    Pretty important stuff! About 40 minutes nto the talk he presents his company's "solutions" to the mercury issue.

    He does sell a product but it seems like it's worth looking into. I'm not sure how different it is from other silica products but it says it's proprietary.

    The Intestinal Metals Detox (IMD) is a proprietary product that consists of highly purified silica carrier with covalently
    attached metal-binding groups. The product is insoluble and functions to bind heavy metals in the gut so that they can be safely eliminated with the bowels; this prevents both absorption of the heavy metals and the generation of free-radicals catalyzed by the metals.

    In fact, the product can also directly neutralized free-radicals in the gut and thus may play a role in damping gastrointestinal inflammation. Both the silica base and the binding agent are GRAS (generally recognized as safe) for use in food, but since the binding agent is firmly attached to the insoluble silica, it is not absorbed and thus not bioavailable. The product contains no known allergens and no allergic reactions have been reported to date.

    It doesn't say what the active ingredients are, apart from silica. Klinghardt sells something similar called microsilica I think.
    Why would you want to buy something so expensive and unproven when there are chelators that do work, with an establishes safety recor, at a fraction of the cost?

    Yeah, this product looks like the same thing Klinghardt is selling. Can you post the chelators that are proven? I'm not well versed in this area - I'm just learning...

    This company makes a silica product, too - http://www.orgonosilica.com/

    It's about 1/3 the price but I'm not sure how it compares to the Quicksilver product.

    fyi-

    Quicksilver Scientific has developed a sophisticated detoxification system based on enhancing the natural removal of metals through the intestines using a proprietary compound, IMD (Intestinal Metals Detox).

    The Intestinal Metals Detox (IMD) is a proprietary product that consists of highly purified silica carrier with covalently
    attached metal-binding groups. The product is insoluble and functions to bind heavy metals in the gut so that they can be safely eliminated with the bowels; this prevents both absorption of the heavy metals and the generation of free-radicals catalyzed by the metals. In fact, the product can also directly neutralized free-radicals in the gut and thus may play a role in damping gastrointestinal inflammation. Both the silica base and the binding agent are GRAS (generally recognized as safe) for use in food, but since the binding agent is firmly attached to the insoluble silica, it is not absorbed and thus not bioavailable. The product contains no known allergens and no allergic reactions have been reported to date.

    I'm not sure what "covalently attached metal-binding groups" means... I guess that's the "proprietary" part...?

    For mercury? alpha lipoic acid, dmps, dmsa.
    some information on this site http://onibasu.com/wiki/Autism_Mercury
    Just an addition: dmps is not that cheap!

    Thanks! There's alot of controvercy with all of this. Some people say that the chelation doesn't get all the mercury out... I'm really looking for alternatives that I can do on my own, without doctor supervision.
