The word chelate means pincer like claw. The medical field uses this word to indicate the action of grabbing heavy metals and taking them away. The grabbing is electronic. Chelation agents have negative ions that attract the positive ions of heavy metals.
The FDA Approved Versions
Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is the pharmaceutical staple for chelating lead and iron. It has a level of efficacy with those metals, but according to Dr. Alan Greenburg, EDTA is harmful for those who have mercury amalgams. Then the mercury overwhelms the EDTA and creates an even more toxic brew. He considers EDTA`s tendency of eliminating through the kidneys problematic.
EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS are harsh Rx chelation agents. In addition to exposing these FDA approved chelation drug inadequacies and potential problems, Dr. Greenburg, Dr. Dietrich Klinhardt, and Dr. Isaac Eliaz all support natural, less harsh approaches to detoxing heavy metals. They endorse various natural chelation agents of their own that are gradual and effective at chelating mercury as well as all other heavy metals.
