someone attacked our Patti? :o:blink::angry:

Well now WHAT is the world coming to????????

I know....its UNTHINKABLE! :angry:

I havent read that thread and I'm pretty sure I dont want to. I know it would be very upsetting to see someone attacking Patti of all people. :(

Hi Susie. :)

Missed you too!!

oh god .... So much Mia happiness right now.......

:):):)

Pssssst....big dorky smiles are "in" right now. I hope you wear it all day. ;)

Rachel-

thank you so much for the update I am really excited for you to get the LED done and I really want ot hear about it.

I cant wait to tell you about it!!

Ok I ahve to get to bed becasue i am exhausted I will post tomorrow but i have to get some sleep i ahve my 3rd Chelation tomorrow- and it wears me out - my doc is only giving me a third of the normal dose becasue i am so sensitve and yes so small. Rachel i goota tell you we are definitly in close competition for whose more toxic my metal results are insane!!!

Did you post your results? Did I miss them?? :unsure:

I still have no clue what my results would look like. I'm gonna ask this new Dr. if we could possibly do a challenge before we start the treatments.....or maybe right after my first LED...since I'll be taking a chelator with it anyway. I definately want to have a test so I could have a baseline of where I'm starting out at.

I think it would be best to do it before I get any LED's and see where I stand as of right now.....if I'm excreting this stuff or what.

Mia....did you ever have amalgams? I forget if you mentioned this before or not.

Yeah....I think we are both in the "insanely toxic" category.....but hey....we're doing something about it. ;)

...and what do we see at the end of the tunnel?? I dont know...you might see light...I see a BIG MAC...and I think I might be seeing some cheese cake right next to it! B)

Good luck tomorrow!

Hi, everyone. It is great to see more posts from everyone and a real sense of coming together. Lisa I am so sorry to hear about this and echo what others say. Can't figure it out for you, but maybe can stay with you on the journey. at least a little bit.

Update on me: have almost tested all the things I planned: rice, corn, soy, peanut, egg, and tomorrow will do meng bean. Soy definitely stands out as the worst, though I have reacted to everything. That wasn't a big surprise, as I have been that way in the past too. My current plan is to go corn light, eliminate soy, have peanut only once in a while, and not eat egg and rice every day. Gotta check that out with my doc of course.

And I don't have as many food alternatives available out here. Gotta have enough to get along! Hoping to be stable enough in the next couple of weeks to test milk. Maybe next month will test the nightshades too.

The high dose of vit C powder (with calcium, magnesium & potassium) along with my high dose of magnesium is helping a lot with the big C, just trying to figure out the amount that is just right and when in the day to take it.

I too welcome the scientificness to return, as that has been a great benefit of this thread. I'll pop back in when I can.

Sherry,

Sounds like you will need to eat some things that don't get along with you. It's just the daunting task of figuring out which things cause the least reactions that you can live with. Not fun at all. :(

Are you over there long term?

Dear Everyone,

I will respond to everybodys' posts soon. First, I wanted to do the "Ten Commandments of Thyself." I wrote these a while back, because I was fed up with sacrificing my needs for others' desires, only for them to not appreciate it. These were sort of like my New Year's Resolutions. I originally planned to post them the other day, but had work to do.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF THYSELF

1. Thou shalt not put thy needs off on account of others' desires.

2. Thou shalt demand credit when due.

3. Thou shalt not take blame for others' wrongdoings. (Most people have Not Me, but I am always to blame around her for everything!) :angry:

4. Thou shalt not feel guilt for things that are not thy fault. (I have a terrible guilt complex. I know it is not my fault I am sick, but I still tend to feel guilty about missing parties and events.)

5. Thou shalt not be insulted without defending thy character. (My parents delight in this too much, and then have the nerve to get angry when I insult them back!)

6. Thou shalt not exhaust thyself. (I have a bad habit of overdoing it. Then, I will get so sick from it, that I cannot do much of anything for two or three days.)

7. Thou shalt reward thyself for hard work.

8. Thou shalt not worry about situations beyond thy control. (I hate being a worrywart.)

9. Thou shalt take time to relax daily.

10. Thou shalt take time for personal growth. (Spiritual activities are important, and should not be ignored because of other people being demanding.)

If you, like me have been dealing with giving too much while everyone in your family takes, this is for you! Take charge of your life! Stop allowing others to dominate what you can accomplish. People can only treat you badly if you allow it. It took me until I got this illness to realize this. I wish I had learned it sooner!

Sincerely,

Jin

Claire-

I'de be really interested to hear about your LED experience. I am going to ask my new doctor what he thinks about this treatment.

Rachel-

no i never posted my results i have to do that. I had a short meeting with my new doctor before my last chelation and we worked out a small game plan we had both talked to my regular doctor the day before so we would all be on the same page. The two main things i am focusing on are the metals and the parasites . So for the metals once a week i am getting chelation and on every day i don't do chelation i am taking 3 supplements one is just minerals (crucial when you are getting chelation- as you have posted rachel in your lovely scientificness before), lipoic acid, and CoQ-10. as i said before i can only so 1/3 of the normal dose for the chealtion I don't know if we will change this down the lline but for now we are not going to push it.

For the parasite issue i am taking black walnut I started slowly but i ahve made it to the full amount of 15 drops 3x's a day!! My dotor was so proud it was funny. I also just did 3 days of this mediciene vermox - which i have taken before. I am hoping to have some relief from this.

For the candida issue it really cannot be dorectly addressed until the metal issue is under control I asked my doc if there was anythign specific i should be doing for it and he said"yeah get rid of the metals!!"

So thats more or less my update I know theres more but thats the meat of it. OH he also thinks the metal problem could be what caused my C D- 57 test to be so low.

Ok I also have some scientificness to post. One of the metals i was really high in was aluminum- which is werid but i found this-

For example, bacterial infections tend to bind with aluminum while viruses tend to bind with the other heavy metals.

Hello I am queen of the bacterial infection!!!

and ...

When there is toxic metal overload in the intestine, the intestinal lining produces extra mucus to block metals from being absorbed into the blood stream. The problem is that this mucus creates an environment, which lacks oxygen, thus encourages bacteria and fungi like organisms such as candida yeast to grow out of control.

Ok i am queen of the candida and had recently befor this test was done had alot of problems with constipation and discovered alot of mucus in my stool. (sorry i know too much info)

and..

Heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, platinum, arsenic and lead in our environment collect in our cells and when present in elevated concentrations, suppress our cell's normal ability to utilize oxygen. Reduction of cellular respiration often triggers increased yeast proliferation to compensate for this reduction in energy production. Yeast overgrowth in bodies challenged by high toxic metal levels, can be understood as the body's desperate attempt to protect itself against the ravaging effects of heavy metal poisoning. In such cases, the heavy metal load on the system must be reduced to free the system of long-term yeast overgrowth. Individuals with high levels of heavy metals are likely to suffer if attempting to clear yeast / fungal overgrowth, before first addressing their elevated heavy metal levels effectively. When yeast is attacked in such cases, the underlying heavy metal toxicity may cause symptoms of considerable unwellness. Such symptoms and signs are most often misinterpreted as yeast die-off reactions.

this could definitly explain why i always felt I was having die off yet i still had the candida

Ok thats my scientific contribution for the day

Hi Lisa!

Thanks for weighing in. Your opinions are cetainly welcome, and I will keep what you said in mind. We do always welcome the new people and even sometimes invite the "guests" to join in. Pop in anytime!

NOBODY messes with our Patti.

HARRUMPH! :angry:

someone pm me and tell me where it was. I promise not to get involved - just want to read it.

Sheesh!

Thanks Susie :D I think Scott may have removed some of the posts, I'm not sure. They're best forgotten ;)

But HARRUMPH! is right :lol:

How's the back today? Still taking it easy, I hope.

Well, just in practice, and just in front of the choir director, who has, oddly enough, never heard me sing alone before. :lol: I had some people praying for me, and it worked because I wasn't nearly as nervous as I was when I did just in our little group. I do the solo for real on August 5 (whatever that Sunday is).

I didn't know anyone when I joined this thread, and I was welcomed and was just assimilated, lol (kind of like the BORG of Startrek fame, lol). I wish I knew how to project that to everyone who reads this thread.

Always good to have prayers behind you, but somehow I know that you did just fine and when you do it for real on the 5th, it's going to be fabulous! B)

Yup--I just kind of jumped in, too. Funny, becaue in real life, I'm not much of a jumper :lol::lol:

oh god .... So much Mia happiness right now.......

Patti-

thank god we caught you right in time - PHEW!!!!

Thanks, sweety! Good luck today, I hope it dosen't tire you out completely. When you feel up to it, let us know how you are. :):D:D Mia happiness :D:D

Email has been sent.

I didn't get it :unsure:

I havent read that thread and I'm pretty sure I dont want to.

You're right, you don't :P

Onward and upward! :D

I have an appointment this morning with my internist (the one who ordered the stress-echo). He'll be discussing the results, etc. Good think I'm going, I have another disgusting eye infection :angry: Looks like someone popped me one :lol:

Are you over there long term?

Yes, I am here long-term, just in the USA a couple of months in the winter. Yes, I don't think I can eliminate it all, but maybe just the soy will help. As some of our scientificness brings hope....perhaps eventually this will calm down.

Patti, I am glad to hear that Scott removed some posts. I've been concerned especially for newbies. There are lots of people out there that need the support of this forum. I so appeciate your posts!

I swear, sometimes these threads get to be like a family reunion that lasted a day too long.

:lol::lol::lol: At least it took over a year for this to happen!! :lol::lol::lol:

someone attacked our Patti? :o:blink::angry:

That is very odd ... I mean, I am a pain in the arse, but Patti???? <_<

Well, just in practice, and just in front of the choir director, who has, oddly enough, never heard me sing alone before. :lol: I had some people praying for me, and it worked because I wasn't nearly as nervous as I was when I did just in our little group. I do the solo for real on August 5 (whatever that Sunday is).

During Communion the choir sings through the verses, then if we need more, I play a solo for a verse ... this Sunday it was a song I had never played or even heard. So, when it came time for my solo, a few bars into it, I missed a half-beat entirely and got completely off. Fortunately, it's the job of the accompaniest to find you, not the other way around ... I never could have figured out how to get back on track! :D

Don't worry about it. Everyone is impressed that you are brave enough to get up there alone ... those in the pews aren't brave enough to join the choir! You'll be FINE!

You'll have such an energy rush that day after all that adrenaline!

Email has been sent.

Thank you. It's great to hear from you.

THey want to put me in the hospital with IV's. My doctor said that my organs are eating themselves up. I eat but always get diarrhea.

Lisa, please listen to your doctor. She (it's a she, right) knows what's best for you, knows about metals, and can get you better. I agree with her, I think you need some nutrition intravenously to get back on track.

A quick update --

I've been chelating for a month now. Getting the lead out has been a big help! I can read again! I haven't been able to read anything but a broken up post for over a year now, but I can now read whole chapters of a book!

My last herx was mainly babs symptoms ... I didn't have nearly the fatigue I normally do. It was mainly night sweats, air hunger, and heart palpitations. I had one day of severe fatigue. At this point, it was more an annoyance than anything ... I felt like I should be able to do things, but couldn't.

Last night I went for a long BIKE RIDE with my family!!! I remember last summer, I dusted off my bike, then nearly fainted and had to go inside while they all went for a ride. So, this is significant progress.

I'd say I'm about 75%. During a herx I go down to about 50%.

I finished my Cipro yesterday for the GI infection. I'm on lots of probiotics (Theralac, Ultra Flora, and VSL#3). I started back on my amoxy last night. Still taking all the other stuff, too (if you don't remember it all, you can PM me).

Well, off to another busy day, but wanted to check in.

Keep plugging away, everyone ... slowly, we will all get our lives back. After four years, I'm feeling somewhat normal again.

I keep reminding myself, the three things Dr. B. says prevent a Lyme patient from getting better -- lack of sleep/rest, alcohol, and non-compliance. It gets harder and harder to follow this stuff as you get better ... but it's even more important so we can get rid of the more stubborn bugs. :)

Jin - WOW, great 10 commandments!!! I know I need to work on a few of those for sure!

Lisa - I tend to agree with what others have said. Perhaps being in the hospital wouldn't be so bad for you right now. I don't know how tall you are, but 85 pounds is really light for anyone!

Mia - I am just so happy about how your doctors are proceeding...it sounds like they are really trying to make this as doable for you as they can while still trying to get those metals out. I'm sorry the treatments knock you out though! Excellent scientificness!!! I have a lot of mucous too...that might explain it.

I've seen Tom a couple of times now...how's the trip going?

I'll post on my LED experience later. I'd like to say that I have been feeling really good since my first treatment. Coincidence or not? Related to the beginning of my amalgam removals? A shift in the planets

I often say I don't care how it works as long as I feel better, lol. I still haven't decided on whether I should do LED or not...perhaps if Rachel likes her person, maybe... :P

From my hubby.........yeah, it was mercury that shifted.

:lol:

I love it when we all support one another. It restores my faith in the true goodness of people.

Life is too short for arguing, there is enough conflict going on in the world around us.

Yep, yep, yep!

I was also wondering if you've tried wearing a mask around things that bother you.....like in your brothers room...could you wear a mask and possible not react so badly? I sometimes wear one of those painters masks when I'm doing cleaning/dusting around the house.

I'm actually thinking of doing this too. Yesterday someone came to the window and was wearing a LOT of cologne or perfume or body lotion or something. I could hardly stand there to take her job. My throat starting feeling like it wanted to close up and definitely got scratchy! I didn't feel well most of the day after that, and could smell it even after she was long gone. They can't really tell the entire office to NOT wear stuff, but maybe I can do something like wear a mask. Course, I guess it would be rude to slap a mask on when someone comes to the window though. :lol: :lol:

The high dose of vit C powder (with calcium, magnesium & potassium) along with my high dose of magnesium is helping a lot with the big C, just trying to figure out the amount that is just right and when in the day to take it.

I finally found a C powder that I can take a lot of. My BioSET lady tested the one I'm using now on Saturday and said my body can handle 2 tsp a day...that would be 10,000 mgs, so I'm pretty happy. I can't take that much at once though...can't even take a tsp at once since I tend to have D anyway. :(

Yup--I just kind of jumped in, too. Funny, becaue in real life, I'm not much of a jumper

I am a dual personality...I sometimes jump and I sometimes don't. :P I jumped here. :lol:

During Communion the choir sings through the verses, then if we need more, I play a solo for a verse ... this Sunday it was a song I had never played or even heard. So, when it came time for my solo, a few bars into it, I missed a half-beat entirely and got completely off. Fortunately, it's the job of the accompaniest to find you, not the other way around ... I never could have figured out how to get back on track!

Don't worry about it. Everyone is impressed that you are brave enough to get up there alone ... those in the pews aren't brave enough to join the choir! You'll be FINE!

You'll have such an energy rush that day after all that adrenaline!

Yeah, the adrenaline is sometimes my problem, lol. I get this huge rush of it right before we sing (the small group, not the choir) which sometimes works against me. :P The good thing about the sing is there is lots of chances to find my place...if I start out too fast there's lots of ways to slow it down, if I start to slow I can catch up. :P

Your progress is really encouraging!!! I feel like I slipped back a bit, but I don't really think it's true...I think I've just been detoxing and addressing the lyme with some supplements and I think overall it will be good.

Dear Andrea,

The guy Dad is supposed to meet is in California on business this week. He has arranged for he and my father to meet in Louisville, Kentucky the 24th. We are hoping he gets that job! I will be a wreck until I hear he got the job. :unsure: Meanwhile, I am worrying constantly about money, because everything has to do with money.

You know how you mentioned Mercury causing the trouble around here? I believe it! Whenever it goes into retrograde particularly, it causes people to act strangely. Blame it on Mercury!

He is the God of communication in the Greek and Roman philosophies. In this case, it was miscommunication!

Dear Rachel,

Our fearless President is back! Oh, we missed you so much! HUGS! We love you too! Everyone is so happy you are back! :wub: It just was not the same without you!

I cannot wait to hear about your LED treatment on the 25th! This is so exciting! I think everybody else is as excited as you are! :lol: The scientificness behind it alone is amazing. The fact that it works so well to detox is, too.

I look forward to more scientificness. It is an essential element to the thread. Without it, there is not that rachelness there we so adore! There is so much we can learn from each other, and have learned. I am more than willing to keep my mind and heart open! :)

Thank you for the Lisa update. We were all very worried. She had not posted recently until yesterday. That whey protein powder is bad to inhale when you are sensitive like she is. Hopefully, the mask you suggested would fix that.

Dear Momma Goose,

Thank you for the compliments Goosey! :) I love your nickname, it is so cute! I think I know what you meant when you said the thread appears somewhat inclusive. We are all open to new posters. However, I can see where people would feel awkward since we know each other so well. They can feel left out when we share some things and reminisce.

The information is wonderful! We are blessed to share each others' lives. Having an online family like this is incredible! It is nice to know you have a family here. The support is extremely important and valuable.

Dear Jesgar,

ROFLMAO! :lol::lol::lol: Thanks for the punching bag! It is so courageous of you to sacrifice yourself! Be warned----I have anger issues! Mostly with blood relatives. Thank you for the frivolity and hilarity!

Dear Sherry,

I want things to be normal again as well. Everything was so messed up for a while. Nothing felt right. This really threw us all through a loop. Thank goodness things are moving toward good things again!

It sounds like your testing was productive! I am sorry to hear you react to so much. My fear is I too, will not tolerate those things. I need to do the rotation diet to avoid new problems. I found a good example of one and printed it out. I think I finally understand how to do it properly.

Dear Laura,

I cannot believe someone attacked Patti! :o I can have Dollface take care of it. She will not mind. It is another job. I think she is angry at Contrarian Spice, still. He is in hiding.

You should not feel bad about not posting. You have things to do! We understand. It is great to hear from you when possible! I look forward to updates on your progress.

Dear Mia,

Thank you for getting everyone back together! You really are a wonder! Mia happiness is the best happiness! Plus, big dorky smiles are the best! They are a trademark in Rachelville!

I just wanted to have things the way they were, too. I was terribly sad over the turmoil. Thank goodness things are back to how they are supposed to be. The situation is so much better now. Sometimes you just have to stand back and gain perspective again.

I hope your chelation goes well today! I imagine it is difficult for you. The energy gets sucked right out of you from it. Trying to get rid of that stuff takes all you have! Taking the slower approach is smarter. Kudos to your doctor!

Thank you for the update. Totally bodacious scientificness my friend! I hope you do not have more parasites. The vermox sounds like it could really help. There could be more of Gus's family hanging around. We definitely do not want them partying in there!

Dear Lisa,

I agree that going in the hospital may be your best option. I was around the weight you are at now when I was hospitalized. I got too frail. It really was the only thing that could have been done at the time. Rachel had a great idea when she suggested the mask to avoid inhaling the whey protein powder.

You mentioned all you eat is the same thing everyday. That is not good to do. You develop other food sensitivities that way. Rotation diets help avoid this. It also identifies sensitivities.

I noticed I do not react to foods as long as I do not eat them very often. I am sensitive to mold, but actually do better on some foods even that have mold if I do not eat them more than once a week. I believe Carla said she can tolerate peanut butter or fruit juice once or twice a week. It is all about moderation. I am working on doing the Candida Diet. Easing into it is more intelligent of an approach considering my body's condition.

Dear Carla,

We love you, too! I missed you as well! We are all so glad you and Rachel are back, and our family is whole again. There were so many wonderful souls missing the past week! BIG GROUP HUG!

This is such terrific news about you doing better! It takes time. You make me see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. So does Rachel. When you are sick, inspiration such as this really helps you tough it out when you are having a difficult time.

You got that right when you said how could we agree on health issues if doctors can't! There is only one thing the medical community is certain about. That is, that they do not know anything for sure! One minute, bacon is good for you. The next week, it is deadly and the worst food you could ever consume. No wonder people are confused!

Dear Bev,

ABX tends to impact many people's stomachs in a bad way. Others have commented on that before. I hope you feel better soon! How long have you been taking that stuff now? It has not been too long, I do not think.

I can see why you took a break. Sometimes it is hard to have the energy to do anything! Being chronically ill makes even the simplest thing exhausting. Thank God breathing is automatic, because if not, I would not have the energy to do it! Also, I too am thrilled everyone is back together.

Dear Susie,

Thank goodness you are doing alright! Maybe there is something they can do for your back. I am sure if I do some research, I could find something. Here, there is a procedure called Vax-D, but I am not sure if it would correct the trouble you have. It is worth checking out. I will let you know what I find.

Dear Claire,

That climb sounds scary! I am scared to death of heights! How did you go up there without passing out? This was no wimpy height! Congratulations on climbing the crag!

It is not surprising you feel better after getting the mercury out of your tooth! The crap is poison for crying out loud! HEINOUS! This is very encouraging! I bet you are anxious to get the others out.

You probably did not realize you did not feel as well as you could have before getting the filling removed.

Dear Patti,

As Rachel said, we are more than happy to be stuck with you! It is like that song "I'm So Happy To Be Stuck With You". Do you remember that one? That was a great song. I really like it, but have no clue who sang it.

We seem to be getting back to our old selves now. Something weird was going on last week. A parallel universe could have collided with our Rachelville. This is my best guess. Nothing else can explain it.

Dear Christina,

We enjoy sharing with you! It is great that you are back on here! You had not posted for a while. All of the information is bound to help someone. When you work together, you are bound to figure things out!

Dear Donna,

We are pulling for you! The 5th of August is when you sing, right? I know you can do it! You will do great! As you said about the power of prayer, it can fix anything! No matter if it is stage fright or illness, every little bit helps!

The D over the weekend was probably not fun. It never is. Do you have any idea what exactly caused it? Or was it an out of nowhere thing? There are days my stomach acts up even though I am careful what I eat all day.

I would go with the nut butters. They tested well. The avacado did not test well at BioSet, you said. That probably means your body will not tolerate it. Nut butters seem safer at the moment.

I am glad you like my ten commandments. I have a bad habit of letting everyone have me do their work. Then I let my needs go. I must start taking better care of myself. That is what I plan to do!

THE SONG FOR THE OCCAISION IS.....

KEEP SMILIN'

KEEP SHININ'

KNOWING YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON ME

FOR SURE

THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR

Sincerely,

Jin

P.S. I see you Kat!

P.S.S. Didn't someone mention Judy's appointment was today or very soon?

I used to feel that I was slipping back because I would get as bad as I was before treatment. But now, I *only* slip back to about 50%. I think it's just the natural cycle of things.

For example, bacterial infections tend to bind with aluminum while viruses tend to bind with the other heavy metals.

That was very intersting Miamia. Hope your chelation goes well today......you've probably already had it done. Take is easy. Sounds like you have a good doctor. :)

I have an appointment this morning with my internist (the one who ordered the stress-echo). He'll be discussing the results, etc. Good think I'm going, I have another disgusting eye infection :angry: Looks like someone popped me one :lol:

When I feel my adrenaline surging, my voice gets really high. :P

Dear Patti,

As Rachel said, we are more than happy to be stuck with you! It is like that song "I'm So Happy To Be Stuck With You". Do you remember that one? That was a great song. I really like it, but have no clue who sang it.

Jin, Best of luck to your dad on his upcoming job interview :)

Judy's testing was today--at noon. She should be in there now. We should all send positive thoughts her way now :D

"Happy To Be Stuck With You" was done by Huey Lewis and the News. What a cutie he is :wub:

Patti, I'll be looking for an update when you're able. Hope all went well.

I just got back. I have conjunctivitis and and an upper respiratory infection :( He gave me a month's worth of the med the cardiologist told me about for my heart rate and prescriptions for antibiotics and eye drops. Oye :o

We meet with our realtor tonight, so I'm not starting the antibiotics until after he leaves. Those always upset my stomach. I also have eye drops, which I'm starting now. B)

Hope all goes well and the house sells quickly.

Not fun with the antibiotics and you just getting over the glutening from the sunscreen. Hope they don't cause you to much trouble. :(

My thoughts are with Judy......thanks, I didn't know what time her appointment was. :)

Dear Andrea,

I am hoping that God does not drive all the way to Louisville for nothing next week! I just worry too much. If I had money, I would worry a lot less! That is difficult to deal with. You can always tell people who have never been without it, because they act like stuff just drops in your lap! Silly rich people!

I thought Judy's appointment was today! According to Patti, she should be in there right now! Testing is certainly a nerve-wrecking process. No matter what it is, it can freak you out. I often got nervous about any type of testing. Blood work really was the only thing that did not bother me.

Dear Patti,

I am sending positive energy to Judy, too! We are all pulling for her! I hope she knows that! What kind of testing exactly was she getting done? Was it BioSet or ART? I was thinking it was something else.

I knew that it was Huey Lewis and the News! Big duh to me! I just heard it the other night! I agree, Huey was a cutie! They do not make guys like that anymore.

Thank you for the good energy for Dad. He will probably ace it. I just hope he gets the job. They are expanding in this area. From the e-mail Dad showed me with the guy's reply, he seems very interested. Dad developed this area into a $100,000 opportunity.

Sincerely,

Jin

Jin,

Judy is having a colonoscopy and endoscopy today.

I saw Huey Lewis last year I think it was, on an episode of Reba. He's still very good looking! :D

Sounds good for your dad--I'll keep my fingers crossed for him :)

For the candida issue it really cannot be dorectly addressed until the metal issue is under control I asked my doc if there was anythign specific i should be doing for it and he said"yeah get rid of the metals!!"

Mia...I totally LOVE your new Dr.! :)

It seems like you're in good hands now and I'm really happy you're not in all that confusion anymore!! You're getting the answers and you're getting treated and I believe you're definately on the right path now. YAY! :)

I'm also glad that he's communicating with your normal Dr. so that everyone is on the same page. Its good because now your Dr. can learn....so when the next patient comes along he'll have more knowledge on how to proceed. I'm thinking its the same Dr. you've had all along?

I think he's a good guy and I think this experience will allow for him to be a more knowledgeable Dr. in the future.

I was worried about the chelation but it sounds like they're giving you some support and going slow with it. I feel really good about your new Dr. and I'm so glad you found him. :)

Its good that you finally got tested for the metals....I dont think you would have gotten very far w/out taking care of that...and it sounds like theres ALOT! :blink:

So far I havent done anything for parasites but I know that its an issue and as soon as I start moving these metals out I'm gonna make sure I have my Dr. start treating me for the parasites. I'm pretty sure I've *seen* some parasites :unsure: ....even though they never showed up in any of my stool testing.

Stupid creatures! :angry:

Thanks--I'm thinking the same thing...

I haven't heard from Judy yet--and I hate to call over there right now. She may be resting or not up to talking--if she's even home yet.

If I hear anything, I'll post :)

Heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, platinum, arsenic and lead in our environment collect in our cells and when present in elevated concentrations, suppress our cell's normal ability to utilize oxygen. Reduction of cellular respiration often triggers increased yeast proliferation to compensate for this reduction in energy production. Yeast overgrowth in bodies challenged by high toxic metal levels, can be understood as the body's desperate attempt to protect itself against the ravaging effects of heavy metal poisoning. In such cases, the heavy metal load on the system must be reduced to free the system of long-term yeast overgrowth. Individuals with high levels of heavy metals are likely to suffer if attempting to clear yeast / fungal overgrowth, before first addressing their elevated heavy metal levels effectively. When yeast is attacked in such cases, the underlying heavy metal toxicity may cause symptoms of considerable unwellness. Such symptoms and signs are most often misinterpreted as yeast die-off reactions.

this could definitly explain why i always felt I was having die off yet i still had the candida

Ok thats my scientific contribution for the day

Excellent scientificness Mia!! :D

This is what I strongly believe as well....that when we're killing off the bugs we are at the same time releasing the metals into our system.

Thats what Klinghardts theory is all about. That the yeast are actually absorbing the metals and protecting us from a lethal environment of heavy metal toxicity. So yeah...then when we kill off the yeast....we're feeling bad because we've released a bunch of metals into our system. :o

The other bugs also can bind with metals but...like you posted....different types of bugs bind better with certain metals. Its interesting about the bacteria binding with aluminum and the viruses binding with the other metals.

It definately looks like the key to getting rid of infections is getting rid of the metals. It makes more and more sense to me everyday.
