Andy Cutler is the guru of heavy metal chelation. His protocol involves taking frequent doses of a chelating agent (ALA, DMSA, DMPS). The timing of the doses is critical and is done every few hours to ensure constant plasma levels of the chelator. This way there is less redistribution of mercury = less unpleasant side effects. Make no mistake chelation can have many unpleasant, serious side-effects. Not something which should be rushed into or taken lightly.

Cilantro is frowned upon by Cutler and followers who say that it has unknown pharmacokinetics. It may also be difficult to standardise dosages - presumably you would have to know the active ingredients to do this reliably (no one knows how/why cilantro chelates metals).
Cilantro (Chinese Parsley) removes lead, mercury and aluminum
Aga, M. et all and 17 other Japanese researchers studied the effects of Chinese parsley (Coriandrum Sativum), otherwise known a Cilantro, on lead deposits in mice. The researchers report:
"The preventive effect of Chinese parsley (Coriandrum Sativum) on lead deposition was investigated in male ICR mice given lead (1000 ppm) as lead acetate trihydrate in drinking water for 32 days. Administration of Chinese parsley to mice by gastric intubation was performed for 25 days from day 7 after the start of lead exposure up to the end of the experiment. "
They report that "Administration of Chinese parsley significantly decreased lead deposition in the femur and severe lead-induced injury in the kidneys. In addition, urinary excretion of delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) which is known to increase with lead intake was significantly decreased after administration of Chinese parsley."
They added: These results suggest that Chinese parsley has suppressive activity on lead deposition, probably resulting from the chelation of lead by some substances contained in Chinese parsley. (1)
In an earlier published study, Omura and Beckman report that "In the spring of 1995, use of Chinese parsley for successful elimination of Hg (mercury) deposits existing in various organs of the first author as the result of the decay of radioactive Thallium 201 injected for cardiac SPECT, was accidentally discovered after eating Vietnamese soup, which happened to contain Chinese parsley, also called cilantro. We also found Chinese parsley accelerates the excretion of Hg, Pb, and A1 from the body though the urine." (2)
The researchers found that antibiotic therapy for a herpes infection was successful only after the Cilantro treatment. They concluded that the heavy metals somehow protected the herpes virus.

It should be noted that lead, mercury, aluminum and other heavy metals are strong inducers of interleukin-6 and other TH2 cytokines. Heavy metal toxicity is likely to prevent recovery from HIV/AID, chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, candidiasis, herpes and other chronic infections that do not respond to treatment.
One or two tablespoons of fresh cilantro daily sprinkled in salsa, over a salad or in soup should be helpful in reducing heavy metals and IL-6. Cilantro in tablets or capsules is also available. Monitor (lab tests) for heavy metals before and after using Cilantro to determine its effectiveness.
