Christopher Shade, PhD, founder and CEO of Quicksilver Scientific, continues to be the driving force of development and innovation. Dr. Shade’s vast depth and breadth of knowledge, passion for healing, and intuitive understanding of chemistry and biology are reflected in Quicksilver Scientific’s well-designed detoxification protocols, unique supplement delivery systems, and patented mercury speciation test.


Dr. Shade is a recognized expert on mercury and liposomal delivery systems. He has lectured and trained doctors in the U.S. and internationally on the subject of mercury, heavy metals, and the human detoxification system. Dr. Shade's current focus is on the development of cutting-edge, lipid-based delivery systems for nutraceuticals, such as liposomes and micro-emulsion systems, to address the growing need of high quality, affordable detoxification solutions.


We’ll talk with Dr. Shade in this episode about his revolutionary work with nanoparticle-based hormone formulations and how they've transformed the landscape of hormonal health. Dr. Shade also explains the delicate relationship between hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, and the body's detox pathways. We hear about the dangers of heavy metals such as mercury and cadmium on health, critiquing traditional heavy metal chelation methods and exploring more effective modern protocols.


In this episode:

  • How Dr. Chris Shade's personal experience of seeing women with perimenopause influenced his focus on hormone therapy.
  • Why nanoparticle-based hormone formulations revolutionize hormonal health and detoxification.
  • Why nanoparticle delivery systems offer smoother detoxification and fewer side effects.
  • How progesterone's effects on GABA receptors can promote calmness and relaxation.
  • Why heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, and arsenic impact anxiety, fatigue, and thyroid function.
  • How traditional chelation methods compare to modern protocols like EDTA and glutathione.
  • Why ongoing detox efforts are crucial, especially for conditions like Lyme disease and insulin resistance.
  • How high doses of lipoic acid can disrupt metal balance and glutathione levels.
  • Why Dr. Shade dislikes Andy Cutler's chelation protocol and its impact on patients.
  • How substances like cilantro and chlorella vary in effectiveness for natural chelation.
  • What role heavy metals in vaccines may play in the development of autism.
  • Why administering vaccines individually and during good health is important.
  • Why hormone optimization is vital before starting detox treatments.
  • How heavy metals like lead and cadmium can contribute to insulin resistance and hormone dysfunction.
  • How environmental toxins and xenoestrogens may be linked to the rise of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
