In the beginning, I was having a hard time with the magnesium edta IVs, getting really harsh liver symptoms from the detoxing. It stopped as soon as I started using this special "cocktail" one of my doctors suggested: one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice (fresh is extremely important, he emphasized), one tablespoon of ACV (apple cider vinegar, a good one, not the Heinz crap variety) and one tablespoon of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil). I did this twice a day on an empty stomach while I was chelating. I did the cocktail every day, not just on chelation days, and I did the IVs twice a week for 2 months. It cleared up my liver symptoms right away and I was able to tolerate the highest dose of edta with no problems. It actually tastes pretty good, but it burns the throat a bit so you'll want a chaser after you down it, I was using apple juice. I'll be doing more chelation soon and I still do the cocktails now and then, regardless - they are quite addicting and seem to be keeping my liver in good shape. :victory: Also, make sure you drink plenty of water, especially before, after and during chelation. It really makes a difference in how you feel and eases the strain on the poor liver and kidneys. I bring a one liter bottle of water with me and drink it while I sit there for 3 hours.
