Amalgam Tests in Relation
The metals in-amalgam intensify each other in their effects; Thes are the most important ones:
Tin: increasing weakness, apathy, neuralgia, pain sensitivity, paresis, undulating pain in the gastro intestinal tract, headache, hoarseness, cough, sensibility to chill and changing weather, paleness.
Copper: clonic cramps, gripes, impaired vision, difficulty in breathing, paraesthesy, tremor, weakness, anal cramps, constipation, grinding of teeth, allergy, liver damage.
Silver: anxiety, forgetfullness, blocking of thought processes, encephalomalacia, headache, vertigo, defectiveness to stress, mental weakness, impaired ligaments muscles
and joints, chondrogenesis, vertebral pain, rheumatism.
Mercury apathy, headache, gastro intestinal disorders, vertigo, tremor, forgetfullness, sleeping trouble, muscular asthenia, vertebral pain, allergy, nervohsness, changin moods of apathy and irritability, depressive mood, ataxia, paresis, paraesthesy, impaired vision and hearing, susceptibility to infections, anaemia, disorde of cardial rhythm.
Test with chewing gum
Indication: to prove the amount of toxic metals from amalgam toot fillings in normal saliva (saliva I), respectively what is abraded by chewing (saliva II). - in relation to acute toxic status in the body (urine I).
saliva I: collect half a test tube (about 5 ml without foam)
saliva II: After 2 hours without chewing - intensive chewing of gum an the filled teeth, collecting saliva in a second tube (5-10 minutes, same amount)
send to laboratory: saliva I for: Hg, Sn, Ag
saliva II for: Hg, Sn, Ag, pH
urine I for: Hg, Sn, Zn
Valuation: the amalgam fillings are of inferior quality or poisonous if saliva II (after chewing) contains much more than urine or saliva I (norm.: uI sah salII <= 51.12/1) Severe toxic effects occur at differences over 100 ggil Hg
II. DMPS-test (Dimaval)
Indication: in cases of severe nerval or immune deficiencies the depots of heavy metals in the organs should be treated and at the same time measured in urine by giving an antidot. The test is harmless and it is paid for by health
insurances if the symptoms indicate poisoning, because healing or amelioration of the chronic intoxication is to be expected. The test can be extended to prove sufferings from environmental poisons as lead and cadmium.
Before removal of fillings: AIDS, generalized allergy, amyotrophi lateral sclerosis, (partial) loss of vision or hearing, rhsythmic disorders of the heart, melanoma, multiple sclerosis (also not typical forms), paraestesy, high levels in chewing gum test (Hg 100, Sn 30 µg/l).
After removal of the fillings: Allergy, apathy,
pain, colitis ulcerosa, eczema, gastritis, suceptibility facial neuralgia, infertility.
Urine I: after drinking a fair amount of water - Fill test tube with urine .
DMPS: Injection: the exactest way of uptake which shows best results in elimination rate. ( available T.030/8176052). dosage: 3 mg/kg b.w.(about 1 ampulla Dimalval) intravenous capsulas: (without prescription at the chemist's) to be taken an empty stomach then further fasting for 2 hours. dosage: Test: 10 mg/kg b.w. (has about the same results as 1 ampulla). Therapy:3 mg/kg b.w. once every fortnight.
Urine II: With ampullas: after 30 -45 minutes.
With capsulas: after 2 hours, - in test tube.
1. Not in acute viral infections (which can be lengthened because of zinc elimination)
2. No alcohol (including beer) for 2 days (increase‘b tiredness)
3. Only to be repeated in langer intervals. (6-12 weeks with injection, 2 weeks with capsulas)
Side effects: extremely seldom allergic skin reactions,which pass over without therapy. Hyperventilation tetany during the injection can be prevented by superficial breathing.
Send to laboratory: Urine 1 for: Zn, creatinin
Urine II for: Hg, Cu, Sn, (Pb, Cd), creatinin
Valuation: Hg (after 3 mg DMPS/kg b.w.) up to 20 gg/ g creatinin: load by food. Over 50 gg/g creat.:chronic intoxication. Copper as a sign of poisoning with heavy metals varies between 500-4500 gg/g creatinin.
Therapy: After removal of amalgam fillings DMPS should be given until symptoms vanish.
100 gg Hg/g creat. - Every 3 month
500 ig Hg/g creat. - every 6 weeks
Removal of amalgam in cases of above named failures under precaution of rubberdam and not with high speed turbinel Alternatives: In cases of severe heavy metal poisoning, amalgam
should intermediately (until final inlays can be given) be
replaced by non metallic inlays. Ceramic fillings may later be a good alternative.
Zinc: When zinc in urine is less than 140 Ag/g creatinin (spontanously), lack of zinc is obvious. In cases of Hg-,
Pb-, Cu-, and Cd- poisoning itshould be substituted until level of 400-600 Ag/g creat. is reached.
Therapy: weekly 1 ampulla of Unizinc (i.v) or
3 times a day 1-2 dragees Unizinc two hours before the meals.
