Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Left overs are a no no . Its even better if you buy meat or fish fresh to freeze it first before you cook it to kill certain bacteria etc. that is naturally ocurring but can be harmful.

yesturday I was walking done the street and this guy passed by with a corona t- shirt on but there was just a small corona logo the t-shirts main thing was a take off of those milk ads and In big bold letters it said "GOT LIME?" I thought of all of us and started laughing people probably thought I was loony bins

Now THAT is interesting. I HATE the heat. Anything above 85 makes me feel like I'm gonna die. When I say I am "cold" it's more that I have chills. I used to be able to tolerate heat but now it makes me feel like arse.

I've never been able to take the heat, but then again, I've had this a VERY long time!

I have to be very careful when I'm out in the heat and drink LOTS of water. Last year we went to King's Island water park (we had season tickets), and went we got to the gate, I was already having heat exhaustion. Adam bought me some kind of Powerade, which always helps a bit.

I wonder why this is? :unsure: Maybe it gets our bodies too hot and the Lyme doesn't like it.

Just trying to figure out what else might be keeping me from getting well. Still incredibly fatigued from the littlest thing. I've come to accept having to sit down and rest twice just while making a simple freaking salad. :(

And too many days where I can't think. And this and that - we've heard it all before.

I hope you find some answers soon. Have you been tested for heavy metals? The cold hands makes it seem like metals could be an issue.

For some reason I dont see your avatars anymore. Its just a blank space. :huh:

Been that way for at least a week now...both my computer and my moms.

Carla...you've become INVISIBLE!! :P

Am I the only one? I didn't change ANYTHING until yesterday. :blink:

When is Murph going to put up a picture??? Thus far we don't know if Murph is a he or a she! ;)

You will be proud of me! I Carla'd the candy bars today! :) I was good! I did not eat too much. Mostly, I ate extra lean ground beef and some GV pasta sauce that is gluten-free! I also had some fruit. I am improving.

I love to paint with acrylics as well! Have you heard of Donna Dewberry's One-Stroke Painting? It is so fun! You still have to practice it, but it is so beautiful! She makes it so easy!

No, I haven't painted for years.

Good job on the candy bars.

:lol::lol::lol:

Very little of the mercury scientificness describes me, though I think it may have back when I had amalgams. Thankfully, I took care of that years ago so I can focus on the Lyme now.

I'm only taking one pill three times per day of the amoxy. I have to build up to four before I can start chelating. I'm wondering which is more important, the chelating or the building up to four pills. I'm anxious to chelate ... I wonder if it could be contributing to my hanging onto these toxins and feeling like I'm in a constant state of herx. Or maybe it's just that the form of the borrelia that the amoxy gets is the problem ... maybe I have just too much of it.

Okay, so I'm weird...I'm cold all the time, but I can't stand the heat...what does THAT mean!? :lol: I know...weirdo. :P

I just skimmed ... I got a letter from my insurance company this week asking if I had other insurance that is also covering my treatment (we don't).

I haven't turned in any LLMD bills because I don't want them to know I have a Lyme diagnosis. I didn't turn in my IGeneX test either. So far, they've been covering the meds ... but I don't think they actually know what I have.

They also cover my monthly blood work.

I found the letter curious.

This is kinda weird...if I have to do actual meds/antibiotics I don't think I'll use my regular pharmacy and won't give them my insurance info, but I have turned in my LLMD visits and the Igenix and other testing...at least they can see that I wasn't ONLY tested for lyme. :P

Donna and Carla -- the toxins - you can switch to acrylics - DID I SAY THAT??? - - or watercolor. I hate acrylics....but they don't stink, at least....I still paint in oils, toxins be damned!

I can't get acrylics to do what I want...and I've even tried it with the mediums that they make for acrylics...but then the chemical thing comes in again. Watercolor...I just gave up on that, lol...I need to COVER up my mistakes and you just can't do it with watercolor. :P

The one I still need to retest is my Transfer Factor. I took it the same time I was taking Vitamin C. After 2 days I stopped both...not knowing which was the culprit behind the mouth blisters. I've since found out its Vitamin C....so I gotta retry the Transfer Factor and see how I do.

I think I've done okay on the Transfer Factor...I've been taking 1 before bed, but Scott wants me to try 2 before bed. Done that the last two nights and so far so good.

From Dr. Klinghardts lecture on mercury that I posted earlier in the year...

Thanks for the info again...I think this was the post that woke me up a few months ago. :P

Scott did a pretty good impression of Dr. Klinghardt on Saturday. :lol:

Now THAT is interesting. I HATE the heat. Anything above 85 makes me feel like I'm gonna die. When I say I am "cold" it's more that I have chills. I used to be able to tolerate heat but now it makes me feel like arse.

Yes, this describes me EXACTLY!!!

Just trying to figure out what else might be keeping me from getting well. Still incredibly fatigued from the littlest thing. I've come to accept having to sit down and rest twice just while making a simple freaking salad.

And too many days where I can't think. And this and that - we've heard it all before.

I have lyme brain...can't remember if you've said what all you've been tested for... afraid to go back in this thread. :ph34r::blink:

Donna and Susan....love the artwork. I've never done any painting...I dont think I'm too creative with drawing and things like that. I'm really creative with scrapbooking though.

I wish I could post some of my scrapbook pages. Eventually I'm gonna need a 12x12 scanner for sure. Gotta get myself detoxed first....all the fun stuff is on the back burner.

Yes, hurry up and detox so we can see your scrapbooking stuff! :P

I'm gonna repost this lecture by Dr. Klinghardt which is probably my favorite and I learned alot from it.

Well that's it then...the mercury has gone to my head. :P I hope that's what's causing the insomnia and that it will go away when I detox. My hands and feet are pretty much cold all the time, but I can be sweating elsewhere.

I swear I've had leftovers' mold affect me after just ONE hour - was having sort of "late seconds" I suppose more than true leftovers.

I'm fine w/ stuff I put in the freezer before it's cooled down much tho.

I wouldn't doubt that at all! I have to make my lunches for the week ahead of time...there isn't any way I could cook in the morning before work, so I make all my lunches for the week on Sunday, but I put them individually in the freezer right away. I usually make ground beef or turkey with broccoli....so I use the frozen broccoli in the container first then put the meat directly from the hot pan on top of that then put a lid on and then directly into the freezer. So far that's worked pretty well for me.

hey rachel it says no eggs. but we eat eggs everyday.

Yeah...I was curious about the eggs the first time I read that too. Its the only anti-mold/candida list I've ever seen eggs on.

Eggs can contain mycotoxins if the chickens were fed a bunch of moldy grains. I've had problems with eggs in the past. I'm doing really well with the ones I'm eating now which are organic, free range...veggie fed.

I've also had problems with chicken for the same reason...I'm hypersensitive and some chicken has given me some bad reactions....totally toxic.

Andrea...I forgot to tell you!!!! That Rosie chicken must be loaded with mycotoxins. :blink:

I couldnt eat any of it w/out feeling gross and all swollen. I never saw another organic brand at WF until last week. I bought this other brand....it LOOKS different....it COOKS different....it TASTES way better!!

AND....I dont get any symptoms from it!!! :D

That other chicken is toxic....I think thats why it looks more "yellow" and its very sticky and rubbery compared to the stuff I'm getting now...which actually has good flavor and isnt sticky at all. The Rosie chicken was making my head swell same as if I was eating nuts or corn chips. :blink:

.....

I love your painting! It is wonderful! The bird is very pretty, too. You have talent! You should keep it up!

......

Dear Rinne,

The Candida really does feel like it is running the show! I hate this! I am so annoyed about it. When I eat fruit, it seems to irritate my system more than the other stuff does. I have no clue why that would be.

....

Donna, I completely agree with jin, your paintings are wonderful. As I said before, I think Rachelville definitely needs an art gallery. :)

Jin, I find that fruit is worse for me than semi-sweet chocolate. Curious.

....

I'm all grrrr right now because I don't have an avocado. It would be perfect for a cold-smoked salmon (no brown sugar like regular smoked salm) & cado & red onion wrap using a brown rice tortilla. I have it all 'cept the cado. Oh and I've got the romaine. And EVOO & fresh squeezed lemon juice. Yum, but the avocado is crucial.

I have the avocado :P but no smoked salmon :( and can't really do the brown rice tortilla :(:( but it sounds delicious and I would definitely agree on the red onion. :lol:

....

Lyme has the ability to change our temperature, long term Lymies are often very cold, so I tend to think if Lyme doesn't like something it lets us know.

I'm the same way these days, I often feel slightly chilled but heat makes me feel sick and I don't like the bright light.

Even I can't eat the Rosie chicken! Maybe I'll look for the other brand at WF and try it. I'm waiting for my BioSET treatment to take hold before I go gunho on it though...chicken tested badly for me at BioSET.

Donna, I completely agree with jin, your paintings are wonderful. As I said before, I think Rachelville definitely needs an art gallery.

Why thank you! Will post more later...

Oh for an avocado! I miss them. :(

jin- I am Pitta-Vata. It's pretty fitting.

rinne- This is me to a tee:I'm the same way these days, I often feel slightly chilled but heat makes me feel sick and I don't like the bright light.

It's like I want to be warm but then I get heat and I feel sick. I last about 5 minutes in a hot bath, hot tub, sauna, etc.

Well, lets see. You've posted that lyme is a problem. Rachel has posted that a little mercury can hold up a lot of lyme (I think that was the order :unsure: ). Those could be part of the problem but I suspect the borrelia more.

That other chicken is toxic....I think thats why it looks more "yellow" and its very sticky and rubbery compared to the stuff I'm getting now...which actually has good flavor and isnt sticky at all. The Rosie chicken was making my head swell same as if I was eating nuts or corn chips. :blink:

I've also read that the "yellow" chickens are fed a high grain diet (corn). The corn turns the skin yellow. I've only seen rosie chicken at Wild Oats. I still like what I order from us wellness meats. We are out of chicken and can't order again til August so it will be sheltons turkey products and beef for us till then.

Yep, this has been happening to me too. The bubble/epsom salt bath I took on Tuesday was so hot I could only stay in there 10 minutes...that was too long...I should have added a little cold water so I could soak longer.

I still like what I order from us wellness meats. We are out of chicken and can't order again til August so it will be sheltons turkey products and beef for us till then.

They had some flyers at BioSET for US Wellness stuff...I think there was a little discount or maybe free shipping or something...I may consider ordering something from them.

Shipping is included in the prices (or it's free). They add a processing fee of $7.50 to each order. They have really good meat. They were recommended on Mercola's site which is how I found out about them.

Do you have a big freezer that you could order a larger quantity to save. They give $25 discounts for each 40 pound increment as well.

I didn't come on till late this morning, and had something like 5 pages to read :o

Lots of good chat and interesting stuff (thanks, Rachel--always like to read your scientificness).

Carla--your hair looks cute curly, too. That's the one thing I can't do as well anymore since I've had it chemically straightened. I used to wear it natural quite frequently, especially in the summer, but now it"s not curly enough! (never thought I'd be able to say that :lol: )

About the heat--I can't take hot baths, saunas, or steam. After just a very few minutes, I get nauseous and woozy. We have a beautiful hot tub (it came with the house) and in the 7 years we've lived here, I've never used it. Mark and the guys like it, though.

It literally feels like the heat goes up into my head and causes pressure--that's the only way to describe it. Rather overwhelming...

The hot weather in the summer--especially the humidity--kills me. I'm with Andrea, I couldn't live without air conditioning. I'd much rather be cold and put on more clothes than be hot--I get very anxious when I'm hot.

Ok...so I just keep reading. It seems like diet is a HUGE part of why some get mercury toxic while others do not. Of course there are other factors but diet is pretty big.

The amino acids and minerals are ESSENTIAL for detoxing heavy metals and other toxins. Mostly Glutathione and cysteine. These amino acids are both in the whey protein my Dr. has me taking.

Nutritional status is relevant for several reasons.

First, certain nutrients are natural chelators of mercury. Chelators chemically bind to metals, minerals, & chemical toxins to help remove them from the body via the urine or bowel movements. Those with better nutritional status will be able to keep removing mercury rather than accumulating toxic levels.

These natural chelators are alpha lipoic acid ; amino acids, especially cysteine, methionine, glutathione & taurine ( amino acids are parts of protein foods) ; selenium; garlic; cilantro; & chlorella algae.

Significant levels of all minerals, Vitamin C, & Vitamin E also help to protect against the toxic effects & accumulation of mercury. Adequate dietary fiber increases acidophilus, bifidus, & other beneficial gut microflora which in turn metabolizes the very toxic methylmercury to the less toxic inorganic form & increases mercury excretion.

Toxic metals use some of the same binding sites in the cells as do amino acids & minerals. One way they exert their toxic effects is by binding to those sites & interfering with mineral & amino acid functions in the body. Likewise, if plenty of amino acids & minerals are present they can effectively compete with the toxic metal for the binding site--giving the metal no place to settle in & making it therefore more available for excretion--as it is unbound.

I've read alot about this in the past....if a person isnt getting sufficient minerals and amino acids in their diet....it leaves room for mercury to settle in.

I know in my case I got hit with alot of mercury in a short time so I dont know that I wouldnt have gotten sick anyway....but still...my diet was very very poor. Mostly grains...no veggies...no fresh meat....no fresh fruit. All processed food...basically "dead" food...void of nutrition. :(

PLUS....grains contain mercury themselves. :o

The interference with the amino acid & mineral metabolism mentioned above can be damaging enough. But mercury also poisons somes enzyme systems.

Enzymes promote chemical reactions & must be present & functioning properly , different enzymes for different chemical reactions.

Mercury also alters the permeability of the membrane of the cells, it replaces structurally or electrochemically important elements in the cells, it blocks sodium currents, inhibits the transport of sugars, inhibits amino acid absorption in the brain, inhibits the synaptic uptake of neurotransmitters in the brain & can cause brain atrophy & cerebellar degeneration.

This is only a parial list of the toxic effects.

Those with chronic mercury overload are more prone to immune system dysfunction such as autoimmune disease or decreased immunity..

They are more prone to chronic candida & other chronic infections. They have more allergies & more hormonal imbalances. There may be a greater incidence of mouth & tongue soreness & gastrointestinal symptoms.

So this is mainly why Dr. Amy wants me to load up on minerals and Dr. S has me on the Whey Protein. She had said this was to prepare my body for chelation. You have to have plenty of minerals stored up in order to let go of the metals. When I first got on NDF she said my body had no preparation...so we're getting prepared with the stuff I'm doing now.

Is anyone else taking any kind of glutathione??

What Is Glutathione?

"Glutathione is a very interesting, very small molecule that's [produced by the body and] found in every cell," says Gustavo Bounous, MD, director of research and development at Immunotec and a retired professor of surgery at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. "It's the [body's] most important antioxidant because it's within the cell."

Antioxidants -- the most well known of which are vitamins C and E -- are important for good health because they neutralize free radicals, which can build up in cells and cause damage. Because glutathione exists within the cells, it is in a prime position to neutralize free radicals. It also has potentially widespread health benefits because it can be found in all types of cells, including the cells of the immune system, whose job is to fight disease.

Glutathione occurs naturally in many foods, and people who eat well probably have enough in their diets, says Dean Jones, PhD, professor of biochemistry and director of nutritional health sciences at Emory University in Atlanta. Those with diets high in fresh fruits and vegetables and freshly prepared meats are most likely just fine. On the other hand, those with poor diets may get too little.

What Does Glutathione Do?

The strong antioxidant effect of glutathione helps keep cells running smoothly. Bounous and another glutathione expert, Jeremy Appleton, ND, say it also helps the liver remove chemicals that are foreign to the body, such as drugs and pollutants.

Appleton is chairman of the department of nutrition at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Ore., and senior science editor for Healthnotes, a database on complementary and alternative medicine available at newspaper stands and health food stores.

Evidence for the important role that glutathione plays in health comes from studies in people who are severely ill.

"If you look in a hospital situation at people who have cancer, AIDS, or other very serious disease, almost invariably they are depleted in glutathione," says Appleton. "The reasons for this are not completely understood, but we do know that glutathione is extremely important for maintaining intracellular health."

How Should Glutathione Be Taken?

Glutathione is probably not well absorbed into the body when taken by mouth. One way to get around that is to take it by vein. A more practical solution is to take the precursors -- that is, the molecules the body needs to make glutathione -- rather than glutathione itself. While there is no solid proof this works, the consensus among experts is that that doing so will increase the amount of glutathione in the cells.

Bounous has developed a glutathione-enhancing product called Immunocal, which is made up of glutathione precursors, mainly the amino acid cysteine.

I'm taking a precurser to glutathione (N-A-C)

Alot of Dr.'s do IV's...and have had good results.

Carla...there is a thread on LymeNet about glutathione and it seems like the results are very good.

Heres part of the post...

...Dr H. closed his talk on a hopeful note, mentioning that for the first time in 20 years, he has seen evidence of a possible treatment solution occurring right before his eyes, "in my office during the last 30 days." A patient had come in who suffered from Lou Gehrig's disease, and was given

glutathione by intravenous injection to remove heavy metals stored in his brain

cells.

"Neurotoxins produced by the Borrelia spirochete, or Lyme disease bacterium,

also interact with heavy metals in our cells," Dr H pointed out.

After being given the IV dose, the patient showed 90 percent improvement

within ten minutes. His joint pain was gone and his cognitive symptoms improved

markedly.

"We repeated the experiment doing a double blind test with saline instead of

the glutathione," Dr H said, adding that the results were encouraging

and consistent.

"All these chemicals in our bodies cause inflammation, and glutathione seems

to act like a sponge that pulls them out. I'm very excited about this."

and some other posts...

I received Glutathione as part of my treatment, back several years ago, and it is also now part of the Phosopholipid Exchange protocol with Essentiale N that is done in many practices. The lipid protocol starts with 1800 mg Glutathione IV over 2 minutes. Some doctors treating neurodegenerative diseases are now starting higher and daily.

Glutathione has to be refrigerated to avoid oxydization. So one needs to be careful especially in summer.

Of course, it's best to be energy tested (ART in my case) before using it. It if works, it works. It does not work for everyone.

I am surprised that this is just now being discovered by some. The work came out of an Italian study now quite a few years ago.

Immunocal and ImmunePro are popular, but I have my doubts about their effect as compared to IV glutathione--which goes right into the vein in pure form. I have noticed a good effect when I get my chaser--after my IV is down to about 20 cc, we put the glutathione in for the last few minutes. Of course, I'm only doing it every other week and only 1000 mg.

Glutathione push and iv has been used for years by the environmental doctors to detox

patients and help jump start the immune system.

Some sensitive folks can not take it orally and may do better with shot. Best to go slowly as it detoxes the body quickly.

Speak of the devil,

i just got glutathione today in fact. I got 2 1/2 cc of dmps, followed by 8 1/2 cc of glutathione over a few minutes, and then followed by a bag of Vit C. I had a fairly good day, did errands for about 5 hours and im taking lots of apple pectin to bind .

I will be starting glutathione inhalantion, but i am waiting to get my nebulizer. This is by the advice of Dr. Klinghardt.

I do believe glutathione is an excellent way to detox, and when you are taking protien poweders especially whey the body will make gluatathione from the branched chain amino acids, as many of you are aware of.

Im glad some of you are coming around to the idea of detox, its the only way.

Just got off the phone with dr.H. He says the clinical trials they're doing in his office are quite promising...he thinks they have hit on something big. He hasn't found the IV push to be as effective as the drip in his research to date...but he's only been at it for 6 mos or so.

Two weeks ago, he put me on pharmaceutical grade N-A-C (N-acetyl cysteine), which binds with heavy metals, raises glutathione levels, and is a powerful anti-oxidant. I take 600mg twice a day, and went into remission in a week. The Lyme is still around, and keeps trying to relapse, but so far has gotten smashed every time.

But I'm still on a lot of abx, herbs and supplements, and these are probably helping the N-A-C along.

But yeah, the results are incredible.

I've been on NAC for four weeks, and have seen effects even though it's not easy to know what they mean. The NAC boosted my energy a ton, I can get by on six hours of sleep a night instead of 8-10, my thinking is clearer, I've been able to do previously unthinkable feats like writing 4000-word pieces in one day or walking a couple of miles a day. I've also gotten noticeably more able to handle being sociable, because my body is starting to trust that I won't have to bow out every few days and stay at home.

But about a week ago, I started relapsing continuously. The symptoms are different: instead of having all neuro symptoms like headaches and dizziness, I've got constant muscle aches, a sore throat, a lowgrade fever. The NAC is reducing their severity, so I can still function, but it's strange that the bug is suddenly flaring up so much.

Sorry I couldnt post the link to the whole thread cuz of the "lame advertisement" issue. :rolleyes:

Anyways...I'm gonna get ART tested for my N-A-C...and I'm gonna ask her about the glutathione...see if she can ART test me for it. I'll also talk to Dr. S. about it....see if he's been using it at all.

I think it could be important for me....cuz of the heavy metal burden.

So...is anyone else on any glutathione IV....or any precurser to glutathione?? I think it might be helping me but its too soon to know for sure. <_<

We have high humidity too.

I don't like being cold either though. :blink:

I hate humidity! Today, it's not hot, it's actually overcast and maybe 70, but it's very humid. Feels clammy, so I kept the A/C on.

I really don't like being the extreme of either hot or cold, but cold dosen't affect me as bad as hot.

I just re-read that last sentence :blink:

In our case going vegan probably made things worse. Tone of soy, gluten (as in vital wheat gluten) and whole wheat. That was our protein, along with rice.

For anyone with candida/mold issues...here's a good site with alot of info:

http://www.mold-survivor.com/dietcopyright.html

Good site Rach - nice concise list. I also dunno about the egg part. I never had a problem w/ them, tho everything else on the "don't" side of an anti-candida list used to make me dizzy or worse.

And, to me, the Frequency kHz part is pretty goofy. I've taken far too much physics and materials science to buy into that. To me it makes as much sense as saying not to eat anything grown at the same longitude as Nebraska, since so much wheat is there. (i.e. nonsense)

Jin,

Re: stir-fry - it seems to me that w/ the balance of flavors needed, I'm out of luck w/out being able to use Tamari or rice vinegar or anything fermented.

I do use fresh ginger whenever I make my attempts. I *really* want to make a salad dressing like maybe ginger-lime-cilantro but they never turn out as good as my basic oliveOil (no need to state EV right?), lemJuice, garlic, sea salt, freshly ground pepper dressing.

I even some pieces of ginger in the freezer right now - saw several tv chefs say it works great.

Hey! Anyone else like America's Test Kitchen on PBS? Nothing gluten-free there, but for me starting w/ so little cooking knowledge, it's been great.

My cold-to-the-core symptom went away for good after awhile on the anti-candida diet. Haven't felt it for > a yr & a

Is anyone else taking any kind of glutathione??

...

So...is anyone else on any glutathione IV....or any precurser to glutathione?? I think it might be helping me but its too soon to know for sure.

Dr. S has me on a liquid glutathione...I've read that same article about it that you posted and was wondering why he has me on the oral...he DID say that if I have gut issues we can do IVs for most of this stuff. He did not put me on any of the precursors I don't think...didn't see any of mine mentioned in that article.

Hey! Anyone else like America's Test Kitchen on PBS? Nothing gluten-free there, but for me starting w/ so little cooking knowledge, it's been great.

I love that show! I don't cook worth beans, but I like watching cooking shows and I like buying cookbooks. :lol:

Well, lets see. You've posted that lyme is a problem. Rachel has posted that a little mercury can hold up a lot of lyme (I think that was the order :unsure: ). Those could be part of the problem but I suspect the borrelia more.

Well, Andrea, you are learning this stuff well. I spoke to my nurse at the LLMD's office and she said that what I had did NOT sound like a herx, that the Lyme was flaring due to the cold. That the immune system is so overwhelmed that it couldn't keep up with it all.

She also said that it's more important to get up to full dose of amoxy than to start to chelate, that it's more likely to be the borrelia causing symptoms.

BTW, I'm feeling much, much better today. I was worried that this was going to be a constant thing for me.

Also, she wants to test for bacteria and parasites to rule them out because of my semi-constant d. I have to get off the meds/supplements for three days prior, then for the three days of testing. I'm excited about that! I'll wait for the weekend ... I feel better off the meds, so may as well feel good for the weekend! ;)

This test makes Enterolab's look like a walk in the park. First, there is nothing to hold the tray, which looks like a french fry container ... or a hot dog container ... like at a fair or something. :blink: Then it has to be scooped into a vial and mixed with a fluid. :huh::ph34r: It might make me puke. Gross.

Carla--your hair looks cute curly, too. That's the one thing I can't do as well anymore since I've had it chemically straightened. I used to wear it natural quite frequently, especially in the summer, but now it"s not curly enough! (never thought I'd be able to say that :lol: )

Thanks. That's just air dried out of the shower. I always think it just looks messy, but wear it that way more than fixed up, for obvious reason. Much of the time I wear it clipped up in the back. One day I wore it stick straight and hanging straight down with my full bangs. No one recognized me! :lol:

Is anyone else taking any kind of glutathione??

I started on NAC and alpha lipoic acid to go along with the chelator. I was taking NAC on my own prior to seeing my LLMD, but he had me stop and start other supplements.

He also has me on mushrooms, saccharomycin (for intestinal health), and broccoli sprouts. Also, Xymogen Dimension 3 ... it's an interesting supplement ... you can Google it.

All the supplements he has me using are pharmaceutical grade. I take other vitamins, minerals, NT Factor, and probiotics, too.

Thanks for all the glutathione info. I knew it was essential because if I was late taking a dose when I had my amalgams out, I would feel like I had the flu.
