could you outline a day to day protocol for me? especially, the amino acids...
Hello Sam, /* Name Changed for Privacy */
I must state I am not a doctor.
Start with a Colon cleanse – Most heavy metals are stored in your guts. Stuck on their way to be eliminated.
Usually you want to eliminate the most dangerous heavy metals first based on quantity in your urine test – and based on your symptoms if any.
Then the following will help chelate and eliminate your specific heavy metals:
DMSA and/or NDF+ for mercury
EDTA for lead
ALA and any other form of amino acid will help against barium.
Vitamin supplement to compensate essential nutrients loss caused by EDTA, DMSA, NDF+.
Let me know if you have any questions.
A day to day protocol – there is no such thing that worked for me.
Based on my experience, when you see a protocol it buys you hope, not results.
However a lot of people ask me for a protocol, a formula.
I believe it took me years of failed attempts and theories detoxing heavy metals because I was so desperately looking for something like a program, something to follow line by line.
Detox might be closer to a philosophy, If there was a protocol, it would look like this:
I) Do colon cleanse and when complete go to step II, the process
II) The process:
Get strong enough to start a detox cycle with step III
Do supplements and rest to get ready for Step IV, Chelation
drink at least 2 times more quantity of water than thirst or regularly drinking.
Take Chelation Agents then go to step V, Supporters
Support your detox organs with supporting agents, depending of which one gets clogged.
When complete go to step II again, the process, until satisfied with health.
Milk thistle (liver)
Artichoke ( heart)
If you feel a pain somewhere, a detox organ might be overstressed by the detox process. Locate it on an anatomical chart and find the proper supplement to support that particular organ.
There is a tendency to want to keep going and do more chelation when in pain. As a rule of thumb. Don't move off of that step if in pain.
Quantity of supplements is tricky.
Based on my experience amino acids are hard on the digestive system due to their acidity.
You may take the same quantity every day and be sick in your stomach by the end of the week due to accumulation.
Better approach it intuitively. On a day to day basis.
Less is more. Since detoxing heavy metals is a process and not an event, like building muscles at the gym, better go slowly and safely than hurting yourself with an upset stomach and be out of the program for days.
2. I favor enemas to oral intake of supplements as acidity a bit more tolerated, more importantly, since absorption and efficiency are increased, less supplements will do.
3. Have fun with your detox. Although you need to be committed every day. Doing it and going about your business, taking your mind off of it is the best scenario.
In my experience, some cycles of detox don't show much progress and some others much more. Results are not events since detox is a process. The event of cause and effect did not apply to me. There seem to be a lag between results and awareness of results that misleads what caused what.
So be consistent with the program, so you know exactly what you need to hold off if anything.
4. Be patient. Detox is not on your mind's agenda but on your body's agenda.
