After trying to figure out for months why I was spiraling downward mentally and physically I came across a book that unlocked some key pieces of information. The book, Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome, has some amazing information about how your adrenal system works and how it affects you when it is malfunctioning. Here are some common symptoms of adrenal fatigue which are also common symptoms of mercury poisoning, which I will explain below.
- Excessive fatigue and exhaustion, chronic fatigue
- Non-refreshing sleep
- Sleep disturbance, insomnia
- Feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope
- Sensitivity to light
- Low stamina and slow to recover from exercise
- Difficulty concentrating, brain fog
- Poor digestion
- Low immune function
- Low blood pressure
- Reduced memory
I had all these symptoms and after reading this book I knew I had adrenal fatigue, but the question I still had was why? I was in great shape, an amateur triathlete, slept well, ate well, low body fat, did not smoke, and only consumed an occasional glass of wine.
The answer came when I was diagnosed with mercury toxicity, more commonly called chronic mercury poisoning, or amalgam illness. Over a period of 25 years my silver amalgam mercury fillings gave off toxic mercury vapor. That vapor went into my lungs and bloodstream and then into the cells of my body. The human body naturally stores mercury since it can only eliminate a very small amount at a time. As it built up over time it caused many systems in my body to fail, one of them being the adrenal system. When that one started to fail my cortisol levels and other hormones in my body became out of balance and I started to feel all the symptoms above.
In my opinion if people diagnosed with chronic fatigue or adrenal fatigue search for the root cause, a majority of people will find that mercury fillings will be the culprit. Such as it was in my case.The only way to recover from mercury poisoning or mercury toxicity is to find a good doctor that has experience in chelation, the art/science of removing mercury from the human body. I recommend Julie Anderson, ARNP in Seattle, WA. She works with patients all around the world on this topic and uses the Andy Cutler protocol from his book Amalgam Illness.
