    Just wondering how many people consistently (3-5x/week) hit the gym, yoga mat, or strap on a pair of running shoes? Because I know for certain that if I’m not in the gym at least 5 days a week, 45mins-1hr per session, I can’t even function as a normal human being. Drug ridden, bad diet, whatever; as long as I get those workouts in every morning, I can still kick ass and take some names throughout the day.

    I used to be into bodybuilding and lift 3 times a week but don’t anymore. I was eating a lot of tuna/salmon for protein purposes and developed a mercury toxicity without knowing that I was actually poisoning myself. That’s irony for you, trying to be fit and healthy and instead I accumulated all these chronic health problems.

    Working out is one of those things that I can’t wait to be able to do again.

    I hear ya man. I used to eat 1-2 cans everyday and switched to chicken once Jeremy Piven got mercury poisoning from eating sushi after like 10 years. What’s stopping you from getting back into regular exercise? Even if it’s only a jog around the block or a few laps in the pool, I’m sure you could do something right??

    Personally after browsing this forum the last few days, it really does seem like a lot of people could cure themselves of some serious ailments by adopting a healthy exercise routine. We didn’t evolve from people who sat in cubicles 8 hours a day and foraged for dinner in the freezer aisle.

    I’ve tried exercising occasionally, but have negative responses when I do. It’s not the out-of-shape “I don’t wanna do this” response because I love the feeling of pushing my body towards its limits, but instead I feel emotionally/physically drained afterwards for the rest of the day if not longer. I tried 20 minutes of HIIT on an exercise bike a couple of months ago and was absolutely drained for the rest of the day in not a good way. I had to sit in a chair and basically stare at a wall for an hour before the worst passed–completely brain-fogged and completely exhausted.

    I believe it’s due to the paradoxical decline of ACTH (Adrenocorticotropic hormone) after exercise. Normal, healthy people see a rise in this hormone after exercise. Mercury toxic, adrenal insufficient people see the opposite, with a decline in ACTH. Andy Cutler (mercury expert) describes this situation in his book Amalgam Illness. I’m optimistic that after enough chelating I’ll be able to lift weights again without this happening.

    Because of my experience I do believe that some people’s health situation dictates that they are better off with no exercise, but that’s an individual situation and people have to figure out for themselves what they can get away with or benefit from.

    I haven’t lifted for roughly a year and a half now, but thinking back now I can’t wait to do it again. Squatting will be the first thing I do.

    Inflammation and a few other things that some sick people could have going on reduce ATP availability and can also cause some capillary hypoperfusion. Basically, limited fuel to burn and problems with getting it there. Causes exercise intolerance and post-exertional. If you want some links, let me know.

    Thanks for the insight. It hadn’t occured to me that adrenal insufficiency would cause people to feel that way. And I’m about to go do a 5×5 right now. Front squats, Incline Bench, Barbell Row. Wish I could do real squats but there’s no squat rack at my “gym” so I steal a bar off the bench press and hang-clean it up there. What do you want… Its 24/7 access and $9.99 a month.

    I would actually love some links, but I’ll probably google it anyway so don’t waste your time if you don’t have to.

    If you’re able to work out, well at all really, but especially if you feel better from it, it def isnt an issue for you. Its basically boils down to a cfs type thing. Some people have it but its only a real issue after exertion or possibly from being in the heat. Ive dealt with post exertional crash from both cfs and adrenal fatigue. The biggest describable difference I can think of, for me, was that with an adrenal crash I felt much better from laying down/ much worse standing & walking (walking was difficult and almost weird feeling) while a cfs crash it didnt matter nearly as much if I was sitting, felt just low on energy, and very faint/lightheaded/dizzy-much more constant.

    I’ll see what I can come up with.

    It sucks so bad. I wrestled in high school. I couldnt imagine what one practice would do to me now. On good days now Ill do some push ups, pull ups, throw the girlfriend on my back & do some easy squats, easy stuff at home. I miss pushing myself so much. And that awesome loose relaxed calm feeling after.
