I have to tell you, I still can’t believe this! I am 3 months post amalgam removal and feeling the same relief I felt right after they were removed! How this affects my Hashimotos Thyroiditis will not be known for a bit longer as I had some trouble detoxing after the removal (couldn’t afford the recommended detox regimen) and I am currently doing some detox strategies through my GAPS consultant which won’t be completed until likely the end of October.
But since I have not yet done a second update on how I am feeling after the removal of the amalgams, I thought I’d post just a quick one until I can do a repeat mercury test and a full thyroid panel which can be compared to pre-removal testing. Once those are done, I hope to give a detailed comparison which will outline the specific symptoms that have been relieved through this process. If you missed the first post on my mercury poisoning, check it out here.
Immediately after I had my amalgams removed (beginning at the first of the four quadrants and the one measured with the highest charge), my ability to digest improved over night! This is still the case. I have not had bloating, pain, or any digestive complaints since removal. I waited for this post to make sure there was not a “placebo” effect going on. I am so amazed at this change! Secondly, I was having dizziness, extremely unsteady gait, and the feeling of not being able to stay conscious after eating anything! I also had a rapid resting heart rate of over 120 which accelerated to crazy levels just by standing up! So I was all but bedridden prior to these removals! Not to mention a very high blood pressure which got to 200/101 numerous times preceding the removals. These were serious symptoms which lead me to the amalgam removal question. I had tried everything I could think of before that. My heart rate also significantly went down, and by the last removal, I was moving around freely once more! My blood pressure hit normal for the first time in 15 years measured at my doctor’s office about one month after the final removal! I am so glad I chose to have them removed. None of those symptoms are present besides occasional slight dizziness or feeling a bit “off”. I do believe that the mercury has not fully been purged from my body as I was unable to do a proper detox throughout the procedure. I am now doing what I can to detox as much as possible.
Once I get the testing done, I will see how the mercury load is on my body but there is no doubt in my mind that the constant onslaught of mercury through chewing my food has been eliminated. This makes me very happy! I believe the relief came from stopping this onslaught. There is also no doubt it will take months to years to detox a considerable amount of the mercury that was present in my organs and body throughout the many years I was carrying these poisonous fillings in my mouth.
All in all, I am finally stable and the healing is so obviously happening! I do encourage others to consider their fillings as a possible link to illness. I can’t guarantee you will have the same results I have experienced, but sometimes we have no choice but to take the risk to think “outside the box” when we are desperate for help. For me, the risk was worth every penny! I am alive and I am healing!
As you are aware, I am on the GAPS Diet so I will be posting here and there on my journey through this healing phase of my life. I will also continue to post helpful links to interviews with experts on thyroid disorders and other informative content that might be of help to others. If you are on the GAPS Diet and would like to comment on your journey, I would be honored to hear from you!
