…more specifically, recovering from the disassociation of autism–
We had a troll visit the mercury support group recently pretty much saying it was all crap.
One of the mothers of an autistic child spoke out with this wonderful letter:
Wonderful post and thank you for it. Varun is wasting his time here. The proof is in the pudding for us. Although I would be lying if I said I
didn’t dream of a complete “cure,” I never thought in terms of “I must
cure him.” That would be icing on the cake, of course, but when I chose to reject what the medical mainstream tried to sell me, “No hope. Dope him into oblivion so he can be controlled or institutionalize him,”
My goal was to improve his quality of life with the hope of independence. He has emerged from the abyss. I have witnessed more progress in the three years since we began AC, then in the ten years previous we did only diet and supplements.
To hear him excited about subjects such as architecture and meteorology and to waiver back and forth as to which he wishes to become,it is like Christmas morning every day here now. Is he “cured”? No, not yet. How far can he go? Only time will tell, but I have never been so full of hope since we began this journey.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and if I ever meet you in person one day, be prepared for a bear hug and a few tears of joy!
Just for notes–”Varun” was saying no one was seeing results and that we were a “cult”. Yep.
Okay, here are some of the things that happened to me, but are now healing or healed:
–I had such edema that my toenails turned black and fell off when I was moving –twice. The pressure underneath the nail from standing all day, bending, and constant movement proved too much for my mercury poisoned self, and caused the nail to die. It took a year the first time (2006) I moved, and the nail growing back was misshapen and very thin.
–Thinning hair that became straight and lost its shine. My hair is growing in thicker now, with the wavy hair I always had (much to my chagrin), and it now has its shine back.
–Fingernails that were blue and had lost the “moons”. Now they are healthier looking pink with some of the moons back.
–Skin rash that covered my forearms–itchy, angry red patches that are now almost gone with pink scars where the patches were.
–My eyesight had dimmed. It is now almost normal sight. However, I am still having to use glasses, where my eyesight had been 20/20 and 20/15.
–My short term memory was so bad at one point that I would literally forget something I had been told 30 seconds before. This was the time when I forgot my own children’s names–very frightening and upsetting.
–My hands were shaking at one point. I thought I had Parkinson’s, and didn’t tell anyone what was happening. If they would shake in public, I would hide them so no one would notice.
–My ADD was terrible. Your brain is this wonderful machine that makes connections from all over the place, and when you’re mercury-poisoned, your brain can’t connect all those places, so your thoughts are all over the place. This also made reading, something I love, damn near impossible because I would read a page, forget what was on it, read it again, and…well, rinse, repeat. Getting through a book was agony. Still dealing with this, however, but it is much diminished.
–My dyslexia was much worse. As with the ADD, it has improved, but still is affected.
–I was getting migraines after exercising. I am now able to exercise at least twice a week without problem. It’s still not where I want it to be, but much, much improved for which I am eternally grateful. This was something that depressed me to no end. I was becoming an invalid and I wanted to be out doing things.
–I started getting monthly migraines one year after the three amalgams were placed in 1994. Before this, I had migraine once per year (probably due to gluten intolerance).
–My teeth have improved. I’m not experiencing tooth pain and decay like before. Yay.
–My personality is returning. I lost my sense of humor to this horrible poison. I lost my love of life. I didn’t care about things I had previously cared about. I overreacted to things that I would have not normally done.
–All of my senses were affected by this stealth poison–hearing, sight, taste, touch, smell were all diminished and still are at times.
–I have an exaggerated startle response brought on by this poison. It is still there sometimes, but is diminishing as I chelate.
–Autistic symptoms. When it was really bad, I didn’t want to go anywhere–if I could, I would have stayed home all the time. Then I wanted to be around people, but I didn’t want to talk to them. Now I’m in a fuzzy place where those symptoms are easing up, but still pop up at the most inconvenient times.
–I had joint pain and muscle aches and muscle atrophy. All of those are diminishing as I chelate the poison out. It’s interesting that I get the muscle aches when I have a migraine, too.
–Lastly, I lost intellect. The reason I say this is I was doing dumb stuff that I knew better in my previous life. I also had tested in the 90th percentile when taking a test for MENSA. I tried again a few years ago, on their website, and got the “don’t call us, we’ll call you” schtick.
This list is not exhaustive, but gives a pretty good idea what mercury poisoned folk go through and it proves that low dose chelation can lead to recovery.
