Anyone ever try this method of mercury chelation?
After looking at some slides presenting this product, I think it's a fraud.
I'm curious about this too. For "fraud" he does seem to know a lot about mercury and there's at least one youtube of him presenting mercury in the body at a scientific conference. A.B. do you have anything in particular you find particularly suspicious about this approach? The test they provide is the only one I am aware of that tests hair, urine and blood mercury and will differentiate between types of mercury in your report.
Just trying to explore options, thanks.
I listened to Quiksilver's Dr Chris Shade being interviewed by Dr Mercola and found him to be very knowledgeable. I took pages of notes about the different types of mercury, the different chelators, what the test results mean, etc.
He has a PhD from U of Illinois in Mercury Speciation and that seems to be the big draw of Quiksilver, the differentiation angle.
Yes I tried Quicksilver IMD recently after my biological dentist (also a naturopath) recommended it. Works very well in removing mercury/heavy metals from the gut. On approx the 3rd day, I had lucid dreaming for the first time in forever (stayed in my dream eventhough I knew I was dreaming ... even while shifting between sleep phases!). When I woke up, I immediately noticed improved mental clarity, better energy, better focus/productivity, better Asperger symptoms ... I was so very happy!!! Unfortunately it only lasted 12 hours, after which my symptoms returned and has been this way since. I can only assume then that the parasites and other toxins took place of the heavy metals removed that are causing these symptoms. If someone has more insight into why this is, please share.
Also I noticed my gut feeling tighter the more I used it. I am guessing it is because of the parasites that were attached to the mercury being released??? Someone please confirm. I was luckily able to use Enterosgel to clear out the gut and it is feeling better now.
Gave some to my boyfriend as well. His cadmium/arsenic symptoms improved (less anger/depression and sense of smell returned), and got the same gut tightness problem also (same parasites as me?).
Oh, and I noticed our private parts smelled better after using this LOL. Guess it was the heavy metals in our gut causing the smell.
Does this product cross the blood-brain-barrier? Mercury trapped in the brain has a half life of 15-20 years and that is after all exposures have stopped. An effective chelator has to be able to bring mercury out.
Nope, I don't believe it does. It does slowly move mercury out of the body though, at least according to the biological dentist/naturopath if I heard correctly.
That I understand so far only ALA, NAC, and high dose Vit B crosses blood brain barrier .... but got to do it slow or you'll move mercury up into the brain (which has happened to me and you really don't want this). Correct me if I am wrong on this since I still haven't gotten it out of the brain yet.
Yeah, mercury doesn't play nice in the brain. Mercury was the fuse that lit my methylation bomb. I could go on and on when it comes to what mercury/methylation has done to me. It is my contention that people with CFS are even at higher risk because almost all of us will have CCSVI to one degree or another. Bear with me if I tell you something that you already know...
ME/CFS is a mitochondrial problem. It weakens the cells in the heart and blood regurgitates through the tricuspid valve and back up the jugulars. This may (or may not) be different from CCSVI that is found in 54% of those with MS. We may not need to have our veins opened, I'm thinking. We need to restore cellular health and the tricuspid valve might smarten-up. This is important because with blood pushing against the blood-brain-barrier, we end up with venous congestion, poorer oxygen perfusion, less ability to remove toxic by-products (as in more brain-fog) AND the pressure could make the BBB more permeable to mercury.
So not only is our (as in us under-methylators) detox system messed up to where we might start hoarding mercury but we put pressure on the BBB to get more into the brain....sheesh!
In terms of the chelators that you listed, only ALA has the double thiol group necessary to latch onto mercury. B vitamins can boost our own detox system, but still who has 15 years to half their brain load? NAC in rat studies increased brain loading of mercury as opposed to decreasing. But to be fair, our BBB is more sophisticated and we have to take care in how we apply data like this. I think with its single-thiol group that NAC by itself will not get the job done but am open-minded to consider anything that states otherwise.
