Step 1 of my program is all about eliminating exposure to mercury, other heavy metals and environmental toxins. This is the first priority. I could easily write a few books about all the ways we are unknowingly exposed to various poisonous substances. But, this issue can be effectively undertaken in 12 simple steps.
Remove all amalgam (silver) fillings only by a dentist that is specially trained and certified for the safe removal of amalgam fillings.
Two excellent sources I recommend who maintain updated lists of US dentists more qualified in the safe removal of amalgams fillings are:
DAMS (Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions) is a non-for-profit organization that will send you a wealth of information and resources for Please support them in their great work to help victims of mercury toxicity. The also print a bi-annual news booklet, providing you with updated research, studies, real stories and many valuable resources. Their website is: www.amalgam.org
IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) IAOMT.org
Mercury Free Dentistry ToxicTeeth.org
IABDM (International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine) IABDM.org
Following is a website that shares very thorough and excellent information about root canals, cavitations, amalgam filling removal and shares information about a dental clinic in Tijuana called, American Bio-Dental Center, Tijuana, which has dentists that follow Dr. Hal Huggin’s protocols for proper treatment of root canals, cavitations and amalgam filling removal. Many people travel here from the US to get their dental work done rightly and at a fraction of the cost compared to most dental offices in the US. They also have a list of qualified biologic dentists:
Here is an excellent Youtube video discussing this topic and from dentists at the clinic in Tijuana: Title: American Bio-Dental Center (Tijuana)
Do not eat any fresh or saltwater fish or shellfish, except for anchovies and sardines. In 2011 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officially stated that seafood is now the most toxic and harmful food in the United States due to its high mercury Many other seafoods are also highly toxic with pesticides, dioxins and other chemicals. Farm-raised fish are especially toxic due to the contaminated food they are given. Most farm-raised fish are given steroids and hormones to grow quickly and abnormally large. Many experts state that from the fukushima radiation in Japan in 2011, plutonium (radiation) has traveled to the U.S. Pacific coasts and inner fresh waters and beyond.
Wild Caught Alaskan salmon used to be the last remaining safe, non-toxic fish available. Not anymore. Some researchers have sent various samples of fresh wild Alaskan Salmon and they tested positive for plutonium (radiation). Please avoid all seafood except and sardines and anchovies in BPA-free containers. The cleanest sardines and anchovies are said to be from Norway, Greece and Portugal. You cannot make progress excreting mercury and other toxins stored in your body’s cells if you continue to poison your body with more mercury and other poisonous substances.
Do not eat non-organic meat, eggs and dairy products or at least, greatly limit your intake of it. In 2011, the EPA has stated that non-organic meat, eggs and dairy are now the second most toxic and harmful foods in the United States due to its high level of steroids, hormones, chemicals and pesticides in the foods we feed Also, the food we feed animals is often genetically modified. In some locations, it is not easy to find restaurants that serve organic foods, but at least when at home, please eat only organic meat and eggs. Animals that are fed organic foods are usually treated more humanely. Grass fed beef or buffalo is very healthy. The fat tested in grass fed beef is one of the healthiest fats one can consume. When beef is fed an unnatural diet of GMO corn, grain, soy, and typically does not graze on its natural diet, changes the entire composition of the meat and fat, adversely altering the quality.
Eat only organic fruits and vegetables; at least when at home. All non-organic fruits and vegetables have pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals. These pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, steroids, hormones, etc. are tasteless, odorless and colorless. Just because you can’t see, taste or smell it, does not mean it’s not there.
Also, many non-organic foods are GMO and also irradiated, which destroys the molecular structure of the food. This is demonstrated by countless scientific studies to have a severe detrimental effect on the cells in the human body, including altering and damaging one’s DNA.
This greatly impairs the immune system as well as other bodily systems. Also, the nutritional content of non-organic fruits and vegetables are much lower than organic food. One example: organic spinach contains 8 times more iron than non-organic spinach.
Drink clean, pure water – NOT tap or bottled water! All or most bottled water is very toxic! One scientific study tested 22 brands of bottled water containing high levels of the known neurotoxin fluoride. http://realfarmacy.com/printable-list-of-bottled-water-containing-fluoride/ This does not include the many other toxins in our treated water, such as lead, arsenic, mercury, chlorine and many pharmaceutical drugs improperly disposed up in toilets. Many water tests have identified the drugs, Prozac and other antidepressants, valium, antibiotics, Viagra and many others. So make sure to use a good water filter for you and your pets.
The water filter systems I recommend are:
Ionizer Plus Electrolyzer: Recommended by experts in the field of heavy metal and environmental toxicity, including Dr. Sherry Rogers MD, author of Detoxify or Die. A travel size counter top unit. Sells for approximately $1,700. For more information and some excellent articles and information: hightechhealth.com. If you tell them I referred you, they will give you a 10% discount, as I waive the 10% referral gift they offer. I never accept any form of royalty, perks or gifts from any person or company to recommend their products.
Aqua Tru Water filter system: An excellent travel size counter top reverse osmosis water filter system for about $240. aquatruwater.com/?aid=15189
Zero Water Filter: Available at Bed Bath and Beyond and Target only. An inexpensive pitcher and 5 carbon water filter system for $50. This filter purifies over 99% of all forms of toxins. Four refill filters are about $50.
Use non-toxic cleaners and exterminators in your home. Health food stores carry non-toxic household cleaners. Non-toxic exterminators are available almost anywhere now.
Use only non-toxic personal hygiene products – this includes body lotions, cosmetics, facial creams, perfume/cologne, deodorant. Do not use any perfume/cologne until you a fully recovered. These products are extremely toxic. They are so harmful to the body and when applied on the face and neck, it’s absorbed through the skin and goes directly into the brain, thyroid and endocrine The liver doesn’t even have a chance to try to neutralize these toxins.
The chemicals in perfumes contain known carcinogens and are directly related to causing hormone imbalances, infertility, a weak immune system, allergies/sensitivities, depression, insomnia and many other symptoms. Many cosmetics and lipsticks, including lip balms have petroleum-based products in them! Use non-toxic lip products, available at health food stores. Use only aluminum-free deodorant. We all know how toxic aluminum is to the human body, yet unfortunately, it is still allowed to be used in deodorant, baking powder and other common household products.
Do not consume artificial sweeteners – all artificial sweeteners (this includes Splenda and Truvia) are severely damaging to the body, in particular the nervous system and cause numerous health issues. You’re much better off eating sugar!
Do not use toothpaste and mouthwash containing fluoride. Even though there are countless scientific studies proving how toxic and harmful fluoride is and that it is a neurotoxin and know carcinogen, companies still add fluoride in toothpastes, mouthwash and our drinking water.
NOW Xyliwhite and Spry are my favorite brands of toothpaste and mouthwash and is available at most health food stores. It contains xylitol, which is a healthy sweetener and is also effective at killing bacteria.
Do not use toxic candles. Many candles scented or non-scented release a very toxic vapor into the air. Also, do not use toxic spray deodorizers or the scented plug in types. The chemicals in them contain known These have been known to kill infants (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), pet birds and other animals, cause asthma, allergies, anxiety, brain damage and nervous system problems.
Use non-toxic Teflon non-stick cookware and many other non-stick cookware are very toxic with polychlorofluorocarbons and other poisonous chemicals. The toxins get released into the food you cook every time. This includes cooking with aluminum cookware and aluminum foil. Cast iron skillets and pans are often considered hazardous to one’s heatlh. When cooking food in the oven, also use non-toxic cookware. Glass, ceramic, ceramic and titanium and stainless steel are ideal.
Following are a few excellent sources for non-stick, non-toxic cookware:
Green Pan Paris 10-Piece Cookware Set. Amazon.com
Earth-Pan 10-Piece Hard Anodized Cookware Set. Amazon.com
Ecolution Fry Pan and Sauce Pan. bedbathandbeyond.com
Get a water filter for your shower or bath that filters out toxins, such as chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals and other chemicals in tap water. Chemicals in water get into your body through your pores, especially when your pores absorb more when in hot water. Never use a Jacuzzi that is chlorine treated.
More modern pools and jacuzzi’s are now being designed that are chlorine and chemical free. If you presently have a chlorine jacuzzi or swimming pool, you can purchase a piece of equipment, available at pool supply stores to attach to your Jacuzzi or swimming pool pump that enables you to use only a fraction of the amount of chlorine you normally use. An ideal option is to use an ozone, oxygen, enzyme or ultra-laser light system instead of a chlorine system.
Electro Magnetic Frequency Protection
Prevent or greatly reduce exposure to electronic magnetic frequencies (EMF’s). The topic of EMF’s is not my area of expertise. So, I will only briefly touch on this subject, but know that it is of the utmost importance. Please use “diodes” for all electronic devices in your home, especially your cell phones, computers, wireless routers and cordless phones, as these devices emit the most EMF’s. Also, use diodes for your lamp, electric clock and wall outlets near your bed where you sleep. Never use a microwave for anything, including water, or stand within 6 feet of one while in operation.
Anyone chronically ill is much more adversely affected by EMF exposure. Dr. Klinghardt taught me that EMF exposure greatly inhibits the body’s ability to heal and detoxify by adversely altering and interfering with the body’s energy system. He has numerous published articles and videos explaining the how’s and why’s about this. There are also many other sources available online from other EMF experts.
I encourage you to consult with an EMF expert. I personally recommend Guy Vantresca. His phone number is: 917-549-2627. He is available for phone consultations. Newer, more technologically advanced equipment for EMF protection continues to be produced. One consultation with an EMF expert can advise you on exactly what options are available to fully protect you and your family from EMF exposure in your home, car and elsewhere.
One brand of EMF protection diodes I recommend are Energ Polarit diodes. This is the EMF protection Dr. Klinghardt recommended to me. I have personally tested these diodes with a few different EMF detectors and with various electronics and wall outlets. I can personally vouge that they work at blocking/absorbing EMF’s. Order at: www.Energpolarit.com
The Most Important EMF Protection Diodes
PC or lap top computer.
Electric wall outlet behind or near your bed. These emit EMF’s constantly (right into your head and body!).
Electric clock, lamp or other device near your bed
Circuit breaker box
Personal diode: Small diode for keeping on your person. Put under pillow while sleeping at night, or keep in your pocket or the side of bra or sock when you leave your home.
Smart meter diode: Diode made for smart meters if you have them on an exterior wall of your home or apartment. These are electric boxes installed from the electric company. Some apartment complexes have several together on one wall. If this wall connects to your apartment, please get this diode for smart meters!
Total Shield: An amazing new product on the market. Protects a 20,000 square foot building from outside sources coming in, such as satellite, radio, cellular antennas and towers. It costs about $550. Order the “quadruple coil”. It is 9 inches high by 4.5 inches diameter. https://brimhall.com/p-104-total-shield-emf-protection.aspx
Vaccinations and Flu Shots
I will deliberately keep this topic very short. About 20-25% of my clients were completely healthy until a few days following some form of vaccination. Their life (or their child’s life) turned into a living hell thereafter. If you are considering getting a vaccine, please first educate yourself about the health risks involved with vaccines. Most, if not all vaccines are loaded with mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and other poisonous substances. Please make sure the sources you educate yourself with are not supported and funded by a pharmaceutical company or governmental agency, which is not always easy to determine! It sometimes requires some effective research. Please visit my Facebook page for videos, articles and other posts about vaccines which are from highly credible and independent studies, doctors, scientists and medical researchers.
