Today, I added supplements I consider safe, regardless of toxicity/removal question: a trace mineral complex and a calcium-magnesium to replace the one I was using which I think was having a constipating effect. There are a variety of ways to take ca-mg so finding the right one is important, as too much calcium can cause kidney stones and calcification, for example. I spoke with a pharmacist to choose the best one for me. I need the minerals now because I stopped the multivitamin/mineral complex I was using for a long time, as when I researched each ingredient I found things I'm allergic to (milk and citrus). Previously I didn't know what was in it, just trusted the doctor to give me what was best without verifying it -that is a mistake.
I am using alternative vitamins, holding off on chelators (NAC, r-alpha-lipoic acid) for now, til I learn more about the question of whether chelating is safe while amalgams are still in, and to find out what is causing insomnia this week. Is it a new supplement, or is it that chelators are bringing mercury into circulation and the mercury is doing it? When I lost a large amount of weight therefore possibly got a bolus of mercury released from storage, in 1988, very severe insomnia for two years was horrible and dangerous to physical and mental health, will not take a chance on that.
Staying on the safe side.
I've been adding too many new elements at the same time, need to just do one at a time and wait a few days to see how I react. Patience! Make haste slowly. Fortunately, info is easy to access on internet. Unfortunately, myriad pages to wade through and many obviously profit-oriented ones and pseudo-science that requires close scrutiny.
Here is why it is serious: when the dentist who invented some of these tests and procedures had his licence revoked, part of the reason was: When faced with these serious diseases, it is no wonder patients are willing to grasp at any hope of improvement and turn to [him] for miraculous improvements he promises. The debilitating nature of diseases for which [he] offers treatment and desperate straits of a number of his patients, combined with a lack of any scientific basis for treatments he offers, make [his] conduct particularly egregious. [He] has taken advantage of the hope of his patients for an easy fix to medical problems and used this to develop a lucrative business for himself.
... diagnostic techniques and treatments offered are scientifically unsupported, without clinical justification, and outside the practice of dentistry. . .
. . . protocols he developed thus provide care which does not meet generally accepted standards of dental practice and, in many cases, is grossly negligent. . .
all patients suffered financially, some also physically or emotionally . . .
encouraging D.A. to believe in her son's wish that she sell her wheelchair, is so out of proportion to any benefit which could be anticipated that it is cruel.
