Most of you probably don't even know me. I've been absent for such a long time. I just went to the yahoo pediatric gastroparesis group to post Sierra's healing from GP. It has been over a year and a half since her last mercury treatment. I realized I never posted the mercury removal that worked for her on chelating mamas - sorry!
Well, she did fine on the NCD, but I found it only removed serum mercury. The urine toxic metal profiles we did convinced me that it doesn't touch cellular toxic metals. When we added the transdermal ALA she went downhill. Mobilizing the mercury exacerbated her symptoms so that she just stayed on the couch saying, "owie belly". It was pitiful. I was truly hopeless at that point. I had found what I believed to be the cause of her gastroparesis, I had the porphyrin test proving she was mercury toxic, and I had no way to remove the mercury that she could tolerate.
Then we were led to Charles
. He practices NAET (which we had done before) and augments it with acupuncture (which we had done MANY times before). Cool thing was that he used me as a surrogate. He only touched Sierra when giving her hugs. He did the testing through me and I took all the needles for her. We just had to have skin-to-skin contact during the testing and treatment.
Well, we went in for the first appt. and he was convinced off the bat that her issue was food allergies because of her stomach pain and vomiting at least 3 times per day. He tested EVERY food allergen he could think of and she never went weak. He finally believed me and tested mercury. He did a mercury treatment that day. I left thinking how ridiculous it was to think mercury could be removed from the body energetically after all I had read on chelation. I thought I had yet again wasted money. I was wrong.
Her pain improved with that first treatment. We continued treatments 3 times per week. After a couple months she went from a diet of raw yoghurt as 70% of her diet with one grain and meat per day to whatever organic whole food she wanted. Once he got enough mercury out her candida symptoms that she had for years vanished despite eating bananas and honey. She couldn't have any fruit prior to this.
We did a total of 9 months of treatment for mercury, inorganic mercury, and thimerosal. A year ago we had a little glitch, but realized I had started her on a new mag supplement from the sea. Ended up this had a small amount of mercury in it which was causing the symptoms to come back. Stopped this supplement, did one mercury treatment, and she was fine again. She is extremely sensitive to mercury.
So, now you have yet another (very expensive) way to remove mercury
I finished chelating in the fall of 2007. I began with the Cutler protocol using DMSA/ALA. After about a year? I switched to NCD/ALA keeping the ALA on Cutler schedule and dosing. This was much easier on my body and I had no problems switching to NCD except that it was more expensive
