The incidence of mercury toxicity is rampant among people today. In my nutrition practice, I have seen how mercury poisoning has contributed to, and in many cases caused a long list of health conditions. Most common health issues associated with mercury toxicity:
- Birth Defects
- Hachimoto’s Disease
- Adrenal Failure and Exhaustion
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Candida Overgrowth
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Neurological Symptoms: tingling of hands and feet
- Bi-Polar Disorder
- Psychological Conditions: Depression, Psychosis, Mania, Schizophrenia
- Digestive Failure
The Most Common Sources of Mercury Toxicity
- “Silver” Amalgam Dental Fillings (each filling contains 50% mercury)
- Contaminated Fish & Seafood: Tilefish, Swordfish, Tuna
- Thimerosal (Vaccine Preservative)
“Silver” Amalgam Dental Fillings
If you have just received a silver filling, you should know that 50% of it contains mercury. Any friction, chewing, breathing and swallowing (especially hot liquids) causes mercury vapors to be released into the body.
The FDA and the AMA refuse to acknowledge the issue of mercury toxicity from dental carries (no surprise). You should also be aware that the fillings arrive in your dentists office in a bio-hazard box.
I strongly urge you to get the fillings removed by a competent biological dentist. If your dentist does not use a rubber dental damn when removing the fillings, he/she should be reported and you should file a lawsuit. Failing to use industry appropriate protocols when removing neuro-toxic substances exposes you to dangerous mercury vapors.
Contaminated Fish and Seafood
The overwhelming majority of fish and seafood is contaminated with mercury and other toxins. The fish that are worst off are: swordfish, tilefish and tuna. I have worked with people, who after consuming large amounts of sushi over a long period of time, became plagued with health problems.
The fish that are the safest to eat are the smaller fish like salmon, sardines, herring an anchovy because they are smaller on the food chain. These fish are only suitable for protein and mixed types because they contain a higher purine content. Carb Types generally don’t do well with these fish.
Mercury in Vaccinations
Many vaccines contain as much as 12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose. In addition to mercury, vaccines always contain other toxic substances such as antigens, diseased animal tissue, aluminum, formaldehyde and chemicals.
Mercury in Children
Autism in children is a raging epidemic. Many experts believe that mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines is a major cause for the neuro-degeneration associated with autism.
Medical authorities today are recommending an astounding 26 vaccinations in children by six months of age.
Detoxifying Mercury from the Body
Fortunately there are methods for detoxifying mercury from the body. EDTA and DMPS chelation therapy is a method that was originally intended for industrial purposes.
While these methods are shown to be effective at taking mercury out of the body, they can significantly deplete the body of essential nutrients as well.
Problems with Mercury Detoxification
The problem is that once a person is weakened from mercury poisoning, depleting the body of nutrients is a bad idea. In a toxic state, the body NEEDS additional nutritional support to aid in the repair and functioning of depleted organs and glands.
You should always run safe and effective protocols for detoxifying mercury. This should include using tests like Hair Mineral Analysis and urinalysis to identify the extent of toxicity, as well as to track its excretion.
- Therapeutic powered probiotics, not available in stores is critical for maintaining normal immune system functioning. This is especially true for children damaged with autism.
- Autistic children almost always have severe digestive disorders.
The methods that I use to help a person detoxify mercury are safe, effective and won’t deplete the body of nutrients. I take into account the person’s entire biochemistry first.
- Reduce or eliminate blocking factors that perpetuate the exposure to mercury
- Secure a strong diet compatible with one’s type of metabolism. This always includes eating high quality protein and vegetables at every meal
- Take a therapeutic dose probiotic, such as Cyto Flora by Bioray, or LB17 by Osumex
- Take the most powerful nutritional supplements to give the body additional nutrient support
- Increase Glutathione Levels in the Body
- Detoxify the Colon, the Liver, the Kidneys FIRST
- Use safe and effective heavy metal detoxification products like NDF and Liver Life
- Persist with protocols that work
Other Procedures that Help Rid the Body of Mercury
Infrared Light Sauna Therapy has been shown to eliminate metals by having a profound effect on neural connective tissue. An infrared sauna can be easily constructed for about $100, or one can be purchased here: www.drlwilson.com
Enemas & Coffee Enemas work by stimulating the liver to release bile, thus aiding in the liver’s detoxification of metals. Coffee enemas may also significantly increase Glutathione production, the body’s most powerful and important antioxidant.
Distilled Water is useful during certain periods of mercury detoxification, because distilled water is believed to extrapolate metals through the urine. Be cautious with too much distilled water, because it may cause the elimination of certain nutrient minerals.
