Magnets and metal in the body

    I swear I read about this but can't seem to find it....

    I have titanium springs in each of my fallopian tubes (essure sterilization)

    Could this be why I find laying on the magnetico so unbearable?

    Does this metal attract EMF? Could I have gotten fatter as a protection mechanism....like insulation?

    I have them as well, but I have no issues laying on the magnetico. Not saying my N=1 means yours is invalid. My mom has had some knee surgeries, and achillies tendon surgeries - in which titanium was implanted. She's had 4 separate surgeries to go in and remove the titanium due to the sensitivities she's had.

    we get fatter to offset our inefficient I'm working on a blog post to explain how everything is balanced and how one small thing can upset the whole oyster cart.

    Ok...i think it has more to do with other metals in my bod...just wanted to be sure I wasn't overlooking the obvious.

    I can't believe you have them too...I have never met another woman with them.

    Looking forward to the next blog. As soon as I get through mid terms this week I may have to pick your brain about HRA vs HSA vs FSA..if thats ok :)

    In an "Ask Jack" BJ asked him about getting a tooth implant and JK mentions that Titianium has been found in people's bodies. That is one of the things that got me thinking about my bracelet..

    When I have jaw surgery next summer I will end up with titanium screws in my jaw...but the surgeon has said that I can get them removed once the bone is healed. I'm planning on wowing them with my bone growth, because I don't want to have metal in my body. My husband's back xrays look like he swallowed a tool box...it's scary stuff when they have to put rods and pins in the spine.

    I am not a fan of metal in the body either....but at the time it seemed like a reasonable alternative to more kids. Mine were 7, 5 and 3 when I did it....lol

    am thinking we probably shouldn't be wearing earrings, necklaces etc. wedding rings......
  9. Sorry to sidetrack off post topic, but if you don't mind me asking why jaw surgery Sea Horse? I only ask b/c I've had serious jaw issues too.

    Here's the quick story: Jaw injury when I was 19...lots of TMJ issues with no real understanding of how the disc was degenerating over the next thirty or so years. After early menopause (alarm bells ringing now) the disc and the bone started going south very fast. Two years ago I couldn't really open my mouth fully and was in a lot of pain and I started losing my bite due to the joint changing shape and hinging differently. So since starting JK protocols I've stopped my bone degeneration (YAY!!!) and now I'm in braces to straighten teeth and prepare for surgery next summer. I will be CTing like crazy all winter, minding the light, hormone support, doing all the good stuff and hopefully surgery and it's attending awfulness of emf, invasive metal, etc. etc....won't set me back too far. I really need to be able to chew properly and I can't which could be behind some of the gut issues I've had too (JK lightbulb moment in a consult)....I can't regain this ability without surgery and I hope I will be much healthier next summer to undergo surgery...there you have it, how about you bb?

    Interesting thought. Aside from the rubbery bracelets I loaded my wrists with in the 80's I have never been a jewelry wearer. I hate necklaces, they make me feel like I am choking, bracelets, even watches feel itchy and cumbersome. I always thought I was sensitive to cheap metal, or my thyroid was the reason I didnt like things around my neck....but perhaps it is simply the metal. It does something my body does not like.

    I have worn the same tiny diamond stud earrings and my simple platinum wedding band and engagement ring for as long as I can remember, I think other women look so beautiful with all the jewelry they wear but I just cant do it. I feel like a child..lol i cant sit still with it on, I itch, my arms feel heavy..its kind of ridiculous.

    Once again perhaps my body knows better than I do :)

    ^THIS^ is me. Unless I'm going out of the house I don't wear my rings Drives DH nuts. And in the pentagon when I'd wear them I'd end up w/a horrible rash under them so I stopped wearing them.
    I do wear my studs - and there's a part of me that considers letting my wholes heal up. but then what would I do with the earrings & diamonds? I guess I could sell them back to the jeweler...
  13. thats ditto for me too girls! I feel like I'm being suffocated when I have anything on... I've had severe allergy to all metals (except gold and silver) since I was lil kid...get excema like rashy stuff as soon as I put anything fake on...
  14. Thank you for sharing Sea Horse, I can definitely sympathize! I’ve always had anterior open bite which wasn’t a problem. I did have braces in Uni to straighten my teeth. Then an idiot dentist over-tightened my jaw during a cleaning and it LOCKED. Pain was relentless, I couldn’t open my mouth, chew or speak for 6 months. My mother pureed all my meals. All the specialists said surgery only option but I met a TMJ specialist who saved my life. He used combination of techniques, mouth guard, cranial retainer, osteo work, chiro work, etc to get me functional. I was doing better than I had in years and just waiting to have funds to straighten teeth again. Then was in huge car crash, smashed my head, back to mouth guard etc etc. Once again surgeons are saying surgery the only way.... But my TMJ and lyme specialist are telling me it is last resort and they’re confident that I can avoid breaking bone.
    Have you consulted with any specialists that work with jaw joints/discs etc without invasive methods? Or are they saying that it is your only option at this point? It really sounds like you’re keeping on top of everything which is awesome!
    Also recently has been mentioned to me that each of our teeth is connected to a particular brain circuit. And the unfortunate impact of braces can be to shut some of those down and that can lead to a host of other issues. So maybe when you’re teeth are nice and straight you can have that checked out just to make sure those pathways are firing optimally :)
    Sorry to ramble on, but as you can see this is such a huge part of my life haha
