Erethism may only be from mercury poisoning, but 'excessive shyness, timidity and social phobia' could be a symptom of many things. I could find many of my personality/behavioral traits under autism. My physical symptoms can be found under lupus, lyme disease, MS..........the list goes on.

thanks Lisa, that's more what I MEANT to say ;)

There are different protocols out there. It's hard to say what to do because everyone is different and has different needs of support for their body.

Have you looked at http://www.iaomt.org/

That website has some good info on it.

I was going to have my teeth done last fall but was unable too. I was given a protocol, but I won't say anything on that due to my first statement.

Your body would need support as well as help with the mercury that is stirred up during the removal (a toxin binder) for one. My protocol had me starting things a month ahead of when the first removal was. Read up on this and see what you can do to help you body deal with the additional mercury during this time. High protein and high veggie intake in very important, along with lots of water to flush the system.

Charcoal and chlorella are good if you tolerate them. I had tried chlorella once and it didn't go over well with me. I was muscle tested and put on another brand. It is very difficult to self treat for mercury as you can really mess up your body more if you don't detox well or your detox is sluggish.

I wouldn't recomment the cilantro because of that.

Charcoal needs to be taken away from other supps. I've never used it myself but that is what others have said.

It is very important to try and find a practitioner that can help you with this so you don't cause yourself more harm. Any naturopath's or holistic doctors near you? You need to weigh everything you're told. There is good and bad in both sides of medicine.

sorry andrea but i had to stop reading your post after you mentioned muscle testing. i had that done with neurofeedback and i never felt so intellectually insulted in all my life. just...just the idea of it.

anyways i have a question, and i hope i didn't drive rachel away with them: can you have a white filling that was done over an amalgam? i don't know if that's the case and i'll call my dentist (even though im already scheduled to get them replaced) but i have heard that they can do that.

We found out my dd was gluten intolerant thru muscle testing. There is a thread on here about it, if anyone wants to google it.

Dylan, you can PM Rachel, I am sure she would like to help you with any further questions.

I guess I should have clarified. I had ART done which is an advanced form of muscle testing developed in part by Dr Klinghardt. As with many doctors, some muscle testers are good and some are not. Sounds like you had a not.

As far as having white fillings put over the amalgam. I don't know about that. I know I have crowns over amalgam though, which I'll eventually replace.

I've had a couple of "silver" fillings replaced in the last three years. After the dentist drills out the original filling he or she can definitely replace it with a resin filling.

I don't think it's common to layer one filling over another... fillings deteriorate over time, so you need to keep an eye on them. Keep in mind that metal shows up easily on x-ray, so if (for some reason) you had one that was hidden it would definitely be possible to find it again.

..... i never felt so intellectually insulted in all my life. just...just the idea of it.

What an odd expression Mr. Moore..... B)

There is more to healing than intellect, try thinking yourself off the toilet. :lol: Sorry if I seem rude but it seems to me so much of the grief we find ourselves in is precisely because of a kind of intellectual thinking that we can put any kind of poop that passes for food in our bodies and they will just keep running and running. NOT!

Oh, but even better for big pharma is that as poisoned as we are by this poop we need more poop from them to keep going, drugs to suppress our reactions to being poisoned. I think Ritalin falls into that category.

Recently a professor from a University in Saskatchewan published a book, using the government of Canada's own studies, showed the declining nutritional content of food in Canada. He was fired and the book removed from the library and bookstore.

So, not only poisoned but starved of real nutrients.

There is seriously messed up poop happening with our food supply. Do you ever wonder about these people who just lose it, kill themselves and others, do you even wonder about their diet and what medications they are on?

As for muscle testing, I tend to think it is as good as the tester. I look at it this way, there are no solids, what appears as solid to us is constantly in motion, that is the nature of the world. Did you know that end of our lives we carry DNA from others, that throughout our lives we literally meld with others and become a part of them and they a part of us?

Who is to say what is true and what is not, we must trust our own experience but in order to trust it we must know it and that requires paying attention with a mind and body awake and aware. That is difficult if we are sick.

Please try to be a little more respectful of other's views. Human beings are incredibly complex, and what works for one person may not work for another.

Just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean it's bad.

Thanks for asking. :) I can't recall where I read that but your question sent me looking and I did find this article:

DNA

The team then measured total methylation changes in a different set of DNA samples collected from Utah residents of northern and western European descent. These DNA samples were collected over a 16-year span from 126 individuals from two- and three-generation families.

Similar to the Icelandic population, the Utah family members also showed varied methylation changes over time. But they found that family members tended to have the same kind of change-if one individual lost methylation over time, they saw similar loss in other family members.

"We still haven't concretely figured out what this means for health and disease, but as an epidemiologist, I think this is very interesting, since epigenetic changes could be an important link between environment, aging and genetic risk for disease," Fallin says."

Oddly enough, I just read that paper. My student is doing an epigenetics project and we were discussing ways to measure methylation.

I think you've misinterpreted the results. What they found was that methylation changes over time cluster in families, which suggests a genetic component to methylation (rather than a purely environmental component).

It has nothing to do with who you associate with, it's a result of who you are genetically related to.

Hi, you may well be correct but I am certain that I did read just that somewhere, but where? :huh:

What I took from the article above is that our DNA does change over our lives and that change may be affected by the environment, from there it is an easy leap for me to consider myself an environmental change. :lol:

How funny that you had just read this article. :)

Technically speaking, your DNA does not change. Methylation is more of a masking event, like closing and opening curtains that allow a room to be viewed, or not. The room doesn't change, only access to it.

i did the muscle testing with a neurologist who did the neurofeedback. she held my arm out and basically "asked it" if i needed this stuff called gabba. i had to say yes yes yes, or no no no, it didn't make sense. especially back then when i was a LOT more manic in finding a cure, i just felt like getting up and walking out the door.

Sounds like you may have had a strange experience <_<:huh:

My Lyme doctor does muscle testing when I see him (every other month) and then does bloodwork to check the two against each other and it is bizarrely accurate.

I think that your body knows things that can't necessarily be tested with current technology.

Check out some of the sites in this google search:

http://www.google.com/search?client=firefo...G=Google+Search

My problem with muscle testing is that it's very very subjective. You'd need a good practitioner, AND you'd need to be open to the possibility that it might work.

Sometimes you have to let go of conscious control of your body, and let it make the decisions.

hey guys i just found out im getting all my fillings (6) removed in one visit. here's two things im worried about:

1)my mouth is gonna kill.

2) i heard mercury could be increased but i also heard you should just get em all out right away. which im all for.

This shouldn't really be that bad. I am 'caine' resistant and you may be also. Just let the dentist know if you feel anything and he will stop and give you more anesthetic. Take an asprin or aceteminophin or something along those lines if you are worrying about pain afterwards but you shouldn't really have any.

    • People are able to find a very old topic and add to it (bumping it up to current).  We need to remember to check the dates and realize that these people from 10 years ago may not respond.  Also, remember that product info, ma be even medical info, can change in that amount of time.
    • When I was changing doctors due to insurance issues, I got one doc who I told I had celiac, and had been gluten-free for 2 years. He ordered a blood test and said I DID NOT have celiac cause the blood test came back negative....I looked at him like it was crazy, told him course your not going to detect the antibodies in test if I am not eating it. Told him to go back to med school and never went back. Similar experience with another doctor around that time....funny memory glad I found one that knows about the disease to some extent.
    • ÖThe potential celiac or  NCGS  diagnosis is given to me by the Celiac researchEr.  I do not think it's official until after we meet again.  actually I have not heard of that doctors work. I will look it up and see if I can listen to an interview. Thanks for sharing.  some of the symptoms that I continue to have Had on a strict gluten-free diet or similar to what I have now  and some of them disappeared. Of course During that time I was thrown on Xanax and some Protonix even though I don't actually have acid reflux. So there may have been some symptoms that were caused by those medications but I've been off Of Them for months now.  I guess headed pressure would be one of the more prominent symptoms  that I still had on a gluten-free diet although it's much much worse recently well I'm gluten.  it was almost like I can feel a strange sensation in my gut and the head at the same time but it's nothing like what you would think it wasn't cramping it wasn't... I don't know how to describe it. it does not feel anything like sinuses it's a really strange feeling like my brain Is inflamed Or being squeezed.  When I first started getting it it scared the living crap out of me because I thought I was going to end up passing out. I would be afraid to drive alone with my young son. Now admittedly I was diagnosed with inflammation of the small intestine in late August and was gluten free throughout the fall but started eating it again in late December. So I may not have given myself a tremendous amount of time to heal from the August duodenitis.   Currently I have pain in the right rib cage area,  I also get a tremendous amount of pressure in that area mostly when I'm sitting. Kind of like when us pregnant women had a baby's foot stuck up in that area.  I get nausea on and off, some shortness of breath, dizzy,  when my brain gets that  pressure my eyes often feel it as well, and I get some transient numbness and tingling in my hands and oddly in my face.  last summer I had Random episodes of blood pressure drops as well. I would start to really not feel well and noticed that eating actually helped those episodes. I was exercising a lot At the time but ate constantly  and was maintaining my weight. One doctor theorized it might be my blood sugar dropping so I bought a monitor but I never caught that. The only thing that I did catch was when I bought the blood pressure monitor and started taking my blood pressure when these episodes were happening.   for the most part I had pretty good health up until about a year-and-a-half ago and a very strange six months or so about 13 years ago where a lot of neurological stuff happened as well. I had vertigo, visual disturbances, eye floaters, muscles twitching, ants crawling sensation on my scull, some really strange stuff. It lasted about 6 months and over time it just went away.  except for the eye floaters, they stuck around. I'm not particularly concerned about them it's just that they were not there one day and I had some visual disturbances and Bam there they were and they never went away. I have a half-sister with MS but we ruled it out for me at that time and we also ruled it out last summer as well.   I did the whole 12-week thing that they're suggesting for your daughter. We figured the six weeks wasn't long enough.  For the most part other than a few weird things I honestly didn't get strange symptoms until the end of the six weeks so 12 weeks made sense. I think I actually ended up doing 10 weeks before the biopsy This time. Nothing but the increase in IELs.  I know they only biopsy the duodenum and I wonder sometimes if it's not just lower down. But with the negative blood work except for that one random test I don't know if it's really worth pursuing any more testing at this point. I'm so tired.  I know my brother is seronegative but that's pretty rare although I have no idea whether or not they've ever done a study on if that happens to be familial.  I also would really like to know if people who test positive for TTG 6 have any gut damaged. Because if that's the case perhaps there is no seronegative celiac disease  Have you read Dr. Fasano's work?  he writes back both Celiac and ncgs.  How long are you doing your challenge for again?  I know you may be anxious for answers as well but my suggestion just from personal experience would be to go as long as you can. 
    • I should qualify that I'm actually consuming the equivalent of 1-3 slices of bread in the form of vital wheat gluten. Sometimes I have bread, if I'm eating out. But I don't really want all of the carbs and I want to demonstrate that it actually IS the gluten causing the problems and not a Fodmap issue.  My reaction to bread and my reaction to the gluten are the same.  I'm actually shocked at how quickly things have changed. My hair is starting to thin again (boo hoo 😩), and my stools are completely different and it's only been about two weeks. The headache and dizziness and nausea are the worst.  Ennis, you are right. You would think that all of these symptoms would show on blood work. Grrr. I'm hoping that the GI I'm seeing on June 7th will run a preliminary full celiac panel.  It will only be 4 weeks by then.  Will it show something?  My sister has her PhD in immunology and I remember her saying how difficult research in immunology is because you need clearly high antibodies to demonstrate anything. 
    • I am going to have to remember this: "Doctors who fail to notice there are recalls out on their God complex". Brilliant! I'm wondering what symptoms failed to resolve?  All of them?  Some of them?  Neurological ones?  I'm sure you have read Dr. Hadjivassilou's work. I listened to an interview with him and he stated that neurological ones can take a year, and even small amounts of CC set you back. So that is something to consider.  jmg's advice is so sound. Thank you! NCGS - grrr. That one really annoys me. My daughter was first brushed off as Fodmap issues because she also had SIBO.  No one believed me that the SIBO and gluten reactions were not the same.   So she was told it's probably NCGS which is likely really a Fodmap issue.  Resolve the SIBO and she can go back to gluten. No.  Now that she is SIBO free, the neurological symptoms REALLY show through. But she also has terrible stomach pain when accidentally Glutened. Because of the neurological symptoms, now the GI says hmm, she could have celiac but just wasn't far enough along to test for it. Does she want a 12 gluten challenge?  What part of she loses the use of the right side of her body didn't you understand?  No gluten additional challenge for her.  But I have now noticed my reaction and my history of headaches and anemia and unexplained weight loss and hair thinning and stress fractures. So I'm going through the gluten challenge. It's for me, it's for my daughter, it's for  my niece and nephew who all have early symptoms that I recognize but my sister won't take seriously.  And I'm running it as a bit of an experiment.  I have eaten a low Fodmap diet for a year because of my daughter's SIBO. I purposely added high Fodmap foods first to see what happened (no gluten).  All good. I added bread, noted the reaction. I added JUST vital wheat gluten. Exact same reaction as bread.  In fact right now I'm pretty much just doing the gluten that is equivalent to a couple pieces of bread, eating bread or pasta when I occasionally go out. I am NOT going to have them tell me it's not gluten when it clearly is.  It seems that certain celiac research centers have all of their eggs in the NCGS/Fodmap basket at the peril of their patients.   Again, ironic truth, good luck with the Gluten-Free, give yourself time and be patient.  I can tell you that strict gluten-free was more than I initially thought. It took some time before we eliminated all of the CC. I was personally shock at how little it took to cause problems. I would definitely like to know how you are doing. So many people move off of the boards and I wonder how they are doing.
