If you have a mercury Hg problem but NOT a lead problem and had Amalgam
fillings removed before detox you should have gotten some gains in the first few months.
If you did not have Amalgam
removed and you previously took lots of "detox" supplements--greens, NAC, cilantro, chlorella, then I would not expect many gains in the first 6 months. They move Hg around including helping to excrete some of it, but also moving some to more vulnerable sites in the body.
If a person has a lead problem, I don't expect many gains in the first 6 months. I mostly had/have a lead and cadmium problem. I spent most of the first 8 months wondering if I was just having a better than average week, then better than average month. There was nothing really impressive. It was not until around 10 months that it was clear gains were sticking.
By 1.75 yrs I had gotten the majority of my gains but have added a few less impressive ones in subsequent years.
I wish I could tell you if you are just a slow responder or that you don't have a heavy metal problem. it is tough to know what is going on in your brain, thyroid, adrenal and other organs most vulnerable to Hg--short of an autopsy : (
You could try a followup hair test to see if it shows something interesting. My prechelation hair, and urine tests were not impressive. However after 1 and 1.5 yrs the hair tests had toxins--lead or cadmium-- in the red, but the essential elements did not look crazy.
A few people have done a provoked *stool* test while on round with ALA but I doubt they are foolproof, for example.
Do you feel a reaction to taking chelators and for a half day after the round-- maybe more lethargic, fatigue, fog, and an increase in some of your long-time symptoms? For example, some people will have an increase in their long-time tinnitus symptom while on round.
