Environmental diseases
The chelation, an indispensable therapy with a future

What do we mean by environmental diseases?
These are diseases with origins in one or more pollutants in our environment.
Among these constantly increasing diseases are cases of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, depression, chronic infections, recurrent mycosis, electro-sensitivity, autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis, autism, Alzheimer’s disease and cancers.
They all have a common peculiarity which is a weakening of the immune system and therefore an open door to viruses, bacteria, fungal infections, autoimmune diseases and cancers.
This weakening is one of the consequences of the pollution of water, air and food which have never contained as much heavy metals and pesticide residues in the history of humanity.
No one today escapes environmental pollution.
The toxicity of heavy metals, associated with an individual genetic susceptibility, indeed seems to be responsible for the vertiginous progression of these disorders.
Gilles-Eric Séralini, Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Caen, said this:
“We need to understand the combined and long-term effects of pollutants in our body. These are probably responsible for 80% of the diseases that will affect human health in the 21st century, in particular, cancers and hormonal diseases. (…) OUR BODIES HAVE BECOME POLLUTANT SPONGES. I participated in establishing more than 400 pollutants in the genes of human fetuses, such as: Hydrocarbons, dioxins, pesticides, residues of plastic, glue, printing ink … “

Heavy metals are toxic and can even be extremely toxic and the worst is Mercury.
A very impressive film shot at the University of Calgary (video: How Mercury Causes Brain Neuron Degeneration) shows how Mercury destroys the tubulin system in the nervous system. The enormous toxicity of Mercury has been demonstrated for the first time on a large scale in Japan in Minamata Bay. What happened? In 1932, a chemical fertilizer factory, the Chisso factory, moved to Minamata, a quiet bay populated by a fishing community. The fishermen did not know anything about the plant’s activities and did not know that its toxic poisons were going into their nets. Over the years, they witnessed a strange phenomenon. Cats that fed on the remains of human foods started displaying abnormal behaviors. Some even threw themselves into the sea. Then, in the 1950s, strange diseases also began to appear in the fishing families. Convulsions, tremors, involuntary movements, eye and hearing disorders, staggering gait, fatigue, etc. Mothers gave birth to children with severe disabilities. The doctors were wondering why. For years, the key to the mystery remained hidden. The strange evil persisted. Babies were born with chromosomal abnormalities and severe malformations. Those who seemed unharmed at birth did not develop normally, had severe language delays, coordination disorders and withdrawal into autism. While the phenomenon continued to increase, the Chisso factory carried out its own secret testing. By feeding the cats shells of fish – that tends to fix heavy metals – they were able to confirm that it was the Mercury that was at the origin of these disorders. But they chose to stay quiet. It was not until 1959 that the source responsible was finally identified: 27 tons of Mercury dumped into the sea by the factory industry. Through the food chain, the level of Mercury in the fish was in some cases several thousand times higher than that of the water in which they lived.

In the 1980s, some doctors, including a Dr. Melet, became aware of the dangers of Mercury that dentists had been putting in teeth for decades. They had thought this metal was not harmful when “amalgamated” and that therefore it did not leak. Many studies have shown this is not the case. It is possible to put amalgam containing a radioisotope in an animal and find, in the days that follow, the radioisotope in the blood and urine. Mercury only lasts in the blood for 24 to 48 hours after which it diffuses into the tissue or it is eliminated.

Two major books in the history of the treatment of Mercury intoxication have been written by Dr. Melet, documenting spectacular results for chelotherapy in cases of intoxication by Mercury.  Two other remarkable books were written by Madame Françoise Cambayrac: “Truths about Emerging Diseases” and “Emerging diseases, how to cope”. Many passages in this article are taken from these two books. The environmental diseases mentioned are these emerging diseases.

On 15.11.2018, Dr Sittided Reymond – neurologist in Sion – wrote to Professor Thierry Buclin, Professor of pharmacology and clinical toxicology at CHUV:
“I have noted a systematic amount of pesticides in neurological patients having a priori NO usual RISK FACTOR, no smoking, no alcoholism, no particularly toxic drugs, no sedentary lifestyle and for the most part good clean life and few genetic predispositions to disease (no family history). These are very diverse diseases or symptoms ranging from degenerative inflammatory forms of polyneuropathies, MS, etc. Thanks to Mr Nicolas Donzé, the analyses sent to Professor Carlier at the University of Liège, confirm the presence of neurotics in all patients: organophosphorus, organochlorines, residues of TCPY, PCBs and others. The detection of pesticide residues and other NEUROTOXIC, IMMUNOTOXIC, CARCINOGENIC, MUTAGENIC, REPROTOXIC, AND ENDOCRINIAL DISRUPTERS suggests to me the possibility that certain symptoms or diseases may have an ENVIRONMENTAL ORIGIN. Although most values, taken in isolation, are not alarming, the accumulation of these substances contributes to the COCKTAIL EFFECT and may well be considered in some individuals to be a modifiable risk factor for diseases.”

Chelotherapy – which consists of catching heavy metals such as Mercury and getting them out of the body by the emunctories (urine and stool) – finds its place and meaning in the writings of Dr Sitthided Reymond. Chelotherapy, as the name suggests, is a therapy that eliminates neurotoxic, immunotoxic and carcinogenic substances but, in addition, allows for detection of intoxication.
No other method allows this assessment. Searching for heavy metals – in the urine, in the blood or in the hair – without the use of chelating products will not eliminate the suspicion of intoxication, except perhaps 48 hours following a severe intoxication. Indeed, in the important book of Professor Van der Schaar, director of the IBCMT (International Board for Clinical Metal Toxicology) it is confirmed that Mercury does not last more than 48 hours in the blood and therefore in the urine. After that it diffuses in the tissue or is eliminated naturally. Only with chelating products can one find heavy metals in the tissue and make a correct evaluation of poisoning. At most, one could take samples in certain organs but if it concerns the brain, it may be more complicated.

Among the chelating products, the most used is DMPS. In a letter of 23.10.17, Professor Thierry Buclin mentions that DMPS is a product that is on the list of Swiss official antidotes for the indication of mercury poisoning and other heavy metals. At the CHUV, Dimaval is the product used. In addition, DMPS is used by several doctors and clinics in Switzerland and is available at most pharmacies.

A medical detoxification center has been using this chelating product for many years and has been carrying out metal analysis in the largest laboratory in Europe, Micro Trace Laboratory. Measurements made in the urine, blank, without chelators or chelators show very significant differences.

Urine examinations for patients with symptoms that may correspond to heavy metal poisoning, reveal important levels of lead, mercury and arsenic. The results of 1959 samples analyzed by the Micro Trace laboratory between 2008 and 2018 were as follows:
Arsenic: average value 24, standard deviation 83, maximum value 1490, normal value 15.
Mercury: average value 12, standard deviation 24, maximum value 538, normal value is 1.
Lead: average value 16, standard deviation 18, maximum value 334, normal value 5.
(all these values are in micrograms / grams of creatinine)
It is quite remarkable that in all the samples examined the results show heavy metal poisoning.
This finding is similar to that of Dr. Reymond Sitthided, who found NEUROTOXIC levels in all his neurological patients.

Dr Daunderer, a renowned German physician and toxicologist, said: “The accumulation of toxic substances in the organs should be treated by administering a counter-poison and simultaneously measuring urinary excretion. The only appropriate treatment is DMPS.” DMPS is an excellent depolluting agent for Mercury, which has a long history of safety for fifty years. Dr. Melet cleansed babies of a few months of pollutants with this great counter poison. Dr. J. Mutter, wrote in 2000, in “Dental Amalgam, a Risk for Humanity”: “If DMPS is administered frequently, clinical improvements in patients are striking.” Schaefer and his team in Mannheim in 1994 in “Lehrbuch der Toxicologie” showed through their work that DMPS detoxifies all organs of the body.

Many testimonies have confirmed for us the idea that chelotherapy is essential. The following cases are some examples.

The first testimony is that of the mother of an autistic child:
I would like to thank you personally for your help with my 4 year old daughter, Amélie. My daughter was diagnosed with ASD
, Autism Spectium Disorder, at the end of 2015 and it is thanks to your heavy metal detoxification clinic that today she has almost no symptoms of this disease. She speaks (she was nonverbal) she looks you in the eye, she no longer has panic attacks and plays normally with other children at school. She even takes dance classes. Most of these results appeared with the chelation treatment she had at your clinic. Thank you very much for your work and your help.
Cordially. L.W.”

The second concerns a case of chronic fatigue syndromes:
“Dear Doctor C.
I finally take the time to thank you for treating me for heavy metals.
It took me a year of treatment (started in Belgium with your colleague, Verheyen) and another at your practice to finally get to the end of the “cleansing”. It is by moving from DMPS to DMSA last April that changes to my health proved more concrete.
My many ailments (chronic fatigue, zero energy, headaches, daily nausea, dizziness, heart trouble … and so on) have lessened and I finally found an almost normal life.
I must admit that two years ago I did not have any hope, having passed over several years in the hands of many doctors and specialists of all kinds who had no answer except to say that my symptoms were the consequence of a burn out and I had to see a psychologist.
What I did of course, to hear me say that I was sane, that my psychic problems were not due to a burn out, that there must have been a physical cause at the origin of my ills.
I am not afraid to say that you saved a life. (I was at the end of a long, wandering medical route of nearly 7 years)
Thank you with all my heart for what you do. X. de B”

The third testimony is that of the mother of a depressed teenager with Asperger syndrome:
“Dear Dr. C.I would just like to thank you for your help.At the beginning of this year, my daughter was not well, she had depression.
As a teenager, she had some social interaction difficulties with her classmates and for this reason we consulted and learned that she had Asperger Syndrome.
At the beginning of this year, she was not well at all and had been taking antidepressants for two months.
You cannot imagine how sad and exhausted we were. We came to see you.
We asked for detoxification of heavy metals.
She did DMPS and DMSA sessions.
Today she is well, she smiles, she found her old friends, passed her driving test and this week starts her courses at the University.
Dear doctor, I thank you with all my heart and I will be infinitely grateful for all that you have done for my daughter.

The fourth case – also very telling – is that of a patient with rheumatic disease described as fibromyalgia. She had a lot of trouble getting around if not using two canes. Here is her testimony:
“Following the reading of the book of François Cambayrac I decided to undertake treatment by chelation with Dr. C .. With his support, his advice, his prescriptions, my health has improved considerably.
Before the chelations, I had a lot of fatigue pains, I could not do anything, not even drive my car.
Today, after a year and a half of treatment and diet, I resumed my activities, hiking, rollerblading, motorcycle, my great passion.
I have a new job with of eleven hours a day including two hours of travel. But it’s great. Only happiness.
Thank you, C.K”

For the last session of chelotherapy, the patient came on a motorcycle from Monbelliard (in the Doubs), three hours away, with her husband on the back of the bike.
I cannot finish this brief presentation on chelotherapy without mentioning EDTA, an extremely effective chelator for Lead, Cadmium, Aluminum, Gadolinum and Calcium. The TACT1 (Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy) and TACT 2 studies have demonstrated the validity of this therapy in vascular problems, especially those related to diabetes complications.
Chelotherapy is an indispensable future therapy.

Finally, I will quote the great German philosopher Arthur Schoppenhauer (1788-1860):
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

Medicine is not an exact science; it is even said to be an art.

Art is also the capacity to look, feel and listen.Listen to the suffering of patients, not to think that we “know”, is more than fundamental.
We cannot eliminate the hypothesis of the Lyme disease on a negative serology. This is because bacteria (spirochete) “hide” in the biofilm or inside cells, which cannot be reached by antibodies.
As a result, even with negative serology, if suspicious, we are right to undertake a trial treatment with an antibiotic, or essential oils, which in most cases will give good/positive results. In these cases it would be wrong, or even absurd to “label” the patient with a psychiatric disease or “fibromyalgia” which are diseases treated by antidepressants.

Heavy Metals, Cardiovascular Disease, and the Unexpected Benefits of Chelation Therapy

This review summarizes evidence from 2 lines of research previously thought to be unrelated : the unexpectedly positive results of TACT (Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy), and a body of epidemiological data showing that accumulation of biologically active metals, such as lead and cadmium, is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Considering these 2 areas of work together may lead to the identification of new, modifiable risk factors for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. We examine the history of chelation up through the report of TACT. We then describe work connecting higher metal levels in the body with the future risk of cardiovascular disease. We conclude by presenting a brief overview of a newly planned National Institutes of Health trial, TACT 2, in which we will attempt to replicate the findings of TACT and to establish that removal of toxic metal stores from the body is a plausible mechanistic explanation for the benefits of edetate disodium treatment.

International Conference on Cardiovascular Medicine
Manchester, August 2016

Heavy metals play a major role in the development of  atherosclerosis in the body.
Since Framingham’s work, we have been blaming the wrong factors.

Sergio Mejia Viana MD, Ph.D established that Atherosclerosis is in not merely the result of a build up of fat deposits, but that it is in fact a chronic immune inflammatory disease.

The results of various different studies demonstrate that the alteration of miRNAs expression may  play a crucial role in heavy metal induced vascular injury.
Cadmium and  lead beimg the two elements which generate inflammation of the vascular system.
The body manufactures cholesterol for a reason. Cholesterol is a primary constituent that provides cell membranes with their integrity.
The association between lead and cardiovascular disease has been recognized for years.
A recent study provided conclusive evidence to supports the theory that Cadmium is a  major risk factor in the development of  cardiovascular disease, especially in the area of coronary heart disease.
Exposure to various environmental pollutants are known to induce epithelial and inflammatory changes which characterized by a release of inflammatory cytokines.
