According to research published recently in the peer-reviewed Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology (JOMT), the safety thresholds for mercury exposure can be exceeded during dental procedures involving drilling on silver mercury amalgam fillings, specifically if special precautions are not in place.

For more than one hundred years, dental gold has been considered the “gold standard” in dental restorations. Used in crowns as well as tooth fillings alongside mercury silver fillings and other metals in the mouth, it has been found that this can create an electrical current sensation in the mouth.

Once the mainstay of dentistry, amalgam mercury fillings are now in sharp decline and have been discontinued in several countries. Despite its deceptive name "silver fillings," amalgam's main component is actually mercury, a neurotoxin and a heavy metal.
The banning of mercury fillings has become a worldwide issue. The use of mercury-silver or amalgam dental fillings has been complet...Read Full Post »

Adrenal fatigue is rampant. With our highly stressed lives, poor diet and environmental toxins, adrenal gland imbalance will occur and can be a major undiagnosed underlying factor in many chronic illnesses.
Testing for adrenal fatigue is easy (saliva test) but rarely done by most physicians, unless specifically requested. Even more unsettling is that most physicians have no clear cut remedy to treat this illness, as the causes of the adrenal fatigue can be multifactorial. I...Read Full Post »

Replacing your mercury fillings with a dental material that is more biocompatible and less toxic, is usually the goal of the vast majority of patients that come to see me. And I applaud each of you who actually take a proactive step to do so.
The question that usually comes up afterwards is: How do I remove the residual buildup of mercury from my body tissues?
There are many simple ways to detox, and you can actually read about many of them in my bookRead Full Post »

Recently at a dental meeting, I met many colleagues who promote their practice as mercury-free. As such, they believe that they are also mercury-safe since they no longer place amalgams within their practice. Although this sounds good in theory, the reality is significantly different. These mercury-free dentists have no safety protocol in place, and as a result, are exposing their patients, their employees and themselves to a heavy load of mercury aerosol each time old amalgam fillings are dr...Read Full Post »

Aluminum toxicity is rampant.
Considering that many neurological diseases are on the rise, this is not a surprising statement. Aluminum is not a heavy metal like mercury or lead, but its effects can be just as devastating.
Aluminum can accumulate in the brain, causing seizures and reduced mental functions (Alzheimer’s for example). It ...Read Full Post »

Toxins in the human body are an ever growing health concern. Mercury fillings, fluoride and BPA in dental materials are just the tip of the iceberg. When you truly stop and think about how many poisons we are exposed to on a daily basis, “overwhelming” is an understatement.
Toxins are not only in our food and medical supply; they are also in our living environment, including the air we breathe and the invisible EMFs that bombard us 24/7.

Health, happiness, Dr. Oz. Three ingredients that create a sure recipe for success.
The Health and Happiness Summit with Dr. Oz at Radio City Music Hall this weekend was definitely a success. With an enthusiastic audience of 6000, and a cast of health experts with amazing credentials, how can you go wrong? Even William Shatner showed up for a few minutes of entertainment. So hard to believe he’s over 80 years old and still appears so much younger.Read Full Post »

Many years ago, when I first learned about the possible health hazards associated with mercury fillings, I went to a holistic dentist to have my mercury fillings removed. Not a big deal. Just a couple of fillings. And I certainly was educated enough to know that I wanted a dentist who knew how to do this with the proper safety protocol so that I would be protected when this toxic material was removed from my teeth.
So imagine my surprise when this “holistic” de...Read Full Post »

Elemental mercury is the second most toxic substance on the planet; and it is in every single one of those pretty silver fillings in your mouth.
