Episode Description

Mercury fillings have been used since the mid 1800’s in direct opposition to the known deleterious effects of the element in the use of gold refining as well as hat sizing. There have been battles over the use of mercury and now the science is on our side. We can prove that Mercury is bad for humans. No ifs and or buts.

If you have a mouth, this show is for you! Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? It might be your teeth! Do you have silver fillings? They are actually called mercury amalgams as they are 50 percent mercury. Do you have root canal teeth? Do your gums bleed? Are your teeth loose? Would you like to learn how to keep your teeth and gums healthier? Could you have a hidden infection in your jaw?

Many people have had their amalgams removed without any precautions taken and have actually increased the level of mercury in their body through that process. Our show educates you about toxic heavy metals. We also discuss protocols that should be used to help keep a patient from absorbing mercury and how to remove mercury from body tissues after the fillings have been removed.

Dr. Dawn Ewing

The International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine is a 30 year old organization. Biological dentistry is concerned with the whole body effects of all dental materials, techniques and procedures. Its fluoride-free, mercury-free and mercury safe protocols are implemented while removing old fillings. What happens in the mouth is reflected in the body and what happens in the body is reflected in the mouth. They are inseparable. Teeth are connected to the whole body through bones, blood, lymph and fascia. Biological dentistry is concerned with the whole body effects of oral-facial structure, teeth/gum/jaw infections, dental materials, dental treatment and non-treatment, as well as the effect of a patient’s food, lifestyle, environment and systemic health on their teeth, gums, jaws, muscles, joints, saliva and associated oral tissues and structures. Biological dentistry is also concerned with the effect of all health care interventions on a patient’s oral health.

The Academy networks with researchers, physicians and dentists to stay current on toxic materials that may alter health. We host educational events as well as annual conferences to present our research and learn from our peers. We discuss heavy metals, fluoride, toxins produced from root canaled teeth, how dentistry can impact an immune system, sleep apnea, nutrition and much more.

Dr. Dawn Ewing is the executive director of the IABDM and hosts the show with many of our leaders in the field.

Charles G. Brown J.D.

Charles G. Brown is national counsel for Consumers for Dental Choice, www.toxicteeth-free.org, and an attorney experienced in health, antitrust, and administrative law. Charlie Brown was twice elected Attorney General of West Virginia, a graduate of Yale Law School. Charlie leads the U.S. and the world campaigns to end the use of mercury-based dental fillings, due to their adverse health, environmental, and occupational effects. He has brought mercury-free dentistry into the mainstream by challenging the three main forces protecting toxins in the mouth: state dental boards, the American Dental Association, and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). His legal work caused state dental boards to abandon their tyrannical gag rule, which had compelled silence by dentists about the presence of mercury in amalgam. Charlie, under the banner of the World Alliance for Mercury-Free Dentistry, launched a worldwide campaign to implement mercury-free dentistry. He has been to 21 nations. View Guest page
