Dealing with Amalgam
Dental amalgam is a mixed metal alloy: 50% mercury, 30% silver, 20% copper, tin and zinc.
During routine amalgam fillings removal, the equilibrium between the levels of mercury (Hg) in the mouth, in the blood and in various other body tissues changes. As amalgam fillings are removed from the mouth, Hg ions come out of body tissues to reestablish the equilibrium. This is when chelators and other supplements are very important. Chelators and other suplements help detoxify your body by binding to heavy metals and eliminating them from your tissues.
Dr. Balica recommends some kind of testing for mercury levels in your body or tissues. Mercury fillings are chemically reactive in the mouth. As you know, mercury leaks from fillings by ionic exchanges in the mouth, mostly during chewing. Mercury from environmental and food sources combines with the leaking Hg from your fillings and has a cumulative toxic effect on your body.
A fecal test from Doctors Data, Inc. is most reliable, easy to use at home and comes with literature to interpret the results. People with severe allergies and immune system problems, or with diagnosed mercury/heavy metal toxicity, should be under treatment of a physician/toxicologist. A physician will use IV (intavenous) or oral chelators which are FDA approved metal-binding drugs.
CHELATION IS A CLEANSING METHOD WHICH REMOVES TOXIC METALS AND ALLOWS CELL WALLS TO HEAL, IMPROVES METABOLISM AND BLOOD FLOW, REMOVES FREE RADICALS THEREBY REDUCING INTERNAL INFLAMMATION AND ATHEROSCLEROSIS, AND DETOXIFIES YOUR BODY.
