Here's my story in a nutshell:
I started to feel sick decades ago. I often had a stuffy nose, headaches, temperature intolerance, Raynaud's Phenomenon, Eczema, chronic fatigue, an irritable bowel, Fibromyalgia-like symptoms, emotional difficulties and many other problems.
I went to doctor after doctor, and they couldn't really help me. Sometimes a doctor gave me medicine to help with a symptom; sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't and sometimes it made my problem worse. One doctor said he thought I have Systemic Lupus while another thought I was suffering from depression, even though I wasn't sad. I was mostly frustrated because of my health problems ( Depression
is, however, an often described symptom of what I really have).
Finally, I started doing my own research. I found Celiac Disease, and I tried a gluten-free diet. It helped, but only for a few months. Then many of my symptoms returned as bad or worse than before.
I discovered yeast and tried an anti-yeast diet, yeast killers and probiotics (The most effective yeast killer I've used is x-virgin coconut oil). I followed the treatment for more than a year. I felt better, but every time I broke the diet, the symptoms returned with a vengeance. I was also becoming intolerant to more and more foods (this was before I understood the need for rotating the foods on the diet). I was losing hope.
Then, the breakthrough. I discovered mercury. I discovered that silver fillings are 50-60% mercury, and the mercury is constantly leaking into a person's body. This, of course, can cause many problems, including yeast overgrowth.
I was skeptical, but I took an expensive leap of faith and had my fillings replaced and began using the cilantro and chlorella to remove the mercury from my body. It took time but after 6 months I was feeling better. I could break my diet and my reactions were relatively mild. Later I switched to the Cutler Protocol and after 12 months of cleansings, I could feel even more improvement. I used the Cutler Protocol for nearly 2 years before began alternating between Cutler and Cilantro/Chlorella. It was during times of using Cilantro/Chlorella that I experienced the most obvious improvement, but Cutler was obviously helpful too.
Now, I've been cleaning for about 4 years. Many of my symptoms are now gone or much less than before and my general feeling is much better than before. Recently I took a vacation to Cambodia. I broke my diet every day for 2 weeks. That would have knocked me out before I began the anti-mercury cleansings, but now I feel some discomfort, but it's fairly mild. I'm not ready to leave the diet completely, but my condition has improved drastically.
I even felt well enough to get engaged while I was in Cambodia. I wasn't sure I was ever going to feel well enough to consider getting married.
My only regret is not figuring this out sooner.
