"I grew up behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia. As a fresh immigrant to Canada at 25 years of age, I stepped into a dentist's office for a checkup and received a dozen mercury amalgam fillings. This was the beginning of my decline.
First I experienced an outbreak of herpes on my lip. Within a year I had severe back problems and carpal tunnel syndrome. Then came serious periodontal disease, gum recession and loose teeth. Later I came down with severe allergies, debilitating me for several weeks each spring. My doctor offered me Sudafed, saying I would have to take it for the rest of my life. There was no cure for allergies, he told me.
At the age of 28 - out of curiosity - I had my hair analyzed to check for toxins, and it came back with mercury toxicity. I should have clued in then, but did not connect the mercury poisoning to my 3 year old dental work.
I sought help form medical doctors, orthopedic surgeons, chiropractors, naturopaths, physiotherapists, and a good range of more esoteric therapists. I was still eating the Standard American Diet, and I was beginning to put on some weight. The decline continued.
Not one of these well trained people suggested mercury poisoning, and yet, that's what I was suffering from. Not one of them tried to find the cause, they were all just treating the symptoms. I finally hit the proverbial wall. I realized that I would have to help myself, because the professionals were not going to do it for me.
I started studying anything I could about health and healing. I started the Fit For Life regimen - mostly raw food, lots of detoxification with algae and proper food combining. After five years of this, my back problems subsided, and after ten years my allergies went away. By that time I was at least as well read as any naturopathic doctor or nutritionist, and I decided to start a health and wellness company.
