here is the short version, I don't have time for the long version tonite:
long history of digestive issues
gas, malabsorption, underweight, pathogens, gut flora all messed up--pathogens, no good flora high candida, fatigue, structural issues--joints, anxiety, body feels like I am falling apart, immune issues, very hard to keep water in me.
I am 46, I have had osteoporosis for 6-7 years, I am 5'10 and weigh 140lbs or less. I take 15mg of hydrocortisone and 60mg of armour thyroid, my energy is low, i don't recover from exercise well or heal tissues well, I eat meat and some veggies
grains don't work, fruit and sugars don't work, dairy doesn't work.
I am tight tight tight. don't really stretch well at all.....meaning the muscle don't stretch.
Taking calcium makes me rigid, taking more than 100mg of mag a day give me D
Things got bad in my early twenties.
Things got really bad within 6months of getting my Amalgams out, which was 9 year ago. food allergies dramatically increased.
I got on the SCD diet and I didn't control the D until I figured out that meat and winter squash worked and then added some more veggies.
worked with the Cutler protocol for 4-5 years with DMSA and ALA chelation. Seemed like some progress but not huge.
I spend I lot of my time not feeling very good and managing my symptoms and diet.
I have worked with a lot of different naturopaths and docs and diets, etc.
Last year I did some pretty powerful CS orally and intravenously. For awhile i felt pretty good and was able to eat more veggies and be more physical, but that seemed to fall apart after awhile. I even did some powerful antiparsitics for a possible amoeba (histolitica was equivocal on a stool test) I have heard that can be really hard to get.
I still wonder if I am metal toxic and I obviously have some bug(s). I had a Lymes' test from the lab that is supposed to be the best testing for that and it was negative
My Iodine loading test two years ago was 89% and my Bromine was low. I wasn't supplementing Iodine then so I must have had a transport problem. But when i tested my serum-saliva ratio in February that looked ok but my bromide was high and I am definitely having bromide detox.
I was born in New Jersey until 8 years old, then Maine through College and then worked in Rochester New York for 5 years before I moved to Colorado. BTW, I worked at Kodak, I just put it together last month that they make Silver Halides to put in the film, I thougth that was an interesting aside. I didn't work in film manufacturing when I was there, i was an electrical engineer mostly siting in front of a computer. So now I live not too far from Rocky flats another nice toxic place........
that gives you a nutshell for the moment, thanks for asking
