Joe, firstly I must let you know how timely this information has come. My mother, 2 time Breast Cancer
survivor, just got her amalgums removed today. We have been waking up to natural health and decided removing those 6 poisonous fillings was the next step.
The dentist performing the operation only supplied vitamin c and a collidal silver to help remove the mercury which I presume is inadequate to capture what was released in removal today.
== Vitamin C obviously is good. I suggest a lipid soluble vitamin such as Vitamin E.
== Selenium is far safer than silver--a toxic metal!!!! Se binds with heavy metals keeping them from causing oxidative stress.
== Se also is important for the thyroid.
So it is great timing that you turned me on to Dr. Andrew Culter. I just ordered his amalgum book and will be advising my mother on the chelating protocol recommended therein.
As for me, I am not convinced this is a heavy metals issue as I only have 1 amalgum filling,
== It might not, or it might just be a contributing factor.
== Your post on the contrast in the scans might also be a factor. In Yahoo's Adult Metal Chelation group there have been discussions on the impact of gadolinium in some scans.
== Remember there is a nasty synergistic effect when two or more heavy metals are present together.
but I already ordered the hair test and Cutler's hair test book so I will be addressing any heavy metals I may be exposed to. Eventually I will get my (1) filling removed once I read the books.
== Many people with a list of mysterious symptoms that doctors are struggling to understand take the same position. HMs can cause the symptoms so why not reduce the exposure and try detox?
== Mainstream medicine's typical approach is to just give a handful of Big Pharma meds for the remainder of your life--$$$ for them, mediocre life for you : (
At this point, I have swelling in my rhomboid muscle, right armpit. The nodes are firm and sometimes painful. The rhomboid muscle is very painful, slightly swollen, and even after 10 weeks of physical therapy I am rated at 50% usage on the right side. I was a strong (weightlifting), fit young guy 1 year ago, so the muscle issues on right side are definitely surprising.
The Epsom Salt
baths with baking soda seem to have helped with the feet swelling as that symptom has ceased but this was also around time I began acupuncture. If anyone has any more ideas, please let me know. I am constantly learning along this journey and trying to alleviate these symptoms.
== I agree, we have to look for additional leads and clues.
