When I got my mercury fillings taken out of my mouth

I had about 8 fillings in my mouth, starting from childhood. So I wanted to get the metal out of my mouth, and about 5 years ago, I did. It was an arduous process, but I constantly was getting headaches, had a metallic taste in my mouth all the time, and was over fatigued. So I went about researching how to best do this. I found a holistic dentist in Hopkins, MN thanks to the DAMS organization (Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions) And, to my own luck, they were located here in the twin cities.

I did a few things to prepare for the mercury removal from my mouth:

1. Megadosed on vitamin C and Chlorella 3 days prior and the morning of
2. Wore my detox foot pads during and after the mercury removal
3. I did one quadrant of my mouth at a time
4. They used a rubber dam in my mouth. Regular dentists will NOT use this just to replace a filling. They normally only use this for root canals. But it helps prevent the mercury dust particles to go into the inner linings of your gums and cheeks, and soak right into your blood stream. (many research articles tout the benefits of taking certain vitamins and minerals sublingually, because it absorbs so much quicker, in your mouth... well, same goes for mercury dust the dentists are drilling out of your teeth!)

The change I felt was not immediate, although the metal taste in my mouth disappeared right away. It took about a week for me to notice a big difference.

I did have a few things that went wrong, during the process. It is true that composite fillings are more sensitive, and if you have sensitive teeth already, then you run the risk of having even more sensitive teeth after the metal fillings are replaced. Another thing that can go wrong, and did for me, is that one of my fillings ran very deep. It was very close to the root/nerves. As a result, the nerve died and I ended up with a root canal. This is something that I never wanted to happen, and I knew the risk. But I also did not want the mercury in my mouth anymore.

If I had it to do over again, there is a small chance that I would have chosen to leave that one particularly tooth alone, and do the other 7 ones.

Another added bonus is that when I open my mouth in a huge wide "O" -- all you see are white, pretty teeth there!! You don't see any silver, etc. I love the look of a clean, white mouth.

Heavy metal toxicity is rampant in our society. It is destroying our health. My detox foot patches, from Purify Your Body, detox the heavy metals out of your body -- including mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum, etc. For your health, you definitely want to use them!!!

Can Fibromyalgia Be Caused by Exposure To Environmental Toxins?

So many people suffer from chronic muscle pain and fibromyalgia symptoms. Here is an article from a fibromyalgia support group in SC that addresses a likely cause: Environmental Toxins.

"With fibromyalgia, a syndrome that combines pain, fatigue, anxiety, and depression, you have to separate “cause” from “trigger.” New research suggests that this mysterious syndrome is caused by imbalances of chemicals and hormones in the nervous system that amplify sensation, making even a slight touch feel painful. In a study published last year, Daniel Clauw, MD, a rheumatologist at the University of Michigan, used MRIs to show what happens in the brains of fibromyalgia patients in response to minimal pressure to their left thumbs – blood rushes to areas involved in pain perception. To get the same response from healthy people Clauw had to apply twice the pressure.

The super-sensitivity to pain that characterizes fibromyalgia seems to be genetic. The disorder runs in families, and researchers have identified one gene believed to be involved in the syndrome. Patients also have higher than normal levels of a neuropeptide called substance P that is involved in pain signals and subnormal levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, hormones that modulate pain.

If you are born with a predisposition to fibromyalgia, you still need to experience an event to trigger the disorder – that is, something must happen to set it off. This can be a viral infection, emotional stress, an accident or injury or even exposure to certain drugs or chemicals. My colleague Iris Bell, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Director of Research here at the Program in Integrative Medicine, tells me that multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and fibromyalgia often overlap. In fact, according to a recent paper in the Annals of Internal Medicine, 33 percent of fibromyalgia patients also suffer from MCS. Dr. Bell adds that 60 percent of all MCS patients are able to identify the specific exposure that set off their initial reaction."

So -- what can you do to lessen your chances of getting fibromyalgia? What if you already have it? How can you decrease your symptoms until they are all gone - without causing more symptoms? The answer is a 3-step process, and is quite simple:

1. Stop putting toxins into your body
2. Take the toxins out of your body that you already exposed yourself to!
3. Give your body the good, wholesome nutrition that it needs.

First of all, let's look at putting toxins in your body. You are exposed to toxins via your makeup, face creams, hair products, shampoos, processed foods, even produce with pesticides, meats and dairy that are made using antibiotics and growth hormones; you are putting toxins in your body when you microwave in plastic containers, when you drink tap water, when you use fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth. Even some furniture and carpet emits toxic gases that you breathe in! This is not to mention other obvious things like flame retardant sprays on children's sleepwear, air pollution emitted by our vehicles, EMF radiation caused by the use of electronic devices, and so on...

What can you do? It seems hopeless, right? Well, let me give you some hope. First of all, to overcome your fibromyalgia symptoms, you do not need to avoid EVERY TOXIN OUT THERE. But you do need to take the first steps. A basic list to get you started:

  • Stop eating aspartame (diet soda), splenda, and MSG. Unfortunately, it seems that those 3 things are in almost everything these days. But avoid them at all costs! This is IMPORTANT
  • Stop drinking tap water -- unless you have a good filter
  • Avoid high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
  • start buying organic soaps, lotions, makeup, shampoos, cleansers -- as much as you can afford. They are a bit more expensive -- but your health is worth it. Do it little by little.
  • Stop cooking with aluminum cookware! This is DEADLY!!

The second thing you want to do is detox your body. There are many ways to do it but of course my preferred method is using my detox foot pads. Use 3 per foot, per night for as long as you can. Of course you will probably feel relief within a few days. These are great products. You can detox all the heavy metals, plastic by products, and environmental chemicals from your body. But there also are other ways. A Far Infrared Sauna works miracles at detoxing your body and giving you relief from fibromyalgia. You can also do various other detoxes out there, but some of them are quite harsh.

Last of all, out of the three basic steps I am outlining, the third one is the easiest. Find a wholesome, whole food nutritional supplement. It may take 2-3 kinds, like an ionic mineral complex, plus a whole foods liquid, plus possibly a greens formula. But remember to make it whole foods -- nothing made synthetically in a lab -- and make sure you get it from a reputable company. I don't have one favorite, but I enjoy Garden of Life products, and trust them. I also really like Clark's minerals. You can do your own research if you think those companies are good, by yourself.

Good luck.

Detox your body -- get rid of all the chemicals and plastic by products!

I am wondering how much plastic seeps into your bottled water if you re-use the bottle over and over. Probably a lot. And some plastics mimic estrogen, wreaking havoc inside your body. Maybe those stainless steel water bottles have some use after all.  I wish they were easier to drink out of though, I love the sport top plastic bottles.

At least my detox foot pads pull out the plastic by products like the ones leeched into your body via water, food, etc.

I can't imagine how bad BPA is for you, and how prevalent it is in every day things that we use in our daily lives. For instance, canned foods are lined on the inside with BPA. And you can imagine how much gets leeched into the food.

And, how many of us use a teflon frying pan that has scrapes on it? The teflon is scratched? That is almost the worst possible thing for you, and you should get rid of that pan right away, and detox your body as soon as possible!

Speaking of pots and pans, how many use aluminum pans to cook with? It just isn't worth saving a buck and purchasing the cheap aluminum pots and pans, when you are exposing yourself and your family to aluminum, the number one cause of alzheimer's disease! That is a very scary disease, and no one should have to suffer from it. So please, take care of yourself and detox your body of heavy metals now!

What Makes Purify Your Body's Detox Foot Pads Better than all the Rest?

Purify Your Body’s Detox Foot Pads are packed with powerful ingredients that WORK!

Purify Your Body’s Detox pads produce more negative ions and infrared light than ANY other pad and are the only pads with NO starch fillers. All ingredients are designed to work together to draw out and absorb harmful toxins.

Remember that as adults we have between 400 to 800 man made chemicals in our bodies.

Detoxifying is an acceptable and necessary part of living a healthy life in today’s world. Purify Your Body’s Detox foot pads are one of the most effective and easiest forms of natural detoxification. What poisons are you carrying around in your body? More importantly, how do you get rid of them? While eastern medicine has known and embraced the virtues of natural detoxing for many years, western nations are only just catching on. Yet it’s a natural, obvious, and effective health treatment which can cure fluid retention, food intolerances, gas or diarrhea, colds and infections, exhaustion, skin rashes, headaches or dizziness, insomnia, and a host of other problems. As adults, we have around 400 to 800 man-made chemicals circulating in our bodies. Normal healthy body elimination processes do not remove all these chemicals. Food, drinks, polluted air, medications, stress, metabolism, disease, products applied to skin, synthetics, home and workplace chemicals contribute to the body's toxin load which accumulates daily and builds up over the years.

Introducing the amazing Purify Your Body Detox Pad. The pad warms and opens the pores of the skin to draw out and absorb accumulated wastes via the skin under osmotic pressure from the blood and lymph systems.

The all-natural dry ingredients in the Foot Detox pad adhere to the soles of the feet like a big band aid overnight, when the body detoxifies. Depending on the individual, the detox may take two or three weeks or two or three months, or even longer in the case of more severe disease or toxic build up.

Potent all-natural ingredients. The Detox patch ingredients include the Agaricus mushroom from the jungles of Brazil. The Agaricus mushroom contains ample amounts of Beta Glucans, the major ingredient in natural cancer controlling substances, a steroid that can regulate the increase of cancerous cells.

Dry powder in the patch also contains chitosan, bamboo sap, eucalyptus sap from mature trees over 100meters high, ionic (absorbable) tourmaline minerals that contain negative ions and saururus chenesis - the first plant to grow at the atomic bomb site in Hiroshima, and other potent plant ingredients. These ingredients work together to draw out the toxic build-up in your feet, and in other parts of the body.

Toxins accumulate in the extremities. For hundreds of years Eastern medical studies have held the view that toxins progress towards the lower extremities in the body during the day. Assisted by gravity they accumulate from the tips of the toes to the ankles. Eastern medicine also understands that toxin accumulation leads to many degenerative diseases. For example, painful rheumatism and arthritis are caused by acidic toxin fluid gathered in the joints. There is another Asian expression that says aging comes from the foot.

Why our Detox Foot Pads are better:

* Negative ions, a positive influence. Purify Your Body’s Detox Foot Pads are made with the mineral tourmaline, which contains negative ions. Negative ions are oxygen atoms with an extra electron and they can help you feel better. Remember that feeling you've experienced near a waterfall or high in the mountains? Those are two places that thousands of negative ions occur. They create a positive effect on human biochemistry and Detox pads allow negative ions to work their magic. The special sap used in the Detox foot pads increases the vibration of negative ions which can then be absorbed easily by the skin.

* Far infrared generation, the warmth of healing. Our tissues normally produce infrared energy for warmth and tissue repair. At times the infrared energy in our tissues may require a boost to a higher level to ensure the fullest healing possible for tissue repair. Our Detox Foot Pads have been scientifically proven to produce warmth from Far infrared generation.

* Highest Quality Ingredients. The Detox Foot Patch uses the highest quality wood vinegar after natural purifying. Wood and bamboo vinegar are dried for a period of 8 months in order to remove the water substance. Next, to remove the impurities, a filtration process is applied four times. Lastly, the drying process is applied again for a period of 8 months to obtain a complete pure wood and bamboo vinegar. The finished product of the drying process is outstandingly pure.

Dry powder in the pad contains: Agaricus mushroom, chitosan, bamboo sap, eucalyptus sap from mature trees over 100 meters high, ionic (absorbable) tourmaline minerals that contain negative ions and saururus chenesis - the first plant to grow at the atomic bomb site in Hiroshima, and other potent plant ingredients.

Purify Your Body’s Detox pads are FDA registered. Detox pads were tested and certified safe and with non detectable heavy metals by USA FDA in November 2002 giving peace of mind for their safety.

Raw Milk, Detox Foot Pads and NutraSilver.

It is good to know I am putting only good stuff in my body... many people consume more calories and empty calories via fluids than they do foods. I'll save my calories for foods!! And the raw milk that I drink is so amazing. Sometimes when I am not super hungry for dinner, I just drink a glass of raw milk -- we get it here in Minnesota from Kalisch Family Farms.

My goal this weekend is to use the detox foot pads 3 times. I need to get back into the rhythm of detoxing.

Another thing that I am doing is creating a brochure for NutraSilver. That has been a huge seller on my website. I just started selling it a couple months ago and now I ship out a ton of bottles every week! It is sad to know how many morgellons sufferers there are out there. I wish I knew a cure so I could pass it on to my customers.

Have a great day!

Purify Your Body Foot Pads!

The story behind my detox foot pads

My name is Rebecca and I started Purify Your Body as a hobby/passion because I was very interested in natural health and wellness. I also had a lot of extra time on my hands, and was able to devote the evenings and weekends to creating my website, providing great customer service, and most importantly of all, providing the highest quality detox foot pad out there on the market today. I offer low prices because I have a great day job that I love, and don’t have to rely on my sales of these foot pads to pay my bills! I have been in business for over five blessed years now, and I know that my success has stemmed as a result of offering the highest quality foot pads along with great customer service!

I am very adamant about offering a detox foot pad that does not contain fillers. I see a lot of foot pads out there that contain over 50% fillers, and refuse to degrade the quality of mine just to save a buck. So know that when you are using these foot pads, they are the best quality.

My tips for you when you first try these are to put 3 foot detox pads on each foot the first night: on your toes, on your arches and on your heels. In the morning, look at the pads and see what area of your foot is leeching out the most “goo” and then on the subsequent nights, focus on the area that you observed is pulling out the most toxins. That is the correlating area of your body that may be containing the most toxins. You are welcome to put 3 pads on each foot per night, or as you see fit. There is no “right” way to use these pads. Other information you might want to know, as it is frequently asked of me:

Q: Is the brownish “goo” in the morning a result of a reaction to my feet sweating?
A: While the footpads turn dark if exposed to water (just like tea bags would) the “goo” you see is actually toxic matter that has been leeched through your lymphatic system and out your feet. If you continue to use the foot pads until you are “detoxed” you will notice that they don’t come out gooey in the morning anymore. This dispels the fallacy that sweat is what is creating the results you see. You also can get them analyzed in an independent lab, and find out what toxins YOU have in your body!

Q: How long does a detox take for a normal person?
This depends on so many factors, including how often you are exposed to toxins (in your drinking water, food, the air you breathe, the chemicals you ingest, even your carpet may emit toxins!) On AVERAGE here in the US, I would have to say that a 2-3 month detox is normal per area of your foot. If you are sick or battling an illness or cancer, it could take more than a year of constant use! But even if you use the pads for only one month, you are doing a great service to your body and should be feeling more energy, better sleep, less illness.

Q: How do I know that the foot pads only take out the BAD stuff? What about medications I am on, etc?
The foot pads work by pulling toxins out of your lymphatic system, and it is in your lymphatic system where your body stores the toxins – which for most of us becomes stagnant. Our bodies are so overwhelmed with toxins in this modern industrial age that it doesn’t know how to rid itself of them, as it was never exposed to them before! They are safe to use with medication and any supplements you may be taking.

Q: How do the foot pads work?
: Through the process of osmosis (remember from high school biology?) It is the same process that allows trees to get their nutrients from the ground through their root system, but yet nourish the leaves on their farthest branches. It is this “tree sap” or wood vinegars, that allow this process to work.

CAUTION: if you are allergic to mushrooms or shellfish, please be very cautious when using this product, as it contains those ingredients. While they do not absorb INTO your body (rather the pads pull things FROM your body), I still like to warn anyone who may be severely allergic. Also, if you are in your first trimester of pregnancy, please don’t use them for long periods of time.

If you have any questions about the use of these pads, please email me at and I normally respond within a few hours! Thank you!

Do magnets work on pain? Here is my experience.

I have to tell you my experience with a powerful magnet. I used to suffer from dreadful migraines. They were debilitating. Well, about 10 years ago I was scheduled to have an MRI (I have a hearing loss in my inner ear and the ENT wanted to make sure there wasn't a tumor pressing down on the inner ear - yes, my equilibrium is that bad normally!) The morning I was scheduled to go to the medical center for the MRI, I had one of the most horrific migraine attacks I have ever experienced.

I went to my appointment anyway. My husband (ex-husband now) took me. If you have ever had an MRI you know there is a loud knocking sound associated with it. I did not know how I was going to bear it. But I somehow did.

Now what I experienced was one of a kind. I have never experienced this before, nor since. When I got out of the MRI machine, my migraine was completely gone. And, it didn't come back! Granted, that is an expensive migraine treatment. I continued to have migraine attacks for 5 more years. Then, I heard about the detox foot pads. Until then, I never even heard of them. I put them on my feet, on the bottoms of my toes. It was like a leaky faucet - so much goo came out, it was crazy. After doing this consistently for a while, I realized my regular migraine attacks didn't happen anymore. It was a life-altering experience.

I am very grateful for this. That is the biggest reason why I started Purify Your Body and have never regretted it. So many of my customers have gotten immense relief from their migraines as a result of the detox foot pads.

Try them! You will see a difference!

Lead in your Lipstick? Toxins in your makeup? Yikes!

I tell many of my friends over and over about how bad mainstream makeup is for you. Not just makeup, but skincare products and perfumes, shampoos, conditioners, etc. They must be sick and tired of me nagging them about it. I have slowly been converting to more natural products myself. After reading on this website though, Safe Cosmetics I am now wondering if even my "natural" and "organic" products are really all that.

I have most of my eye shadows, my blush, foundation, eye liner, mascara, and lipstick from different companies that purport to be "safe" from toxins. I do not have lipliner yet. I do like The Body Shop products, and will check them out next time I am near one of them for some lipliner. Their mascara is one of the best. SEcond only to Clinique's mascara in the pale greenish blue tube. Clinique's is definitely not toxin-free, but I still love it!

If you want to find a way to get rid of the toxins you are putting into your body, then you should try my detox foot pads.

And, if you email me your address (from my website at I will send you a free sample.

I am battling hypothyroidism. It is very frustrating when I am working out and eating good, healthy food, yet the weight still creeps up on me. I have decided not to take any medication. Instead, I am focusing on a few different things.

First, I am taking Thyromin from Young Living. It has adrenal and endocrine support, along with iodine and pituitary support. I am also using the Thyroid program from Mother Earth Minerals. I am very grateful for this, as my friend, Beth, has gifted me with these wonderful supplements. She sells homeopathic HcG and the ability to lose weight quickly works (if you don't suffer from hypothyroid issues).

It is a fallacy that you can lose X amount of pounds if you exercise and burn x times 3500 calories. Especially since many of us have thyroid issues. Where did my thyroid issues stem from? I did some research and realized that fluoride and bromides basically mimic iodine... when you are exposed to these toxins, your thyroid gland absorbs them to saturation. Then, when iodine (or iodide) is introduced to your body, your thyroid gland does not use it because it is already saturated, thinking it has enough already. And, it ends up not having the iodine our bodies need, to function correctly. I am simplifying this process, but it is easier to understand that way.

So, it is more than just supplementing with a good iodine product. It is decreasing your exposure to these other toxins, and detoxing your body as well.

I have been selling my own brand of detox foot pads for over 5 years now. But in the past 2 years I have rarely used them. I had been using them faithfully for over 6 years, and they had come clean in the mornings, so I started just using them on weekends. Then, I stopped using them on weekends. So my body slowly started accumulating toxins again. Purify Your Body detox foot pads are the highest quality foot pad on the market. There are only 2 other brands that equal mine in quality. But because I do this as a side business, I do not have to sell them at an extremely high price, and I occasionally have sales. So, you get the highest quality for the lowest price.

So, the past couple weeks I have been using the foot pads again. I am also detoxing by using the Far Infrared Sauna in my basement. I do supplement with minerals -- that is important because you will sweat out the bad stuff AND the good stuff.

My basal body temperature is slowly rising, which is a sign that the hypothyroidism is improving. I will be satisfied when it is consistently above 97.7 degrees first thing in the morning. When I first started, it was 96.4 +/- .2 degrees for 3 days. (I averaged).
I will definitely post updates as time goes by.
