Quite simply, you might have an iodine deficiency.

Even MORE important patients… YOUR BODY IS NOT ABSORBING NUTRIENTS AND VITAMINS BECAUSE OF GLUTEN (IE, WHEAT!). YOU MUST ELIMINATE IT 100% ENTIRELY.  Listen closely, 100% ENTIRELY.

READ:

“Even worse, the immune response to gluten can last up to 6 months each time you eat it. This explains why it is critical to eliminate gluten completely from your diet if you have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lyme disease, celiac, and any other auto-immune disease. There’s no “80/20″ rule when it comes to gluten. Being “mostly” gluten-free isn’t going to cut it. If you’re gluten intolerant, you have to be 100% gluten-free to prevent immune destruction of your thyroid.” -Field expert

Concerned patient,

If you cut out gluten ENTIRELY you will be able to absorb ALL of the vitamins and nutrients you body needs in 1 year.  Please please please, if you listen to anything I say, listen to this.  You need do some serious research and cut out ANYTHING with wheat.  I can send you a list if you want, but the ONLY way you will correct your illnesses is to ELIMINATE GLUTEN ENTIRELY.

Checkout my Facebook, youtube, and blog for info.  TRUST ME!  Start now, don’t wait until it is too late.  It must be 100% or it will NOT work.  Your life WILL CHANGE!

Symptoms of iodine deficiency

  • Severe deficiency of the essential trace element iodine causes goitre – a swelling of the thyroid gland. Long-term deficiency causes cretinism – stunted growth, mental retardation and many other health problems. The introduction of iodised salt in the early 1900s, and the addition of iodine compounds to other foodstuffs such as flour and milk has reduced the incidence of severe iodine deficiency (goitre) in many affluent countries. However, few people get enough iodine for optimal or even good health. Goitre-producing iodine deficiency is still a problem in many parts of the world, particularly in poorer nations and places where there is little iodine in the local food
  • Fibromyalgia. This is the classic ailment presenting a variety of the symptoms listed below, and caused primarily by an excess of fluorides and other goitrogens in the body

2 things patients… you need to CUT OUT ALL GLUTEN (WHEAT AND WHEAT-CONTAINING PRODUCTS 100%) AND “GOITROGEN” FOODS.

DO NOT EAT:

1. Broccoli
2. Brussels Sprouts
3. Cabbage
4. Cauliflower
5. Kale
7. Peaches
8. Peanuts
9. Radishes
10. Soy-Based Foods
11. Spinach
12. Strawberries

MMS – Magical Mineral Solution LYME DISEASE test results from IGENIX


I have read multiple sites where people want to see “proof” that MMS is actually working to fight viral and bacterial infections.

Here is living proof:


The first result was 1 month before I started taking MMS on 02/07/2011 – lyme disease diagnosis “POSITIVE;” the 2nd result A.K.A. the “follow-up,” 3 months after taking MMS DILIGENTLY, 8 hours per day every single day) on 07/11/2011.  EVERY SINGLE BAN BUT 1 IS COMPLETELY GONE.  NOT ONLY HAVE THE “STRENGTHS” (INDICATED BY THE AMOUNT OF “+” MARKS ELIMINATED, BUT GONE ENTIRELY).

Current-  It has been almost a year since my last test, and I need to get a follow up.  The last time I took MMS was in January of this year.  I haven’t taken it for the past 6 months, and I just started it up on June 14th of this year.  I will be taking it again to be sure everything isdefinitely gone.

XMRV, Lyme Disease, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – CFS. MMS WILL TREAT.


As everyone may or may not be aware of the fact that I have lyme disease, specifically chronic lyme disease.  I did a posting on this a year or two ago and how I believed lyme to be linked with the “XMRV” virus before researchers even made the connection (my entry dates back, before the research).

I want to get tested for the XMRV virus (it is said to cause lyme disease, fibromylagia, chronic fatigue syndrome – CFS, ms, etc).  It is the root cause of these chronic diseases.  Unfortunately there isn’t a standardized test for XMRV yet, not that the government will pay for anyway.  There is an excellent lab by the Whitmoore association, but the test costs $600.  As I stated, it is not covered under insurance.

I have had a return of lyme, or “XMRV” symptoms since I stopped taking the MMS… the MMS was the only “drug” (all natural) that seemed to keep my CFS/lyme/XMRV under control… I am going to once again resume taking it, every single day for 5-8 hours per day.  I also would like to get my follow-up lyme test that I have been talking about, but I cannot afford that, either, which is also out-of-pocket, $200.00, tests #188 and 189.

A lot is going on in my life right now, and the health issues are once again surfacing.  My most recent blood test, from 6/11/12 states:

Hematocrit 47.0 H
MCHC 31.7 L
MPV 10.8 H
Neutrophils 40 L
Lymphocytes 51 H
Thyroid TSH .05 L

My results are once again, since I have stopped taking MMS, out-of-whack.

Anyone who would like to connect with me is welcome to send me a Facebook message.  Search for “Emily Anne Cox,” or emilyacox@aol.com.  I won’t approve your friend-request without a personal message.  I also have a youtube series “MMS- Magical Mineral Solution.”  My username is Not2bforgot10

I look forward to hearing from you!

I will continue to advocate for my health and learn more about my condition and ways to improve my health.  I will be resuming my MMS – Magical Mineral Solution A.K.A. “Water purification drops” to treat my lyme/fibro/XMRV.

My “lyme” disease/fibromyalgia symptoms – Going on 4 years now.


Emily’s Symptoms:

Note:  All symptoms started Fall 2007.  Most symptoms occur worse on the right lateral part of my body, but all symptoms are unilateral.  I am more inclined to notice symptoms while lying in bed at night and in the morning although they occur during the day and are noticeable, but I am trying to stay busy and function (very difficult).  I often stay home because I am so tired and ache (ear-node/jaw/back/neck/shoulder).

Color Coding:

Red-  Current and unrelenting
Black-  Past or single occurrence (Note:  Possibly latent)


Musculoskeleton System:

-Joint pain in hands/fingers (Occurs in both hands, though slightly more painful on the right side.  Was x-ray for arthritis twice  – both negative).
-Neck/shoulder pain (I will often wake up with EXTREME stiffness in my neck/shoulder area and my neck/shoulders will just randomly burn, especially at night)
-Weakness in limbs (This has occurred twice.  I was so weak I could not even get up, and I thought I might have to be admitted to the ER.  Also at this time I was sweating – DRENCHED profusely)
-Unexplained menstrual pain and irregularity

Neurologic System:

-Tingling in hands/feet/face (I thought maybe I had MS -Multiple Sclerosis because of the random “tingling” – The face has tingling & numbness around lips and jaw bone upon touch and considerably more noticeable in cold weather)
-Dizziness/increased motion sickness (Occurs every few days randomly)
-Headaches/Migraines (I get them a few times a year for a week straight)
-Fainting (I had my blood drawn and entirely blacked out)
-Vertigo (Two single occurrences)

Psychological Well-Being:

-Vivid dreams and nightmares (Fall 2008)
-Increased anxiety
-Difficulty falling asleep and insomnia
-Increased depression

Head, Face, & Neck:

-Lump in throat sensation (It will randomly feel like I have a golf ball or large-size piece of food stuck in my throat)
-Asymmetrical tonsil (On right side of mouth – Dr. states it looks and feels the “size of a grape”)
-Mouth sores (I get little canker sores — clear bubbles in my mouth at random times — usually a single or couple bubbles at once typically behind my front bottom lip)
-Facial flushing (MRI showed inflammation in cheeks)
-Random nose bleeds (Occur twice a year for a week-long stretch and will gush – Last time I went to the ER)
-Extreme dry mouth (Cotton mouth, and it doesn’t matter how much water I drink)

Eyes, Vision:

-“Tired” dry eyes and tear ducts (Eye doctor said that my tear ducts dry up every “2 seconds” instead of “13” seconds.  Additionally, my eyes have lost their “vitality,” ie: vivid/whiteness, and sometimes by the end of the night I look stoned.
-Oversensitivity to light (I now have to wear a hat with a visor all the time and sunglasses)
-Worsened vision (Blurry, worse at night. Developed astigmatism)

Ears/Hearing:

-Ear-node pain (Constant dull, aching pain behind ears – random times for intermittent hour-stretches of time – when it is really bad, it extends to the upper jaw, causing me to clench both my teeth/jaws and hands, then I get a headache, and then my upper back and neck start throbbing, knotting, and burning)
-Buzzing in ears (Occurs in 1 ear at a time and is known to occur in both ears, though it happens 75% more of the time in right ear)
-Oversensitivity to sound

Digestive:

-Bloating
-Diarrhea
-Constipation
-Unusual abdominal cramping (This has happened a couple times. I will get pain in my abdominal region when I am not on my period)

Respiratory/Circulatory System:

-Extreme sensitivity to heat and cold (When others are warm, I am uncomfortably hot and sweaty, and when others are comfortable, I am cold)
-Night sweats (Mostly occurred in 2008, but should not be ruled out because they occurred frequently)
-Cold hands, feet, and nose (Occurs in fall and winter and is out-of-proportion compared to the normal person)
-Hot and cold flashes (Occurs periodically often while laying in bed, or perhaps that’s when I notice it most like many of the other symptoms)

General Well-Being:

-Extreme fatigue (varies day-by-day and can strike out of nowhere)
-Unexplained weight changes (Extreme gain and loss — fluctuates between 118 and 136 lbs and changes in a very short periods of time)
-Enlarged neck/throat (lymph) glands (Especially when I work out, even minimally, ie: lifting dumbbells for a half hour)
-Foul-smelling boogers (Sounds strange, but is definitely something I have noticed since very early on when I became sick).
-Continual, re-occurring, slow healing infections (I get a lot in my fingers)
-Allergies/Sensitivities (I have developed an allergy to dust and developed food sensitivity to blackberries and some soy-made products)
-Random rashes (Allergies?  I have eaten the foods before and never developed a rash – now I am getting more rashes when I eat things.  The last rash was on my left kneecap, which did not subside with Benedryl “quick strip.”  The rash remained on my leg for 3 solid days and was triangle-shaped).

Other:

-Abnormal ANA titer 3x (Negative for rheumatoid factor, ie: scloderma, lupus, arthritis, etc.)

March 13th, 2011. Exhausted.


I am tired and exhausted and just want to sleep.  Erin and I were going to go to a coffee shop tonight, and I am too pooped.  Speaking of “coffee shops,” I want to explore other coffee shops in the area, as I am getting tired of the three that I’ve been to – Chapter House, Bean Cafe, and Starbucks.  I am even tired of Borders which is forever away and full of a bunch of homeless people and PC-users.

I am going to look up coffee shops here soon.  There has to be an intimate one in the area.  Chapter House is okay, but it’s crowded and modern and doesn’t really have the “bohemian” feel I am looking for.  “Bohemian” may not even be the word… it’s just too modern and too crowded and you get a lot of college students.  There are however plenty of mac users, which is good, but it’s all young college folks.

I miss the coffee shops in Burlington which are very down-to-earth, artsy, and intellectual.  I miss that feel.  They would have real local trees as their coffee tables and plants all around.  They would often have live music…. there was a very authentic feel.  I miss that… speaking of “Burlington,” I was going through my stuff today, putting stuff away, and I found the popular, tourist, cartoon-style map of Burlington from when we went on our trip a couple of weeks ago.  I was tempted to cut it out and put it on the wall but didn’t want anymore clutter on the wall.  I then thought of another idea:  Framing it!

I thought to myself, “I need to feel like I’m at home when I’m in recovery,” and so it occurred to me that I could frame it.  I haven’t framed it yet, but it’s just a passing thought.  I probably would have by now, but I am exhausted.  This is part of being ill; I am always tired.  Granted, I did not get proper sleep last night, which complicates matters, but over all, I am not as energetic as I would like to be.  Aside from lacking the energy, I am often in excruciating pain.  I always have pain behind my ears… where the bone and jaw meet.  It’s this dull, aching pain constantly… it often hurts so bad that I clench, both my hands and jaw, which then causes me a headache and eventually a migraine.

The ear/jaw bone pain is always there.  2 years ago I thought that by removing my wisdom teeth the pain would be eradicated but it didn’t make a difference; it remains.  This pain started when I was in a very stressful, abusive relationship back in the fall of 2007.  It has come and gone, but now it is pretty steady.  I want to put a hot packet on it constantly to soothe it, but it only works so well.

I am also super duper sensitive to the heat and cold and have major heat and cold intolerance.  When most people are wearing sweatshirts I am bundled up in a winter jacket, gloves, and a hat.  When people are warm, I am extremely hot and need the AC.  My eyes are also slightly yellow and “sick” looking — they have been this way since fall 2008 when I first became sick.  I get fevers, the sweats, tingling in my hands, face, and feet.  I am miserable.  I have increased anxiety, depression, insomnia…

My mouth is always dry like cotton mouth, and it doesn’t matter how much water I drink; it won’t quell my dry mouth.  I am constantly getting infections… especially in my fingers and nose.  I am sick, and this lyme bacteria is killing me.  The list goes on and is actually quite detailed.  I have been tracking my symptoms steadily for 3-months now using a tracker.  Granted, if I wanted to, I could go back through all of my old medical notes, but I barely have the energy to do that.

I want to get better, to feel better, and to be revitalized again.  I want my health back!

XMRV virus — Common link? (Suspected this 1 year ago – preliminary research).


At first I noticed there was a positive link for XMRV in patients with CFS
Then, after having been diagnosed with LYME disease, I wondered if there is a positive link for XMRV with lyme patients.  One statistic from a personal message board stated that approximately “40% of XMRV suffers have lyme disease.”

I originally, shortly (within a few weeks) before suspecting I had lyme disease suspected I have CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).

In late July or August of 2010 when I was researching CFS I discovered the connection between XMRV and CFS.

Now that I am diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease and still fit all of the diagnostic criteria for CFS, I am wondering if I might be carrying the XMRV virus.  I believe that studies should be conducted on lyme individuals confirming and measuring the percentage of those infected with the XMRV virus and additionally, those with XMRV tested through IGENIX –the top lab for lyme disease.

In addition to my strongly-held belief of all lyme patients needing to get tested for the XMRV virus and the XMRV virus folks getting tested for lyme (via IGENIX), I am wondering if perhaps (this is my hypothesis) many lyme patients are not recovering and/or are having relapses because their “lyme” is being treated and not their XMRV.

I strongly believe and could write a paper on the notion that XMRV is responsible for many (percentage I am not sure) lyme disease suffrage.  Additionally, is there a drug that will treat XMRV and/or lyme disease?  XMRV is a retrograde virus, meaning it encodes itself in the DNA:  Could this be the same, or similar to the borrelia spiroc “embedding” themselves in the cells and tissues?  Could the borrelia spiroc carry the XMRV virus?

Addendum:

What are the negative effects of XMRV?
How is XMRV transmitted?  As of right now, I believe that one way it is transmitted is sexually via breast milk, etc., and I have read that there is possible transmission via ticks, mice, etc.  I do NOT believe that XMRV is genetic.  I strongly believe it (one mode anyway) is passed sexually via breast milk and am open to learning about additional ways.

So if one, like myself, believe that XMRV is at the bottom of this then shouldn’t drugs, ie: medications be looked at on how to treat XMRV?  Basically my best route now would be to look for and hope that some of these “lyme” treatments work for XMRV!

Which lyme disease medications have been known or suspected to additionally work to treat XMRV?

I am curious as to whether or not there is a research trial that I can get involved with and be tested on.
