Treatment for Mercury Poisoning

One method of treatment for mercury poisoning is chelation.

Chelate is a chemical that attracts a metal to it instead of being attracted to human tissue, such as the brain and nervous tissue.

Eventually this mixture of chelate and mercury is sent out of the body as waste, for example, urine. However, some scientists are saying that there is not enough proof that this therapy is truly useful in the reversing of mercury toxin. More research is needed.
