RECOVERING FROM MERCURY POISONING, HEAVY METALS & LYME by Restoring the Gut Lining for Optimal Health


Did you know that the workings of your gut, the gastrointestinal system is directly related to other systems of your body including the activity of brain chemicals, mood and nutrient absorption. . When I was first diagnosed with Dystonia in 2007, even my primary care physician had no idea what my condition was. It took him  about ten minutes to go through his physicians manual to come up with the diagnosis. From that day on, and  going from  doctor to doctor to neurologist to chiropractor to even environmental MDs, it took me  12 years to come to the root issue of my Dystonia mystery. Most frustrating is the fact that none of the medical professional who examined me even  suggested I was suffering from leaky- gut from my anti-biotic treatments.

Most Dystonia medical websites cite a dysfunction of the basal ganglia as the root cause of the  nd my question was always, so what is causing the basal ganglia area to misfire and cause uncontrollable movements?  Very little information is given and Dystonia is labelled an incurable condition.  I have seen far too many  posts from Dystonia and Lyme Disease sufferers whose practitioners have given few options for recovery because so little seems to be known. But after finding good information and amazing healing testimonies from individuals who have been treated by natural protocols by natural practitioners, about gut health and pro-biotics, I declare there is hope!

Recently,  I made an amazing discovery compelling me to forge into  a more focused and informed healing protocol addressing my gut issue. Despite, my fatigue, brain=fog and decreased motivation, I was even more determined to take total control of my health.  My 12 plus year  relentless pursuit hasn’t waned to find answers to my ever-mysterious and tormenting PLatysma-TMJ Dystonia sympto  ms. I left no stone unturned and each week, I devoted many hours to research.

My use of Glutiathione, coupled with Chlorella and organic Cilantro was not working and neither was were all the special supplements Mark was buying me.  The quality of my sleep was diminishing. I was waking up three or 4 times during the night with vicious mouth spasms.  I was getting very alarmed also that the quality of my hair was poor and it wasn’t growing in about a year.  I was so sensitive to EMF That I couldn’t stand even an hour on the computer.  The car’s engine power was also excruciating, making the nerves of my neck and throat muscles pull so hard, I could barely breath. It was getting crazy and living was getting to be overwhelming and miserable.

About  three months ago, I noticed waking up several more times during the night with feeling my left arm and hand having no circulation, This really alarmed me. I also noticed the skin on my two elbows so dry and tough. I have never had severely dry elbows before and figured it might have something to do with being dehydrated, (although I often drank 8 or more glasses of mineral water a day.   Something was causing my mind, bod, spirit and energy wane and I knew if I didn’t stop this degenerating process soon, I would not be able to live a fulfilling life.  The more I’d researched  the effects of Mercury and heavy metals, the more I deduced that all my issues were related to this toxic substance  blocking the absorption of my nutrients, minerals and the brain chemicals-reflexes.  Now I understood why Dr Dietrich ‘s detoxifying program wasn’t working for me, because first I had to address my damaged gut lining.

May 31, I GOOGLED, “The effects of mercury on the Myelin sheath”. (I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of this before as I’d found many health-medical sites referring to Myelin sheath damage. I came upon a link from a practitioner who told a lengthy story of her Mercury Poisoning disaster. I almost broke down in tears as she went through exactly what I was going through.

Connie Fox is a licensed, certified Holistic health practitioner specializing in Mercury and heavy metal detoxification. I believe she is a gift to the medical world and I believe her story saved my life! She shares her insight and trial and error experiences proving that the cause of Mercury toxicity is a leaky gut and before any mercury removal can happen, the gut ling needs to be restored! Here is the missing puzzle piece of my deteriorating health. I was ecstatic upon finding this discovery and later researched some other wonderful and Youtube practitioners who expound on Disbiosis, (Leaky Gut Syndrome). If you are suffering from, EMF sensitivity, brain fog, Digestive issues I would prepare to connect with a certified practitioner to help you with the Mercury Detoxification problem. This may be the cause of your Dystonia, (or neurological disorder) as it was mine!

Getting to the Root, Heal the Gut, Heal Your Life:

Christina Orrecchio, a clinical-holistic nutritionist has given us an amazingly comprehensive and holistic strategy for gut-healing. I’d never heard of or even considered  Disbiosis as being the cut to my health issues.  I remembered that during my Lyme Tenure,  I suffered from a long and vicious case of  Candida, (a condition of yeast proliferation from long anti-biotic use. MY doctors Rosephin and Amoxicilin prescriptions killed all my good probiotics. He never told me to take probiotics while on my Lyme  Treatments.  Here was the catalyst to my  chronic  battles with respiratory ailments whcih were catastrophic for a professional singer-performer. It was an absolutely staggering challenge to keep employment, let alone do anything of significance.  The two years I battled Candida were one of the most difficult seasons of my life.  Were it not for an amazing Chiropractor who practiced natural healing, I would probably not be alive today.

Now that you know about Gut health and how it affects your body,  you can move forward addressing your leaky gut. Christa is so comprehensive in her explanation of Gut Disbiosis. and you’ll be amazed at all the things you’ve doing wrong and eating wrong  these years!  I am grateful for the informative natural practitioners who have shared this new knowledge with us on YouTube.  I’ve never  considered Disbiosis to be a cause of my Platysma-TMJ Dystonia, but understand  how this affects the central nervous system and the neurotransmitters of the brain.

The systemic inflammation in my body from my leaky gut was making me steadily more and more sensitive to atmosphere iv factors, dampness, low-barometric pressure during rain and even humidity. My  neck and jaw joints, ached and became super inflamed.  It was getting to be miserable living  for my good days lessened and I was  able to do less and less. My creativity and motivation were also affected. I knew something was just not right and I knew I had better get researching again and find the answer o this miserable mystery. It was getting harder and harder to stay positive as I left no stone unturned in seeking answers for my diminishing energy.

 

I hope the following links help you to understand your gut and its health and also to apply detoxifying- cleansing strategies  and even exercises and physical rehabilitation  for optimal health. I shared Dr Mandel’s  cervical and Occipital exercises in my  last Dystonia blog.. I highly suggest you also research the benefits of activated charcoal and clay: Make sure to work with your practitioner before applying any new health protocol.  Dr Richard Scultze has some amazing detox products for the kidney’s and liver. Mark and I have used his products and they are superior.

GROWING in EXCELLENCE


 

serenity prayer

I was pondering the rising incidence of violence, senseless murder, rioting and the present tendency to focus on negativity and hopelessness. It really troubles me that in spite of all our modern technology,  endless supply and choices of supplies, merchandise, food and modern conveniences, many of us Americans are still a miserable and unsatisfied bunch.  There are exceptions of course and we all do know people who greatly and positively influence their circle or community.

As a journalist, songwriter , artists and mentor, I take no greater delight than in seeing others flower and produce beautiful fruit! Many of us artists can be overly sensitive and prone to self-pity when hit by crushing trials or challenges, (like the deaths of loved ones and pets, loss of a job-career  or a catastrophic illness)  which greatly curtails and derails the path of our lives. I understand all these detours very well, having had  more than my share of difficult  seasons.  For many of us,  difficulties have stunted and left  us spinning our  wheels in neutral indefinitely, but for others,  we stay on course, focused on  our (and others) upward momentum of excellence.

As I thought about the futility, (and the sad waste of human intelligence)  of traversing the lower road of emotional stagnancy, bitterness and toxicity, I deem this blog to be of great necessity for many. I believe cultivating an excellent mindset is of great benefit to the world.. This article will be a but shorter than my usual blog posts  what award-winning anther, Travis Bradvbury’s article says about our brain-potential , 18 Signs You Have High Emotional Intelligence is so comprehensive an enlightening! Check out his article:

18 Signs You Have High Emotional Intelligence

I’m presently going through storms of very difficult relationship issues following the passing of my mother and the estrangement of a cherished  near-relative and it again causes me to soul-search ways that I can navigate and grow from this heartbreak of loss, disappointment and rejection. I want to say that I am confident that my faith in God and His kindness to me causes me to use my experiences and victories over depression to help others to become excellent and fruitful people and  encourage them to mentor others who have trouble navigating difficult relationships and  traumatic life events!. I’d applied one of my favorite Bible scriptures to my lifestyle, remembering to get out of myself and not focus on my selfish ambition or empty pride and to humble myself , considering others more important than myself. Phil 2 3&4 We all need to try to not focus  on our own interests all the time,  but to show interest in the interests of others. This is not easy to do for most of us, but is a skill and edifying trait which can be cultivated.

We would expects leaders or religious mentors to have the gift of edifying and encouragement , but this is not always the case. Many are  stressed-out and focused on their own endeavors. and some are even narcissistic.  I would just like the end this article with saying that mentoring, encouraging and building up broken people has been the most precious and gratifying  job I could be privileged to have! From my very early days in the 1980’s , as a young woman immersed in nursing home ministry , to prison ministry, to serving battered and dislocated women with Love in the name of Christ non-profit, to presently mentoring Lyme Disease and Dystonia sufferers, there is no greater love or joy than building up others. Empowering others strengthens families, our communities and our nation.

We must try to address the issues of suicide, mental illness, family estrangement and anarchy by prayer, unified outreach and especially asking God His wisdom to wrong the rights of this world. We will not see positive change in our families, communities and nation if we continue to relentlessly chase our own dreams with out  any interest or thought to intervene and help others when and if we can. I hope  Travis’s insightful article prompts you to a new level of high emotional intelligence and I know if more of us embrace some of the attributes, we will so enhance and build upon positively the atmosphere of our world!

THE DOOR


Jesus at the door

       We buried my mother, Helga, this past Saturday at Ely Funeral home, Neptune, NJ.  She passed away at her abode, Concord   Rehabilitation center, June 25, 2019 from over four years of Dementia symptoms  It became harder and harder to see my mother so diminish each time my husband, Mark and I visited her. Tears would start to well in my eyes and I had stop and take a deep breath, aching Holy Spirit to strengthen me. My anointed Taylor guitar in hand and Father’s ministering angels surrounding  us in her room, I started to sing beloved healing hymns of faith.  As I leaned heavily on Jesus, I felt peace come over me and started to prophecy in song about mom’s deliverance, healing and  emancipation from the foreboding WWII and Nazi memories of Germany. For too long those ghosts smothered my mother and Mark and I were not about to let her go into eternity without Christ’s covering.

It was  a devastating burden to to see  vicious and merciless Dementia rob my mother of her mind and body. When I received the call from my mother’s social worker and I shared the news with my closest intercessor sisters , I immediately felt strengthened as they spoke courage, strength and peace over my three sisters and I.

     Mom’s burial was a very private affair with only my 2 sisters, my aunt, cousin, niece and a handful of long-time family friends.         

THE DOOR        

Our gathering here today is not only to pay last respects and bid farewell to my mother, Helga Stenzil Ferrer, but also to give credence and glory to Almighty God for the opportunity to enter the door of eternal life and salvation in Christ Yashuah.  I wish to share with you the channels, starting from my girlhood to my mother’s passing, and how it can affect your life today and your own eternal destiny.

I discovered as a teenager that I was a non‑conformist. Never one to embrace legalistic tradition and religion, my spiritual probing always brought me to the edges of radical faith. A deeply introspective and sensitive girl, I found it hard to connect with both of my parents. I kept a diary where I was able to explore my thoughts without condemnation and ponder what my life would be if my family lived peacefully and lovingly with each other.

The day after mom’s death, a dam of countless sorrowful and unresolved events spewed forth, in particular the senseless way both my father and mother died. I’m sure some of you may have felt the weight upon the loss of a cherished loved one. You found yourself suddenly thrown into the reality of burial and funeral details. Mark and I have had our share of funerals and the burying of beloved pets. The recent loss of our beloved Tabby, Bikini drew me directly into God’s perspective, a divine revelation about the brevity of life. From this revelation came my blog, Teach Us to Number Our Days, Moses Psalm 90. How accurately Moses portrayed the brevity of our lives as he cried to God for wisdom to live life intimately with God.

And so, as I prepare for my Mother’s farewell and grieve for what could have been, God impresses me to meditate on John 10:9.  Jesus said “I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and go in and out and find pasture”.

We’ve all heard about stories of girls and women caught in terrible events and left vulnerable and exposed. My mother, my sisters and I, (as well as innumerable girls and young women worldwide) bear the scars of rejection, abandonment and abuse‑neglect.  I’ve encountered many women in crisis during my mentoring tenure at Love Inc ,Christian non-profit ministry and understand their feelings of fear, isolation and hopelessness. Without a safe haven, and stability, there is no way to survive and move forward.  There were no doors of safety open for these victims. Statistics rise regarding suicides, nervous breakdowns domestic abuse and/or murder by husband. I am one of the blessed ones who had the sense to use the shreds of sense I had left, (after so many traumatic events) to make the wisest choice I could ever make …to ask for and enter Jesus door!

If only my mother Helga had the joy and relief to enter Jesus’ door. Difficulties abounded for her to the very end, but Mark and I are humbled and grateful to have the privilege of ministering to her through intercession and remission of her sins. We trusted that Father God, in His mercy would redeem her soul. We cried, asking Father to deploy battalions off warring and ministry angels to shatter the demonic bondage that threatened to keep her from eternal life in heaven. We believe Father heard our earnest supplication, for our battle for our loved ones souls is not tangible and earthly, but a spiritual battle. Eph 6:12

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life” and there is no way we can ever enter heaven without his shed blood as our redemption. Mark and I know that we (and all persons) ,will give an account of our words and deeds during our lives. At the Bema (judgement) seat, Christ will be our judge. At the White Throne judgement, those who refused to accept and live for Christ will be judged and cast into hell for eternity.

Some may protest. “I’ve never killed anyone or robbed a bank”. But I tell you, none can enter Christ’s door, neither by the Catholic sacraments of baptism, confession or the Eucharist. You cannot enter His door through your good works, charitable donations and the sign of the cross, nor attending Bible studies or even reading the Bible.  Our very words and actions bear witness to whether we bear good fruits or evil fruits. Life and death is in the power of our tongues and our words set the atmosphere of our lives   and even affects those near and distant! Rest assured, we will give an account, 2 Cor 5:10

Galatians 5:22 clearly lists the beautiful and gracious fruits of the spirit, love joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self‑control. And of cruse, Galatians 5:19 describes the bad as sexual immorality, impurity, debauchery, idolatry, witchcraft,, hared, discord, jealousy,, fits of range, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy and drunkenness. And let us not forget Jesus commandment of forgiveness in the Our Father prayer. The sin of unforgiveness opens the demonic door to strongholds of resentment and bitterness which has destroyed many marriages and families. Be of good cheer, for the nitty‑gritty sins and strongholds of our souls and family bloodlines have already been cleansed when we appropriate Christ’s, blood to our lives and families. Christ is the all‑sufficient sacrifice for our lives, health and wellness.

Jesus Christ, Yashuah HaMashiach, is the only way the truth and the life. He is also the resurrections, the bread and the door. If curses, bad fortune and sorrow has been a part of your life, bring them to the cross and ask Christ into your life to cleanse and redeem you from your past and your families’ tainted bloodlines. That door to  supernatural healing and peace is available right now today, if you ask Him!
