Chelation Therapy

Detoxification Therapy at Our Scottsdale Integrative Medical Center

Heavy metal contamination in the body can cause significant problems and risks. There are 167 types of chemicals found in the blood and urine from heavy metals such as mercury and lead. 76 of these types of chemicals can cause cancer, 94 are toxic, and 79 can cause birth defects or abnormal development. These chemicals can cause behavioral disorders, lowered IQ, and more. People who work in industrial buildings or who live near coal power plants are not the only ones affected.

Mercury and lead can be found in the body from things like:

  • Tattooing
  • Certain skin creams
  • Eating contaminated fish
  • Certain types of makeup like mascara
  • Toys
  • Toothpaste
  • Hair dyes
  • And more

How Does Chelation Work?

Several different chelating agents are used to pull heavy metals out of the body including EDTA, DPMS, and DMSA. These agents are effective through consistent dosages and can be done through IV therapy or orally through taking a pill. At our integrative medical center in Scottsdale, we perform both IV and oral chelation therapy in order to pull out heavy metals as consistently as possible. Each IV treatment can take up to 45 minutes and must be performed in a series of sessions over time with regular blood and urine work monitoring to ensure that the kidney and liver are still stable.

  • I can now truly feel like the healing has begun!

    “I wanted to let you know that I am enjoying the Brain Advantage Program tremendously but it was not very enjoyable on Day One of the Program! This is just an FYI in case you have any of my relatives or close friends take the Brain Advantage Course and have similar results (which I hope they do not!)* During the first 30 minutes of the Brain Advantage Program I started hearing a tremendous amount of negative self talk, negative images and negative childhood thoughts. My mind started putting out messages like: “You stupid idiot, you can’t do anything right.” “No one wants to look at you or be with you.” “You can’t do it.” “You are so f____ed up!” I wanted to be invisible because each thought, fueled my low self-esteem and made me want to walk out your door and not come back. In fact, after I left and drove back to my hotel, I called my husband and spoke to him in an angry tone. I told him that “I was going to come back home to Overland Park, Kansas and that I didn’t want to be here at ACAM.” In fact I said, “I wasn’t going to even get my things from the hotel room, I was just going to leave all my stuff in the hotel and fly back home.” “I wasn’t going to return your calls because I didn’t like being here…..” The emotional pain was too much. But, MANY HOURS AND MANY TEARS LATER, I realized that these were most likely past tapes or childhood messages that I had heard in the past and they were not occurring right now at this moment. But boy, they felt like they were in the here and now. Somehow, later, by the grace of God, I returned to ACAM the next morning and Dr. Reese had me talk to a former client Martina, who had gone through some similar problems ….. So, after talking to Martina, then Stephanie and Chris, and then, in more serious depth to Dr. Steven Swerdfeger…. I was able to resolve and make sense of some of these EMOTIONS being stirred in my mind via The Brain Advantage Program.* And it is a good thing that all of this happened because I can now truly feel like the healing has begun (and the ADD is being solved.)* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my Son.

    “Do you remember us? You treated my son … years ago. I have since that time talked about your practice to everyone and anyone who will listen to me. I believe a couple of friends have brought their children to you as well. So just wanted to let you know that [he] was recently accepted into the University of Arizona. Another success story for you.* I am sure your practice changed his life.* I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my Son. I wish you many, many years of continued success.* Be well and keep healing.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • Definitely a game changer!

    “I just wanted to take a moment to email you to say thank you for your very detailed testing and even considering Lyme as a possible suspect to my ailments.* Had I not gone to see you I would have never even thought of Lyme as a reason for my weakness on my right arm and leg.* In your recommendations you had stated you wanted me to possibly get checked for Lyme and I asked and asked and not one insurance doctor would do the test.* Everyone said that there was no reason to check. Well, we moved to Virginia at the end of November and finally about three weeks ago the neurologist that I went to see for my migraines here tested me for Lyme. The results came back equivocal (1.10 on Elisa) and she simply stated that they found antibodies in my blood. And she started me on Doxycycline (100mg 2x day) for 21 days. I don’t know much about Lyme but will be seeing an infectious disease doctor on Wednesday. In the meantime, we had our newborn (born 1/21/13) tested with the Western blot and another test and per the pediatrician the results were negative. We will continue praying that he will not be affected. … Thank you very much for being that little guiding light that led us in the right direction.* Once again Dr.Grout, continue to do what you do.* You were definitely a game changer for sure.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • I'm So Thankful That I'm Doing Well!

    “Hello Dr. Grout! Hope all is well there AZCAM. I think about you all often. I'm happy to say that I'm doing very well, and will schedule another phone consultation when, and if, I have questions or have something to report regarding my health. I'm so thankful that I'm doing well (including gaining some weight & muscle back), and thank you again for making the treatment for Lyme available!* It's been a Godsend for me!!! *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • This was the most positive experience I have ever had at a doctor’s office.

    “This was the most positive experience I have ever had at a doctor’s office.* Dr. Korn listened and made us a part of the decisions that were made.* He was kind and very accessible. Everyone in the office was very nice, helpful, and knew what they were doing.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
