Having suffered from severe chronic dental ingestion sped up by dangerously high levels of toxicity by the actions of Oral-Electro galvanism, for 7 years, prior to diagnosis, it was imperative to chelate quickly, removing the life-threatening (elemental) inorganic mercury, nickel, and palladium toxicity from the body.

This information provided is written by the actual patient.

The 2- step process to help prevent further toxicity


Severe chronic dental ingestion is likely to be caused by a problematic dental inclusion of one or more dental fittings. It is finding the problem and removing it safely under holistic guidelines that can help reduce the ingestion of dental toxic vapour.


Chelation is crucial to help remove as much metal toxicity from the body as possible. The patient is in control, eating and drinking the right foods to help speed up the chelation process to remove the toxic metals that have been identified.

There are quite a number of differing online opinions from health sites of what one should eat during a chelation period for mercury exclusion to provide maximum chelation of toxicity from the body but without any real evidence of documented successful patient history.

A number of health sites refer to just “mercury” detoxifications and chelation in a very general loose way, rather than whether it’s elemental, inorganic, organic, or ethyl mercury chelation, for example, and whether they are referring to acute or chronic mercury chelation which would be handled in different ways for best results.

It’s partly the reason for this website to have been written and to offer an insight into a real person having to chelate the dangerous and life-threatening chronic ingested dental mercury (elemental/inorganic mercury), nickel, and palladium toxicity. These were the 3 metals registering the highest levels of toxicity, however, there were more than 10 metals testing on or above the public range for toxicity, mostly all could be traced to dental vapour ingestion.

I expected to be diagnosed and provided with chelation information by the NHS but the organisation ‘bungled’ care for 7 years, whilst I became sicker and sicker only to find that currently no one in the NHS is trained to consult and diagnose elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity and palladium.

The chelation diet is a delicate balancing act.

My case required to urgently address the low selenium levels being experienced in the body, typical of mercury depletion, (See Chapter 18, The Mineral Wheel for further information about mineral synergy), which helps importantly the thyroid to perform properly and to adhere to a strict food chelation programme aimed at removing elemental/inorganic mercury quickly from the body.

Once these showed significant levels of improvement, and after important dental works were completed to remove certain mixed metals from the mouth, other foods could be re-introduced into the diet that had to be eliminated because they were known not to aid or slow down the process of recovery from elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity.

Initially, on diagnosis, organic eggs were not eliminated from the diet, however, organic cheese, organic milk, organic yogurt were. These were re-introduced later to aid strong nickel chelation which particularly likes a dairy-based diet.

Listed below are more changes that were made to the diet to enhance toxin removal and good health, found to be beneficial in this toxicity case of elemental (that became inorganic) mercury, palladium, nickel, and other dental ingested toxin removal.

Each patient is an individual and requires their own tailored plan to combat toxicity and the information provided is what worked best for me. It was painstaking work to assess menus before they were bought and eaten. One has to be dedicated to achieving better health.



Clean, fresh water is hugely needed every day as a way to stay dehydrated well. There’s a number of different medical opinions about how much water should be consumed each day. Coffee, and tea consumption and the natural amount of water from eating fruit and vegetables are counted into the amount being about 1.5 litres of fluids. The amount thought to be needed is about 2 litres.

Consumption of water was greatly increased on the first day of diagnosis and still remains so today. Coffee and tea were eliminated and not drunk for at least a couple of years. WATER IS VERY IMPORTANT, which particularly helps to flush out the lymph nodes being notorious organs that can be affected by mercury, known to be high risk with possible cause of cancer. 

Brita® water filter was purchased, using filtered water daily and where consumption rose to at least 2.5 litres daily. Filtered water is still used today for drinking water and when cooking vegetables, (if lightly boiling), as it was immediately when diagnosed.

Filters still continue to be replaced more regularly than directed.

Bottled water was never purchased for consumption.


About 70% of meals were EATEN RAW providing the best nutritional value from the first day of diagnosis but have decreased as health improves or during wintertime when there is a natural craving for warm food and drinks. Now reduced to about 50% consumption entering the fifth year of chelation, 60% at least during summer months.

  • 80/20 organic vegetable/organic fruit consumption.
  • More than 10 fresh organic fruit and vegetable portions consumed a day.
  • Organic meat only ever lightly cooked/sealed.
  • No processed meat consumption.
  • No microwaved foods, baked or grilled foods consumed.
  • Greenpan™ cooking pans helping to used reduce/eliminate metal toxicity from the cooking process.
  • No prepared manufactured sauces of any kind consumed in the first three years after diagnosis. Only organic prepared sauces now consumed infrequently.
  • No fizzy drinks.
  • No metal tins or containers used to store foods. No metal foil coverings.
  • Wooden spoons and ladles used during the cooking process.

Cows milk 

Some online health practitioners believe cow’s milk and dairy products should be removed from the diet, whilst mercury chelating. This was adhered to for a period of time.

Dairy milk was replaced with a plant-based alternative, almond-based milk for 18 months and then reverted back to drinking organic semi-skinned (green top) milk, which helps to aid a nickel-free diet.

Today, now into the sixth year of chelation a strong dairy diet is consumed alongside other well-known foods aiding mercury and the balance seems to have been struck correctly. Nickel’s remaining presence can be measured from specialised dental blood tests and the evidence also by improved visual nickel-related eczema being kept low or not appearing on the body.

Alcohol and Drugs

Having never drunk huge amounts of alcohol keeping within UK recommended levels, it came as a complete surprise the difficulties of consumption just after a few months after the accidental knock to the oral cavity and dental restoration during the unconsented surgical operation, 2009.

It became almost impossible to drink any alcohol after a couple of years. This was reported to clinicians regularly but they didn’t seem to know what the cause was dismissing this. I now know that this is a very important symptom of chronic elemental/inorganic mercury dental ingestion.

The reason is that elemental/inorganic mercury is known not to absorb drugs and alcohol into the bloodstream. Sulphur particularly in alcohol reacts with mercury.

Notably, there are numerous US chat sites where residents complain frequently about the problems of consuming alcohol, when suffering from mercury toxicity, leaving you with much worse symptoms than ‘light headiness’ after just a couple of sips. This was similar to my case.

Alcohol is very difficult to drink today, now in the sixth year of chelation. Wine is only drunk on celebratory wine on a handful of occasions during the year. There is still an immediate reaction of feeling very lightheaded and a feeling of being not in control, just a sip or two will start this effect, as it is well known that alcohol does not absorb well in the body when poisoned with chronic elemental/inorganic mercury ingestion.

There are wider implications when prescribed drugs. Drugs do not absorb in the body either, the way they were designed and manufactured to work. This does provide questions to be raised such as how a toxic patient will react to having the Covid-19 vaccination.

24. Dental Toxicity and Covid-19

24. Covid-19 pandemic brings new problems for the severely chronic dental ingested patient. Elemental/Inorganic mercury fails to allow drugs absorb in the ways they should work bringing new challenges. Toxichealth.co.uk

Keep reading

Drugs were only once taken in 2012, when the NHS prescribed drugs whilst suffering from severe toxicity, by clinicians who failed to disclose to the patient they were not trained to recognise the symptoms of elemental/inorganic toxicity being presented.

The NHS response when informed of the toxicity 2019, suffering from an accident leading to broken bones was to simply ‘double-up’ the dose. Again, this did not work in the way those painkillers were designed to work.

Selected organic foods

After the initial six-week organic food chelation detox when diagnosed, and with more intense research undertaken for mercury chelation, a more structured diet was followed, for best and speediest recovery aimed firstly at elemental/inorganic mercury removal, being the most dangerous and highly toxic metal in the body.

Read posts 13 – 16 about the start of the chelation and ‘best’ chelation foods that were consumed.

Foods such as processed sugar and milk were entirely removed from the diet, along with soy, most grains such as rye and oats (high in manganese content, as is mussels and hot chocolate drinks). Salt was not taken and almost completely removed due to eating no processed foods. 

A high organic vegetable and fruit content diet was consumed at approximately 80/20 percent ratio.

Later, importantly, as more information came to hand, certain vegetables were excluded from the diet thought to help the redepositing of mercury back into the bones. ‘ The Oxalate Diet’ and vegetables particularly high in manganese content that was known to work with mercury in depleting good minerals from the body excluded.

The important Oxalate Diet where certain vegetables are excluded is still followed in the sixth year of chelation, post diagnosis. You can read more in Post 15 Chelating.


Whey is regarded as an essential product and forms part of The Glutathione Diet required at the start of the chelation process.

Immunotec ® powder was consumed on the recommendation of the chiropractor to help the glutathione diet, for the first six months of chelation. 

I didn’t particularly enjoy the taste, however, consumed it as part of the important chelation process.

Organic turmeric 

After a few months into detoxification, organic turmeric was consumed and still is today. Its inflammatory benefits are discussed widely on many health websites, and where the British Medical Journal had featured an interesting case of turmeric being used in a patient recovery programme from cancer with overwhelming success.

Read Healthline’s article – 10 Proven Health Benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin

Between 5-10 grams of powdered organic turmeric is mixed into a glass of organic semi-skinned milk daily. This is a modest amount of curcumin which is taken additionally and not a priority to help recovery, more for general wellbeing.

Organic turmeric root is also purchased and approximately 2cm long shoots are eaten daily when not consuming the powder and milk dose.

It is noticeable that turmeric helped improve hair and nail health, particularly during the chelating period when using chlorella, discussed in post 14, which is so beneficial and particularly high and powerful in various good nutrients. Before eating turmeric, nails used to become very soft and flaky with noticeable dry cuticles. Turmeric in my case seemed to rectify this, help to grow hair and nails more quickly, and provide improved hair and nail health.


Fish had not been eaten before diagnosis for a year or more, nor immediately after.

Growing numbers of people are finding that eating the ‘wrong’ fish is providing them with symptoms of methyl mercury – different to the symptoms of elemental mercury which converted to inorganic mercury in my case, due to vapour ingestion, which can be attributed to chronic dental ingestion.

Very Well Health site provides more detailed information about the risks involved with eating fish, stating that ‘all fish contain trace amounts of mercury’. Some fish, contain high amounts of mercury, enough to damage a fetus or newborn.

VeryWellFit.com details the best fish to eat to avoid possible mercury consumption (see image featured below).

After a year into the chelation process for the removal of the severe toxicity caused by the chronic dental ingestion, fish consumption was resumed and the benefits of two weekly ‘small fish’ portions were felt from their beneficial Omega 3 fish oils, a natural product of eating oily fish that the body needs.

The Mineral Wheel (read more Post 18) provides information suggesting that the mineral iodine may be depleted by mercury, getting enough iodine has been shown to help prevent hypothyroidism, and fish high in iodine RDI value includes cod.

Eat More Fish

  • herring
  • haddock
  • mackerel
  • oysters
  • salmon
  • sardines
  • scallops
  • anchovies
  • shrimp

Fish Not To Eat

  • tuna
  • king mackerel
  • shark
  • swordfish
  • wild sturgeon

Fish sold in tin cans is avoided and there is now much debate and scientific reviews being undertaken of the effects concerning microplastics in fish.

Take note that when presenting your medical history to NHS staff, it’s imperative to provide how long and in what quantities you consume fish. I hadn’t been eating fish for over 1.5 years, despite this, an NHS professor of toxicity failed to realise the difference in symptoms presented between chronic elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity and acute methyl mercury toxicity, associated with fish-eating. That professor later admitted he was not trained to recognise chronic elemental/inorganic toxicity nor had an NHS facility for specific dental toxicity blood testing.


Having never smoked this was not a problem associated with the toxicity. Cigarette butts contain mercury, as well as nickel and cadmium. If smoking, try and stop. 


Similar to chlorella, known as blue-green algae, can be used for heavy metal detox. Again, effective at binding toxins and purging them from the body as a nutrient-dense food, packed full of vitamins as well as a host of minerals including magnesium, zinc, and selenium.

Naturya Organic Spirulina Powder 200gm packs can be purchased from most supermarkets. Just one pack only, one six-week detox, has been consumed to reduce toxins such as cadmium and lead, more known as useful detoxification as a ‘quality smokers chelation’. It is noticeably easier to find to purchase from local supermarkets and health stores than to find Chlorella on the shop’s shelves.

You can read more at Healthline about the benefits of consuming Spirulina.

Packaging Problems – Plastics and Cans 

There is much concern about recent findings over the number of microplastics being found in water bottles and fish and the heavy dependence in everyday life where this may now affect human health.

There was a considerable reduction of plastic at the start of chelation, removing existing kitchen plastic food storage containers, and purchasing new BPA-free kitchen storage containers.

Food was not purchased, where ever possible, when sold in non-recyclable plastic bags and metal tin containers.

A large percentage of independent organic producers do not use plastics in their packaging processes.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is an industrial chemical widely used in common plastic products such as the linings of food and drinks cans. Again, most independent organic food companies shy away from using cans in their food production and must state clearly that their cans are BPA-free when doing so. *Take note that large supermarkets’ own store brands are not so scrupulous when selling organic foods in tins. 

The UK Government considers there isn’t a risk from BPA currently, and other global government agencies are currently undertaking further research. 

Re-thinking the kitchen environment when one has toxicity has noticeably helped to improve less waste going to UK landfill, with increased raw eating providing more composting.


The addition of visual rashes was first identified as caused by nickel chronic dental ingestion provided a further list of foods one is suggested to avoid and a list to encourage consumption. These lists are available on our eczema post – post 6 and further worked into the diet menus and remain so today.
