The Risk of Mercury Toxicity from Vaccination, Amalgam Fillings and Contaminated Fish

Clay therapy in integrative medicine and Pelotherapy - Heavy Metal Toxicity - Eytons' EarthThe debate over the safety of vaccinations has been ongoing for decades, and has reached climactic levels in the past few years. Mercury-based additives are a common ingredient in vaccinations, with the concentrations varying according to the individual vaccine.

We encourage everyone to learn about the dangers of mercury poisoning.

Mercury Amalgams being removed, Courtesy of holisticdentists.comExposure to mercury can come from any number of sources. The most predominant sources for over-exposure include contaminated fish, vaccinations, and silver mercury fillings know as "amalgams". Furthermore, those who have worked for years in environmental settings with industrial chemicals, and settings such as metal smelting plants, may also develop symptoms of severe toxicity. We have personal although limited experience with all exposure types, and can assure our readers from personal investigative experience that all three are valid health concerns under the "wrong" conditions, none of which-- to our knowledge-- can be pre-determined.

Rather than delve into the controversies involving vaccinations and silver-mercury fillings, which we feel should be left to the individual's moral, ethical, and scientific judgment, we'd like to concentrate on what can be done to vastly reduce and possibly eliminate mercury toxicity all together-- and preferably, before it manifests as a chronic illness.

. We encourage those interested to read about the dangers of amalgam removal prior to having such work done.

Protocols for filling removal

The Wisdom of Dr. Yurkovsky:

"In spite of unquestionable and significant harm of silver amalgam fillings, the issue of their removal ought to be approached with utmost caution as we are dealing with drilling at an extremely toxic compound.

If one examines the general outcome that follows the fillings' removal, one is compelled to observe three fairly equal general trends: improvement, no improvement, and worsening of health.

This is regardless of a degree of technical precautions undertaken in the process of removal or whether conducting it in a certain sequence according to the 'most electrically troubling quadrants". The numerous chelators, pharmaceutical or natural, let it be oral or injectable, do not seem to make a difference."


"A middle-aged woman who was suffering from multiple health problems decided to remove all of her silver amalgam fillings. After she was tested with the Bio-resonance testing according to FCT algorithm, she was urged to postpone the removal because many of her organs particularly the lymphatics and excretory system tested weak and the degree of toxicity deemed profound."

Case history of mercury toxicity from vaccination

A Case History of Mercury Toxicity Caused by Ethyl Mercury / Thimerosal from Vaccinations

For years, Eytons' Earth has followed reports of successful treatment of heavy metal toxicity utilizing low sodium bentonite and montmorillonite, the two most predominant healing clays used in pelotherapy world-wide. Clay baths are prepared, using anywhere from 8 cups to 10 pounds of healing clay added to warm water. The individual soaks in the clay water, submerged up to the neck, for between 20 and 30 minutes. Illite ( a mica ) or bentonite ( a smectite ) is often used internally, sometimes combined with psyllium or activated charcoal to assist the body's elimination system.

We have, over the years, run into many situations where heavy metal toxicity was suspected, but medically unconfirmed; healing clay treatment has been successful in eliminating symptoms that match heavy metal toxicity.

Hair analysis, blood analysis, and urine analysis are very unreliable analytical methods for detecting levels of heavy metals in the body. The advent of the Melisa test ( http://www.melisa.org ), however, has made it possible to achieve a reliable clinical diagnosis.

The Melisa Test, registered trademark of MELISA MEDICA FOUNDATIO, stands for "Memory Lymphocyte Immunostimulation Assay", and provides a reliable, objective method for determining immune system sensitivity to specific metals, and metallicl compounds.

We would like to present a very recent documented case confirmed mercury toxicity resulting from vaccination:


Laboratory "Melisa" test confirms Ethyl Mercury toxicity...

The above test results confirm the presence of toxic amounts of Thimer-- Ethyl Mercury-- as a result of vaccinations in a vibrant "middle aged" male who has been subject to numerous immunizations as the result of extensive traveling spanning decades.


The symptoms involved in this case, in the individual's own words:

Here are the symptoms that I have experienced before taking clay baths. The underlined symptoms are those that affected me most:

What are the symptoms of mercury exposure? Symptoms of mercury poisoning are progressive, as attested to by the epidemics in Japan and Iraq. The first stage is known as paresthesia, and it is distinguished by a tingling or numb sensation in the fingers, toes, and face (face in particular). Paresthesia may be followed by:

Difficulty walking and speaking
Impaired vision and hearing
Fatigue and weakness
Headache and trouble concentrating
Attention and memory difficulties
Mercury poisoning is most often signified by nervous system disorders, such as those mentioned above. Damage to fetuses may also include digestive and kidney problems, in addition to mental and nervous system disorders. Severe cases of mercury poisoning may result in coma ( this is what happened to me in France on 19 July 2002 ) or death.

The Treatment used for Mercury Toxicity

The initial diagnosis was not made until the individual was out of the hospital, whereby he approached three independent laboratories to do lab work in an attempt to gain a definitive diagnosis of his condition. While under the care of the allopathic doctors, extensive testing, including MRI's, revealed no causal factor that explained the coma or any of the accompanying symptoms.

Two lab reports came back negative for any toxicity. The third ( shown above ), conducted via the Melisa Test, confirmed Ethyl Mercury levels far in excess of safety levels.

Having finally achieved a diagnosis-- and one that made sense-- the individual, who is very familiar with healing clays and pelotherapy, chose to utilize a montmorillonite clay bath once weekly, and began consuming illite internally.

All of the symptoms associated with mercury poisoning were alleviated within three days of the first bath. The only remaining symptom is the occasional numbness in the head region.

In addition, the individual began to use:

Flaxseed (linseed) oil (omega 3)
Apple pectin
Padma 28 (http://www.padma.ch/en/products/padma28.shtml )
Shark liver oil (because the liver appeared very intoxicated on an ultrasound scan although I do not drink alcohol; mercury is the probable cause)

The initial used has been saved and submitted for laboratory analysis to confirm the presence of Ethyl Mercury, and the "after treatment" lab work up will be posted as soon as we have the data available to us.

The Results of the Healing Clay Treatment

UPDATE: The follow up test results have been completed, and we have seen a copy of the analysis. The new measurements show that the mercury levels in the body have returned to well below the safety threshold allowed for mercury levels in the body. Furthermore, the illite and montomorillonite did not reduce the amount of beneficial "metals" in the body ( those that were measured in the tests ), such as platinum:

Mercury Poisoning: Further Suggestions and Modifications

An Aggressive Approach to Dealing with Heavy Metal Toxicity

Natural desert healing clay obtained directly from a vein of bentonite, suitable for use in pelotherapyAs noted by the case above, organs of the body, including the liver and kidneys, are often negatively impacted by any kind of toxic condition in the body. Here lies the catch 22 of any possible allopathic treatment, including chelation therapy, where treatment results in increased stress to the elimination organs of the body.

It is not enough to pull the contaminants out of the system. One needs to, if at all possible, pull them out while preventing or minimizing the damage that may be done as these substances are chelated and removed from the body.

Unfortunately, in cases of severe toxicity, which are often coupled with various forms of chronic illness, the body's elimination system may not be capable of successfully handling the toxic burden.

This is where healing clay treatment comes in.

While we do not currently have enough scientific evidence to definitively know the limits of clay therapy in heavy metal toxicity, we feel there is ample anecdotal evidence to seriously consider clay therapy before other treatment options. The cost can be negligible, and the initial treatment period is very brief. Even one short week of clay therapy prior to any other treatment options can make a life-altering difference. Even so, the decision to do so must lie in the hands of the individual.

We strongly recommend the individual use a quality internal clay three to five hours before taking the first bath ( one tablespoonful of quality internal clay ). One to twenty full cups of dry montmorillonite or bentonite are added to hot bath water ( anywhere between two and twenty pounds of dry clay ). In order to further stimulate the body's elimination system, we also suggest acquiring even a processed sea salt, and adding one to six cups of sea salt to the bath. Please see our section on clay baths.

These suggestions are always dependant on the constitution and tolerance of the individual!

The temperature of the bath water should be as warm/hot as the individual is comfortable with enduring, and the first bath should last approximately 20 minutes. If the individual has a good tolerance for hot water, this is beneficial... In which case, the head needs to be submerged under the water for a few short seconds. If the individual is not strong enough to tolerate hot water, or when in doubt, lukewarm should be used.

Never needless overtax the body!

Upon completing the bath, it is beneficial for the user to do a brief inventory: Does one feel energized or depleted? A pronounced energized feeling, in our experience, indicates that the body has ample strength to deal with the detoxification, and aggressive treatment can continue. A severe depletion or exhaustion indicates the need for a careful approach.

If the condition is known to be severe, at least a 24 to 72 hour period should pass whereby one does not use clay externally. However, internal clay should be used as much as EVERY FOUR HOURS, if the individual is able to tolerate it, or at least twice daily for a period of no less than three days. The reason for this is that while we believe that a great deal of the mercury ( or other heavy metal ) is pulled out of the body by the clay baths, invariably some will be released into the body whereby the lymphatic system begins the process of internal elimination. It is critical that the body's elimination system be supported as much as possible during this 72 hour cycle.

Although all the methods of clay action in the body have not been proven, explained, or completely identified, there is extensive information available that indicates that clay used internally stimulates the body's elimination system and supports/stimulates liver function ( see Raymond Dextreit's work which chronicles 30 years of experience in clay use ).

After the 72 hour period, it can be advantageous to:

  • Do the "liver check" by taking a thick clay water, soaking a dressing, and applying it to the liver for twenty minutes. Carefully note any reactions. Pain indicates a remaining and serious imbalance in the liver and fatigue indicates a deficiency in liver function.
  • Be certain the body is being properly hydrated ( throughout the entire period, certainly )
    • Utilize plenty of fresh lemon water, to tolerance, to help adjust the body's PH levels.
  • Utilize any of the number of raw food supportive dietary modifications that are available for safe detoxification
  • Consider using:

    • Extract of Cilantro - 6 eyedroppers full daily or taken abundantly in food sources.

    • L-Glutathione

    • Alpha Lipoic Acid - Every four hours

    • Chlorella - 8 tablets three times daily

      • Note: Chlorella and Cilantro have a synergistic effect when used together, ( according to Dr. Timothy Ray's work which was confirmed by double blind studies conducted by Dr. George Georgiou )

    • Vitamin C - up to 10 grams of ascorbic acid, non-buffered

      • Or, large amounts of a variety of fresh fruits & foods rich in Omega antioxidants

    • Selenium - 400 mcg daily

    • Vitamin E - 800 IU daily all natural

    • Flax Seed Oil

    • Pycnogenol

    • Padma 28 ( based on the above treatment suggestion! )

    • Quality water such as structured water like Penta.

    • Probiotics - Especially for those who have autistic symptoms

Beyond this, further action is up to the individual and certainly the medical staff involved in any treatment. Keep in mind that these suggestions are not given as medical advise.

In some situations, clay baths, clay used internally, and dietary modifications provide extremely rapid relief; in as little a few short weeks. In other cases, long term treatment is needed ( sometimes measured in years ) as the metal concentration in the body is far greater, and thus metals are continuously being released into the body's tissues.

Above all, learn to listen to the body's responses!

To give you an example of the general safety of clay treatment, I ( the author ) personally take an average of two to three bentonite baths weekly.

Whenever considering extensive cleansing programs, it is important that that one not neglect the nutritional requirements of the body, and extensive treatment may require vitamin and mineral supplementation-- this is not currently known for certain, but is always a worthy consideration.

If you have knowledge or experience to add, or experience which contradicts ours, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Mercury Toxicity - Other Cases

An individual elected to have amalgam fillings removed by a non-qualified dentist. Upon returing from the first of two dentist office visits, the individual began to experience symptoms of mercury toxicity including numbness in the body. Upon viewing the data presented in this section, the individual elected to immediately begin clay baths. The symptoms of mercury toxicity were completely alleviated. After the second visit, whereby all of the remaining fillings were removed, the individual immediately took a clay bath using green clay ( bentonite ). All symptoms of mercury toxicity were permanently eliminated, with no further problems reported.

  A German scientist once described the bactericidal properties of clay:

"The curative properties of clay are founded in its special physical characteristics, above all in the distribution of its minute particles. Individual clay particles are smaller than many bacteria. If infected mucous membranes are more or less flooded with clay, the bacteria are completely surrounded by clay particles and are thus separated from their source of nourishment and become imbedded in the inorganic material. Growth and the survivability of the bacteria are thus halted almost instantaneously, and from this explained strikingly speedy abatement of the symptoms of infection and/or symptoms of poisoning in acute infectious diseases of the alimentary canal.

Dear Sir,

First of all, thank you for your website!

I discovered the R. Dextreit's book in 2009 while back to France. Drinking daily a glass of montmorillonite clay mixed water and applying clay poultices helped me amazingly getting rid of a 30ish old adenofibroma, even in just a 5-6 week-time. It did not help me though getting rid of chronic pains on the whole left side. Growing pains plus root canal tooth acting as a antenna with EMF, electrosensitivity, electrogalvanism in mouth [even electric arc in mouth] made me resign from a good job in China and search for treatment in France [but not so advanced]. I was found intoxicated with mercury, lead, nickel, and allergic to mercury and silver. I started chelations treatments, dental works [removing metal fillings]. We are now proceeding to root canal treated teeth.

Do you know any experimentation of teeth chelation with clay ?, specifically with root canal treated teeth?
Thank you very much for your feed back,
Best regards,

I have root canal and doubt that it acts as antenna for emf as I used a rubber filler which was cadmium free. The problem with root canals as I have learned over the past year is that microbes make their nest in these teeth and then can migrate in to other parts of the body. These teeth will always be an achilles heal in the body.

I have been exploring pulsed electromagnetic therapy to slow down the bacteria as I doubt they could ever be completely killed off. Many alternative health practitioners strongly recommend removing all root canal teeth. Personally I don't want to lose my bite. There has also been a study in Germany where 70% of test subjects who had cancer also happened to have root canals.
