Removal of Dental Materials must be done by a skilled dentist that is careful to keep the patient from being harmed by the materials while they are removed. Several extra precautions should be taken, including using oxygen during the procedure. I have known persons that were harmed because the proper precautions were not followed. The materials and procedures should be thoroughly researched through your doctor, MCS consultant, or Dental Amalgam Mercury Syndrome (DAMS). International DAMS Newsletter. P.O. Box 64397, Virginia Beach, VA, 23467-4397. Phone: 800-311-6265 Contact: Teresa Kaiser. www.snowcrest.net/lassen/eiorgs.html#dent

The Cure for All Diseases, Hulda Regehr Clark. New Century Press; 17th edition. December 1995. Instruction and education of the role that chemicals and parasites play in illnesses, based on parasite, kidney, and liver cleanses. www.amazon.com
On-line Information from Hulda Clark, Ph.D. It is difficult to test for the presence of parasites, so relief of symptoms after the herbal treatment can indicate the presence of parasites. The electrical equipment is not generally used by MCS persons. www.drclark.ch Click on Dr. Clark's Protocol: Info section.
Immunodeficiency - Poor resistance to viral or bacterial infections
IgG subclasses deficiency. A poor resistance to viral or bacterial infections may be the result of IgG subclasses deficiency. These are antibodies, some of which fight viruses and bacteria. If you are low in these antibodies, you may be eligible for immune globulin or gammaglobulin IM or IV, intramuscular or intravenous injections. The preservative free gammaglobulin is preferred by MCS persons.
