@ anon260881: Teflon's electrical insulation properties put a damper on cellular electrical valences, making you subject to fevers (viruses and other opportunistic organisms attack cells with lower electrical valences); plus, these substances are very hard for the lymph and kidneys to eliminate.
You must walk, since the lymph's only pump is the legs. This is so hard when you're sick, so get a treadmill if you're feverish. It's necessary to prompt the body to eliminate, or it could accumulate in areas and form lymphomas or other leukemias.
Use boswellia, cat claw, goldenseal, neem, osha, calendula (marigold), astragalus, ashwaganda, eleuthero, resveratrol, milk thistle, dandelion, bee propolis, elderberry, cranberry, myrrh, juniper, feverfew, devils claw, yucca, co-Q10 and Vitamins A, C, D3 and E (but don't take A and E together, at the same meal, lest they cancel each other out.)
For pain, glucosamine, MSM, and sea cucumber (astragalus, above-mentioned, is used for cancer pain, by the way.) Use DMSO topically only (MSM is the version of DMSO that's fit for consumption).
You'll need to take one capsule of each morning, noon and night (every day, for several years). The program will work, but it's not covered by insurance, and it takes diligence coupled with the knowledge that your turnaround is coming, but it may take three or four years to completely turn around.
You should feel better within six months, and see steady improvement, with setbacks, until the two-ear point. Between years two and four, you'll notice the setbacks lessen in severity and length. By the fourth year, you'll be working on building up your strength and endurance again, so you'll be able to cover ground during a full work day.
I've used this herbal combination to recover from numerous diseases, conditions and viruses that I'd had most of my life, and had resulted in MS, among many other things. I got so sick I couldn't work in 2006 and was on disability by 2008. By 2009, I started doing this program, because I could no longer get to the doctors, and had nobody to help me (but I could get the herbs delivered to my door).
Now in 2012, I'm able to walk around again, and am doing this each day I'm able. There are minor setbacks: spasms, lower back subluxing, and subsequent crawling around on hands and knees for a week, or walking like Groucho Marx when trying to get back on my feet, for a couple of days, but it gets better sooner, rather than later.
I'm not yet into my fourth year on this herbal program (this is my third year on it), but I've plans to address lymphoma problems this year, and by next year, I hope to get stem cell treatments.
I happen to live relatively near Sloan Kettering, a cancer hospital with a stem cell program. You should find out which cancer hospitals with stem programs are near you, because either breathing in, ingesting, or drinking contaminants can result in the eventual development of leukemia, and they're currently using stem cells as part of the therapeutic treatments.
You mentioned that this happened while machining parts, so perhaps this was breathed in, and has formed a mesothelioma-like problem, but I believe these methods can help you. Good luck! Remember to pray in faith, and be diligent about all you do.
