Reversing Alzheimer's Disease
by Tom Warren
Mercury poisoning and toxic chemicals cause Alzheimer’s sufferers many common medical and mental problems.
Following is a listing of several conditions routinely seen in these patients:
2. Inexplicable explosive behavior.
3. Endogenous depression:
4. Emotional Instability.
5. Low stomach acid
6. Candida overgrowth
7. H-pylori (Helicobacter pylori)12
8. Excessive belching and flatulence
9. Putrefaction, parasites, flukes13, fungus, etc.
11. Chronic fatigue
12. Leaky gut syndrome
13. Food allergies and chemical sensitivities
14. Loss of the ability to control weight.
15. Poisoning of the liver
16. Dry flakey skin
17. Abnormal white cell blood count ranging from 10,000 to 22,000 mm³
18. Discoloration of the genital organs. Sometimes men report gray discoloration of the penis, testicles and gray arm pits. Women may notice the insides of the lips of the vulva are gray. All of the above areas should be light pink. In people with white complexions gray discoloration is definite confirmation of mercury toxicity. During mercury detoxification all of the above areas eventually become light pink.
The subclinical signs of mercury poisoning are as follows:
1. White spots on the finger nails (zinc deficiency). In pregnant women
white spots on the finger nails most often signify calcium deficiency.14
2. Hangnails (Folic Acid deficiency)
3. Inability to remember dreams (B-6 deficiency)
4. Cracks or holes on the tongue dentists call Geographic tongue. (B-3 and
5. White growth on the tongue (Candida overgrowth)
6. Frequent urination suggests mercury toxicity. It is also a marker for
7. A tendency to be exhausted, depressed, irritable, exhibit short term
memory problems, explosive outbursts of unexplained anger and impaired decision making capability and sometimes, incessant unfocused chatter (due to low level chronic mercury poisoning, Candida overgrowth, electrolyte imbalances, food allergies, leaky gut syndrome and chemical sensitivities)
There are many other subclinical signs of mercury poisoning, but these are the complaints that I most often hear from persons seeking information about short term memory loss.
The Park-Davis Continuing Pharmacy Education Course lists the early warning signs of Alzheimer’s Disease in the following manner:
* Memory loss affecting job or household skills
* Time/Place disorientation
* Language problems
* Difficulty with abstract thinking
* Poor judgment
* Misplacing things
* Suspiciousness, paranoia
* Increased appetite
* Loss of initiative
* Lethargy, Listlessness
* Personality changes
* Liability of mood
Compare Park-Davis symptoms with the above symptoms of chronic low level mercurial poisoning.
I would like to enter here a few words of prudence about the rapid and random removal of mercury fillings. There is a report from “Amalgam og Skydom” (Dental Amalgam and Disease) Oslo, Norway, 1993, by Dr. Harald J. Hamre that states If the patient is seriously ill, they are strongly advised against removing more than one or two small fillings at a time, with an interval of four to six weeks (multiple sclerosis, eight weeks) between amalgam removal sessions.
Removing all amalgam in a very short time is well tolerated by most healthy people, but has repeatedly led to devastating long-lasting or even permanent disease in sensitive individuals. The rationale behind the above statement stems from sudden alterations in the body chemistry from replacement of mercury-silver fillings, and changes in the electrogalvanic balance in the mouth that could affect brain and immunololgic functions (which is another reason biocompatibility testing is so important). A significant amount of mercury vapor is released when mercury-silver fillings are removed. The absorption of this vapor can result in a medical crisis for the neurologically impaired person.
Finding the Right Dentist
Before we begin: The most logical approach to dental treatment is no tooth is worth saving if it damages your immune system. If I were looking for a dentist, the first thing I would do, is call Dr. Hal Huggins (719) 548-1600 or the Well Mind Association (206)-547-6167 in Seattle,WA. If the patient is seriously ill, there is a very narrow margin for error in removing and replacing mercury-silver amalgam fillings. Dental detoxicologists and many mercury free dentists have specialized training to reduce the chances of permanent disability. It is the patient’s pocketbook that pays the bill and is the patient who will suffer the consequences of iatrogenic disease. If there was ever a time for the patient to take charge his or her own recovery program, this is it! For a preview of the quality of dental work you can expect, have your teeth cleaned before spending a dime on x-rays, or allowing the dentist do any other work. It is unusual to find a skillful hygienist working for a incompetent dentist. If the hygienist takes the time to carefully clean the patient’s teeth, he or she is working for a dentist who demands high standards and will do excellent work himself.
Ask the dentist
The Correct Answer Should Be
1. Does he place mercury fillings? No
2. Does he do root canals? No
3. Does he remove amalgam fragments and tattoos15? Yes
4. Does he treat cavitations? Yes
5. Does he do materials biocompatibility testing?
6. Does he do consecutive 7 day appointments? 23 No
If the patient is seriously ill, and the dental office cannot answer these questions correctly, leave. Find another dentist. Some dentists claim they can safely place root canals22. Researchers report the bacteria on an extracted root canal tooth is so toxic, that if a dentist were to scrape the surface of enough root canals (in the area that would normally be below the gum line) to collect one cupful of toxin it would be enough poison to kill every person on the earth.
I do not know how to be more explicit than that, but this issue is too important not to make “the second effort.” If I had any chronic disease that my physicians could not determine the underlying cause for, especially mental problems, I would get rid of every root canal and cavitation in my mouth as-well-as every mercury-silver amalgam filling, down to the smallest tattoo and amalgam fragment within the gums and in the jawbone.
I would insist on a biocompatibility blood test before allowing “any dental materials” to be inserted into my mouth. Dentists who ignore materials biocompatibility testing do not seem to understand that, after a persons immune system has been compromised, especially Alzheimer’s sufferers, they are treating a patient who can be allergic to almost anything. Cerebral allergic brain-fog and brain-fag reactions are involved in the Alzheimer’s disease process and seventy per cent of all the materials that dentists use can cause allergic response in sensitive people. Don’t jump from the frying pan into the fire. Do it right, or don’t do it at all.
Disease Induced From Root Filled Teeth
In the early 1900s Dr. Frank Billings16 introduced the focal infection theory17 that 95 per cent of all focal infections in the body came from decayed teeth and infected tonsils. The National Dental Association18 appointed Dr. Weston Price, a dental researcher, and a team of 60 scientists and physicians to do a study that proved bacteria and toxins within dentin tubules19 of teeth and cavitations20 (areas of bone necrosis21) of the jawbone spread throughout the body. The method by which the bacteria and toxins migrated was not determined and the theory was eventually discounted. With the discovery of penicillin,22 further interest in the project waned. This paper presents the first reproducible evidence of how these bacteria and toxic debris migrate.
