Mercury is incredibly heavy, about 1000 pounds for one cubic foot! It easily makes and breaks bonds with other elements. In a human body, mercury naturally bonds to sulfur, but unless it’s a very tight bond with a sulfur chelator, like DMSA, DMPS or ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid), it makes very loose connections, and in the presence of other sulfur molecules it will bounce back and forth between them. Mercury in the presence of sulfur is a bit like an overly exuberant 600-pound hillbilly at a square dance.
The hillbilly (mercury) breaks free from partners (sulfur thiols), and the dance routine whenever it wants, especially when it meets ’new’ sulfur molecules. It literally tromps all over the place, wrecking the joint. The more high-sulfur foods we ingest, the crazier the square dance gets. We are literally giving the hillbilly an unlimited amount of partners, and when that hillbilly decides to swing his partner, or dosey-do, or move in another direction, there isn’t anything you or I can do about it. If we try to stop him, we are going to be stepped on, or knocked up against the wall.
Not understanding the dangers of mercury, many healthcare practitioners recommend sending in more square dancers (sulfur thiols.) They think that more is better, but it’s the exact opposite. With more square dancers in this situation, we will only end up with a whole bunch more pain and crying, and square dancers with broken arms and legs.
This is where DMSA, DMPS, and ALA come into play. They are the security guards of the event, and can walk that hillbilly towards the exit door. However, we have to remember that these chelators have half-lives, and mercury is way bigger and tougher than they are. They can only hold onto mercury tightly, with both arms, for 3-4 hours before they tire out. So the security staff needs a constant supply of new chelators, to help escort mercury out the exit door. Chelation with DMSA and ALA must be done every 3 hours, for 3 days straight, to expel mercury from our bodies.
