Taking such a large daily dose of ALA if you are mercury toxic will free up mercury, then redistribute it in a matter of hours to new parts of the body where it will likely cause more harm than if you left it alone.
People can get very, very sick from improper use of chelation agents. This can include paralysis, and possibly death. I doubt if ALA will do that to you in those doses, but it won't help unless your mercury levels are not too bad to begin with.
Thanks wintergreen. I appreciate it. On my 8 days off ot DMSA is when I take the ALA which is included in Basic Detox Nutrients(a multivatim), and Heavy metal support(restores minerals taken out by DMSA). Also on the 8 days off, I am going to be making this cilantro paste, theres a recipe I found. which will be good. How long from your experience and knowledge do you think I would notice a difference in my mental state of mind? Along with weekly colon hydrotherapies and colonics. and saunas on DMSA days ofcourse. Thanks wintergreen. - Mike
I think you're on a wrong path with your chelation regimen, but you will need the input of other people concerning this. I've done my best, and I don't know whether you'll get much in the way of useful advice here. Several of the more knowledgeable posters in the Cutler and the Chelation forums have left, I think. Johnny Vegas left after forming the group, and I don't think TK or Anne post here anymore. There are some others, but they post more sporadically. I'm soon to follow them. While I hate the format of the Yahoo groups, the level of expertise is much higher there.
I'm not just trying to sell you on Cutler Protocol orthodoxy. You can see different views debated on the Autism Mercury group. Dialogue is at a more in-depth level, so you will be in a better position to decide where you want to go.
