Are Dental Amalgams Filled with Mercury Making You Sick?

Are you one of the millions of people who have dental amalgam fillings without realizing the potential health risks?

Dental amalgams, also known as silver fillings, contain mercury, a toxic substance that can lead to autoimmune issues and chronic illness.

I know. Mind-blowing.

Let’s get straight to it.

My Journey with Metal Fillings

At the tender age of 7, I was playing on the monkey bars in El Paso, Texas, on a scorching summer day when I chipped my tooth. When I moved from Texas to Philly, I went to a dentist, and the doctor fixed my cracked tooth with an oversized dental filling that was mercury-based.

I spent over 20 years with low-dose exposure to mercury, and most of my adult life was embarrassed with my bottom tooth because the cap was oversized. It didn’t hit me that this metal filling was possibly causing me harm. 

Upon starting my holistic healing journey in 2018, I went to a natural dentist in Harlem, NY, and she told me that I should change my cavity caps from metal filling to ceramic. This was my first exposure to the learning about the potential toxicity of metallic dental fillings.

Fast forward to 2023, after experiencing a life-threatening lupus flare, I visited a functional medicine doctor, and she asked me, “Is your dental metal filling making you sick?”

That question definitely got my attention, and I started to do research.

What does science say about the harmful effects of Dental Amalgams?

Research has shown that mercury toxicity from dental amalgams can trigger autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, Multiple sclerosis, and more. Mercury exposure can also cause fatigue, brain fog, and other debilitating symptoms.

Despite the scientific evidence, many dentists and health organizations continue to claim that dental amalgams are safe. However, the truth is that mercury is a potent neurotoxin that can damage the brain, nervous system, and immune system.

Research all stated that “Significant improvement of health and above mentioned diseases (including Multiple Sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases) have been reported after amalgam removal”...

Not surprised because this is how I feel.

After suffering a life threatening lupus flare in 2023 and making wholehearted lifestyle changes, including removing dental amalgams filled with mercury, I feel so much better. Less pain, less fatigue, less lupus flares.

Not only are mercury-free dental fillings safer, but they also offer numerous benefits, including:

🌟 Improved oral health

🌟 Reduced risk of autoimmune disease

🌟 Enhanced overall wellbeing

Don't wait any longer to protect your health. Consult with a holistic dentist or healthcare provider to learn more about mercury-free dental fillings and how to detoxify your body from mercury toxicity.

It's terrible to know that these toxic materials come into contact with people through our healthcare providers. Great share
