17 Months and 2 Days Later
Tuesday, December 18th, 2001
I just can't say enough (obviously) about how
my life has changed since having my amalgam fillings removed over
17 months ago. Everything is new. I tell my business partner (Laura)
that I feel like I've been "born again". Everything has
changed. I am a different person.
For much of my teen and adult life I struggled
with emotional issues that are now gone... just suddenly gone. Physical
problems that were a constant challenge 2 years ago have long been
forgotten. I so amazed at how much I've changed.
I just had the chance to read over my entire story
today simply because I'm redesigning our company website. In reading
the story, I realized how much stuff I left out. I know it was because
I was so busy at the time, but nevertheless, there were a number
of issues that I just didn't have time to go into; Issues that are
now non existent.
For instance... A couple years ago, I built a
big (12 x 12) shed in the back yard of my house; Built it completely
from scratch. During the 6 weeks it took to build in the hot Florida
sun, I worked harder than I have since spring training for high
school football. I mean... that's real work.
During that time, I did not lose any weight. I
had already gained quite a bit of weight a few years previous. But
during the time I was building the shed, I thought for sure that
I would lose weight.
Amazingly, in the past year since the amalgam
removal, I have lost quite a bit if weight, without any regular
exercise at all. In fact, I just started a regular program of exercise
last week (for the first time in a while) and after just 1 week,
am showing considerable signs of weight loss. Could the obesity
problem in America be caused in part to mercury poisoning? Over
1 million mercury-based amalgam fillings are placed every day in
the U.S. alone. Think about it.
Now, according to the research I've found, "uncontrollable
weight gain" is a common symptom of mercury poisoning. Imagine
Another huge change in my life is that I'm on
a normal sleep schedule. I get tired around midnight and get up
about 7 am. I don't believe I mentioned this in my story but, this
had been a huge problem for me for many years. Because of general
anxiety and other issues, I could not get to sleep until 4 am to
7 am each morning. Well, that's all changed.
Another amazing thing that I did make reference
to in my story is what I called "exercise withdraw". If
I ate sweets and did not exercise some time the same day, I would
feel a thick, clogged feeling in my muscles that would interfere
with concentration and sleep. Sweets also tended to make me irritable;
Even fruit sugar.
Not anymore. No matter how horrible I eat, I don't
get "exercise withdraw". I might get a bit of a "sugar
buzz", but that's all.
It's hard to believe that I hardly ever take NSP
Fat Grabbers anymore. I used to take them with every meal just to
avoid the tired, exhausted feeling that would follow. Yea, they
worked well, but without them, I was in big trouble. My body is
now able to process fats normally. Regardless of what I eat, I don't
have those symptoms anymore. According to Hal's book, mercury has
devastating and debilitating effects on the liver. Image that!
Since I posted this story on our website over
a year ago, a number of people called and e-mailed me sharing their
experiences with amalgam fillings and asking questions about mine.
I remember a sweet woman from Colorado who was
suffering from severe depression and was so frustrated because she
could not "be the mother she wanted to be for her several boys".
She was nearly in tears telling me her story about how doctors have
put her on one thing, then another, and after years of trying, nothing
has changed. After reading my story she was so compelled to call
me in the hope that she may find an answer.
After a long discussion with her, she now has
hope, and I am thrilled. I told her to contact me after her removal
and let me know what happens, and that I'd love to have her write
her story, regardless of whether the removal helps her depression
or not. I want to do this for the sake of integrity and to give
people an honest look at the process. I don't know if having amalgams
replaced will make a difference for her [although, I would be very
surprised if it didn't], but I want to learn and share with others
who want to learn. I don't want to distort the truth. I'd rather
observe it, learn from it, and "let the chips fall where they
I've had another woman contact who told me all
about her experience with breast cancer.
After having part of a breast removed, her doctor
wanted to remove both her breasts. Being through an operation once,
she refused and told her doctor that she was going to seek "alternatives".
Her doctor actually followed her out through the waiting room of
the his office and hollered at her from the door saying that she
is being stupid and will be dead in 6 months.
After consulting with local herbalists, the very
first thing she did was to have all her amalgam fillings replaced.
Then she went on a strict program of diet, exercise, and emotional
Three months later, she returned to her doctor
for an MRI. When she called in for the results, the office said
they were inconclusive and she would have to get the MRIs taken
over again. She did, and the office said the new MRIs were also
inconclusive. Frustrated, and suspecting that her doctor's office
wasn't telling her the whole truth, she went to another office and
had a third set of MRIs taken. They told her that she was completely
clear and had no cancer or visible growths at all. Remember, this
is after only three months. [Hal's book goes into great detail about
how mercury actually causes cancer.]
About a year ago, I went to a meeting where local
health professionals teach healthy cooking. During the presentation,
the subject of amalgam fillings came up. I felt compelled to share
my recent experience and told the entire group that there is nothing
I have ever done for my health that came close to making as much
of a difference as having my amalgams replaced. The husband of the
married team of health professionals told me in front of all attending
that the same is exactly true for him.
Over all, I have a lot to be thankful for. Although
I am upset that the dental community would do something as absurd
and negligent as putting toxic metal in my mouth, and I hope, but
nevertheless doubt, that someone will be held accountable when the
fog finally lifts on this grand conspiracy. Nevertheless, I can
be thankful that, although my hair is now thinner, it's density
has not changed since the removal. I can be thankful that, although
I'm older, and a large part of my life was spent in ill health,
I still have time to live. I can be thankful that, although I share
my story with hope that some will benefit, some day, after enough
have died, after enough have suffered, and after enough have been
fined or imprisoned, after enough have been and been ridiculed at
the hand of media and government, after enough have lost their licenses,
businesses, and families, perhaps everyone will be "mercury
free" and healthier.
The last great and amazing thing that I will mention
is this: Although a few people bravely push forward and seek answers
for their ailments, the vast majority of people that I share my
story with, actually don't believe me. This attribute of human nature
is truly one of the most unbelievable and amazing I've ever encountered.
I have found consistent, reliable research about
various subjects and shared it with people; Like people with cancer,
only to have them reject it and continue down the path that is not
only currently failing them, but does not make any common sense
at all. Like sheep following each other over the cliff, they continued
doing what most people who have had cancer have already done and
In speaking with numerous natural health professionals
over the years, I have learned that I am not the only person who
is astonished at this attribute of human nature. In fact, for most
natural health professionals, it's a way of life that becomes a
philosophy... "Share the truth with them; That's all you can
It does not matter how many studies you have,
how many people it worked for, how long it's been working, or why
it makes common sense. Some people just cannot bring themselves
to believe that some doctors, the media, the aluminum manufacturing
industry, or pharmaceutical companies have ulterior motives that
have nothing to do with your good health.
Even if you tell them... Is it not true that they
only profit when you're sick? Is it not true that it would require
a CEO of exceptionally noble character to sacrifice company profits
for your benefit? Is it not true that the essence of the CEO's job
is to maximize profits for shareholders? So where is your health
in all this? If conventional medicine was winning against cancer,
then why do 1 of 3 people in the leading civilized nation in the
world have it?
If you're afraid believe that the mercury in your
amalgam fillings can hurt you... good. It's a sign that you are
alive. Now, before you let your fear get a hold of you, and before
you start making decisions that are not based on logic and reason,
sound information and common sense, but rather emotionalism and
fear, try something different.
If you've taken the time to read all this, I commend
you. More than likely, you're someone who really cares. You probably
have vision and faith. I encourage you to continue to seek the truth.
If I can help, please feel free to contact me. It's my greatest
reward to help people.
It is also my hope that you can lovingly convince
the ones you care about to search for truth, no matter how ugly
it may be, no matter how hard to attain, no matter how humble you
have to become to accept it, the truth will indeed, set you free.
