Amalgam Illness

Amalgam Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment : What You Can Do to Get Better, How Your Doctor Can Help

by Andrew Hall Cutler PhD

Former amalgam victim Dr. Cutler describes the world of an amalgam patient from the insider's view.

Some excerpts from the book on how to remove mercury deposits from one's body:

"First, do no harm... the DMPS challenge is not a legitimate diagnostic test since over half the population will give a positive result but most of them do not appear to have amalgam illness. In addition there is a high incidence of adverse drug reactions during it, including permanent disability and death. It should never be used. DMSA challenge tests that involve the administration of 500 mg–3g of DMSA as a single dose are also dangerous and not diagnostic. ...

Therapeutic approaches currently offered by some practitioners but which should NEVER be used include: DMPS by injection except when oral administration is contraindicated and dosage is low, DMPS or DMSA on any schedule not involving frequent administration of equal doses for at least several days in a row, EDTA chelation, or penicillamine in any form. Supplementary cysteine, glutathione, or a "high sulfur" diet, or chlorella should NOT be used. All of these "therapies" will be VERY HARMFUL to you...

For most people the proper chelation protocol using DMSA and LA (Lipoic Acid) is: Starting 4 days after the last filling is replaced, 50-100 mg DMSA every 4 hours (including getting up at night to take a dose) for 2-6 months, until urine mercury is reduced 80%. Then DMSA 50-100 mg + LA (Lipoic Acid) 50-200 mg every 3-4 hours (including getting up at night to take a dose) for about 3 days per week. When you feel all better, keep going for a few months. You may need to do this anywhere from 6 to 36 months depending on how sick you were to start and how hard your body holds on to the mercury. It is important to keep taking your supplements and medicines during the whole time you are chelating.".

Holistic dentistry

Toxic Dentistry ExposedToxic Dentistry Exposed: The Link between Dentistry and Chronic Disease

by Dr Graeme Munro-Hall BDS & Dr Lilian Munro-Hall

I'd never have thought that I'd "fall in love" with a dentist but in this case, it is coming close :-). This is an information-packed manual distilling some 50 years of experience in dentistry and how it relates to modern chronic diseases. In addition to detailing the "maverick" authors' view of what holistic dentistry entails and a comprehensive discussion of what practices and materials constitute "toxic dentistry", the book provides a number of fascinating case histories including people in extremely critical states of health which recovered after being treated by the Munro-Halls' V-Tox protocol which they developed to provide the safest possible removal of dental toxins and infections to their patients.

These people not infrequently came to them after already having been treated by another dentist who claimed to be holistic — but who actually made them worse!

Interestingly, Dr. Graeme Munro-Hall himself nearly became a victim of toxic dentistry when due to massive mercury poisoning from his previous work as a conventional dentist, he developed a serious heart condition some 30 years earlier which he managed to heal using a naturopathic approach.

I don't agree with absolutely everything the authors espouse, since personal experience makes me believe that the human body possesses a greater capacity for self-healing of cavitation infections (if properly and vigorously supported) than the authors give it credit for (they feel that only surgical cleaning will come to grips of these frequently serious infections).

Still, I highly recommend this book for the deep insights and light it sheds on the connection between illness and toxic dentistry. Quote: "This book is vital to anyone who has been told that there is no explanation for their condition or that it is incurable. By removing the dental toxins and infections correctly, patients can recover from all sorts of serious illnesses."

Tooth Truth

Tooth Truth

by Frank J. Jerome, DDS

An excellent primer by another honest and caring dentist containing such pearls of wisdom as: "It is common knowledge among dentists that over 95 percent of all dental treatments are optional." While it still recommends a number of treatments Healing Teeth Naturally (which — to the extent possible — embraces dental self-sufficiency) typically would not recommend (such as onlays or composite fillings), this is a book for those on a middle path between total dental autonomy and allowing minimalist dentistry intervention likely to only have minimal impact on health while offering cosmetic and probably other benefits.

The only chapter I take issue with is the one dealing with wisdom teeth. While it is true that they can have (very) negative repercussions on health, there are other approaches than surgery that could be initially tried (see Impacted wisdom teeth: potential health impacts).
