How Supplements Are Important When Chelating

The Mineral Wheel – Post 18

Elemental/Inorganic mercury – palladium – nickel dental toxicity

For successful chelation of chronic and severe dental ingestion which included elemental/inorganic mercury, palladium, and nickel toxicity recorded at the highest levels, it is imperative to start chelating.

This chelation did not use chemical compounds.

Whilst there is no specific recognised chelation programme offered by the NHS, numerous private consultations, various medical papers coupled with the Mineral Wheel were consulted and a plan for recovery was put in place.

The three key minerals that require boosting during chelation are found to be Vitamin C. Selenium and Magnesium.

Additionally, Calcium greatly helps where the toxicity may be chronic due to inorganic mercury seeking to rest in the bones, years before diagnosis, and as The Mineral Wheel suggests, Iodine too.

There’s a lot of talk in the UK press currently by NHS clinicians alleging that supplements being consumed by the UK public for a range of symptoms are not effective.

There was, and is no recognised NHS detox programme for severe chronic dental ingestion, additionally sped up tenfold by Oral-Electro galvanism for many years, so it would be unwise for those clinicians to offer any advice or diagnosis including information about the quality of supplements to patients diagnosed with severe chronic dental ingestion.

Several medical papers suggest that it may be imperative to supplement the chelation process, particularly in the early stages with certain supplements. For example –

Margaret Sears wrote for The Scientific World Journal, 2013, an interesting paper, an NCBI resource where she is concluding matters about chelation. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3654245/. –

“Overall, during chelation therapy mobilization must equal excretion, so adequate hydration and bowel regularity are essential. A variety of products may assist in interrupting enterohepatic recirculation of toxicants.

Pharmaceutical chelating agents may also be considered, to assist with mobilization and excretion.”

“Chelating agents will mobilize the most readily available metals first. Oral supplementation including additional minerals and vitamins are essential to aid recovery”.

Margaret Sears

Margaret Sears papers particularly noted the use of Vitamin C, Magnesium and Selenium.

It has to be noted that the patient was-

Diagnosed with chronic elemental (dental) mercury poisoning (that becomes inorganic mercury due to the many other metal vapours it mixed within the oral cavity and ingestion) for approximately seven years, additionally sped up by Oral-Electro galvanism, requiring chelation which is a method of removing certain heavy metals from the bloodstream, used especially in treating lead or mercury.

During chelation, food consumption was, and still is maximised to provide the best nutritional values, where additional use of supplements are used, needed to support the body, particularly noted after the end of the dental treatment where mixed metals were removed from the mouth, which included severely leeching amalgams (aka mercury fillings). You can read more about the removal process in Post 10, Holistic Dentists.

Colder UK winter weather generally requires more supplements to be added to the diet, such as Vitamin D, normally obtained naturally from our summer sunshine.

Lots of walking and periods of rest are taken daily, essential to try and keep fit even with severe aching joints.

Mineral Interaction 

It has been known for many years that there are experienced therapists who have had patient successes using a range of methods to remove toxins, partly with the help of supplements, by mineral antagonism. The level of severity of toxicity, the point of which patients started their chelation by these means generally isn’t disclosed.

It seems that therapists talk about seeing patients sometimes a year later or so where symptoms begin to reappear, which possibly may give the indication of how severe their toxicity was, to begin with.

In my case, having had seven years of dental ingested toxicity and levels tested indicated extremely high levels were suggestive, chelation periods were far more frequent.

After a chelation period of consuming 200gms of chlorella, over approximately 6 weeks, the period between the next period was as little as 4-6 weeks, when symptoms would be starting to reappear. This perhaps indicates the levels of severity of the toxicity in the organs and mercury resting in the bones.

The Mineral Relationship Wheel

The Mineral Relationship Wheel, a visual tool, was developed by Ken Eck of Analytical Research Labs, Phoenix, Arizona, providing insight into how minerals interact with other minerals in the body.

TOXIC HEALTH CO UK Mineral Relationship wheel

For example, you’ll see from the lines, Manganese (Mn) depletes Magnesium (Mg), there is mutual antagonism with Selenium (Se). Mutual interference with Copper (CU). Calcium depletes Manganese (Mn).

Mercury (Hg) depletes Iodine, (I) depletes Magnesium, (Mg) depletes Silica, (Si) mineral interference with Selenium (Se). No mineral depletes mercury.

The Wheel was particularly of interest because of mercury’s mineral relationships and followed due to the high levels of toxicity in the bloodstream, confirmed by several metal blood tests and more refined dental blood tests. The severity is poignant where no mineral depletes mercury.

It was painstaking work measuring and analysing every type of food being consumed in the daily diet, before purchasing food and consumption each week, but consider it helped enormously to speed up the chelation process, particularly during the first 2-3 years.

A list of foods was compiled to be added or removed from the already adjusted diet that included –

  • The Glutathione Diet
  • The Oxlate Diet
  • Removed high RDI (Recommened daily intake) foods known to redeposit mercury back into the bones
  • Removed foods prone to cause Nickel toxicity

The Mineral Relationship Wheel was highlighted in Louisa Williams book ‘Radical Medicine’ where certain chapters of the book are an interesting and most helpful aid to metal toxicity recovery.

During the first two years of chelation, supplements were taken more heavily, to support the changing diet, for boosting vitamins, magnesium, selenium, calcium, iodine, and zinc, using the mid-priced, quality supplement brand, Solgar.

Vitamin C

Oranges are an important source of Vitamin C

Vitamin C supplement – Sambucol black elderberry liquid

Vitamin C mineral – Oranges

Vitamin C is extremely important for the patient suffering toxicity. We’re all taught from an early age how important Vitamin C is to consume for a healthy diet, and particularly easy to consume by eating an orange which can provide anywhere between 60 and 70 per cent of the Dietary Recommended Intake (DRI) of Vitamin C nutrient requirement daily. Other vegetables such as carrots, kiwi, watercress help to bolster up the daily value intake, quickly.

All fruit and vegetables consumed were and still are organic, now into the sixth year of chelation, trying to reduce the number of foods grown with pesticides, fertilizers, and chemicals from entering an already overburdened toxic body.

Suffering from incredible blistering severe pressure headaches, known to be caused by mercury in the bloodstream passing through the blood barrier, they progressively worsened until they kept you in bed for 36 hours, or more, unable to operate and think laterally.

It was incredible to find during the early stages of chelation that consuming 4 or 5 organic oranges in quick succession, helped relieve the pain and seemed to ‘move’ these frightening persistent pressure headaches on, moving mercury in the bloodstream to re-locate elsewhere in the body, which it is famed for doing.

Additionally, Sambucol black elderberry liquid was purchased to additionally help bolster the immune system. Available from all good chemists.

Organic elderberries are very hard to find in grocers in the UK but are used in a huge range of cough medicines for their beneficial Vitamin C source, the highest Vitamin C DRI levels one can consume from a piece of fruit or vegetable.

Sambucol was consumed periodically over the first 3 years of chelation and when it was felt the body needed boosting, sometimes during the winter months along with Solgar Vitamin D, and when taking the chlorella + coriander chelation. (Read more about this incredible algae and herb combination in a previous post, Chlorella and Coriander, Post 14.

After five years of chelation, toxic symptoms still persist. Some symptoms are less, but others still remain, disappointingly, as they were five years ago. 1 organic orange is still consumed daily to ensure Vitamin C is consumed, if not 2.

During the chelation period, more Vitamin C is consumed including using the Sambucol black elderberry liquid.

Less blistering headaches still persist but organic oranges are consumed immediately to ‘move’ the symptom on, to re-circulate around the body. At the height of the toxicity, one would see constant black spots/swords/hollows falling from top to bottom of one’s vision constantly for hours. It limited what you could do and made one quite unsafe, however, bolstering Vitamin C levels helped again to remove this quickly.

Another symptom is the stinging of the eyes often contributed to palladium toxicity. No organisation globally knows how to remove chronic dental palladium ingestion from the body.

Now, six years into chelation, one periodically suffers from very sore eyes, where you want to continually keep rubbing them. The pain will wake you if asleep. This is generally followed by vision interference where one sees strange shapes falling in front of you, rather like snake shapes.

It has been found that consuming Vitamin C helps prevent this continuing, about ten minutes after consuming a couple of organic oranges and Sambucol black elderberry liquid, it appears to stop the interference and symptoms re-locate to a different part of the body through the bloodstream. The amount of Vitamin C would possibly equal about 3 days worth of the DRI value.

An organisation called PAN regularly measures the pesticides found in our food for sale and a recent Guardian newspaper article highlights that oranges can be one of the ‘dirty 12’ fruits and vegetables high in pesticides.

It cannot be stressed enough that eating organic fruit and vegetables during chelation is very important, lessening the toxic burden on the body.


Brazil nuts are an important source of Selenium

Selenium supplements – Solgar selenium

Selenium minerals – Brazil nuts

When the first initial blood testing, the 16 Metals Blood tests were received, selenium was recorded as too low, and urgent action had to be taken immediately to improve.

Selenium is found naturally in consuming brazil nuts, where one large brazil nut can have as much as 100% of the selenium required of the RDI needed, and you can read more about this in Post 15, Chelating With Foods.

Having a poor performing thyroid at the start of diagnosis of elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity, it was imperative to increase selenium levels naturally, and as quickly as possible. Toxic inorganic mercury vapour is well known to attack the lymph nodes and already at that stage my throat was already feeling ‘very tight,’ 24/7, and the ability to be able to sing, had now disappeared where the vocal chord was affected and still remains so six years later.

Brazil nuts were consumed, and still are, along with periods of using Selenium supplements to relieve the body from eating the nut as there are several reports suggesting that long periods of eating high levels of selenium can lead to other toxic complications. The Solgar selenium brand supplement is bought periodically, as an alternative, to give the body a change from eating the nut.

It has to be noted that selenium cannot only work as a chelator binding with mercury in the bloodstream but also aids re-depositing, so increased levels consumed whilst aiding the thyroid may also be helping to retain levels of mercury by redepositing back into the bones. Chelation really is a ‘balancing’ act.

Margaret Sears wrote for The Scientific World Journal, 2013, an interesting paper, an NCBI resource, Chelation: Harnessing and Enhancing Heavy Metal Detoxification—A Review.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3654245/ where she states –

“(v) Selenium is an important essential element, that is present at a broad range of levels across populations. The selenide ion forms an extremely stable, insoluble compound with mercury, and provides relief of mercurialism symptoms. On the face of it, selenide might not be compatible with chelation, as the two agents may counter the effectiveness of one another [62]; however, selenium may be incorporated in organic molecules, and organic selenium/mercury complexes may be transported through membranes. Selenium depletion in the face of mercury exposures also depletes seleno-enzymes. In humans, organic selenium supplementation was beneficial in a controlled trial among 103 mercury-exposed villagers [63]. A selenium yeast product increased mercury excretion and decreased oxidative stress-related biomarkers urinary malondialdehyde and 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine [63]”.

Using the brazil nut helped restore the thyroid by 75% back to near normal healthy working levels during the first year of chelation and when much dental work was still being undertaken removing nasty toxic mixed metals from the oral cavity.

Today, the nut is taken but in reduced levels, being no more than one organic nut daily. Sometimes, if in huge pain, then maybe up to three during the day, but there is no scientific way of knowing whether this action re-deposits all or little of the elemental/inorganic mercury in the bloodstream actually back into the bones or actually helps more excretion on that day.

Magnesium Supplements – Solgar Chelated Magnesium – Westlab Epsom Salts

Magnesium Minerals – Various

It is well known that the UK population is severely mineral depleted, especially magnesium.  Read > Ancient Minerals.

Recent medical reports suggest, the UK population is even more so, where EU flour has been used for decades in bread production which is less magnesium nutritious than US flour that the UK used to use, where bread has always been the main consumption of the mineral for everyday food consumption.

Due to the effect of mercury working with manganese that depletes magnesium that causes multiple imbalances that lead to other different conditions, it was evident to cut out those foods being consumed that were particularly high in manganese values from the daily diet and increase those foods in magnesium.

Magnesium supplements were taken daily, using the Solgar supplement brand, about 50% of the DRI recommended, along with magnesium infused baths, the extra magnesium being effectively obtained by bathing in Westlab Epsom Salts, and a number of high DRI foods.

At the very start of chelation, baths were being taken daily, for example, soaking for at least 30 minutes allowing the magnesium to soak into the whole body. It was an extremely effective way of balancing and correcting a low magnesium level quickly. This reduced to every other day, to every few days, over the years. Today, 6 years into chelation, a magnesium-infused bath is still taken every few days.

The diet is still followed today of reducing high daily value intake of manganese foods such as mussels, pine nuts, hot chocolate drinks, sweet potatoes, hazelnuts, and many more, out of the diet, whilst increasing those foods high in daily magnesium nutrient values. This is a little more tricky because there are not many foods that are super rich in magnesium, a portion of pumpkin seeds (roasted) approximately 37% of the DRI intake, followed by chia 26, almonds 19, spinach, 18 and cashews at 15%.

Chelating ‘Stiffness’

When chelating, there was extreme stiffness of the limbs when taking Chlorella and Coriander after a couple of weeks or so highlighting an imbalance of minerals, and even more Vitamin C, Selenium, and Magnesium were consumed.

After 3.5 years of undertaking and consuming the Chlorella chelation diet programme, it has been stopped, and now every 3-4 weeks, just 4 to 5 days Chlorella is consumed. This seems to have improved any signs of stiffness and appears to continue to excrete mercury, keeping symptoms minimal.


Taking extra magnesium is well known among the dental and medical profession alleging that it will help with teeth clenching and bruxism. Often towards the end of the chelation period, when limb stiffness is occurring, so is teeth clenching.

Having never suffered from bruxism, grinding of the teeth, as the NHS doctor incorrectly diagnosed, but from teeth clenching. There’s a big difference between bruxism and clenching, and there was no visual evidence ever of bruxism, confirmed by 3 independent dentists, even 7 years after the NHS doctor at The Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, diagnosed.

Teeth clenching symptoms worsened significantly as Oral-Electo Galvanism took hold in the mouth prior to mixed metals being removed along with the amalgam (aka mercury) fillings. Clenching started to reduce as dentistry works finished and the Chlorella chelation programme stepped up.

Today, clenching occurs very irregularly, and simply rub the tiniest amount of salt on the gums which stops the clenching almost immediately. No salt is added to the diet and very little is obtained from pre-packaged foods and sauces as only a handful may ever be bought and rarely consumed.

There are many symptoms one suffers from elemental/inorganic mercury, palladium, and nickel chronic ingested dental toxicity which has been detailed in Posts 3-5.


Balancing food minerals correctly was sometimes tricky but supplements were, and still are, most definitely needed due to the debilitating effects of elemental/inorganic mercury, now ‘resting in the bones’ throughout the body and other toxic metals.

There really isn’t any scientific way to measure the amount of mercury deposited in the bones currently which makes successful chelation so difficult.

Tests of the blood, urine, and hair for mercury, Tri-tests, are available but do not relate well to the actual amount left deposited in the body after the first initial testing. They bear little significance to actually how much toxicity remains in the bones.

The Quicksilver “Tri-test” results were no better than the Biolab 16 metals Blood and Urine Tests taken, other than providing alarming evidence of how much toxicity initially was flowing through the bloodstream and the small amounts being excreted daily.

Overall, during chelation therapy mobilization must equal excretion,

Margaret Sears

To achieve chelation therapy mobilization to equal excretion is hard to achieve in chronic cases, when the mercury has had a head start with more than 7 years to rest in the bones, however, is important in acute cases to achieve immediately, acute and chronic cases differ, and where acute cases can use chemical chelators.

Melissa dental ingestion tests provided clearer, more detailed evidence of the levels associated with inorganic mercury, palladium, nickel, and other dentistry-related metals evident in the bloodstream.

Much of the chelation success has been ‘getting to know your body signals’ and adjusting supplement levels accordingly.

This information is a successful detoxification programme used by the patient. No two patients suffering from chronic dental ingestion poisoning will require identical detoxification.

Now in the sixth year of chelation, old known symptoms start to reappear after five weeks from the last chelation, but with far less velocity. It’s disappointing that they return so quickly, and that the chelation process is so slow. It perhaps identifies how badly the body was poisoned.

It also has to be remembered that no organisation has globally any idea how to chelate toxic dental palladium from the body and this may be preventing the quicker chelation of mercury.

Fresh organic food is still prepared daily making up approximately 60% of a raw diet, notably more during summer months. Cooking only involves steaming, lightly boiled, or saute processes. No microwave cooking, baking, roasting, grilling, or other methods are used and Glutathione and Oxalate diets are still followed as in previous years.
