That article is quite amazing Merlyn. Now that I have found the ailments we have is caused by having mutations in genes. Both HLE gene connected.
The combination we have is Hemochromatosis/Porphyria genes.
I thought it may be helpful for people to see how our family have been diagnosed with numerous other maladies, when all the time the connection was iron overload.
a) My sister - Injected with iron as a teenager for anemia when she had an HH gene. Later diagnosed with MS, after optical neuritis, brain lesions, trouble walking, wobbly legs, nerve damage in hands. Severe fatigue and daytime sleeping for 20 years. High iron levels.
b) Myself, got through life well and healthy until iron levels peaked in 2007 at age 45, then developed brain lesion and lost use of hand 14 days after dental anaesthetic, probable MS DX. Severe fatigue and daytime sleeping three years. Spasticity fit. Got worse after another dental anaesthetic in 2009.
c) Brother - Contracted Hep C early 90's. Interferron treatment failed. Severe fatigue, sleeps 19 hours per day, blamed on hep.c. virus. Very high iron levels.
d) Son - Age 6, Severe ADHD, possibly autism/Aspergers, after local anaesthetics, high iron levels, mildly positive for celiac disease. All symptoms started after two local anesthetics age 5. All symptoms disppeared after 3 years, age 9 after growth spurt (lowers iron levels). Age 13/14 was given two further local anaesthetics for mole removal and
cut on leg. Started having convulsions & fainting. high iron levels again.
So how do we treat all these very sick people.
PHLEBOTOMY - Get the iron levels down and all these symptoms go away.
When iron levels get high in our family, we start to react to drugs. The everyday drugs everybody encounters. But the catalyst is high iron levels. It's severely toxic and triggers other genes to kick in. I believe that if our iron levels had never been raised, none of us would have ever had trouble with our other problem gene which is Porphyria.
Iron is a catalyst for more severe disease, whether it be ALS, alzheimers, MS, vein problems, viruses and cancer.
My mother had two hemochromatosis genes and died of ovarian cancer aged 53. Cancer loves iron, it needs iron to grow. Excess amounts in the body feed it and it can move around to storage areas. Excess amounts of it in the body feed viruses. Excess amounts in the brain cause degeneration.
The latest research in heart disease is reduction in iron levels.
The latest treatment for cancer is reduction in iron levels.
The latest treatment for hep.c. is reduction in iron levels.
The treatment I'm receiving for Porphyria is reduction in iron levels.
Iron metabolism imbalances I believe will be the central research for many ailments in this century, and we'll all look back and ask why on earth Government legislated that all our flour is fortified with iron, our bread is fortified with iron, our rice is fortified with iron, our breakfast cereals are fortified with iron. Doctors prescribed iron to patients willy nilly, and injected it into them in many cases causing disease.
