Hello everyone !!

For the past 19 years, I have been battling 'unrelated' health problems, only to find out that I have only ever had one very tricky issue.

Mercury poisoning.

OK so the issue is what am I meant to do about it ??

Other than being 100% SWAMI compliant which I am already.

Heres the catch, I think its a 'gene defect' - not so much actual mercury exposure . . .  

(I eat 90% organically, drink purified/filtered rain water, supplement/don't have fillings/don't wear makeup or use cosmetics)

The good news is I realised I don't have any other health problems. I guess that is partially due to having the best software available (thanks Dr. D!)

Help!! Or anyone gone through similar ?

P.S. - Mercury levels are through the roof!!!

Thanks Lola - is that just pesto made from cilantro ? Or ... should I add pine nuts and chard leaves ??

I am on all of these very interesting supplements at the moment (which I don't usually take), such as

- MSM
- Marine algae
- Magnesium malate
- Garlic (aged)
- Resveratrol (ok not so interesting but thought I would add it)
- Chlorella (not sure if allergic but ... at this point 'who cares')


I'm on heaps more but can't think of them all right now -

The interesting thing is that I always assumed my health was poor because I wasn't doing something right, rather then 'I was born with an independently minded gene'

Yes I think it is genetic.. I am O and I had worked with mercury for 10 years in my hand.. I also had mercury fillings in my mouth since the age of 3.5.. and so my exposure was enormous, but It never showed up in my tests.. lucky me..

I would expect many to tell you what to do, but in the end I would call the D’adamo Personalized Nutrition store.. and ask them..

BUT I have another idea.. at least for me.. could you do more damage by removing the stuff??? RATHER then BUILDING up your body's way to et rid of it with BTD/Swami dieting..

This is a question that Dr D might have answers to in the ER4YT Encyclopedia.. have you looked at the protocols there? I am not certain of they are posted here some place.. or if there is a Q&A some place for this very specific question..

I am glad you are approaching it with your thinking as you do.. how did you come to find out about the mercury? who tested you and why? How do you feel it? Your answers might be revealing..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

My Health Practictioner also had mecury poising without any fillings and recommends Ion (foot) cleansing, on a once a month basis. She uses clinician grade equipment, only recommended once a month.

Try far infrared sauna - soo good, feels like sunbaking on a beach but without the burn or harmful effects, sweating is a great way to detox heavy metals.  I had almalgam filings since early child hood too

Why so many supplements?

When I first started BTD/GTD, I would sweat like crazy and it smelled sour. I fell off the wagon for a few months and had to start GTD from scratch. My sweat, once again, smelled sour but I noticed a "mineral" smell on my skin a few days later. I found that the GTD makes me sensitive to smells after a while (and I cannot stand artificial flavors or scents as a result). I was wondering if it was my showerhead and water since the water has high mineral content but it also smelled metallic... you really have me wondering now...

Doctors in functional medicine have a lot of experience in getting rid of mercury. Mercury is very, very toxic. It is a good idea to get some chelation therapy.

I actually wonder because I removed my 4 mercury fillings April 2011. I experienced major symptoms after like severe itching, skin breakouts, etc. They say the mercury load in your body increases when you get them out.

I drank cilantro (huge handfuls) and banana smoothies two times a day and took bio algae concentrates and the symptoms got knocked out in about 2 weeks. I felt horrible though.

Back on track I think...

WOW ! Thanks for all of the responses !! Glad to hear everyone has their thinking caps on

Ok firstly just to clarify, I have no amalgam fillings -

I have had every sort of pathology testing in the past, and EVENTUALLY we decided to get a 'hair mineral analysis' - and good thing we did. After this, of course, I had a whole lot of other tests to confirm the results.

So I have always been on supplements (for the last oh, 4 years) - the older I was, the sicker I was.

One test lead to another test which led to a handful of supplements and perhaps a drug here and there.

@ Andrea - So many supplements to try and rid as much out of my system as possible, as I have read that both intense exercise and saunas can be ineffective as toxins may be released into the bloodstream - so these are targeted at other areas of detoxification.

@Passion princess - Yes, sweating like crazy is something I'm very familiar with, which means showering 2 x per day is a necessity. Of course, now I am worried about the water I am showering in ahahah

Oh another thing is I am actually a health nut, which means no alcohol, just incase any of you were wondering. Of course, I don't smoke either.

Any other ideas ???

@Goldie, I will be looking in the ER encyclopedia in the next few minutes, since I have it on hand !!

I think the place to go is the clinic ahahah but unfortunately I can't imagine myself hopping on a plane to the states' .....

I might get put on some sort of drug that is 'safe' that may help get rid of it faster. Will find out tomorrow !!


I'm certain the BTD/GTD + SWAMI changed my genetic expression in many many instances however I had no idea that one of my genes could be influencing heavy metals in my body.

@Wholefoodie - the foot cleansing sounds good. I've had problems with my feet, being so inflamed, or itchy, or skin peeling right off. At one point they have been fleuro pink in colour !!

@Mark - Thanks for your advice + the video was amazing! Will watch it again as I am a big fan of both TED + Mark Hyman. It reminded me we have one of his fantastic books, which i will give a look at soon

@Niagreen - I feel sort of like a car not running on all cylinders if that makes sense. Like I need a constant 'top up' - not sure exactly what gene defect I have but hopefully my toxicologist will be able to tell me tomorrow, although I suspect this is something I need to research myself.

This may be a silly question...but if toxins aren't released into the bloodstream to be liberated from inside cells how do they get out?     Doesn't everything have to move through the blood to get in or out?

Good point Serenity, I asked the same question but apparently we can move a lot of the toxicity out through our bowels/urine as opposed to using an organ such as the skin.

Not being qualified, I have no idea really how it all works and am just going by what I have been told!

I have heard that as much as 80/90% of the mercury comes out through the bowels. I have been using a sauna but that can become too draining sometimes. Showering can also be very tiring.

It seems mercury toxicity can be such a long arduous process with so many ups and down. The problem is that once you've had it for such a long time it kind of 'hides' itself away in the body as a way of protection, and you lose the things you dont need, like hair and skin quality! and it also mucks with the thyroid.. it makes you susceptible to parasites and viruses, its systemic affects are enormous. It can pretty much cause anything.

I'm a big fan of Mark too - his own story is a big motivator for me to get my metal levels down.

I was dumping tons of mercury through my stool by taking glutathione orally and with a gel rubbed on my liver and kidneys.  From the first day I took it I noticed a HUGE difference in the way I felt.

Was the gel also glutathione?

taking high dose chlorella and cilantro will pull it out of tissues, and taking high dose fish oil will help to "escort" it out of the bloodstream....I detoxed other heavy metals this way...

There's a cilantro pesto recipe floating around here somewhere.  I have it printed up but don't know where to locate it on this site.  Hopefully Lola will come along and post the link?.

@honeybee, thanks for that, I usually use LifeExtension or NewChapter fish oil, and luckily I know they have never been a problem because I had all the symptoms before taking any supplements!

But fish oil is something I always dish out top $$ for due to the risk of rancidity and toxins/mercury etc.
