Re:

I think the mercury tri-test is great if you are trying to determine what your source of elevated mercury is.... ie , is it coming from fish or from fillings For me, mercury is not the big issue, while lead and cadmium are both very high. This leads me to believe that the tri-test could be delayed ...

Re: Heavy Metals testing

Hi Anna, could you clarify whether you mean not doing challenge testing instead of Quicksilver or instead of no testing at all, which might lead to not treating metal overload at all? In other words, is their something challenge testing does right that is informative in a way that Quicksilver isn’t...

Re: Heavy Metals testing

I take 500 mg of DMSA 3X/day for 3 days, then take 11 days off. Will repeat this cycle for 25 cycles. I do not notice feeling any different on the days I take DMSA. Nor do I notice any difference in how I feel now that I am, at least hypothetically, getting rid of metals. (Have finished 8 rounds). ...

Re: Heavy Metals testing

Dr. Bredesen says that people improve on his protocol even if they don't successfully fix all the holes in their roof. Quite possibly, from testing method > interpretation > protocol there's a lot of room for fudge factors in the context of comprehensive changes. Agreed! I believe that for many peo...

Re: Heavy Metals testing

My conclusion for now is that probably everyone has some metals to chelate, and maybe rather than worrry about whether the tests are up to snuff or not and spenilding money on them, it’s better to just adopt a slow detox/chelation lifestyle. What percentage of testers are clean of all metal toxicit...

Re: Anxiety!

Hello Wondering. I too am post-menopausal and struggle with anxiety and difficulty staying sleep and have tried quite a few things over the years, including SSRI's (not a good match for me) and trazodone (works great for sleep but dried my mouth out too much, and I think it might be a little bit ant...

Re: Super Immunity in General?

Being 4/4 definitely has NOT provided me with super immunity. In fact, I sometimes wonder if it is the opposite -- more of a vulnerability gene. Although I was not a particularly sickly child, I've had far more than my share of immune system failures as an adult, including my current battle with rea...

Re: Heavy Metals testing

My FM doc wants me to do a Doctor's Data provoked heavy metal test, so I'm reviving this thread with some questions and concerns that I did not see covered: 1. I'm concerned that test results could be misleading. How accurate and meaningful is provoked testing? Has anyone complemented the provoked t...

Re: Is ApoE4 Neanderthal?

This is all quite fascinating -- and confusing! I think I need a summary in plain English. :? I did some digging and couldn't find any evidence that Neanderthal DNA is over-represented in APOE4 carriers. If there is a connection, it could simply be Northern European ancestry. But while on the topic ...
