Detoxamin is taken every other night, and works gently while you sleep. Take right before bedtime. For more severe cases, you may take Detoxamin daily. For best results we recommend using 3 jars of Detoxamin (90 Detoxamin Suppositories) over 180 days (6 months).
Take vitamin B6 everyday (100 mg daily). And take all other supplementation on the off days (the off days are when you're not taking Detoxamin), providing less competition between the removal of toxins and the replacement of the essentials.
The recommended supplements to use are, NT Factor® Lipids Powder and NT Factor® Youthful Energy (in stock). Plus Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin D, Vitamin B6, quality high dose Multi-vitamin, mineral, trace mineral (Iron-free), and Systemic enzymes. Also recommended is Cod Liver Oil.
Chelation comes from the Greek word "claw," meaning "to grab," which is exactly what EDTA does. When a molecule of EDTA travels through the bloodstream and gets near a toxic metal such as lead or mercury, it grabs the destructive particle and binds tightly with it, pulling it out of the membrane or body tissue it was embedded in.
Since EDTA is an artificial amino acid, and since the body regards it as a foreign substance, the body eliminates the entire particle-the heavy particle coated with EDTA. The body can't tell that underneath the coating is some harmful material that it might be willing to keep even though it is harmful. Ultimately, both the EDTA and the toxic substance are delivered to the kidneys, which excrete them in the urine.
When a free radical comes in contact with the inner lining of your arteries, microscopic injuries result. This process is called lipid peroxidation (the process that causes fats to become rancid) and is recognized as one of the underlying causes of atherosclerosis. Eventually the build-up of fat, cholesterol, toxic metals and other substances at the site of injury narrows the arteries. The key is to neutralize free radicals before they damage your arteries.
Detoxamin has a time-release mechanism that allows the EDTA to absorb through the colon wall while you sleep. Almost all the blood from the rectum makes its way to the superior hemorrhoidal veins, a tributary of the portal system, so that absorption through the rectal wall carries the EDTA in Detoxamin to the portal vein. The lower and middle hemorrhoidal veins bypass the liver-and do not undergo first pass metabolism. This means that the EDTA in Detoxamin goes directly to the organs of your body without being filtered through the liver first. Because of this, the EDTA contained in Detoxamin is very productive.
Detoxamin offers many advantages both over the expensive intravenous method of EDTA chelation. With the use of needles via the intravenous method, and risk of AIDS and other communicable blood-borne diseases, Detoxamin is becoming the logical choice over I.V. EDTA chelation and the poorly absorbed oral EDTA. The rectum has a more neutral pH and is not as acidic as the stomach, which makes this area much better for EDTA absorption because it is not buffered and has a neutral pH, unlike the stomach. It also has very little enzymatic activity, thus enzymatic degradation does not occur.
Direct EDTA Delivery
Detoxamin also introduces EDTA directly into the systemic circulation, efficiently bypassing the portal circulation and the liver metabolism on the first pass. Rectal absorption may also occur through the lymphatic system and, in some cases, largely through the blood via the vena cava.
Both EDTA and Glutathione are poorly absorbed when taken orally. But now, with this powerful formula, you can get all the powerful benefits of both EDTA and Glutathione at the highest level. You see, bio-availability is the key to performance.
Intracellular Energy Production - Mitochondria are the cell’s fuel energy source and consume more molecular oxygen than other organelles within the cytosol. This creates Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) which generate more oxidative stress. This is a reason why mitochondria are a main target for GSH to neutralise ROS and reduce oxidative stress. Entry and replenishment of GSH into the mitochondria is a critical step in maintaining intracellular health
Antioxidant –the body’s master antioxidant, our bodies depend on it for the removal of toxins. Other antioxidants in our body depend on it to function properly.
Detoxification – detoxifies a large number of pollutants by binding to carcinogens, heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides and radiation by forming a soluble compound with the toxin that can then be excreted through the urine or bile.
Immune System – is at the heart of all immune function. Healthy growth and activity of immune cells depends on the availability of GSH. The protective activity of GSH is two-fold – it enhances the activity of immune cells and also functions as an antioxidant within them. Raising and maintaining your levels can help minimize the risk of diseases.
Increased Energy – Our energy levels are a result of many factors – everything from the biochemical reactions taking place within our cells, to muscle function and even your sense of well-being. Glutathione enables the mitochondria of a cell to remain fully charged, enhancing muscle strength and endurance. Clinical trials have shown that lowering Glutathione in the mitochondria results in cell death.
Repair – Our body is constantly under attack from free radicals, some from external sources and some generated in our own body. Free radicals attack the nearest stable molecule, “stealing” its electron. A molecule that loses an electron then becomes a free radical itself and attacks the next nearest stable molecule, this begins a chain reaction. Once the reaction is started it can cascade through hundreds of molecules. Glutathione performs a vital role in repairing the damaged DNA by replacing the missing electron. Normal to elevated Glutathione keeps the repair of our cells at a maximum and reduces the number of cell mutations that would occur otherwise.
Glutathione is regarded as a very valuable cell protector, via its direct effects on the quenching of reactive hydroxyl free radicals, other oxygen-derived free radicals and DNA damaging oxidative stressors and other biomolecules.
Glutathione is the primary defender of the eye tissues and the skin against radiation related damage and supplies the key biochemical foundations for cytochrome P450 enzymatically derived detoxification in the liver, kidneys, lungs, intestinal epithelia and other organs. Whilst it is employed by many rate limiting biochemical steps in the body our understanding of its role in the immune system management of cytokine driven inflammation is only just evolving. This represents an area of increasing research as the role of the mucosal immune system becomes attributed to persistent Para Inflammation and the degenerative conditions associated with it.

Detoxamin removes most harmful metal toxins, safely and effectively. Detoxamin is taken at night prior to bedtime, each Detoxamin suppository contains Calcium-disodium EDTA, and is made in a proprietary base, (melts on body contact), which is very therapeutic for the rectal mucosa and the colon wall.
According to Dr. Bruce Halstead MD, Scientific Advisor to Detoxamin, "The Ca-sodium form is able to bond (chelate) effectively because it does not lower the blood pH to a level that would prohibit the bonding action. The Ca added to the salt is important in this MOA (mode of administration) as it buffers the acidic quality of the active ingredient keeping the suppository from being abrasive to the mucous membrane of the rectum area. Ca-disodium EDTA has both a scientific justification for therapeutic effectiveness as well as a clinical history of effectiveness.
Detoxamin, because most people just don't have the time or money for IV chelation. They're not only 70% less than I.V. chelation, but they're as effective too.
Published medical studies prove Detoxamin EDTA Suppositories delivers approximately 40 percent of what an IV dose offers, and is the most medically similar to the traditional IV chelation therapy in the world.
Detoxamin: An Easier Way To Remove The Metals. What was once a time- consuming, prescriptive treatment costing thousands of dollars is now available to you in the privacy of your own home. Detoxamin EDTA suppositories are the only product of it's kind proven in published research.
You simply take Detoxamin chelation supplements at night before sleep. And nighttime detoxification is the most efficient, since that's when the oxidative stress load on the body is at its minimum, and the immune system's healing mechanisms are working at maximum.
Where intravenous chelation takes hours of sitting in one spot (a real infringement on a person’s time), you use Detoxamin suppositories in the convenience and privacy of your own home. It eliminates painful, inconvenient, expensive, and very time consuming doctor visits and heavy metal detox symptoms associated with I.V.
The body has need for approximately 70 friendly trace element heavy metals, but there are another 12 poisonous heavy metals, such as Lead, Mercury, Aluminum, Arsenic, Cadmium, Nickel, etc., that act as poisonous interference to the enzyme systems and metabolism of the body.
Metals that are ALWAYS toxic and should never be ingested include the following: mercury, antimony, arsenic, beryllium, bismuth, cadmium, copper, lead, nickel, platinum, thallium, tungsten, uranium, and aluminum
Ca-EDTA is more attracted to some elements than others. This is a list of what EDTA is attracted to, in order of highest attraction to lower. This list was comprised by research published by Saul Green and Wallace Sampson in 2002. From studies, we also know EDTA has an affinity for Arsenic and Uranium, though we do not know where they fall in the line of affinity.

Detoxamin Lifetime Maintenance
Detoxamin is a product for life. Your bones remain toxic for life-this is a fact. We highly recommend that you continue the therapy, as you will get exposed to harmful toxins continually. Unfortunately your bones are toxic for life and the toxins do get re-introduced into the bloodstream over time. Plus, our bone lead levels are 1000 times higher than those prior to the Industrial Age. Therefore, once you complete the first part of the therapy it is recommended to maintain your health with our monthly maintenance package. Our recommendation is to use 3-6 suppositories every month-you will receive the equivalent of approximately 2 IV EDTA chelation treatments. Using the suppositories on consecutive nights will give you consistent chelation. We are continually ingesting toxins and heavy metals on a continuing basis and Detoxamin is extremely safe, we feel that the maintenance protocol could be carried out over your lifetime.

In an Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved study conducted at Tustin Longevity Center, thirty men between the ages of 48 to 74 exhibiting conditions of prostatitis, benign prostate hyperplasia, and prostate calcifications were enrolled in a 90-day clinical study. The interim trial examined the effects of a combination treatment of Detoxamin at 750mg given four times per week, Health Genesis vitamin/mineral complex given daily, one daily Natren's Healthy Trinity probiotic oil matrix capsule and tetracycline at 500mg given daily.
The initial 90-day observations revealed statistically significant Quality of Life (QOL) improvement in reducing the symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia, with overall improvement in urinary conditions such as weak urinary stream, incomplete emptying of the bladder and strain upon urination. Results also showed a reduction of the frequency, intermittency and number of times the participants got up at night to urinate (nocturia). Erectile function was also improved in 27 out of 30 patients.
Toxic heavy metals were laboratory analyzed in packed red blood cells; the metals that showed statistically significant reductions were lead, cadmium and arsenic. Of the heavy metals analyzed in fecal samples, cadmium showed a significant decrease.
Blood chemistry panels were also analyzed in which high density lipids (HDL), the good cholesterol levels increased significantly over pre-treatment levels. The cholesterol to HDL ratios, low density lipids (LDL, bad cholesterol) and plaque 2 (LPPLA2), a marker that detects cardiovascular plaque significantly decreased in the majority of participants.
The researchers conducting this study are encouraged with the response to the treatment protocol for improving symptomology, removal of major toxic heavy metals and improving important cardiovascular markers with the men who are affected with debilitating prostate conditions. This study has been extended for an additional 90 days with some modifications of the protocol.
"With over seven years of medical chelation experience, I observed other toxic heavy metals such as aluminum, nickel, tungsten, uranium and beryllium and others being either decreased or excreted to large extents in my patients utilizing Detoxamin. This is extremely important for all people of all ages because of the abundance of continual toxic environmental exposure we all encounter each and every day. I am so confident of need for the removal of these metals with Detoxamin that I have chosen to devote my entire practice to instate the use of these suppositories in place of IV chelation with almost all my present and future patients. Detoxamin's gentle, safe and effective ability to remove these oxidatively damaging metals from our tissues is one of the single, most important things we can do to improve our health. I also incorporate and highly recommend the addition of Repairacell or Vital Cellular Nutrition with NT Factor to repair, rebuild and revitalized cells and tissues of the body in combination with Detoxamin for not only the majority of medical conditions but also as a preventive means to protect us against damaging toxins, improvement in health and increased quality of life as we age."

Detoxamin suppositories remain solid below 76°F, so keep them in a cool place to prevent melting. If necessary, any broken or bubbled suppositories can be melted and reformed in the fridge.
If soft, we suggest placing the Detoxamin suppository in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes before use, to firm up the suppository before usage. Use the restroom prior to using, and be sure your hands are clean.
To open the suppository, separate one shell from the rest, then gently peel the flat plastic tabs apart to reveal the suppository inside the shell.
