The single most effective treatment for mercury poisoning is detox. However, this step can be achieved in a variety of manners. Many natural supplements deliver detoxifying benefits when used frequently and in accordance with suggested dosing.
What is Mercury Poisoning?
Mercury is a naturally occurring substance found in a variety of forms; however, the most concerning is organic mercury. Found in large amounts if different types of fish, organic mercury or methylmercury can cause alarming health conditions including mercury poisoning.
High levels of mercury affect individuals of different ages in different ways; however, several common symptoms of poisoning include learning delays, short attention span, memory deficit, delayed speech and language skills, impaired coordination and lack of motor control. In general, mercury poisoning is caused by overexposure to organic mercury. This substance is found in the highest concentrations in shark, swordfish, king mackerel and tilefish.
Eliminating the overabundance of mercury in the symptom is the main goal of detoxification. Several natural substances aid in this removal process including garlic, cilantro and Brazil nuts. These elements possess unique characteristics that chelate the mercury out of an individual’s system.
Garlic is a natural herb known for its pungent flavor and aroma. It aids in fighting mercury by delivering sulfur and several other nutrients to the system. The sulfur in garlic neutralizes mercury and carries it out of the body.
Another herb, cilantro also aids in the fight against mercury. This substance actually binds to mercury in the bloodstream and then filters it out of the system. Combined with garlic, this herb is considered a superfood for its potent ability to fight mercury poisoning.
Brazil nuts are a food akin to that of a natural supplement. Complete selenium and several other powerful mineral complexes, Brazil nuts natural neutralize mercury toxins and expel them from the body. A mere handful of these nuts each day is enough to fight mercury poisoning.
While a balanced diet incorporates a variety of different fishes, eating too much fish can lead to a toxic amount of mercury in the system. Natural neutralizers like garlic, cilantro and Brazil nuts, however, neutralize the compound and prevent overexposure to the element.

Remedies for Mercury Poisoning
I went to a bad dentist over 20 years ago and after a really few great dentists looked at my teeth, they all said that the first dentist gave me fillings because my molars are deep but it was unessesary and I did not have any cavities. I have not had any cavities ever since.
I wanted to make the mercury filligns fall out naturally and then remineralize my teeth naturally. I did chip my front tooth and my really good dentist muscle tested me and put on a compatible and flouride free composit on that tooth, which I do not want to fall out.
Is there anything that I can do to make the mercury fall out?

Could anyone help me with identifying whether amalgam lodged in my upper jawbone is causing eruptions on my cheek.
I had botched root fillings 15 yrs ago and later found out the amalgam (yes people, he used amalgam as a root filler! ) had been forced through the root into the jawbone. 5 years later another hopeless "dentist" attempted to remove the amalgam from two locations; first above the root of upper left 5 and the second lump around upper left 6. Result: upper left 6 removed wilth huge abscess attached and huge hole drilled above upper left 5 but he missed the amalgam and it is still in there. However, I have a huge gaping hole and masses of bone loss.
I have been on H202 for various reasons and suddenly, lesions appeared on the cheek right above where the amalgam would be. They are not infected but are inflamed. SO unsightly and florid and livid. I thought perhaps they may be a reaction to H202 on the mercury? I tried working out the chemistry but my brain can't do it as I only got O level chemistry many years ago! I don't know if I should leave off the H202 and stop all de-toxing so as not to disturb the amalgam. There is no way I can have more invasive surgery; there is no bone left there to excavate, although I'm sure I could find another sadist dentist to make more mischief there. Nothing applied topically helps the lesions; they just run their course and have got worse as my dose of H202 has increased (up to 10 drops twice a day - but stopping that and inhaling through the mouth 3% 3 times a day).
Many thanks, bcbg75

Hello I have had mercury poisoning or should I say discover that I have mercury poisoning a few months now. I tried chlorella for the first 3 months, did major research but chlorella disbursal to help. My symptoms seemed like they got worse. Facial and body hair is falling out. Hands and feet are tingling. I have a metal taste in my mouth, increased in saliva, and my teeth seem to have changed it's texture also. There more sensitive, I read and have done major research and some sources say that I can even cause teeth to fall out. So now im taking HMD which stands for heavy metal detox. Ive only been taking it for 5 days. I've done research on it and Im concerned about my health, but
Not really worried because I've been in prayer. What can cause teeth to fallout from mercury and is there any thing I can do to prevent this from happening. I definitely need my teeth I'm only 24 years old. The mercury as also caused my blood pressure to rise as well. Thanks for your help

Amalgams: Hi, I wanted to ask about the iodoine in its use for Mecury removal. Does this actually remove mecury from the body or prepare it for removal? Should I be taking something with iodine in order to help remove mercury?

I read your article on Aspergers/ Autism and mercury poisoning. I live in Australia and am concerned about my 3 yr old granddaughter. She has always been a very hyper child since young, but she was always happy and listened and very good. Since October, 2011, something happened, and she has had terrible behaviour problems, anger & rage, defiant and disobedient, nightmares, crying for nothing, screaming, temper tantrums, things like that.
My daughter took her to the doctor, and she said this is not a normal behaviour for a 3 year old, as a lot of 3 yr olds go through this, but my granddaughter is acting differently than just your normal temper tantrums. My daughter took her little one to see a child psychologist, and he wasn't too concerned at all, and told my daughter that the little one needed more sleep.
However, after reading your article, I am wondering WHERE can a person go to get a toddler tested for Mercury Poisoning? My daughter went to the local GP to get a test, but the doctor told my daughter that they do not do testing for mercury in children. So WHERE AND WHO can we contact to get this poor child tested? I am suspecting something is really wrong with this child and need to help her. Do we need to go to a naturopath/homeopath? I heard of a UPPS, something like that, a urine test to show levels of mercury. Is there no blood test? Hair analysis? What do we do? Can you suggest to me WHO OR WHERE we should go to get her tested for mercury poisoning? Thank you for your help. Donna
