general homeopathic principles for detoxification from specific substance; mercury detoxification


In my country (I guess, in many 3rd world countries) it was standard practice in dental offices to use mercury amalgams, until just a few (10? 5?) years ago. Now it is still common practice.

So I come accross a general and a particular question...

General one: can we use diluted solutions of a substance to "detoxify" from it? If so, does it only relieve the symptoms or does it actually help the body to expel/destroy the substance? - I guess that the answer depends on the substance...

Particular one: what about mercury? To my knowledge, mercury tends to accumulate in the body, mostly in the nervous system, and can't be expeled nor destroyed by the body's own mechanisms. Maybe this is an overstatement, of course.

My advice for people is to get their mercury amalgams replaced by other kind of amalgam; this should be done by an experienced dentist, because the removal proccess exposes the body to a lot of mercury. But - what to do about the mercury that has already been absorbed?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
There are whole schools of thought on detox through homeopathy. This is especially popular in Europe. As always the best way to do things is not by "diagnosis" but by your symptoms.

What health problems do you have? Auto-immune, low vitality, etc. You would have to give details.

The safest way to let your body detox is to adopt a one day a week juice/fruit fast. This is safer than a pure water fast. Your body will detox slowly as needed and toxins released will not overwhelm your system. Too fast a detox can cause very serious problems. There are detox teas you can use cautiously.

I personally know of two cases in which too strenuous a detox caused insanity.

As to homeopathy, if you want to just try a general detox take first Nux vomica 200C under the tongue at BEDTIME only once. Ten days later take Sulphur 30C in the morning, two tablets under the tongue once a week for a month. This will clear a lot from your system.

As for the use of the remedies for Mercury for dental detox. It all depends on whether your symptoms match the remedy.

Thanks for the homepathic suggestions for detoxification! - that is very useful - I'll try them, indenpendently of the mercury issue - I'm familiar with detox programs and have been on a 2-weeks water fast with no significant problem and good improvement- the only bad thing was being really dizzy when I lifted my center of gravity too suddenly - this was accompained by having my sight be substituted by a very-dark-yellow undefined "blob" - I guess that is very common! - I'd take 2 or 3 minutes to slowly get up from bed after sleeping, by sitting, staying, and standing... Taking a little bit of common salt NaCl helped with that. The fast was a great experience!

About mercury/symptoms: this thread is somewhat cross-posted with a thread on "chronic infection on hair follicle on lower legs", in which I suggest that maybe Merc Sol could be a good remedy for me - that suggestion was not based on any consideration of mercury amalgams, but purely based on symptoms. The idea of the amalgam *followed* the choice of the remedy ;)

BTW, are you familiar with the results on caloric restriction and life extension - it's a pretty hot research area in biology now and a lot can be found on the web about it. Look for "life extension" and "caloric restriction"

The basic fact is that any mouse/rat/worm/etc that is placed on a diet of 60% - or even less - of the amount of calories it would eat ad libitum will have very delayed aging and will live up to 150% of the maximum lifespan of mice fed ad libitum - as long as proper nutrition (minerals, vitamins, etc) is ensured.

So - if mice fast every other day, they do not "pig out" on days when they eat - but rats do, and end up eating as many calories as they would when eating every day. And - comparison of rats fed every other day and rats on caloric restriction showed no difference nor their maximum nor average lifespan, nor on many of the "age biomarkers". It's a pretty strong result on fasting!

Crude mercury enters into loose combination with cells and create problems. The issues that are generally seen in this kind of poisoning are 1. Salivation. 2. Excessive sensitivity to changes in temperature. They can't tolerate heat or cold.
Here you find out whether the patient is sensitive to heat or cold. If heat antidote is Kali Iod . If cold Hepar Sulph.
For misuse of homeopathic potency Nux vomica, sulphur or Hepar Sulph are used.
For mercury + Syphillis the list of antidotes is long and depends upon symptoms.
Nux vomica is a general antidote of almost all allopathic and homeopathic medicines. If you are not sure what to use try nux vomica.
