How to choose oral chelating products

I have decided to take oral chelation to remove heavy metal toxins from my body. There are so many brands of oral chelating products on the market. What do you suggest?

First the source of heavy metals must be eliminated. For example, ff you take chelators in the presence of dental amalgam you only make the problem worse due to liberation of mercury from the surface of the amalgams. Once the source is removed, then one should be tested for residual levels of metals and then treated. Unless you know which metals you are treating it is not possible to choose the right chelator(s). The test is called a "challenge test." A chelator is administered followed by a urine collectona and analysis of the urine. This should be done with the aid of a doctor who understands these matters. Treatment should be followed by another challenge test to be certainthe job was completed.
