Mercury Chelation And Candida

August 13, 2019

Greetings! Greetings! It’s Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand,
author of Candida Crusher, and formulator of the CanXida range of products. Thank you again for looking at my video. Today we’re going to talk about mercury chelation
and Candida. Do I have to get all my fillings out? Do I need to get a mercury chelation? This is a very interesting question, and some
of my views are quite controversial on this matter. So, I was one of those people about 25 years
ago that had all his amalgam fillings removed a long time ago now when a lot of people thought
it was a load of bologna that mercury had really no bearing on making you sick. My doctor thought I was an idiot. My dentist thought I was a fool, so I had
to track down a dentist that really was good at removing fillings. They would use a rubber dam and do a proper
job. Back then, it was pretty hard to get really
good composite or white fillings, and a lot of my fillings broke which had to get replaced
and I ended up with a lot of dental problems as a consequence. Today that’s a different matter. Maybe you’re one of these people that really
believes that mercury is the main source of your Candida. Well, don’t jump straight into this hoop like
a lot of people do. Some practitioners that you’re going to go
to, some doctors or naturopaths or chiropractors, and even some integrated or functional medicine
doctors will really hone in on mercury as being the key problem. Now I call those doctors one trick ponies. Everything is a mercury problem. We’ve got some Lyme disease doctors. You’ve got a hemorrhoid? Lyme’s disease. You’ve got erectile dysfunction? Lyme’s disease. Your hair’s falling out? It’s got to be Lyme’s. Be careful not to fall into the trap of everything
is reduced down to a mercury problem. It may well not be. Mercury is certainly linked up with yeast
infection, but it’s the chicken or the egg. You’ve got to be careful. Don’t really go for the line that all your
mercury fillings have to be removed, because then your Candida will magically disappear. That can often be promoted by someone who
wants to make a couple thousand bucks out of you. Here’s my take on it. Get a hair analysis done with a reputable
lab like Doctor’s Data for example in Chicago. There are many different hair analysis labs
around in America. There are some very good ones. So, get some hair taken from the nape of the
neck and send it in and get that checked out for mercury levels. You may even want to do a urinary provocation
test where you can take certain substances internally like DMSA for example a sulfhydryl
compound that will bind to mercury and then you’ll pee it out and then the urine can be
analyzed to see how much of a spill there is. You can also get what I did. You can get an IV DMPS. A small amount gets put into the blood, and
that’s a little bit more aggressive form of sequestering mercury, chelating it. Pulling it out and then dumping it into the
bloodstream and then urine gets analyzed. But I can tell you this: You can give me a
100 people and I can do a provocation on a 100, and every single one is going to come
back with stuff. With mercury, probably some arsenic, lead,
probably other metals. Does that mean all of those people have got
a Candida problem because they’re showing mercury in their urine? We live in a world that’s full of chemicals. We can’t separate ourselves from the environment
that we’re in, from the air, from the water, from the food. If you’re eating any commercial poultry, you’ll
have arsenic in your body. If you live near any kind of highway or road,
you’ll have cadmium in your body. Where does this crap come from? Well, I learned that cadmium is a metal used
in the manufacturing of tires, so if you live near a road or anywhere near a highway, especially
a big highway and you’re breathing in the air, which you probably are unless you walk
around with gas canisters on your face all day. You’re probably going to be breathing in the
air, so you’re probably going to have some cadmium levels. If you’re around any kind of factory, you’ll
have elevations of various compounds in your body: nickel, cadmium, mercury. In America they discovered not that long ago
that a lot of the internal lakes were being poisoned by mercury and the environmental
protection agency started to work out why: because they weren’t sufficiently stopping
the mercury emissions from cremation chambers. The average person who is cremated has got
up to 13 different fillings. So of course that mercury gets vaporized and
if you cremate enough people, you’re going to have mercury shifting in the air and being
dumped in the water. So, the point I’m making is you can’t separate
yourself from heavy metals. They’re around you all the time. The question is: how do you know that the
heavy metals are causing the problem with your body? That they’re actually invoking a mercury response? Then some people will say, “Bakker, you’re
a fool. Everyone needs detoxing. We all need to be squeaky clean. We shouldn’t have any chemicals in our bloodstream
at all.” Well, I’m sorry, but we can’t live like that
on planet Earth. Maybe if we shift over to Pluto or Mars or
some other country or world or whatever, we might be free from this stuff, but living
here you’ll never be free of chemicals. You can take precautions. You can get the amalgam fillings taken out,
but how long will it be before other chemicals come into the body? So, what am I trying to say to you? I’m saying be careful and don’t jump into
the hoop that I did is to spend $4,000 or $5,000 to get all your fillings removed and
think that was the silver bullet. Now, that I think back, it was a very small
part of the silver bullet for me to get well. The biggest part of my recovery from Candida
was understanding the link between my shitty job and my crappy personal relationships with
people and some of the crap I was eating by making changes. But not only that, it was also then working
with many thousands of patients for many, many, many years and seeing the links. Multiple links with lifestyle, diet, and stress
and toxins being consumed for example and their outcomes when it came to Candida or
small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. So mercury certainly is linked up with Candida,
but don’t see it as the be it-end-all. Don’t think that if you get all your amalgams
replaced, and get all composite fillings put in that ka-ching! you wake up in the morning
and “Oh my God, everything’s so beautiful! I feel amazing!” It doesn’t work like that. It’s an expensive process. It may help you. It’s helped some of my patients as part of
their recovery, but then again they made a lot of changes on many fronts, so it’s very
hard to tell you, “Yes, it’s the biggest thing you need to do is get your fillings taken
out.” I tend to put it on the backburner for a while
and say to people, “Let’s look at your lifestyle. Let’s look at how long you stay up on the
internet. Let’s look at the kind of relationships you’ve
got with people you’re close to or people you work with. Let’s look at the kind of shitty foods that
you’re eating, how much alcohol you’re drinking.” These are the more important things to me,
because we cannot separate ourselves from our environment. We can clean ourselves up, but ultimately
toxins will come back in again to a high degree. So that’s my take on it for what it’s worth. Do the homework. Do the hair test. Do the provocation test. Work out the costs of this. Work out also the cost to you in terms of
making broad sweeping lifestyle changes and job changes, career changes, diet changes,
attitude changes. All these things to me are more important
than getting some fillings pulled out of your mouth and thinking that it’s Alice in Wonderland. You’re going to live in this fantasy land
of fantastic health because you’ve done that one blooming thing. That’s my take on it. I hope you’ve enjoyed this video, and I’ll
be very curious to see some of the comments I get. I might have to turn some of the comments
off because some of the comments I’ve been getting have not been too good. It’s incredible how many trolls are out there
and some of the hate mail I’ve received from people. But folks, I’m doing all this for free. I don’t expect anything in return. Give me your views on what it was like when
you got all your amalgams taken out. Did you wake up 500 pounds lighter, 10 years
younger and the whole world changed for you? I’d like to hear about it. Thanks for tuning in. Don’t forget to click on the link below if
you haven’t got my report, and we’ll catch up next time.

    Thank you for all the good information you are giving us. I am following the Andrew Cutler Protocol, and I think that a lot of my problems are from yeast. I had a test done and my stools showed yeast. Also the spit test is very obvious. I try to eat gluten, dairy, and sugar free. When I eat 1 banana I already have more symptoms. I also have a lot of brain fog / dizzyness. My blood test shows low neutrophils, so I think my immune systems is low. I take vitamine C, D3, E, A, magnesium, zinc and some B12/B6/folic acid. Recently I started taking Biotin, because I have heard it would help for candida in high amounts. At this moment I take 3 mg/day, but they say you can take like 30 to 50 mg.
    This week I tried coconut oil : 2 x 1/2 teaspoon to start with. After 3 days I got terrible brain fog, more than before. Very weak legs, and this is so annoying because you cannot do anything. Standing and walking around a lot is difficult. I think it was the coconutoil that did this. Also pain in my intestines for a few days now. 3 days after using the coconutoil, I still feel very weak in my legs + brain fog/dizzyness.
    I just do not know how to handle this anymore. It seems that the mercury toxicity (12 amalgams for 30+ years : all removed 9 months ago) makes it impossible to get rid of candida. (I did a hairtest too)
    Where do I start with this battle against candida?? I am chelating with Alpha Lipoic Acid. Frequent small doses.
    As I see your other video, it also might be my liver …. I remember my doctor thinking it would be my liver. Weak legs, brain fog… after eating coconut oil could this be a liver problem ?

    Hi Eric,let me share with you my story with fillings.I developed serious eczema on upper part of my body in 2014.From January 2015 I started proper diet with no sugar,no alcohol , with good fats,juicing,probiotics,digestive enzymes,…but my eczema didn't get better at all.So after 9 months with this diet I decided to get rid of amalgam fillings .Within 5 days my eczema developed on my legs and on my face where I had it already it became wet. It simply got much worse overall .I expected improvement ,but the opposite happened.I had 9 fillings,got rid of only 4 of them in one day and was going to do the rest in a month,but didn't do it.The dentist used a rubber in my month,but it still probably got into my body.In your opinion what could be the reason my eczema got much worse within 5 days after I got rid of the fillings?

    No improvements since then at all, so 6 months I got tested for candida with positive results,but with no leaky gut.I started your protocol with supplements only a week ago as I knew I would go on holiday ,Xmas ,etc…

    Thanks ,

    There is world between the intoxication that we get from the environment and the intoxication that get from of piece of lead/mercury in our mouth. Removing filling won't change anything concerning candida but it's a good start. Removing my filling has really changed a lot in my personnality and it was really quick. Without that i wouldn't have been able to do the necessary (discipline, organization, determination etc…) concerning my unhealthy life style which was feeding my candida (as you mentionned in your video). In the book of Andy Cutler, he explains well what mercury does to our personnality.

    I've just finished removing my amalgams over a period of 10 months, I'm not expecting this to be a miracle cure, but considering some of these fillings were probably 20 years old I know they will have been off gassing quite a lot. I've had the hair test done and am awaiting the results of that before I do anything else. I'm on the MEVY diet and have been now for 8 weeks with very little change, but only on the Canxida supplements for 5 days so not expecting changes yet, it'll take
    time and I know that. Incredibly fed up with headaches, sinus pressure, dizziness etc, have hope after buying your book that it will eventually improve. I'm enjoying your videos in the meantime.

    Hello I have a Question. Can a gastroenterologist doctor help with candida? Is this the best way to fight with the candida or I need to search other doctor?

    I beleave that's Mercury are related to the immunitary sistem's and not directly to Candida Are a few chelation treatments that's can solves the problems.Heavy metals are more related to bacteria's problems.i telling you now a littles secrets but not to be keepings to yourselves:cooking inside stainless steels using oils,this because the nickel it's lipo solubles,are very harmful for Prostate,in a manners that's increasing bacteria's and possibility of developing a cancer.

    I think it might be because of the toxins and standard of your ability to clean.

  • Reply Agustin Ortega April 8, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    One of the main problems is pollution from oil gasoline and the stuff cars uses that needs to be changed and different Healthcare like chelation regular basis organic food and all that

    I got my mercury fillings out in 2000. I already was struggling with food sensitivities but within one year I started having chronic diarrhea and it took me many months more before I figured out my food sensitivities had gotten worse… Now I became sensitive to any of the high sulfur foods… Like eggs and onions and garlic and all the brass a car and cruciferous vegetables.

    I thought I went to a dentist had good practices about removal, but I’m not sure if he gave me and alternate air source over my nose
