I have been so blessed to have finally found a doctor who not only believed me about all of this...but he is truly on a mission to get me healthy again. He has agreed to anonymously post help on here periodically, and I hope that it also helps all of you. He has a contact email at the end of his message here. He is will to help any of you as much as he can. If you have questions, you can email him directly, or please consider posting your question as a comment on here so that everyone who reads it can also learn and follow along.
With that being said, here is the first post from "Dr. J.":
This is Dr J, I was first introduced to the Mirena in Novemver 2010 when proudmomma came to my office. She had an incredible list of symptoms she presented with of which you can read on her blog MyLifeAfterMirena. Basically she was at her wits end and grasping for some answers and solutions to her nightmare. One of her biggest problems was that no doctors believed her, her tests came back normal, except silicone, which she had to demand to be tested for, and that there was nothing that medicine could do for her except give her crazy pills. Knowing the laws of physiology, health and disease have some basic premises. Health is a balance of nutrition to toxicity. More toxicity in the body without the nutrition to process it =symptoms and disease. Decreasing the toxic load and increasing the required nutrition =resistance and health. For whatever reason the Mirena malfunctioned in ProudMomma dumping its load of synthetic Progestins and other toxins into her system. This caused a toxic overload and a complete overwhelming of her bodies ability to process the poisons. Thus her body manifested dozens of new symptoms as a result of not handling the poison.
Our bodies are 100% dependent on nutrients to function, all hormones, detoxification pathways, neurotransmitters, enzymes, etc ALL depend on nutrients. So to get her body back to functioning better, we had to nourish it. We started with a Detoxification program to allow her body to start eliminating the toxins from her body. The liver needs Cruciferous vegetables and lots of other nutrients for Phase I and Phase II detox. Then focused on balancing her hormones from a natural standpoint. In the brain is the Hypothalamus and Pituitary. They pretty much run the show. We gave her nutrition to support these to return to normalcy. The products were what is on her blog, Hypothalamex, Hypothalamus PMG, Symplex F, Tuna omega oil, Black Currant Seed Oil,. These nutrients help to bring the HPA axis back on line(HPA is Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Adrenal axis). All hormones are controlled by the HPA axis and when it is not working right you feel disconnected and detached from life, in a fog. Then we started to support individual glands, (Adrenals which are energy, blood sugar, inflammation)(Thyroid which is tissue growth and maintenance and heat production, Two thyroid hormones are T4 and T3, T4 is tissue repair and growth and is depenent on iodine, T3 is for temperature and heat and requires selenium to be converted from T4 to T3, of which 75% happens in the liver which was overwhelmed by the poisons.(Which means you have no energy) Then was ovary and uterus support, then we went on to mineral replacement. Our minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium) etc are our buffering mechanisms to acids put in the body, symptoms of mineral depletion are anxiety, inflammation(you hurt) and intensity(emotional and mad and don't know why) Also needed is to go to a low carb diet void of all starches, bread, rice, pasta, beans, potatoes, pasta. Eating these foods causes more hormone imbalances in the body of which is estrogen dominance, and since the Mirena reduced all of the natural Progesterones in the body you are in a state of estrogen dominance and eating starchy foods just contributes to it more.
Basically the women suffering from the Mirena side effects have been poisoned. We have to get the poison out, support the detoxification pathways, support normal hormone function in the brain and each organ or gland that produces them. Replenish mineral stores, build up nutritional reserves, which reduces inflammation in the body. Eat a low starch/low carb diet to help balance hormones, and eventually if needed to give bioidentical sublingual hormones from a company called Bezweken, never ever get on medical hormones if possible. Also only use nutrients from the company Standard Process. Most other companies are synthetic nutrition which is toxic to your system and induces more disease.
