Reclaim your health and rid your body of dangerous toxins.
Chelation is used to treat heavy metal toxicity — marked by your body’s accumulation of dangerous substances like lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium.
Heavy metal toxicity is a growing health hazard. And though it can cause significant symptoms, this diagnosis is often overlooked. If you’re not healthy and happy, it could be due to high toxicity from heavy metals.
You might be poisoned by heavy metals from:
- Industrial exposure
- Air or water pollution, especially in cities
- Improperly coated food containers
- Lead ingestion from paint or water fountains
As we age, heavy metals accumulate in our tissue. These metals spread to vital parts of your body: the brain, arteries, and gut. From there, they can interfere with enzyme reactions, damage membranes, and block nerve transmissions.
Symptoms are often related to the area of the body most affected:
- Brain: Anxiety, depression, and mood swings
- Arteries: Buildup of hard plaque
- Gut: Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
G6PD test required prior to receiving IV
A Better Approach to Heavy Metal Removal
Forum Health uses IV chelation therapy with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) and dimercaptopropane sulfonate (DMPS). These chelating agents bind to excess or toxic metals so they can be removed.
We’ll work with you to personalize your care and use every tool in our power to help you feel your best every day.
Certain foods can be used to remove heavy metals. But this process is slow, difficult, and relatively ineffective for patients with symptoms.
Oral chelation using EDTA has shown some benefits. But the quickest and most effective method is IV chelation therapy using both EDTA and DMPS.
EDTA and DMPS are chelation salts that grab hold of heavy metals, detaching them from calcium so they can be passed through urine. DMPS is effective for brain detoxification.
To achieve the best results, we pair chelation therapy with IV glutathione, a critical part of your body’s ability to detoxify.
