About the Author

Hal A. Huggins DDS, MS, the world's most controversial dentist because of his stand on trying to convince dentistry to stop the use of mercury in fillings, has been in practice 42 years in Colorado Springs. He is a leading pioneer in identifying toxic dental materials and balancing body chemistry. Over the past four decades, he developed a multi-disciplined health care model that has been influential in improving autoimmune diseases such as MS, Lupus, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's. Other symptoms such as chronic fatigue, depression, and memory and digestive problems have also responded.

Dr. Huggins earned a post-doctoral Master's with emphasis on immunology and toxicology from the University of Colorado. Controversial in his stand against deception in dental regulations and practices, Dr. Huggins has been on the cutting edge of dentistry since the beginning of his practice. Once the darling of the American Dental Association and a speaker at many of the major dental conventions, his vigorous stand against silver (mercury) amalgams finally resulted in his losing his dental license in 1996 for "refusing to place or recommend placing silver amalgams and refusing to recommend or place root canals."

During the past 42 years, Dr. Huggins has lectured over 1400 days in 46 states and 13 foreign countries to professional and lay groups and has given over 1000 radio, TV and print media interviews. He has published over 50 articles concerning nutrition, child growth and development, mercury toxicity, root canals and cavitations, and he is the author of several books including:

Who makes your hormones HUM??? -Why do we like some people, and dislike others? Who are we attracted to, and who repels us? They are all nice people, it's just that we have "vibes" with some folks, and others we don't. Why? Dynamics of human interactions are dictated by genetics and are not subject to change. Interpretation is the result of endocrine action (testosterone, estrogen, thyroid, pituitary and more), not logic. Logic has nothing to do with it. It's all in who makes your hormones hum.

Solving the MS Mystery – based on 33 years experience and treatment of 1000 MS patients, this book shows that toxic dental materials in the mouth so close to the brain can trigger many autoimmune diseases including MS, Alzheimer's, Lupus, and Chronic Fatigue. Includes the Protocol that has worked to reverse these and other autoimmune diseases.

Your Goose Isn't Cooked—Yet!– a cookbook/nutrition book with mini-chapters that reveal information usually given only during his body chemistry lectures. This book covers the functions of blood, dental decay and degenerative diseases along with nutrition, meal planning, and cooking tips to balance the body chemistry. Contains over 230 recipes.

It's All In Your Head– designed to create awareness concerning problems and solutions involving diseases potentially generated from toxic substances (mercury, nickel, copper, etc.) in dental material.

Uninformed Consent - the hidden dangers in dental care (with Dr. Thomas Levy) – a book on diseases related to dental materials other than amalgam.

Why Raise Ugly Kids? – a book on child growth and development with emphasis on prevention of orthodontics, and orthopedic and nutritionally related problems. In his spare time, Dr. Huggins has discovered astounding research that has rocked the dental profession in the USA and in other countries. His studies led to the breakthrough that many people suffer immune suppression due to the presence of their dental fillings. This challenged the 160 year old assumption that silver-mercury fillings as well as other toxic metals were safe simply because they had been used previously.

Through his research in the toxicity of mercury and other dental materials, he found out that chronic fatigue and a wide array of auto-immune diseases may be linked to these materials. He developed a system that improves the quality of the immune system and all

I gave this book only four stars for a couple of reasons. Despite its profound importance and excellent content on dental amalgam as the underlying cause of a great number of today's illnesses which have mercury as the root etiology, the content is unfortunately not up to date on certain technical issues. For example, he asserts that methylcobalamin will methylate inorganic mercury and is therefore dangerous. While it is true that some bacteria can methylate the mercuronic ion, and that this reaction can be made to occur in a laboratory test tube, this is not what happens in real live human beings or animals when given subcutaneously, intramuscularly, or intravenously. This was confirmed to me in personal communication with Boyd Haley, PhD, who has done much work in this field. In addition, please refer to the work done by the Swedish physician, Dr Britt Ahlrot-Westerlund, and her success with treating patients with high doses of injectable methylcobalamin status post amalgam removal for further elucidation on this subject. (One should be cautioned however, not to accept any B-12 injections which contain a preservative, as this can cause problems in a detoxing patient. Also, some people experience angry agitated aggression and can get themselves into trouble even though it is helpful for most.)

Huggin's approach to "balancing chemistries" is somewhat misguided, since this does not actually detoxify the system, but rather make it work better while the mercury remains in place. Thus it is a permanent lifestyle change - well worthwhile in terms of symptom reduction - rather than an intervention that can be stopped at some future point in time. While diet and supplements are paramount to the detoxification process, one will not get well if they are very poised unless they chelate.

Hal Huggins is a Colorado Springs dentist who was an extremely respected until he started to speak about his beliefs on the safety of mercury-laden "silver amalgam" fillings, beliefs cannot be reconciled with the world according to the ADA. These beliefs initially brought him a lot of respect, even an appearance on "60 Minutes," and then brought upon him the wrath of the ADA.

I very strongly suspect that another reviewer of this book is correct in her assertion that there is a better way to treat some - perhaps most - forms of MS. I cannot speak to other ideas the reviewer entertains. Were I a health-care professional, I am not sure that I would feel safe encouraging the use of medications not approved by the FDA, even if scientists know quite well that they work and how they work, from their use in Russia, Poland and Germany. All the same, I was extremely impressed by this book, as it is far and away the most thoughtful and thorough book I have read on the causes of multiple sclerosis, and unsparing in its willingness to tell the truth and the whole truth, however controversial it may be. There are other books on the subject, but none of them provide as much documentation (and lab results) or are nearly as convincing as Dr. Huggins' book. Dr. Huggins' book is the only one I know of that mentions that the symptoms of MS can also be caused by infections that are almost never diagnosed.

Dr. Huggins has had his problems with the medical authorities, and has detractors who want to believe that just because he disagrees with them means he must be wrong. Such people are prone to bandy epithets like "quack" and the like.

For almost 40 years now we've been lied to by Big Pharma about my wife's MS. The biggest lie is " it can't be cured ". I first want to know exactly what causes it. I'm an engineer and every thing has a reason and I want all of the reasons. I then want to know " how do we fix the problem ". I have read numerous books on this subject and spent hours on the internet studying. This book has given me more useful information than anything I have found yet. It explains what, then gives a breakdown on all of the details and how to resolve the problem.

If only I would have bought this book a few months earlier than I did, I could have avoided a life threatening illness after my root canal extraction was not done according to this protocol and a cow bone graft was implanted, which later got infected...taking me from complete recovery to deathbed, parents bringing me meals. A Huggin's dentist, Blanche Grube, saved my life. This is THE best book available for anyone with MS or any chronic condition and a root canal, mercury filling or wisdom tooth extraction. I saw another reviewer mention that B12 doesn't methylate mercury. Yes it does. Even 100 mcg orally caused me weakness which immediately resolved upon stopping the supplement. When I read this book, I knew I finally found someone who I could learn something from about MS. Every neurologist has no idea what the hell they're doing...treated MS with immune suppressants. They will never realize that it is the chronic infections and metal toxicities that are causing immune overload leading to immune malfunction and autoimmunity. They just suppress the immune system, causing more immune overload. Nice to see that the price got jacked up to 45 bucks all of a sudden. I guess too many lives were being saved for big pharma/fda/ama/ada's liking. It's worth every penny even if it's 200 bucks. It's cheaper on huggins applied healing website though.
