Life, too, can be the cause of those. I'm not saying there's no chance that your fillings caused that but most people have that anyway so don't get your hopes up too much just to have another test show the problem lies elsewhere.
10 fillings? Ow.

Ebby.....you are treating candida, right?
I recently went through a heavy metal detox (plan on doing more), and I was tested for various metals and it came back positive for mercury, pcb's, copper, and isopropyl alcohol.
At least you now have a point of reference to work from, Ebby, and it sounds as if your dentist at least knows what the heck he is doing. Congrats on that. Most doctors and dentists are totally ignorant of these issues.
I've been doing tons of online research and have found all kinds of information on pcb poisoning and acne conditions, too.

Blackbirdbeatle: That's interesting that it only took 3 weeks of cilantro to take your levels down--that's great! I did read something about cilantro being effective for this; I started taking the concentrate version two weeks ago; maybe that will give me a jumpstart on the IV therapy.
Denise: Yes, I'm also treating for candida; on your advise, I've been using Primal Defense---I really like the stuff! Positive for isopropyl alcohol?? Wow, I didn't know that could be toxic!!
Paulandrei: Yep, everything that Blackbirdbeatle stated are definitely sources of these metals. In addition, the doc said cosmetics are big contributor for these toxins.

I hope you get well soon.
Current Skin-Care Regimen (A work in progress):
Gentle wash with DKR cleanser
Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)
DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil (The lotion alone wasn't hydrating enough)
Skin 79 Korean BB Cream (excellent stuff)
Gentle Wash with DKR Cleanser
Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (Following Dan's Regimen)
DKR Lotion + A squirt of Argan or Grapeseed oil

Also they failed to mention the cheapest and most effective way of getting rid of heavy metals. Cilantro. Cost: 5.00 Time: 2-3 weeks. You want to make it more effective than add NAC or ALA.
I don't blame them for not putting in cilantro as a comparison or giving more accurate results of IV chelation because in the end they are a business. Can't sell clay when everyone knows about the 1.50 bundle of cilantro at their supermarket.

Preventive effect of Coriandrum sativum (Chinese parsley) on localized lead deposition in ICR mice.

The preventive effect of Coriandrum sativum, Fam. UMBELLIFERAE (Chinese parsley) on lead deposition was investigated in male ICR mice given lead (1000 ppm) as lead acetate trihydrate in drinking water for 32 days. Administration of Chinese parsley to mice by gastric intubation was performed for 25 days from day 7 after the start of lead exposure up to the end of the experiment. The mice were then sacrificed for comparison of lead distribution. The lead reached its highest concentration in the femur but localized lead deposition in the femur was significantly decreased by meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA), a chelating agent used as a positive control to validate this experimental model. Administration of Chinese parsley also significantly decreased lead deposition in the femur and severe lead-induced injury in the kidneys. In addition, urinary excretion of delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) which is known to increase with lead intake was significantly decreased after administration of Chinese parsley. The MeOH extract of Chinese parsley also reduced lead-induced inhibition of delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) activity in vitro. These results suggest that Chinese parsley has suppressive activity on lead deposition, probably resulting from the chelation of lead by some substances contained in Chinese parsley.
The theory is that when you do heavy metal detoxing you will never eliminate all of it because lead acts as calcium would and will integrate itself into growing bone. So if there is something that is actually capable of leaching lead from your bones you would need more calcium, collagen, etc to help rebuild them. So in general it sounds like we should take more cilantro to prevent our bones from being partially composed of heavy metals.
Role of mercury (Hg) in resistant infections & effective treatment of Chlamydia trachomatis and Herpes family viral infections (and potential treatment for cancer) by removing localized Hg deposits with Chinese parsley and delivering effective antibiotics using various drug uptake enhancement methods.
Omura Y, Beckman SL.
Heart Disease Research Foundation, New York, USA.
The authors found that antibiotics used to treat various infections often were ineffective in the presence of abnormal localized deposits of heavy metals like Hg and Pb, which were often observed to co-exist with Chlamydia trachomatis, Herpes Simplex Types I & II, Cytomegalovirus(CMV), and other micro-organisms. Our earlier research revealed that despite rigorous treatment with antibiotics together with various drug uptake enhancement techniques, subjects who had been treated for Chlamydia trachomatis infections, seemingly successfully with disappearance of their symptoms, were often experiencing recurrences within several months after completion of their treatment despite taking precautions against reinfection. Careful examination of the entire body of these symptom-free patients with the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test revealed that the Chlamydia trachomatis had retreated to 3 approximately 5 hiding places with localized increase in uric acid levels: 1) sublingual caruncle, 2) a small round area in the right and/or left axillae, 3) the genitals (Corona Glandis area of the Glans Penis at the Fossa Navicularis of the urethra in the male, and near the orifice of the urethra in the female), 4) Insulin-like Growth Factor positive horizontal lines, particularly above and below the knees, 5) the maxillary, ethmoid and frontal sinuses and the horizontal lines at the base of the nostrils (particularly small areas where Insulin-like Growth Factors exist). We found that all these areas contain Insulin-like Growth Factors I & II which are reduced in the presence of infection. Even when drug uptake of antibiotics was selectively increased in these 3 approximately 5 areas by various drug uptake enhancement methods developed by the 1st author, still the infection persisted. In the spring of 1995, use of Chinese parsley for successful elimination of Hg deposits existing in various organs of the first author as the result of the decay of radioactive Thallium 201 injected for cardiac SPECT, was accidentally discovered after eating Vietnamese soup, which happened to contain Chinese parsley, also called cilantro. We also found Chinese parsley accelerates the excretion of Hg, Pb, and A1 from the body though the urine. Our subjects were given a course of antibiotics (Doxycycline for Chlamydia trachomatis infection) or anti-viral agents (EPA with DHA for Herpes Family Viruses) together with Chinese parsley. Since these vegetable/herbs were eaten, the amount of effective substance absorbed varied and some people did not like the taste of these relatively large amounts of either cooked or raw parsley or its juice, but together with effective antibiotics delivered by drug uptake enhancement methods to the infected areas, the substances worked synergistically, rapidly reducing the generalized symptoms and infection. The micro-organisms retreated to the 3 approximately 5 areas listed above where, with continued treatment, they were significantly reduced, but not completely eliminated. Because of these problems, a pharmaceutical company was asked to produce a Chinese parsley table containing a controlled amount in a highly absorbable form. When 11 subjects were treated with Doxycycline for Chlamydia trachomatis infection, or anti-viral agents (EPA with DHA) for Herpes Family Viruses, drug uptake enhancement methods to selectively increase delivery of the drugs to the affected areas, and Chinese parsley tablets to remove the heavy metal deposits, the last traces of the infections and clinical symptoms disappeared completely. Therefore we hypothesized that the infectious micro-organisms mentioned above, somehow utilize the Hg or Pb to protect themselves from what would otherwise be effective antibiotics, and/or that heavy metal deposits in some way make antibiotics ineffective. Since the micro-organisms retreat to areas in which Insulin-like Growth Factors I & II normally exist, they may be utilizing them for their own growth and multiplication. http://www.ncbi.nlm....st_uids=8686573
Anyone know if cilantro is as effective or more so than those foot detox pads?
Stage 1 (Treatment):
* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)
* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.
Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002
* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)
* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.
Stage 3 (Correction):
* 1/18/08 Ultimate Colon Cleanse (30 day program)
* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).
* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

Search the net on clay and metal toxicity, goto curezone.com and find the magnetic clay forum or bowel cleanse forum. Hell theres tons of places to go...
http://www.eytonsear...ychemistry.html is a good source of information.
People have cured many of there skin ailments with clay, hard to believe i know, but the evidence is building due to soooooo many sights claiming similar things and so many testimonials. Theres usually over 1000 people on at any given time on curezone, tells you something

I'm not saying that the clay doesn't work great but I really don't want to pay 50.00 American to get the same results as I would from 5.00 worth of cilantro.

I'm not sure how true or untrue it is (cilantro not removing the heavy metals from the body fully), but I do know that chelation therapy is extremely hard on the kidneys.
