IV or other injections are MUCH more lucrative for the doctor. Do you think your doctor is immune to being somewhat blinded by the potential financial gain? Remember medical professionals put mercury in teeth because it is easier to place and less expensive. They inject babies with mercury-containing preservatives in vaccines because it is less expensive than using single-vial doses.
Does it make sense to blast the body with high dose IV for a short period of time and then let the non excreted HMs have a chance to settle in a more vulnerable part of the body?
Does that sound safer than keeping the body levels of chelator rather stable for a long weekend or more with low levels of chelator. This increases the odds that chelator in the next dose will mop up the non excreted HMs from the previous dose. The last dose of chelator will be small and therefore a small amount of non excreted HMs will have a chance to settle in a more vulnerable part of the body. Obviously the use of antioxidants is important.
Actually the document on DMPS from Dimival is posted in the files here at Curezone. It has a paragraph on the Cutler protocol although they did a poor job explaining it.
Much of the DMPS is made in Eastern Europe so you'd expect it to be popular there.
I'm confident that many people who get DMPS IV for the preventative purpose of mopping up Hg after Amalgam removal do just fine. They are not sick with Hg poisoning. They probably have decent detox genes. They've been getting rid of most of it over the years.
It seems insane to me to inject large amounts of DMPS into a person with poor detox ability. Where do they expect it to go?
Yes, thankfully I've not tried IV! When I was new to the subject and looking for information, someone in my extended circle of friends warned me. He regretted the high dose of chelator that he took from his doctor. He got worse from it--nearly bed ridden with neurological, psychiatric, and other symptoms. He reported that he was back to work at his white collar job after roughly 5 yrs of Cutler protocol chelation. While he looked and sounded healthy to me, he said he still had some remaining issues. I suppose that is not uncommon for people in their 50's.
Think about what makes sense for *your* health versus what works best for the doctor--typically a for-profit service provider.
Some people who are not too sick and who don't have a nasty candida problem do fine on DMSA. I was one. A close friend is not too vulnerable to a candida problem and so she uses DMSA + ALA once per month or so. On the other weekends she uses DMPS + AlA.
I realize these discussions are important for those who are new to the subject! Do your homework! Are you one of the 10 or 15% of people who are very sensitive to kicking up heavy metals during the detox process? Will the high dose provoked urine test overwhelm your system like it apparently has for some people? There are some very unpleasant reports about those tests in the heavy metal groups.
Good luck in your search for good information on the subject.
