Well, it seems I was not ready to re-start chelation. I have been feeling progressively worse since the last round finished three weeks ago. Seems the round has stressed me and my poor ol’ body and now I’m having some kind of episode/incident/crash.
I am off work sick this week. I suppose I could have dragged myself in, but it would have been horrid because I’m feeling pretty pikey. And also I need time to remain calm and I need to space to figure my $hit out.
Whats wrong? I’m freezing cold all the time, and I’m talking super chilled-to-the-bone cold. If I go outside a warm room I shiver constantly. I’m lacking in energy big time. Nauseas. I had a 2 day period of feeling depressed and down, but that’s gone now. I was scared, but I’m ok now. Now I’m just feeling a little sorry for myself. I’m definitely having a crisis. Chilling at home is minimising the crash, but chelation has caused a problem.
I was a bit worried about the old ticker, so I even went to see a regular doctor. He said my heart was fine, which is a BIG relief. Everything seemed fine to him. He is doing some thyroid blood tests. Not sure it was worth seeing a regular doc, but best to check in case it’s anything … well, anything mega serious is showing. Main thing is the heart is ok.
Ten days ago I also went to see a muscle tester lady. She said my liver was stressed, along with my adrenals and thyroid glands. Ummm, I knew about the liver and have been working on that for months now, but the adrenal and thyroid thang is a new re-discovery.
So I started taking my 3-a-day temperatures to see what’s going on.
Ummmmmm. Not a good graph. For those un-accustomed to temp graphs; my average temps should all be around the top of the first coloured band where is says 37.0 degs. As u can see it’s all rather low and unstable. The up and down jaggedness means my adrenals are shot. The low temps mean my thyroid is shot. Yes, F*$k.
Back here again.
Oh well, at least I am experienced and know what to do!
Obviously chelation has stressed me. Obviously I need adrenal and thyroid support in order to chelate. And obviously chelation will have to take a back seat until that’s in place.
Anyway, today I went back to the muscle tester lady again. She tested all my supplements, specifically the adrenal support (ACE) that reacted badly with my heart last year…and good news; it tested fine. I restart the adrenal support with ACE in the morning!!
She also confirmed my liver is still troubled and gave some different liver herbs. And she also confirmed the current crisis is probably, looks most likely, to be an Adrenal Crash.
Great. Just what I need. Ho hum.
But, at least I didn’t do two rounds, or three rounds, or increase my chelator dose, or do a liver flush or anything drastic like that. I do in fact feel better just knowing what the problem is. Knowing it’s adrenals, knowing which adrenal support to take…all makes the problems manageable. I now have a new plan and priority: Adrenal support first using ACE and B-complex. When the Adrenals are supported, as shown by a level set of temperatures, then it will be time to embark on thyroid support. But first things first: Adrenal support here we come. From past experience it will probably take two to three months for the adrenal glands to kick back on-line. Maybe it could be quicker? Please! LOL
And, I gotta ask myself the serious and very personal question of: why and how? Why and how did I let myself get like this? Again! Especially a man of my experience! Well if I’m honest with myself it’s because of the heart thing I had last year. I let myself believe I just (ha!) had a heart issue. I let myself believe what my doc’s told me. That it was just a heart problem.
It was a heart issue, but it was also an adrenal and thyroid issue too. I was addressing them, with the usual supplements, but the heart problem was a BIGGER problem and that needed sorting first. In fact the adrenal and thyroid support made the heart worse, so I had to stop them all. I have some tricky months ahead of me as I figure out what supplements I can take that don’t mess with the heart. Hmmmmm. Not something I’m looking forward to.
Anyway, that’s where I’m at right now. Problems, problems, and they all need sorting out. It is amazing just how much crap I have to put up with and go through! Bloody mercury. I hope in my next life I do something calmer!
As usual when things hit fans I get myself some TLC: I had a massage last night. That was nice. Warmed me up. I have a healing session with my lovely healing lady this evening too. She is awesome and I look forward to her hands-on energy. Money well spent seeing her.
That’s all, sorry it’s bad news, sorry I’m having a moan, but life’s a bitch sometimes.
Such is life for the mercury toxic.
