Posts like yours above are highly encouraging for folks like me...thank you. I decided to have all 14 of my Amalgams removed over a four-month period of time (which ended in the spring of 2008).
Since I had them all done in such a short time, and "un"safely, (let's just say that MY dentist did a HECKUVA lot of drilling!!!) I did have toxin-overload...including VERY swollen eyes, hair-loss, memory-loss, and slurred speech. I do wish I had done it slower, like one tooth at a time. Ah, learning the hard way.
(I personally NOW think my dentist did all the drilling because he's a sadist - there sure wasn't any rinsing or spitting on my part).
So, instead of trying the "fast" chelation approach, I'm allowing nature to take its course.
Improvement is slow, but it's better than no improvement at all!
