heavy metal poisoning

stevie
I have a lot of heavy metals in my body and have suspected that these may exacerbate the effects of EHS.  The more I think about it, the more likely it seems.

Has anyone had much experience with this?  For example, how long does it take to reduce your heavy metal count and what's the best way to do it?   Have any of you succeeded in reducing the heavy metals and, if so, did you notice a reduction in EHS?

I would love to understand this.
Thanks,
Stephanie

Yes, I treated my EHS as heavy metal poisoning, and improved from doing that.

Unfortunately, for many people, detoxing heavy metals is much easier said than done.  As the various detox organs and pathways that are supposed to help out with this are so compromised, that it's difficult to make any progress.  And in many cases, people make their own problems worse.

First thing to do is limit future exposure.  If you've got heavy metal dental work, then find a holistic / biological dentist and get them safely removed.  If you are eating foods known to contain lots of heavy metals (e.g. tuna fish), stop eating that.  Don't get any tattoos.  Etc.

For some people, there will need to be a step to get your body working more efficiently at detox.  Usually this would be via supplements.  If you are not healthy enough to have dental work done, then this may be the first step.

Then when your current exposures are reduced, you can start detoxing the stuff that has accumulated in your body.  This is done via a combination of "mobilizers" (things that move the metals into your bloodstream) and "binders" (things that remove the metals from your body).  There are all sorts of things that claim to do this, and some people may not be able to tolerate them all (and in extreme case, some people may not be able to tolerate any of them).  But there are supplements like DMPS, DMSA, EDTA, NDF, IMD, MetalSweep, OSR/NBMI, chlorella, cilantro, glutathione, zeolite, etc.  Or non-supplement solutions like saunas and ionic footbaths.   I personally think the "state of the art" in this is from a company called Quicksilver Scientific, but they are expensive and I doubt many local doctors know anything about there products & protocols.  A lot of people online follow the protocols from Andy Cutler, but I personally don't think Andy Cutler got much of this right, and was never really able to even detox himself before he died.

Jus off the top of your head Marc-    do you believe this - the heavy metal burden-  is a large component
of the extra sensitivity some of us have - in my case - to microwaves in particular?.
    This is something that bothers me a lot . Since these categories - viz
   suffering because of out and out ecological toxin, 
   and suffering because of compromise already existing in your body 
        are rather different, and have such different political and social consequences. 
    I am reassured (so to speak) by the fact that all life - almost- seems significantly 
   adversely affected by these radiations.  
       best wishes, Sylvan.

Yes, I do think that heavy metals are a big component for SOME people's sensitivities, but we also do see people improve by doing other things than heavy metal detox, so there are other solutions that work for some people.  Which means to me that maybe they would not have improved if all they did was a heavy metal detox, because they have some different issue going on.
