The document also reviews the pros and cons of the usage of DMSA, DMPS and TTFD. Mercola stipulates that DMPS is a much more effective chelator than DMSA.A web site that examines the pros and cons of DMSA and DMPS is shown below. This is mitigated to some extent by the protective characteristics of the chelating agent that are bound to the heavy metals in question. This is only really relevant for those at the end of their detoxification programmes, who need to take very high dosages of chelants to flush out the last of their heavy metals from their tissues.
All about BeetsBeet roots are an incredible food. Beet kvass can be safely consumed throughout pregnancy. Whether OSR#1 should be dosed around the clock like DMPS, for best effect and least problems, I am unsure. OSR#1 comes in either capsule or powder form. This vitamin acts as an antioxidant and prevents redox reactions that can potentially be harmful to the arteries and the lymphatic system from occurring. The danger of chelation is that if too much of the chelating agent is taken over a period of time, the liver and kidneys can easily become overburdened, and patient putting his body under unnecessary strain, depleting his energy, and in extreme cases, permanent liver or kidney damage can occur. One cannot make any assumptions about the performance or effectiveness of a course of chelation without actually testing and measuring it.
The majority of the EDTA ingested orally remains in the GI tract and passes through the small and large intestine and out through our stools. Calcium Disodium EDTA is the safer form of EDTA salt for use with chelation and is found in the vast majority of EDTA-based chelation supplements. And, of course, you must have proper ventilation and use non-toxic water (if you pour liquid on hot stones in your sauna) or the results could be tragic. I’ll leave it to others to discuss the pros and cons of using antiperspirants. Containing many liver-supporting properties, it is a perfect addition to any detoxification program.
