Last week I wrote about the dumbest thing I’ve ever done to my health. It involved mercury fillings that I didn’t even know I had. Not my brightest move.
Once I saw them, I immediately called my holistic doctor and setup an appointment to get them removed. It’s important to select a holistic doctor that can properly remove the fillings safely and without allowing the mercury to further penetrate your system. Anyway, I knew he would require me to detox before the procedure so I took it upon myself to start even before I went to my initial consultation.
Why is this necessary?
Consider this: a single mercury filling can release 15 micrograms of mercury per day. The EPA has set a safe daily intake of mercury at 0.1 microgram per kilogram of body weight. This means that a person weighing 125 pounds (which is my weight) would be able to safely consume roughly 6 micrograms per day. I am consuming 30 micrograms, and have been since I was a child.
I have been consuming five times the safe daily allowance of mercury for fifteen years.
And if you have mercury fillings, you likely have been doing the same. I only have two fillings. Most people have upward of four. So even if you don’t have a plan to have your mercury fillings removed, it is incredibly important to take steps to detox. And if you do have a plan to have them removed, detoxing in the weeks leading up to your appointment is a good idea in general, but especially because there’s always a chance (and even the likelihood) that some amount of mercury is going to end up in your system during the removal process – no matter how careful and experienced the doctor is.
Symptoms of mercury toxicity include:
- mood swings
- neurological disorders
- muscle weakness
- decrease cognitive abilities
And if you’re pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant (which I do) it can severely affect the health of the baby. More severe cases of mercury poisoning can lead to endometriosis, kidney failure, high blood pressure and even cancer.

Chlorella is a single celled algae that grows in fresh water. It got its name due to its high chlorophyll content. Chlorella is one of the best detoxifiers on earth and can be used for heavy metal detoxification as well as the prevention of ulcers, cancer, Crohn’s disease, PMS, asthma, bad breath and hypertension. It’s also used to boost the immune system, increase the beneficial bacteria in the gut and improve digestion.
Chlorella is rich in antioxidants and binds to harmful and toxic substances which makes it such a potent detoxifier. The Jounral Of Toxicological Science found that chlorella effectively removed mercury from the tissue of mice,
Twenty-one days after administration, the organ Hg (mercury) levels in both BP (chlorella) groups tended to decrease compared to that of the control group. The reduction of Hg levels in the kidney and brain were significant, whereas that in the liver was not.
Don’t worry, we’ll get to the liver later.
Bentonite clay is negatively charged while toxins, pesticides and heavy metals are positively charged. This means that bentonite clay adsorbs these positive charges and flushes them from the body. It does not affect beneficial gut flora but in addition to binding to mercury, also removes yeast, viruses and other pathogens.
You can find that bentonite clay I use HERE.
Zeotrex aids the body in removing chemicals and heavy metals. It’s the only product that uses a combination of organic zeolites, herbs and minerals. It improves mood, energy and mental wellness. Heavy metal chelation can be expensive and time consuming. I love that this is an affordable and time saving alternative that provides the body with safe mercury removal while stimulating the intestinal tract.
You can get Zeotrex HERE.
Speaking of the intestinal tract, it’s incredibly important to make sure you are having regular bowel movements when detoxifying. No one wants to talk about this, but it’s the nature of my work and I’m not shy. You NEED this! Oxy-Powder ensures regular bowel movements which not only removes the toxins and heavy metals from your system but promotes clearer skin, more energy, mental focus and wellness and a strong, healthy immune system. From Perfect Supplements,
The average person by the age of 40 has an estimated 10 to 20 pounds of hard compacted fecal matter lodged in their intestinal tract. The human intestinal tract is 25 to 30 feet in length and if you cut it open and spread it out, the surface area is the size of a tennis court. For truly effective colon cleansing you must dissolve that solid compaction into a liquid or gas, using time-released oxygen (through an oxidation/reduction reaction). This is exactly what Oxy-Powder® does.
Oxy-Powder® contains a unique combination of ozone-oxygenated Magnesium and Citric Acid to help clear out deep-seated waste inside your intestinal system. The result is an intestinal environment with less opportunity for the accumulation of impurities, toxins, and harmful bacteria.
This means that if you’re 20 years-old, you have 5-10 pounds of fecal matter lodged in your intestinal tract. Get Oxy-Powder HERE and thank me later.
