Is HMD™ expensive?
The simple answer is “no”, it is actually
one of the cheapest natural heavy metal chelator in the market, even
though it has undergone research that cost in excess of $1
million. We believe that HMD™ should be amenable to all people
all over the globe and can be taken like a food supplement over
prolonged periods of time without costing more that the daily
cost of an ice-cream! Comparing other natural chelators on the
market, a 4 oz bottle of HMD™ lasting one month sells for $60
or the equivalent currency, while a month's equivalent of NDF
sells for $79.95 for a 1 oz. bottle, Metal-Free is $129.00 and
Detoxamin suppositories are $269 for a months supply.

Why does the patient need to take 40
drops at breakfast, 50 drops at lunchtime and 60 drops at
dinner? Why not take the same dosage throughout the day?
During the research trials it was found
that HMD™ has a dose-dependent
relationship. What that means is
that it will eliminate certain metals at 40 drops, others at 50
drops and others at 60 drops. So, in order to get the full
benefit of eliminating all metals in a 24-hour period, the
dosage needed to be rotated
between 40 and 60 drops at different
times of the day. This may actually be an advantage as the liver
and kidneys that have to detoxify these metals will be less
How does HMD™ compare to other drug chelators?
We don’t really know as research in this
field has not been conducted to compare. We believe, however,
that HMD™ may not eliminate the same degree of metals as these
drug chelators, but it certainly does remove considerable
amounts of most metals such as arsenic, antimony, aluminium,
cadmium, lead, mercury, thallium, uranium and others.
If the blood, urine and feces tests show
that the person is suffering from an acute toxicity of toxic
metals where the levels are extremely high, then it would be
wiser to use a strong drug chelator in order to reduce the
levels quickly. It is possible, however, to combine the HMD™ with
these drug chelators in order to give an element of protection
to the liver and kidneys, the red blood cells, the immune system
and other body organs. This has been demonstrated in other
research studies that have been conducted on two of the natural
ingredients of HMD™, namely Cilantro (Corriandrum sativum) and
the Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF).
14. Does HMD™ chelate iron and copper?
In the research trials we did not find this
to be the case, even though in some of the people that worked in
the metal foundry who had extremely high levels of copper and
iron, which were part of the by-products of the smelting
process, there were considerable amounts of copper and iron
eliminated in the post-urine and feces samples compared to the
pre-samples. It may be that the HMD™ is acting as an adaptagen
and balancing the body’s essential minerals according to need.
be taken PREVENTATIVELY even though there are no overt symptoms?
Absolutely, and it
is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as it would be true to say that everyone
living on this planet is affected by heavy metals in some way or
other. It's in the air we breath, the water we drink, the food
we eat such as fish, in our teeth (amalgams), in vaccinations (thimerosol
and aluminium) given to our young ones, mother's milk, in
various household furniture and bedding that we use every day,
This is one
excellent reason why it is important to take a heavy metal
chelator that can eliminate these heavy metals that are the
underlying cause of many chronic diseases. It would be
possible to take a variety of "drug" chelators that
must be given by a medical doctor, but this would mean expensive
visits to the doctor and the possibility of having adverse
side-effects as these drugs are generally quite aggressive and
all have known side effects. It is much wiser to take a
"gentle chelator" such as HMD™ that has been proven
to eliminate metals without any side effects. Use it daily for a
few months as a preventative; it is a wise health insurance and
investment that will keep your health optimised and protect you
from all sorts of chronic, degenerative diseases.
16. Does HMD™ have a Certificate Of Analysis
for microbes etc?
Yes, there are
Certificate of Analyses of all the raw materials used. Indeed,
one of the microbial tests showed that there were high numbers
of Lactobacillus colonies, a very beneficial bacterium present
in the HMD™, probably being maintained by the rich
present in the HMD™.
manufacturers GMP certified?
the storage and shelf life of HMD™?
It has been
tested now for 24 months and the product is still intact and
active. It is
predicted that the shelf life should be in excess of 4-5 years,
as is the case with most herbal remedies.
should NOT take HMD™?
and possibly epileptics, as well as people who have just had a major operation. However, these people should always seek the
advice of their health practitioner who would have the history
of the patient and can therefore make more bespoke decisions as
opposed to general guidelines.
the "healing crisis" when taking HMD™?
As when taking
any type of heavy metal chelator, or undergoing a detoxification
protocol to clean the body and organs, it is possible that
the patient will have certain "detox" symptoms such as
headaches, dizziness, feelings of malaise,
tiredness, “brain fog”, difficulty concentrating, aches and
pains in muscles and joints. All these symptoms are transitory
and usually do not last more than about 12 hours – they are
all due to heavy metals and toxins being released from the
tissues and organs and eliminated from the body. It is important to drink at least 10 glasses of mineral water while taking the HMD™ to help
flush the metals out of the body, mainly through the kidneys.
Taking DRAINAGE REMEDIES would also be wise as these help
"open-up" and make more efficient the detoxification
pathways of the liver and kidneys. Obviously if
symptoms persist for days then you should consult your health
during the hundreds of people that took part in the HMD™
trials, no major side effects were recorded, apart from
two people that complained of a minor, transitory headache.
Kidney, heart, liver and electrolyte blood tests showed that
there were no pathological parameters during the provocation phase.
Rate Variability Testing (HRV), a measure of the functioning of
all the physiological systems of the body, showed a significant
increase in 40% of the people tested in only 48 hours.
the mechanism involved in the heavy metal removal?
empirical research has not yet been undertaken to determine the
exact mode of action of HMD™. However, based on research of
similar products such as Chlorella Growth Factor, which is a
neuropeptide, it is possible that the peptides in HMD™ bind to
several receptor sites on the metal molecule creating a strong
irreversible bond with little chance of competition from other
competitor molecules - this means less reabsorption of the metal
by the body.
Peptides really stick to metals
with an order of magnitude far greater than their synthetic
chelating counterparts. This means that the metals are more
likely to be eliminated by the body as opposed to being
The research that has been
conducted on HMD™ to date has clearly shown that it has a natural
affinity for eliminating metals through the urinary tract, as
opposed to the biliary tract. This again will lessen the
likelihood of metals being reabsorbed in the gut.
It is freely absorbed by the oral
mucosa and it is postulated that it will also cross the
blood-brain barrier, but more work is required to confirm this
22. What’s the excretion
route for the eliminated heavy metals when using HMD™?
As mentioned above, the preferred
route of excretion is the urinary route. If we compare the top
table 2 showing the degree of elimination in the urine, with the
bottom table 3 for feces, we can clearly see that the preferred
route of elimination is the urinary route, which has obvious
advantages in preventing the possible re-absorption of metals
back into the body.
Group Placebo Group
mechanisms do heavy metals use in the body for causing diseases
and how do they damage the body?
such as mercury, cadmium, lead, and tin affect chemical synaptic
transmission in the brain and the peripheral and central nervous
system. They also have been found to disrupt brain and cellular
calcium levels that significantly affect many body functions:
levels in the brain affecting cognitive development and
degenerative CNS diseases
calcium-dependent neurotransmitter release which results in
depressed levels of serotonin, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine.
These are related to mood and motivation.
calcium-sodium ATP pump processes affecting cellular nutrition
and energy production processes.
levels in bones causing skeletal osteodystery.
have also been found to affect cellular transfer and levels of
other important minerals and nutrients that have significant
neurological and health effects such as magnesium, lithium,
zinc, iron, Vitamins B-6 & B1-12. Based on thousands of hair
tests, at least 20% of Americans have been shown to be deficient
in magnesium and lithium, with zinc deficiencies also common.
The resulting deficiency of such essential nutrients has been
shown to increase toxic metal neurological damage.
also found heavy metals to deplete glutathione and protein-bound
sulfhydryl (SH) groups, resulting in the inhibition of SH-containing
enzymes and the production of free radicals such as superoxide
ion, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroxyl radical. This has been
found to be a major factor in neurological and immune damage
caused by the heavy metals, including damage to mitochondria and
DNA, as well as chronic autoimmune conditions and diseases.
deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), impulsivity, and
inability to inhibit inappropriate responding have all been
associated with high lead levels. High aluminium levels are
related to encephalopathies and dementia. Some individuals have
been found to be more sensitive to toxic metals depending on
genetic sensitivity and past exposure to toxic substances.
Nickel exposure is common and nickel exposure has been found to
be significantly related to mortality in animal studies. Large
numbers of people affected by allergic conditions such as eczema
and psoriasis vulgaris and serious autoimmune conditions such as
lupus and CFS have also been found to have high levels of nickel
in their body.
system organs such as the pituitary gland, thyroid and
hypothalamus can be affected by heavy metals such as mercury
which can result in developmental delays such as learning and
behavioural disabilities, mental retardation and autism. Other
more subtle neurological effects can be seen such as small
decreases in IQ, attention span, and connections to delinquency
and violence, which can have potentially serious consequences
for society. The incidence of neurological conditions in
children such as autism has increased over 200% in the
in the last decade, with a 600% increase in the
- mercury has been found to be a factor in most of those tested.
Stearns and her team at the Northern Arizona University, USA,
are the first to show that uranium could be chemically genotoxic
and mutagenic through the formation of strand breaks and
covalent U–DNA adducts.
24. How do heavy metals cause Cardiovascular Disorders and
Central Nervous System problems?
Let's take CNS problems and neuropathology first. There are a
number of mechanistic bases for metal neurotoxicity such as:
* Disturbances of macromolecular synthesis and metabolism, such
as those of protein and nucleic acids
* Disturbance of Ca2+ homeostasis
* Oxidative injury
* Aberrant protein phosphorylation
* Some metals such as lead will affect the integrity of the
blood-brain-barrier (bbb) leading in changes to astrocyte
There is a wide variety of neuropathologies induced by metals:
* Generalized neuronal degeneration and necrosis in the cerebral
gray cerebellar cortex and brainstem nuclei
* Generalized encephalopathy of the CNS
* Edematous changes in the meninges, corpus collosum and brain
* Vascular and glial proliferations
Effects of Metals on the Hematopoietic System and Heme
The hematopoietic system is a complex organ comprising the bone
marrow, spleen, lymph nodes, and reticuloendothelial tissues, as
well as the three major groups of formed elements of blood
consisting of erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets.
Heavy metals can cause pancytopenia through impairment of bone
marrow function. Anemia, leucopenia, prominent basophilic
stippling and depression of bone marrow erythropoiesis are also
common. Several metals are also known to have direct hemolytic
All eight steps of the heme biosynthetic pathway are catalyzed
by enzymes which require functional sulfhydryl (-SH) groups for
optimal catalytic activity, either as part of the active site
configuration or to maintain their structural integrity. Since
most metals have a strong affinity for nucleophilic ligands,
especially thiols, each step of the heme biosynthetic pathway is
theoretically susceptible to direct inhibition as a result of
metal-mercaptide bond formation with functional SH groups.
25. What are the indications that HMD™ is actually working
once you have taken it?
This really depends on the degree of heavy metal toxicity as
well as other health problems that may be present. Generally,
one is expected to have an increase in well-being after taking
it for at least 3 months - more energy, stamina, better skin
condition, less headaches and better cognitive functioning. It
encourages the rejuvenation of the body's own DNA/RNA, thus you
will look and feel younger, typically beginning with visible
positive changes as it strengthens and improves hair, skin, and
Other factors that are not so subjective and require specialized
tests will show that the blood is much clearer with less cations
and oxidative stress, less microcytes and hemolysis as viewed
under darkfield microscopy. In addition, liver and kidney
function tests should improve and the levels of toxic metals in
the pre-post urine samples should decrease as measured by ICP-MS
An example of an English gentleman is worthy of note, but should
only be taken as anecdotal evidence at this point. He was
diagnosed with a malignant tumor of the spine as well as
significant levels of heavy metals, specifically mercury. He did
not want to take synthetic chelating agents such as DMSA and
EDTA as he felt that these may aggravate the tumour and where
also beyond his economic means at the time. He decided to stay
with the HMD™ and within 2 weeks was taking the full dosage of 40
drops in the morning, 50 drops at lunchtime and 60 drops in the
evening. After two months taking the HMD™ he phoned Dr. Georgiou
and wanted to share the fact that his latest MRI scan had shown
full tumor regression - it was gone! Dr. Georgiou congratulated
him on his efforts and perseverance of taking his other
supplements and sticking to his diet, to which he replied that
due to his economic problems he had not been taking anything but
the HMD™ for the last two months, and besides he felt so good on
Another example is of a mother with a young mercury-toxic child
who had tried many different chelators, including natural
chelators too. This resulted in the child having epileptic fits
and the treatment had to be stopped. She found the HMD™ website
and began conversing with Dr. Georgiou who instructed to try the
HMD™ starting with one drop per day and working up to the full
dosage SLOWLY. During the first few days the child was seen to
calm down and become much less hyperactive and irritable. After
a couple of weeks they had reached the maximum dosage with no
epileptic fits or other side effects - see TESTIMONIALS.
26. How long does it take for someone to see significant
Again, this really depends on the problem but generally one
should take the HMD™ for three to six months to really benefit
from the elimination of metals from the body. It would be true
to say that everyone has heavy metals in their bodies as they
are present all around us in our environment, in our food, our
water supplies, in our furniture, bedding, carpets etc., as well
as in vaccinations and our teeth. Therefore, HMD™ can
certainly be taken PREVENTATIVELY by everyone to really help
remove these metals GENTLY from the body without incurring
adverse side effects as you would take a multivitamin every day
to optimize your health.
27. Does heat, caffeinated drinks and drugs interfere with HMD™?
Heating HMD™ would probably denature the delicate neuropeptide
complexes that are part of the chlorella growth factor, so this
should be avoided. After opening the HMD™ it would be good to
store it in the refrigerator.
It may be a good idea to stop taking caffeine in coffee, tea,
cola drinks and chocolate for the time that one is taking HMD™.
Also mints, mint drinks and camphor-based products, as these are
antidotes to the homeopathic in the HMD™ which may adversely
affect its action. This is still a controversial subject in
homeopathy so this is best left to the practitioner to advise
accordingly. Dr. Georgiou believes that the HMD™ will still work
at chelating metals even when coffee and mints are taken, but it
may reduce its efficacy a little.
28. Would HMD™ work together with EDTA in providing minerals
for malnourished people who have difficulty absorbing nutrients
EDTA is known to remove essential minerals from the body along
with the heavy metals. This is why it is important for people
taking EDTA to also take concomitantly large quantities of
minerals and trace elements in order to replace those that are
In the case of HMD™ this is not the case, and will actually
provide useful minerals to the body, as the basic components of
the HMD™, such as the organic Coriander and the chlorella growth
factor, are rich in minerals and trace elements.
It is certainly possible to use EDTA together with the HMD™ but
it may also require minerals to be added to compensate for the
minerals removed by the EDTA. Certainly the advantage of using HMD™
with EDTA is that it acts as a hepato-protective agent, it
stimulates and builds the immune system, it improves cellular
efficiency and integrity and it helps to detoxify other
xenobiotics as well as encouraging the rejuvenation of the
body's own DNA/RNA.
additional supplements interact and decrease the effectiveness
Some supplements will actually increase the effectiveness -
these would include Vitamin C - maybe 1-2 grams every time you
take the HMD™ and making some Cilantrin using 1 cup fresh
Coriander leaves, a few walnuts, 1 clove garlic, 2 tablespoons
fresh lemon juice and 6 tablespoons olive oil in a
blender. Take a tablespoon of this a couple of times daily with
