Mercury Poisoning and Oral Chelation Therapy

Mercury amalgams. Source of poisoning

Amalgams of mercury poisoning source

Mercury is a poisonous neurotoxin is everywhere, from drinking water to white flour through cosmetics. Following the lead, mercury is the second most common toxic metal, and both can cause major health problems and mental health. Learning disabilities, developmental delays and behavioral problems are associated with lead, mercury and other heavy metal exposure. A 2000 report of the National Academy of Sciences stated that toxic chemicals and other environmental factors cause about 3% of all neurological and developmental disorders in the United States.

Heavy metals and disease

Mercury and heavy metal toxicity can cause or be confused with chronic illnesses such as depression, fibromyalgia, autism, attention deficit disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and a number of other serious . Children are especially susceptible to exposure to heavy metals. Even small amounts of lead, mercury and other heavy metals may be a threat to the developing brain of a child.

Symptoms of mercury toxicity

Physical symptoms of mercury toxicity include:

  • - Changes in mood.
  • - Depression and / or anxiety ..
  • - Chronic infections.
  • - Food Allergies.
  • - Migraines and / or headaches.
  • - Gastrointestinal disorders.
  • - Visual disturbances.
  • - Chronic discomfort.
  • - Chronic muscle pain or soft tissue.

Oral chelation and heavy metal

If you have been diagnosed with a chronic physical or mental, may ask a health professional about treatment with chelation. The removal of mercury and other heavy metals through a process of detoxification can improve symptoms, or eliminate the symptoms completely.

Oral chelation therapy is widely used for heavy metal detoxification. The most widely used chelator for heavy metal detoxification is EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid). The EDTA binds with heavy metals and excreted by the body. The EDTA is safe and approved by the FDA for treating lead poisoning and toxicity from other heavy metals. The treatment of oral EDTA chelation to eliminate mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum, plus dozens of other toxic heavy metals found in the interior of organs, tissues and bones.

Detoxification is the key to addressing chronic health problems. Detoxification removes the cause or root of the problem instead of simply treating symptoms. In traditional medicine, the symptoms often are dealt with drugs, which can increase the toxicity of the body.

Prevention of heavy metals

After cleaning the body of heavy metals and other toxins through chelation therapy, it is important to prevent future exposure to heavy metals.

Amalgam Fillings

First, avoid the "silver" amalgam fillings and replace them with porcelain fillings. Porcelain is as durable as amalgam fillings, but are more attractive and healthier. Silver fillings contain about 50 percent of the weight of mercury filling. Studies show that even small amounts of mercury can damage the brain, internal organs and suppress the immune system. The World Health Organization reports that the daily intake of mercury from amalgam fillings exceeded the combined intake of all the mercury consumed in food, water and air. An autopsy study in humans found a strong correlation between the number of silver fillings and the amount of mercury found in the brain. Mercury is in the spotlight as a possible cause of Alzheimer's disease.

Thimerosal-free vaccines

Second, attempting to use thimerosal-free vaccines for vaccination of children. Thimerosal is a mercury-based preservative used in vaccines. For each vaccine that contains thimerosal, there is at least one brand without thimerosal. A growing body of evidence linking thimerosal with neurodevelopmental disorders, developmental delay, behavioral problems, autism and attention deficit disorder and behavioral problems.

Avoid toxic foods

Avoid eating foods with seafood such as lobster, oysters and clams that may contain toxic levels of mercury. The tuna, mackerel and swordfish contain the highest mercury levels in fish.

Mercury, lead and other heavy metals are everywhere in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. We may not be able to completely avoid any exposure, but can limit your exposure.

To maintain health and eliminate toxins, people that detoxify your body each year with oral chelation therapy. In addition to chelation to have the habit of regular exercise training is of great help. Sweat release toxins from the body, so any exercise program makes you sweat will help cleanse the body and stimulate the immune system.
