chronic fatigue, Wilson's, weight and edema

I've been to so many doctors and have tried so many things without success. Each time I go, I find more problems but no answers. A temp chart showed Wilson's syndrome, bloodwork showed Hashimoto's Disease and Chronic Fatigue. Nothing shows the reason for continuing weight gain and fluid retention. The TSH, T3 and T4 are still in normal range. I took T3 for 6 months and the temp was better for awhile but has now gone back down, and the doctor who prescribed that has died since then. The less I eat, the more tired I get and the weight doesn't go away. When I resume eating 2,500 cal, I gain worse than before. For the edema the doctors have tried Lasix, but I have to take it at night for any effect, and it is coming back by the next evening, and by one week it's all back. I've had stress tests and thallium type stress tests, have had everything from
all the weight groups to physician controlled liquid diet. I'm getting desperate for this is well into the morbidly obese range. I have one more visit to remove my fillings and then will be getting the DMPS 'shot'. Help?

Please list the actual foods you have consumed over the last 48 hours. I am not asking for what you usually consume, or what you think you wished you had consumed, but what you actually put into your body for the last 48 hours from the moment you read this. Be complete and include liquids.

When metabolism is slowed to this degree and there is no hormonal or dietary explanation, it becomes extremely likely that a person is in, what I call, the Generalized Toxicity Syndrome. What this means is that the mesenchymal system is completely saturated with toxic material and any additions, i.e. non-organic foods for example, or an unbalanced diet which requires the expulsion of waste products of metabolism, simply overwhelms the organs and metabolism is slowed down due to the toxic "soup" in which they are living. When this happens, edema always shows up - I believe the body is trying to dilute the toxins. Use of a diuretic merely concentrates the toxins and causes a rebound phenomenon. Bear in mind that I am not specifically trying to describe you, but rather a condition I see over and over in clinical practice. Naturally, treatment involves detox procedures. This is not something that I advise you to try on your own. Generally speaking MDs and DOs (allopathic doctors) have no clue about how to diagnose or treat this condition. Some of the doctors listed on this web site are exceptions, particularly those who list "detoxification" as one of their specialties. Other than that, unless you can come see me, you are on your own to find someone in your community to help you. If you are calling to screen people, one question which would separate the sheep from the goats is: "Do you know about the Arise and Shine detox system?" If the answer is "no," you are almost surely not dealing with a person competent in detox.

Funny enough, the more I've read about homeopathics and info on remedies, like thuja, the more I began to wonder if I was going to have to go through cleansing. It sounds like a tough process but one that's worth it in the end. Would you be able to help with this, and, if so, what are your fees, and is this somethimg that can be taken care of over the internet? I don't know where you are, but I'm in northern NJ, so travel might be a problem if you are in California.
You did a good job of describing me, by the way. I had a hair-mineral analysis done, and even though mercury was in the low range along with the other metals, many minerals were at toxic levels, and somehow that threw the metal/mineral ratio into toxic levels. The
toxic soup is probably pretty nasty after 53 years of boiling and stirring. I also forgot to tell you that I used to be hypoglycemic, but am now on the borderline headed for diabetis. I'd rather see the complications go to the better side rather than this downward spiral I'm in. Thank you for your help. It's good to get some answers ...that alone is encouraging.

Can't handle it over the Internet; sorry. I am in No. Calif. I suggest you use the Find A Doctor function (yellow tab above) and failing that, the Doctor Referral Service which appears with it. One of those 10 docs on the Referral Service should be able to help you.

You are welcome, and thanks for remembering the "thank you." Very few people remember that.

Well, thank you from all those who forgot. I'm sure they thought it in their hearts, but all too often are feeling too crummy ( and therefore kind of wrapped in a suffering bubble) and do forget that you need encouragement too. I'm very impreesed the way you manage to answer so many people and you don't get paid for this, either. You truly do have the Hippocratic Oath deep in your heart and overflowing to those you help. I just wish you weren't all the way in California!!

By the way, are there homeopathy classes that laymen can take. I'm learning drabs and dribbles, but want to learn more. Any suggestions? I was in nursing school for 1 year, but should have grown up before tackling that. I've worked in hospitals and Dr. offices
until marraige 25 years ago, but the kids and hubby have kept me in good practice with everything from asthma to Lupus and systemic fungal infections - sporotricossis(sp) to be precise. But I wish I'd known homeopathy to help instead of suppress.

I will soon put up an opportunity for people to contribute to the web site although this will not be required.

If you want to learn some valuable information, I suggest you learn about the isopathic remedies (SanPharma) and the Pekana remedies. These are a step beyond homeopathy in effectiveness. You can ask for information and sign up for courses through Bio-resource at 800-203-3775.
