CNS disorder follow-up
Posted by: Mike
Date: October 25, 2004 3:48 PM

My wife has had the following symptoms since January: poor balance, ringing in the ears, short-term memory loss, some coordination difficulties, easily fatigued, vision disturbances, impatience and hostility, moodiness, irritability and short temper, occasional confusion, easily excitable, fibromyalgia, burning sensations on different parts of the body, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, headaches, tremors - especially in the hands, occasional vertigo, and insomnia.

She has 10 fillings, with 6 being on the upper teeth, most of which are root canals.

I think she has amalgam poisoning, and I want this documented by a lab test - specifically a DMPS urine test in three days (28 Oct.).

Two questions:

Do her symptoms lead you to suspect mercury poisoning?

Is it OK to immediately start her on oral NAC 600/Glutathione 100 one per day, plus Selenium 200 mcg, to provide some protection before amalgam is removed?

Is it OK to do the DMPS test now to confirm the cause of her problems, so we know where to start?

Her amalgam removal will begin 1 Nov. and another appointment on 3 Nov. She should have all fillings/crowns out by end of November.

Index of suspicion in such a case is, of course, high. It would be safe to start her on that program, but not very effective. What such a person really should have is an IV of vit. C and L-glutathione immediately after the dental procedure while the blood mercury level is still high and before the mercury has had time to be methylated in the liver and deposited in the brain and other lipid areas of her body. For that you need a doctor as well as a dentist. The DMPS Challenge Test results are not useful until 5 days after the last amalgam is removed. Until then you would be measuring the fact that she has amalgam or the fact that it was just drilled out and the released metals are still stirred up. It would have no quantitative relationship to the body burden of mercury.
