The Lowdown on Mercury and Health Part IV

In Part III, Yvonne Niedstadt discussed how to rid your body of mercury and now in Part IV we explore four additional methods: 

Thiols:  The thiol group including alpha lipoic acid has a high affinity for heavy metals.  Proteins containing cysteine will bind metals such as mercury, lead, and cadmium tightly.  Here is a very comprehensive article on heavy metal detox from

Sweat it out:  Saunas, especially the infrared type can help remove toxins including metals via perspiration.  Dr. Leonard Smith M.D. has seen mercury levels (as measured in the blood) drop by 400% in less than a month with TheraSauna.  And Dr. Sherry Roberts M.D. swears by Thermal Life.  Unlike regular saunas, infrared 9the light just below or infrared to red), heats through conversion without heating the air in between.  In other words, it heats the objects, not the air in the room.  This radiant energy heats the body directly and provides a purifying sweat at much lower temperatures (110F-130F versus 180F-235F).

Try Homeopathics:  Try NDF Nanocolliodal Detox Factors.  Independent lab results showed elimination of toxic metals, including a 56% reduction in mercury in six weeks.  Dr. Gabriel Cousins MD reports dramatic clinical results.  Produced by BioRay, Inc.

Check out Chelation Therapy:  Chelate is a Greek word to bind with protein.  Although considered controversial, chelators EDTA and DmPS have been used for many years for binding and pulling toxic metals out of the bloodstream including mercury and lead.  The main caution is in those with damaged kidneys.  Having said that, the American Journal of Kidney Disease 2002 Jul: 40 (1); 51-8 published an article entitled “Lead mobilization during ca EDTA-chelation therapy in the treatment of chronic lead poisoning.”  So, even kidney specialists recognize the value of this treatment when treating lead poisoning.  It is just administered more slowly in those with kidney woes.  For a referral to physicians who use Chelation therapy, contact the American College of Advancement of Medicine.
