I am recovering from Adrenal Exhaustion. But the pace is slow going.


Q: Hi Dr Lam, I am recovering from Adrenal Exhaustion. But the pace is slow going. I believe one of my main issues is a lot of Amalgam fillings I have. I have been taking Lipo Glutathione for this, but I am wondering, is it best to get the fillings removed or will this crash the adrenals? Also, what is the best method of testing for mercury in the body? Is this saliva or another way? Many Thanks.

A: It all depends on your body’s constitution, toxic load, and clearance state that you are currently in. A common mistake is to take out mercury fillings too quickly and lead to a retoxification reaction that can trigger an adrenal crash. Your nutritionist or doctor will help you decide on the timing. Testing by serum is best, but it is seldom necessary because almost universally you are going to be positive. It’s simply not possible to have zero mercury in the system if you live in a modern, toxic world. Just because you are positive does not mean that you have adrenal fatigue, and even if you have both, you have to wait for the right time when your body is strong to take action due to the risk.
