Hi, thanks for your post, it is always very interesting to hear genuine reviews from people who have tried things. Wow that is a lot of garlic cloves! I too am on a journey of detoxification. My problem is lead, and I have refused to try any chemical chelators. Can I ask what your metal problems were/are, if any? Or was it halides/fluoride you were aiming to get rid of? As you will read in my post above my biggest problem now is candida, which I have spread around my body in my efforts to detox metals.
