Heavy Metal Detox Answers
Although only tested for aluminum, lead and mercury, the heavy metal detox formula will remove all heavy metals to a similar degree.
Like any chelation formula, it will chelate out a small amount of minerals, which is why Jon Barron recommends a maximum program of only 6 weeks, twice a year. Keep in mind, toxic metal levels are much less than major mineral levels in the body. By the time you remove 90% of mercury in your body, you lose only a fraction of a percent of major minerals, and they are easily replaced with supplements such as Baseline Nutritionals ®' Catalyst Trace Altered Minerals.
Pulling out amalgam fillings before the detox is not necessary. Simply repeat the detox slightly more often because you have a guaranteed source of mercury still in your mouth.
4. Could some of the symptoms of heavy metals (grinding teeth at night) appear again while on the detox?
Yes, there can be a mild exacerbation of symptoms as the mercury is being released from the body tissue by the cilantro and is in the process of being bound to the chlorella and passed out of the body. That should lessen as you continue the detox and the amount of mercury being chelated diminishes.
A heavy metal chelator cannot pull out mercury pressed into a filling. All it does is break the electrical bond that ties the metals to body tissue (freeing the metals up), then binds to those freed metals and flushes them out in the urine. It has no impact on the mercury in fillings or on surgically implanted metal sutures, plates or pins.
6. What is the difference between the 2 week and the 6 week heavy metal cleanse? And what is suggested for Phase 1 of the full body detox?
After an initial cleanse of 42-days, a two week cleanse every 3-4 months should be enough to keep you relatively metal free – unless you eat a lot of high-mercury fish, or have more than a few amalgam fillings, in which case every 2 months is advisable. Incidentally, you do not want to use a chelation formula every day. Your body actually needs small amounts of some heavy metals.
