Huggin's Protocol for Removal Mercury Fillings



Support of the immune system by administration of Intravenous Infusion Ascorbic Acid during the removal of mercury fillings.

Mandatory is the necessity for the administration of TRAVENOUS VITAMIN C ( Ascorbic Acid) during the removal of mercury fillings. Patients suffering from Mercury sensitivity may develop an allergic reaction during the removal of their mercury fillings as a result of the mercury vapors which are released . This allergic reaction may be lessened or completely prevented by the SIMULTANEOUS administration of intravenous ascorbic acid. Ascorbic Acid has an antihistaminic action in the body thereby reducing or totally eliminating an allergic reaction. In addition, any mercury absorbed into the body during the mercury fillings removal will be more readily eliminated in the urine if the ascorbic acid I.V. is administered. The ascorbic acid will also help eliminate any mercury which has accumulate in patient’s body as a result of the mercury vapors which are released each time person chews. There are numerous papers in the literature, dating back to the 1930’s and 1940’s showing that ascorbic acid has a detoxifying affect on both organic and inorganic chemicals in the body ( Stone , Irwin: The Healing Factors, Vitamin C against Disease. Pedigree Books, New York 1982 )Mercury is among those chemicals which ascorbic acid helps to remove from the body.

Oral method of taking various nutritional supplements that may help in the detoxification . Recommended program is to begin with the oral supplementation one week before the first session.

  1. Mercury filling replacing by BIOCOMPATIBLE dental material
  2. Arrange for rubber dam , rubber dam clamps . This is a square of latex rubber stretched on a frame. It isolates the tooth or teeth being worked on. The rubber dam prevents the patient from swallowing ground out amalgam particles and accidentally inhaling mercury fumes. dam frame precaution to minimize the ingestion during the drill of amalgam , this exposure is greatly reduced by pulling away well aver 95% of your potential contamination during the removal procedure “ Mercury filling are arrange for sequential removal . Current information indicates that it is better to replace only a few amalgams at a time.
  3. The use of high volumes of cold water both from the drill and separate irrigation by the assistant, who should also be simultaneously using high volume suction evacuation of the vapor and particles resulting from the removal procedure. The assistant should hold the high-volume evacuator next to the tooth being worked on until all of the cut filling and cavity have been cleaned out. It is the volatility of mercury that necessitates all the precautions and correct techniques. Mercury vapor pressure doubles with every ten degree centigrade rise in temperature. High powered vacuum . Suction oral evacuator / aspirator tips.

  4. The office and operatory should be well ventilated. Now I installing central vacuuming systems in their offices. This provides an additional high vacuum suction source, drawing out mercury vapor and mercury aerosol generated during the removal process. Air filters, Ionizers, face cloth.
  5. One acceptable procedure that minimizes extensive grinding involves sectioning the amalgam into chunks versus just grinding it out. Amalgam cut into four pieces ( not drilled out ) Measure amperage and polarity the amalgams and remove in order of the least path of resistance per quadrant ( highest negative, lowest negative, highest positive, lowest positive . Sequential removal requires the dentist to measure and chart the electrical current of each filling and to remove/and or replace the amalgam fillings based on the charted information starting with the highest negative readings. Replacement fillings by quadrant, thus removing the largest source of mercury first.
  6. High speed hand piece with 15 RPM ( Regular 30 RPM )
  7. Local anesthesia without epinephrine or vasoconstrictor
  8. Mercury filling removal with oxygen nose tubes precautions to minimize the mercury vapor inhalation.

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt Detox-Amalgam Removal Protocol

Two Months Prior to Removal Do the Following Four Items:

  1. Vitamins and minerals. Start on vitamin E 400 units per day and use a high quality mineral supplement. Selenium 2-400 mcg should be part of the mineral replacements. Deficiencies of hydrochloric acid will impair mineral absorption. One should check for adequacy of hydrochloric acid secretion and take the appropriate acid supplement if indicated. The sternal reflex point described above is a useful tool in this determination.
  2. Start on chlorella. Establish the highest tolerated level. If excessive mercury is mobilized, the patient will become symptomatic with nausea, heartburn, diarrhea, a flu-like illness, and headache. The lower the tolerated amount, the more intracellular mercury toxicity is present. The tolerated level ranges often from 1/10 teaspoon to one tablespoon (1/2-14 capsules). Give no more than one tablespoon (14 caps) /day initially. Stay on the daily dose days 1-8. On day 9 and 10, take ten-fold that amount, but no more than 3 tablespoons (60 caps) /day. On day 11 and 12, pause. And then, start over. Take with meals in divided doses.
  3. MSM
  4. Cilantro, make cilantro the first know substance that mobilizes Mercury The CNS. The active principle is unknown. Dried cilantro does not work said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt , which suggests that the active substance is in the volatile fat- soluble portion of the plant probably and aromatic substance. When autonomic response testing is used rapid changes in the brain and spinal cord after cilantro consummation can be demonstrated, also the appearance of mercury in tissues where it was no previously found., i.e. , liver , intestines , as a result of mobilization in the nervous system. Parsley also works, but often has gastrointestinal side effects at appropriate doses . I suggest fresh cilantro or pesto .

The Day of Removal and Afterwards

  1. If the patient were compromised it would be best to remove only one filling and observe how they tolerate the procedure. If they tolerate the removal they can then proceed to one or two quadrant removal based on the number of fillings present.
  2. The day of the dental work (amalgam removal), take 20 caps Chlorella immediately before dentistry.
  3. After the fillings are removed, open 2 capsules, sprinkle onto teeth, mix with saliva, and keep in mouth for 10 minutes to mop up metal residues. Don't swallow. Instead, spit out and rinse mouth. Repeat both steps after procedure is over. Repeat again that night. Then resume regular program. Also, take extra MSM and chlorella.
  4. The mercury /tin/silver antibody titer may rise over 2-6 weeks after the first removal. Don't remove more fillings during this time in order to avoid acute “immune breakdowns.” Either finish all 4 quadrants in the first weeks or have a session every 2-3 months.
  5. Don't stop detox program until patient is asymptomatic. This can be as long as 3-4 years in some cases.

Comprehensive nutritional support / Detox program:

  1. Detoxification Orally : Detox- Max
  2. Chlorella ,
  3. Cilantro : make cilantro the first know substance that mobilizes Mercury
  4. The CNS. The active principle is unknown. Dried cilantro
  5. MSM
  6. Vitamins and Mineral
  7. Orally DMSA from brain blood barrier toxicity.
  8. Detoxification Intravenous:
    • Intravenous Vitamin C ( Ascorbic Acid )
    • Intravenous DMPS and EDTA Therapy.

Amalgam Removal

Dentists routinely remove amalgam fillings every day and replace them with other amalgam fillings. The ADA's own statistics are that 75% of all restorations replaced are amalgam. The average life of an amalgam filling is 5.5 to 11.5 years. Most fillings are replaced because of decay under the filling, excessive corrosion, fracture, etc. The procedure is so commonplace that the insurance companies will pay for replacement of an amalgam filling after only one year. The primary risk to a patient's health is the competence of the dentist, his/her ethics and integrity in taking the requisite precautions to protect their patients and staff. Newer materials are so much more flexible and advantageous to work with that, in many instances, teeth can be saved that would otherwise be lost if amalgam were the only material available.

There are special techniques used by your dentist to remove amalgam fillings. If done properly, there is minimum exposure to increased levels of mercury vapor caused by the removal procedure. The correct protocol requires the use of high volumes of cold water both from the drill and separate irrigation by the assistant, who should also be simultaneously using high volume suction evacuation of the vapor and particles resulting from the removal procedure. The assistant should hold the high-volume evacuator next to the tooth being worked on until all of the cut filling and cavity have been cleaned out. It is the volatility of mercury that necessitates all the precautions and correct techniques. Mercury vapor pressure doubles with every ten degree centigrade rise in temperature. One acceptable procedure that minimizes extensive grinding involves sectioning the amalgam into chunks versus just grinding it out.

During amalgam removal, the dentist and assistant are at greater risk from exposure to mercury aerosol spray and vapor. They will be wearing special clothing, masks and surgical gloves. These actions protect them from excessive exposure to mercury during repeated removal operations. Some dentists utilize a rubber dam during the amalgam removal procedure. This is a square of latex rubber stretched on a frame. It isolates the tooth or teeth being worked on. The rubber dam prevents the patient from swallowing ground out amalgam particles and accidentally inhaling mercury fumes. The office and operatory should be well ventilated. Many mercury-free dentists are now installing central vacuuming systems in their offices. This provides an additional high vacuum suction source, drawing out mercury vapor and mercury aerosol generated during the removal process. Current information indicates that it is better to replace only a few amalgams at a time.

Some individuals may experience reactions to the mercury released during the removal procedures. These are described as flu-like and can last from 1 to 7 days . Symptoms may include fever, nausea, headaches, etc.

Vitamic C

Mandatory is the necessity for the administration of TRAVENOUS VITAMIN C ( Ascorbic Acid) during the removal of mercury fillings. Patients suffering from Mercury sensitivity may develop an allergic reaction during the removal of their mercury fillings as a result of the mercury vapors which are released . This allergic reaction may be lessened or completely prevented by the SIMULTANEOUS administration of intravenous ascorbic acid. Ascorbic Acid has an antihistaminic action in the body thereby reducing or totally eliminating an allergic reaction. In addition, any mercury absorbed into the body during the mercury fillings removal will be more readily eliminated in the urine if the ascorbic acid I.V. is administered. The ascorbic acid will also help eliminate any mercury which has accumulate in patient’s body as a result of the mercury vapors which are released each time person chews. There are numerous papers in the literature, dating back to the 1930’s and 1940’s showing that ascorbic acid has a detoxifying affect on both organic and inorganic chemicals in the body ( Stone , Irwin: The Healing Factors, Vitamin C against Disease. Pedigree Books, New York 1982 )Mercury is among those chemicals which ascorbic acid helps to remove from the body.

Sequential removal requires the dentist to measure and chart the electrical current of each filling and to remove/and or replace the amalgam fillings based on the charted information starting with the highest negative readings. Most dentists around the world replace fillings by quadrant, thus removing the largest source of mercury first.

Amalgam Replacement

The vast majority of individuals who have undergone amalgam replacement and the reduction of their mercury body burden have experienced improvements in health that have ranged from minor to startlingly dramatic. Dentistry has relied on and utilized potentially toxic metals in the oral environment because there were no acceptable alternatives available. But, today, there is a surplus of options available for consideration. The most common composite material used is called white stuff.

The white composite is all made with petroleum derivative resins and often with aluminum dioxide, which is quite toxic itself. Unlike aluminum trioxide or sand, aluminum dioxide can have very strong reactions in the body. The newer materials available on the market today are referred to as bonded resin ceramics, composite resins or just composites. Although there are several types available, their composition is essentially one of a quartz-filled Bis-GMA resin. The data produced by studies on these materials indicates a very high degree of biocompatibility when properly placed.

A key feature of composite plastics is their extremely large molecular size, which prevents penetration of body cells. However, some composites contain elements such as aluminum, which can be harmful if they're not bound to the material. The newer composites being used haven't been around long enough to be subjected to years of wear with longitudinal studies. However, there are several 5-7 year studies that indicate wear characteristics are as good, if not better, than amalgam. Some benefits of the composite materials are:

  1. They do not contain mercury.
  2. They are esthetically pleasing. When you smile, people do not see black, gray, or silver areas. All they see is what looks like natural tooth color.
  3. They do not generate any electrical currents and therefore do not help to corrode any other metallic fillings or restorations you may have in your mouth.
  4. There is less loss of your natural tooth structure because the dentist doesn't need extensive preparation for the new materials.
  5. The end product using these materials can truly be called restorations rather than fillings.

Composite Materials

Which composite your dentist uses is very important. Many people seeking mercury removal are sensitive to other chemicals. Some chemicals may be in one composite and not another. helping to determine which composite or other dental material might be better for you is the purpose of compatibility testing. There are many methods including blood testing, kinesiology, electro acupuncture as per Voll (EAV), or electro-dermal screening. Individual dentists may use the most chemically inert filler for composite filling materials, which is quartz. Most new composites do not use quartz, but various glasses and ceramics that contain heavy metals which are added so the fillings show up on x-rays, making it easier for dentists to tell the difference between the tooth, filling, and possible new decay.

The heavy metals added are barium, strontium, the most common being barium. Barium does leach out of the fillings and is associated with breast cancer. In the mouth, everything leaches. If you really wish to be metal-free, then the composite you use must be metal-free. There aren't too many composites without heavy metals because dentists want them to show up on x-rays. They're used to seeing the mercury fillings on x-rays and it's more comfortable for them to see the composites the same way. The goal of the ADA and manufacturers is to have a composite that handles just like mercury fillings so dentists can switch effortlessly. Amalgam doesn't restore anything.

Composites are bonded to remaining tooth structure, are thermally insulating, and, with the bases and bonding agents used to place the composite, there is much more protection for the pulp and enamel structure of the tooth. In fact, tooth strength increases, and the tooth can be restored to up to 98% of its predecayed state. Today, there is a much wider selection of materials available in dentistry that can be used as suitable alternatives to the metal. For example, there are products available that are heat and pressure cured, which imparts different structural and finishing properties to the final product. These types of materials are excellent for metal free crowns and for cosmetic dentistry applications such as thin laminates that can be bonded to teeth to cover bad stains, or to cover diastemas (spaces between teeth). There are also porcelain laminates and veneers being used for cosmetic applications; and there are metal-free ceramic and/or glass crowns available.

There is now a metal-free partial denture material available. These flouropolymer thermoplastic materials are chemically inert and possess remarkable stability. We have in our mouths (1) oxygen, which can cause metal to give up electrons by a process called oxidation (just like on your car when it starts to rust); (2) strong and weak acids from our food and drinks, such as coffee, tea, colas and citrus juices that can cause a chemical action to occur in the metals. (3) Heat and temperature differences caused by friction and from chewing as well as from the hot and cold food and drinks that we ingest.

All of these are capable of exciting or generating activity in metal. Where do we stand when we have metal in our teeth like amalgam, or Nickel or chromium or aluminum, etc.? What we have, is a potential electrical generating plant. Everything needed for electrons to flow from point to point is present. We also have tissue composed of millions of cells that all have some of the electrolytes around them or inside of them. We also have nerves that, for this over-simplified description, can act as transmission lines carrying electric charges to other parts of the body. When an amalgam filling is placed in a tooth, it is subjected to all the chemicals we put in our mouths (which are part of our normal intake of food and drink), and also to some of those produced by our own bodies. The acid or alkaline status of our saliva will vary with our food intake and individual body chemistry.

All of this starts corroding or rusting away that amalgam as soon as it is installed. That's one reason why you periodically have to have amalgam fillings replaced when they become loose and fall out. Besides the chemical corrosion in our mouths, we also have the corrosion that can be caused by the electrical activity previously discussed. We have both of these factors increasing the corrosion of the amalgam, which, in the process, is releasing metal ions into our saliva. This corrosion may also reduce the strength of the filling and cause increased marginal breakdown of the amalgam. There are processes by which mercury (and other metals) is continually being released as vapor and abraded particles. Electrogalvanic activity associated with metal in the mouth is not a new discovery or phenomenon. Dr. Henry S. Chase of St. Louis and Dr. S.B. Palmer of Syracuse N.Y. first discussed it in scientific literature in 1878. There have been a tremendous number of studies published since that date, all confirming the electrical discharge phenomenon associated with metals in the mouth.

"If you have something that's been put in your mouth that you can't dispose of in a waste basket without breaking environmental protection laws, there's no point in keeping it around, there's no point in taking that type of risk - there's no point in exposing people to any level of mercury toxicity if you don't have to...... .....there is no doubt in my mind that low levels of mercury present in the brain could cause normal cell death, and this could lead to dementia which would be similar to Alzheimer's disease.... We can't go inside a living human being and look at their brain, so we have to work outside, and do scientific experiments such as we've done. And to the best that we can determine with these experiments, mercury is a time-bomb in the brain, waiting to have an effect. If it's not bothering someone when they're young, especially when they age it can turn into something quite disastrous."--Dr Boyd Haley, Professor of Medicinal Biochemistry, University of Kentucky.

Mercury Vapor

Silver mercury fillings are not stable. These fillings emit mercury vapor at a rate of 2.8 micrograms per cubic meter of air breathed in the resting state, and their emission rate accelerates dramatically (as high as 49 mgs) after minimal mechanical, chemical, and temperature stimulations. It is also very volatile. This means that "metallic" mercury gives off mercury vapor when agitated, compressed or exposed to increases in temperature. Mercury vapor--which is colorless, tasteless and odorless--if inhaled into the lungs, passes into your bloodstream for distribution to all body tissues. It is at this point that biotransformation begins. Some of the mercury vapor remains unchanged, and some of it is oxidized. (This means to remove a pair of hydrogen atoms and to combine with oxygen. Chemically it means the increase of a positive electrical charge and the decrease of the negative charge, which in effect ionizes the vapor). The unchanged portion exists dissolved in the blood lipids (fats). The toxic effects are produced by that portion that is oxidized into mercuric ions which occurs partly in the blood, partly in the tissues but mainly in the red blood cells.

Hg vaporizes and corrodes in the presence of more noble metals, gold, through all surfaces of the fillings. Most enters the blood stream of the jawbone directly. All kinds of stimulation release it: Chewing, chewing gum, tooth brushing, -cleaning, -polishing and bruxism. Five years old fillings have lost 25%, after 10-15 years half the Hg has left them.

It easily passes the intestinal wall, helped by emulsified fat, oxidizes quickly in body fluids is by far the main source of free radicals splitting any compound hit. It creates oxidative stress.

It attacks sulphur containing proteins, enzymes, some hormones and DNA and sets them out of action. Selenium similarly, e.g. in the enzyme that generates our most important antioxidant glutathione.

It forms cytotoxic organic Hg. Our streptococci in the plaque directly on the fillings, in the throat and alimentary canal do it. It penetrates protecting barriers, cell membranes, blood/brain and blood/retina, the placenta and the mammary glands. It accumulates in the brain of the fetus/baby.

The final compounds are deposited anywhere in the body. They are extremely water insoluble.

Several researchers, beginning with Jernelov in 1969, have demonstrated the microbial conversion or methylation of mercury by various microorganisms. This was demonstrated in the laboratory as well as inside the bodies of animals. In 1975, Edwards and McBride demonstrated the methylation of mercuric chloride in human feces. It was also in 1975 that Rowland, Grasso and Davies determined that most strains of staphylococci, streptococci, yeasts and escherichia coli found in the human intestine (these are bacteria and yeasts of different forms and shapes that are normally present in the human gut) were capable of methylating mercury. It was in 1983 that Heintze and his associates made the startling discovery that saliva can also methylate mercury being released from the amalgam fillings.

Confirmation of the escape of mercury vapor and ions from amalgam dental fillings is provided by The World Health Organization (WHO) Environmental Health Criteria 118 document (EHC 118) on inorganic mercury. It clearly states that the largest estimated average daily intake and retention of mercury and mercury compounds in the general population, is from dental amalgams, not from food or air. Mercury vapor inhaled into the lungs is absorbed almost 100 percent and immediately passes into the bloodstream. It takes approximately four minutes before mercury is converted or oxidized into an ionic state from its elemental vapor state. While in its elemental form, mercury vapor is lipid (fat) soluble and readily passes through the blood-brain barrier or the placental membrane.

It can also accumulate in other organs and tissues of the body. The estimated average daily intake of mercury from dental amalgams is 3.8 - 21 micrograms per day. Two-thirds of the body burden of mercury is derived from the mercury vapor released from amalgams. The static, unstimulated release of mercury vapor from amalgam fillings, which goes on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, is a major contributor to total mercury body burden. Large amounts of mercury vapor are released during chewing. After only ten minutes of gum chewing, there is an average increase in mercury release of 15.6 times more than during the resting state in test subjects. That converts to a 1,560% increase in mercury release.

"The World Health Organization has calculated that the average human daily dose of mercury from various sources are: Dental amalgam = 3.0-17.0 mg/day (Hg vapor) Fish and Seafood = 2.3 mg/day (methylmercury) Other food = 0.3 mg/day(inorganic Hg) Air & Water = Negligible traces (NOTE mg = Micrograms)" (World Health Organization Figures, from Environmental Health Criteria 118: Inorganic Mercury, Geneva, 1991. These figures confirm Amalgam as #1 average source for Environmental Mercury exposure.)

"You wouldn't take a leaky thermometer, put it in your mouth, and leave it there 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Yet that's exactly what happens when an amalgam filling is installed in your mouth."--Dr Michael Ziff.

Mercury Vapor Analyzer

The Jerome 431-X Mercury Vapor Analyzer uses a patented gold film sensor for the detection and measurement of toxic mercury vapor in the air, including the air in your mouth. It is a portable hand-held unit, weighing only seven pounds that can easily be carried to locations where there is a concern about mercury. It is the same unit used for chemical toxicology testing by OSHA and the EPA to monitor industrial hygiene, mercury spill cleanups and mercury exclusion testing. It is also suitable for monitoring mercury concentrations in a dental office during a daily routine.

The simple push-button operation allows users to measure mercury levels in just seconds. The detection range is from 0.000 to 0.999 mg/m3 Hg. The gold film sensor is inherently stable and selective to mercury, eliminating interference common to ultraviolet analyzers, such as water vapor and hydrocarbons. When the sample cycle is activated, the internal pump in the 431-X draws a precise volume of air over the sensor. Mercury in the sample is adsorbed and integrated by the sensor, registering it as proportional change in electrical resistance. The instrument computes the concentration of mercury in milligrams or nanograms per cubic meter, and displays the final result in the LCD readout.

The 431-X includes features not available in older Jerome models. When attached to either a data logger or computer, the analyzer automatically regenerates the sensor when it becomes saturated and then resumes sampling. An improved film regeneration circuit makes the sensor last even longer. It can operate up to six hours on a fully charged nickel-cadmium battery.

This analyzer can easily be used to measure mercury vapor concentration on a patient before and after chewing a piece of gum for 5 minutes. Chewing, or tooth grinding, increases the heat between teeth and, thus, enhances the release of mercury from amalgams.

This is an insightful eye-opener for those skeptical dentists who still refute the possibility of mercury leaking out of dental amalgams and their own health and their patients’ health being in jeopardy by their refusal to acknowledge something that is clearly visible with this machine.

Some reported measurements of dental patients’ oral mercury vapor have been twice the OSHA standard of 50 µg/cubic meters which would place them in violation of the OSHA standard based on an employee’s 8-hour work exposure for a 40-hour work period seven days a week. Once measurements are taken, you will realize that the most toxic spaces may not be at one of the EPA’s superfund sites, but simply right under your nose.

Mercury vapor is released when you chew or grind. Additionally, minute rusted particles of the amalgam are being abraded and taken up by your food or saliva and swallowed. Intestinal enzymes and bacteria both produce methylmercury, an even more toxic form than elemental mercury, may act upon these minute particles of mercury filling. Although several sources contributing to the domestic mercury concentrations have been identified, human wastes (feces and urine) from individuals with dental amalgam fillings are believed to be the most significant source--greater than 80 percent. Conventional amalgam was routinely placed until 1976, when the new state-of-the-art amalgams (50% mercury and 30% copper) were introduced. They emit up to 50 times more mercury than the earlier, conventional amalgam fillings. That means that every new high-copper amalgam filling placed today has the effective toxic equivalent of fifty of the older amalgam fillings. If other fillings are in the mouth, such as gold crowns, nickel crowns, and removable bridges or braces, the mercury emission further increases from the amalgam. This is due to the electrical current generated by the presence of dissimilar metals in an electrolyte such as saliva. Heat will reliably increase the rate of escape of mercury vapor from amalgam fillings. Vapor detectors, held above amalgams, revealed an increase from 3 micrograms to over 500 micrograms ten seconds after a hot drink was swallowed.

"Worldwide there are over 4000 research papers indicating mercury is a highly toxic substance. How can dentists be so thoughtless as to place one of the deadliest toxins in existence *two* inches from our brain?"--Tom Warren

"The mercury uptake from amalgam is the dominating source for inorganic mercury in the central nervous system and is the major source of total mercury uptake in the population."--Maths Berlin, a leading Swedish toxicologist

Fresh Cilantro

Make Cilantro the first know substance that mobilizes Mercury from the CNS.

The active principle is unknown.

Dried Cilantro does not work in my experiences, which suggests that the active substance is in the volatile fat-soluble portion of the plant probably an aromatic substance.

When autonomic response testing is used, rapid changes in the brain and spinal cord after Cilantro consummation can be demonstrated , also the appearance of Mercury in tissues where it was no previously found, i.e., liver, intestine as a result of mobilization in the nervous system.

Parsley also works, but often has Gastrointestinal side-effects at appropriate doses.

I suggest fresh cilantro blended with fresh fruits as pineapple , orange juice .

CLINICAL INTERVENTIONS

  1. Minimize exposure!  Prevention is always better than treatment of symptoms. Be aware of your environment, what you eat and drink, what you apply to your skin and chemicals used in the home or at work.  If a mercury thermometer or mercury switch breaks, carefully clean up the metallic mercury residue. Waste disposal facilities usually have a way to dispose of toxic substances.
  2. With special laboratory tests, www.doctordata.com experienced health care professionals can evaluate the mercury load within the body. This can be done by measuring whole blood levels. Urine can also be used and but hair is valid only for mercury. This should be performed by a reputable laboratory, on the order of and under the supervision of a licensed health care professional. When urine is measured, no chelator should be given that could increase provoked excretion and cause false positives.
  3. DMSA can be used to remove mercury and is taken by mouth.  DMSA binds with mercury, arsenic, lead, and probably with antimony, bismuth, and gold, hastening excretion from the body. The usual adult dose for mercury removal is 500 mg DMSA (five 100 milligram capsules) on an empty stomach on first arising in the morning with a glass of water or juice, and no food for another 30 minutes. This dose is taken 3 days per week with at least one day between each dose.  Monday, Wednesday and Friday is a convenient schedule. This is continued for 3 months. Then wait another month without DMSA before retesting mercury levels in the body, allowing mercury to equilibrate with blood and body fluids.
  4. EDTA has little or no effect on mercury in the body, probably because mercury binds more tightly to other molecules and is present as organic methyl mercury. Mercury removal is the one problem for which oral treatment is the best choice, using DMSA by mouth.
  5. Nutritional supplements magnesium and selenium, along with a wide variety of other essential micronutrients, can act as partial antidotes to mercury and other metallic toxins.
  6. Detox Max Plus
