Mad As A Hatter - Part 2
On an emotional level, the relief was instant, knowing that I was removing a foreign object that I wouldn't want anywhere near my body. On a physical level, over the subsequent months (and years) I have enjoyed a slow, but steady return to the mental capacity I knew from the years before my struggle.The brain fog lifted and the frustration of feeling constantly unwell went away.

This week, The Weekly Beet reports on Part 2 of Mad As A Hatter with an essential mercury detox guide. Mary Kent reveals how she became free from a bit more than just the mercury in her amalgam fillings.
Last week, I got to the root of mercury toxicity, sharing the damaging effects of Amalgam Illness on the body. This week, I am excited to share my new found expertise in the realm of heavy metal detoxification, the incredible products I found along the way, and a few techniques that I can honestly say will help speed the process of any exposure to mercury. It was difficult enough knowing that I had the second most toxic metal on Earth in my mouth and that it had creeped into my life, wreaking havoc all over the place. But, I will say the ultimate challenge came during and after the fillings were removed from my teeth. After my dentist chose the perfect composite that would not react to my body chemistry, the removal process was underway. Flashbacks of painfully sitting in the dentist chair as a child immediately popped into my thought patterns and I quickly began to wonder how on Earth my body had withstood the mercury for as long as it did. As the removal was necessary to do in stages, the entire process took three trips to the dentist to get all eight of my mercury fillings out. But it was my first trip that was by far the hardest part of the recovery, as the mercury had damaged one of my nerves pretty intensely. I had experienced serious amounts of fatigue and brain fog for a few weeks. I learned that the problem with mercury removal is that drilling releases mercury from the amalgam in the form of vapor and particles of the amalgam can easily fall into the mouth and be swallowed. If a dentist is not properly trained in the technique of removing mercury from amalgams, then exposure to more mercury can easily occur. Appropriate safety procedures during the removal should be undertaken by your dentist (see Mad As A Hatter Part 1). With vapors leaking, adding more mercury to the already present mercury in the body, it was absolutely necessary to begin a detox immediately following the dental work to remove all heavy metal.
As I began to take a good look at myself, there was clearly alot of clean-up to do that had somehow extended into parts of my life that I wasn't even aware of. Unknowingly, I had made bad choices and wondered why nothing ever seemed to fully manifest. But, since we all know about the Law of Attraction, meaning our thoughts
become our reality, it was only obvious I had created a most toxic environment reflecting the exact toxicity coming within. As a result of the negative thinking the mercury had created in my brain, it was apparent that I had some serious rewiring to do. But, it wasn't just the inside that needed cleaning. My career was a mess, as I was totally paralyzed by fear. My writing got put on hold for weeks at a time. My love life crumbled, as I was labeled paranoid and angry. And, I lost friends, as I couldn't keep up the contact. In other words, every single aspect of my life had in some way or another been touched by the effects of mercury. And, yes, I TOTALLY felt like a victim! But, as the days went by and the more I mustered up the strength to trust, a few miraculous things started to happen. Of course, I researched until I couldn't research anymore, but I decided that I would try my best to let it all go and sure enough by doing so the right people came forth with a lot of useful remedies to add to my knowledge. A friend of mine introduced me to Dr. Max Collins, a chiropractor who had invented a technology based on light and sound vibrations to reverse neurological damage among many things. Another friend told me about the incredible effects of clay baths. Another friend just simply listened to me cry. And, another friend who had also had mercury toxicity called me the minute I walked out of the dentist's chair to affirm in my mind that, yes, I was on the right track. Though throughout the process, I did continue to feel victimized, but I would soon learn it all had to happen for a reason. I was on the verge of learning to accept the experience as a gift filled with the most magical lessons I would ever go through.
So, my only choice was to get serious and detox. I had one major goal and that was to focus on getting the mercury out of my body, not just my teeth. Here are some of the things I did to amplify the detoxification process. Try:
- DMSA and
DMPS. These are two chelation drugs and should be carefully considered. I chose not to use these as there are many side affects.
- Footbaths. Try a detox footbath (see photo
above!). Foot baths are awesome and help to remove toxins.
- Clay Baths. Order LL Magnetic Clay Baths. Follow the instructions precisely. I used this clay bath and felt a major difference within thirty minutes.
- MSM. Take 2000mg MSM twice a day. Sulfur helps to bind to the Mercury in the body.
- Vitamin C.
- Vitamin E & Selenium.
- Chlorella. This sea algae has been shown to sweep mercury out of the bowels and from the cells.
- Optimum Greens. These greens are essential to take during any detox program.
- Cilantro. Removes mercury from the blood.
- Liver Cleansing. You absolutely must do a liver detox. Email me for the exact instructions.
- Praying. I prayed every single day to get me through the process. Connect to whatever higher power you believe in and pray your heart out! It works!
- Chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. The universe guided me to this incredible Buddhist chant that I now
do every day to give me the empowerment that I need! Chanting is the key to eliminating negative self-talk.
- Letting go. I let go of feeling like a victim. I let go of anger towards the ADA. I let go of my past. I let go of my sadness and frustration. I let go of judgement, doubt, and negativity. And, finally I let go of
the toxic people, events, and situations I had attracted. By affirming this, you hasten the detox process.
- Loving yourself. This is absolutely the most important element to learn when going through any experience like this. No one will ever love you like you can.
- Being positive. Surround yourself with happy, patient, positive, and compassionate people who can understand a bit about what you're going through.
- Trusting. The process does end at some point. It just takes time, commitment, serious dedication, and effort. Have faith and know that with time the mercury does get eliminated from the body.
As the weeks have past since my final mercury fillings have been out, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank the universe for guiding me to Dr. Larry Frick. For anyone getting mercury fillings removed, it is essential to consider who is doing the removal of the mercury. For a referral to a dentist trained in this procedure, please call 800-331-2303. By the end of the mercury removal process and the ultimate, heavy metal detox I concocted for myself, it was evident I had done alot more than just get mercury out of my life. It was as if my entire detox process had weaned out the bad from the good. I hadn't just detoxed my body, I had detoxed my mind and my spirit as well and that which didn't adhere to my new life was to be forgotten forever. I had changed many aspects of my diet and was beginning to see serious changes in my mental and emotional outlook on life. My creativity was slowly returning. I was starting to smile and laugh all the time and my energy had returned to a heightened level. I wasn't waking up in the morning utterly exhausted. My headaches and arm pains went away. The repetitive thought patterns were becoming more spacious. As a result, I started thinking of so many things I had always wanted to do, but had always been in fear of doing so. I knew what was staying in my life and what was going. But, most importantly, I knew that mercury had dropped in on me to help me remember that my healing process came first and to show me that I, Mary Kent Hearon, was an ultimate gift from the universe, who had a serious responsibility to adopt a self-love and self-care regime immediately and happily ever after! And, now, after doing so, I can finally see the results and say it works! But, it was only from learning what I know now that I can finally choose to be free. I earned it and now I can toooootally be me.
It's time to detox the toxins. Get your mercury fillings removed! Don't miss a Beet. Stay tuned for next week.
