I haven't written a post for ages it seems, as I've had major problems with my internet connection. All completely above my head, I just press the buttons and hope for the best so had to get a technical 'bod' in to sort it!
Anyway, in the meantime I've been back to my holistic dentist for more mercury filling removal BUT this time ITV were there and they filmed the whole thing for a programme they're making to go out in America in the new year.
How exciting! I'm going to be a star - even if I was wearing a hair net, covered in a gown, had tinted blue shades on and a nose piece covering my face !!! Beggars can't be choosers can they?
Actually it was all prearranged and I met up with the 'crew' first and a chap called Moreland interviewed me on camera about why I'd decided to take the brave (or crazy, some might say?!) decision to have the removal done in the first place.
They then filmed the whole procedure, which I have to say was a little wierd, whilst chatting to John Roberts (dentist) about his views on the health benefits of white fillings versus mercury.
As last time, the protocol was followed and the TV guys all had to don what looked like gas masks so as not to inhale any of the mercury vapours. Nasty, nasty stuff - and yet the official organisations both here and in the states say it's perfectly safe and healthy to have it in our mouths. I ,for one, am very glad it's coming out of mine! Two quarters done now, only two more appointments to go.
John used an anaesthetic again with no preservatives and no adrenaline which makes for a speedy 'recovery to normal feeling' within an hour of the treatment. Amazing, as with previous dentists I can remember feeling numb and sore for days afterwards.
The programme is due to go out in January in America, and they'll send me a copy on DVD. I may even put it up on here depending........
By the way, not health related, or maybe it is.....did anyone happen to see Britney Spears 'live' on X Factor last week? How dare she mime on what is a 100% live show? and wearing such a ridiculously ill fitting outfit.Poor girl, needs to get some new advisors!
