i think it is funny that lam mentioned the impropriety of lawsuits in that post and then a few months ago turned around and threatened legal action against people here.
he is correct in a few things though, the body is always right.
as far as mercury or metal toxicity goes, i couldn't disagree with him more. he has marginalized the problem just because the entire western world is a toxic waste dump. that is sort of like lowering the standards of iq testing just because people are getting stupider.
he has also made mistake of comparing mosquitoes to dragons. who in their right mind would group dysbiosis or a single vitamin deficiency in the same category as mercury poisoning? mercury is the second most toxic heavy metal to human life, second only to radiation poisoning.
there are many sources of metal toxicity, Amalgams being just one of them. yes, if you dig deep you will mostly find metal toxicity -- not always -- but it is a very very good bet with adrenal fatigue. why is this a trivial matter? the sources can be vaccinations, food supply, broken lightbulbs/thermometers, even intra-uterine exposure.
the problem is that lam does not understand the treatment plans. probably because there are a lot of people out there chelating much too aggressively or not supporting the body properly while chelating which inevitably makes the patient worse off and thus villifying the whole notion of chelation or metal toxicity as an underlying cause. the wrong assumption is that ' we treated the metal issue, and look what happened, so it is obvious that metal toxicity is not underlying'. the real problem is that the metal toxicity was treated improperly. supporting the body through the process is critical... this lam has correct. but in some cases, just support is not nearly enough. you have to make sure that these metals are excreted. it doesn't matter if you chelate, but you must get these metals out of the body. a diagnosis of metal toxicity does not preclude a holistic approach -- where in the world did lam get that notion from?
the opposite is true, a diagnosis of metal poisoning absolutely requires a holistic approach.
if you read enough and dig deep enough you find that people recover from the absolute worst of the worst diseases by addressing metal toxicity -- not just adrenal fatigue... cancer, multiple sclerosis, ALS, muscular dystrophy, autism, epilepsy, and a host of more minor illnesses.
the point that seems to me obvious but lam does not address is that of dosage. how much metal do you have in you? metals accumulate, and to assume that since you don't have Amalgams or only have a few or that you can't identify a specific event that caused a problem can be a tragic oversight.
