Shortness of Breath and Weakness

Q. I often feel that I have tightness and shortness of breath with activity. I also find that I have tremors and ‘nervous weakness’.

A. Apo-strum[1]: these drops are for the treatment of thyroid dysfunction and reduce the tightness and pressure in the thyroid gland. It is particularly important when someone feels as if they have a lump in the throat due to swelling of the thyroid gland. It helps regulate heart function caused by a damaged and toxic thyroid condition. It helps with nervous weakness, tremors and general emotional or depressed moods as well as pressure and tightness in the gland. It helps to treat cardiac disorders that tend to accompany thyroid disorders, including tachycardia.

When proper regulation of the heart is not present, circular disturbances could arise from conditions other than the thyroid. Viscum: resolves cardiac and circulatory disturbances and assists to restore proper function to the heart by addressing metabolic disruptions. It is derived from mistletoe and is specifically indicated as an adjuvant to cancer therapy.

Coro-calm: is a cardiac sedative for treatment of the heart as well as anxiety, fear, worry and psychic unrest that frequently accompanies these conditions. It helps with nervous and agitated states of the heart, pulse anomalies, arrhythmias and in addition, regulates blood pressure and improves oxygen utilization and focal damage in the heart muscle. It helps to eliminate nausea, fear and breathing anomalies that often accompany circulatory problems.

Cardiac Function

Q. On rare occasions, my heart seems to race (go very fast). Does this indicate that there is a lack of some mineral that would cause this to happen?

A. Heart palpitations (the sensation that the heart is pounding, racing or has skipped or added an extra beat), rapid heart rate (tachycardia) or fibrillation (rapid, irregular contraction of the heart muscle) can often be assisted by taking large doses of water-soluble minerals. What the body doesn’t need will flush through the elimination systems of the body. Vitamin B12 supports nervous system function and is a very important supplement at this time – use a very high-grade source.  L-Carnitine and Taurine, (amino acids) assist to protect against damage to the heart muscle. Hawthorne leaf and flower extract are also beneficial – they are herbs used for heart health and a member of the rose family. Note: please be aware that allopathic medical assistance is needed if this situation becomes persistent or severe.

Remember that sometimes, exposure to allergens can cause the heart to race. Non-invasive testing is available from many good allergists. Serums can be prepared to help overcome the allergy. Minimize exposure to the allergen as much as possible. Muscle test yourself for foods that you eat to see if you have a negative (allergic) response to any of them.

Heavy Metals Accumulating in the Body

Facts about Heavy Metals in the Body: Almine Answers Questions Regarding Heavy Metal Toxicity

1. Aluminum:
Common sources of aluminum include aluminum cookware, especially coffee pots, some antacid formulations, and some types of cosmetics-especially deodorants. Some colloidal minerals and herbal products may also have aluminum in them. Aluminum cookware is particularly problematic if acidic foods, such as anything with a tomato base, are cooked in them.

2. Cadmium:
Cadmium toxicity symptoms affect kidney function, heart and cardiovascular tissues, bone, and will cause nervousness in the system, hypertension. Zinc and vitamin E will help to lessen toxicity, but without intervention, it could stay in the human body in excess of 20 years. Cadmium can come from plastics, and synthetic rubber, including old drums from some copy machines. Cadmium ‘Red’ is used in dental acrylics (and dentures) and could be a significant source of exposure for those making dentures or dentists making adjustments (grinding dentures in their office). Cadmium free dentures are now available. The question arises as to whether acrylics used in the mouth are preferable to mercury (amalgam fillings); the answer is a resounding yes. Mercury is the most toxic element known to man. It is inconceivable that it should be used in the mouth.

3. Lead:
Lead is primarily ingested through contaminated food or water, or by children eating substances containing lead, such as lead paint. The degree of absorption of oral lead depends upon the stomach contents (empty stomachs increase uptake), and upon the body’s mineral status. Deficiency of zinc, calcium or iron may increase lead uptake. It is also found in fuels and some Ayurvedic herbs.

4. Mercury:
Mercury is an immuno-suppressive. Early signs of excessive mercury include decreased senses of touch, hearing, vision, and taste, metallic taste in the mouth, fatigue, or lack of physical endurance, and increased salivation. Mercury is commonly used in dental amalgams (50% by weight). It should be clearly understood that the removal of amalgam fillings could produce more toxicity in the body than when they were actually put in the mouth. A biological (‘bio’) dentist, familiar with the removal of mercury, while treating the body to excrete the resulting increase in levels of toxicity, shouldbe used. The purification program that we have given should also precede the removal of the amalgam fillings (treatment is recommended prior to, during and after removal of fillings). See the Mercury –Fish Levels Guide here.

Prior to amalgam removal, Almine recommends:

  1. Renal (kidney) function blood test
  2. Use of the 5-month Pekana homeopathic and diet protocol. See this post for more details on this program; also our Spiritual Journeys webstore to purchase, How to Facilitate the Healing of Chronic and Systemic Disease.
