Marie’s Story of Mercury Poisoning
In July of 2001, on the first night of my vacation to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the side of my tooth broke off. It was very rough against my tongue. I wanted to stay in Tennessee the whole week, so I asked a local dentist to put some kind of patch on my tooth to last until I returned to Virginia to see my regular dentist. Immediately after he patched the tooth, I started tasting metal in my mouth.
On August 8th, I saw my regular dentist, who said he did not know why I tasted metal. He drilled, and drilled, and drilled into the “silver” filling in order to resize the tooth for its new crown. I didn’t know that this “silver” filling contained 50% mercury, and I didn’t know that mercury vapors were released when a dentist drills into it. Neither did I know that when you breathe these vapors that the vapors can enter your brain. He did not use anything to protect me from the mercury vapors. (Your dentist probably doesn’t protect you either.) My dentist put on the temporary crown and I went home.
On August 13th, I felt like something moved inside my brain. It did not hurt. It just felt like something was up on the left side tumbling around and sort of tickling my head. It was weird, but I just put it out of my mind.
On August 16th, just before bedtime, I felt a little small circle at the top of my head begin to burn. My scalp was sore to the touch and it tingled all over. I had a slight headache.
On August 17th, I woke up to my whole brain feeling like it was on fire! My brain was jumping inside my skull and my head was throbbing. I started feeling electrical charges surge up and down my body from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. I went to my internal medicine doctor that day, but she had no idea why my brain was burning or why the lymph nodes were swollen in my neck.
I started doing research on the Internet about food additives such as MSG (monosodium glutamate) and aspartame. At first I started avoiding MSG, because I was becoming allergic to a lot of food I could normally eat, such as breads, milk, vinegar, mayonnaise, and spices. My head would throb when I ate the wrong food. When I ate vinegar, a big lump would come out on the side of my head that would burn and ache at the site of that lump. I would cry because of the pain. Sometimes the lump would be at the base of my neck near the brain stem. At other times it would be in a different location on my head. I finally learned to avoid the vinegar.
I was also getting chemically sensitive to perfumes, hairspray, car exhaust, gasoline fumes, smells from tires in the tire store and asphalt paving. It was horrible trying to go to the small church where the ventilation was not very good and everyone in the church wore a different “smell.”
My muscles started aching in my back. I had chronic fatigue. My collarbone hurt, and my nose was so sore I could not stand to put on a pair of glasses. I started getting floaters in front of my eyes and my eyelids were twitching. My ears started ringing. I had increased tingling in my hands and feet. I started keeping a journal of all my symptoms, what foods I ate, and what I was allergic to. I started writing down dates of my all my doctors’ appointments.
I saw two internal medicine doctors, two eye doctors, and one chiropractor who was going to test me for mercury toxicity but later dismissed me because he thought my case was too complicated for him. I saw a neurologist who said that “burning of the brain” was not a symptom of multiple sclerosis. I saw a doctor of osteopathy. A couple of these doctors wanted me to go to a psychiatrist when I mentioned that I had felt something “invade” my brain. I should never have used the word “invaded.”
On August 25th I stayed up all night. I could not sleep because of the taste of metal in my mouth, and I felt nauseated. I called my dentist early Sunday morning and told him I thought I had been mercury poisoned. I called the emergency room to see if they could do a mercury test on me. They asked why I wanted a mercury test, and I told them I thought I had been poisoned by mercury from my dental fillings. They told me that dental fillings could not poison me, and that they did not do testing for it.
A few days later, I let my dentist put the permanent crown on my tooth. I had not done a mercury test, did not really know anything about mercury, and didn’t know what else to do. By this time the metal taste was gone.
The dentist told me in his office that mercury was safe, and that we breathed more mercury in the air than what was in mercury fillings. He told me nothing about mercury vapor coming from those fillings when a dentist drills into it.
My health continued to go downhill. I was very dizzy, disoriented, and confused and things did not “look real” to me. I could hardly remember anything. I wandered around from room to room, not remembering why I was in the room. I lost my car in parking lots because I could not remember to look at the number of the row where I parked when I got out of my car. I could not remember to buy the things on my lists when I went into town. I would have to list every stop to make, and then I would forget to do what was on my list. I could not concentrate or get anything accomplished. I was just so tired. I felt like my whole body had just been shut down. Every afternoon by 2 PM I had to go to bed and lie on a heating pad for hours at a time.
I started having emotional problems and was very angry. One Sunday morning I woke my husband up at 1 AM and screamed at him for an hour. I begged him to help me figure out what to do. I had started reading a book by Dr. Hal Huggins called It’s All In Your Head, about the dangers of Amalgam mercury fillings. My husband would not read very much of the information I found, and was just ridiculing my symptoms. He said I was just reading Quacks. I was begging him to help me, because I was so confused I couldn’t figure out what I was supposed to do next. I had forgotten to have the mercury test run by another physician after the chiropractor had dismissed me. Actually, I didn’t know what kind of doctor could test me for mercury, and I had wasted a whole month without having it done. If my legs were broken I would have known what to do. But when the brain in affected, you can’t function enough to figure out what to do.
That Sunday morning, I went to church and told my friend Susan that I was so confused that I had to have help, because I didn’t know what to do next. I told her that my husband was not helping me figure it out. I was so upset that I got down on the floor and started bawling. The pastor had the women take me in a back room and pray for me. They told me a “spirit of fear” was attacking me. I knew about the spirit of fear. I had often taught about it in my Bible studies at the city jail. They were right. I realized that I had been thinking irrational thoughts, like my husband was going to put me in a mental institution. My husband doesn’t even believe in psychiatrists, so that thought made no sense whatsoever.
At the end of the service, I was in the back of the church talking to the pastor and his wife. I mentioned something about mercury to them and the pastor started to say something about “imagining things in our minds.” Then my husband spoke up and said, “I was just imagining all this.” I let him have it! I stood in the back of the church yelling at him in front of the pastor and his wife while the congregation was leaving! And we were supposed to be ministers! That is another symptom of mercury toxicity – rage.
At other times, if my husband would dare to disagree with me, I would pick up a ceramic flower pot off of the table and throw it at him or hit him with a lamp. We kept my husband’s 83 year old mother in our home and I was her caretaker. When I threw the flower pot at my husband and it came crashing to the floor, she cried and said, “I can’t live like this.”
I finally heard from a friend about an alternative doctor two hours from my home and made an appointment to go see him. I knew about this clinic because I had seen it on the Internet. I tried calling the number, but could not remember to use the area code, so the number did not go through. The clinic was located in Troutdale which would make it a long distance number for me to call. However, I kept confusing the word TROUTDALE with the word TROUTVILLE, which is near my home, and TROUTVILLE would NOT need an area code. Then finally one day my foggy head cleared up enough so that I was able to make the distinction between the two places. So then I used the area code, and the call went through.
The day before my appointment at this clinic, I tried to get prepared. But I could not get my paper work, my tests, lab work and such together without loosing the papers. I would put the papers on my desk right in front of my nose and I would still loose them! I was loosing my glasses every 5 minutes. I finally punched holes in my paperwork and stuck it in a notebook and I tied my glasses around my neck with an eyeglass cord. I struggled to put the papers in chronological order and even though I was a former schoolteacher, I had great difficulty in spelling that day.
I needed to do my laundry in the basement before going to this appointment. I also needed to do chores upstairs. So I handed my mother-in-law a list of things for me to do when I returned from doing the laundry in the basement. I said, “Grandma, please give me this list when I come back upstairs.” If I had laid the list on the kitchen table I would not have been able to find it!
The alternative doctor did a heavy metals test on me but the mercury did not show up at a toxic level. (I hear that this is fairly common.) But high levels of thallium and aluminum did show up. He DID think my symptoms were caused by mercury, especially after I was able to put the dates together concerning my visits to the dentist and the symptoms appearing shortly after my visit. It took me a couple months to put all those dates together because of the confusion in my brain. He gave me a prescription for natural hormones that helped me to begin thinking better. He gave me supplement packets that contained vitamins and minerals, fish oil, primrose oil, and probiotics that would put good bacteria in my stomach and build up my immune system. Since mercury disrupts the enzymes in the GI tract, he gave me enzymes that contained glutamine and other bowel flora. He gave me a prescription of anti fungal medication because mercury causes an overgrowth of yeast in the body.
I am better able to function now. My thinking is better, but not completely normal. Mercury attacks the endocrine system, so it messes up your hormones and thyroid. According to my doctor thyroid tests are not even accurate when you have been exposed to mercury. Test results can all be normal, therefore traditional doctors will do nothing to help you. They either do not believe that you can be poisoned from dental fillings, or that it just happens to sensitive people.
After much prayer and research, I finally found a good biological dentist who took the mercury out of ten teeth. He replaced my fillings and crowns with dental materials that were shown by a Dental Compatibility test to be compatible with my body and not cause an allergic reaction. This dentist told me he had seen other people in his office with mercury in their brains. I had to drive four hours each way for my dental revision. A family member always went with me to my appointments because I was too physically and mentally exhausted after a day of drilling to drive myself home.
When my general dentist put the crown on the tooth, he placed it over top of a mercury filling that he had only partially removed. When my biological dentist removed the crown and the mercury filling under it, he told me there was decay underneath the mercury filling. My biological dentist told me that a crown should never be placed over a mercury filling. That is why I was up all night tasting metal and sick on my stomach. The combination of metals (probably nickel) in the inferior grade of the porcelain crown was interacting with the mercury that the general dentist left in the tooth. It caused a chemical and electrical reaction that made the tooth start decaying very fast. Thus large amounts of mercury started being released from the mercury filling underneath, and caused me to feel very sick.
It is now over one year later and I am still in the process of going through detoxification, known as chelation (key lay’ shun), with low doses of the sulphur-based prescription drug called DMSA. It is made especially for me by a compounding pharmacist. It grabs hold of the mercury in my brain and pulls or chelates it out of my body’s tissues and into my urine. I spend a lot of time in the bathroom because when mercury is leaving your body your frequency of urination is very much increased. I can feel the DMSA “pulling” in my brain. I also felt it pulling the mercury out of my eyes. That was the reason that I had all those floaters. I do not know how long it will take for all the mercury to leave my body.
Don’t rush out and have your mercury fillings removed before doing research and getting educated about the dangers involved. If you allow a regular dentist to remove the fillings, you could be worse off than leaving the fillings in your mouth. The dentist should believe mercury is dangerous and toxic. An alternative source of air must be provided for the patient to breathe while the old fillings are drilled. Large amounts of water should to be used to cut down on the vapors being released. A dental dam, a piece of latex, should be placed in your mouth to catch the mercury particles as he is drilling it out. This will keep the mercury from falling under your tongue, where you might swallow it. A large high powered vacuum hose is used near the head of the patient to remove vapors while the mercury is being drilled out.
I mentioned above that I became chemically sensitive. Do not consider chemical sensitivities unimportant. One woman, with whom I have become acquainted, who was poisoned with mercury and lead, smelled Lysol at a large university where she was pursuing an advanced degree. She went into convulsions and a coma. She almost died.
Another lady in Virginia had sores in her mouth that would not heal because of the interaction of the stainless steel in her bridgework with the mercury in her fillings. (Stainless steel contains nickel.) The sores developed into cancer on her cheek that had to be surgically removed.
There may be mercury-free dentists in your city, but mercury-free does not mean he will safely remove existing mercury. Mercury free dentists simply do not add any new mercury to your teeth.
I would encourage everyone to thoroughly research the links on this site before having an emergency situation. For example, a crown should not be placed on top of mercury. Dentists usually use crowns made from porcelain, but inferior quality porcelain crowns may also have metals like nickel in them. When the nickel is placed over a mercury filling, it may start a chemical reaction in your mouth. It causes mercury to start leaching out of your fillings faster. Some dentists use gold crowns over mercury. This also causes mercury to start leaking. You do not need different types of dental metals -such as gold, copper, nickel, and mercury, in your mouth. They interact with one another and cause much illness. When the metals are interacting is when you taste metal in your mouth. That is why you need a biological dentist to remove the mercury before you have crowns added. Many persons start becoming mercury poisoned when crowns are first introduced into the mouth.
Also beware of putting metal braces in your child’s mouth if he has mercury fillings! Talk to a biological dentist for advice about safe materials for braces and about the removal of the mercury from the fillings before the placing of braces. Biological dentist Dr. Jerome Mittelman, has written a book called Healthy Teeth for Kids A Preventive Program: Prenatal through the Teens. He offers a simple, effective program to safeguard your child’s teeth and gums-starting before birth and continuing throughout the teen years.
The main symptom from mercury poisoning is the attack on your immune system. root canals also cause horrible infections in the body and pull down your immune system according to Dr. Hal Huggins. Read the book The root canal Cover-up by George Meinig. You can check the web and get lots of information.
If you are seriously ill with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, neurological diseases, or other chronic conditions or allergic reactions in your body, you will need to do a compatibility test to see what materials would be safe to put back in your mouth after the mercury is taken out. Do not take the mercury out and just put anything back in. Dr. Huggins calls this “jumping from the frying pan into the fire.” If you are sick, you need to find an alternative doctor to help you build up your immune system BEFORE you start the dental revision. A good place to start getting educated about this dental issue is to read the book It’s All in Your Head by Dr. Hal Huggins. And if you are fighting periodontal disease you need to know that mercury in your fillings is one reason people have periodontal disease and bad breath.

To be checked for heavy metals in your state, find a doctor belonging to ACAM, the American College for the Advancement in Medicine: http://www.acam.com
Not all ACAM doctors are as good as others. The first ACAM doctor I used failed to test me for heavy metals. But when I went to the second ACAM doctor, he did test me and diagnosed me as mercury poisoned.
Be careful of detox methods. I would be very careful of DMPS as many have had bad side effects. See http://www.dmpsbackfire.com. DMSA can be safe if done in small doses. See my protocol for taking DMSA.

Blacklisted: GMO Supporting Food Companies to Avoid
~ May shock you!
A genetically modified rose by any other name may smell sweet, but it could still have frankenthorns that might independently detach themselves and lop off your finger while you’re smelling it. That’s not unlike a trip to the grocery store these days. There are a lot of ugly surprises in pretty, charmingly-named packages.
It seems like no matter how hard you try to avoid them, GMOs and toxic foods creep into your life.

Fluoride in Milk ~ Poison
Can Adding Fluoride to Milk Help Improve Children’s Dental Health?
~ Dr Mercola … October 8, 2013 …
~ The debate over the dangers of fluoride has been ongoing for more than six decades, despite the fact that study after study has confirmed that fluoride is a dangerous, toxic poison that bio-accumulates in your body while being ineffective at preventing dental decay.
~ Fluoride can also create a calcium deficiency situation by precipitating calcium out of solution. This causes low blood calcium, as well as the buildup of calcium stones and crystals in joints and organs. This could potentially turn out to be a concern with regard to adding fluoride to calcium-rich milk…
~ Worse yet, when you consider the fact that there are 25 studies showing that fluoride reduces IQ in children, the idea of giving fluoridated milk to school children is a shockingly bad idea, even if they don’t also drink fluoridated water. Approximately 100 animal studies have also linked fluoride to brain damage.
NOTE: The UK is thinking of doing this in the Blackpool area. Ten other areas of the UK have already introduced fluoridated milk to its students: St Helens, Knowsley, Wirral, West Cheshire, Manchester, Trafford, Leeds, Sheffield, Barnsley and Doncaster.

~ 4 Pumpkin Seed Snack Ideas … By The Paula Deen Test Kitchen
Here at The Paula Deen Test Kitchen, we carve an obscene amount of pumpkins in October and all through the fall. Don’t get us wrong, though; we love it! We get such a big kick out of carving ghoulish grins and sinister silhouettes. So, what’s the problem, you may ask?
Piles and piles of pumpkin seeds.
Because of our waste-not, want-not attitude, we firmly believe in the following motto: “Let no seed go to waste!”
4 cups pumpkin seeds
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon Paula Deen Silly Salt
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Remove pumpkin seeds from pumpkin and discard any pulp. Rinse seeds under running water to remove any remaining pumpkin. Spread seeds out on paper towels to thoroughly dry.
Toss pumpkin seeds with olive oil and sprinkle with Silly Salt. Spread seeds out in an even layer on the parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes to prevent burning. Allow pumpkin seeds to cool before eating. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
4 cups pumpkin seeds, roasted and salted
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
2 teaspoons chili powder
In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Add seeds and toss to coat in butter. Stir in brown sugar and chili powder. Spread onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let cool completely.
Pumpkin Seed Snack Mix
1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds, roasted and salted
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup dried dates, chopped
1/2 cup unsalted almonds
1/2 cup candy coated chocolate pieces
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until well incorporated. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 cups pumpkin seeds, roasted and salted
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar and honey. Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until mixture is medium amber and a candy thermometer registers 280 degrees, about 6 minutes. Stir in pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin seeds. Cook until mixture reaches 300 degrees, about 2 minutes. Pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let cool completely. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
