#477 is from one of the moderators of one of the yahoo chelation groups. He had high copper and was able to get it under control in a few months.
I really think you'd be wise to check before just assuming.
Btw. A. Cutler writes that copper and mercury produce very similar symptoms. Of course they are especially nasty when present together. Hg messes up the liver and you don't get rid of the copper as well. I think Hg also messes up some of the MT proteins that the body uses to detox other metals.
