Since I’ve been affected by the neurotoxin called “mercury” and have invested considerable time and resources into this topic, it seems appropriate for me to provide some resources here. I have blogged about my own health issues related to mercury poisoning. My beloved husband saw my telling test results, witnessed the process of detoxification, and has championed the benefits in improved health that have followed. Then I realized that there is some background information that I may not have shared with him or in Hope Beyond. Steve still has questions. Maybe you do too, Gentle Reader?
Let’s start with a basic video from a scientific perspective of a lab. Looks like mercury is indeed toxic and gives off dangerous vapors:
Now apply the information to a tooth in a human body and the typical scenarios people experience when it is in their mouth. Note that other studies show body burden increasing within hours not just 30 days:
Here’s more detail about dental amalgams, its effects, and how the rest of the world has addressed mercury toxicity; this one is older and a little quirky. They call for more research (and that research is now available):
But how can mercury affect the body? Here’s another genteel overview from a dentist with some studies cited and an explanation of the general mechanisms of action. She is one of many, many who have published videos on this subject. Note the opening remarks about the lungs (which is where most mercury enters the body via vapors):
The dentist noted above also has a video series that is well thought out, easy to understand, and contains nice graphics with no hype graphics.
What has been discussed in the videos above is inorganic mercury. To round out this introduction I must add another form which is “organic” or methylmercury from fish. Check out this case study from a city devastated in Japan by mercury from industrial waste. If you watch my videos on YouTube you will see how I can relate to the wretched convulsions of Minamata Disese. Skip to other videos in the series on Minamata Disease for additional history too:
In the future I will chronicle my own discovery of mercury poisoning, the best treatment for me, and how reducing toxicity affected my health. Just recently I have found that detoxing from mercury is the largest part of my restoration to health. For the treatment approach that I would recommend as a fellow sojourner (not as medical advice!), please see the Mercury Toxicity Overview page of this website.
And please be encouraged, Gentle Reader. We are going to get well! JJ
