Acute Mercury Toxicity or Chronic Dental Mercury Toxicity? – Post 22

After 7 years diagnosed with severe levels of chronic dental ingestion toxicity which included the highest levels of elemental/inorganic mercury, palladium, and nickel, sped up by Oral-Electro galvanism, the process of chelation, removing the toxicity began.

Mercury is called ‘The Silent Killer’ due to its failure to present itself visibly for many years.

Despite informing clinician after clinician of there being problems with the oral cavity, with the LR jaw, where no one took these patient statements and symptoms from top to toe seriously, the first visual presentation were bouts of unexplained pink rashes and flaky skin on hands, ‘coming and going’ and then visible, 24/7, causing intense scratching, pain and even body fluid oozing out of the hands. ‘Pink Disease’ had arrived attributed to elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity.

Metal blood testing indicated high levels of several metals toxicity over and on the public range. Public ranges are set notoriously high. This started to explain the poor deteriorating health and symptoms suffered for many years.

Further specialised dental metal testing was undertaken, including Mercury Tri-Tests which indicated low levels of Methyl mercury and inorganic mercury. Methyl mercury is often associated in the UK with fish-eating.

Third dental metal testing using the Melissa tests indicated that indeed the toxicity was suggestive of elemental/inorganic mercury at high levels and showed evidence that the elemental/inorganic mercury is the second most dangerous metal known to man needed urgent removal from the body along with equally dangerous palladium and nickel among numerous metals showing positive testing.

The reason why it is important to establish whether the toxicity is acute or chronic and what mercury derivative is that the chelation process, the process to remove the toxins from the body, is different.

What Does Acute Disease mean?

acute disease

Acute illnesses generally develop suddenly and last a short time, often only a few days or weeks.

What does Chronic Disease mean?

chronic disease

Chronic conditions develop slowly and may worsen over an extended period of time—months to years.

Is It Acute Or Chronic Dental Toxicity?

Much research had been undertaken by the patient and private clinicians exploring the many symptoms being suffered because NHS clinicians were failing to diagnose severely deteriorating health since 2009. The patient was presenting worsening symptoms and the patient was vocal about suspicions that the centre of the problem was possibly located at the LR jaw.

When finally resorting to private health care, various tests, scans and general metal blood tests were taken for numerous presence of metals, and repeatably returned positive at the highest levels.

The hands showed signs of eczema contributed to elemental/inorganic mercury after 5 years of reporting symptoms. Metals returned high-level toxic results being those that could be associated with dentistry, including general mercury testing, after 6 years and finally, it became important to take specific dental ingestion blood tests and dental leaching tests of amalgams, (aka mercury fillings), along with metal detection tests and oral cavity voltage testing.

Urine tests showed the body was pushing out mercury but at a very slow rate. This pointed to one thing the organs were overburdened with this toxicity and the metals needed excreting far more quickly Many clinicians will make the mistake that a low excretion rate is a good thing as there aren’t many toxins to excrete, but this is not the case when first diagnosed, and where a period of chelation needs to be put in place urgently.

Given the length of time of more than 7 years that deteriorating symptoms had been recorded, especially around the face, even suggesting the LR jaw was the centre of the problems, where these symptoms had been repeatably provided to the NHS clinicians by the patient, but ignored, left undiagnosed and misdiagnosed, it could be established that the toxicity was suggestive to be chronic.

Acute cases of mercury are generally where the patient knows there’s been an accident and the substance can be quickly identified and chelated. Metal testing will provide extremely high results, however chronic dental ingestion will be less likely to produce the same pattern of results as its long-term steady 24/7 ingestion will build and build up in the body over years. This is another mistake where the untrained clinician can dismiss the toxicity as low and not significant.

The patient kept a diary of the growing list of symptoms occurring, these developed from the oral cavity to all around the body. The NHS seemed incapable of ‘joining up the dots’ being set up in their old post-war format of specialised departments with no one health department looking at the entire body’s symptoms presented, ‘The Root Cause.’

Even the event causing these symptoms could be tracked to a specific day and where an accident was most likely to have occurred, an unknown knock to the face that triggered off the start of Electro-Oral galvanism which sped up dental ingestion of various metal vapours.

The diagnosis became clearer and recorded as chronic elemental/inorganic mercury, palladium, and nickel toxicity.

TOXIC HEALTH CO. UK. Liquid Mercury

The length of time the patient is suffering is very significant as mercury not only rests in one’s organs but has much time to deposit itself deep into the body’s tissues, the bones. Chelation becomes much harder to remove from the bones the longer time it has to rest if indeed, full chelation could ever be successful.

It means the dental patient is likely to have to chelate the toxicity for many years using natural products that help to remove and detoxify the body of traces of elemental mercury/ inorganic mercury, especially from the bones. Failure to do this would result in a quick deterioration of health, with ultimately a painful death.

In cases of severe elemental/inorganic chronic dental toxicity, such as mine, the patient has to continually chelate, trying to build up periods of time without using the chelating agents, not using chemical compounds, but those a patient can control, with an everyday diet tailored for managing the toxicity. (Posts 13-18 detail more about this).

Post diagnosis, into the sixth year, chelation is successful and still continues. It’s now managed as regular ‘routine maintenance’ rather than ‘essential maintenance’ care. It doesn’t mean that the toxins are removed, far from the case, but it means that the products used for chelation can be used in a more accommodating way with the chelation diet still in place.

There is no scientific way currently to measure the levels of mercury left in the body, deposited deep into bones. So one is likely to be tasked with carrying on routine maintenance for many years whilst the mercury is slowly removed from the bones and exits the body, whilst keeping the organs and tissues as healthy as possible.

Palladium chelation is thought to act like mercury, although the global medical profession admits they do not have enough research to know how to chelate palladium from a human.

A nickel-free diet was introduced once mercury chelation was well established and elemental mercury and other mixed metals were notably being removed from the mouth. Post 6 suggests suitable foods to avoid – and to eat – to be nickel free.

Online, there are articles where patients believe they have elemental/inorganic dental toxicity, often describing how they take a commercial chelation product and within a matter of weeks, the symptoms have disappeared and then re-chelate a year later.

This was impossible for me, I had to chelate again within 4 weeks, suggesting that I had extraordinarily high levels of toxicity deposited over a long period of time where the mercury especially had time to rest deep into the bones.

The comparison of my dental toxicity case is that I experienced the additional Oral-Electro galvanism which not only caused extraordinary voltage problems experienced in the body but helped to speed up the severe leaching of the amalgams, demonstrating the differences between the toxicity levels of recovery described online. More information is available ‘Finding The Root Cause’ page.

The chronic patient will take many, many years to chelate the mercury out of the body, if all, whereas the acute dental ingested patient may be far easier, intense, and the possibility of removal within months, particularly when the substances causing toxicity are known, the medical profession can act quickly, and use certain drugs to aid removal.

For example, a patient may know they have accidentally swallowed a loose amalgam and attend their local A&E who will be able to check by handheld metal detectors where it is currently located in the body, then X-ray the exact area where the amalgam may be located in the body, and act accordingly before too much harm can be caused.

Sadly, there are very few scientific ways to establish how fast the toxicity levels are reducing. Blood tests taken months after the initial diagnosis period really cannot tell you any more than how much mercury is found in the bloodstream, on that particular day, and whether it may be inorganic or organic with the help of further specialised tests.

Older medical reports suggest urine testing as the preferred method for testing chronic toxicity however it really doesn’t add more than suggesting that a small amount of mercury may be passing out of the toxic patient but results could actually be enhanced by the foods and products being eaten in the past 48 hours before testing and that the fitter the patient is, their organs will be responding more actively. The really sick and overburdened patients are likely to show little mercury being urinated as organs will be affected by the toxicity and work less effectively.

Accidents Causing Acute Dental Toxicity

You’ll find plenty of information about known accidents, accidental mercury spillages, both domestic and industrial, how this has to be cleaned up by professionals immediately, and what the contact can cause to humans causing acute toxicity symptoms, from country to country, explained globally. These are known accidents where the substance is identified and where action has to be taken immediately.

The problem the medical profession in the UK faces is the unknown accidents, for example, to the face, that can trigger toxicity problems, that cannot be seen by dentists in routine appointments, and how the NHS currently fails to manage these problems for years as patient health declines and how the accident then becomes chronic toxicity.

Public Health England

The UK government released a Public Health England document 2016 Compendium of Chemical Hazards (publishing.service.gov.uk) (Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own devolved parliament departments).

Public Health England compendium discusses chemical hazards and offers explanations for the various types of mercury compounds found in public use.

A document Inorganic Mercury/Elemental Mercury Toxicological overview was also released. Public Health England acknowledges the disease.

One would think that with Public Health England clearly acknowledging the very existence of dental inorganic mercury / elemental mercury toxicological, you could seek advice from the NHS, for a safe diagnosis, as this information suggests getting medical help, however, this isn’t the case hen engaging with the NHS.

You could be misdiagnosed or left undiagnosed if your condition is an unknown accident where A&Es, toxicity departments, and senior Oral & Maxillofacial consultants are not trained to recognise the symptoms being presented of severe chronic dental ingestion or Oral-Electro galvanism.

British Dental Association

It was later found that the British Dental Association does not provide their clinicians, both Dentists and General Medicine clinicians, including GPs, with training for chronic dental ingestion toxicity, as there is no formal or legal requirement in place.

This is confirmed by the failure of the British dental profession to agree to provide the British Government with the details to include in the British Medical Pharmacopoeia – a book containing the identification of compound medicines published by the British Government / the British Dental Association.

Despite many scientific and medical articles, written over decades, examining chronic dental ingestion chelation, the NHS continues to fail to provide those patients who have suffered from accidental chronic dental ingestion with the care they need, often misdiagnosing them, when they show symptoms similar to patients with MS, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease, or leaving them un-diagnosed.

Likewise, Oral-Electro galvanism is also omitted from the British Medical Pharmacopoeia.

The British Dental Association has alleged that Oral-Electro Galvanism doesn’t occur in patients, but fails to support their short statement. UK dental students are trained not to cause Oral-Electro galvanism, however, this doesn’t mean that the disease known for more than 180 years and identified in numerous medical papers and journals, frequently discussed, does not exist!

It does, and Public Health England & Wales very publicly confirms this. A knock to the face can cause Oral-Electro galvanism where the patient has mixed metal dental works in their mouth by way of implants and restorations and saliva mixing together.
