What Practitioners Are Saying

Matthew Mintz

MD, FACP

The Quicksilver Scientific Institute course didMD, FACP an excellent job presenting knowledge-based information that allowed me both to understand the principles of detoxification on a scientific basis and also become familiar with the products Quicksilver offers that utilize these principles.  Since taking the course, I have applied the protocols to multiple patients with great success.  I look forward to some of the newly planned courses that QSI plans to offer.

Courtney Ross

CFMP, CPT

I really enjoyed QSI! While I try to watch as many of Dr Shade’s webinars as I can, this put everything succinctly in one place so I can watch when it worked for me. I am a visual learner, so the videos are great. While I knew much of the info, these really helped tie everything together.
I definitely feel more confident using this info when communicating with clients. Having the tools to help them reach their goals is invaluable.

Julie A James

MSPT, FDN-P, BCFDNP, CHWC

The QSI Heavy Metals and Detoxification Course provided such valuable information that I use daily in my client practice. In particular, the Detox Protocol Decision Tree has made selecting the best protocol for each client's needs and sensitivities so much more individualized and effective. These products are amazing, and I feel my clients are getting better results when detoxing and clearing heavy metals than I ever did prior to learning about Quicksilver. I highly recommend Quicksilver Scientific and QSI.

Jennie Miremadi

MS, CNS, LDN

I am so impressed with the courses that I've taken with the Quicksilver Scientific Institute thus far. The team at Quicksilver has provided so much valuable information, not only giving practitioners a deep dive into the science of detoxification but also providing an in-depth understanding of how Quicksilver's protocols safely and effectively support detoxification.

Jessica Liggero

HHP

I truly enjoyed taking the Quicksilver Scientific Institute Heavy Metals and Detoxification Principals course and I find the information to be so useful in my practice. Having access to Quicksilver Scientific's metals testing that measures both forms of mercury has allowed me to create successful protocols for my clients. I have even been able to help someone reverse a lifelong case of motion sickness after testing for metals and understanding how to properly support detoxification in their body. I highly recommend this course to everyone. You will learn a lot and be able to directly apply this knowledge to your practice and help people get their health back.
