Who Is Really Recovering?

My husband and I have started looking for real success stories of people who recovered from mercury poisoning. I am not talking about "feeling a little better". I am talking about people who are able to work again, live a normal life and don't have any complaints on a daily basis. We have found there aren't that many people out there who are recovering, especially those following Dr. Cutler protocol. I have begun to question whether or not this is doing anything for me other than make me sicker and sicker.

Obviously something is not right if people are not getting better. The Frequent Dose Chelation yahoo group is full of the exact same people I saw 2 years ago and everyone is still sick, complaining of this and that. Sure some people are posting to help others, but most of them are there because they are sick. If it is mercury causing the issues and chelating with low dose DMSA and ALA isn't working, then we need to reevaluate our chelation protocol. Doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results is the definition of insanity. haha If Cutler's protocol isn't working, then I'll abandon it completely and start doing something else. I have no issue with admitting I was wrong.

The only people we have both seen get healthy (not just "better" which is usually not much better at all) were those who went with oral DMPS or IV DMPS. This makes me really wonder.

I want to try oral DMPS and see how it goes. I have an appointment with one of the local doctors I used to see years ago. He's the one who did the DMPS challenge test, so at least he knows of DMPS. It's pricey and I have no idea how I'm going to afford this, but I have to try! DMSA is just not cutting it and I don't want to be here 3 years from now saying the same thing. Damnit I want to be healthy and never have to read any of these stupid health forums ever again.

Hi Dana

the way I see it is not that the Cutler protocol doesn't work, but because it is necessarily low dose, it takes a long time. Forget the 2 years' chelation he talks about - I think that is way too optimistic for seriously poisoned or very sensitive people. I think people feel ill for such a long time because every time they chelate, they are stirrng up the mercury again, which makes progress very difficult and very slow. Until you have removed a certain critical mass of mercury, you aren't going to feel better. This could take years, certainly in my case, as I am so sensitive to mobilised mercury. I feel better not chelating at all...

But I will get back to it soon. There are so many things to do at the same time - I am doing herbal cleanses for liver and kidneys, I have tried LDN, my hormones have just gone out of whack (I am 44, peri-menopausal I guesss), and a
we have all just had a stomach bug which has done a number on my gut, so there is always something to get balanced first before starting the arduous task of dragging mercury from the brain through the body. What's the saying? Oh yeah, it's a marathon, not a sprint :-(

take care

You and I have such similar issues. I too feel better if I don't chelate at all. It's just so awful and I had to take a benedryl last night because the hives started to pop up. (I am not on round! It's been at least 4 days now) Then this morning I felt like I was dying from the benedryl. I still have not recovered.

I just don't think this is working at all. I don't feel any better whatsoever from chelating. Nothing is different. The only reason I feel "better" is from hydrocortisone and because it is cool outside. Once spring comes around, I'll be back to being immobile.

I'd think by now you and I should be feeling some lasting improvements and we aren't. In fact we are just getting worse and worse...
