In January 2013, my heath completed shattered. At my lowest point, I was fully bedridden. And for the last four years, I've been on a journey healing from chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, and endless debilitating infections. This is despite being (what many people would consider) the epitome of health; I have three master's degrees in exercise physiology, nutrition, and biokinesiology and I'm the author of a multi-award-winning fitness book.
In 2016—even after years of healing, being treated for endless chronic infections, and having a team of extensive medical professions—I was still not fully functional. So I started digging further into what could possibly be missing to find out why my immune system was still impaired. Heavy metal toxicity seemed like a possible answer. Addressing heavy metal toxicity is essential in treating many cases of Lyme disease, and I found numerous scientific articles that detailed how heavy metals suppress immunity and increase the risk of infectious disease, including mycoplasma pneumonia (which I, too, was being treated for).
