Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Ah, 3 Dog Night...one of my favorites from the days of old. :lol:

Big hello to our birthday girl!! Any plans this weekend, Donna?

Nothing big...a couple of friends wanted to take me out to lunch today, but I decided I didn't want to do that...they'll take me to dinner in a week or so. Just hung out with my mom and aunt today, did a bit of shopping, ran over to pick up a stock of vitamins from BioSET, then came home took a nice epsom bath soak, then had my brownie with almond butter. :lol: Not exciting, but very relaxing.

Okay, I still haven't made it out the door and why because I am here.

:lol: There's that vortex again! :P

I recall you saying the Helidac therapy you did only had 2 antibiotics. That was surprising. According to the research I did, you need a minimum of three to eradicate it. I was on three! I took Flagyl, pink bismuth, and Amoxicillin. My doctor also had me on a PPI. Prevacid is the only one that has been proven to help kill h. pylori off.

I took the prevpac which is prevacid, clarithromycin (Biaxin) and amoxicillin, plus they had me take a bunch of pepto bismol (bismuth)...like ten tablets of the pepto a day. I stayed on the prevpack for 14 days, but stayed on the pepto for 30 days.

Happy Birthday Donna!

Thank you! Wow, I am impressed with our little Talitha!!!

happy birthday donna... I have to say it's impressive, you know, for a 7 year old to do as much as you and be that independent... you just don't see too many 7 year olds like that anymore...

Thank you! :lol: !! Yes, quite the active, adverturous, independent 7 year old :P Actually though, my mom said I was pretty independent. :P

Donna!! Happy Bday!

Thank you!! You must be loving SJ today....another beautiful day here!

Dear Andrea,

I am not sure I want to know what is in those things either! The sausage biscuits becoming like that make you wonder.

Maybe it had something to do with the cigarette smoke. Dad smokes like a chimney. It really is a bit frightening when you think of all of the chemical possibilities. :ph34r:

Talitha sure is doing great! She is braver than I am! I would be scared of taking the Modifilin that way! After all, it is brown seaweed. In other words, not tasty!

Dear Carla,

It is very likely the Stevia caused your trouble! I hope it does not do that to me. :unsure: I was hoping I could use it to get off of the sugar. RiceGuy has some he really likes. He recommended Stevita liquid extract. Stevita was surprisingly well priced.

I just hope I can taste it. We had some Stevia Extract before. I could not taste it. I could taste the after-taste, though.

They said it does that when you use too much, too. :huh:

Dear Charlie,

I am so glad you found this article! :) It is about time they start acknowledging the danger of mercury! I took it and copied it so I can send it to some people. Like Rachel said, how can they list this stuff as unsafe to dump in a landfill, but it is allowed in our mouths? WTH? There is a connection between it and Alzheimer's, and Aluminum is also involved.

Dear Patti,

I am a big fan of 60s music. I am a hippie. I love The Monkees, Mamas and the Papas, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, and all of those others! They did have a lot of sad songs in that time, too. Some of those I am not so into.

"Teen Angel" always makes me so sad. :(

Dear tom,

Are you going to miss SJ when you leave tomorrow? I bet you will! Especially when you get back to the 110 degree weather! I have a friend who lives in Phoenix. She says it is really beautiful there. I am not a hot climate person, but I would probably like visiting.

Dear Donna,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :) Your plans sound exciting to me! That sounds wonderful! A brownie and nutbutter? It cannot get better than that! As you can tell, it does not take much to please me! :lol: My expectations are pretty low. :rolleyes:

I could not do the PrevPac. I get sick from Biaxin. The Lyme would make sense why I felt better on the antibiotics for a while. The reflux was better when I was on them. However, after a little while, that is when it starts to get difficult to deal with.

I took all of those for four times as long as most people. The usual course is two weeks. I did the therapy for one full month. When I told my doctor it got worse again after the antibiotics stopped, he had me do it again. Talk about hard on your body! By the end of it, my stomach was really messed up!

Sincerely,

Jin

Thank you everyone for your replies on my questions :wub: :wub: !!

If you had ASYRA done how did the Sulfa group turn out?

I didn't have the ASYRA done yet. I'll have to ask about it next time I go. Oh, what does ASYRA do? I have a feeling DMPS wouldn't work for me until I get my amalgams out.

My doctor wanted me to take care of them now so Seth wouldn't have to deal with the addition of mercury every day. He's so sensitive though I don't think he could take the hit with the removal.

Andrea, are you still breastfeeding Seth? What problems have you noticed with him? Have you tested him for mercury?

Claire!!!

How totally weird...right now I was downstairs cooking my dinner and for some reason you popped into my mind. I was wondering how you were doing. Come upstairs and the first thing I see is your post. :lol:

I hear the theme to the Twilight Zone <_< . Isn't it cool how we are all connected even though we live in different places :wub: ?

BioSET identifies things that the immune system has become sensitized to. The treatments can desensitize you to those things to reduce stress on your immune system but they cant actually "clear" something from your body completely.

For example I'm sensitized to all the metals in my body...my immune system is reactive to them. I got treated to "switch-off" that immune reaction....which would relax my immune system a bit and perhaps allow my body to let go of some of these metals easier. But no....BioSET cannot clear the mercury from my body. Its still there until I go through chelation.

Thanks for that explanation Rachel. I was cleared for metals in my first BioSET session, which has been confusing me. I've been asking for years about my amalgams and whether I should remove them or not. The ART testing has been the only clear answer so far. I'm hoping that since I cleared metals so quickly in BioSET that I can chelate them pretty quickly. If I can get all my amalgams removed in July, I will do it. I'm trying to block out the fact that I love getting dental fillings about as much as I love jumping off a bridge into on coming traffic.

The ringing in your ears could be from candida or even a bacteria infection like Lyme. If you have high levels of mercury you undoubtedly have yeast issues...so that could be the cause of alot of your symptoms. It doesnt sound like she tested you for fungal issues?

Nope, I haven't been tested for fungus amongus :P . It hasn't shown up in other tests for me as of yet. I'll have to ask about that too. Oh geez, I better take notes or my brain fogged mind won't remember! The ringing in my ears started when I had mono, but I had West Nile Virus type symptoms with the mono in January with no mosquitos around. It was all very confusing. I got these shooting pains through my ears when I was sick. So I wouldn't be surprised if the ringing is from the viruses. Anyhoo, I think Cat's claw works on Lyme also?

The scar could be a toxic site on your body. I never knew that about scars until I read my Dr.'s presentation on all this stuff. It says especially if the scar is across the abdomen or if its near the area where alot of symptoms occur.

The problem with the scar is different than toxicity. I didn't quite understand exactly what she was saying to me. I kind of likened it to acupuncture meridians, in that the scar sort of short circuits your energy from passing through that area. Or your signals get mixed up. She was talking to me about things getting switched in the brain and unswitched, but I honestly can't remember it all :ph34r: (stupid brain fog :angry: ).

The saunas are great for detoxing mercury and other toxins. I ended up buying my own to save money in the long run. I figure I'll be using it enough that in a couple months what I would have payed to use the sauna at BioSET would have already payed for this one.

Wow, no kidding :huh: ? How often do you use it? Do you tolerate it ok? I don't get why just plain old working out and sweating doesn't work to detoxify?

Since you're going back for ART on Tuesday I would get her opinions on all of this too. She might be able to give you an idea of what to expect as far as detox and getting pregnant.

You know, I asked her about this and she had no clue. She just said it's better not to have the amalgams in while pregnant.

I did read, though, that initially, you have a spike in mercury when you have your amalgams removed, but then it goes down. Here's some info about it:

From http://www.toxicteeth.org/RemovalResults.cfm

1. For a period of one week following amalgam removal the levels of mercury increase approximately 30%. Within 2 weeks levels reduce significantly. (Symptoms may initially increase before improving.)

2. Removal of amalgam fillings resulted in significant reduction in body burden and mercury in body waste.

3. Total reduction of mercury in blood and urine levels is often reduced by 80% within a few months after removal.

I would have the fillings removed and detox with all the recommended supplements. I had fillings out before I got pregnant with Chloe, and she recently tested very low for mercury. I had probably 12-16 amalgams ... every molar had one. I took the whole detox protocol and that along with an anti-candida diet (remember, candida will be disturbed with this) put my Lyme mostly into remission for 12 years. I only had a few minor Lyme symptoms during that time ... but I'd flare during a pregnancy.

Carla ~ I'm curious if you went through other pregnancies with the amalgams in place and how those children tested for mercury?

Thanks, Claire

When you get a chance, can you tell me what you did to detox from removing your amalgams. I remember when you were posting about that.

I think I'm convinced about removing my amalgams after looking at this video. It shows the off gassing of a 25 year old mercury filling:

I didn't have the ASYRA done yet. I'll have to ask about it next time I go. Oh, what does ASYRA do? I have a feeling DMPS wouldn't work for me until I get my amalgams out.

Andrea, are you still breastfeeding Seth? What problems have you noticed with him? Have you tested him for mercury?

From what Rachel posted ASYRA is like an advanced BioSET. It determines what problems the body is experiencing and what holistic treatment will work. They also do the LED to help clear the sensitivities. Talitha has a mix that has color therapy and flower therapy mixed in along with detox support stuff. It's a liquid thing she has to take drops of.

I am still breastfeeding. I will be weaning him a little earlier than the other two. I nursed the other 2 for 2 years 10 months.......he'll be around 2 1/2 years or shortly thereafter (next early summer). This is to allow me to do what I can before amalgam removal. He seems super sensitive to any metals getting stirred up, otherwise he really is intolerant to salmon and me taking chlorella and probiotics.

Dr. Elizabeth will test both of us at the same time if I'm still nursing him when I start ART. I'm going to squeeze Micah in along with Talitha as I don't really think he has much of a problem. Then Seth and I will go through, then hubby on his own, or continuing with me. I don't know if it would do much good to test Seth while I'm nursing but I could ask Dr. Elizabeth about it.

Seth has a lot of food sensitivities. I'm thinking his vac's at 2 months triggered something.....or accelerated it. He hasn't had any vac's since then. It's a guessing game sometimes as to what is bothering him. Talitha also has a lot of sensitivities, being my first born she took a lot from me. With Seth I had had 4 crowns done before we knew we were expecting him and then had a root canal done my third trimester. Time will tell how much damage was done to his brain.....poor child. :( So far he seems to be ok. Before we cut out foods he seemed like he was slower to learn things at the stages children normally do. I know every child is different but he seemed to take off after me going off of the foods I tested intolerant to. Micah has the fewest intolerances, but has a similar skin rash type thing as Talitha.

How many almagams do you have? I have six. I took 4 out and feel so bad. I use to have 10. I should have been on supplements to build my system up first but I didn't know. I still dont know what to do really. I am taking l-glutamine but makes me tired and weak. I also take cod liver oil which is ok for me.

I was taking a probiotic but It has milk and causes constipation worse in me. The constipation is one of the worst parts on all this and bloating and bladder. Chemical sensitivity is pretty up there too.

Do you have any symptoms simulare to me?

Why thank you! I can think of one thing better than the brownie...I completely forgot I had chocolate bumble bars in my cabinet! :lol:

Oh, and while I was taking the 30 days of pepto I was also taking OTC prilosec...forgot about that.

This is sooo interesting since I have that large scar across my abdomen and my intestines is where I have a lot of my problems. :) No scars in my head except for my wisdom teeth, but that's where I have the other half of my problems. :P

Happy B Day Donna :D

I hope you have a great day.mmmm that almond butter brownie sure does sound good.

Thank you!!! Um, yes...chocolate peanut butter ice cream next year!! :lol:

Actually, I'm sure it will come as no surprise that I feel a bit sick after my brownie almond butter fiasco. :ph34r::lol: I'll live, but tomorrow I'm going cold turkey back on the candida diet. :P

Happy Birthday Donna!!

A Cancer, just like DH

When you get a chance, can you tell me what you did to detox from removing your amalgams. I remember when you were posting about that.

Thank you!! During the removal I was taking something called Pectasol. It's a modified citrus pectin which my doctor said would bind with the mercury during removal. The dentist told me to take selenium, eat lots of sulfur foods like eggs, onion, and garlic. I never did pick up the selenium, but did start eating some garlic and eggs. The first half of my mouth was done in November. I got really sick in December when I got back from vacation...my doctor put me on extra vitamin C--lots of it, lol. That helped with the detox as well I think.

In January I started seeing the BioSET lady who put me on chlorella and a bunch of homeopathic stuff and some herbs. I don't think any of it was specific for the mercury except the chlorella. I started the second half of the removal in January, and by that time was taking the chlorella, pectasol and vitamin C. About this time I started to feel sick again (sore throat, foggy brained, achy) and face got really dry and itchy. I had my last amalgam out on February 7...the dentist said to not start chelation for 6 months...I felt sick off and on for a while after that, but things started to clear up shortly thereafter. I continued to take the vitamin C and pectasol.

I've cut back on the Vit C now, but I still take the pectasol...it still tests as good in ART. Chlorella tests the best though...Scott continues to emphasize how important that is when I see him.

There isn't a whole lot of info out there about the pectasol, but from what I could find, it actually looked pretty good. It IS expensive however, and not so easy to find...well the capsules are, but I'm taking just the powder form.

Happy birthday Donna.

Everyone: I'm trying to read the posts or at least skim them--just don't have energy to respond much right now.

Jin, yes, somehow the copper is involved in the mix. I do wonder if it needs to be tested a different way though. I found this:

When copper or zinc levels are elevated, there may no longer be sufficient DMPS for mobilization of other metals. The results may be falsely negative for mercury. In these cases, repeating of the challenge test in 4-12 weeks is suggested. It is prudent to obtain laboratory measurements of blood trace minerals prior to the administration of DMPS to assess trace mineral status.

I remember that before I left the USA in April, my doctor did another blood test before he confirmed that I should take the mineral supplement I am on. I don't have the results of that one. Seems like the DMPS challenge really moves the copper first.

My doctor thinks that after going Gluten-free Casein-free I may be able to excrete the metals better. Guess that just might take time.

Wow, no kidding :huh: ? How often do you use it? Do you tolerate it ok? I don't get why just plain old working out and sweating doesn't work to detoxify?

A far-infrared sauna makes you sweat out more than just water. Even a regular sauna produces 97% water ... but a FIR produces 80-85% water in the sweat.

Working out and sweating is good, too, but doesn't have the same effect. Working out does raise the body temperature, which is good, but doesn't get the toxins out like a FIR sauna.

Carla ~ I'm curious if you went through other pregnancies with the amalgams in place and how those children tested for mercury?

I had mercury fillings during two pregnancies and neither of those children has been tested for metals.

My son is tired all the time, constantly. He sleeps more than anyone ... even my daughter says it's more than normal for a teenager. He won't comply with even taking simple vitamins and herbs, so I'm not bothering with testing. He doesn't want to be tested or to deal with it. He's 17. What's the use if he won't comply? I guess he's going to have to be really sick before he'll do anything ... but he has to learn everything the hard way.

My oldest daughter is basically healthy. She eats gluten-free because it helps with her allergies. Aside from allergies, she has no symptoms of health problems.

Chloe has Lyme Disease. The next younger has allergy shiners, we don't know why, but no other health issues. The youngest gets GERD. The other is adopted.

I had Lyme Disease when I was pregnant with each of them, so any symptoms could be from that rather than mercury.

Claire, nice to finally see you!

I didn't have the ASYRA done yet. I'll have to ask about it next time I go. Oh, what does ASYRA do?

Its the most advanced electro dermal screening available.

The Asyra electro dermal screening device was developed by Mark Galloway, an experienced health practitioner and technician, with over 15 years clinical experience and 12 years teaching doctors and scientists in over 17 countries. This has allowed it to offer an unrivalled level of simplicity in use and logical design, whilst still offering very comprehensive analysis of health status.

Key Features

The Asyra was clinically tested for over 2 years before being brought to market.

Because the Asyra was designed for a clinic it was built for results and speed.

Because of its unique Filtering technology, the Asyra only identifies the root cause of a health problem.

This saves valuable time in the clinic and correctly identifies the cause of the underlying malady.

The Asyra is the first electro-dermal screening (EDS) system to have both its hardware and software approved by the FDA. Many other EDS systems have the hardware approved, but not the software.

I have a feeling DMPS wouldn't work for me until I get my amalgams out.

Yeah...you dont want to have any kind of chelation until all the amalgams are out.....not that any Dr. would do that anyway. At least I would hope not. :huh:

If I can get all my amalgams removed in July, I will do it. I'm trying to block out the fact that I love getting dental fillings about as much as I love jumping off a bridge into on coming traffic.

How many amalgams do you have? If its alot you'll need to space them out. Getting them out all at once or too close together can cause too big a hit for your body. Too much exposure and not enough time for the body to "catch up" can get you very sick.

Nope, I haven't been tested for fungus amongus :P . It hasn't shown up in other tests for me as of yet. I'll have to ask about that too.

If you're mercury toxic then I would imagine you'd also be dealing with some fungal issues since they go hand in hand. I'm sure she will be testing you for the fungus amongus. :P

The problem with the scar is different than toxicity. I didn't quite understand exactly what she was saying to me. I kind of likened it to acupuncture meridians, in that the scar sort of short circuits your energy from passing through that area. Or your signals get mixed up.

Thanks for explaining about the scars. I dont know anything about scars....and I dont really have any except one on my knee from when I got hit by a car when I was 15.

I had a head injury from the car hitting me (or should I say from my head shattering their windshield :o )....so that might explain some things. :P

Wow, no kidding :huh: ? How often do you use it? Do you tolerate it ok? I don't get why just plain old working out and sweating doesn't work to detoxify?

The infrared sauna pulls out toxins...including mercury. All of my Dr.'s wanted me doing the sauna so I decided to buy it. I'll probably keep doing saunas forever since its such a good way to pull the toxins out. I dont think its a good idea to do infered saunas while you still have amalgams in though.

Hey

I did the DMPS challenge with my fillings. No one told me this was bad. I wonder if it made me sick and why I did this. No wonder I always feel so sick.

I was wondering taking 2 teaspoons of l-glutamine at 3000 mg each is to much? And if I need a binder while taking it? I felt like I had the flu yesterday. I didn't take it today and feel better. My lower abdomen bloating is getting worse.

What is up with bloating? Is it food, gas, or swollen intestines?

No....it wasnt bad that you did the DMPS challenge. It was only a small one-time dose.

I was talking about actual DMPS chelation therapy....you dont want to do any chelation therapy while still having amalgams in.

It sounds like alot to me. Remember that your fragile right now. You cant just start out at the max dose for anything....you have to take baby steps and work your way up. Your body's not used to it.....let your body get used to small doses and then work up.

If you start out big most likely you're gonna always get reactions. I looked on my bottle of L-glutamine. My BioSET lady had wrote 1/2 teaspoon on it. I'm not taking it anyway...but if I was...it would only be that small amount because thats all my body could tolerate.

My body is never happy with I start out on high doses of anything....and I always end up sick if I rachel stuff like that. :(

A binder can always help you with the yeast toxins. It helps me ALOT in that area.

My lower abdomen bloating is getting worse.

What is up with bloating? Is it food, gas, or swollen intestines?

It could be the yeast, something you ate, the l-glutamine.....hard to say. Did you eat anything new? Usually when I get bloated its because of something I ate.

Hi Lisa, I have 5 amalgams. You and Donna are scaring me because you both got sick after taking out your amalgams. This is exactly the reason I'm afraid to do it!

I have been doing Chinese medicine for almost 2 years, acupuncture and herbs. I've been doing a lot to get my system in balance and my liver clear. I think I would be ready to have my amalgams taken out. I just started taking the chlorella though.

My symptoms are not much like yours. I do get bloated occasionally, and it's directly related to what I eat. I worked on my leaky gut syndrome all last fall and winter. I had some pathenogenic bacteria, and that seems to be resolved. We'll see what the ART lady says Tuesday though. My stools are pretty much normal now, except for the occasional loose ones. I still can't eat gluten and dairy though. That's an improvement over what I couldn't eat last summer!

Rachel, do you think 5 amalgams taken out over a month is too much? The dentist said it really depends on the person on how many he takes out at a time.

I figured out that I'm doing a similar electrodermal testing with Dr. F, my acupuncturist. He has a Vega machine. I don't take anything unless it passes his machine. L-glutamine was a looser for me on the Vega machine, so that's why I don't take that. He also does the BioSET testing through the Vega machine.

I put my new avatar up. I can see it on the Mac computer but not the PC. Anyone else not able to see it? It's an actual photo of me and DH on our wedding day! I guess I'm finally outing myself :P:lol: .

Claire
