A lot of people have mercury or lead toxicity in their bodies, but they have no idea. This blog post is also for you, as it will create awareness around this health issue.
I’m not a doctor. This is purely based on my own experience.

One year ago, Tony Robbins, who many of you know is a big mentor of mine, publically shared that he was diagnosed with mercury toxicity. His story inspired me to get tested as well.
A few months ago I did an EDTA/DMPS chelating agent test. This process involved putting an IV into my vein, and the chelating agent went into my bloodstream, pulling out minerals and toxic metals that I had in my tissues.
I then collected my urine for 12-24 hours and sent it a lab for analysis, which then determined the levels of metals that were in my body.
I shared my heavy metal toxicity results online, because I wanted to spread awareness of the harmful effects of mercury toxicity. I was shocked by what I found. Immediately, I took action.
The question is, “How did I get heavy metal toxicity?” There are multiple reasons why this can happen. Sometimes you can get this because of genetics, fish, lead-based paints or construction sites, or from the mercury that is found in cavity fillings, otherwise known as, amalgam.
If you decide to remove your mercury amalgam fillings, it is so important that you follow a safe protocol. Do your research and find a dentist that is trained in this procedure. I recommend that you read Andy Cutler’s book, Amalgam Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment : What You Can Do to Get Better, How Your Doctor Can Help, in order to learn more about the effects of amalgam on the body.
My naturopath recommended that I do more IV chelation therapy, but I wanted to do more research, because I read that there can be negative side effects with this form of therapy.
I found a website called, DMPS Backfire, where people share information regarding DMPS, and the adverse effects that the drug has on the physiology of the body. The information was shocking, but informative, especially for those who have been advised by their doctors to do IV chelation therapy.
After some more research, I came across a man named, Andy Cutler, who teaches a safe protocol of how to detox mercury from the body. Andy Cutler created a Facebook group, comprised of a community support group of people who are detoxing from mercury or lead toxicity, which I found to be super helpful.
Based on what I learned from Andy Cutler's protocol, I want to share with you the safest and most natural way of how to detox mercury from the body.
Below is a description of the detox process that I am currently going through. This is how to detox mercury from the body:
I take ALA, in conjunction with DMSA or DNPS, in an oral form. The ALA acts by pulling the metals out of your tissue. I recommend starting at a low dose in order to see how your body reacts. This will determine how your body is detoxing.
This process can take anywhere between 3 days to 3 weeks. Start with 12.5 milligrams of Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), which is a small amount. Most capsules of ALA are 100-milligrams, so you will need to divide the dose.
Do this every 3 hours, including while you sleep. You need to follow this protocol religiously and exactly as outlined in the protocol.
However long it takes for you to finish one round of capsules, take that same amount of time, off. Then, do another round, at a higher dose, and keep upping it. Keep in mind that the goal is not to be aggressive with this detox process. Doing so can be dangerous.
I recommend sweating while you are detoxing, as this is a great way to release the toxins from your body. A solid sauna or steam is a great idea.
If you want to learn more about how to diagnose mercury toxicity and safely remove toxic metals from your body, I highly recommend that you read David Hammond's book, Mercury Poisoning: The Undiagnosed Epidemic: Source of Mercury and How To Detox.
It can take 1-2 years to detox mercury out of your body, and 4+ years if you have severe levels of it in your body. It’s a long-term journey, but what other option do you have? It’s a sacrifice, but if it means that you will be happier and healthier in the future, it’s worth it.
Taking care of my health is my top priority. I hope this information on how to detox mercury from the body empowers you to be proactive with your health, and take the necessary steps in order to rid you body of these harmful toxic metals.
