16. Chelating

Controlling toxins that are put on and around the body and toxins in the environment – Post 16

On the day of the severe chronic dental ingestion diagnosis sped up tenfold by the effects of Oral-Electro galvanism, a chelation programme was worked out to reduce the toxins entering the body.

Chelation is a method of removing certain heavy metals, from the bloodstream used especially in treating lead or mercury poisoning. In this patient’s case, the specialised blood tests indicated severe levels of ingested dental mercury, nickel and palladium toxicity, exposed over a seven year period prior to diagnosis.

There are a number of immediate actions needed and some of these are already discussed in posts 13-15.

One needs to –

  • 1 – to reduce the toxins being consumed.
  • 2 – to reduce the toxins put on the body and immediately around the body.
  • 3 – to reduce environmental toxins

This page covers points 2 and 3. Other posts cover the much wider topic of consumption, posts 14, 15 and 17.

2. Controlling things that are put on and around the body

Whilst a patient changes their diet to aid recovery, they must also consider other areas of toxins in their lifestyle that they use, often unknowingly.

Here is a list of some of the changes made by the patient to help speed up chelation.

  • Lotions, make-up, hair accessories, jewellery and watches being worn on the body all removed.
  • Hair shampoo and conditioner were replaced with organic brands. moderately priced DGJ Organic brand was used. Fortunately, there is growing popularity of organic brands available at good retailers including make-up.
  • Body lotions and deodorants, hair dyes, all make-up and nail varnishes were no longer used.
  • Neal’s Yard organic hand and foot creams were introduced after a year of chelation.
  • Metal framed glasses were swapped for plastic-framed glasses.
  • Underwear was replaced where metal-free trimmings were used.
  • Wearing natural organic fabric clothing and gloves.
  • Writing with metal-free pens/pencils.

Into the fifth year of chelation the patient continues with this programme with the exception of wearing some non-organic clothing and occasional organic branded make-up, worn only on special occasions.


Large sacks of Westlab™ Epsom salts were purchased, initially used in a deep bath, every day, for a couple of weeks and then reduced to every other day, during the first few months of chelation. This allowed the high-value Magnesium nutrients to soak through the skin for at least half an hour. Noticeably, this “quick-fix” method of getting magnesium into all the body particularly helped mobility, keeping magnesium levels higher in the body, easily depleted by manganese which works in tandem with the mercury toxicity.

Large sacks were reduced to smaller packets to keep the salts fresh once opened and as the need to soak less frequently in the salted bath water.

Into the fifth year of chelation, this method of boosting magnesium and wellbeing has continued, decreased to 1 x 30 minute Epsom salts infused bath a week, (or 2 baths a week when stiffness noticeably increases of limbs generally whilst chlorella is being consumed, being part of the chelation ingestion programme).


It has been recognised for many years that the use of infra-red saunas may be beneficial to reduce toxins from the body.

A facial sauna was used at home in the early stages of detoxification which was considered to help remove toxins sited just below the surface of the skin, around the mouth, and jaw areas, penetrating to just a depth of 0.5cm.

Dental ingested mercury toxicity is known for penetrating deep into the areas of the mouth, throat, gums and jaws and moving onto other parts of the body by way of ingesting the vapour.

Full body saunas were used, available at local health clubs, for some time, helping to relieve the agonising pains experienced during the first 2 years during detoxification.

It became noticeable after this period of time, they were not as beneficial. It’s believed at this point in the chelation programme that the easiest toxins to remove in organs and “surface” toxins resting in more accessible skin areas, particularly around the oral cavity, had mostly been removed from the body, but the harder task of removing mercury toxins from the bones remained and would take a much longer time, if ever, to completely remove. Saunas became have become less beneficial in the excretion of toxins at this point.

Covid-19 and the use of sanitisers

Covid-19 posed some new risks being severely mercury, nickel and palladium poisoned and in chelation. One of biggest problems was the constant need to keep hands clean and the use of sanitisers that contain alcohol-based chemicals.

It was impossible to use these more than once a day without visual severe rashes and itching occurring, which could be diagnosed as eczema. It is the mixing of numerous chemicals particularly with mercury resting heavily in bones and (possibly lesser so after four years chelation) organs that cause these problems.

Plastic gloves are worn to help minimise the risk that Covid-19 virus spreads through touch.

3. Chelating by environment 

The environment you live and work in around you is as important as the food you consume and the reduction of lotions on the body to recover from chronic dental ingestion toxic poisoning. It’s surprising when you start looking at your environment, how toxic it may be. 

Whilst a patient battles with a considerably changed diet and lifestyle, a toxic patient must also consider the problems of ingesting toxic vapour around their immediate surroundings and try and minimise.

One of the first changes were to look at every day cleaning products used in the home which were loaded with nasty toxins.

1. Cleaning products were changed to organic brands especially washing-up liquids and laundry cleaning. Products used are from the Ecover brand.

2. Cleaning products being used in the washing machine and particularly softeners actually contained mercury in their production of the solution. Changing products helped to lessen the risk of breathing in life-threatening vapours where bed clothes, sheets and duvets may have been washed in these toxic solutions, helping to spot further ingestion of toxins and speed up recovery.

3. Covid-19 virus declared as a global pandemic bought about world populations wearing masks which helps not just to ensure the virus is not breathed in but wearing masks also helps to reduce breathing in other noxious toxins in our environment.

For example, there’s plenty of ubiquitous substances every day hiding in vehicle exhausts. The total vehicle official figure, (2020), now stands at 40.4m cars, vans, trucks and buses, registered for road use, in the UK, including 18,250 ambulances. Masks can help towards the prevention of toxicity caused by ingestion of daily traffic when travelling.

The Sun newspaper reported on children’s toys and other household items manufactured with a range of dangerous toxins. This starts to enlighten the public as to how many things in our environment are made from some of the most dangerous materials in the world known to man.

Daily Mail reports that a quarter of all NHS hospitals in England and Wales, UK,  are now recording dangerous levels of toxicity in their environments. 

Moving location, your home, and work environment may not be an option. Moving from a city to a more rural setting with minimal toxins visually evident in the environment could help speed up recovery, but not, if situated next to a farm using pesticides, for example.

Trying to reduce the many toxins of manufactured products around you will help general recovery.

More immediately, making time to check your home contents, and how they are furnished is an option along with the quality of the air you breathe.

Posts are in numbered order for completeness. This is post 16. The chelation posts are posts 13 – 19. The next post 17 describes how further changes have to be made to food consumption and beverages.
