View Full Version : Mercury detox? Is it dangerous?
05-24-2006, 12:33 PM
I think I am going through mercury detox from amalgam fillings.I had a lot of them for around 5 years, then i had them removed by a regular dentist, so he did not use any precausions-I even swalowed some peaces.
But the point is, that now after 6 months raw I am going through similar symptoms as I did after having fillings put in and even worse symptoms after I had them out.One time I even coud not answer for couple seconds my frien's question, even though I wanted to-I just coul not talk! Sometimes forget names(it takes me a while to fish them out of my memory), sometimes -usually in the morning(I guess because night fasting speeds up the process)everything spins around me, and generally I have weird feelings in my head area.
I am a little scared. Is it dangerous? Do you know anything that would help it to go smooth? I even ate a little cooked food to slow it down.

There are some things you can do right now.
Cilantro is a great chelator for mercury. Make green smoothies, I use an orange or two and a small bunch of cilantro plus as much water needed to blend. You can use other fruit, to your taste. Trust your body to tell you how many days of the week to drink this smootie.
Vitimin C is helpful, I'm not a great advocator of supplimenting, I think raw is adequate in most cases, but for now, add vitimin C to your daily diet, as much as your body can handle. You know when you've reached saturation point, you'll get runny stools.
Use a sauna or steam room to sweat toxins out.
PCA-RX is a sublingual mercury chelator. Use your search engine to find a supplier. It is as effective as what the docs are administering, and doesn't create problems. Some other chelators can negatvely affect other mineral levels and can stir mercury up, but drop some of it on the way out of the body, adding to your brain issues.
Since you are on this board, I assume you don't eat critters, but just in case, avoid ALL seafood and fish. I'm even concerned about the sea veggies that others love.
Later on you might want to offer educational materials to that dentist, he should be using precautions.
I have gone through similar things as you even with dental precautions being in place, so don't beat yourself over that part of it, just be kind to yourself and take care of yourself. I would get to intersections and not know where I was, meet people in public who knew me and have no idea who they were, big mood swings down into depression, it was very frightening. I'm much better now, so be encouraged.
Hope that helps,

Sorry to hear you are having a tough time. Mercury detox can be uncomfortable, for sure.
One way to minmize the effect is to add Cilantro and Parsley to your diet. Juice it , thats better yet !!
here is some good info that may help...http://www.mercola.com/article/mercury/detox_protocol.htm
I have had my Mercury replaced over the years as my fillings aged. I also ate a HUGE amount of Tuna over the years so my levels were a bit high so I did a Mercury and Copper detox 3 years ago. I worked with a Naturopath and did some suplements, some type of chelation to detox. I felt crappy for a few days but as the month went on i felt better.

Thank you so much. How much cilantro and parsley do I use - the whole bunch or less? I am going to check out the links.
