Excellent article, Larry.
After hanging out for a couple years at chelation forums where most people have diagnosed elevated levels of mercury and/or lead, mostly mercury from amalgams, I found it interesting that the very supplements most of these patients find critical and helpful are the very same ones mentioned in the article. Such as CoQ10 being a top one, as well as selenium and zinc. Vit C and E are common too, but results and tolerance more inconsistent. Alpha Lipoic Acid, while mentioned in the article as an anti-oxidant, is actually the powerhorse supplement that mobilizes brain mercury (if taken every 3 hours around the clock in respect of its halflife).
And of course a top symptom of everyone, 100%, with some kind of toxicity, is...fatigue.
But, the same goes for Lyme disease. Or even just plain ole garden variety depression. So I think the causes are in the multitudes, but perhaps the final effects at the cellular level are the same.
Anyway, I found it interesting the supplements that showed promise, since I am very familiar with their use in other forums where fatigue is a top symptom.
