you say you were on Ritalin at one point? As I understand it that drug alone may cause problems.

yeah that's what i expected, especially when i go to one of my "specialty doctors" i have in the past 6 months.
its like saying "i have a headache what is the problem?" and your bombarded with explanations. i don't know. but again if you want, i can tell you guys the many doctors ive been to! id be glad to really, maybe because im thought of as a hypochondriac by most .


Boy does that list you gave hit home. Imagine feeling like that for more than 15 years with explosive constant daily D, balance issues and migraines thrown into the mix. Add those and you have most of my adult life. I understand that you feel like you are thought of as a hypochondriac. I certainly have been there as have many on this board.
I do hope you are still on the gluten-free diet, doing it full force and that you will give it at least a couple of months to help. I am not saying that you don't have other issues mixed in, you may. But you also may not. I didn't have this board when I was first diagnosed and I was simply happy to have the daily and nightly painful bouts of D stop. I laughed under my breath when the elderly doctor who finally diagnosed me told me that I might see a lot of my other issues go away also. I was crying for joy six months later when I ran up my stairs without even thinking about it. It had been years since I could even walk up them without using my arms to haul myself up and I had needed walls or canes to walk without falling over. Then the degenerative process in my joints stopped and I could use my hands again, my vision cleared up and I stopped seeing 'auras' and sparkly lights all the time. I became more calm and rarely angered and the only time I became depressed or had obsessive thought patterns was when glutened. For me my diagnosis seemed like a miracle. But it took time. I still hope that while you investigate other issues furthur that you will keep to the diet.

Hi, the recipe I gave would fit the gluten-free diet and that is what I would suggest you do first, just follow the gluten free diet, for many people that works and it has more variety than the SCD. I love the SCD but I only chose it after two years of following a strict gluten free diet and still suffering.

What are you eating?

Thanks for posting the link Lisa.

one of the reasons ive been so impatient, well i just haven't taken ritalin. in years, but i did today and i feel less anxious. so i can take time to think it over. i did, and i still believe, not only scientifically but in my gut, i must be sensitive to mercury. first off, isn't everyone? it's poisonous.


Yes, mercury IS poisonous to ingest, for everyone. But please know that my mental and physical health has seen a pretty complete reversal withe the gluten-free diet (along with a huge diminishment in processed foods) and.....I have a mouth FULL of mercury fillings. Actually have had some removed in teh last few years by the fully conventional and "unsafe" method and didn't notice anything untoward in mental or physical health. So - while some people are extremely sensitive to this, others are not and, I wouldn't jump to the immediate conclusion that this is the root of your problems.....it could be, but may not be.

Diet is a HUGE factor in mental health for many people. Not all - - I watch my boss and what he eats and am astounded - it's not the best diet and he is a preternaturally upbeat and energetic and happy person. Makes me furious :lol:


I haven't, I don't intend to. I think that a lot of the things they listed are vague. They could pertain to anything, or nothing. That particular site seems a bit like a scare blog. I pretty much skip sites that expect you to believe what they're telling you, without offering any proof.


Yes, most sites and info of a holistic nature, IMO, seem to be SCARE blogs and with little scientific proof, and this is unfortunate as there is validity in many holistic treatments. and it seems universal that different sites addressing different conditions list nearly the exact same list of symptoms.....very curious.


Perhaps it might benefit mr. moore better to have the option of the full board membership, in the quest to answer some of his health concerns, rather than by a one on one Personal Message.


Outstanding point.


One more note to Mr. Moore: I have been on the gluten-free diet for three years now. the first year involved extraordinary ups and downs but stabilization finally - mostly - came. You simply HAVE to get yourself stabilized on a really healthy gluten-free diet for several months, eating mainly whole/unprocessed foods, if possible. It takes a while to reverse conditions in the body and mind brought on by the poisons of the western diet.

You ALSO must realize that there will STILL be vagaries and inconsistencies in your mental health even while maintaining a perfect diet, though these should be fewer and much milder, and the important thing to realize about these small pitfalls is that you must patiently WAIT for the dark clouds to pass, and don't micro-scrutinize every passing emotion. Life happens. Things happen. For women - hormones happen. Grief happens - I went through a terrible heartache this past summer and was beyond astonished to know that I could become that deeply depressed again, but I did and was absolutely flattened for a time. Things got so bad that I resumed taking an antidepressant again, at the urging of friends and loves ones. Months later, I take it just every other day, and hopefully will not take it at all at a future time. But if I need to, I"ll take it forever.

IF after many months on a strict and healthy gluten-free diet you STILL feel like a mad person, then other things must be considered. Other food intolerances, for example. As mentioned above I resumed my Lexapro and this turned things around for me after being demolished by grief in June; BTW I was more than twice your age at the time of dx and my neuropathways and brain had much more opportunity to be screwed up.

Exercise helps mental health and the release of endorphins. Too bad I hate it so :lol: as I must get back to it.

YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!

man im really sad my family doesn't believe me. they keep pointing out all these official articles, and im too tired to argue.


It is sad. People are stubborn and don't want to think outside the box. But...when they see your health change, something will "click" with them. You may not have them on your side now but you have all of us on your side. We understand esp. the ones that have gone thru the similar things you have gone thru. It takes time and patience. We live in a fast pace world and nobody wants to wait. If you are sick its even harder to wait.

As for your family, if they won't listen, do what is best for you and hopefully they will soon follow. Lead by example rather than words. You have enough to deal with for yourself right now. Worrying about their health just puts more stress on you and that's not good.
Please be patient, keep researching, eat right and find a good doc...the same things I and others keep saying.

last night i found something that cemented my belief in the mercury poisoning:
http://www.truehealt...rysymptoms.html

there was another word i forgot which, that said those with it become extremely withdrawn and anxious. which is something that i DEFINITELY noticed in 7th grade, which is when A) i got my tonsils out and B) and i got another fillings. it was so weird because in 6th grade i was pretty outgoing and perceptive, then 7th grade came and all of a sudden i started being afraid of what people thought of me to like a crazy degree. like i'd hide behind tall people, even though was tall and avoid eye contact or standing up in class. it was SO WEIRD.

I was in excellent health at that age... the best physical health of my life. IMO, 7th grade just SUCKS. Most people are going through puberty. Hormonal imbalances can make people pretty crazy and mean :angry: I went to school for 22 years and I have to say that 7th grade was definitely the worst. Ugh. I would NOT like to go through that again.

It's natural to reflect back on your life when you're having a hard time... just remember that not everything is a sign of a serious problem :lol:

I think it is important to remember that there are some things we can have control of; some things it will take time for us to have control of and somethings we may never get control of.

Diet is a strategy that allows you to have some immediate control of what is affecting you and even if mercury is a major problem the diet will help you to begin detoxing.

If you can develop a focus that you can stay with it will help others to see your commitment to changing your life. Who can argue against a healthy diet?

In our culture of expecting instant gratification, it's easy to think that if you try the diet for a meal or two, things should get better. But it took you 19 years to get into this mess and there is no Star Trek magic to just beam you out of it. It's gonna take time - that's just how it is.

There are plenty of official web sites and articles that you can show your mom and other family members if you think that would bring them around to your side.

Gluten intolerance my very well not be your ultimate issue and may not be causing all of your problems. Some board members where were definitely gluten intolerant when they came here discovered that when their other issues were resolved they could resume eating gluten as well as other foods they once could not tolerate.

I forget - have you had the celiac blood test?

Antigliadin antibodies (AGA) both IrA and IgG

Antiendomysial antibodies (EMA) - IgA

Anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTG) - IgA

thanks everyone for supporting me. now i have some questions:

how accuarate, if at all, would a hair or blood sample be for determining CHRONIC mercury toxicity?

ive heard about candida overgrowth but i thought only women got it, like you know, yeast infections. so that's what the whiteness is on my tounge? weird! but like i said knowledge is power. and i realize you can know TOO much. which is why im trying to distract myself so i can rationalize things.

ok so is it safe to say that, despite what mainstream denstists say, mercury is bad coming from your teeth? i noticed that a lot of "national" or "american" associations say it's not, but like germany and sweden and others have it banned. im wondering if i was born elsewhere i wouldn't be weird? like one thing i always do is im always stretching my legs because they always feel very tight, and it becomes a ritual so 'll go hide and stretch. same with pushups my chest skin starts to feel weak and rubbery.
well im gonna keep trying the diet. it actually DID help a bit i noticed i wasn't so moody, but my vision is still blurred and murky, and just weird.
