Is EDTA Safe?
By Dr. Michael W. Roth

Is Detoxing with Topical EDTA Safe?

EDTA vs. Inferior Chelation

  • Zeolite is pH sensitive (changes the toxic grabbing capacity, based on changes in pH);

  • Chlorella and other ‘green detox’ products already carry toxins, picked up from the air and water as they grew;

  • Bentonite Clay is usually contaminated.

  • DMSA and DMPS have serious side effects (, having caused:

    • DMPS: Auto-reactive T-cells, increases T-suppressor cells, liver toxicity, kidney damage, stomach ulcers.

    • DMSA: Bone marrow suppression, increases in tumor necrosis factor, liver toxicity, nausea, diarrhea, anorexia, fatigue, flatulence.

  •    Using EDTA in a transdermal cream allows a safe, slower method of gradual detox that does not have the negative effects that more aggressive forms of detoxification can carry such as intravenous use.  

According to Dr. Garry Gordon, considered “The Father of Modern Detox”, EDTA is essentially four molecules of vinegar, and chelation is a natural process. EDTA is a man-made synthetic amino acid, which [captures] the lead, mercury, cadmium, or other metal—so that it is finally able to exit the body with a higher efficiency. Every human being on Earth today is breathing in tremendous amounts of lead, mercury, and cadmium.

Thousands of clients have been using EZDtox with no adverse effects reported other than a few minor skin irritations.

It is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing, or for children under the age of 4 years. If you are on blood thinners, please check with your doctor before using.

Since EDTA is not mineral specific, it is recommended to take a quality mineral supplement at least an hour away from EDTA application.
