I don't know much about herbal medicine but don't have good insurance. Are there any plant treatments for elevated mercury levels?

In brief: Mercury poisioning

Scientific data does not seem to support the use of alternative treatments for mercury poisoning.
Depending on the cause of the poisoning, standard treatments like oxygen, eye wash, or, possibly, chelation therapy may be used to reduce symptoms and/or remove the mercury itself. Talk to your doctor about the best course of treatment you should use if you are suffering from mercury poisoning.
