Mercury fillings (often referred to as amalgams) remain to be used in the United States. Just recently a good friend of mine, took his children in to the dentist to be diagnosed with cavities. The method for filling the cavities the Dentist wanted to move forward was with amalgams. Yet, the Europe Union just banned mercury amalgams/dental fillings “in pregnant or nursing women and children under the age of 15”, effective July 1st, 2018. (You can read the full story here).
If you, as a mother has amalgam fillings, and/or your child has them and experiences seizures, please read further. Per the amalgam.org organization, dental fillings which are made from mercury (inorganic and methylmercury) reveal 10 times more mercury toxicity than those individuals that do not have mercury fillings. Mercury in fillings, is represented in the saliva and excretion. Once mercury fillings are replaced the saliva levels reduce by 90%!
Amalgam dental fillings produce voltaic electrical currents in the teeth, which push high levels of mercury into the gums and oral mucosa and increase mercury vapor release into oral air and saliva, where it is distributed throughout the body and causes significant harmful effects.”
The mercury becomes neurotoxic leading to neurological symptoms. Mercury toxicity can lead to autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, M.S., depression and many other symptoms. Mercury toxicity does not just occur in the mouth of the beholder. Prior to vaccinations, the most significant exposure to mercury for a fetus is via its mother.
From a functional perspective, mercury toxicity can lead to leaky gut (increasing vulnerability to infections), cellular destruction, impaired detoxification, nutritional deficiencies, brain toxicity, autoimmunity and so much more.
A large epidemiological study by the National Institute of Health, the nation’s principal health statistics agency, found a significant correlation between having a larger number of amalgam fillings and people suffering from conditions such as multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.
PLEASE, if you or your loved one has mercury amalgams, explore your options. Only consult a trained dentist in removing amalgams . The release of mercury, at the time of removal, can create significant health risks as well.
