    Since reading up alot on this site and others about curing candida I’ve come across alot of information regarding mercury poisoning. About 20years ago I had a permanent metal retainer fitted on my teeth which I still have on and I have two metal fillings in my mouth. I am wondering if this wss the cause. Also about 15 years ago I had terrible acne and I was put on a years course of Roaccutane (accutane) and I’ve heard of people having numerous side affects from taking it and it is now banned…any ideas on if these things would of given me Candida and messed up my whole life?

    Mercury poisoning is very unlikely, unless you’ve eaten lots and lots of tuna or other fish that’s high in the food chain, or you’ve been feeding off the land of a former mercury-processing unit. You may read a lot about supposed mercury problems on the Internet, but that’s not based on solid research; instead, it falls more or less into the conspiracy side of the spectrum.

    Going into the things you describe:

    The metal retainer should be no problem. If there’s a problem, it could be the stuff that was used to fit the metal to your teeth. This “glue” or “cement” or however the dentist likes to call it, may contain a chemical known as BPA (Bisphenol A). BPA has been found to be poisonous, and now it’s banned in most countries, at least for anything that may come into contact with food or beverages.

    The metal fillings (I assume you’re talking about amalgams) are not a problem either. There is no relation between the amount of mercury in the body and the amount of amalgam fillings. And two is really very, very few.

    The Roaccutane is much more likely to have caused you problems, especially since you took it for such an incredibly long time. It’s not banned as you describe, but its application has been severely limited due to all its side effects. Roaccutane is known to sometimes cause bowel inflammation and similar effects – which is exactly where your problems are now located.

    So if you haven’t stopped applying roaccutane already, I would advise you to do so now. For restoring the balance in your intestinals, you probably need to take additional measures, for which this forum could prove very helpful.

    If you do a forum search for accutane, its one of the biggest causes of CRC.

    Yeah, Janek, it’s more than likely that your two fillings were/are the root cause for your candida. I could give you a whole spiel on the dangers of mercury, but there’s a whole bunch of information already posted in the mercury subforum. Check out this website though: http://www.livingnetwork.co.za/chelationnetwork/chelation-the-andy-cutler-protocol/

    This is a good video as well:

    Janek, check out this great success story by someone who decided to address the mercury issue:

    My Battle with Candida and Mercury Poisoning…The Connection

    I am writing this story with the hope that I can help someone who may be suffering from the same illness as
    me. In April of 2007, I was in the throws of breaking off a relationship that was very stressful. One night
    we had gone out to have sushi and I cracked a tooth with a “silver filling”. I didn’t think much of it at the
    time and didn’t get it fixed right away since the part of the tooth that had broken off had been small and I
    couldn’t afford a new crown. So, each night I would brush really well at that tooth to make sure I didn’t
    get any food caught up there. Several months later, I had gotten a sinus infection and had taken a round of
    antibiotics. I then developed a strange sort of diaper rash. I went back to the doctors and they said it
    looked like a fungal rash and sent me home with an antifungal. During this time, I had been experiencing
    vicious mood swings and horrible depression. I normally didn’t experience these emotions, but I attributed
    it to the bad relationship I was involved in. The rash wouldn’t go away. I then noticed I had a yeast
    infection that kept coming back even though I had finished a round of monistat. My thinking started to
    become anxiety riddled with what I could only call brain fog. One night I was convinced I was dying and
    took myself to the emergency room. By then I had done some research and stumbled across candida and
    convinced myself I had it and thought it was from the antibiotics I had taken.

    I finally found a doctor to put me on a months worth of diflucan but the candida wouldn’t go way. I was on
    the most stringent form of anti yeast diet you can imagine. No sugar, no carbs, no fruit, no alcohol,
    nothing. I was getting so thin. Each time I killed the yeast, I was experiencing horrible die off. Dizziness,
    chronic fatigue, headaches, burning toes, persistant yeast infections. I finally found Karen’s website and
    out of desperation, I called Dr. Piller and flew out to Idaho. I had been battling this for a year on my own
    and needed real help. Before I flew out, I decided to get that tooth fixed because I had read somewhere that
    people were saying that those “silver fillings” contained 50% mercury and would keep the yeast around
    until you got rid of the mercury. I didn’t take it seriously, but decided to get the tooth fixed just in case.
    When I saw Dr. Piller, he told me I had a dairy allergy. I thought, Yay! I have a reason for my yeast not
    going away. Long story short, it didn’t go away, and cut to another year, and I was miserable. Then I ran
    across a post from someone who said that her candida die off symptoms were the same symptoms as
    mercury poisoning and when she removed all her mercury fillings her yeast went away. The light bulb
    moment came and I finally figured out it was that cracked tooth that poisoned me! I was so happy to
    finally figure it out. Dr. Piller ordered me a hair test and sure enough I was very high in mercury,
    aluminum, tin and cadmium. Mercury poisoning makes you retain other metals. I then found a mercury
    free dentist who removed another filling and two crowns since there was mercury under the crowns. Once
    I was mercury free, I followed the protocol of Dr. Andrew Cutler. He is a chemist who wrote a book called
    “Amalgam Illness”. That book changed my life and I took the appropriate meds to chelate the mercury. I
    also did saunas, massage and took Lecithin, which Dr. Piller recommended to remove metals. NOTE: IT
    IS VERY IMPORTANT TO REMOVE ALL SOURCE OF MERCURY FROM YOUR TEETH BEFORE
    YOU CHELATE, OTHERWISE YOU WILL GET SEVERELY ILL. Once I chelated the mercury to the
    point my body could handle it, my yeast went away, almost over night!! It took me about 5 months of
    chelation to get to the point I am now. My candida and mercury are under control. I will continue to
    chelate a couple of times a year to remove any remaining metals, but at this point, I am healthy, eat what I
    want and live normally. I still don’t eat milk products, but heck, after what I went through, it’s well worth
    it to stay healthy. NOTE: The mercury vapor emits from the tooth anytime you drink hot beverages, brush
    your teeth or grind your teeth at night. There is no safe level of mercury in the body, it lowers your
    immune system horribly. Some symptoms of mercury poisoning are:

    Dizziness, chronic fatigue, yeast syndrome, tingling in extremities, hormone imbalance, burning toes, night
    sweats, a feeling of electricity under skin, mood swings, depression, anxiety, brain fog, ringing in ears…to
    name a few. These are not caused by candida which I thought, they are mercury poisoning symptoms!!!
    Very important. Left unchecked it can lead to parkinsons, MS, altzheimers, fibromyalgia.

    I hope I have shed some light and given someone that light bulb moment. God bless….

    It’s very unlikely that two fillings have anything to do with mercury, let alone with candida.

    This is because there is absolutely no relation between the amount of fillings in your teeth and the amount of mercury in your body. This has been found experimentally by carefully examining the organs of deceased people (who gave permission for this research before they died). Almost none of the examined people had any noticeable amount of mercury in their organs. Some did, but they were not necessarily the people who had the largest amount of fillings.

    This means that we can not deny that mercury, IF it is in your body at all (which is unlikely), does NOT come from your fillings. Those few people who really do have a mercury poisoning (they do exist, though they are rare) obtained their mercury from other sources.

    The correct questions to ask are therefore:
    a) Do I have mercury at all?
    b) If so, what was the source, and can I eliminate this source?

    Andy Cutler is known to spread unrealistic fear through his website. He’s a seller of lots of therapies – and he knows very well that he can only lure unsuspecting people into following his therapies by making them believe they need those therapies.

    This is a prime example of spreading fear.

    The myth of the “smoking tooth” has been debunked lots of times. The “smoke” you see is really only water vapour. There’s no way any of the components of amalgam fillings could produce smoke.

    The water vapour is real, but by lying about the cause of the “smoke”, the video becomes a fraud.
