Chelation therapy removes heavy metals such as iron, mercury, copper, arsenic, and aluminum from the body. Some of these metals, such as iron, are beneficial in small quantities. But health is about moderation, so too many heavy metals can ruin your health. Our IV drip chelation protocols grab heavy metals, improving your health.

What is Heavy Metal Toxicity?

True heavy metal toxicity is a life-threatening condition that demands prompt medical treatment. Lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium are the most common causes of heavy metal poisoning, and children are especially vulnerable—both because of their tendency to put things in their mouth and because their small body size means smaller doses are more likely to be lethal.

You don’t have to drink lead-contaminated water to develop heavy metal toxicity, though. Lower levels of heavy metals won’t kill you, but they may undermine your health. Over time, a range of unpleasant symptoms may go undiagnosed. If your doctor cannot explain your symptoms, you could have heavy metal toxicity that’s not severe enough to kill you, but that is sufficient to undermine your overall health and well-being.

Who is at Risk for Heavy Metal Poisoning?

Anyone exposed to heavy metals can suffer from metal poisoning, but some people are at greater risk than others. Among adults, risk factors include:

  • Exposure to heavy metals in research or medical laboratories.
  • Working in heavy metal industries.
  • Exposure to heavy metals in the diet.
  • Taking large quantities of heavy metal-containing supplements, such as by consistently taking more than the recommended daily allowance of iron.
  • Exposure to environmental toxins. For example, thousands of children in Michigan were recently exposed to lead in the water supply. In some nations, exposure to arsenic in the water is common. Consequently, travel to areas with poor quality water or few environmental protections is a risk factor.

Symptoms of Heavy Metal Poisoning

The symptoms of heavy metal poisoning vary widely, and can take years to appear. For example, lead poisoning in children may cause developmental delays that remain invisible for a few years. Life-threatening heavy metal poisoning often produces immediate symptoms or life-threatening illnesses such as cancer. But lower level heavy metal toxicity can be more difficult to detect.

This form of toxicity is usually due to chronic, low-level exposure such as through leaking mercury dental fillings. The wide range of symptoms that suggest heavy metal poisoning include:

  • Allergies, particularly new allergies
  • Mental health problems such as anxiety and depression
  • Changes in cognition
  • Attention and memory difficulties
  • Unexplained weight loss or gain
  • Organ failure, or decreased organ function; liver issues are especially common.
  • Chronic infections such as yeast or bladder infections
  • Circulatory issues
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • A weakened immune system that causes the frequent development of cold and flu viruses
  • Low body temperature
  • A metallic taste in the mouth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Skin problems such as extremely dry skin, sebaceous cysts, and severe acne
  • Infertility and hormonal imbalances
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Malabsorption of vitamins and nutrients

Chelation Therapy: How it Works, Whom it Benefits

Chelation therapy involves the injection of a synthetic amino acid that binds to heavy metals, helping the body process and remove them. Chelation therapy can also remove calcium. Plaques in the arteries that cause a range of cardiovascular problems are composed partially of calcium. For this reason, some alternative practitioners argue that chelation therapy could improve heart health by:

  • Directly removing the plaques that clog arteries.
  • Reduce oxidative stress to the blood vessels, potentially reducing blood vessel inflammation and improving cardiovascular health.
  • Stimulating the release of hormones that attack calcium in the blood vessels and lower cholesterol.

The research on this use of chelation therapy is unclear, but because chelation is safe, it’s worth trying—particularly if cardiovascular disease endangers your health.
