Five Amazing Ways Qigong is Helping Me With Mercury Chelation – No One Believes Me!

“What is the best supplement you took to help you with mercury chelation?” People are usually baffled when I tell them that the best ever, most useful thing I took was not a supplement at all. It was Qigong – a powerful self healing method which is absolutely FREE to practice on daily basis. Thanks to this wonderful practice I was able to chelate heavy metals (Andrew Cutler protocol) without any adrenal support and without any major setbacks.

The type of Qigong that I do is super simple. Even a child a can do it because it doesn’t require any complicated moves as what you may see on TV or Thai Chi classes. This form of QiGong was developed thousands of years ago in the mountains of ancient China and is focused on one thing – accumulation and transformation of vital energy which is then used to fuel the healing reactor within.

All is required is a proper technique and patience. Because the effects are so subtle it is time consuming. Qi is energy, Gong is work. You’ll need to put in the work to feel results. But rest easy, once you get used to it you’ll look forward to it.

Why I Fell in Love with Qigong During Mercury Chelation

1. Energy is Intelligent

Mercury and other heavy metals impact our health in a variety and very unpredictable ways. This is why it is such a tough thing to diagnose based on the symptoms alone. Qigong took the guessing game out of equation by orchestrating infinite pieces of information, ushering energy to correct locations, nourishing cells that can not be reached with nutrients, connecting all things and all dimensions in the most perfect possible way to promote healing. It really is true that qi energy is intelligent. I can [continue reading…]

How SIBO, Dysbiosis, Candida and Other Gut Issues Can Cause Insomnia

Most of us are on a lookout for toxins in our food and environment but did you know that our gut itself can produce powerful germs that can wreak havoc on our sleep and health? That’s right, our own (endogenous) tiny bacteria can be a hidden enemy within and we may never even suspect that our major symptoms like insomnia is coming  directly from our gut.

In this article you’ll learn that sleep is highly dependent on our  gut’s microbes. An imbalance or depletion of our beneficial bacterial flora (microbiota) can result in SIBO, candida, dysbiosis, mast cell activation (MCAS) and many other gut issues that can, in turn contribute to serious disease, brain fog and chronic sleep disorders.

Mighty Powerful Tiny Organisms Affect our Sleep

These “endogenous” toxins can be released by unfriendly microbes in our intestinal tract. The name itself gives a clue as to their nature: growing or originating from within an organism. Our bacteria is hungry and it too likes to eat and eliminate waste just as we do, creating toxins that can affect our brain and all major organs.

Henry Lin from University of California’s Keck School of Medicine, claims that a bacterial activity in the small intestine (a normally bacteria-free region), caused by “renegade” bacteria migrating from the large intestine, triggers a response in the immune and nervous system that can lead to insomnia, anxiety, depression and [continue reading…]

Mast Cells (MCAS), Sulfur, Thiol, CBS Gene and Mercury Connection?

Are you one of the thousands of people who are trying to navigate a plethora of symptoms and exploring a connection between your immunity, genetics, and heavy metals like mercury? My world flipped downside up once I realized that the mechanism behind most of my misery is a so called “mast cell activation disorder” (MCAS), the root cause behind all of it is mercury and sulfur thiols are the suckers that inflicts most of the pain.

My MCAS symptoms are not related to skin. Apparently, most MCAS disorders do not manifest outwardly on skin but instead produce a plethora of symptoms internally. This is why this darn thing is so difficult to diagnose and can takes years before one actually arrives to this conclusion. At this point I invite you to take my finding as observations and not as medical facts. If you have done some of your own research and grappled with these concepts for a while you might find some of this useful.

In this article I raise four questions:

1. What is mast cell and mercury connection?

2. What is sulfur thiol to mercury connection?

3. How sulfur rich foods can lead to a variety of symptoms because of mast cell activation?

4. What are best supplements to support yourself in this condition?

Background

There is a growing awareness that sulfur can cause trouble for some portion of the populous. Most people believe that this is due to their “genetic weaknesses” for sulfur metabolism or those low in B6 and/or molybdenum. But reality is that the problem hides elsewhere. Something else is activating those gene mutations and causing out methylation issues and that “something” is heavy metals.

I have some genetic variations in MTHFR, CBS and COMT genes. As you know CBS if the one that has to do with sulfur pathways. Before I realized that I’m dealing with mercury toxicity I was studying up epigenetics and constantly tinkering with my methylation pathways. All my experiments backfired and made me feel worse so I had to look deeper. Suffering from a variety of symptoms I could not put the dots together until I finally figured out that they are all related to heavy metal induced organ toxicity. And only after about two more years I realized that almost all of them are related to [continue reading…]

MegaSporeBiotic (Soil Based Biotic) Review for Insomnia and Gut Function – WARNING!

It is safe to say that Megasporebiotic has caused major relapse of old symptoms like insomnia and serious gut issues. This was an absolute shock to me and caused me a tremendous amount of suffering. This was an experiment gone really bad!

In this video I review this “highly praised” soil based biotic product and detail my experiment with day by day developments. Below this video are my further observations and updates which I encourage you to read to get the full picture.

I really should have listened to the folks in the comments on the FixYourGut site but it was too late. By the time I had found those negative reviews my MegaSporeBiotic was already on the way and I was determined to try it anyways.

As you learned from my video I initially had a very positive reaction and remained hopeful. Better, faster digestion, noticeable improvement in appetite, less fatigue coming from my abdomen all cheered me on to continue. But just a couple of weeks later it was already stressing my heart causing palpitations, feeling hot and stressed at night, poor mood, and increased brain fog. Insomnia was slowly creeping in and then hit really hard.

Worst part was is that it is taking me what seems like forever to recover my previous state of sleep and gut function. Things are just not right. I’m fighting a constant [continue reading…]

Heavy Metal Detox Mistakes

This video was inspired by some personal regrets and catastrophic stories I had heard from the heavy metals detox community. If you are considering detoxing from heavy metals, especially mercury (because of amalgam fillings, fish consumption or any other source) you must watch this video and avoid these painful, sometimes even faithful mistakes.

In this video I’ll share science as to why some people get toxic and why some don’t, discuss wrong protocols, wrong detox agents, DMPS challenge test, supplements, food sensitivities and [continue reading…]

Experiments With Chaga Mushroom for Sleep, Adrenal Fatigue and Digestion

Chaga was my biggest discovery of the year. Not because I didn’t know about it but because it was such a good fit for my condition. It plugged the whole on one of the crucial symptoms that was slowing down my recovery. It is a definite winner and a definite keeper which is very rare for me because I get a paradoxical reaction to most supplements. In fact, I do not even tolerate other medicinal mushrooms like Reishi, Cordysceps or Lion’s Mane.

Please keep in mind, my results are in the backdrop of mercury toxicity, adrenal fatigue and digestion issues, food sensitivities and of course – major sleep issues. These were all tested by this wonder mushroom.

*If you’d rather watch my video report on Youtube you can find it here.

In case you are just getting acquainted with Chaga it hosts a few impressive health benefits:

  • enhances the immune system  (much needed in an insomnia exhausted body);
  • powerful antioxidant (perfect for any inflammatory processes that could be causing sleep issues);
  • digestion aid (perfect to take the load of digestion at night);
  • powerful antiviral action;
  • balances blood sugar (perfect for stabilizing nigh time sugar in case it is sugar spikes that jolts one from deep sleep).

When it comes to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) it is said that [continue reading…]

Why Sleep Aid Supplements Do Not Work for Insomnia

Are you one of the people who has tried every calming supplement and sleep aid there is but it had virtually no effect on your insomnia? These are often sold as “Here’s something that will help calm down your overreactive brain: Valerian, Skull Cap, L-Theanine, GABA, Magnessium, 5HTP, Glycine, Passionflower, Hops, Chamomile and many others. If you answered yes then your root cause hides elsewhere and this article will help you steer in the right direction.

The reason I often refer to Eastern medicine is because it believes that the whole is greater than the sum of all parts. If the body is not balanced, illnesses and disease can occur. In order to appreciate this better and improve my sleep I had to self-educate on a ton of things. Here are some key concepts that will help you understand why you might be experiencing lots of frustration with common sleep aids.

Homeostasis – The Great Balancing Act

Think of your body as a 24 hour balancing act. You are programmed to survive in an inner changing internal and external environment. For example, you eating and enjoying a movie but what is your body doing that very moment? It is performing a complex set of procedures to digest, regulate temperature, blood pressure, balance out PH and sugars, regenerate muscles, detox and hundreds of other functions all the same time! Meanwhile, oblivious to all the multiple processes taking place inside you are relaxing on your sofa.

All living organisms, from plants to hamsters to people, must regulate their internal environment to process energy in order to survive. This is what is called Homeostasis – the ability to maintain a balance. One of the components [continue reading…]

Two Year Mercury Detox Progress Report

The year has whizzed by fast but improvements are rather shallow from my previous one year report. It seems like at least half of the year I was at the peak of the dump phase. At times I was not only struggling to cope with rounds but also felt like sliding backwards.  Even now I’m not sure the dump is over.

I’ve done 84 rounds in total by now. A year ago I was at these chelator doses:  12.5 DMPS/50 ALA. Now I’m at 12.5 DMPS (can handle more but with more symptoms) and 75 ALA.  25 mg seems like a miserable increase in one year. Also need to note that my overall tolerance of DMPS has not increased.

Another year of numerous supplement experiments and numerous failures. I think from now on I’m done with experimenting with new stuff. I’d rather have humble gains than setbacks due to my attempts to make things “go faster.”

Improvements

  • Sleep is getting deeper and better. A number of nights of sleeping through the night are still rear but increasing.
  • Energy levels are at a point where I’m able to do longer hikes and can manage moderate exercise without feeling the effects the next day.
  • Alcohol tolerance. I’m not a big party guy but sometimes I’m unable to avoid booze because the nature of my work demands of me to be [continue reading…]

Travel Insomnia: Are Your Having Energy Sex With Your Hotel Neighbor?

Not sure about you but I can not sleep while having sex. This seems to be true even with energy exchange with one’s hotel neighbor. This video was recorded during a stay at a hotel where I had insomnia. It is about human energy field and how we unawarely share it with others while we sleep.

In addition to what I share with you below I’d like to point out that according to the Heart Math Institute:

“The heart is the most powerful source of electromagnetic energy in the human body, producing the largest rhythmic electromagnetic field of any of the body’s organs. The heart’s electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain. This field, measured in the form of an electrocardiogram (ECG), can be detected anywhere on the surface of the body. Furthermore, the magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 100 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain and can be detected up to 3 feet away from the body, in all directions, using SQUID-based magnetometers.”

This is really fascinating and I wonder whether the quality of the sleep also depends on how congruent your heart’s frequency is either with your partner or even the neighbor across the wall. What I mean is if two people emitting different vibrations based on their emotions (for example sad vs. appreciation) whether this could cause such a dissonance that a more sensitive person would develop insomnia while sharing that energy field with another person.

Anyways, if you have some experiences of your own, I’d love for you to share in the comments below after you [continue reading…]

Can Amanita Muscaria Mushroom Help With Sleep?

Amanita Muscaria (Fly Agaric) has always been one of those wonder mushrooms for me. I’ve been fascinated with its beauty ever since I was a kid growing up in Lithuania. While not considered to be an edible mushroom, I’ve heard plenty of stories of using it as medicine (joint inflamation) or people pickling them for winter after careful preparation like boiling and pouring out the “toxic” water. Personally, I was interested in one thing only – can this queen of the forest help me sleep better tonight.

There are stories of shamanic use in Siberia, stories of inner journeys and strange dreams, stories of finding peace and tranquility, healing insights, etc. Personally, I didn’t experience any of them. The mushroom didn’t speak to me, didn’t provide any insights, all it did was induce massive insomnia for several weeks afterwards.

Why I Felt Amanita Mushroom Can Help With Insomnia

Amanita has two active compouds: muscimol and ibutenic acid. Muscimol is a very strong GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) receptor agonist. Simply put it help the brain to calm down and relax. This is how various “GABAergic” supplements like L-Theanine, valerian, passioflower, skullcap and many others work – they increase GABA and inhibit the stimulating effects of glutamate and stress.

So muscimol is what got me curious. Muscimol is what made me so hopeful. Muscimol is what got me experimenting. There’s only one problem: muscimol has to be converted by our liver and it has to be converted from ibutenic acid, which is that second psycho-active ingredient of the Amanitas. Ibutenic acid happens to be a very potent neuro stimulant. As wikipedia says “It is a conformationally-restricted analogue of the neurotransmitter glutamate, and due to its structural similarity to this neurotransmitter, acts as a non-selective glutamate receptor agonist. ” Ibutenic acid is the complete opposite of muscimol.

The idea is simple: treat the mushroom by drying it, store it in some cool place for three months and then make tea. This is supposed to help convert ibutenic acid into muscimol. A process, otherwise known as decarboxylation. I figured once the mushroom is decarboxylated I’ll have nothing but pure goodness of GABA rich muscimol and it should knock me out at night real good.

Who Benefits, Who Doesn’t

I’m guessing that one group of people who feel the benefits of the mushroom the most are the ones that have rather turbulent minds. When they first try Amanita they may report a great sense of tranquility. I am guessing this happens because of the stark contrast between their “normal” self and the Amanita induced calmness. However, if one is an avid meditator or QiGong practitioner (induces GABA states), Amanita may do nothing for you other than make you feel a bit sedated. 

The second group are the ones that brave high doses. These are the ones that report some wild trips but you don’t hear about the rest of the 90% that either had a sleepless night, felt very sick or ended up in a hospital with symptoms of acute poisoning.
