The information in this post is my own experience and should not be taken as medical advice. I am not a doctor or healthcare professional.



After a 3 month break for various reasons, I'm back to chelating. This morning I started round 107.
Finally, after 3 years of chelating, I'm almost back to the 12.5 mg ALA, which is the dose I started at.
(Had to drop my dose to 5mg, then to 3mg during my 22 month long dump.)


My progress has been slow, but thinking back over how I was at the height of the dump, I'm a million times better. Even remembering how my brain was last year, I've made good progress.

Last year, my longtime friend since elementary school (and maid of honor at my wedding) asked me to design kitchens for her remotely. (she lives in another state). I was a little scared at the time because I couldn't hold a string of numbers in my head...even a single number. I would have to immediately write that number down and check everything 3 times - even the simplest of additions. Most of the time I couldn't work on a design more than 30 minutes without getting brain fog. Following a conversation was difficult and once my brain "flew out the window", I couldn't understand anything.
I let her know that my bad days were unpredictable and there could be days when I had to stay in bed and couldn't do anything.

I am happy to say that I am now able to keep a string of numbers in my head and I'm able to work longer without getting tired. Designing kitchens is like doing a puzzle and working with numbers...you have a finite wall measurement and you have to get all the variables to fit (sink, appliances, trash cabinet, drawers, etc.).
     I use Floorplanner for a concept design before I draw the final designs. It's not exact, but and doesn't have all the selections I need, but it suffices for a concept.

Now, I have a bad thing and a couple of good things to share.

Just a warning if you have anxiety or PTSD

Last time I posted I had didn't share about an event I had because it was too soon after and would relive it every time I talked about it.
I don't go out much, so I don't wear a mask and only wear one if I absolutely have to because it makes me disoriented. In other words, I my brain flies out the window. Not a good thing when going out by yourself. When I've worn one, it's only been for a short time and/or I've had someone with me.
At the end of December I had to go to the eye doctor and get a new prescription and of course, wearing a mask is required. I knew I had a problem wearing a mask, so I bought a knit one that hung on the ears, but was long like a scarf. I was thinking that since it wasn't tight against my chin it would be less constrictive and be ok. It wasn't.
I'm getting anxious as I tell you this part...
I waited until the last minute to put on my face covering to minimize the wearing time. Once inside I had fill out forms while waiting to be called - maybe about 10 minutes. I couldn't finish the forms.
The assistant or nurse, not sure which, took me in, took my blood pressure (which was really high), taped the mask to my face under my eyes (bad idea) and did some tests on my eyes. The mask was already distracting me and I mentioned I might have missed some... she said I did. Then, I had the Optomap test, which is a series of pictures taken with super bright lights. Bright lights, especially flashing, have been a problem for me. After that, I was put in a dimly lit room to wait for the doctor.
I could feel anxiety coming up and then I couldn't hold it back anymore.
I started hyperventilating and crying uncontrollably and when I breathed in, the cloth covered my mouth and I thought I was suffocating and was (literally) going to die. I know...not logical, but neither is an panic attack.
The doctor came in at the worst of it and I said I was having a panic attack.
She immediately left the room and sent the nurse back in. --__--



Needless to say the lense prescription wasn't good because my eyes were blurry from crying. I had to come back again, get a new test and have them make new lenses .
When I made the new appointment, I let the person know what had happened.
When I went back, she did the preliminary tests outside and I didn't have to wear a face covering. My husband went in with me when I was called in and the doctor was ready and I asked them not to tape the mask. I was also wearing a different mask that sticks out away from your face.
When I finished the appointment and was in the car, I had a meltdown, but at least it was after the eye test and not in the building.
Whew!

I have yet to find a mask/face covering that I can wear without causing me to become dizzier and disoriented (lose my brain). I just ordered another type that is due to arrive this week. Hoping that one suffices.

Now for the good things:
When I though I was going to be without my glasses for awhile while they sent them out to put new lenses in them, I wore my glasses from 2018 and they were perfect. Since then I've noticed that I don't get brain fog in the afternoon/evening.
That is a big plus! The prescription for my glasses that I had been wearing last were completely different from 2018 and 2020 (current), which are exactly the same. Still, the lack of brain fog in the afternoon/evening could just be a coincidence and not caused by my last pair of eyeglasses.

So no more afternoon brain fog is a good thing.
The 2nd good thing is that I realized that my stumbling and lack of co-ordination has a name. It's called Ataxia. (I haven't been diagnosed with it by a doctor, just have the symptoms) I always thought it was just caused by dizziness. It felt like sometimes I was dizzy in my head (the regular way you think) and dizzy/off balance because of my leg muscles, and my head was clear,
Took me 4 years, but hey, better late than never!
So, knowing there was a word for it, I started looking for information on Ataxia. I found a study where they gave 300 mg to 3,000 mg of Coq10 to those with an inherited form of Ataxia and all had improved.
I had been taking 100 mg of Coq10 daily. I decided to try 200 mg in the am and 200 mg in the pm. I've been taking it for two weeks now and my gait problems and dizziness are much less. Hopefully, this will mean less bruises from bumping into walls!

Lastly, I've started taking a drop of Hydroxy B12 and 20 mg of progesterone cream daily and I've been feeling much better and have more energy.
I have taken both B12 and 10 mg progesterone cream in the past, but stopped for awhile because they didn't seem to help.

We shall see. Of course, I have my doctor do lab tests every 6 months to make sure my numbers are ok.

That's enough for now. Back to chelating.

Thanks for stopping by.

Information I've collected about C0VID...

 This post is not meant to be medical advice, as I am not a doctor or medical professional. You can look into the recommendations of the medical doctors mentioned and ask your medical professional if those recommendations will benefit you.



This is the information I've collected from countless hours of watching interviews with doctors  who've treated the virus successfully, as well as reading multiple studies. This is not meant to be medical advice, as I'm not a medical professional.

Please read this information and do your own research, consult your doctor, and have the supplies on hand that you think you'll need. Don't wait until you are ill to decide how you'll treat.


Dr. Vladimir Zelenko who has treated hundreds of high risk covid patients with what is known as the Zelenko Protocol, which is Hydroxychloroquine, zinc and azithromycin. Please read through the whole post. Dr. Vladimir's entire Google docs are at the end outlining what to take for prophylaxis and when sick.


As with anything, check with your doctor if appropriate for your situation. 

Dr. David Brownstein's protocol consists of vitamin C , vitamin D, Vitamin A and a nebulized saline, h2o2, iodine solution.  
Here is Dr. David Brownstein's peer reviewed and published paper.
https://cf5e727d-d02d-4d71-89ff-9fe2d3ad957f.filesusr.com/ugd/adf864_cc5004cfa84a46d3b1a0338d4308c42c.pdf


Dr. Richard Bartlett  has had no deaths treating a minimum of 100 C0VID patients with the inhaled steroid Budesonide. He says this drug stops inflammation, ace 2 uptake( which is the pathway for the virus) and the release of cytokines. I would insist on this, especially if I  had the symptom of  breathing difficulty.
Website  for more info is budesonideworks.com

Lastly, Dr. Richard Bartlett was interviewed on The Highwire with Del Bigtree (Facebook Live, Periscope, ICAN website) and he mentioned gargling with a mouthwash the claims to kill 99+% of bacteria may reduce the viral load IN THE THROAT. Gargling does not resolve C0VID, but it may reduce the viral load in the throat, giving the immune system less virus to fight. I found some reliable information on the internet, which is easily looked up on a search engine, although as with any information that goes against the "approved narrative" , you will have to sift through a lot of propaganda..


Ivermectin, another pharmaceutical that some doctors are having success with. There is a good link at the end of  Dr. Zelenko's recommendations.

What  I have my family taking to stay well:
Vitamin C - 1,000 mg 2 to 3 times a day
500 mg quercetin - Once a day
25-30 mg zinc picolinate once a day (ONLY ON A FULL STOMACH or it causes nausea)
Vitamin D3  - 5,000 iu once a day
K2- 100 mcg once a day
Vitamin A when exposed to large crowds NOT DAILY  (WARNING - VITAMIN A can build up and be toxic to the liver)
*also zinc can get your copper out of whack if you take too much long term.

If I get C0VID, I will increase vitamin C to every 2 or 3 hours (to bowel tolerance)
I will take the amount of zinc and quercetin Dr. Zelenko recommends when sick.
I will follow Dr. Brownstein's protocol in the linked paper above.
I will gargle with a mouthwash that claims to kill 99+% bacteria. 

Please look into what these doctors say for yourself and don't let any virus overtake you before you seek care. 


I also keep a PULSE OXIMETER on hand. It measures your oxygen saturation level in your blood.  A friend in her 60s who had covid said her doctor sent her home with one and said to  if it was call him if it got to 90 or less. (he gave her no other suggestions for treatment). Find a reputable website that explains it. 
I have this pulse oximeter:


This is the quercetin I take. Read any instructions on the back. I only take ONE because each capsule is 500 mg.  (some people take quercetin for allergies and take more)


These are the following brands I take for C, D, zinc and vitamin k2.


One other supplement that needs mentioning, is NAC(N-Acetylcysteine). A study about it helpful in community acquired pneumonia HERE . I have it on hand, but am not taking it due to it being sulfur based and I'm avoiding any food with sulfur and sulfur based supplements while chelating (with the exception of  ALA, which is the chelator I'm using to remove mercury). You can find another Pubmed article HERE.
If you want to do more research on NAC, don't rely on Google. Use Duck Duck Go or another search engine not powered by Google.
This is the NAC I ordered. Read the reviews.


Below are the two Google Docs from Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.

Prophylaxix Google doc

Zelenko Covid-19 Prophylaxis Protocol

Website: Vladimirzelenkomd.com


Prophylaxis is an action taken to prevent or protect against a specified disease.  Greek in origin, from the word "phylax", meaning "to guard" and "watching."  


Low Risk Patients

Young healthy people do not need prophylaxis against Covid 19.  In young and healthy people, this infection causes mild cold-like symptoms.  It is advantageous for these patients to be exposed to Covid-19, build up their antibodies and have their immune system clear the virus.  This will facilitate the development of herd immunity and help prevent future Covid-19 pandemics.  However, if these patients desire prophylaxis against Covid-19, then they should take the protocol noted below.


Moderate Risk Patients

Patients from this category are healthy but have high potential viral-load exposure.  This group includes medical personnel, caregivers of high-risk patients, people who use public transportation, first responders and other essential personnel who are crucial to the continued functioning of society.  These patients should be encouraged to take prophylaxis against Covid-19 in accordance with the protocol noted below.


High Risk Patients

Patients are considered high risk if they are over the age of 45, or if they are younger than 45 but they have comorbidities, that is, they have other health conditions that put them at risk.  These patients have between a 5 to 10% mortality rate if they are infected with Covid-19.  These patients should be strongly encouraged to take prophylaxis against Covid-19 in accordance with the protocol noted below.


Protocol for Low and Moderate Risk Patients:

Elemental Zinc 25mg 1 time a day

Vitamin D 5000iu 1 time a day

Vitamin C 1000mg 1 time a day 

Quercetin 500mg 1 time a day until a safe and efficacious vaccine becomes available

If Quercetin is unavailable, then use Epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) 400mg 1 time a day


Protocol for High Risk Patients:

Elemental Zinc 25mg once a day 

Vitamin D 5000iu 1 time a day

Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) 200mg 1 time a day for 5 days, then 1 time a week until a safe and efficacious vaccine becomes available

If HCQ is unavailable, then use the Protocol for Low and Moderate Risk Patients.\
