I had my fillings removed by my family dentist. (It only cost my $75 as my insurance covered it). She didn't use a rubber dam and the exposure to the mercury cause my Fibromyalgia to come back, big time along with a bad headache. I went to my reflexologist and he gave me some herbs (3 of them and the only one I can remember is the White Oak) to brew into tea. I drank 2oz of this every hour (12 hours a day) for 3 days. All symptoms were gone in 3 days.
I'm just so glad the mercury is out of my system. Now I don't have to worry about it slowly seeping into my body for years and years. It was well worth the "short term" sickness to get them out.
Maybe you can start a cleansing program before you go into get another quadrant removed and then continue with it. She how that works. Maybe it won't be as bad and you'll feel like getting the rest done. Also, ask your doctor to use a rubber dam. I asked mine and she said she doesn't use them, but it sure doesn't hurt to ask. My dentist's assistant tried extra hard to suction up all the bits of mercury as she knew how concerned I was about being in contact with it.
