Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Sherry,

I don't know if I would test poorly for Mepron because she seems to have an issue with prescription drugs. It's a good question. I am not really too worried about what she said because I really trust my LLMD and his NP. I will take into consideration some of the things she said, but I'm not going to stop taking Mepron or Zith because I didn't test well for them.

Also, she said that she could get rid of my insomnia by me taking these little pellets...well, I didn't fall asleep without Ambien last night, so I don't know. I'm also not willing to lose up to 12 days of sleep, which is how long she said it would take.

My sleep issues are only because I am not able to do enough to get tired enough. I have never had insomnia, and I know that once I have more energy to do more things, I will be able to sleep better. :)

Wasn't getting updates again. I don't know what it is about updates for this thread.

Sherry,

Sounds like you had a very busy, tiring day. That's a lot of traveling!

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Happy B day Carla. What are you like 36, 37? ^_^

Hi everyone.

Yeah Julie I still have my amalgams. About 6 of them and I know this is one reason I taste metal so bad. That is actually maybe a good thing since it warned me about the rust coming in from outside my window.

About the foot detox pads, did you know that Avon sells them now? My mom was showing me the avon catalog that she orders from. :rolleyes: They really do have detox foot pads that you can order. I don't know if I would order them from Avon..

So for the rust I have been taking bentonite clay, vegetable binder and zeolite hp from nutramedix.

I really want to try the zeolite from waiora. I have been to several conferences and the product seems promising about how thier zeolite can pull many toxins and metals from the body.

There zeolite has been cleared of toxins and metal, where most zeolites have many toxins and metals on them already. I don't know, have to see...

Mia, I just finally ordered my detox foot pads yesterday. I'm really not all that excited to try them because I think I'm probably gonna react to them.

I only ordered the minimum (20) and I'll see what happens. Once I saw the ingredients on the pads my excitement faded pretty fast. Its all stuff I know my body cant process very well. I just dont know how much of it will be absorbed into my system and if it'll be enough to cause problems.

I know that the castor oil from the packs I tried last year was enough to totally cause all kinds of symptoms after about 15 minutes over my mid-section. Way too much salicylate I think. :blink:

I hope its not the same problem with the foot pads but they do contain salicylates. :(

I got my molybdenum in the mail today. :)

I cant try it until next week because I have to stop taking minerals 4 days prior to my bloodtest on Monday. I got impatient and bought a lesser quality brand of it at the health store but I only took one because as soon as I swallowed it I started reacting. :rolleyes:

Hopefully that wont be the case with this stuff.

Kassandra....did you send an email about the appt. with the practitioner who did muscle testing or did you post about it? I didnt see any posts...if you sent an email...can I have one? :)

If you dont mind coming to the bay area once every 3 months maybe you can try to see Amy. She's great...I think you'd really like her. I dont feel that she's anti-abx or prescription meds...she wanted me on Alinia for parasites rather than any of the herbal treatments....which I didnt test well for.

She has me on prescription drugs for chelation rather than some of the other options...because thats what I test well for.

I've heard some good things about zeolite. Do you think its helping you Lisa?

Cool that you're getting out there and learning all this stuff. I wanna go to a conference too! :lol:

Even though most people I talk to are pretty understanding and even interested in some of this stuff...in the beginning noone really "gets it". Its all new to them....most of us wouldn't have a clue if we hadnt gotten sick. Well...I know I wouldnt....I'd still be living off Big-Macs (and loving it!). :D

I wouldnt have heard of any of the things we discuss here.

Theres a customer who shops at my store. Nice guy...gave me a rose on Valentines Day...asked me out a couple times. I declined and told him I'm pretty much doing my own thing...not looking to date anyone. I said I have health issues I'm working on, etc. etc.

He ended up asking me about my health...and mentioning herbal treatments. I didnt want to go into any detail about my problems...just said that I got really toxic and cant tolerate foods, herbal treatments, etc. But thanks for the suggesstions. :)

He said he understood what I was talking about...that he was working on detox too....with some herbal stuff. Lots of people say they understand but they really dont...they dont get the whole picture until I really explain it to them.

Today he came in and asked when we're gonna go out for...water?? :lol::lol:

Anyways, he handed me a paper with some stuff he thought might be helpful for me. He had written down some stuff about EDTA chelation, zeolites and some other stuff. All stuff having to do with heavy metals and detox. :blink:

That totally impressed me!! :o

Ok...I'm still not trying to date anyone but I did appreciate that he had taken the time to write that stuff down for me. It was sweet. :)

I guess he must have some understanding even with what little info. I gave him. I'm not used to meeting people who already have some knowledge about any of this....except for the ones I meet in the doctor's office. :P

Also shocking that I didnt have to go into great detail for someone to really understand what I'm taking about when I say I'm toxic and cant eat anything. :lol:

Sure, I'll send you an email. I don't know if I'm really interested in seeing yet another Dr right now. I have heard GREAT things about Dr Amy, but I just think I need to stick it out a little bit longer with my Dr's. I could see going to see Dr Amy if I don't make any progress, but for now that's not the case.

Also, $$$$$. LOL! These things get so expensive!

Yep, I think a guy that is willing to go out for water sounds like someone worth checking out--friendship anyway.

I asked today at the local pharmacy about detox foot pads, and she knew what they were. Said they were Chinese not Japanese! So I'll keep looking.

Rachel, I don't know if you're interested in this or not, but IGeneX has a new test .... if you have an equivocal result and had band 30 or 31 show up, they can run this test to see whether that band is from borrelia or not.
