Metal Toxicity

I spoke with you before byphone on T3 and mercury toxicity.
I have since made it down to 82.5 micro grams of T3 from 360, had all my amalgams out, taken chealation 5 times and my temps are holding 98.4 - 99.2 but I still have alot of symtoms and need to get those metals out. My metal levels that I tested positive for are as follows:
Reference range up to My Level
1. Tin 9 120
2. Lead 5 23
3. Tungsten 0.7 2.4
4. Mercury 3 3.7
5. Nickel 10 10
6. Aluminum 25 15
7. Cadmium 2 1
8. Thallium 0.7 0.2
9. Arsenic 120 14

In what order would you be concerned and what can I do for teatment outside of chealation which is making holes in my wallet?

Looks like lead and tin are the big problems there. To be kinder to your wallet, insist on oral in place of intravenous chelation. It is just as effective. The best chelator of lead is IV EDTA, but if you are going oral, I suggest a combination of DMSA and EDTA. It is very important to take Chlorella while chelating. Also, it is very important to identify the source of these things and cut that off. The most common source of tin is food from cans. Lead comes from old paints and industrial environments in general. If you spend time in places like that, wear a smoke mask which you can purchase at any fire department equipment outlet. In general, stay away from metals and air in proximity to places where metals are used and away from food which has been in contact with metals. Be careful what you eat and what you put on your skin or inhale.

Even though tin is not considered to be a toxic metal and found in amalgams do you feel it is a problem at my level? Can things cooked or heated up in tin foil cause problems?

Tin is on the list of THMs. "Tin foil" is made of aluminum. Aluminum toxicity is implicated as apossible contributing factor in the development of Alzheimers. Cooking food in aluminum foil is a great way to get aluminum into your diet. (So is using underarm deodorant.)
