      I am finding more and more resources that indicate that heavy metal poisoning can cause tinnitus. Of course, this may not be the cause of your tinnitus, but ya never know! ;)

      So, I am now doing therapy for that possibility.

      Tooth fillings, fish, smoking, vaccinations, etc. can all contribute to this poisoning.

      Here are some links for you to do your own research.

      What are the Symptoms of Heavy Metal Toxicity?
      As Heavy Metals affect many organs and functions of the body, they elicit complaints and symptoms that are different from person to person and do not easily fit into the usual diagnostic categories. Therefore they often are difficult to diagnose. Here are some of the symptoms of chronic mercury toxicity:
      • Nervous System: Irritability, low concentration, memory loss, insomnia, depression, anxiety, tingling of the extremities, tremors, disturbed sense of smell and taste (metallic taste), unexplained burning sensation or numbness, pain, headaches, fatigue, tinnitus.
      • Immune System: Chronic or frequent viral, bacterial or fungal (Candida) infections, autoimmune disorders, allergies. The EPA has determined that methyl-mercury is a possible human carcinogen.
      • Cardiovascular: Abnormal heart rhythm, high blood pressure, cardiomyopathy.
      • Skin: Eczema, allergies.
      • Endocrine System: Hypothyroidism, hypoglycemia, adrenal disease, infertility.
      • Gastrointestinal: Food sensitivities, bacterial or fungal overgrowth, recurrent parasitic infections, abdominal cramps, irritable bowl symptoms.
      • Systemic: Premature aging, fatigue, fibromyalgia.

      I can confirm from personal experience that heavy metal poisioning can create the conditions necessary for some to contract Tinnitus.

      I have medical and Dental records that confirm the day I got my first Mercury fillings as a teenager was the day I got my Tinnitus. Teenagers seem to be much more sensitive to Mercury then adults it seems. Mercury fillings release Mercury vapour all the time from the tooth and where do you think it goes? It has been shown the penetrate the blood brain barrier and enters the brain and becomes attached to the organs especially the kidneys. If you want to see how easily fillings release mercury vapour see this video below,

      SMOKING TEETH = POISON GAS


      When you chew gum, drink hot liquids or after you eat the Mercury levels measured in a person's mouth are frightening. I would highly recommend people get them removed but it's important to get yourself detoxed as well otherwise you can actually make things worse. Here is a list of Dentists who specialise in Mercury removal. Don't just go to any dentist to remove them if they haven't been trained in the proper protocols.

      http://www.mercuryfreedentists.com/


      Unfortunetly removing these poisionous fillings does not cure Tinnitus unfortunetly. The best example I have heard is that of a River bursting it's banks and flooding the local area causing severe damage to your Car. Well you can remove the water and seal the river but your car will still be broken. Getting rid of the cause will not remove the damage but it will substantially improve your long term health. My theory for me is that the Mercury weakened my Immune system so much that it couldn't cope with keeping the germs and bacteria on my inner war under control. So they flourished and that is how I got my ear infection which is how I got my Tinnitus. I eventually got rid of the ear Infection but the Tinnitus remained. Got rid and detoxed from my Mercury fillings last year.

      My advice is to avoid heavy metal posioning at all costs and to regularly detox at least once a year to get rid of anything harmfull your body might have. Oh yeah and never get Mercury fillings!!

      Hi Calin, well first thing is first clearly the fillings must be removed otherwise any detox will only be tempory until the body is flooded with more mercury from them. The best home way to detox Mercury that I'm aware of is mega-dose Chlorella.

      For abit more in depth guide I think this page has some very good info,

      http://www.mercola.com/article/mercury/detox_protocol.htm

      However the number 1 way I have found for detoxing Mercury is Intravenous Vitamin C and Gluthothione. The science of it strongly suggests it is the quickist, safest and most effective way of removing toxic metals from the body. Trouble is not all Biological dentists offer this although some will definetly accomodate you if you request it. For more information I would recommend contacting the pioneers of this detox treatment they have called 'V-tox therapy'. Also you can buy their book 'Toxic Dentistry exposed' from their site. That book was a real eye opener for me.

      http://www.munro-hallclinic.com/

      They should be able to provide advice if you wanted to do this detox at another Biological dentist. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.

      Great! Thanks for sharing that information.

      I already take chorella - it is in my super greens powder that I take twice a day for my PH balance ...and just because.

      I am trusting the UST heavy toxins treatment... and since you say it will never go away due to the filings, I will just listen to this protocol regularly then and continue my super greens drink mix! ;)

      I think it would be interesting to study how many tinnitus sufferers with silver fillings have developed it.

      It depends though on how much Chorella you are taking. If you have lots of mercury in your body you need to be taking it in very high doses. Mercury is a potent Nerurotoxin and has a horrific effect on your body. I would strongly advice anyone to have any Mercury fillings they have removed and then be strongly detoxed. However I would only recommend one from this site,

      http://www.mercuryfreedentists.com/

      Your average local Dentist can make things much worse for patients if he/she does not used proper Mercury removal procedures. Many have not been given the proper training.

      What are the proper mercury removal procedures? I've just had dental work done, and two mercury fillings removed. I'd like to know what those procedures are, so I can suggest it next time.

      Yikes! I didn't know about all this! Thanks, Molan, you've done us all a great service today. I have only 1 more mercury filling left, and I'll talk to the dentist before it is removed.

      No problem Karen I'm happy to help!

      I have to say though if your Dentist dosen't have the appropriate equipment and isn't trained to perform safe Mercury removal I would strongly recommend going to a Dentist who is.

      Hopefully you can find one near you on,

      http://www.mercuryfreedentists.com/

      Whatever happens I strongly advise you to make 100% sure they are following the Mercury removal protocols as outlined by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.

      Thanks for the information, Jim, Molan, and Calin! I'm glad you brought this to everyone's attention. Scary stuff! Looks like a lot of us could use some heavy metals detox.

      Any members ever have chelation therapy? Did it make a difference in your tinnitus?

      I have just google heavy metal poisoning and tinnitus and this thread came up.

      I am even more convinced than ever that my tinnitus is caused by all the titanium implants I have in my mouth.

      Sad news is even though I am getting all 9 of them out but will not get rid of the tinnitus as the damage had already taken place, also having them removed is causing addition symptoms as the Central nervous system is thrown into confusion when they are removed as well

      My head feels like a pressure cooker with the ears being the steam and I have parathesia all over my scalp

      Looking at the above posts, it now does not seem like coincidence that when I had the first one put in 12 years ago I mysteriously acquired fibromyalgia and the IBS - so many things of the last 12 years now become clear, I was slowly poisoning myself

      Devasted.

      I also had Mercury fillings as a child too.

      Can't believe what I thought was looking after my teeth has caused this devastating condition

      I have left a voice mail with the Munro clinic whose details are above as they are not there at the moment

      I definitely want to detox but am not sure how to go about it.

      I am finding the who idea of metal toxicity terrifying.

      I can't understand why we are still being allowed to put metal in our mouth after all the issues with Mercury posisomg

      @Evian ...Only after being properly tested would you have sufficient information in order to be able to make an informed decision as to whether you should detox or not. In my case, I did.

      I went through chelation therapy back in the late 90's because of the high levels of mercury and aluminum in my system. It worked very well for me as far as reducing those levels. However, it had no effect on my T; nor did I expect that it would.

      That said, I first needed to be tested in order to identify which toxic metals were above a safe level. For that, I obtained a test kit that only required me to provide a hair sample. After a couple of weeks, I received a very detailed report with the results.

      Once I had that info, I had to locate a place that performed chelation therapy. It took about four months of chelation therapy (once a week) to get the levels down to safe level.

      Be very thorough in researching and selecting a lab. Anyway, you might find some useful information here to get you started :

      Cause:
      either noise induced, ear infection or medication
      I did a hair test and my mercury was quite low even though I have mercury fillings. and remember if fillings are to big they usually have to do a root canal to save the tooth and those are even more dangerous from what I have read... or have teeth taken out which can mess the jaw up as well...I have done a 30 day detox program from a chiropractor (which was expensive) and it did nothing for me as well... getting mercury fillings out is very expensive to have it done the right way ... my n ickel was high in my hair test but how accurate are these thing really???? if you color hair, it effects it, shampoo affects it... ect......
