Do I need to eat or drink anything special when having my amalgam fillings removed?
At Evolve Dental Healing Holistic Dentist we recommend an at home detox protocol for use during and after safe amalgam removal. The detox program is designed to work with and upgrade your body’s natural detoxification processes.
However, if you have a lot of health issues or sensitivities we like you to also be supported by a naturopath or integrative medicine GP, nutritionist or similar.
The reason we recommend nutritional protocols is to help your body offset and cope with the mercury that will dump from your body as the amalgams get removed.
The types of things we recommend are foods high in sulphur, good quality proteins, and full of antioxidants. It is similar to an alkalising or anti-inflammatory diet with no processed foods, caffeine, gluten, diary, sugar or alcohol. We also recommend specific supplements, vitamins and minerals to support you through the process.
