The axiom ?Do it right the first time? best describes the acute detoxification protocol for mercury amalgam fillings. When patients utilize strong detoxification measures acutely, that is, the day of, and four days after the dental drilling of their mercury fillings, their chances of effective and most complete detoxification of this heavy metal are greatly enhanced. In contrast to this clear-cut ?hitting fire with fire? acute protocol, chronic detoxification of mercury toxicity is significantly more challenging. Individuals who do not adequately detoxify when their amalgams are removed are often plagued with the ?smoldering embers? of chronic mercury toxicity for years afterwards. When well-meaning doctors and practitioners attempt to use strong detoxification protocols on this population of patients, the smoldering embers of chronic mercury poisoning can be reignited and trigger serious symptoms. These so-called ?healing reactions? are rarely healing at all, but inflaming and ultimately depleting to the body. The better choice in the case of chronic mercury intoxication is to employ gentler methods that strengthen the organs of detoxification to do their job more efficiently. In this way stored heavy metals can be released in a manner consistent with the body?s own inherent metabolic pace and capacities. Dr. Williams will describe both of these approaches, and outline the most important treatments appropriate for both acute and chronic detoxification of this most toxic heavy metal.
