Greek mythology regarded mercury as the fleet-footed messenger of the gods. A patron of translators and interpreters and the cleverest of the Olympians. He ruled over wealth, good fortune, commerce, fertility…and thievery. He bought the souls of the dead to the underworld, and was honoured as a god of sleep.
Science regards mercury as a powerful poison. It has the ability to rob the body of health and leads to neurological dysfunction. Published research has shown that mercury, even in small amounts, is more toxic than lead, arsenic and cadmium.
Some of the most common signs and symptoms of mercury exposure include:
• Fits of anger
• Lack of energy
• Low self-esteem
• Decline of intellect
• Low self-control
Although a natural component of the earth's crust, mercury does not have a role in the human body. Yet humans are constantly exposed to mercury, primarily through large fish, thimerosol (a preservative added to vaccinations and many other pharmaceuticals) and amalgam or mercury-based dental fillings. The largest exposure to mercury among adults comes from a source that is completely avoidable, amalgam fillings, primarily in the form of vapor of metallic, elemental mercury. Elemental mercury forms a monatomic gas that is highly volatile and readily inhaled according to research.
Most individuals can protect themselves against mercury by avoiding unnecessary exposure and following a protocol designed to help the client get rid of mercury.
Do the following:
• See a specialist in mercury removal and be put on the protocol.
• Use only composite dental fillings not amalgam.
• Avoid vaccines and pharmaceuticals that may contain thimerosal.
• Eat fish occasionally if you are healthy and eat a diet rich in animal protein and fat.
• Remove amalgam fillings before conception and it is imperative that none be put in place during pregnancy.
• Avoid tuna, swordfish and similar species of fish, if pregnant or lactating.
Mercury is the most toxic of the heavy metals. So, if we are to protect our own health as well as that of future generations, it's imperative that we and the scientificcommunity pass legislation soon to stop the use of mercury.
