I wanted to post an update for those who have followed my experience taking the heavy metal detoxing regime with MetalloClear. I promised an update once I had the results of my re-test to let you know if MetalloClear did in fact work to lower my levels. I hope no one really had their hearts set on that because I'm here to inform my readers that I decided not to have my heavy metal levels retested. It was a prayerful decision and one I feel that is right for me. Yes, a part of me is curious if the MetalloClear actually worked, but I guess that will remain a mystery. I could go into all the reasons why I reached this decision, but the bottom line is that the Lord promised to heal me and it's time for me to get out of His way.
There is a Christian song I absolutely love right now. It's called "He Saw it All" by the Booth Brothers. When I heard these lyrics (specifically the underlined ones), it really touched my own personal situation with my health:
"So my friend if the troubles and burdens you carry are heavy and dragging you down; You’ve tried everything you can possibly think of and there’s no relief to be found;
That very same Jesus that altered the future of a blind man, the deaf, and the lame, is still reaching out in your hour of trouble, one touch and you’re never the same."
I've literally tried everything I could possibly think of and while I do feel better overall for the most part, my main symptoms persist. I've been to my primary doctor, ENT's, a TMJ doctor, a neurologist, a cardiologist, have had numerous tests, MRI's, blood work and even did vestibular rehabilitation therapy for 6 months, with no results. I'll back up for a moment and say that heard back from my doctor regarding my most recent Lyme's test and again, that was negative. This is my 4th negative Lyme's test. I did the heavy metal thing, do I really want to "try" that again? Do I want to live on 15 different supplements forever? Um, no. Do I want to "explore other possible options" as to why I'm sick, as my doctor put it? No. What other options? Where does it end?? It ends here with me giving it all up to the Lord, right where I should have laid it down in the first place.
I don't regret seeing my functional medicine doctor as I do think it was important to get my gut in order with changing my diet, probiotics and raising some vitamin & mineral levels that were deficient. Beyond that, it's just reaching into the wind.
I suppose my next update with be my post to share with the world that the Lord finally healed me! Until that time, I leave you with this incredible song of His healing power and love:
