Made ya look! I'm talkin' fingernail moons, people!
A talented healer I know looked at my fingernails several months ago before I started this massive parasite/halogen/metal detox. I've had no moons on my last two fingernails for 5 years. 5 years ago is when my health plummeted. It's also when my nails started getting long, delicate ridges down them (apparently a sign of calcium/magnesium imbalance).
Looking at my last 2 fingers of each hand, she told me that disappearing moons are a tell-tail sign that your kidneys are full. I did a kidney tea for 10 days, got a lot of sludgy stuff out - but my moons didn't start to come back.
I've been on Iodine therapy for about 5 weeks now. I just noticed my moons are coming back! This is so wonderful. Fluoride and Bromide are so hard on your kidneys. I'd assume they also inhibit calcium absorption. We know that Chronic Fatigue is a direct indicator of kidney sluggishness...I don't smoke or drink - so I've wondered why my kidneys were having such a hard time. Huh. 5 weeks of detoxing everything that Iodine does (seems like the list grows everyday, really) - and my moons are coming back! I have more energy than I have in years - and for the first time in 5 years...I'm not fearful about the idea of pregnancy.
It's like the fog has lifted and I don't fear that I might never really get better. This is such an amazing experience!! Woohoo!
It's partially a blood pH effect. Halogen imbalance results in reduced secosteroid "Vitamin D" availability to the kidney which in turn diminishes the ability of kidney to release bicarbonate to buffer blood, the result being a slightly lower blood pH, usually accompanied by fatigue. If you did a poll of the people who are acidic, you'd see their fingernails have no moons.
Vulcanel... are you a chemist? A nutritionist? You and Newport have the detail lock-down on conversion, chemicals - the whole deal. As an abstract thinker - you blow my brain up. Please take this the right way (it's a compliment) - every time I read your posts my thought process goes something like this "oh my God...will I ever know that much? I'm so behind the game. What is this guy's deal?!?" Did you read the encyclopedia during kindergarten recess? Yowza.
I hated school and had a hard time remaining awake in classes. I sensed that the subjet matter was often irrelevant, like "why do I need to know this ?". But in the end, at least I learned why so many "educated" people think and believe the way they do, and the info they base their conclusions on, some premises of which are false. I just like to read, what I want to read. As Mr. Clements quipped, I never let my schooling interfere with my education.
