I'm trying to detox from mercury. Last summer, I took fish oil before I knew I had a mercury problem, and the result was nasty problems in my head - possibly as a result of the fish oil containing ALA, which took mercury from my body and deposited some of it in my brain. (I had dental Amalgams in at the time, so they may have taken mercury from them)
Months later, I tried oil pulling. Using coconut oil. After I did, I experienced the same symptoms again. I still had my Amalgams in at the time.
I looked up stuff regarding coconut oil and if it crosses the blood brain barrier, and apparently it does. I may have accidentally - again - taken mercury and deposited some of it in my brain via oil pulling through whatever part of coconut oil passes the blood brain barrier.
Well, I'm thinking of trying oil pulling again, but this time as a form of chelation to just suck the mercury out and remove it. What do you know about mercury chelation via oil pulling? What oils do NOT cross the blood brain barrier, allowing me to safely pull out only the mercury that is not in there? My goal is to remove enough mercury that I can later afford to safely use blood brain barrier-crossing ingredients to pull the remaining amount out.
Hmm, why do you think oil pulling will chelate? Just curious where you learned this. What kind of symptoms do you get? Also, your fish oil has ALA in it?? are you sure it's not Alpha Linoleic Acid, and not Alpha Lipoic acid?
Regarding oil pulling, I dont believe that it "Pulls" anything from your body but I haven't done extensive research on it so i'll have my reservations about it but with an open mind. But I do know the concept of it by those who believe in it and the mechanism is that the oil PULLS toxins out. The oil doesn't get absorbed and go to the brain or anything like that. My theory is that oil pulling does work in some cases because it has the ability to saponify and turn white, which is essentially soap. Soap is saponified oil. And it thoroughly cleans the mouth of any bacteria or toxins so that's true. I have yet to see any medical evidence or logical argument of oil in the mouth being able to travel all the way through the salivary glands and pick up toxins that are being excreted out of the liver or any other part of the body and then back to the mouth and then spit out. If so, that oil in your mouth should be black and smell horrendous. I also believe that the benefits seen with Liver Flushes are essentially the same thing, which is saponified oil turned soap and cleaning the GI tract and inducing diarrhea or toxin release. Not a fanboy of anything or a hater of anything natural, people who know me know that I prefer to do everything the natural way but that's just my POV on this subject.
I'm not sure how much OP works for chelation - it's not really known for it. But I've recently started using Bentonite clay for getting rid of radiation, and that stuff REALLY does the job with chelation.
I've been ingesting it, but tried a footbath with the stuff last night (I know, how gay is that?) but the effects were astounding. It's inexpensive too. Yerba Life brand of drinkable Bentonite clay is from $6-$8 depending on where you shop. And the Aztec brand of the powder is about the same price.
I just got it and used it about 20 minutes ago. I think I might be having detox symptoms right now - kinda fatigued in a weird way, hard to describe. I've read good things about it. So this AND the Heavy Metal Cleanse product I've been using will help remove the mercury in a big way?
How much do you need to do a foot bath, and how do you do it exactly? I might try it sometime.
Hmm interesting. I'm not trying to be a naysayer at all and if it works, more power to you but I believe activated charcoal and Bentonite clay are mostly to adsorb organic matter and has no/little effect on heavy metals. It could help with other detox and candida or bacterial issues though. Any input on this?
