Mercury and Our Bodies

white crx accidentIt all started with a car accident, Thanksgiving Eve, 1990. I ate the steering wheel of my little white sports car and almost died. I broke my jaw in 6 places. I split my head open. I was alone in the car (thank God). I hit a tree so no one else was injured. I was pretty messed up. I woke up after 28 hours of oral surgery with my jaw wired shut and 16 amalgam fillings…

Every tooth in my mouth was moved and a lot of the front ones were missing. I have never showed anyone my missing teeth. I do have false ones! (first public pic!)

level 10 painAfter that car accident, I had pain that would not go away. I’m talking level 10 pain that was unbearable and never-ending for years.

It was an whole body aching torture that nearly pushed me over the edge some days.

I had to go to pain management therapy to get longer prescriptions to the pain killers that allowed me to sleep at night.

Some days, I was in so much pain, I would not eat. It was too painful to move.

Anybody who has ever experienced extreme pain knows what I mean.

stop blaming yourselfI was told I had “chronic reactive arthritis” which is an all over body pain resulting from the accident that was my fault. Great. Good job, Heather. You put yourself in this pain. I remember blaming myself.

In 1996, I went back to school for nutrition to try to figure out something natural that I could do to get out of pain. I found out that if I took enough grape seed extract, the pain would GO AWAY!. I have tried tons of brands over the years. proflavanolThe one that worked the best, was USANA’s Proflavanol. Whenever I felt pain, I would take 1-3 and the pain would go away.

In 2011, my son had all over pain like mine, but he never had a car accident. When I tried giving him the proflavanol, it didn’t help. We took him to the doctor’s and he was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and they put him on 21 days of Amoxicillin. They extended the antibiotics for another 7 days when he was not well… but at the end of 28 days, we were told he was at an end result even though he was still in pain and throwing up daily. He had swelling in his joints so the doctor prescribed prednisone.

Three days later, my son was having seizures.

As any mother would do, I sought a second opinion. The pediatric infectious disease doctor we took him to examined him for 10 minutes, pulled me into another room and asked if I thought he was depressed. She said she wanted to admit my son to the hospital for depression and she had never even looked at his blood.

We found another doctor who tested my son’s blood and he had many detectable infectious diseases!

feelThat doctor tried combination antibiotics to try to get rid of some of these infections, but my son continued to decline. He lost one third of his body weight in less than 6 months and he getting sicker. His White Blood Cell count was dangerously low, his liver enzymes were dangerously high. He had constant pain that would not ease up. He couldn’t sleep, he couldn’t walk, he couldn’t read or watch TV. He was having seizures. He was throwing up and he was miserable.

The whole time he was sick, I was researching on the Internet. He had tested positive for several coinfections and eventually we found some other toxins suppressing his immune system:
Bartonella
Babesia
Epstein Barr Virus
Mycoplasma fermentans
Mycoplasma pneumoniae
Ehrlichia
KPU/HPU, a.k.a. Pyroluria
High levels of mercury, aluminum, lead and arsenic
and eventually we found toxic mold

mercuryI am going to cut a long story short. Some day I will tell the whole story of how my son got his health back – here are some of the things we did to get well.

I want to bring this blog back to mercury… because that is what this blog is about.

How does an 11 year old kid get high levels of mercury?

One doctor said it is because the mother has a toxic load of mercury and when she is pregnant, she dumps two thirds of her toxin load into the developing baby. Boys have a harder time detoxing mercury than girls, so they hold on to the mercury.

How does mom get mercury poisoning? Amalgams. 16 of them. From a car accident in 1990.

Amalgams are made up of 50% mercury and they are putting them in people’s teeth, two inches away from our brains! This mercury is constantly leaking out of “silver” fillings.

Smoking Tooth Poison Gas

I was in pain for TWENTY years — not knowing that mercury causes pain until my son got sick and he had horrible pain – then I made a connection and felt responsible for his pain.

Another reason a young child can have high levels of merucury is vaccines and flu shots. Thimeresol is used to preserve the vaccine ingredients and it is 50% mercury.

One more way a child can get mercury is in fish. My son loved swordfish and we would eat it 1-2 times a week. When he was very sick, he had bad memory problems.

And finally, we have light bulbs. These “energy efficient” light bulbs people are switching over to — they are full of mercury.

There is probably mercury in air, too. Especially if you are using fluorescent or CFL bulbs.

If you have amalgams or your mother had amalgams, you eat fish, you breathe, you have ever broken a fluorescent light bulb or you have ever gotten a vaccine. You probably have some mercury in your body.

I think detoxing mercury and other heavy metals was a big reason why we were able to heal from toxic mold poisoning, Lyme Disease and other coinfections.

Healing Naturally from Chronic Illness

The first thing we did was an ERMI test from Mycometrics… we found out that we had toxic mold.

Now you can do the HERTSMI-2 for half the money of the ERMI and plug your results into the HERTSMI scorecard and see if your house is safe to stay in. Each of us has a different tolerance level for toxins, so take that into consideration too.

We moved out and took nothing with us. I don’t think that is necessary anymore. I have found an air reactor that is allowing people to stay in their homes and regain their health.

You have to detox from whatever toxin is causing your illness.
If it isn’t mold, breathing clean air and eating clean food and using safe personal products, you are moving toward health.

You will have ups and downs,
aim for more ups than downs.

The only way out is through.
If some treatment makes you sicker,
most of the time, you can press through
and get to a better place in health.

Use the Coca Pulse Test to make sure you don’t have an allergy… and then keep on going.

When you are going through hell, keep on going.

Get the book “Clean” by Alejandro Junger
Follow that for AT LEAST 21 days…
I did 13 weeks.
You could also watch the movie “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” — but unlike the “Clean” protocol, that is straight juicing. They call it a “reboot.”

My liver and kidneys were clogged from all the toxins. Drink lemon water with lemon and xylitol, milk thistle tea, detox teas, solidago drops added to water, lots of filtered water with minerals added.

Get 2-4 bottles 4 ounce of LiverLife.
Start with one drop. Slowly progress to 60 drops, 3 times per day.

Do a Liver/Gallbladder Flush when you feel stronger and are looking for progress. If there is any question of parasites, do a parasite protocol FIRST!

Do coffee enemas with organic coffee.

Check your saliva pH – first thing every morning
before you eat or drink anything. Temporarily & artificially
raise your pH by taking baking soda:
1/2 tsp, up to 7 times a day for up to 2 weeks.
Your first morning saliva pH should be 7.34

If your pH is lower you have some kind of infection:
fungal, parasitic, bacteria, or viral

Sodium Bicarbonate: A Full Medical Review is a good book on pH

If you are not sure if you have heavy metal issues
and you are chronically ill… you probably do!
Get a Hair Test through Doctor’s Data
Use Direct Labs if you don’t have a doctor who will order this test
Then use this book to Interpret the Hair test

I’ve just learned of another way to hair test with analysis and treatment plan included with some testing — this may be a better way to detox from Heavy Metals. It makes sense to me and many people are having success with it.

Get the book “Amalgam Illness

In a neti pot, with warm distilled water,
add 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp sea salt
and 1 teaspoon xylitol. – do this up to 4x daily.

Take binders whenever you get a hit.

If you develop MCS… treat infections with
Buhner Herbs. www.buhnerhealinglyme.com
I get my herbs from 1st Chinese Herbs
I buy a pound of powdered herbs and veggie caps and make my own pills.
This saves money.

These are the main 4 herbs for Lyme Disease:

Your decision to take the herbs one at a time to see how you respond is brilliant, a very good way to check your system.

Andrographis is the one herb in the protocol that can cause side effects that can be uncomfortable. I would suggest starting with Japanese knotweed, then cat�s claw, then eleutherococcus, and only then adding in the andrographis.

The knotweed will act to reduce the inflammation in the nervous system and that should help your nervous system deal with the andrographis. Still, it may be that you are one of the few for whom the herb does not work well, your approach will let you know this as you go on. The other herbs in the protocol will act to reduce the lyme symptoms considerably or even totally, even without the andrographis.

I tested positive for Mycoplasma and Bartonella too. I used Buhner herbs for those and we had success with a tincture from Beyond Balance called Bar-1 — you do need to be working with a practitioner to get Bar-1 so stick with the Buhner herbs if you don’t have a practitioner trained in Beyond Balance.

Probiotics are a must.
Find a good one… or several.

If food is undigested, take Betaine HCL with meals

If you can’t sleep, take melatonin or Chinese Skullcap before bed.

Gentle exercise is needed. The goal is to get to
an hour of non-aerobic exercise every other day.
You may need the entire next day to rest.
Start with 5 minutes if you have to and build up
your stamina. Be gentle and celebrate the gains.
Yoga, Pilates, weight lifting are all good. I got a Total Gym

Put xylitol in lemon water all day long to tolerance.
Start with 1/2 tsp and build up tolerance. Xylitol is
and antifungal, anti bacterial, anti viral so if you have
infections, it may give you the runs… back off and then
start again. Better out than in.
