On a personal note, many of you know I went through chelation in 2009 to deal with heavy metal poisoning. I did not complete it at that time, but did just enough to get the bothersome symptoms to go away and improve my hearing. After having been sick for three years, I was anxious to resume life with two small kids and felt like chelation was getting in the way. It was the right decision at the time, but now I need to return to it to complete the course. We made the decision this weekend to go back on it. I have been experiencing a slow, downward slide in my balance and hearing again. Those are my two big clues that it is time.
This tells me two things. First, I need to stay the course and finish it instead of stopping once the symptoms improve. Second, I need more on-going liver support to help keep the metals from building up again. Despite our safeguards and clean diet, I’m still having small exposures in the environment that my body isn’t filtering out as well as I would like. I feel like both will be easier to do now that the kids are older and I’m much physically stronger than I was before.
There’s no time like the present to fix this problem. So we decided I would slow down and complete this, for the sake of my health. I likely will drop to working 30 hours a week on CTF instead of 40-60, so I can get more rest and heal faster. The Menu Mailer, blog and the other projects associated with the Menu Mailer that are already in progress will stay the course and will be my focus. That does mean that some projects, like the eClasses and some of the additional books, will be pushed back a bit and will debut later than we had anticipated.
I’m definitely in a better shape to chelate than I was in 2009. Two years ago, I was 105 pounds and a size zero. Chelation was my lifeline to hang on and I don’t believe I would have survived without it. I’m at a normal weight, I’m much physically stronger, my adrenals are far better shape, I’m not suffering from fatigue and I can get through a normal day without parking on the couch for hours. I currently show no signs of adrenal fatigue except some mild seasonal allergies. So I have high hopes that it will be easier on everyone in the household for mama to chelate and see this through to the end.
