O.K. I've posted about my sudden anxiety/depression attacks that come suddenly and leave in the same manner. I had thought that this was a result of brain mercury. Someone started posting the effects of mercury in the liver causing emotional issues and my little theory got blown way out to sea
. I posted the following and received such a good reply that I wanted to share it on this board :
Just wondering if it was better to do a castor oil pack on or off
DMSA/ALA round and why. Also can someone explain to me why mercury in
the liver could be contributing to anxiety/emotional issues rather than
mercury in the brain?
Mercury in the liver blocks detox pathways. These pathways should
normally lead to a smooth and symptom-free detox of ordinary,
everyday toxins (waste products in the body, hormones, caffeine,
OTC and rx drugs, chemicals in the air and water, etc). When
they are blocked, many symptoms can occur due to toxins not
being broken down normally - some of these symptoms can be
Imagine what a eight cups of coffee would feel like and suppose you
had that reaction to one cup... That's a blocked liver pathway
leading to emotional symptoms.
Another example is PMS - one cause of this is liver detox problems
that lead to hormonal imbalances and emotional symptoms.
O.K. me again.
I'm going to try one of these castor oil packs because the folks were saying that it does not act as a chelator, but as a detoxifier to the liver. The original poster was saying that she was having anxiety issues while off round and after an hour with the pack her anxiety was gone. It will be cheap and natural so I'll give it a try. I just have to by some castor oil and find some flannel to soak it in. I'll probably just cut up some of DH flannel boxers
to save money - isn't he going to love me when he gets back in town
