test results

I saw Dr. Alt-Medicine today and got my results from a blood test, hair analysis, & biological terrain assessment. I'm not sure what role any of this has in my headaches, but the hair analysis showed high levels of Aluminum, Cadmium, Uranium, & Titatium. I'm a bit alarmed about the U result! The Dr. said that he doesn't see that too often, so I'm wondering where I was exposed to it. The narrative that came with the results said that U can be in drinking water, root vegetables, and phosphate fertilizers. Hmmm... there's no way to get it out of my body, so I guess I am not going to worry about it. For the other heavy metals, he recommended chelation therapy. I can't do it because it is too expensive, too time-consuming, and I'm not entirely convinced that it is will help anything. He also suggested allergy treatment by total body modification. This I am considering at least a try... It is also pricey, but not as time consuming (or as expensive). Since I think my headaches are allergy-related, I am willing to go out on a bit of a limb for that one. I'll let you know. Other results- I have high cholesterol! Isn't that great that a vegetarian of over 14 years can have high LDL. My mom said it runs in our family, but I still think I will watch my saturated fat intake. BTW, my mercury levels are miniscule...

Hello There:

I've always suffered from Migrains as well. Even as a very young person I already had terrible, terrible headaches. However, I've been seeing Dr. Clouthier now for over 2 years and I rarely have a Migrane any more. He deals with the whole person - structural, emotional and nutritional. I can see such a difference in myself in regards to my over all health.

Wishing you the best!

Hi Viola: Thanks for the comment! Have you had TBM? What sort of treatments have helped with your migraines? I may try TBM, but haven't had time to get back to the Dr yet. Take care.

I've been getting regular chiropractic care from a doctor that is very good.

I've also reduced stress in my life and I get massages at times which seem to help.

I don't like taking any kind of medication so I usually will find some alternative resolution.
