Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I've decided I don't like this allergy testing. As part of the first screening, they do a spot with Candida to test your immune response (everyone reacts or is supposed to. if you don't, then your immune response is compromised). I figured, ok maybe red bump. No. Painful itchy blisters that still haven't gone away yet. Bleah. Guess my immune response is working... maybe too well.

I don't think you should still be reacting. My allergist told me to take Benadryl if my bumps/hives didn't go away after testing. Although you will have to be careful because depending on the next time you have testing...you have to have no anti histamine in your system. ;)

I'm glad to hear that things went well yesterday. And, Trader Joes isn't really an international market. It's just lots of organic prepared foods, etc. that are way more reasonable than Whole Foods.

Ok this morning at 5 am i took some activated charcoal, i figured it was time to take this and see if it helps with anything. And all i know is my stomach now hurts and im tired, am i supposed to feel like this. I have no idea what charcoal is actually supposed to do so im kinda lost anyway lol. I just wanted to try it cause so many with celiac or candida have used it to feel better.

Try doing detoxes every 6 months to clear all the built up crap out of your system.

There are different types. Find the one that works for you.

You can be allergic to parasites that live inside your body also. If so, get the para cleanse from Nature's sunshine.

It's meant to be used as a toxin binder. I don't know if you're supposed to feel like that. I never have, but my mom for example feels worse when she takes charcoal.

Hopefully someone with more "charcoal" experience will help. ;)

OK, so after posting here I decided to try and find someone to test me for mercury, the provoked urine test. We'll see.... but my question is, if I do have it, then what do I do? I am too sick to do chelation and I've heard horror stories about it. Plus, now I am trying to figure out what to do about this filling that needs to be replaced ?! My regular dentist doesn't get mercury at all. 'Plus I'm really broke with this health struggle to now pay out of pocket for a dentist. Should I just have him replace it and take a bunch of chorella afterwards? :P

Another question, would you still get tested for lyme even though I don't have many of the symptoms on the list? Or wait and address the mercury thing first? I know Rachel is most experienced in this so hopefully she'll pop in :D

HEya everyone just catching up

So I went to church last night. Yes they have church on Friday nights and I go. But anyway before that I have noticed this one boy about 13 or so he seems to scream when the praise and worship is getting louder.

I figured he has autism. So anyway I was at whole foods last night and what do you know, he and his mother were their. Anyways I introduced myself to her and asked her about her son..

She said he has autism and had strep throat real bad. She did'nt want me around him. So I told her if he is being treated and she said that they have been going to naturopathes but she feels it's too late for him. She believe they caught it to late and that he's not getting better.

They done chelation, strict diet and everything. I asked her if he has been checked for lyme disease and she looked surprised and said no that he hasn't. She says she is always up for anything new.

Do you think there could be any chance besides a miracle from God that he can be functional again.? Anyone?

Thanks kassandra,

Im thinking its not the charcoal that has me this way, i think its the beer i had last ngiht. i was so stressed after taking my little princess to the Er for cutting her finger i had to have one, it was that or an cigarette so i decided the beer would be less harmful to my body lol.

I only took one capsule, should i have taken 2, or should i get the pwder form of it, or oculd i just take them out of the capsule, they are 560 mg.

Uh oh...I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. Is she okay?

I believe I used to take 2 pills of charcoal at the same dose as you. I don't see why you would need to take the charcoal out of the caps or get powdered form. Good caps dissolve quickly, so I don't think it would matter to get the powder.

I'm assuming it was gluten free beer? That may be a stupid question but you never know. ;)

Beer is a BIG no no for candida...so that could be where the stomach pain is coming from. It fed the candida beasties. :lol:

OH GRRR!!! :lol: I can't believe it...I think it is NOT meant for me to see Dr. Amy.

I turned on my cell phone to see what time it was and it said I had a missed message. So I'm trying to listen, but I'm late for my massage appointment, so I gave up, but heard enough to know it was the scheduling person for Dr. Amy.

So, I get home and call back, but they're not in today...so I check when the message was left. WEDNESDAY!!! I'm sure all appointment times have been taken. I'll call on Monday just in case, but I'm pretty sure they're gone, because her last sentence was "call if you are still interested". If I were them and didn't hear back that day or the next I'd go to the next person on the list. :( I'm not kidding when I say I NEVER use my cell, lol. Don't have the thing turned on most of the time...I don't even know how they got it, lol. :ph34r:

So, my massage was fun. I completely forgot I even had an appointment today, but they were able to squeeze me in. The therapist has been massaging my stomach...well this time she said "your organs are so much better this time" and she specifically said my liver was MUCH better. :D I told her that Anna had given me some homeopathic drops for detoxing, and that must have taken some of the burden off! Yay!

I'm just hanging out here... too tired to post. :P

Ditto! I've been reading along, but by the time I log on, all questions and subjects are usually covered pretty well already, lol!

Same here, Donna and Birdy.

Lori, I am not sure what to say, but Andrea might have an idea. She is still waiting to do dental work I think, right Andrea?

I think she is still taking KingChlorella to help with the mercury.

Seems like testing for the mercury to figure out what you are dealing with, then maybe start with supporting your body's own detox pathways and adding the binders.

Yep, I'm taking King Chlorella. The dose was determined by muscle testing (ART). I still have my amalgams and plan to get them taken care of this fall.....the doctor is a mercury free dentist. I do know when I had my root canal pulled I was told to take x number of chlorella before and after the procedure.

Donna,

Sorry about the probably miss of Amy again. Hopefully she's here for longer this visit and you'll still be able to get in. Great news on the massage! :)

Andrea,

What is KingChorella? Where do I get that? And where do I find a doctor who can do ART muscle testing? Once your fillings are removed then are going to do chelation? Or what other "plan" do people do when dealing with mercury? Thank you.

King Chlorella with Russian immure support is available online, but you'd need to be tested to see if your body even liked it. I had tried taking a different brand of chlorella before ART and it didn't agree with me, or I was taking too litle.

ART......I don't know what state you are in so that is more challenging. If you email the better health guy (I'd have to look up his website address but I think it's betterhealthguy.com, he may know of someone somewhere near you.

I don't know if I'll need to do chelation or not. I'll be leaving that up to my practitioner who does ART and my doctor who does chelation if need be. I'll probably have to do a challenge test, but I'm primarily be going off of what ART comes up with. Since I'm not chronically ill, I may be able to do things without chelation.

My last amalgam was taken out last year in February and I still haven't started chelation. My dentist suggested I wait for at least six months after removal, but I think that was because some people feel better just having them removed and maybe because sometimes removal can redistribute the load so to speak.

My doctor won't do chelation yet for me because my body is burdened with the mold situation. He is afraid that I would have a big set back. So we've basically been building up and supporting my body and it's ability to detox and handle chelation. And I'm taking homeopathic and supplemental support for helping with the mercury (and all the other stuff too). We're getting close to PERHAPS :lol: doing a provoked challenge just to see what's there, but he wants me to see if my BioSET practitioner thinks my body can handle it...I don't know if they can test for that, but I'll know in a couple of weeks. :)

While I was in the process of having my amalgams removed, I took extra Vitamin C, chlorella and something called modified citrus pectin (plus a host of other nutritional things). The chlorella and pectin bind with the mercury. I have continued to take all of those for this last year.

Kassandra, be sure to bring your rain boots, LOL. We're supposed to have rain tomorrow and Tuesday. It'll be in the 60's tomorrow, then back down to the 30's.

Lori, I don't know that you want to take chelators while you still have amalgams. Hopefully Rachel will chime in soon, she's the mercury expert around here.

But I think chlorella would be something that would be good now and when you have the dental work done. My removal was covered by dental insurance because my fillings were old. I just had to pay the difference to get the white ones.

The ideal would be to find a biological dentist (www.mercuryfreedentists.com), but if you can't for some reason, at least take the previous suggestions (rubber dam, vitamin C, chlorella, etc.).

I would hold off on the Lyme testing. I just don't see that it makes sense if you're not showing symptoms, and that money is better spent on taking care of the mercury, etc. IMHO.

I was considering going to Dr. Mercola's clinic in Illinois because I've had it with feeling so sick and don't know where to go or what to do. It would cost $3000 to have tests run for 2 days. What do you think? www.mercola.com

Big week! Big week! Big week!

Bouncy Bouncy!!!!

Today's allergy testing and getting the last minute stuff together for tomorrow. Oh yeah, and packing.

Tomorrow's my appt at Dr H's office. Might take my laptop with me and post something tomorrow night, provided I can figure out how to get the darned thing to work.

Wednesday, drive home.

Thursday, Hida scan. Eek!

------------------------------

Birdy, hope you're feeling better soon.

Kass, travel safe! Have a great time! :D

Lisa, I've heard various reviews about Mercola. I've read some of his work. Some of it seems to make sense, other stuff is too far out there for me. Three grand seems to be a lot of money, but getting an answer is priceless. Are there any holistic docs near you who could maybe do the same thing only cheaper? Some even take insurance.

Lori, I think Dr. Mercola would be a good thing. I get his newletter .... he is sometimes more over the top then we are here, LOL, but I think he knows HEALTH. He looks at the big picture, which is what we all need.

miamia, deep tissue massage is wonderful, but tell them to go easy as it releases a lot of toxins. Listen to your body, if it can take more, tell them deeper, if it hurts, tell them less. Drink lots of water, and perhaps take a binder to help with symptoms. You will most likely be tired the rest of the day. I used to get them on occasion after a herx and felt they cleared that achey feeling out of my muscles.

Listen to your body! That's how I felt when I'd get them. Now I don't feel that I need them so much anymore ..... unfortunately, LOL.

Kassandra gets here in a couple hours. My kids are so excited .... my girls even made their beds this morning .... funny, they never have time to make their beds before school, I laughed when I walked in there this morning. :lol:

I haven't looked in the basement yet ...... don't know if my 17 year old son is trying to impress her or not, but I'll know when I go down there, LOL.
