The risk is real – heavy metal poisoning exists in the Dothan area
Posted By Dr Nathan Pfister
A small amount of some metals – zinc, chromium, copper, iron, and manganese – is essential to functions of the human body. However, metals accumulate in soft tissues, building to harmful concentrations. The National Organization for Rare Disorders cites mercury as the second most common source of heavy metal poisoning, surpassed only by lead. Dothan area residents face a real threat from mercury exposure, and it resides just a few inches from the brain, 24/7/365.
Mercury is a potent neurotoxin. As a liquid or vapor, elemental mercury has a zero-oxidation state. That means that it blocks blood vessels, resulting in:
Impaired brain function
Sources of mercury exposure
The two primary sources of mercury bioaccumulation are contaminated food and amalgam dental fillings, and there is a surprising connection.
"Silver" fillings are actually made of about 50 percent elemental mercury, bound with silver, tin, and copper. Mercury vapor is released from chewing or other friction, and inhaled, absorbed, or ingested into the body. Conventional dental practices flush amalgam into public wastewater, where it makes its way to consumable seafood, and leaches into soil, contaminating produce.
Dr. Nathan Pfister is an accredited member of the IAOMT. He offers a biologically-sound alternative that contributes to the whole health of the patient. He utilizes the healthiest materials and techniques available for preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. The practice places only mercury-free composite resin fillings, with the option of ceramic restorations that do not contain Bisphenol or its derivatives. At the request of the patient (or in the course of necessary repairs), amalgam fillings are removed in accordance with strict IAOMT guidelines for patient safety, welfare of the staff, and environmental responsibility.
