52, White Female
For the first time in my life, I can honestly say that after undergoing extensive dental treatment I am feeling well. Previously, I had gone through two regimens of dental treatment at two area dental schools. After the first, I was diagnosed with severe depression and began to suffer recurrent bouts of bronchitis. After the second, I developed acute anxiety and paranoia, a sclerosis of the cornea (shadow vision) which made it impossible to do any extensive reading, contact dermatitis (which prevented one from wearing jewelry), and severe pet allergies. One year ago, I found that I was suffering from acute mercury toxicity. Several upper molars that had shattered around their mercury amalgams where replaced with more compatible materials. My mercury levels were reduced with DMPS IV’s to a level where I can now take DMSA orally. I am continuing to take vitamin and mineral supplements and am still doing periodic liver-gallbladder flushes. Since beginning treatment with alternative medicine and biological dentistry, I have not had a single bout of bronchitis, I no longer suffer anxiety or depression, I am able to wear jewelry without breaking out and not only has my shadow vision improved to the point that I can now safely drive at night, but I can even sometimes read without my glasses- for the first time since 6th grade! My pet allergies are even a little better. My students no longer complain about my illegible handwriting. We are about half way through the treatment program. I am very optimistic about my full recovery. The AMA and ADA approved treatments I received almost ruined my health and my life.
