 “Don’t Settle for “It’s Your Hormones Honey!”

Going from doctor to doctor and hearing “It’s your hormones honey,” made me want to scream!  As an educated person, degreed in Psychology and Dentistry, I knew there were answers I wasn’t getting.

The many doctors I consulted with were stymied, as my persistent and chronic symptoms were so varied.  Having no connection with one another, they did not know what to call my illness. Grappling with various labels, and unable to identify a cause, the symptoms were classified as idiopathic.

Sick and tired of living with a laundry list of debilitating chronic symptoms including mental confusion, irritability, short temper, memory loss, uncontrollable bursts of anger, tingling/numbness in my hands and feet, muscle spasms, rectum and vaginal pain which felt like a stabbing knife, carpel tunnel, sore throats, urinary infections, ulcerated esophagus, reflux, irritable bowel, acne, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, tremors, overwhelming fatigue, slurred speech, neck & shoulder pain, depression, anxiety attacks, low self esteem, hearing problems, blurred vision, headaches, heart palpitation, irregular menstruation and a miscarriage at 5-1/2 months while in my senior year of dental school.  WOW!!!!  Hormones?  I don’t think so!

I was a walking medical disaster, and I emphasize WAS.  At the suggestion of my brother I attended a seminar.  There, I learned that the myriad of symptoms I had been battling for years were most probably not of hormonal origin, but a direct result from occupational exposure to mercury from placing/removing silver-amalgam fillings, as well as  the fillings in my own mouth.

Motivated to research the toxicity of mercury in silver/amalgam fillings, I discovered from many governmental agency such as the (ATSDR) Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry, (NIOSH) National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, the manufacturers of the silver-amalgam material safety data sheets, and other reliable sources. I found that that these fillings are a potential health risk.  Interesting, silver-amalgam fillings are classified as hazardous waste prior to placement in the body and hazardous waste after removal from the body.  I was in shock to learn that the mercury in these fillings is released in the form of a vapor.  I was taught the mercury is locked in and can not come out.  We know that mercury is a neurotoxin, but I wasn’t taught to what degree, that my unborn or the children I nursed could also be harmed by these vapors.

Here I was, I found out that I was misinformed about the fillings.  It was my wake-up call to question what I knew and see where that would lead me. The more I learned the more I realized that my health had been severely compromised by my own mercury amalgam filling and occupational exposure.  I knew enough from dental school and my research to know that upon removal of the mercury amalgam the amount of mercury exposure increases as it is drilled.  Thus, you are likely to receive a large exposure.  I sought out a dentist trained in minimizing this problem.  Following removal of the fillings, I sought help from many physicians trained to treat people with mercury toxicity.  Having the fillings removed is just the beginning of a long road to recovery because the mercury had been absorbed into the body.

I had begun a ten year journey of recovery with the realization that I had been mislead about something that I thought was helping people.  I took this increased awareness and began a quest for answers.  I used my scientific intellect to ravenously research ways to support the body.  I reached out to many other healers, and I used my spiritual intent to know that our bodies are self-healing.

It took five years of treatment, now nearly 10 years post removal, and I have regained my life.  The good news is people can improve their health with the help of doctors who learn how to diagnosis and treat the mysterious symptoms from chronic mercury poisoning/allergy.

After my own quest for health and all that I have heard and learned from my patients, I know with clarity the power we have to heal.  We just need to be pointed in the right direction and given awareness of our available tools.  I know that this can be a daunting task to people, especially if they are ill.  This is why I like to work with people to support and guide them on how they can start on their own journey.  With my medical background, research capability, and the wealth of information I have gathered through my healing journey, I feel I can give people the start they need to find their healing modalities as well as coach them through their quest for health.

It is my wish that you don’t settle for less.  You need to believe in yourself, your instincts, do your homework and don’t accept being sick without questioning what the cause might be.  Below I have attached a list of symptoms that will help you in your journey!  Don’t settle for “it’s all in your head or it’s your hormones honey!!!”  Dr. Diane Meyer

Dr. Diane Meyer, B.S, D.D.S. – Holistic Dentist, Mercury-Free Dentist, Cosmetic Dentist, Safe-Amalgam Removal, Biofeedback, Root Canal Removal, Electrodermal Screenings, Autoimmune Disorders, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, Heavy Metal Detoxification – Downers Grove, Chicago, Woodridge, Westmont, Hinsdale Illinois


Dr. Diane Meyer has been extensively trained in the mouth and body connection. Her entire working career of 36 years has been in the dental field at one capacity or another. She started out in high school at age 16 as a dental assistant trained at Davea.  Dr.Meyer graduated from Elmhurst College with a B.S. degree in Psychology in addition to excelling in Physiology and Biology. She held positions as a student liaison for the Chicago Dental Society and Secretary Treasurer while attending Loyola University Dental School. She graduated in 1991, 6th in her class for Operative Dentistry.

Dr. Meyer believes that patients cannot experience the best overall health without addressing the body's basic nutritional needs. She utilizes many health care practitioners as well as her own knowledge to reach this end. Comprehensive testing helps to minimize the immune systems reactions to all things put into/on the body.

It has never been a more exciting time to be a dentist, as dentistry and medicine move closer together.  Recent studies have shed light on a whole new arena of dentistry by proving that the health of your mouth can affect the overall health of your body. Decreasing the patient's exposure to known toxins/allergens through Serum Bio- Compatibility testing and biofeedback scanning while optimizing the immune system with adequate nutrition is the hallmark of my practice philosophy. Having been mercury poisoned myself I have the utmost respect for these highly toxic substance.

"I feel it is my purpose in life to educate and guide patients to the research available so they can understand the importance of the choices 'they' make concerning their life style and treatment in achieving maximum results in overall health and wellness. 'Empowerment with knowledge', gives the patient an added advantage of taking control of their quest for health."

Dr. Meyer shares her love of dentistry with her family. She has a brother, two uncles, and four cousins that are practicing dentists, one sister who is a dental hygienist, and another is her office manager.


Dr. Meyer also recently published a book called Pick Your Poisons1.  This book can be purchased through the following link on line:  Pick Your Poisons by Dr. Diane Meyer

After my eye opening experience with mercury, which is the main component in silver fillings, and the ill health effects my family experienced, I was determined to educate as many people who would be willing to listen. I started in 1998 educating my patients to this toxin and have not placed another amalgam silver mercury filling since. I dedicate my life now to helping people whom the medical community shun as being crazy or hormonal the way they once did me. I liken my work to an “Erin Brockovich” of dentistry, looking to solve the mystery of many ailments.

In our office we use digital radiography which allows us to take x-rays using up to 90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays.  Using this technology, we are able to take an x-ray of your mouth by using a small sensor which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer.  The result is a highly detailed image of your mouth that can easily be enhanced to better diagnosis dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case.   We use small cameras about the size of a pen, called intraoral cameras, to help clearly see the condition of your teeth and gums.  With this advanced technology we can zoom in on small diseased areas, cracks, chips and worn metal fillings with extreme precision. The full-color images taken with the intraoral camera are sent to a computer screen so we can clearly see and diagnose dental problems much earlier than with traditional dental technology.  As images are displayed on our screens, patients will also be able to see areas being worked on and are able to gain a better understanding of dental procedures being performed.

It is when you know better then you can do better.
