Quite clearly, it is beyond the means of most people to compile a collection of nutrients which would meet these precise requirements. The particular formula given above is available in the USA from health stores. Anyone trying to put together an approximation of this suggested pattern could ask for assistance from a health store assistant who would doubtless with a little effort, be able to combine a number of standard formulations and individual items towards this end.

It must be said that the combination put together by Dr Donsbach seems heroic in its complexity and although he explains precisely why each item is included, there remains a faint suggestion of 'shot­gun' supplementation in which the more things thrown together the greater the chance that something might do some good. The author provides this formulation as a matter of accuracy rather than as a strongly recommended course. My preference would be for something along the lines of Dr Rinse's formulation or the using of individual nutrient supplementation as outlined in Chapter 8.

Before we examine the use of oral EDTA, a reminder is in order at this point of the value of exercise as a chelation generating method. It is clear from Nathan Pritikin's work (Pritikin, 1980) that a combination of diet and exercise can do as much as chelation therapy in normalizing circulatory dysfunction; and remember that without attention to these areas chelation therapy will produce results which will not be sustained.
