How Do You Chelate For Elemental/Inorganic Mercury Toxicity? – Post 16

How Do You Minimise Nasty Toxins?


Chelation is a method of removing certain heavy metals from the bloodstream used especially in treating lead or mercury poisoning.

In this patient’s case, the specialised blood tests suggested severe levels of chronic ingested elemental/inorganic dental mercury, nickel and palladium toxicity, (and at least 10 other dental-related metals testing on and around the public range), where the patient was exposed to over a seven-year period prior to diagnosis.

Elemental/Inorganic Mercury toxins had a long time to rest deep in the bones, chelation and restoring health was not going to be ‘a quick fix’.

3-steps to reduce dental toxicity

Reduce toxins being ingested

Reduce toxins put on the body and immediately around the body

Reduce immediate domestic and localised environmental toxins

Step 1

Reduce Ingested Toxins

On the day of the severe chronic dental ingestion diagnosis which had been additionally speeding up by the effects of Oral-Electro galvanism, a chelation programme was worked out to reduce ingestion of toxins.

Reducing toxins helps the body not to be ‘overloaded’, already severely overburdened, and to concentrate on chelating those already buried deep in organs, tissues, and bones.

Post 10 Explains how holistic dentists removed the suspected problematic restoration implant that the NHS health professionals had ignored, which was the root cause of ill health, (not ‘tooth grinding’ as one doctor had diagnosed!), the severely leaching amalgams, and other mixed metals from the mouth.

Posts 13 -15 and 17, explain chelation and the use of certain types of food and drink consumption as an effective chelator.

Drugs were not used in this chronic dental case but maybe in acute cases seen in NHS A&Es, for example, where accidental substances are known, such as inhaling mercury vapour from a spillage.

Step 2

Reduce And Controlling Toxins Put On The Body

Whilst a patient changes their diet to aid the chelation process and recovery, they must also consider other areas of toxins in their lifestyle that they use to maximise chelation.

It’s no good making huge sacrifices to one’s diet when one continues to put creams and lotions everyday onto one’s body that can contain harmful substances that can take less than half and hour to seep into the blood stream of the posioned patient.

The whole body needs to be reveiwed and the environment around the body for maximise chelation and success.

Here is a list of some of the changes made by the patient to help reduce continuing toxicity of the body and help speed up the chelation process.

These changes to make were not known to the patient on day 1 of the diagnosis, but with research, were introduced all within the first 3 months of diagnosis.

  • Lotions, make-up, hair accessories, jewellery and watches being worn on the body all removed.
  • Hair shampoo and conditioner were replaced with organic brands. (for example the moderately priced DGJ organic brand was used). Fortunately, there is growing popularity of organic brands available at good retailers including make-up.
  • Body lotions and deodorants, hair dyes, all make-up and nail varnishes were no longer used.
  • Metal framed glasses were swapped for plastic-framed glasses.
  • Underwear was replaced where metal-free trimmings were used.
  • Wearing natural organic fabric clothing and gloves.
  • Writing with metal-free pens/pencils.

It’s believed that following this removal, particularly of chemical-based toiletries, helped not to overload the body of toxins when the toxicity particularly was recorded at its highest by way of the specialised blood tests that been undertaken.

It also was, and is still, unknown how elemental mercury/inorganic mercury and palladium react with many of the chemical ingredients used in the manufacturing of toiletries. This is an extraordinary ‘grey’ area in our consumer-led lives.

The patient continues with this programme with the exception of wearing some non-organic clothing and occasional make-up, worn only on special occasions.


Magnesium is essential in the body and where it is likely that the UK like the US population suffers greatly from this mineral depletion.

Mercury is renowned for working with Maganese in the body that likes to deplete good minerals such as Magnesium, so it was beneficial to buy large sacks of Westlab™ Epsom salts and soak in a deep bath, every day, for a couple of weeks at the start of the chelation process.

There are various selections of bathing salts aiding various medical complaints where most are noted as having a high inclusion of Magnesium.

This allowed the high-value magnesium nutrients to soak through the skin for at least half an hour whilst in the bath. Noticeably, this “quick-fix” method of getting magnesium into most parts of the body particularly helped mobility, keeping magnesium levels higher in the body, easily depleted by manganese, which works in tandem with elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity.

The bathing was then reduced to every other day, during the first few months of chelation.

Large sacks were reduced to smaller packets to keep the salts fresh once opened as the need to soak so frequently in the salted bath water became less.

Now into the sixth year of chelation, this method of boosting magnesium and wellbeing has continued, decreased to 1 x 30 minute Epsom salts infused bath every 5 days, (or 2 baths a week when stiffness noticeably increases of limbs, generally whilst chlorella is being consumed, being part of the chelation programme).


It has been recognised for many years that the use of infra-red saunas may be beneficial to reduce toxins from the body.

Workers in mining communities around the world use saunas as a way of sweating the nasty toxins out of their skin that can bury themselves through hazardous work and provide respiratory benefits.

A facial sauna was used at home in the early stages of detoxification which was considered to help remove toxins sited just below the surface of the skin, around the mouth, and jaw areas, penetrating to a depth of 0.5cm. Whilst not deep, it noticeably helped in the stages of early chelation.

Dental ingested elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity is known for penetrating deep into the areas of the mouth, throat, gums and jaws and moving onto other parts of the body by way of ingesting the vapour and into the bloodstream. Symptoms were noted from 2009, and had 7 years to penetrate deep into the body, the elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity had much time to deposit deep around the face, jaw, and throughout the body before diagnosis was finally made.

Full body saunas were used, available at local health clubs, for some time, helping to relieve the agonising 24/7 pains experienced during the first 2 years during detoxification.

It became noticeable after this period of time, they were not as beneficial. It’s believed at this point in the chelation programme that the easier toxins to remove in organs and “surface” toxins resting in more accessible skin areas, particularly around the oral cavity, had been removed from the body, but the harder task of removing mercury toxins deep from within the bones remained and would take a much longer time if ever, to completely remove.

Saunas became less beneficial in the excretion of toxins at this point. The elemental/inorganic mercury just simply wasn’t sitting close to the surface of the body anymore but buried deep in bones.

Covid-19 and the use of sanitisers

The pandemic and Covid-19 posed new risks being severely elemental/inorganic mercury, nickel and palladium poisoned along with other dental metals and whilst in chelation.

One of the biggest problems was the constant need to keep hands clean and the use of sanitisers that contain various alcohol-based chemicals.

It was impossible to use these more than once a day without visual severe rashes and itching occurring, which could be diagnosed as Eczema and/or Psoriasis. It is the mixing of numerous chemicals particularly with elemental/inorganic mercury resting heavily in bones and constantly being redeposited in the bloodstream and (possibly lesser so after four years of chelation of organs) that cause these problems and the constant redepositing of mercury from the bloodstream back into the body.

Plastic gloves are worn when shopping to help minimise the risk that the Covid-19 virus spreads through touch although more and more recent research is pointing to the main cause through air droplets rather than touching items.

Palladium removal

Much focus is on elemntal/inorganic mercury, but it’s evident that palladium toxicity still remains in the body where symptoms particularly around the eyes, and aspects of poor mobility possibly contributed to palladium toxicity, have barely been removed over the 5 years of chelating.

Unfortunately, no medical organisation or clinicians really know how to remove palladium successfully from the body and the trusted IAOMT International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology believe it may behave similarly to mercury.

After 5 Years Of Chelation

The focus moved on to chelating the removal of mercury from the bones into the fifth year of chelation, where the chelation process is keeping the patient relatively free of 24/7 pain and visual symptoms for short periods of time.

Not only is there no scientific way to monitor this, symptoms just continue to reappear periodically. It will take many years to remove, if indeed, ever fully removed, and means that inorganic mercury is likely to be in the bloodstream and can still react with chemicals put onto the body.

\\\ Environmental Toxicity

Step 3

Chelating By Environment 

The environment you live and work in around you is as important as the food you consume and the reduction of lotions on the body to recover from chronic dental ingestion toxic poisoning. It’s surprising when you start looking at your environment, how toxic it may be. 

Whilst a patient battles with a considerably changed diet and lifestyle, a toxic patient must also consider the problems of ingesting toxic vapour around their immediate surroundings and try and minimise to help not overload the body with additional toxins. The body is already under great pressure to remove extremely dangerous poisons, so trying to reduce adding to these, helps the chelation process.

One of the first, simple changes was to look at everyday cleaning products used and stored in the home which were loaded with nasty toxins.

Cleaning products were changed to organic brands especially washing-up liquids and laundry cleaning. Products used are now from the organic ‘Ecover’ brand.

Cleaning products being used in the washing machine and particularly softeners actually contained mercury in their production of the solution. Changing products helped to lessen the risk of breathing in life-threatening vapours where bedclothes, sheets and duvets may have been washed in these toxic solutions, helping to stop further ingestion of toxins during the night when in bed and speed up recovery.

Covid-19 virus declared as a global pandemic bought about world populations wearing masks which helps not just to ensure the virus is not breathed in but wearing masks also helps to reduce breathing in other noxious toxins in our environment.

For example, there are plenty of ubiquitous substances every day hiding in vehicle exhausts. The total vehicle official figure, (2020), now stands at 40.4m cars, vans, trucks and buses, registered for road use, in the UK, including 18,250 ambulances. Masks can help towards the prevention of toxicity caused by this ingestion from exhausts, for example, caused by daily traffic when walking in our streets and travelling.

The Sun newspaper reported on children’s toys and other household items manufactured with a range of dangerous toxins. This starts to enlighten the public as to how many things in our environment are made from some of the most dangerous materials in the world known to man.

Daily Mail reports that a quarter of all NHS hospitals in England and Wales, UK,  are now recording dangerous levels of toxicity in their environments. 

Trying to reduce the many toxins of manufactured products around you will help general recovery.

Moving location, your home, and your work environment may not be an option. Moving from a city to a more rural setting with minimal toxins visually evident in the environment could help speed up recovery, but not, if situated next to a farm using pesticides, for example.

More immediately, making time to check your home contents, and how they are furnished is an option along with the quality of the air you breathe.

Candle burning

Candles are so popular to light at home making a lovely ambience, especially during long winter nights. However, popular and generally cheaper candles are made from dangerous paraffin wax and by-products that release nasty toxins when lit, combined with synthetic scents that are used to create a more pleasant smell than paraffin being burned!

This is a typical example of how one can make the home environment a better place by not buying these types of candles and purchasing natural organic candles (bases of soy wax, coconut wax, rapeseed wax, beeswax, and vegetable wax) mixed with natural organic essential oils where the ingestion of the vapour is less harmful, and by doing this helping to minimise toxicity in your body. The same applies to diffusers using natural organic essential oils.
