I'm still searching for the cause of my ongoing fatigue and muscle weakness - all of which has been greatly improved by a primal diet, but I am still struggling quite a bit.
I have a very strong nickel allergy and recently saw a paper about people with ongoing fatigue having a strong immune response to mercury and/or nickel. I looked up a low nickel diet and it is pretty close to a primal diet - but with lots more restrictions.
Nickel Allergy Diet. Learn what foods have nickel in them.
My fatigue can be brutal at times and manageable at others. I'm wondering if it is because my nickel intake varies quite a bit. I'm also thinking about having my two mercury fillings replaced.
Anyone here have a nickel allergy and problems with fatigue? Or see their health improve after having mercury fillings removed?
flush it out.
buy 1 bottle of dmsa a provocation dose is 1gram or 1000 mg. take it and notice what happens in your body for the next siz hours. if you want you can capture your urine and look at it the next morning.
flushing reactions vary, but mostly emotional disturbances and possible involuntary muscle contractions of the extremities. nothing huge but certainly noticeable.
if you get a reaction it would be worth pursuing, if not dont.
if your urine has sediment in it of at least 10-20% of its volume you probably need it.
or you can find a doctor to do the same thing and have the actual metal levels read.
whichever you feel safer doing
Avoid any doctor that would want to use EDTA nothing good comes of it. tht tells you they are behind the times or lack the education you need
additionally you can use cilantro and other green chelators however after serious usage of those my levels were still higher than Everest
