Chelation refers to the process of binding and removing toxic metals from the bloodstream. As a powerful immuno-suppressant, mercury poisoning is particularly troublesome for persons with Cancer, Lyme disease, and various other conditions that impair the body’s ability to fight infection. Low levels of mercury are present in foods such as shellfish, rice, and high-fructose corn syrup, in addition to mercury-amalgam dental fillings and vaccines that contain thimerosal—an organomercury compound. While a healthy person is typically able to eliminate mercury via the body’s natural detox mechanisms, Dr. James Schaller, author of The Top 10 Lyme Disease Treatments (2007), suggests that “it is feasible that the Lyme disease spirochete sequesters mercury in the body as a tool for continued survival in the host environment.” In other words, when the Lyme infection detects the presence of another immuno-suppressant, it binds and retains that substance to further weaken the body’s immuno-defense systems. The objective of chelation is to break the bond and remove the toxin, thereby enabling the body to heal.
Chelation treatment begins with a provocation IV to confirm toxicity, followed by weekly chelation IVs for the first eight weeks, combined with remineralization to maintain adequate vitamin/mineral levels. Symptoms of toxicity include headaches, brain fog, depression and mood swings, fatigue, GI upset, chronic infections, and joint and muscle pain. If you or persons close to you have experienced such symptoms, call today to schedule a toxicity-specific consultation with our knowledgeable physicians.
