Just wanted to report some good news!

When I originally tested for toxic metals (through the IV challenge test) my levels were at a 32 (very elevated). This was in Feb 2011.

Since then I had my 4 amalgams removed (in April 2011) and did 6 rounds of IV chelation (just the 30 min push).

Did another challenge after my 6th treatment and it is now down to a 5.2!! Going to do about 3 more that I need to schedule.

Also--in addition to the IV chelations I sat in my gym's sauna for about 10-12 mins a couple of times a week.

I am feeling really good! I am very excited and wanted to share the good news!!!

this is great.
how many amalgams total did you have to remove? are they all gone?

I have 15-16 I want to get replaced but my LLND says it's too soon to do that kind of work. I had 1 tiny one removed when i was kind of ill and i wound up in the hospital with bone crushing lung pain. yikes. scared to get any more dental work done.

Thanks! I only had 4 amalgams and had them all removed at the same time.

Hopefully you can have yours done as you are feeling better. I felt a noticeable difference w/in 2 weeks of having my fillings removed (my head was more clear and I especially noticed that I no longer drove like an elderly person at night!).

I did not expect my number to go down as much as it has and just so happy about that!

Hi Anna!

That's great news! Did you have any weird side effects with the IV Chelation? What do they use for that?

Also any change in the liver spots? I'm sure this will all help that.

I've been doing some liver cleanse and soon I'm going back on ABX. Wish me luck. KIT

Hi Chhotik--I meant to send you a PM which I will do in case you don't come back here. I am noticing that they are fading! I still see them but the ones on my arms are less pronounced. I am hoping they will gradually all go away, but so far some improvement which is better than nothing right?!
