The test procedures

The heavy metal concentrations can easily be determined with the heavy metal test. There are a wide variety of claims regarding the test procedure. Some therapists have a blood sample analyzed. The result is not representative because heavy metals are often found in the interstitium, the intercellular space and in the cells. With a cheating agent like DMPS, the metals can be mobilized from the intercellular space and then detected in the urine. The metals bound in the cells cannot be detected directly. Physiologically, however, there is always a certain balance between the concentrations inside and outside the cells. Therefore, the concentration in the cells can be estimated relatively well. Some advocate hair analysis. The examination is prone to failure due to stresses that are applied to the hair from the outside and, in the opinion of Dr. mother and in my opinion not suitable for estimating the total stored heavy metals. There are also a number of scanning methods. For example, a measuring probe is placed on the surface of the hand and a PC very quickly determines the supposed exposure to individual heavy metals. A colleague once said that the measurements are reproducible, i.e. the same results appear with repeated measurements, but nobody knows what is actually being measured. also dr Mother expressed skepticism when I asked him about it. I tested such a device. The concurrent laboratory analyzes often did not agree with the scan results. That's why I'm still going the conservative route of laboratory testing.

The procedure is simple. After emptying the bladder, the patient is injected with 1 amp. DMPS. Then he drinks 1-2 glasses of water and after an hour or two the patient takes a urine sample, usually already at home. The sample is sent by mail to the laboratory for analysis. The results can then be discussed. 37 metals are determined: silver, aluminum, arsenic, gold, boron, barium, beryllium, cadmium, cobalt, chromium, cesium, copper, iron, gallium, gadolinium, germanium, mercury, indium, iridium, lithium, manganese, molybdenum, nickel , Lead, Palladium, Platinum, Antimony, Selenium, Tin, Strontium, Titanium, Thallium, Uranium, Vanadium, Tungsten, Tin, Zirconium.

Some prefer the urine test before and after administration of the chelating agent. This way you can see how the values deteriorate from the first to the second sample.  I have done this in the past, but as I gained experience I wondered what an advantage it gave the patient. Ultimately, the examination will only be twice as expensive. The price per analysis is around €130. There is also a one-time fee of €18  for the DMPS.

It makes more sense to save the money for the 2nd test after several chelation sessions to check the detoxification. Then there is the discussion about the appropriate chelating agent for the test. DMPS binds all heavy metals relatively well. Only for lead and aluminum are there more suitable ones. However, if you have experience with the DMPS test, it is not so important whether a little less lead and aluminum is displayed. It is important that these metals can be detected by DMPS and that the values can then be correctly assessed based on experience, even if they would be higher with other chelating agents. Some choose EDTA as a test substance. This primarily binds lead. The other heavy metals are then less detectable.
