It's been a while since I've posted because I've been investigating a detox for Sierra, seeing what results I got, and revamping my chelation.
I started digging hard core into a natural detox that the spectrum community is eating up and having marvelous advances with. I don't trust physicians or anyone who is selling the product so after doing my normal reading I jumped into 8000 posts by parents of autistic children who had been using the product since it came on the market about a year ago. I didn't surface for weeks.
Well, Sierra has gastroparesis (partially paralyzed stomach) so she vomits food that is undigested 8 hours after she has consumed it. This past spring 24hour raw milk yoghurt would come up still nice and thick after 4 hours. I'd been seeing alternative practicioners all along. Name a crazy alternative therapy and we've tried it. Name a diet and we've tried it. I always felt that if I could find the cause of the gastroparesis (more than not vagus nerve damage - vax, maternal mercury, physical injury during traumatic birth?) I felt that it could be treated and healed. The docs just wanted to give her drugs to treat the symptoms. A NUCCA chiro helped somewhat for about 5 months and then her progress started to plateau. Then we took her to a DO for cranial osteopathy as that helps with birth trauma and did see evidence that impinged cranial nerves were having pressure on them released - pretty amazing actually, but no gi improvements .
Knowing that I'm mercury toxic has always made me question her toxicity, but I had no way to measure it. Her hair grows so slowly that I knew her hair test was not reliable. With her stomach not working and her being so malnourished that her joints crack, she has the hair of a child half her age, and she has a deep crevice running the length of her toenails that started a year ago along with the joint cracking I could never have anyone chelate her safely.
I had to find a way to detox her gently and bypass the stomach. I tried epsom salt baths and some traditional chinese medicine detox foot patches.I started with the Body Pure, then the Takara version, and finally the Kinotakara which are supposed to have the strongest negative ion pull. She had no problems with the first two, but a week after starting the Kinotakara she began to stutter. She lost language at 12 mo, but never had stuttering problems. I blew this off at first, but then realized that my own mercury toxicity started to present itself 8 years ago with migraines/ vision changes right after moving from sea level to mile high (gain of 5000 ft) and progressed over the course of a year to stuttering, mixing the order of words, and difficutly with word finding. I guessed that the stronger patches were moving the mercury, but not fully extracting it thus increasing mercury plasma levels and causing speaking issues. I stopped the patches. By the time I started the Natural Cellular Defense (which I doubted for months before trying) three weeks later she was stuttering 10 times on each of the first two words of each sentence and would often say "nevermind" instead of finishing her
sentence. After the second day of NCD the stuttering was decreased by 50%. After a week the stuttering was gone not to return! I believe it was the Takarasite where I saw the chart with negative ion values for the various
brands of foot patches. Body Pure was 8, Takara 3, and Kinotakara was
1300. The patches went from a scant amount of tan to black when
switching from the Takara to Kinotakara. After a couple weeks of NCD we were seeing decreased vomiting, stools had gone from yellow (they had always been yellow) to green and brown with a new hideous smell, emptying time of her stomach for her raw yoghurt had gone downto 90 minutes which was very significant in suggesting that her gastroparesis was due to some form of toxicity or virus that the NCD was removing, she grew 1 1/2 inches (had only grown 1 1/2 inches in the last 6 months) , and she was more happy and outgoing. I gave her tomato in some cooked chili and some mushroom soup all in one week because she was doing so well. She regressed with massive yeast for three weeks and is starting to come back around after intense EVCO and AMLA.
I did a DDI urine test during all this and got eleveated mercury levels coming off. I had a phone consult with a toxicologist today. She was a GP and geneticist who treated all her pateints with drugs when she first joined the practice, but saw that they never got better. She then begun doing research on her own and got further training as a toxicologist. She began to detox her patients (with traditional chelators and then switched to NCD years later after doing her own research and trials on the product and finding it superior) after running tox tests and gave nutritional support. Almost all her patients began to heal so that is what she does for her patients now and is overseeing a research and treatment facility in Belize because she is so sick of the FDA. She was our 20th practicioner to consult for Sierra
. She is the one I've been waiting for. She absolutely believes in maternal toxins being passed to the fetus and was able to easily explain EVERYTHING going on with Sierra and the changes she'd had on the NCD by explaining all of mercury's toxic effects. She validated everything I'd suspected that made the other practicioners think I was nuts. She also told me that mercury does cause gastroparesis. The consult ended up being almost an hour and only cost $45. I
Interestingly, I just got into a discussion yesterday on the Autism NCD group about maternal toxicity passing to the child in utero. One mother wrote that she believed this becuase she had her son's hair from when he was 3 mo old (lots of hair) and had it tested for metals. I don't think he had not received any vax at that point. He got his vax a little bit later and down the road became autistic. She remembered the old hair and ran it out of curiosity. Came back very high for mercury.
Also, it had been bugging me that I know so many mamas who have an oldest child who has the most medical issues, second with some, and a third child that is the healthiest. According to Prices's N&PD the oldest should be the most robust and healthy with each child being less so as the vitamin and mineral stores are used up and not well replenished. Then I realized that the world he researched in was mostly free of toxins compared to our present environment and people. Toxins trump nutrition because heavy metals displace minerals causing cell and body functions to be affected. So, if the oldest received the bulk of nutritional stores, but also the bulk of the toxins that have resided in a woman for 25-35 years it makes sense why that one would be the sickest. If the mama has enough toxins then her nutritional status is going to be in the crapper anyway. I've read before that a fetus absorbs mercury in the blood at a rate of 6 times what an adult would. At www.iaomt.com
there is a video on mercury vapor release that has a short blip about the fetus absorbing mercury from the mother. One of the mothers on the autism list said that her DAN doctor told her that the best way for a mother to detox was to have a baby. I believe all this because I keep running into more and more as I walk down this road. I sent a fecal toxicity panel to DDI about a year ago for both myself and my daughter just to satisfy curiosity. Neither of us had chelated. We were both taking hydrated bentonite clay (myself 1 TBSP and she was taking 1/2 tsp.) first thing everyday in the morning. I had my 7 amalgams removed starting 6 months before the fecal test and completing the removal 2 months before the test. I should probably still have had a higher mercury level at that point due to the
increased exposure from removal despite using IAOMT protocol. Sierra was 2 yo at the time and had received all vaccines up through 6 months. DDI tested for Mercury, antinomy, arsenic, beryllium, bismuth, cadmium, copper, lead, nickel, platinum thallium, tungsten, and uranium. We were both positive for EVERY toxic element except for platinum! I had AT LEAST a 50% increase over her in every element except mercury. She had a 33% increase over my level in mercury. Along with the other information I had read that sealed the lid for me on the fact that a fetus has a higher affinity for mercury than other toxins.
So now she is on high dose NCD. I kept doing DMSA/ALA for a while, but after seeing her improvements and listening to a few audios by the doctor I consulted with I switched to ALA/NCD and have not had any problems. I had been on the DMSA 9 months when I switched to NCD. I read about so many mamas bending over backwards in their lives to try to heal their own guts and their childrens. I wonder how many people have to detox the metals before they can heal. Hmmmm....
How is everyone else doing?
