Heavy metals are naturally occurring substances that have a heavy atomic weight. Examples include:
Due to the widespread use of these metals in a number of industries, from agricultural to medical, your risk of exposure is high. In fact, your dental fillings may be contributing to high levels of mercury in your body. Unfortunately, your body isn’t able to break down these heavy metals, and they may build up to toxic levels in your body and affect your health.
Overexposure to heavy metals can affect all of your body systems, including your cardiovascular, nervous, and gastrointestinal.
Signs and symptoms that may indicate heavy-metal toxicity include:
You may not always experience symptoms when the heavy-metal levels in your body are elevated, and this may affect or delay proper treatment. During your examination at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine, your specialist conducts a thorough examination to assess your exposure and the levels of these metals in your blood.
The team at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine offers chelation therapy with ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) for heavy-metal detoxification. This treatment binds with the heavy metals in your blood and helps your body flush them out to restore health.
Heavy-metal detoxification offers many health benefits, including:
Heavy-metal detoxification also improves your health and may help protect you from developing chronic diseases like chronic fatigue, diabetic foot ulcers, and memory and mood disorders.
During your heavy-metal detoxification treatment at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine, you sit in a reclined position so you can relax during your detox. An intravenous needle is placed in your arm, and the EDTA is slowly infused into your body. The entire session takes anywhere from one and a half to three hours.
To get the best results, the specialists at The Golden Center for Integrative Medicine recommend 30 detoxification sessions given several times a week.
