Chelation and the Klenner Protocol
The truth is that it has not been precisely justified how the combination of the constituents of the protocol works for MS. Scientific research, profit-oriented, CRAB – centered and guided, is not able and above all it doesn’t aim at providing reasonable responses. Nevertheless, one can make several hypotheses about each suggested constituent by analyzing its properties and draw secure conclusions based on scientific research.
1. Find ways to reduce as much as possible the generation of new millions of free radicals generated in our body by the binding of metals and free radicals through chain reactions (Vitamin C, E and other antioxidants mentioned below help to that)
- Try to consume proteins all the time, mainly animal (except pork which is very fatty) but vegetarian as well (eg sea algae) according to the protocol. Protein amino-acids contain sulfur that highly facilitates the detoxification procedure. Avoid any proteinic supplement of unreliable origin.
- Try to maintain 2 to 3 bowel movements per day. If there is a constipation problem read here. Remember that 90% of the mercury (a heavy metal known to be one of the most toxic ones) is expelled in our stools.
- Don’t miss your daily injection of Thiamine (Β1)(1): Thiamine, being a main injectable vitamin in the protocol, has been found to play an important role in the confrontation of heavy metals (arsenic, lead, mercury etc). Especially mercury and lead compete with Thiamine absorbing the Sulfur contained in it. Sulfur is known to act as a magnet for heavy metals.
- Biotin (vitamin Β7 contained in Β100): The second vitamin which contains sulfur.
- Vitamin Β6 (Pyridoxine – contained in Β100): Necessary to the metabolic procedure that transforms methionine into cysteine and followingly to glutathione (amino-acid transformed into strong antioxidative means).
- Magnesium: Metals such as Magnesium are necessary to the optimal functioning of our immune system, as much as to hundreds of enzymatic systems of prime importance for human health. In this way foods are more easily absorbed without irritating the digestive track that plays a crucial role to heavy metals excretion.
- Take your antioxidants every day: All antioxidants in the protocol (Vitamin C(2), E, Beta Carotene-Vitamin Α, Selenium(3)) including Thiamine, play an irreplaceable role to the fight against new free radicals being multiplied in the presence of heavy metals.
- Drink alkaline water.
- Exercise according to your condition, but do it systematically and under supervision. Sweating is a good way to excrete toxins and the skin is one of the main detoxification organs.
- You can take Chlorella. Chlorella is a species of algae that helps remove toxic metals from the connective tissue of our body. It contains high levels of chlorophyll which is one of the most pure and strong foods on earth. One cannot take excessive amount of Chlorella. Check your dose by trials, starting from a low dose and increasing gradually every 2-3 days.
- Include garlic in your regiment if you are not allergic or intolerant to it, not in supplement form but in fresh natural form. In this way you enhance the Sulfur reserves of your body. 2-3 cloves per day for as long as your program lasts sound like a good idea. Crush the cloves so as to set their active ingredients free.
- Start taking MSM (4). MSM is a kind of Sulfur acting on the membranes of the cells and thus helping your body to get rid of mercury.
- Start using coriander (5). Coriander will contribute to the movement of mercury from the tissues, so as Chlorella will be able to bind with it and guide it out of the body through bowel movements. Coriander is found in most health food stores, super markets or shops selling spices. You can also add it to vegetable juices (being an excellent source of metals such as Calcium and Magnesium). Coriander alone is not enough to totally remove heavy metals from the body.
(1)Lead and mercury are strongly anti thiamine, binding to the sulfur entity in thiamine.
Heavy metal poisoning is typically characterized by symptoms common with thiamine deficiency since metals, such as arsenic or lead, block a crucial metabolic step converting thiamine to its co-enzyme form. Omar Alvarado, Thomas J. Fellers and Michael W. Davidson
