Amalgams (silver fillings) and Mercury

I had 16 amalgams put in my teeth due to a car accident in 1990. Within a few years, I had debilitating pain all over my body radiating from another injury… but very much everywhere.

It's estimated that 75 percent of Americans are ignorant about that fact that amalgam fillings are actually 50 percent mercury, and this is no accident. The American Dental Association (ADA) popularized the deceptive term “silver fillings” so consumers would think amalgam is made mainly of silver when actually it has twice as much mercury as silver.


“Are You Being Tricked Into Having this Neurotoxin Placed Next to Your Brain?” ~Dr. Mercola

I never connected the pain I had, starting when I was 20 years old… to the “silver fillings” in my teeth because I had no idea they were full of mercury which was leaching into my brain and other parts of my body. I was being poisoned for over 20 years and I never even knew it.

I was diagnosed with “Chronic Reactive Arthritis” and doctors had me try a bunch of different arthritis medicines and supplements… but none of that helped.

Constant Pain

I read one of my journals from those years and I wrote, “The more I do, the more it hurts. The less I do, the more it hurts the next time I try to do something.” I wanted to move and get better, but the pain was intense. If I didn't move, the pain got worse. I was having a hard time doing anything.

I was put in pain management counseling because I wanted pain killers. Ibuprofen and Tylenol were not touching the pain I was in constantly. I was approved to take percocet and had an ongoing prescription for years. I tried to use it only in emergencies and to sleep and was taking many Ibuprofen per day just to make it through the day.

Pain Relief

This went on until 1997 when I found grape seed extract helped my pain. Years went by with me dealing with my pain by taking enough grape seed extract to make the pain go away. It was an expensive habit… but at least there were no side effects or risks of addiction.

I had several strange illnesses over those years. It always seemed that I had aches, pains and illnesses that could not be helped. I was often told that the pain I was experiencing was all in my head. I learned to deal with the pain. It was not always easy… and many times I would have to go to the emergency room when the pain and illness got to be too much.

Children Get Mercury From Their Mothers

My son got very sick in June of 2010. He was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and was not getting well at all with treatment. In December, I started studying about HPU which (very simplified) is a zinc deficiency due to heavy metal poisoning. In January, 2011, I had my son's hair tested for possible heavy metals and he was very high in mercury, lead and arsenic.

That is when I found out that a mother's toxin load is passed on to her children in utero. My son was toxic in mercury, in part, because I was toxic in mercury. I continued to research how to help my son detox the mercury.

I also scheduled an appointment with a biological dentist to have my 16 amalgams out. If you are looking for a mercury free dentist, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology is a good place to start.


If you have dental amalgams (silver fillings) are you aware of the danger you are in? Do you know that your children will be born with mercury from your toxicity? I wish I had known about this crime against humanity before I ever went to see a dentist.

  1. What do you do to detox from mercury, other than — or while — removing amalgams? Also, I recently broke a mercury-containing light bulb. Long story short, I could not clean it up in precisely the way the EPA web site recommends. Should I be doing something to detox? (I did see the link to your post on this subject, but the post would not open.)

    1. Buy the book “Amalgam Illness” by Andrew Hall Cutler… read everything you can from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt and don’t buy those bulbs anymore. Detoxing from a bulb breaking is just as hard on your body as detoxing from amalgams and exactly the same process. I will research a better way to clean up after a bulb breaking… but the best way to avoid this is don’t buy the bulbs with mercury!
