I wouldn't put EDTA or AMLA or any man-made supplements or activated charcoal or enzymes into my body, ever again. I think that vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is toxic. A Naturopath put me on EDTA once, along with a lot of other supplements, enzymes, calcium, magnesium, a multi-vitamin, etc., and I got sicker. It was expensive! I've thrown out all those bottles.
I wasn't going to say anything on this subject, but my conscience is forcing me to write this post :) I've tried a lot of "alternative" things that made me worse and maybe I can help someone by writing this.
I have no studies to cite, only my own experiences and my "gut" feeling that chemicals and man-made supplements are harmful.
If I lived in the Gulf area, I'd try to do as Julie is doing and get out of there asap. I hope that I'd have the courage and the ability to let go of material things that she and her husband have.
I'd continue to follow my current healing methods of seeking nature, removing dental metals, getting lots of sunshine, regular juice fasting, eating fruit, using essential oils from the one source I believe to be good, and using herbs from the one source that I know and trust, if I could afford them. Especially the anti- parasite herbs!
I'd also look into the far-infrared sauna and I'd drink water I've distilled myself and I'd do a lot of juicing. I'd probably learn to grow wheatgrass too.
Thank you for sharing Julie; I really admire you for putting your health ahead of everything else. All I can say is wow! You're an inspiration.
