Dr. Boyd Haley: ``Show Us the Science''

IAOMT Annual Meeting, Las Vegas - September 2007

. . . continued from home page
More and more reputable scientific data has linked the mercury in our body to the mercury/silver amalgam fillings in our mouth and the disastrous effect it is having on our bodies. Dr. Haley also reminded us of the early research of the late Weston Price DDS, who demonstrated that bacteria residing in the dentinal tubules are related to infections in other areas of the body. The current growing body of evidence also demonstrates that a significant amount of diseases in our body originate in the mouth.

Increasing numbers of courageous dentists and physicians are now responding to the scientific findings - both clinically, scientifically and logically - that it is not a good idea to put the second most toxic material on this planet in the mouth and not expect to have some undesirable consequences.
Health practitioners have found that symptoms of mercury toxicity are not easily recognized to be linked to mercury. Mercury is not detected in the conventional blood and urine test. Because of its chemical affinity to many chemical bonds in various tissues of the body, it becomes locked in the tissue and often not detected in fluids of the body - urine and blood - unless there was recent exposure.

Dentists were taught that the mercury/silver/amalgam was ``inert,'' stable, and did not break down. We now know that every time we chew or brush our teeth, mercury is released from these fillings and is absorbed into the body. It has been reported that mercury has a 30 to 40-year half life. Mercury that was acquired years ago can still be present today and becomes accumulative.

This author has attended this and many similar meetings over the last 30 years regarding mercury toxicity and its diagnosis. During these meetings, and in discussions with the attendees, many have shared that one of the reasons they have become schooled in this issue was because of their own health challenges. They were motivated to find the answer and discovered that their chronic symptoms were due to the mercury that they had been working and playing with for years and that which was in their own mouth. Many of these health care providers shared how they used to play with mercury as a child, as was my case. This means that the mercury we played with, and inhaled its colorless, odorless, toxic gas can still be affecting our body today. What a depressing thought, but fortunately it was and is a strong motivation to recognize the danger that was under our nose for years.

At this year's meeting, the members of the IAOMT were introduced to a non invasive, revised and updated test, that can alert the patient and practitioner to the ill effects of various toxins. A Porphyrin Profile measures the prophyrins in the urine and serves as a biomarker of the effects of toxins on the heme biosynthetic pathway. Heme is essential for the proper function of many proteins including oxygen transport, energy production, and detoxification. Patterns of specific Porphyrin elevations in urine may serve as functional markers of toxicity from toxic metals (e.g. mercury, lead, or arsenic) or organic chemicals.

Previously, this test was too unstable for accurate findings. However, through persistent research and development, the revised test can now often be substituted for the DMPS or DMSA challenge test, which is often too invasive to the toxic individual. In forthcoming articles on, we will share with you the results and effectiveness of Porphyrin test carried out by dentists or physicians. will endeavor to continue to provide information so that you may consider, with a reasonable understanding, the conditions that affect your health and wellbeing. An effective health partnership is emerging in the health delivery system to deal with this longstanding health crisis. The team consists of a well-trained dentist who will remove the cause of the disease located in the mouth and the physician who will remove the effects located in the tissues of the body. It is time to see the importance of detoxification of our bodies for those of us who are suffering from the effects of mercury poisoning. It is time.

I live in the Roanoke Valley of Virginia. Roanoke is the largest city in southwest virginia at a population base of 150,000. Small mountain town with an even smaller group of people interested in organic and alternative care. Carillion is a large medical conglomerate that has a choke hold on even the allopathic doctors here. Forget anyone trying to get an alternative practice up and running. There are absolutely no biological dentists within 2 hrs of Roanoke.

Given that environment, it was interesting to note that when I was seeking a dentist, every office I called said they have stopped using mercury almagam fillings unless the patient demands it due to low cost. Then the patient has to sign a waiver. Looks like the dentists are leary of the mercury fillings even if the ADA is not.

Gigi, thanks so much for posting all this now. I've been reading all morning trying to figure out how I'm going to proceed with this molar, now that I swallowed the crown.

Whatever I do, I want to do the best for return to greater health again.

What I have learned through my own ordeal with teeth:

Never again would I try so desperately to save a tooth, for the sake of saving the tooth. Had I adopted that idea earlier in my life, I probably would have lost some teeth, but not all.

The crowns, bridges and root canals almost cost me my sanity and my life. None of them caused me any pain. But did they ever produce the mercaptans and the thioethers affecting my health, without my recognizing the danger of these.

I had to have a lot of repair constantly - the fear and stress living through a war -- took its toll. None of my children today have this problem. So genetics is out.

If I had a choice - I would go with a partial, if possible/location, from the best material, tested for compatibility of the combined materials, before manufacture, at a much earlier stage than I ended up doing. If another tooth goes bad, it can easily be attached.

This was not a perfect solution for me, because I started with a partial much too late after many teeth had already been crowned and root-filled. To survive the microbes, I had to take much more drastic steps. Today my mouth is healthy and so am I.

You might want to do some research on TODAY's

Take care.

Just sharing my experiences.

Luvs, most of my friends and people who need dental work travel far.

Most of the good ones you find by word-of-mouth.
The ADA keeps a watchful eye on all of them. I know some good dentists that had to shut down because they lost their license. So you will not find any of them hanging out a shingle saying here I am doing holistic dentistry.

My ex-dentist of years ago just became disabled also. I am very surprised that he lasted as long as he did because he started to limp with hip problems years ago. I know more unhappy and unwell dentists - they are now coming to Dr. K. seminars to learn what they should have figured out decades ago ---

So sad.

I hope your find solutions to reach your goal -- wellness. You are almost there.

Take care.

Just sharing my experiences.

The IAOMT website is an excellent place to find "mercury-free" dentists who will follow a stringent safety protocol when removing mercury amalgams.

However, in my experience, these dentists do not supervise chelation (using DMPS or other chelators to remove heavy metals).

So if you're thinking of removing your amalgams, you should consider seeing a naturopath, osteopath, or other holistic practitioner who can supervise chelation before and after you get your amalgams removed.

Also, in California, holistic and mercury-free dentists have a lot of protection that they don't in other states (similar to how LLMDs can practice more freely here). Organizations like the IAOMT have been really active on the ADA and political front, and patients here benefit.
