2019 Chelation Conference in Malaysia.

The 2nd Malaysian Conference on Clinical Metal Toxicology and Antidotes was held February 22-24, 2019, at the Flamingo Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. In attendance were 79 mostly Malay physicians, but also doctors from India, Indonesia, and Thailand.

The conference was organized by Prof. Hj Mohd Ebrahim Sulaiman, MD; and when I was asked to participate in the conference as a keynote speaker, I hesitated. Long flights and time changes are becoming more of a barrier these days, and Malaysia is about 12 hours of flight time away from Germany where I now live and work.

I had met Dr. Sulaiman at the 2006 Malaysian conference. Thereafter, Dr. Sulaiman invited me to visit his clinic and was most courteous in creating a positive dialogue. His sharp mind combined with kindness, his scientific approach to chelation therapy and other methods such as the hyperbaric oxygen treatment made a lasting impression.

Like all the pioneers of chelation therapy, Dr. Sulaiman is getting on in age, but he is still active and his approach to medicine has not changed. He teaches chelation therapy as it applies to chronic metal toxicology and his disciples greatly respect him.

In his lectures, Dr. Sulaiman reflected on protocols and the need to follow them. It was refreshing to hear him stress NaMgEDTA for the treatment of vascular disease. He provided detailed instructions on the preparation and application of antidotes and instructed about the need for proper diagnostics. Among the many interesting lectures was the talk by Professor Dr. Suresh Kumar of the University of Malaysia, concerning toxic parasites and cancer. Dr. Zawawi Bin Abdullah's lecture focused on cadmium poisoning, and Dr. Nor'ashikin Binti Othman, head of the drug and research unit and clinical toxicology unit of the department of pathology, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, instructed about mandatory laboratory testing in clinical toxicology. Natural methods of detoxification were presented by Dr. Paramijt Kaur.

Government officials attended my lectures on diagnosing acute versus chronic metal (over) exposure, including gadolinium, a sign that clinical toxicology has received official recognition in Malaysia, which is largely due to the efforts and teachings of Prof. Ebrahim Sulaiman.
