Here is a list of the prerequisites for chelating...
1.BOWELS AND KIDNEYS:These are the main avenues of excretion for mercury. So the bowels and kidneys must be able to eliminate regularly and correctly.
2.LIVER FUNCTION: The liver is the main filtering system in the body. As mercury leaves the tissues and circulates through the blood and lymph system it will find its way to the liver to be sent out of the body.
3.ADRENAL AND THYROID FUNCTION: These glands are responsible for pumping mercury out of our tissues and sending it to the liver. Once in the liver they signal the liver to dump it out of the body.
I use 100 mg of DMSA every 3 days and no sulfur or mineral supplements or vitamin B12 on the days I take the chelators. Slowly but surely is the key...and definitely do it under the watchful eye of a trained and experienced professional.
Best luck Ariel and keep us posted.
