Sorry I could not remember the details of your history. Your challenges with treatment are now making a ton of sense to me. As for IV Chelation the end result could be similar.... very little dumping of metals if there are untreated biofilms hanging onto them.
Have you looked extensively at methylation/detox, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, KPU? The reason I ask is I could provide you with several different protocols for biofilm treatments (much more aggressive than what is mentioned in your post) but if he is not detoxing properly and pathways are not supported all 'H*** could break loose causing him to worsen and deplete him further. As you may know heavy metals will kick up yeast/fungus and cause an inflammatory response. I am wondering if your prior attempts at chelation caused a yeast issue? Have you run a comprehensive stool analysis recently?
Can your LLMD provide glutatione, HD Vitamin C, Amino Acids or Vitamin IVs? I think providing him with that type of support in advance would give him some relief and prepare him for the BIG BATTLE... heavy metals/biofilms.
We have also found Babesia to be one of the most resilient infections and it has to be hit very hard with both herbals and very strong anti-malarials. At a minimum, it can take two years to treat.
Edit: Ammonia Levels can be tied to high levels of Candida
"One of Candida’s by products is ammonia, an alkaline gas that forms when the Candida Albicans yeast ferments sugar in your intestine. Ammonia increases the alkalinity of your digestive tract, and has even been found to promote the growth of other yeasts"
