Mercury. It’s never just one thing. It’s never just mercury when it comes to slow intoxication. Just like an advanced airplane our body has redundant systems to compensate for errors and weaknesses. As most air crash investigations show – when disaster happens it is usually due to multiple systems failing at the same time. One of these weaknesses for me seems to have been liver function.
A strong healthy liver is our most important detox ally. Naturally, I’ve been studying various liver “diseases” and recently I came across one that sounds very interesting: Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). It is an “immune-mediated chronic disease associated with progressive intrahepatic cholestasis. Although the pathogenesis of PBC remains incompletely understood, the accumulation of endogenous hydrophobic bile acids due to destruction of small bile ducts is thought to promote the progression of liver cell injury and finally lead to hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis.”
Intrahepatic cholestasis is basically liver stagnation, thick bile, bile duct inflammation which causes scarring, etc. “Normally, bile acids flow from your liver to your gut to help you digest food. In ICP, the bile acids do not flow properly and build up in your body instead.” They build up and cause systemic inflammation.
So basically, as we already clearly know, systemic inflammation and liver congestion is what surmounts to lowered detox capacity, massive body burden, makes immune system very reactive and keeps us stuck in micro dosing OSR or any other chelators.
This is what makes me believe that it is not always mercury that starts the forest fire but mercury accumulates and further fans it like hell. It is also why chelation therapy alone will not fully restore our health.
Now that I wind everything back I clearly remember my father suffering from similar symptoms, including, jaundice, insomnia, CNS dis-regulation but unfortunately he didn’t know anything about this so he chelated himself with alcohol all the way to his grave. Seems like the genetic component is very strong but it’s not a death sentence if we learn how to unwind this mess and manage our health later. Detox is never just detoxing one component like mercury. True detox is peeling all the layers, reducing the burden and encouraging flow until you get to the point where your body is able to manage on its own.
