Celebrating a Mercury Free Mouth!

Amalgam Dental Revision

Yesterday I had my second and final visit to get my amalgam teeth fillings taken out and replaced with a compatible material.  That first step is done, and I’m SO glad, but I’m not fooling myself… I know there are months and possibly years of mercury detox ahead of me.  This picture is of me – fully prepped (sans oxygen in this picture) for removal from my mouth of one of the most hazardous materials known to man… mercury.

There is a huge list of mercury poisoning symptoms.  Mine include:

  • extreme irritability
  • indecision
  • memory loss
  • inability to concentrate
  • chronic fatigue
  • insomnia
  • withdrawal
  • numbness in limbs
  • metallic taste and metallic smelling hair at times
  • chronic dizziness/nausea
  • low blood pressure
  • heart murmur (benign)
  • poor immune response
  • candida overgrowth
  • chronic headaches
  • kidney infection
  • trouble conceiving and miscarriage
  • in previous years, persistent depression

…to name a few.  By far, the worst thing I’ve struggled with since I was in my late teens is chronic fatigue – it’s debilitating.  It’s not normal and I always knew there was something ‘wrong’ with me, though no doctor could ever find anything abnormal.  Over the years I’ve prayed for answers and my journey has led me here.  You can read more about this in my first post about safe amalgam removal.

There are many safety precautions that must be taken during the removal process.  In the picture you will see the blue rubber dam over my mouth with only my teeth poking through, to protect me from any falling mercury as it is chunked out of my teeth.  You can also see that I am mostly covered up, for similar protection, and the big white vacuum hose under my chin to suck out the mercury vapors being released into three levels of filtration.  In the room is also a negative ion generator.

I had a separate oxygen supply, took large doses of liquid vitamin C before and after, as well as activated charcoal.  Removal is done is quadrants, with highest charged quadrants taken out first.  (I had seven fillings total.)

The reason for such precautions is because many people get their amalgam fillings removed randomly and end up with serious nervous system diseases.  This is a highly toxic metal that is treated as hazardous waste in dental offices (what is it doing in our mouths???).  And CA proposition 65 requires this warning label in all dental offices:

“WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.”

It just makes my heart ache to think about mercury poisoning having anything to do with our troubles conceiving and suffering miscarriage(s).  But on the good side, this whole revision and subsequent mercury detoxing could be an answer to that painful life challenge.

Chronic Fatigue and Safe Amalgam Filling Removal

Since I was in my late teens I’ve suffered with severe chronic fatigue.  Like, I could literally take a three hour nap at any given time, I sleep on average nine hours per night, and wake up feeling like I never went to sleep.  I’m usually foggy-headed, lethargic, and moody.  Recently, I’ve noticed it takes constant effort just to keep my eyes focused.  My reading comprehension is horrible.

Many a doctor’s visit have I left feeling defeated and hopeless.  “Your blood work looks fine.”  “Nothing is wrong with you.”  “There’s nothing we can do.”  I’ve tried different diets, exercises, herbs, vitamins, you name it.  That nap is constantly calling my name.

A few months ago, I came across and watched a documentary called, The Beautiful Truth.  Though it is mostly about an alternative cancer cure, called The Gerson Therapy, there is a segment on Amalgam tooth fillings.  Most of us who have had fillings from the 50s through the 90s, likely have these Amalgam, or Silver, fillings.  These fillings contain mercury in them – one of the most toxic substance known to man.  In this segment, they showed a demonstration of the mercury that is constantly vaporizing into our mouths.  You can view in this clip:

I looked into mercury poisoning further and discovered that all of my symptoms could be related.

Even though I can’t prove that my amalagam fillings are my problem, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that they can’t be good for me.  They are treated as hazardous waste in all dental offices…

Through Dr. Huggins, the leader behind the amalgam free movement, I found a local dentist who practices the Huggins Protocol of safe amalgam removal.  Unfortunately it is a very expensive undertaking to have amalgam fillings removed and replaced, especially if you have 7, like me!  Fortunately, I was able to woo Dr. Partrite with my Internet Marketing skills and we were able to agree on a trade.  I am ever so grateful!!!  I trust that he will be as happy with what we can do for him, as I am with what he is doing for me.

Today I had the first part of my revision :-)

I am ever grateful for answers to prayers and the Lord’s continual guidance and care in my life.  Of course, any positive changes in my health will be documented.
