Toxicity from airborne Mercury affects the nervous system and also the immune system, the brain, lungs and kidneys. High levels of elemental mercury exposure can cause health issues. There have also been documented neurological problems and behaviour issues of mercury exposure, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Symptoms toxic mercury can produce:
- Trouble sleeping
- Muscle tremors or weakness
- Trouble walking or coordinating movements
- Speech problems
- Vision problems
Mercury itself is a naturally occurring element, it is present throughout the environment, plants and animals, but human activity is the release of this elemantal pollutant. As researched from https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/mercury-and-health, ‘ Human activity is the main cause of mercury, particularly from coal-fired power stations, residential coal burning for heating and cooking, many industrial processes, waste incinerators and as a result of mining for mercury, gold and other metals.’
An amount of airborne mercury is then released and overtime finds its way into lakes, rivers, oceans, air and the soil. Toxic pollutant Mercury goes into the environment, it accumulates in water sediments where it converts into methylmercury and enters the food chain. In the environment it can be transformed by bacteria into methylmercury. People may be exposed to mercury in many different ways like the methylmercury can accumulate over time in fish and shellfish or through a workers inhalation of mercury vapours during some industrial processes.
Airborne pollutant Mercury is toxic to the human body and is ingested in the body as well as breathed or absorbed into an opening in the body. Mercury likes fatty tissues and it can get into major organs such as the brain the liver and kidneys. In research it can cross the normally protective blood-brain barrier and enter the brain. It can also readily move through the placenta to developing fetuses and their developing brains
In research it was noted that you can help detox your body from toxic mercury by adding selenium into your diet. Selenium is a mineral that can help remove mercury and has other health benefits as well. Selenium is a great antioxidant that fights oxidative stress and helps your body defend from chronic conditions. It also helps to boost the immune system, metabolism and aids in heart issues, thyroid, and mental decline
These will help in removing toxic mercury out of the body as they contain good amounts of selenium:
Use Organic when possible as less metallic build-up
- Brazil nuts
- Lima beans
- Chia seeds
- Sesame seeds
- Spinach or eating lots of organic dark leafy green vegetables
- Any Vitamin C like for eg, fruit or Camu Camu powder
- Drink lots of filtered Water to help your body flush out unnecessary substances
- The herb cilantro – coriander is a good help at detoxing mercury from the body

Of the healthcare system, I have found organic natural ways are vital to improving health and is a big part of healing my multiple sclerosis symptoms. The main purpose is to find healthier alternative ways to better the natural energies we have in existence. Be naturally proactive for your health and well-being.
