Note my new pen name, by the way, due to tech problem involved with CZ forums.
In hindsight it turns out that I had/have very high metal toxicity (high cadmium/arsenic/mercury/lead according to Doctor's Data hair analysis), and in 2003 had replacement of 17 mercury amalgams.
Also tried FCT & NMT but they were disillusioning, bitter experiences for me (among many more). Which just comes to show that no matter how "impressive" things may seem on the www, including M.D. credentials and "professional" websites, CAVEAT EMPTOR.
at this stage I'm considering IV chelation at a local M.D. after various other forms of oral chelation (DMSA/ALA/Oral-Chelato by VRP you name it...) failed to cause me to feel any better. Various brands of Bentonite clay baths, including LL's & Mountain Rose & Terramin also failed to elicit a therapeutic "pulling" sensation. Seven packs of detox patches also failed.
I also have a toxic liver, blocked gallbladder & parasites.
Above all, I came to realize that the worst of my conditions (abnormal bleeding & many other symptoms) had actually been triggered by prolonged viewing of computer monitors - both CRT & LCD - no difference. Sulphur (such as in garlic/onions) and citric/ascorbic acids also can trigger bleeding.
