Marie’s Story of Mercury Poisoning

In July of 2001, on the first night of my vacation to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the side of my tooth broke off. It was very rough against my tongue. I wanted to stay in Tennessee the whole week, so I asked a local dentist to put some kind of patch on my tooth to last until I returned to Virginia to see my regular dentist. Immediately after he patched the tooth, I started tasting metal in my mouth.

On August 8th, I saw my regular dentist, who said he did not know why I tasted metal. He drilled, and drilled, and drilled into the “silver” filling in order to resize the tooth for its new crown. I didn’t know that this “silver” filling contained 50% mercury, and I didn’t know that mercury vapors were released when a dentist drills into it. Neither did I know that when you breathe these vapors that the vapors can enter your brain. He did not use anything to protect me from the mercury vapors. (Your dentist probably doesn’t protect you either.) My dentist put on the temporary crown and I went home.

On August 13th, I felt like something moved inside my brain. It did not hurt. It just felt like something was up on the left side tumbling around and sort of tickling my head. It was weird, but I just put it out of my mind.

On August 16th, just before bedtime, I felt a little small circle at the top of my head begin to burn. My scalp was sore to the touch and it tingled all over. I had a slight headache.

On August 17th, I woke up to my whole brain feeling like it was on fire! My brain was jumping inside my skull and my head was throbbing. I started feeling electrical charges surge up and down my body from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. I went to my internal medicine doctor that day, but she had no idea why my brain was burning or why the lymph nodes were swollen in my neck.

I started doing research on the Internet about food additives such as MSG (monosodium glutamate) and aspartame. At first I started avoiding MSG, because I was becoming allergic to a lot of food I could normally eat, such as breads, milk, vinegar, mayonnaise, and spices. My head would throb when I ate the wrong food. When I ate vinegar, a big lump would come out on the side of my head that would burn and ache at the site of that lump. I would cry because of the pain. Sometimes the lump would be at the base of my neck near the brain stem. At other times it would be in a different location on my head. I finally learned to avoid the vinegar.

I was also getting chemically sensitive to perfumes, hairspray, car exhaust, gasoline fumes, smells from tires in the tire store and asphalt paving. It was horrible trying to go to the small church where the ventilation was not very good and everyone in the church wore a different “smell.”

My muscles started aching in my back. I had chronic fatigue. My collarbone hurt, and my nose was so sore I could not stand to put on a pair of glasses. I started getting floaters in front of my eyes and my eyelids were twitching. My ears started ringing. I had increased tingling in my hands and feet. I started keeping a journal of all my symptoms, what foods I ate, and what I was allergic to. I started writing down dates of my all my doctors’ appointments.

I saw two internal medicine doctors, two eye doctors, and one chiropractor who was going to test me for mercury toxicity but later dismissed me because he thought my case was too complicated for him. I saw a neurologist who said that “burning of the brain” was not a symptom of multiple sclerosis. I saw a doctor of osteopathy. A couple of these doctors wanted me to go to a psychiatrist when I mentioned that I had felt something “invade” my brain. I should never have used the word “invaded.”

On August 25th I stayed up all night. I could not sleep because of the taste of metal in my mouth, and I felt nauseated. I called my dentist early Sunday morning and told him I thought I had been mercury poisoned. I called the emergency room to see if they could do a mercury test on me. They asked why I wanted a mercury test, and I told them I thought I had been poisoned by mercury from my dental fillings. They told me that dental fillings could not poison me, and that they did not do testing for it.

A few days later, I let my dentist put the permanent crown on my tooth. I had not done a mercury test, did not really know anything about mercury, and didn’t know what else to do. By this time the metal taste was gone.

The dentist told me in his office that mercury was safe, and that we breathed more mercury in the air than what was in mercury fillings. He told me nothing about mercury vapor coming from those fillings when a dentist drills into it.

My health continued to go downhill. I was very dizzy, disoriented, and confused and things did not “look real” to me. I could hardly remember anything. I wandered around from room to room, not remembering why I was in the room. I lost my car in parking lots because I could not remember to look at the number of the row where I parked when I got out of my car. I could not remember to buy the things on my lists when I went into town. I would have to list every stop to make, and then I would forget to do what was on my list. I could not concentrate or get anything accomplished. I was just so tired. I felt like my whole body had just been shut down. Every afternoon by 2 PM I had to go to bed and lie on a heating pad for hours at a time.

I started having emotional problems and was very angry. One Sunday morning I woke my husband up at 1 AM and screamed at him for an hour. I begged him to help me figure out what to do. I had started reading a book by Dr. Hal Huggins called It’s All In Your Head, about the dangers of Amalgam mercury fillings. My husband would not read very much of the information I found, and was just ridiculing my symptoms. He said I was just reading Quacks. I was begging him to help me, because I was so confused I couldn’t figure out what I was supposed to do next. I had forgotten to have the mercury test run by another physician after the chiropractor had dismissed me. Actually, I didn’t know what kind of doctor could test me for mercury, and I had wasted a whole month without having it done. If my legs were broken I would have known what to do. But when the brain in affected, you can’t function enough to figure out what to do.

That Sunday morning, I went to church and told my friend Susan that I was so confused that I had to have help, because I didn’t know what to do next. I told her that my husband was not helping me figure it out. I was so upset that I got down on the floor and started bawling. The pastor had the women take me in a back room and pray for me. They told me a “spirit of fear” was attacking me. I knew about the spirit of fear. I had often taught about it in my Bible studies at the city jail. They were right. I realized that I had been thinking irrational thoughts, like my husband was going to put me in a mental institution. My husband doesn’t even believe in psychiatrists, so that thought made no sense whatsoever.

At the end of the service, I was in the back of the church talking to the pastor and his wife. I mentioned something about mercury to them and the pastor started to say something about “imagining things in our minds.” Then my husband spoke up and said, “I was just imagining all this.” I let him have it! I stood in the back of the church yelling at him in front of the pastor and his wife while the congregation was leaving! And we were supposed to be ministers! That is another symptom of mercury toxicity – rage.

At other times, if my husband would dare to disagree with me, I would pick up a ceramic flower pot off of the table and throw it at him or hit him with a lamp. We kept my husband’s 83 year old mother in our home and I was her caretaker. When I threw the flower pot at my husband and it came crashing to the floor, she cried and said, “I can’t live like this.”

I finally heard from a friend about an alternative doctor two hours from my home and made an appointment to go see him. I knew about this clinic because I had seen it on the Internet. I tried calling the number, but could not remember to use the area code, so the number did not go through. The clinic was located in Troutdale which would make it a long distance number for me to call. However, I kept confusing the word TROUTDALE with the word TROUTVILLE, which is near my home, and TROUTVILLE would NOT need an area code. Then finally one day my foggy head cleared up enough so that I was able to make the distinction between the two places. So then I used the area code, and the call went through.

The day before my appointment at this clinic, I tried to get prepared. But I could not get my paper work, my tests, lab work and such together without loosing the papers. I would put the papers on my desk right in front of my nose and I would still loose them! I was loosing my glasses every 5 minutes. I finally punched holes in my paperwork and stuck it in a notebook and I tied my glasses around my neck with an eyeglass cord. I struggled to put the papers in chronological order and even though I was a former schoolteacher, I had great difficulty in spelling that day.

I needed to do my laundry in the basement before going to this appointment. I also needed to do chores upstairs. So I handed my mother-in-law a list of things for me to do when I returned from doing the laundry in the basement. I said, “Grandma, please give me this list when I come back upstairs.” If I had laid the list on the kitchen table I would not have been able to find it!

The alternative doctor did a heavy metals test on me but the mercury did not show up at a toxic level. (I hear that this is fairly common.) But high levels of thallium and aluminum did show up. He DID think my symptoms were caused by mercury, especially after I was able to put the dates together concerning my visits to the dentist and the symptoms appearing shortly after my visit. It took me a couple months to put all those dates together because of the confusion in my brain. He gave me a prescription for natural hormones that helped me to begin thinking better. He gave me supplement packets that contained vitamins and minerals, fish oil, primrose oil, and probiotics that would put good bacteria in my stomach and build up my immune system. Since mercury disrupts the enzymes in the GI tract, he gave me enzymes that contained glutamine and other bowel flora. He gave me a prescription of anti fungal medication because mercury causes an overgrowth of yeast in the body.

I am better able to function now. My thinking is better, but not completely normal. Mercury attacks the endocrine system, so it messes up your hormones and thyroid. According to my doctor thyroid tests are not even accurate when you have been exposed to mercury. Test results can all be normal, therefore traditional doctors will do nothing to help you. They either do not believe that you can be poisoned from dental fillings, or that it just happens to sensitive people.

After much prayer and research, I finally found a good biological dentist who took the mercury out of ten teeth. He replaced my fillings and crowns with dental materials that were shown by a Dental Compatibility test to be compatible with my body and not cause an allergic reaction. This dentist told me he had seen other people in his office with mercury in their brains. I had to drive four hours each way for my dental revision. A family member always went with me to my appointments because I was too physically and mentally exhausted after a day of drilling to drive myself home.

When my general dentist put the crown on the tooth, he placed it over top of a mercury filling that he had only partially removed. When my biological dentist removed the crown and the mercury filling under it, he told me there was decay underneath the mercury filling. My biological dentist told me that a crown should never be placed over a mercury filling. That is why I was up all night tasting metal and sick on my stomach. The combination of metals (probably nickel) in the inferior grade of the porcelain crown was interacting with the mercury that the general dentist left in the tooth. It caused a chemical and electrical reaction that made the tooth start decaying very fast. Thus large amounts of mercury started being released from the mercury filling underneath, and caused me to feel very sick.

It is now over one year later and I am still in the process of going through detoxification, known as chelation (key lay’ shun), with low doses of the sulphur-based prescription drug called DMSA. It is made especially for me by a compounding pharmacist. It grabs hold of the mercury in my brain and pulls or chelates it out of my body’s tissues and into my urine. I spend a lot of time in the bathroom because when mercury is leaving your body your frequency of urination is very much increased. I can feel the DMSA “pulling” in my brain. I also felt it pulling the mercury out of my eyes. That was the reason that I had all those floaters. I do not know how long it will take for all the mercury to leave my body.

Don’t rush out and have your mercury fillings removed before doing research and getting educated about the dangers involved. If you allow a regular dentist to remove the fillings, you could be worse off than leaving the fillings in your mouth. The dentist should believe mercury is dangerous and toxic. An alternative source of air must be provided for the patient to breathe while the old fillings are drilled. Large amounts of water should to be used to cut down on the vapors being released. A dental dam, a piece of latex, should be placed in your mouth to catch the mercury particles as he is drilling it out. This will keep the mercury from falling under your tongue, where you might swallow it. A large high powered vacuum hose is used near the head of the patient to remove vapors while the mercury is being drilled out.

I mentioned above that I became chemically sensitive. Do not consider chemical sensitivities unimportant. One woman, with whom I have become acquainted, who was poisoned with mercury and lead, smelled Lysol at a large university where she was pursuing an advanced degree. She went into convulsions and a coma. She almost died.

Another lady in Virginia had sores in her mouth that would not heal because of the interaction of the stainless steel in her bridgework with the mercury in her fillings. (Stainless steel contains nickel.) The sores developed into cancer on her cheek that had to be surgically removed.

There may be mercury-free dentists in your city, but mercury-free does not mean he will safely remove existing mercury. Mercury free dentists simply do not add any new mercury to your teeth.

I would encourage everyone to thoroughly research the links on this site before having an emergency situation. For example, a crown should not be placed on top of mercury. Dentists usually use crowns made from porcelain, but inferior quality porcelain crowns may also have metals like nickel in them. When the nickel is placed over a mercury filling, it may start a chemical reaction in your mouth. It causes mercury to start leaching out of your fillings faster. Some dentists use gold crowns over mercury. This also causes mercury to start leaking. You do not need different types of dental metals -such as gold, copper, nickel, and mercury, in your mouth. They interact with one another and cause much illness. When the metals are interacting is when you taste metal in your mouth. That is why you need a biological dentist to remove the mercury before you have crowns added. Many persons start becoming mercury poisoned when crowns are first introduced into the mouth.

Also beware of putting metal braces in your child’s mouth if he has mercury fillings! Talk to a biological dentist for advice about safe materials for braces and about the removal of the mercury from the fillings before the placing of braces. Biological dentist Dr. Jerome Mittelman, has written a book called Healthy Teeth for Kids A Preventive Program: Prenatal through the Teens. He offers a simple, effective program to safeguard your child’s teeth and gums-starting before birth and continuing throughout the teen years.

The main symptom from mercury poisoning is the attack on your immune system. root canals also cause horrible infections in the body and pull down your immune system according to Dr. Hal Huggins. Read the book The root canal Cover-up by George Meinig. You can check the web and get lots of information.

If you are seriously ill with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, neurological diseases, or other chronic conditions or allergic reactions in your body, you will need to do a compatibility test to see what materials would be safe to put back in your mouth after the mercury is taken out. Do not take the mercury out and just put anything back in. Dr. Huggins calls this “jumping from the frying pan into the fire.” If you are sick, you need to find an alternative doctor to help you build up your immune system BEFORE you start the dental revision. A good place to start getting educated about this dental issue is to read the book It’s All in Your Head by Dr. Hal Huggins. And if you are fighting periodontal disease you need to know that mercury in your fillings is one reason people have periodontal disease and bad breath.

To be checked for heavy metals in your state, find a doctor belonging to ACAM, the American College for the Advancement in Medicine: http://www.acam.com

Not all ACAM doctors are as good as others. The first ACAM doctor I used failed to test me for heavy metals. But when I went to the second ACAM doctor, he did test me and diagnosed me as mercury poisoned.

Be careful of detox methods. I would be very careful of DMPS as many have had bad side effects. See http://www.dmpsbackfire.com. DMSA can be safe if done in small doses. See my protocol for taking DMSA.

SYMPTOMS

Hundreds of symptoms may be due to chronic mercury toxicity. The organ most affected is often the brain, and children suffer the most from many mercury-related disorders. Mercury may be a factor in increasing birth defect rates, autism and other developmental delays, ADHD and other learning disorders, anxieties, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive behavior, panic attacks, neuroses and paresthesias. A medical colleague reports that every case of multiple sclerosis he has seen involves mercury.

The “mat hatters” of the Alice In Wonderland story were real people who worked in the hat industry in the nineteenth century. Many became mentally ill due to rubbing mercury on felt or hides to soften it.
Here is a long list of symptoms and conditions that may be associated with mercury. Note that mercury toxicity is usually found with copper toxicity, and perhaps other metal toxicity. So it is not always possible to separate the cause of the symptoms exactly:
~ Acne – Opportunistic infections cause by general immune suppression.
~ Adrenal insufficiency and burnout.
~ Allergies – Gut wall deterioration via mutated intestinal flora)
~ Anorexia
· ~ Apathy, Feelings of (especially toward property and personal affairs)
· ~ Asthma
· ~ Ataxia
· ~ Autism (contrary to popular belief, there is very strong medical evidence linking autism to mercury)
· ~ Nearsightedness & Farsightedness (by altering interocular fluid eye pressure)
· ~ Autoimmune Diseases (through methionine mimicry and other processes)
· ~ Amylotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
· ~ Ankylosing spondylitis
· ~ Arterial Sclerosis
· ~ Mercury activates an enzyme called phospholipase D (PLD) in cells which line blood vessel walls (endothelial cells). This activation causes the release of phosphatidic acid which damages the cells.(2) These damaged cells then accumulate cholesterol-based plaque leading to arterial sclerosis.
· ~ Kuopio Ischemic Heart Disease Risk Factor (KIHD) study: 2,005 men (ages 42 to 60) without heart disease are divided into four groups based on hair-mercury content and tracked for an average of 12 years. Those in the top 25 percent for hair mercury had a 60% increased risk of death from CVD. Those same men had a 70% increased risk of coronary heart disease.(7)
· ~ Myasthenia Gravis
· ~ Parkinson’s Disease
· ~ Acid Reflux – Caused by reduced digestive fluid production.
· ~ Alzheimer’s Disease (See Beating Alzheimer’s) Quote From Book Review: “He had the mercury removed from his teeth and it did not change things. However,some time later when his gums were x-rayed a tiny sliver of mercury was found in the gum tissue. He had surgery to remove this minute piece of mercury and at the moment of its removal he experienced complete lucidity.”
· ~ Aneurysm
· ~ Anxiety
· ~ Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
· ~ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Symptoms may be ill-defined because the exact location and the amount of mercury vary with each individual. Metal toxicity is unlike many infections that have well-defined symptom presentations.

DETECTION

Chronic mercury toxicity does not receive more attention because it is difficult to detect. Simple blood or urine tests are practically useless because the body quickly removes mercury from the blood. It often settles deep in the tissues of the brain, kidneys and liver.

Urine or Feces Challenge Tests. These are common methods for detecting chronic mercury. A high dose of DMPS, a chelating drug that is not safe, is often administered. Then urine is collected for 24-hour hours and analyzed for mercury. The test is almost always “positive”. This may be because mercury is high in many sick people. However, the lab and doctor must be careful not to confuse a “normal” mercury with a mercury produced by a challenge test.
Other problems with this test are that it misses a lot of mercury. The drug does not penetrate the blood-brain barrier very well, so it often misses this key organ where mercury accumulates.

Hair Tissue Biopsy. Any hair level of mercury above about 0.02 mg% is too much in my view. Mercury does not always accumulate in large quantity in the hair. In my experience, however, the hair mineral test provides indicators of ‘hidden mercury’ that are relatively reliable as well. These include:
· An elevated copper above about 2.5 mg%.
· Hidden copper toxicity indicators such as a high hair calcium, a low hair potassium, a low sodium/potassium ratio and a low zinc level. For more on copper, read Copper Toxicity Syndrome.
· Indicators for a hidden zinc deficiency. For more information about zinc, read Zinc on this website.
· Elevated levels of cadmium, arsenic or aluminum often indicate the presence of hidden mercury.

Using these criteria, most people have excess mercury today. This is no surprise. I assume excess mercury is present and contributing to chronic health problems today, especially for those who were vaccinated, those who eat fish at least twice weekly and for those who have or had dental amalgams in their mouths.

Other detection methods. A few practitioners use electrical machines or applied kinesiology techniques (muscle checking) to identify mercury problems. These methods are okay, but are dependent on the skill and clarity of the operator.

MERCURY to “QUAK”

Posted in FYI BITS- MEDI, MERCURY POISONING, MINERALS tagged , , , , , , , at 6:31 pm by PCOSLady

MERCURY TO A MEDICAL “QUAK”

http://www.drlwilson.com/articles/MERCURY.htm
~ Dr L Wilson …

Dental Materials. Studies demonstrate that each time one bites down on a mercury filling, some mercury vapor, the most dangerous form of mercury, escapes. The amount that escapes is tiny, but it occurs thousands of times each day. It can quickly travel directly to the brain, an organ easily damaged by mercury.

The word “quack” originally referred to doctors and dentists who advocated mercury amalgams. When mercury amalgams were introduced over 100 years ago, most medical professionals, including the AMA and the ADA, rejected their use as too dangerous. However, those who wanted cheap, quick fillings that did not become infected used them anyway.

The word for mercury in German is “quacksalver”. The mercury dentists and doctors were nicknamed “quacks” by the more respectable doctors. Eventually, mercury amalgams were accepted by the AMA and the ADA. We can only hope these groups return to their original opinion of this abominable practice.

MERCURY POISONING SYMPTOMS
~ ~ ~
http://www.life123.com/health/first-aid/food-poisoning/mercury-poisoning-symptoms.shtml
~
By: Aysha Schurman
Mercury poisoning symptoms are rather hard to ignore. The poison will affect the entire body, not just a single area. The exact symptoms can change from person to person, but left untreated, severe mercury poisoning can be deadly.
~
What Is Mercury?
Mercury is a naturally occurring metal that exists all around us. It can be highly dangerous in large quantities and poisonous to most living organisms. Mercury can be found in the air, water and soil. It is silver colored, but odorless and tasteless. There are three forms of mercury that can cause poisoning: elemental, inorganic and organic.
~
Mercury Poisoning Symptoms
In large quantities, mercury is deadly. It not only causes many severe symptoms, it can compromise the immune system. So in addition to symptoms from the poisoning, you can contract other diseases and other symptoms due to the mercury poisoning. This sometimes makes mercury poisoning hard to identify and treat.
What mercury poisoning symptoms you present can depend entirely on what type of mercury you were exposed to. Symptoms can range from loss of teeth, hives or fever to rashes, skin lesions or a metallic taste.
~
Psychological disturbances: ~ mood swings ~ anxiety ~ anger ~ depression ~ memory loss ~ irritability
Neurological disturbances: ~ dizziness ~ twitching ~ headaches ~ tremors
Gastrointestinal disturbances: ~ diarrhea ~ stomach cramps ~ other gastrointestinal problems
Respiratory disturbances: ~ emphysema ~ shallow breathing ~ a constant cough
Cardiovascular disturbances: ~ chest pains ~ weak pulse ~ an irregular heartbeat
Basic sense disturbances: ~ impaired vision ~ speech ~ hearing ~ coordination
Oral disturbances: ~ loss of teeth ~ gum discoloration ~ gum bleeding ~ a metallic taste
~
Mercury Poisoning Treatment
The exact treatment needed for mercury poisoning depends on the type of mercury you are exposed to. At the very least you will need to visit your doctor if you suspect you have mercury poisoning. It’s likely you will be admitted to the hospital for several different treatments and medications if the mercury poisoning is anything other than very minor.

~
QUOTES:
“Mercury poisoning is impaired oxidation. It’s like having an invisible cord around your neck that’s strangling you, but you can’t feel that the cord is there. (The strangulations) is biochemical, but the principal is the same: mercury reduces the amount of oxygen that you get.”
Dr. Alfred Zamm, M.D., F.A.C.P. “…
~
“Slow healing” is in part a result of zinc deficiency. Mercury interferes with zinc metabolism.”
“Chronic fatigue” is a result of insufficient oxygen to the cells. Mercury interferes with the ability of hemoglobin to transport oxygen” and “…..ringing in the ears” is related to manganese deficiency. Mercury interferes with manganese metabolism.”
It’s All In Your Head, by Hal A. Huggins, DDS
~
“Mercury is associated with 258 different symptoms and copper with over 100. Almost all my patients who had their mercury-based fillings removed show moderate to dramatic improvement in their health in usually less than one month.”
Dr. David J. Nickel, O.M.D., L.Ac of Santa Monica California (from Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Environmental Illness, by Burton Goldberg.
~
“Research has demonstrated that the body’s tissues – especially in the brain, kidneys, jaw, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and liver -absorb and store mercury.”
Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Environmental Illness, by Burton Goldberg
~
“After he underwent a root canal at the age of 15, Earl suffered severe fatigue and anxiety. At 28, he had a nervous breakdown. At the age of 32, suffering from fatigue, anger, anxiety, back problems, low blood sugar, nervousness, ringing in his ears, concentration loss, and prematurely graying hair, he consulted acupuncturist. Dr. David J. Nickel, O.M.D., L.Ac. of Santa Monica, California performed a mercury vapor analysis on Earl’s teeth and found that the level of toxic fumes from Earl’s six mercury amalgam fillings was 42 times higher than the Environmental Protection Agency’s maximum allowable limit.
He was put on supplements and there was significant improvement in his metabolic rate and blood sugar levels, he had all six mercury amalgams and his root canal tooth removed. Earl said, “I don’t remember when I have ever felt so good.”

Mercury poisoning: Are you affected?
~
FACTS:
Mercury amalgams (silver fillings)
* Most mercury amalgams are composed of approximately 50% mercury, 35% silver and 15% tin, copper and/or zinc. * Mercury is the major ingredient amounting to about one-half gram per amalgam. In the words of Professor Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky, that is a “colossal” amount of mercury in scientific terms—as much, in fact, as is in a thermometer. A teenager with six fillings has six mercury thermometers worth of mercury in his or her mouth.
~
It should be noted that the more copper present in the amalgam, the more mercury vapor is released proportionally.
• Mercury atoms are continually released into the mouth with 80% absorbed by the lungs.
• Each and every amalgam daily releases on the order of 10 micrograms of mercury into the body (i.e. 3,000,000,000,000,000 mercury atoms per day).
• More than 2/3 of the excretable mercury in humans is derived from amalgams.
• People exposed to mercury on a sustained basis are at risk of lowered fertility.
• Mercury crosses the maternal placenta into the tissue of a developing fetus.
• Mercury immediately and continually challenges kidney function.
• Mercury can enhance the prevalence of multiple antibiotic resistant intestinal bacteria.
• Dentists, who collectively use 300 metric tons of mercury in amalgams each year and who often have two to five times the typical concentration of mercury in their urine, experience subtle neural and behavioral anomalies. 2,3
~
Vaccines
A very controversial source of mercury is vaccines, second only to mercury amalgams in terms of primary sources of mercury toxicity. Thimerosal (49.6% ethyl mercury) has been used as a preservative and adjuvant in most vaccines since 1931. After the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) went into effect in October 1,1988, citizens who were injured by a vaccine or vaccines could not sue the manufacturer directly but had to first file a claim with VICP.

What’s the human body made of? Ninety-nine percent consists of atoms of just six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus, with the remaining one percent consisting of trace elements like magnesium, sulfur, and iron.
~
But where did those elements come from? That question long presented a puzzle to scientists. At least it did until the publication of a now-obscure scientific paper in the middle of the twentieth century, as celebrated astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson explains in a new video (above).
~
“There was a seminal paper — one of the most important research papers ever published — that gave us the description of the origin of the elements,” Tyson says in the video.
~
The paper is entitled “Synthesis of the Elements in Stars” but is sometimes referred to as the B2FH paper, after the authors’ initials
. It was published in Reviews of Modern Physics in 1957. Before its publication, the prevailing theory held that all elements were products of the Big Bang 15 billion years ago. But this theory accounted only for light elements like hydrogen and helium.
~
So where did the heavy elements found in nature come from?
~
The B2FH paper argued that all heavy elements were created within stars via nuclear fusion — a process known as stellar nucleosynthesis. As stars cool and “die,” they release the heavy elements into space. Ultimately, some of this material is incorporated into planets and even our bodies.
~
If the paper was so important, why do so few nonscientists know about it? According to Tyson, it’s because the paper’s origins don’t fit conventional notions of scientific discovery.
~
“There was no lone scientist burning the midnight oil making the eureka discovery,” Tyson says. “It was a little messier than that. But the consequences of it are profound.”

PCOS Lady:
Your doctor rarely ever checks your nutrients and vitamins… Did you know the blood is the last thing to check on you? Why? Because when something shows up in your blood your body is starting to die inside!!!! Your doctor should be checking your nutrients and vitamins as well! I suggest you have them all checked at some point to see where your levels are… A Basis… Then get them in line and reevaluate your symptoms a month later… I am going on 1st hand observation and ongoing research i read into…
~ Hair Mineral Analysis checks minerals and nutrients in you…
~
* NOTE: The best way to get the nutrients and vitamins is to eat the foods that contain them! Otherwise your body disposes of most of the supplement pills, wasting your money…
~ Dr Oz did explain you can take half the pills (cut in half each pill) in the am and pm, which should help cut down on waste…
~
* We know most doctors love to treat symptoms! Research your symptoms, know where they originate if you can… Do not become a “zombie” from being over medicated or misdiagnosed or misdiagnosed…

Magnesium ~ Epsom Salts

Posted in MINERALS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:39 pm by PCOSLady

MAGNESIUM ~ EPSOM SALTS
~
http://www.ehow.com/how_4887228_epsom-salt-number-of-ways.html
~ EHow …
Increase your magnesium levels in your body by soaking in Epsom salt bath water three times weekly. While it is extremely difficult to get enough magnesium in our systems through our diets, it is readily absorbs into our systems through our skin. Magnesium is needed by our bodies for many functions; however, a doctor should be consulted prior to extensive use, particularly for those with kidney problems. Magnesium works to activate many other enzymes our body needs.
~
Magnesium is useful in the treatment of asthma, COPD, fibromyalgia, ADD, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, angina, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, fatigue, kidney stones, migraine and tension headaches, complications due to pregnancy and premenstrual syndrome. Our bodies cannot properly use serotonin without the assistance of magnesium. Serotonin is a natural chemical created within the brain responsible for feelings of well being and relaxation. So maybe there is something to that saying “Calgon take me away”?

Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/12/17/magnesium-benefits.aspx?e_cid=20121217_DNL_art_1
~ Dr Mercola … Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined… A number of studies have previously shown magnesium can benefit your blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke. But its role in human health appears to be far more complex than previously thought, and—like vitamin D—its benefits may be more far-reaching than we’ve imagined. GreenMedInfo.com‘s database project has indexed over 100 health benefits of magnesium so far, including therapeutic benefits for: Fibromyalgia, Cardiovascular disease, Atrial fibrillation, Migraine, Type 2 diabetes, Aging, Premenstrual syndrome, Mortality… As you age: Age — older adults are more likely to be magnesium deficient because absorption decreases with age and the elderly are more likely to take medications that can interfere with absorption… Diabetes, especially if it’s poorly controlled, leading increased magnesium loss in urine…

Egg Scandal

Posted in MINERALS tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 10:22 pm by PCOSLady

Egg Scandal
~
PCOS Lady:
EggLands Best is the best… Marked EB on each egg…
~
NOTE
~ Only boil eggs 6 – 7 minutes for hard boiled OR eggs are rancid (bad)…
~ Easy scramble eggs OR eggs are rancid (bad)…
~
http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/whats-the-big-deal-with-egg-yolks-anyway.html
~
What’s the Big Deal with Egg Yolks Anyway?

~
Egg yolks actually contain all the healthy, fatty acids that are contained within the egg. It is a nucleus of wholesome goodness that supplied our ancestors with their sustenance since before they were upright. When you strip away the egg yolk and eat only the white, you’re completely missing out on the benefits of those fatty acids like the Omega-3 fats.
~
Egg yolks also contain over 80% of the overall vitamins and minerals that can be found within the egg as a whole
. The facts point to the conclusion that the egg should be consumed without division. In the process of eliminating the cholesterol intake by shedding the egg yolks, you’re losing the majority of the vitamins and minerals such as: Iron, Potassium, Folate, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, Vitamin D, Biotin, and Choline.
~
There is a line dividing many people about whether egg yolks are safe to eat, mainly due to the issues with cholesterol. The fact remains that the bulk of the nutrition in an egg comes from the yolk (including 1/5 of the total protein). Logic would dictate that if you are a person who has an issue with cholesterol, you shouldn’t eat eggs on a constant basis, but when you do you should eat the whole thing.
~
The issue of cholesterol is completely negligible and recent studies such as those performed by the University of Science have proven that other nutrients within the egg yolks can actually help the body manage the cholesterol intake. Vitamin B (particularly Riboflavin) has been known to aid in lowering cholesterol levels and the Lecithin within the egg prevents much of the cholesterol from even being absorbed within your digestive tract. There have also been some preliminary research done into the antioxidant Lutien which may reduce inflammation in the body, which is a much more deadly problem in the heart disease battle.”
