E.Blaurock-Busch PhD is research director of Micro Trace Minerals Analytical Laboratory Germany and Trace Mineral International Laboratory of Boulder, Colorado and was Assistant Laboratory Director at King James Medical Laboratory, Cleveland, OH. Her specialty is metal toxicology and human nutrition.
She is a founding member and co-chairman of the International Association of Trace Element Research and Cancer, and organizer of the first East-West World Congress on Trace Element and Cancer, held in Beijing, China in 1996. As scientific advisor to the International Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology (IBCMT) she lectured worldwide at medical meetings and universities. As scientific advisor to the German Medical Association for Clinical Metal Toxicology (Deutsche Ärztegesellschaft für Klinische Metalltoxilogie – KMT), she continues to be involved in teaching toxicology to German physicians.
She is instrumental in environmental and laboratory research projects in metal toxicology, including epidemiological studies that evaluated the toxic burden of people of various countries, including India and Saudi Arabia. In 2005, she received the IBCMT (International Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology) Award for Outstanding Service.
She was a guest speaker at radio and TV shows in the US, Germany and elsewhere.
She published several books in German and English at reputable publishers including Prentice Hall (later Simon and Schuster) and Hugendubel. Her many articles were published in various languages in medical and lay journals around the world.
She is a member of the European Academy for Environmental Medicine and the British Society for Ecological Medicine. She continues independent studies at Exeter College, Oxford University, UK.

This is a great source of valuable scientific information on toxic metals and antidotes from a world expert in the subject. I enjoyed reading it and practicing its guidance. It is easy to read, understand and apply

Books about antidotes generally concern themselves with the diagnosis and treatment of acute intoxications, while books about chelation therapy are usually about EDTA chelation therapy for the treatment of heart disease and stroke.
This book combines both. It defines acute and chronic intoxication, explains which diagnostic tests are useful and which treatment are best used for either case, the immediate or the low grade, long term exposure. The book contains diagnostic information about blood, urine and provocation tests and provides chelation treatment recommendations. It would be explains the pharmacological and clinical effects of the most common chelating agents in use, and provides treatment protocols. Updated research information on potentially toxic metals is provided. I learned which chelating agent is best used for which metal. It also covers the biochemical role and potential toxicity of essential trace elements such as Selenium and Zinc.
This book is not only for experienced chelationists it is also best suitable for beginners.
It's one book I''ve learned a lot, so I would recommend this book.

Review by Dr. Peter VanderSchaar, past president of IBCMT (International Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology)and author of the IBCMT Textbook for Clinical Metal Toxicology, ed. 2011)www.ibcmt.com
This book, written by my close friend Eleonore Blaurock and co-combatant against ignorance, is one of the two best comprehensive lectures on toxic metals. It is required reading for anyone with a more profound interest in what these metals may do to our health, how to diagnose them and how they can be eliminated by expert handling of their antidotes. It reflects the current knowledge of these ubiquitous toxic metals, which are an increasing threat to our health.
