EDTA vs. DMPS IV Chelation

It seems that EDTA IV Chelation is much more widely available than DMPS IV Chelation, yet I understand that it is your opinion that DMPS IV Chelation works better for removing mercury from the human tissues. Is it even worth it to go through EDTA, or would one end up having to turn to DMPS to get results and eliminate the debilitating pain and other symptoms of mercury poisoning? We're going to be sure all metal fillings are completely removed before starting therapy. Could an amalgam tattoo cause any problems during the chelation process?

DMPS is the preferred method of removing mercury in my practice. Oral DMSA also does the job. EDTA will get the job done, but more slowly, although it is excellent for removal of lead (which is commonly elevated). If a tatto contains mercury, it should be removed for the same reasons a mercury dental amalgam is removed.
