We talked about the use of the neurotoxin fluoride here, but the bigger danger at the dental office is actually metal amalgam fillings, which are approximately 50% mercury, one of the most toxic elements known to man.
The post raised some questions about the proper way to deal with these type of fillings if you do have them, and we strive to present solutions to any problems we note.
1.) First and foremost, you have to make sure you are healthy enough to have the fillings either A) removed or B) replaced.
It is important to work with a genuine healthcare provider who has the knowledge and experience to help you become healthy enough to deal with the detox side effects of a safe removal of mercury fillings--this is not usually a "traditional" family MD. Most western medicine doctors have very limited knowledge on the topic of mercury poisoning or safe removal procedures.
In many cases, the biggest factor you can do to increase your health prior to removal/replacement is a change in diet and addition of supplements that support the area of the body that mercury affects the most. We will be talking more about these dietary changes and supplements in an upcoming post, but you definitely want to be taking nascent iodine asap.
Iodine is a required nutrient that you are already supposed to be consuming every single day for a whole bunch of reasons. It supports metabolism and proper hormone function, and it also detoxes heavy metals like mercury! Learn more about nascent iodine here.
2.) Next step is to find a dentist that does safe removal of amalgam fillings.
Or, you can check the IAOMT database of dentists: https://iaomt.org/safe-removal-amalgam-fillings/
It is not a complete list--there are more dentists who practice SMART but are not listed, but it is frequently updated.
Please keep in mind when looking for a dentist that if cost is an issue, thenit may better suit your needs to call many dentists in many different states or even countries. Some dentists offer the same repairs at a fraction of the price of another dentist. There are instances where a plane ticket to another location saves you a lot more money than trying to have the work done locally.
3.) Develop a plan of action with your dentist. If fillings will be replaced, talk about what materials will be used.
In some cases you may even want to have some testing done beforehand to find out if you are sensitive to any other materials the dentist will use. If your dentist does this testing, then they can give you the details about which lab they use and the cost for the testing. If you can afford it, the testing is a good idea so you know for your own benefit if there are any other chemicals or materials you might have an adverse reaction too, as it would be a waste of money to have your amalgam fillings replaced with something else that could still be causing health issues.
7.) Last but definitely not least make sure the recommended steps of SMART (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) are actually being followed in the office!
The protocol can be found at their website:
In summary, if you want those 50% mercury amalgam fillings out of your head:
- Get healthy.
- Find a dentist with SMART experience removing mercury.
- Develop a plan of action with your dentist, and find out what materials will be used.
- Work with a genuine healthcare provider to protect your body during the removal & detox.
- Support the body's detox pathways.
- Work by quadrant.
- Make sure the office does observe the SMART protocol!
We hope this will inspire you to do additional research and work towards the best possible health for yourself!
