Cleanse Smart…Naturally…Healthy Mercury Detox…The Way Your Body Was Meant To…
Intro – Part 1
This will make more sense to you if you read the various Parts..1 through 6 in order…
I originally was going to put all of this information into an eBook and then sell it online to those who wanted to both know the absolute truth about mercury and how to do a cleansing detox..to cleanse smart with a natural mercury detox. But then I started thinking about the vast majority of my mercury toxic patients over the past 3 decades of my practice, people who were sick all the time, forever contracting virus, bacterial infections and even worse.. and it dawned on me…
1) These people have often been everywhere…spent enormous amounts of money…and were still suffering by the time I saw them.
2) Were confused by the vast amount of misinformation and drivel out here both on the internet and in practitioners’ offices who just simply ‘Don’t Get It!’..
So..I’ve decided to just put it out here..for FREE…learn and get well, I say. These are the facts..it’s what works…its what I’ve been doing for those 3 decades and I pass it to you and all mercury victims. So let’s get going…
Mercury detoxification from the body’s cells is probably one of the most controversial areas of alternative medicine today. Mercury has been linked with everything from autism, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue to autoimmune disease such as Multiple Sclerosis, liver disease symptoms, gastrointestinal stress to even various types of dermatitis. A full spectrum, indeed.
There are both natural addendums to use as well as abundant information on the use of pharmacological agents. I want to make something very plain here…the natural, healthy detox is THE way to go. In order to effectively and permanently accomplish a natural detoxification of mercury or any other ‘non-self’ substance (xenobiotics), one needs to follow the biochemical pathways of the human body and while doing this, repair what was sub-functional.
The chemical ‘chelators’ around (DMSA, DMPS, BAL EDTA, etc) are old, antiquated and yes, can be used for heavy metal detox, but are full of risks and side effects. They are rough and literally ‘rip’ out some metals..(and not all of them..but unfortunately..some of the good ones) leaving ‘transitional’ molecules which are free radicals and very oxidative. The very thing you are trying to heal.
Again, as in any issue, the truth has to lie within the realm of biochemical and physiological function of the body. To assume that a particular herb or supplement will bind or chelate out mercury just because it does in the environment, (chlorella, for example) has absolutely no scientific or biochemical merit.
Types of Mercury:
Most mercury exposure for humans is from larger fish, preservatives in vaccines (thimerosal), industy (coal-fired manufacturing, dental amalgams and chlor-alkali plants which use mercury in the process of making plastics, pesticides, PVC pipes, etc.) Methylmercury is the form mainly from fish. It is found mostly in the red blood cells, but the good news is that form is usually excreted fairly quickly….providing your mercury detox pathways are in order..more on that later.
Mercury vapor from dental amalgams and inorganic mercury (Inorganic mercury compounds are formed when mercury (symbol Hg) combines with elements other than carbon, such as chlorine, sulfur, or oxygen… the mercury from vaccines is this type. Elemental mercury is a form of inorganic mercury.) is NOT eliminated well from your body and is the main form found in the brain. Methylmercury is ultimately converted to inorganic mercury if not excreted.
The effects on infants and children from methylmercury is dose dependent. Severe symptoms were seen at levels of 100 mgm/kg/day…mild symptoms at 10 mgm/kg/day and sub-clinical or hardly noticable at 1 mcg/kg/day. Symptoms include late development of walking and talking and decreased performance on neurological testing. Keep these figures in mind when I get to the dosing resulting in the ‘normal’ vaccine schedule recommended in North America.
List of common Sources:
Mercury is everywhere including mercury vapors in ambient air, ingestion via drinking water, fish, vaccines, occupational exposures, home exposures including fluorescent light bulbs, thermostats, batteries, red tattoo dye, skin lightening creams, and over-the-counter products such as contact lens fluid and neosynephrine, dental amalgams..just to name the most common.
Amalgam exposure is estimated to be from 3 to 17 micrograms per day from slow corrosion of fillings, chewing, brushing, drinking hot liquids and grinding. Absorption is about 80% for mercury vapor and nearly 100% for oral absorption. It is primarily distributed in the kidneys and brain and readily transferred to the fetus via the placenta. It is eliminated via the urine, feces,(largest part) expired air, and breast milk.
