If you guys didn’t know, a few months ago the FDA finally issued a warning against mercury fillings:

I’ve always been one to acknowledge that reducing toxic load – such as bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, preservatives, excess hormones, drugs & alcohol, etc., etc. – is ideal or crucial for healthy hair (re)growth.

Well, mercury was thought of as being one of those things that contribute to hairloss, whether directly or indirectly.

A large study of 20,000 subjects at a German university found a significant relation between the number of amalgam fillings with periodontal problems, neurological problems, and gastrointestinal problems(199). Allergies and hair-loss were found to be 2-3 times as high in a group with large number of amalgam fillings compared to controls(199,9). Levels of mercury in follicular fluid was significantly higher for those with amalgam fillings (9,146). Based on this finding, a Gynecological Clinic that sees a large number of women suffering from alopecia/hair loss that was not responding to treatment had amalgams replaced in 132 women who had not responded to treatment. 68 % of the women then responded to treatment and alopecia was alleviated(187). In other studies involving amalgam removal, the majority had significant improvement (40,317). Higher levels of hormone disturbances, immune disturbances, infertility, and recurrent fungal infections were also found in the amalgam group. The results of hormone tests, cell culture studies, an intervention studies agree(9,146). Other clinics have also found alleviation of hair loss/alopecia after amalgam removal and detox(40,317). Another study in Japan found significantly higher levels of mercury in gray hair than in dark hair(402).

I will be looking for a dentist to remove my amalgam fillings. The tricky part is looking for one who knows how to do it right because removing them improperly could cause more problems.

I have to replace them with something else though (some other filling that doesn’t contain estrogen or floride) because i’ve developed fasciculations and diffuse hairloss after i had that damn amalgam put in several years ago.

One thing that should be noted about the removal of mercury fillings.

If your tooth is in overall healthy condition w a mercury feeling it should be left alone as the removal of the mercury filling itself may cause exposure and digestion? of the susbtance itself.

edit-i see you you already touched base on this

It is imperative to have an experienced dentist do this

i think i might have found a decent and experienced dentist for this procedure. But, i’m almost afraid to ask how much it’s gonna cost me. Dental services cost an arm and a leg in this city (Toronto).

A great way to get mercury out of your system is with Spirulina & Chlorella. Also you can try using bentonite clay. Just search around you can find a good amount of info on either of them. If you get your mercury fillings removed it would be a good idea to use one of these before and after to remove any excess mercury that has been released into your body. Better to be cautious then really on a docs reputation.

hapyman how effective is spirulina. It seems to be cleaning out my gut but I wonder if it actually chelates the metals out of my system. Spirulina has been worth it for me either way.

I personally had a ‘doctors data’ hair analysis done and had very high mercury levels. My trichologist got me on a regime of Dabur chyawanprash ( a indian 2000+yr old herbal combination based around amla(indian Gooseberry) with very high vitamin C )which provides nutrition and is detoxifying, Blackmores SPPC sodium phosphate and Potassium chloride which balances stomach acids and raises ph, and to chelate the mercury, oral glutathione 200mg daily.

heres some pts to note
: When chelating u must have sufficient minerals to take the place of the heavy metals and minerals u lose. Because when u get exposed and mercury gets in ur blood, after a few weeks it will settle in ur tissues in organs etc and take the place of minerals u r deficient in, and cross the blood brain barrier.
so the more deficient u r , the more mercury u retain. When u r detoxing the reverse is also true. u will draw the mercury out, but u need the minerals to take its place otherwise it will just settle in tissues again.

: There r no true chelaters, there are only substances that will stir it up
so u need lots of water so it exits the body, not just gets stirred up and settles again.

: Depending on how toxic u r, u will experience headaches and symptoms for a few weeks, this is neccessary and normal, and why smaller doses of watever chelating agent u use r better than larges doses, so it exits bit by bit.

: Oral glutathione worked well for me, and it changed my life, b4 i could barely function, but now i am studying medical science, but there r those that say oral glut, gets destroyed by stomach acids and a better way is to take NAC
(N-acetyl-cysteine) which makes ur liver produce more glutathione.

:the toxicity of amalgam fillings is proportional to their corrosion rate which is dependant on ph in ur mouth, how much u grind ur teeth, how u eat etc.

:get them removed by a professional who believes in mercury poisoning and will use a dam to stop further contamination, not all at once. 1 a month for e.g.

ont listen to arrogant doctors who dont buy into the mercury debate.
after chelation and neurological symptoms dissappear as well as hairloss, youll be a new person and your doctor wont understand until they go thru it themselves.

: as someone said above, chlorella is very good for heavy metal detox, but i’d use it complementary to NAC or oral glutathione.

a few things b4 i answer that, a few yrs ago i had most of my hair but still receding at the temples in a typical fashion. about the 2nd or third norwood progression. I started working at a screenprinter, which required me to be hunched over a pressing machine screen prints on paper r basically melted onto caps and shirts releasing strong fumes which i inhaled. I also had to work with finely sprayed acetone and lots of turps, in a extremely hot factory under a steel roof in a very hot part of australia. I was born at the bottom of New Zealand where it is very cold and so my genetics arent made for the heat and so i sweat alot more than others and absorb more chemicals. I also had a mouth full of amalgams. I dont know which is responsible for my high mercury, and ill never know. (quite possibly both)

While i worked there my hair was falling out more and more and by the time i left i had lost alot to a pt where i was getting teased about it.

After 3 months of treatment when the chelation-induced neurological symptoms had dissappeared, my hairloss subsided and went back to a slow recession again which is where i currently stand. I do see a few signs of regrowth in my thick areas, such as hairs with tapered ends which means they have grown up in between my 3 month hair cuts, and some terminal hairs have fallen out with small 1/2 inch hairs attached to the same bit of white stuff, which says to me that new hairs r pushing through, however not in my temple areas.

So yes it has stopped the mass shedding, but no, it hasnt had the type of regrowth in MPB areas that we r all chasing. Maybe a little in crown, but not in temples. However it may work a treat for u, in fact it could be the sole cause of some peoples hairloss.

essentially if u have metals being excreted in ur hair, it results in breakage and an immune response, which makes them fall out. Best way to check is to get a hair analysis from company ‘ Doctors Data ‘ because this is the best company, or another one that uses Mass Spectrometry. DO NOT use a company such as some of the DIY test kits purchased on line, as they use old technology that has varying untrustworthy results.

If u have neulogical symptoms such as Migraine, restless leg syndrome, depression, manic mood swings etc. ( I didnt realise i had these until they dissapeared) might as well just start a chelation routine anyway. As long as its temporary and natural, the worst that can happen is youll be deficient of a few minerals for a few months.

Hope this helps. ( sorry for blabbing on a bit)

I’m with ya I had a lot of the symptoms ,headaches, etc… and did a urine analysis from Doctors Data and showed I had Mercury Poisoning along with a lot of other metals in my system. It is strange because I had only one Mercury filling but the doc put me on DMSA chelation and a Glutathione Push every week and its slowly coming out.

@chuckp:

Try looking into adding bentonite clay to your regiment. You can try a bentonite bath or a bentonite foot bath. Also you can take it internally but can make you constipated if you don’t get enough fiber. If you take it internally do so with no other supplements except a psyllium supplement. Psyllium is a fiber supplement and will help you stay regular while chelating.

I stumbled upon this thread through google. I just wanted to add that since I’ve gotten my amalgams out (I had 8) and begin chelating with oral DMSA, my hair is growing back. I had growth within the first round of chelating.

I have alopecia areata on the left side of my head. I lost all of my girly sideburns and most of the hair around my ear. It was bald for about a year until I finally realized it was mercury poisoning. My dermatologist said that there was NO way mercury could do this…Well I am pleased she was wrong.

Just do a lot of research before chelating. You have to be cautious because you can hurt yourself if you don’t do it right. Good luck!

I believe ya. I’ve read other examples where getting the metals out has resulted in hair growth. There’s that guy from the CH-77 product…to give one example:
