Toxin Poisoning

About Mercury – Nickel – Palladium – Gold – Toxin Poisoning


This page is a short overview of the metal toxins that were found to be in the body of extremely high toxicity values causing chronic dental ingestion over 7 years, with symptoms similar to Parkinson’s Disease, MS, Alzheimer’s and more.

The four main dental metals, mercury, nickel, palladium and gold used in the oral cavity were tested for with a number of other dental metals that had been used in the construction of the suspect restoration.

Mercury tested at the very highest levels with high levels of nickel and palladium and lesser, gold. 


Mercury (Hg) has been recognised as a toxic metal since prehistoric times, is 1 of the most deadly heavy metals on the planet and toxic to man.

Amalgam dental fillings which mistakenly get called by the public as ‘silver fillings’, contain 50% mercury or more. The remainder content is made up of silver, (22-32%) tin, (14%) copper (8%) aluminium and other metals.

Silver amalgam was first developed by a British chemist in 1819.

Mercury is a known poison, extremely volatile; the mercury escapes the amalgam as a vapour and is breathed into the body.

There are 2 primary forms of mercury. The type that penetrates the body by way of dental amalgam is ethyl mercury and rates the highest.

Mercury poisoning differs from the other forms of poisoning in that it causes significant neurological symptoms rather than digestive orders.

Mercury vapour is colourless, tasteless and odourless. If inhaled into the lungs can pass into your bloodstream for distribution to all body tissues. 

Mercury acts in a similar way to HIV 1, and shares similarities with cancer cells. Selenium is a vital protector.

Mercury has high levels of galvanic current densities when near other metals. This causes extensive migration of mercury to saliva, tooth roots, jaw gums and other parts of the body.

Mercury is 1000 times more toxic than lead.

There are first reports of galvanism published in the medical profession’s The Lancet, journal, dating as far back as, 16 October 1836.

There’s the old English phrase ‘as mad as a hatter,’ where the use of mercury compounds in the 19th-century millinery industry resulted in hatters suffering visible trembling fits.

There’s plenty of online information today about how mercury and metals cause ‘batteries in your mouth.’

Mercury poisoning causes a range of severe symptoms and puts the body at risk.

Mercury leaching out of the amalgam fillings make the human inoperative and can produce pain elsewhere in the body.

People who are suffering from poor health can prevent poisoning by making changes to their diet and environment by limiting their exposure. What cannot be prevented, however, are unknown dental accidents that lead to chronic mercury dental ingestion.

The World Health Organization, WHO, confirmed that mercury vapour and ions from amalgam dental fillings escape and have published documents clearly stating that the largest estimated average daily intake and retention of mercury and mercury compounds in the general population and not occupationally exposed, is from dental amalgams, not food or air.

The IAOMT  The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology released a powerful video before the UN meeting to discuss a worldwide ban on mercury usage, 2013. The IAOMT is the leader in science-based biological dentistry.

The above video outlines the worlds 10% dental amalgam mercury usage, with shockingly, 340 tons yearly of dental mercury emissions globally.

The Minamata Treaty, 2013, part of the UN Environmental Programme, was passed calling for a worldwide ban on mercury usage by 2030.

Some EU countries have already banned or restricted use of mercury being used in fillings, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Germany.


“Sweden is now leading the way in removing and protecting the environment from mercury, which is non-degradable,” the Minister for the Environment, Andreas Carlgren, said. “The ban is a strong signal to other countries and a Swedish contribution to EU and UN aims to reduce mercury use and emissions.”   January 2013.


NCBI, The US National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information. Their comprehensive website explains the problems with chelation techniques for acute and chronic mercury and other toxicity, with a detailed report by Margaret E. Sears, 18 April 2013. Chelation: Harnessing and Enhancing Heavy Metal Detoxification—A Review.

The report states – ‘It does admit that Clinical Advances (4.7) outlining chronic poisoning ‘presents a significant challenge to the health care provider.’

Margaret Sears outlines the common symptoms of chronic dental ingestion. She details information regarding sulphur foods, vitamins, particularly C, the use of coriander (cilantro), chlorella and algae, emphasising using foodstuffs for chelation other than pharmaceuticals.

Recent directives, 2018, by the European Commission has called for some restrictions in the use of mercury in dental fillings. Those restrictions acknowledge that it should not be used in pregnant mothers and young children.

However, The BDA, The British Dentistry Association have been working alongside the Council of European Dentists, CED, to avoid a full ban of dental amalgam, (aka mercury fillings).

Recently, better bio-compatible materials have been increasingly used by UK dentists. Approximately 50% of NHS dental fillings are now bio-compatible.

Patient visits to NHS A&E departments who experience known mercury and dental accidents, by swallowing implants or loose fillings, are treated by A&E clinicians in consultation with specialists.

BUT those patients who have unknown accidents, are misdiagnosed for years, or left undiagnosed. The NHS provides no assistance to those patients and can prolong their symptoms, worsening their health, by their failure of being trained to recognise the symptoms and a diagnosis protocol in place.

The NHS currently does not offer dental ingestion blood tests. They offer a limited range of metal testing, and where mercury testing is seemingly specific only to acute ingestion cases.

NHS Toxicologists admit they are not trained in chronic long term mercury dental ingestion cases, applying only generalised (and incorrect) acute mercury knowledge.

Mercury poisoning can be reversed, in some cases, but it is a long process and the patient has to be committed to continual detoxification.

Nickel (Ni) is a hard and ductile metal, a naturally-occurring metallic element with a silvery-white appearance. Small amounts of nickel can be found in plants, animals, and seawater.

It’s used in many thousands of products being widely used as the production of ferronickel for stainless steel. Notably used in cooking pans, and used in dentistry for spacers, brackets, fillings and crowns.

Nickel is a carcinogen, meaning that inhaling this substance is hazardous to your lungs and nasal canal. As a result, nickel is on the Hazardous Substance List in the US.

Nickel exposure affects the brain, and nervous system; frontal headaches, vertigo, insomnia, nausea, lethargy, and irritability.

Unidentified Eczema appeared on the body during late 2012. 

Identified as being nickel sensitive (eczema) due to chronic dental ingestion caused by the help of the speedy Oral-Electro galvanism, with visual signs appearing after three years of dental ingestion. Nickel had been used in the dentistry, such as pins and brackets.

By careful research, a number of foods were avoided (and still are) being high in nickel content, and replaced with foods that were known to aid a nickel-free diet. This way, eczema was gradually reduced coupled with the removal of some mixed metals in the mouth.

Palladium (Pd) is a silvery-white metal with a faceted cubic crystalline structure and is suggested to act like mercury, poorly absorbed by the body, is cytotoxic, killing and damaging human cells.

Palladium has high corrosion resistance and is used in low voltage electrical contacts; used in dentistry alloyed with silver, gold and copper.

It has high levels of galvanic current densities when near other metals, approximately ten times higher, than other high noble alloys. This causes extensive migration of palladium and mercury if located nearby in the oral cavity. It may cause skin, eye or respiratory tract irritation and skin sensitivity.

The global dental profession admits that there has not been sufficient testing to be able to provide a protocol for the safe removal of palladium ingestion, considering it may remove similar to mercury.

Palladium is a toxic heavy metal that is associated with damaging bone marrow, kidneys and the liver, and considered carcinogenic, so cancer is possible. 

Palladium can cause skin, eye or respiratory tract irritation and can cause skin sensations including allergic reactions. 

Used in all kinds of items around us including dentistry, jewellery, photography, and catalytic converters in motor cars.

Many of the symptoms caused by palladium are similar to mercury. It can be associated with osteoporosis and arthritis. 

Like mercury, it has high levels of galvanic current densities when near other metals, with the current densities of Pd alloys approximately 10 times higher than for high noble metals, causing extensive migration of palladium not just to the oral cavity but to saliva, roots, jaw and gums and to other parts of the body. 

A highly regarded and informative writer Louisa L Williams has written Radical Medicine providing considerable insight into these toxic metals, healthy and harmful foods, and food allergies.


Gold (Au) has a high positive charge, greatly augments the rate of corrosion of the negatively charged mercury in the amalgam filling and especially potentiates the release of this toxic metal into the body.

The galvanic currents reported at anywhere between several hundred millivolts to exceeding a thousand millivolts. Mine measured generally 0.5v (500 hundred millivolts) to more than 0.1v (1000 millivolts).

“Gold is more than just an expensive yellow metal. It has been exploited by physicians for decades to treat rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and a variety of other disorders. However, gold’s usefulness for many of these conditions has been limited by its toxicity, and – until recently – gold has been largely replaced by more effective and less toxic drugs.

According to the July 2011 issue of ‘Metallomics,’ it states “gold is enjoying a renaissance as research unveils new potential uses, including treatment of some cancers.” Stephen Christensen for
