mercury removal

I have had all mercury fillings taken out and have done a DMPS challenge test and found my mercury level to be 50.86 (normal was below 4.72). The test also showed other metal were elevated also like arsenic which was 836.7 (normal was below 82.) and lead was 3.49 (below 1.49 was normal) and tin 10.0 (below 4). My copper was high also. I had blood tests done which were normal except she thought I could use some pregnenolone supplementation as that was low. The treatment that was recommended for me was EDTA (sodium?) instead of DMPS to get rid of those metals. My doctor said it was a new treatment that was done via an IV which only took 5 minutes rather than 3 hours. I have been following your web site for awhile and thought to get rid of the mercury I should use DMPS. I was wondering with those test results if you would use EDTA. The arsenic was very high which I don't understand. I am hypoglycemic so I mostly eat a very balanced diet with all vegtables, brown rice, fish (no tuna or swordfish) and meat, chicken ect. I'm very thin, 115 lbs. (5'4"). I am 48 years old, very active, play tennis 3 times per week and lift weights. I could have other problems like candida, and gut wall infection but I'm not sure. I will be in San Francisco the week of June 18 and would like to schedule an appointment with you if that's possible. My other problem that really worries me is my immune system. It seems to not let me take supplements, some medicines etc. I feel fine when I take them and then can't sleep. I don't take any vitamins and unless I can cure my immune system problems I don't know if any program will work for me. When I tell any doctor this, they think I'm crazy so I just don't even mention it anymore.

I use oral DMSA to remove lead, tin, and mercury. Arsenic and copper respond better to EDTA, but this could be given as suppository rather than as a push. Some docs are giving IV push calcium-EDTA which should remove lead fairly well. As to your fish diet, I suggest you stop all fish. The predatory fish are higher in mercury, but they do not have a corner on the market. You are spot on about your immune system and of course it is intimately tied to the health of the digestive system. To deal with that the metals have to be gone, so good thing you are already dealing with that. I will correspond with you by email about the appointment.

Do you consider the 5 minute calcium EDTA push to be as effective as the one that takes 3 hours to do? Can the 5 minute push be harmful? Does the suppository use calcium to eliminate heavy metals?

It depends on how much EDTA is used. The three hour drip contains about 3 grams. Ask your doc how much EDTA is in the push and compare. I am not sure how to answer the question about harm. I am not doing the EDTA pushes, so I haven't researched the side-effects. I expect you will be asked to sign an "informed consent" before receiving the push. There you would find possible side-effects. EDTA supps are magnesium-EDTA.
