New mopper - expensive but maybe worth sharing

Hi all,

I wanted to share the existance of a new mopper that combines activated charcoal with a bunch of other things. I don't know how effective it is, initially it seemed to help me a bunch with aches and pains that were reminiscent of my early days with CFSi - but they seem to be back now - so I'm not sure I can wholeheartedly reccomend it (note to self - rule out new career in sales on recovery).

There are the ingredients:

  • Activated Charcoal
  • Bentonite Clay
  • Chitosan
  • Intestinal Metals Detox (IMD) - apparently a proprietary product that consists of highly purified silica with covalently attached thiolic metal-binding groups
  • Aloe and Acacia Gum
Here's a link to a post on it on the manufacturer's website:
and here's the manufacturer's store site:

Its expensive - my doctor gave it to me at $60 for 120g - and I burned through that in 3 weeks. Apparently in the US if my doctor writes some special prescription, I might be able to get it on insurance so I will try to do that when I have time/energy. My doctor is pretty into this stuff - she thinks its more effective than cholestrymine or just activated charcoal.

If you are interested, get in touch - I will try to provide more information :).

Lucky you, to have found a proactive doctor!  This sounds interesting.

I am very lucky, although my doctor is more Lyme focused, and is now also very focused on whether my problems are related to mold/biotoxins which is unlikely as when I was first sick I lived in England, in brick houses heated by radiators. But it does look like she is going to help me to keep taking antibioticsi, at least for the moment.

BTW I wanted to thank you for the encouragement you give on this site: I think it was you that told me symptoms would come back in reverse order - which is keeping me going at the moment. I have been laid out all day today after 2 hours of yard work, everything aches and feels week (even my fingers typing). I am hoping this is a re-run of 20 yesrs ago, when I ended up dropping a year in college with similar symptoms, and I am keeping focused on your last blog entry - looking forward to not being overwhemled by my 20ft x 10 ft yard!!! So glad you found health, and so grateful to this community that I seem to be headed in a better direction, even if the road is bumpy. Just want you all to know (not just Mackintosh) that this community has really helped and encouraged me, I am infrequent on the site, but you always help me when I am struggling - and would post more if I didn't find my job and home life so hard to keep up with.
