Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I would be very interested in knowing what this bloating thing is all about as well.

Hi Robin! I don't know about the bloating......just wanted to say "hi".

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: .

I can see it. Very nice photo. :D

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!

Lisa was already very sick and very toxic which is why she had to get them out. She was already very weak going into it and didnt have any Dr. to really guide her with the proper supplementation to help her body get through it without getting worse.

Also her removals were too close together. I think shes only doing one at a time...but still....its another hit each time and her body wasnt taking it very well.

She has someone helping her now and they're taking a break on the removals until shes stronger....working on the supplements to get her in a better place.

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.

It really does depend on the person. Do you consider yourself to be healthy right now? Do you think your body can handle it? If your body doesnt have enough time to detox from one removal and then you go to the next and then the next...you could be accumulating mercury faster than you can get rid of it.

It really depends on how well your body detoxes and how strong your immune system is. You could always do the first removal and see how you feel and then go from there. If you feel any sickness I wouldnt rush it all in one month. Its better to go slow and be safe.

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: .

I dont see it yet but my computer takes forever to refresh...it'll probably show up tomorrow. :rolleyes:

We've seen pics of you before...I remember you in a catholic school uniform and then another teenage pic. You already outed yourself a long time ago! :D

Yeah a couple years ago when I was on disability (but feeling pretty good on the candida diet) I was outside watching the show and the chemicals were bothering me alot....eventually I had to go back inside. There was a ton of fireworks though....seemed like half the block was doing them so there was alot of stuff in the air.

I thought I was smelling some this morning too....had to shut the window.

How the heck do you eat the peas without the skin?? :huh:

Peas is like one of the 3 veggies I can eat....I eat peas everyday. I guess I dont have too much problems with the skins...not unless they're causing all this freakin constipation. :unsure:

Dear Claire,

I understand why you would be nervous about getting the amalgams out. I am glad I never had any until now! I had a root canal last year, and need two more. I think I may be better off pulling those two molars and getting a partial. I am concerned keeping rotted teeth in there will do more harm than good. :unsure:

The root canal is a composite. I refused to have any metal put in there. I know it is connected to Alzheimer's. My father lives in La-La Land, and says I have no common sense. :angry: I hate these toxic people! If I do not get out of here soon, I am going to go completely insane.

The Asyra sounds like it could really be useful! I wish I could do that. Finding the root cause of an illness is the only way you can be treated properly. Getting to the root cause is the most important thing. Most doctors only treat symptoms, instead of finding the true cause, then correcting it.

I love your avatar! You are so pretty in it! Was that on your wedding day, or honeymoon? It looks like you might have been in Hawaii from the flowers in your hair. That would be pretty for a wedding, having a crown of flowers!

Dear Susie,

I hope you enjoy your company! Who all came exactly? Did you guys have fun? Mojitos probably livened up the party! At least they will help that terrible back pain, if nothing else!

I am like you where I am not good at being an invalid. I am busy! I am hyper, so sitting still, even when I am sick is difficult most of the time. It gets boring sitting around. You just have to get up and move, you know?

Dear Rachel,

Thank you for the Asyra information! :) I am amazed at all it can do! Who all uses this machine? Is there a place you can go to find a practitioner near you? Checking what agrees and disagrees with your body before you begin supplementation is wise. This helps avoid bad reactions.

Dear Alison,

You should have seen that terrible color the bleach turned that practice piece of hair! It is a good thing I did not decide to do that. It was almost orange-blondish brown. It kind of reminded me of that horrible brassy blonde in that makeover picture I sent you. Talk about too close for comfort! Meanwhile, I am waiting on my hair to dry so I can get it dyed my usual color.

Dear Donna,

I am glad you enjoyed your b-day treats, even if they irritated your system some. Hopefully, the reaction will not be any worse than what you already have. If you had eaten the Bumble Bars, that might have been a different story. I have never eaten one. Peanut butter is hard for me to stay away from. Right now, I am having trouble due to the yeast bread.

So, you were taking three antibiotics as well! I take two Prilosecs everyday. I sometimes get to cheat and not take it but once a day now. Before I was gluten-free, that never could have happened! The reflux was so bad, I had to sleep practically sitting straight up and could hardly wait until twelve hours was up to take the second pill! I would often suffer for three hours until my second dose could be taken!

Dear Carla,

I could see why you are frustrated with your son. He probably will wait until he gets too ill to function. I am sure that will be when my parents finally will stop eating gluten. They would rather get intestinal cancer than stop eating out. It is so idiotic. Can you believe my father is the one saying I lack common sense?

Dear tom,

The 60s were such a great decade! Tie-dye, counter-culture, excellent music, and so much more! B) When I was having the horrible testing done up at IU Med several years ago, one of the nurses I had was at Woodstock! She was only 13 at the time, and saw Janis Joplin live! :) How groovy is that?

I could see why you would rather stay where you are! I cannot stand being that hot! Evansville gets pretty hot. I do better in the fall when it is about 65 degrees with the sun shining. That is ideal!

Dear cmom,

Bloating is caused by many different things. Yeast is a major contributor for me. After I went gluten-free, it has been better, though. Dairy, other food intolerances and even too much salt can irritate your system enough to cause swelling in your abdomen. Soft drinks are notorious for doing that, too. Artificial sweetener also has a habit of resulting in bloating.

Speaking of Celiac, how is your son? Is he doing any better? He was very ill the last you and I spoke. Has he been diagnosed? Or is he on the gluten-free diet?

Dear Lisa,

Bloating is probably caused by the yeast and constipation from the yeast in your case. I know mercury can make you bloat, too. I am constipated, cramping, and bloating right now. I have been eating that bread with yeast my father brought home. It has been about two weeks. Now I know about Chebe, so I can get that instead to avoid yeast and still have bread!

The peas may be what is causing the bloating. They are legumes, like beans and peanuts. If I eat too many, I get some cramping and gas. One day, I ate an entire can, and I paid for it! Lately, when I eat beans, I get sick. I eat peas and I am alright as long as I do not eat too many. WTH?

Dear Sherry,

That is so interesting what you found out! Copper and zinc causing false positives for mercury is astounding! Who would have thought that? There is bound to be a way to figure your situation out. I think the Gluten-free Casein-free diet has probably helped move the copper. However, more might need done to correct the situation.

Dear Andrea,

Poor little Seth! It sounds like he is a walking allergy like many of us! :( I can understand why you feel you should wait on the amalgam removal. His health can be effected very badly if mercury becomes excessive. You might be right that the vaccines had something to do with it.

Sincerely,

Jin

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.

Thank you!!!

I't really hard to keep up sometimes isn't it?!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you had a good day- it sounds as though it was pretty relaxing- and hopefully your treat won't cause any problems.

Anyways you deserve to have 100 treats and bright blue toes and lots of warm epsom baths becasue your amazing

Thank you dear Mia, what a very sweet thing to say!

Isnt Mia just the sweetest?? This is why she's Sweet Spice.

Donna....YES....epsom salt baths, bright blue birthday toes...and...and...I just cant bring myself to say it.

OK...since its your birthday...TREATS!!

Hope you're having a great birthday!!

Why thank you! :P I DID reign myself in...all bumble bars are still where they were...I even dumped some chocolate covered goji berries down the drain so I wouldn't eat any more. :ph34r: I may extend my birthday until this morning though...haven't decided yet...haven't eaten yet...still debating. :lol:

OMG - -- nieces left at 4 - - - out-of-town friends arrived at 5 (my college roommate and her oldest daughter - oh Tom, from San Jose:)) - - - I am making mo-hee-tos - - - - just the quickest drive-by to wish Donna

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do I read this right?

Thank you!!! I agree with Carla....did I read this right??!! :P

I would be very interested in knowing what this bloating thing is all about as well. When you wear a pair of pants and six days later they won't go around you...it is NOT because you ate too much!!!!

I get bloated mostly from eating too much sugar. Doesn't have to be simple sugars either...too much of any kind of starch, but lots of things can do it. :(

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!

6 of my amalgams had gold crowns over them! I definitely had galvanic reactions going on! Also, every one of those molars had been redrilled and refilled at least once BEFORE the drilling/filling when the crowns were put on!

Keep in mind that I had 11 amalgams, so I had 3 out on the first visit and 3 on the second visit...those were two weeks apart (the week before Thanksgiving). I then convinced my dentist to let me have a break for Thanksgiving, my vacation and Christmas/New Years. I got sick the day I returned after my vacation (about the middle of Dec). I think I wasn't eating properly because I was on vacation, and I was definitely NOT resting like I should have been. We did a TON of walking and then went to Disneyworld were I did even MORE walking and poor eating. My adrenals were extremely fatigued even before we started this whole thing (I'm still not recovered actually from adrenal fatigue). So I think all of those things combined made me pretty sick.

I had the last 5 amalgams out starting in January over a two week period. I got much less sick from the second half. I was eating properly and resting and taking my supplements as scheduled. I felt a bit run down and had bad sore throat, but seemed to recover from it faster.

It really does depend on the person. Do you consider yourself to be healthy right now? Do you think your body can handle it? If your body doesnt have enough time to detox from one removal and then you go to the next and then the next...you could be accumulating mercury faster than you can get rid of it.

It really depends on how well your body detoxes and how strong your immune system is. You could always do the first removal and see how you feel and then go from there. If you feel any sickness I wouldnt rush it all in one month. Its better to go slow and be safe.

I dont see it yet but my computer takes forever to refresh...it'll probably show up tomorrow.

Yes, I also hadn't started BioSet on the first half yet, so I definitely wan't detoxing properly and had no idea about pathways, etc., which I definitely had a problem with.

Peas is like one of the 3 veggies I can eat....I eat peas everyday. I guess I dont have too much problems with the skins...not unless they're causing all this freakin constipation.

I've been eating peas again too lately. Yay!

I am glad you enjoyed your b-day treats, even if they irritated your system some. Hopefully, the reaction will not be any worse than what you already have. If you had eaten the Bumble Bars, that might have been a different story. I have never eaten one. Peanut butter is hard for me to stay away from. Right now, I am having trouble due to the yeast bread.

I still haven't eaten yet this morning...trying to decide if I want to polish off the almond butter with one of those bumble bars and just be miserable for the morning and get it over with! :P

Dear Donna,

It is so hard to resist temptation! I would not know what to do either! I am going to get the yeast-free gluten-free bread tomorrow. The bread has started to irritate my system now. There are only two pieces left. After tomorrow, I can get some Chebe and the other bread I just mentioned.

You said you had some chocolate covered goji berries? I have never eaten goji berries.

What do they taste like? I heard they have a lot of antioxidents. Meanwhile, almond butter sounds so good to me too! Chocolate with it would be even better!

Dear Everyone,

It turns out our words are not as new as we thought! :o Not only are there other Rachelvilles, but even slang we use we thought was our own! Check out what I found in the Urban Dictionary: 1. racheled

v. adj. Past participle of drink.

a. Intoxicated with alcoholic liquor to the point of impairment of physical and mental faculties.

b. Caused or influenced by intoxication.

c. To become excessively intoxicated and wild. To stumble, fall and vomit.

I don't have to drive tonight, so I can get as Racheled as I want and not have to worry. :lol:

Sincerely,

Jin

P.S. Laura, I see you! How is your new car? Didn't you get it yesterday?

I think we did find out about another Rachelville sometime last year. Who would of thought anyone else uses the word "racheled" though?? :o

Yeah...I'm pretty much racheled on a daily basis thanks to the yeast. :rolleyes:

Ummm yeah....impairment of physical and mental faculties...I think thats pretty much a given when racheling is involved. B)

Sherry,

I found out alot about copper. I also came across another person who had high levels of copper and eliminated her symptoms from treating it. I asked her how she reduced her copper levels and heres the info she provided.

I'm doing a low copper diet (safe for anyone on a candida diet) and taking zinc. Vitamin C and molybdenum are also supposed to be really good. Zinc bumps out the copper. Copper generally needs to be repalced by zinc because the two have a seesaw relationship in the body. Whenever one gets low, the other is high. So if you don't replace the copper that you're chelating by taking zinc, the coppper levels just wind up getting high again. The zinc has really helped me big time. I used to have many many symptoms and now most of the time I don't really have any at all.

Here are a few articles that might help her........

http://drlwilson.com/Articles/copper_toxicity_syndrome.htm

http://drlwilson.com/Articles/copper%20elimination.htm

This article is about how a low zinc level in the body contributes to metal toxicity.... and how toxic metals can replace the good minerals in the body if we're deficient.

http://drlwilson.com/Articles/TOXIC%20METALS.htm

I like the guy who wrote these, he has quite a few good articles on his site.

This is a link to a book I got that started me on the detox protocol. It was extremely helpful and goes into copper symptoms, diet, etc. etc. I'd recommend it for anyone who thinks they have high copper or has gotten a test that reads high copper. I didn't really understand how to get rid of it until i read this book. It wasn't a long or boring book either, I read the whole thing in like a day or two.

Speaking of Celiac, how is your son? Is he doing any better? He was very ill the last you and I spoke. Has he been diagnosed? Or is he on the gluten-free diet?

Jin,

THanks for asking. My son seems to be doing better (or he is just not telling me when he feels bad). All his tests came back negative. The only thing I was disappointed in was that my GI told him that sinus problems are not a symptom of celiac. (He has horrible sinus problems, especially when he wakes up in the morning.) It may not be a SYMPTOM but I believe it IS a complication. Since my son refused to let me go into the exam room with him, I couldn't argue the point. My GI did tell him, however, that just b/c he tested negative now doesn't mean he will always be negative. He is getting married the 28th so things are frantic around here! Oh, and no, he isn't on the gluten-free diet b/c he is a person that has to have a confirmed diagnosis before attempting anything like that. ;)

I think I will have his younger brother tested next summer as he has had possible symptoms as well. (I haven't been able to talk him into it yet.)

Hey JinThank you for letting me know about the peas being in the legumes and peanut family. Im figuring this is what maybe causing this terrible bloating. I had a drop of oregano and the bloating seemed to improve.

Rachel

Since you are always constipated how do you keep your stools soft? Do you just drink lots of water or really water down your colon everyday? I am tired of taking mom's and stool softeners. I think they are hard on my system right now.

LIsa

My new naturopath says I am low in zinc. I wonder if I should start taking this as well. I want to try vitamins and minerals. I know my body needs them. So what's the hold up on the doctors giving me these. It really upsets me. As the l-glutamine wears me OUT.

I just keep up with the warm water e's every day. I dont take anything and I've stopped the Oxy for now too. I'm thinking I was reacting to it. I'm gonna try again with that though.

I think I get blockages. Lately when I do the e's the first time theres not much water that I can hold...then what I release is definately not soft stool. After that I can hold more water and things go much better. There always seems to be some hard stool blocking me. :(

I also drink lots of water. I think the charcoal and high protein diet might be why I'm more constipated...but I'd rather deal with the e's then not have any charcoal. The charcoal does alot of good for me...especially with brainfog.

I rarely have bad brainfog these days....hence the increase in scientificness. :D

If I dont take charcoal I get brainfogged.

I saw someone get really upset in another thread because someone mentioned the consistency of their stool. :huh:

Hopefully that person knows better than to venture into the OMG thread. Thry might end up trraumatized by our posts! :lol::lol:

How does she know you're low in zinc? Was it from muscle testing?

Is she gonna do any kind of bloodwork to see what you might be deficient in?

Anyways...I dont see the harm in trying some zinc if your body is deficient. The hard part for me is finding the purest stuff available because I'll react to other things....like the fillers...or other added ingedients.

:lol: well, I mostly only tasted the chocolate, which is why they ended up in the disposal. :P I was Racheling the goji berries for the chocolate. :ph34r: Hello, my name is Donna and I am a chocoholic!

The hold up may be that they don't want to overload your system. Even good things can be bad if your body isn't able to handle them. I know on several of my vitamins and minerals, they had me take MUCH less than the serving size on the bottle. I think with as many problems as you have I'd run it by the doc first.

Both my doctor and the BioSET lady said I should be very careful about taking stuff that I can't handle yet even if it's good stuff. Vitamin C is a good thing right, well we couldn't find any of them that I could take more than just a few miligrams of (testing through BioSET).

I saw someone get really upset in another thread because someone mentioned the consistency of their stool. :huh:

Oh holy guacamole! They'd definitely be traumatized by THIS thread, lol!!! How awful to not be able to describe what you're going through...this IS afterall a Celiac site...most people here have SOME kind of poop issue. :P

She found out because she made me swish it around my mouth for 20 seconds.She made me then swallow it. It made my mouth bitter and tongue dry. So she said I needed it. She said that might be why I am not digesting food too in the stomach. The stomach needs zinc.

Donna

I was thinking the same about too much to soon. The l-glutamine though really wipes me out.

I can't get out of my bed. -_- I woke up at 3:30 P.M. today and I am still groggy and tired like I have the flu. She says I need to take this because my intestines are in a lot of distress.

I pooed a lot of mucous the other day and they really hurt. :(I see her again tommorow. She said we need to find something to fix this constipation. Her name is mikell suzanne parsons if you want to google her.

Donna, Thanks for reviewing your amalgam removal adventures for me. OMG, six amalgams with gold crowns! No wonder you have a lot of mercury to remove. Luckily, I don't have any crowns. So, you had 5 amalgams removed in 2 weeks. Was that over two appointments? Did your dentist have the alternate air source, dental dam, and mask for you? This is how the dentist I talked with does it. Actually, he has oxygen for the patient and puts a mask over the nose and eyes so you don't absorb the mercury vapors. He also tells me that he removes the amalgams in large sections.

Dear Everyone,

It turns out our words are not as new as we thought! :o Not only are there other Rachelvilles, but even slang we use we thought was our own!

What? An alternate universe? How weird :P .

I saw someone get really upset in another thread because someone mentioned the consistency of their stool. :huh:

I need therapy after reading this :lol: .

Rachel, what does the charcoal do?

I feel that I am getting pretty good support on dealing with my health. I know that it takes me a while to clear out toxins, but I think a month, as a minimum, would be a good time period for detoxing. Ideally, I would do it more slowly, but I don't have the option anymore. My immune system has been stressed with my seasonal allergies, but that seems to be winding down more. I got some additional Chinese herbs recently to support my immune system. I just need to get the Vitamin C IV set up for after the amalgam removal. Did anyone else do that after their amalgam removals? It sounds like it really helps.

Claire

Rachel, thanks for all of this information and I will check it all out. Thanks I did get the email. Maybe just post the name of the book here?

My zinc level wasn't low in the January lab results I have: 1.7 (range 0.1-2.0). And there is zinc but no copper in my current mineral supplement.

What do you think is the safest binder right now?. I can't do flax seed or charcoal but I really feel I need to detox or something right now. I need to bring this up to my naturopath tomorrow.

Also is fasting bad if you have mercury? I don't eat much because of the inflammation in my intestines just chicken broth or vegetable broth. It seems to hard to get through this. I know I need to be strong but my body is going downhill right now.

I'll google her tomorrow...glad you are seeing her tomorrow! Make sure you ask her all this stuff, lol. We've got to get some food into you somehow...broth just isn't enough. You can eat a couple of veggies right? Maybe puree them with the broth...they're easy to digest that way plus you'll be getting some vitamins too. How about baby food...no joke, but I bought some a few months ago when I thought I wouldn't be able to chew for some reason...can't remember now, lol.

Oh, love your avatar!!! Yes, I actually had 3 amalgams (I think 2 crowns) removed on my very first visit. Then I went back two weeks later for the permanent crowns, and he did the next 3 amalgams. I went back two weeks later for the permanent crowns, but it was right before Thanksgiving so I didn't want him start the next round.

He had air filters in the room, but I didn't wear a mask. He did use a dam. He had a HUGE vacuum hose right next to my nose/mouth to suck out the vapors and that was vented outside the room (outside the building I think, but don't think it was let loose in the air either). Your dentist sounds very good! I like the altnernate air source! My dentist did it in quadrants, and had the Holidays and my vacation not fallen when they did, I think he would have just done all of them two weeks apart. I totally think that would have overwhelmed my system.

I forgot to mention that I had a root canal 1 month before I started the amalgam removal...that particular tooth was redrilled THREE times! I'm surprised I don't set off metal detectors. :lol:

Yes, I saw that thread too. What I felt bad about was that the original newbie poster felt attacked (and rightly so!) and said she realized she didn't belong on the forum. I saw no further posts from her.

That is just so unfortunate! Newbies have so many questions and I hate to see them made to feel unwelcome like that. I totally missed that thread!

I would be very interested in knowing what this bloating thing is all about as well. When you wear a pair of pants and six days later they won't go around you...it is NOT because you ate too much!!!! :angry:

I get bloated from the bacterial overgrowth ... it's a symptom of that as well.

It really does depend on the person. Do you consider yourself to be healthy right now? Do you think your body can handle it? If your body doesnt have enough time to detox from one removal and then you go to the next and then the next...you could be accumulating mercury faster than you can get rid of it.

It really depends on how well your body detoxes and how strong your immune system is. You could always do the first removal and see how you feel and then go from there. If you feel any sickness I wouldnt rush it all in one month. Its better to go slow and be safe.

I got mine out in two stages. I had at least 12!!! I felt like I had the flu for the first day or two afterward, but took the supplements and felt better after every dose ... especially of the glutathione.

The only thing I was disappointed in was that my GI told him that sinus problems are not a symptom of celiac. (He has horrible sinus problems, especially when he wakes up in the morning.)

My seasonal allergies and sinus problems completely went away when I went gluten-free. I did so much better family members were AMAZED! Morgan went gluten-free and her sinus symptoms disappeared completely, too. It's the ONLY symptom she has, so she does eat gluten a few times per year ... she does not have celiac though.

I saw someone get really upset in another thread because someone mentioned the consistency of their stool. :huh:

:o:o:o I missed that thread! Someone should email her and tell her to come back that it's perfectly okay to talk about on the forum! I've seen it discussed many, many times .... people are usually apologetic about it, but still ask the questions.
