Let's face it, our environment is toxic. We encounter toxic metals on a daily basis, and over time they accumulate and are stored in the tissues and fat cells.
This can cause problems with almost every system in the body, namely, issues with the nervous system, immune system, cardiovascular system, and hormone regulation. Potential troublesome metals include mercury, lead, aluminum, and arsenic.
The most common symptoms that suggest a high heavy metal burden are:
Chelation is a process by which toxic heavy metals can be removed from the blood. The chelator agent is chosen based on the offending metal.
We utilize intravenous Calcium EDTA to treat severe symptomatic lead toxicity.
This is a relatively safe therapy with many benefits. Studies on chelation therapy with EDTA specifically are showing improvements in heart disease in diabetics related to decreased plaque formation inside the arteries, decreased inflammation, and improved cholesterol control.
