High dose is only during amalgam removal.


Thanks Tobi for pointing out that too much selenium it toxic. Rokybird only recomends that dose, 600 mcgs for two days before and a few days after Amalgam remvoval. Then go back to about 200 mcgs.

Selenium is helpful, but it is not in any way a detox agent.

There are two things selenium does:

first, it binds very tightly to mercury and passivates it. Thus taking more
selenium reduces the level of "free" mercury that is bouncing around doing
damage.

second, there are some important enzymes in your body that require selenium.
Since mercury binds very tightly to selenium it interferes with these
enzymes. Taking more selenium lets your body make more of these enzymes.
Two of them are glutathione peroxidase and the enzyme which converts the
thyroid hormone T4 to the more active form T3.

Selenium is best taken in the selenomethionine form, and reasonable dosages
are 1-2 mcg per pound.
