I have spent a lot of effort addressing my opinions of the scientific aspects of GDD, and some on insurance coverage shortcomings. I have not really addresses the personal costs of GDD, yet these are extremely common and extremely painful. In many respects all issues t...

How do I know if I should continue with chelation?

This is one of the most common questions asked of me. Often times the patient quotes their 24 hr urine Gd amount, and is disappointed if it is still high post-chelation (for example higher than 10 mcg per 24 hrs). DTPA...

I have written a few blogs that discuss, in part, the presence of other heavy metals in urine. Everyone tested for Gd have at least 5 other heavy metals, and all of them have lead. So everyone has multiple heavy metals and lead- so at a minimum everyone has Lead storag...

This is a modernization and stream-lining of the stages of treatment for GDD:

Caveat Emptor (Buyer beware).

Many may be familiar with my concept of the Semelka trilogy, basically: if it is cheap enough, seems to make wisdom- or scientific-sense, and is very unlikely to make you worse, why not try it?  This also reflects that: I don't know, neithe...

Do you have GDD, MCSS, or both? MCSS is atleast as nebulous a condition (actually much more so) than GDD, and I believe it is probably a not so dissimilar concept of an immune system reaction to foreign antigens. Treatment is different so sorting them out is somewhat i...

My modern revision of Dante's Inferno was well received, so this is an appropriate time of the year, with the birth of Christ hard upon us- to revisit the subject of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Being familiar with the Bible, but by no means a scholar, ther...

I have been asked a few times recently about GDD in children. Here is my current thinking.

GDD is very rare in children primarily because the incitement of GDD in a person often requires that the immune system is mature enough to mount an aggressive response t...
