What is Chelation and Heavy Metal Detoxification?
Chelation, pronounced (key-LAY-shun) therapy is commonly used to treat heavy metals in the body, such as mercury toxicity.
It involves the use of medications like EDTA or DMPS, which are agents that bind metals so they can be readily removed by the urinary system. Sometimes these agents are injected, taken orally, or used in suppository (rectal) form. Chelation also includes the use of nutrition, diet, and other practices to encourage the body to eliminate metals.

How do I know if I have heavy metal toxicity?
Talk to one of our doctors. A proper history, examination, and testing can help identify toxicity. Heavy metals in the body can be tested by blood, urine, or hair. We can help determine which method of testing might be best for you.
