Wellness Wednesday – Getting Rid of Mercury In Your Body Through Body Detoxification

Now that your mercury fillings are out of your mouth, how do you get rid of the mercury your body absorbed throughout your time of exposure?

The best approach to helping your body detoxify itself after having mercury amalgam fillings removed is to work with a qualified healthcare provider who thoroughly understands how the body naturally rids itself of toxic waste.  Every person’s detoxification process is unique, but there are common themes that you’d be wise to understand.

Your body has a limited number of pathways through which we relieve ourselves of toxins. Your options are poop it out, pee it out, sweat it out or breathe it out. Additional choices that help with detoxification are to avoid alcohol, sugar, artificial sweeteners, and processed foods. You may also want to include certain dietary supplements and food choices.

Detoxification after exposure to dental mercury is very important. If you’re serious about health optimization, then this is part of the process.


Here’s how to optimize your detox pathways:


  • Sweat every day then shower off so your skin doesn’t reabsorb it. Perspiration can get rid of all sorts of toxins. To sweat, you can exercise and you can also sit in a steam sauna or infrared sauna.
  • A high-fiber diet can aid bowel movements. Both soluble and insoluble fiber play a part, but the soluble fiber will “mop up” the toxins released by your liver and carry them away.
  • Drink half of your body weight in ounces of filtered water every day. It’s good for digestion, and it’s good for your kidneys, which are very susceptible to mercury toxicity.

To determine which foods and supplements are most appropriate for you, find an expert in functional nutrition and detoxification techniques to help you.  For help removing the dental sources of toxicity, reach out to our team at BDC!  Ping us through our website today to reserve your New Patient Experience.
