I know that I have mercury issues and I'm searching for the best protocol, but I need to tell you about my experience.
My dentist turned the air blue with mercury when he took a high speed drill to one of my amalgams. I didn't realize that he was going to do that. I didn't have any noticeable symptoms and a couple of years later, I started the Brownstein Iodine protocol.
About six weeks into it, my hair started falling out like crazy and while it's slowed down, I'm still losing hair.
From what I've read, I believe that the Iodine riled up the mercury in my tissues and displaced it...especially to my head/scalp.
IODINE DOES NOT CHELATE MERCURY. It can rile things up, but it cannot grab on and escort it out of the body.
