leaky gut/SanPharma remedies

Thank you for your response and information about treatment for leaky gut syndrome. Our daughter (19) will take a DMPS Challenge to determine mercury toxicity. She is really suffering from leaky gut along with numerous other symptoms. In your last response you mentioned that the doctor should perform a dry blood analysis to determine leaky gut...Is that different from a live blood cell analysis? I read your article about SanPharma remedies and have a few questions. You mentioned the importance of finding a doctor who knows his/her stuff...are these SanPharma remedies available in all parts of country? We live in Columbus, OH. Would any doctor have access to ordering these supplements and know how to administer them? Should she immediately begin getting treatment for the gut problem when she starts chelation therapy? You mentioned it sometimes takes a long time to heal. The Dr. here mentioned it might be wise to test her for food you think that is even necessary due to her history (last 8 months bloated with pain)? It seems obvious that until the mercury load is reduced, her digestive system...enzymes, acids, etc.,will be out of wack. You say it is tricky to treat the gut...and I want to make sure all problems get addressed. The Dr. wants to run a digestive stool analysis. Are there any other tests you would recommend he run? If you think these SanPharma remedies are the most effective, what would you recommend I do if the Dr. has never heard of this protocol? Do you consult in this area?? Thank you VERY much for your time in addressing these issues.

A dry cell analysis is different from a live cell analysis and is usually done at the same sitting. Dry cells are dead cells, so you can't think of them as "live." You could compare the live cell analysis to a physical exam of a living person and the dry cell analysis to an autopsy. They yield different but equally valuable information. The SanPharma remedies may be ordered by any doctor, but not just any doctor will know what to do with them. Training is required. One should not start with the SanPharmas until the mercury is down to a low level as that will prevent them from working. Doctors test for allergies and run digestive stool analyses, and interesting things are found. However, the therapies which are applied based on those results are not curative and do not get to the root of the problem. They are compensatory - enzymes, vitamins, minerals, etc., all of which are well and good in the short run but they do nor rehabilitate the gut. If you remove the mercury and then use the SanPharmas this restores the gut to normal and changes the results of such tests as the digestive analysis and the food allergy tests. If you can't find a doctor who can take you down this path, you are welcome to come to California and see me. One trip should suffice. After that we should be able to handle everything by phone and email. By the way, excuse me for the lateness of my reply. My system malfunctioned and did not alert me to the fact that you had written to me. I just happened to see it three days later.

Since my daughter has not yet taken the DMPS Challenge we do not know yet her level of toxicity....what would you consider to be a "low level" (you mentioned must be achieved before starting SanPharma) or is it different for every person? She has 3 1/2 months of detox ahead of her this summer before she returns to college. The local doctor will be using IV DMPS/Chlorella/DMSA....In your opinion, do you think her mercury load would be reduced enough during that period of time, to begin SanPharma protocol...maybe towards end of summer? She will be studying in Luxembourg next semester, and we hope to make as much progress as possible prior to her departure. I realize that you may not be able to answer these questions...I WILL plan on bringing my daughter to you if we cannot find one in this area familiar with SanPharma the leaky gut is a BIG problem for her.

A low level is less than 3. Of course, when the test is done you will receive a report stating the reference range. I always do the DMPS Challenge Test before beginning detox so I can gauge the level of treatment a person can tolerated and then repeat it at the end to be certain the job is done. I have no way to estimate how much progress your daughter can make in 3.5 months as it depends on where her level is to begin with, how vigorously she is treated, how well she can tolerate treatment, and finally how well she excretes metals on her own (people vary widely in this ability).

When you speak about tolerating treatment...I have read, I believe in several of your articles, about the importance of vitamin C and E in helping to decrease some of the symptoms. Would you suggest IV Vitamin C prior to IV chelation? If so, would that be a reasonable request for the doctor handling the case? This is all a learning experience for me!

You can and should go directly to DMSA if and when it is determined that the mercury level is elevated. No reason to stop on IVs. That is my opinion at any rate.
