What Your Dentist May Not Be Telling You

Mercury toxicity is far more common than most people realize. Do you have “silver” fillings in your mouth?. If you do, you’ve probably been misled by your dentist about their safety. You have toxins in your teeth!

Metal, or Amalgam fillings are commonly referred to as “silver” fillings. What your dentist may not be telling you is that metal, or amalgam fillings are made of 50% mercury. Silver only makes up about 25%.

Mercury is released from these fillings constantly. Some may argue that this amount of mercury is of no consequence to our health. This is not true.

Mercury is one of the most toxic substances on the planet, and, serves no useful purpose in human physiology. In other words, there is no safe level of mercury in our bodies.

When absorbed by our bodies, mercury penetrates our cell membranes, easily passes the blood-brain barrier, intoxicating our brains, and nervous systems.

Symptoms from Mercury Toxicity are Easily Overlooked

Mercury is a potent neurotoxin. Mercury toxicity has been shown to cause kidney damage, and is associated with parkinson’s and alzheimer’s.

We must remember, every organ in our bodies is controlled by nerves coming from the base of the brain. So, when it comes to neurotoxins, any organ, or system can be adversely affected. This is why mercury toxicity is often mistaken for something else.

Compelling Evidence

When stimulated from activity such as chewing or drinking hot beverages, mercury is released from amalgam fillings and ingested into our bodies. Watch the video below for a graphic demonstration of how this happens.[youtube id=”9ylnQ-T7oiA”]

Our bodies are of course capable of detoxifying from mercury. However, detox efficiency varies a great deal from one individual to another. As a result, mercury toxicity may more of a problem for one person than another.

Why burden our bodies with this chore? Remember, metabolic energy is finite. The body must do all that it needs to do with a limited amount of resources.

I would rather free up some metabolic energy to do more repair and rebuilding than spend unnecessary amounts of energy on removing toxins.

Children at Greater Risk

Children, both unborn and after birth are especially vulnerable to mercury toxicity. Umbilical cord blood has been shown to contain much higher levels of mercury than the pregnant mom’s blood. In other words, the unborn baby becomes a toxic waste dump for mom’s mercury.

How did This Happen?

Mercury fillings were first used in the late 1800s. They were then, and continue to be an inexpensive way to repair cavities. We can almost excuse dentist from the 19th century. They didn’t have the scientific evidence that we have today about the extreme toxicity of mercury.

However, it’s unsconscionable that today, the American Dental Association (ADA) is still advocating the use of mercury fillings.

What can we do?

  • Stop paying uninformed dentists to intoxicate you and your family. Find an educated, competent, mercury-free, biological dentist that uses composite materials. A good resource is: The International Association for Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).On their website you can find a biological dentist in your area. In addition, they have a helpful, tooth meridian chart. This chart identifies the acupuncture, or energy meridians associated with each tooth. The condition of a given tooth can affect a particular organ or system.
  • You should never have your mercury fillings removed by an average dentist. I made this mistake about 20 years ago. My health deteriorated dramatically as a result. I had to go through an elaborate mercury detox protocol to recover my health.In order to remove amalgam fillings safely, the dentist must have specialized education, and make an investment in expensive office equipment. Again, the (IAOMT) is a great place to find a safe, biological dentist.
  • The ideal would be to not get any cavities in the first place. We have four children. They’ve never had any fluoride treatments, and none of them have ever had a cavity. This is possible because, in our family, we eat food that supports healthy teeth.
  • The best resource I can recommend to start eating healthier is to read my ebook Top Ten Tips For Healthy Eating
