The most accurate form of mercury testing is a urine challenge test performed by a doctor. Usually these are done by iv with dmps, edta or by mouth with dmsa. Most of the time three samples are taken throughout the day and are sent to the lab to verify the presence of heavy metals. The test is extremely accurate because the chelators pull the mercury from the soft tissues of the body, which gives you an overall idea of the true mercury load in your body.
You can also get a heavy metal blood test from your doctor. However, I have seen these tests come back ok but further testing by urine challenge testing showed mercury levels off the charts. Blood mercury testing is not as accurate as you would think because mercury gets stuck in the soft tissues and will not show up on the blood test.
The easiest way to test for mercury to see if you have high levels or not, is by using this Urine Mercury Testing Kit that you use at home. Because mercury is normally detoxed by the body through the colon and you don't use a chelator with this kit, any positive reading is to high and needs to be treated.
You can also use a Mineral Hair Analysis test kit to detect mercury poisoning. Once you have received the hair test kit follow the manufacturers directions.
Hair testing is more accurate than the urine test kit above. I recommend this Mineral Hair Analysis kit which also checks levels of Calcium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Molydbdenum, Strontium, Sulfur, Vanadium and Zinc. In addition too the above minerals, it also checks for the toxic metals Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Bismuth, Cadmium, Lead, Mercury, Nickel and Tin.
If you don't have a mercury problem you can skip that part of the yeast infection treatment protocol. If you do have a problem with mercury or other heavy metals, follow the directions on the mercury treatment page below.
