Mercury Increases in the Body when Chewing Gum

An interesting study has shown that mercury increases in the body when chewing gum as the act of chewing releases methylmercury from amalgam fillings in the teeth.

A German study conducted by Gebel, Dunkelberg showed that chewing gum resulted in a significantly higher level of mercury in the urine, compared to non-chewers.

In fact, the mean urinary mercury content in gum chewers was 1.36 Hg/24 h vs. non-chewers 0.70 ug Hg/24 h). This in effect doubled the amount of mercury released from the amalgams with only 15 minutes of chewing.

What are the existing alternatives to amalgam fillings?

Following the removal of an amalgam filling, the cavity that is now empty must be refilled. In the past, there had been concerns regarding the durability of composite fillings (“white fillings”). However, with ongoing development and research of dental materials, we now know that these fillings are extremely resilient, compared to amalgam.

There are many innovative composites that do not release the controversial material Bisphenol A (BPA), as shown in various lab tests.

Additional options for filling the cavity include laboratory porcelain reconstructions, as well as material made of glass ionomers.

What is Dr. Georgiou’s Heavy Metal Detox Protocol?

This protocol is very simple to use as it consists of 3 separate ingredients as follows – it is sold as the HMD ULTIMATE DETOX PACK:

  1. HMD – this is the main intracellular heavy metal detox chelator that “pulls” metals from inside the cell to the outer mesenchyme. This is a critical part of Dr. Georgiou’s Heavy Metal Detox protocol and it cannot work without the HMD.
  2. HMD ORGANIC CHLORELLA – this is a toxic-free chlorella harvested from the pristine mountain lakes of Taiwan. It helps to “grab” the heavy metals outside the cell and eliminates them from the body.
  3. HMD LAVAGE – this is a “drainage” herbal remedy that helps to open up the elimination channels of the body by helping to upregulate the detoxification pathways of the liver, kidneys and lymphatics, while cleaning the blood.
