\\\ Chelation

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 chronic ingested elemental/inorganic dental mercury, nickel and palladium toxicity, exposed over a seven year period prior to diagnosis.

As the diagnosis was chronic, particularly where mercury toxins had a long time to rest deep in the bones, chelation and restored health was not going to be quick.

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 immediate domestic and localised environmental toxins.

This page covers the process of chelation points 2 and 3, reducing the toxins put on the body and 3, to reduce the toxins in your immediate environment.

Point 1, is covered in other posts, food and drink consumption, posts 13, 14, 15 and 17.

\\\ Reducing Toxicity

2. Reducing and controlling things that are put on and around the body

Whilst a patient changes their diet to aid the chelation process and 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 reduce toxicity of the body and speed up the chelation process.

These changes to make were not known to the patient on day 1 of the diagnosis, but with research, were introduced all within the first 3 months of diagnosis.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Introduced using a year after chelation soft handcreams and foot creams which allegedly are about 92% organic having scrutinised the ingredients carefully.
  • It’s believed that following this removal, particularly of chemical based toiletries has helped not to overload the body of toxins when the toxicity particularly was recorded at its highest by way of blood tests.

    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 at the start of the chelation process. There are various selections of bathing salts aiding various medical complaints but most have a high inclusion of Magnesium.

    The bathing was 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 whilst in the bath. 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 elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity.

    Large sacks were reduced to smaller packets to keep the salts fresh once opened as the need to soak less so 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 a depth of 0.5cm. Whilst not deep, it noticeably helped in the stages of chelation.

    Dental ingested elemental/inorganic 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 and into the blood stream. Symptoms were noted from 2009 and had 7 years of ingestation and therefore, the elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity had much time to deposit deep around the face, jaw, and throughout the body before diagnosis was finally made.

    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 easier toxins to remove in organs and “surface” toxins resting in more accessible skin areas, particularly around the oral cavity, had been removed from the body, but the harder task of removing mercury toxins deep from within the bones remained and would take a much longer time, if ever, to completely remove.

    Saunas became less beneficial in the excretion of toxins at this point. The elemental/inorganic mercury just simply wasn’t sitting in the surface of the body anymore, but deep in bones.

    Covid-19 and the use of sanitisers

    The pandemic and Covid-19 posed new risks being severely elemental/inorganic mercury, nickel and palladium poisoning along with other dental metals and whilst 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 elemental/inorganic mercury resting heavily in bones and constantly being redeposited in the blood stream and (possibly lesser so after four years chelation of organs) that cause these problems and the constant redepositing of mercury from the blood stream back into the body.

    Plastic gloves are worn when shopping to help minimise the risk that Covid-19 virus spreads through touch although more and more recent research is pointing to the main cause through air droplets rather than touching items.

    Information about eczema caused by the toxicity can be read Post 6.

    Much focus is on mercury, but it’s evident that Palladium toxicity still remains in the body where symptoms around the eyes have barely been removed over the 5 years of chelating. Unfortunately no medical organisation or clinicians really know how to remove palladium successfully from the body and ‘hope’ that it is similar to mercury. This is now becoming questionable.

    Into the fifth year of chelation, where the chelation process is keeping the patient relatively free of 24/7 pain and visual symptoms for periods of time, the focus moves onto the removal of the mercury from the bones. Not only is there no scientific way to monitor this, this process becomes considerably harder than moving toxins from organs.

    \\\ Environmental Toxicity

    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 stop further ingestion of toxins during the night when in bed 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 this ingestion from exhausts, for example, caused by daily traffic when walking in our streets and 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.

    Candle burning

    Candles are so popular to light at home making a lovely ambience especially during long winter nights. However, popular and generally cheaper candles are made from dangerous paraffin wax and by-products that release nasty toxins when lit, combined with synthetic scents that are used to create a more pleasant smell than paraffin being burned! This is a typical example of how one can make the home environment a better place by not buying these types of candles and purchasing natural organic candles made with natural essential oils where ingestion of the vapour is harmful, and by doing this helping to minise toxicity in your body which in my case was already working ‘overtime’ trying to remove the dangerous dental ingested toxins.

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