Detoxing the Mercury out of Your Body
Here are a couple of videos on the toxicity of mercury by Doctor Mark Hyman MD. Doctor Hyman has come to be a leading integrational autism investigator with his clinical autism experience of the gut-brain connection..
He recommends having a professional help you with heavy metal detoxification. Always a good idea but IMO if this is not possible there is much you can do.
First you MUST become aware of the operation of the detoxification process and especially how it is a TWO STEP process. You must make sure you do not let the first step get ahead of the second step. This will cause toxins to build up in your body. This is where most of the serious problems which can occur during detoxification come from.
There are many safe ways to cause heavy metals to exit your body.
Application of Doctor Haley’s Mercury Findings to Remove Mercury
Glutathione is the ONLY way to remove mercury from your body
Test for GSH levels
Your goal is to replete low GSH to normal levels and above
Both for prevention and treatment of autism we must MAXIMIZE GSH
Whey helps increase GSH
High ORAC antioxidants, spices, food and supplements helps increase available GSH
Anything you can do to take other responsibilities from GSH will free GSH to transport mercury out of body
Alpha Lipoic Acid helps increase available GSH
To battle mercury in the mitochondria SOD helps free up GSH
Doctor Haley tells us the only way that mercury is removed from our bodies is that two molecules of glutathione bind an atom of mercury and flush it into the body fluid where it is removed into the urine by the kidneys. Therefore we must maximize the glutathione available to escort the mercury out of our bodies. We can do this by taking the maximum of antioxidants to take some of the load off glutathione' antioxidant responsibilities and increasing our availibility of glutathione to be applied to mercury.
"Activated charcoal is the single best supplement for enhancing detoxification. You can take charcoal to wipe out decades of toxic heavy metals that may have been building up in your body. Harmful metals like arsenic, copper, mercury, and lead. .... Take 20-30 grams a day of powdered activated charcoal (in divided doses) mixed with water over a period of 1-2 weeks.” Doctor Al Sears MD, Note you want to start low IMO say a gram or two and work up
