That's a powerful thought...that the metals decrease the effectiveness of herbs and meds.
From what I've learned thus far (I've come a long way in a year), I think that if I had to give advise to anyone...it would be to get the metals out first and foremost. This is why I think my NDs program is grossly flawed...he doesn't know anything about metals or how to chelate them. He won't even talk about them. That's why I only go 2x a year now, instead of once every 2 weeks and I only go for organ assessment and I'm doing my own program. I wasted a lot of dough chasing my tail trying to kill parasites and fix other problems while on his program...about $7K worth in 10mos. I think it all leads to one critical first step to regain health...and that's to chelate the metals.
