SYMPTOMS

Hundreds of symptoms may be due to chronic mercury toxicity. The organ most affected is often the brain, and children suffer the most from many mercury-related disorders. Mercury may be a factor in increasing birth defect rates, autism and other developmental delays, ADHD and other learning disorders, anxieties, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive behavior, panic attacks, neuroses and paresthesias. A medical colleague reports that every case of multiple sclerosis he has seen involves mercury.

The “mat hatters” of the Alice In Wonderland story were real people who worked in the hat industry in the nineteenth century. Many became mentally ill due to rubbing mercury on felt or hides to soften it.
Here is a long list of symptoms and conditions that may be associated with mercury. Note that mercury toxicity is usually found with copper toxicity, and perhaps other metal toxicity. So it is not always possible to separate the cause of the symptoms exactly:
~ Acne – Opportunistic infections cause by general immune suppression.
~ Adrenal insufficiency and burnout.
~ Allergies – Gut wall deterioration via mutated intestinal flora)
~ Anorexia
· ~ Apathy, Feelings of (especially toward property and personal affairs)
· ~ Asthma
· ~ Ataxia
· ~ Autism (contrary to popular belief, there is very strong medical evidence linking autism to mercury)
· ~ Nearsightedness & Farsightedness (by altering interocular fluid eye pressure)
· ~ Autoimmune Diseases (through methionine mimicry and other processes)
· ~ Amylotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
· ~ Ankylosing spondylitis
· ~ Arterial Sclerosis
· ~ Mercury activates an enzyme called phospholipase D (PLD) in cells which line blood vessel walls (endothelial cells). This activation causes the release of phosphatidic acid which damages the cells.(2) These damaged cells then accumulate cholesterol-based plaque leading to arterial sclerosis.
· ~ Kuopio Ischemic Heart Disease Risk Factor (KIHD) study: 2,005 men (ages 42 to 60) without heart disease are divided into four groups based on hair-mercury content and tracked for an average of 12 years. Those in the top 25 percent for hair mercury had a 60% increased risk of death from CVD. Those same men had a 70% increased risk of coronary heart disease.(7)
· ~ Myasthenia Gravis
· ~ Parkinson’s Disease
· ~ Acid Reflux – Caused by reduced digestive fluid production.
· ~ Alzheimer’s Disease (See Beating Alzheimer’s) Quote From Book Review: “He had the mercury removed from his teeth and it did not change things. However,some time later when his gums were x-rayed a tiny sliver of mercury was found in the gum tissue. He had surgery to remove this minute piece of mercury and at the moment of its removal he experienced complete lucidity.”
· ~ Aneurysm
· ~ Anxiety
· ~ Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
· ~ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
· ~ Blood in the Urine
· ~ Blushing
· ~ Borderline Personality Disorder
· ~ “Brain Fog”

· ~ Cancer
· ~ Chronic Fatigue
· ~ Circadian Rhythm, Shifted (inability to sleep on a normal schedule)
· ~ Colitis
· ~ Constipation
· ~ Crohn’s Disease
· ~ Dementia
· ~ Depression

Symptoms may be ill-defined because the exact location and the amount of mercury vary with each individual. Metal toxicity is unlike many infections that have well-defined symptom presentations.

DETECTION

Chronic mercury toxicity does not receive more attention because it is difficult to detect. Simple blood or urine tests are practically useless because the body quickly removes mercury from the blood. It often settles deep in the tissues of the brain, kidneys and liver.

Urine or Feces Challenge Tests. These are common methods for detecting chronic mercury. A high dose of DMPS, a chelating drug that is not safe, is often administered. Then urine is collected for 24-hour hours and analyzed for mercury. The test is almost always “positive”. This may be because mercury is high in many sick people. However, the lab and doctor must be careful not to confuse a “normal” mercury with a mercury produced by a challenge test.
Other problems with this test are that it misses a lot of mercury. The drug does not penetrate the blood-brain barrier very well, so it often misses this key organ where mercury accumulates.

Hair Tissue Biopsy. Any hair level of mercury above about 0.02 mg% is too much in my view. Mercury does not always accumulate in large quantity in the hair. In my experience, however, the hair mineral test provides indicators of ‘hidden mercury’ that are relatively reliable as well. These include:
· An elevated copper above about 2.5 mg%.
· Hidden copper toxicity indicators such as a high hair calcium, a low hair potassium, a low sodium/potassium ratio and a low zinc level. For more on copper, read Copper Toxicity Syndrome.
· Indicators for a hidden zinc deficiency. For more information about zinc, read Zinc on this website.
· Elevated levels of cadmium, arsenic or aluminum often indicate the presence of hidden mercury.

Using these criteria, most people have excess mercury today. This is no surprise. I assume excess mercury is present and contributing to chronic health problems today, especially for those who were vaccinated, those who eat fish at least twice weekly and for those who have or had dental amalgams in their mouths.

Other detection methods. A few practitioners use electrical machines or applied kinesiology techniques (muscle checking) to identify mercury problems. These methods are okay, but are dependent on the skill and clarity of the operator.
