Freedom From Mercury Madness 4-Step Mercury Detox Program©

Cellular restoration and detoxification program for mercury, other heavy metals, and environmental toxins:


Step 1 of Program – Eliminate Exposure to Mercury, other Metals and Environmental Toxins 

Your first step towards detoxification is to eliminate ongoing exposure to mercury, other metals, and environmental toxins. This includes the removal of amalgam fillings (if applicable) and eliminate consumption of seafood. Drink only clean sources of water, eat organic foods, use non-toxic personal hygiene products, and eliminate other common sources of environmental toxins. For more information about how to easily prevent exposure to environmental toxins including EMF’s, read my article from the blog page: Top 12 Ways to Prevent Exposure to Mercury, Other Metals and Environmental Toxins

 Step 2 of Program – Initial Preparation for Detoxification

  1. Leaky Gut Protocol – effectively restore damaged intestinal mucosal layer and rebuild immune system (recolonize good bacteria); inhibit mast cell histamine release and resolve chronic inflammation and a hyper-reactive immune response, including sensitivities to food, nutraceuticals/herbs and/or chemicals and other toxins; restore impaired assimilation and methylation; prepares you for tolerating the antimicrobial protocol in Step 3 of Program and resolving the overgrowth of pathogens and substantially reduces recirculation of excreted metals throughout the program.
  2. Nutritional Program– introduce ideal foods and high nutrient dense beverages and avoid foods that cause sensitivities; restore nutritional deficiencies.
  3. Thyroid Protocol– achieve and maintain balanced thyroid hormone levels.
  4. Essential Nutraceutical Program– strengthen organs and glands, repair cellular damage caused by the metals, pathogens, and nutritional deficiencies; includes restoring cell membranes (exterior shell of cells), myelin sheath (exterior of nerve cells), and protect brain cells.
  5. Optional nutraceuticals. Additional nutraceuticals (or other recommendations) are optional and introduced to improve your worst symptoms more quickly.

The length of time spent in Step 2 depends largely upon the severity of your sensitivities to the introduction of new foods and nutraceuticals. The average time it takes to become established on full daily dosages before being ready to move onto Step 3:

  • Mild toxic cases: 2-4 weeks
  • Moderate toxic cases: 4-8 weeks
  • Severely toxic cases: 8-12 weeks

Step 3 of Program – Final Preparation for Detoxification

  1. Reinforce Liver and Kidney Protection and Support – further protect your liver and kidney cells from cellular damage from the metals and pathogens. Gently strengthen bile production and your liver’s ability to filter and excrete toxins. Additional liver and kidney support is needed during the antimicrobial protocol in Step 3 of Program and detoxification in Step 4 of Program.
  2. Antimicrobial Protocol – destroys harmful microbes (candida, fungi, yeast, mold, bad bacteria, parasites, and viruses) and prevents larva (eggs) from hatching. This prepares you for successful detoxification by opening detox pathways, reducing toxins produced by the pathogens and prevents ongoing cellular damage caused by the microbes. Your body will be better equipped to handle the hard work of neutralizing and removing the metals during the detoxification process. By eradicating the overgrowth of pathogens, you’ll be able to take your state of health to the next level more quickly.
  3. Additional Minerals – additional minerals are needed for effective removal of mercury and other metals and to prevent mineral depletion, especially during detoxification.
  4. Additional Plant Sourced Sulfur – increases daily intake of plant sourced sulfur. This is needed for effective removal of mercury and other metals. During Steps 2 and 3, you will be detoxifying mercury and other metals more effectively ongoing with food nutrients. This is due to your nutritional and nutraceutical program alone, even though you have not yet introduced heavy metal detoxifiers.
  5. Improve cellular hydration – more powerful support is implemented to further restore cellular hydration, and at this point in the program you can tolerate it. Enhancing cellular hydration too quickly will cause detox reactions, which exacerbates symptoms and causes setbacks.

During Steps 2 and 3 of the Mercury Detox Program, you will be detoxifying mercury and other metals more effectively on a continuous basis. This is due to your nutritional and nutraceutical program alone, even though you have not yet introduced heavy metal detoxifiers.

This program is designed to provide you with the right daily balance of each of the 5 food nutrients necessary to filter and excrete mercury and other metals. This is the last step to fully prepare your body for efficient detoxification. The average time it takes in Step 3 before you are ready to move onto Step 4 of Program:

  • Mild toxic cases: 2-4 weeks
  • Moderate toxic cases: 4-8 weeks
  • Severely toxic cases: 8-12 weeks

Step 4 of Program – Detoxification

Detoxification is the process of using chelators and/or detoxifiers to directly extract (draw out) stored mercury and metals out from body’s cells. The body must be properly prepared before you begin to detoxify mercury (unless you are a very mild toxic case). Failure to do so is the most common mistake made – and the most dangerous.

By the time you begin detoxification, you will be less sensitive, many of your symptoms will be improved and you will have an increased level of strength and vitality. It is this enhanced state of health which enables your body to handle the rigors of detoxification with little or no exacerbation of symptoms.

The first phase of this process causes the direct excretion of mercury and other metals from the outside of your body’s cells (extracellular terrain). The second phase targets the extraction of mercury and other metals from inside your body’s cells (intracellular), including brain cells.

An ideal binder and mobilizer should be taken simultaneously to promote the continuous flow of the released metals as they travel through the body to exit. This helps to prevent re-circulation and re-storage of the extracted metals. The third and last phase thoroughly cleanses the intestinal tract and kidneys.

The most important thing to remember when detoxifying mercury and other toxic metals is that proper preparation of the body is essential to a safe, effective heavy metal detox program.
