Normal Detox: What Are the Symptoms Associated with Mercury Toxicity?

REPORT: Lichtenberg, H. Elimination of symptoms by removal of amalgam from mercury poisoned patients, as compared with a control group of average patients. Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine 8:145-148, 1993.

ABSTRACT: How do we determine the symptoms due to mercury toxicity? This study removed amalgam from a group of patients poisoned by mercury and compared them to a control group of average patients. The results showed a reversal of symptoms after amalgam removal, strongly suggesting that mercury toxicity was a likely cause.

RESULTS: The following results indicate the percentage of patients’ symptoms which either improved or were eliminated. The first chart indicates a list of symptoms. The second chart indicates symptoms when categorized systemically.

Which Symptoms of Mercury Toxicity Are Likely to Improve with Treatment? REPORT: Ziff S. & Ziff M. “A Consolidated Symptom Analysis of 1,569 Patients.” Bio-Probe (IAOMT) March 1993.

ABSTRACT: This was a Health Symptoms Analysis of 1,569 patients in six different studies. The data was derived from 762 Patient Adverse Reaction Reports submitted to the FDA by patients and from 807 patient’s reports from Sweden, Denmark, Canada and the U.S. The studies evaluated the health effects of replacing dental fillings that contained mercury.

RESULTS: The result of the analysis shows the percentage of patients who reported a cure or improvement in symptoms as compared to before treatment. The first chart indicates a list of symptoms. The second chart indicates symptoms when categorized systemically.
