mercury chelation

I just started a chelation regimen involving 250 mg. of oral DMPS every two weeks for three months specifically for mercury toxicity. My fillings were removed over a year ago by a very expert dentist in this field but I moved and was not able to follow up with him at the time. My question concerns (a) your reaction to this apparently very cautious every two week approach and (b) appropriate supplements to take during this time to assist in the chelation process. You mention chlorella as did the doctor who put me on the DMPS. But I have also found recommendations of NAC, selenium and garlic, with the proviso that the NAC should not be used concurrently with bee pollen - do you have any recommendations relative to these other supplements?

There is no standard protocol for removing mercury. I would likely be more aggressive, but perhaps not if your mercury is very elevated. What ever dose I choose, I always give it Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have no standard dose, but adjust for each person based on the results of the DMPS Challenge Test. As to adjuvants, chlorella is the only one I use. Naturopaths, since they are not licensed to prescribe, typically recommend a plethora of neutraceuticals, but they are unnecessary - except for chlorella - if you are taking DMSA.
