Why We're Passionate About This Subject
Amalgam Illness: Diagnosis and Treatment by Dr. Andrew Cutler, PhD, PE

In July of 2000, the owners of Herb Allure, Inc. had all their amalgam (a.k.a. "Silver" [mercury-containing]) dental fillings replaced and their lives changed dramatically. Since then, we've been passionately sharing the unbelievable information our research uncovered that caused us to make this life-changing decision.

We personally believe chronic mercury poisoning from amalgam ("silver") fillings is the most important health subject of the next decade. Many or most of the people you know probably already have it, don't know it, and are treating other symptoms which are rooted in one of mercury's many dangerous side effects.

The book we distribute on this website is the most comprehensive and well-written reference we have yet to find. It provides in-depth, yet easy-to-understand and practical information. It will help anyone determine if they have mercury-related health issues, and will help everyone overcome them.


Our Story

Overburdened by over a dozen varied health issues—some obvious, some subtle—we (Laura Clement and Russ Tanner, owners of Herb Allure, Inc.) thought our natural-health research and publishing company would fail.

Thanks to a spontaneous conversation with our website designer who, unbeknownst to us, had fibromyalgia and recovered after having her amalgam (a.k.a. "silver") fillings replaced, we quickly began researching this as a possible cause of our own health issues.

Finally concluding that mercury leakage from amalgam fillings was the cause of our own health issues, we had them all replaced. Suddenly, our lives changed dramatically—to say the least. The ironic part of this story is that we got into the natural-health field in order to solve the very same personal health problems that we later realized were caused by our dental fillings.

An "Act" of Sanity

Congresswoman Diane Watson (Los-Angeles) is proposing legislation to phase out mercury in dentistry in California. You won't believe what she has to say.

The Politics of Mercury Fillings

What We Believe

While visiting one of world's leading naturopathic colleges on the west coast, I discovered this little-known book. After just a few minutes of looking through it, I realized that it is the best reference I'd ever seen on the subject. I immediately told my business partner (Laura), "We have to get this book"!

Having been through the mercury nightmare and discovering how prevalent it is, we strongly believe mercury exposure by amalgam fillings and vaccine preservatives (Thimersol, etc.) is the single most widespread cause of disease and illness in America. Yet, most people have never been told that their own "silver" dental fillings contain 35% to 70% mercury.

Waiting Is Dangerous

Mercury destroys nerve cells, brain cells, accumulates in major organs, alters thought processes and lowers I.Q. Every day you delay learning about this issue is another day that irreparable damage is done. These are not the words of alarmists trying to sell merchandise, this is proven scientific fact. If you don't purchase this book from us, please purchase it somewhere.

While considering if you need this information, don't forget your friends and family because...
If you don't have amalgam fillings yourself, you most certainly know someone who does.

Did You Know?

"Silver" Fillings Contain Mercury (Hg)...

We all know mercury (the metal) is highly poisonous. However, did you know that California recently passed legislation requiring dentists to inform patients that those so-called "silver" fillings actually contain very little silver if any at all. They are, in fact 35% to 70% pure toxic mercury and can cause a myriad of diseases.

Mercury Leaches Into Your Mouth...

Numerous studies show that mercury continuously leaches from mercury fillings into your body. Mercury is well-known to be highly toxic and has long been known to cause innumerable serious health issues. In fact, the ADA (American Dental Association) recommends that dentists use very special care in handling the mercury used in filling preparations, including storing it in sealed containers and not touching it at all.

The ADA (American Dental Association) Really Cares About Your Health...

Following is a legal statement from the American Dental Association (ADA). The (red) emphasis I've provided will help you read between the lines. If you're a dentist, you should be outraged and withdraw your membership immediately.

"The American Dental Association (ADA) owes no legal duty of care to protect the public from allegedly dangerous products used by dentists. The ADA did not manufacture, design, supply or install the mercury-containing amalgams. The ADA does not control those who do. The ADA's only alleged involvement in the product was to provide information regarding its use. Dissemination of information relating to the practice of dentistry does not create a duty of care to protect the public from potential injury."

How Do I Know If I Have It?

Because mercury reacts with and interferes with so many chemical processes in the body (Thyroid T3 production, ATP production, selenium, insulin, to name just a few), and because mercury literally destroys nerve cells (by destroying the bonds between tubulin and actin which form the nerve cells' insulative sheathing), different people can experience completely different sets of symptoms. The key is to look for patterns that fit the mercury signature. "Amalgam Illness: Diagnosis & Treatment" clearly explains how to do this.

Unfortunately, the mercury tests most commonly used by hospitals today give negative results even when you have significant mercury in your body. One of the reasons for this is that mercury doesn't stay in your bloodstream very long. Instead, it is "harbored" in certain body tissues. The author (Dr. Cutler) recommends that you lend this book to your physician so he/she can see what combination of tests are necessary and know how to interpret the results to determine if you have mercury poisoning.

From The Author's Own Mouth

"I wrote this book because I became seriously ill while most doctors told me there was nothing wrong. After an "environmental medicine" doctor suggested I had amalgam illness I had to read lots of medical literature to figure out what was going on and what to do about it. I got better after having my fillings replaced and taking appropriate chelating agents. I also know a lot of other people to whom this happened."



What People Are Saying About The Book
These Are Actual Quotes

"This book will give you the ammunition you will need to successfully recover from amalgam illness. It will also help you avoid making bad decisions about treatment. Patient-friendly and detailed, it is a blueprint which points you in the right direction for each symptom and area of suffering. Do not proceed without this surprisingly thorough book."

L. M. S., Chicago, Illinois

"This is the book you need! Andrew Cutler has written an exceptional and enlightening book on the devastating health affects caused by amalgam fillings in your teeth. No one ever speaks as knowingly as those with experience. The author, himself a victim of mercury poisoning and a respected research scientist, offers a clear, concise description of the physical and neurological destruction mercury causes in the human body. Clearly explained in language the patient can understand, yet the book is medically and scientifically detailed enough to belong in every physician's library."
