Daniel explains his really long detox from mercury illness and it is incredible how ill he was. He explains EVERYTHING he did to get better and in great detail. I couldn't put the book down. I couldn't wait to see how it turned out for him and to see if he seems to know what he's talking about and if there is any ramifications for me in his book. The book is like a novel and very well written about his life to his current "ripe old age" of 37. In addition, Daniel uses humor as he tells the story of him as a very sick, toxic, man, husband and father. It is quite an amazing story! Daniel is VERY serious about his road to recovery and all he encountered along the way. He leaves the reader with SO MUCH information (I took copious notes) about how each of us can recover, as well. I am so grateful to Daniel for helping to pave the way for me to get better. I had already done pretty extensive reading a research to get started detoxing, such as (4 months ago) having 9 amalgam fillings removed with a CERTIFIED BIOLOGICAL DENTIST(very important)...which was one of the things Daniel didn't know to do, at the time. Because of Daniel's book, I now know many other things to do to help myself detox both my brain and my body. He gives references for every book he read of the expert's advice...every product he took, every procedure he did and every result he obtained. He discusses his hair test and even printed it in his book, discussing it in detail. He used the Andrew Cutler Protocol and discusses it at length. It's step-by-step...the good, the bad and the ugly. He tells "how" he became mercury toxic and if you're reading this and think this can't be you, think again. All of us on planet earth have some degree of toxicity from our environment. As for mercury, itself (only one of MANY toxins but perhaps the most frightening)....it's in the air, from the mining of coal, it's in our oceans, it's in seafood, it's in the vaccinations of our precious little babies, for heavens sake! And, in flu shots and other vaccinations we are "urged" to have. And, mothers pass it on to their fetuses, from their own mercury contaminated bodies. It's in our contact-lens solutions. And, last but not LEAST, it's in our amalgam (50% mercury) dental fillings. And, every time we chew the mercury vapor is absorbed by our bodily tissues and most of all, our BRAIN! No wonder Alzheimer's Disease is rampant in our time. Seems like there's a "memory care facility" on every corner these days. BIG BUSINESS!!! How's your thinking...a bit (or more) "foggy? I could go on and on....But, Daniel Forsyth says it all. Daniel wants to help. He wants to help anybody and everybody heal from mercury toxicity and other types of toxicity. You would be doing yourself (or someone you care about) a HUGE favor to buy this book. It, truly says it all. And for the record, I do not know the author...at all. Don't know anyone one who knows Daniel. He lives in the UK. But, he's my hero, for sure. Buy his book.....
The author describes his chronology from illness to wellness in detail - giving information on what helped and how he did it. He detailes the what, the how, the when, how often, how long, and all the reactions. The fact that the writer was able to keep such meticulous notes while mercury toxic is amazing. He was rigorous in changing only one treatment, or dosage at time, and recording the responses and symptoms in detail, which is very helpful for those trying to figure out their own path to recovery. This book also made clear how determined and disciplined I may need to be to regain my health. Like an expeditionary journal of someone who's made it to the South Pole, if you were interested in reaching the South Pole, you would absolutely want to read their expedition journal.
His experience a product of all that he has learned through extensive research and he shares with his readers the results of his hard work. This book will save me hundreds of hours of internet searching. He also offers helpful resources, books, forums and other tips he has learned along the way either from experience or from others. There is helpful content on a vast range of health topics from detoxing, to digestive health, heartburn, back pain, adrenal issues, thyroid issues, food sensitivies, dry brushing, Cutler's chelation protocol, saunas, castor oil, heart issues, cat allergy, colon health, the list goes on. This book was greatly helpful on a multiple of levels: understanding the rigor and work required in getting better, understanding the body as a system, and then detailed information on how to implement various techniques/protocols that we are often advised to do, but don't get all the information on the reactions that you might experience as a result.
Mr Forsyth's "Mercury Diaries" helped make the Cutler detox protocal much more assessible. I read this book before reading Cutler's "Amalgam Illness", and "Mercury Diaries" makes Cutler's work much less opaque. Despite having attended a competitive engineering college and having a natural interest in biochemistry, I found Cutler's book overwhelming without a sense of where to start.
It is clear that the author wrote this with the primary intent of helping others recover. And I am ever grateful for his abundant generosity in sharing this information and personal experience.
My hatred for doctors and dentists can't even be put into words the amount of grief they have put me through. The worst swear words don't even begin to describe how I feel about them. As the author expressed his feelings toward our medical establishment, I totally agree with him. Dentist that still put this s#%& in people's mouth should be banned from practice, have their eyeballs gouged out, fill their teeth full of mercury, and drop them off in Siberia out in the wilderness. Doctors that are ignorant on this subject should be offered the same.
Anyways, I can't wait to get through chelation so I can get my life back again that my ignorant and stupid doctors took from me.
It infuriates me that others especially little kids get this crap put into them without them knowing about it whether it would be amalgam fillings, vaccines, or heavy metals inherited from their mom. Our medical establishment including the ADA and FDA is a money sucking scam.

Some may find Daniel's style unusual but this is his personality shining through the writing. it is written in a way which is easy reading, amusing and informative too.
If mercury does not cause all these problems, then why do dentists dispose if it with so many safety precautions and why is it widely reported about the dangers of mercury emission from cremations?
I was incensed before but even more now.
This is a brave and brilliant guide, buy it!
Two months ago I learned that all my symptoms extend from the same source: mercury toxicity, which has resulted from the placement of amalgam fillings in my mouth. I have also been poisoned by other toxic heavy metals from dentistry and from the environment. If I hadn't read Daniel Forsyth's The Mercury Diaries I wouldn't have been able to confirm my suspicion that this was the case, and I wouldn't have known where to start or how to continue with getting better.
It is an account of a man's struggle to regain his health in the face of grave, incapacitating illness, but is as far from a 'misery memoir' as it's possible to get. Not for one moment is it depressing or self-pitying. In fact, it's just the opposite. Daniel is a London City trader and self-confessed 'bloke', and his robust, positive, inspiring tone resonates throughout with bonhomie and humour.
It's a pacy and entertaining read, often very funny, which is all the more impressive when confronted with the author's assertion that he isn't a writer. He's written this book primarily to help others with the same core health issue as his own and secondarily as a literary exercise but, despite his protests to the contrary, he is a naturally talented writer. His voice rings authentically from the page and he's an excellent communicator.
Before you know it, you're caught up in the details of Daniel's day-to-day life as it unfolded through years spent discovering the nature of his illness, and the numerous alternative health methodologies he went on to explore and utilise in the pursuit of making himself better. It's hugely involving, with frequent injections of laughter throughout, never moreso for me than when he's tossing off wacky personal idioms: "Village!"
The evident purpose of the book is to clarify the steps people need to take in order to determine whether or not they are suffering from heavy metal poisoning, and to explain and demystify the various elements of the detox and recovery process. Daniel covers everything the newbie needs to know in crystal clear detail, from which books to read and the importance of self-education, to safe amalgam replacement, to diet, to adrenal support, to ordering specific lab tests, to taking your temperature so you can determine thyroid health, to choosing the right supplements and dosages to support your ravaged mind and body, and all points in between.
In doing so he has performed a genuine public service. Since reading The Mercury Diaries I've leapt onto the sometimes giddily steep learning curve necessary to get yourself better, and I bless this book for preparing the ground so well. Things would have seemed so much more daunting without it, of that I am certain.
For all that it entertains, Daniel's story is no joke. This man was chronically and seriously ill with an idiopathic illness that mainstream medicine could not and would not help him with. Instead he was given banks of tests and examinations, told he was fine, and condescendingly dismissed with an entreaty to 'go home and enjoy your health' when he was patently at death's door.
His disgust for the mainstream medical establishment is apparent. I don't share it to the same extent, but I have recently been finding out first hand exactly how limited and unhelpful mainstream medicine can be with a problem like amalgam poisoning. Anyway. Daniel wouldn't take no for an answer, determined to take control of his own health, and dived instead into the world of alternative medicine.
Alternative healthcare is rife with fakes and charlatans and well-meaning but credulous pseudoscience. It also contains good science and offers effective treatments that mainstream medicine doesn't. The trick is to be smart and discerning, and to be careful when trying new approaches and interventions. Daniel has done this, and his resourcefulness led him to discover the central tentpole of his recovery plan: the Cutler Protocol.
You can Google Andrew Hall Cutler and find out about this remarkable man's innovative work, which is rescuing thousands of lives from misery even as I write. A biochemist with a PhD from Princeton, he was struck by what he calls a 'mystery syndrome'. With the help of an environmental doctor he determined that its cause was mercury from his dental amalgams, and his knowledge of biochemistry enabled him to develop a detox protocol with which he healed himself. He subsequently chose to share it with the public, and it is now considered the safest and most effective protocol in the world for healing illness caused by heavy metal toxicity.
You'll find out about it in The Mercury Diaries, as well as enjoying a gripping and redemptive narrative. This is the primer you need to point you in the right direction if you've got inexplicable, apparently incurable symptoms either physical, mental or both that mainstream medicine just can't seem to help you with.
