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.

  • Thankful!

    “I have a special reason this year [2012] to be grateful: today, the day before Thanksgiving, is my 12th birthday since the doctors told me in 2001 that I would most likely not celebrate another one. At the time of my diagnosis, giving thanks was the farthest thing from my mind. But I know now that I had every reason to be grateful.* My very advanced diagnosis let me decide that, if I was going to die, I would do so with as much grace, dignity, and quality of life as I could manage.* That meant I would make the decision to take the road less traveled and refuse the ‘standard of care’: surgery, high-dose chemo and radiation. It meant that I would look for things to clean and strengthen my body and immune system, that I would find ways to grow spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically. The nine years prior to 2001, when I was dealing with chronic disease, gave me the tools to create my own healing platform. This healing platform of integrated tools and anti-cancer strategies kept me alive until I found IPT Targeted Low-Dose chemotherapy in 2002 and allowed me to literally watch the cancer leave my body.* Ultimately, it all meant that I would change my focus on life from what I could get from it to what I could give to it.* Best Answer for Cancer Foundation (BAFC) is the pathway that allows me to give back. I’m so thankful for the assistance and guidance that has helped make BAFC a thriving reality. I’m so grateful to the physician members of BAFC: to the doctors who have treated so many cancer patients, myself included. These wonderful physicians give selflessly of their time, their talent and – many times – of their own income to help people in need. They are truly incredible people, and I am honored to know them and call them my friends.* Every day, in every way, I am humbled by and thankful for the patients who come to us, who give us the chance to help them, who have the courage to walk the road less traveled of alternative and integrative medicine. They also remind me of the most powerful healing opportunity of my life and the wonderful road that resulted from it.* *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.

  • I am so thankful to you this Thanksgiving weekend for giving me my health and my life back!

    “I am so thankful to you this Thanksgiving weekend for giving me my health and my life back! Good news- I am still good and not reacting to fluorescent lights anymore. Also I seem to be reacting to chemicals less than before. I have lost that totally grounded feeling, but no more panic attacks and I can work all day without any neurological symptoms. I have had no neuro symptoms at all since I had the [Chiren] treatment in September. This is so amazing!!! I can even drink coffee and wine in small amounts now. Yeah! But have to stick to the gluten free/dairy free diet because I now get asthma symptoms when I eat anything that has gluten or dairy in it. Also my stomach can’t handle dairy any more since I’ve been off it so long. So I can’t put milk in my coffee – oh well. Had a few no-nos yesterday for the holiday and am feeling it in my chest today. Also itching- ears, eyes and skin on my face. Weird- it’s almost like I get when I am exposed to a cat. The best thing is that I am not getting any neurological symptoms anymore and I feel totally normal. I can handle a little respiratory reaction every now and then and I have my inhaler if I get into any breathing trouble. So far it has been mild and just annoying. My whole family is now gluten free and everyone is doing great! No one has been sick for the last 6 months. : ) My son, off gluten, is amazing. He just brought home a report card of straight A’s and has no more twitching or tics. *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
