Chelating Mercury, Nickel and Palladium – Post 17

Features – Water – cooking – cow’s milk – alcohol – selected organic foods – whey -turmeric – fish – smoking – spirulina – plastic and cans – eczema

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

This information provided is written by the actual patient.

There are quite a number of differing online opinions from health sites of what one should eat during the chelation period to provide a maximum chelation of toxicity from the body but without any real evidence of documented successful patient history. It’s partly the reason for this website to offer an insight into a real person having to chelate the dangerous and life-threatening chronic ingested dental mercury, nickel and palladium toxicity.

The diet was a delicate balancing act. Urgently, at first, addressing the low selenium levels being experienced in the body coupled with a strict mercury chelation. Once this showed significant levels of improvement, and after dental works were completed, some foods were re-introduced that were known to aid a strong nickel-free diet including organic cheese, organic milk, organic yoghurt and continued eating organic free-range eggs.

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


Water consumption was greatly increased on the first day of diagnosis and still remains so today.

It’s VERY IMPORTANT, particularly helping to flush out the lymph nodes which are notorious organs that are affected by mercury, known to be the cause of cancer. 

Purchased a Brita® water filter, increasing daily water consumption by at least 100%. Used filtered water for boiling lightly cooked vegetables, replacing filters more regularly than directed and never purchase water in plastic bottles 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. Now reduced to about 50% consumption entering the fifth year of chelation.

  • 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 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 used infrequently.
  • No fizzy drinks.
  • No metal tins or containers used to store foods. No metal foil coverings.
  • Wooden spoons and ladles used in the food process.

Cows milk 

Some online health practitioners believe cows milk and dairy produce should be removed from the diet, whilst mercury chelating.

Dairy milk was replaced with a plant-based alternative, an almond-based milk for 18 months and then reverted back to drinking organic milk.


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.

It became 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 mercury dental ingestion.

Alcohol is very difficult to drink today, now in the fifth year of chelation. The most drunk is a glass of celebratory bubbly on a handful of occasions during the year. There is still an immediate reaction of feeling very light headed 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 mercury ingestion.

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 mercury removal, being the most dangerous and highly toxic metal in the body.

Foods such as processed sugar and milk were entirely removed from the diet, along with soy, most grains such as rye and oats. Salt was not taken and almost completely removed due to eating no processed foods. 


Whey is regarded as an essential product. Immunotec ® powder was consumed on the recommendation of the chiropractor to help the glutathione diet, for the first six months of chelation. 

Organic turmeric 

After a few months into detoxification, organic turmeric was consumed and still is today. It’s 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.

10 Proven Health Benefits of Turmeric and Curcumin

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

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


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 inorganic mercury which can be attributed to chronic dental ingestion.

Very Well Health site provide 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.

After two years into the chelation process for removing the severe 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.

Fish Eat More

  • 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 concerning microplastics in fish.


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, particularly useful as a quality smokers chelation.

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’s 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.

Organic food was not purchased, where ever possible, when sold in non-recyclable plastic bags and 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 has noticeably helped to improve less waste going to UK landfill, with increased raw eating providing more composting.


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


Posts are in numbered order for completeness. This is post 17. The chelation related posts are number 13 to 19. The next post 18 describes the use of supplements during chelation.
