Since metals like zinc, copper cobalt have a tendency to bind to non-specific sites, imidazole chelation may become useful.
The treatment for most heavy metal poisoning is chelation therapy.
Chelation therapy is effective in treating lead, mercury, and arsenic poisoning, but it is not useful in treating cadmium poisoning.
The chelation process can only halt further effects of the poisoning; it cannot reverse neurological damage already sustained.
Dietary supplements, including garlic, fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids), L-arginine, soy, coenzyme Q10, phytosterols, and chelation therapy may be beneficial, but the exact nature of their effects on blood pressure is unknown.
