Mercury and RA

I have been doing some reading and found that dental amalgams emit mercury vapor and it gets absorbed into our systems. Also that viruses bind to mercury and that mercury imbeds in fatty and connective tissue. So wouldn’t it make more sense that our immune systems are attacking the viruses imbedded in out connective tissue than to think they are attacking themselves? And instead of shutting off our immune systems, shouldn’t we first deal with the mercury issue?

I have no amalgam fillings (they are all composite), yet I have RA. Many people have lots of amalgam fillings, but they don't have RA. It is not a simple causal relationship.

And if the virus are embedded in connected tissue why does the disease only attack some types of connected tissue and not others?

The mercury crosses through into the placenta and through breast milk. Did your mom have mercury amalgams? Some bodies rid themselves of mercury and some are not as capable of doing so, which would be the reason not everyone is effected the same way.

Not got any, mine have always been all white or gold ones ! still got RA. If this is true how would it only affect some joints surely if posioned, its all over?

I have had this for 12 years and it IS all over. I am just starting to look at this because I cannot take regular medication (it nearly killed me) and read that mercury comes from a lot of sources, transfers from mother to child and while it may not be the only cause, it has been implicated by many researchers as being related. Some bodies dispel it and some do not and it burrows into specific places, which would account for specific joints hurting and also why some experience it this way and some do not. I will let you know what I find!

You’ll find a load of scare stories about mercury in amalgam fillings, none of which have been clinically proven. So I’m not going to get into this debate again as it’s been done to death on here and other sites.

I actually understand too as a year or so ago someone went bonkers to me and AT me about a question re when can you have a root canal between Rituximab. A simple question sent this person crazy, bombarding me with unhelpful and unpleasant remarks .. So for that reason .. I'm out!

What a strange thing to say. This is about sharing information, take what you like and leave the rest. I am a scientist who reads academic articles based on research. It is not a debate, it is a discover of findings.

If your a scientist then surely you would look for proof from your academic peers, not ask us who are not medically qualified. I find it a bit offensive that if someone does'nt agree then its a debate but if they do is a discover of findings. My final word id if this was true the NHs would have removed all amalgum fillings as its much cheaper than the medications. I'm sorry if you don't like that but do think that I did nothing to get this condition except be born with a defective immune system and it has caused other problems for me. As for being unable to take any medications then sorry if that was the case for me I'd have been dead years ago not just in pain but stone cold deadas had blood clots related to a lung condition caused by RA. RA does not just cause swelling and pain it has hiden affects which is why I get so concerned about the idea that we can simply help ourselves . No doubt some think that they have 'cured RA by diet' or by magic mushrooms but in reality they could be storing up future problems and damage. If your in the UK then why not ask your dentist ?

This is new to me. Interesting. Would other sources of Mercury also be an issue? Like in fish, seafood, supplements, etc? My Mercury levels are ridiculously high.

Why are people on this site so defensive. Its good to share information, this is how we learn and make our own minds up about what we do and do not want . We dont all want to take medication and shouldnt be shouted down for expressing this. We are not asking anybody to stop their medication just stating possibilities. I joined this site to learn and welcome any ideas.

Found your analysis interesting. People are individuals with different genetic make-ups so why on earth should they not react to any stimulus individually

When I tried, politely, to turn down the mercury amalgam filling offered by my dentist, he shouted in my ear ' But you eat fish, don't you?', expecting me to be floored, I think. I explained that I probably knew as much/ more than he did about heavy metals, bottom feeders etc. His grumpy response was that most of his patients had nothing between their ears. it's an amalgam, not a compound, even, that they are stuffing in our mouths so I would be extremely surprised if there were not some mercury leakage

I, as you, remain open minded.

Have you heard of a disease in the 40s called pink disease? I had this disease and was told by my mother that it was caused by mercury in teething powders. I was told that l was given vitamins, which helped. Looking at recent reports of pink disease it appears to play a part in bronchiectasis, which l have. As far as amalgam is concerned, l asked if my fillings could be replaced and the dentist said no need.

I have heard a lot about mercury in our diets as well that has caused a lot of problems for many people regarding autoimmune diseases. I was considering getting tested for mercury in my body.

I put up a post the other day explaining how I wanted to explore other avenues other than the strong immune-SUPPRESSANT drugs and people have to be so negative and bitter about it, I wasn’t asking anyone to join me on it. The amount of people on here that have to be so negative is ridiculous, this is designed surely for people to share experiences and what has worked for them as well as for people to know they’re not alone in their suffering.

I have spoken to so many people that have had autoimmune diseases that have cured themselves through diet and have weaned themselves off of their drugs that really were just causing more problems than the disease itself.

If people don’t want to be open-minded then that’s their prerogative- I think it’s important to explore other avenues as well as just the ones that drs prescribe to us.
