How Does Mercury Enter Our Body?

Mercury is not good inside our bodies so we should avoid it in every way possible. The most common ways mercury can enter the body include eating fish contaminated with mercury and from mercury amalgam fillings in our mouth. Mercury fillings can “off gas” which means releasing a mercury vapor into your mouth. This is not good so I would advise to speak with your dentists about having mercury fillings removed.

Should I Remove My Mercury Fillings?

When having mercury fillings removed I would recommend you see a dentist who specializes in this area. Specialists make sure they remove all the mercury, whereas other dentists may leave some behind. There are really amazing dentists who remove mercury fillings and if you have multiple fillings.

As a preparation before having the mercury fillings taken out, I would recommend a period of detox such as my colon cleanse. This is a 4-day program which uses specific fibers and bentonite clay. Bentonite clay is believed to attract and bonds to mercury, heavy metals, pesticides and toxins and the fibers help to move them out through the digestive system. You can also use liquid bentonite clay like an ayurvedic oil pull, swishing it around in your mouth for 10-15 minutes to pull out heavy metals and toxins. I would continue with these cleansing programs after the dental work to help mop up any toxins that have leached into the body.

Research on Mercury and Autoimmune Diseases

Recently published research from prominent immunologists has linked mercury to autoimmune disease. These new findings are coming from leading immunologist system specialists who are showing that mercury toxicity (potentially from getting vaccines or getting mercury toxicity any form) is what is potentially leading to autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer’s.

Symptoms of mercury in the body to watch out for include depression and anxiety. If you research symptoms of mercury poisoning and you’re experiencing them, then you might want to consider doing a cleanse regardless if you have mercury amalgam fillings. Remember mercury can come from many different sources. Everybody benefits from cleansing, especially regular detoxes. Get the poison out and get the nutrition in!

Make sure that any clay taken internally is labeled safe for internal use. Do not take within an hour of food for best results and do not take within 2 hours of medications or supplements as it might reduce their effectiveness. Check with your doctor before using if you have any medical conditions or are on any medication.
