Your post is very very informative. I didn't actually read any chelation stories, simply that during my last fight against candida (one year, where I battled intensely with antifungals, probiotics, immune boosters, all the arsenal), the turnaround was removing my amalgams.
I am sure I have heavy metal toxicity from having had mercury Amalgams in the first place, having lived in INdia and Nepal where all cooking is done in aluminium and where water is poisoned by not controled industries and Thailand where I ate shrimp most days for years (it is known to have lots of mercury).
You are so right that all elimination organs have to be functionning optimally. Mine are destroyed by massive candida - my bowels are leaking massive toxins into my skin (I practically have no gut wall, its so permeable); the liver is more or less always inflammed and congested as a result of chronic candida and way too much Antibiotics . So no.
But there must be a way to chelate and detox; because I dont think in my case I will recover until and unless I detox big time.
The problem with me is carrying this infection so long, my life force is so low that the body doesn't have the necessary strenght for heavy duty detox like enemas, Liver Flush etc. I have done it before, nearly killed me. Left me limp as a rag and lifeless as a dead fish.
Thanks for your advice. Which Cutler are you talking about?
