Good luck for your appointment tomorrow Sushi :Retro smile:
Look forward to hearing about it when you're able!
Hi Anne and others,
Well, I saw my doc yesterday and he did do another LED for mercury so I couldn't be on the computer for 25 hours. It is fascinating--I feel the effect within an hour! For the first few hours I felt headachey, yucky...then for the rest of the 25 hours I felt fine except for very little energy.
Again, when my doc tested me for chelators, DMSA was no longer working and I now tested well for zeolite. He did say that many brands of zeolite are contaminated and you have to choose carefully. I asked him more about why it was necessary to rotate chelators. If I understood his answer it is because mercury hides in the cells very well and different chelators use different biochemical pathways to get the stuff out of hiding. After a while, all the mercury "available" through that biochemical pathwasy has been "found," and you have to use another chelator with another biochemical pathways to find some more.
Later, you may well be able to go back and use a chelator you have used before, but testing is necessary to find the one that will be most efficacious at the moment. This does match my experience. When the chelator is working well, I feel great the next day. Then after a while, this effect tapers off.
And as far as chelating with amalgam fillings is not a good idea according to my doctor. Mercury will enter the saliva and move to places that could be dangerous. And, the teeth are close to the brain.
I'll mention this on the KPU thread too, but as I raise the levels of the KPU supplements (particularly zinc) it displaces and releases mercury as mercury has bonded with other molecules that would normally use zinc--if you had enough zinc available. When you give your body an ample supply of zinc, this mercury will be displaced. This makes the KPU protocol tricky to balance. He also suggested taking some apple cider vinegar with the zinc to reduce any nausea you may get.
Also, as some may remember, initially I tested positive for Lyme and XMRV. Since being treated, I have not tested positive
(3 months for Lyme, 2 months for XMRV).
That's a snapshot of my doc's appointment.
