Stuff about mercury...

This makes is so difficult to wait over another year before I get my teeth taken care of. :( Just can't do it this year. The rise in prices is going to eat us alive as it is.

Dear Susie and Bev,

Yeah! We are the Tornado Trio! ;) It will be so exciting! We would have to make sure to go with a professional, though. I wish I could take credit for Twister Sisters, but that title was invented by two women who chase storms together already! My witch name is Weathr because of my affinity with weather. Plus, no Goddess names really fit me. :lol: My name is sacred to the Craft.

Dear Susie,

We love you goofball! :) You are fun to hang out with. If it were not for you, things would not be as interesting here in Rachelville. Everyone has their own wonderful qualities! Your humor and insights are greatly appreciated by us all!

Regarding the Pepe Le Pew Poo, I think that is a job for the Dookie Detectives! :lol: Or would the Poop Patrol be more fitting? Only in Rachelville can this exist! There is a lot of scientificness involved, and therefore, must be analyzed before making a decision. After all, it is of the utmost importance that the Diarrhea Diagnosticians be taken seriously!

Dear Jenny,

Your symptoms sound so much like mine! :o The GI issues especially are all too familiar. I went through a lot of misery as well to be told I was either crazy or just had IBS. I finally realized there is no way those morons in labcoats were right! The Celiac certainly has played a role in the suffering.

However, since a course of antibiotics, I returned to the horrible nausea and other things plaguing me once more. :( The reflux was unbearable for me before going gluten-free. I actually was taking twice the dosage of Prilosec a day and still had to sleep practically sitting straight up! After going gluten-free, I can sometimes even cheat and not take my second dose! The other day, I actually went more than 24 hours without it!

Dear Bev,

I do not think there is such a thing as too much information here either! :lol: As they said on "Scrubs", "It All Comes Down to Poo!" :lol::P Did you see that? It was hilarious! We have talked about Casper Crap, and so much more!

The possibilities are endless!

The potato chips can be an issue. Lay's Stax, as Carla mentioned, are safe. I am nervous about the flavored ones. I might try some and see if I tolerate them. The plain ones taste just like Pringles, but without the gluten! They are delicious!

Dear Andrea,

You got it! My appointment is the 5th of June, the same day as Judy's! I will be sure to keep what you told me in mind. I will have to order the kit, then have the blood drawn at the doctor's office and shipped directly to IgeniX from there?

Is that how that goes?

I am sorry to hear you are having such difficulty with Talitha. My friend Jacqui said her daughter's personality has changed suddenly. She said she was the poster child for kids, then just some weeks ago, it changed. Her daughter is acting out all of the time. I think it is either the gluten she is eating at school, or Lyme she may have gotten from Jacqui if she has it.

Dear Laura,

Thanks for adding the bugs and viruses! That is an important part of the Lyme spectrum. We do not want to neglect those! Lyme is linked to so many things! It is evil! :angry:

Dear Rachel,

I am glad you explained the mercury issue more. It makes a lot of sense. Some people just do not naturally chelate. Others are impaired by factors such as illness and environmental exposure. There are quite a few pieces to that puzzle.

Dear Donna,

I am glad you finally got to paint your toes! It always makes me feel better getting pretty! I love make-up! I am getting some new make-up tomorrow. I may go to the grocery as well! They have Lay's Stax on sale! Yay!

Dear Patti,

I am sorry you are still itchy. That is a bummer. At least you have an idea of what the cause was now, though. With frail systems like ours, the slightest difference can be trouble! This is so unfair! Hopefully you will start to see a difference soon!

Dear Robbin,

It is nice to see you again! How are you doing? We are glad you have come back to Rachelville! It is wonderful to have others pop in! Feel free to visit more often!

Dear Lisa,

I know it is difficult waiting on your teeth to be finished. Your system is having a lot of trouble. The chelation cannot occur until you have removed the amalgams. The mercury will continue to leach into your system while they are in there! We understand your frustration, but know going slow is the best thing.

Dear Carla,

I hope Morgan's health does not suffer for waiting! Maybe she will be lucky and not have Lyme? We can hope, anyway. I am having a tough time giving up sugar, but do not eat as much of it as I used to. I did have chocolate chip cookies yesterday, and I was in heaven.

That is, until they made me queasy. They were gluten and dairy free, but I do not think it was the cookies so much, but maybe because I waited to long to eat. I was extremely hungry by then. I get sick if I wait too long to eat, too. My blood sugar gets low. They probably had too much fat, though. That did not help any.

Dear Judy,

I am pulling for you! I hope you post your Western Blot results. The ladies on here could help interpret them. I am curious. Do it when you can!

Dear Patti and Judy,

Which one of you mentioned the other day about those toaster bags? I saw those at the Kinnickinnick site. They are a good price. They would be helpful! We certainly do not have enough room for two toasters on the counter! I was pretty sure it was one of you two who mentioned this. I forgot to respond, though. It is difficult to keep up with this thread the way the new format is.

Dear Everybody,

I got my new cookware set the other day. It is stainless steel. Although it is not easy to clean, it is great! The food tastes better! That nonstick coating was making me dizzy and queasy smelling it while I cooked. I got my set at Wal-Mart. It is by Tramontina. I have a dutch oven, two different sauce pans (and their lids), plus a skillet! They were only $22.88.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Yay on the new cookware. Better a little more work than making yourself sick. :P

As far as Igenex I believe if you take the paperwork in that the doctor would mail it out. Carla would know for sure though since she did this.

Wheat I knew about since my doctor told me. Carrots and lettuce. :blink: Are we to assume that organic would be ok? :unsure: I hope, I hope, I hope. Course you still have runoff I'm sure. :rolleyes:

Andrea...dont know about the carrots and lettuce?? :unsure:

I cant eat carrots at all...I never could figure out exactly why...is it the Auxigro?? :unsure: Or maybe something they put on the baby carrots which are packaged?? Or is it this...something about mercury?? :unsure: Is it mold?? WTH??? :huh:

There is just too many possibilities...all I really know is carrots are NOT ok for me. <_<

The mercury contaminated grains has come up lots of times before but every time I have to wonder WHY??? Why on earth do they willingly and knowingly use a toxic substance to "protect" the crops?? :huh:

More mercury stuff....

Allergies

If you have allergies to foods, it is best to avoid them during the first three months of treatments. This is especially true if you react to grains since many of them are treated with a mercury fungicide. You might be reacting to the fungicide and not to the grain.

GREAT....if its not the fungus itself...then its the darned poison to get rid of the fungus. I just cant win! :angry:

My oats are gone....I'm grainless once again. :rolleyes:

Andrea....no more bad news tonight.....I promise. ;)

This is regarding chelation with DMPS...

How soon will I feel better?

You will probably begin to feel worse, first! The DMPS causes mercury to mobilize in your system, disrupts its stability and exacerbates your symptoms. But as there is less and less mercury in your system, you begin to notice that your symptoms will gradually lessen and finally disappear.

How long does it take for the symptoms to go away?

Much of that will depend on how long you have been sick, how much mercury you are storing in your body, and how you react to the treatment. Most patients will conclude their therapy anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.

What are the side effects of the therapy?

Sometimes your symptoms will appear to worsen for a few days as the mercury mobilizes. Other side effects include flu-like symptoms. You should be carefully monitored for worsening symptoms or new symptoms.

Will I be completely normal again?

In most cases, yes. :) However, many people suffer the destruction of mercury toxicity for years and years. Some of that damage, for instance to your liver or brain, may not be 100 percent recovered. Only time will answer that question.

Sounds pretty good to me...the Dr. already said my liver wont be 100% again...but it'll be close...I'm cool with that. B)

YAY!!!

I know how muh you wanted new cookware...I'm glad you were able to swing it. :)

I got my new stuff....what is that French word?? :unsure:

I think its "Le Creuset" or something like that....I've used them a few times already....LOVE it. :D

I'm kinda scared by how heavy they are though :blink:

Good thing I've got some muscles on me cuz these pots and pans are like weights!! I could totally work out with my cookware!! :P

They are multi-functional. :D

Andrea...dont know about the carrots and lettuce?? :unsure:

I can't eat carrots either. I tested very low for them but they don't like me or Seth (or maybe it was just Seth....I don't remember). I do eat lots of lettuce though.

Now I wonder how much of our "problems with most grains" come from being treated. We do well with rice. The only corn we eat is in corn flakes for the most part.

Dear Andrea and Carla,

Thank you for the information on the IgeniX testing. I will make sure to do exactly what I am supposed to. That is, assuming my doctor knows how to interpret the results. It is also assuming she does not think I am a hypochondriac. Meanwhile, I am happy I atleast know the procedure!

Dear Andrea and Rachel,

I love my new cookware! I agree that the effort is worth it. Since I have the Dawn Power Disolver and Brillo pads, that helps! I called on the Brillo Soap Pads last week. I am so glad they are safe!

Dear Rachel,

I am glad my pans are light. However, I get a pretty good workout with our dog. He is always wanting carried. So, I lift him a lot. He weighs 7.5 pounds, which is not too much. Even so, I think he has helped me build strength in my arms. The other day, I move a whole box of lead chrystal for my mom. I never used to have that strength in my arms!

Sincerely,

Jin

P.S. For a good laugh, I decided in case you have not seen that "Scrubs" episode, here is a link. Go to http://tv.netscape.com/story/2007/01/18/sc...es-down-to-poo/ so that you can view it. Just click the "Play Video" part! Zach Braff is even cute singing about poo! How many guys can you say that about?

Dear Rachel,

I thought you might enjoy that line about Pepe Le Pew Poo and Dookie Detectives! :lol: There are so many fun combinations we can create! Speaking of dreams, I had one as well. It was all about food, as usual! :lol: If it makes you feel any better, I would worry if you went missing! :(

Lisa....heres some stuff you can keep in mind while trying to get through everything right now...

Avoid

Items to avoid that are harder to digest or have little nutritional value are refined foods, processed foods, fast foods, fried or visibly greasy foods.

Fish

Avoid fish and seafood at all costs! The majority of fish and seafood are known to have heavy metals, including mercury. Do not eat any!

Allergies

If you have allergies to foods, it is best to avoid them during the first three months of treatments. This is especially true if you react to grains since many of them are treated with a mercury fungicide. You might be reacting to the fungicide and not to the grain.

Water

This nutrient is essential for chemical reactions, cleansing, and optimal body function in the brain, kidneys, liver and GI tract. Use filtered or distilled water. Avoid straight tap water since it can have lead, aluminum, PVC, mercury, copper, and other chemicals and metals. These only add more stress to your already stressed state. Drink at least one 8-ounce glass of water every hour throughout the day.

Sunshine

This is a regulator of your circadian rhythms (the cycle of hormones that regulates metabolism and organ function). It also stimulates your skin to produce vitamin D. It is recommended that you have 15 to 20 minutes of exposure per day. Besides that, it feels good!

Activity

Exercise, even if you feel you cannot. Just walk. Walk around the block if that is all you can do. Ride a stationary bicycle or treadmill (it's a great way to catch up on movies you might have missed). You must exercise. Advance slowly. If you are able, lift weights. When you exercise, you tone your muscles and organs. The tissues in the muscles break down and release the cellular toxins and you body is better able to cleanse itself and rebuild healthy tissue.

You should have 20 minutes of exercise per day, 3 days a week. Increase to exercising every day for 20 minutes and then begin to increase the duration and the intensity of the exercise. Variety will keep you interested. An exercise partner will help you be faithful.

Sleep

Choose a regular pattern of sleep. Your body and brain repair themselves during sleep. Your body sleeps better (deeper and more restful) the hours before midnight. It is best to be in bed by 10:00 p.m. If you awaken early, do not get up if it is before 5:00 a.m. Try to fall asleep again. Even if you are awake, stay in bed until after 5:00. This will help you develop a natural rhythm and pattern that your body will begin to follow. Be consistent. You should get between 8 and 9 hours of sleep every night. Also, maintain your sleep schedule even on weekends and vacations.

Bowels

Mercury and other toxins are eliminated in the stool more than in the urine. Constipation is your worst enemy. If the toxins stay in your bowels for too long, then they will be reabsorbed.

It is recommended that you have one or two stools a day. However, this is not always possible if you are not eating much. Just make sure they are consistent (once every 2 or 3 days) and soft.

Do not take laxatives since they can cause an imbalance in the absorption process in the GI tract. Stool softeners and bulking agents are preferred. Drinking all the water your body requires helps a great deal, too. And, vitamin C will also help remove mercury

Supplements

If you have found supplements, through trial and error, that make you feel better or function better in daily life

From Klinghardts "9 Steps To Detox From Mercury Fillings"

The Klinghardt Neurotoxin Elimination Protocol

http://www.hbci.com/~wenonah/new/9steps.htm

I've referred to this page countless times...and still learn stuff from it.

Here is part of his program for detox...

High protein, mineral, fatty acid and fluid intake

Rationale:

Proteins provide the important precursors to the endogenous metal detox and shuttle agents, such as coeruloplasmin, metallothioneine, glutathione and others. The branched-chain amino acids in cow and goat whey have valuable independent detox effects.

(My Dr. currently has me on whey protein.....as does Lisa's)

Metals attach themselves only in places that are programmed for attachment of metal ions. Mineral deficiency provides the opportunity for toxic metals to attach themselves to vacant binding sites.

A healthy mineral base is a prerequisite for all metal detox attempts (selenium, zinc, manganese, germanium, molybdenum etc.). Substituting minerals can detoxify the body by itself. Just as important are electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium), which help to transport toxic waste across the extra-cellular space towards the lymphatic and venous vessels.

(Dr. Amy has me on the multi-minerals....both the whey and the minerals also contain eloctrolytes.)

Lipids (made from fatty acids) make up 60

jenny,

do you have health insurance? if you do, you should be able to do a number of tests through a standard doctor... you can have your blood tested for vitamin levels, hormone levels, serotonin, etc. as well as thyroid testing... you may find some levels that could benefit from supplementation and improve to some extent upon boosting any deficient levels...

there's other simple tests you can do that might benefit you for the time being like the candida spit test and a ph test using ph strips... I haven't done either test so I can't vouch for them but it's something that you could check out and won't cost you money...

and as you've been doing, you can see improvement in symptoms without necessarily directly treating an underlying condition... this is what I was doing for the past 15 months until I finally got a diagnosis of lyme disease through a positive blood test with Igenex last month... I saw improvement in a number of areas through dieting, taking supplements, a mostly regular sleep schedule, and exercise and physical activity the past few months as I was again able to do so... so continuing along the same lines of what you're doing now might be your best option while saving up money to do some further testing...

at this point, I would recommend doing no further food intolerance testing because I think your food intolerances (for the most part at least) are likely the result of a compromised system from some unidentified root cause(s)... I'd be inclined to think for a couple reasons (cost, accessibility, diagnostic efficacy, and likelihood to play a part in your situation) that the Igenex IGG and IGM Western Blots would be the best test to run when you get the money... the cost would be $190 though you might also have to pay out of pocket for a doctor depending on what doctor you are able to get to authorize and draw the blood for the testing...

it might also be beneficial for you to do a general parasite test and these are relatively cheap (if I recall right, I don't think you'd be paying more than $150 and it might be less than that)... you can get a candida test done along with most parasite tests as well.. I did these tests through a nutritionist who used a couple labs for the tests..

in regards to lyme disease and ticks, I don't even remember getting bit by a tick (except for once as a kid)... seems to be the case for a respectable percentage of people who test positive for lyme...

and as for not being able to take vitamins now, it might just be that the ones you've tried aren't as hypoallergenic as some others... some of the better vitamins might cost a bit more but won't have a lot of the filler ingredients and additives in other vitamins... I was hit or miss with different vitamins last year as I was trying to find ones my body agreed with and I seem to do good with the brand "Pure"... don't know what brands are sold at stores in your area...

oh, and carla, thanks for breaking up her post... I also have trouble reading posts that aren't broken up into small paragraphs...

Susan...I'm sure you can relate. ;)

But nooo...my boss did not follow through on this. :P

Although today when I told her that just cuz I cant eat anything doesnt make me "crippled"....she said "Well...once I take you outside and smack you around...you WILL be." :rolleyes:

Charlie,

Great post....all very good advice for Jenny and I totally agree with everything you said....well...except for the candida spit test. :P

I think the spit test is not diagnostic of candida and can be influenced by many things.....alot of people with no illness whatsoever will test positive...people have even tested their pets...and guess what...they have candida too!! :o

Well...we all do have candida...its a part of us...so I'm not sure what the test proves??

I just think its a bogus test.

I totally agree that further food intolerance testing isnt useful...it wasnt helpful for me at all. It doesnt get to the root of the problem and since with leaky gut intolerances are constantly manifesting and changing...testing isnt really beneficial...that was my experience anyway.

Its also only focusing on symptoms of disease rather than the cause of disease itself...as you stated.

I saw improvement in a number of areas through dieting, taking supplements, a mostly regular sleep schedule, and exercise and physical activity the past few months as I was again able to do so... so continuing along the same lines of what you're doing now might be your best option while saving up money to do some further testing...

This is exactly what I did for about a year and a half...I got myself well enough to return to work. I focused on diet (candida diet.. no sugar, processed foods, organic, etc), spending time outside working in my yard, doing saunas, avoiding chemicals, lots of rest, lots of water, positive thoughts and antifungals.

This is what I did until I was able to get with some really knowledgeable Dr.'s.

Try going to "Options" at the top right hand side....go down to display modes and set it on "standard". See if that helps. ;)

Dear Susie,

Yep! I am a lunatic! A laughing lunatic! :lol: Scatology is a new word for me! :lol: Hence, I now know the word for "the study of crap." :lol:

That is wonderful news about Stinker! I am so glad to hear she is doing better! Tasha Bear was a lot like her. She went through a lot, but managed to survive. Animals truly are amazing!

Dear Judy,

I thought it was you who mentioned the bags! I know you always type in caps, and that is why I thought it was probably you and not Patti. The bags would definitely be worth getting. Then I could have toast again once in a while! :) I had no idea QVC sold stuff like that! Thank you for the information!

Dear Rachel,

I took the information you provided on the mercury sources and pasted it into Word. It is now in my Health Folder. I also bookmarked the link you gave us. I would not be surprised if I had mercury poisoning, because there are times where I have eaten 12 oz. (2 whole cans) of tuna per week!

That would be hilarious if you put "Official Constipation Consultant of Rachelville" on your signature! :lol: People will be like "WTH?" :blink: That is so funny! Plus, Susie could teach at Rachelville University. She will be a Professor of Scatology! :lol: We will have a sign that says "Our professor knows her crap!" :lol:

I cannot believe that customer you had! Retail does suck. My brother used to work at Wal-Mart. He was there for six or seven years. Chad does not recommend anyone getting into retail, because it has not been a good experience.

Thank you for clearing up the funky screen issue! I thought the forum changed its format. It was harder to keep up with everyone the way it was. It was either the outline format, or the linear one. Whatever it was, I did not like it! I did what you told me, and now it is back to normal!

Sincerely,

Jin

just a quick goodmorning to all---still reading along.

i'm off to an IV and an impromptu drs visit...having some other issues...then off to my first visit with a PT.

on top of all this, I've had D for the past four days. I think its because I added alinia for three days. Delightful.

I still owe a catch up post, but tonight we are going out of town AGAIN. The next two weekends after we are home, and I am so excited. I need to rest!

I'll write more...eventually ;). Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. R-happy you got an app't with Dr. A.
