Ever since I decided to change my eating and dietary habits several years ago due to health issues, my health has improved immensely. It is amazing that given the chance to heal, the body will. Along this journey, several other factors have come up for me and my body to address for further healing and cleansing.
Back at the beginning of the year, I had some symptoms creep up that were affecting me: sleeplessness, achy joints, brain fog, irritability, and headaches, just to name a few. I had been doing great on my diet and when this came up I knew it was time to address a new culprit. That culprit turned out to be my OLD (from childhood) mercury fillings. I had read about the topic several years prior, but never thought much about it since. Well, it was time now.
The poisonous vapors are odorless, colorless and tasteless, so you can’t tell when it’s happening. But you can be sure that if you have so-called “silver fillings” in your mouth, you’re continuously exposed to mercury, which passes readily through cell membranes, across the blood-brain barrier, and into your central nervous system, where it can cause psychological, neurological, and immunological problems. (source) I researched the topic greatly and I had the same symptoms as mercury poisoning—they fit the bill. I wanted to be sure though!
I have a wonderful, holistic chiropractor that I see from time to time for adjustments and he utilizes several different healing modalities in his practice such as kinesiology, acupressure, etc. He is phenomenal and with such compassion. He tested me for mercury poisoning and YES, that’s what I had. I don’t eat fish and the only source from the poisoning was the old amalgam fillings. We suspect that the change of diet and the amount of cleansing and detoxing my body had undergone (and continues to undergo), had released the “bubble of protection” my body had created and was no longer there to buffer the effects that were somewhat hidden with the lifestyle/diet/environment I used to lead. I like to compare myself sometimes to a block of marble or stone and I chip at away at it (from the MANY years of build-up) to get to the GEM of my core being (health, emotional and spiritual). It is ever evolving. I love to uncover more beauty, strength, awareness, health, vitality, etc. thru this process!
BEWARE! Amalgams Must Be Removed PROPERLY
It should be clear that there’s simply no such thing as a safe mercury filling. However, please do NOT make the mistake of having your amalgam fillings removed by a dentist who is not properly trained in safe amalgam removal. Doing so could expose you to tremendous health risks, due to the large amounts of mercury vapor being released during the removal process.
Research has shown that if you do not take proper safety precautions during the removal process, mercury levels in your blood can rise three to four-fold, which may result in acute toxicity.
SO PLEASE …
Make sure to use a so-called biological dentist that is trained in properly removing mercury fillings. Some things that need to be done to keep you (and your dentist) safe during the procedure include:
- Providing you with an alternative air source and instructing you not to breathe through your mouth
- Using a cold-water spray to minimize mercury vapors
- Putting a rubber dam in your mouth so you don’t swallow or inhale any toxins
- Using a high-volume evacuator near the tooth at all times to evacuate the mercury vapor
- Washing your mouth out immediately after the fillings have been removed (the dentist should also change gloves after the removal)
- Immediately cleaning your protective wear and face once the fillings are removed
- Using room air purifiers
I found a fabulous dentist that met all these requirements in Atlanta, GA (2 hours away from me) – Atlanta Laser Dentistry – Dr. Al Norton. He specializes in the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings. He did a wonderful job, used precision care and protocol and I experienced NO PAIN what so ever. It was the best dental experience of my life. I was super pleased with the experience and to get those old fillings out of my mouth.
Thereafter, I proceeded to slowly cleanse (yes, you want to do it slowly as to not over burden your body with toxins that are dumping out of the system) with incorporating lots of cilantro in my diet (smoothies, salads, soups, etc. – not a problem, for I LOVE cilantro), parsley, chlorella, infrared saunas, colonics, and was feeling better and seeing improvements. However, I felt like I needed something else. That’s when “everything in its proper time and place” came about to me. When you need or are looking for something, it is given to you when you are ready.
Having the old mercury amalgam fillings removed from my mouth was one of the best things I could have done for my health. It wasn’t cheap, but my health and wellbeing are more important to me! Please do your homework well and research for a qualified dentist if you are considering having yours removed.
Why Liquid Light?
When I was researching products to hasten detoxing of heavy metals, Liquid Light by Sunwarrior kept popping up in my searching. It is nature’s most powerful heavy metal chelator of heavy metals. Liquid Light delivers essential minerals while also eliminating toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and mercury. I was familiar with Sunwarrior – I was using their Protein powder and thrilled with it. If their Liquid Light was as good in quality as the protein powder, I was willing to give it a try. I’ve written about their protein powder here.
*Note: I am very careful about the products I recommend and Sunwarrior has gone beyond matching my high standards of quality.*
As I mentioned above, I was already taking cilantro and parsley (chelating and detoxing foods) in my smoothies, but felt like I needed a little something else. Upon adding this product into my smoothie drinks every morning, I felt a charge of energy and enhancement that I hadn’t before. It was like there was a small clog and the Liquid Light purged thru it and everything started working and flowing better (in and out). Oh yeah! I was hooked! Again, I was implementing colonics to flush the toxins out faster and not have flowing thru my system. However, once I started with this product, I noticed results quickly (within one week) and they just continued to improve.
My husband, Scott, works with and builds AMAZING artistic pieces of quality stained glass. He has to work with lead as a border material. You know me (if you don’t by now), I look out for my loved ones and told Scott since I was adding Liquid Light to my smoothies, he gets it too. He said, “OK!” I could give that man anything to take and he would. He trusts me that much in quality feeding and supplementing for us. That’s nice! He says he feels better when taking this item too. Score!
I love him and want him to be the healthiest, happiest man around. I plan on growing young/old with him and we are going to stay in awesome health and shape in our later years and live to the fullest.
Liquid Light – 3 steps from solar energy:
1. Sunlight to vibrant healthy plant life 2. Microbial production of the Fulvic complex from healthy plants 3. The natural Fulvic complex extracted with cold water from an ancient undistributed depositFulvic acids, a natural extract from ancient plant deposit that was created 75 million years ago in the upper cretaceous period, consist of an immense arsenal and array of naturally occuring phytochemicals, biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, free-radical scavengers, super oxide dismutases, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals. Fulvic Acids greatly enhance the bioavailability of important trace minerals. Regenerate and prolong the residence time of essential nutrients in the cells. Modify the damage or toxic compounds such as heavy metals and free radicals. Enhance the permeability for digestive, circulatory, and cell membranes. As the most powerful, natural electrolyte known, fulvic acid restores electrical balance to damaged cells, neutralizes toxins and can eliminate food poisoning within minutes.To the science of living cells, fulvic acids are vital in bringing substantial amounts of nutrients and minerals into water solution and delivering their living energies to the living cells. Fulvic acid has the ability to dramatically detoxify herbicides, pesticides, and other poisons that it interacts with – this includes many radioactive elements. (source)
I can attest to many of these claims that they DO WORK! I have been using Liquid Light for about 6 months and feel GREAT when I use it regularly. I mix in my smoothies and take my supplements to enhance absorb-ability and utilization. I have noticed an increase in detoxing and my digestion has improved immensely. Even just being exposed to so many toxins in the environment that most of us are – this is an AMAZING protocol product to have in ones detox arsenal. I swear by it and highly recommend Liquid Light to all. It has a neutral taste and blends beautifully with Sunwarrior’s Protein Powders and Ormus Greens.
Eating healthy and implementing quality products into my diet and lifestyle are part of my health insurance – including exercise, fresh air, laughter, LOVE, friends, and working on changing old thought patterns into new, positive ones for a GORGEOUS, QUALITY Life!
