DMSA (dimercapto succinic acid)
DMSAPro™ contains DMSA; a known potent chelator of mercury and lead. Regular use of DMSAPro™ can help to lower your body burdens of mercury by enabling you to excrete safely and naurally the toxic metals that enter our bodies by some of the most unexpected sources ie. dental fillings, birth control pills, contact lense solution and some vaccinations including Flu jabs and some vaccines.

In today’s modern society we are constantly being exposed to many toxins, often in places we least expect and toxins we’re not even aware of, including toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury. These toxic metals get into our bodies by some of the most unexpected sources ie. dental fillings, birth control pills, contact lense solution and some vaccinations and it is also known that pregnant women can pass the toxic metals on to their unborn children.
Vaccinations including Flu jabs are known to use Mercury as a preservative, although Mercury can often be replaced with Aluminium and Formaldehyde as well as other heavy metals.
There are increasing numbers of people suggesting there is a link between these types of vaccinations and autism.
When in our bodies, these toxic heavy metals affect our nervous system by short circuiting the nerve communication network, resulting in a communication breakdown between the nerves and subsequently our bodies getting sick.
Frequently Asked Questions:
My doctor recently had me do a 6-hour urine provocation test using one IV bag of DMPS followed by one bag of EDTA. The results showed that my mercury level is high, so she would like me to do 6 bags of DMPS over a 6-month period. In your opinion, how reliable is this method of testing?
I have read that it may not be an accurate way to measure heavy metals since pretty much anyone will show elevated levels of metals in their urine after being administered IV DMPS. If it is an accurate test, I have also read many reasons not to treat high mercury with IV DMPS and that oral DMSA may be a better option.
I had no noticeable side effects from the provocation test. Would IV DMPS be a good treatment plan for me, or should I stick with oral DMSA?
I appreciate any insight that you can provide.
Dr. Dean’s Answer:
Dear J.L., I believe the urine chelation challenge test is the most accurate way to determine heavy metal toxicity. Virtually any amount of mercury or lead is toxicâ€”and if, as you say, anyone will have heavy metals in their urine after DMPS or EDTA, then virtually everyone should undergo chelation therapy to eliminate these toxins. If there are no heavy metals in the body, they will not show up on these tests. But the more mercury or lead in your body, the greater the amounts that will show up in your urine following the chelation challenge. IV DMPS and oral DMSA are both very effective chelators of mercury, and EDTA is somewhat less effective. The choice of which to use is really up to the physician and the patient. DMSA was formerly available in the U.S. as a dietary supplement, but was knocked off the market several years ago by the FDA (“If the FDA doesn’t like something, it’s got to be good”). Unfortunately, prescription DMSA (Succimeer) is quite expensive (the dietary supplement was very cheap). Oral DMSA, of course is very convenient, while the IV DMPS requires periodic visits to your physician’s office. So the choice is really up to you. Both treatments will workâ€”and if your mercury levels are up, I recommend that you select one treatment modality and get started.
