Posted by: PCUK-Positive, Wednesday, October 26, 2011, 2:37pm
eating a beef salad and cracked a back tooth somehow lol swallowed a big chunk of amalgam filling, any detox advice.

I had just taken two Deflect prior to eating the salad, perhaps i should take a few more? I had also taken Harmonia deluxe a bout 3 hours earlier in a fruit smoothie with proberry.

all probably caused by a moment of weakness yesterday evening having some quality street sweets.

It will probably cause you less harm to swalow the  filling than it would if it had stayed in your mouth. You'll probably poop out most of the filling without the metal being absorbed. The bigger danger is probably the exposed surfaces of the other half of the filling still in your mouth, with ragged edges/more surface area than usual. Get yourself to a dentist ASAP!! Even if you can't find one who knows about amalgam safety, IMHO it's better to get what's left of that filling OUT and replaced with something else rather than leaving the broken filling in there for days or weeks while you do research on dentists.

The dentist will want to cap it, I would think so be prepared for how you want to handle this.  But a cracked tooth isn't something to let go to long or you might have to have a root canal, Like Ruth says it's time to the the dentist.

root canal, is that what they call it? anyway it's a real bady.

According to dentists who practice safe amalgam removal, a root canal is just as toxic, if not more toxic than an amalgam filling.  The alternative is to have the tooth pulled altogether if you need a root canal.

I am not sure if Ruthie is correct that the amalgam is less likely to cause you harm if ingested.  It will now be subject to digestive enzymes and constant heat.  Heat releases the mercury in fillings, so I would look at drinking lots and lots of water, at the very least to help your body eliminate the mercury.  I posted a thread on cilantro pesto and chelation therapy.  There is a protocol by a doctor on that thread using cilantro and chlorella.

agreed with ruthieg.... also with Mark to poop out this filling quicker ;) ;D....

Yeah, I'm with them.  When you chew and you have amalgams, I've read it creates mercury vapors in your mouth.  So, you'll probably be less affected by it going through.  Big chunks will come out.  And you can eat some rice and salads or something, lots of fresh veggies and fruits in the meantime.  24 hours or so.  I wonder if you should look for it.  It'll come out though.

PC, it is not just chewing that leaches mercury.  It is heat as well.  I have read and continue to read a lot about this since I have a mouthful of amalgam.  I agree with JJR that you should eat a diet that will help you flush your system and drink as much water as possible.

C Sharp posted this link on another thread.  Maybe this will be helpful.  There is a youtube video attached, Smoking Teeth = Poison Gas where they dip an old amalgam filled tooth which has been extracted into water the same temperature as the body and you can see the mercury vapor rising from the tooth.  When they raise the temperature of the water to 110 degrees, such as would be the case with a cup of hot beverage, even more mercury is leached.

Here are a few quotes:

Quoted Text
Excretion of inorganic mercury, as with organic mercury, is mostly through feces. Renal excretion of mercury is considered insufficient and attributes to its chronic exposure and accumulation within the brain, causing CNS effects. Organic mercury can be found in 3 forms, aryl and short and long chain alkyl compounds. This is 100 times more toxic than the ionic or vapor forms. Bacteria in the mouth, stomach and intestines, or in the blood, through a process called methylation, converts mercury vapor and ionic mercury into deadly methylmercury.


Quoted Text
Organic mercurials are absorbed more completely from the GI tract than inorganic salts are; this is because of intrinsic properties, such as lipid solubility and mild corrosiveness (although much less corrosive than inorganic mercury). Once absorbed, the aryl and long chain alkyl compounds are converted to their inorganic forms and possess similar toxic properties to inorganic mercury. The short chain alkyl mercurials are readily absorbed in the GI tract (90-95%) and remain stable in their initial forms. Alkyl organic mercury has high lipid solubility and is distributed uniformly through the body, accumulating in the brain, kidney, liver, hair, and skin.


Personally, however, I don't think the amalgam will leach any more mercury than it has already been leaching while in your mouth.  To be on the safe side, however, I would work on moving it through your system as quickly as possible.

I had all the amalgam taken out of my mouth over twenty-five years ago when it was not considered a problem at all by most dentists. Naturally, there were no protective measures taken AT ALL when this was done because of the refusal to acknowledge any dangers whatsoever! I felt a huge benefit in my overall health after it was done. So the "before" was a whole lot worse than the "after" in my particular case! The dentist died a long time ago and we were about the same age.

I’d take chlorella if that happened to me.  When I had my mercury fillings removed the dentist rinsed my mouth out with a chlorella liquid.

I just watched Mercola's video about chlorella's use, and it is very interesting. The part he mentioned about the benefits of chlorophyll was the most interesting part to me though. Back before I knew anything about Dr. D. I had a huge problem with acid reflux from a hiatus hernia. The only thing that helped was Tums, and I ate plenty of them with some relief. (Prescription drugs made my problem worse.) The problem was that the Tums caused me to become anemic, and that had never happened to me before in my life or since. I know Dr. D. says  Explorers tend to be anemic, but that has never been the case with me, thankfully! --Except this one time when I was eating all those Tums. But the reason I bring this up - and this is very important - is that I happened, in a round about way, to learn that CHLOROPHYLL was a huge benefit for anyone suffering acid reflux. It is really amazing how it helps. If something bothers my stomach, I chew a couple of chlorophyll tablets. I don't use the high potency caps, only the tablets. Sometimes if something makes me feel a little nauseous, down go two chlorphyll tabs. Works every time. These little tablets go everywhere with me! Just thought I would pass this on!

I've never tried it yet, but I have it as a supplement.

How about drinking a lot of CALM or something with magnesium so you'll pass everything through very quickly.

Hi, Ribbie, I've missed you too! Just sent you a PM. I've been reading the Lyme thread, and you folks have my very best wishes in your fight against this awful scourge. Power to the people! -- I have to say that I really don't like bugs and especially ticks! I don't want them in my house, and I don't want them biting me! :'(

Spirulina is good too! Apparently algae bind heavy metals and transport them out of the body. You can buy it as a supplement tablet.
