The issue is that the most mercury vapor exposure is during placement
, and during removal
. So, you must detox the exposure by excreting the mercury or storing the mercury. Plus, the mercury fillings leach mercury vapor every day, every meal, especially with hot liquids and chewing. Joy, I know, I have 10 mercury fillings in still.
The body stores excess mercury, if we are not able to excrete it effectively. Some of us have poorer detox ability than others, this depends upon nutrient deficiencies to a large extent, also depends upon toxin exposure and genetics. So, you may have mercury stores from when the fillings were placed
(adrenal, thyroid, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, candida, sacral dimple, tongue, allergies, asthma, and mental health issues seem to be associated with poorer detox ability).
The excess mercury circulates in the body (during and after placement and removal) to be excreted (or stored in the organs, brain and gut). As the (daily) mercury exposure is lessened (after removal), old stored mercury
is released for excretion. Apparently, there is a big dump of old stored mercury about 3-6 months after removal. And again after about a year, per my understanding.
Therefore, it is probably safer to conceive with the mercury fillings in place, than to conceive within 12-18 months after removal, especially if you have any detox or nutrient issues. However, we also excrete our current toxin exposures and old toxin exposures into fetus and breastmilk. btdt too.
If I had known about the risk to my fetus, I would not have conceived with 10 mercury fillings present. Ds has ASD behaviors. And I know I shared my mercury issues with him. We also have genetic variables which increase the poor detox of mercury though.
