Dear Dr Stoll,Wow!You've come a long way since the days of Prodigy.
I was DXed with MS 31/2 years ago. I immediately started on the Multiple Suupport Program (vit, minerals and herbs)I later had my fillings replaced and took DMSA for about a year. I recently began seeing an alternative medicine doctor. I learned that I had lead poisoning and began chelation therapy. I've done bowel detox twice and am still taking probiotics because I learned that I had none of the good bacteria that I should have. When I began chelation I took a 24 hr metal test and along with learning about the lead I also learned that my copper level was extremely low.
My copper/zinc ratio was 200/1. My doctor told me that normal is 10/1. I began taking copper. Now I'm done with chelation...my lead is gone as well as my mercury.But my copper level has also dropped. Now my copper/zinc ratio is 600/1, What would you recommend for me now? I've also been having a lot of headaches and nausea. What do you think this could be from?
Sincerely, Judy Lannigan

Do you know how well you are absorbing minerals? Do you have LGS as an adjunctive contributor to your other problems? A knowledgable medical nutritionist would know how to use injectable copper to bring up your ratios. Certainly at this point, that should be considered.
How are your MS symptoms?
Are you doing an effective skilled relaxation technique at least twice a day?
Glad you are back!
