Could you benefit from IV Chelation Therapy? Chronic fatigue and joint pain are some of the most common symptoms our patients experience. If it’s not some nasty little bug or virus at the root cause of your symptoms, and it’s not hormone- related, it just may be heavy metal toxicity. Most importantly, it’s not something common anyone talks about either! Consequently, it may take many years and lots of money to determine the root cause of your symptoms. Heavy metals are common and can be found in many places in our environment.
The Most Common Sources of Heavy Metals
- Mercury (amalgam) fillings in your mouth
- Inoculations with traces of heavy metal preservatives
- Farm-raised fish
- Consuming non-organic products
- Post chemo and radiation treatments
- MRI contrast fluid
So what happens when these heavy metals accumulate in the body? As a result, they can wreck havoc on your brain function, central nervous system, cardiovascular, immune and skeletal systems.These are some of the most important systems in your body!
The Most Common Symptoms of Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Chronic fatigue
- Brain fog
- Trouble learning and remembering things
- Autoimmune diseases
- Neurological disorders and cognitive decline
- Joint or muscle pain
- Mood changes that include depression and anxiety
In addition, the most common heavy metals are mercury, lead, arsenic, copper, and aluminum. There is also a rise in gadolinium toxicity from gadolinium-based contrast fluid found in MRI scans.
IV Chelation Therapy
However, IV Chelation therapy, which is FDA approved, may be the safest way to remove heavy metals from your body. It is very important to go to a well-trained practitioner who understands how chelation therapy actually works. IV Chelation therapy involves EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), which is administered into your bloodstream via IV (intravenous) therapy. Once EDTA is bound to the heavy metal toxins in your body, the EDTA helps to detoxify these metals by removing them out of your body through your urine. Because this process can also cause mineral deficiencies, it is important to get IV Mineral Repletion Therapy in between treatments to counteract any lost minerals. Also, make sure your treatment plan includes the use of binders! Binders help to bind heavy metals.
At the moment, IV Chelation therapy is not currently covered by most insurance plans and it may take anywhere between ten to thirty treatments for best results. Above all, IV Chelation Therapy has to be done slowly to make sure that heavy metals are not released too quickly that they can cause more damage to your body. Interested in learning more?
