Would someone please tell me what EDTA stands for. Is it good for our fibro?
Its a safe chemical used to chelate (claw out) heavy metals like lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic from our tissues. It works especially well with lead.
DMSA works the best with mercury.
Lead is used as solder for copper pipes and plumbing. Leaded glass "crystal", pewter, insecticides. Leaded gas was sold for decades. Still sold in Mexico.
Heavy metals tend to shut down the immune system. Weak immune systems are part of the problem in FM/CFS patients.
