so since my daughter has no fillings or root canals i could just go ahead and get started on some type of chelating for her(and myself,maybe)?
what would the protocol look like for her?"
Ananda, get some FRESH alpha lipoic acid and start out slow with your daughter, giving her a maximum of 1/2 milligram per pound of body weight every 3 or 4 hours. (except for when sleeping) (so, for example, if she weighs 100 pounds, you'd give her a MAXIMUM of 50mg of ALA every 3-4 hours, but I'd start out with 25mg, just to see how she takes it.
At the same time, give her 2000mg of Vitamin C per ALA dose, unless her tummy gets upset, then back off until comfortable. Also, give her a good quality multivitamin sometime during the day with food, and make sure she gets enough magnesium (by capsule or Epsom Salt bath) and make sure she's getting plenty of Omega 3's and 6's.
Keep her on this schedule for a minimum of 3 DAYS, then off for the next 11 days. (so you have 2 WEEK BLOCKS of scheduled chelation.
It's VERY IMPORTANT to keep the VitC level UP during the times off, and if she develops weird problems like rashes and aches and pains, etc, it's almost ALWAYS yeast-related and you can take off for a while, or try the usual grape seed extract or Black-Walnut for yeast.
You should do this for about 1 YEAR before expecting to see dramatic results. But it's not as daunting as it sounds, because it's such a low, slow method that you will fall into the routine and not even think about it. We trade "FAST and DRAMATIC" for "SAFE and EASY" with this method.
"( my husband (jo14) is loaded with Amalgam fillings however,so he is not a candidate for this unless he gets them removed, correct?)"
EXACTLY right, and make sure he doesn't take multivitamins that contain ALA either.
"i had my root canals removed 10 years ago and i have never had any Amalgam fillings. however, in 1987 i began to work at a group home for developmentally disabled adults and i had to have the hep b vaccines (3 phase)-- and not so surprisingly, things started getting bad for me right aroung that time. i also had all the normal vaccines as a kid.
i have had iv chelation w/ edta in the past probably about 30 chelation IV's. would you assume that any mercury i may have had through vaccines would be gone through those IV"S already? yet, i often wonder why i still have the cognitive issues then?"
EDTA isn't recommended for MERCURY chelation if I remember correctly, as it was developed for LEAD toxicity. I've never used it, so I can't tell you for sure.
"you mentioned that you were giving your grand kids small doses of mms. what is your reasoning for this, i would love to know?"
There's an Autism researcher named Dr. Andrew Wakefield and he hypothesized that MMR vaccines worked in tandem with mercury-toxic kids to cause autism. He actually found measle VIRUS in autistic children's guts, which I thought might be a continuing source of gut inflammation, and therefore susceptible to the considerable Antibiotic power of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement dosing. So far, it certainly hasn't hurt with our grandkids, but I believe in going slow and not quitting before a protocol has a chance to work for a while.
"so, as far as my daughter, what would you
suggest i do to get started chelating? could you reccomend specific brand name products that you have already used and provide me with a link?"
Vitacost.com is my current favorite vitamin place, but any vitamin store will do, just so long as they have a high-enough turnover to make sure their stock is rotated regularly. Check for a STRONG sulphur smell from fresh Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
Incidentally, if you just do some reading on ALA itself, I think you'll be very impressed with it as an adjunct to your daily vitamins.
hope you can respond to all my questions? thanks so much.
