Today on Holistic Dentistry, I reveal the danger of mercury fillings and how they can cause a slew of health and cognitive issues. There is no amount of mercury that is safe for the human body. There are over two-hundred known disorders associated with mercury toxicity. We have alternatives to this toxic metal, and yet over sixty-million Americans are suffering from mercury toxicity from these fillings.
Once this metal is in your mouth it quickly absorbs into your bloodstream. Symptoms can take years to surface, mercury has a half-life of a couple of decades. Symptoms can vary from mood swings to kidney problems because once the toxins are in your blood they travel throughout your body. Detoxification and removal are necessary if you have been exposed to toxic levels of mercury.
If you have an amalgam filling it is important to find a dentist who is qualified to safely remove mercury, because the removal process vaporizes the metal which can cause higher levels of toxicity to you and your dentist. I share my own experience of having my fillings removed incorrectly and the symptoms that I experienced because of the highly toxic vapor. Join me to discover the reality of mercury toxicity and how you can avoid this at your next dental visit.
