Arsenic in Urine

A patient's Husband reported to me inquiring why, after his wife had 4 mercury amalgams removed, suddenly a urine analysis showed high levels of Arsenic. Her doctor recommended garlic as a chelating agent for the mercury given off during removal. She drinks only distilled water, eats only organic foods (no pesticides).

Unless the arsenic analysis was done before and after the amalgam removal, there is little reason to suspect release from the amalgams. If this was done, analysis of the amalgams would seem to be in order. The most common source of arsenic is tap water. This is one more reason one should never drink tap water. Commercial chicken also contains arsenic as it is fed to them to stimulate growth! Under any circumstances, elevated arsenic should be dealt with by chelation. Garlic and mustard oil have been shown to protect against chromosomal damage by arsenic, but not to reduce the level of arsenic. The only way to do that which I know of is EDTA chelation therapy although there is some evidence that oral DMSA is effective in lab animals.
