I am post menopausal and had a rough ride at that stretch of my life. Could not take estrogen and am happy I didn't because of the cancer factors related to that hormone. I started right away with progesterone and that seem to be the better trade
Menopause seemed to be the point in my life that turned it up-side-down, for I went to several doctors, who knew next to nothing regarding this matter, that includes 3-4 women gynocologist and a host of other MDs, who thought it was the thyroid etc.
Seven years ago I was diagnosed with mercury poisoning due to the amalgam filling in my teeth. I had the amalgams removed by a very competant dentist, who specialized in that. Then I followed a protocol for 3 1/2 years; finally getting rid of the mercury in my body.
The mercury caused a plethora of symptoms, one really messing up my gut. I was still having problems and then did an EDTA chelation + urine test showing very high lead.
The highest Result on the lead was 36 and shows up on the Reference Range as very elevated. However, my last Urine Toxic Metals is 25, but still on the very elevated graph. This is the third year and have had many EDTA chelations.
I have gut problems, fatigue, body pain, etc. I would like to find someone who has undergone a protocol for removing lead and discuss what they are undergoing.
