Mercury detoxification protocol

What causes our body to become toxic? The main cause lies within our body’s failing detoxification process.

The increasing amount of toxins and chemical concoctions in contaminated food, air and water, mercury amalgam fillings has been passed on through the generations, especially from mother to foetus during pregnancy.

Gross dehydration, lack of exercise, smoking habits, drinking habits and our sedentary stressful lives cause oxidative stress and underlie degenerative disease.

What do we need to do to fix it?

Our being is an open system that is continuously on the go. We function on many levels and can be influenced at all and every one. Our emotions, physical wellbeing, the way we feel supported, the way we feed our selves, how often we exercise are just a few of the aspects that can become out of balance and compromise the effectiveness of our self regulation body functions.

A detoxification plan therefore can only be prescribed on an individual basis and needs a holistic approach.

However below you will find some good sensible approaches that will help you prepare for, help during and after a detoxification process.

1. Assess your levels of commitment.

Detoxification can only be successful when the body and mind are in an adequate balance. Stress at home/work, lack of sleep, poor diet, smoking habits, emotional burn-out or grief, sitting in and Electro magnetic Polluted area (frequent use of computers, mobile phones, or just living in a large city) can all seriously harm the detoxification process . It is therefore strongly advised to fully assess when the best time is for a detoxification programme to commence.

The more one understands of one’s own health status, and the subject of detoxification, the better choices one can make. It is strongly advised to self study the subject. Other useful web sites;

2. Commit to healthier balanced lifestyle choices

Good diet, daily intake of 8-10 glasses of Kangan water or pure water enhanced with Electrolyte, regular exercise, stop smoking, sunlight, fresh air, fun, relaxation and contribution are part of achieving good health.

3. Removal all contaminants from your direct environment and diet to avoid decontamination.

Check your house for environmental pollutants like paints, household cleaning chemicals and store them away from your living space. Assess the house for damp and moulds, dust mites etc. Make sure your house is well ventilated and when living in a polluted area use air purification systems routinely. Protect the house from electromagnetic pollution. The bedroom needs to be free from electrical equipment and transformers, unplug TV, clock radio’s, tea making facilities and mobile phone chargers before going to sleep. ( see: Sleeping in a healthy environment advise sheet).

4. Diet

Food allergies play a major role in keeping the body out of stress. It is strongly advised to find a qualified practitioner to carry out food allergy/ compatibility test. There are many different techniques, books and over the counter tests that can help you find out the basic foods to avoid.

Often dairy and wheat allergies cause a heightened inflammatory response which impairs the body’s digestive and elimination function. Avoid all sugar and milk, limit all processed foods and most grains, especially wheat. Read food labels and avoid food colourings, preservatives, MSG, aspartame an other artificial sugars.

Eliminate the use of hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats and substitute with coconut oil for frying and cooking or olive oil. All oils will oxygenate by heat and sunlight. Oils that are stored in clear bottles need to be avoided as they contain toxic fats.

Protein plays an important role in the provision of sulphur bearing amino acids, which greatly facilitate detoxification.

Do NOT attempt to fast during mercury detoxification. If you are a vegetarian you will be at HIGH risk for complications from detoxification unless you have to eat a large amount of protein.

Goats Whey protein can be used as a supplement as it is high in glutathione and branched chain amino acids. Two large tablespoons are used per drink and that can be taken once a day and twice a day for the week prior to amalgam removal.

Autistic children can't use this product as it contains casein. They can use pure branched chain amino acids. You can start with one capsule twice daily and mix with food.

5. Beneficial Flora / unbeneficial Flora

The overload of refined sugars and the chemicals that lace our processed foods and drinks cause a real battle in our digestive system. Beneficial flora can be lost through stress, too many too hot or to cold drinks, caffeine, medication and fizzy drinks. Unbeneficial flora can overtake and start to colonize our digestive tract. Candida fungi can overgrow and parasites can persistently reside in the digestive lumen.

The level of gut dysbiosis can be assessed by a qualified practitioner. When suffering Candidiasis, much attention needs to be taken to the consumption of sugar in any form including fruits. (see Candida diet)

It will therefore be important to actively encourage a better gastrointestinal tracts (G.I.T) environment and supplement the diet with beneficial bacteria on a continual basis.

Take one quarter to one half teaspoon once a day of a high potency high quality strains. It is vital to have an optimized bowel flora for detoxification.

6. Maintain two to three bowel movements per day

Once every other day may be the norm, but is far from healthy. The ideal functioning of the gut would be to have the next meal push out the previous. Hurried meals on the go and a time pushed work schedule does not allow complete and appropriate digestion to take place. Give yourself time.

Increase the amount of fibre in your diet, both soluble and insoluble fibre are needed to help you increase your bowel function. Insoluble fibres have a great capacity to absorb toxins and carry them through the bowel.

If you are not having two to three bowel movements make certain that your thyroid status has been checked. It is very common for mercury to affect the thyroid. If your thyroid function is fine then you should add some magnesium.

If you are on long-term magnesium it is important to take some calcium with it or after awhile you will develop an imbalance in your calcium magnesium ratio which could result in severe cramping.

Soak 1-2 table spoons of flax and linseeds overnight in some red grape juice or water and consume as a jelly for breakfast. This will facilitate intestinal movement and also contribute some healthy essential fatty acids.

7. Reduce the body burden of toxins from the connective tissue with Chlorella

Chlorella is an important part of the detoxification program, as approximately 90% of the mercury in our bodies is eliminated through the stool. Chlorella is an algae and, unlike Protchitosan, and has developed receptor fields to most environmental toxins to which it binds irreversibly, in addition it has high levels of chlorophyll and other nutrients which can be used for nourishment.

The chlorella powder is the most cost effective approach but some people will prefer the tablets or capsules for convenience. A simple way to dissolve the powder is to place it in a container with a lid partially filled with water. Then tighten the lid and shake to dissolve and drink the solution.

Caution: About 30% of people can't tolerate chlorella. This may be due to lack of function of the enzyme cellulase. If you are unable to tolerate this it would be wise to consider adding an enzyme with cellulase in it to help digest the chlorella.

Dose: One can start out with a one quarter of a teaspoon of the powder (one 500 mg tablet) once a day initially to confirm that there is no hypersensitivity present. Work up slowly over one to two weeks to a dose of one teaspoon (ten tablets or capsules) per day. Once you tolerate this dose you are able to use it to bind the mercury. Use this dose starting two days prior to your chelation and for one day afterwards. The chlorella will thoroughly coat your intestine and bind like a sponge to any mercury that liberates into the gut.

The above dose is based on a 150 pound adult. If you are using the program for children reduce the dose proportionately. (So a 30 pound child would have have 30/150 or 1/5 (20%) of the dose).

Caution: If at any time one develops nausea or starts "burping up" the chlorella taste then the chlorella should be stopped immediately as a food sensitivity is developing which will only worsen if you continue taking it. If this happens you should switch to ProChitosan This binds similarly to mercury. Its dose is dependent on your bowel movements.

If you have one bowel movement a day or less you should start two days prior to the detoxification protocol. If you have two or more bowel movement you can start 24 hours prior to the detoxification. Stay on it for 24 hours afterwards. So you will be on it either two or three days. The dose is two capsules three times a day. Be sure to drink it with plenty of water and increase magnesium if constipation develops.

8. Start Garlic or MSM

It would be wise to start on garlic regularly to enhance sulphur stores. Use the food, rather than the supplement garlic. Try to get in three cloves per day, but decrease the dose if your odour becomes socially offensive. Freeze dried Garlic capsules (F.D.G.) restore both sulphur stores. F.D.G.’s active ingredient Allium is converted in the stomach(after a full meal)into Allicin which acts as a broad spectrum antibiotic, without killing of beneficial flora.

Again, as indicated in the chlorella section above, children will have proportionately lower doses.

MSM is a form of sulphur which will help your body to remove the mercury. The initial dose is one capsule twice a day. Increase by one capsule a day until you are at three capsules twice a day. If you have root canals and are chronically sick you may want to increase to five capsules three times a day.

9. Start Cilantro

Cilantro will help mobilize mercury out of the tissue so the Chlorella can attach to it and allow it to be excreted from the body. It is a strong chelator and it must be taken at least 30 minutes after a dose of Chlorella.

The dose is one dropper applied on the wrists and rubbed in twice a day for the two weeks preceding the detoxofication protocol. If a healing crisis develop take more chlorella and drink at least 4 glasses of water until the healing crisis is subsided. The tincture is also particularly useful for any joint pain and could be rubbed on the joint that is hurting as an alternative.

You can also augment the tincture with using the herb. It is not as potent, but certainly will add to the program. However, like chlorella, many people are sensitive to oral cilantro. So, if you develop any nausea or discomfort after eating cilantro do not use it orally.

10. Mineral Replacement

It is important to have a generally healthy mineral base. The body works better with toxic metals than no metals at all. Enzymes have certain binding sites that require a metal for them to perform their function as a catalyst. When you are deficient in magnesium, sodium, zinc and other minerals, the body does not let go of the toxic metals very easily.

Selenium and zinc are particularly important trace mineral in mercury detoxification and should be used for most people.

Generally the citrate form of minerals works quite nicely unless one has a low blood phosphorous level. It is important not to take copper or iron though unless a clinician has examined a hair analysis and or blood work and recommended these minerals.

Hydrochloric Acid:

If you do not have a sufficient amount of hydrochloric acid secreted by your stomach then it will be very difficult to ionize mineral supplements to absorb them properly. There is a hydrochloric acid reflex present on the lowest rib approximately one inch lateral to the midline. If this area on the rib is tender to palpation there is a strong likelihood the person is deficient in hydrochloric acid and would benefit from supplementation.

This is especially common in individuals over 50 years old, and also in individuals with food allergies. One to six capsules or more of Betaine hydrochloride is generally taken with the first bite of every meal for proper digestive support. The Betaine can be discontinued once the reflex point in non-tender to deep palpation.

Monitoring Your Mineral Dosing

It will be very important to monitor your mineral levels during the detoxification program. This should be done initially and at least every 6-12 weeks. Our Centre recommend a Taste test developed by Dr Kane and is available through our centre or from Nutri-link, Newton Abbott , Devon, UK

11. Digestion and Gall Bladder Support for Autism

Liver and gallbladder congestion are major issues in states of toxicity. To insure that your gallbladder bile flow is functional add magnesium taurate or taurine, butyric acid.

The dose of the Butyrex initially is 1/8-1/4 of capsule. Gradually increase the dose to 5 capsules 3 times daily. The Butyrex has a offensive odour which is lessened by keeping it in the freezer. Additionally inserting the powder in applesauce, raw honey or elderberry cough syrup may improve compliance.

Juice Plus capsules contain digestive enzymes (containing lipase) and Cholecystokinin (CCK) (stimulates contraction of the gall bladder). These can be used one hour after meals containing fat. CCK is taken after dinner (high fat meal)

Your ability to clear toxins will be impaired if you do not have proper fats to support digestive function. Your diet should contain adequate fat from unprocessed pure oils.

OR fats naturally found in foods:

12. Antioxidants

Juiceplus Capsules are mother natures antioxidants and phyto-nutrients in a convenient highly bio-available supplement. Independent research shows its proven absorption and function. Regular prolonged use of the supplement dramatically raises antioxidant levels in both blood and saliva, reduces homocysteine (marker for cardiovascular disease) and aids in the protection against oxidative stress and free radical attack. If you are exercising aggressively you can take Juiceplus Complete prior to exercising.

For information and ordering of Juiceplus products please ask our practitioners or our Juiceplus website:

13. Start Monthly practitioner monitored detoxification.

You should not have Chelators if you still have amalgam fillings. If they have been removed the protocol can be started on a monthly basis. Collection of the urine is then done to analyze how much mercury is being excreted.

Regular B.T.M. Saliva and Urine panels may be necessary to evaluate the body’s health status and pH.

14. When is it safe to commence dental mercury amalgam removal.

The total heavy metal burden can not be measured other then by biopsy. Blood /urine or hair analyses offer only partial insight into the burden as heavy metals are lipophylic and adhere to the fatty tissues of the main organs, including the brain, breasts and nervous tissues.

Several energetic modalities have developed specific testing procedures to measure where and which organs are most affected. The Ish Sko Centre uses Autonomic Response Testing which is developed by Dr D Klinghardt (

A.R.T offer good insight in what blocks the proper healing mechanisms in the body and offers targeted solutions to remove stored toxins from overloaded organs and organ systems. This is most important prior to any dental mercury amalgam restorations are removed.

15. Far infra red Sauna’s

The skin is a vast organ and a good pathway through which to detoxify. The use of Far Infrared Sauna’s on a regular basis has good benefits upon your general health. Infra red waves penetrate the body deeply and activate the adipose tissues to sweat out toxins.
