I am new here to post on Curezone, I have learnt a lot of helpful info here, so thank you for this wonderful site. I am in my 30's and have severe CFS symptoms, MCS, food intolerances, have for a long time now and having a very hard time now. To the point that I have not been able to study/work for a while and rely on relatives and caregivers for support. I do vitamins and minerals, and try to listen to my body. I am trying Ayurveda remedies and it seems to be helping.
It is more like AF now really. It is hard even to type this I have all sorts of symptoms and so fatigued and stress keeps getting higher and higher with people who don't fully understand my condition. They keep being abusive, and not listening to me even though I try to communicate as clearly as possible. They keep pressuring me to get better even though my health situation is complicated.
I am so upset and unhappy. Lately feels like my condition is spiralling, though I try to be positive and hopeful about my condition.
Tried conventional meds but have not worked for me, some having bad reactions like being floxed. Since I have only started alt therapies recently felt like reaching out to some who are wiser than me. Everything is new.
Some support, encouragement and kind words appreciated and I respectfully request please no unfriendly comments, since I am going through a really bad time now in every possible way. I will post more soon when I have the energy. Thanks for reading.
I'm so sorry there are abusive people you are having to deal with on top of this illness. Unless someone has been through it, it can be so difficult for them to understand what this illness is like. It is truly an awful illness, and you sure need some encouragement having to deal with this on a daily basis.
Here's a post by someone from the Daily Strength website I posted above. I love this post called "The Unsung Hero Award". Hopefully it will encourage you too:
Last June I had been trying to detox heavy metals. I had taken Powdered Zeolite Pure and then started also on Humifulvate, Complete Metal Cleanse by Enzymatic Therapy.
In fairness to these products, at times I took more than the recommended dose of the Humifulvate because I thought that it was helping me and was simply a natural product, so less of a risk. Stupid me.
In July I started to get severe dizzy spells which lasted till mid August. Then I retried the Humifulvate to try to change whatever it had done to me. When I did the dizziness decreased significantly, but then I got these horrible jolts which occured at night right before falling asleep. They were like lightning convulsions!! Really horrible. Then I retried the Humifulvate to try to change this and I got less of the jolts, but shifts in my body during the day, pain in my hands, jerks and trembling.
When I finally got to a practitioner he told me I had depleted my electrolytes and to start taking salt immediately. The salt and other supplements helped, but the one thing that has been helping me has been iodine.
I can't express to you what a nightmare this has been. If it hadn't been for the Iodine (and the salts) I don't know what would have come of me.
What did the Humifulvate do? Or the preceding Zeolite?
Apparently, rid my brain of electrolytes. Or suck the Iodine right out. Getting these back has not been an easy road. I get Bromide detox symptoms and can only take very little of the life saving Iodine at a time.
Perhaps these products are good in a certain context. Perhaps they are better than other things. But if you are already a sick person and happen to deplete your electrolytes while on them BEWARE!!!!
I had a different experience with humic acid. I'm taking the Active Liquid Minerals brand http://www.4alw.com/liquid-minerals/
Overall, this is a great supplement. This supplement reduces heavy metal and candida\fungus symptoms. The problem I have is when I forget to take the supplement, I experience severe constipation, lasting several days, even weeks. Does anyone out there know why humic acid causes these symptoms?
It could be die-off. I know both zeolite and humic and fulvic acids can create die-off if you are toxic enough. Constipation is common with die-off.
To the other poster, I have never heard of humic and fulvic acid doing this. What you described to me sounds more like die-off also. If you have heavy metals in your brain and you start to chelate them, you can go through a healing crisis. Dizziness, is not uncommon with a healing crisis and I'm pretty certain the being shocked feelings you are common too with heavy metal toxicity. I know I have them with lyme and sometimes my hand and legs will jerk by themselves, and it sometimes feels like a jolt. I also have heavy metal issues so I'm sure this could be contributing to it as well. I have been using zeolite which has humic and fulvic acid in it. This particular product has been getting lots of recognition and I think awards. I am definitely having die-off. I've wanted to sleep all day and I feel like I have the flu, i.e. runny/stuffed up nose, alternating sore throat, headache, feeling more tired than usual, asthma kicked up, etc. Besides the zeolite, I am also taking an anti-parasitic and stuff for candida, so it's probably just a big whammy hitting me all at once.
I don't doubt that die off can cause many types of symptoms including neurological ones like shaking and having your hands move suddenly. In my case though, I have certainly had die off symptoms before, but never with the neurological responses. I have also had symptoms from mercury exposure, as when I had my Amalgams removed, and they were also bad, but not the same sort of thing. At least in my case, no neurological symptoms.
Though I think the Zeolite Pure which I had been taking first did lower my electrolytes (at least a hair analysis at the time seemed to show this clearly) even though it was helpful to me!!, it was the addition of the Humifulvate to my protocol that seemed to really knock me into severe neurological symptoms (which I didn't have any of with the zeolite). And I mean severe dizziness, extremely severe jolts at night, severe shifts and convulsive movements and pain in my hands and on and on, a true waking nightmare.
It seems, like I mentioned, that the one key factor which is helping me has been taking Iodine (and iodide). Which could point to the Humifulvate having the effect of removing Iodine from the brain (at least in my case).
I am not saying that all humic and fulvic acids would have the same effect. I do not know! Perhaps the effect of each will vary according to chemical composition. One thing I read though is that the actual mechanism by which these act in the body is unknown.
So....please, if using any of these be Extremely Careful for your own sake.
It does though me wonder if the makers of Humifulvate ever heard of such cases in their own country??? And if so did they simply dismiss them as having to do with something else? Not bothering to look into it too much?
Does Humifulvate have an affinity for iodine?
Whatever it does it seems it could possibly put a susceptible individual through HELL and cause very real damage, as in my case. Or even at low doses can it cause some sort of undetected low grade injury? Even in otherwise healthy individuals?
The research to answer this will probably have to wait for many years to come.
an update with some good news and perhaps a treatment that could further help anyone experiencing brain difficulties
so it has been over 2 years since I posted these emails
I have been on the Sea Salt and Iodine protocol which has continued to help me, though at a very slow rate
the damage I wrote about has continued to get better, less soreness, but the upper left portion of my brain still remains very very sore and I have difficulty driving and still with moving (even walking more than half a block) or lifting (because the lifting seems to cause? pressure in the same area), in summary it has been a very slow hellacious healing process
though perhaps some good news:
some potential help for brains and good news is that a treatment based on phosphatidyl choline (which I take as liquid sunflower based lecithin) and also a combination of sunflower and flax oils seems to also (besides the iodine) be helping my brain!! it seems to have sped up the healing process and I have less pain/soreness and greater ability to move!! which has been life saving for me
so I thought I would report this along with these entries
if you are having brain complications like I have reported here perhaps it could help you as well?
I get the oils from Lekithos and Body Bio (and don't make any money whatsoever from it)
also, I learned this from the Patricia Kane protocol which is related, but I only have taken the oils orally and not intravenously (as they do in that protocol), I think for me it might be way too much to take anything intravenously at this point
well, I hope this may be of help to anyone going through a similar experience, it seems as part of all this complication, my brain was starving for oils???
I had a question regarding the humic/fulvic acid drink you were taking. I also suddenly have severe constipation from drinking it. How long did it last for you and was it all the time? Is it permanent?
Hi, I'm hoping to get suggestions from other health seekers for detoxing mercury while I still have dental fillings (too many and 2 caps plus 1 root canal)plus exposed to other mercury sources. Yes, I know the fillings need to be removed ASAP BUT unfortunately that can NOT happen yet -- since, I am very sick and highly allergic & have severe chemical allergies. I've have chronic fatigue, chronic EBV, Lupus, thyroid/hormone problems, underweight, lower leg swelling, TMJ, etc. The past week a new symptom showed up a small hard lump on left palm and now another one is forming -- I read hands and feet is where the body tries to detox. My goal is to detox enough that my body can strengthen enough to get my fillings out and then continue to detox and overcome the virus' and re-balance my body.
The first step is safe detoxing for heavy metals to get to a point where I can do the dental work. There is much writings on dental protocols for safe removal and detoxing but limited information on how to DETOX when that is not possible yet. I hope that curezone can give me some insights. Here are some of the things that I have researched that seem to be alright to use WITH dental fillings. Algin, foot detox pads, Clays, foot bathes, Epson Salts baths and foot baths,oil pulling, activated charcol, vit. C. Any one have EXPERIENCE with these? Or know of other safe detoxing (vitamins, herbs, etc.) with fillings?
Thank you for your response. I really liked what I'm reading about the magnetic clay and will try it out. Do you feel this was the best thing that helped before getting your fillings out? Do you remember how often you used the magnetic clay? Did you try anything else, too?
It is ABSOLUTELY critical that you start ingesting cilantro and/or cilantro oil EVERY DAY. Cilantro helped to save my mom's life while she was detoxing from her 16 Amalgam fillings.
My mom was able to cure herself from 18 years of bipolar disorder (yes, bipolar disorder!) thanks in part to an herbal cilantro tincture that helped to chelate the heavy metal from her body.
Although I don't have personal experience with taking cilantro regularly, I can highly vouch for what helped my flesh and blood.
DO NOT TAKE CILANTRO WHILE YOUR AMALGRAM FILLINGS ARE STILL IN. Cilantro will pull mercury from the fillings and it will be a never ending story. First you have to get rid of the source, then you can use cilantro with a biding supplement.
Hi Peace: Did your mom take cilantro while she had the fillings still in?
Hi Bgone: yes, I have heard that. I certainly do not want to make things worse..... the sad thing is I can not get the fillings out until my body can get stronger. I need to know how to manage (any leaking mercury, etc.) and DETOX chemicals/ metals without adding to the damage. I'm not sure I want to risk taking cilantro while my fillings are in ( I have a lot of them) but willing to listen to and appreciate all research and experience on this.
HOPING to hear more about this subject as I don't think I'm alone in not being able to get the fillings out yet (due to sickness or finances) and still need to somehow manage the damage and toxins UNTIL they can be taken out. There must be some things available?
I agree with peacenow84, as Cilantro has been the most helpful and life saving chelator for me after the Amalgam removal and also you might want to try chlorella to get rid of heavy metal toxins.
Best of luck..
I used to lurk on CZ years ago because I had some adrenals problems. What I really should have done is fix my thyroid but live and learn. Anyway I was actually doing better over the years until within a matter of a month I was pretty much house bound. I was having work stress and stress from two of our dogs fighting. I then started going through peri-menapause and was feeling kinda off. I went to a hormone doctor to get things straightened out. They gave me hormones and I took a tiny bit and it completely debilitated me. My thyroid wasn't right so my body could not handle it and the stress I was going through had worn me down over time. This all seemed to happen at once but it was years in the making.
I went into fight or flight I started have panic attacks multiple times a day. I started having, sensitivities to supplements, hair loss, cold extremities, night sweats, chronic sleep problems, massive digestive issues, tingling, gurd, Weird sensations in my head, felt like I was in a daze like brain fog, memory loss, hives, and MCS. I couldn't go anywhere because the noise, the lights the activity would be too much for my brain to handle. I couldn't look at a band aid without freaking out. I thought I was going to die. I lost 18lbs. I became obsessed with Googling symptoms, which at the time made me worse because it added to the stress. What I know now' but did not know then, is that my limbic system was becoming damage from all the stress that used up my bodies resources like minerals, amino acids and B vitamins. My thyroid wasn't up to handling all the stress and I found myself so sick I thought I was going to die. I couldn't do much at all and I was so scared.
I had an alternative doctor at the time that was at her wits in with me. She happened to hear about a program that a couple of her other patients with MCS and symptoms like mine had stumbled upon and were having progress with. I started the program because I was so desperate. What is program was about was brain retraining. I had damage my brain in a way through chronic stress. My out of kilter hormones and stress from starting to get sick magnified that brain damage and sent me into a downward spiral. I had to work very hard to reverse my brain out of that fight or flight path and back into normal life. I won't lie it took a lot of work and it was hard hard work. As I did the brain retraining I saw my mind go from a very dark place back into the light again. When I finally could take supplements I started focusing on amino acids. That was another piece of the puzzle. Stress depletes our amino acids that our body uses to combat stress and keep us calm. It took me a little under a year to build up my amino acids again.
It took me a year and a half to completely heal my brain and body. I no longer have anxiety. I don't take anti depressants. I have completely recover and my huge list of symptoms have disappeared. I have gained weight back and I hike, bike and do kettlebell work out. Limbic system impairments are connected to AF, CFS, MCS and PTSD. Not alot of doctors are talking about this and you have to really look to find the information. I was incredibly lucky that my doctor had know about it. I am posting this hoping that it will help someone out there. Anyone going through mental stress, a physical illness coupled with emotional stress, mold exposure, head trauma, can have this happen to them.
I am not sure I fully understand your question but I will try to answer it. When I became extremely ill I could not take any supplements I was having reactions to them. My downward spiral was triggered by stress but understand stress comes in a multitude or forms:
Trauma physical or mental
A Bad Relationship
Basically anything that causes stress mental, physically and/or emotional. Overtimes we were down our bodies resources to deal with stress and our brain also becomes altered because of stress. I had two other friends that experienced the same thing. Both were in very stressful relationships and after a year of the stress from the relationship all of a sudden they were so sick they could not leave their homes.
I did a brain retraining program called DNRS. I also worked with one of their coaches. A lot of it's contents deals with altering the brain by building new neuro pathways. The program does have a lot of fluff in it. The coach actually helped me more. The basis is rooted in positive thinking but it's strategically done along the lines of mindfulness. You really do have to stick with it and practice it daily. I was so bad it was a 24/7 job. Mindfulness sounds simple but try doing it on a mind that keeps wanting to go down the dark path. There is lots of Science behind it too. They go over a lot of it in the program. For some people it might be harder to apply and understand how to get on top your your thoughts and emotional responses. It's the emotional responses that release hormones. The more emotions/stress the more you use up your resources. That is when we downward spiral and start having fatigue, digestive issues, brain fog etc... This worked wonders for me and it was my miracle. I probably had an advantage with the brain retraining because I worked in the positive thinking industry when I got so sick. Kinda funny really that it ended being the answer. I had never heard of DNRS or brain retraining.
There is a book For amino acids called The Mood Cure. I used gelatin because I could not take pills without zapping my energy. It also helped my gut issues. I also did bone broth. Later as I healed I was able to add more supplements. So those where L-theanine, Gaba and Tryptophan and a protein powder with a wide range of amino acids. Later I added B complex. I also worked on processing past stress. I found a technique after I had healed 70 percent that deals with processing old stress and I really think it changes brain pathways as well. It's called The Hamr. The Hamr is pretty amazing.
When you have these issues going on you still may need to find if there is a virus, bacteria or other health issue. But it is really important to not pay attention to the stress that causes. I know easier said than done. I was horribly sick I knew I had to do something. All people don't get as sick as I was. They may be able to work and function more but have a horrible reaction to mold. Your brain gets used to taking the stress pathways. It's like an addiction. It starts really getting attached to what is wrong and being in a state of alarm. Week by week as I changed my thoughts and my actions I saw little improvements. They were not huge leaps but I was super crazy mentally and very sick physically. As my emotions got better the inflammation it cause went down in my body and my brain.
So I did brain retraining for 1.5 years. I did amino acids for a little less than a year. Also at about one year I went to a Chiropractor that worked with Standard Process products. She helped me heal my kidneys, liver, spleen and other organs that were stressed.
Nice to see you here and good to hear you're fully healed! Must have been quite a journey of frustration but also of learning and improving ones self. At the end I hope this was all for the best.
I'm 1 year in and haven't made that much improvement but I do know that my main problems are mercury/copper + mineral imbalance. I have one last Amalgam to get removed out of 6. I'm working really hard on liver detox - coffee enemas and Liver Flushes and kidney too.
I though my main issue was adrenal fatigue initially but I was wrong. they might be slightly affected only.
It's gonna be one tough ride to detox from these heavy metals though.
Hoping to be fully healed in 1 or 2 years by doing a nutritional balancing program.
So glad to hear from you. I was wondering who was still here, but not hoping you were. :) I know a lot of people do the nutritional balancing program. I heard good things about it and have a couple friends who have seen much improvement. I know it's hard putting all the puzzle pieces together.
Yes my experience was so bad, but I came back from it. I was bound and determined. I figured out my AF was more stress and thyroid. I actually have three mercury fillings broken in my mouth right now. Scary but I am fine. I am going back to work so I can get on the dental stuff taken care of.
Just keep the faith that you will heal and your body is a detoxing machine. I was taking SP chelator and charcoal based supplements for awhile. I really should go back on those. I was just trying to cut down on $ out. I think I do need to detox more. It helps the thyroid.
yeah I'm still here...unfortunately haha. but what is 1 year of trial/error and discovering our health condition. a year ago I was pretty clueless - now I have learned much from a lot of people and nutritional balancing seemed to solid approach for getting rid of excess metal/ re-balancing the body's biochemistry.
I would look into maybe getting those cracked fillings out since they are leaking more poisonous mercury into your body - the removal process isn't actually bad at all. I did run into a couple issues but I'm glad they are mostly out.
Yes exactly - our bodies are powerful detoxifying machines...I actually say that in my positive affirmation. I'm retraining my brain/unconscious mind - trying to remove all negativity from all these year. Actually started reading the power of your subconscious mind and I can say it's pretty helpful for that.
did you have copper problems? that's a major one to get fixed for me. I believe mercury also competes with copper so it's double the problem.
You know starting out here years ago I originally thought I had a copper problem. It me years to realize it was my eating habits. I was eating a ton of chocolate and nuts and those two foods are high in copper. Also years and years ago I was on birth control and it has copper in it. The copper was giving me migraines and probably was one of the things that contributed to the attack on my thyroid.
Yes my teeth are a priority. I got to get that taken care of. I know I am going to take a big dose of charcoal before and after removal time. I also brushes a little of my gum away during my anxiety mode.
I worked in the positive thinking industry but learned such a deeper level of what different types of energy/emotions did to me when I got sick. I started reading Joe Dispenza's books which became key in what I had to do to get well.
When I was so sick my diet became so clean. I was having food reactions too. A tiny amount of Sugar would give me and anxiety attack. I am so happy your getting answers. That is one of the hardest parts figuring out what your body wants and doesn't want.
There's also a brain center that works with some similair techniques I used. It's called Carrick Brain Centers or Cerebrum Health Centers.
I won't kid you my brain retraining was very hard. I also had to ignore my impulse to worry about candida, or my gut issues or some weird prickling sensation I would have. At one point I swear I could feel bubbles floating under my skin. I had to get passed all that and just know that if I stopped all the inflammation that I set off that things would heal and eventually tiny bit by bit after freakin work work work they did.
Hey TheLaughingDogs! So great to see you are doing well! I also used to "lurk" out here quite a bit, and always enjoyed learning from your posts! I'm also doing much better. I too fell into bad adrenal fatigue from high copper. I am back to running 10K's now! I actually supplemented with copper to try to get my natural hair color darker! Bad decision! Anyway, those prickly feelings can be due to oxalates. Chocolate and nuts are high in oxalates and can cause a leaky gut to be much worse. There is a great, free Yahoo group (Trying_Low_Oxalates) you can join to learn more and gain access to a free spreadsheet showing the oxalate content in specific foods. A low oxalate diet has helped me a lot. I also found I got much better when focusing on liver detox supplements & taurine and things to help my thyroid. I now can handle Iodoral, Tyrosine, Selenium and a Raw Thyroid supplement. That along with coconut oil really improved my energy levels. Now I'm also taking small amounts of Boron to detox fluoride. I also regularly take collagen and protein powder for the amino acids that are so helpful for rebuilding & detoxing your body. I still believe mineral balancing is huge for recovery. I refer to the acu-cell.com web site often! Take care!
I heard that most people who need to supplement with Zinc actually have low copper as well.
What are the tell tale signs of too high copper? As I was reading, they don't seem too much different from deficiency in copper. Thus I'm lead to believe that it's probably impossible to say without hair analysis. Lol.
If it does really cause harm to the adrenals better to avoid it in that case.
A lot of people indeed have bio unavailable copper. Usually, if you're low in copper that means you have low ceruloplasmin - copper binding protein - and thus, your body cannot utilize the copper releasing all this free copper into the blood stream which causing cooper toxicity. I'm one of those. My hairesume analysis shows low copper and ideal zinc. So the supplements I'm taking contains zinc and copper. It could be harmful of I only took zinc.
Yes copper is a stimulant to the adrenals. But our body needs balanced levels of copper.
It's a very complicated subject as its hard to find good info on copper bio unavailability.
Thanks Angelhealing! Going back to the Oxalates. A day after we spoke about it here I noticed I was turning my heal to avoid stepping on my heel directly. Felt like a deposit on that bone in my foot. My Natural doc told me to take a high dose of Vit. K to help absorb calcium. I did that and the next day and since no more problems with my foot. Not sure if it was the Vit. K or a coincidence. Next time it happens I will see if it works again.
I remember you Angelhealing. Wow running 10Ks that is awesome!! Your right about the Oxalates. Very insightful of you. I had a prickly feeling and it seems like it was floating around through my blood steam. I put that together with getting kidney stones when I alkalize so I narrowed it down to calcium crystals. I actually have to keep myself a little on the acid side so they don't crystalize. I don't supplement with calcium anymore. I will check out that Yahoo group for sure.
I did end up having to take Naturethroid. I am trying to rev up my thyroid with coconut oil and am on week 3 with larger doses. I sure don't get hungry and have smooth energy throughout the day with coconut oil. I don't eat carbs or Sugar at all really. I also added Brazil nuts and Iodine. I had to cut back on the Brazil after one week because they were giving itching fits. I guess I had enough Selenium.
Hi. I'm trying to narrow down the countless treatment options for MCS. My reactions seem different than most. I am reacting to foods ( I only have 6 safe foods), supplements, chemicals etc,,
What type of reactions would you get to supplements? Since my reactions are more with the autonomic nervous system , do you feel the Carrick Brain Center would be helpful?
Any insight is greatly appreciated as I am determined to heal. I don't want to take supplements or do IV treatments that will make me worse.
Sorry it took me so long to reply I had quit a bit come up to take care of at home. Anyway I took was not typical with my MCS. I was told nobody has typical MCS. Everyone with it will have their own unique versions of it. It's your brain reacting to a elevated state of stress. MCS can start out with one thing it's reacting to and gradually take on others. What makes that happen is that when we start having more health issues it increases the stress then in turn your brain picks out more things to be afraid of. We are reacting emotionally at some level sending those signals to the brain and the brain gets stuck in that state thinking that's what it's supposed to do to help us out. It started for me with supplements, then as my body because more stress my digestion started to go and it moved to foods. Then it started on smells.
I would call the Carrick Brain center and see what their program involves. I would also think there would be an ongoing training or practice you would have to do to work on the thoughts. Every Time we have thoughts about our MCS it tells the brain to keep on it's current program. To break that cycle you have to start sending it the messaging with your thought and emotions that things are back to normal.
I worked a year and a half on my thoughts. I had to completely let go of every though and action that let my brain know I had MCS. I could not even use certain words. If you react to name of the foods you can't eat you change that or just don't think about it at all. I didn't even talk about my MCS at all or did any research on my health. I couldn't even let my brain start the thought. It was a lot of work but way worth it to get a normal life back. All the best to you and let me know if you need any other information or have questions. I have some processes I use now for my brain and I can send them to you.
You might want to have your brain checked out since you have a tendency to pick on people and be little them contentiously. You don't seem to be completely healed since you display this behavior repeatedly. It is a sign that something is out of balance with you.
I realize that I may be over reacting a bit in this post, but I have asthma and small pets but yea.. so the past hour and a half have been pretty stressful for me.. I'll keep it as simple as possible:
I accidentally broke a light bulb that has mercury in it.
SO i was just sitting around with some netflix, when i decided my living room was too dim. I then went to grab a lamp, and decided to take one of the bathroom light bulbs. I unscrewed the lamps basic lightbulb and put it aside. I then begin to screw in the new lightbulb with the mercury in it. while the lamp was on i was screwing this bulb in and I mustve used to much force, because the thing cracks right in my hand.. It doesn't cut me, but shortly after i realise that it has mercury in it, and i recall somehwere along the way i learned to not touch mercury for whatever reason. The bulb didn't shatter anywhere to my knowledge; it seemed contained in the lamps "bowl" fixture thing, so no major cleanup was done. I do want to mention that the "break" was near my face, about 3 feat away, so I fear that I may have breathed it in. I started holding my breath maybe 30-40 seconds after realising what just happened. All I did after the break was dispose of the bulb, and I put my lamp on my porch; didn't bother cleaning it because I was too paranoid to do so. AFter getting the bulb and lamp out, I immediately grabbed my box fan and pointed it out the door. I used the fan to air it out for maybe 20 minutes before i decided "maybe some fresh air coming in the house will help desolve it or something" so I point the fan inward after that for a little while, then back to blowing outward. all the while my central ac/fan was on, so I was worried it might have spread. I then went to the other room and box fan aired out that one too. it's definitely been around 2 hours now and I have been constantly airing out all the rooms, mainly the living room where it happened.
-I broke a bulb with mercury in the living room. It was thankfully contained in the lamp's "bowl fixture", so no glass got anywhere but in the lamp. It was also a very small break, the bulb was basically 70% intact.
-The lamp was on and I was screwing around with the bulb for maybe 20-30 seconds before I stop and pursue cleaning", so I am worried that more mercury was vaporized and put into the air.
-I grab a box fan and air out the room for the next 20 minutes or so.
-I was worried my ac unit perhaps carried some of the mercury through to another room, so I went to air out my room for maybe 15 minutes as well through a window.
-Due to physically touching the break area and the bulb for roughly 30 seconds, I thought I should wash my hands, so I did multiple times and also took a shower shorly aftter
Currently, 2 hours after the break my fan is still out in the living room blowing outward.
Did I handle this situation properly, or was it nothing to worry about to begin with? I just want me and my ets to be safe and I gotta get some responses..
I developed MCS over the last year or so and through all kinds of detoxing discovered oil pulling here.
After oil pulling for a few days I got an excruciating tooth ache. I wasn't even sure what tooth it was from. The dentist ex-rays revealed nothing, so i went home with pain killers. i made the oil pulling connection and know about healing reactions so i stopped pulling and the pain went away. I had a dentist appointment a few weeks later so started oil pulling again hoping to heal any problem. This time the pain was so bad that i was eating pain killers like candy.
The dentist replaced two fillings thinking it may have been a recent loosening. He replaced the back tooth filling and i begged him to replace the next one, just in case. I had a terrible reaction to the Novocaine (my eye blurred and I shook, but that's a different story). So i waited a while and started OP sesame oil and peppermint every other day, no pain. Then, every day and suddenly i noticed a white puss bubble next to my back tooth. It was frightening. There was no pain, so i drained it and swished with H2o2, Redmond's salt and peppermint. It went away. About a week later, it came back-same deal. Now it has come back every 3-7 days and i am oil pulling twice a day. It doesnt hurt and I feel fine, but it is awful to have infection in your mouth. BTW, That is the spot where I had my wisdom tooth pulled.
I don't have the $ for a cavitation surgery and frankly i am not convinced that this OP isn't an amazingly strong detox to suck this infection from way down in my jaw.
I am thinking I will give it a while and then go to my regular insurance paid dentist (who I am not crazy about)and let him do what regular dentists do in this situation. Your experience and advice is welcome!
After all the pain you've attributed to oil pulling its amazing you're still so dedicated. Remember, though, to try other oils if your not getting good results with what you're using. I've got to wonder if the peppermint has anything to do with it but just a guess.
The jury is still out (at least around here) on whether oil pulling "pulls" toxins and other stuff from the body. But it's pretty clear that all types of germs in the mouth can be dealt with by oil pulling. Abscesses, tooth infections, gum disease can be dramatically treated with OP. In fact all by yours truly at one point or another.
If you try mixing in as many drops of oregano oil as you can tolerate with your usual oil, you'll find infections get dealt with much quicker. Oregano oil is a powerful germ killer. But keep it all up - I'd put big bucks on daily oil pulling doing more for your oral health than any number of dentist visits at the end of the day.
Yes, OP can draw out an infection. This has been posted many many times. Have you thought about Oil of Oregano instead of the peppermint? It's a powerful antibiotic. Use for 10 days only though, just like an antibiotic.
Just think about it. If you had that infection lingering in your gums, most likely you were introducing it to the rest of your system, without even knowing you were doing so. That heavy duty bacteria could cause so many other problems systemically.
Now you are pulling it out and spitting out the bacteria.
All I can say is....good for you!!
I know others on here that have had infections, and I'm hoping they will come around and talk about their experiences as well.
Thanks for the response. Detoxing is so eye opening. No one knew i had a gum infection. Doing coffee enemas revealed all of the parasites and some worms that i had. To look at me, I am perfectly healthy! Then suddenly I had Multiple Chemical Sensitivity...
When My MCS was at its worst (it is 85% better now) I had elbow pains and eye twitching and my lungs have had issues, 1 asthma attack and general lungs not feeling great.. I looked up tooth meridian and elbow and lungs and sinus are on that tooth area.
so interesting. I am counting on this gum infection ending soon...
Hi! My names Tyler. I'd like to know more about this as I apparently have an infection in one of my teeth close to the front. And it sucks cause my dream is to be an actor. I've been oil pulling with clove oil and oregano oil for about a week now. And I feel like it's healing it right up. Any suggestions? I'm going to do everything I need to do to avoid a rc. Please feel free to pm me or reply back on here. Hope to hear back from you soon. Thank you so much.
"No, if it could no one would bother having surgery."
Only if everyone knew about all the benefits of oil pulling would that be true. And we all know that couldn't be further from the truth. OP pulls all kinds of nasty stuff out of the mouth.
Anyone with root canals should be oil pulling - and using a few drops of oregano oil at least once a week. I even rely on pulling oregano to absorb throughout my body and kill germs instead of antibiotics when I'm sick. It works faster, better, and is WAY healthier than oral antibiotics.
So if the oregano can absorb throughout the body, you know anything in the mouth/jaw area would absorb much more. Try it and see.
Also oil pulling with a few drops of Grape fruit seed extract or Thyme oil, oregano or even tree oil ( just a couple drops) is amazing. I used both sesame oil and organic virgin coconut oil white makes the whites of your eyes super white. I have a root canal from a few years back that does not look infected on the xrays but hurts I the dentist said there is only one way to know is take it out. I know this has been making me deathly ill so I'm going to a holistic dentist who will refer me to his oral surgeon the the oral surgeon will NOT do a root canal he will do an implant I want this done as fast as they can do it.
Thank you for your story. I think it goes to show you that when you have a hidden tooth infection that is making your sick and the dentists cannot locate it, but you know it is a hidden dental infection the best way is figure out where the hidden tooth infection is start oil pulling today and it become very clear very fast which tooth is infected.
In response to what to do for the infection I would book ASAP with a biological /holistic dentist and get ozone injections into the site it will kill all infection on contact and ozone will kill all infection at the site One shot with my city dentist in 2013 cost 45. that is cheap just have it done, my dentist suggest four visits to be sure he killed the infection, I guess some people like laser to disinfect but I don't know enough about it

Last year out of no where I had a BAD toothache and since I have no insurance, the cheapest thing to do was to pay to have the tooth pulled. I ended up having dry socket which is the most excruciating pain I've ever felt...I've always said I'd have my children over before I'd choose to have another tooth pulled.
Well just recently (about 5 days ago) and suddenly the gum in between two of my teeth became swollen. It wasn't painful or uncomfortable it just felt weird, at first. Each day it would swell more, it became red, uncomfortable, painful to touch and bled while brushing.
I had no clue what it might be so I went online and happened upon oil pulling specifically with coconut oil. I became excited because I have an abundance of different extra virgin, unrefined, cold pressed, organic oils on hand and from what I read, I should get some instant relief. I did it for the first time yesterday and immediately after I spit out the oil one of my teeth next to the swollen gum began throbbing like crazy and the swollen gum was redder and bigger. I also developed a hard swelling under the throbbing tooth and a less intense ache down the length of entire gum under the tooth. Needless to say I did end up taking 2 Tylenol w/codeine just so I could sleep.
I'm hoping I had the reaction because the act of OP helps pull the infection to the surface. I will continue for a few days to see what happens. I swished with peroxide today before the OP but it is still painful and swollen (never a fever). I'm going to switch up the oil to sesame and add some tea tree essential oil and see if that helps. I will buy some oregano oil to try out as well.
Any thoughts on what you think may have been going on with my tooth before I started OP, and why you think I had the reaction after I OP are very much appreciated!
Sorry to hear that your not well. I believe that OP draws poisons /toxins to the surface and as it surfaces we are to react according. In my case I had huge boil that had to be drained. When I oil pull and get lump or bumps in my mouth .
I decide if it something serious go straight to dentist. In my case, I used essential oils and DMSO or MSM and DMSO on the area that is lumpy. I might even hold really warm salt water in my mouth, since salt is amazing to drawing infections, poisons to the surface and also has some antibiotic properties
