Film Review: Evidence of Harm

Evidence_of_Harm_1080‘Evidence of Harm’ is a film about amalgam fillings and the appalling damage the mercury in those fillings causes people. It tells the story of the mercury poisoned people, the specialists fighting desperately to stop the use of amalgam and the dentists that do the drilling: some of the dentists believe amalgams are harmful, and some don’t. It delves deep into the politics of mercury with the American Dental Association (ADA) under the spotlight, and highlights some of the history from the early mercury days in the 1800’s to put things into perspective.

Research from the last few decades is reviewed and gives an up to date picture of where we are today in terms of the 50 percent mercury content of amalgam fillings. An astonishing number of people still receive amalgams even today in 2016. Many dentists, scientists, courts and official spokes-people are interviewed and give their views. It quickly becomes clear there is a mountain of evidence that supports what every normal, rational, unbiased person can understand: putting mercury in your mouth, close to your brain, is an incredibly dangerous thing to do, and yet somehow dentists across the world still continue to use amalgams to fill teeth.

Evidence_of_Harm_1080

Ohhh, exciting news. We have a new mercury film about to hit the airwaves. “Evidence of Harm”. About time too!

Not sure if you remember but there was a Kickstarter fund raising campaign back in 2012, raising money for a film to be called “You Put What In My Mouth?”. Well, they have finished it and changed the name to “Evidence of Harm”. It’s being released this month – October 2015. For any of you generous enough to fund the film with the Kickstarter thing, you name is in lights on their website: http://evidence-of-harm.com/category/thank-you-2/

Living the dream: It’s the good life for me.

old life new lifeI have news, exciting news. I’ll get to my health a bit later, everything’s cool, but the big news is: I have jacked the city job! And retired to the country! It’s the good life for me! Hooray! It’s been a while since I updated my blog, but I’ve been busy. Busy in the office and busy plotting, planning and scheming my exit from my city life. Wowza, that took balls! I couldn’t really say anything here on the blog, just in case someone from my office got word. I’m only 46 years old and it was a top secret, mission impossible style exit, carefully planned for a smooth retreat, but alas there where explosions at the end. But the deed is done, I have resigned from my city job of 27 years, received my last pay check, collected my P45, and handed back my mobile phone. Great big life changing decisions have been made and I am gone. Thank you so much. It was fun. Great fun too, but now I get my life back. Back for myself. No longer will I prostrate myself at the feet of every Tom, Dick and Harry! No longer will I arise at 445am and stagger home at 8pm. Thank you city and goodbye.

Wowza! Colours Go Crazy!

And we have lift off! I lied. I don’t have a little colour returning, I have a bucket load of colours back with a vengeance. Amazing! We live in a super funky world. So many cool things happen to me! I love this $hit!

Yesterday, six days after my 76th chelation round ended, I started getting some colours back. I am terribly colour blind. I mean, proper colour blind. I am red/green, green/brown, and yellow/blue colour blind. When I chelate colours often reappear like magic, and I can see them again. Usually just one or two colours at a time. I guess it unblocks some pathways, somewhere, somehow. God know what happens. When they come back, they wow me, they pummel me, they sparkle me, they shake me, and wake me and jazz up my life like a great big kaleidoscope of fun! It’s all rather exciting and makes me feel like a kid again. Nothing wrong with that!

Master Cleanse: The results are in! Mega success!

who-is-awesomeAfter twenty-five impressive days fasting on the Master Cleanse I will now set out all the benefits it has given me. And I must say I have some pretty cool gains here. Seriously great. Not sorted out everything, but significant steps have been taken up my ladder to better health.

After over two years being off-games with no exercise possible due to excessive fatigue, I have at last been able to re-start my beloved yoga this week. Hooray! That’s a BIG deal for me. One that I am gloriously happy about. I consider re-starting my workouts to be the very tippy-top of my wish-list. The Master Cleanse did this. Powerful stuff! My fatigue has gone!

At the start of the fast I listed out all the things I had wrong with me. Now I will go back to that list and review each problem and set out what’s changed.

1) Fatigue is the main problem. It is chronic and it will not go away: – Ummm, well, yes, I don’t want to tempt fate but the fatigue seems to have gone. Brilliant eh! I feel pretty normal now and have a normal amount of energy too. I require less sleep as well. I only need six and a half to seven hours sleep now. All of this year I have needed, and I mean NEEDED, eight hours.

2) I have very mild depression: – Gone! Boom!

3) Lab tests showed high reverse T3 (RT3) problem: – No idea what labs show now, but I took my temperatures last week and they were all bang on perfect. Happy dayz!

4) Lab tests showed I have low DHEA: – Untested.

4) I have had problems taking B-vits and B12 : Untested.

5) Chelation made the fatigue worse. Why? No idea : – Still no idea, although I blame Vit D levels.

6) Adrenals still slightly out: – Temps all level and perfect, so assume this problem is no more!

7) I have burning feet. Sole of my left foot gets horribly hot, burning hot: This disappeared completely during all 25 days of the fast. But, it seems to be coming back a little now, 10 days after I ended the fast. Not sure why. Not even sure what it is. But still, it is about 80-90 pct better that it was pre-fast. Rash on foot is 90pct better too. Dry skin on left heal is 90pct better too.

8) Blood sugar problem with some hypoglycemia an issue: It wasn’t that bad, but it was an issue and now is much less bad: about 70pct better than it was.

9) Libido low-ish: Unchanged.

10) When I get the fatigue kicking in, I get this weird grippy hand thing: Gone.

11) I cannot do any exercise. No gym. No yoga: Ha!!! Sorted! Yoga has restarted!!!! Happy dayz!!! I did three sessions last week and have done 6 practices in the last 7 days this week. I am getting up at 5am, having a one hours yoga session, then going to work. I need less sleep. This is just like the good old days and shows I have regained my mojo!!! Mega-deluxe-fantastico-coolio!

12) I have good days and bad days: Days are pretty ok at the moment. Although my shoulders hurt at little. More of that later.

13) Booze does not agree: Not tried any booze yet; untested.

14) No wheat: Not tried any yet; untested.

15) I eat a lot at each meal: I still eat a lot. I lost 6kg during the fast. Now I am rebuilding and I am eating a lot of food again. I regained 2kg in the first 7 days.

16) I have a furry tongue in the mornings upon waking: I still have the furry tongue, but it is about 80pct better than during the fast. And about 40pct better the pre-fast. That means I need to do more fasting.

17) I have just discovered I have a vitamin D deficiency: Got tested again and Vit D levels now fine. High even. That comes from the sunbathing I did on holidays, not the fasting.

18) Most nights I get up to pee once: Still getting up some night’s, but not every night, so that is an improvement.

19) I have mild carpel tunnel syndrome on my left wrist: It is better than it was, but still there. I would say 35pct better since the fast. Yoga is tricky but do-able. I must be very careful still: no sun salutations yet.

20) Ears are fine, but for some odd reason I cannot listen to loud headphone music: untested.

21) Sinus’s blocked half the time: Sorted. All clear now. This was one of the things that was greatly impeding my yoga. Clear sinus’s enable good yoga. Good news eh!

So there we have it. Pretty damn funky and cool eh! Lots of problems sorted out, or at least better. That list was the list of everything that was wrong too.

I have to say that fast was a MASSIVE success. To regain my energy, to restart my yoga, to have level temperatures at the right level, to help and resolve some of the hassles: that’s pretty damn wonderful and makes doing the fast gigantically rewarding: success always is awesome and I feel awesome too!

But it’s not over yet. Unfortunately I have to admit the fast was finished too soon. 25 days was not enough – for me and my body. Wild eh!! At the end of the fast it got pain right between my shoulder blades. This is a typical liver signal. It was quite a strong sharp pain too that has lingered all week. I didn’t have this before. My tongue also remained furry all during the fast, and afterwards too, which indicates I still have crap in me that needs exiting.

So yeah, it will need repeating. But the Master Cleanse is not a hardship. The fast was very easy to actually do and with all the benefits I have gained I am greatly looking forward to my next MC. I have pencilled in January 2014 for the next attempt.

In the meantime, because my shoulders hurt so much, I will be addressing my liver and gallbladder next.  I have just done a liver flush this past weekend. You know those things with grapefruit juice, olive oil, and Epsom salts. Yeah, the thing that Cutler is against. Yes, those horrid hardcore liver flushes. I have not done one since 2007.

This time the flush went off like clockwork with no problems or hassles. Last time I did one of these beasts it took two weeks to recover from!! Hardcore indeed! Re-reading Andreas Moritz’s book, even he admits its like major surgery of the liver – but with no knives. This time I was fine the evening afterwards. All pretty straight forward for a change. Had a colonic monday night too. Never really like all those tubes and whatnot, but essential to do when liver flushing to get everything cleaned up afterwards.

I got zero gallstones out. Odd eh! Not sure what that means. I did get a load of chaff, and gunky green bile, just no stones. And I did feel better after too: warmer.

Now that’s finished I have started some Humaworm Liver herbs. These are two weeks on, two weeks off herbs. So I will do a couple of rounds, see what happens. Maybe do another flush too, depending on how I feel.

But, as you can see, things are looking up for me. Proper up too. To have banished the fatigue is a major event in my healing. I have the Master cleanse to thank for that, but I must also point out sorting out the Vit D problem was also very important too. Could not have got this better without the Vit D.

How did I sort out the Vit D decifency? I went on holiday and sun bathed a lot. Once I understood I was deficient, I went out of my why to get loads of sun. Once I had a base tan, I didn’t use suntan lotion anymore. I did more sunbathing when I got back home on the weekends. Re-tested Vit D and it came in way above what it was and right into the GREAT zone. Just two months later.

Phew! I am a busy boy. So many things done recently. Just in this one blog entry I have discussed fasting, liver flushing, liver herbs, Vit D….so many things to do!

AND… I urge all my friendly readers to do $hit. Do stuff. Do things. Experiment. Try new ideas. Because eventually you will hit pay-dirt and something, somewhere will hit the spot like a champion, hero and superstar! Then you too can get up at 5am and stand on your head! LOL.

That’s all folks!
Sunshine

PS. I have also made additional notes about the Master Cleanse. It will make this post too long and boring, so I will save that for another day. The title of that blog entry is gonna be: Success! Or  maybe Happy Dayz! Or Major Progress Has Been Made! Or Observations Post-Master Cleanse. Or Good Health Has Returned? Undecided yet what the title will but, but you get the gist! Let the good times roll!

Dear Dr Peatfield – Temperature!

16430If you are taking your temperature to monitor your adrenal and thyroid situation – then I guess you should take five minutes out of your life and read this blog entry. Might save you some hassle. I have had a very surprising situation arise. I guess many people make the mistake I just made, so I guess it’s kinda important. So if you take your temps…you should read this one.

I am having discussions with Dr Peatfield about my adrenal and thyroid status. He is a major metabolic health guru over here in England. Written a really helpful book and treated many people successfully. He is kinda like the Culter of the thyroid world.

My correspondence with him is via the post. I have to write him letters. He is major league old skool and does not handle emails too well: so letter it is! He is very booked up so appointments are months apart.

Dear Dr Peatfield

Interesting things and odd discoveries have been going on over here. Let me explain:

As we discussed, and for the third time this year, I tried to support my adrenal glands, again with adrenal cortex. Now that the heart palpitations have stopped due to me giving up wheat, I tried again with Thorne brand Adrenal Cortex 50mg dose.

After 5 days on a very small quantity of adrenal cortex, just 25mg(1/2 a cap), a whole heap of nasty symptoms bombarded me and I had to stop supplementation on day seven. Toughing it out was not an option. Another adrenal experiment that failed.

Next I let side-effects dissipate and decided to get some lab tests done. You said I should get T3 and T4 tested, but I got a few other ones as well, as well my 4 x a day saliva cortisol saliva test. They are attached to this letter.

I read up and saw I need to go ‘no adrenal supplement’ on the adrenal stuff for two weeks in preparation for the tests, so I had two weeks off all adrenal support…not that I could take any anyways. I was also on zero thyroid support. Last time I tried I got a load of horrid symptoms.

Two weeks after the previous adrenal experiment, I got the tests done and awaited their results.

Next: You suggested switching adrenal brands on my next experiment, so I got some Nutri-Med Adrenal concentrate 100mg caps and tried that to see if a different brand/bigger quantity made a difference. This is the forth adrenal support attempt this year. I started and had a few bad days that week: rough but manageable. But I also had some good days too. Proper good days. Days that said “this is working”. Good news.

After 7 days I raised the dose to 2 caps a day: 200mg adrenal. Again some good days, but also a few bad days, but overall an improvement. Fatigue is probably 15pct less. I am not freezing cold anymore, but it is the hottest summer for 25 years, so not sure what to make of that yet. Libido came back as well…which is good, but the biggest problem is the fatigue and that is still very much there. I would call it chronic fatigue. I am tired all the time and only have two gears. First and second. Third, fourth and fifth are nowhere even close. I am still able to work in my office job without any problems. I cannot do any exercise whatsoever. I cannot drink any booze without feeling terrible the next day. Even a sip of beer makes for a bad next day.

Next: Thyroid Lab results came back – as attached this letter:

My comments:

1) I seem to have enough FT3 and FT4. Odd. Why am I so tired? Why am I so cold? Both in-range with high FT3. I seem to have enough hormones in me.

2) My Reverse T3 (RT3) is high (but in–range). Does this mean I have an RT3 problem? (People on-line thought I did have this problem.)

3) My Antibodies are in range…does that mean I don’t have an autoimmune condition like hashi’s?

(At this point I would like to remind you that I have had problems adding Multi B’s and B12 supplements. They have given weird side-effects and I have had to stop them. Is this a RT3 problem signal?)

Next: 4 x a day Saliva Cortisol test.

Three out of four samples are in-range. But the second sample is high and out of range. Says in the lab report that I have: ‘Resistance Stage 3 – Maladaptation: Pre-exhaustion or pre-adrenal fatigue’.

I did some research, and found some help on-line. Those people read the tests and explained that the early morning result was in fact 50pct lower than it should be, and that the rest of the days samples were too high as my body tried to compensate for the lack of cortisol in the night/morning.

I will let you decide what you think about my test results, but to summarise:

1) adrenal test shows: Resistance Stage 3 – Maladaptation: Pre-exhaustion or pre-adrenal fatigue’.

2) thyroid tests show: RT3 problem??????????

3) FT3 and FT4 both seem to show plenty of hormones…(which seems odd to me).

All through these adrenal support experiments, and breaks between-experiments, I have been religiously taking my temperature. 3 per day. 3,6,9 hours after waking. Taking the average of the three. They have all been low and unstable: which I know means adrenals struggling and thyroid fatigued. This is basically how it has been since I started taking my temps 5-6 months ago. Temps mostly between 35.4 to 35.8 deg’s c. (Using electric thermometer).

But another ‘something’ has happened: in speaking with the people on-line, they gave me loads of pointers and suggestions. One of them was to make sure I was using the correct thermometer because most/some of those electric ones are rubbish. I thought they might be a little off, and it was only a guide, so I have been using the hassle-free, 20 second electric thermometer.

I have been using that electric one for 3 years and decide to test it against one that they recommended. A Geratherm mercury free thermometer. I already had one but didn’t use it because it is a real bitch to shake down. (I have really thrash it down to get it to zero and it hurts my arm). In-mouth for 10 minutes to get an accurate reading.

And I can’t believe my bloody eyes!
What the hell is this?
Holy $hit!
Excuse my bloody language but, but, but….$%£**&*!

Results with Geratherm thermometer:
Day 1: 36.8, 36.35, 37.2 = average 36.78 deg C
Day 2: 36.5, 36.4, 37.0   = average 36.63 deg C (in the air conditioned office)
Day 3: 36.5, 36.35, 37.3 = average 36.71 deg C (in the air conditioned office)
Day 4: 36.7, 36.9, 36.7   = average 36.76 deg C (slept badly. Felt rough in day)
Day 5: 36.7, 36.4, 37.0   = average 36.70 deg C (in the air conditioned office)

Oh boy…this is a massive surprise! Huge! Super large capital letter SURPRISE!

My temps are normal! I can’t believe it.
My temps are very close to each other, i.e they are stable!

For the last six months that I have been taking my temps daily with the electric thermometer: temps have been unstable and below 36.0 – every single day!

I know the current weather is very hot for England, 25-30 deg’s C everyday…but this is a massive difference from my electric thermometer. But I don’t feel any better in this heat, and my temps are normal, and it still feel pretty rough. I have been working on a different assumption all this year!

I have had some benefits from the adrenal support: libido, I seem less cold and I have a little more energy…but I don’t know what my correct temperatures where before I started adrenal support. They may have been as above??? Not sure? Any point in stopping adrenal support to see what the temps do?

Anyways…that’s where I am at. I am not going to increase the adrenal support anymore. I don’t seem to need it. Stay at 200mg Adrenal concentrate with Nutri-Med.

What does this all mean? I am gigantically surprised about the temps. I am still very tired and fatigued…and yet have normal and stable temps? Whats going on?

What do my lab results mean when my temps are normal? My temps may have been wrong all this time, but the lab tests still show things are broken. This has not all sunk in yet.

I understand the temps have been wrong. Now it looks like my temps are stable and at the right level. Yet I still feel very fatigued. And my lab tests came in showing some things are broken:

1) 4 x a day Saliva adrenal test shows: Resistance Stage 3 – Maladaptation: Pre-exhaustion or pre-adrenal fatigue’. No enough cortisol in the morning, too much in the day.

2) Thyroid tests show: FT3 and FT4 both seem to show plenty of hormones. But high RT3 – shows I have an RT3 problem.

I’m just trying to my head around this: My temps normal. My temps stable. Yet I still have no energy. Lab tests show adrenal issues and RT3 issues.

I don’t even know if I should be happy or sad?

I guess my question is, is this normal? I mean is it normal to have normal temps, stable temps…and yet still feel so greatly lacking in energy. Is this what having an RT3 problem is like?

Your advice, help and wisdom are greatly required here. Do you want me to come down and see you? Or should we stick to the letters? Phone call?

Best regards
Sunshine

So there we have it. What fun eh! Those thermometers that do actually work correctly cost peanuts too: less than £5, or USD7.07. Available @ all Amazon websites around the world. You want a Geratherm mercury free thermometer.

In other news I am currently on holiday camping in the Loire valley in France. Weather is amazing. Super hot: 37 deg’s yesterday and 27 deg’s today. Spending much time at the pool topping up the tan! I wish every day could be a holiday!!

That’s all folks!

Life Planning.

I got asked some interesting questions recently:

Life Planning – Question 1
Imagine you are financially secure, that you have enough money to take care of your needs, now and in the future. The question is…how would you live your life? What would you do with your money? Would you change anything? Let yourself go. Don’t gold back on your dreams. Describe a life that is complete, rich and full.

If I was financially secure I would:
I would retire from the city job immediately! Sell the house in Hertfordshire and move to the countryside in either Norfolk or Suffolk. Both our parents live in Essex and we need to be close-ish to them when we retire.

Find a good school for the kids and the find a house near-ish to the school. Max 25 mins away by car. The closer the better.

Buy a house with a large garden, in the countryside, but close to civilisation. Maybe on the outskirts of a small town or village. I mean not completely in the middle of nowhere. Need to close to a big town so we can meet and do things with friends.

House: No bigger than what we have now, and smaller is fine if the money dictates. Light and airy house. South facing garden. Need to have my own room for TV, reading, writing etc. House need to be in good repair because I am rubbish at DIY. Maybe have a granny annex for when the parents get old and frail?

Garden needs to be big-ish. Minimum 1 acre, but preferable 2-4 acres. Pond or small river going through the land. Preferable with views across the land. View of the sunset would be perfect. Small woodland would be lovely and a plot for an orchard with a wide variety of apple trees, plums, pears, nuts etc. Veggie plot for veggie patch.

Garden: can be already in place, or we can build/make the garden from scratch after getting garden designers in to plan everything out. That would be quite cool: to plan, build and make the garden from nothing. We did that in our current home and would be fun to do again: a cool and fun project. Watch the gardens grow and mature.

Ideally have a fast car: new Porsche would be ideal.
Build a kit car from scratch.
Have a garage big enough to build a kit car!
Be a member of a car club and go on tours.
Have the time to learn and play golf. Join a golf club and play a couple of times a week.
Have the time to learn how to sail. Buy a little boat. Nothing too flash, something I can sail on my own, together with being a member of a sailing club.
Have time to read books every day.
Have time to read the paper every day.
Have time to work out every day and at a time of my choice.
Have time to garden daily.
Meditate every morning.
Have cool friends and hang out with them.
Write another book. Fiction this time. I will need to go on some writing courses…that would be fun to meet other writers.

Maybe go back to school? Do some further education. Not sure what…but some interest will no doubt come along and I will “get involved”.
Maybe do some work? Be a director of a little company? I don’t rule it out…maybe that would be fun for a while.
Continue to learn to play the guitar.
Have a house in France so we can spend summers in a warmer climate.
Spend more time with the kids and family.
Chill out after my busy and hectic city/business lifestyle.
I have many interests, and I would do what I want to do, when I want to do it.

Life planning – question 2.

This time you visit your doctor who tells you that you have 5-10 years to live. The good part is that you won’t ever feel sick. The bad news is that you will have no notice of the moment of your death. What will you do in the time you have remaining to live?Will it change your life and how will you do it!

First make a plan to ensure the wife and kids will be financially secure when I’m gone.
Second is easy….I would do exactly the same as in question one!
I can’t think of anything that I do that’s different.
The answer to question one is my ideal life and that’s what I’d do if death loomed.
I have many interests, and I would do what I want to do, when I want to do it.
Chill out after my busy and hectic city/business lifestyle.

Life planning – Question 3

This time your doctor shocks you with the news that you only have one day left to live. Concentrate on the feelings you have as you confront your very real mortality. Ask yourself:
What dreams will be left unfulfilled?
What do I wish I had finished or had been?
What do I wish I had done?
What did I miss?

What dreams will be left unfulfilled? – $hit! I should have jacked city job earlier! Jacked the business lifestyle earlier. I wanted to have time to chill out and do what I wanted to do. Now all I have done with my life is worked my balls off…and then died. How disappointing!

What do I wish I had finished or had been? – Finished? Would have been nice to have a whole heap of time to myself, to my family. Like 1 or 5 or 10 or 20 years retirement without the stress of work…doing what I wanted to do. I am a broker, a middleman…I serve other people. There is more to life than being a broking. If I died now…I would miss out doing things I wanted to do when I had some real free time.

I get up at 6am and get home again at 730-8pm. My work is all-consuming. It would have been nice to do ‘all consuming things’ ….of my own choice. Some of my clients are utter bastards but I still have to speak with these disgusting people every day.

What do I wish I had been?- No. Everything was cool in my life. It was fun being a broker. I have no regrets on that front. Broking was my calling. I’m good at it too.

What do I wish I had done? – I don’t really have any regrets. I have had a good fun life. Work was good, worked with nice people, I was successful too. Pity my health was fucked…but that’s life and I had no choice in that. Nothing I could have done about that. I think I did pretty well considering just how badly ill I was.

What did I miss? —- If I died now…I would have missed retirement: missed having time to do what I wanted to do.

That’s all folks!

Limboland

LimbolandFor the third time this year I tried to support my adrenal glands, again with adrenal cortex. Now that the heart palpitations have stopped due to me giving up wheat, I thought I try again, just to be sure. And after 5 days on a very small quantity of adrenal cortex, just 25mg, a whole heap of nasty symptoms bombarded me and I had to stop supplementation on day seven. Another experiment that failed. So odd! I really need to figure this out! What does it all mean?

I can’t support my thyroid’s because my adrenals are shot.
I can’t support my adrenals because…not sure why the adrenal support is not working, but I’m down a cul-de-sac. I know my adrenals are fatigued, but I can’t figure out how to support them; bugger!

Maybe I need to change my dosing style? Maybe I need to dose higher to start with because the adrenal cortex is doing something odd, like suppressing something? Not sure…but that will be my next experiment! I will switch brands to Nutri Adrenal, and start at 100mg and see what happens. Dr Peatfield said that’s my next step, so that’s plan Batman.

If that does not work, I will speak with Dr P and see what he says. I have also found a website that says adrenal cortex can be multi-dosed, four times a day, starting at 4 x 80mg per day. I guess that will be my next try, if the previous try does not work out. http://www.nutri-meds.com/category_s/84.htm

If that doesn’t work, I guess it will be hydrocortisone (HC) for me. I hope not. Really really I hope not. I really want to avoid HC if I can. But something is wrong with my adrenals, I have tried many other things this last 18 months, and I’m 98pct sure it’s adrenals that’s holding me up, and that’s my focus. I must support my adrenals.

But before I do anything else it’s time to get some lab work done: I have ordered: 4 a day adrenal saliva stress profile, DHEA, Secretory IgA(SIgA), TSH, TT4, FT4, FT3, RT3, TPOAb, TgAb and Ferritin. Hopefully that will show me whats wrong. I have just read the Stop the Thyroid Madness book and that tells me how to read those results. I will also ask on a couple of forums, see if anyone can figure out how I can support my adrenals.

Just a quick thanks to “Thyroid UK” for setting things up with Genova Diagnostics so that people like me can get these blood tests done without a doctor’s prescription. I have to pay for them, but ce la vie. http://www.thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/testing/private_tests.html

For the saliva adrenal test I need to be off all adrenal supplements, which is fine because they all do weird $hit to me anyway, but I have two weeks in limboland where I am just treading water, waiting to get the tests done on Sunday. Will go for the next higher dosing adrenal support next week once the tests are done.

That’s all folks! Not much exciting going on really. Life continues otherwise unchanged.I work. I chill out. Gardens looking amazing!

The Mistakes We Make…

mistakesI’m the boss. When I get fresh-out-of-school trainees in my office, one of the first things I say to them is they are allowed to make as many mistakes as they like. Feel free to try loads of different things and not to be shy in getting anything wrong; it’s ok. Obviously try to avoid mistakes if they can, and certainly avoid any big ones, but it you do cock-up, ok then, it’s cool. It is fine to get things wrong. It’s part of life.

Why? Because when we get things wrong, we learn. We learn big time. We learn big lessons in life. Basically when we make mistakes; it’s one of the few times we are forced to sit up and, look, listen and learn.

“Oppps, better not do that again!”

The next thing I tell them is they are only allowed to the same mistake once! That I expect them to learn from their mistakes. If they cannot learn from their mistakes, if they keep on repeating the same old blunders again and again, then they must be retards and will quickly find life in the office difficult and most likely short. Such is life in the city!!

The same applies to our health. In our quest to be healthy we are forced to try heaps of different things to help our multiple problems. When we research an idea, it usually comes from someone who swears blind;

“This is the answer to everything. All your problems will vanish instantaneously, almost like magic. In fact, why haven’t you tried it yet? Are you are retard?”

So we sift through all the ideas, we try a few things.
Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose.
Sometimes it’s a small mistake and it’s no big deal.
Sometimes it’s a biggie.
Sometimes the mistakes we make hurt hard.

And what we usually do is learn from our errors. I am big on this concept. I expect the people who work for me to learn from their mistakes. And I expect myself to learn from my own mistakes too.

Well, I have to admit I screwed up again. A biggie too. A proper cock-up. One that hurt. Not wildly hard, but hard enough to make the last 12 months pretty difficult. A repeated mistake no less. What a sin! And one I should have known better. What a retard I am. I of all people should have known better!

In my defence, there are plenty of reasons for the repeated mistake. Pain, fear and dread being fairly high up on the list. But we don’t get many second chances in life and it’s important to be honest with oneself: I made a repeated mistake, again.

What did I do?

I trusted my doctors, again.

What a dick!

Me? Trusting a doctor? What was I thinking? I can hardly believe myself. But yeah, I trusted a bunch of doctors and they led me astray. Again. Offfffff!
I am humiliated. What a complete fucking dick!
Ok, here are the gory details, I will keep ‘em brief:

July 2011 Chelation round damages me. I am tired and drained of energy; life gets difficult all over again. Temps are all low and I am clearly adrenal and thyroid fatigued. I start adrenal and thyroid support.

Jan 2012: All hell breaks loose and I have a major heart issue. Heart is stuck on bonkers, beating like a runaway train. This is mega serious and regular doctors are called in urgently. My general practitioner, my heart doctor, and a new specialist thyroid doctor all tell me it is my self medication of thyroid support that has caused all this hassle.

Feb-Dec 2012: Lots of herbal cleanses and a change in diet in 2012 sort out the heart problem. All doctors I see (except Dr P) say I have no thyroid problem.

Feb 2013 I re-start chelation. This again damages me and I restart thyroid investigations. Again I see another doctor, and again he says no thyroid problem. But from my temps and symptoms I can clearly tell my adrenals and thyroid are busted.

May-June 2013 I still have to figure out a correct treatment plan, but it is now blindingly obvious I have an adrenal and a thyroid problem.

So there we have it. What a dick. I did have a heart problem. In that the docs were correct, but they missed the thyroid and adrenal signals and put me off the scent so that I did not treat myself for those problems. I have to admit I was scared of the thyroid and adrenal pills because of the way they interacted with the heart issue…but still, I have had thyroid issues all along. The doctors distracted me from what I should have known was true. I had a heart problem, but I ALSO had a thyroid problem and an adrenal problem too.

What I should have done is started thyroid support last year. That way I could have been feeling better now. But such is life. At least I figured it out now. Most people go through life never understanding or being able to help themselves like I can.

I don’t blame the doctors. I blame myself. I am the Boss. My health is my responsibly. I should not have delegated it to others. Yet another lesson for me. I should trust myself. Most of the doctors out there don’t know there arse from their elbow.

That’s all folks!

PS.I re-started adrenal support today. 25mg Adrenal cortex extract. Wish me luck!!

Dear Dr Peatfield…

Below is the letter I sent to Dr Peatfield today. Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield is a major guru & living legend over here in the UK. He specialises in Adrenal and Thyroid support. He is the author of “Your Thyroid and How to Keep it Healthy: The Great Thyroid Scandal and How to Survive it.” His book has been super-helpful these last 6 years. All my appointments and telephone conversations have been awesome. I base all my metabolic support on his work. He is one of the few Doctors I like and trust. Not many of them about!!!!

Looks like thyroids is my Big thing at the moment.

Dear Dr Peatfield

Hi there, we spoke on the phone about five weeks ago and you asked me to try some Nutri-thyroid at very low dose to see what might happen. I have now tried it and results are as detailed below. I will also add some history, comments and some other investigations in order to make things as clear as possible.

History: Trouble re-started in Feb 2013 after one small, low dose round of mercury chelation under the Cutler protocol. The chelation round was fine, but after five days I became super tired, massively lacking in energy and freezing cold all the time. Obvious thyroid, and possibly adrenal, issues. So I started a temperature graph to see what was happening.

IMG_0436You can see from my temp graph the temps are all low which indicates thyroid troubles. I would also have said ‘possible adrenal problems’ because the temps are not totally stable, but they are not that unstable and I am not totally methodical when it comes to always taking 3 temps a day and averaging them. You can see from the graph that I often only do one or two temps and that I know affects the ‘average daily temp’. But it is equally clear they are always low and a little up and down. As far as I can tell, I definitely have thyroid issues, and I might have adrenal issues.

The temp graph is as per Dr Rind: three temperature readings per day, which are averaged and plotted on the graph. The reason I do this is because every morning I awake to a very furry and gunky mouth and I believe that can affect the temp. I have taken my morning basal temp these last few days and you can see them on the graph. Interesting to see them above my daily average temp!!!

FYG I have been having episodes of mega-hot, mega-sweating during the night. It comes and goes but I occasionally awake at 3am drenched head to foot in sweat. I am not always aware of this and my wife told me the other day that i was mega sweaty one night, but I didn’t wake up and wasn’t aware, so I am not sure if this is every night or not. I don’t think it’s every night. Mornings when I awake I am always feeling ‘warm-and-toasty’. In the day time I generally feel ‘cold’ and always wear extra layers to keep warm.

Before we go on, I have made an important discovery. I have been getting horrible heart palpitations and high blood pressure (BP) issues. The high BP seemed to come and go at odd, different times of the day. It’s been stressing me out. It gets me down.

I generally eat bread in moderation only, trying to have just one meal a day with bread, but 2-3 weeks ago I had bread at breakfast and lunch and I felt TERRIBLE in the evening. So as an experiment I stopped the bread, and from that day onwards it’s made a world of difference: no more heart palpitations, no more raised blood pressure. I feel grounded and secure at last; everything feels stable and level. This is a big deal. Cool news and happy dayz! Note: I do not feel/get digestive issues with the bread. It feels like something deeper than just digestive troubles the bread causes. Note: I am fine with potatoes and fine with brown rice too, (even in large portions.)

I have included my notes that detail my temps, symptoms and comments from day to day. Also included are my blood pressure readings, which as you will see have all calmed hugely down since I stopped eating bread.

Eight weeks ago when I tried the Adrenal Cortex, 1 cap, 50mgs, it was my BP that went crazy, along with the crazy heart palpitations. I am not sure what would happen now, now that the removal of bread from my diet has calmed things down?

And another thing, I am currently reading ‘Stop the Thyroid Madness’ book and it talks about ‘adrenaline surges’ when stating adrenal support. I have never heard of Adrenaline Surges before, but they sound exactly what I had when I took the adrenal cortex recently…and the same as 15 months ago when the adrenal and thyroid support kicked off all the major trouble with my heart. I have included a highlighted page from the book which very well describes what happened to me. Is that what happened to me?

Note of my current major symptoms: greatly lacking in energy, cannot exercise at all, cold and I have burning hot feet. Without shoes the heat dissipates away, but with any shoes and walking around for 30-60 minutes; the heat builds up to unbearable levels. This has been like this for about 7-8 months. It comes and goes. Sometimes very mild, sometimes a real hassle. No idea what it means when my feet are boiling hot, and the rest of my body is cold to the bone. Comical! Is this just one of the joys of thyroid fatigue? Or another problem to figure out?

So…I started on half dose of Nutri thyroid, 70mgs, felt nothing for 4 days but on the fifth day things got better. My notes from the day read:

“Feeling good!!!!!!!!! 7pm BP 129/80 p50, Yes felling better. More stable. Still lacking in energy but defo better. Dreams have returned with a vengeance.”

As the days progressed things remained the same, i.e. a general feeling of a little progress at long last. Importantly no wildness, no raised blood pressure and no heart palpitations.

After nine days I have raise the dose again, to one capsule, 140mgs Nutri-Thyroid. Two days in and no real change. Temps slightly up, but nothing certain yet.

Since I have been on Nutri-Thyroid: very hungry all the time, gained 1-2 KG in much-needed weight. I am now having two bowel movements a day, (instead of one). I occasionally get very low levels of depression, just feeling a little down after all the troubles I have…but feel much more buoyant and happy now I’m on thyroid support. And libido seems to be making a come back! Nice! Always a good sign!!

Other signals and signals:

1) Adrenal test. I did the blood pressure lying down and then standing up thing to test the status of the adrenals: done 11am20th May 2013:
Lying down after 5 minutes: 134/69, pulse 49
Standing up: 146/57, pulse 59
Hooary! I think that means my adrenals are ok????
Please confirm that’s the case.

2) Torch pupil test for the adrenals/aldoeterone: Mildly positive for this test. My pupil did fluctuate back and forth after 1 minute, but I must say it was mild. I have done this test before and on previous occasions the flutter back and forth was strong. On this occasion it was however pretty weak and mild.

3) I started selenium supplementation a couple of months back: noticed no difference.

4) I have added a chart of my current symptoms from ‘Stop The Thyroid Madness’ book.

Note: my current supplements:
Milk Thistle (for liver)
Hawthorn berry (for heart)
Mukta vati (for blood pressure)
Zinc
Magnesium
Calcium
Chromium Vit C
Selenium
Vit D3
1 cap Nutri Thyroid.

Conclusions and summery of questions:
1) Do I have thyroid fatigue?
2) What are my adrenals doing?
3) What’s the burning feet thing?
4) Adrenaline surges? Is that what I had?
5) What to do about these things?
6) I have read that calcium can interfere with the thyroid glandulars. Should I take the calcium at a different time?
7) Supplements? Anything else? B’s?????
8) I swallow the Nutri-Thyroid pills. Should I take them sublingually?
9) How often do I raise the Nutri-Thyroid dose? Every 7-10 days?
10) I guess no upper limit like last time. Just keep gradually raise until temps rise?
11) Should I switch to Armour at some point? Or just go with the Nutri-thyroid for now and see what happens? The reason I ask this is because in my experience both Nutri-thyroid and Armour take a LONG time to gradually raise the dose: 4-9 months each. I need to chelate my mercury out and for that I need strong thyroid support. Last time Armour was required for chelation as the glandular was not strong enough.

That’s probably enough. After I have sent this letter to you I will call and arrange another telephone conversation with you.

Thanks for the help Dr P. You da man!

Best regards
Sunshine

Note: Nutri-thyroid is thyroid glandular. That mean it is crushed up cow thyroid glands. Yummy!

Good news!

Doctor Joke (1)I have good news! Great news! It’s a miracle. Thank you. Thank you o great doctor! What would I do without you guys?

I have been feelin’ rough recently. Something has gone wrong with my hormones. Adrenals and thyroids is buggered up somehow. Three weeks ago I went to see my GP, my General Practitioner, my regular NHS doc, my hero. I explained that I was freezing cold all the time, had heart palpitations and no energy. In his wisdom he decided I was worthy of some blood tests: Kidney, liver, thyroid, full blood count.

The tests come back last Thursday and I dashed in to see him:
“Hi!”
“…and how can I help you sir?”
“My tests? Did my tests come in?”
“Tests?
“Yes, my blood tests.”
“Oh yes, I remember, yes yes, your tests. I remember now, yes. I have good news.”
“…what do they show?”
“Everythings fine. You’re OK.”
“Oh goody”
“Yes, look here: Liver, all in range. That’s good news. Kidneys too. All in range. No blood in your urine either.”
“But what about my thyroid? I am still freezing cold all the time. What does that test show?”
“TSH, in-range. Free T4, in-range”
“Oh”
“Yes. You are fine.”
“Ok. I understand those tests are in-range, however my symptoms remain. I remain freezing cold. I remain tired. I cannot do any exercise. Heart feels odd. What do we do now? What do we test next? I’m still very much ill.”
“You are fine.”
“I’m still ill.”
“You are fine.”

***

…and I knew I’d come to the end of this avenue of exploration. I tested fine. There was nothing further to do or say. This doctor could not help me. I explained I was still ill – but, my tests showed I was all right, in his eyes, and nothing further I said or did would make any difference. I was ‘healthy’. In his eyes I was okay. Not sure how he did not hear my words when I told him I was not fine, but, but, well yeah, whatever…

I knew this would happen. I knew the tests would show up fine. It’s happened before and I must say I am pretty proud of myself. I didn’t get angry, or annoyed, or frustrated, or anything bad. Its’ happened before, I was just doing due diligence, going to the doc first, rather than last.

Fucking dick.

It still amazes me in this day and age. Amazes me that he sent me away after I told him I felt really bad. What a Dick with a capital D. Anyway, this time I didn’t let it get to me. C’est la vie. Now it’s time to get on with the job of finding out what’s really wrong. Back to plan A.

***

And on that note, I do actually have some proper good news. Last 3 days I have actually started to feel a bit better. Only thing I have added is the 200mcg of selenium so I put it down to that. I have not been miracle-cured, but I am less cold, I have more energy and temps are just starting to rise a little. Just. It’s early days, but I am very happy with this success of the selenium. I also need less sleep, which is an intriguing signal for me: feels like I am returning to a more even keel. I am craving some less-than-health-freak food and beer too. Always a good sign for me;-))!!!

I will increase the selenium dose in the next few days, see what that does. Seems the selenium is helping me convert my T4 to T3, if that what it’s doing.

The selenium advice came from the Muscle Tester Lady. She has got some things wrong, but this success makes up for those wrongs. Sometimes you need to persevere with these people, keep explaining things to them, keep forcing them to listen, forcing them to keep searching.

I consider the muscle testers advise about a million miles better that my traditional western allopathic doc. I consider myself lucky to have found a practitioner that knew to look at my deficiencies, knew to look for that needle in that haystack, to find that I was deficient in selenium. Amazing actually that I found someone, that found a problem. Almost a miracle compared to the crap advice from my regular doc.

I am also going to arrange an appointment with Dr Peatfield (adrenal and thyroid specialist) and get all the proper adrenal and thyroid tests does. See what a professional thinks of my situation. No doubt that appointment is months await….he is a busy and booked-up chap.

***

In other news: I finished the juice fast. Did 4.5 days in total. It was hard. Didn’t really agree with my blood sugar levels. Lost 3kg’s in those 4.5 days, but I know it will all go back on in the next week. My body is hungry and is eating like a horse, replenishing me, rebuilding me. Feels good to be so hungry.

In other other news: still freezing in olde Blighty! Holy cow, been snowing again today. Most unusual. I long for spring to arrive!!!!! I need to warm up!

I bought two tons of horse manure a couple of months ago. Yesterday I finished shovelling the $hit. Now every bed is covered. That’s my good deed for the winter. My garden should now grow like crazy. If it ever warms up that is!!!!!

That’s all folks!
Happy Easter everyone!

Juice Fasting: Day 4, and Poor conversion of Thyroxine to T3

I am investigating my adrenal and thyroids. The adrenal crash, I think that’s what it was, remains. I am cold, tired and lacking in energy. Everything is a bit of a struggle. My temps are still low which indicates thyroid fatigue. The temps are also unstable which means adrenals buggered up too.

As everyone knows, adrenals get treated first when it comes to adrenal and thyroid glands. I had my Adrenal Cortex Extract (ACE) muscle tested by a professional muscle tester ten days ago. Showed fine, showed I needed it. So I started low, just 50mg’s of ACE to support my adrenals. That’s a really low dosage, but within five days my blood pressure shot up to ‘bananas’ levels: 156/84. I awoke in the middle of the night to a hammering heartbeat that did not go away. Sleep was impossible. This is the same issue I had a year ago when I had the major heart crisis. It was horrid, but I immediately stopped the ACE and things calmed down within a couple of days. Thank goodness I only took 50mgs ACE. I then upped my Mutka Vata intake to the max, 4 caps a day and that helped calm my heart down. This is the stuff that’s GREAT for calming and healing the heart. I can highly recommend it for heart issues.

I then went back to the muscle tester lady and explained what had happened. She retested the ACE and my body still liked it, which is extremely odd as the racing heart was unpleasant to put it mildly.

So….
What does that mean?
It means muscle testing is a guide; and I need to constantly remember that.
It also means something is broken and I need to figure out what.

Muscle tester lady did more testing and said it looks like I am ‘high in thyroxine (T4)’, and ‘low in T3’. Which means I have a poor conversion of thyroxine to T3. T3 is what the body actually uses and it needs to be converted to T3. I then got out ‘Amalgam Illness’ by Andy Cutler and had a good read. He said this exact issue is common in mercury toxic people.

So now I need to investigate this fully. This is exactly the same as what happened last year and it’s a serious bloody problem. I can’t take adrenal supplements and thyroid supplements don’t help either, even though I show adrenal and thyroid fatigue. Both, likely, I think, flip me to hyper, ie to too many hormones. Seems I am low and high in adrenal and thyroid reserves, but I am unable to treat them in the ways that I know about: ACE for adrenals, thyroid glandular’s for the Thyroid glands. Odd. I don’t even know if this has an official name or something. If anyone knows….do email me.

And I need a real and serious diagnosis on this one. Muscle testing got it wrong this time, so I think I need to search out an adrenal and thyroid specialist, again. Dr Peatfield will be the first port of call, if he hasn’t retired yet. No doubt his next appointment available will be 6-8 weeks minimum. And I need to somehow get all my thyroid lab tests done too. Not sure how I’m gonna do that yet.

Anyway…specialists are needed. I need a diagnosis. Serious, if anyone knows what this is called, please let me know: ‘High in thyroxine (T4)’, and ‘Low in T3’: Poor conversion rate.

Muscle tester lady said I badly needed selenium and that this will help with the conversion. I took 200mcg yesterday…and everything was cool. Lets see what selenium does to me. With my hand on my heart, I can’t believe that simple selenium will solve this major problem…..but I will be overjoyed if it does!!! LOL. Certainly worth a shot.

I researched Selenium and it seems pretty cool stuff. Cutler is ok with it too, as long and it’s not taken at too higher doses. If anyone’s interested in selenium, these make very interesting reading:

juice_fastNext: I am currently on day four of a juice fast: veggies and some fruit. Powerful stuff juice fasting and something is detoxing in me…and I know about it! Not sure what part of me is detoxing, but I am a little itchy, jittery, have a furry mouth, have the $hits along with blood sugar issues that make me have lots of juices. All signals of major detox action. Water and herbal tea intake is very high to keep the hassle at bay. I will do one or two more days. I have a big lunch on Wednesday with work and I need to be back on the grub, or at least semi solids! And it’s bank holiday weekend coming up and my parents are over.

At this moment I am drinking fennel tea, which is supposed to suppress the appetite. It’s not really working!!! I have a list of the foods I’m gonna eat when I break my fast.

1) Mulligatawny soup: home-made Jaime Oliver style. Not sure why, but I crave it.

2) A raclette. Melted Swiss cheese over potatoes. You know I just love cheese!!

3) I fancy a decent curry too. I found a great one on Shaftesbury Avenue three weeks ago. Seriously one of the best (regular) curries I have ever had, and I’ve eaten a lot of curries!

4) Eat some of my homemade chocolate: Food of the gods that stuff!

5) Have a meal at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant. He makes great zingy food and that’s just what I need. There is one in St Alban’s which is close.

When I get the hunger pangs … I add to my list and imagine how much I’m gonna enjoy it!

Anyway, that’s about all for now, take care everyone.

When i die…

ripWent to my great uncle Charles’s funeral on Saturday.
What a sad day it was too.
Makes you think about death a little: funerals.
He died of cancer.
He fought cancer for 15 long years.
That’s a mighty battle.
He died aged 82.
He had a cool life.
He greatly influenced my life too.
I am what I am, in large part, because of him.

At the end he was told; “This is it. No coming back from this.”

I was told he replied, “Oh well, I gave it my best shot.”
Good man!

The day before he died his daughter came in to see him. He said to her:
“Mothers waiting.”
“No, Mum will be along shortly.”
And he said,
“No no, my mother is waiting for me. Just around the corner.”
Deep.
Spiritually deep that is.
When I die, I hope I see the light. That would be fun!

When I die I want to die peacefully. I don’t want to die being scared. Everyone dies. Everyone without exception dies. I will die. You will die too. That is inevitable. Normal. Nothing unnatural about dieing, so there should be no need to be scared.

I’m not talking about what happens after I die. Is there something after death? That’s irrelevant for this conversation. Today I’m just gonna talk about my state of mind when I die.

When I die I want to die peacefully, free of worry, and hassle, and guilt, and regret. But most of all I want to die without being scared.

I had some panic attacks in 2012. Horrible things. I had these wild feelings that I was doomed, that I was going to die imminently. It was horrific, absolutely terrifying. And I had no idea why I was so petrified, panicked and scared $hitless… but it was not fun at all: Fear.

When I die I want to die with a smile on my face. I would like my friends to come round and say goodbye too. Shed a tear or two, but come around and re-live some of the fun things we did. Hold my hand. Feel the energy.

If I am scared $hitless, meeting other people would not be possible.

Not sure how I am gonna go peacefully, but I will give it my best shot. I have 57 years to go until I’m 100 years old. Plenty of time to prepare.
And if I die earlier than that, well, I gave it my best shot.

Sorry for the morbid thoughts, but I’m just thinking aloud. Funerals. No death-wish here, more a life-wish.

My chelation round went fine. I will update you that soon enough.

That’s all folks!

A day in the life…

IMG_0147Sunday: I had a lie-in this morning. I got out of bed at eight am. I worked in the garden yesterday and I was knackered at day’s end. Exercise takes it out me.

First thing I drank my morning dose of Aloe Vera. It’s going very well and that stuff really is agreeing with me in a big way. Today I upped the dose to the top level I have been aiming at: 60ml. I started on 10ml per dose 4 weeks ago. As ever I am careful and taking things nice ‘n’ slow. I will hold at 60ml morning and evening now. That’s more than enough.

Next I drank my usual morning pint of water. I have done that daily for 6 years now. Then I made a pot of herbal tea and settled in my room, opened the curtains to let the sun stream in, and put on a new CD: DJ_Kicks, Maya Jane Coles. Quality house music. If you like a bit of house…I highly recommend it.

Once settled down on my dark brown leather sofa and got stuck into the book I’m reading at the moment: ‘Caliban’s War’ by James S.A.Corey. This is the second book in a trilogy. A ‘kickass space opera’ as they market this things. Very good too. Very kickass! I read for about an hour.

I made breakfast: bacon and eggs, sourdough bread with butter and honey. Everything is of course organic. So far my ideal Sunday morning.

I shower and shave and I’m ready to get in the garden at 11am. The sky is clear and the sun is shining. We had a frost last night but by the time I’m out it’s the warmest day of the year so far and all the sparkly frost has gone. In the sun it feels lovely and warm, although my iphone tells me it’s only 11 degs.

I have my work cut out. I have ordered in two tons of well rotted horse $hit. Now I have to spread it all around my garden. I have two big bags that got craned on to the front drive last week. I have to wheelbarrow the whole lot from the front garden to the back and then spread it all around the beds.

Why? Why spread horse $hit all around my lovely garden? Because that’s the secret to amazingly beautiful and bountiful gardens is: $hit! Serious too. Plants need lots of organic matter to thrive on. Well rotten horse $hit is like a turbo boost for all the plants; just my style: – )

It’s hard work shovelling all that crap; brings on a lovely sweat on this beautiful winters morning. Feels like spring. It’s coming soon too; all the bulbs are pushing their heads up. Because the work is hard, I alternate between shovelling and chopping last years dead plants back. The wife joins me chopping. The kids too have a quick hack, but quickly get sidetracked into hide-and-seek and football.

I’m outside in the sun, sweating, pottering around the garden for two wonderful hours. Nice to get out. I have missed the sunshine this winter. Seems to have been bleaker than usual this year.

For lunch my 4.5 year old son helps me make a quick fresh juice: one orange, half a lime, six carrots, four sticks of celery, an apple and half a cucumber. I was gonna have some bread too, but I juiced too much, about 1.5 pints, so it’s just juice at lunch today.

After juice: I am in charge of dinner tonight, so I quickly put everything together; slow cooked lamb stew with carrots, onions, home-grown garlic and one little turnip. Will have it with brown rice, so I set that to soak in water with a dash of apple cider vinegar. I got some asparagus from the market yesterday; looks lovely and will no doubt taste divine with butter melted on it.

After that I head back out into the sun. After more chopping we have filled the last compost bin. So now I have to empty another bin and spend the next hour or so shovelling compost on to the veggie beds.  Again hard work, but satisfying to be out, active and in the sun. In the pic above the beds that are dark are covered in $hit, and at the end you can see the veggie beds covered in compost.

IMG_0150At 4pm I am tired but happy, and it’s time for a snack.

We have amazing organic dark rye sourdough bread from the market, to be dipped in organic olive oil. Raw cheese called ‘Lancashire bomb’. Cashew nuts and pumpkin seeds: pre-soaked and rehydrated to neutralise the phytic acid. A pot of herbal tea and some of awesome homemade raw chocolate.

I made the chocolate last weekend after an old friend read my book and wanted some of it!! (Hi Femke) Raw cacao, raw maca power, cashew nuts (pre-soaked and whatnot), honey and all mixed up with coconut oil. Now this coconut oil is no ordinary coconut oil: no, this is personally hand delivered by my bro all the way from Goa beach in India. Thanks man!!

Tastes wonderful. I am eating some right now as I type this up. I limit myself to three chunks per sitting. At the moment it’s all gummed up in my teeth…yummmmmmmmy! Food of the gods this stuff.

Anyway, that’s about all for today. As you can see I have regained some strength. I could not shovel anything last year because I was too sick. The aloe vera is doing some seriously good things to me. I will write another separate post all about aloe vera when I’m further along down the line. It takes two to three months to get the full effects…but I can say the first month has been really cool. I feel much better.  And I’m regaining weight as my body comes back to like again. 4kg since the juice fast. A very good sign.

And it is now inevitable – I am definitely feeling much better these days and chelation will have to restart soon. I can’t put it off now I’m feeling better. That is inevitable, although I’m a tad apprehensive; I don’t like side-effects. But, if I am to get proper and permanently better, chelation is inevitable.

Oh yeah, I also finished the second round of Humaworm Liver herbs last week. I am still struggling with a congested gallbladder. Muscle testing confirms this. The herbs are good and I feel better on them than off them. I will start the third round of HW liver herbs a week on Monday.

That’s all folks!

Live The Dream

IMG_01411988: Twenty five years ago I was 18 years old. Picture this: I wore white plimsolls, blue drainpipe jeans, a white T-shirt, a purple waist coat and a denim jacket littered with badges of daggers, skulls and the names of my favourite rock stars: AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Metallica. I had blond hair to my shoulders and an earring. I had a dream: I wanted to be a rock star. Heavy metal was my thang. I loved it. I lived it. I had all the albums. And I looked great!

I decided I was gonna play lead guitar. Yeah, cool baby! But in order to do that I need to 1) purchase a guitar and 2) learn to play said guitar.

I had no money, so I got a job down the local sports club behind the bar pulling pints. I also got a job as a porter at the local department store: BHS. Cash is king!

I worked hard and saved every penny until finally I had enough. Hooray! I rushed into the guitar shop and with massive excitement bought the above pictured Axe! Perfect! The same shape as the lead singer of AC/DC, Angus Young. I also got myself a 100watt amp to power my way into fame with mega decibels of sound.

My parents were overjoyed. Not.

However my dream did not come to pass. I failed miserably to learn how to actually play the damn thing. Sure I could make mega-loud-thrashing-sounds that echoed around the entire neighbourhood. I had great fun doing that, but I never bothered to have any lessons, not even one to get me going.
I was not a natural.
The self teach books failed me.
I was rubbish.

After a while reality kicked in, I realised I was not gonna be a rock star, and I got a job in the city and stored my guitar in the loft.

****************

Six years ago life as I know it collapsed. Mercury poisoning kicked me firmly in the balls, my health crumbled and my future looked bleak. In amongst all my troubles and battles to reclaim my life I longed quit the city job, retire and go live somewhere calm and hassle free.

Sadly a massive lack of funds stopped this dream. Oh yes, we all gotta earn our bread somehow and no way did I, nor do I, have enough to retire on in my thirty’s or forty’s. But with my health so poor, with so much time dedicated to looking after myself, to educating myself, I had little time to do the fun things in life. Most of them I was not physically well enough to do anyway, other things I had not the time, nor the energy.

But one day I will retire from the city job, and one day I will do all the things I missed due to my ill health and lack of time and energy. So I started a list. I kept a list of all the cool and funky things I would do when I finally jacked the job, reclaimed my health and had the time and energy to pursue my dreams! Cool! And here they are, in no particular order:

Do an intensive yoga course somewhere hot: Crete? India?
Buy a boat and learn how to sail.
Study herbal medicine at college.
Study personal finance.
Learn to play golf.
Learn how to draw. (I was very good as a kid: straight A’s in art!)
Do Vipassanan 10 day meditation course.
Build my own kit car.
Go inter-railing around Europe, retracing the steps of when I was a teenager.
Learn to play my guitar.

Yes, the same guitar that has sat in my loft all these twenty five years.
After a while the list started to really annoy me. $hit, all the things I missed doing! All the things I couldn’t do. All the things deprived of me. All the things I wanted to do but could not. It made me sad, depressed and annoyed. It bothered and frustrated me.
Denied!

But one day the realisation dawned on me. I smacked my forehead and said “Doh!” as the lightening strike of wisdom struck me right between the eyes. I realised I didn’t have to wait 15-20 years to do these things. What a dick I was being! What a massive and total dick!

I didn’t have to wait.
I didn’t have to wait.
I didn’t have to wait.
I could, if I chose, do some of those things now!
I could live the dream if I really wanted to.

I was still busy with life. My job, my family and I wrote my book too which took bloody ages. Everything took up loads of time, but I realised I could fit in other things too, if I chose. I have a couple of hours free time most evenings!

That twang of insight, that change in how I thought; that happened about 2 years ago. First thing I did, I started up learning to play golf. I like golf. I just need the time to have lessons. I am not a natural! LOL. That was cool, but then I got a bit sick last year and golf is on hold because I am not physically capable to all that practice and all that 3-4 hours walking aboout. Ce pas possible!

****************

IMG_0011I think it would be really cool if my son Felix played the guitar. What a proud Dad that would make me! He’s only 4.5, but he’s keen, so I bought him a little ukulele for Christmas. He liked it, but he didn’t really grab it, grasp it, get it. I asked the wife:

“What can I do to get him excited about the guitar? It would be awesome if he chose the guitar as his instrument to learn and play at school. How can I help? What can I do?”

“That’s easy,” she said quick-as-a-flash, “get your guitar down and play it together.”

I love my wife. She is good at her job!

So that’s what I did. I got my lovely guitar down from the loft. She is still as good as new, even after 25 years up there. I dusted her down, tuned her up and fired her away and got my little chap involved too.

And it worked a treat. I still can’t play it and he is not a natural either! But he is interested and that’s key!

But another switch flicked in my brain after that. This was last Tuesday. I had been mucking about on the guitar for about an hour. My fingers were burning. I yearned to play the thing, even one song would be nice. Nursery rhymes to get my kid involved would be perfect. Suddenly I realised I could play the thing if I put my mind to it. I could get a few lessons. I could buy another self-teach book. I could if I tried, if I wanted, if I made the effort.

It was like a switch in my head being flicked.
Click!
I can live the dream if I so choose.

And so can you.
All those dreams you have.

You can live your dream if you choose. I know mercury makes life a misery but you can do some of your goals if you put your mind to it. Don’t let the mercury bugger everything up. I am sure you can find the time. It’s all a matter of flicking that switch in your head from ‘Pause’ to ‘Go.’

I promise you it feels absolutely wonderful to live the dream.

That’s all folks!

Ps. Typed this up at 37,000ft on a flight to Dubai!!

Pps. Started the 2nd round of the Liver herbs on Monday. Reduced to half dose because I am on a business trip. Need to minimise any hassles whilst travelling. (Edit now I’m back from Dubai and back on a full dose: Nothing exciting to report yet except I have a headache that will not shift no matter how much water I drink. The same headache as when I take too much Milk Thistle. Means my liver is detoxing. Anyway, I’ve only had one day of headache, and it’s not a blinder. I will reduce the herbs to half in the morning if i awake with the headache.)

Ppps. Since the four day juice fast finished I have regained the 2kg I lost, but also put on another 1kg. Hooray! That is good news. I’m skinny and extra weight is a good thang.

“The best thing about mercury poisoning is…”

Ok ladies and gentlemen in the house, we have a guest blogger tonight. My friend Tara Armstrong from her MercOver blog has very kindly agreed to write a few words of wisdom for us all. I suggested the title and just let Tara do the talking: “The best thing about mercury poisoning is…”

d06sgod1yll7gsddHello folks!  Danny has so kindly asked me to share a few fun words with all you mercury crazed readers out there, and I couldn’t be happier to do so!  Mercury makes one hot mess of our lives, in so many ways, but it’s important to take a minute every so often, to slow your chelation drive, to quiet the ruckus of all those symptom zappers, and to clear  your precious little brain-fogged mind for a much needed detour…  To give yourself a few minutes to take a nice, deep breath, to connect with those with whom we share this journey, and to find plentiful gratitude for the gas in our tanks, the precious fuel that’s pushing us forward, the stuff that’s really working in helping us to heal!

Allow me to share of few of the favorites I like to use to fill my tank…  First and foremost, Alpha Lipoic Acid gets shotgun!   ALA is #1, seated right by my side, the one I want and need with me for the long haul.  This road trip wouldn’t be, without it.  Plain and simple.  ALA’s my buddy gettin’ the mercury out, makin’ me feel good, the real gas for this trip.  You’ll need it for yours as well!

In the backseat, I have to put my other best friends, my adrenal and thyroid support.  Adrenal Cortex Extract has taken me to the best cities on this drive.  It’s stabilizing my moods and my temperatures, and it’s feeling just plain amazing to have unlocked this door of my healing.  Thyroid hormone, it’s dear companion, is next in necessity and sequence, and I think it a fare assumption few will be able to chelate without it (at least without miserable side effects along the way).  I’m almost to the town of adding it in, and with icicles in my bones, bloated weight gain, and ugly hair loss joining me on my chelation ride, my detour to pick up Mr. Thyroid couldn’t have afforded one more layover.  Not even for the night.

Zeolite, or Zetox, is my extra special buddy in the back.  Zetox works similarly to chelators, though maybe not crossing the blood brain barrier, but I love using it daily to mop up both redistribution and metals as they’re chelated outta my body.  Since letting this clown into my car, I’ve been able to tolerate higher doses of ALA, my head is clearer, and I have a tank full of fuel to keep me going (Zetox is also packed with B12)!

In my trunk I’ve got my roadside emergency kit, filled with the stuff I pull out when symptoms knock me down hard and fast.  Fix-a-Flat kind of stuff.  In it, I’ve got loads of Vitamin C, Epsom Salts (for drink and baths), apple cider vinegar (usually taken as a good, strong shot — almost instantly cures many of my headaches!), gallons and gallons of water (a tool highly underrated and underused — when at a loss — drink more of it!), and a ticket to the sauna (helps lessen my explosive chemical reactions, and helps with redistribution and further chelating too).  For my chemical sensitivity, I also throw in Niacinamide and Oregenol (oregano oil), which help big time pre and post exposure.

So there ya have it folks.  My best buddies, the clowns in my car, the gas in my tank, and my convenience store snacks of choice for one fine road trip to Healing.  Could I make the trip without them?  All but ALA, maybe.  Would it be as pleasant a ride?  Definitely not!

Happy detours and sincere healing to those of you I share this road with.  May Road Trip 2013 be the best one yet!

Namaste.
Tara Armstrong

Lovely Tara, thanks very much. Good work.
Cool eh! If anyone else feels the urge to unleash some words, or share their wisdom, then drop me a line.

That’s all folks! Take care.

Kick Arse! Resolutions, Essiac Herbs, Healing Crisis, Humaworm Liver Herbs.

I always start the year with New Year resolutions. They help me stay focused and remind me what the plan is. This year my 2013 resolution is to restart chelation after the heart problem stopped everything in its tracks at the beginning of last year. 2012 was a bit of a ‘mare: right back to the bad old days. Hopefully 2013 will be better. In fact I am sure it will be better as the worst is already over and I’m well and truly on the mend. Chelation is scheduled to restart in Feb-March time, once I have cleaned my liver, gallbladder and kidneys with herbs. I am working on them as we speak.

Essiac tea:
I have finished the Essiac tea herbs for now. I took these to help detox my liver. I managed 28 days in total, although I did have a four day break around day 20 because…because I had a healing crisis! Woo hoo! Always a good thing to have a healing crisis. Always a BIG detox and always the signal of change: and change is good!

Just before Christmas I came down with a serious dose of what I initially though of as The Man Flu. It was really hardcore, sofa-bound stuff. All the usual fluey symptoms but I also had major painful left shoulder too. Left shoulder pain is always a signal of liver issues. In this case a signal of the Essiac herb detoxing my liver so much I had a healing crisis.

How do I know it was a healing crisis and not just the flu? Well because it was just like other healing crisis’s I have had. It was short and sharp. I had a very bad three days, and then almost overnight it completely disappeared. Two days after the fever broke, all symptoms had vanished completely. That was entirely different to my wife’s dose of the flu that lasted almost a month. Hard and fast flu’s, that last three days, and then completely disappear is a sure sign that it’s a healing crisis.

Another healing crisis signal is that one of my symptoms went into overdrive and then totally disappeared. I had been getting up in the night to pee at least once per night all year. During the healing crisis I was sleeping like a complete village idiot and was up, shivering and pissing five or six times a night. After I recovered, my sleep was undisturbed by wanting to pee. Happy days! Thank you Essiac herbs. High five!

Essiac herbs are supposed to be taken for anything up to six months. However I was still on a low dose, 3 x 10ml per day, and they were making me itchy and depressed. Only a little, but they where dragging me down, making life miserable.

I did 28 days, I had a healing crisis, I got rid of some symptoms, I detoxed myself some…and enough is enough. 28 days was sufficient this time round and time to do something different. I didn’t muscle test this, I just instinctively knew these herbs had done their bit and it was time to move on. I don’t like being depressed anyway. Not good to be miserable over Christmas. I will however return to the Essiac herbs. If they give me hassles, it means they need repeating. They should be easier after I have detoxed myself in other ways anyways.

Humaworm Liver herbs:
The initial plan is I am going to try and tough these herbs out at as high a dose as possible. I have a weeks holiday now and I’m going to try and push it. These herbs are two weeks on/two weeks off and then repeat. These are the herbs I have been working towards for the past 8 months. I did try them earlier last year, but reactions and side-effects where horrible. I obviously needed to do other easier things before I tackled the liver.

kickass movie posters 4113x6000 wallpaper_www.wallpapermay.com_19So now, after I have bowel cleansed, parasite cleansed, candida cleansed, castor oil packed, detox bathed, and used the Essiac herbs, it is time to address the liver again. Hopefully I am ready now? These herbs are strong, no messing about, the real deal, MOFO herbs. They kick arse! They kick my arse! I usually have to adjust the dose down low in order to manage side-effects. (If these herbs are still to powerful for me, I will stop them and do kidney herbs instead. That’s plan B.)

Day 1 – half dose was fine to ease my way in.

Day 2 – full dose was intense but just about manageable. Tingly, jittery, hand grippy, nauseous, withdrawn and mentally slightly numb. Stick to the plan: tough it out! Muscle testing continues to show troubled liver/gallbladder and kidneys.

Day 3 – as per day 2, but i did have a four hour period of feeling great! Right back to my good old self again. Always nice to revisit those dayz again. A nice signal that i’m on the right track.

Day 4 is today – The situation remains intense with all the fun as per day 2 with the addition of some pretty hardcore heartburn. A decent 6.5 out of 10 on the richter scale of pain and hassle. All signs that the herbs are detoxing me. However on more a positive note: my nose and sinus’s have cleared!!! That’s GREAT news! I can smell again! They have been blocked for 18 months or so. That’s rock n roll cool! None of the other sets of herbs made any difference to them, but within a couple of days on these liver herbs..my sinus’s clear. Winning! That’s how I roll!

Also my BM’s have gone nice ‘n’ dark. Another clear signal that my liver and gallbladder are releasing enough bile to digest my food. This is a combination of the Essiac tea and these Humaworm liver herbs. It has been getting a little better, but these HW herbs seem to make made things a lot better. Hopefully it will last! My right forearm also no long hurts. According to Hulda Clark a hurting right forearm is a … yes, you guessed it: a liver signal!

It’s early days, only four days in, but positive so far. Hopefully the side-effects will be manageable for the full two weeks. Time will tell.

Happy New Year and I hope 2013 will be a healthy year for us all.

That’s all folks!

What crosses your line and goes into the wacky zone?

personal-boundariesWhat are your boundaries? What flips you over into la-la land? What is a step too far? Which things would you not do? What crosses your line and goes into territory that you are uncomfortable with? These are interesting questions and I’m gonna spend a few minutes discussing this concept:

What do I mean? Let’s get some examples going here: I mean taking herbs to kill parasites. Parasites in humans is pretty wacky and certainly not mainstream. Bowel cleansing? People do not like talking about bums! Taboo subject! And cleaning the liver with a liver flush? Speak to a regular doctor and they will laugh in your face.  Ditto cleaning the kidneys with herbs. Drinking apple cider vinegar to combat digestive troubles? Sounds wrong eh! Fasting? Is that for freaks?

What about muscle testing? That is very odd. Something you have to experience first hand in order to believe. Would you take Chinese medicine? Or do you think it’s not for you? Billions of people do! What about aromatherapy? Or massage? Or reflexology? Or that your diet is such a massive deal to your health? That cancer is curable using herbs? What about homeopathy?

And what about energy healing? This is well into the twilight zone. Reiki which uses universal energy to heal the body? Or hands-on-healing? Or channelling strange beings from different dimensions? Is praying to God for healing acceptable and normal to you? Is mediation within your boundaries? Would you ever go see a holy man that can heal with the touch of his hands?

When I first started learning about health and how to get better I didn’t know anything. I came into this with a clean and blank slate. My ignorance in all things health was total and made virtually everything wacky to me, but I was double-ill and I had to broaden my horizons or die. I guess that sounds melodramatic, but thinking about it: it’s true. I had to look outside the box and approach things differently because the things I had been doing had not worked and I was going down hill rapidly.

I was chatting with my cousin a couple of weeks ago and we discovered we had a lot of mutual interests in healing. We discussed some of the things we’d been doing to help ourselves. When we got on to some iffy subjects his reaction was:

“Whoa! No way! That crosses my line. That’s too freaky and I’m uncomfortable with that idea.”

“Do you know anything about Reiki? Anything about energy healing?”

“No, but that’s too freaky for me.”

And that got me thinking. Why do we think like that? Why do we automatically assume something is wrong or bad when we know nothing about it?

And then the next question I asked myself was: why do I think these things are OK? Of all the above examples, none of the cross my line into: “No, I would not do them.” Why do I accept them as, well acceptable?

Well the reason I accept all these funky and strange concepts is because I have read up and researched each topic. I have tried everything. I have tried all the herbs, all the protocols, all the energy healing: everything. I am a man of action. I try and leave no-stone-unturned in my quest for better health. I don’t let my ignorance hinder my quest to better health. I try not to have any pre-conceived ideas, and try to keep an open mind. If I hear of some new something, I check it out, read up and research it. Once I learn about something, the knowledge de-mystifies it, takes the ‘freak’ away and honestly just makes me keen an eager to test the new idea out. I love trying new things out: always so exciting!

Obviously at first things were freaky and weird, but now, six years down the line, after multiple actions to help myself; I don’t think any of them weird. I think they are all really cool and excellent ways to help myself be better. All wonderful ways to undo some of the harm the mercury has inflicted upon me.

I would say it’s all about education. It all comes down to what we are familiar with. What we have tried. And my experience is that all these funky ideas, they all help in their own weird and wonderful ways.

So if you hear of something new, something leftfield; don’t immediately disregard it. If you hear yourself saying “it’s not for me” for no apparent reason, try and remember it’s just your inbuilt caution hold you back. I’ve had great fun learning about and experiencing all the wonderful ways there are to heal.

I have been trying to think of something that crosses my line into freaks-ville and only a few things spring to mind:

Colloidal silver is one. It’s mental to take a heavy metal to try and cure oneself. I don’t care what people say: It’s totally and utterly crazy to willingly ingest heavy metals. Heavy metals kill life, including you!

Chemotherapy sends shivers down my spine. Imagine poisoning yourself to cure yourself? Doesn’t seem even remotely right. Hopefully I will never have to consider such an option.

Now I have learnt so much I guess I am twisted around the opposite way: Western medical practice freaks me out! LOL!

That’s all folks!

Thanks for all the cool book reviews.

Just a quick note to the people who have been giving my book ‘The Mercury Diaries’ such awesome reviews on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

THANK YOU!

Really a mega big giant thank you for taking the time and effort to put fingers to keyboards and give the book a review. I don’t know hardly any of you reviewers, so i thought I’d add a little blog entry just for you. Amazon really is the only place there is to market the book and every single review helps raise its profile and also raise the profile of mercury in our society.

I am obviously well chuffed, flattered and happy, but more important; when people come looking, come searching for clues and answers, hopefully they will see your cool reviews and buy the book, and then be better able to help themselves. That is a great thing to be involved with and you should be proud:

High five!

The book took such a long time to write, it was such a big project, five years work, I always wondered what people would think. You can’t tell from the inside. So yeah, pretty happy over here;-)

I have not had any bad review yet. I assume I will get some from soon enough bcoz the world is full of Muggles after all. In fact, I wonder if I will ever get included in Quackwatch? That’s actually a goal of mine. To be included in those Quackwatch lists. That will mean mega success! Means I really annoyed a lots pro-mercury-dumb-arses! LOL

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks a mill

Take care everyone

Mile high!

I am on a British Airways flight to Mumbai. My in-flight 3D map tells me I am currently flying over the Caspian Sea, some place called Baku. It’s a four day trip. Two days business. Two days travelling. I’m bored sitting here. So I thought I’d type a mile high blog entry.

I have been busy this week. Lots of things going on and no time for castor oil packs in the evenings. I have been feeling a little ropey again. Only a little, I still feel better overall, but some gains from the castor oil packs have reduced. A little bit of nausea has crept back. Why’s that?

I think it’s because the castor oil packs, or lack of I should say. When you detox using the castor oil packs they only detox the gallbladder a little bit. What I mean is; they only detox the bottom part of it. Or maybe say; only a little bit of crud comes out. It is still full of gunk and gallstones in the top part. After a few days the gunk settles and things get re-blocked up. Less gunked, but still gunked.

Yes, exactly: that’s why you have to keep doing them. It’s a weekly job. Three-in-three days weekly will keep detoxing the gallbladder.  Castor oil packs are a gentle detox and they require weekly commitment to your getting better. They are a civilised way to detox, but it is slow and takes time. That’s alright, I have plenty of time.

What else is going on?

I think I said it before, but my diet is reduced down to Defcon ‘strict’, rather than Defcon ‘ultra strict’. Back on a little fruit and carbs, except wheat.

Oh yes, Humaworm Candida is paused/stopped for my Mumbai trip. Not good to travel and try to do business in strange places doing herbs. I need to be in peak condition when travelling. I have done 28 days out of 30, so I think that will probably be it and I will stop here. I still have half the pills left because I was on a reduced dose for the first 3 weeks. I will freeze them to keep them fresh and save them for another time.

So, what’s next you ask?

Will it be a bowel cleanse? Or maybe a parasite cleanse? Or liver herbs to go with the castor oil packs? Or kidney cleanse? Or lungs? Or pro-biotics? Or chelation? Or a break? Or Reiki? Or a combination?
