THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

HEAVY METAL BURDEN

     This info is from Page 202-209
                        By Dr. Richard I. Horowitz MD.
 
   The subject in this article is HEAVY METAL BURDEN (HMB) . The chapter in Dr. Horowitzs book "Why Can't I Get Better" Environmental Toxins and Lyme, explains the possible reasons why we don't respond to known helpful remedies while some get better and some do not. There is now a possible answer to that and this is what I am writing about in this article. I have found a new term to me. It is called "Heavy Metal Burden" This is the amount of heavy metals absorbed into our systems from food (fish) medications, air we breath, or even the dental work we may have had done many years ago.
   HMB in this article pertains mostly to mercury, Lead, with arsenic, cadmium,nickel, and aluminum completing the most common metals to overload in our bodies. I am finding that HMB can have an overlapping block to lyme meds or other ailments and act very much like lyme itself. Or perhaps you don't have lyme if you were tested negative and also negative for HMB. These can hinder or override known remedies to many of our system challenges.
   There is a protocol to testing for HMB that requires a 500mg/indepent wt. dose or injection of a chelating agent called DMSA (dimercaptosuccinic acid). Then a urine test in 24hrs. This was found not to be an accurate HMB test for environmental toxins that have accumulated over time. I do not know if this protocol is still good for resent exposure or not.
   With the help of one of Dr. Horowitz's dentist friends. Dr H. has found that using DMSA at (30mg/kg) and urine sample at 6 hrs. This proves more accurate and Dr. H started checking his other patients with heavy metal numbers tripling. The good news is that with chelating techniques that is used today. What use to take a life time to filter from the body can now be done in weeks. There for those who suffer chronic unexplained symptoms such as: 1. chronic fatigue, 2. fibromialgia, 3. neuropathy 4. cognitive difficulties 5. tinitis (ringing in the ears) 6. neurosphyciatric symptoms.
   Maybe you have Lyme or an over lapping problem of Heavy Metal Burden or HMB alone. It amazes me the many things we learn along the way through solving problems such as Lyme, cancer and so many illnesses I believe with Lyme pioneers like Dr. Horowitz, Dr. Burascano, Dr. Murry Susser and many others trying to tackle this problem. We will continue to stumble onto other cures and better protocols for the future for many other auto-immune ailments.
