Mercury Poisoning & Heavy Metal Toxicity

I know how to safely and effectively address heavy metal toxicity extremely well. As described here, I had mercury toxicity and completely recovered using a safe and effective approach. Keep in mind, there are many practitioners out there who say they know how to help people recover from metal toxicity. Nearly all of them use unsafe and/or ineffective approaches (e.g., IV chelation, herbs, improper dosing, etc.).



Primary heavy metals responsible for toxicity include mercury, lead, aluminum, antimony, arsenic, and cadmium, as well as excessive levels of essential minerals such as copper and manganese.


Chronic heavy metal toxicity (versus acute occupational exposure, which is more traditionally understood to be a problem) is much more common than widely believed and a significant contributor to chronic illness.  Conservative estimates suggest that up to twenty-five percent of the U.S. population may suffer from heavy metal poisoning to some degree.


Symptoms can include:


- Difficulty thinking / concentrating / remembering

- Fatigue

- Indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, etc.

- Muscle pain

- Anemia, pallor

- Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)

- Poor coordination, dizziness

- Increased susceptibility to infection (fungal, bacterial, viral)

- Loss of sensation (touch, smell, taste, hearing)

- And more...


Since heavy metals disrupt the transport and utilization of essential minerals that are critical to chemical processes throughout the body, the metals often affect several of the body's systems.  The signs are often vague and may be attributed incorrectly to other conditions, such as:


- Allergies, asthma

- Autism, ADD/ADHD, OCD

- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia

- Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, ALS

- Anxiety, depression, eating disorders, schizophrenia

- Autoimmune diseases - rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis

- Digestive disorders - Crohn's, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Heart disease

- Hormonal imbalances - thyroid, adrenal, sex hormones





Toxicity results from environmental exposures to heavy metals.  Potential sources of exposure are numerous, including:


- Dental amalgams

- Seafood

- Drinking water

- Vaccines

- Old paint

- Industrial emissions - e.g., coal and cement plants

- Cigarettes

- Personal care products - e.g., deodorants

- Cosmetics

- Fire retardants - e.g., children's clothing, bedding

- Etc.



My Treatment Approach


- Identify and safely eliminate potential sources of heavy metal exposure in the individual's environment.


- Properly test for heavy metals and disordered mineral transport.


- Supplement to support the body's natural metal detoxification pathways and to restore normal levels of essential nutrients, e.g:

            - Vitamins

            - Minerals

            - Essential fatty acids

            - Herbals

            - Enzymes

            - Probiotics


- Safely reduce existing heavy metal levels in the body using proper oral chelation.


- Reduce/avoid foods that the body may not be capable of digesting properly and/or may be contributing to poor cognitive and immune function.


- Address existing chronic infections (bacterial, viral, fungal).


- Support hormone balance (adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones).
