I am from the UK and am currently having my Amalgams
removed (final 2 removed next week) after which i am going to begin natural chelation using a product called HMD (Heavy Metal Detox) which is a synergy of Cilantro, Chlorella and Chlorella Growth Factor. The reason I have chosen to use this supplement is because firstly it is a non-drug choice and secondly it has been backed up by a 3 year £1million double blind placebo trial which showed it to be excellent at chelating heavy metals with little or no side effects (varying from person to person). I havent started using it yet but i have my first bottle at home waiting and am confident it is the right choice (we will soon see!)
As for doctors, I have been seeing a naturopath (ex GP now naturopathic) who also recommended HMD and agreed that it was the right choice because of the research it has undergone, she is also assisting me with candida, leaky gut and food sensitivities
/ intolerances which are all entangled with the mercury problem! She is based in Manchester.
I am addressing the mercury detox first before tackling candida and leaky gut, as candida will not clear fully while mercury is still at large in your system and its best not to overburden your body with too many things at once.
I am currently taking Milk thistle supplement to support my liver throughout the whole process, as well as a good multivitamin with 1000mg Vitamin C, Selenium supplement for antioxidant support and garlic capsules 2000mg per day.
For leaky gut i will be taking L-Glutamine 1500mg daily, i am currently taking 500mg for initial support and will increase once i begin the candida diet and anti-fungal regime, including using chlorella supplement to mop up any mercury released from candida as it dies off (candida absorbs mercury and releases it on die-off).
The creator of HMD is called Dr Georgiou and a good article from him regarding candida is here:

Hope this helps
