Coming Soon: “The Mercury Diaries”
Happiness! It’s not every day that I get to write a blog post like this one 🙂
Today I am so excited to announce that my micro-publishing house Capsule Press will be coming out with a new title in the Fall of 2012. This book is called The Mercury Diaries and is written by a wonderful Englishman called Daniel Forsyth.
I first came across Danny when we were both hanging out on the Frequent Dose Chelation Yahoo group–he posted online under the username Sunshine. We were both in the early days of our chelation journeys, and when I went online looking for a sliver of hope or inspiration, his posts were often the ones that delivered.
The posts that I think I’ll never forget are the ones he wrote about getting his color vision back after a lifetime of profound color blindness. After a round, he’d get online and tell us about regaining his color sight–not all at once, but one color at a time. “Yellow is Back!” he’d announce. No matter how awful mercury was making me feel that day, all I’d have to do was think about this man I’d never met walking around London, staring in awed wonder at yellow street signs and I’d know that everything was going to be okay.
Fast forward a couple of years, we’d both gotten our health back, and Danny was sending me big chunks of his writing–his chelation story–and it just kept getting longer and funnier and more fascinating every time I looked at it.
“Every time I try to edit it down, I can’t help adding stuff, yeah?” he’d tell me sheepishly on the phone.
An experienced writer, I could clearly see what was happening. This wasn’t a case of a man consciously sitting in front of a computer and choosing to write a book. This was a book rising up and pouring itself out of a man.
It was an amazing story to read.
The book is a gutsy, no-holds-barred account of his horrible health crash. A successful London broker, Danny’s life was a million miles away from healing herbs and cleansing fasts. But when conventional medicine failed him, with his health spiraling rapidly down the drain, he threw himself into the world of alternative healing and tried everything he came across until he found answers.
Danny’s trip into the wild and wacky world of natural healing is an eye-opening and educational adventure. He leaves no stone unturned and finally identifies mercury as the culprit. He embarks on amalgam removal and chelation–a familiar story to many of us–but in this case it’s told to us by a straight-talking London broker with a comical turn of phrase. Picture Dr. Mercola crossed with Austin Powers and you’ll understand why I’m saying that this is a book that cannot be missed.
