Finding a mercury-free and mercury-safe dentist such as Health Inspired Dentistry

Some quick facts you should know about Mercury Poisoning

Mercury Detoxification

Mercury is wily. Its vapor sneaks out of amalgam fillings too easily and enters the body. Your body does its best to remove it, but if enough mercury accumulates it can overwhelm the body’s immune system. That means you have to help your body fight this poison­ous substance by participating in a mercury detoxification program—a program specifically designed to support the body’s effort to remove mercury and help heal the damage.

The mercury vapor released from amalgams is highly toxic. Some alarming facts:

  • Any form of stimulation that heats an amalgam filling will stimulate the release of mercury vapor.
  • Amalgam fillings are the single greatest source of mercury exposure.
  • Chronic mercury poisoning can directly and indirectly contribute to and increase the risk and severity of every known disease and health issue.
  • Mercury amalgam fillings continuously release mercury vapor, the most poisonous naturally occurring, non-radioactive substance on earth, into your body.
  • There is no safe or harmless level of mercury. Just one atom of mercury is harmful to the body.

The mercury amalgams emit contributes to over 100 health issues, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Autoimmune diseases, such as, fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
  • Allergies
  • Neurological problems, including depression, memory loss, anxiety and fine tremors
  • Autism, learning and developmental disorders

Many health professionals are recommending people to find a mercury free and mercury safe dentist to have these toxic fillings safely removed and naturally detoxify mercury from the body.

Expecting Moms: Effects of mercury on the fetus, nursing baby and child

Mercury poisoning from amalgam fillings can occur at the moment of conception. Mercury passes through the placenta to the fetus and through breast milk to the nursing baby.

There also seems to be a connection between mercury from amalgam fillings and autism and other learning, mental and developmental disorders.

Amalgam (silver) fillings: why the truth about their toxicity has taken so long to emerge.

It is now proven that mercury vapor is released from amalgam fillings and is highly toxic to humans. Yet nearly 50 percent of all general dentists still use them to fill cavities. But if amalgam fillings are so toxic why did the dental profession decide to use them in the first place, and why on earth are dentists still putting them in people’s teeth?

The American Dental Association (ADA) is still supporting the use of amalgams and controls access to information about the health hazards these fillings pose.

Everyone who has amalgam fillings is being poisoned by mercury

The majority of people don’t realize that amalgam fillings are harmful to their health. Most don’t even know that 50 percent of their amalgam “silver” filling is mercury. Still more people don’t know that amalgams give off toxic mercury vapor and the fraction who do know, don’t realize how much vapor these fillings release when removed without a safe protocol.

The mercury that’s emitted as a vapor from them doesn’t just vanish into the air—80 percent of it enters your body, accumulates over time, and will negatively affect your health.

Mercury has an impact on both your physical health and your mental health

Mercury is classified as a neurotoxin, a toxin that specifically targets nerve cells. As such, it can also cause or contribute to emo­tional and psychological issues, such as depression, anxiety, mood swings and memory loss.

Its physical effects include chronic fatigue, tremors and heart issues.

Many scientific studies prove this, but to actually see how much mercury vapor is released from an amalgam filling by an EPA approved mercury vapor analyzer is staggering. We encourage you to share the video with your colleagues or a dentist you’d like to help educate about this subject.
