Am on RAW FOOD Diet and getting mercury/amalgam fillings removed

I am healing my body back to health.
Just read the post by someone in Aug. of last year how she cured her Lupus with Raw food and detoxing.  I believe any disease is caused by the body being TOXIC...many many toxins in our world today first starting with the food we eat 3-4-5 times a day!  Water..air...mercury/amalgam fillings.

Was wondering if anyone else is eating raw organic food and detoxing ( colonics, changing food, fillings removed, coffee enemas)

Detoxing is scary for me since I don't have a large colon.  However, I just read Lupus-Alternative Therapies that work and am intrigued by the mercury/amalgam filling removal.  I am considering that.  I have already removed the majority of processed foods from my diet and am going to start on the organic eating.  I am trying to reduce red meat and increase vegetables and legumes.  Some of the supplements in the book sound promising too.  Don't you just wish the medical profession would work on this stuff too!

You are correct in your way of thinking.  All this neurological **** we are seeing today is the results of toxins and they are everywhere.  The detox program I followed was by Tom McQuire, DDS.  It worked good for me.  As far as diet I started with the Swank diet but think the Paleo Diet has shown more success in threating neurological diseases.  As far as the dental thing I had 10 root canals and an assortment of fillings.  My gums were bleeding and that was clearly a problem in my case.  Everyone must decide this issue for theirself because this is a major decision.  I have some information concerning this issue that I will post.  The detoxification and eating health are very important for good health.  I am sure you realize that when you have these amalgams in your mouth the mercury has already traveled in your body and now you have to detoxify to get it out.  I have done everything you talk about plus more.  Juicing, fasting, and adjusting the PH has been part of my program for good health.  If you have any questions concerning any of this stuff let me know.

What results did you get?

The results I have gotten were good.  Good health has returned to me.  I think it is important if you decide to get the dental work done is to have it done with a properly trained mercury free dentist.  There is a certain procedure that should be followed or it could make you sick.  Hal Huggins has a book "Solving the MS Mystery".  I would recommend reading the book before having any of the dental procedures done.  It will explain how the procedure should be done to keep you from getting sick.

I am having them done one at a time..the "safe" way..he is a trained dentist in this area and we wait and detox for four weeks and do the next tooth...I have 3 left to replace.

The thing that convinced me was a movie called The Beautiful Truth where three dentists show and measure the mercury vapor.  It made me cry.  How could they have put this poison in me when I was only 10?  I just hate it.

The other part is Organic Raw food..a dvd called FOOD MATTERS showed me WHY I need to be eating raw food...it is naturally detoxing because if you're eating raw you're not eating processed..that's a detox right there...as I began the food cravings went away quickly and I just couldn't eat things I KNEW were bad for me...I'm not 100% raw but that's my goal.  ALSO a new movie due out on DVD in Nov. of this year is Food Inc.  you can go to YouTube and watch parts of it right now.  It's amazing what the American people have had to put up with and our health is suffering because of it.

Hal Huggins is great.

Changing your diet, I am convinced is the FIRST step to healing the body and one you don't need a doctor for. ;-)

When I realized that my sickness was due to the amalgams it made me very angry.  I can't say that I wasn't aware of the problem because back in the 80's it came out on 60mins.  When I ask my dentist about this he thinks it is all nonsense.  Since I was not having a problem with my health at that time I chose to ignor it.  Then all of a sudden my body gets more mercury than it can handle and I find out what being sick really means.  The doctors and dentist have been trained to tell you this mercury in your mouth is OK.  Things are changing now and eventually everyone will know what they have done to us.  Probably make the lawyers happy but money cannot replace what these people have taken from us.  If you believe in a God someday they will have to answer for what they have done to humanity.  It is all about the money with them and I can't believe they do not know exactly what is going on.  

Your thoughts on diet are the same as mine.  Eating raw foods is what we were designed to eat.  Getting these nutrients allows the body to heal itself.  Another book which explains this is "The Makers DIet" which was written by a person who cured himself of Crohns disease through his diet.  The Paleo Diet which is basicly eating fruits and vegetables has shown good results in treating all these neurological diseases but many would rather go to the doctor and get a pill so they can continue doing what they have been doing.  I am reminded of the saying if you keep doing what you always did you will keep getting what you always got.  Just take a few Tylenol for the pain and you will be OK until the Tylenol distroys your liver.  You might want to take a look at sprouting.  Sprouts are loaded with the natural enzymes your body needs.  I have been using sprouts on my salads.  You might want to look at juicing which gives your body more of the vitamins and minerals than you can get with just eating the friuts and vegetables.  It seperates the vitamins and minerals from the fiber and allows your body to absorp more of the nutrients in a more concentrated form.  I do juicing along with fasting two days a week.  It allows my digestive system to relax because it doesn't have to spend any energy digesting the food and can concentrate on other things like detoxification and healing the body.  Hippocrates the father of western medicine declared fasting as the greatest remedy and the physician from within.  Fasting allows the body to heal itself and healing must come from within.  The doctors can't heal us of these neurological problems.  All they will do is give us drugs and these drugs are posion and your body will have to get rid of them.  Giving your body more posion is not the road to good health.  Glad you have found what works for you.

I do juice..apple and carrot in my juicer.
I also have a Vita Mix..and do my green drinks in there.
I think I am ready in incorporate a day of fasting.
I am getting ready to go on vacation for 10 days and I am going to design a routine that works for me while the kids are in school
I have 5 kids..23, 21, 19 ( all in college)
17 he's a senior in highschool
12 he's a 7th grader this year.
I'm also going back to the gym..but have been a "walker" for the last few years.
I have begun to feel better...like I can tell deep down in my body that something is shifting and changing.
I don't think I would be where I am at today if I hadn't found the raw food community and these green drinks I make.

You and I are on the same page...thanks for the connection..I look forward to more.

an update...
after having the first filling replaced..I have no more sinus issues on that side..my left side..I've had sinus issues most of my life.

ALSO a very interesting thing..i can now get a Q-tip in my left ear..have not been able to do that in over 20 years.  It was just too tight..maybe now I'm thinking it was swollen due to the mercury on that side...

This is the one filling that was leaking as well..discovered through muscle testing/kinesiology.

Just wanted to give that update...I'm feeling great today.

Good morning:

I'm a cuban young girl of 26 years old, caucasian type that is looking
for a team or a good diagnostician online, and as I see you are social
workers maybe you can help me. I'm very ill but no one knows what's
happening to me. I've seen so many doctors in this week and the matter
is becoming worst by the hour. I feel like dying, please gime a way to
contact some doctor. I beg you. I'm alone in Kiev and noone is helping
me, because they don't know.

The symptoms:

My syntoms started few months ago, but they were random, I felt dry
throat and mouth and I needed to force a lot of water that gave me the
sensation of acid in the digestive tract and almost didn't take away the
thirst or the dryines, so I usually took some tea or instant coffe with
me and after that I felt my digestive tract complete in burn, and
couldn't swallow o create saliva, making me some times woke up looking
for air because the drynes of the larynx, it was stuck the movement.
Then i decided t change my diet, eating more fruits and vegetables and
desapairing meat and dairies, milk or coffe. In this month trial for
being vegan I lost appetite and didn't have cravings, I was eeating less
and my irritation skin problems and infeccion for candialiasis in mouth
and vagina went to a less populated state. It also give me a dry skin
eliminating my very active adult acné. and my giardiasis eres also less
problematic. I was diagnosed with cronic giardiasis at age of 16.

After a change of diet because all this the problem got worst. The water
didn't dry me and I was drinking water and eating fruits for the single
purpose of creating saliva. I thought that maybe boiling the water
created a poisoning reaction, because I was using iron pots with white
keramics but scratched in several parts, and the water turned brownish
when boiled. Then I stoped drinking tea with boiled water, I puted to
the sun to soak. Last week I ate fruits having a poisning sensation in
blood, skin and digestive tract, felt like I had fire everywhere,
literally with uncontrolable shaking for a sensation as cold. And of
course my sleeping problmes. The night that I became sick, 7 days ago I
ate little pieces of  out of season watermelon, banana and a white fruit
form Ukraine, like pear kind of taste and feeling. When I ate that I
felt like was stuck in my throat and didn't move, I couldn't salivate in
my left side where the food felt stucked and didn't move until I started
tio force saliva more and more, and making palpitations and my heart
work harder for making this move. I went t the next day to the otorrino
naringolgist to take off the food, and she said that there was nothing
there, and prescribe me medicine for the nerves. Next day I felt worst,
because I have the sensation of having the food moving and getting stuck
very slowly and have a dry throat and was taking constant water to
salivate the tract. I also feel like the yeast or candiliasis infection
went rampage on mouth, throat and esophagus, I made an endoscopy and
resulted clear. thay say the check for infection or bacteria and nothing
resulted, again medicine for nerves that I ve been taking and shange
nothing. The prblem is that I can't sleep since a week ago, I'm anxious,
can't eat anything and I'm drinking tons of water, als my feel doesn't
smell, my pee is almost white. I did poop onces two days ago and was
nromal color and sticknes, it didn't make any problems to come, I
usually have diarreah and in the vegan diet I had diarreah also, the
food went out almst unprocessed. The last days since the problem with
the feelibg of stuckness started more nd more organs felt like being on
pressure, I feel the blood very intense in different parts. The
esophagus, the middle left part in my poin of view, the right for the
person watching me. The parte where I felt the first course of stickness
is also sensible. I had hurtburn from candialiasis infection and I
started on antibiotics: amoxicillin and  nystatine on suspention for
only two days, and my entire body feel very dry, including my vagina,
anus and between legs. the problem is that I don't have fever or any
sign of infection, not the normal trhoat irritation or plaques. I just
can't create saliva and felt like moniliasis on my digestive tract
making me feel with hurtburnt. I can't sleep, because every time  I try
the entire digest problem and acidic poisoning get worst, stping to have
countrol of my drinking water makes me very dry and poisoning feeling
and also lijke I ate fire, no creation of saliva at this point. I
haven''t sleep in one week now, and I'm feeling nervous and lost focus.
My skin if  yellow and I've been loosing hair for years since I came to
Ukraine to live with my cuban boyfrined that have the same symptoms of
yeast or candialiasis infection but doens;t feel anything. I feel like
my heart is working to much, I tried to eat some pourrisj of
vegetables,and I added some milk, I could eat without apparent problem.
I don't feel any paint, I'm feeling like I'm fool of dirt in the ears,
because I'm not creating grease. Last night I was having a reiki sation
and I has a very dry mouth and throat and not saliva making the movement
very deifficult. I tried to take a benadrilin but it got stuck in the
tongue and I decided not ot take it. I'm afraid that if a I fall sleep I
will stop breathing or controllling my body berserked state. I drank
tons of normal water, mineral water, saltmineral water, with gas, and I
don't get saliva back in the walls.

Please, I feel like dying, I've been under a lot of stress and looking
waht do I have and what could I do for treatment.

HElps please. i also experimented several times overheating like tirring away
sensation in several parts of my body several times between the jaws and the mouth at the edge of the face.
My body is overeacting to heat, which is abnormal in me. and now I'm having kind of defness in both ears feeling very stuck the aerea ingeneral.
I'm very dry and I use to be very grease type of person and full of hedors in muth, ears body, not feet.

Thanks for taking your time and please help me.

I can't tell you what you have but the fact that your  digestive system is a problem suggest you should be taking some kind of probotics.  When the doctors give us things like antibiotices along with killing the bad bacteria it also can kill the good bacteria we need for digestion.  These probotics occur in things like yogard, kimshi and things that ferment.  They have a product Kombucha tea which is suppose to be good at replacing these bacteria.  If you and your boyfriend have similar sympthoms might want to look at the enviroment.  There are toxins everywhere today and we have to try and eliminate as much of them as we can.  When I was really sick I used a detoxification program to make myself better.  You can google detoxification on line and there are many out there.  The supplements I think most important that I will continue to take are vitamins C (3 grams- 1gram with each meal), 2500mg garlic supplement, multivitamin, Omega 3, and flaxseed.  These are pretty common supplement and not too expensive.  I have a zeolite supplement I also take but it is more expensive and has to be bought online.  The key for me in nutrition is to get as many of these vitamins and nutrients as I can and I do this with juicing.  It makes these nutrients in a more concentrated form so your body can absorp them.  I also take a fiber supplement since you should make sure you get adqueate fiber.  If you want to check the health of your body you can get some PH paper.  You can buy it online and it is not too expensive.  It is important to keep body PH around 7.0 which is a healthy level.  Goolgle Ph on line and get this information.  Hope you can find something which works for you.

Yes, I started a new diet and taking different pills. The other one I took before created imbalance in my nervous system. I usually take omega 3 and eat an entire garlic in meal, that's why is so weird that I started a very sane diet and became so sick, but now I'm feeling a little better, at least I slept yesterday night, the entire night. Well, thanks very much I will look for detox processes.

Avatar universal
Be sure and check out probotics since you seem to have a problem with your digestive tract and probotics are need to correct this.  Good Luck.
Avatar universal
Thank you very much for your help, I will look for probotics. Thank you very much everyone. I started to feel better but sometimes I have the same sensation, almost always when I'm sleeping.

second tooth replacement appointment set for Aug. 31st.
That will be two down and two to go.
Was wondering what a detox program looks like and if anyone here is on one for mercury poisoning?  I am on a bio active mercury detox thing and Vit. C anything else?
Avatar universal
I do a detox program it was by Tom McGuires, DDS.  If you are interested Google his name he has a web site.  He has a book that explains this and tells you what you should be taking.  He has a list of about 34 different things to be taken and he explains how to check for your bodies tolerance of these things.  Items listed are vitamin C, Garlic, Lipoic Acid, Bioflavoniods, Coenzyme Q, Lecthin, Magnesium, Milk Thistle, MSM, Multi Vitamin, Multi Minerals, NAC, Omega-3, Selenium, Natural Cellular Defense, Evening Primrose, Grape Extract, Amino Acid Complex, Chlorella, Glutathione, Probotics, Psyllium, Whey Protein, Cilantro, DHEA, DHA, Ginko Biloba, PC, ALC, NADH, PS, Sam e.  He also talks about the use of DMSA which is a Pharmacutical Chealator.  Program has worked well for me.

Had the second mercury/amalgam filling replaced today.  Two down and two to go.
I have not had sinus issues on the left side of my nose since the first mercury filling was replaced.  I am hoping for the same results on the right side as well.

The more I know the more I KNOW this is the right decision for me.

Mercury vapor is contributing to SO many issues in the body.  I have read many personal stories of people who no longer have thyroid disease or autoimmune issues after having their mercury/amalgam fillings out.  I do hope this is one of my issues but i think I have other things going on as well.  I DO NOT put much credence in GENETICS..
I have read too may studies where the person "over-rides' the genetic factor.  I believe this is an over used excuse that doctors use first and then patients follow right along.  Before I get slammed for my opinion, I know there are people who feel the exact opposite as me and that's ok.  We all have to develop our own plan of action from what we believe and what we learn.

I'm happy to have this day almost over with.  It is my first day 100% raw ( in about 3 months).  Going for 6 months raw ( except I eat a hard boied egg every so often, I raise the chickend and the eggs are organic and I LOVE them lol).

Eat well, live well, be well.

6 months 90% raw.
Follow me as i post every day about what's happening and what changes I see in my health in 6 months.

My heart goes out to you, my body is a mes to so i compeletly understand your frustration!

I had Fibromyalgia for 10 years and received a prayer healing and was instantly cured.  Now im sick with something else that th doctors cant figure out yet.  BUT  when i was searchng for Fibromyalgia help I came upon this ladys website.  I am pasting her link to her research on Yeast, but look all over her mani stie too and see if anyhing there helps you.  She was very sweet on emailing back to me to answer my questions.  That was over 10 years ago, and I have no idea how old she is now or even if she keeps up with her website...but here is the link and I hope it helps!!!

have you found that yeast has been one of your issues?  yeast can and usually is at the ROOT of a lot of things.  Comes from eating the "SAD" ( standard american diet)  If you don't eat the healing foods your body just continually goes down hill.

How are you doing today?
Avatar universal
I pretty believe the same, that yeast has a lot to do with my health problems, because I always had tinnutis, and when I went to the doctors to see the reason, guess what? They didn't know and then they wanted to remove some organ, butchers. Acces to inet has been the best tool to heal because at least now I can imagine the source of my problems without taking away parts of my body. The tinnutis comes and go, but my right ear is the worst, I heard a strong iiiiiiiii, that only gets better a few minutes after doing EFT. I will continue doing it anyway, because it makes changes in the blood stream, so I guess physically is making improvements.

Keep doing what you know to do.  Sometimes it takes longer with some people.
I just had a talk with a dear friend who has been fighting LUPUS for 10 years now..well she said goodbye to her LUPUS doctor because the last 4 tests for LUPUS have come back NEGATIVE.  She is now LUPUS FREE..full reversal and healed. :-)  This kind of news just makes me so excited about my own possibilities.

Keep on keeping on.

I am calling my Naturopath tomorrow to get my thyroid meds reduced.
Blood work came back...
TSH is .267 ( reference range .450-4.5)
I FEEL better at 2.5...
I believe the replacment of the top two mercury fillings has something to do with this.
I have read many stories of women who have had their replacements, only to end up in the ER because once the mercury is out the thyroid comes back "on-line" and begins working.  They are still on thyroid meds so they swing quickly over to HYPER thyroid and the symptoms are so severe they go to the ER, not understanding what is happening. Once the doctors do bloodwork they see that the women are no longer needing their thyroid medications.

SO I want to be ahead of the game..and with a TSH this low I want to decrease medication now, slowly, as I replace the other two lower ones ( 4 weeks apart) I hope that i am avoiding a trip to the ER in the weeks to come.

Anyone else have this happen? anyone else getting their mercury fillings replaced?
What have your results been?  Are you supporting the hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenals with Standard Process supplements?
