old member making a comeback

It's been a couple or three years since I have postep due to health concerns from mecury toxicity. I was experiEncing muscle weakness and could not think clearly. I we went to 9 doctors-went to Duke 3 times-and none of them could diagnose me. And you know if the doctor cant diagnose you then he/she can't treat you.
My blood work was and is always normal and ideal.
I finally went to see Dr. Dennis Fera, MD. He uses holistic/alternative therapies. I saw him on March 2nd and he immediatly started a chelation program with me consisting of an IV of DMPS and a herbal product made from algae. I can't state in words the neurological improvement I have made. It's stunning.
More on that some other time.
I am happy to report I still have my camaros. My pride and joy- 68 ss NHRA ss/c 396 4 speed, Everett's former 68 350 braclet car, my 68 B/S 396 4 speed and a 67 project. And I stI'll have my 68 Caprice O/SA 327 and my 72 shortbed Chevy. They all need some work and time and I plan on running in 2016.

Re: old member making a comeback

Michael,

Thanks for sharing your positive holistic experience. We really need to spread the word and get everyone off of meds that only seek to treat the symptoms and not the problem.

Welcome back. Mercury poisoning wow. Was your exposure from your local environment, career related contact to it or from shell/fish in your diet?

Welcome back, Michael! I'm sure you'll recognize many of the faces still on here.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
