There was a recent study reported that is attempting to link PTSD in war situations to genetics. Of course anything is possible, but I had to think this fringes on the ridiculous. War is a horrifying experience on so many levels that genetics seems to be the last of the possibilities.
A completely overlooked area of possibility is the influence of lead from weapon use. Lead is known to cause reactions that are very similar to PTSD with or without the experience of war. In fact, a known side effect of lead contamination is rage which can manifest in many ways that resemble PTSD.
If you consider that the military still uses mercury in dentistry, still feeds soldiers food contaminated with GMO poisons and pesticides and gives little support in the area of mental health, it seems reasonable that the combination of these elements would offer symptoms that strongly mimic what is known as PTSD.
An interesting and practical study would be to test soldiers with PTSD for mercury and lead levels. It seems a very basic first step.
Some basic Emeramed information as taken from their website in regard to access of NBMI during FDA trials. If you know the product as OSR or Irminix, it is the same product.
No approval by the regulatory authority needed for the physician to order the drug:
There are a number of things
you can do on your own to
assist your body in
removing heavy metals.
After 30 years of trial and error, I would say this is a decent overview of what I might tell a friend to do if they were metals poisoned. Today there are more options and a lot more awareness of the problem even though still we are starved for information about metals poisoning and what to expect.
If starting out today, I would use Emeramed’s NBMI from the beginning. That would have saved me from years of pain, IV therapy and side effects. At the moment of this publication, NBMI is not widely available and is still within FDA trials.

Metals Poisoned and Not Sure Where to Start?
There is no on-size-fits all when it comes to knowing exactly how to best detox heavy metals. There are formal protocols, natural remedies, IV therapies and drugs. Ultimately what you choose is personal and should be decided from your own research. There are few true experts in the field.
The toxicity of your body is not a precise match to anyone else. That means symptoms and results vary. You can’t expect to have all of the symptoms reported and you can expect to find different ones.
I suggest you read all you can and incorporate that which feels right to you. Detoxing metals can be harsh, so the rule is slow and easy, while the urge to go fast is huge.
To be sure, your body is overwhelmed when it is poisoned. The body will attempt to keep your bloodstream clear by detoxing as fast as possible. When that becomes too difficult or there is too much toxicity, the body stores it in fat, tissue, organs and bones to keep you safe. That storage is what can cause unpredictable illness with seemingly no cause.
Pain and illness is your body showing signs of being overburdened. If you continue with a toxic lifestyle you are going to simply wear it out. To allow your body to focus on healing and detoxing metals that are stored, you have to give it less work. Less work for your body means a cleaner life with fewer chemicals and poisons.
Consider your daily use of chemicals in cosmetics, personal care products, cleaning products, pet products and garden supplies. They all add up to a daily detox workload for your body. If your body is busy working on reducing the chemical in your daily shampoo or soap, it just cannot focus as much time on removing your metals. What you eat also matters.
When you start to clean up your life, don’t forget your skin and lungs. They both absorb easily. What you breath and put on your skin matter.
Below are some topics and questions that most people ask. My answers are from my own experiences and from others who are in the same position. You should verify anything you read for yourself, remembering that the combination of toxicity for your body is unique to you.
If I have “Silver Fillings” am I Mercury Poisoned?
1. Yes, all “silver fillings” contain mercury.
2. To understand how fillings poison see the Smoking Teeth video linked below
3. These fillings are an ongoing source of contamination and danger.
Gut Health and Candida Testing
If you have metals poisoning, you can expect that your gut is suffering too. We casually call the problem “candida”. Keeping the gut happy is one of the most important things you can do to lessen symptoms including pain, illness, lethargy, psoriasis, eczema, nail fungus, brain fog, IBS and many more common complaints that are actually gut related issues. Rule out candida or Leaky Gut issues with the simple home test.
1. Candida testing for gut health is easy. Find the steps are at
2. Read more about symptoms and protocol at searchforthecausenotjustthecure.com.
Some background information you should have before detoxing metals.
1. You cannot clear the body of contamination with an ongoing source of toxicity. That
means that if you still have mercury fillings, and all silver fillings have mercury content,
you will not recover until they are safely removed. You can, however, assist your body
during this time by nutritionally supporting it, removing all other sources of toxicity
and eating foods that naturally assist in detoxification. Detoxing is not a remedy for
ongoing contamination, in fact, many say you should not formally detox while there are
mercury fillings in your mouth.
2. A medical professional, traditional or natural healer, will be a great asset.
3. Traditional doctors are not often well versed in metals poisoning treatments.
4. Insurance, currently rarely pays for metals treatment or proper testing.
5. Blood testing in not an appropriate test for metals testing. Although it can
show when there is contamination in the blood, it cannot show what is stored,
giving a false sense of security if a test says you are clear of metals.
6. Clearing the body of metals should be slow and deliberate.
7. No two bodies will react the same.
8. Combinations of poisons are far more dangerous than just one contaminant.
9. Your diet will be a factor.
10. Nutrition matters.
11. Expect your gut to be out of balance, causing candida overgrowth complications.
12. Never stop being involved in your treatment decisions. You will be the expert.
13. Metals hurt going in and coming out of the body.
14. You can never know exactly what to expect as symptoms and beneficial treatments evolve.
Removing Mercury Fillings:
1. Removal of mercury should only be done by a dentist who acknowledges the
dangers of the removal process and takes precautions to protect you.
2. It is not unusual for great sources of pain or symptoms to disappear immediately
when mercury is removed. Other issues require detoxing and still others could
3. Knees and hips are common pain centers with mercury fillings.
4. Patients have reported an end to medical conditions such a fibromyalgia, multiple
sclerosis and other neurological conditions after fillings are properly removed. There
is usually no medical confirmation of these changes that names mercury as the
cause. You cannot expect an instant cure or diminishing pain, but for those with the
experience, none reported the condition returning.
5. IAOMT is an organization of medical professionals who understand the dangers and
safe removal of mercury. Dentist referrals are available at www.IAOMT.org.
How long does it take to detox metals?
1. There is no single answer to how long it will take to detox a body.
2. Combinations of metals and poisons will affect the speed of clearing.
3. The health of the body is a factor in how efficiently the body can detox.
4. The length of poisoning will be a factor.
5. The amount of poison stored in organs and tissue will be a factor.
6. Detoxing metals can take years.
7. No one can predict exactly how efficiently your body will detox.
Is Metals Testing Necessary?
1. No, but it can provide an initial baseline.
2. Most will find they have an accumulation of more than one metal.
3. Regular testing can be expensive and not always necessary.
4. Tests can often show spikes in levels of metals which are explained by a release or
“dump” from storage in the body and back into the bloodstream.

What are important life changes to be made?
1. Cleaning up your environment matters.

9. Remember that skin is your largest organ and will absorb toxins as will lungs.
Can I begin detoxing heavy metals naturally on my own?

Foods that Detox
You can help your body help you detox. See the foods that help at
NBMI, the compound in FDA trials for metal toxicity,
can show minor reactions for
those reactive to sulphur.
In a recent video Dr. Boyd Haley discussed NBMI, his compound used to safely detox mercury and other heavy metals, and mentioned that those who have a reaction to sulphur could experience a similar reaction with NBMI. He has clarified the connection for me and his response is below. In asking if one needed to be tested for sensitivity to sulphur before using NBMI the answer was "No". He suggested that those reactive to sulphur would likely already know this about themselves. They would be those who felt a mild reaction or rash type feeling after eating sulphur foods like onions, garlic, red wine or salad bar foods treated with sulfite.
He explained that the reaction for those sulphur reactive who took NBMI might be the same as if they ate an excess of thiol containing compounds. The symptoms would be a small rash on the arms or chest areas that goes away quickly after ingestion stops.
The fix for those sensitive would be to reduce the dosage to 1/4 of the recommended dosage for several days and then slowly increasing the amount until the rash symptoms stop completely. Also, taking a molybdenum supplement has helped some.
He explains, “The basic biochemical issue is that there is a decreased ability to convert the toxic sulfite to the non-toxic sulfate by the molybdenum requiring enzyme sulfite oxidase. Molybdenum supplementation helps in most cases, but it takes a few days to maximize the activity of the sulfite oxidase. As an aside, autistics seem to have a 50 fold higher level of sulfite when compared to control children in a research project done by Dr. Rosemary Waring in England.”
NBMI is currently in FDA trials for use primarily as a drug to detox mercury and other heavy metals. It was previously used successfully and sold as a supplement. Although there have been many name changes, including OSR and Emeramide, the product is now known as NBMI by the parent company Emeramed.
The final release of NBMI promises to be the first real hope for those metals poisoned. It offers quick, efficient and effective results without the harsh side effects that the current options offer. To access NBMI during trials see the link below.
When your body craves sugar,
there is a reason.
Again I find myself craving sugar and feeling the painful effects of it. Every joint aches and the pain is overwhelming, but I cannot stop. I use what I call the antidotes for sugar inflammation which is usually turmeric, bay leaf tea, peppermint oil as a topical for pain, CBD internally and topically, probiotics, prebiotics and still I’m not able to fight the cravings of sugar.
Then in a quiet moment, I remember. How could I ever forget? Cravings for sugar can come from many things, but the fix for me is magnesium and minerals. The lack of either can cause severe cravings and pain.
I use a liquid form of minerals and a 100% pure spray magnesium oil. It does not take long for my body to adjust. When your body is balanced, you can look at sugar and laugh. It just does not call your name any longer.
If you use bottled or treated water, it is often void of minerals. The same is true of your food sources. The vitamin and mineral content can be low even though you eat and live well.
There is always a reason your body misbehaves. Search for the Cause, Not Just the Cure.
The US Right to Try Act could provide
access to the successful heavy metals
chelator, NBMI, by Emeramed.
Those with heavy metals poisoning have usually exhausted a number of therapies and remedies in the course of searching for wellness. The timeframe for ridding the body of heavy metals can extend into years and it is not unusual to use a lot of trial and error for deleting it from the body. The horizon often looks dismal, but there is a remedy in FDA trials that brings great hope to the long-term, extensive and painful remedies available for detoxing heavy metals.
The product is NBMI which has had several name changes and was known and Irminix, OSR and a few other names. It is all the same product and it has those sick from metals poisoning waiting to be able to access it.
FDA access has been a lengthy process which has driven many to use counterfeit products. These products made by others are sold on line and simply are not NBMI. In many cases the counterfeit manufacturer has the consumer sign a waiver stating they are aware that the product is not for human or animal consumption. Actual NMBI will have no such warning.
It is possible to access NBMI via the FDA process, but availability depends on the regulations in your area. In some areas it is very easy and in others it can take time.
We now have another possible route to obtaining this product that clears metals without the usual side effects or danger to the body. In May of 2018 the Right to Try Act was signed in the United States. It gives critically ill patients the right to try drugs that are in trials within the Food and Drug Administration. Thirty seven states have adopted the law on a state level. With or without state adoption of the Right to Try Act you are able to utilize the law, as state approval is not necessary.
Because the law is new not everything is known about how it will function or what will be approved. Things that are known for sure are:
Emeramed’s NBMI was on the market several years ago as a dietary antioxidant. It proved a very effective chelator of metals with an affinity for mercury. It crosses the blood brain barrier and clears the body of metals without painful side effects.
Once NMBI chelates to metal, it becomes inert and unable to harm the body. It will not drop the metal before it exits the body which prevents it from reabsorbing into tissue, organs, bones and brain. The chelated metal exits the body via the colon and not the kidneys, thereby preventing damage to organs. There are no known side effects to this product.
The focus of testing NBMI has been done with mercury. All results are positive for it's ability to chelate and remove the metal. It manages other metals as well, but has an affinity for removing mercury first. Because it crosses the blood-brain barrier, it clears the brain of metal and has shown success with Alzheimer’s patients, although it is not yet in trials for that particular use. Another area of success is COPD which can be an accumulation of cadmium in the lungs. Patients who have used NBMI for this purpose have experienced great improvement in very short time periods.
The US Army is considering testing of NMBI on mustard gas toxicity. The governments of Ecuador and Columbia have successfully used it on gold miners who use mercury to separate materials while mining. The success rate was overwhelming.
Currently NBMI is not available in the US without special authorization from the FDA. Some countries have allowed its use and others provide very simple access to NBMI. The links below will take you to the application form for Emeramed’s site to the FDA’s Compassionate Use application and another to the federal application for the Right to Try Act.

If you detox metals, you may have heard of NBMI, by Emeramed. It has had a few name changes in its history and has also been known as OSR, Irminix or Emeramide. The compound was sold as a supplement for many years, but in order to provide it for its highest and best purpose as a heavy metals chelator, it had to be submitted to the FDA for trials. Currently, NBMI is in that process and has not yet been approved for use as a drug. Therefore, it cannot be sold to the public.
On line reports by “users” have a wide variety of comments. Some claim success and others include side effects with their progress. The question is, what are they actually buying?
To clarify, the properly sourced Emeramed product is 100% pure and has had no reported side effects. Even when used by foreign nations to detoxify gold miners who use mercury daily, there were no reported side effects. In current trials, there are still no reported side effects. In prior use history as a supplement, there were no reported side effects.
Consumers are buying inexpensive counterfeit OSR or NBMI from illegal sources. The content is unknown and therefore, the side effects will be particular to the content of the counterfeit product.
In calling one of these counterfeit sources myself, I was told that I would need to sign a release. The release stated that I was aware that the product was not for human or animal consumption.
There is understandably a sense of urgency when the body is full of metals. This is how counterfeit products become popular. Taking the risk is a personal decision, but without doubt, NBMI will be worth the wait. There is an approval process for compassionate use. The link below will provide the details.
