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.
