Dr Chris Shade's background as a pharmacist, environmental chemist and organic farmer eventually led him down an interesting path, doing clinical mercury research.
In today's podcast Dr Shade takes us through the various species of mercury and the synergistic layering that can occur with heavy metals, toxins and other environmental pollutants to the detriment of human health.
Dr Shade has developed comprehensive detoxification systems designed to help peel away the layers of overlapping dysfunction using innovative liposomal technology that revolutionises nutrient delivery for healing.
Dr Chris Shade obtained his Bachelor Degree in Pharmacy and then his Masters in environmental and aqueous chemistry from Lehigh University, Pennsylvania.
He then earned a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois where he studied the environmental and analytical chemistries of mercury as well as advanced aquatic chemistry.
During his Ph.D. work, Dr Shade patented analytical technology for mercury speciation analysis and later founded Quicksilver Scientific, LLC in order to commercialise this technology.
Shortly after starting Quicksilver Scientific, Dr Shade turned his focus to the human aspects of mercury exposure/toxicity and the human detoxification system. Chris has since developed specific clinical analytical techniques for measuring mercury exposure and a system of products to remove metallic and organic toxins by upregulation of innate detoxification biochemistry.
His current focus is at the intersection of neuroinflammatory issues, immune dysregulation, toxicity, and infection – specifically how to peel away the layers of overlapping dysfunction in the sick individual until you get to a point at which the system rights itself.
