Hi Walt,

I have been frustrated with this whole mercury issue in
fish (can't get any pacific wild salmon-out of season).
So, I had this question for you. Would there be any
harm in going through a course of oral chelation as a
preventitive, each year, so I could continue eating other
fish until salmon comes my way? If it is safe to do
preventitive chelation, wouldn't this be a decent way
around mercury toxicity from these other fish?

thanks,

dd

Thanks, DD, for bringing this up.

The only way I have found, for the mercury issue, is avoidance---which is becoming almost impossible since our short-sighted policies have "fouled our nest" for generations to come. Even if enlightened laws were passed immediately, this will get worse for at least 100 years. What, do you think, are the chances of even that happening in our lifetimes???

I have not been enamored with any kind of chelation as a solution for mercury but would be open to your enlightening us, on the BB, with any data you might have.

To my limited knowledge of oral chelation, It would be safe for you to do it continuously. I know that IV chelation is safe.

Hope this helps.

Walt

Thanks Walt,

I will post what I have found, but it isn't much. I have
been wanting to detox myself for heavy metals, as I
have been having some symptoms, and my health has
taken a dive recently. I am not a happy camper. I have
been avoiding fish, and I know my efa's are out of
balance. I will begin taking fish oil instead of flax, and I
have begun a round of probiotics and started on a
Candida program. I am also taking garlic, cayenne
and olive leaf.

My problems began with not getting enough sleep for
many months, stress, and havng my mercury fillings
replaced. Then these past few months, I have been
working constantly. (when it rains it pours). I think I
have metal toxicity. I have many of the symptoms. So, I
looked into Heavy metal detox, and oral chelation is one
of the therapies. Oddly enough, so is eating kelp.
Apparantly, kelp binds to heavy metals and helps to
flush them out. Ironic, because from what I have read,
so many of the sea vegtables are polluted as well. I am
so confused as to what to do, and that feeling of
helplessness at times is contributing to my stress.
Sometimes I just sit there and feel like giving up. But, I
don't. In my research in the past few days, in regards to
Candida, what is ironic is that "they" have found that
many people with candida are folks that carry a
defeated emotion inside of them. So, part of my
challenge is to not allow myself to go there, in my
frustration. I have to stay positive. Laughter is
supposed to play a crucial role in getting a handle on
candida. Yet, how do you become hopeful when you
see your choices deteriorating? I look at those people
that are ignorant of all of this stuff and they are happier
than I, and they seem to be doing fine, at least for now.
Igorance is bliss, and bliss creates good chemicals in
the body. Geez... I want to go back in time!

I am going to see how I do over the next month or so,
and if there is improvement with my health, I will then
begin some cleanses, and then start chelation to see if
there are more improvements. I am going to take it a
step at a time. And....I need to do more SR. I am trying
to see it the same way I did in college about violin
playing. Practice diligently for the final outcome, even
though there are many challenges along the way.

The one thing I know for sure, is that this is about
learning to truly love myself, and to somehow find
peace amongst this stuff that I can't change. I am
continually stressed by stupidity, and that isn't good for
me. Human beings will do what they do, until the end. I
really believe this now. They always have. So, I guess
the answer is to find peace admist the futility? Tough.

Thanks for your help. I hope you are doing well. From
reading your posts, you seem a LOT stronger. I am
happy for you, and relieved. I will try to post some info
over the next week or so about detox.

Thanks, DD.

Good thinking! I especially liked the simile about the violin practicing.

Namaste`

Walt
