In reply to Mercury poisoning and depression ?, posted by janejj on May 23, 2002, at 22:24:15

This is an interesting idea. I've sure heard alot about mercury amalgam fillings contributing to depression. I've been slowly replacing mine. When you say you never cleared it up, do you mean it was just hanging around in a puddle for years? Were you in contact with it, like smearing it on a body part, for any length of time?

I guess the question is, now what? There are ways of chelating the mercury out of the body. It's usually done in a holistically oriented doctor or naturopath's office and can be expensive. The antioxidant lipoic acid is supposedly good for it. Also, an Indian Ayurvedic remedy is to eat a teaspoon of fresh cilantro daily. There are also supplements you can take that say they leach the mercury out but you have to be careful because they could also circulate the mercury back into your bloodstream making it active.

Probably the best thing is to find an alternative type of doctor and discuss it with them. If indeed you were exposed over a period of time to raw liquid mercury it certainly didn't do you any good. Whether or not it's the culprit in your depression is probably doubtful, but then again who knows? - Barbara
