Is There Danger Hiding
Inside Your Teeth?
by Steven R. Johnson
“Rinse and spit!” These commands probably conjure up images of a
room with a big motorized chair and shiny metal instruments. The dentist
says, “I’m sorry, but you have a cavity.” What comes next? The drill, of
course. And sure to follow is a metal substance used to fill the hole. This
metal will protect the tender tissues near the roots of the teeth as well as fight
Since the 1500’s, mercury has been considered a poison. It is the second
most toxic substance on earth, even more toxic than arsenic2. A mass of
mercury is not dangerous by itself, but bacteria in our body have a tendency
to transform mercury into methyl mercury, which is toxic. American,
Danish, Swedish and German studies have shown that there is a relationship
between the amount of mercury in the blood, the brain and the kidneys, and
the number of fillings3. Other studies have shown that mercury in urine and
fecal samples is also linked to the number of amalgam fillings.
There are several signals to help you know if you are suffering from
chronic mercury poisoning. Some of these symptoms are: severe allergic
reactions, anger, anxiety, bad breath, confusion, depression, diarrhea,
digestive problems, dizziness, fatigue, fever, gingivitis, hair loss, headaches,
inability to concentrate, insecurity, insomnia, loose teeth, menstrual
disturbances, metallic taste in the mouth, miscarriage, nausea, nervousness,
numbness, pain, seizures, sore tongue, tingling sensation, tremors, urinary
difficulties, uticaria and weakness. Children may experience behavioral
changes, depression, irritability and hyperactivity.
If you feel that you may be suffering from mercury toxicity, you can have
a hair analysis done. Blood and urine tests are not always accurate
indications of what is accumulating in the cells. They can only tell what is
going to and coming from the cells. Hair, on the other hand, is a semipermanent
record of mineral concentrations. Ask your health practitioner
for a hair analysis. Muscle testing can also determine mercury incompatibility.
In some cases, removal of the amalgam is the best treatment. It is thought
that fillings should be replaced every 7-10 years. Scandinavian lab tests
show that removal of mercury fillings reduced the amount of lesions in themouth. Interestingly enough, the amalgam was found to be the cause of the
lesions. Doctors have seen improvements in patients with chronic fatigue
syndrome, vulnerability to infection, allergies and thyroid dysfunction after
the removal of fillings.
Removing fillings is often not enough because the mercury that has
gathered in the nerves and in the brain still needs to be expelled. To
eliminate mercury a detoxification program should be followed.
There are several supplements that can be used to offset the effects of
mercury toxicity. One is bee pollen. Bee pollen contains all the nutrients
necessary for human life. Among these, it contains Vitamins A, B, C and
E, calcium, magnesium, selenium, nucleic acids, lecithin and cysteine. Bee
pollen has demonstrated protection from mercury.
The following regimen may be useful in removing mercury and other
Each of these supplements should be taken three times daily for six weeks.
Very few of the 180 million Americans with silver fillings will have strong reactions to them; however, if you are suffering from unexplained symptoms that match those described above, please consult with a qualified health practitioner.
