Low Dose Chelation: Hope for us Low-Dosers

BH-main-web-image1I get the coolest emails. There’s always something funky in my inbox. Someone just read my book all excited and raring to go, someone needing help finding the balls to start chelation, someone in need of some encouragement, someone with a breakthrough, someone in need of a hand to know where to even start. I get all kinds and it’s awesome. I also get emails that help and inspire me.

I‘ve just re-started chelation myself after a long lay-off and there I was wondering if anyone ever raises their dose when they seem stuck on uber-low levels like me. 79 rounds and still in 4 or 5 mgs ALA. Anything higher hits me like a ton of bricks and wipes me out. I often wonder how long chelation is gonna take me? Will I ever be able to raise my dose?

“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.

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.
