Brief Answer: As suspected sir, please look into my suggestions Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX sir. The main source of lead and mercury in our daily diet is either from processed food, the plumbing (if an individual uses tap water to drink and cook), and the vessels in which you are cooking your food or drinking your water from. So the first thing you need to do is to stop eating processed food and start using fresh food, and next you need to stop using tap water for anything but cleaning your body. Order mineral water which is much safer to use and should have a much lesser content of lead and mercury. If you were in fact using mineral water all this while, then speak to the company on their permitted levels of mercury and lead (if present) and if it is high, please change the provider. Next, as I had mentioned in our last discussion sir, there are three main approaches to treating lead poisoning, they are: -Chelation therapy: In which we introduce certain substances into your body which bind with the toxic poison and is excreted in the urine -EDTA: Usually used in higher levels of poisoning and in my opinion should be considered in your case sir. Please speak to a doctor regarding initiation of treatment immediately sir Please feel free to keep in touch with me and write to me about any/all developments. As informed earlier sir, I am here with you till you reach 100 % health. Best wishes.

Brief Answer: Treatment looks good sir Detailed Answer: Hello Mr. XXXXXXX The treatment regimen looks good sir. Do go about the same and keep me informed. Sadly the source has still not been identified, I just wish it had been identified so we could first and mostly importantly discontinue that. The reason why I raise concern for the same is because even if the treatment is successful and effective, if you are still in contact with the source (I strongly hope not), treatment will look ineffective. Hope and pray you recover at the earliest and write to me telling me that you are a healthy man and shall remain that way. God bless.
