Dr Christopher Shade, PhD

The heart, the soul, the curator of Quicksilver Scientific.

The creator of Quicksilver Scientific, Dr. Christopher Shade, is an industry thought-leader who has been collaborating with and informing health practitioners for more than a decade. Working to uncover the curative power of nature through the practice of modern science, he began his career in sustainability – including organic and biodynamic farming. He furthered his understanding of the role our environment plays in our health through his work with the Rodale Institute. He observed a depleted food system and saw supplements as a necessary addition to a healthy diet. Today, he continues to develop products that boost the power of nature through science, helping people on their journey to optimal health.

Born in a toxic steel town, Dr. Shade created Quicksilver Scientific to combat the environmental toxicity he personally experienced. Inspired by philosophy, guided by science, and driven to create, he patented a mercury speciation diagnostic process to analyze human toxicity. In addition, he created Quicksilver Delivery Systems® nanoparticle technology to increase the bioavailability of supplements and protocols leading to higher efficacy products without the prick of a needle.
For more than a decade, Dr. Shade has worked alongside practitioners to fine-tune a system and its applications to restore, maintain, and advance health. To this day, Dr. Shade develops all of our products and protocols and leads the R&D team at Quicksilver Scientific in both our lab and testing facility. 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 for practitioners and patients in the United States and internationally. He has helped corporate executives, professional athletes, celebrities, 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. READ HIS FULL CV
