Hi. I've been doing a lot of research for my many health problems and decided that an internal cleanse was crucial. I have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Immune System Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia, Irritable bowel syndrome with severe constipation, chronic candiditis adrenal fatigue, borderline hypothyroid, sleep disorder, Hormonal disturbances due to a tubal ligation (female castration, it causes the ovaries to just about die within two years of the procedure) iron and b-12 anemia, and possible mercury poisoning from many' amalgam fillings and vaccinations.
I have no energy, I can't sleep, losing hair like crazy, I crash after a stressful event, dark circles, weak thin nails, brain fog and poor memory, a thick feeling in the front of my lower throat, difficulties in reaching climax, dry skin and hair, extremely sensitive to cold, cold hands and feet, low body temperature, hypotension, (low blood pressure) 7 day long, clotted, painful, heavy monthly cycles, lengthy sinus infections, itchy waxy ears, difficulty loosing weight, hypersensitive nervous system, 3.5 cm uric acid kidney stone, (to stick on atkins diet there) heck, I can't even remember all my symptoms, but I know there are more.
I had done one 9 day cleanse already and didn't get the results I wanted, so I tried another. I hit the jackpot this time. It started releasing all the mucoid plaque that was stuck and built up in my intestinal walls, working on the candida and other "wigglies" (parasites) that are common in most of us now too.
What I did not expect was that my normally thin, weak, and easily split or broken nails got thicker and stopped splitting while growing like crazy. The dark circles under my eyes are disappearing, I've lost 10 lbs so far, I use the bathroom several times a day now verses maybe once a day or once a week depending on my stress level, they are quick and easy and I use much less tp. I also don't feel so bloated in my upper abdomen after a meal which took hours to go away. My female cycle is much shorter with lighter flow now too with much less pain the first day or two. I don't get heartburn anymore either.
I know I cannot name the cleanse, but it's recommended that you do it for 3 months. It's 3 simple easy steps a day plus at least 64 oz of pure clean water and no fasting is required. Pills and a fiber blend in the drink of your choice on rising, water throughout the day, and a cup of their tea at night. Plus, it's very gentle and no need to feel you can't be near a bathroom. On the site there are pages and pages of pictures that clients have sent in showing the actual mucoid ropes that have been expelled from their body. Plus the amount of testimonies sent in is amazing, with all number of ailments disappearing. If you don't do the recommended toxin cleansing program this company makes as well, you also should be taking a good quality pro-biotic to replace the yeast that the system is removing from your insides and keep it from coming back.
I believe the stronger finger nails have resulted because where the plaque was removed nutrients can now enter my body and be absorbed. I think the dark circles are clearing up from the toxin removal. I have noticed a toxin headache as I call it usually the day before a section of plaque shows up the next day. Once it's out of the body, the headache disappears. They have ranged from black, hard, and rubbery to light-dark tan, looking like a leg of pantyhose with chicken livers every half inch or so.
I plan to continue on this cleanse until I'm satisfied that I'm clean inside. I then plan to do a cleanse on the other systems of the body to further remove toxins and acid buildup.
I had tried this companies toxin program, but after 2 weeks I broke out in extremely itchy tiny bumps that I thought were spider bites until I poked one with a needle and clear fluid came out. Then I realized I'd had these before, only just one or two at a time on my hands, so I figured it was either an allergic reaction to something in that cleanse or I was having a cleansing reaction and had to stop.
In the mean time, I've recently started taking OR ACV with the mother with OR honey, and I just started the BS molasses. I find that if I miss a dose of the acv/h mixture, my hands go right back to being cold again by the end of the day. I'm suppose to be on the baking soda for the rest of my life due to the kidney stones and I feel another in there now so I'm doing that in my water, along with the celtic sea salt and lugol's solution of iodine for my thyroid. I also just started on the zinc to displace the mercury and want to start chlorella to detox as well. I found an herb supplier that sells cosmetic grade borax and plan to get some of that and try it too. (thank you for all your suggestions Ted!)
A few other things I have done to decrease my toxin overload was to switch to all homemade household cleaners and laundry detergents, eliminated air fresheners, and switched to all organic body products and makeup. I have a well in a area thought to be contaminated so I only drink reverse osmosis water. I plan to get a shower filter eventually.
I've read that dry skin brushing before your shower can help stimulate the lymphatic system, as can rebounding on a mini trampoline. If you've ever read the multitude of health benefits of rebounding you would be sold too. I hope to get one of those soon. There is a famous Dr T who has a web site that just sent out a newsletter stating both were highly beneficial to CFS/Fibro.
Infared saunas can help with the detoxification of yeast die-off.
Another thing that I have done that really helped with me the fibro was doing yoga (before a serious injury I had a year ago that caused me to quit), I had much less aches and pains, felt more energetic and less stressed. I think I'm recovered enough now to try and get back into it. It was the Sivinada style if anyone is interested. I also am a reiki master/teacher and use that on myself, I use flower essenses and essential oils as well.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the things I was doing that was helping and I anticipate helping more as I rid my body of all that toxic, poisonous junk. It's all well and fine to use things to build the system back up, but you must eliminate the contaminates that are causing the symptoms as well. Blessings to all!

Was poisoned by a dentist in Troon and I am at my wits end who to turn to for help! Blood tests showed low levels of Mercury in system but why afterwards have I all the symptoms agitation anxiety dark thoughts battery mouth poor memory. What scares me is that they say you don't improve till all the mercury fillings are removed I'm terrified to go near a dentist after this experience. Not to mention the awful gastric problems. Could someone advise please.

This is a request to Amy from LA who wrote a post on getting rid of her fillings on 5/20/2009. I am looking to do the same and live also in LA would like to ask her who is her doctor? Is there any way I could contact Amy?

I have both candida and mercury toxicity. I don't know how I was able to live until the age of 42 with complete abandon while having a mouth full of toxic mercury since I was a kid, but such was the case.
I'm still scratching my head as to what could have caused this candida. Surgery? Too many herbal extractions recommended by someone who was attempting to help me treat breast cancer? I honestly don't know. What I do know is that I was diagnosed with heavy mercury toxicity and got all amalgams removed. That was nine years ago.
The breast cancer is under control, but the intestinal fungus rages on, and this is the year to face it. I've been eating low carb since the beginning of the year. That just made me worse. Then I incorporated coconut oil (6 tablespoons a day). That was great...for about a week or two. Then chronic constipation returned. Today I am adding baking soda (1 tsp in am and 1 tsp in pm) to help alkalinize the system.
My question is this: if you have chronic constipation due to candida, which is exacerbated by your mercury toxicity, how can you properly chelate the mercury out of your system if you are always constipated?

I had mercury amalgams for 34 years and recently had them safely removed. I can't prove a definite connection, but whenever I take lots of cilantro and chlorella or any other such detox, my wrist watch stops, or the light on my wrist watch stops working even though the battery tests OK. This has happened for years, before and after I had them removed. I think it might be the increased electrical activity from the heavy metals pulled out of deep tissue and circulating in the system. Has anyone else experienced this? (If this is so, no wonder it causes so much havoc in the human body).

I had a hypothyroid condition for over 10 years caused by Hashimoto's Disease where my body produced antibodies to attack my thyroid. I was told this auto-immune disease was completely incurable.
I had terrible toxicity symptoms from extreme fatigue, dizzy spells, memory loss, and multiple food intolerances. Anything that had pesticides, especially herbs, caused near anaphlyactic responses.
I was taking 125 mcg synthroid for 10 years. I never felt right.
I found when I took kelp, my thyroid increased but sometimes it went too high.
I did a lot of research on mercury fillings and decided to have a bio dentist remove them safely. I felt worse as they removed several at each visit. On my last visit, something remarkable happened. The next morning after my last amalgam was removed my basal body temperature returned to normal for the first time in my life.
I ended up in the ER because my thyroid became over active from the medication. The doctor looked at me like I was crazy when I told him it was because of my fillings. My tests confirmed that my thyroid was working on its own and I no longer needed medication. I have been free of hypothyroidism for 5 years now!
Please research the effects of mercury on your hormones. My endocrinologist now makes all of her patients remove their amalgams. She has found great evidence that women in menopause can not balance their hormones until their old fillings have been replaced with more bio compatible fillings. No more silver!!!
It's also important to use chlorella to remove remaining mercury immediately following your dentist visit after amalgam removal.

The only things listed here that actually chelate mercury are cilantro (proper dosing schedule unknown) and DMPS (must be taken repeatedly in low doses every eight hours or less - the bad side effects describe below are due to a bad dosing schedule - it's half life is eight hours, and if you take it every other day or something like that, it'll pick up the mercury in your system then drop it off unpredictably when it wears off - hence the bad side effects).
The most effective chelator - to get the poison out of your organs and brain is Alpha Lipoic Acid - in LOW does every *three* hours or less *around the clock*.
For more detailed information, Google Andy Cutler, "Amalgam Illness"
EC: DMPS = Dimercapto-propane sulfonate, a drug not approved by the FDA.

I have now been oil pulling for two months both morning and night. Twenty-eight years ago I was exposed to agent orange here in Hawaii from the pineapple fields. It had gotten into the water supply. I have been ill ever since, I especially suffered from migraines. To make things worse I have heavy metal poisoning that is off the charts.
Two friends put their grandmother's rosaries on me and prayed for me by my request... as I had been feeling so terrible.. kept telling my friends that my blood feels poisoned. That night I found EarthClinic and my prayer was answered. My life has been restored to me. Glory be to Buddha, Marys, Christ, angels and all the Saints! HO!
I have consistent energy. I no longer feel poisoned, my blood feels joyous! I am sleeping so deeply from the very first day I tried it. Now that I feel so good, I understand how deeply sick I've been all this time. My body feels so relieved not to start the day with a toxic overload. A new acquaintance of mine said that since she's known me she can't believe the quality of my skin...
I have tried for over 28 years many modalities, herbal medicines, prescription medicines.. nothing helped me.. I began to feel I was the only person on earth who could not heal... and I'm a healer... I am healing and everyday I am amazed, startled, surprised, delighted that I wake up feeling grrreat! Blessed Be!
Heavy metal Detox: Oil pulling with peppermint oil, or in some cases added tea tree. Cod liver oil I think is better than sunflower oil, but the problem seems obvious, they are not easily found and quite expensive.
There are more, but those are the main ones.
Oil pulling removes heavy metals from your body, including the heavy metal filings with exception of ceramic fillings. All this is just my experience. You have to decide yourself to do oil pulling or not. If you don't want to rid of fillings and hence heavy metals, then oil pulling should not be done. A preferred remedy that has less negative effect then oil pulling is a simple mouth detox, which is simply saturated solution baking soda and one drop peppermint mouthwash. This one will have the least problems in that it doesn't remove the fillings, but seems to be protective of enamel degradation.
Anywhere where there is coal operated plants, they normally dump into the ocean or rivers or lakes. The average plant dumps about 100 lb. of mercury a year into the ocean. My daughter's physician told her not to eat any fish anymore, that it is much worse than what they tell us.
EC: Lynn, thank you so very much for this heavy metal detox recipe!
Olive Oil, Cilantro and Garlic
Hello. My daughter about 8 months ago was diagnosed with heavy mercury levels. She was so incapacitated that we thought it was Lyme Disease. From eating fish in Ventura County, California!! We used a formula that leached it out and within about 4 months her blood levels were normal again.
Recipe is as follows as given by a physician in Japan:
1 cup of Extra Virgin organic olive oil (first cold pressed)
2 large bunches of cilantro
8 large cloves of garlic
Puree in blender and take 3 teaspoons a day.
Leaches mercury and heavy metals. Must be careful, tho, if leach out to much too fast can shut down your kidneys and liver.
We found putting it on bread with a tiny bit of parmesan cheese and grilling it was yummy way to get your "medicine"

All too often illness becomes over complicated leaving the patient confused and frustrated.
To simplify ill health let us break it down to it's most basic form.
You and I are made of cells, trillions of them, from your eyes to your toes. When you become sick it is only one of two problems.
Either your cells (that's you) cannot absorb the the correct nutrients (hello poor diet) or the cells (that's you again) are over loaded with toxins.
In a nut shell getting the toxins out and the nutrients in is the key to all good health.
The secret to removing the toxins / heavy metals is to do it gently, the chances are your liver and kidneys have not being doing their job correctly which has now resulted in you becoming sick and feeling the need to read this.
So if that is true it would be prudent not to dump a whole load of heavy metals into you blood stream expecting your liver and kidneys to pick up the slack, it ain't going to happen and you will run the risk of becoming even more sick.
A sensible approach is whats needed but we are all in such a rush to get back to functioning so that we can work /pay our bills on time etc etc that we can sometimes throw common sense out of the window.
Here's the rub, heavy metals can be stored anywhere, even in your brain, (think Mercury) eyes, muscles and even in your bones. (lead)
So before we open the flood gates it might be worth having our vital detoxification organs working on our team.
A solid kidney cleanse is the first thing I would suggest and one can be found at Granma's Herbs, I have personally used this to good effect but as always start small and go slow, at the same time you can start a very gentle liver detox using Milk Thistle, there are numerous brands on the market that have acceptable results.
Cleaning the liver and kidneys are not things you can do over night but you are now moving in the right direction. I would suggest you stay on this protocol for at least 8 weeks and don't be too shocked if as a side effect you start to feel a little better. You know your body better than anyone else and I would urge you to use your own judgement, it might take a little longer and that's OK too.
OK so far so good, now we can start to look at removing the burden of heavy metals from your system. While there are numerous ways to do this I don't want to make this any more complicated than it has to be.
A great starting point would be to use a quarter teaspoon of Chlorella 3 times a day, this will bind up mostly Mercury from the gut, it's not going to remove it from the brain but as always I like to suggest we do one thing at a time and do our best to do it right.
Stick with the Chlorella for a month or so and don't be surprised if once again a welcome side effect is you start to feel a little better.
Stay with me here we haven't said anything yet that you can't do, all too often when a person suffers from heavy metals toxicity it's a real effort to stay focused without becoming overwhelmed.
So let me recap, we are going to assist the kidneys and the ideal product to do that you will find at Granma's Herbs.com, a decent Milk thistle you will find on Amazon, do these two things until you feel a little more prepared for the fight ahead of you. This can take as long as you feel comfortable with, it's not hard or fast.
Once you get to a point where you feel your life is improving we can start to take a new product called Chlorella. Small but regular doses of Chlorella are a God send, a good size is quarter of a tea spoon 3 times a day.
Once you feel you have your life back under control there are many numerous and wild paths available to you but I really want to make your life and path to healing very simple.
I feel it unwise to go on in great detail writing about too many products or speak about those important areas such as the blood brain barrier when at this moment in time all's you really you need is a fix right? (Please take note I did not say quick fix)
Of all the products out there some are expensive some are darn right dangerous but one in particular is extremely useful.
The name of this product is Chelorex and it was designed by Dr. Alan Greenberg. It takes all of the guess work out of removing heavy metals. It's really not that expensive and I know that it works
With heavy metals there is a healing triangle consisting of 3 things, Chlorealla ALA and Cilantro, get these 3 things in the wrong balance you will wish you never started, cilantro on it's own will only serve to stir things up, Chlorella as we learned earlier will only bind up metals in the gut, ALA will indeed cross the blood brain barrier but these need to be in the correct balance. Fortunately this combination has been calculated for you in the Chelorex formula.
I am a firm believer in starting anything new with a small test dose, so I would suggest for the first few weeks doing a half of what it says on the label. I have suggested this product on several people and all have come back to me with positive results. I have personally used Chelorex to astonishing effect,
So your path to healing is fairly simple, Yes there are many other ways but all too often people become confused by the mountain of information out there, they go off and try a little of this and a little of that and it ends up not working.To make it easier I am again going to recap below. If you stay on this path health is yours to claim back, from then on it's up to you to keep it.
Step 1. Get your filters working again (liver/kidney) do this slowly and gently, this is not something to rush. Only move to the next step when you "feel" it's right to do so. This might take 8 weeks or more. You know your own body far better than me or anyone else.
Step 2. Start a small but regular dose of Chlorella, quarter of teaspoon 3 times a day. Again stay at this point until YOU feel it's within you reach to move forward.
Step 3. Order Chelorex and take it at half the recommended dose, do this for several months or simply stay there until you get back to a reasonable form of health.
Step 4. You should by now be reducing Heavy metals faster than they are coming into your body. This is great but in order to win this battle you must now start to be pro active and stop new toxins entering your body.
Stay away from fish, ignorant dentists, most household chemicals (do some homework on this) and question the over use of vaccines. They have the potential to a great deal of harm. Your Doctor has the potential to make incredibly poor judgement calls that can have long term affects on you and your children.
Step 5. I urge you to question what has always been, do your own independent research BEFORE you go to the doctors or the dentist. Go that extra mile and be comfortable in your knowledge of such things rather than accepting some one else's word. Above all else take responsibility for your own health.
Step 6. Change your diet, it might seem strange leaving this so late on this list but it's far easier for me to overwhelm you than it is to get you to listen.
Had I started talking about the importance of diet earlier I'm sure you would have jumped to so many conclusions that I would have lost your interest and wasted my time.
I hear you Diet, yup Blar Blar Balr. But the absolute truth is diet is critical . We all think we have a good diet but people with great diets rarely get sick. If you take home one message from this section let it be this, Green to detoxify, greens are your friend, greens will help you, greens will keep you from slipping back. EAT THEM!
Step 7. In a world of too much information I can reveal in one word the diet you should follow. Paelo. It's the way your ancestors used to eat and it's really very easy to follow, There are no calories to count, you just eat as many fresh vegetables as you want, as much fresh fruit as you want and as much decent quality meat as you want, yes its important to combine them but I will save that for another topic. Yes, I know organic is expensive (but so is ill health) so if money is tight I would still urge you to make that first step and start eating greens, fresh fruit and decent quality meats. (grass fed would be awesome) This is a process and you shouldn't need to feel the added pressure of me forcing a new diet on you. Take it a step at a time, try to improve your diet a little at a time.
Step 8. Last but by no means least, once you are back on your feet remember there are people out here willing to give up their time to help you, a complete stranger. We don't seek any recognition reward or gain.
It would really mean a lot to me personally if you once you are well you could in turn find the time to help someone else.
Kindest Regards, James222
Hi. I have seen it asked a few times, with no responses from anyone: How does taking selenium to detox your body of mercury effect one's dental fillings? Will it make the fillings loose and cause them to fall out? Will it pull more mercury from the fillings to absorb into your body and defeat the purpose of trying to detox?
Selenium for mercury poisoning:
Selenium binds with mercury in the blood & escorts the mercury out to urine, bowels.
The amalgam fillings in the mouth releases mercury vapor & is absorbed through the saliva, open cavities,
How? Under pressure, like during chewing, the grinding process friction under certain psi (per square inch). During this process the mercury molecules goes up to the surface of the tooth causing again the Hg(mercury) to get absorbed through the food ,saliva & so we sawllow it. Imagine the accumulation each time we eat & masticate with those bony chicken. The first & foremost lethal dose of Hg poisoning is through the tooth fillings.
Search more about this topic before you take action. There is so much research supports this theory. In Europe amalgam fillings is banned since 1992.
Google Sweden Geotechnical Institute or Cecilia Toomvalii
I'd like to make it clear that when you decide to get rid of amalgam fillings, you will face a very hard decision. B4 you start the decision making, see how the specialists get the amalgam out. It is cautiously, very very intricate process. The clinic has to be ventilated, & the dentists/specialists/staff looks like astronauts. They look like they are going to another planet looking 4 for weapon of mass destruction.This is b/c of the vapor that is released, during again, the grinding.
This is not a complete protocol in the treatment of HG poisoning. Please read as much as you can. Filling it in is equally dangerous as
getting it out.
My decison was to pull them b/c they are too many.(7+ not surfaces/huge fillings.
It is a huge controversy right now but hopefully the NKIDD/NIH will get rid of it. HG+ Lead( pipes H2O) + other metals is a ticking time bomb.
I am so grateful for the sore throat, IC remedy. My deepest Gratitude to all.
A grateful dentist. I have all the symptoms due to my profession.
