What is Heavy Metal Detoxification?
We are exposed to heavy metals through our diet, medications, and the environment. It is probable that we all have heavy metals building up in our bodies. It is only when the level of metals becomes too high that someone begins to have the symptoms of heavy metal poisoning. Chelation therapy is the best way to remove those toxins and allow the body to return to its healthy state.
Symptoms of heavy metal intoxication can include general changes like brain-fog, depression, mood changes, insomnia, loss of memory, and fatigue. They can include changes in the nervous system such as tics, tremors, or gait changes. Symptoms can include changes in circulation that result in cold hands and feet. Symptoms can also include inflammation and decrease in immune function so you have more colds and cases of flu, muscle and joint pain, and headaches. This is only a partial list of heavy metal poisoning symptoms.
Chelation therapy is the administration of chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body. Chelation therapy has a long history of use in clinical toxicology. Poison centers around the world are using this form of metal detoxification.
For the most common forms of heavy metal intoxication, those involving lead, arsenic, or mercury, there are a number of chelating agents available. Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) has been recommended for the treatment of lead poisoning in children by Poison Centers around the world.
Other chelating agents, such as 2,3-dimercapto-1-propanesulfonic acid (DMPS) and alpha lipoic acid (ALA), are used in conventional and alternative medicine.
