It is far, far better to use your own, internally gener-ated, “chelators” rather than chemically induced substitutes. Every cell in your body is capable of generating chelators that bind to heavy metals for elimination. Internally generated chelators have ab-solutely no side effects, and a healthy body can eliminate heavy metals at a rate that avoids the so-called, "healing crisis". In order to “self-detoxify”, there are two systems in your body that must be healthy and fully functioning: The good news is that there is a safe, effective, all natural process for the detoxification aspect of amalgam removal. And it works for everyone. The two essential components to preparing yourself for detoxification are: 1. Specific, targeted laboratory testing to eval-
uate and establish markers for gastrointes-
tinal and immunological status.
This allows
us to identify areas of weakness and preferred
treatments, and then serve as a way to meas-

Nutrition and supplements allow us to “fine
