Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I got my heavy metal results today.

Here they are.

MERCURY reference range 2.19 and my range is 28.40

She said that even if the challenge test pulled the mercury from the

teeth that it is still very high and thats not good. I don't know if I told you

that I get vaginal discharge when I smell sweets. This happened to

another woman who was also tested positive for mercury. She also

believes that I am dealing with candida as well.

Looks like it's off to the dentist for me. Then we will use the chelator with

chlorella she said but just to take it slow. It will take time to heal she said.

BISMUTH reference range 2.28 my range 13.24

This one might be due to the milk of magnesium I take at night

THORIUM reference range 4.189 mine 15.111

TIN ref range 2.04 mine 8.08

TUNGSTEN ref range 0.211 mine 1.221

URANIUM ref range 0.026 mine 0.407

So you think mercury is the cause? I am starting to believe.

They have challenged many people with almagams and they range a 6 or 7.

Why am I a 28.40 then?

Lisa,

I don't know why your numbers are so high or how much the amalgams would have skewed it but yes, it definately looks like that is a major problem of your symptoms. Whether it is the only cause will be determined after you detox if you still have any symptoms that haven't cleared or new ones that come up.

Sounds promising though. :)

Dear Lisa,

It could be due to a variety of things. It is obvious mercury is not the only problem! I knew Candida was part of it! However, these other values are disturbing. They may be due to pollution. Some people who live in industrialized areas end up having chemicals seep into the ground near their home, which gets into their water pipes. Then you drink it, cook with it, and bathe in it, allowing these poisonous substances to enter your system.

I agree with the Dr. on this. The results are very high. I do not believe that the results are that high just because mercury was pulled from your amalgams. You were not doing large doses of IV DMPS.....you took one oral dose and came back very high.

So for sure....by getting the amalgams out and then having treatment to detox....you are doing the right thing to get your health back.

I'm glad your Naturopath is taking this seriously.

I don't know if I told you that I get vaginal discharge when I smell sweets. This happened to

another woman who was also tested positive for mercury. She also

believes that I am dealing with candida as well.

The candida is there because of the mercury. If you were not mercury toxic you would not be having this problem with candida. The only way to get rid of the candida (so that it doesnt come back)...is to get rid of the mercury. Candida is probably the cause of the majority of my symptoms...but the underlying cause is the mercury/metals.

It is believed that the immune system allows candida to overgrow as a defense mechanism when there are large amounts of mercury in the body. The candida is actually binding with the mercury and keeping it from killing your cells. It also keeps the mercury from floating around and causing even greater damage to tissue and organs.

Do not try to treat candida too aggresively in the beginning because you will start releasing alot of mercury into your system....you dont want to do that. Its safer to go very slow....which I'm learning. Its hard for me to have the patience to go slow but trying to rush causes more harm than good.

My mom keeps telling me "Slow and steady wins the race." :)

So you think mercury is the cause? I am starting to believe.

They have challenged many people with almagams and they range a 6 or 7.

Why am I a 28.40 then?

Yeah...I do think its the cause. Ever since you first messaged me I thought it was mercury based on everything you said about your symptoms...they were very similar to mine. Also the candida....to be that severe I would have to assume its mercury....and the leaky fillings definately a "red flag".

As for the question of why are some people (with amalgams) 6 or 7....and you a whopping 28.40???

There are alot of possibilities but here is one that may play the biggest role..

Why do some people get ill from mercury vapor and some show no signs of health problems?

The answer is in our genes. Like most attacks on our bodies, how well we fight these insults depends on our genetic makeup. In the case of mercury exposure, people with certain genetic coding

Jin...once you become mercury toxic...every other toxin piles on top of it. You cant detox the metals, the everyday environmental pollutants, the chemicals in food, the mycotoxins from molds, and on and on and on...

This is why mercury toxic people suffer allergies, chemical sensitivities, food intolerance, etc. Its because you cannot detox efficiently. The severity of these immune responses depends on the level of toxicity.

I would say that both Lisa and I have a very high level of toxicity.

Other individuals may be mercury toxic but have not reached this degree of toxicity. They may have autoimmune disease and a few intolerances...or allergy symptoms....and otherwise feel fine.

Genetics play a role in how fast things can "pile up" on someone.

Dear Rachel,

Does that mean I have mercury overload as well? I know I have Candida. Does everyone with Candida have mercury poisoning? I never had fillings in my teeth until last year. It was a root canal, and I told them no metal! I had started reading "Beating Alzheimer's" and read about the horrors of modern dentistry. I also got Dr. Hal Huggins' book, "It's All in Your Head!" Is that where you got the protocol for mercury fillings that you posted? The material looks familiar to me. I have a composite filling for my root canal. I need two more on my molars. There are extra fillings between the teeth needed on top. They will be composite. I am just undecided about the root canals. If I have Lyme, I could have major problems putting them in. If I do not get it done, I will lose my teeth and risk having a bone infection.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Rachel,

THank you so much for all this information you have given me. I will print it out and give it to the bio dentist and tell him if this is his same protocal. So I was wondering if taking the 50 billion colonies of good bacteria is to high for the candida right now? What would be a good number? Do you also think that milk of magnesia has something to do with having terrible intestines right now? I need this or else no poop for me. THank you again for all this information. I feel so toxic as my guts just move around and make noises all day. I hope by getting treated my bladder will also turn around.

THank you

Ok...I have catching up to do with the posts.

I've been really really tired lately...but its alot better today. :)

I had BioSET last night....found out I went overboard with my chlorella...flooded my system with mercury...had a reversal for metals and minerals...and basically got messed up because I had been Racheling my treatment again. :ph34r:

So yeah..."Slow and steady wins the race." There can be no more racheling of chelation or other detox methods. :(

Oh...I cant even Rachel the saunas. :( I was wanting to do them frequently...to get rid of toxins. Anna said only once a week for me....sometime down the road I can have 2 or 3 a week but for now I can only have one. She said we'll see how I'm feeling after my saunas and the following day.

I went in tonight and had my first one. :D

My mom didnt want me going by myself in case I got dizzy or didnt feel good....she didnt want me driving....so she came with me. They had the same sauna that I posted a few days ago...the one that I really liked.

It was this one...

http://www.sunlightsaunas.com/new_solo.htm

My mom was there so she was wiping the sweat off my face with a cold towel. :)

I didnt notice any difference with my sweat from this sauna and the regular sauna. My sweat wasnt slimey or sticky or anything like that....it was the same....but hopefully more toxins were coming out. B)

About the "reversals" in my BioSET treatments. It means that I got re-sensitized to the metals and minerals. The minerals are essential in chelation...minerals are what helps the body detox mercury....especially sulfur.

So yeah...they said it happened because I pulled out more mercury than I could excrete and got a bunch of loose mercury into my system. This caused my immune cells to start reacting to the mercury/metals again...along with a bunch of other stuff....like the minerals. :(

So thats why I'm feeling yucky lately and super tired. My energy is usually pretty good...but lately I've been going to bed around 7. :huh:

They (Anna and Denise) said we need to focus on excretion and drainage.....because I'm obviously not excreting too well right now. My body is having no trouble releasing the mercury...it wants to come out but its not getting excreted very well. Anna said its alot to do with the yeast. I'm assuming she meant that the toxins from the yeast are putting a big burden on my liver and other organs. :(

They put me on a couple new things to work on this and for now I'm totally chilling out on the detox stuff cuz the past week has not been fun at all. :ph34r:

I got retested last night and the metals I resensitized to were mercury, lead, and a few others (cant remember). They gave me some gum which chelates lead. I get to chew gum!! :D

It tastes good...orange flavor. :)

I was sort of freaking out about the ingredients in the gum....besides the chelator (EDTA)...its got natural orange flavor, xylitol, etc. :o

I was telling Denise I cant take anything because I cant handle the ingredients. My body doesnt like "ingredients". I was kind of pouting because I was scared to take new things.

She said I tested ok for it and she gave me one to sample...she said I just gotta take some things so that my body can start detoxing.

So far so good with the gum. :)

Oh...yesterday at work when I went into the breakroom they had all this food (again). There was 2 lemon merengue pies staring right at me. :o

I couldnt resist...and I was already feeling bad anyways. :P

I ate 3 bowls of the pie...even a little piece of crust (which got in my bowel by accident)!! :blink:

Yup...my head got alot of pressure and I got a little spacey afterwards but heck....that can happen to me when someone walks by with strong perfume. It was totally worth it to me...I just needed it yesterday. :P

The last time I gave in to temptation it was for 2 small quarter size cheescake treats....with topping. That time my reaction was far worse and I had a much smaller amount....It wasnt worth it that time.

I think the cheesecake had alot of the "mold factor"...since it was cream cheese (and not fresh)....but I didnt think much about that before I stuffed them into my mouth. :ph34r:

Oh...after the sauna my eyes burned and still do. This has happened with the regular sauna too.

My sweat is just totally TOXIC....it cant get into my eyes at all or it will burn like heck.

Also I've had my sweat get into my mouth and cause all kinds of tingling and burning sensations. :huh:

Good thing my mom was wiping the sweat from my face this time!!

My tears can be very toxic as well.....sometimes when I've cried my tears have toatlly burned my skin. I think we've taked about this before??? Other people experienced this too?? :unsure:

Also...if I'm EXTREMELY toxic....my tears will be sticky....like syrup. My body forces me to cry...even when I have no reason for tears. This only happens when my tears are sticky...and its like my body wants to get rid of stuff so I cry....involuntarily. :huh:

Afterwards...I feel tons better. So far I've never found another person who experiences this. :unsure:

Anyways....tonight toxins either got into my eys are wanted to come out....cuz my eyes seriously BURN right now!!!

Lisa,

One thing I've learned is that noone is the same. Its impossible to say what might be good or bad for your body right now. I react to alot of things that under normal circumstances would be beneficial....there is just no telling what might set off the immune system when your body is toxic.

I dont take any probiotics at all right now. I dont take much of anything because my body is so sensitive. This is why I rely on my BioSET treatments and ART to sort of guide me with what I can or cant take. Otherwise I have no clue how my body will respond and alot of things I was taking was actually making me worse.

I felt better when I stopped taking supplements and I gained 10 lbs. back once I stopped taking these things.....things started moving better for me by doing that. I dont know if the MOM is helping you or making things worse.

You'll have to really listen to your body...maybe stop taking it and see how your intestines feel??

Dear Rachel,

Does that mean I have mercury overload as well? I know I have Candida. Does everyone with Candida have mercury poisoning? I never had fillings in my teeth until last year. It was a root canal, and I told them no metal!

I think most people with candida have heavy metal issues...probably not everyone though. I'm sure you can have candida for other reasons but if you have mercury toxicity....you will have candida for sure.

Were you sick prior to the root canal? Did you get worse after the root canal?? Root canals...I've learned can be more toxic than mercury. It has nothing to do with metals....it has to do with the fact that the tooth is "dead" and it releases potent toxins. It puts alot of stress on the immune system because the immune system doesnt want something dead staying in the body...so its constantly trying to deal with it.

The toxins released from a root canal are worse than mercury. With all of these things there is not one cause for all this.....things pile up on each other.

As toxic substances overwhelm the immune system and the detox pathways....*other* toxins also stay in the body.

For example...if a person has Lyme...or if a person has toxins accumulating from a root canal...one of these might not be able to take someones health away by itself....BUT....eventually it will wear down the immune system. They will also burden the organs so that *other* things dont get detoxed so easily and also begin to accumulate.

Mercury can accumulate even if a person doesnt have amalgams....if the body's detoxification becomes impaired...heavy metals can accumulate from environmental sources. Everything begins to accumulate when the body cant detox well. Mercury doesnt only come from amalgams.

Eventually too many things are accumualting and all heck breaks loose. Who knows what started it?? We dont really know...we just have to tackle the things that we do know about.

I cant say wether you have mercury toxicity or not. You will need good Dr.'s and testing to figure out whats going on. I agree that you need to get some insurance....getting a job at starbucks would be good.

Even if you got the job from submitting your comics I'm not sure that they provide insurance?? Is the pay enough to get you medical or dental help??

Its definately good to go through with the comics...but I think you need a "back-up" plan as well. I think your health needs to come first..... some income or insurance will help you get some answers.

Rachel,

I'm glad you posted tonight. I figured something was up.....like overdoing something and not feeling well. I was going to try and call tomorrow if you hadn't been online yet.

I think most of us are I want it done yesterday. :) Slow and steady.....your mom is right.

Good to see you back. :)

Dear Rachel,

I was feeling the same before the root canal. I do not think it had a bad affect on me. It is just, if you get your teeth removed, you have to get a partial. That does not include the fact cavitations allow just as much risk. As for the possibility of mercury toxicity, the only two sources I can think of are tuna and my mother giving it to me in utero. She has had metal fillings.

You know how you were talking about your eyes burning? I get that as well. It is terrible! My eyes burn and water something awful all the time! Even my own tears make my eyes burn!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

NoGluGirl, if you had any vaccines (ever!), nearly all of them (except for the MMR) contained mercury in the preservative thimerosal (which is 49.6% mercury) until the last couple of years. Also, some contact lens solutions and eye drops contained thimerosal until the mid-90's, when it was banned in all over-the-counter products (but was continued to be injected into children through vaccines).

Saw Dr. Carrie yesterday for a round of prolotherapy. I told her I was getting tested next week for Lyme...that started a little discussion. She said that H.Pylori can give a false positive on the lyme testing...I'm thinking she meant on one of the bands cuz I don't think it could on all the bands, but I didn't think to ask that until later. ANYWAY, she said it was a good thing we got that cleared up before I tested. I didn't know that they also do testing there too (I don't know if they use Igenix or not, but I would guess they do since they aren't very far from the lab, lol)--their testing runs $600 or so.

My injections were mostly in my elbows yesterday. There were hardly any spots in my neck for her to inject. Still, my neck hurts about the same as it has been. I told her that was one of the reasons why I wanted to pursue the lyme testing. I have or have had so many of the symptoms of it and the neck just never gets better no matter what kind of treatments I do.

She didn't say anything about my low lymphocytes. I figure I'll just wait and ask Dr. S when I see him next week.

I'm out of chlorella!! EEEK. I'll have to pick some up this morning at whole foods cuz last week BioSET didn't have any on their shelves. I don't want to take a chance on not having any at all.

I got my heavy metal results today.

Here they are.

MERCURY reference range 2.19 and my range is 28.40

She said that even if the challenge test pulled the mercury from the

teeth that it is still very high and thats not good. I don't know if I told you

that I get vaginal discharge when I smell sweets. This happened to

another woman who was also tested positive for mercury. She also

believes that I am dealing with candida as well.

Looks like it's off to the dentist for me. Then we will use the chelator with

chlorella she said but just to take it slow. It will take time to heal she said.

BISMUTH reference range 2.28 my range 13.24

This one might be due to the milk of magnesium I take at night

THORIUM reference range 4.189 mine 15.111

TIN ref range 2.04 mine 8.08

TUNGSTEN ref range 0.211 mine 1.221

URANIUM ref range 0.026 mine 0.407

So you think mercury is the cause? I am starting to believe.

They have challenged many people with almagams and they range a 6 or 7.

Why am I a 28.40 then?

Wow, definitely looks toxic to me too, lol.

It tastes good...orange flavor. :)

:lol: No Racheling of the gum!!! :lol: So, did you like the sauna? How do you feel today?

My sweat is just totally TOXIC....it cant get into my eyes at all or it will burn like heck.

My sweat is like that too...it burns like heck if it gets into my eyes...but it's not sticky and my tears aren't either. But I do get goopy eye stuff...feels like someone put in a thick gel, but there's nothing there. It doesn't feel sticky, it just makes my eyes water like crazy and they hurt.

That's interesting. I can't wait to hear about your appointment next week and your results of the testing. It'll be a long wait for me right along with you. :):wub:

That is so crazy! my tears burn my face too! I thought it was just my imagination. They also make small indentions where the tears roll down like a wrinkle. And there's red streaks on my face. I can't wear eye makeup no more because it burns my eyes.

Does anyone have hair loss and dull brittle hair as well and missed periods?

Yes! My hair falls out in droves, but fortunately I don't have any visible thinning spots...my hair is extremly dry and brittle. I do have my hair colored every 5 weeks or so and I blow dry almost every day, but even so, my hair was never dry or brittle until just the last 2-3 years. Even my hairdresser commented on it and she's been doing my hair for a while now. Don't know about missed period cuz I had a hysterectomy, but I had extremely heavy, painful periods that came about every 3 weeks...it was horrible.

I'm almost certain the burning tears is due to toxins. The stuff has gotta come out any way it can...even if through our tears. Can you imagine what toxic substances they might find if they tested our tears?? :blink:

Sometimes if I'm exposed to alot of perfume or if I eat stuff (like say 3 pieces of pie :P ) I'll get a dull film over my eyes which makes things sort of blurry for awhile.

I figured out that eye make-up was making things worse in the very beginning....its been more than 4 years since I've worn eye make-up. I also had to switch all of my face make-up, lipstick and lipgloss to more hypo-allergenic stuff which doesnt have alot of chemicals or certain other things I react to.

One of my first symptoms was hairloss. I was losing alot of hair all of a sudden. I still lose hair more than normal but its nothing noticeable to others. My hair is definately brittle since I got sick....it was never like this before...it was always soft....never dry.

I never missed periods but I did have very light ones....lasting 1-2 days....with alot of PMS which I had never experienced while healthy. This was all back when I still had the metals in and was still eating normal food. After my amalgams were removed...later on I went on the candida diet and my periods came back to normal...with no horrible PMS symptoms. Also...I stopped losing as much hair and my hair started getting thicker and softer again.

Right now things fluctuate for me...sometimes my hair is dryer than others...sometimes I'm losing alot...other times its not so bad. It all depends on whats going on with my body...what I'm eating or what treatments I'm on.

That was from the candida diet alone...not eating processed foods...it was a huge reduction in the amount of chemicals I was feeding my body....it made a very obvious difference. I had thought I was dying and then I was up...out of bed and painting my garage...doing yardwork...and feeling happy.

Definately not feeding candida and avoiding things like alcohol, cigarettes and processed foods made a huge difference for me. Its why I'm able to work now....the first 2 years I was in bed crying all the time and on state disability.

Right now you still have the amalgams....a huge source of mercury...so you're not going to really improve with anything until they come out. I'm curious what my results would be like if I took the DMPS challenge. I wonder if they would be as high as yours...higher...or not high at all. :unsure:

I would be scared if my results were normal or close to it...I'm scared if I take the test my body still wont excrete very well and all that mercury will just float around my system. This is why my Dr. hasnt given me the test yet. I'm gonna see him on Friday...so we'll see if he's changed his mind about giving me the test.

I ran out of chlorella last night and haven't taken any yet today, but have taken all my other supplements as usual, even my liquid B vitamins and all the other detox supplements, only I DID use about half of the Vit C crystals I usually use, but I did that yesterday too and still had noisy bowels and D. So far no D and no noisy bowels...my bowels have been so noisy for a few weeks now.

I stared at the shelf with the chlorella at Whole Foods, but ended up not buying any. They had the Sun brand, but it had soy lecithin in it. They had another one (Source Naturals--is that the one you got Rachel?--must go back and look, lol), but it was $34 and I was afraid to buy it without knowing more about it, lol. Hopefully Anna is restocked on hers, but I'm going to ask them about the D and noisy bowels before I do. It may be normal, but I want to make sure.

That is so crazy! my tears burn my face too! I thought it was just my imagination. They also make small indentions where the tears roll down like a wrinkle. And there's red streaks on my face. I can't wear eye makeup no more because it burns my eyes.

Does anyone have hair loss and dull brittle hair as well and missed periods?

I've never been able to wear eye makeup, but it's not a problem for me. I just think how much time and money I'm saving by not buying it! Besides, I have a theory that makeup causes wrinkles.

Think about it: you're rubbing chemicals into your most wrinkle-prone skin (near the eyes), and then, 16 hours later, you're using MORE chemicals to rub the first chemicals off. And then, the more wrinkly you get, the more makeup you use...

Tears sting me, too, but I think that is normal, isn't it? They're salt, and salt water definitely stings my eyes.

I had the falling-out, dry, brittle hair until my thyroid (I've had Hashimoto's for 20 years) was well-regulated (which didn't happen consistently until I stopped eating gluten, so I assume there's a connection there). It won't hold a perm AT ALL (it either goes limp or burns), and turned orange when colored, no matter who colored it or with what, so now I'm calling my white hairs (I have some! :blink: ), "highlights..." ;)

My periods were always like clockwork, but the cramping was much worse when I was on gluten.

Sorry, that doesn't really help you much, does it?

I am driving myself crazy (be thankful you don't have to live with me :lol: ) with doubt...what if this isn't lyme. What if whatever makes my watch batteries die after only a couple of months made Scott pick up lyme when it really isn't there? What if after spending all this money it isn't lyme. Egads, I need a drink or at least a chocolate bumble bar, lol. After spending all this money what if it IS lyme and I have to get treated and spend all that money. :lol:

See what I mean...this all came suddenly out of nowhere...okay, well maybe it was after reading a thread on LymeNet and the fact that I had to call for directions to get to the place on TUESDAY. :lol: What if the blood test is so negative that the doc can't even make a clinical diagnosis?

Donna,

I was exactly like this...constantly driving myself crazy with the questions. :wacko:

I'm sure I drove alot of other people crazy too. :P

I had the same worries, doubts and fears that you're having. Its totally normal. Right now all you've got is one ART test with Scott saying you have Lyme. I would be wanting alot more proof to convince me. <_< Well...you guys all pretty much witnessed my "thoroughness" ....I was racheling my diagnosis. :lol:

I still dont fell like I have any one thing totally proving Lyme. I guess since every test was indicating it and showing evidence of it....it was just a combination of everything to convince me that it must be there. Even though my Western Blots were equivocal I dont regret that I had the test. I did have some positive bands. I would have drove myself crazy with questions if I hadnt just went ahead and got it done.

The co-infection tests were even more money and they showed nothing....but still all the testing has been worth it to me. Right now I'm driving myself crazy about the DMPS challenge test and what those results might be if I ever get to take the test. :rolleyes:

Also....the C D -57....I want to have those numbers as well.

I dont worry about having to spend a ton of money treating Lyme....its all the *other* stuff that adds up for me. Right now all I've spent treating Lyme is basically $50 on Cats Claw....which I've had for several months now....and $35 bucks on Noni extract for Babesia. Getting rid of the mercury is whats gonna cost me the most. :(

All I know is that tears never burned me in the 31 years I was healthy. :unsure:

I never experienced any of this until I got poisoned. :(
