I was recently tested for heavy metals. My Mercury is very high and my Lead is off-the-chart high.
Seems that this is common with Lyme yet I cannot find out why.

I had very high mercury, lead was fine. I got my mercury down to normal with daily sauna, glutathione and Vit C Ivs and I stopped eating fish. It took about a year and now my mercury is fine. I dont know if you can get rid of lead that way.  Good luck  D

Hi Woodswalker,

I think one connection is this: The heavy metals are suspected to be at the heart of many chronic illnesses. They seem to be able to "help" the "germs" and yet weaken our immune systems, thus making us more susceptible to infections. The metals are used in various enzyme reactions and in other ways, and interfere with the way things ought to be working. I think lymers are compromised in their health, and the metals are often a part of that picture. Getting rid of the metals can be one way to start "balancing" the body and helping it to become healthier. We are not using IV chelation, but our naturopath (who works in consult with our llmd) is using oral supplements to handle this. We think we are responding, but it makes us feel worse---aggravates our symptoms. We are "too chicken" to do IV chelation because we think our bodies could not handle it. We have chosen the slower, less extreme way to get rid of the metals---at the recomm. of our docs.

Best wishes to you. bablymers mom

I've heard also that critters (including Lyme) are attracted to heavy metals, so maybe they hang out in the same places in the body as the accumulation of metals. I have noticed metal chelators are often included in Lyme detox protocols.
