Alpha-Lipoic acid - promising chelator

MTM Research 2022

Alpha-Lipoic Acid, short ALA, can penetrate all areas of the nervous system. There is ample evidence that toxic metals such as mercury affect nerve function. Thus, a 'detoxification' of nerve cells should have a positive effect on their function. 

We just finished our study on comparing urine metal concentration before and after ALA treatment, and the results are promising. Results are in the publishing stage.

In the USA, a clinical study, now entering its second phase, is intended to show whether ALA treatment has a positive effect on the progression of Multiple Sclerosis. 

EDTA Review published in Occupational Medicine & Health Affairs 2016

EDTA: Ethylene Diamine Tetra Acetic Acid - A Review by E. Blaurock-Busch, published in Occupational Medicine & Health Affairs 2016 4:4

Chelation therapists around the world incorporate EDTA treatments in their daily practice, often unaware of the chemical differences of the various chelating agents. Misunderstandings increase the risk of iatrogenic accidents. This information aims to prevent this.

Comparing DMSA, DMPS and EDTA

Original Research Paper publ Jan 2014, British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research:

Comparison of Chelating Agents DMPS, DMSA and EDTA for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Metal Exposure

The chelating agents most commonly used to treat chronic metal overexposures are DMSA, DMPS and EDTA. We evaluated and compared the effectiveness of each of those chelating agents and statistically determined what metals are best bound. Based on the metal binding capacity and practicality of use, we determined that intravenously applied DMPS is best used as a provocation or mobilization test.
