57, White Female
My first mercury level (before amalgam removal) tested at 150 (very high). My second testing (after removal of amalgams) was 300. The seemed backwards to me, but my physician explained that it showed that the mercury was now coming out into my body (from chelation) and therefore, the reading was so high. I have not yet had further testing, but I expect it to be lower. However, I also expect that it will take quite awhile for my levels of toxins to get to something acceptable. I am OK with that, as long as things are going in the right direction. It is very had to measure and evaluate depression. I am still taking the lowest level of effexar, usually prescribed for serotonin replenishment. It is far too early to tell, but I have a hunch that I am less depressed. I am still very fatigue, but I also understand that my body is doing a lot of work in this healing and detoxification process, and this consumes a great deal of energy. My mineral analysis recently showed that my glandular exhaustion is also gradually recovering. The amounts are extremely low, but again, it is the new direction that is significant. I am encouraged and glad to be on the upswing, no matter how long it takes.
