    Is there anything I can take? stupidly scattered this stuff over a lawn today and it blew about into my face for a few minutes until I started coughing and realised what I'd done. Have taken some vitamin C and tri salts - do you know anything else that would help?

    Hi maryb I take N-A-C for these kind of toxic chemical reactions. I have actually taken up to 4000 mg/day, spread out in 1000 mg increments, when I've needed to. It's a precursor for glutathione and it works well for me.

    Not sure if you do would well with N-A-C, but that's what I got for you.

    Taking a hot bath or a sauna can also be helpful.

    Good luck to you. :hug:

    Do you think that something as simple as flushing out your sinuses would help?

    You could also massage these four points, "the four gates," which are used to help the liver detoxify: Liver 3 on each foot and Large Intestine 4 on each hand.

    It might be worth doing some research on whether you should go to hospital for treatment. I know that pesticide exposure can be treated if you catch it soon enough (I didn't).

    brenda, Dreambirdie

    Thank you both so much for replying - I suppose like we all think - the effort of going to hospital was too much to contemplate - I've ended up with a very sore throat, coughing a lot in the night - I am in the process of having the last of my amalgams out so will be going through a major detox soon, just hope I haven't given myself anther major setback.

    thanks - I am trying the detox points.

    Acute herbicide exposure causes high blood pressure and kidney damage as well as breathing problems and gastric upset. You need to get your bp checked. I really think you should get to a hospital to have tests. If your overall health deteriorates due to the exposure, then you have evidence for future benefit claims even if all you get done is some testing and don't want treatment which in the first instance is rehydration.

    thanks for your concern - and it does make sense but I don't have anyone here with me to take me to hospital and don't want to call 999.
    I've taken my BP - it was high initially (130/64 - for me) but now back down to my normal 110/6o.
    I've taken some charcoal - have some chorella but don't do well with that - maybe try some later.

    Is there a poison center phone number on the chemical packaging? If so, you could call it.

    I would put off the amalgam removal for now to see how you go and do some detoxing. Another dose of a toxin so soon after might just tip the balance. The fact that your body has reacted to the herbicide exposure shows I think that some damage has been done.
