> If it was the metal, wouldn't the chelation therapy rememdy your symptoms? A metal taste in your mouth is a pretty typical SE or w/d symptom of many ADs.
I am familiar with that AD or drug taste. Chelation taste is distinctly different. Very metallic.
Chelation therapy is not easy or straightforward or fast. Each round is estimated to remove only a small percentage of the body load.
Once the body is fairly clean, then begins the task of removing metals from the brain. The prescription drugs don't cross the blood brain barrier. Alpha Lipoic Acid or Cilantro are the only substances that do cross it and snag lead and mercury to mobilize them out. But of course, they can also bring metals in to the brain, if the body levels are high, and that is why the body has to be cleaned out first.
Difficult stuff. Takes time. Some people get healed, some people see respectable benefits, some people see minor benefits, and some people don't get any better. Some people who do it wrong get a lot worse. Depends on what damage was done I guess.
