How to get mercury fillings removed
without exposing yourself to toxic mercury vapor
By Mike Adams
Here's a great idea: Let's take one of the most toxic elements on
the periodic table and put it in people's mouths. That's exactly
what dentists have been doing in the United States for decades, as
they've been filling dental cavities with none other than mercury.
Of course, they call them "silver" fillings, but they're really a
combination of silver and mercury, which is, again, one of the most
toxic substances on the periodic table of elements.
I call mercury fillings part of the "dark ages" of modern dentistry.
Today, more and more dentists are realizing, "Hey, maybe this highly
toxic metal doesn't belong in the human body." At the same time,
dental clients are increasingly realizing they need to get that
mercury removed, because as you chew and breathe, some of that
mercury is being ingested by your digestive tract or inhaled into
your lungs. Little by little, those mercury fillings disappear out
of your teeth. Where do they go? Right into your body.
So people want to get those mercury fillings removed. There have
been some amazing testimonials to the kind of health recoveries
people have experienced once they remove mercury from their mouths.
Some people have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, for example, and
then had their symptoms completely vanish within 30 days of removing
all the mercury in their mouth. Mercury is also known to promote
Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other nervous system disorders.
However, when it comes to removing mercury, too often we're still in
the dark ages of modern dentistry, because a lot of dentists don't
know how to properly remove mercury from your mouth.
In this article, I'm going to describe how to get mercury removal
done right. If you're a dentist reading this, make a note: this is
the new standard of mercury removal. And if you're not offering this
service to your clients, you should consider adopting it, because
people will be increasingly demanding this kind of service down the
As a dental customer, the first thing you want to do is find a
dentist who will actually agree to remove the mercury from your
mouth. Some dentists will look at you with a degree of scorn and
say, "Oh, that's hogwash. Mercury is great for you. See, I chew on
mercury every single day and I'm fine." So, you've got to find a
dentist who's willing to take the mercury out of your mouth. The
best thing to do is visit a natural health-oriented dentist if you
can find one in your area. I'm fortunate enough to be working with
one of the most experienced and well-known natural health dentists
in the country. His name is Dr. Steven Swidler, at Medicine Wheel
Dental, and let me tell you how he removes mercury from your mouth.
I went in to see Dr. Swidler and told him I had already had all of
the mercury removed from my mouth. How did I know that? Because my
previous dentist, who I had convinced to remove the mercury, told me
he had completed the job. Well, as it turned out, Dr. Swidler looked
at my mouth and found there was still quite a bit of mercury in
there. Go figure. So, don't assume just because a conventional
dentist told you the mercury's gone, that it actually IS gone. You
might want to get a second opinion, because I've been walking around
with mercury in my mouth for a couple of years, thinking it was
So Dr. Swidler said, "Let's take it out," and on the next visit he
proceeded to do so. First he gave me 3,000 mg of vitamin C. This is
to boost the antioxidants in your system and help nutritionally
protect you from the mercury. Knowing something about chlorella and
superfoods, I also took chlorella before that appointment, because
chlorella binds with heavy metals and prevents them from being
absorbed by your system.
The next thing he did was put oxygen on my nose only, so I could
breathe through my nose and get fresh oxygen. Why is this important?
Because, when dentists start drilling out the mercury, they're
creating mercury vapor, or airborne mercury particles, and you
certainly don't want to be inhaling those into the delicate tissues
of your lungs. So, you need to get protection by breathing oxygen.
Next, I saw Dr. Swidler and his assistant putting on what appeared
to be gas masks. They were actually facemasks that filter out
volatile organic compounds and particulate matter. This was to
protect them from the mercury. Finally, they stuffed what I’m sure
was enough cotton in my mouth to weave an entire pair of jeans. They
used constant suction and washing to get the mercury out of my mouth
as they were drilling it out. After all of this was done, they had
me rinse my mouth out without swallowing, making sure I got any
extra mercury out of the way.
After this, I went home and followed it up with a couple of capsules
of activated charcoal, because activated charcoal also absorbs heavy
metals. So, between my own nutritional strategies and using
chlorella and activated charcoal, and the care of my dentist, I was
able to get this mercury out of my mouth in the safest way possible.
It was replaced with a resin compound that contains no mercury
whatsoever. This is the proper way to get mercury removed from your
mouth, and if your dentist isn't using a similar technique, then he
or she is unnecessarily exposing you to mercury vapor or particles,
just as you think you're getting the stuff removed from your mouth.
If you are interested in pursuing mercury removal -- by the way, I
strongly recommend you get all the mercury taken out of your mouth
as quickly as possible for a variety of health reasons -- make sure
you get it done right so you don't expose yourself to mercury vapor
or particles during the removal process, or else the removal can be
far more toxic than just leaving it in place. However, a good
removal will, of course, get this heavy metal out of your body in
the safest way possible, without exposing you to dangerous vapor.
As a follow up to this, it's interesting to note there are still
many dentists in this country who are putting mercury into people's
mouths. I find that absolutely appalling. It's something that should
be relegated to the dark ages of modern dentistry. Then again,
dentists are also many of the same people who are still promoting
the ingestion of a highly toxic chemical called fluorosilicic acid,
which is sourced from the waste products of smoke stacks and
industrial incinerators. This fluorosilicic acid is mislabeled
"fluoride" and then dripped into the water supply based on the
advice of half-crazed dentists whose mouths are apparently filled
with lots of mercury, because they think they alone have the right
to determine whether an entire population should be medicated with a
highly toxic substance like fluorosilicic acid.
I've been to meetings where dentists were up-in-arms insisting the
entire population, no matter what level of fluoride they might be
consuming elsewhere, needed to be medicated with this, and should
have no choice whatsoever in the matter. That is, in fact, the
current position of the American Dental Association -- once again,
another "health" association that seems to have completely lost its
Even if they say fluoride is good for your teeth, it’s not the same
stuff dripping into the water supply. Naturally-occurring fluoride
is not the stuff obtained by scraping the chemicals off the inside
of industrial smoke stacks. That's where they're getting
fluorosilicic acid, which is what most municipalities are actually
dripping into their water supply. Seriously, if you take a look at
modern dentistry, it's a house of horrors. Some of the most ignorant
and unscientific procedures of all are practiced in dentistry. A lot
of it is just complete quackery, and if you don't visit a
naturopathic dentist or a natural health oriented dentist, you are
undoubtedly subjecting yourself to some very unhealthy side effects
simply from being a patient of modern dentistry.
