I recently performed a 'Toxic Elements Clearance Profile Urine Test' whilst under the care of a nutritional therapy practitioner. It revealed my body has stored higher than recommended levels of lead, mercury, bismuth and gadolinium. The level of gadolinium could be explained, as this substance was injected into my hips prior to an MRI scan, in an attempt to understand the joint pains I was experiencing. The course of treatment to detoxify the body was the combination of a supplement named chlorella, and to take very hot baths using epsom salts. I had to gradually build up the chlorella dosage, as even a very small quantity caused my body to experience a large detoxification reaction. After an intense ten day period with the worst symptoms then behind me, I was able to increase the dosage to a reasonable level. After a month taking chlorella, I began to notice an improvement of my immune reaction symptoms, hence researched into its other known benefits. Along with detoxification, I found chlorella has substantial immune system balancing properties. My practitioner used her contacts in an attempt to understand these effects and to provide further possible treatments. This will be expanded upon another time, as the research unveiled more understanding to the underlying ME/CFS complications.
The 'Breakspear' has performed a 'DNA Adducts Blood Test' that also revealed I have a heavy metal toxicity, this time attached to a gene. Epsom salts baths were again recommended, along with a niacin supplement to activate an immune response prior to each detoxification session. I immediately noticed great benefit from this which got me thinking. If this immune reaction assists the detoxification process, would I not get an improved response from a hotter temperature than a bath. My idea was to join a health centre to use such facilities as the sauna and steam room. As I am obviously unable to use the majority of the facilities, I requested a special compensatory rate. The manager accepted this, which was extremely pleasing, as long a I provided a letter from my GP. This activity is not only advantageous to my health but could begin to provide me with some independence. At present a ten minute sauna, although made me feel incredible immediately afterwards, quickly brought on fatigue, foggy brain and sore glands all caused by the immune response, and hence I was unable to drive myself home. I believe this reaction is beneficial if monitored closely to ensure my health does not decline. The experience was a learning curve and an eye opener as I returned to my previous level of health by the second morning after the activity. I hope to steadily increase the time spent in the sauna once the symptoms reduce, and eventually be well enough to drive myself, providing the start to the independence I seriously miss.
