Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Lisa,

I'm going to pm you the name of a dentist I've seen. He's not the one that removed my amalgams but he's good...and he knows alot about this stuff. I was referred to him last year to check for possible infections/cavitations.

I asked Scott...he suggested the dentist....that you might call him and he might be able to refer a good Dr. You might have to travel to the Bay Area but it would be worth it if the Dr. is really experienced.

I would call and explain how sick you are...in the process of removals, chemically sensitive and needing a good Dr. to help you. Hopefully he can recommend someone for you.

I'll pm you the info. after I eat dinner and look for his card somewhere in my mess. :rolleyes:

Thank you Rachel

That would be great! I mean my intestines are so inflammed I can feel my food moving through them and it hurts. My mom is getting mad and fustrated. SHe wants me to take what the doctor gave me. I tell her I am afraid because of all the ingredients.

She said something like the mind is powerful and If I think it will hurt it will. She doesn't like me on the internet talking no more. I will probably stick with the black currant oil and see if that helps with the pain. I was wondering if I should still take a supplement for detox if maybe my pathways are blocked as well.

I will probably try charcoal again just not in the capsule. I also might have to try to get avacado out of my diet. I don't know if this is also hurting me.

I am also fustrated at trying to find doctors too help me as I am getting worse.

Thank you guys for your help and support. I don't want to give up but it's sssooo hard right now.

SO rachel are you still going to take charcoal if you can't detox the mercury? When is your laser treatment anyways?

When I say I cant detox the mercury what I mean is that my body isnt detoxing it on its own. If I wasnt having such heinous detox problems I probably wouldnt have gotten this sick.

Even if my liver pathways arent working wonders for me right now....there are still other ways to detox. One of those ways is through sweating...hence the need for my SpiceShip. Another way is stool.

The charcoal goes into my gut and absorbs anything that might be there....(theres always lots of mercury in the gut) and then if I can keep my stools moving I can pass those toxins out through the stool.

So really....I'm not detoxing on my own.....I'm using these things to *help* myself get rid of some toxins. I cant rely on everything to be broken down and detoxed by my overwhelmed liver and I cant count on my kidneys to do all the work either. These organs are overwhelmed and toxic.

So I'm getting some out through my skin (from sweating in the SpiceShip)...and if the charcoal is doing its job...I'm also getting rid of toxins through my stool.

I havent scheduled my LED yet because I'm waiting for some feedback on one Dr. before I decide who's gonna do it.

Does anybody know how to calm down the inflammation in the intestines. ANything to take?

I am crying I am in so much pain in my intestines my mom is massaging them. but they still hurt and are inflammed. MY doctor gave me black currant oil for the pain but I don't know if that will help.

Hi Lisa, I'm sorry you are feeling so horrible. Castor oil packs should help your inflammed intestines. Listen to your body and how you react after the castor oil pack. I've never had a problem with them, but that doesn't mean they will be ok for you.

My mom is getting mad and fustrated. SHe wants me to take what the doctor gave me. I tell her I am afraid because of all the ingredients.

She said something like the mind is powerful and If I think it will hurt it will.

Lisa, I would say listen to your body. If you are hurting, it's not all in your mind. It is hard for those not going through this to understand. Keep plugging at finding the right doctors and health care practitioners to work with. Do you keep a food diary? When I was at my worst last year, this helped somewhat. For me, I wouldn't feel a reaction for 24 to 48 hours after I ate something. I think Rachel is right in saying this is a long term process, so it's best if you find the right practitioners near you to help.

Here is one website that has references to biological dentists. There is at least one dentist I saw on the list from Fresno. I'm not too familiar with where you live in California, but there might be other biological dentists on this list near you. Then, when you meet with the dentist, you can ask them for references to good doctors who do chelation. I noticed that the dentist I was referred to is on this list.

http://www.iaomt.org/patients/results.aspx...Prov=California

Here's another website with mercury free dentist references. I don't know if any of these are near you.

Hope this helps. Claire

Here's some more interesting info I got from this biological dentist today.

Half-life of Mercury in various parts of the body:

Blood, GI: 2-4 weeks

Soft Tissue (muscle, connective tissue): 3-6 months

Bone: 9-12 months

Nervous system: 32 years

He explained to me that proper chelation is important because if you just move the mercury around in your body without excreting it, it can end up in the nervous system. That would be a very bad thing, considering it takes 32 years to get it out of your nervous system!

Two of my mercury fillings definitely need to go as they are worn and my teeth are cracked underneath them. My other dentist neglected to point this out to me last month at my regular cleaning :angry: . I can't get into this dentist until August 2nd, so I'm still going to do some shopping around before I decide on a dentist.

Ditto on everything...and YES to the food diary! :)

I don't like organic chicken and I have to have bones in it.

I don't know or understand why each day I am sicker and sicker. more pain and more pain. I really, really am starting to believe I will not make it through this. I feel ssooo siickk with swollen lymp glands, bloating, head pressure, constipation and abdominal pain.

I don't want to live like this nnnooo more. I don't think I am going to make it. :(

I hadn't thought there was much I could comment on regarding your situation b4, but besides what I've already posted, I see something else now.

Lisa, I don't understand "have to have bones in it".

My post-gluten-free problems were leaky-gut and candida, so I know I didn't go thru what u & most others here are dealing w/.

But I have seen enough similarities in the diet to be quite sure u need to switch to boneless skinless chkn.

I can even go as far as saying it's not really YOU that has to have bones in it. I don't know where the proof is, but I'm sure that it's the critters creating the cravings.

I'll find enough proof if it's doubted.

I used to loooooooove those bits next to the bone too.

I don't buy organic chkn, but when I've tasted it I thought it was good. I do buy local, fresh, all-natural boneless skinless chkn breasts on sale for as little as $1.69/lb tho. And it's fantastic. (what's in the freezer now might've been $1.99/lb)

It's faaan-TAS-tic partly because I gave up trying to guess and have long used a meat thermometer that beeps when it's done. (I set it to 159F, take it out of oven, and it rises to 165F in 5min or so.)

Never dry. Always delicious.

Lisa, there are many steps you'll have to take to get well, but the effort *will* be hampered w/out the diet to go w/ it.

If anyone can read what I quoted above from Lisa & claim she shouldn't go boneless, I would truly like to hear why.

I think it's just a piece of the puzzle, but once there are enough pieces Lisa, you will NOT be feeling sicker & sicker every day.

I've given up literally hundreds of foods I never imagined living w/out, but any thought of "is it worth it" is so far beyond laughable I can't think of any words that would do it justice.

I've been there. Now I'm here. C'mon over, by any . . . . . .means . . . . . . .necessary.

HI Tom

The reason why I need the bones is because I boil my chicken for the broth. The bones and cartilage have vitamin and minerals that my body need right now. It is health for people with gastrointestinal problems like me.

Tom your a great guy, somewhat of a riddler but your story before touched me and made me feel good.

You all lift my spirits and make me feel better even in the nightmarish time I am in right now. l

"Black and White" will always remind me of my best friend moving to Arizona (we lived in NY) in 1972. :(

And "Mama Told Me Not to Come" from the summer of 70.

I saw Three Dog Night in the very early 70's--3rd row--I was dating a local radio DJ at the time B)

Wow they were HUGE then!

I was a little young, mostly remembering when "Joy to the World" came out and the following like Shambala.

Big brother Pat had a lot of their records.

I am familiar w/ some Paul Williams songs. Well-written pop songs. Funny I'm now picturing his old appearances on "Variety Shows"!

Isn't Rainy Days & Mondays his?

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.

:(:angry::(

Tell ya what Jin - next time Dad brings home yeastbread, I'll send u the $8. (Uhhh anonymously won't work anymore huh?)

Paypal ok for u?

Maybe drop those last 2 slices "accidentally" in the dishwater?

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:

That is too funny!!! :lol:

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

Yes u must be loving that. :)

Great new pic btw. Mmmm gluten-free cake . . . . . . .someday . . . . . .mmmmm

Do you eat red meat and are you okay with it? If we eat red meat would filet be the best one to eat? I know they are harder to digest.

All I eat is chicken and slice turkey meat from diestel. It's just turkey meat nothing else.

Hi Lisa - 2x in 2yrs I tried lean red meat. Both times it was a full 3-4 days of C.

[EDIT - Oh ya that whole genre of pre-cooked pre-sliced turkey or anything was trouble for me. Not C, more gurgly w/ possible D, possible dizzy or hdache, or tight head & prickly face allergic-type reaction, tho a raw turkey breast cooked by me would be fine. Figured pre-sliced no different from the leftovers I avoided, as instructed.]

. . . . A lot of people are skeptical of Kinesiology. I say, if it works for you, who freakin' cares what other people think? :D

Contrarian Spice says to quit euphemizing in sentences as important as this!! :P

(euphemisminating? euphemisticisming?)

Hehehe but ya, who the ..heck do they think they ARE??

. . . . Does anyone else have a sneaking suspicion that Contrarian Spice has something to do with this?

Speak of the devil. :o

I'm so used to it I might do it forever.

Um, I don't. :ph34r: I guess it's because not many of my symptoms are food related.

I do write on my calendar when I have herxes, but that's the extent of it. My daughter keeps a symptom diary. I don't want to ... I don't want proof that I'm sick. :P I'm the "glass is half full" type ... I only want to know how I feel good. ;):rolleyes:

HI Tom

The reason why I need the bones is because I boil my chicken for the broth. The bones and cartilage have vitamin and minerals that my body need right now. It is health for people with gastrointestinal problems like me.

Tom, what is bad about the chicken with skin and bones? Is it the fat? I eat that part FOR the fat ... I'm taking Mepron and need a high fat diet ... but I'm curious what problems it was causing for you. Is it that as a celiac you have trouble with fat?

I've read that the gelatin in the bones is very good for you, but you do have to boil them to get it out.

Lisa, I think your mom is concerned because you went to the doctor and now you're not doing what was recommended, so she doesn't want you coming here because we're the ones telling you the recommendations could become a problem.

Since you need your parents to pay for your medical help, she has a valid concern. From her point of view, why would they pay for the next doctor if you've ignored this one?

I would call the doc you went to and ask him/her about the recommendations and tell her exactly how badly you are doing and that you're worried that you won't handle the products because you can't even eat food without getting sick. See what she says.

If you do start with them, go slowly ... small amounts, one product at a time. Ease into it gently.

If I remember correctly, the lady you went to is experienced in mercury detox. I would try her recommendations ... VERY, VERY slowly. One drop at a time!!!

Am using xylitol instead of sugar--anybody know if that is a problem? So far just in small amounts.

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better. :)

I rachelled the xylitol and from my rachelled perspective it was as bad as any other sugar. :ph34r::lol: Small amounts might be okay, I think it originally came from birch trees but I think that now they are making it from corn. :o

Gotta go to bed now...vacation is over. :(

Thank you for your scientific vacation Rachel. :)

Hi everyone! You can tell I'm feeling good when I'm not around here much. :D

....

:unsure: Mixed blessing from my perspective. :P:lol::lol:

I think it is so fabulous that you are seeing well days. :wub:

...

Well, it certainly would have been nice to have you visit, but I would have really worried if you made it THIS far down. :P

:lol:

It was quite the country drive. I thought I would take a side highway which started out as pavement but then changed to gravel which I am okay driving on but then it turned into a windy very narrow gravel road going the opposite direction of where I wanted to go. :lol: I returned to the main highway.

The mustard fields were beautiful and I do love the big blue sky.

Rinne....next time keep driving. ;)

Part 2

...

I don't know if I would go with this guy after seeing his office. He seemed knowledgeable enough, but he didn't have any special equipment for amalgam removal besides oxygen, a different kind of tip to section the fillings in large pieces, dental dam, and a respirator for himself. Any dentist could have that same stuff. I think I'm going to shop around a little more before choosing a dentist to remove my amalgams.

I'm glad you brought this up Claire.

The dentist I saw here, although he's listed in the resource for safe mercury removal also didn't have the special equipment. There are only two listed for my city so I am thinking to call the other one and ask more questions first.

I think it is important to trust hesitation.

Beautiful picture and yes, very blessed to have a Fairy Godmother at your wedding. :)

.....

I don't want to live like this nnnooo more. I don't think I am going to make it. :(

I'm sorry you feel that way, I've been there, most of us here are very familiar with that place. :( Pain and sickness are exhausting, they can suck the joy from the moment if we allow them to.

I'm pretty sure that most of us here are fighters, fighters in the sense that we are determined to get well, determined not to let the misery of our illness destroy us.

If your doctor has treated a hundred people with mercury poisoning then they have experience but it sounds like you need to know if they have treated someone as sick as you are right now. You can ask that question. It is important to have confidence in your doctor and how they answer.

Hi Andrea, how is the little guy with his bump? I suspect Talitha is a lot like you, I can see you taking the modiflan out of the capsule too. :)

Susan, it seems even when you are not around so much you cause excitement. :P:lol::lol:

Tom, glad you had a fabulous holiday.

Beverly, poop by anytime. :lol:

I have a question about air conditioners, i.e. window shakers, I am wondering if sitting directly in front of one could have triggered the migraine, nausea - throwing up, etc. last night. I was only in front of it for about ten minutes but then I got a headache which turned into the migraine.

Also, a question about the detox patches, has anyone tried them? Opinions?

Rinne, is the air conditioner free of mold? I can see having those reactions if mold was in the a/c.

I haven't tried the detox patches ... I figure I'm covered with the sauna and ecoffee.

Today I'm sluggish. Do you all think that it could be because I take the Detoxamin Mon-Thurs? Could it make that much of a difference?

Or is it taking a different abx for the klebsiella and citrobacter?

I'm having good days, but it's not as good as last month ... and today isn't one of them.

:huh: what? who? me? :P I didn't do nuthin'.

I haven't posted because the MRI news is just SO SO SO not good. I am just grieving now, I suppose, and when I rally back, will become aggressive and try and find out what to do.

First words out of my doctor's mouth yesterday, w/ results in hand, were...."I don't even know where to start..." :(

....and then my weeping began. There is severe damage all over my spine - discs, bulging/herniating/non-existent, nerve damage, pinched nerves, and all kinds of things I couldn't understand. Am trying to get a copy of the letter from radiologist and doctor is trying to figure out what specialist to send me to, because as of yesterday, he had no idea....spinal surgeon and pain management doc were two ideas. He was quite shocked at the state of my bones and I did have to remind him and give small science lecture on Celiac disease.....of course. <_<

So......I probably won't be around much....needless to say I am not in the best of spirits these days. :(

but wanted to say a quick hello and send love to all.

:wub:

and carry on toward wellness and fun, Rachelvilleans. :):(

Dear Rachel,

I agree that Lisa needs to do what is best for her situation. If she feels something is not going to set well, then she should not take it. I had the same problem with my parents. They wanted me to take pills I was scared to take, for fear they would make me worse, not better. Naturally, to please them, I took the Zoloft and the Reglan. I became terribly ill. :(

I ended up having dry heaves for seven and a half hours! It was horrible! That was when I started to get so bad, my parents had to take me up to IU Med. I was nearly killed up there, too. Your intuition never steers you wrong! I found that out the hard way.

Dear Lisa,

I know exactly where you are coming from! Trust me! I was that way about six years ago. It was awful. I had that bad drug reaction to the Zoloft and Reglan. It was terrifying.

I was too weak to speak, walk, or much of anything else. :( When I walked, my mother had to walk behind me to make sure I did not passout. I was nauseated and extremely weak and scared. I got down to 87 pounds, then lost 3 more while doing the testing up at IU. It was a horrific experience I do not ever want to repeat.

If you feel something is too dangerous for your body, then do not do it. Your body knows what it wants and needs. The gluten is a no-go! You need to tell your doctor about the gluten intolerance. This is very important.

Proper treatment cannot be given if the doctor does not know what you do and do not tolerate. If there is any way you can get to see Dr. Elizabeth, do it! I know how scared you are! Ask God for a sign that it is what you should do. He will tell you. :) I know I was supposed to get my gallbladder out despite the tests saying it was fine, because of receiving the sign I asked for.

The amalgam removal should not be done hastily. Your body is breaking under the pressure now. It will get worse if nothing is supporting your system. The constipation certainly does not help. The inflamation in your intestines is bound to have something that can help with it. We just got to find what it is. I will keep looking and see if I can find anything.

Dear Claire,

Listening to your body is the smartest thing any of us can do. I think we all learned the hard way about that! Relatives and doctors tell you things are good for you when they are not. They push you into doing things when you are aware of how badly your system reacts to them. From now on, when people try to tell me how I do not feel, I let them have a verbal thrashing! :lol:

I think you made a good decision. You do not want to rush this process if it is not going to be done properly. It does not sound like this dentist is as advanced as some others are. You could find someone better, as you said. I am sure you will find the right one soon! ;)

Dear Patti,

All of those songs are great! Like I said, I am a hippie! "Turn" by The Byrds is one I really like. There are some others, too. "Sister Golden Hair" is another great song! I cannot remember who sings that one, though.

Dear Laura,

Congratulations on your new "baby!" :) It's a Camry! I knew that was just what you were trying for! Well, as long as it is happy and health, that is what matters anyway. :lol: Your avatar is great, too! You look wonderful! That cake sure looks tasty!

Dear Kat,

Have you made any new progress on your mercury filling situation? I know you have quite a few of them. I did not think you had any appointments yet. Like the others, you will probably have to shop around a bit. The right dentist is out there somewhere!

Dear tom,

That barbeque sounded great! Especially the part about the seagull stealing the sausage from the grill! They are not dumb birds! :lol: It is amazing what animals accomplish! The next time everyone that was there goes to a barbecue, they will instinctively duck by the grill!

Yes, there are other Rachelvilles! Plus, there is the slang! It was a total surprise. The Urban Dictionary is something I knew existed. I had no idea it was so evolved!

Paypal it is! :lol: I think Dad might pay a little more attention now! I hope. We will see! I told him "No more of that!" It was good, and he knows how much I wanted a sandwich! At least his heart was in the right place at the time.

So, you are moving back to SJ. When do you think you will be there? I never would have moved to Phoenix in the first place. The heat is overwhelming there. The desert is beautiful, but not my style.

You are going to Portland for a month first? Wow, where do you get the time to travel? What work do you do anyway? I am self-employed, but not getting any money at the moment. Hopefully, that will change soon.

The flight home seemed quite interesting, and unusual. The start was a bit crazy. Despite that, talking to a teenage author and space genius must have been fun! Astronomy is cool. I always loved looking at pictures of the planets from space. It is mistifying!

Three Dog Night was only one of the good bands! So many were around in that time period! The 80s were a great time for music as well. I particularly loved "Africa" by Toto, "Man Eater" by Hall and Oats, and so many more! Let's not forget about the big hair!

I am so happy you enjoyed the vampire story. They are slippery, but can be caught. No more have surfaced. That is a good sign. Perhaps no more will enter the premises. If they do, you know what will happen! WHACK!

Contrarian Spice is at it again! I bet he is the one spreading those rumors about you and Susie! He is sneaky! You have to watch him! You know how he is!

Dear Donna,

I am so glad you posted you metal testing results! I have them in a Word document now. That way, I can pull them up to check them when I need to. If you want, I can paste and copy them for you in the future. Then you do not have to type all of that out for us again!

I agree that Lisa should forgo the stuff with gluten. That is dangerous territory. When you know you cannot tolerate it, it is best not to test the theory. Especially when you are already in a frail state. Too much damage to the system is possible.

Those iPhones are so groovy! I wish I could afford one! By the time most people who have one figure them out, there will be a newer one! That is the way it always is! You can never be totally caught up with technology, because it is always moving forward.

Dear Andrea,

I am glad Seth's bump is not as bad as expected. The ice probably helped a lot. It can hurt, but needs applied. Otherwise, more pain could result later. Your poor little fella!

The metal toxicity is something I do not think anyone expects to deal with. It is a good thing you were tested. Most people never have that come to mind. I prefer to explore all possibilities. I do not think you can afford not to when you get this ill.

Lisa should see Dr. Elizabeth if she can. I think she could really help her. I wish I could see her. It is expensive for plane tickets. You know, I think insurance should have to cover that type of thing if it is for an appointment to see a doctor.

I also think they should have to pay for an amount of the gluten-free diet for Celiacs and other gluten sensitive people.

Dear Bev,

We are all so glad you pooped in, too! It is fun to say! You just have to say it! I am so glad the herxing is going away.

That can do you in.

Yucky dookie herxes! That is so funny sounding! I love saying that and reading it! We need to use that more! It is our phrase, too! No one else can have it! All other Rachelvilles are going to have to just deal with it!

I got a reply on the OPI lacquers. Most of them are safe. There are a select few that are not. I representative gave me a list. I am going to post it later today on another thread.

The Glamour Shots were a lot of fun! I would love to do one again! They left here a while after I had mine done. My mother got one done several years ago. The Executive Inn was doing them, and she really did look great!

Dear Carla,

Maybe it is the detox stuff. It is difficult to say. The herxes can really make things difficult. I am so happy to hear everything is coming together. I am anxious to hear more about that new property!

You got an iPhone! You are so lucky! Those things are amazing! Are they difficult to use? Some of those things are complicated. My mother is so electronically impaired.

She screwed up our television. Then her cell phone was messed up. Me and Dad had to tell her no more touching stuff!

The one time she did the television, Dad was out of town. He managed to tell her how to fix it over the phone. From that point on, I was the only one allowed to touch the remote!

I am not keeping a food diary at the moment. I will soon. I need to do a rotation diet. This will help identify other sensitivities. Hopefully, so is not one of them. No Chinese food = unhappy Jin.

Dear Robin,

That is awful about the bride's father. My godfather did stuff like that. He would not pay on things he was supposed to pay on. It made everything really difficult for my aunt. The entire family was stressed out because of it. With a wedding, I am sure that makes it worse.

At least you guys are working together. If everyone does a little bit, it should go smoothly. It is difficult not to be overwhelmed. Just a little at a time can be done. I am sure everything will work out.

The hair falling flat is why I do not do mine like that. It will look great for about an hour. After that, it looks really bad.

Mostly, I just let my hair hang right now. It is long. I like it, but I have some ideas for some interesting styles I want to try.

Dear Susie,

I am so sorry to hear about your MRI results. I am worried that is what will happen to my mother because she is in her 50s and has had bad osteoarthritis and a piece in her back is disentigrating! I think she could have Celiac. She had a bone density scan a while back, and I think they said she has Osteoporosis. Your Celiac probably did cause this. I knew when you did not respond right away that the news was bad. HUGS!

Dear Rinne,

The dentist is something that you have to checkout. You just never know. Just because they are biological, does not mean they know everything about mercury amalgam removal safety. That is what is so complicated about it. There are many details that have to be explored.

I am not sure about whether air conditioners can cause migraines as far as fumes go. However, too cold air can induce them. I heard about that not too long ago. A lot of people get headaches because their head gets too cold upon entering an air-conditioned home. The temperature change is too drastic. I hope you feel better today.

I have not even heard of detox patches. I can try and hunt something up for you. Is there a specific kind you are trying? That would help me find information. That is something that might be worth trying.

Dear Sherry,

I hope your doctor figures the copper situation out. Did you find the zinc? I know it is not always easy to find those things everywhere. Maybe it will regulate the levels of copper. We can hope!

Sincerely,

Jin

Dr. Blaylock's Tip of the Week:

Viruses and Infections Cause Heart Attacks

A considerable amount of evidence indicates that atherosclerosis is caused by chronic inflammation, which often begins very early in life.

The dispute among experts is what causes the inflammation. One theory holds that bacteria and viruses may cause this inflammation. In addition, several studies have found a strong relationship between a common bacterium causing gum disease and atherosclerosis. In fact, the same bacterium has been cultured from the crud, or plaque, seen in arteries.

It is the battle between the bacteria/viruses and the immune system, which is in perpetual action to destroy the invaders, that begins the process of atherosclerosis.

When a bacterium or virus invades the body, the immune system sends in its special cells to kill the invaders. One team of special cells, macrophages, does this by releasing a burst of free radicals that destroy the germs long before cholesterol makes its appearance.

As with any infection, especially one that continues for decades, the body tries to seal off the infection. It does this by building a fibrous wall around the battle zone. Over time, this wall can also contain calcium deposits, and as this battle progresses, LDL cholesterol enters the injured blood vessel wall and oxidizes.

The oxidized LDL cholesterol becomes a very irritating substance, causing inflammation.

White blood cells attempt to rid the body of the cholesterol by gobbling it up like a Pac-Man, but some of these cells become so stuffed with the oxidized cholesterol that they burst, adding to the inflammation.

Immune cells then secrete a number of caustic chemicals that cause intense inflammation. Because the immune cells cannot rid the area of the microorganisms, the immune attack continues over decades.

Lead, mercury, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and fluoride can also cause the same set of inflammatory reactions in blood vessels.

Dear Andrea,

I have heard this before! I believe it is true, too! My grandfather had Malaria during WWII. He was treated with Quinine. It has been linked to causing congestive heart failure in young soldiers recently! Sometimes it is the drug that the illness is treated with. My grandfather has congestive heart failure, where his heart functions between 15 and 19 percent.

:(

Sincerely,

Jin
