Mercury vapour wrapped in saliva may combine with hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach, resulting in reduction of the ability of HCL to promote digestion of food and, in turn, leading to putrefaction, indigestion, heartburn, bloating and constipation alternating with diarrhoea.
When mercury reacts with HCL, mercuric chloride is formed. This substance is used in medicine to kill bacteria. However, it attacks the friendly bacteria in the gut, allowing overgrowth of the yeasts competing for mucosal surfaces. Any treatment to reduce the yeasts, such as nystatin, is subverted when the next dose of mercury vapour comes along.The net result is that Candida is unlikely to be treated successfully until the mercury is taken out of the equation.
Normally, white blood cells engulf invaders and destroy them internally. But when mercury enters the cell, it cannot destroy it. Consequently, the cell responds by absorbing water in an attempt to dilute the poison. Eventually the cell bursts, and the destructive elements are released into the bloodstream and may cause an allergic reaction. Alternatively, cells may divide, with even more worrying implications.
