So…you all might recall I blogged about the vulnerability of the Irish to heavy metal poisoning due to a genetic factor…
…my other sister dropped a bombshell last week at the funeral dinner–she had her daughter tested because of health issues…and….drum roll please….she has the double gene responsible for the inability to detox heavy metals.
I knew it….but I couldn’t convince my siblings that because we were Irish, we were more susceptible.
They had a hard time believing that my stupid amalgams had made me so ill. My sis was a dental hygienist in another life, so she was brainwashed into believing that stuff was perfectly safe. She was exposed to it eight hours a day, five days a week. I won’t go into her health issues, but there’s plenty to point towards mercury poisoning.
And yet, it’s still hard for her to wrap her brain around–because she just noticed the red spots on my arms–that have been there for over ten years–probably closer to fifteen years. She thinks that’s a sign of allergies. Yes and no. Allergies are worse with mercury poisoning and many on the support group have some sort of skin issue like mine.
I explained to my sister (she lives out of state, so I don’t get to see her that often), that my red spots got much worse when I worked at the state mental hospital that was located near a cement plant that burns hazardous waste. I found out a couple years ago that it was spewing mercury into the air. This just clicked for me that my red spots got worse when I worked there, and then started to disappear when I moved out of town after losing my house. The thing is–when I chelate, the red spots itch like crazy and become an angry red. And when they do go away, there is a pink scar left on my forearm.
I’ve passed another milestone that indicates I am progressing, however slowly–my long time readers might recall I mentioned warts on my thumb and middle finger. The warts on my thumb began to disappear a year or two into chelation. The middle finger, however, was still there. Until now.
It was getting itchy and red during chelation, but still remained until this week–where the body finally dealt with it and tada! I no longer have the wart. Incredible how the body is such a miracle. I knew that viruses cause warts, so I was waiting for the immune system to take care of it. Doctors, of course, want to just remove the warts without thinking about why the wart is there and if there is something gone wrong with the immune system…?
So…yeah…a little progress, but a giant leap as far as I’m concerned.
And knowing that I was right all along about the Irish genetics is just wonderful. Validated.
Now if they’ll only listen to me about Dr. Cutler’s protocol and start chelation before things get really bad…
…and following a grain free organic diet…but yeah, that’s probably not going to happen–lots of resistance, but I can hope, can’t I?
