      I just learned that amalgams which have mercury could cause T. I have one in my mouth exactly where I have my T. I am going to see a holistic dentist to remove it. It has to be removed very carefully not to get more mercury in the body. This is a correlation between mercury and T. So I also avoid tuna at all cost and am taking chlorella to remove mercury, along with cilantro and other supplements. Does anyone have any experience with this?

      Yes I have direct experience of this Cookie. My records confirm that the day I got my Mercury fillings was the day I got my Tinnitus!

      This issue has been discussed before. Please see this previous thread on how to go about this and feel free to ask me any questions you might have,

      Intravenous Vitamin C is by far the best way to get rid of Mercury in the body and it passes the blood brain barrier too so it get's rid of it from the brain as well. It's extremely effective and very quick too.

      Also if the Holistic dentist you are going to does not follow the protocols outlined in the IAOMT guidelines below I would very strongly urge you to find another Dentist. There are alot of cowboys out there even in Holistic dentistry.

      Thanks Molan for your response. I have been researching mercury for a long time. I have had vit c drips with glutithione and done detoxes, taken chlorella and cilantro. I have had to stay away from electricity since I became electromagnetic sensitive. I was exposed to mercury from some chinese teas and herbs, in addition to my amalgams. In one day I got T, numbness and tingling all over, brain fog, and EMF sensitive. I am now about 75% better. I have to get rid of the last amalgam.

      That's really good Cookie! Vitamin C IV's are amazing for detoxing mercury from the body. Hope you can get rid of the last filling soon and be on your way to better health. If only we knew at the time huh? Hindsight is a wonderful thing but something like Mercury should never have been put in people's mouths anyway. I'm shocked that it's 2013 now yet it still hasn't been banned yet. From what I gather it's going to be phased out sooner rather then later but how many more people will be damaged before that happens?

      Hopefully more and more people will research things like this before they have any medical treatment done. Something I deeply regret not doing myself when I was told I needed fillings.

      First time: Noise 2nd Time: Ototoxic drug
      Where does one go to have a vitamin C IV drip? To a naturopath?
      I too have one more mercury amalgam, and when I finally have it removed, I'd like to detox in the best way possible.
      Cookie, I hope you begin to feel better when you have that last amalgam removed. Thanks for starting this thread!

      Karen I was fortunate enough to have my IV done at a Holistic dentist. Actually had one while I was getting my dental work done + 3 more infusions over the course of several days. The IV I had also contained Glutathione,
      Lipoic Acid, Vitamin B's Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium. I really cannot speak highly enough of them.

      Maybe you can contact my Dentist and ask if they could guide you to someone who follows their protocols in America? I know they train people up and certify them. Here is there website

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

      There are other Dentists as well who give Vitamin C infusions in the states. The question is how to find them!

      I went to a nutritionist in Connecticut in the USA but it was very expensive $200 a pop. But it included all the items Molan addressed. I did 4 of them. I am hoping the dentist I'm seeing next week does the IV. He does put the client on a detox. There are also medications that are used to remove mercury. I have done many detoxes. They do help. There are many websites of naturopathic dentists that remove amalgams. It shouldn't be hard to find one in your area.

      I was under the impression that while removing amalgam fillings, that its the
      vapour of mercury while drilling that is mostly absorbed and any amalgam accidentally
      swallowed is very poorly absorbed in the digestive system, and since its bound to silver there
      really is no abosrption.

      Mercury vapour in itself though is a very big problem. It is released on daily basis if you have amalgams in your mouth and accumulates in the brain, organs and tissues. Check out this video below from 2:25

      SMOKING TEETH = POISON GAS


      After just 30 days a disturbing amount of mercury had attached it self to all those parts of the sheep. You need a detox to get rid of all the Mercury that has accumulated in the body because removing the fillings will do nothing for what has already been absorbed in the body.

      I have been taking Sun Chlorella to detox and remove mercury. I am feeling much better already. Energized. With glowing skin. And my tingling and numbness from the mercury is almost gone. If only the T would go.

      hi folks,

      new here but not new to tinnitus, unfortunately. 55 years young and suffered with T for a year and a half now - 24/7. mine resulted from a loud concert to which i have about 5 different noises i hear daily ever since.

      i am curious cookie and molan - did removing the amalgams and detoxing do anything positive for your tinnitus? i have seen a specialist in holistic medicine just last week - she came highly recommended to me and this was exactly where she wanted to start for me to get on the road to recovery. she believes my body was already poisoned by the toxicity in my blood and brain and the concert was an event that pushed my condition over the edge - resultiong in T. she highlighted the safe removal of my silver fillings (and the mercury) from a dentist who specializes in this, then a detox program through chelation, combined with specific nutritional supplements for my body throughout this process. she figures it will take about 9 months, which is nothing imo if it works. she also wants my triglycerides level in my blood to come down considerably - to improve circulation to the micro capillaries of the brain and inner ear and increase oxygen levels in the blood through better diet and more exercise. i get it about the nutrition and all - it makes good sense to me. but i am not as sold on the idea of getting all my fillings replaced - this is a big deal and carries some risks, no? the last thing i need is to make a bad situation (with my T) worse.

      thoughts from any and all is appreciated.

      Hi Bulldog,

      I'll let Molan & Cookie reply to you about the mercury but I wanted to ask you about the different noises you hear. I also hear different stuff, there's a lot of electrical sounding darting sounds like when a radio is being tuned it. Do you get that at all? Thanks.

      louise,

      yes, i get several different sounds - usually what i wake up to is what i'll have for the remainder of that day. the varying sounds include (as best as i can describe them) ...
      1. hissing (like recording tape hiss) - differing volumes
      2. crackly static
      3. tinkling/pinging (the easiest one to adjust to)
      4. slinky (expanding/contracting coil)
      5. high pitched monotone (the most disturbing)
      6. egg-beater
      i have found that means of dealing with this affliction (through conventional medical wisdom) is vastly lacking in consistency and protocol. there are as many so-called ways to treat T as there are names in the phone book - none of which offering any measurable certainty as to the end result. the reason for that is the source of the problem still remains shrouded in mystery - if the cause remains undefined, then a solution remains undefined as well. it's my personal belief that tinnitus itself is not a physical problem - moreso it is a symptom related to a physiological problem that exists within that individual - which is part of the reason why treatments are so varied in their effectiveness and basically so elusive. treating a "symptom" will lead us nowhere, whereas treating the cause(s) of the symptom is where the solution will be found and why it varies from person to person. in my case, i have high triglycerides in my blood, resulting in poorer blood circulation, especially in micro cappilary parts of my brain, including blood flow within the inner ear. the trauma of a loud concert was really the tipping point to which that part of my brain could no longer function as it needed to - hence the onset of tinnitus. i believe the tinnitus i hear is a symptom of a physiological problem that exists within me. My blood is affected by diet (amongst other things incl. drugs etc) - and routinely changes in it's composition and acidity, as does my tinnitus in terms of volume and type of sound. i believe that the solution to my tinnitus will mean finding a solution to the blood abnormalities that flow within me, as well as the way in which that blood flows.

      Homeopath doctors believe that the body has a means to capably repair most damages we do to it, provided we can assess what the damages are and are diligent about what we put in our body (and remove from our body) to help the body repair those damages. I believe they are generally correct about this. however, this issue of the mercury amalgam removal seems to be a topic where there seems to be no clear course to take when it comes to treating tinnitus. well-educated minds are divided on their opinions. hence my question posed today ... hopefully those with something to offer on this subject can chime in and we can discuss further.

      I removed about 10 amalgams a few years ago by a regular dentist which was a big mistake. I have one left and am going next week to holistic dentist to remove it and detox. So I am not sure what he will suggest but I do know that amalgams and mercury is related to T. I'll have to let you know what happens. But today I called Quantum Nutrition and they also think mercury is causing my T. I also have other symptoms like numbness and tingling, skin burning, twitching and brain fog. The last three are now gone. I have 3 sounds in my head-pulsating hissing, crackling (which Graphites homeopathic drops take it away on a daily basis) and clunking which will stop if I touch the artery on my neck.. I did a detox last month from Young Living oils and my T was so low I hardly heard it. And then it came back. So now I will remove the last amalgam and detox again and hopefully it won't come back this time. My T also started 1 1/2 years ago. I was sitting on the couch and my arm fell asleep and the T came and never went away. Though it is better then worse and I have 3-4 good days a week. I mean the T is a 3 not an 8.

      thx for the feedback cookie - so if you got your T about a year and a half ago, what do you think brought it on? also, if the mercury was in fact the problem, wouldn't one expect to have gotten the tinnitus before your amalgams were removed a few years ago? or did you just have the amalgams removed and no de-tox following the removal? it sounds as though you believe the de-tox has made a significant improvement in your T volume, correct?

      this is a big decision i have to make - the tinnitus can be unbearable some days but the last thing i need to do is make it worse by sitting in a dentists chair and drilling the damn things out - i know that i will suffer with the sound and vibration of the drill alone.

      Hello Gary, I talked about my experiences with Mercury and Tinnitus in more detail in this thread from last year. Please see below,

      https://www.tinnitustalk.com/threads/heavy-metal-poisoning-can-cause-tinnitus.292/

      Short answer is no it did nothing for my actual Tinnitus but I have not suffered from any ear pain or ear infections since. The mental fogginess I had disappeared and I can certainly think and relax much easier then before. So have my chest pains, joint pains and headaches that I used to get. I saw getting the Mercury removed as an investment for my long term health that has done wonders for my mental and physical well being. Provided you have them removed by a skilled and experienced Dentist who follows the correct protocols I would highly recommend getting them removed.

      If the correct protocols are not followed in the process of removing Mercury the Dentist can actually cause an increase in the Mercury levels of a patients blood. I have read reports in the worst cases this can actually bring on Tinnitus in some people who didn't have it before. In some cases in can cause even more severe problems. I would only ever recommend a dentist who follows the IAOMT protocols in this link below,

      Thanks Gary.

      You've got a good undersanding of your own T I think. Do you have hearing loss?

      I think the best place for Mercury removal in the UK is Munro-Hall dentists.

      molan - thank you for reply. i do have a well respected homeopath dentist that has been referred to me for the safe removal of these fillings however because it is the tinnitus i seek relief from, that is the reason i am considering this procedure. i have looked around the internet and thus far, haven't seen too many reports that suggest a person's tinnitus was helped by removal of the amalgams - but maybe, i haven't found those stories yet. my homeopath doctor is convinced that my tinnitus cannot be dealt with properly until i get these amalgams removed and de-toxed from there. this is a big decision for me - i have several silver fillings that would need replacement and i don't like the idea of having the drill working on me for such a long period of time, given how sensitive my tinnitus is to vibration and external high frequency noise. are you aware of anyone who's tinnitus was helped by the removal of their amalgams?

      Louise - i have some relatively minor hearing loss in the higher frequencies in one ear, but the tinnitus i experience is in both ears.

      I personally have not read of anyone's Tinnitus improving after having their amalgams removed. Mine certainly didn't but if there is a hope for recovery your body would need to be at it's best. That is going to be pretty difficult if you are being poisoned by Mercury everyday with it accumulating in your brain, organs and other tissues.

      I fully appreciate why you might be apprehensive about the Dental drill. I don't have any experience of it personally but what about going to a Dentist who uses a laser drill instead? Would that be an option?

      yeah, i would love a laser drill used except finding a dentist around here who is skilled in amalgam removal AND has laser drills is almost as hard to find as is a solution to my tinnitus ;)

      at this point, as much as i see benefit in removing these fillings, unless i can feel more confident this process will result in an improvement to my tinnitus, i likely won't move forward with this. i am seeing this homeopathic dentist next week for a consultation (he is about 2 hrs away from where i live) - i guess i will decide from there.

      I went to the library and took out 5 books on amalgams and the dentists had strong arguements against amalgams. I would remove them. Detoxing is always good no matter if the T goes away or not. And diet has a lot to do with your T being low or high. I would look into that too. Good luck.

      I got the amalgam out but it didn't make any difference in my T. He discover that I have 3 crowns with metal in them that was also bothering me but I will wait to remove them another time.

      ... i have too many amalgams (10) that would need removal, and i would only do this if it would help my T - which by all accounts, it won't. the drill is bad news for my T so i need not make a bad thing worse.
