Christopher Shade, PhD

Mercury Specialist

Dr. Christopher Shade specializes in the biological, environmental, and analytical chemistry of mercury in all its forms and their interactions with sulfur compounds, particularly glutathione and its enzyme system. He has patented a mercury speciation diagnostic process to analyze human toxicity, founded the only clinical lab in the world offering mercury speciation analysis, and has designed cutting edge systems of nutraceuticals for detoxification and antioxidant protection. His Quicksilver Delivery Systems nanoparticle technology increases the bioavailability of supplements and protocols, leading to higher efficacy products. Dr. Shade is regularly sought out to speak as an educator on the topics of mercury, environmental toxicities, neuroinflammation, immune dysregulation, and the human detoxification system, both in the United States and internationally. He has helped professional athletes, children with autism, patients with chronic immune disorders, and more. He strives to evolve the way the medical industry delivers care, and he is perpetually broadening the way the world understands health.


Integrating Detoxification and Metabolic Fitness, and Mitochondrial Health as Core Pillars for Vital Immunity and Longevity

The strength and resilience of the immune system is more important than ever as we continue to navigate global-reaching dynamics affecting health. Often, therapies and protocols include foundational nutrients like vitamin D, C and A and herbal remedies like elderberry and mushrooms, however this approach may not be sufficient in addressing the root cause behind depressed immune function. In fact, the deepest levels of immune resilience are predicated by these multi-factorial, systemic pillars:

  • Toxic load and detoxification abilities
  • Metabolic dysfunction and optimization
  • Mitochondrial health and function

Although foundational nutrients are critical in supporting immune health, other nutraceuticals and therapeutic interventions are necessary to safeguard immune vigilance and function and healthy aging. In this webinar, Dr. Shade will discuss the mechanisms behind each pillar of immune health, as well as therapeutic approaches to support proper detoxification, robust NAD+ levels, and AMPK activation to strengthen vital immunity and longevity.
