To Walt and those in the know - amalgam removal

Posted by Naya on January 02, 2003 at 23:27:26:

Someone on the BB once mentioned three basic requirements for safe removal of amalgams. Does anyone remember what they are? Also, is it possible to go to a non-specialized dentist to go through the procedure of amalgam removal if s/he follows the necessary requirements? Thanks to all in advance.

I just finished reading an interesting thread on another site regarding this topic. I believe it could be valuable.

As it is quite long I will just post the link here for anyone interested to follow.

Regards,

Naya,

The three elements of proper protocol that I've heard of are using a rubber dam to prevent ingestion of particles, low-speed drill/squirting extra water to cool the drill tip to minimize heating/vaporization of mercury, and an outside air supply to minimize inhalation of mercury vapors.

Hope this helps.

P.S. I'm working on a reply to your post below about our similar health history and how I'm coping. It's a busy week and getting to be a long post. Stay tuned :)

...with amalgam removal. Did anyone get well, worse? Was this the answer you had hoped for to your health problems, combined with other wellness techniques, of course?

Hope you don't mind my butting in, Naya! Thought you might also be looking for the same information.

Naya,
You should also get a Clifford Materials Reactivity Test (ph.719-550-0008). This will insure that non-reactive replacement materials are used, otherwise you can end up even sicker than before the amalgam removal.
Hope this helps---ktj

I am having my amalgams removed this year. I have already had two of seven taken out and replaced with onlays. This is in conjunction with a total wellness program, including removing as many toxins from my life as possible. I don't believe that removing amalgams alone is a solution to anything, but only a part of an entire cleansing, wellness lifestyle.

The morning after I had the first two amalgams removed, I had two red splotches on my face that did not itch or anything, but they were raised. They lasted about 4 days and slowly faded over that time. Also, I had a sore throat for a half of a day. I don't know if this was due to the amalgam removal, but I can let you know when I go in for round two of three if the same thing happens. I have never had anything like that before.

The dentist says that removal exposes you to a lot more vapor in a short period of time than by leaving them in, but that acute exposure and getting rid of them permanently is better in the long run. Also, I have some electrical current problem going on and that is not good at all.

I would not go to a non-specialized dentist if I were you. It is a harrowing experience enough without having someone that really knows how to minimize your exposure. In fact, my judging point was whether or not the dentist uses mercury amalgams in their practice at all, not just advertises that they remove them. I found one that is vehemently against them.

Thanks! This is very useful information to me. My current dentist does not use amalgams at all in his practice, but he is not a holistic dentist who specializes in amalgam removal. He says he can do the removal, but I was thinking that a specialist would be better. I just wondred if the specialists would be more expensive. Are you finding the process to be very costly? I'd really like it if you could keep me posted on your progress and any negative reactions you have during the whole process. Thanks very much!

Thanks. I heard about people getting sicker from other replacement materials. This is very important info. I didn't know that there was a test for this, so thanks again. I'll have to check it out.

Clare, well I just checked out the site you recommended and now I'm back to my original position. Also, in another earlier thread that I posted to Helping You, I just read that he did have his amalgams replaced, but didn't notice any difference as a direct result. So.... I'm still stumped. Thanks again for guiding me me to this info.

I had my 13 fillings replaced 2 years ago over a 2 month period.

I first became sick during the process. All this upper respiratory -- throat, head, sinus (wonderful yellow/green discharge) stuff going on. Also, iritis (inflammation in eye) flared up which I had suffered from only one other time 10 years before.

I kept getting sick for a year after removal. Three more episodes of the upper respiratory stuff as described above, another bout of iritis, a couple episodes of vertigo, and probably some other things I can't even remember.

I didn't do any sort of detox.

It is now the end of the 2nd year after the removals and I haven't been sick at all the entire 2nd year.

My husband and 5 year old get sick once in a while and I still don't get sick.

Hi Naya,

I will definitely keep you posted. Yes, for me the process is a little costly. If I did not have the excellent insurance that I have, it would cost a lot more than I am paying. I am having onlays put in, which are costly. It is costing $807 a per tooth and I am paying $299 of that.

that you had your amalgams replaced years ago. Did you experience any definitive health benefits from this, or were you already well when you had it done? I apologize if you've already posted this somewhere and I missed it.

It's a big step, and I'm doing a lot of careful consideration before I decide.

Thanks,
Nutmeg

Hi, Nutmeg.

I was already well when I had it done. I tend to think that, having done it, along with the other things I have done for my own wellness, has helped me cope with the most serious type 2 kind of diabetes (Syndrome X) without any of the secondary complications of it after more than 20 years.

Hope this helps.

Walt

Thanks so much for your reply. By reading people's accounts, I am finding that many people who have had their amalgans removed either were already well when they had it done, or had it done without any detox protocol and were quite ill, or didn't notice any difference at all when it was done. Still hoping to find some folks who were ill with chronic conditions, followed a sensible detox plan, and got well. There must be some out there.

Will keep researching and considering, but at some point I will have to make a decision. The expense (over $5K, some of which may be covered by dental insurance) and potential harm in the short term keep me going around and around. Still, I seem to have reached a point in my healing that I can't get past. Mercury, of which I have lots, could be the missing piece. My doctor (environmental MD) certainly thinks so, and his own experience with regard to clearing up brain fog with amalgam replacement was very positive.

Thanks again for your comments and for this site!
