Heavy metals create havoc in every system they occupy and lower an organ's ability to function properly. Specific molecular compounds, delivered orally or intravenously, can bind to and remove heavy metals from the body. Once a patient has been tested for metal toxicity and has had kidney function assessed, our nursing staff delivers these treatment compounds, slowly and over time, to remove these harmful substances from the body.
Intravenous chelation is also a safe and effective way to help improve cardiovascular function in patients with atherosclerosis, congestive heart failure, intermittent claudication, shortness of breath, and weakness from diminished heart function. In our clinic, chelation is often combined with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to achieve the fastest results in improving cardiac function.
