Is While Willow Bark on your radar?
If not, you might want to give it a look. It might be helpful to have in your arsenal of pain relief and support products.
It comes in many forms and has qualities to support the body in a number of ways. It might be a resource to research and get to know.
As with most herbal remedies, the formal research is lacking and so it is not recognized by the FDA as a remedy, cure or mitigating substance. To others it is known as "Nature's Aspirin."
Toxicity in a coffee maker?
Apparently it is not so uncommon.
I consider myself to be extremely careful about consuming poisons after nearly 40 years of dealing with metals toxicity, but when it came to buying a coffee maker I went right back to my old habits, never considering toxicity. Although I did do extensive research, health was not a consideration until a savvy friend reminded me about the plastic parts in coffee makers and the dangers they can hold. Even with the reminder, I failed to do the right research.
I bought a $300 unit, hoping for the best when it came to the use of plastic parts. Then, as soon as I opened the box, there it was, right inside the lid was the California Proposition 65 warning.
If you are not from California you might not have heard of Proposition 65 and even if you are from California it may mean little to you. Prop. 65, as it is called, involves higher standards for products and materials than the FDA requires. This means that the amounts of poisons and toxicity is reduced if goods are sold in the State or it must carry a warning. It is law only in California, but because manufacturers do not want to produce two types of goods, they often upgrade or tag all of their goods to comply with California law.
The Prop. 65 warning on my new coffee maker says out loud, “Buy at Your Own Risk.” Even though the FDA thinks you will be fine, the State of California does not. Meeting California requirements does not mean that the item is non-toxic. It means only that the levels of toxicity have been lowered below the federal regulations. The warning itself tells you that the product exceeds even California limits. Truthfully, neither set of regulations will keep you as safe as it should.
So what does the warning apply to in the world of coffee makers? It is yet, unknown. I wrote the manufacturer to ask precisely what aspect of the machine do not comply with California law. It is not easy to get an answer to such a question and will likely take days or weeks for a response. If you go this route, the response needs to be in writing. If you are told that the manufacturer complies with all FDA regulations, you are in trouble. That is completely unsatisfactory and to a metals contaminated person, that answer is as good as a no.
Instead of waiting for the response, I’m making the grown up decision to return my luxury coffee maker because my health is a priority. After years of illness, why would I intentionally put 2 to 4 cups of poison into my body each and every day?
If you are shopping, consider a few of these highlights of the decision making process. All plastic parts contain toxicity. This includes those plastic pods for single cup coffee makers. Many will say they are BPA free and that is good because BPA is a known carcinogen. The problem is that BPA was replace with a formula change and who knows what is in the replacement. Heating plastic allows the toxicity to leach, so 180 degrees on plastic every day of your life might not be a great idea…even though everyone else is doing it.
Another concern is aluminum. There is really no aluminum product that is fit for food service. That includes aluminum foil and cans. You are just giving Alzheimer’s the greatest of opportunities.
Then there is the issue of bacteria that can grow in coffee makers. It never occurred to me, but it did to my savvy friend who knew that water lines can grow mold. Then there are all of those dark, warm and wet spots that can easily harbor bacteria. As it turns out there are studies that say your coffee pot and your bathroom might tie for bacteria growth.
Finally, there is coffee itself. You really don’t need a dose of pesticide each and every day even if you are the picture of health. Organic beans are the start of a safe cup of coffee.
The options seem to be stainless steel and lead-free glass. That means pour over models, presses and percolators.
No bells. No whistles.
If your metals poisoning
was from dentistry, a decision about what to do
after amalgam removal might be in your future.
Can an implant be safe?
The decision to use implants for those metals poisoned can be a scary thought. We worry about the possibility of more metals leaching toxicity into our bodies or the harboring of bacteria that can cause low-grade infections.
The reality is that most of us became poisoned through dentistry. A mouthful of mercury laden, amalgam fillings usually means ongoing dental visits for repairs, removal and secondary fixes. Emotionally and financially we're drained.
In the end, the decision is yours and only your research will give you the answer. I did my research and in the end chose a zirconium implant over titanium. There was controversy among dentists and I will share that debate with you.
Both products are highly regarded. Because titanium is stronger there is great cause to use them, especially in molars. Zirconium does not have the strength of titanium, but it is a very successful product.
My IAOMT* dentist, who does not do implants was zirconium adamant. My dentist doing the implant was in favor of titanium. I finally asked why my IAOMT dentist preferred zirconium and he explained that although he does not install them, he does remove them for metals people who have shown a sensitivity to them.
That was Decision Made.
*An IAOMT dentist is a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. They have committed to using clean dentistry and do not use mercury. Their practices include the safe removal of mercury fillings.
I put this in front of you because You are a healer and you are learning to heal yourself. Sometimes we wonder what this nightmare of metals poisoning is all about. That I cannot answer, but I do know that you are chosen to understand and to make change.
Undoing heavy metals can be an ugly road, but if you can see the big picture and know that you will be different, even magnificent, when it is over, it may be worth the journey. You will never be the same. Make it what you will.
Counterfeit NBMI is still
being sold as the real thing
Today I was send an article authored by Dr. Sircus, dated 11/12/19. He published what appears to be a very comprehensive report on Dr. Boyd Haley's NBMI metals chelator. After reading the article I contacted the company to verify some key points. My personal conclusion is that this article, although highly factual, may very well be nothing more than an advertisement for counterfeit NBMI.
Note: NBMI has had several name changes over the years. You may know it by Irminix, OSR or Emeramide.
The article states:
Dr. Boyd Haley’s NBMI is available for those contaminated by mercury and other heavy metals. As of this date, it is available for compassionate use only. The application process can be lengthy for some countries and in others it is very simple or unnecessary. The product is currently provided for free with a fee of $750 for application processing.
A less expensive source ships from the Far East and the United States. Their price for 5/10/20g is USD150/220/350. Mob./Whatsapp/Telegram: +86 186 6823 5107 https://www.fandachem.com/ Use of a sensitive scale is suggested with use.
It was a patient of mine who highly recommended this source and put me back in touch with Dr. Haley and his excellent research, after many years of being out of touch. The chelation area of medicine is highly controversial, competitive and confusing but now I feel absolutely confident I am presenting the best and safest chelator".
My Emeramed source from the Board of Directors clearly tells me that Dr. Haley does not know the author and that the product, is without doubt, counterfeit. They have documented reports of side effects, of which NBMI has zero.
My question has always been, why isn't the FDA stopping the trafficking of the counterfeit product in the USA. Here is the response from Emeramed.
"We have repeatedly asked the FDA to do their job, but so far they have refused. They say since the product is labeled not for human consumption they can not do anything. Boyd (Dr. Haley) asked if he could sell his product with the same label and they said they would put him in jail.
The compound may or may not contain any active ingredient. Boyd (Dr. Haley) does get calls or how to take it and why they got sick etc. The Company was sent an adverse reaction report from a person in the EU, but when he inquired as the source of the product he found out they were having adverse reactions to the fake OSR not our compound which remains classified as an unapproved drug and has not had even a single serious adverse reaction reported."
The article by Dr. Sircus clearly endorses the counterfeit product. To clarify and reinforce, this is not NBMI, OSR or any derivative of Emeramed's product. What you've heard about the Emeramed product being sold from China is simply untrue.
It's on your food and you don't know it
because growers are not mandated
to disclose poison
while organic growers have a higher standard.
It's curious that the US subsidies are available for these kinds of poisons to be used.
You can easily find this poison used on your corn, soybeans, nuts, Brussels sprouts, cranberries, broccoli, cauliflower and golf course turf among other things. The damage to humans is known and disregarded.
Here is what the EPA has to say about it.
"Using Chlorpyrifos Products Safely
The current chlorpyrifos labels require workers handling and applying chlorpyrifos to wear additional personal protective equipment (chemical resistant gloves, coveralls, respirators), and restricting entry into treated fields for 24 hours up to five days.
Chlorpyrifos can cause cholinesterase inhibition in humans at high enough doses; that is, it can overstimulate the nervous system causing nausea, dizziness, confusion, and at very high exposures (e.g., accidents or major spills), respiratory paralysis and death."

We’re humans. We’ve learned to love the easy fix. When it comes to diets it’s quite attractive to learn that you can trick your body into losing weight in a number of ways, but don’t forget, new diets sell books. Books make money. Weight loss is an industry and just like everything else, it’s all about marketing. Keep hold of your common sense when you decide to find a ‘diet’ that suits you.
Diets that restrict the basics of fruits and vegetables should frighten you. These are the building blocks of your body. When you deny your body the ability to refuel, it will find any resources stored in your body to utilize. That can mean pulling from muscle and tissue to fulfill your needs to operated smoothly.
The earth was meant to provide food for the body. Look to food in its whole and natural condition for your best resources. Vegetables, fruits, fish and animal protein in their cleanest state cannot be improved by adding poisons, antibiotics, by processing or boxing. Try an earth diet.
Note to those poisoned or metals toxic: If you have an excess of metals stored in your body you might have found it hard to lose weight or you might have seen unusual gain. Yes, you've probably slowed down and so are burning fewer calories, but another thing that happens with metals toxicity is that your body will actually create fat cells to store toxicity if the burden becomes too high. It won't drop them until it is safe, so you are kind of stuck with those extra pounds for a time.
Most of us who have randomly gained from metals, have tried over and over to lose the pounds. When it doesn't happen we get desperate and try almost anything. In the end, we have to remember that keeping the body alert and healthy is key. The pounds are not always the priority.
Pain, inflammation and disease feast on chemicals and poisons. If you are attempting to clean up your life and clean up your body, knowing these two simple online resources will be a big help. Using these tools to find personal care products that are cleanest will help relieve your body of the toxicity load it is forced to detox each and every day.
EWG.org, and it’s sub-group Skin Deep, is a research group that delves into product safety, metals, water safety, healthy homes, healthy diets and many other areas that will help you stay safe. They rate products from 1-10 and you can easily see where to cut back on poisons.
Think Dirty is an app that offers manufacturers the opportunity to partner with them and present safe product to you. It can read barcodes on 1,738,070 products. This allows you to choose shampoo, hair color, cosmetics, hand sanitizers, sunscreen, baby products, nail polish and cleaning supplies that register as low as zero in toxicity rather than commercial products that easily climb to ten.
Making the switch to clean products is more of a journey than a line in the sand. You learn as you go and slowly your life cleans up. What you will find for sure is that clean products are different. They don’t seem usual, but once you learn to love them, there is no going back.
You will also find that scents and lathering are very different. The chemicals that create those elements are usually highly toxic. Lastly, you should not expect your new products to last years and years in the cupboard. Clean products are not laden with the chemicals that make them shelf stable for extended periods. Instead they feed your body through your skin and scalp which means the freshness is important.
Yes we live in a toxic world and yes this is just one small way to improve conditions for your body, but why not? Once you know, the responsibility to stop the casual use of poison in your life, for your own body, for others and for the earth in general is now your responsibility.
Suffering the symptoms of mercury toxicity means
making important health decisions. Most of us are not prepared to make those decisions on our own and Western medicine is just not prepared with the answers yet.
This overview, although lengthy, is delivered simply and in great detail. It will explain a lot about mercury toxicity and why the use of NBMI will help.
If you are mercury poisoned, you have likely heard of Emeramed’s, NBMI, It is the metals chelator that is currently in FDA trials and holds the most promise for those suffering the many symptoms of mercury toxicity. Although the video is long and includes the science involved, it is explained simply and completely by Dr. Boyd Haley, the creator of the compound.
While the public waits for NBMI to become available, there are many other drugs provided as chelators. None are as efficient or as effective and all have side effects that are serious and can be damaging to the body.
In contrast, NBMI, seems to be the right fit for all metals toxicity. Although it has an affinity for mercury, it will chelate to other metals as they become available. The fact that NBMI will not drop metals once they are chelated, is a huge factor in making a decision to use NBMI when it becomes available. Other products can attach and drop metals back into the bloodstream, causing the side effects that began the initial symptoms.
Another very important difference between NBMI and other chelators is that NBMI exits the body via the colon and not the kidneys, thereby sparing your organs further damage. NBMI crosses the blood brain barrier, which most other options cannot do. Also, it does not deplete the body of essential minerals in the process of clearing metals.
As of this writing, NBMI is only available through compassionate use programs. That option requires a medical doctor to apply to the FDA, or the equivalent counterparts in countries outside of the US. The application process is involved and outside of the office visit scope for most doctors. The application information is available at emeramed.com.
