The Beautiful Truth

Raised on a wildlife reserve in Alaska, 15-year-old Garrett was interested in the dietary habits of the farm animals. After the tragic death of his mother, Garrett’s father decided to home-school his son and assigned a book written by Dr. Max Gerson that proposed a direct link between diet and a cure for cancer.

Fascinated, Garrett embarks in this documentary, The Beautiful Truth (2008), on a cross-country road trip to investigate The Gerson Therapy. He meets with scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal how it is in the best interest of the multi-billion dollar medical industry to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures. Some of the topics in this film: Gerson Therapy, cancer, dental amalgam, mercury, fluoride, GSM, and aspartame.

 

 

 

Intoxication With Heavy Metal As A Possible Cause Of Parkinson’s Disease

By veterinarian Hanne Koplev.

Hanne Koplev in the woods

A neurologist recommended in the year 1998, that I should be medicated against my tremor, but I said no thank you to his offer, as I preferred to be better diagnosed before starting medication.

The following year my symptoms increased, as I became more rigid and my tremor got worse and I therefore was easy to persuade by a new neurologist to try anti-Parkinson medication. Shortly after, I was scanned for Parkinson’s disease and the result was compatible with the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in the early stage.

Anti-Parkinson medication helped to decrease the symptoms, but soon I experienced more severe symptoms. At first I thought that it was the disease becoming more severe and this was confirmed by my neurologist who told me that it was unavoidable.

After one year on medication my neurologist recommended that I stopped medication before the next consultation. This became the start of a new phase in the way I coped with my disease, as without medication, I experienced that:-

–     The medication can result in abstinences when the medication is stopped.

–     Many of the symptoms, that I thought were Parkinson’s symptoms, were in reality side effects of the medication.

Therefore I decided to accept the symptoms of the disease instead of being burdened with adverse side effects of the medication. The outcome of this choice forced me to search for factors, which had influenced my symptoms.

In the year 2001 I was tested for Heavy Metal Toxicity in a private clinic in Aarhus, Denmark by Dr. Bruce Kyle and I was diagnosed with a combined toxic overload with mercury and copper.

I was treated at Dr. Bruce Kyle’s clinic with the Chelating Agent DMPS, with Vitamin-C infusions and different kinds of antioxidants and nutritional support. At the same time I had my amalgam fillings removed and had non-toxic, non-metal composites instead. This was done by a dentist with extra education in safe removal of amalgam. I also use saunas, which help detoxification by sweating out the toxins through my skin.

After some years of undergoing detoxifying treatments, I had fewer tremors and was less rigid, but I still suffered from fatigue. Allergic reaction against metals was suspect, and I undertook a MELISA-test.  My test showed an allergic reaction against gold, nickel and cadmium and treatment protocol was removal of a dental gold crown, which was replaced with plastic.  Now, I try to avoid nickel and to eat more organic food to avoid cadmium. Luckily I have been rewarded for my efforts as my fatigue has decreased.

Today I can honestly say that testing and treatments for my chronic cumulative toxicity has been successful for revealing some of the causes of my Parkinson’s disease. However, I still have slightly high levels of copper left and in autumn 2006 and spring 2008 tests show that I am also burdened with lead and aluminium.

I don’t dare to think about how my life would have been without detoxifying treatments!  When I look at other patients with Parkinson’s disease who are getting worse, I have even more reasons to be thankful for my health, which continues to improve as time goes on.

Where do these Heavy Metals come from?

In my case, mercury and copper were likely to have come from my amalgam fillings. Copper-amalgam contains a high percentage of copper and I had many fillings in my milk teeth. Even later in school I had many cavities, which were restored with amalgam. The dentist said that I had weak teeth.

As an adult, I have only had one cavity, so I might think that my parents were not good at helping me with tooth brushing and perhaps also the school dentist has been tempted to do fillings, which were not necessary as she was paid for the amount of pupils’ cavities that she restored.

In addition I have in my job as a veterinarian, been exposed to many thermometers, which sometimes break and where the mercury ended up in the bottom of the car. Veterinarians were not properly informed that this could constitute a health hazard at that time.

Moreover mercury can come from vaccinations containing the preservative thiomersal (ethyl-mercury). Mercury might also come from environmental pollution and intake of fish. Copper might come from use of copper spiral (anti contraceptive) and from drinking water and food. The Danish Agriculture Production uses 200 tons of copper yearly and this copper could be assumed to spread to the environment and end up in drinking water and food.

When a person is burdened with mercury toxicity, then the excretion of copper is decreased.

My toxicity burden with lead might perhaps come from common environmental pollution. My toxicity with aluminium probably came from years of injections with aluminium containing products against dust mite allergy.

My nutrition today contains more antioxidants (nutrients which protects the body against free radicals and oxidation), more vegetables (raw vegetables are chosen) and more fruits.  I have stopped eating unhealthy fats such as margarine, hard fats, corn oil, soy, sunflower etc. I try to eat more of the healthy fats such as fat fish (salmon), linseed, olives oil, nuts etc.

I take antioxidants as nutritional supplementation, also a multivitamin mineral pill without iron and copper, extra vitamin C and E, Lipoic acid, N-acetyl-cysteine, Echinacea, Ginkgo Biloba and Coenzyme Q10. I also use DMSA for mercury, copper and lead chelation.

Concerning the nutrition I would recommend the book by Jean Carper – “Your Miracle Brain.”

Physical activity has been an important part of my life. At the beginning of my disease I walked without swinging my right arm and I stumbled rather often. After years training trying to walk normally with swinging my right arm, I have succeeded, but only when I am not too stressed or exhausted. The principle is like this, if I can walk one step with swinging the arm, then I can also walk 3 steps….. or also walk 5 minutes…or 5 kilometres and so on.

I also use visualisation when training my movements.

People, who do not realise the effects that Parkinson’s disease has on their own body, often have problems understanding how demanding it is for a Parkinson patient to cope with conscious movements. Even something as banal as cleaning your shoes on a doormat is not necessarily functioning automatically but needs mental work, like steering a toy car with a joystick.

It is very common that a Parkinson patient with time develops a forward bending posture and some years ago I had thoracic Kyphosis and could not wear any of my shirts anymore. A physiotherapist has taught me some physical exercises, which I since have done every day.

Today my back is straight again, which makes me happy. People, who are happy, often have a straight posture, while sad and grieving people often have a crooked posture. By choosing body posture you can also indirectly choose your emotions.

I enjoy sending a signal that I am bubbling with joys of life.

I try to avoid, if possible, all kind of stress. Now I choose calm classical music instead of rock; I value tight relationships instead of having a circle of acquaintances with ‘small talk’ and I love being out in nature instead of taking city walks. It is a pleasure for me to do meditation and to sing.

I have also improved at listening to the signals from my body and I take care to rest and sleep when needed.  I have also improved at learning to avoid doing things, which I dislike and instead I do things that make me happy.

When being diagnosed with a chronic disease the patient often goes through a life crisis and so did I. The crises made me more religious and I learnt to pray to my God from the bottom of my heart – this has given me spiritual power to cope with life and the new circumstances.

‘Where there is willpower, there is a way to go.’ This phrase was said about me by a good friend, as a way to express how I cope with my disease.

Years ago the neurologists said several times that I had got Parkinson’s disease and that this disease is chronic, impossible to cure and progressive. I thought that it might be like this for other patients, but that it would not be like this in my case. By working and studying a lot and sometimes by choosing blind paths, I have succeeded in finding a tiny little path out of my disease. Today I have fewer symptoms than in the year 1998, which means that the expression ‘progressive’ cannot be used generally about all patients with Parkinson’s disease.

I retired in the year 2001 when I was 44 years old and although it was really a hard time, today I feel that I have a good life. To my co-patients I will say:-  “Search for knowledge and keep on trying to search for new possibilities.”

Generally I recommend neurological patients to be tested with a chelating agent for chronic toxicity with heavy metals. If this is diagnosed, then it is possible to detoxify, which can give hope to a future of increased health and decreased neurological symptoms.

If you want more information about toxicity with heavy metal and Parkinson’s disease then use the Internet.

Thank you for reading my case-story and I wish you all the best.

KJ’s Story: 15 Year-Old Poisoned By Mercury Fillings

September 16, 2008, K.J. Phenezy turned 15 years young. K. J. is the only child of a single, business woman and they lived a great life. Their home sat on a hill overlooking beautiful city lights in San Diego County. Their property was full of flowers, fruits, palm trees with a lovely swimming pool and jacuzzi that they never used. K. J. had a theater room to play Xbox 360 with his friends, dogs, basketball, movie nights with friends and trips to the mall. K.J. was (and still is) a smart, happy, loving young man who stayed out of trouble.

K.J was a very healthy 15 years old. He had never had the flu or even a flu shot. He hadn’t required an antibiotic since he was a baby with an ear infection. As one of the star players on his basketball team, K.J. often played an entire game without resting. He was the epitome of health.

K.J. was finally ready to overcome his fear of the dentist so he could get braces for his teeth. On October 8, 2008, his mom took him to a local chain dentist in San Diego County. They placed two amalgams (a.k.a. silver fillings) in his right upper and lower molars. 3 days later, K.J. was ill with a fever of 102 – 102.9 for 3 days. His fever was accompained by chills and sweat. Except for the lack of mucus, it appeared as though K.J. had the flu.

It turned out that K.J.’s fever was a warning sign that something drastic was happening to his body. A few days after his fever broke, K.J. woke up with a swollen lip. The swell dissipated after a couple of hours. The next day it was a swollen jaw, then eyelid. The swelling began on the right side of his face where the new fillings were located. T. M. Phenezy (K.J.s Mom) asked the hospital to check for mercury poisoning. Recognizing the correlation, his mom took him to see his primary care doctor. She asked his doctor about the fillings, but her thoughts were quickly dismissed. She was told that silver fillings do not make people sick!

K.J.’s symptopms continued to escalate. By December 13, 2008, he was admitted to the children’s hospital in San Diego. K.J. received 2 blood transfusions and numerous tests. T. M. Phenezy had researched the amalgams and found that they were primarily mercury, not silver. She found that there was undisputed and admitted evidence that the mercury leaks from the amalgam compound and enters the bloodstream. They tested his blood and did not find an elevated mercury level. NO MERCURY POISONING? What T. M. Phenezy did not know at the time was that a blood test is one of the least efficient ways to test for chronic mercury poisoning.

K.J. was finalyy diagnosed with lupus in December 08, Stage V nephritis (a kidney disease) in January 09 and by March 9, 2009, K.J. was in a wheel chair, diagnosed with neuropathy (nerve damage). His symptoms continued to escalate although K.J. was on the proper mediation.

T. M. Phenezy (K.J.’s Mom and CEO of The National Patient Advocate Institute) began researching diligently. What she found shocked her. Amalgams were banned in other countries and Canada had placed restrictions on its use. The U.S. had never required the manufacturers to prove its safety. They were simply grandfathered in. She also found that some people lose the ability to excrete the mercury, so it gets stored in their tissues, causing more harm.

K.J.’s mercury fillings were safely removed on March 19, 2008. Some of his symptoms went away or improved, but he was still in a wheel chair. The Children’s Hospital of San Diego’s doctors refused to consider the evidence and research. His mom decided to pack up, sell the home and try an out of state hospital. Any hospital that would listen!

On April 30, 2009, K.J was admitted into Lebonheur’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. The once healthy 15 y.o. was frail due to losing 30 pounds. He lost that weight even on 60 – 120 mg of steroids a day. For 16 days, Lebonheur’s tried all their conventional medicines for lupus, nephritis, and neuropathy. They poked, prodded and ran numerous labs. K.J. was getting weaker. He couldn’t stand, walk, or roll over in bed. K.J. couldn’t even wiggle his toes and he was no longer ticklish under his feet. The nerve damage was worse. They assigned him a physical therapist and an occupational therapist.

T. M. Phenezy inudated Lebonheurr’s doctors with research every moment they were in the room. Some wouldn’t listen, but she talked anyway. She was sure it was the mercury! On day 16, May 15, 2009, the Attending Physician entered the room and said that Lebonheur’s Children’s Hospital would treat K.J. for mercury poisoning. Lebonheur’s hospital had never treated a patient for mercury poisoning due to amalgams, so they had to do a lot of research.

Ms. Phenezy was told not to expect any results. Chelation therapy for mercury poisoning began that evening and the very next morning, May 16, 2009, K.J. was able to stand with the aide of a bedside table! Miracle? May 17, 2009, K.J. was pushing his wheelchair down the hall. He continued to improve and was released to inpatient physical therapy to strenghten his muscles and walk without assistance again.

Today, according to hospital lab tests, K.J. is still fighting lupus, but miracoulsy has no signs of neuropathy. He also has no visual signs of lupus. Due to strong advocating, educating and research by T. M. Phenezy, her once seriously ailing son is walking, running, laughing and working on building new friendships in a new state.

 

 

Poison In The Mouth

Startling documentary shows evidence of brain damage from mercury in silver amalgam fillings. Most dentists who deny mercury is harmful, will remove them without precautions and can cause a relapse or an equivalent of over 10 years mercury exposure in one go if they drill them out, so if you think you need to remove and replace them, be sure to search out a qualified dentist who uses correct procedures to remove & replace them with safe alternatives like ceramic fillings, or else leave them in until they need replacing if you have had them for ages, and get ceramic ones or a safe alternative to mercury amalgam.

The IAOMT gives guidelines for the removal of mercury amalgam fillings in a safe way, as you will need to go on a mercury detox program before and after taking them out to rid your body of the amount of mercury you will absorb during extraction, as no matter how many precautions taken, you will still be exposed to very high levels, so will need detox, but be careful, research this well if you decide to take action, as you can do more harm than good if you don’t know what you are doing, you have been warned.

Wake Up America: Mercury, The FDA & The Truth

The  FDA (U S Food and Drug Administration) has declared mercury safe for the food supply, claiming that there is no danger in consuming mercury in fish. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has however declared mercury to be toxic to human consumption. Studies have connected mercury with neurological brain disorders including autism and MS.

Mercury And Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Connection?

Mercury toxicity has been identified as a possible risk factor for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neurodegenerative disorders.  Perhaps an interaction between the metal exposure and an individual’s genetic makeup is required to produce epigenetic changes that ultimately lead to ALS. Following are some selected articles about mercury and ALS.

How To Reverse Breast Cancer

Watch Dr. Mike Godfrey, a New Zealand physician, talk about how he was able to reverse Breast Cancer in his staff member with biological dental care and medical intervention. He had her remove her mercury filled teeth and dead root filled teeth.

Thermograms are a non-invasive ZERO radiation way to evaluate breast health and should be in every drug store for $0.25 just like blood pressure equipment. It also shows thyroid problems and if there is severe gum disease and a whole lot more. It is merely a color image of the body temperature.

 

 

 

Council of Europe Calls For End of Amalgam

From Consumers for Dental Choice:

The Council of Europe calls for
“restricting or prohibiting the use of amalgams”

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution on 27 May 2011 urging its 47 member countries to start “restricting or prohibiting the use of amalgams as dental fillings.”

Deputy Jean Huss, Luxembourg’s representative to the Council of Europe (not to be confused with the European Union), drafted the meticulously researched report that explains two major reasons behind this call to action:

Amalgam is a health threat: “…amalgams are the prime source of exposure to mercury for developed countries, also affecting embryos, foetuses (through the placenta) and children (through breastfeeding). Exposure to mercury can seriously affect the health of patients and dental professionals…”

Amalgam is an environmental threat: “…between 60 and 90 tonnes of mercury from dental surgeries are released into and contaminate Europe’s atmosphere, surface waters and soil every year.”

The Council of Europe’s ground-breaking resolution will have a favorable impact on the ongoing mercury treaty negotiations.  With this resolution, the Council of Europe joins the growing international call for the amalgam phase-out that is already endorsed by the African region, the Arab League, and the United States government.  (The Council of Europe’s report observed that the U.S. position itself is “likely to change the global debate on amalgams.”)

Thank you to Marie Grosman, who testified before Monsieur Huss and the Council of Europe Sub-Committee on Health in preparation for this report and the resulting resolution.  Marie is the life science lecturer who leads the mercury-free dentistry movement in France along with the group Non Au Mercure Dentaire.  She also serves as Vice President for Europe, World Alliance for Mercury-Free Dentistry, the coalition that represents our cause on the international front.
