Many detox protocols claim to remove metals, but most of what we have seen does not remove mercury safely. Some protocols don't remove it at all, or at least not from the brain where it causes most of the problems. Others do not prevent mercury from going back into the brain.
Any protocol that suggests randomly taking chelators causes metals to settle in the brain. It is called redistribution and makes people get sicker, sometimes permanently. Andy Cutler discussed this in his books, and he had seen cases of permanent regressions. We mention this in our books as well. One example of this is the use of high-dose IV chelation. It was so common the nickname "DMPS backfire" led to a website "DMPS backfire" cataloging the reports, but it can happen with any chelator used infrequently. You can read real people's experiences of similar problems with high dose or infrequent protocols on this site.
Other protocols don't use things that can bind metals. It takes a sulfur-thiol molecule to grab onto metals and escorts them out of the body. In addition to that, most protocols don't use anything that crosses the blood-brain barrier. If you don't get a chelator into the brain, the mercury won't come out of it. None of them are using half-life to maintain steady levels of chelators if they use chelators at all.
In addition to respecting the half-life of chelators to maintain a steady level, this protocol also uses support supplements to nourish the body, protect against oxidative stress and make detox more comfortable.
The point of this protocol is to detox without the risk of making everything worse.
