    Hi. I"m looking for best supplements and others' experiences with chelating cadmium and nickel, when mercury is NOT an issue. (I know you have to be extra careful when mercury is involved, fortunately it is not.) Dxd with both hair and muscle testing. My dr suggested zinc, but a week of supplementing zinc has just caused constipation and not led to any real relief.

    I've found a single source saying Quercetin is good for cadmium toxicity. (But not chelating it). Incidentally, Quercetin gave me my life back for about four months last year, when it suddenly stopped working, and hasn't been beneficial since.

    Thank you.

    Read Andrew Cutler's book "Amalgam Illness". While the main focus is on mercury, he has info on chelating other metals too.

    Cutler says DMSA & maybe ALA.

    But yes, you need to buy his book so you do it properly.

    Cadmium is tricky as it requires neutral kidney pH for it to mobilise - otherwise it gets stuck there. For me, that means sipping bicarb drinks.
