Mouth Full of Poison - The Truth about Mercury Amalgam Fillings

At Sanoviv’s state-of-the-art Oral HealthCare Center, we understand the important relationship between oral health and overall health. We also understand that neglecting these dental health problems may jeopardize the successful treatment of other, more serious diseases. Because of our commitment to whole body health and healing, we offer a unique Mercury Detoxification Program. This exceptional program is available for anyone wishing to have his or her dental care performed at Sanoviv’s mercury-free holistic dental center.

Millions of people worldwide have it right in their bodies, reeking havoc in every cell. 72 tons of it is placed directly in the mouths of North Americans each year.

It can contribute to major chronic degenerative diseases including heart disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, chronic fatigue syndrome, kidney disease, and other neurological diseases, just to name a few.

Is it in your mouth? It might have been put there innocently by a well-intentioned dentist many years ago. But now, more and more research is showing that this toxic substance may be causing untold damage to your entire system. And the only way to eliminate the risk is to eliminate the substance from your body, safely and thoroughly.

The substance is Mercury. Mercury is the most toxic, non-radioactive heavy metal on the planet. According to the World Health Organization, or W.H.O, there is no known safe level of mercury for humans. The tiniest amount of mercury entering the body can inflict widespread damage to cells, tissues and organs.

While mercury can enter our bodies through many environmental avenues, the W.H.O. data shows that mercury released from amalgam fillings is, by far, the primary source of exposure. In fact, the W.H.O. estimates that exposure from amalgams is 6 to 7 times greater than exposure from fish or other food sources and 400 to 500 times the level of exposure from the environment.

“The controversy regarding amalgam fillings has been raging for over 100 years. Yet one thing is clear: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration have both declared the mercury in amalgam fillings as a toxic, dangerous substance, that should not be touched or released into the environment. OSHA requires that dental amalgam materials be stored in unbreakable, hazardous waste containers, away from heat and no one should handle amalgam material without protection.

If OSHA has determined that the mercury release from amalgam is so dangerous that it can’t be touched, then why in heaven’s name are we putting this stuff in our mouths?” Wentz quote Mercury’s most profound health damage is inflicted upon the central nervous system, the tissues in the brain and spinal chord. We now know that mercury from amalgam/silver fillings can contribute to many health problems. Most frightening perhaps is that mercury can pass through the placenta of a pregnant woman and infiltrate the fetus’ central nervous system. Mercury from amalgam fillings can also pass from breast milk to a nursing newborn. While it is possible to remove amalgam fillings and replace them with a safe, non-toxic composite, removal must be done using a rigorous protocol in order to eliminate potential mercury exposure when taking out the fillings.

At Sanoviv’s state-of-the-art Oral HealthCare Center, we understand the important relationship between oral health and overall health. We also understand that neglecting these dental health problems may jeopardize the successful treatment of other, more serious diseases. Because of our commitment to whole body health and healing, we offer a unique Mercury Detoxification Program. This exceptional program is available for anyone wishing to have his or her dental care performed at Sanoviv’s mercury-free holistic dental center.

Because of Mercury’s extreme toxicity it will not be enough just to have your mercury/amalgam filings removed and replaced. In order to ensure that you have done everything possible to eliminate mercury as a health issue, Sanoviv’s protocol involves doing much more than just removing the source of the problem.

When you choose to have your amalgams removed, you will be examined for amalgam fillings and tested for harmful mercury vapor using our high-tech mercury vapor analyzer. If necessary, additional tests will be recommended to help determine whether mercury has accumulated in your body. A treatment plan will be developed to determine the best approach to removing and replacing these toxic fillings. We will also provide you with a scientifically designed Mercury Detoxification Program. This program may include “chelation therapy” – an intravenous therapy that will help flush the body of mercury. It may also include anti-oxidant supplements, antihomotoxic medicine, colonic hydrotherapy and lymphatic drainage massage after every amalgam removal treatment.

These processes provide the best opportunity for your body to rid itself of mercury that has accumulated in your tissues and organs. In depth studies show that individuals who have had their amalgam fillings removed report marked improvement in their health over a series of weeks and months.

“I feel passionately about letting people know about the hazardous effects of mercury from amalgam fillings. So passionately that I’ve written and published a book titled “A Mouth Full of Poison”. In it, I scientifically document why mercury in your mouth is so terribly toxic. I urge you to take advantage of Sanoviv’s unique Oral Health Program. We offer the most advanced amalgam removal and detoxification program available today. Maximize your chances for a long and healthy life. Talk to our admissions department and learn how you can get the poison out of your mouth – Today.”

Dear friend,

I want to share a powerful and life-changing health experience that I had in January. I hope my experience will inspire you to do something similar in your own life.


In January, my daughter Kate and I went to Sanoviv Medical Institute (you can visit them on the web at, a state-of-the-art medical facility
In January, my daughter Kate and I went to Sanoviv Medical Institute (you can visit them on the web at, a state-of-the-art medical facility in Rosarito Beach, Baja Mexico. Although many of my family members had been to this remarkable place, it was my first experience. Sanoviv, which means healthy life, is a first-class medical facility that follows the medical model you always wished for. Their treatments and facilities address the health and balance of every one of the chakras, making Sanoviv the perfect place to go for anyone who has a health problem or anyone who wants to nip a potential problem in the bud.

Sanoviv, which was founded by Dr. Myron Wentz, is an accredited hospital with a surgical suite. They can perform just about any type of surgery bringing in top surgeons who specialize in various surgical procedures. They also use very innovative methods for pain relief that don't involve a lot of drugs.

Kate and I did the health assessment, which involved not only standard tests and blood work (cholesterol, pulmonary functions, EKG, and ultrasound), but also a very thorough dental exam, dark field blood analysis, a comprehensive body composition/fitness evaluation, and vega testing. (This is a bioelectrical test system based on acupuncture meridians that checks the health of every organ in the body, including the presence of allergies, heavy metals, and other toxins.) Our test results were comprehensive and quite detailed.

Sanoviv had as many men as women. I noticed that many men appreciate the thorough analysis they receive from the Sanoviv staff because, unlike most spa experiences which are designed primarily for relaxation and renewal, Sanoviv provides a great deal of accurate, objective medical data on your current state of health.

In addition to our health evaluation, we attended a number of classes, which are available every night, on life purpose, meditation, humor, diet, the mind/body connection, and so forth. Even though this has been my life's work, I loved the classes and got a lot out of them! As for daily exercise, we walked on paths that overlook the ocean or used the fitness facilities, which provide a variety of ways to work out. Sanoviv also has traditional spa services such a facials, various massages, and seaweed wraps. All of these services are designed to complement the detox program and are often prescribed by your individual physician at Sanoviv.

I recommend Sanoviv for anyone who wants to get and stay vibrantly healthy for as long as they live. I plan to go there once a year as an alternative to a routine physical. I know that their outstanding staff will address not only my physical body, but also my diet, lifestyle, and even my thoughts.


Dr. Christiane Northrup Detoxes at Sanoviv Medical InstituteModern life exposes all of us to everything from air pollution to pesticide residue on our food. In addition, emotional stresses such as worry and resentment can create a toxic environment in our bodies. In order to remain healthy, we all need a variety of ways to detoxify ourselves regularly. Having just returned from Sanoviv, where the entire environment and all the meals are set up to detoxify and heal the body, I can certainly attest to the benefits of taking time off from daily life for some cleansing.

The Sanoviv diet consists almost exclusively of fruits, vegetables, fresh vegetable juices, and shots of wheat grass juice, which is known for its detoxing properties. But you don’t have to go to a health retreat to get the benefits of detoxing. There are numerous ways to detox on your own. In fact, just giving up caffeine and/or alcohol for a week or two will help your body detoxify. And so will adding nutritional supplements, eliminating sugar, and increasing the amount of raw vegetables you eat. Taking saunas, long hot baths, and brushing your skin with a dry brush especially designed for the process are other ways to help your body throw off toxins more efficiently. So are colonics.

I was introduced to colon cleansing at Sanoviv and have signed up for more. I must say, I was impressed when the colonic therapist said, “You don’t chew your food well enough.” She was right. Now I’m committed to starting the digestive process the moment I put something in my mouth by chewing more—and also sitting down to eat each meal. I find that this small step has actually increased my enjoyment of food, though I'm eating less. The more you chew, the less you have to detox later. Unchewed and undigested food is a big contributor to toxic waste and gas in the intestines.

One of my favorite at-home detox regimens is USANA’s 5-Day High Fiber Cleanse, which is very easy and very helpful. Doing the Cleanse is so effective that most people are thrilled with the renewed vitality they feel. Many also report clearer skin and eyes as well as moderate weight loss.

Another valuable benefit is that the Cleanse helps reset your appetite center. Because you withdraw from your usual way of eating for 5 days—and replenish your body with fiber, omega-3 fats, lean protein, and low-glycemic carbs, all in an easily digestible form—you’re giving your body the chance to relearn what “enough” feels like. (If you do the USANA cleanse, I strongly recommend that you also include a pharmaceutical grade multivitamin/mineral while doing so. Micronutrient supplementation makes the whole regimen more effective.) Weight loss is a very nice side effect. And the weight that is lost comes from around the middle—that stubborn place where fat loves to accumulate, especially at midlife and beyond.

The bottom line is this: There is no one right way to detox. A number of different methods work. The key is to follow a lifestyle that minimizes the creation of toxins in the first place. And then, after times of inevitable poor eating or emotional stress, take extra care to give your body the tools and environment it needs to do its natural healing and detox work.

Alternative Healthcare Pioneer and Immunologist, Dr. Myron Wentz

To watch a video of a message from Dr. Wentz in Windows Media format or Quicktime click the appropriate links.

Hello, I’m Dr. Myron Wentz, the founder of Sanoviv Medical Institute. Sanoviv is a state-of-the-art healing center, hospital and research facility; it could change your life forever.

I have spent the last 40 years studying the intricacies of human cells: what makes them grow and flourish and what makes them degenerate and eventually die. By cultivating human cells in a healthy laboratory environment, free of toxins and with the proper nutrients, I learned what was necessary to grow healthy human cells. Moreover, I discovered that it is possible to reverse degeneration and disease.

Encouraged by my successful research in human cell culture, I began to imagine creating a healing center that addresses an individual’s health at the cellular level. This center would employ the newest advances in diagnostics, treatment, nutrition and detoxification. I set out to create the hospital of the future. This is what I envisioned:

  • A beautiful, immaculate, non-stressful environment that honors the relationship between the mind and body in achieving health;
  • A place that employs only toxin-free building materials and furnishings, free of Electromagnetic Fields and toxic chemicals.
  • A research hospital where the finest medical minds work together with you to properly diagnose any illness and to design a treatment plan to reverse the degeneration and cellular damage that may have already occurred.
  • A place where your cells are flooded with the vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and phyto-nutrients they need to repair and heal.

And so I created Sanoviv Medical Institute.

The results we are achieving in battling degenerative diseases are astounding.

Our guests have experienced everything from Cancer remissions to elimination of their reliance on medication, insulin, pain killers and other treatments that merely masked their symptoms but did not address the root cause of their illness.

I urge you to visit Sanoviv, whether you are in good health and would like to stay vibrant and healthy or are suffering from an illness, such as:

We will create a diagnostic program and treatment plan that is designed to fortify the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

On our web site you can see and hear the testimonials of those who have had remarkable results at Sanoviv and are eager to tell the world about the transformation in their health and their new outlook on life.

If you, a friend, or loved one need or want to achieve the highest quality of health in the most advanced hospital in the world, please take the first step today.

Watch our virtual tour, review the photos of our facility, and then take a moment to call us or fill out the contact form on our web site. One of our health professionals will respond quickly to your needs. I hope you'll agree with me that Sanoviv models the future of healthcare.

Give yourself or your loved ones the greatest gift of all: a vibrant, quality life free from pain and disease.
