Dr. Andrew Hall Cutler passed away at home on July 29, 2017 at approximate 5 am. The cause of death was hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease of long standing.
Andy wished to convey his best wishes to the group members on the success of their endeavors.
Andy did not want to be part of the "dead doctor" conspiracies and sharing the details regarding the circumstances of his death was important to him. It is for this reason that a scanned copy of his death certificate is provided publicly, per his wishes. Out of respect for his memory we provide the truth of his passing and hope that this will quiet those accusations regarding this wonderful man.
Let his memory be of the value of his work and his friendship while he was with us.
How do I describe Andy. He loved music - anything from the Dead Kennedy’s to Baroque. He loved to do new things, eat new foods, see new places. He loved to take care of people. He especially liked to have big parties where he would cook all the food. He always tried to help people when he could.
He was a well known and well respected member of the alternative health care community. He developed a groundbreaking protocol for detoxing heavy metals. He helped thousands of people get healthy, but he was very humble. He could easily admit he didn't know something, but then he would often go off and research it to find an answer.
Andy did more for me than I did for him. Mostly I acted as a sounding board. We talked about the books and current research. I'd do computer searches for him, did some developmental editing, groused about politics, But he was the rock in our relationship.
I often told Andy he was a prince among men. I am so glad that a while ago I spent some time telling him that I was so proud of him. How he gave his time freely to other people and didn't expect anything back. How he really cared about making sure they got better. How he was always their for his friends. How grateful I was for him. How much I appreciated him taking care of me. I am so glad I was able to tell him that while he still lived.

Sorry. Words cannot express the gratitude my wife and I have for Andy and his spreading the word on mercury. I had raised my multiple and severe exposures many times with doctors and dentists and got nowhere. My brother, in treating his bi=polar, got referred to FDC on Yahoo. I had just had one amalgam out unsafely and was in a bad way. Been paying Andy back on the groups for 6 years now.
I've got those missing Andy Cutler, man he left too soon, blues!

I will be forever grateful to Dr. Cutler. I met him on-line not long after my son was vaccine injured and diagnosed with "Heavy Metal Intoxication." He told me what to do, but I was scared.
I joined the autism-Mercury group and he often would advise me. He never lied to me nor ever asked me for a nickel for his advice. Things he told me to do helped, but I was still afraid of chelation.
I bought his book and later the FAW book and finally realized I should've listened to him all along.
We started ACC in January of 2011 when our son was eleven. Our son then just took off. He has made MIRACULOUS improvements across the board. He's gone form moderate-severe/ non-verbal to high functioning and very verbal (although still speech delayed). He continues to make progress, is catching up academically, wants to go to college, and he is learning to drive a car. Dr. Cutler is the reason we have our child back. Our son was VERY chronically sick for nine years, and it wasn't until we began ACC that his immune function began to improve. He hasn't had a single infection now for nineteen months! Dr. Cutler's work gave our child back function, health and QUALITY of life. Because of Andy, our child has a very good chance at an independent future. All the mainstream doctors kept telling us was there was NO HOPE for any improvement ever and we should just institutionalize our son. I will thank God every day that Andy came into our lives, AND that he met Jan and Tressie, and created the the book Fight Autism and Win. I re-read Andy's book once a year, and I learn something new ever time.
How does one ever thank enough the person who gave your child back to you and gave him a real life? I am so saddened by Andy's passing! We will never forget him nor what he did for us.

They say the eyes are the window to the soul. Dr. Cutler was a compassionate teacher and a trail blazer with a big heart and kind eyes. He raised consciousness on a number of important issues. His work will continue to do so through the thousands of lives he has touched.

Andy was to Mercury/Metals what Dr. Shoemaker is to Mold. A true pioneer who changed many lives & will continue to change many based on his legacy.
- Robert Montgomery
I found Andy Cutler's protocol in 2006, looking for a way to heal my son's asthma which I believe he got from a vaccine injury. I've been a member of the kid's chelation group as well as the frequent-dose-chelation adult group every since. I've also sent so many people to check out the protocol and share what I learned from Andy. Brilliant. I am saddened by his death, yes, gone too soon. Much love to you, Dr. Cutler, and so much appreciation!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Here ín Hungary l felt lost with my problems and nobody could help ME tó get out of this hole. IT took ne years tó figure out what was causing all my problems. And this was my 10pcs of amalgam fillings which were removed without any safety protocol. It was the first Time when l saw some light ín the tunnel,when l met Andys book by accident and started to read it. I got tears ín my l after reading about the same symptoms l was suffering from and át the end l knew what was causing it. Since then with the help of Rebecca Rust Lee l am just finished my round 86 ön Alá and Dmps and feel feel much better. I need tó understand that this a marathon and not a sprint ? I bless God to leading me to Andys book and could ask hím for help on the fb group. He was a great Man who helped so many people around the world. Hiszen family can be proud of hím!!! We all will Miss him só much! Göd bless Him!

I just want to say I'm really so sad about Andy Andrew Hall Cutler and that he saved my life. I was in dire straits physically and emotionally. The first thing I did when I suspected Mercury toxicity (after a boat load of thyroid and adrenal research and suffering on my part) was to google books on it and i came across Cutler's book and Hal Huggins and I ordered both. I took the self diagnostic test in Cutler's book and realized I had so many of the symptoms and so I ordered a hair test as he suggested. I knew I met 3 rules which was like a Mercury toxic flush. I emailed him, Andrew Cutler, with the email address he provided in my book and he responded and I was shocked and grateful. He was like a celebrity! I didn't even know there was a FB group. I was just so grateful he responded. I felt so relieved and felt so validated. I had been SO SCARED and so lost and to receive an email back was life changing. It may have been just a day in the life of Andrew Hall Cutler but for me it changed everything. I was up against my family and friends who told me that everything I suspected about Mercury and amalgam removal was dangerous and not to be explored. That it was both expensive and a huge gamble. For the first time in my life I didn't care what doctors or my family said. I knew that my life was in jeopardy I knew I was going to die and I knew that I had to gamble or it was over. And I gambled. I had no money to do this and yet I felt determined. I used a Care Credit card (high interest rate insurance credit card). I knew it was now or never. I knew it would save me or leave me to die. There was no other choice. I jumped... and I lived. Thank you Andrew Cutler. I would not be here if it were not for you and your protocol. Thank you for taking the time to answer my emails in my darkest hour. Mercury poisoning is an unimaginable torment and torture. It's hard to even put into words to those who have not experienced it. Thank you for doing something about it. Eternally grateful for all the people you have helped and will continue to help with your legacy. I started amalgam removal (April 2015-September 2016). I am doing so much better since amalgam removal and low dose chelation. (1-3 mg ALA). Rest In Peace Andy

The two greatest things people can do for you is to give you life and to save your life. Andy saved my life... as simple as that. I started dying in my 40s. I'm sure I was dying. My body was breaking down in pieces, so were my organs, my muscles, tendons... were slowly becoming paralyzed, my mind cognitive skills were disintegrating, my emotions had vanished (especially, the positive ones), I didn't have interest in life, and I was dangerously misinformed (I was using cilantro, chlorella, and other popular stuff to "detox"). I was having dangerous issues with glucose, mitochondrial, adrenal, liver, mental fog, and thyroid... But then one day I found this protocol. I got leftover specks of amalgam removed and I started chelating. I started to feel better immediately and lots of my problems resolved completely or started to resolve. I still have a long way ahead of me but I have no doubt in my mind that if I hadn't found Andy's protocol I would have died an early death since I was feeling like I was in my 90s when I was in my early 40s. Andy is the only person in this world that understood the mercury toxicity holocaust and did all he could do about it. I can never be grateful enough to Andy, who so generously answered so many of my questions personally. He was an exceptional human being. One of these exceptional human beings in the same category as Gandhi or Nelson Mandela or the heroes that save thousands of lives... maybe even millions. He has made history and I hope his work continues to spread universally. He has changed the world and offered people hope and a solution when we felt trapped, hopeless and fatally doomed.

I am a mother of three from Hong Kong (one with autism) and have been a member of the FAW group since 2015. I am so grateful for ACC and I plan to recover my son with it. Dr Cutler has answered my questions on several occasions and I am forever grateful for his dedication and passion on curing people from mercury poisoning. May you rest in peace.

I thank God for the feisty and soulful Andy! You are free and now a heavenly angel instead of an earth angel. Love you, Dear Andy.

Andy was one of a kind teacher. His contribution is immeasurable and the lives he saved and yet to still save are countless. He had unstoppable zest for truth and for life. He opened many eyes, including mine, to the realities that were otherwise not so easily accessible. I often feel like because he was so generous with his time I took his presence on the boards and knowledge he shared tirelessly a bit for granted, and his absence now makes it very obvious... He will be deeply missed.
- Anna Alonova, MA, MT, MFTI (Teah Alan)
It is not easy to put down in words how much of an impact Andy had on my life. He was like an angel, that was send to me to help me gain my health back. He was always there for us all and patiently answered any question no matter how mercury twisted and repetitive they were. He supported me via chat so much while I was in difficult times and always had a good laugh with me as well, when we talked politics and other things next to mercury. I l feel like I lost a second father and will be forever grateful for what he has done for me and thousands of other toxic people. He dedicated so much time to us. He will be in my heart forever. Forever in his depths, - Inci
Being introduced to Andy Cutler chelation protocol has been a turning point for me. I finally feel like i have some hope and positive steps towards recovery. It was always so heartwarming and reassuring to read Andy's responses to members of the ACC facebook group. I learmt so much - he shared his knowledge to so many to help people towards wellness. I miss his witty comments but he has left a network of support to help us all get through now and into the future. Such a clever generous man greatly missed.

I've never met Andy, but as a fellow chemist, I've been impressed with his ground breaking work regarding mercury for years. I implemented his protocol myself recently, and am already seeing positive gains. I truly believe that someday his work will receive the recognition it deserves. For now, suffice it to say that we lost a great man too soon - one whose caring dedication remained entirely unheralded.
I first contacted Andrew in 2013, after stumbling upon his book on the internet after Googling ALA for mercury detoxification. I had already had my amalgams removed but had not taken any precautions. I suspected mercury poisoning, was very ill and seriously obsessed, looking for a cure. I quickly realized this protocol was the only way to salvation, but it still took me over a year to get started with chelation, and another six months to start the low thiol diet which I sorely needed. Mercury poisoning is a serious illness, and this protocol gave me a glimmer of hope. After starting chelation in early 2015, I had prompt relief of some symptoms and worsening of other symptoms. My first year entailed a lot of trial and error, with lots of tummy issues. Over the course the last couple of years I developed a friendship with Andy, we talked about everything from chelation and supplements, to politics and relationships. He was patient, generous and a kind man, and I will forever miss him. I feel lost without him. I never really had a father, Andrew was my only male role model. His great intellect always inspired me, and he always cheered me up with his wonderful sense of humor and invective writing style. I hoped we would have him with us for at least another ten years. I will miss him as a mentor, as a guru, as a chat buddy, and as a friend.
