Most people today don’t think about heavy metal contamination. It’s
been debunked by our government and society so it’s typically not on
your radar! However, with the high prevalence of illness and disease
today, metal toxicity is something we should all be concerned about!

Introduction

In the last 5 years, I’ve developed some medical problems that have been very
perplexing One of them is an autoimmune disorder, which caught me off guard
because I’ve been relatively healthy for over 50 years! I couldn’t help thinking that
something was missing from my diet. I’ve taken many vitamin supplements over the
years but they didn’t prevent me from getting sick. I now believe that my
autoimmune disorder is directly linked to high mercury levels. Why?

Someone recently contacted me through my site. He wrote to me about mercury


toxicity and using the iodine protocol. Since iodine hasn’t been used in years, I
wondered if it could be the missing link? You can believe that my eyes almost
popped out of my head as I was reading his email! Iodine deficiency is linked to
many disorders and may be associated with adrenal or thyroid problems, which
causes autoimmunity.

There’s a good possibility that ‘preventative’ childhood immunizations (that contain


mercury) may have played a large role in screwing up your system too if you got
them. It’s well documented that the mercury in childhood immunizations are linked
to the high rate of autism today!

Of course, I had all my childhood immunizations and have 5 amalgams and 3


crowns that contain mercury amalgam. I’ve also had flu vaccines and other
injections throughout my life that contained mercury. Who knows how much
mercury I actually have in my body! It’s chilling to think about! The fillings have
been there a very long time but the crowns were done later after my son was born.
(If you unsure if your crowns were attached using mercury amalgam, look to see if
the area below the crown is dark colored. If so, your dentist used mercury to attach
your crowns too!)

I just started taking iodine this week but before that I increased my vitamin D levels
because taking iodine can reduce them. I also started salt pushing to help relieve
symptoms of bromism. This may sound confusing now but after reading this ebook,
I hope you’ll understand how mercury and the symptoms overlap and relate.

Recovery may take a year or longer though so please don’t expect overnight
miracles. The point is however, that we now have REAL HELP! I hope this method
works for everyone!

I also discovered a few years ago that iodine deficiency could cause a defect in fetal
brain development. My son was born with mental disabilities we didn’t know about
until he reached toddler age. Still, knowing that I may have been able to prevent his
disabilities just by taking iodine when I was pregnant weighs heavy on my heart. I
sure hope this ebook will help save future generations from the heartache I feel!

Who Needs Metal Chelation?

Metal chelation is appropriate for anyone who has been exposed to mercury or
other heavy metals. People who are at most risk for mercury exposure: have
amalgams, root canals or other cavitations; work in a dentist office; have had
childhood immunizations, flu vaccines or any injection that contained Thimerosal, a
mercury-containing organic compound. (Since the 1930s, Thimerosal has been
widely used as a preservative in a number of biological and drug products,
including many vaccines.)

Mercury Exposure

The WHO (World Health Organization) has finally decided to ban mercury, which
speaks volume, but for most people reading this, metal exposure has already
occurred. Since many metals are considered to be dangerous to the human body,
there is a much higher prevalence and incidence of mercury exposure today than at
any time before. For that reason, mercury exposure poses a clear and definite health
risk.

Mercury is a metal that occurs naturally in small amounts in the environment.


Because it remains liquid at room temperature, it is used in many consumer
products. Mercury is used in barometers, blood pressure instruments,
thermometers, and other pressure-sensing instruments. Batteries containing
mercury are used in some small electronic devices. Small amounts of mercury can
be found in fluorescent and energy saving light bulbs. Mercury also is used in
outdoor lighting, motion picture projection, and the making of some medications.

What comes to mind when you think about mercury exposure? Fish! Although
mercury exposure is directly related to consuming fish that are contaminated, the
instance of exposure is not that great as compared to other forms of exposure.

What’s Toxic?
Many immunizations, injections and vaccines contain mercury, and amalgams,
crowns, or cavitations that are seated next to your brain are the most toxic. In these
forms, mercury exposure is extremely HIGH.

Many people worldwide have mercury fillings or cavitations. Mercury fillings,


(silver fillings or amalgams) are the most common fillings around the globe. They
are composed of 45 - 52 percent mercury, 25 percent silver, and the remaining
percent is a mixture of copper, zinc and tin.

4
Dental Filling Facts
• Scientific research has demonstrated that even in small amounts, mercury can
damage the brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, thyroid gland, pituitary gland,
adrenal gland, cells, enzymes and hormones. It also impairs and suppresses your
immunity.

• Mercury doesn’t just stay in your mouth. It is continually released from fillings
in the form of mercury vapor and tiny abraded particles. These mercury vapors
can increase as much as 15 percent by chewing food or gum, brushing your
teeth, or drinking hot liquids. The WHO (World Health Organization) recently
concluded that the daily intake of mercury from amalgams far exceeds the
combined daily intake of mercury derived from the environment or other
sources. (air, water, and foods, including fish).

• In human autopsy studies, a direct correlation was found between the amount
of mercury found in the brain and the number of mercury fillings in the teeth.

• Mercury causes normal intestinal micro flora and ‘good’ bacteria you need for
digestion to become mercury resistant and antibiotic resistant. In the intestinal
tract, mercury-resistant bacteria cause mercury to be converted back into vapor,
which is then recycled back into the body. For that reason, antibiotic resistance
is fast becoming a major health problem today, along with IBS.

• Recent scientific research has shown high levels of mercury in the brains of
individuals who died from Alzheimer's disease. Other research demonstrates
that mercury can cause pathological defects in the brain similar to those seen in

5
Lou Gehrig's disease. Mercury inhibits key brain detoxification of enzyme
systems.

Today, the American Dental Association (ADA) states that amalgams are safe and
do not present a health threat. However, in 1989, the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) declared amalgams a hazardous substance.

Once absorbed into the body, heavy metals become embedded in soft tissue or
bones. What makes heavy metal poisoning particularly scary is it not only can cause
severe disease but it can even lead to irreversible damage to your genetic DNA and
your immunity.

While there are treatments to help remove heavy metals from the body, it can take
several months or years to recover completely. Clearly the best line of defense is to
recognize the danger and prevent heavy metal poisoning in the first place, but if
you’re late to the party, there is a way to help detoxify your body.

Removing Mercury Fillings


Mercury filling removal may be more hazardous than having them in the first place
since removing them can generate mercury vapors and paticulates (small particles)
many times greater than simply leaving them alone. Before making any decisions,
have your doctor screen your body for heavy metals with a simple urine test to
determine your levels. If they are high enough, find a biological dentist who is
informed about safe amalgam removal and follows the Dr. Huggins Protocol.

Furthermore, anyone who has cavitations (root canals) should also consider having
those teeth removed. Why? Because root canals are done to save a dying tooth. You
actually end up retaining a ‘dead body’ in your mouth, which has a direct line to
your brain.

Chelation Therapy as Treatment


Chelation therapy is a safe alternative to having amalgams removed. Most people in
the general population are uninformed. They know nothing about mercury toxicity
because it’s been suppressed by many in the medical community.

Chelation therapy was first used in the 1940s by the U.S. Navy to treat lead
poisoning. Chelation was approved by the FDA shortly thereafter as a safe method
of treating heavy metal toxicity. Chelation therapy improves metabolic and
circulatory function by removing toxic metals from the body. This was
accomplished using an amino acid, ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetic acid (EDTA), by
either an oral or intravenous infusion.

6
When a molecule of EDTA travels through the blood stream, it adheres to heavy
metal particles, and pulls them out of the membrane or body tissue. Since EDTA is
an artificial amino acid, the body regards it as a foreign substance and delivers it to
the kidneys to be excreted in the urine. However, EDTA has only demonstrated
effectiveness with calcium deposits. Vitamin K2 is better for calcium deposits
anyway.

Since most people don’t have calcium deposits, there’s another form of chelation
therapy that works well for mercury (and other metal) exposure.

Before antibiotics were used, nutritional iodine was used for all bacterial infections
and general illnesses. Since that time, iodine therapy has been replaced with
penicillin, which has left most people deficient. I would have never even thought
about iodine in today's society because its importance has been withheld.

The Importance of Iodine


Iodine is ESSENTIAL to every cell in your body. Without iodine, you wouldn’t be
alive. You will need to take either Lugol’s 5% iodine solution or a supplement that
contains the proper amounts of both iodine and iodide such as Iodoral.

Lugol's 5% Solution or Iodoral supplements are inorganic or elemental iodines.


Radio-active iodine is organic.

Lugol's iodine solution has been proven effective in chelating lead, mercury,
cadmium, and aluminum, fluoride and bromide, without removing other important
minerals.

The reason really high doses of iodine are used for radiation accidents is because
your body doesn't know the difference between nutritional iodine and radioactive
iodine. The body will take up either form when you’re deficient. Taking large doses
of iodide will go right to the thyroid, saturate it, and keep out the radioactive form.

Iodine is the oxidized form.


Iodide is the reduced form.

Iodide is the salt of iodine. Iodide is found in table salt. Iodized salt has iodine added
to it but it’s not nearly enough to count nor the same thing as nutritional iodine.

Sea salt can is NOT a good source of iodine because it also contains bromides and
other toxins and both the sodium and potassium added to them are non-biological,
meaning the body cannot use them, but it will take them up.

7
Iodine needs real salt (1.5 teaspoons per day) to eliminate bromide. Chloride pushes
the bromide into the urine.

Iodine also needs vitamin C (1,500 mg 2x daily) to increase absorption to push out
fluoride.

Iodine Chelates:

Mercury
Lead
Aluminum
Cadmium

Iodine in the body:


Thyroid needs 3% prefers iodide (50mg iodide)
Lungs prefer iodide
Skin needs 20% and prefers iodide
Salivary Glands prefer iodide
Muscles (650mg) and fat needs 700mg iodine (70 percent)
Stomach prefers iodine
Breast tissue needs 3-5 mg / day minimum and prefers iodine
Prostate prefers iodine

Your thyroid prefers iodide. In the case of a nuclear accident, they will give out
potassium iodide, so that the thyroid will fill up with good iodide and not radio
active iodine.

Lugol's iodine has been proven effective in chelating lead, mercury, cadmium, and
aluminum, fluoride and bromide, without chelating other needed minerals.

Getting proper amounts of iodine is vital to your health. Removing iodine from the
food supply was a major mistake for health. (Or was it an intentional move by the
medical community who wants us all to be sick?)

*Supplying daily intake of iodine for whole body (100-400 times the
RDA):

• gives protection against goitrogens and radioactive iodine/iodide fallout;


• improves immune functions, resulting in an adequate defense system against
infection:
• decreases singlet oxygen formation which is the major cause of oxidative
damage to DNA and macromolecules, resulting in an anti-carcinogenic effect in
every organ in the human body;
• detoxifies by increasing urinary excretion of the toxic metals lead, mercury,
cadmium, and aluminum, as well as the goitrogens fluoride and bromide;

8
• normalizes hormone receptor functions resulting in improved response to
thyroid hormones both endogenous and exogenous; and results in better control
of blood sugar in diabetic patients;
• stabilizes cardiac rhythm, obviating the need for the toxic sustained release
form of iodine, amiodarone;
• normalizes blood pressure without medication in hypertensive patients.

Iodine deficiency is the major cause of cognitive impairment worldwide.


Supplementing iodine results in optimal cognitive function.

One thing to be aware of is when supplementing with iodine, vitamin D levels tend
to decrease so be sure to UP your intake! Find out how much you need:

http://www.lookgreat-loseweight-savemoney.com/vitamin-d.html

To understand how iodine works, you MUST understand the displacement of


metals. There is a well-known law of halogen displacement. The halogen group is
made up as follows:

Halogen Atomic Weight


Fluorine 19
Chlorine 35.5
Bromine 80
Iodine 127

How the law works: The critical activity of any of these four halogens is in inverse
proportion to its atomic weight. This means that any one of the four halogens can
displace other halogens in the body that have a higher atomic weight. For example,
fluorine can displace chlorine, and bromine can displace iodine. Similarly, chlorine
can displace bromine and iodine. Likewise, bromine can displace iodine because
iodine has a higher atomic weight.

A reverse order is not possible. Knowledge of this well-known chemical law makes
you wonder about the addition of chlorine to drinking water as a purifying agent.
We secure a drinking water that is harmful to the body not because of its harmful
germ content but because the added chlorine causes the body to lose the much-
needed iodine. If iodine is not part of the equation, the displacement only makes you
sick.

9
Since bromine can displace iodine, most people are deficient in iodine and may have
symptoms of bromism. For example, excessive bromide’s can cause bromide acne.

Iodine Protocol with Companion Nutrients


Here is a list of the companion nutrients to take with iodine/iodide. The most
important are boron (borax), Vitamin C, and Selenomethionine.

• Borax – Borax turns to boron in your body and can help kill pathogens! To
make borax solution, mix 1/8 tsp. Borax per gallon of reverse osmosis water or
distilled water. Use USP Grade Borax. (I’m successfully using 20 Mule Team
Borax but if you have a sensitive system, you’ll need USP Grade Borax.)

There are no rules on how many glasses of borax water to drink per day. Just drink
it as you normally drink water and that should be sufficient.

• Boron - You can also take BORON supplements instead of borax! Take 2 or 3
capsules per day or one before meals.

You do NOT need to take both.

Boron supports that the parathyroid gland and can CURE hyperparathyroidism.

Some people have used 1/4 tsp. borax per gallon to get rid of candida fungus.

You can supplement with something like the Tri-boron since borax turns into boron
in the body. It can be used to flush out fluoride.

Borox/boron can help remove fluoride from the pineal gland.

Boron is good for bone health. It contains calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, and
vitamin K. Boron has citrate for better absorption. Take 2 or 3 capsules daily.

• Iodine must be taken with 1500 mg. vitamin C twice daily to repair
Sodium/Iodide Symporter (NIS) problems. A higher dosage may be necessary to
detoxify bromides. (The NIS is what transports iodine into the tissues.) Iodine
defuses into tissues, but iodide has to be transported via the Sodium-Iodide-
Symporter. Breast cancer patients and hypothyroid children have a faulty NIS.

Never take iodine straight. It will burn the tongue.

Lugol's 5% Iodine Solution is a combination of both iodine and iodide. SSKI is


Super Saturated Potassium Iodide and is used in a variety of ways.

10
1 VERTICAL drop = 6.25 mg (2.5 mg iodine, 3.75 mg iodide)
1 HORIZONTAL drop (or 2 vertical drops) = 12.5 mg (5 mg iodine, 7.5 mg iodide)

One vertical drop of Lugol's 5% Iodine Solution contains 2.5 mg Iodine and 3.75 mg
Iodide with a total of 6.25 mg. The combination was created to serve the whole body
and was the antibiotic of choice before penicillin.

Add the iodine to a very small amount of water or juice that doesn't have vitamin C,
mix and drink immediately, and then follow with a drink a glass of plain water
afterward, used as a chaser.

Some people add iodine to their orange juice, but some of the iodine converts to
iodide when vitamin C is present.

If you ever spill any Lugol's solution on anything, it will stain. However if you do
spill it, mix water with ascorbic acid (vitamin C), apply it to the area, and it will
immediately turn clear.

Most people start off with about 2-4 vertical drops of Lugol’s solution per day.

Bromide being expelled from the body may cause symptoms of foggy head, acne,
and fatigue.

If bromism occurs, use Morton’s pickling salt to help push it out. (Instructions for
mixing are just below and on your chart.)

If you put the iodine in a capsule, swallow the capsule immediately or it will
dissolve.

• 1/2 tsp of Morton’s Pickling salt needs to be taken with 16 oz of water to flush
out bromide while taking iodine. (Since sea salt has non-biological sodium and
potassium, use Morton's pickling/kosher/canning salt.) Flushing bromide must
be done for people with Graves disease.

Use pickling salt on all foods you cook or eat and do salt pushing several times daily.
Salt pushing: put 1/2 teaspoon in your palm, lick it, and add a tablespoon (small
handful) of warm water to your mouth. Aggressively swish it in and out of your
teeth for a few minutes to help kill pathogens and reduce gum pockets. DO NOT salt
push right before bed or you can get tingling in the hands or feet – a sign of
bromism – when you lay down to sleep!

When using the iodine protocol, add 1/2 teaspoon of pickling salt to plain water and
drink. Keep drinking (lots of) water during the day to help flush bromides from
your body. This will reduce the symptoms of bromism that most people experience
when supplementing with iodine.

11
You can alternate borax water and salt water during the day but don’t mix them
together.

• 200 mcg Selenium, as Selenomethionine MUST be used with iodine to prevent


Hashimoto's from Graves or Hyperthyroidism to Hashimoto's.
Selenomethionine attaches to mercury and keeps it out of your tissues. For any
of these conditions, please read this section.

• 300-600 mg magnesium oxide (Iodine Investigation Project participants prefer


magnesium glycinate or magnesium citrate.) Alternately, you can get the sulfur
and magnesium your body needs by adding a pinch of Epsom’s Salt to your
water throughout the day. Don’t over-use as ES acts as a mild laxative.

• 500 mg. Niacin (B3) twice a day (NOT Niacinamide). Helps muscles and tissues
absorb iodine, and is especially important for patients with fibromyalgia.

• 100 mg. Riboflavin (B2) three times a day. Helps muscles and tissues absorb
iodine, and is especially important for patients with fibromyalgia.

(Feb 2008) Dr. Guy Abraham cautions that "excess calcium supplementation (2,000-
3,000 md/day) has been the most common cause of poor response to iodine
supplementation." Vitamin Research News Vol. 22. Number 2.

• Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) seems to be the best for getting mercury out of the
brain, however in large doses, mercury can relocate and re-toxify other places of
the body. For that reason, it’s preferred to take ALA in very small doses every 4
hours. This appears to help people with autoimmunity disorders.

Other Useful Facts


Chlorophyll (found in leafy green veggies) may also be useful as it helps absorb
toxins in the GI tract due to halogen detoxification.

Pickling salt does not contain iodine but it will push out bromides. The pickling salt
pushes out bromides but it also supplies your body with REAL salt that your nerves
need to function properly.

Bromism occurs when bromides are being expelled from the body, which is crucial
when you’re taking iodine. In order for iodine to be effective, you must get rid of the
bromides. This is dependent on the Halogen Effect and the laws of displacement.
Many people will suffer from bromide acne, brain fog, and dizziness because iodine
pushes out bromides.

12
Mountain Dew has brominated vegetable oil. Breads, cereals, and pastas have
brominated flour. Carpets and new cars have bromide in them. Sea salt and kelp
have bromides in them. The old Bromoseltzer was known to cause acute psychosis
when taken by alcoholics. Bromine is just bad news for iodine (as well as fluorine
and chlorine) because it can displace iodine.

Iodine in large doses can push out fluoride, bromide and some heavy metals, such as
mercury and aluminum.

Anyone who gets fibrocystic disease is extremely deficient in iodine.

Iodine is not a hormone but it is responsible for filtering pathogens from the blood
and assisting hormones for production.

When another halogen, such as bromide or fluoride attach to the receptors on the
thyroid, we become hypothyroid, but the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels
may not show it.

If the TSH raises, it is usually due to heavy metals, mercury, copper, nickel.

Many symptoms of disease are related to impaired thyroid and adrenals and
mercury can cause them as well.

http://www.lookgreat-loseweight-savemoney.com/adrenal-problems.html

Putting a small pinch of Epsom Salts (ES) in your drinks throughout the day will
help your body get both magnesium and sulfur for your joints. When you don’t get
enough sulfur, your body will take it from your joints. ES will also act as a mild
laxative so don’t overdo or it will cause intestinal pain/spasm and possible diarrhea.

Sulphur combines readily with mercury, enabling the body to excrete it. You can
use an organic form of sulphur called MSM, (methylsulphonylmethane), which is
helpful for general health as well as binding with the mercury. It is also inexpensive,
unlike some of the other chelators (DMSA, DMPS). One route of excretion will be
through the kidneys, but because mercury can accumulate there and become toxic,
you’ll need a two week cycle; an active week and a kidney clearance week. Use a
quarter teaspoon of MSM crystals dissolved in a cup of warm water half an hour
before breakfast each day for seven days, along with around eight glasses of filtered
water a day, which is all that is required during an active week. During a kidney
clearance week, take one multi-vitamin twice daily half an hour before meals and
one capsule of potassium citrate three times daily with food, each for seven days.
Potassium citrate is an excellent 'flusher'. DO NOT take the MSM during the
kidney clearance week.

13
Hashimoto’s, Graves, or Hyperthyroidism
If you have Hashimoto’s, Graves, or Hyperthyroidism, you should NOT take iodine
until your selenomethionine levels are raised and until you’ve brought your vitamin
D levels up to optimum range.

Start off with 200 micrograms of Selenomethionine and NOT products marked as
selenium! Selenium stops the peroxidase, which is what attacks the thyroid.

Anyone with hyperthyroid, Hashimoto's or Graves is EXTREMELY deficient in


iodine and very sensitive to supplementing. You can do a patch test by painting a
drop on your skin to see if you have a reaction. However, you should be on
selenomethionine AND gluten free for a couple of weeks to a month (or longer)
before you try it and to get vitamin D levels into optimum range.

IF YOU HAVE A SKIN REACTION TO IODINE, DO NOT TAKE IT YET. You


have to get your D levels up to optimum first AND take selenomethionine for a few
weeks. If you’ve already done that and still have a reaction, please use the form on
this page to ask about it.

Amalgam Removal Protocol


Mercury Facts:

• Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element on earth.


• A silver-colored mercury amalgam filling normally contains 52 percent mercury.
• On average, amalgam fillings weigh 1 gram and contain 1/2 gram of mercury.
• The typical adult carries 10 amalgam fillings containing 5 grams of mercury.
Half a gram of mercury in a 10-acre lake would warrant issuance of a fish advisory.

It is extremely important that you follow the Huggins Protocol when


getting rid of amalgams. However, if you cannot afford a Huggin’s
approved dentist, try to keep with the information below.

14
• Dentist should be IAOMT approved for mercury removal, dental dam, vac
unit, etc.
• Never cross the midline separating our head, between the eyes in one
appointment.
• Always take out the largest fillings first in that side of the head.
• Make sure the dentist cuts around the fillings and never through them, so
that they can just pop them out.
• Make sure the composites are Metal Free, no aluminum.
• Never have an appointment on the same day as the others. This is the 7-14-28
rule.
• When getting root canal teeth pulled, make sure the dentist uses a burr to cut
out the periodontal ligament and doesn't scrape it out. Scraping can push
bacteria back into the bone.
• If having the dental bone cavitations cleaned, make sure that the dentist lets
it bleed (about a teaspoon of blood) in order to form a good clot and that they
don't use any vasoconstrictors.
• After cavitation cleaning, do not drive more than 3 miles within 24 hrs after
cleaning.

A Huggin’s approved dentist will use 100 grams of IV vitamin C before and after
treatments.

Many people notice great improvements in physical and mental health after
amalgams are removed.

Dr. Hal Huggin’s does not suggest that everyone run out and have their amalgams
removed. Reason? It can be more deadly to remove them than is worth doing. He
does suggest that you get them removed over time, (following his protocol), and use
the iodine protocol to reduce mercury toxicity in the meantime.

You can listen to an interview with Dr. Huggin’s here: (approx. 30 minutes)

Other Tooth Facts
Dental decay is systemic.

Always take out all of the larger negatively charged fillings first.

The parotid gland in the cheek releases parotid hormone, which controls the flow of
tooth circulation from the pulp chamber through the dentin, through the enamel of
the tooth. Too low parotid hormone causes the tooth circulation flow to go in reverse
causing tooth decay.

Sugar causes low parotid hormone.

Serum phosphorous levels indicate the balance of estrogen and testosterone in the
endocrine glands. When serum phosphorous is below 3.6, there is dental decay.

When serum phosphorous levels are corrected, (between 3.6 - 4.0), the flow of tooth
circulation goes from the pulp chamber, to the dentin, to the enamel into the mouth
and healthy cavity free teeth are the result.

To stimulate the parotid gland, blood albumin (animal source protein) needs to be
at least 4.6 grams per day, then globulin and BUN will be in the normal restorative
function.

Minerals Needed:
Magnesium
Manganese
Sodium
Potassium

Glutathione will bind to mercury and excrete it but mercury destroys the
mechanism.

Mercury goes to the thyroid in 4-7 minutes.

A cavity will re-calcify if you eliminate all sugars from your diet.

Teeth have either a positive or negative charge. Removing a negatively charged


filling first regenerates the body. Removing a positively charged filling first causes
degeneration, such as auto-immunity.

Never cross the midline separating the face down the center when removing
amalgams in one day. Because of the ‘7-day immune cycle’ successive treatments on

16
the same day of the week must be avoided, and an 8-day interval between amalgam
clearance of each quadrant is recommended.

Alternatively, all fillings can be removed during one session in the hospital, under
general anesthesia if necessary.

In 1975, amalgams became 50 times more toxic than the prior amalgams due to
addition of copper. MS rates went from 4.2 to 58 per 100,000 people in 1975.

Aggressively swishing 1/4 tsp. baking soda with 1/4 tsp. of Morton's pickling salt will
help fix gum pockets.

To keep from degenerating, we need >40 percent fat daily. Consume more solid fats
like butter or coconut oil, not liquid oils.

To prevent cavities and disease in general, keep blood albumin levels between 4.2 -
4.6. (Do this by eating more protein!)

It’s time to ask tough questions:

What sane person would think it’s a good idea to put the 2nd most toxic substance
(mercury) on the planet a couple inches away from the brain?

And, why do they leave something dead and rotting (root canal tooth) in an area of
the body that effects the entire body?

How to Maintain and Detoxify Your Body


Your body was designed to naturally cleanse itself of impurities. Just like any other
system, you need to maintain your detoxification system for it to work properly.
Here are some steps you can take to help reduce heavy metals and their harmful
effects in a very organic way:

• Eat more protein which helps supply essential amino acids used by the liver to
create glutathione, a key antioxidant and detoxifying molecule.

• Eat your veggies, particularly dark colored ones like broccoli, Brussel sprouts,
and artichokes which also help build detoxifying molecules in the body.
Chlorella is a form of algae known to have beneficial effects on removing toxins
from the body.

• Drink plenty of purified water and eat more fiber, which helps ensure normal
bowel movements, and is important for removing heavy metals such as mercury.

• Increase intake of antioxidants like Vitamin C, D, selenium, and B vitamins


through diet or supplementation to counteract some of the most harmful effects
of dangerous metals. Heavy metals in your body create numerous free radicals,
which can damage DNA and increase your chances of getting cancer.

• Use heat therapy to help sweat out toxins. A sauna works great or you can try
using an infrared heating pad, which increases blood circulation.

• To keep lymphatic drainage at a maximum and boost immunity, incorporate dry


skin brushing into your daily routine.

How to Take Lugol’s 5% Solution (Manufacturer’s Directions)


You can use Lugol’s in 2 ways:

(1) As an external application or

(2) In a drink

Do not use both. Choose one method or the other.

20
If the brown stain fades in 24 hours, it indicates that iodine is likely to be insufficient
to normalize thyroid hormone production. Even if you take thyroid hormone orally,
lack of iodine can prevent your body from functioning properly.

When the faded brown stain is apparent after 24 hours, your thyroid will be able to
function more normally.

If you are taking thyroid hormone orally, you may be able to reduce the dosage over
a period of several months, or eventually stop taking it. However, please seek
medical advice to do this.

Methods of Application
Use a glass dropper or small brush to apply the Lugol's Iodine solution to your
upper thigh or lower abdomen in a 3" square patch.

Apply as often as you notice that the iodine has absorbed and the skin looks clear.
For instance, if absorption occurs within 2, 4, or even 12 hours, reapply iodine. In
fact, reapply iodine whenever you notice clear skin.

The object of the frequent applications is to accomplish the 24-hour slight stain as
quickly as possible, rather than to continually apply iodine over several months.
When you notice a faded brown stain after 12 hours, check the stain in another 12
hours. If your skin is clear after 24 hours, continue application once daily until the
stain is apparent after 24 hours. When the faded stain is visible after 24 hours,
discontinue application. This is an indication that your iodine levels are normalized.

You could also take the solution in a drink but do not use both methods! An internal
dose of Lugol's iodine is generally 1 or 2 drops in a glass of fruit juice, sipped
throughout the course of a meal, however the dosage depends on your body weight.
As a general guideline, if your weight is < 60kg, the recommended amount is 1 drop,
taken daily with a meal. If you weigh > 60kg, the recommended dose is 2 drops.

Re-check iodine absorption once per month. Repeat the process as above, if it fades
in 24 hours or less.

Caution: DO NOT use Lugol's Iodine solution if you have an overactive thyroid or
hyperthyroidism. Iodine treatment is used for an under active thyroid gland.
If in doubt, see your doctors and get your thyroid hormone levels checked
beforehand.

Please note that there are indications when sufficient iodine has been taken. If the
body is saturated with iodine, you will find that within 0.5 to 1.5 hours of drinking
iodine, moisture will release (bead) from the nose. If this occurs, stop dosage for a
period of 1 month.

21
Warning: Ten drops of Lugol's Iodine solution is more iodine than is needed.
Excessive or continued use of a concentrated form of iodine may cause
hyperthyroidism. Take ONLY as directed and take dosages according to your
symptoms.

Practical Tips for Lugol’s 5% Solution

The average Japanese person consumes 12.5 mg. of iodine daily from foods.

2 vertical drops or 1 horizontal drop of Lugol's 5% solution = 12.5 mg.

(Most people use 1-4 drops of Lugol's per day.)

Those who find major improvements will do as much as 8-16 drops per day.

Iodine/iodide is out of the body within 24-48 hours.

Some people feel that painting iodine on the skin is worthless because over 50
percent of it evaporates into the air. However, painting iodine does help remove
moles, skin tags, psoriasis, and other skin anomalies.

Those who are extremely sensitive to the toxins coming out when taking iodine,
should start low and work up.

Cancer patient’s protocol is 16 drops of Lugol’s 3 times per day along with the
companion nutrients, PLUS vitamin D3 and pickling salt.

Much of the information in this ebook was given to me by someone who contacted
me through my site. He was interested in helping me and other people who suffer
from livedo reticularis, a mottling of the skin.

Because he helped me, I am now able to help you. How cool is that?

Many, many, many, many thanks to him!

Live Long and Prosper!

Best wishes always,

Afterthoughts

You may feel a bit hesitant about using the iodine protocol. Some of the products
like iodine and borax haven’t been widely used for many years. However, they were
products our parents depended on for many years until science ‘improved’ medicine
and left those older, more reliable products out in the cold. It makes me wonder if
we’ve gone too far? I mean, wasn’t modern medicine supposed to improve ‘quality
of life’?

We’ve got medicines today that have huge lists of negative side effects, which creates
a need for more medicines! Those medications have their own side effects that cause
even more unwanted side effects. The cycle is toxic and non-ending once you start.

Furthermore, the ‘powers that be’ are trying to outlaw natural modalities because
there’s no money in them. Doctors have become accustomed to ordering a barrage
of medical tests today that are totally unnecessary yet we submit to them because
society has been ‘dumbed down’. Hospitals have become big businesses that seem to
be only interested in their bottom line. Heck, hospitals advertise on TV! What the
heck’s up with that?

23
In the US, most of the food bought at grocery stores is nothing but an illusion. Our
government, in a misguided effort to end world hunger, has genetically modified
many vegetables, grains, and some fruits. The human body wasn’t meant to digest
GMO’s and they are causing a huge spike in cases of IBS.

They’ve added powerful steroids and antibiotics to meats and added genetically
modified corn to cereals, breads, pasta’s, and most all processed foods, which only
creates chaos in your body. Aspartame is another dangerous additive. It’s been
secretly added to many dairy and low calorie products and it’s absolutely
poisonous! This doesn’t even include high fructose corn syrup, fake honey, or
yogurts that lack true probiotics, and the list goes on and on. Where is the REAL
food? Look around! It’s hard to find! This certainly isn’t what mother nature
intended!

We’ve got faster everything, yet we are all constrained for time. Most of us spend
countless hours on social media or watch television shows that have no real
meaning, which means we have less time for family and friends. We have rampant
violence nationwide but pay little attention to mental health. We have more of
everything that has less value. We can’t talk about many things that affect us today
because it’s politically incorrect. We have allowed our government to pass laws that
put ‘we the people’ in harms way. So how does suppression feel?

Seems to me, that it’s time to get back to the basics and live a simpler, more tangible
life. Using natural therapies is but one way to get the help you need, without risking
your life taking prescription drugs that contain harmful chemicals that only make
you sick. The only way to make sure you’re around to see your grandbabies is to
take the nutrients, vitamins, and other supplements your body needs to survive and
thrive. It’s the one true way to counteract disease and illness today.
