This is your resource center. Here you will find Quicksilver Scientific’s studies, protocol booklets, catalogs, current price list, product sheets, brochures and other marketing materials, frequently asked questions and customer service support.
What is the relevance of genetics to using the protocol?
Genetic SNPs are important in tuning protocols. Specifically, MTHFR homozygotes may need specific B vitamins. Most of the clients we work with have multiple heterozygous and homozygous mutations and thus the protocols evolved around these conditions.
When do I add QS Liposomal EDTA to the QS DetoxQube protocol?
This is added in somewhere within the first 3 months, depending on how you feel. The dose is 1 tsp/day. This dose can be reduced and worked up to, to mitigate detox symptoms.
Disodium EDTA vs. Calcium EDTA
Disodium EDTA is a better chelator. The rationale for CaNa2EDTA is that you can disturb calcium balance during an IV push if you use disodium EDTA. The liposomal EDTA is absorbed more slowly and persists longer and thus does not create an acute disturbance of calcium homeostasis. Additionally, when using QS’s liposomal EDTA, you are taking smaller more regular doses (210mg per day typically) so there is no shock to the system as in a push.
IMD vs. Chlorella? Can I use chlorella and IMD together?
IMD has higher thiol functionality and therefore is stronger. Chlorella has far fewer binding sites and thus is milder; however, chorella has other kinds of binding sites (cation exchange and anion exchange) that make it a good and safe complement to IMD. IMD has more of a detox stimulating effect whereas chlorella is more passive, and as such some practitioners use IMD once per day and chlorella at two other times in the day. Once they move up in dose, they go to IMD 2X per day and Chlorella once and then finally up to IMD 3X/day, with or without chlorel
My patient has a sunflower sensitivity. Is this a concern?
It is typically the proteins people react to in sunflowers. Phospholipids are far removed from the proteins, so it would be very uncommon for someone to react to the phospholipids. Our product has gone through enough purification processes that it would be very unlikely for an allergic reaction to occur.
Is it necessary or possible to eliminate Mercury from body-tissue outside the brain before using supplements like Lipoic Acid to eliminate Mercury from inside the brain?
If your GABA processes are working fine, then there is no reason to take GABA. If you are caught in a cycle of glutamate dominance then external GABA supplementation can calm the system and allow you to break that cycle. For example, glutamate dominance causes inflammatory processes that shut down detoxification and create a lot of anxiety, yet toxicity can be the cause of the glutamate dominance and lock you in that cycle; or infectious processes can cause glutamate dominance and cause you to retain toxins which compounds the problems from the infections. To shut off your own GABA system it would take an extensive amount of GABA supplementation. It could be done, but it is not an imminent danger from its use at the levels we recommend: 100-500mg 1-3X per day.
