I have Lyme disease and Bartonella, causing infection and dead bone in my jawbone, among other things. I’ve had 28 surgeries on my jawbone and lost all of my teeth.

Amalgam fillings, is activated charcoal safe to brush with?
Question: I have (amalgam) metal dental fillings in my teeth from the seventies. Is activated charcoal safe to brush with? ~Jermaine Answer: Yes, it is! Activated charcoal can actually adsorb mercury and once it has adsorbed a toxin, it will not let it go unless it reaches extremely high temps, such as 600 or more degrees celsius. Also, activated charcoal powder, or at least our activated charcoal powder, such as the Detox & Cleanse (USP grade, made from organic coconut shell) or the Ultra Fine Culinary is less abrasive than the leading toothpastes, if that was your concern as well. The very best charcoal for brushing teeth that have mercury amalgams, […]Read More
