Re: Mercury toxicity and amalgam fillings
I'm hoping to get my fillings replaced. Like you, money is an issue for me, and I'm having to look for a dentist I am happy with.
I'm not bothering with any specific mercury tests. I've heard that the only reliable ones are the DMPS, and that they can put the body through some trauma. Hair tests, I've heard, aren't totally reliable because mercury isn't abundantly in the hair, but is in our organs and brain. It's attracted to neurons.
I don't know whether some of my health problems will improve, I can only hope!
My advice is to read as much as you can about this, especially taking note of what those who have successfully got better have to say. I've heard that slow detox is best, which is what I'm going to do, but everyone is different.
PS Make sure you get a dentist who uses precautions in removing the fillings i.e. gives oxygen supply, air filter, dam, etc as having them removed releases a lot of mercury vapour, and you don't want to breathe any more in than is necessary.
