    Next week, February 18, 2021, I will have chelation treatment for the removal of mercury on my brain. There may be follow-up appointments, but that's something I don't know as of yet. I am having this treatment because various doctors and test results reveal in 2020 that I have a high volume of mercury on my brain. So this appointment was already set up since last year (long waiting list). I'm gonna keep this concise. But basically all throughout my life, I was always mentally challenged with creativity. Some of the composers, guitar artists, and melodists that I look up to are at the very top when it comes to writing tunes with very strong melodies and strong melodic structure. Yet I am not even an iota close to their level.

    Don't get me wrong. I am not looking for gimmicks and shortcuts. On my pursuit to become a professional melodist, I labored the honest way and I show up to the woodshed everyday. I tried every tried and true high end methods, strategies, and systems to help me achieve my goal. But it seems that no matter how hard I tried, there's still no significant transformation on my melody writing. The outcome is still the same. And its been years.

    Could it be that this severe creative block is caused by high amounts of mercury on my brain?

    I'm not sure how a study like that could be conducted (because how to you set a null for creativity measurement in humans?), but mercury is obviously known to cause a number of different cognitive issues in humans and animals.

    Toxic Effects of Mercury on the Cardiovascular and Central Nervous Systems.

    I think it's also unfair to compare yourself to any other musician in any kind of real sense. For me, I've learned that I both don't have a good enough ear, or know theory well enough to just create melody. So my lessons focus on that. And I've made tangible strides, but it's been a year of really working with a great teacher and poking holes in how I had been doing things in the past. I take lessons with one of the most highly regarded Gypsy jazz guitarists in the world. He takes lessons. I don't compare my path to his. He's just helping me down mine.

    If I constantly compare myself to Django or Wes, it's not going to get me anywhere. It sounds like you haven't found what works for you yet, and there's nothing wrong with that. Keep exploring. The great thing about music is that you will always keep learning. There is no ceiling.

    Good luck with your treatments!

    I agree with everything JSanta has written ^^^

    There are lots of great players that I've admired over the years but I would never compare my playing or writing to them. I'll never be anywhere near that level so that would only lead to frustration. I just do what I can and try to be better each time I play or write something new. Some people will never achieve the highest levels of performance or composition and that's ok.

    a quick google search reveals that, unless you suffer from acute poisoning, this is probably not a very good idea. have you tried the usual fixes for creative blocks? getting laid, getting intoxicated. you know, living the life.

    dubious alternative medical treatments rarely form the basis for catchy tunes.

    Thread Update:

    My appointment for the removal of mercury on my brain has been rescheduled to March 25, 2021. I got a fever during the weekend and now I have to follow Covid-19 protocols (quarantine). Even though I recovered very quickly, and I get this type of fever year in and year out because of cold weather (flu season), people in the medical world and government these days play "soft" with these kind of issues and rename or redesignate a common cold as "Covid-19".

    On a normal day, I'm like a well-oiled machine that grinds with my work for hours. But a fever can shut down even the most productive people.

    What matters is your health. Guitar playing doesn't really matter at all. Get as well as you can and if you play guitar better, so be it. If you don't, eat a thermometer and be sick again. Not :-)

    If you have excess mercury the first, vital, thing is to find the source. No point in "chelating" if you have ongoing exposure.

    The source of mercury on my brain came from early vaccination on my formative years during my childhood. As the years went by, This problem was never dealt with. But the common trend during those years was that I was always mentally challenged with creativity, while my contemporaries can at least flash some decent creativity. This has nothing to do with Django or Wes can jam better than me, even a guy that doesn’t improvise very often can play more decent lines than me and I improvise every single day.

    "Mercury use in vaccines and pharmaceuticals
    Mercury, such as thiomersal (ethylmercury), is used in very small amounts as a preservative in some vaccines and pharmaceuticals. Compared to methylmercury, ethylmercury is very different. Ethylmercury is broken down by the body quickly and does not accumulate. WHO has closely monitored scientific evidence relating to the use of thiomersal as a vaccine preservative for more than 10 years, and has consistently reached the same conclusion: there is no evidence that the amount of thiomersal used in vaccines poses a health risk."

    Well, ok, real talk.

    Could it be that you're just not that creative? I'd say most of the population isn't. Maybe you're just normal? Doesn't mean you can't still play and make good music...

    You say a few things that trouble me in your posts...I guess I'd need more clarity to really respond.

    1. You said you show up at the woodshed every day and tried many methods etc...to spawn creativity? The shed is for chops, motor skills...trying to force creativity is like thinking too much about an orgasm. It don't happen.

    2. You say you get fevers every year because of cold weather? Do you mean you get a cold every winter, or do you think cold weather makes you sick?

    3. I gotta admit, the vaccination being the cause thing bugs me...because there's just overwhelming evidence against it. How did you get to the point of having your brain checked for mercury levels in the first place? Was it your own research or was it suggested by a doctor?

    I did not know that.

    I have taught students with autism for many years, and yes, even in students who are on the end of the spectrum that appears very "mild" to a casual observer, creativity can be an issue.

    From a visual arts standpoint, I've spent a lot of time working to find these student's "comfort zones" (generally, all students, not just those on the spectrum, will have a fallback material or process that is least stressful to them) and try to introduce new things into that context.

    So for example, I have a student this year who is very good at copying characters in a Anime/Manga style. My end goal is to get him to create some of his own characters, but there's a block. I've had him working on a flip book, kind of like a police station "identikit" where characters are sliced up horizontally across their facial features, so we can flip a few pages and change one characters nose to anothers, mouth to anothers, etc. He then redraws the new "character" formed, but I'll completely admit, he doesn't connect with the ones he creates by chance the same way-- probably because they are just faces and there's no story, action, and movement related to them. But he enjoyed the process.

    My brain is turning over a musical equivalent...it's there, I'm just not finding words for it.

    Thats very interesting Jeff; I’ll bear it in mind when dealing with students on the spectrum in the future

    To be honest, I feel a lot of music is more in that area than the visual arts but maybe that says more about the way we teach it?

    We have this student in the school, he's 4 years old and supposed just to take a basic rhythm class, but he's obsessed with a bass. Fender Jazz bass we have, when he enters the school he runs around looking for it, and he will not stop until he finds it. If you're holding it in a class teaching, he runs straight to you and would try to grab it from your hands. He doesn't say anything, there is no emotion on his face. When parents catch him he doesn't cry or anything, perfectly calm, but will wait for a moment to escape and run to grab it again.

    When he does get a hold of it, he starts to maniacally strum it, with no real chords or notes, just strum, but with a good rhythm! He just loves to strum that bass with his little hand. We let him if there is time and the bass available. I don't know what to think of him, he's def autistic looking to me, but maybe a real talent too. But that emotionless look on his face... it's kinda disturbing.

    Jason Sioco,

    What you have stated in this thread expresses the creativity of an acute and analytical intelligence.

    I perceive you as a sort of 'medical orphan' like so many people who are health-afflicted
    without (so far in your case) effective medical recourse. Most folks do not realize how common
    this is until it happens to them, someone they love or, very commonly, simply with age.
    Being isolated in illness and in society sounds very difficult to me.

    Please do not take offense at the term 'medical orphan.' I have experience with this all over my life.

    I wish you luck with your treatment.

    I imagine you've done all the typical research regarding diet and nutrition as they relate to your condition.
    I've learned a little about this myself but I won't impose it.
    I can share a bit if you wish.

    so can you carry a tune? can you improvise a rock solo over a given track? you seem comfortable recording yourself. have you considered recording yourself playing actual music, alone or with a backing track? have you produced any tracks that we could listen to? are you using software to make multitrack recordings? beyond the cynisism there are actual good people in this thread who could lend you an ear,

    you seem to have such a great work attitude and it seems to me that you're wasting a lot of productivity chasing perfect pitch which most "melodists" do not even desire to have, and which is obviously not necessary to become a good musician at all. it's really not. you could do it all your life, get super good at it and still be not the least bit closer to your goals. we look for objective thruths in music and this is one. here's another one in the same vein: just because a path is clearly structured and seems easy to follow does not mean that it leads anywhere.

    Interesting thread. When I studied with Tal I drove myself literally sick trying to match the master. I simply don’t have that degree of talent and it wasn’t till I came to terms with it that I began to progress. Jason you seem to be caught in the current thought that everyone can be anything they want if they just work hard enough. You know, the ‘everyone deserves a trophy’ syndrome.
    Sadly the arts just don’t work that way. I admire your desire to be a composer and shredder but it does take an intangible quality of ‘talent’. What exactly is ‘talent’? Well no one seems to be able to define it but I’m sure every music teacher here can tell you of students that have it or don’t.
    Relax, my friend, do the best you can, be satisfied being the best Jason you can be.

    As to mercury, well, having worked in clinical trials for vaccines I have some strong opinions about media supported unscientific viewpoints. Nothing that hadn’t been said. But if a therapy can’t be proven clinically (chelation), just say no.

    If you stick with it, you'll get better. This is a solid fact of life. The beauty of music is that you don't have to be a miracle-boy to make good things happen... at all!

    Also, people say "drop that perfect pitch hunt fgs..." nah. It will help you a lot.. but much later. But probably in a way that you're not imaging right now.

    The essentials for artsy playing are good time, groove, fluid phrasing, dynamics, good sound - things like that. All else is.. you know, a bonus.

    Long time ago I was in school and learned some philosophy. "creativity" was not covered there.
    But "art" was. One idea stuck with me. I think it was from Heidegger, most likely.

    See, you got your mundane/ordinary thing (car or stairway or noodles). Now you figure out an alternative to it - a fresh looking new car, or stairway, or noodles. "ART" is the spark/friction/whatever that happens between your new thing and the mundane thing.

    Um, any thoughts? I bet quite a few here have had some courses at least.

    There are countless examples of great artists with illnesses or disabilities, including autism. I personally know a professional guitar player on the spectrum. A very creative, melodic person who performs on stage and as a studio session professional.

    I think that we don’t know why many people struggle with art, music or other creative activities while for some it seems to come naturally.

    I also think that for those with creative propensity, it is key to find the area where the talent lies, and develop that.

    And sometimes the talent is not what we want or expect.

    Personally I always had an easy time drawing, painting, making up and realizing pictures. We can call it talent, propensity or whatever, but it always came very naturally. I developed that over a long period of time into a professional art career that lasted 20 years. While I was one of the select few that made a living, my talent never included business or networking. So I switched to my other propensity - writing software, which I had maintained all this time as a hobby.

    Both of those activities feel very creative and satisfying. And I’m surrounded by intelligent, creative people who for the life of them can’t do these things no matter how hard they try.

    I on the other hand struggle with music. I can play a piece on the guitar and do some modifications on the fly, but improvisation is very hard and almost always feels unsatisfactory. It’s not where my propensity lies, although I’ll spend my life trying.

    To the OP: I suggest you search for your strengths, I’m sure there are many, and develop those. If you’re unsatisfied with your progress in music, perhaps there is another path in music which gives more satisfaction- consider pursuing that more. Or, maybe there are strengths outside music that can/should be cultivated. The purpose in life is to have fun, and doing things we are good at is a start.

    Finally, one of the side effects of helation is death. I have no idea what exactly the treatment is, but it sounds like some alternative medicine. It may be a harmless waste of money. Let me say this: if there existed working methods to purge chemicals from the brain, then all the inhabitants of Flint, Michigan, would already be doing it. Sadly this is not the case. https://www.google.se/amp/s/mobile.r.../idUSKBN29J04R

    Update March 25, 2021:

    I just came from my consultation today for the removal of the mercury on my brain. The chelation could have been done today, but we have to pay an extra $300 for the treatment and we already paid $275 for the consultation and an extra $300+ for other treatments which I’m going to talk about next. So we decided to reschedule the real treatment for April 16.

    What the medical specialist or the doctor talked about my health during the consultation:


    • The mercury on my brain is just ONE of the problems with my health and I have to undergo more treatments for other ailments on my health.



    • The doctor said that there is a massive physiological disorder on my brain. Which explains my strange eccentricities, sleep apnea, autism, limitations with creativity, anger, domestic violence, and lack of control with avoiding the history of past incidents.



    • The current medicine that I take to neutralize my schizophrenia is a sedative drug that causes sleep disorder, weight gain, flat affect, and limits my creativity.



    • The doctor suspects that there could be a parasite on my body, which causes me to get sick year after year.



    • The treatments that I will undergo:

      • A sleep test
      • A low carb diet
      • Chelation therapy to remove heavy metals i.e.. mercury
      • A 20 week program/treatment to restore the physiological state of my brain. i.e. schizophrenia, autism
      • A treatment to block the hormone that causes male pattern baldness. (my dad is bald)



    • There were a few more treatments that I miss but the point is that I am a walking mess and no one knew about it until now.

    Since you’re concerned about costs, and the way this is going i would be too, think about the following:

    1) what kind of doctor is this? His specialty? Is he board certified? Have you googled him? Are you getting second opinions from a physician with board certs preferably with a teaching hospital?

    2) Locking you into a twenty week program that will cure all your psychological ills sounds like quite a promise. Targeting an exact time in psychology therapy is a red flag.

    3). If he has figured out a hormonal fix to genetic male pattern baldness, he would be world known and possibly richer than Elon Musk.

    You do seem to believe in all this, I understand that. Good luck and start asking questions!

    This doctor was referred to me by my osteopathy therapist. When I talked to him this morning, he was very detailed and had a lot of insight. He had a lot of patients in his clinic (fully-booked), even during Covid, albeit wearing masks and chairs separated further (social distancing). From my own angle, why I have an open mind and bought in to him, because my other doctors who offer similar services and who I have been for an X amount of years pales in comparison when it comes to helping my condition.

    They are both quackery. Vaccines have nothing to do with your frustrations about creativity, and blaming it on them will only hold you back. I wish you the best.
