Damn, for almost a week I have been forgetting to post about my recent experience. So, since I finally remembered;
Not long ago I started noticing that when I would play the guitar I was missing a lot of the strings. Also I was doing weird stuff like bumping into the edges of doorways on occasion, instead of gracefully passing through them. Sometimes when standing still, it would feel like my feet were sliding apart in this kinda weird almost spinning sensation. Sometimes numbness in the hands.
Anyway, finally, it dawned on me that perhaps30 years involved in electronics with a good 20 of them heavily involved in prototyping guitar amp designs, might have taken it's toll. So I did some research online and discovered that indeed my symptoms just might well be those of lead poisoning.
To make a long story short, for the last couple of months I've been munching mass quantities of Cilantro, about 1 bunch/day. Also I've been supplementing with selenium.
Both supposedly have chelating agents in them that can help rid the body of metals. Anyway, after about 2 month's of this, I am noticing my coordination has improved immensely when playing the guitar, and no more weird numbness or spinning sensations as of late.
I suppose this is all a bit anecdotal, but thought I'd relay my experience anyway FWIW.
I also read about how lead poisoning was what made the Hat makers go mad and is where the expression "Mad Hatter" came from.
This struck me a bit funny since my wife and I have an animal shelter for cats. I'm thinking about changing my screen name to "The Mad Catter" :-)
BTW, also I have a lot of dental fillings starting to break lose, so I have to wonder if some of the metal toxicity might also be a result of mercury from crumbling amalgum.
At any rate, whatever the cause, heaping servings of Cilantro and a supplement of selenium seem to be keeping it in check. I plan to look into Chlorella which also is purported to have chelating properties.
