I have been taking silicea 30 ch since January of this year. So far I had episodes of simple mindedness. I would have times when I would become simple. Luckily I formulated a plan to never open the door for anyone and keep a low profile during these episodes. I have an implant in my brain, it was implanted deep when I was about three or four. It's been in there for quite a while. So far it seems like I'm making progress. The implant feels like it's working it's way out. I believe it will be out soon. Something to note for other T.I's. If you have an implant in your brain, there will be a reaction as it comes out. Recently I've been having less episodes. The perps will confuse me and make me believe that the implant has come out. This happens all the time. I might be wrong but I think the implant is working it's way out. If you have one in your brain and are thinking about taking silicea, have a plan for what to do when these episodes happen. It's scary but I feel it's worth it to try something.
