Mercury Stored in the Body Will Change A Life Forever
in the form of amalgam
fillings in baby teeth are enough toxicity
to change a child's life forever.
IQ, personality, developmental disorders,
psychological development and cognitive thinking
are at the top of the list.
Removing amalgams is only the start of
healing a toxic body.
When more than one metal is contaminating
the body, the problems are exponentially greater.
The onset of mercury symptoms can be slow and random enough to be completely overlooked. Parents might notice that their child is having more and more trouble spelling or seems to be lagging in reading skills. Coordination could be stifled without the child appearing to be anything but a poor athlete. Flashes of anger and anxiety can be attributed to a laundry list of possibilities without metals poisoning ever being considered.
A child learning math might stumble repeatedly, without being able to calculate or memorize answers they have already learned. When this happens, brain fog from heavy metals is usually not the first thought. Vision and hearing might fluctuate without parents noticing. When ticks, tremors or seizures develop, sophisticated conditions will be used to label what is actually metals poisoning.
The more traditional complications of mercury and lead poisoning are also overlooked. ADHD, autism, Multiple Sclerosis, a weakened immune system, allergies, autoimmune conditions, lazy eye, palsy, neurological disorders, suicidal tendencies, anxiety, insomnia and a host of other problems have roots in mercury and lead poisoning. It can take decades for metals stored in the body to develop into these conditions. That is one reason why they are rarely traced back to metals exposure.
The most common sources of mercury poisoning in children is dental filling and vaccinations. Dental fillings, which are about 50% mercury, release mercury vapors during chewing. The gasses from the poison, are absorbed by the tissue or breathed into the lungs. In either case, the body detoxes what it can and stores the additional burden to keep the bloodstream clear and the body safe.
The use of mercury in vaccines can be called thimerosal or thiomersal, among many derivative names . Thimerosal can be found in many pharmaceuticals as a preservative. The FDA also allows mercury, under a varied list of names, to be use in eye creams, eye drops, nose drops, ear drops and skin bleaching creams.
In the case of lead, primary suspects for contamination are paint and water. FDA allowable levels on dinnerware, cooking utensils, glasseware and foods also contribute to toxicity. Symptoms, although varied, are similar to mercury toxicity.
If you suspect metals toxicity, you will need to look carefully for expert advice. Most traditional doctors are not equipped to manage more than acute cases. Ridding the body of stored toxicity is not something a doctor, except the rare few, can speak to as they remain untrained.. Insurance is also not likely to be a helpful resource for the kinds of testing and treatment needed.
Testing will be a challenged urine test or a hair analysis. A challenged urine test uses a chelating agent to coax the metals out of storage so it can be measured while leaving the body. A hair analysis, which some do not consider as accurate, is much more simple and can also provide a good baseline for a detoxification regiment. Whichever method of testing is used, expect subsequent testing to fluctuate. It is not a straight line effort.
A blood test is the exact wrong test, yet most doctors still use it. Your body is in a constant state of detoxing and purifying your systems. At any given moment the blood could test clear for metals just because of the natural functions of the body. A clear test, tells you nothing about what might be stored. It is this storage that is the danger in years to come. A positive blood test would identify metals in the blood at the moment of testing, but again, it can tell nothing about storage.
There are some very natural ways to detox a body from metals and there are a number of chemical compounds. If you are detoxing a child, is is good to know that the process of unloading toxicity feels the same as when it is introduced. There will be side effects that can bring a state of confusion, emotional behaviors, depression, weakness, lethargy and a number of random issues. One never knows when the body will release toxicity or how it will manifest. Side effects are unpredictable.
The best approach to detoxification is to go slow and build the body’s resources in the process. Support the organs and systems with whole foods that include meats without hormones or chemicals and foods without pesticides. This means that most manufactured foods will not be good choices. The additional of GMO crops means the introduction of glyphosate, or Round Up, and the weakened body cannot take more toxicity.
In addition, it is best to keep the toxic body as clean as possible. Eliminate all chemicals in the household in exchange for natural substitutes. Start cleaning up the toxicity allowed on the body via personal care products and cosmetics. Finding gentle detox methods like epson salt baths and dry brushing will also help.
Clearing the body of metals is a journey. Learn all you can and know that every body is different and each toxicity burden is different in those bodies. Find what works and research all practical advice, while you eliminate as much toxicity as possible. The best results happen when you "Give Nature a Try."
