Mercury Toxicity and Homeopathy is one of those topics that causes a strong email response. Here is Mary’s heartfelt story of years of poor health due to Mercury poisoning and her amazing story of recovery through Homeopathy.
Here is Mary’s Story……(my annotations are in green)
“I guess like a lot of people I fell in love with homeopathy because it rescued me in my darkest hour.
When I was six weeks old my parents went to live in the tropics. I had to have all sorts of very nasty vaccinations when I was just four weeks old. These were preserved with mercury. (Until 2001 in Australia, all vaccines were preserved with Thimerosol, a mercury preservative. Now only adult ones and some children’s ones contain it. Check your country for Mercury in vaccines). By the time I was four I had lots of holes in my teeth that were filled with amalgam (mercury fillings) and I got more and more of these as life went on. I was plagued continually by septic tonsils that were treated with repeated antibiotics. (To find out how antibiotics can make your health worse read “Antibiotic Alternatives” here.)
My health went from bad to worse. At eighteen I got a severe bout of glandular fever and strep throat that left me in bed for six weeks during which time my weight dropped to just 77 pounds. I managed to claw my way back to being able to return to my studies after taking a year out to recover.
Next I got repeated kidney infections and a kidney stone. Twice after visiting the dentist I got terrible fevers and my tonsils became so inflamed that only a tiny gap in my airway was left. Once after eating a tuna fish sandwich I became violently ill with extreme vomiting and diarrhea. (Tuna is one of the fish species that contain significant amounts of Mercury along with Shark, Marlin and Swordfish)
The antibiotics got stronger and stronger. At one stage I had 12 shots of penicillin that left me with chronic fatigue syndrome, unable to work full time or walk up a flight of stairs without resting up halfway.
The final blow came when I went to the opening of a new cinema, with newly laid carpet. The fumes from the carpet glue made me very ill again, with a very high fever and septic throat. That time I really thought I might die, but I had a very young child and somehow hung on. Whilst I was recuperating, I happened to be studying Miranda Castro’s book (Miranda is an author-Homeopath) and a light went on in my head. When I got sore throats they were worse on the right side, my breath smelled foul and I had excessive saliva that I had to spit out constantly as swallowing was so painful. This is the exact description for the homeopathic medicine Mercurius (Mercury). Mercury also causes holes in teeth. (This is the typical presentation of a patient who will respond to the Homeopathic medicine made from Mercury).
I rang the cinema, explained I had become ill from the fumes, said I didn’t want to sue, but I needed to know what exactly was in the glue. They sent me the full list and there, not surprisingly, was “mercurial biocide” an antifungal agent.
I realised then, without any doubt, that I had been suffering from Mercury poisoning all my life – something I may never have understood but for homeopathy.
I took homeopathic doses of Mercury to help me get well. I also had all my amalgam fillings very carefully removed. I have never had a septic throat or an antibiotic since then and slowly, with the help of further Homeopathic constitutional prescriptions, I have returned to health. (To understand what constitutional prescriptions are read “Are YOU a good Homeopathic Patient?)
“I feel I literally owe my life to homeopathy.”
Recently I had a client with exactly the same pattern as I had had. She was 17 and had been ill for a year. I asked if she had had any amalgam fillings at 16 and she had. I gave her a homeopathic dose of Mercurius and she arranged to have her fillings replaced, in just six weeks her health was restored.”
Mary’s story is unfortunately not uncommon, and this is one of the reasons why I write a free ezine and spread the word about how Homeopathy can help as much as I can.
