Thanks Joe, that's really helpful.
Interesting thing is that I started feeling anxious even before the Amalgam removal, it just exacerbated my symptoms. But I had my mouth full of old fillings, so they could be making me sick long before that.
Do you know if mercury can lead to hormonal imbalances? The first thing I noticed when I was getting worse is that my hormones went out of whack, PCOS out of control, lost most of my hair, skin worse than in my teenage years and other embarrasing symptoms.
I will give Vit C another try, my doc also says to do so. This time slowly and with lower doses, maybe only up to 3000-5000 mg. What would be the safest dose to start with? 1 000 mg? Raise weekly or every few days? I really don't want to go overboard again and I'm sensitive to everything I take.
My question is does Vit C chelate mercury? Can it actually give detox-like side effects?
I now have just ascorbic acid at home but I'm going to order some buffered C, I'm thinking sodium ascorbate. I think that'd be the best for the adrenals since most of us with AF have low sodium.
I'm also going to buy some plain Mg citrate or glycinate and discontinue or reduce calcium, let's see if I feel calmer after that.
I pretty much read everything about adrenals that is out there, now I started looking into heavy metals, and I will def. do more research on methylation and lithium if the anxiety and brain fog allows me.
It's like the more I know, the more I realize how much I DON'T know, if that makes any sense ;)
The story you shared really gives some hope, anxiety cured 100%! that's a thought to hold on to.
