Your thyroid is an important gland for your health and well being. If it becomes diseased and doesn't function properly, it can cause weight gain, fatigue, and, in extreme cases, death.

Inflammation of the thyroid gland is a common cause of thyroid disease. While you can take thyroid replacement, wouldn't it be better to find the cause and prevent it? That way you won't be dependent on an external source of hormone to stay alive.

We've known for years that mercury can damage your hormone glands, but have lacked specific proof. But new research gives us the scientific evidence we lacked.

In the study, researchers tested 39 patients with amalgam fillings. They tested the patients with a MELISA allergy test. MELISA is a novel test for sensitivity to metals - in this case mercury.

This overlooked hormone might be the real reason you still struggle with out-of-control blood sugar. But most doctors (even alternative doctors) ignore it completely.

The researchers found that 27 had high levels of measurable allergy. They removed the amalgams from 15, and left them in place in the remaining 12. They measured all of the participants for antibodies attacking their own thyroid gland.

The results showed that removing the mercury led to a drop in these destructive antibodies. Those subjects who did not initially show mercury hypersensitivity did not drop in thyroid antibodies.

Clearly, mercury has caused thyroid disease in many people. Mercury can attach to thyroid proteins and derange them. Then, your white blood cell defenders think that those proteins are foreign and attack them. The result is the slow destruction of your thyroid gland.

If you have any type of thyroid problem, consider a MELISA test for inorganic mercury hypersensitivity. You can call 800-650-7850 for more information or visit on the web.

If positive, please consider getting rid of your amalgams as quickly as possible. Contact for a referral to a clinical metal toxicologist.
