A little bit about Me!


I am the creator of ancient pocket ( www.ancientpocket.com)  I am an herbalist, certified Reiki master, art and outdoor youth educator determined to return to my work full time!

I am the wife of Chris Samp and mother of 3 wonderful children, Enoch (13), Iris (8), Daisy (4). We currently live in Algona, Iowa seeking to relocate closer to my sources of health and support (aka my current specialists).

My symptoms began after some amalgams were done in 2014, under the guise of pure “silver” which I didn’t request nor desire. They were placed in my mouth unknowingly as the dentist claimed he was going to use a stronger material than plastic composite fillings and proceeded to drill out a very old amalgam filling I had as a child without any precaution and place 5 brand new mercury based fillings- again I didn’t see the work till after it was done and asked him what material he had chosen and at that point only then was I informed that they were the traditional amalgam fillings.  I had no idea dentists still used this very dated and dangerous material but what was done was done.  Shortly thereafter I found myself plagued with TMJ due to a faulty bite that the dentist had left me with and also began experienceing intermittent episodes of confusion and severe headaches that were acompanied with grinding my teeth. It was at this time my fillings began to crack and unknowingly leak into my body. My one very old filling had already been doing this and had long since stained my gumline in my late teens.  As these symptoms came and went and were treated as anxiety, imbalance, cold, allergies or something of this nature. I was then bit by a tick on the back of the head two years later, which showed no signs or symptoms that I recognized. After these symptoms persisted and became more frequent. No MD was able to diagnose nor pinpoint my condition.  Along with multiple episodes of tremors and heart palpitations, I did some extensive online research and found a nearby D.O. that could test me for Mercury toxicity which I intuited I had. It was these results that gave me my answer, which was what I didn't want but expected, Heavy metal poisoning, mainly Mercury along with a few other metals present.

Due to the high levels of Mercury present in my body, especially in my brain (unknown to myself or my practitioner at this time). In winter of 2016 I began to seek help from practitioners in my area, which like for many others with similar symptoms as mine, I was led down a path of both dental and practitioner mishaps in which a one size fits all approach was used, and I questioned the applications which only made my symptoms progress and worsen. In the process of seeking proper treatments my medical bill which are not covered by my insurance have been strictly out of pocket.

In the spring of 2017, Fortunately I found a experienced detox specialist and a doctor of functional medicine, who together were able to determine that I not only had heavy metal toxicity but Lymes from the tick bite two years prior. These two lifesavers are beginning to treat my case of neurological Lymes and neurological Mercury. They are also steadily lessening my long journey to leave my bedroom(except to sleep) and make it so I'm upright more and rejoin my family and world!

My case is unique due to a number of factors which the other practitioners missed. Due to a genetic factor MTHFR gene mutation which will not allow my body to easily push the metals out, and being mainly neurological...  It is a delicate and time consuming procedure as the drawing out of metals from the human body can take many months as well as taming the co infection of Lymes in my brain, but it will be done!

With that said when you donate you will be contributing to the following;
New dental work due to botched procedures, specific mineral supplementation, herbs for Lymes and the bringing down the metals from my brain using chemical chelation, acupuncture treatments for neurological Lymes and Mercury detoxification, a infra-red sauna purchase to treat Lymes co infections and Mercury toxicity, travels to my practitioner who is four hours away each way which takes up energy and funds, working with Lymes healer, detox protocol that will be effective for my current health status and medical tests i.e. further Lymes blood work.  Possible relocation fees in order to re home myself and my family so we can aid my health and speedy recovery. 

Thank you for choosing to be a conscious co creator and participant in my healing journey and your encouragement is a blessing!
