I just received my Urine Toxic Metals report and I am toxic in Lead, Mercury, Bismuth and Thallium.  I read through stephanieelise's post on mercury toxicity and would love to get some additional information on mercury and lead toxicity.

I watched the TEDMED video that Mark posted by Mark Hyman.  He showed his mercury test, which is from the exact same lab I got mine.  His mercury level was 100.  Mine is 240.   According to the lab report, my urine mercury equals or exceeds twice the maximum expected levels.

My urine lead exceeds three times the upper expected limit per the reference population.  

As a non-secretor, I have a mouthful of old, almalgam fillings.  Growing up in the late 50's and early 60's, my parents had an old farm house that was built in the 1800's.  My entire childhood was spent with a remodeling project going on in one room or another.  

Many of you know that I have been eating fish, fish, fish because of the heart disease in my family.  I decided to do the toxic metals test more as a baseline, not expecting the results I got.  I am not symptomatic but it was strange how during the metals testing I felt horrible.  I guess I am going to have to look more closely at the fish I choose.  Is salmon ok?  I noticed that chlorella is used to detoxify.  How about the fish that eat the algae, working up the food chain, so to speak?

I am exercising by running 3-4 days a week and really sweating up a storm.  The other two days a week I do a routine of lifting, abs, etc., but I don't sweat nearly as much.  Is the sweating good for me?

So many questions:  do I have my old fillings removed and then do a detox protocol?  Do I do a detox and leave them in?

Will that help with the lead, too?

What is the conventional wisdom these days about removing vs. leaving old almalgam fillings?

The thing that has helped me the most with metal toxins are these baths.

http://www.magneticclay.com/productlist.php

I use the natural clay bath as it doesn't have any extra herbs in it (I'm super sensitive to scents). The site is full of information. I'll tell you this though, when I first started taking the baths the sediment was very black after I finished the bath. Now there's hardly any black at all, which means there is less metals to pull out of me. At first I just used a foot bath which helped enormously as well, in case you don't have a bath tub.

Start getting the almalgam filling removed as soon as you can. I finally got all mine removed as of about six months ago.

The "conventional wisdom" these days is to have old amalgam  fillings removed by a dentist who knows what s/he is doing, following specific protocols during removal to minimize your exposure to mercury during the removal process.

Ruthie, is there a good way to go about finding a dentist who specializes in this?  How can one be sure the dentist knows what s/he is doing?  I can see this is going to be an expensive proposition    Fortunately, I have dental insurance, but it only covers so much.

The higher up a fish is on the food chain the more likely it will have mercury. Sardines are less likely to have as much mercury as salmon.

Wild caught Alaskan is probably better than most. Just be sure about the source.

I do buy wild caught, Alaskan salmon.  I think the mercury is from the amalgam fillings in my non-secretor mouth.  The lead, however, is much more of a mystery.

Has anyone had their amalgam fillings removed due to mercury poisoning?  I have a mouthful of amalgam fillings and tested off the charts for mercury.  I would love to understand the process and the detox.  How long does it take?  Does it really throw you for a loop?  I am feeling so fantastic right now that doing something that is going to make me feel terrible is not exactly something I am going to rush out to do.

Anything you can share on the amalgam filling removal and the subsequent detox process would be greatly appreciated.

I also tested off the charts for lead poisoning.  Can amalgam fillings be the cause of lead poisoning or is that generally considered to be from exposure to lead paint and/or lead pipes?  Will the detox process for mercury detox the lead as well or do I have to do a separate detox?

I have Lola's recipe for the Cilantro Chelation Pesto.  Dr. Nash is on vacation this week and will be back next week, so I can discuss this with her, but I would love to hear some of your personal experiences with this.

I am really bummed out about this.  It feels like I take one step forward and two steps back

Dr. D's and Dr. Nash's colleague, Dr. Ryan Partovi, ordered in on behalf of Dr. Nash.  The actual testing was performed by Doctor's Data, Inc.  Did you watch the video posted by Mark on the stephanieelise's thread on mercury toxicity?  He shows a slide of his urine metals testing results and it is the same company that did my testing.  His mercury testing level was 100.  Mine was 240.  Anything greater than 4 is considered high.  I am pretty stunned by my results.

Did someone combine my two threads?  I posted one about being toxic with mercury and lead and a second one about amalgam filling removal and now they seem to be combined and the title of my first thread does not show up.  Just wondering

I just read about the clay baths. I think it is a gentle way to go and glad you got your 4 fillings out. I will do this too because there was titanium found in my tissues a couple years back, but I have not done mercury urine test. I would suggest a complimentary vitamin/mineral routine that you can look up somewhere  that will also help move the toxins out of your system gradually.  As an explorer it took me 6 months of vitamin therapy and fresh air away from pollutants to get all the toxins out of my system that caused Graves Disease. But I did heal completely; and the disease was based on  all kinds of pollution around me that seeped into my body. You can  heal completely too! I suspect your lead poisoning to come from paint, somewhere. Lead dust that got into you.Or air pollution from another source. Well, at least you are safe from cryptonite for a little while yet with your lead. - just teasing -

Thank you, Leanne.  I found that thread and just finished reading through it.  I made an appointment with a dental group who specializes in mercury removal from the website posted.

Ruthie, Dr. Nash (through Dr. Partovi) ordered mine from Doctor's Data, Inc., 1-800-323-2784.  It cost me $120.  You take some pills and eat raw, organic broccoli the night before.  Then you wake up the next morning and urinate into a cup.  Then you take more pills (Captomer and something else) and eat raw, organic broccoli and urinate into a cup for the next six hours.  You store your urine in these containers.  When done, you place samples of your first morning urine and subsequent urine into two different vials and send it off by fedex, much like your secretor test.  Results are available in about a week.

No one has commented on the lead poisoning.  Maybe I should start a separate thread, since everyone is commenting on the mercury poisoning?

When I had my amalgam fillings removed the dentist used chlorella to rinse my mouth out with.

I take Bio super food which has 6 different algae in it .  It was developed by a Russian scientist after Chernobyl to help the people with radiation sickness.  I heard him lecture at a health expo a few years ago and met his beautiful daughter who regained her heath after her radiation exposure.  I used to work at Fermi Lab and went down in the tunnels with my radiation suit on so I take the strongest formula.

I used to sell/take a product called Super BlueGreen Algae.  It is funny that you mention Chernobyl, as I was told that during that accident, the company shipped over so much of their product that it was difficult to obtain here in the US.
