He also pointed out that the reason for the high-dosage cleanse - because the inevitable water discharge expells the metals before they can reabsorb in the digestive tract . (While bowel tolerance was "too slow" for this purpose, according to Jaffe).
I have studied human anatomy for 45+ years and this comment perplexes me.
The question I have is how does the heavy metals get into the digestive track??
Heavy metals that are consumed or absorbed into the body are generally held in the liver and then processed into the blood stream where they are then taken out to the cells of the body where they are then stored because they can not be used for any purpose. The exceptions being the essential elements that are used for conversions. When an agent comes along that allows the cells to release them they then become mobilized back into the returning blood which then finds it way back to the kidneys and the liver where they are placed back into the blood stream since in their elemental form they cannot be processed out. The kidneys and the liver are not 100% filters and some will be removed if they are attached to other elements that have a slight affinity for the heavy metal. But the amounts are so small that it is not of any benefit to the rest of the body. When heavy metals attach to a chelating compound they are locked to it and the liver recognizes these compounds as useless and expels them into the digestive tract for removal they also have no way to release them once they enter the out process. Speeding up the process doesn’t benefit it’s actions and only dehydrates the intestinal tract which absorbs waters from the blood thru an osmotic process to achieve mucosal homeostasis, This process does not allow the heavy metals to pass into the tract. So with this in mind I think you can see why I find problems with the purpose of cleansing without instilling a chelating agent prior to. Mobilizing alone does not assure expulsion!
