No: Chelation has only proven to work for medically proven cases of heavy metal toxicity which is not the level your naturopathic doctor is talking about. That is why insurance does not cover it.

Second opinion : I would see a medical doctor (an md) for a second opinion. Almost every item you mentioned sounds very strange and unproven.
