Amalgam Fillings January 10, 2018

Amalgam Fillings, Greenbrier, Arkansas

About 75 percent of adults have dangerous “silver” fillings. There is approximately 1,000 mg of mercury in the typical “silver” filling. This is nearly one million times more mercury than is present in contaminated sea food. Most people don’t realize that the mercury amalgams slowly release mercury vapor. Every time you chew, mercury vapor is released and quickly finds its way into your bloodstream, where it causes oxidative processes in your tissues. Oxidation is one of the main reasons you develop disease, as well as the primary reason you age. Oxidation in your body leads to inflammation… it also hampers your body’s ability to detoxify itself, which makes you even sicker. 

Common symptoms of mercury poising include: 

  • pins & needles, or burning sensation in extremities (peripheral neuropathy)
  • skin discoloration (pink cheeks, fingertips and toes)
  • swelling  and shedding of the skin
  • profuse sweating
  • increased heart rate (tachycardia)
  • increased salivation
  • elevated blood pressure (hypertension)
  • hair loss (alopecia)
  • transient rashes
  • muscle weakness (hypotonia)
  • increased sensitivity to light
  • memory impairment and brain fog
  • kidney disfunction
  • insomnia and mood disorders such as anxiety, depression, and emotional lability
  • tremors
