04/13/2010: Debra from Medford, Or: "I have both candida and mercury toxicity. I don't know how I was able to live until the age of 42 with complete abandon while having a mouth full of toxic mercury since I was a kid, but such was the case.
I'm still scratching my head as to what could have caused this candida. Surgery? Too many herbal extractions recommended by someone who was attempting to help me treat breast cancer? I honestly don't know. What I do know is that I was diagnosed with heavy mercury toxicity and got all amalgams removed. That was nine years ago.
The breast cancer is under control, but the intestinal fungus rages on, and this is the year to face it. I've been eating low carb since the beginning of the year. That just made me worse. Then I incorporated coconut oil (6 tablespoons a day). That was great...for about a week or two. Then chronic constipation returned. Today I am adding baking soda (1 tsp in am and 1 tsp in pm) to help alkalinize the system.
My question is this: if you have chronic constipation due to candida, which is exacerbated by your mercury toxicity, how can you properly chelate the mercury out of your system if you are always constipated?"
04/14/2010: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "Hi, against constipation there is a lot you can do: eat dried prunes, eat fruit first things in the morning (all fruit worked for me but the doctor recommended kiwis), drink a cup of tea or a glass of warm water first thing in the morning or a spoon of mollasses (eventually diluted in the water), maybe start using coconut oil in your diet? My intestines eventually learned how to work by themselves and nowadays I need to pay attention that they don't work too much."
04/15/2010: Carmen from Nova Scotia, Canada replies: "Hey, BEST OF LUCK finding the right answer for YOU. Try googling Diatomaceous Earth. I have recently read some claims regarding both candidia and heavy metals. To get things "moving" I am anticipating the arrival of the dandelion and stinging nettle in my back yard, both claim regularity( so much more) with little or no side effects. I always enjoy a good cup of tea. :)"
05/18/2011: Teri In T Town from Tacoma, Wa, Usa replies: "I used Chlorella for years after I had my mercury fillings removed. It helps to remove heavy metals and helps keep you alkaline as well.... Plus I felt great. You can find a good one on Mercola's."
08/15/2011: Ll2 from Boulder, Co replies: "Check out Andy Cutler's mercury removal protocol on the web. It's the ONLY protocol that actually works without causing big damage to your body along the way. & he explains why it works (basically, mercury attaches to thiols, and Alpha lipoic acid has two thiols, unlike chlorella which has only one--so chlorella can cause BIG problems). It's very inexpensive, he's not trying to sell anything and it actually works!"
08/09/2009: Gean from Salina, Ks: "I had mercury amalgams for 34 years and recently had them safely removed. I can't prove a definite connection, but whenever I take lots of cilantro and chlorella or any other such detox, my wrist watch stops, or the light on my wrist watch stops working even though the battery tests OK. This has happened for years, before and after I had them removed. I think it might be the increased electrical activity from the heavy metals pulled out of deep tissue and circulating in the system. Has anyone else experienced this? (If this is so, no wonder it causes so much havoc in the human body)."Replies
02/15/2010: Matt from Tallahassee, Fl replies: "Mercury can cause SOO many problems, it's insane (especially if you're lacking a certain gene, GSTM1, to detox it). If you have mercury fillings, do whatever you can to get that toxic stuff out of your body. It has sent me through a 2 year health roller coaster seeing everyone from gastroenterologists, to multiple cosmetic dentists, to ER doctors, to allergy/immunologists, the list goes on. I've seen over 15 M.D.'s in the past 2 years and not a single one of them linked it to the mercury... it wasn't until I started taking lots of cilantro and lime juice that I started realizing just how much mercury I had in my system. NOTE --- don't do any hardcore heavy metal detoxing until AFTER you get your fillings out. A great resource for finding a biological dentist is: http://www.iaomt.org/ . They are great!
The symptoms I was having from mercury were:
EXTREME mental foggyness
Soreness all over
MAJOR shortness of breath
Blurry vision (prescription more than doubled over past 2 years)
GALLSTONES (had to go to the ER at 4AM, thinking I was having a heart attack)
Increased shortness of breath when I would get in a NEW CAR (something strange about the scent)
The list goes on...
Best thing you can do in the mean time, prior to getting the fillings out... is to boost your immune system and get your methylation trains running and your glutathione (master detoxer) levels up.
Good way to get in balance is to take HIGH QUALITY (from well researched company's) vitamins and minerals, at least the following each day(take twice a day, once w/ breakfast and once w/ dinner):
*High quality multivitamin
*Calcium and magnesium
*Vitamin D3 (colecalciferol)
*Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA)
*Methylation factors: folate, B6 and B12 (methycobalamin)
Best of luck to everyone!!! And a big thanks to the contributors of this site. Together we can change the health of the world."
02/27/2010: Faithinhealing from Forest Park, Ohio, Usa replies: "I'm suffering greatly with my fillings and I think EVERYTHING is related to them and not until recently did I finally understand the connection. I have extreme mood swings, adrenal problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, etc. I've heard conflicting stories about having the fillings removed, I'm detoxing and they are still in, but wonder if anyone else out there is detoxing with fillings still in? If definitely isn't easy detoxing with them in, you have to go slow, and stay hydrated!
I'm also wondering how you are doing since you have them removed?"
07/04/2010: Paula from Perth, Wa, Australia replies: "Hi Faithinhealing, After reading about the oil pulling & it's effects on detoxing, I decided to give it a go. I lasted one session & have never felt such immediate pain in my mouth. I have 2 old amalgam filling left & have just had 3 crowns (the ones with the metal inside) & an implant along with a bone graft. Everything in my mouth that had metal ached straight away (except the implant). It's very frustrating because you want the metals out of your sytem, but it hurts to detox... really badly. I will be having the amalgam taken out soon, but the crowns cost me a small fortune & not sure what to do about them. A dentist has suggested i need root canals on the newly crowned teeth, but I could almost buy a house for the price of all that dental work. Arghhhh. Stuck between a rock & a hard spot??"
07/18/2010: Eli from Dallas, Tx replies: "I tried to do the oil pulling and was completely surprised at the intensity of pain it caused. I had not read of anyone having pain with it before. I have had all metal in my mouth removed so the cause cannot be contact with metal. After reading your post I wonder if the pain was a direct result of contaminates remaining in or stored in the mouth and jaw from years of having amalgam fillings (or from who knows what source)? I thought perhaps the pain was from pulling too hard so I tried it again about a week later with very gentle pulls and still experienced the pain. If there are any ideas on this I would sure love to hear them."
01/18/2011: Cary from Miramar, Fl replies: "Dear Matt from Tallahassee, FL:
(or anyone with gallstones and amalgam mercury poisoning)
Matt - We seem to have lots of things in common: from living in FL to the the long list of M.D.s (I've been at it for the past 13 months to no avail). We even share the same symptoms--everything on your list, except for the doubling of the vision prescription.
Thank you for your post and all the great tips you included.
Hope you don't mind, but I have some questions:
1. Did you get your gallstones removed?
2. Did your chelation therapy aggravate your gallbladder symptoms?
3. What chelation method did you use after you removed your amalgam fillings?
I had my 1st gallbladder attack 6 months ago, but I opted to forgo gallbladder surgery (I have about 5-6 calcium based stones that I'd like to try to dissolve first, before trying to expel them naturally). But there are a lot of herbs that are contraindicated for people with gallstones.
Hope you're fully recovered from the A.I.
Thanks again for your post!"
[YEA] 05/20/2009: Amy from Los Angeles, CA: "I had a hypothyroid condition for over 10 years caused by Hashimoto's Disease where my body produced antibodies to attack my thyroid. I was told this auto-immune disease was completely incurable.
I had terrible toxicity symptoms from extreme fatigue, dizzy spells, memory loss, and multiple food intolerances. Anything that had pesticides, especially herbs, caused near anaphlyactic responses.
I was taking 125 mcg synthroid for 10 years. I never felt right.
I found when I took kelp, my thyroid increased but sometimes it went too high.
I did a lot of research on mercury fillings and decided to have a bio dentist remove them safely. I felt worse as they removed several at each visit. On my last visit, something remarkable happened. The next morning after my last amalgam was removed my basal body temperature returned to normal for the first time in my life.
I ended up in the ER because my thyroid became over active from the medication. The doctor looked at me like I was crazy when I told him it was because of my fillings. My tests confirmed that my thyroid was working on its own and I no longer needed medication. I have been free of hypothyroidism for 5 years now!
Please research the effects of mercury on your hormones. My endocronologist now makes all of her patients remove their amalagams. She has found great evidence that women in menopause can not balance their hormones until their old fillings have been replaced with more bio compatible fillings. No more silver!!!
It's also important to use chlorella or a product like ___ ___ ____ to remove remaining mercury immediately following your dentist visit after amalgam removal.
07/05/2009: Dalsan from Portland, OR replies: "Hi Amy,
Your email about having your amalgams removed was very inpiring. How did you go about finding your dentist? Was it terriblely expensive? I have dental insurance, but its not a wide range policy, and I'm afraid most will be out of pocket. You said that you actually felt worse until All were removed. Due to finances I may have to have mine done in stages - am I chasing a dream here? Suggestions? Thanks, Sandi"
02/03/2012: Linda from San Francisco, Ca, Usa replies: "www.amalgam.org is the website of a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating people about the danger of amalgam fillings and helping people find out where they can go to get amalgams out of their mouths safely. They are a source for information only.
DAMS, the name of the organization, stands for Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions and it is a non-profit organization based in Minnesota, in the United States, educating the public on mercury amalgams and other ways that dentistry may affect health.
Through their free information packet I was able to locate an excellent biological dentist right in the same town where I live.
Here is an excerpt from their website:
"...Non-profits to the rescue. DAMS is a tax-exempt educational non-profit organization helping educate people in the US, Canada and elsewhere on these very important dental-health issues. People who wish to get their dental amalgam fillings removed should find knowledgeable practitioners who can remove amalgams safely, with elaborate precautions to protect the patient. Such knowledgeable dentists are not merely "mercury-free" or "cosmetic" dentists; they should be "holistic" or "biological" dentists, meaning that they pay attention to the effects that their work has on the whole person and on his/her underlying health. We must emphasize that it is very hazardous to have mercury amalgam fillings replaced by a "regular" (i. E. Conventional) dentist who does not have the training and equipment to replace the amalgams with elaborate precautions. DAMS maintains a list of holistic (biological) dentists in every state and province who are trained and equipped to replace amalgams safely. Hopefully they will also use better choice replacement materials, use natural, less toxic approaches to gum health and decay prevention (no fluoride) and be aware of the hazards of root canal treatments. To request a list of knowledgeable practitioners in your state or province, please call DAMS at 651-644-4572.
Please remember, whether calling us at 651-644-4572 or e-mailing us at email@example.com, to provide name and full mailing address in order to receive the info guide and our list of holistic dentists in your state; and, if you need a call back, leave your phone number, including area code, and speak slowly in giving your phone number..."
These people do not charge money, and they sell nothing. They are there to help people find out what the dangers of amalgam fillings are, and where to go to get rid of them. They are a clearinghouse (my word) for information and that is all.
[YEA] 04/22/2009: Chris from Venice, CA: "The only things listed here that actually chelate mercury are cilantro (proper dosing schedule unknown) and DMPS (must be taken repeatedly in low doses every eight hours or less - the bad side effects describe below are due to a bad dosing schedule - it's half life is eight hours, and if you take it every other day or something like that, it'll pick up the mercury in your system then drop it off unpredictably when it wears off - hence the bad side effects).
The most effective chelator - to get the poison out of your organs and brain is Alpha Lipoic Acid - in LOW does every *three* hours or less *around the clock*.
For more detailed information, Google Andy Cutler, "Amalgam Illness""
EC: DMPS = Dimercapto-propane sulfonate, a drug not approved by the FDA.
Here's an interesting website about DMPS: http://www.dmpsbackfire.com/default.shtml
02/27/2010: Faithinhealing from Forest Park, Ohio, Usa replies: "I use the cilantro for metal detoxification, fresh cilantro, I use it in my smoothies. Initially, I could not stand but a small amount, now I use 1/2 a bunch and things are better. CILANTRO IS EXCELLENT for heavy metal detox and CHEAP!
Thanks for the tip on the AlA, I'll definitely add it to my protocol.
For those detoxing, it is important to hydrate the body. Dehydration can make detoxing symptoms much, much worse. I learned this the hard way!"
[YEA] 08/24/2007: Kendra Rose from Haiku, Hawaii: "I have now been oil pulling for two months both morning and night. Twenty-eight years ago I was exposed to agent orange here in Hawaii from the pineapple fields. It had gotten into the water supply. I have been ill ever since, I especially suffered from migraines. To make things worse I have heavy metal poisoning that is off the charts.
Two friends put their grandmother's rosaries on me and prayed for me by my request... as I had been feeling so terrible.. kept telling my friends that my blood feels poisoned. That night I found EarthClinic and my prayer was answered. My life has been restored to me. Glory be to Buddha, Marys, Christ, angels and all the Saints! HO!
I have consistent energy. I no longer feel poisoned, my blood feels joyous! I am sleeping so deeply from the very first day I tried it. Now that I feel so good, I understand how deeply sick I've been all this time. My body feels so relieved not to start the day with a toxic overload. A new acquaintance of mine said that since she's known me she can't believe the quality of my skin...
I have tried for over 28 years many modalities, herbal medicines, prescription medicines.. nothing helped me.. I began to feel I was the only person on earth who could not heal... and I'm a healer... I am healing and everyday I am amazed, startled, surprised, delighted that I wake up feeling grrreat! Blessed Be!"
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand: "Heavy metal Detox: Oil pulling with peppermint oil, or in some cases added tea tree. Cod liver oil I think is better than sunflower oil, but the problem seems obvious, they are not easily found and quite expensive.
There are more, but those are the main ones.
Oil pulling removes heavy metals from your body, including the heavy metal filings with exception of ceramic fillings. All this is just my experience. You have to decide yourself to do oil pulling or not. If you don't want to rid of fillings and hence heavy metals, then oil pulling should not be done. A preferred remedy that has less negative effect then oil pulling is a simple mouth detox, which is simply saturated solution baking soda and one drop peppermint mouthwash. This one will have the least problems in that it doesn't remove the fillings, but seems to be protective of enamel degradation."Replies
07/26/2009: Biddy from Co Kerry Ireland, Ireland replies: "Hello Ted, I am very interested in trying oil pulling for my joint pain and suspected arthritis. I have some amalgam/mercury fillings Are you saying that the oil pulling will remove these fillings? Is it dangerous to oil pull with these fillings in my mouth? Will I spread the mercury throughout my body? I am taking ACV for the past 2 weeks for the joint pain and see some improvement for sure but my right hip is still very sore at times. Also is honey an important part of the ACV cure or just a sweetener?
Thank you all for such a fabulous site
EC: Hello Biddy. These questions have already been answered in the OP section http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/oil_pulling.html
and/or on the Oil Pulling Q&A page... http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/oil_pulling_questions.html
07/27/2009: Tavora from Brooklyn, NY replies: "Biddy - not sure how you feel about taking wildcrafted herbs but Solomon's Seal and Mullein leaf are exceptional for relieving (and in many cases) eliminating all sorts of musculoskeletal problems (ie joint/ligament pain, arthritis, bursitis, cervical pain, etc). Like you I have amalgam fillings but haven't had any problems with oil pulling. None have come out to date. Ted recommends if you have been exposed to heavy metals like mercury it is better to take lecithin granules as this is a fat emulsifier that can "pull" the metals out of your tissues and organs as well as bind them more efficiently so they can be removed from the body via the stool.
Please also note - lecithin aids in strengthening the liver! I have been taking it - in addition to other things - and find it helps w/ my clenching at night and low energy levels.
But do consider learning more about the herbs to help w/ your joint pain. I used to have very bad neck/shoulder pain, along w/ a pretty twisted up right knee that wouldn't straighten for anything. It made me so miserable. I've only recently started the Solomon's Seal (as a tincture - 10 drops in 4 oz of water to start 2-3 times a day on a relatively empty stomach) and NOW have ABSOLUTELY NO cramping in the right knee whatsoever!! I drink the Mullein herb as a tea (I hope its ok to share but I use the brand Alvita). The combination is Mullein leaves and flowers (which is fairly standard). If your pain is really bad - I say use the tincture because it is more medicinally potent.
But just so you know: SS is great for rebuilding and healing fractures, broken bones and strengthening the entire musculoskeletal system in general. It can decalcify unhealthy calcium deposits and increase bone density. (Horsetail Shavegrass does this too (ie bone density) but it is an herb that is recommended to be taken w/i cycles - that is 1wk on/1wk off - the literature states it can be irritating to the kidneys w/ prolonged use.) But Mullein on the other hand supports the overall integrity of the body's mucous membranes. That is, it specifically helps to hydrate the synovial fluid surrounding our joints/vertebra so that the skeletal system can begin to re-align itself in order to return to its normal & healthy position. As a result, the corresponding and adjacent muscles, tendons and ligaments begin to release any/all built-up tension. I take both because of a minor fracture I incurred from a bicycle accident couple years back...was told by a chiro that I have calcium deposits built up around my C1 and C2 vertebra.
07/27/2009: Tina from Dayton, OH replies: "can you give the measurements for the baking soda, peppermint oil mix? This would be done the same as oil pulling procedure correct? thank you!"
08/08/2009: Rhonda from Lakewood, Ca replies: "Will oil pulling cause my gold on-lays to come out as well? I have gold, not silver, in my mouth."
08/09/2009: Tina from The Beach, Canada replies: "i would like to assure you that i have had no trouble oil pulling with my teeth. i have two gold inlays"
[YEA] 03/20/2011: Bob from Laurel, Md replies: "You might consider continuing to use sunflower oil with the addition of 1 drop of peppermint essential oil or tea tree oil or even both. Oil pulling is great for controlling the bacteria and other pathogens in the mouth. A great way to control periodontal disease and reduce plaque significantly."
03/20/2011: Micha from Denver, Colorado replies: "Black tea and Green tea are very good for reducing mouth bacteria. Drink 2-3 cups a day. Hold it in you mouth a while before swallowing. White tea might even be better. This works."
Olive Oil, Cilantro and Garlic
[YEA] 08/24/2007: Lynn : "Anywhere where there is coal operated plants, they normally dump into the ocean or rivers or lakes. The average plant dumps about 100 lb. of mercury a year into the ocean. My daughter's physician told her not to eat any fish anymore, that it is much worse than what they tell us."
EC: Lynn, thank you so very much for this heavy metal detox recipe!
[YEA] 08/23/2007: Lynn Prince from San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico, Mexico: "Hello. My daughter about 8 months ago was diagnosed with heavy mercury levels. She was so incapacitated that we thought it was Lyme Disease. From eating fish in Ventura County, California!! We used a formula that leached it out and within about 4 months her blood levels were normal again.
Recipe is as follows as given by a physician in Japan:
1 cup of Extra Virgin organic olive oil (first cold pressed)
2 large bunches of cilantro
8 large cloves of garlic
Puree in blender and take 3 teaspoons a day.
Leaches mercury and heavy metals. Must be careful, tho, if leach out to much too fast can shut down your kidneys and liver.
We found putting it on bread with a tiny bit of parmesan cheese and grilling it was yummy way to get your "medicine""

09/16/2010: Yves from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada replies: "Does the recipe call for 8 cloves of garlic, or 8 bulbs? 8 cloves seems pretty small amount?"

I am also wondering about removing heavy metals from my body.... I do have 5 or 6 mercury fillings... Which I would like to have removed... If something works to detoxify the body of heavy metals...

06/21/2009: JMichael from SF, CA: "Hi. I have seen it asked a few times, with no responses from anyone: How does taking selenium to detox your body of mercury effect one's dental fillings? Will it make the fillings loose and cause them to fall out? Will it pull more mercury from the fillings to absorb into your body and defeat the purpose of trying to detox?"Replies
08/19/2009: Samlaunch from Knoxville, Tennessee replies: "I've been reading about how Selenium provides a cure for my previous thyroid problems. Began taking Selenium on June 7, 2009. I had no idea that over a lifetime mercury had been accumulating in my brain. One atom of Selenium binds with one atom of mercury to form a biologically inactive complex. Basically, Selenium neutralizes mercury. There are so many health problems that accompany mercury poisoning that we receive through vaccines and our environment. Gray hair, tachycardia, disruption of mitochondria function/neuro transmitters, destroys neurons, causes shakes, dangerous to developing babies, makes kids dumber are all affects of Mercury. I add in the part where it makes kids dumber because it really makes us all complacent and subservient. Selenium, Selenium, Selenium: get some! Neutralize the toxins, get better and smarter!!!"
01/19/2010: Jen from R replies: "does selenium also bind with aluminum? as i am toxic in aluminum."
08/27/2013: Hotlava from Seattle replies: "Selenium might act as a chelator in its own, but its best role in detoxification is as a cofactor for enzymes needed to activate glutathione, our most natural, potent heavy metal chelator in our cells. Without enough selenium in our diets, glutathione will be activated less, and not do its detoxifying, free-radical-neutralizing role as much. My understanding is that selenium is first used in the body as a capillary antioxidant, and if there is enough left over, it's sent to glutathione reactions within the rest of our body cells. this would suggest people with metal toxicity would benefit from supplementing with a selenium product, whether food or mineral compound.
Glutathione does naturally chelate with toxic metals, when it's hydrogen group gets spliced off revealing a free sulfur (by the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, requiring selenium)... Mercury loves sulfur, binds fairly well to it (not cemented, but okay enough for detoxing), and I would imagine that aluminum, lead, cadmium, arsenic, and any other heavy toxic metals would as well.
Selenium is also required for the enzyme that converts T4 to T3 in target hormone locations throughout the body, and a defeciency would likely cause high T4 and low T3 levels. Iodine is needed in these reactions as well, so a selenium defeciency is not always the cause...
sign of too much selenium is garlic breath (the body releases it in our breath)."
[YEA] 02/27/2009: Georgia from Duluth, MN: "Selenium for mercury poisoning:
Selenium binds with mercury in the blood & escorts the mercury out to urine, bowels.
The amalgam fillings in the mouth releases mercury vapor & is absorbed through the saliva, open cavities,
How? Under pressure, like during chewing, the grinding process friction under certain psi (per square inch). During this process the mercury molecules goes up to the surface of the tooth causing again the Hg(mercury) to get absorbed through the food ,saliva & so we sawllow it. Imagine the accumulation each time we eat & masticate with those bony chicken. The first & foremost lethal dose of Hg poisoning is through the tooth fillings.
Search more about this topic before you take action. There is so much research supports this theory. In Europe amalgam fillings is banned since 1992.
Google Sweden Geotechnical Institute or Cecilia Toomvalii
I'd like to make it clear that when you decide to get rid of amalgam fillings, you will face a very hard decision. B4 you start the decision making, see how the specialists get the amalgam out. It is cautiously, very very intricate process. The clinic has to be ventilated, & the dentists/specialists/staff looks like astronauts. They look like they are going to another planet looking 4 for weapon of mass destruction.This is b/c of the vapor that is released, during again, the grinding.
This is not a complete protocol in the treatment of HG poisoning. Please read as much as you can. Filling it in is equally dangerous as
getting it out.
My decison was to pull them b/c they are too many.(7+ not surfaces/huge fillings.
It is a huge controversy right now but hopefully the NKIDD/NIH will get rid of it. HG+ Lead( pipes H2O) + other metals is a ticking time bomb.
I am so grateful for the sore throat, IC remedy. My deepest Gratitude to all.
A grateful dentist. I have all the symptoms due to my profession."
03/19/2009: Tiffany from Avon Lake, Ohio replies: "so, is it pointless to detox the mercury if you can't get your fillings removed??"
12/28/2010: Ryanc from New York replies: "I'm confused too... as I can't afford to get my fillings removed/replaced... is it safe to use EDTA for chelation if I have fillings?"
08/16/2011: Saul42 from Ny replies: "Look up American Dental in New York CIty or go to a university where the students are almost ready to graduate as dentists. Under the supervision of a dentist they perform work on you at a very very cheap price. In NYC I had each filling removed for between 40-50 bucks at American dental. At the university my friend had all his fillings taken out for roughly 90 bucks and he had about 5 of them.
Get that crap out of your system. The cost down the line is extremely huge."
05/24/2012: Silvermist from Downeast, Maine, Usa replies: "I didn't go to a special dentist becasue of cost and also we don't have one near me. I just had them all removed by a regular dentist. I drank bentonite clay before going, made sure not to swallow during the procedure and not even breathe when he was grinding out the filling. Brought the clay w/ me and swished and spit in the parking lot bushes when I left (sorry). Did the clay the rest of the day as directed on the bottle.
I HIGHLY recommend spending the dough- I felt better right away and it has continued for 4 months now. I don't feel like I got worse at all after the procedure- so I'm guessing not more than my usual amount of mercury got absorbed from the process."

You can eat it in many ways- add it to salad, guacamole, soups, etc. Juicing it in a green juice is very effective. This herb is very easy to find in the grocery store. It is accessible to almost everyone. Hope this helps. Lisa"

04/30/2013: Anthony from Philadelphia: "Heavy Metals/Colitis
Hi, I have some issues going on. Any advice or help is welcomed. Let me first state the facts: I have ulcerative colitis/proctitis/IBS from symptoms and several colonoscopys done. Now I have always had blood work done, some urine test from idependent companies, and recently hair analysis from Analytical research labs. So, my test are off but I really dont know where to start or what to do. Besides the stomach issues some other issues I have and feel are: Extreme Fatigue, bone/joint fatigue/pain, Calcium/keratin buildup on face and scalp, dry, but oily skin (Seb Derm), Cold and or hot hands, I get hot and then cold with my body, Memory Loss (short term), Burp and gi issues like Extended belly, either constipated or runs, fat malabsorption, horrible sinus issues, always clearing my throat, headaches.... So, abnormal labs or tests that have come back are: Blood Test showed consistently low vit D (25-30 range - I supplement with 5,000 iu daily but never any difference), High FSH (means no sperm). Urine test showed C. Diff toxin, and heavy metals in my system (Thallium was 0. 8mg, which is high - I dont smoke at all - Could it be from filllings in my mouth??), and mercury was high also in urine test. Now, recently my hair analysis (I would post my actual result page but dont know how, I'll email to anyone that can help or like to see, send me your email) showed ALOT!!!
First, the final result is Adrenal Fatigue in exhaustion stage along with heavy metals. Now, specifically some HIGH values are: Calcium, Copper, Cadium, Arsenic, and Aluminum. Some LOW values are: Sodium, Iron, Manganese, Zinc, Chromium, Selenium, Nickel, Colbalt, Molybdenum, Lithium, and no Boron at all in my hair anaylsis!!! I really wish I could actually post this page??!! It would make more sense. Then, at the end, there are mineral ratios and there way outta sort: CA/MG is high, CA/K is super high, NA/MG is super low, NA/K is super low, Zn/Cu is low, Ca/P is high. And, finally, I'm a slow oxidizer!!! So all my ratios are outta wack. I need to resolve my hair anaylsis results because my whole body seems outta wack and this does support it. I just need help; This Hair Anaylsis gives recommendations for supplements but it's not making much difference at all. I feel awful but do have some good days.
Now, supplements I take: Zinc, multivitamin, Cysteine, Lysine, MSM, Ca, MG, boron supplement, biovine supplement for adrenals, and I spray magnesium oil every night on my body. I do take prescription drugs for my colitis - Lialda and canasa suppository. I do think I covered everything. I will add another post if I forgot anything. The hair anaylsis really said to me I have to get myself together fast!!!! But I need alittle help.
Is it smart to get my metals in my fillings removed???? I have about 6 in my mouth! Thanks!!!"

04/30/2013: Leah from Philadelphia, Pa replies: "Dear Anthony from Philadelphia,
From what I have read on Dr Mercola's website, you should get your detox pathways opened again before you have the fillings removed. This is because at the time of removal some mercury vapour or crumbs might still get into your system, so you need to be stong and healthy to withstand that and you need it done by a trained biological dentist.
If you have a naturopath, homeopath, or chiropracter who does nutitional counseling, I would expect them all to recommend certain basic changes in your diet: avoid tap water, juice and soda (fluoride poisoning can cause a host of debilitating chronic illnesses including digestive problems), avoid hyper-processed foods (fried, baked, preserved with chemicals etc), and focus on a paleo-type diet rich in spring water, organic fruits, vegetables, raw milk, eggs, pastured, grass fed meat, healthy fats like coconut, olive, cod liver oil, and grass fed butter etc.
If your digestive tract is really causing you problems with whole foods you could try veggie juice fasting. You also need vitamin B12, C, selenium and sulphur to open you detoxification routes (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mark-hyman/glutathione-the-mother-of_b_530494.html. I have mentioned in the Crohn's page that DMSO, B12, melatonin and pig duodenum (http://simplehealthsolutions.info/a-to-z/dmso-for-crohns-disease/) have worked for that condition and I suspect you would benefit too.
You mentioned that you are taking calcium even though your cal to mag ratio is off. I think you should stop the Cal. To slowly detox heavy metals eat cilantro, spirulina and chlorella. Also the zero sperm count to me indicates you need lugol's iodine which will also help flush bromine, fluorine, chlorine and other heavy metals out. Take it slow so you don't detox too fast. Diatomaceous earth is also another really good detoxifier. Aloe vera is an other fabulous detoxifier. Look up liver cleansing and coffee enimas on this site too. May be a good option for you. All my suggestions should be researched further and discussed with your naturopath to make sure you are getting the right kind of each and not detoxing too fast.
I am concerned that you are still taking Lialda because it can cause side effects such as kidney-liver damage and UC (http://www.lialda.com/lialda-side-effects.aspx). If I were you, I would work with my Dr/naturopath to get off meds. It is highly likely they are contributing to your ill health, especially if they are capable of causing kidney/liver disfunction and UC.
I hope this helps and I wish you well again soon.
PS you can find raw grass fed milk at Reading Terminal Market and Mama's Wellness Joint in downtown Philly."
[YEA] 09/06/2010: Lisa from Coto De Caza, Ca, Usa: "I've been following the Andrew Hall Cutler approach for chelating heavy metals and much of my Chronic fatigue and headaches are gone. He mentions that Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMSA, or DMPS with chelate Mercury from your body. Take small dose (25 mg) every 4 hours for 3-4 days then take 4-5 day break. It will take many rounds to get all the mercury out. Your amalgams must be out of your mouth before you do this. Before chelating with Alpha Lipoic Acid using his method and supplement ideas, I could barely get off the couch. Now after a few years, I am much more active and don't need to take naps anymore. Also, no more daily headaches and migraines only every 2 months instead of a few times a month."
