On most digital scales there is a function called ‘tare’. What exactly is this?
You may be surprised to learn it is a very handy feature. It allows you to tell the scale to ignore the weight of the container you are using to weigh something.
For example. If you wanted to weight some sugar you could just pour it on the scale. It would work but it would make a mess. This is where the tare feature is used.
Say you wanted to weigh some sugar in a small glass. When you put the glass on the scale it will show the weight of the glass. Before you put any sugar in the glass simply push the tare button and the scale will go to 0 (zero). The scale will now ignore the weight of the glass.
Now when you add some sugar you will only see the weight of the sugar. Tare is a great feature.
This short video demonstrates the tare function of a digital scale.
What is DMPS? DMPS chelation treatment is one chelation method employed to treat heavy metal poisoning.
The chemical name for DMPS is Dimercapto-propane sulfonate. A long chemical name only of interest to chemists. It is included here for reference. DMPS chelation can eliminate heavy metals such as mercury and lead from the body. It can also eliminate 18 other heavy metals.
Mercury and lead are the most familiar heavy metals that make people sick. But are they the most common? The answer is, ‘it depends’
Someone who works in the electronics assembly industry may have a high level of antimony or cadmium in their body. A dental assistant may have high levels of mercury. Someone who has had multiple MRI’s will have gadolinium (its used in the contrast dye used during MRI)
The old silver filling contain a lot of mercury. These filling are often called amalgam fillings. The new white filling are much safer.
2 Ways Metals Got In Your Body
Most people got their lead and mercury passed from mother to baby. It takes 3 generations to break this cycle. Please note that pregnant women should not do chelation.
Environmental exposure is the second way many people become toxic.
Exposure to things such as:
lead pipes in old houses
candy from Mexico
painted toys from Mexico
working in some factories
When possible it is a good idea to remove environmental sources of toxins. Your detoxing efforts will be harder if you are always exposed to the toxins around you.
You can replace lead pipes. Quit smoking. Buy products made in the US. Work in safer places. There are many things you can do.
How To I Find Out What Is In Me?
How do you know what heavy metals are in your body? You do a test. The best test is the 6 Hour Urine Challenge Test. Some people ask about hair tests. Hair tests only show recent acute exposures and thus are a poor indicator of your ‘body burden.’ Body burden is simply the total of all the metals in your cells, bones, and brain.
Every one is different. Which is why you need to know what you are chelating before you actitively start a chelation regimen. Everyone considering chelation should consult with a seasoned physician.
A doctor who is familiar with both chelation therapy and autism treatment. An autism treatment doctor is needed only if autism applies to your situation. Chelation is a common treatment for autism.
Autism is mention as heavy metals are though to cause autism. The metals are passed from mother to baby, or via vaccinations. Vaccinations are implicated and correlated with autism spectrum disorder. This is a controversial subject. Much anecdotal (word of mouth) evidence exists. Just ask any parent of an autistic child their opinion versus asking ‘big pharma’.
The companies making the vaccinations will never admit this. It would open the door for massive legal action. To vaccinate or not is an individual decision. Be informed and do your research. The web is full of personal accounts written by caring parents. You can learn a lot by reading about other peoples experiences.
Vaccinations and Schools
Some states require children to be vaccinated to attend school. This is not always the case. Sometimes it is strongly encourged and not a legal requirement. Ask your childs school for the written proof of what is required. Many school officials do not actually know. Most just assume it is a legal requirement. This is not always the case.
Chelation Deliver Methods
Chelation products can be given several different ways:
oral with a pill or liquid
with a needle or IV
a patch called ‘transdermal’
Oral Chelation with Pills
This is by far the most common. It is very easy for most to swallow a pill. A pill can be disolved and mixed with water. This way it can be given to someone with difficulty swallowing.
Oral delivery is very convenient. You can take it at home or work. You can take it while traveling. It is very easy to carry with you.
Chelation With a Needle
This is not an injection. It is a bottle of liquid that slowly drips the chelation solution into your arm. You have to go to a doctors office for this. It takes a lot of time and money.
There are risks any time a needle is stuck in your arm. Infection, bruising, blood clots are just a few risks. If the dosage is wrong you will get sick very fast. Problems with IV administration usually require an emergency trip via ambulance to the hospital emergency room.
Using a Patch
Most people are familiar with patches to help quit smoking. Patches slowly release the medicine over the course of 12 hours or so. This is a very safe and easy method. The problem is the patch is very difficult to find for chelation. Because patches are so hard to find they are almost never used. Chelation patches require a prescription. This makes patches more expensive and more effort to get.
Rectal chelation is another delivery method. For rectal administration you can not use DMPS, you must use a suppository such as can be done with DMSA. This delivery method is used for those unable to swallow due to illness or injury.
Rectal administration is often used for very small children or infants.
After reviews of the various chelation methods most people reject DMPS chelation. Instead, they choose DMSA chelation using DMSA.
There are many ways to use DMSA. DMSA combined ALA is popular. This is taking alapha lipoic acid at the same time you take DMSA. This is is not done for the frist round of chelation therapy.
ALA allows DMSA to cross the blood brain barrier. This enables DMSA to remove mercury from your brain. DMPS does not cross the blood brain barrier.
Mercury in the brain is thought to be the cause of most symptoms. This alone makes DMSA a much better chelator than DMPS.
When you first start detoxing do not be too aggressive. If you chelate from the body and brain at the start you may become sick. It took years to become toxic. It is a slow and gradual process to safely detox. Putting a sudden load of heavy metals into circulation in your body is a bad idea. Slow and sure wins the race.
The best treatment schedule is the ‘Cutler process’ which is discussed later on. Chelation therapy with 2,3-dimercaptopropane-1-sulfonate (DMPS) has-been used-to handle extreme and long-term heavy metal accumulation. However DMPS chelation has many drawbacks. The foremost of which is it is done intraveniously. It is done with a needle directly into the blood stream. This requires a licensed and experienced doctor to administer it.
All the standard risks associated with IV administations apply such as risk of infection, blood clotting and other undesirable effects. Also it will be expensive and require you to travel to get the treatments. DMSA. The better alternative for chelation therapy is a pill. You can you can take a pill your own home or at work much like you would take a vitamin.
By far the most common and easiest method is using a pill.
DMPS Chelation Therapy for Autistic Children
Chelation therapy side effects children and chelation therapy for autistic children is discussed heavily on various forums. DMPS chelation on autistic children has been shown to increase their level of function in only a few days. Read what autism is. DMSA chelation (versus DMPS) is similarly effective for autism but is much safer, easier to adminster (particularly for children) and is much less expensive.
DMPS is ofter used as the starter medication in chelation treatment. DMPS is a ‘force’ type of chelation therapy. It must be used under the direction of the physician. This doctor must be registered to work with DMPS by the government. There are other chelation products that are as effective and safer than DMPS. DMSA pills do not require a doctor. Consulting with a doctor is always a good idea. Just make sure it is a doctor who knows all about chelation treatments.
Children present a particular concern when it comes to dosage. Proper chelation protocol is a weight based protocol. The less a person weights the less of the chelator they need. This means a very small childs dose must be very accurately measured. Errors in measurement can lead to bad side effects. DMSA has a large therapeutic window. This means the safe range is much larger. This makes dosage errors with DMSA unlikely.
Below is a screen shot of part of a report that you get if you do the DMSA Urine Challenge. This is a test that takes 6 hours and is done in the privacy of your own home. Doctors Data is a large and well respected lab that does the analysis and provides the report. You get the full repost about 5 days after you submit your urine sample. The urine collection kit comes with every thing you need including DMSA.
Note that you can not buy the test directly from doctors data. Only a licensed doctor can buy their tests. One DMSA reseller is licensed to sell the urine test. They are dmsachelation.com
Supporters for DMPS state that “DMPS effortlessly eliminates mercury much better than other chelating agents do”. Lets discuss these claims a bit. ‘Effortlessly’ is highly questionable as there is considerable, cost, risk. and time involved. This is hardly ‘effortless’. Chelation side effects and risks exist for all forms of chelation, including DMPS. “Eliminates mercury much better?’ This is simply not true as other chelators are at least as effective. Many study result can be easily found to demonstrate this.
There are various heavy metal chelation remedies on the market, including DMSA, DMSA and ALA, DMPS, and EDTA. DMSA chelation. An oral form of chelation treatment is the most mild type of chelation and is very effective. There have been some instances where DMPS chelation was not beneficial. DMPS can be very harmful. This can happen with DMPS even if it is administered correctly by a trained professional.
EDTA is generally chelation therapy for heart disease only, and as such, is beyond the scope of this article.
There are a few oral DMPS products on the market. The vast majority of chelation therapy with DMPS is done intraveniously (IV needle) in a doctors office.
It should be noted that the FDA has NOT approved DMPS. DMSA however was initially approved specifically for the treatment of heavy metal poisoning in children. This alone suggest that DMSA is particularly safe.
The dangers of chelation therapy are relatively few. The most obvious danger is the use of an IV to administer the DMPS medication. The second chelation danger is wrong dosage. Too much of a chelation product can cause unwanted side effects. The side effects are not life threatening. They are howver very unpleasant. Chelation side effects usually go away when you stop taking the product.
5 DMPS Chelation Side Effects
DMPS chelation side effects may include but are not limited to:
lack of co-ordination
“brain fog” ie poor memory and unable to understand things
Note that these are also symptoms of mercury poisoning. This is precisely one issue with DMPS. It releases mercury into circulation in your body. Your body can not adequately bond to it for excretion. The mercury is now out of your cells and freely floating around your body. This can make you sicker. Sicker than you were before chelation.
This can also happen with other forms of chelation. However, it is more likely to happen with DMPS.
DMSA chelation side effects are mostly limited to minor skin irritations which go away when the chelation cycle is over. A common DMSA chelation cycle, using the Cutler Protocol, is 3 days long. Very few people get this skin irritation.
Because DMSA bonds so strongly to heavy metals the above mentioned DMPS side effects never happen when using DMSA.
How to Use DMSA
DMSA is a weight based protocol. A patient should never exceed 2 grams of DMSA per day. Knowing this arms you with the confidence that you can not take too much.
Simply review your recommended daily dosage. If it adds up to more then 2 grams you know the protocol is wrong. The protocol needs to be recalculated.
The generally accepted safe dosage is 20 mg DMSA per kg of body weight. One kg or kilogram is equal to 2.2 pounds.
The place you buy your DMSA from should provide a personalized protocol for free. If they do not, look for another seller.
Be sure to do your homework when it comes to chelation. You may find the DMPS chelation is not the best choice for you.
The first question on most people minds when doing anything is often ‘How much will this cost?” Surprisingly, chelation therapy cost is quite low, less than a dollar a day for most people.
If you are chelating using natural methods the chelation therapy cost is virtually zero as you are already eating all the super healthy detoxing foods. However, if you are using a supplement like most people are your costs will be much more tangible.
For instance, most people serious about chelating heavy metals use a supplement called DMSA. How much DMSA you take is based on your body weight. Obviously this cost will vary slightly for each person using DMSA. If you have high levels of heavy metals in your system just eating well might not be good enough. You might need to consider a chelation supplement.
Using DMSA to Chelate
As mentioned, most people who are serious about chelation use DMSA. This is sometimes called ‘succinic acid’ or ‘captomer’. It is sold under the brand name ‘Chemet.’ The process is similar to edta chelation. An external substance, DMSA in this case, is used to ‘provoke’ the toxic substances. This means to pull them from your cells and bones.
DMSA has been around for many years and is considered very safe when used as directed. As long as you never use more than 2 grams a day (regardless of your body weight) you will not have any issues. Should you happen to take more than recommended simply take a day or 2 off then restart your chelation cycle.
Chelation therapy side effects are rare. Too much of a chelation product may cause side effects such as minor body rashes. These rashes go away in a few days if you stop the chelation cycle.
How To Chelate With DMSA
This is a weight based protocol. Use 20 mg per kg of body weight. Use for 3 days then take 11 days off (to allow your body to recover). For the first 6 months ONLY take DMSA. After 6 months you might want to add alpha lipoic acid (ALA) to your schedule. ALA allows DMSA to cross the blood brain barrier thereby chelating (removing) heavy metals from your brain. The most serious metals in your brain are lead and mercury.
Most people get mercury in form of mercury vapors from their silver amalgam dental fillings. Ther is a lot of controversy on the web about ‘silver’ dental fillings. Know this though, having an inert filling like porcelain must be healthier than a known toxic heavy metal. Why not err on the side of caution and safety.
Real World Chelation Therapy Cost
Lets break down the numbers. The protocol is weight based, specifically 20 mg of DMSA per kg of body. Lets change this to pounds and use some examples
A 140 pound woman would use 13 capsules of DMSA per day.
A 180 pound man would use 17 capsules of DMSA per day.
A bottle of 220 capsules of DMSA costs $170. This works out to $0.77 cents per capsule. In the above example the woman would spend $10 per day and the man would spend $13 per day. While this may sound expensive its not as you only use DMSA for 6 days per month as you take 11 days OFF DMSA for every 3 days that you use it. So for the woman the chelation therapy cost is a total of $60 per month.
Not really that bad to totally improve your health. This is hardcore, serious chelation, not some fad diet or gimmicky supplement. Often people ask what is oral chelation vs intravenous chelation? Basically IV means a needle and a doctor, oral chelation means a pill you take yourself. IV is better but much more expensive and has some dangers as it is a medical procedure.
Where To Buy DMSA for a Low Chelation Therapy Cost
Chelation therapy clinics sell these products. You might pay more than online though.
UPDATE: It used to be quite easy to buy DMSA online at any health supplement site. However, late 2014 in the USA the government stopped all sales of DMSA online for USA websites and store locations. Now, there is only one site selling DMSA online. That site is dmsachelation.com. This site has been around for close to 8 years and has a good reputation. They ship to the US.
As with most things, the price of DMSA goes down if you buy the bigger bottle. Below is the largest bottle you can buy, it is $170 dollars, there is no tax on this item. The chelation therapy cost is lower if you buy the largest bottle possible.
Most people get fast results when chelating with DMSA, the therapy cost of the supplement is easy to find. A typical ’round’ of chelation takes about 3 months.
The health benefits will be directly proportional to how ‘sick’ you were to begin with. The first thing most people notice is a big improvement in their mood and energy level.
Generally speaking, they just feel better. This is because the toxic heavy metals like lead and mercury greatly interfere with all your bodies natural systems. When these metals are removed or chelated your body begins to heal itself naturally.
Many people mention that their vision becomes sharper. Their minds are quicker. They no longer search for words when talking. Better sleeping and increase energy levels are quite common also.
The result? Greatly improved feelings of well-being. The cost of chelation therapy is well worth it! Finally the question “How much does chelation therapy cost?” has been answered here.

EDTA Chelation Therapy (EDTA stands for ‘EthyleneDiamineTetraAcetic Acid’). This form of therapy has been around for a long time. In the early 1930’s German scientists formulated EDTA for use in chelation treatment. They used it to remove toxic heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and others. Oral chelation for clogged arteries is mostly what EDTA is used for now a days.
This was the first use for EDTA chelation therapy. It was not until 1948 that the United States first started using EDTA to treat workers exposed to lead. Soldiers were exposed to vast amounts of lead when they repainted war ship. Many of them got very sick. It turned out that the lead in the paint was making them sick.
It has since been used to treat a wide range of conditions. It has been touted as being able to relieve many of the problems associated with cardiovascular disease. As time progressed EDTA became used more for heart problems. It may be the best chelaton supplement for heart issues.
EDTA is thought to be able remove the effects of heart attacks. It can also get rid of angina pectoris, better known as chest pains. Both men and women are canditates for this type of treatment.
Being a weak amino acid, the exact mechanism by which EDTA chelation therapy works is not fully understood. The ability for it to remove lead is well documented. Note it does not remove mercury. Only DMSA and DMPS can do this. The molecule is relatively complicated. It is not something you could make at home.
EDTA is also beneficial to those suffering from atherosclerosis (plaque buildups on arterial walls). Doctors administering IV EDTA observed that blood flow increased. This decreased the symptoms of atherosclerosis. For some heart patients this is a very good option. Avoiding surgery for heart problems is usually desirable. Doing a few chelation cycles can be a better healing method for some.
Patients with very advanced heart blockages will probably not benefit much from EDTA. They are usually given a surgical bypass. Bypass operations are now very common. Usually a vein is taken from the patients leg and attached to the heart. Recovery from such a surgical procedure is fairly fast.
4 Types of EDTA
IV with a needle is the most effective. You can also get EDTA in pills that you swallow. The final option is EDTA supplements in suppository form. These or of questionable use. There have been no good studies done on EDTA supporsitories. Also this method of use is uncomfortable for most people. Who does chelation therapy? Usually a doctor. If you really need EDTA chelation talk to your doctor. Better yet, talk to a doctor who specializes in chelation therapies. EDTA liquid supplements are also on the market. They are similar to pills. You simply swallow the liquid.
Typical Chelation Session
IV EDTA chelation therapy sessions typically last from 3 to 4 hours. Patients require 20-50 sessions. This is such a wide range as it depends on the persons physical condition and the seriousness of their atherosclerosos.
Dangers of Chelation Therapy
Are there any side effects of EDTA? Sure. Make sure you discuss any possible dangers with your doctor. If you are doing IV there may be issues for the very old and very young. As EDTA is mostly used for heart issues the young will probably not use EDTA. The biggest danger is allergies. Some may be allergic to EDTA. Too high of a dosage can also cause unwanted side effects. Oral edta side effects are similar to angioprim side effects. The 2 main effects being upset stomach and diarrhea. Hardly life threatening but not pleasant either.
Chelation Therapy Cost
The total cost for IV EDTA chelation ranges from $2000-$4000. A licensed doctor must administer the treatment. Oral EDTA chelation is an alternative to the IV treatment. The oral EDTA therapy does take longer as only about 5% – 10% of the EDTA is absorbed when taken orally. When taken via IV adsorptionis close to 100%.
There are several alternatives. If the patient wants to detox heavy metals DMSA is the best. DMSA is taken as a pill. It can be used at home or work. The cost of DMSA is much less than EDTA.
The way to use DMSA Synergy is a simple 3 day “on” DMSA and 11 days “off” DMSA protocol. And is very successful at removing heavy metal toxins. It should be mentioned that if cardiovascular health is the goal EDTA chelation therapy is the best therapy.
A lot of us understand that the phrase mad hatter’s disease is another label for poisoning, and we’ve wondered perhaps poisoning was suffered from by the Hatter. Mad hatter ‘s disease is just a colloquial English term for mercury poisoning. Carroll ‘s iconic Mad Hatter identity inside the book was inspired from the expression angry being a hatter nevertheless the Mad Hatter did not have any outward indications of the Mercurial infection. I’m mad about hats.
Mad hatter’s disease, also known as Mad Hatter syndrome hatters disease, is the additionally applied term for serious mercury accumulation. Being confronted with the steam induced biological dilemmas insurance and many health that are associated with the Mad Hatter’s disease.
The mad hatter was Carroll’s interpretation of occupational illness from mercury accumulation in Alice’s Journeys in Wonderland and her experience with mad hatter disease.
The Hatter at the initial Crazy Tea Party had Crazy Hatters’ Disease—the neurological illness which affected 19thcentury hatters due to the mercury used in hats’ produce.
He just described him as “the Hatter.” It’s suspected that everybody imagined the Hatter mad by the proven fact and also his activities that he inside the never ended Mad Tea-Party, which the name one would be made by itself consider everyone participating is crazy.
Mad Hatter’s Infection explains the outward symptoms an occupational threat of the who once labored within the hat making market. Their Mad Hatter may consequently be considered a caricature of Carter, a real person of his associate, while his crazy as a hatter could have been a twist about the pre existing declaring, upset being a Goal hare.
Mad Hatter Disease – Is Very Serious
Mad hatter syndrome medical description is here. As you can see the symptoms and characteristics are quite serious.
One of the best drawings of the problems of heavy metal toxicity will be the origin of the expression “crazy as a hatter.” Of course, most people quickly think about the Mad Hatter figure from Lewis Carroll’s famous story, but the idea of the mad hatter originated from a real event in 19th century America. After all, the entire world is a lovely, but mad place – we certainly do not require anymore mad hatters .
Ok I am really genuinely truly surprised since I just learned that, as the expressing Angry like a Hatter” might have been popularized by Alice in Wonderland, it basically comes from an incredibly actual and very debilitating disease termed “Mad Hatter’s Syndrome” or “Mad Hatter Disease” This infection resulted from accumulation caused by chronic occupational experience of mercury, which was often-used inside the making of hats in 19th century England. The very first outline of the Mad Hatteris disease’s observable symptoms may have appeared Spain in 1829, in Saint Petersburg. Barak Attention revisited, Dental Amalgam induced types Health problems associated with, mercury poisoning’s neuropsychiatric sequelae.
Notice, in addition, that angry will be utilized in both these cases inside the impression to be upset in the place of ridiculous, consequently these cases better fit the sense of words like upset as a moist hen, angry as a hornet, crazy as being a cut lizard, angry like a beef guitar, and other great similes, which the very first two are American and the last two from Australia or New Zealand.
This, and slurred speech became known as the Hatter’s Disease.” This condition is thought to have inspired Lewis Carroll to add the Hatter identity in his function Alice in Wonderland. There clearly was no form of oral chelation during the time of the Hatters so mad hatter disease was something to be feared.
But mad hatter problem stays being an outline of the symptoms of poisoning. Possibly tv has enhanced the Mad Hatters Infection microbial spore. Mad Hatter’s illness became wellknown in Britain in the mid 1800s, when cap-designers were to inhaling the vapors in the mercury subject -centered stiffening substance they applied to felt to produce top hats.
Great protocol using DMSA Synergy is simple and will help with mad hatter disease. Just follow the 3 days “on” DMSA and 11 days “off” DMSA. This simple protocol works for over 95% of the people who try it, particularly if they have full blown mad hatters disease. If you need something more customized the folks at dmsachelation.com will give you a free protocol based on your weight and health problems. A proper and serious chelation regimen should be started immediately if you even suspect you or a loved one has mad hatter’s disease.
As mentioned in other posts, before you start a chelation schedule you really need to know that you are getting rid of. More specifically, you need to find out exactly what is in your body. For just about everyone it will be one of two things (or both):
Toxic Heavy Metals
How to test for and get rid of yeast will be covered in a separate article. For now, lets talk about toxic heavy metals.
The best oral chelation therapy test is the 6 Hour Urine Challenge. This test requires a licensed doctors signature however this oral chelation therapy test comes with a signed form so there is nothing else you need and not additional expense. Just buy it, to the test and use postage paid courier bag to send it to the lab. About 2 weeks later you will get the results via email.
Here is a picture of the contents of the kit:
There are a variety of heavy metals that may be in your body. This oral chelation therapy test kit test for 21 toxic heavy metals. Learning about how each one may have gotten into your body is not important until you know which ones are actually in your body. Order this kit, do the test and find out what is poisoning you. THEN you can start your chelation schedule and get rid of those heavy metals and start healing.
The oral chelation protocol using DMSA Synergy is a simple 3 day “on” DMSA and 11 days “off” DMSA protocol to remove toxins once you know you have them.
Lead poisoning treatment is being sought out more and more as people understanding of it grows. There are many sources of lead poisoning, they are all environmental.
Lead sources include leaded gasoline, leaded paint, old lead plumbing and candy from mexico.
Lead poisoning symptoms include:
Unexplained changes in mood or personality
Changes in sleep patterns
Inability to concentrate
Undergoing proper treatment for lead poisoning will generally get rid of all these symptoms. This form of poisoning is particularly hard to diagnose because the symptoms are common with many other ailments. A skilled doctor will recognize all the symptoms occuring at once and will be able to recommend the proper lead poisoning treatment. Im most cases the only treatment course of action to follow is chelation. Specifically, taking a compound that will bind to the lead and then be excreted from the body.
One such compound for lead poisoning treatment is DMSA. This product is very adept at getting lead out of the human body. It is safe and easy to buy without a prescription although doctors do ofter prescribe it. ETDA is another chelation compound often used for treating lead poisoning. It is available in either IV or oral form. It is generally much more expensive than DMSA. Both work well and the individual looking for the best treatment will have to decide which one is best for them.
The oral chelation protocol using DMSA Synergy is a simple 3 day “on” DMSA and 11 days “off” DMSA protocol.
Other lead poisoning treatments are available such as detox foot bath and herbal cures. Most of these based all their ‘proof’ on anecdotal evidence, and, as such, should be avoided. When seeking real an proven remedy for lead poisoning, chelation with DMSA is the best choice. Seeking professional advice for lead poisoning treatment is also recommended.
