I have RRMS and have been running the gamut of alternative therapies to see if they help, in addition to doing OMS of course. I had a heavy metals urine test under the supervision of a naturopath and tested high for various heavy metals including mercury, arsenic and gadolinium.
I had never heard of gadolinium, but it is in the contrast agent used with MRIs, so it important to know that we are taking in heavy metals when we have MRIs with contrast agent.
Whilst I don't know exactly where the mercury in my system came from, before OMS I ate very little fish (and had the heavy metals test only a few months after starting OMS and increasing the fish in my diet). I therefore think that it is far more likely that the mercury came from two sources - the mercury in inoculations/jabs, and my mercury-amalgam fillings. Whilst I had those fillings removed a number of years ago, I didn't know that you should find a specialist/holistic dentist to do this, so quite a bit of mercury could have ended up in my bloodstream.
I am 2/3rds of the way through my Naturopath's recommended heavy metals detox programme. Whilst I don't feel any better, my MS fatigue is pretty much all pervading so nothing seems to make me feel that much better at the moment.
As for gluten, I accept the Professor's view on gluten and MS, but also wanted to know whether I was gluten intolerant more generally. I have experimented with giving up gluten for a month and felt no different, either during the month or when I started eating gluten again. As I still wasn't sure, I had some Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing) testing done by my cranial osteopath/acupuncturist. I tested stronger for gluten-free oats and wheat compared to their gluten-containing equivalents, so have given up gluten. I also then tested stronger for organic gluten-free oats compared to non-organic gluten-free oats.
I intend to have various other organic/non-organic things tested against each other (e.g. fruit/wine), and tap water against mineral water. Again, nothing specifically to do with MS as such, more general health.
