Our bodies are constantly being exposed to mercury and other heavy metals from our external environment. Repeated exposure to these toxins can have an accumulative effect and can build up to toxic levels in our bodies, tissues, and cells. This can lead to a variety of diseases including those with unexplained immune, endocrine and neurological symptoms.
Do You Have Mercury In Your System?
If you have mercury fillings, you’re being exposed to mercury vapours that exceed the maximum allowable limit for the air we breathe by 1,000 times (recommended by Environmental Protection Agency) .
Some dentists may dismiss that as nonsense, but those that do are likely not familiar with the recent demonstration by the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT)
Chelation of Mercury & Other Heavy Metals
Traditional chelation consists of administering a chelating agent which may include one of the following: EDTA, DMSA, or DMPS.
However, there are alternative chelation treatments that utilize homeopathic medicines that can be just as effective and more specific to how and what your individual body will respond to.
We are able to utilize various testing methods: applied kinesiology, saliva testing, and heavy metal provocation testing to create an individual heavy metal detoxification program that is right for you.
Chelation has also been used for cardiovascular health for over 50 years treating angina, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis and other cardiovascular problems, by improving the circulation and decreasing cardiovascular risk.
Because of chelation’s benefit to improving circulation and helping with decreasing free radical damage to the body, a large variety of symptoms have been reported to improve following chelation therapy, even symptoms not directly caused by circulatory disease.
While there is no scientific evidence that chelation is a cure for these diseases, symptoms of arthritis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, psoriasis, high blood pressure, and scleroderma have all been reported to improve with chelation therapy.
Patients generally feel younger and more energetic following therapy, even when taken for purely preventive reasons. In fact, chelation therapy is more desirable for prevention that it is for established disease. Preventive medicine is always preferable to late stage crisis intervention.
