Chelation therapy is a treatment used in alternative medicine. It's based on the process of chelation, in which chemicals are used to remove heavy metals and other substances from the body. Although chelation was originally used to treat conditions like lead poisoning, chelation therapy is now claimed to protect against heart disease and other major health problems. In chelation therapy, a chemical substance is introduced into the body through an intravenous IV drip. Once it enters the bloodstream, the chemical substance binds to certain molecules such as metals or minerals and then removes those molecules from the body.
I have a level of mercury at 19, when anything over 3 is considered toxic - and am currently on Porphyra-Zyme 6 pills every night before bed. It all depends upon how you do the detoxing. If you prepare your body for the proper detoxing, it will take far less time.
Retired biological dentist Dr. Jerry Mittleman also posts on this group. Be sure to use the hyphens. A lively group of people who can share with you how they are chelating mercury and other heavy metals. Some are quite knowledgeable and share what has worked for them.
