Ted's Remedy Feedback

Mercury Chelation:

I am confused as to how chelation of mercury toxicity should be carried out. Ted recommends EDTA, cilantro, and oil pulling. Andy Cutler's famous protocol says that chelation methods such as EDTA are harmful and perhaps dangerous. Can someone help clarify before I make a potentially hazardous mistake?

I personaly would go with what ever Ted says; If you take about 2 or 3 hours and read some of the threads of teaching Ted has in here you can learn a few things,,I am still learning, and I have been reading on this site about 12 hours each week, for 8 months. Merryanne

Because of the following wikipedia text I wouldnt want to use EDTA in the first place,,nor the second,,nor 3rd,,


Side effects and safety concerns

There is a low occurrence of side effects when chelation is used at the dose and infusion rates approved by the U.S. FDA as a treatment for heavy metal poisoning. A burning sensation at the site of delivery into the vein is common. Other side effects include fever, headache, nausea, stomach upset, vomiting, convulsions, bone marrow depression (dropping blood cell counts), a drop in blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmias, respiratory arrest, and hypocalcemia. Other concerns include kidney failure, which can require permanent life-limiting and expensive dialysis, or cause death.[19]

2007 research with lab rats indicates giving chelating agent DMSA to rats without high levels of lead may cause lasting cognitive damage. [33]

When EDTA is not administered by a health professional for the treatment of heavy metal poisoning more serious side effects can occur.[2]

Chelation therapy can be hazardous, even conducted with the FDA-approved chelation agents. In August 2005, botched chelation therapy conducted by an ACAM member killed a 5-year-old autistic boy,[16] a 3-year-old nonautistic girl died in February 2005, and a nonautistic adult died in August 2003. These deaths were due to cardiac arrest caused by hypocalcemia during chelation therapy.[34] Only the 3-year-old girl had been medically assessed and found to have an elevated blood lead level and resulting low iron levels and anemia, a proper medical cause for chelation therapy to be conducted.[35]

More than 30 deaths have been recorded in association with IV-administered disodium EDTA since the 1970s.

The EDTA I used is 1/10 of the dose what they use in alternative medicine. What happens if you put one drop of EDTA in a swimming pool? Would that kill you? It is very unlikely. The issue is one of concentration.

The other issue is the seriousness of the condition. If a person is dying from metastatic cancer, EDTA is required to get blood circulation to normal...

I joined an autistic forum where they used Andy Culter's method and none of the autistic are cured. Of course a few that did my protocol were mostly cured and many are now living normal lives. One of the problems of Andy Culter's method is it causes mercury deposition on the brain whenever you take alpha lipoic acid. This makes the mercury deposition permanent. This fact is known in biochemistry and may cause permanent mercury poisoning if mercury is indeed deposited. The other thing is the chemical he used for chelation has a known side effect. EDTA has the least. If you want someting even a lot less controversial, I would likely try a good humic acid powder. No not the kind you find in mud or wells but the kind that are extracted properly from a known humic acid peat sources, where it is referred to as sodium humate, or just humates. Humates are can also pull out mercury, lead and cadmium. The dose is simply, 1/8 teaspoon of humic acid in a cup of water. An autistic will have a very bad fecal odor and hence toxicity. With humic acid, the odor is reduced, and the toxicity of autotoxicity (from fermentation of the intestines) is also reduced.

One of the people who was in the forum asked all forum members how many were cured with Andy Cutler's method. Not one was cured or was helped in that forum. Since I have other people with serious illness and the ADHD, who were helped with my remedy, I see no need in pursuing that, because of lack of time and other serious diseasees I have to find remedies for, such as chikungunya, swine, antibiotic chlamydia, and the recent one...Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

Much information in this post is false. A reasonable person would know it is false. If you want accurate information I would suggest you seek it on the frequent dose chelation group of yahoo.com or the facebook 'acfanatics' group.
