    Thanks and I hear you on that first response about it being hell. Will walk thorugh that if needed to get better. Do you have a post somewhere that details your starting point, precipitating cause(s) and other things you may have tried?

    If that person on the QUicksilver protocol is willing to chat with me please ask them to contact me on the PM. Thanks again!

    I sent him a message. He's on the East coast so it will probably be tomorrow. He was last on the forum at noon today.

    Re methylation: Rich said on repeated occasions that if one has problems with the methylation supplements -- serious problems where they couldn't tolerate hardly any amounts of the supps without severe reactions -- that they should probably deal with things like heavy metals, or mold, etc., first.

    I think you'll find over on the FDC group that there's little debate re the safest way to chelate...but yes, there is considerable debate online. :)

    Sorry to hear that Mimi. I think they'd recommend the hair test to see what other metals/toxic compounds might be involved. And of course some need to start with tiny doses, while others can tolerate much higher doses, like with so many other protocols. I had no problem with 12.5 mg of ALA, but others were starting with 2mgs, sometime less.

    Hi Sparrowhawk,

    Quicksilver Scientific does their own testing - a combination of 3 tests that they say yield far more information.

    Hi Dannybex,

    I found s-acetyl glutathione to be quite helpful during mercury detox, but first I worked on getting my gut inflammation under control. You might check out Chris Shade's youtube vidoes on mercury detox and glutathione. From what I have seen with my friends, if you have severe inflammation in the small intestine, you won't detox as easily, and you may not tolerate much glutathione due to inflammation backing up drainage from the liver.

    Hi Mimi,

    Sorry for the late reply...

    My gut's okay...just got a metametrix test back a few days ago...was kind of surprised. :)

    I'm curious about the ingredients in Quicksilver's products -- I can't seem to find any info about them -- just random bits here and there. Do you have a link or info regarding the specific ingredients in their products?

    Thanks in advance,

    Dan

    Hi Danny,

    Sorry for the late reply as well. I went on two road trips, one to LA and one to Oregon. It was great. I'm now packing up to move to Oregon which is quite clean and natural and WILD.

    Re: Quicksilver Scientific. If you do a search on YouTube for Chris Shade, the founder of the company, you will find some very informative lectures and PowerPoint slides on mercury detox. Dr. Shade is an expert on mercury detoxification and founded the company after he was severely sickened by improper removal of mercury fillings. I believe he did his graduate work in that area, or else it was post-grad, which is when he became ill
