And I’ve got to admit, I’m a bit scared.
Basically, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that anyone with metal fillings is probably suffering from mercury poisoning.
I was going to list the symptoms here, but there are far too many, so here’s a link: http://www.mercurypoisoned.com/symptoms.html
Luckily I only have 2 so I’m able to get them taken out in one sitting, but the procedure isn’t just as simple as that. Afterwards, your body will still contain levels of mercury which you need to get out of your system via chelation, which is the scary part.
See, you need to both pull the mercury out of the brain and nervous tissue AND mobilise it out of your system. If you just mobilise it, it will have no way of exiting your body and will just get dumped elsewhere, causing more problems.
This can take anywhere from 6 months to a couple of years, depending on how much mercury is in your system.
It’s also costing me an unpleasant chunk of money.
However, the possibility of the benefits, as well as the peace of mind that I’m safeguarding myself for the future is keeping me feeling positive. Hopefully it will all go fine and the research I’ve done will safeguard me against becoming seriously ill, but I am aware that there is a definite possibility that I could become ill to some degree for a while whilst I detox.
I shall keep you all informed!
So I’ve been playing around with my new guitar interface. If you’ve got stereo speakers you might enjoy this one.
Krysten Ritter. I find her insanely attractive.
Why do they always teach us that it’s easy and evil to do what we want and that we need disciple to restrain ourselves? It’s the hardest thing in the world - to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage. I mean, what we really want.
