I'm a regular blood donor and often wondered how to set up a chelation protocol before my next donation to maximize the loss of any metal toxins. Has anyone use Chelation supplements and every tried this? I've thought of using DMSA prior to donation.
Would this work short-term? If so, what effect might it have? What time frame am I looking at? I don't know enough about Chelation to know if there is any merit to the idea. I'm not sure if I could do it before my next donation anyway as it's in 2 weeks.

I would stay away from chelation therapy personally, because it can be very rough on the body. One of the most common side effects is profuse diarrhea (when the body wants to get rid of crap, it draws water into the intestines along with whatever is plaguing it and then diarrheas it out.)
Intestinal bacteria chelate heavy metals and chelate them in a much more gentle way. I'd recommend just taking a high dose of probiotics. VSL#3 is a good brand.
