Heavy Metal Detox

We are very excited to now offer a heavy metal detox in our office.  A simple urine test is performed in office to determine whether you have heavy metal poisoning, and how severe it is.  We will also test to see how well your body is able to detoxify, and whether its detoxification abilities have been exhausted.
Possible Symptoms of Metal Exposure

How Are We Exposed?

In today’s world, it is impossible to not be exposed to heavy metals.  We may ingest it through our food, vaccinations (the flu shot is a big culprit!), mercury fillings, drinking water, electronic equipment, medications, and cigarettes.

Which Metals Do We Test For?

  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Cadmium
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Nickel

We also test your body to see how well it can detoxify.

Do I Have To Change The Way I Eat?

No.  You will be drinking drops of liquid in specified amounts that is completely tasteless.  The only thing we ask you to change is to consume at least 6-8 glasses of water per day.

 

How Does It Work?

We start with an inexpensive urine analysis in the office.  This will tell us whether you suffer from heave metal toxicity, and how severe it is.  After you receive your test results, you can then decide whether you want to do the detox.  The negatively charged chelation agent will pull heavy metals from your dense fatty tissue (such as the brain and spinal cord) and eliminate the heavy metals through various ways, such as the kidneys and skin.  We will periodically test your urine to track your progress.
