Back in late November, I wrote about the improvement I experienced beginning in early October, and which mostly continues even today. I attributed that improvement to the FIR sauna, mainly because it was the nearest major change in my treatments. Now I'm seriously questioning if the DMSA-based heavy metal detox regimen that I did in September wasn't a factor. I'd previously disregarded the importance of heavy metal detox because I simply didn't know much about it. I had reluctantly agreed to a month-long detox protocol only at the insistence of Dr. W.
It's interesting to note now that the heavy metal detox was even closer in time to the beginning of my improvement. Whereas I started the sauna treatments in early August, I began the heavy metal detox in early September and completed the protocol just as my improvements were beginning in early October, 2012. Coincidence?
I'll eventually learn more about how critical the detox protocol was to my improvement. According to Dr. Yakso, there is much more detoxification to be done. So if I try again and I improve even further, I'll have a better understanding. But, since all of the steps in Dr. Yakso's plan must be implemented in a certain order, I won't get to the heavy metal detox again for many months.
If anyone is interested, below are the ingredients of the detox supplement I took last time (along with a multi-mineral, which is essential to replace beneficial metals that are also excreted in in the process.) It's mostly a DMSA and EDTA-based detox.
