English Tests in Relation with Amalgam

The metals in amalgam intensify each other in their effects; These

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, nervousness, changing moods of apathy and irritability, depressive mood, ataxia, paresis, paraesthesy, impaired vision and hearing, susceptibility to infections, anaemia, disorder of.cardial rhythm.

I. Test with chewing gum            .        '

Indication: to prove the amount of toxic metals from amalgam tooth 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). Realization:

saliva I: collect half a test tube (about 5 ml without foam) saliva II: After 2 hours without chewing - intensive chewing of gum on, 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.: ul < sail < salll <= 5^g/l) Severe toxic effects occur.at differences over 100 /xg/1 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,""amyotrophic 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 µ/l)

After removal of the fillings: Allergy, apathy, asthma, abdominal pain, colitis ulcerosa, eczema, gastritis, suceptibility

To infections, ischialgia,headache,

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 on 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.

Precautionary measures:

1.  Not in acute viral infections (which can be lengthened because
of zinc elimination)

2.  No alcohol (including beer) for 2 days (increases tiredness)

3.  Only to be repeated in longer 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 I for: Zn, creatinin

Urine II for: Hg, Cu, Sn, (Pb, Cd), creatinin

Valuation: Hg (after 3 mg DMPS/kg b.w.) up to 20 ìg/ g creatinin:

load by food. Over 50 ìg/g creat.:chronic intoxication.

Copper as a sign of poisoning with heavy metals varies

between 500-4500 µg/g creatinin. Therapy: After removal of amalgam fillings DMPS should be given

until symptoms vanish.

>     100 µg Hg/g creat. - Every 3 month

>     500 µg Hg/g creat. - every 6 weeks

Removal of amalgam in cases of above named failures under precaution of rubberdam and not with high speed turbine! 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 Mg/g creatinin (spontanously), lack of zinc is obvious. In cases of Hg-,

Pb-, Cu-, and Cd- poisoning it should be substituted until level of 400-600 /µg/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.
