Magic Metal; Mercury Poisoning and Homeopathy

We formed a circle on the kindergarten floor awaiting our teacher’s attention. Miss Miller’s “show and tells” were the best. She explained that we were to learn about a special liquid metal called mercury. The small silver balls were passed around for us to play with on the linoleum floor. At five years old everything is magical.

The innocence of the 1950’s still plagues us. Today, hard science warns us of the dangers of mercury. Presently, given our contemporary climate, if a teacher were to expose children to mercury, she might be subject to the wrath of parents and school board and sited by the DEC. Hardly magical any more.

What of those of us who had been exposed to mercury half a century ago? And those who have suffered its mishchief on a day to day basis via dental amalgams? Consider a medical method that has a world wide reputation with a proven record: homeopathy. Homeopathy has dealt with mercury poisoning and the likes for the last 200 years.

Homeopathy is an intelligent form of medicine that treats the person as an individual. Unlike modern medicine that treats symptoms, homeopathy focuses on the individual and how he is physically and mentally experiencing the illness. This is expressed through the body’s innate intelligence via symptoms. Homeopaths don’t want to erase symptoms. Instead the goal is to use these symptoms to determine which homeopathic remedy best suits the individual. Once the symptoms are carefully noted, the homeopath looks for a match to a homeopathic remedy that has been shown to address the sufferings. This will uproot the illness.

Although many confuse homeopathy with the term holistic, it is a specific medical discipline that was widely used in the US until half a century ago. It never lost favor in lieu of drugs in England, India, France and Germany where over 40% of the doctors are homeopaths. It is indeed a medical discipline in a unique category. Homeopathy uses minute amounts of plant, animal and minerals that, when properly utilized, stimulate the person’s ability to bring itself to its best economy. This means homeopathy believes that we have the ability to resolve health issues when given the correct stimulus.

Once homeopathy has been employed and the suffering diminished, a blood test to determine the amount of mercury remaining will confirm the changes. This often takes months, but the reward for waiting is worthwhile.

Each person with mercury poisoning will present in his own way. One, for example, will have ataxia (a type of paralysis), another may have excessive perspiration, a swollen tongue and profuse saliva, while another may have memory loss and foggy thinking. Choosing the correct remedy is best left to a homeopath with solid credentials and experience. However, for the sake of interest, let us examine the possibilities.

The most common remedy that has historically addressed poisoning, even low levels, is Natrum muriaticum6x, (Nat mur). The picture that Nat mur 6x covers is one of oversensitivity. For someone who suffers from being around perfumes, cigarette smoke and chemicals, particularly if mercury is associated with their illness, Nat mur should be strongly considered. It may take time and patience, but Nat mur 6x can address the associated issues. This is one of the few remedies that could be recommended for most people who have been exposed to mercury with reasonable accuracy. It could be taken daily for weeks.

If the pathology is paralysis, one of the most valuable remedies is Hepar sulph. Given in proper dosage and timing, it can be most beneficial for those who also are hyper-sensitive. This can include sensitivity to weather changes, sensitivity to pain and to the odors of chemicals as well as to food and even animals. The need for Hepar sulph may also present with painful and swollen lymph glands. Once it is determined thatHepar sulph is the best match, it is usually taken monthly for a specific amount of time depending on the needs of the sufferer.

Metal poisoning can also cause psychological pathology. Nitricum acidum is a powerful remedy that aids someone who has had a disturbance of the central nervous system as a result of mercury poisoning. Its need is determined by behavior associated with strong and persistent fears of death. It is also considered for someone who worries immensely about their health, often expressed in panic attacks. Nitricum acidum is a mainstay of homeopathic literature that is timeless and enduring. Homeopathic Sulphur should be considered if the issue after mercury poisoning is associated with heat. For example, the person may experience heat in an uncomfortable way. He may find that perspiration is excessive and that his odors are of an offensive or metallic nature. This is a remedy that has been shown clinically to provide immeasurable relief for children who have had reactions to vaccines laced with mercury. It can be of value even years after the time of the inoculation.

Consider the case of Robert. On Thursday, this healthy newborn, at six weeks old, was inoculated with polio. By Saturday he was too weak and limp to nurse and presented with a temperature of 105 degrees. His parents linked the reaction to the vaccine since nothing else in his short life could be associated. After three days of suffering, Robert was given two doses of Sulphur 200c. The fever and listlessness were aborted within hours and Robert resumed nursing happily with no residual illness. What is most remarkable, is that there were no side effects. Homeopathy has a sterling reputation for results such as this. Each of the above remedies is only a small sample of the choices to reinstate health in someone suffering from the ill effects of mercury. Even mercury is not to be feared in light of homeopathy’s reputation. Nonetheless, if our guileless Miss Miller had known about the dangers of this metal, she might have sought elsewhere for a source of magic to dazzle us.

 

I am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

  1. Eileen Joyce says:

    Do these remedies work for all toxic metal poisoning or just mercury. By other toxic metals I am referring to lead, cadmium and antimony, aluminum, cadmium and arsenic

    Thanks for your help.

      Each of the remedies I site have different applications; some specifically for mercury, others that cross over to many or even all toxins. For example, Sulphur is useful when the symptoms fit for a host of responses due to nearly any toxin, but the symptoms MUST fit. On the other hand, Nat mur 6x can be used for any response, any symptom.

  2. carol says:

    do remedies work if a person has had all their mercury fillings removed & want to detox it out of the body? thank you, carol

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I’m not sure I understand your question. Are you asking if homeopathy has the ability to detoxify? If so, the answer is a resound YES! It is the way I’ve done it myself and taught thousands over the last 2 decades.

  3. Rose says:

    I had fever a lot as a child and often somehow broke the thermometer. I remember sitting in the floor, even when older, and playing with the little mercury balls. I was fascinated at how they moved around. This may explain a lot of my issues! If only we had known . . .

  4. Donna Fiederlein says:

    What potency of Nitricum would you use, and for how long? Thank you, Donna

    1. joette calabrese says:

      I don’t have a specific protocol, but as long as I had full confidence that the diagnosis is 100% correct, I might use it in a 30th potency every 3 Days. The reason I emphasize that there must be certainty, is that far too many people make the assumption that they have mercury or other heavy metal poisoning only to learn later that it wasn’t the cause of their problems after all. In other words, we don’t use homeopathy like we would a supplement or vitamin and approach it casually.

  5. Laurie says:

    What about Aurum Met for mercury toxicity? I have read some things online about this, though the actual homeopathic books don’t specify Aurum as being used for mercury toxicity

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      There are many homeopathics that are used for mercury toxicity. Aurum is certainly one of them.

  6. Ethelyn Schaeffer says:

    Do you muscle test?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      No.

  7. JP says:

    I have mercury toxicity from amalgam fillings (that have been removed years ago), I know this from a recent hair test. So the diagnosis is certain and symptoms like emf sensitivity fit as well. The traditional chelation protocols are difficult to do, you would have to take chelating agents every 3 hours plus many antioxidants etc. Do you think homeopathy would be alternative for this? Has it ever been tested if homeopathy can effectively remove mercury by taking urine or hair test before and after taking homeopathics for some time? Thanks.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I have had clients and students report that their numbers have reduced after homeopathy.

  8. Eileen H says:

    I’ve been exposed to mercury due to a broken light bulb. I have been extra sensitive to chemicals already and find myself still suffering symptoms while others arn’t. My question is is there a remedy that fits edema caused by mercury toxicity?

    I’ve been taking Merc. Vivus for a while for it but not 100% effective.

  9. Norma says:

    I have removed mercury amalgams and there are many simptoms are not here. Depression, inhability to focus, memory loss, insomnia, comprehension. My doctor does muscle testing and found mercury, chlorine and another and gave me Chelaco from standard process, but is not helping much.
    I was reading on dr. pompa’s protocol that unless you detox at a cellular level nothing much will change. What are your thoughts and can I use the Namur for my symptoms?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      As we speak I’m putting together a course on the subject of Toxicity for sometime this spring.

  10. Judy Rakotz says:

    I have metal knee and severely sick nothing working as in supplements will homeopathy help with the metal knee still in place.?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Are you describing a knee replacement apparatus?

  11. Masood says:

    Hello,

    I’m in process of removing 10 amalgam fillings and extracting a dead crowned tooth which had been infected twice and treated with antibiotics. From what I understand, the infection will remain even after antibiotics and suggestion made by dentist to extract tooth. I’m also removing two remaining lower wisdom teeth..
    My question is in regards on how to deal with the negative effects I’m having related to mercury poisoning I’m experiencing such as brain fog,l, insomnia, chronic fatigue, no desire to do anything, negative thinking, memory issues, muscle aches, loss of appetite , the list goes on and on, fear and anxiety for no reason, keeping away from others…
    Just wondering if anything of the homeopathic medicines you’d recommend would be something that could help while you still have fillings in mouth or should it be taken to detoxify once all amalgam mercury fillings are out of your mouth?
    And I’ve also had bad case of nail fungus to both feet and hands which I’m assuming could also be do to mercury poisoning effecting candida and nails?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Given that homeopathy is medicine, it should not be used based on an assumption. It’s just as likely that the cause of the conditions is infection/s. If indeed it is determined that mercury toxicity is found, Mercurius may be of use, however, its best to use the medicines based on what are absolutes. Symptoms are known while etiologies are often difficult to determine.
      Choosing medicines specific to the mental state holds more weight than an assumption that it must be mercury poisoning.
      Search around this blog using some of the keywords you mention and I’m certain you’ll find an article that encompasses the emotional conditions you describe.

  12. Christie says:

    Can a homeopathic metal detox like this be done safely while pregnant?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Homeopathy is not a detox; its gentle medicine that corrects the condition. It’s used during all stages of life, including pregnancy.
