Product Description:
Amalgam Illness: Diagnosis and Treatment starts with a detailed explanation of why to consider amalgam illness to be something that some people must have by comparing the well known statistics for how much mercury people absorb from their fillings to the well known statistics of how sensitive different members of a population are to a given toxin. This is for people who really don't know if they believe in amalgam illness or not (the other material available is rather sensational and I can't blame anyone reading it for having questions) before going any further.

Amalgam Illness: Diagnosis and Treatment discusses how to deal with physicians if you think you have a controversial disease - especially if you have the great "luck" to be covered by a managed care plan.

A key section is devoted to diagnosis - how to tell if you actually have amalgam illness instead of something else. It is also possible to be mercury poisoned from something other than amalgam, and the testing and examination described here is diagnostic regardless of the source.

How to get the dental work done safely if you have decided amalgam fillings are the problem is briefly described - there is a robust industry of amalgam free dentists if you know how to look for them.

The use of drugs and nutritional supplements to get the mercury out of your system is carefully presented - there are some important factors here that are not well described in the previous books on the subject and not all physicians who claim they know what to do actually give good advice.

Then comes what turns out to be the major section of the book - how to treat all the related health conditions amalgam illness can cause so as to relieve them while mercury detoxification proceeds. Since amalgam illness is not widely recognized in the medical community, most people with it get pretty sick before they get motivated to bounce around between doctors and eventually end up in front of one who tells them about it. So most victims have pretty serious, unpleasant health problems (like fibromyalgia or severe allergies) and they really need to make these STOP for the year or two it can take to get fully detoxed and let your body heal.

There are extensive tables of what to use for different conditions, a description of all the drugs and nutritional supplements suggested in the book, and appendices covering things like what the assorted clinical laboratory tests you might get actually mean, what other helpful books are that you might use, and supporting information like what the chelating agents are and how they work.

1.0 out of 5 stars.  Mr. Cutler has problems., May 30, 2017
By M. Hall
In my interaction with Mr. Cutler I've found him to have a violently unhealthy attitude toward mentally ill people, and isn't mercury a cause of mental illness, according to him? The ugly comments he's made in the Facebook "think tank" group proves he has no disregard for the people who are attempting to self-treat using his method, and his fan-club is all too willing to gang up and bully people who don't respond favorably to his protocol.

There are gentler chelation methods, and anyone with impaired toxicity is going to have problems and if taken to the group for support/advice, will get abuse piled on them. Best to avoid him and his group.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  All the rest of the information in the book is excellent. Lots of advice about supplements that help you ..., September 15, 2016
This book is a treasure. The information about doses of chelators is old, however - groups on the internet who have followed Dr. Andy Cutler's information have discovered that starting at lower chelator doses is much easier on them. All the rest of the information in the book is excellent. Lots of advice about supplements that help you deal with the symptoms of mercury poisoning while you work on detoxing it. It's really an encyclopedia of how to survive while detoxing.

1.0 out of 5 stars.  Dangerously erroneous information, September 14, 2016
By Kathryn Sakai
If you believe what the internet has to tell you, this is supposedly the only safe way to detox. This isn't true at all. There are people who've safely, successfully detoxed using other protocols. This protocol isn't 100% safe either. There are people who've followed the protocol exactly and have gotten very sick. One person in particular had some pretty severe liver problems. The people in the yahoo and Facebook groups are very militant that this is the only way to detox, and even encourage people to ignore their doctors in favor of this protocol. No matter what health problem you have, you'll be told that using this detox protocol will 'cure' the problem. There are people who've been doing this protocol for 4+ years and still aren't better.

This book is very poorly organized and difficult to follow. There's at least 2 versions of how much DMPS or DMSA to take (and 2 more different dose ranges in the online groups). Between the 2 problems, it makes it very difficult to figure out how exactly to go about the whole process. The assertion that oral glutathione is useless is also completely incorrect. Its an integral component of the Quicksilver protocol, which a lot of people do very well on. And I've seen dramatic improvement in my own health from glutathione supplements.

Bottom line. If you're sick, find a good functional medicine specialist and get to the bottom of why you're sick. Address any underlying infection, hormone, or MTHFR issue first before investigating heavy metal detox. That way you'll be healthy enough to get through the detox well, since detoxing can be very hard on the body.
