Lyme disease, sarcoidosis, chelation therapy, and B17

My mother has had Lyme disease, and also sarcoidosis which attacked her liver and lungs and she also has bad arthritis and diabetes. She was paralyzed from the waist down in 1991, then went to Hungary to get plasmapheresis and intense physical therapy and came home walking 9 months later. She had all her teeth redone with metal fillings while in Hungary years ago and I'm interested in gettting her chelation therapy and/or starting her on B17 to help improve her overall well being. Do you think this is a good plan?

While, for medical-legal reasons, I cannot advise any particular procedure to a person who is not my patient, there is no doubt in my mind that, in general, removing sources of toxic heavy metals and following that with chelation to remove already absorbed levels of toxic heavy metals is a good preventive medicine maneuver. Also, I have found that it often improves the clinical condition of many illnesses. However, in your post you first state that she had metal installed in her teeth, but you make no mention of replacing the metal. Chelating before removing heavy metal sources, prime among which are mercury amalgams, makes no sense. If you are going to do this, I urge you to find a dentist and a doctor experienced in the proper procedure for doing it. As to B17 (also known as Laetrile - which is amygdalin), that is an alternative treatment for cancer. What is your purpose in considering that for your mother?

Thankfully, she does not have any cancer that we know of, but I just read that taking a B17 supplement daily will significantly reduce your risk of cancer. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to add anything unnecessary if she doesn't need it. I was just interested in your thoughts on this. If you know of any dentist in the NJ area that you would recommend to remove those fillings, I would greatly appreciate it. My mom has been through years of sickness and I would do anything for her. She is the kindest woman I've ever known and has truly enriched my life. I'm sorry, I said she had fillings, they're actually caps that have metal under each tooth. Her whole top row of teeth have these.

The only evidence I can find supporting B17 as a cancer preventative is the idea that the Eskimos, the Hunzas, and the Abkasians have never had a reported case of cancer and that they eat a lot of foods containing B17. That proves nothing. Diets with lots of B17 are also high in antioxidants. No cancers in these groups? Really? What is the proof of that? There is no doubt there is a cancer epidemic underway i nthe world. My view is that it results from the general level of toxicity in the air, food, and water we are exposed to. I believe the best way to prevent it is to be constantly detoxifying. It may be an illusion that any single supplement will do that job all by itself. As to metal under each tooth, what are dentists thinking? That is totally unnecessary. Nevertheless, while not ideal, it is less of an insult to health than exposed metal. I do not personally know any mercury free, biological dentist in NJ. Sorry.
