Re: Having doubts about chelation
I have been here for some time, reading and following discussions and comments.
Firstly I want to back ERM's post. This particular comment is where I am: """Honestly, if I can't find the right doctor who I am comfortable to work with, I will not embark on any chelation protocol by my own."""
I found an excellent doctor - with both personal chelation experience and good consultative contacts to tailor my chelation protocol. Without going into lots of detail there are a number of analytical processes wisely used both starting and during chelation.
In reading many posts here over some time two things stand out.
Although I read some discussion about initial analysis there is little discussion of its ongoing role in chelation. There is some mention of supports that is not really discussed or well developed.
To sum up my treatment without going into details.
There were three sets of blood tests 23 in total. On going monthly reviews principally following liver kidney and various micro-nutrients. IV DMPS 24 hr urine. Hair analysis.
Genetic typing/saliva analysis.
I am chelating with four different agents and use nine different nutritional supports. As well as those nutritional supports there are six dietry supplements to assist/ensure HM removal.
So far all well at four weeks continuous treatment. First set of blood tests are fine.
I have respect for all parties here and do not want an argument about this or that protocol.
In summary of both my reading and current program: People's responses to HM's and their treatment protocols are individual. There is the information about to sort out individual protocols. Finding a well informed doctor could be the answer. That appears to have be the case for me.
