The chelator is a complex chemical. It is not known what effects it has on the body.
One effect that is known is that the chelator does not only catch heavy metal ions. It catches other ions too. This counteracts the body’s own homeostasis, and it will cause an electrolyte imbalance.
Some chelator chemicals are blocked by the blood-brain barrier. That’s for a reason… Still, they do circulate in all other parts of the body, which contain nerve fibres as well. The blood-brain barrier can of course only protect the nerves in the brain from hazardous chemicals; it can not protect the nerves elsewhere from those chemicals.
Depending on which chemicals you ingest, other side effects may be a shortage of calcium, irreversible damage to the kidneys, liver problems that may or may not be permanent, skin rashes, headache (only for those chemicals that are not blocked by the blood-brain barrier).
You may also suffer from muscle cramps, which are caused by a shortage of essential ions like potassium and magnesium, combined with the neurotoxic effect of chelators.
In some cases, an auto-immune disorder may result from chelating; if you’re unlucky, this auto-immune disorder may result in the body attacking its own insulin, which creates effects that are very similar to those of diabetes.
Higher doses or prolongued usage of chelators is known to be both neurotoxic and carcinogenic.

The question is: what is the true cause of your suffering?
If it’s heavy metals, chelating will of course still do harm, but it will also do good. In this case, the good may be more important than the harm.
But that’s only the case if your suffering is really caused by heavy metal poisoning. If your suffering is caused by something else, chelating will not help, and you will only cause more stress on your body.
Please don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying you should not chelate. All I’m saying is that chelating remedies a certain problem. IF you have this problem, you should chelate. If you DON’T have this problem, you should NOT chelate.
That’s why I’m saying you should test for the problem before starting this treatment.

Nope. Refer to what I wrote above. These side effects are real.

This cannot be true, considering the chemical working mechanism of chelators. Chelators do not mobilize heavy metals, they immobilize them.
