Can I Live A Normal Life With Toxic Shame
Letting go of shame: All humans who care about connection to others, experience shame from time to time. This means most of us know what it's like to feel we're not worthy of love or belonging (shame), even if we don't want to admit it.

What are the major areas of the body effected by toxic excess vitamin "d" and how long after stopping vitamin "d" will the effects return the areas to normal, assuming the areas will not be permanently effected?

I recommend you consult a medical toxicologist. These doctors specialize in poison and metal toxicity. If you have already done so, i suggest a second opinion by another doctor in the field. Good luck. ...Read more
On lab work my magnesium was 2.4, top of "normal" range. Should i continue to take a daily over-the-counter mag supplement? Worried about toxicity?
Dr Baker is correct: It's a fundamental but common mistake to think of the reference range as "normal". It's deliberately set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. Low magnesium may be a common unrecognized health problem, but serum levels are a very poor reflection of the adequacy of one's supplies since magnesium is intracellular.
