Re: Having doubts about chelation
"You said you've had less impressive gains in memory, mood, brain fog, and tolerance to foods...."
== I've had gains in those areas which I appreciate very much. It is just that those gains are not as impressive to others as an 8% improvement in bone density that was previously unresponsive to my doctor's medicine and supplements. That is something that is well documented--broken leg without contact at age 43 plus subsequent DEXA scans. Also being weaned off of my last medication (Adderall) is also somewhat impressive since the doctor was involved in it.
== The better "tolerance to foods" is mostly in the area of sweets--reactive hypoglycemia-like symptoms that I've had for 15 yrs. I can now cheat at Christmas without badly "crashing" and looking like a stupid space cadet.
"I do sometimes feel noticeably better than before..."
== Honestly much of my first 10 months I spent wondering if I was just having a good week or if I was imagining one improvement or another. Ups and downs during the first year are common for people. They'll get some gains then overdo it with dosing and have a setback with candida or adrenals, etc. It was not until about 10 months when it was really clear that I was indeed getting better and that the gains were not some temporary fluctuation. It was a wonderful time of my life.
== I'm sorry I don't have any quick fixes for you. Cutler discourages us from using Liver Cleanses
since many of us have liver problems and the cleanse might have something in it that will be problematic. He has a few suggestions in his book including what you are taking.
== People who are sick enough that they are struggling to hold down a job often benefit from 3 yrs of chelation.
== Good luck.
