MS and Heavy Metals

The body has its own system to remove metal, but in some cases chelation therapy is used. For example, chelation removes heavy metals like lead in lead-poisoning. Some practitioners have considered chelation for MS as well, but Chelation IV is very controversial, speak to your health practitioner before starting any new regimen to look at the pros and cons.

It is estimated that tens of thousands of people with MS in the US use chelation. There are two types of chelation: chelation IV, and oral chelation (oral chelation has not been proven to work as well).

Foods that Help Remove Heavy Metals


Cilantro mobilizes toxic metals from the central nervous system and other tissues. A researcher named Dr. Yoshiaki Omura, using bioenergetic measures, discovered that some patients excreted more toxic metals after consuming a Chinese soup containing cilantro. Cilantro is the leafy part of a common herb whose seed, coriander, is a familiar culinary spice. Its active component is a mercaptan that can penetrate the blood brain barrier.

     Cilantro stimulates the body's release of mercury and other heavy metals from the brain and CNS into other tissue. Cilantro’s postulated mechanism of action is to act as a reducing agent changing the charge on the intracellular mercury to a neutral state allowing mercury to diffuse down its concentration gradient into connective tissue.


Garlic, contains both chelating amino acids L-methionine and L-cysteine, mobilizes and extracts cadmium, lead, arsenic and mercury within our bodies.
