This article addresses removing mercury from the blood stream, caused by mercury redistribution, in a person with a high body burden of mercury.
If you have been acutely mercury poisoned by a thermometer, or other form of poisoning from mercury in an elemental state, immediately call 911 and/or go to the emergency room of your nearest hospital.
Mercury in your blood stream can kill you. It can give you a heart attack or aneurysm. We never want mercury in the blood stream, but with a high body burden of mercury, sometimes we cannot avoid it. To get an idea of your mercury body burden, and exposures, please read:
DANGER: AMERICAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION
Use extreme caution with any industry, trade association, or governmental authority that claims mercury is NOT dangerous. When we go to the dentist, if we have amalgam fillings, and the dentist doesn’t use the utmost care, we can be acutely mercury poisoned. Drilling and/or removal of mercury fillings is extremely dangerous. Placing mercury amalgam fillings is dangerous.
This is a claim of a Wiki article on apicoectomy. A root end surgery, root resection, retrograde root canal treatment or root-end filling, is an endodontic surgical procedure whereby a tooth's root tip is removed, and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a biocompatible material.
What is their definition of a biocompatible material?
“Amalgam is widely used as a root-end filling, and meets many of the desired criteria. It is easy to handle, easy to see on radiographs, not sensitive to moisture, and stable at body temperature. Amalgam provides a relatively good seal if placed correctly. There have been some concerns about toxicity, as amalgam contains mercury as an ingredient, but there is very little evidence to support these.”
An apicoectomy may have placed mercury not only inside the bone (tooth), but next to our gum line and cardiovascular system, that is our blood stream.
ACUTE MERCURY POISONING DEFINED
I define acute mercury poisoning as mercury in the blood stream. I also take into account that there are differing levels of acute mercury poisoning. For example, the sulfur/thiols from eating a slice of onion may cause mercury redistribution in some people, and it can vary quite a bit from person to person. Variables affecting redistribution may be the current state of the individual’s well being, the storage sites of the mercury, and the availability of essential elements. Vitamin C in the blood stream will move mercury out of the blood stream and into the liver or kidneys. It does not chelate, ie, bind with the mercury, but it allows for faster filtering of the blood. Therefore, when addressing mercury toxicity, the importance of having a constantly high level of vitamin C cannot be underestimated. Vitamin C has a very short half-life. Since we are one of the only mammals that does not make vitamin C, we get our vitamin C by eating other animals and plants, or through supplementation.
VITAMIN C FOR LIFE
If we are not cautious about mercury redistribution, we may become acutely mercury poisoned by our own, sometimes well-intended actions. To better understand the difference between chronic and acute mercury poisoning, please read:
Vitamin C will move mercury out of our blood stream and into the liver or kidneys. If we take a high enough dose of vitamin C, the intestines will flush, and this will help carry mercury in our digestive tracts out of the body. To flush the intestines with Vitamin C, see:
PREPARING FOR MERCURY REDISTRIBUTION
Please be sure to have read how mercury redistributes in the body, and how we can easily move from a chronic state of mercury poisoning to an acute state of mercury poisoning.
Preparing for mercury redistribution, have at least two daily doses of Vitamin C everyday of your life. This is important for every human, whether they are mercury toxic or not.
VITAMIN C FOR LIFE
It is important to have the liver detoxed enough to be able to process mercury out of the blood stream. If the liver is toxic, backed up, clogged, overwhelmed, sluggish, and it doesn’t matter what we call it, but if the liver cannot take in mercury from the blood stream, we can easily move into a severe case of acute mercury poisoning.
Get your liver ready by doing multiple Epsom salt flushes.

DENTAL WORK WITH AMALGAM FILLINGS
Eighteen hours before your dentist visit, reduce your intake of vitamin C. The dentist may have difficulty anesthetizing nerves if the body has a high level of vitamin C.
Just before your visit, ingest charcoal as a binder for redistributed mercury. Understand that charcoal may be constipating, and by far, the most dangerous thing to happen before, during, or after mercury redistribution, would be constipation.
DO NOT CONSTIPATE AFTER A MERCURY REDISTRIBUTION
Therefore, before knowingly redistributing mercury, you should have experience using charcoal, while having your intestines and liver open enough to receive mercury, and expel it in bowel movements.
Before you leave the dentist, immediately take a high dose of your vitamin C. If available, rinse your mouth in the bathroom with your own charcoal. Keep in mind you may have some difficulty cleaning the sink after you spit out the charcoal, so you may want to use a cup, then pour it down the sink. I recommend you practice using the charcoal before you visit the dentist, so you will know how to address your blackened teeth, which will make you look like a drooling zombie. Have your toothbrush available.
When you arrive home, flush your body with vitamin C.
Keep your levels of vitamin C very high even after your flush. Keep the level high for as long as you deem it necessary to get yourself out of the danger zone of acute mercury poisoning. Mercury does not stay in the blood stream for more than about 72 hours.
CHARCOAL – ACTIVATED CARBON
I don’t recommend charcoal binders on a regular basis. It may affect the microbiome, and can cause constipation. However, some people have a very high body burden of mercury, and need a binder in order to ‘freeze’ the mercury in their intestines, preventing redistribution. Fats will also bind up mercury in the intestines and bile. I believe the body makes cholesterol in the veins to prevent mercury redistribution in a person that is constantly causing acute mercury poisonings within their own body.
“Activated carbon is used to treat poisonings and overdoses following oral ingestion. Tablets or capsules of activated carbon are used in many countries as an over-the-counter drug to treat diarrhea, indigestion, and flatulence.”
Dr Mercola on Charcoal
There are differing forms of charcoal. I am not attached to any one kind of it. A powdered coconut charcoal comes highly recommended.
VITAMIN E FOR MERCURY TOXICITY
This paper addresses the efficacy of using Vitamin C, with Vitamin E and Selenium. If you are doing the Wilking Protocol, you will already have good levels of these essentials.
This article addresses the use of Vitamin E for mercury toxicity in the Rat.
Vitamin E will raise the blood pressure. I do not recommend taking a single, high dose of vitamin E.

CHOOSING A DENTIST
Mercury dental filling removal is extremely dangerous. All metal dental fillings have mercury in them. If you decide to remove your fillings, have it done by a dentist that understands the dangers of mercury, and will work to protect you and their staff. The IAOMT is a great association of mercury aware dentists.
If you choose to use a dentist that is not an IAOMT member, be sure their protocol for removing fillings looks something like this.
