Key thing is to avoid every drug except for those you absolutely need.

Thanks !

Mercury is gradually excreted mainly in the stool as I understand it, and patients mostly gradually improve on their own. This may be more for true intoxications with elevated levels but what do I know.

I watched the video. All I can say is, “Wow”. My mother, now deceased, had a spinal fusion in her 70s. Within a couple of years she had increased pain and all the titanium was removed from her back. She was told she had developed calcium deposits but I now wonder if she had a sensitivity to the metals. Why aren’t people tested for this before surgery?

Another excellent article!

You are building a library of practical strategies to heal from the widespread poisonings our people suffer under.

Thank you for sharing this, I hadn’t even considered this as a potential worry until now, which frankly I’m shocked that I never thought of this before. But my Dad is in the hospital now, he’s 80 and just got titanium screws put into his L5 area...and he seems to be doing well (it’s been 3.5 days now), but my FAR greater concern is my son who’s 15 is having back surgery in August. He has bilateral fractures in his lower back and after 2 years of pursuing every other option available, including some ‘experimental’ options, fusing his back is the only option left. We’ve been to 5 different specialists, multiple PT offices, etc but he’s now missed the last 2 seasons of lacrosse due to the pain in his lower back. But, I’m going to call his Doctor and ask about getting him tested for allergies and find out what type of screws he uses (I’m 90% sure he said titanium). Thank you again for raising awareness here!

I knew Dr. Scott Schroeder when I lived in Washington, where his practice was.

He is an excellent practitioner.

If I knew how to get in touch with him, I'd add my story to his list of patient experiences. I fractured my ankle (leaving work at the local hospital, of all things) in 2010 and subsequently underwent ORIF. When I recovered from that (and the subsequent PE I had, just to make life more interesting) and could no longer blame the aches in every joint in my body on anything else, I looked into metal toxicity/allergy. I found stories similar to all of these. I asked the orthopedic surgeon who did the ORIF to schedule me for hardware removal. He refused, saying "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

I had one of Dr. Schroeder's partners remove the metal plate and 8 screws. The morning after the surgery, I woke up feeling as flexible as al dente pasta, rather than the Tin Man in need of an oil can. It was remarkable.

Oh gosh. This is so pitiful - people injured by the very ones who were suppose to be helping.

Just as pitiful; good hearted, well-meaning doctors who followed the protocols truly trying to help their patients. I’m so grateful there are those who figured out they were taught wrong and were willing to make a change. That takes humility and valuing truth over anything else. Grateful for those dedicated professionals- we need your expertise.

Thank you so much for telling us about these issues from your own experience and those of whom you are connected to.

I've been partially down this road. I had a titanium implant with an abutment screw made of Argen 86 creating a battery in my mouth. I also had a titanium pin in a toe. Biological dentist did a Clifford Reactivity Materials test to determine if I was sensitive to titanium or zirconia. It said I wasn't. The Argen 86 abutment screw was replaced after 9 years with a zirconia screw. I now wished I had had the entire implant removed and replaced along with the pin in my toe.

Dr. Scott brought me a step closer to the realization that I was suffering from metal poisoning. If you are experiencing unexplained symptoms, you may want to check into this possibility. I am going to begin my recovery by having all metal removed from my mouth. I have tried every other possibility, with no improvement. In fact, my health has been declining for two years, following a rod being placed in my right leg, and a root canal a few months later.

I had a severe broken neck and had surgery 4 years ago here in Chile. The surgeon put in two metal plates and 6 screws. The surgeon told me the plates were titanium but never said anything about the screws. Since the surgery I have been progressively having neuropathy problems. The pain and numbness has grown from my hands and arms to my legs and feet. It seems as if my muscles are always tight. I also am loosing all my energy. I can be in bed 12 hours and still be tired.

I’m on Gabapentin and tramadol. Nothing seems to work to stop the pain including morphine. I’ve done physical therapy, used every holistic medicine and acupuncture. One other monkey wrench is I had implants in my mouth just before I broke my neck. And I don’t know what the implant screws are made of.

This was a great interview and maybe points to the problem I have.

I'm a holistic chiropractor. I had numerous patients who experienced almost immediate, severe neurological sequellae following titanium implants (hip, dental, even a titanium dental bridge). There was no other diagnoses given for any of those patients. No positive lab findings for any of them. The only differential diagnosis I could come up with was a titanium sensitivity.

My biologic dentist removed all my amalgams as safely as they can be removed and I will forever be grateful. It did cost a small fortune.

A good friend felt as though he was dying, slowly. Lost all energy, uncomfortable daily, couldn’t sleep— you name it. His wife, a surgeon, took him to every doc she could think of. Eventually all the docs and she— began to think he was psycho rather than medically ill. He would up in Germany were removed all amalgam fillings. They said he’s feel better in a week or so. He felt like a new person within 2 hours!!! He was practically doing cartwheels, so much so that his wife, by now a total

skeptic of his ailments and a total

believer in strictly western medicine, had hers removed as well! She hasn’t even felt sick but noticed an improvement in her overall sense of well being. They’ve both become

firm believers in the RIFE machine, several

other crazy sounding machines, grounding, eastern herbal medicinals and all things “woo-woo”. His entire issue was amalgam fillings and an extreme sensitivity to 5G. *He knew the DAY my hubs installed some techno thing to speed up our internet. He called days later asking whether we had installed anything 5G, saying he could no longer sleep on that side of his house! We are neighbors.

👏👏👏👏👏👏👏🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩❤❤❤❤

I knew the effects of the Dentistry industry around mercury amalgamation and considered orthopedic metals to probably be harmful, but necessary.

I had know idea there was actually a Dr discussing it publicly though. That you so much for sharing Scott Schroeders work with us. And tjank you for YOUR tireless work to enlighten others the damage done in the name of "healthcare".🙏

Emeramide for mercury chelation: https://emeramed.com/emeramide-safe-metals-chelator/ completely fascinating compound. I have only one mercury filling left and fortunately no other hardware but I’d lose it if I had the opportunity.

Thank you for this another precious post! Just wonder about the history of the 'amalgam' solutions for humans, given that science must have known about the toxicity of that substance for a LONG time... Maybe it goes back to the bugs again, those who methylate the mercury to neurotoxic methylmercury (MeHg = Hg(II)) and the good ones which do the opposite demethylate to the relatively inert oxidized Hg(0)... And only the charged species react with proteins changing them completely. On top of it the bad Hg(II) is also binding to Thymine Bases in DNA... Zn does it very well too, but not if HgII is around (the same group in periodic table)... It's like the huge heavy Goliath against the tiny David (Zn), the same valence charge against the mass. If anyone is resposible for this crime, it must be chemists, that why Andreas Noack is gone. Just miss his lectures, a lot.
