Heavy Metals Testing

Harmful Heavy Metals

Serene IV Infusions and Wellness Lounge administers Heavy Metals Testing for toxic metals using Chelation Therapy.

Chronic exposure to and the accumulation of lead has been associated with cardiovascular and all-cause morbidity and mortality. It has also been associated with accelerated declines in cognitive function and has been theorized as a contributor to essential hypertension.

Chelation

Chelation is the use of a substance to bind with metals in order to pull them out of tissue, and drag them into the blood where they can then be filtered out to the kidney.

Its use predates the pharmacologic era. It has been used for an array of medical conditions, especially cardiovascular. Interest in it from conventional medicine waned with the advent of stents and drug therapy.

Some of the heavy metals we test include:

  • Lead
  • Cadmium
  • Dandulanium
  • Mercury
  • Arsenic

How it Works

We use Calcium EDTA for our Chelation Therapy. EDTA can latch onto metals and pull out toxic metals from their hiding places such as in the bones and other organs, and pull them into the bloodstream where they can be eliminated through the kidneys. Each chelation therapy is patient-specific.

Who Can Benefit?

Chelation therapy for the treatment of the following conditions is considered medically necessary:

  • Diabetics
  • Emergency treatment of hypercalcemia
  • History of cancer
  • History of heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Lead poisoning
  • Myocardial infarction, stents, stroke
  • Mild Cognitive Impairment
  • Occupational Exposure: police, hunters, construction workers
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Pre-pregnancy
  • Routine Preventative Health Maintenance

Chelation and Testing Process

The goal of chelation is to reduce your risk of heart disease, dementia, cancer, and other chronic degenerative consequences from heavy metals.

Therapy

You’ll receive an IV of calcium EDTA, in 250 mL normal saline in over 30-60 minutes. This agent pulls metals out of the body into the bloodstream which can be passed out through the urine and properly measured.

Testing

The client will be given a urine collection kit where urine is collected for 6-8 hours, after which a urine sample is sent for testing. The result can take up to 2 weeks.

Results

Once the results show the number of toxic metals accumulated in the body, a plan is created to reduce and possibly eliminate the toxic metals.

Chelation FAQs

Is Chelation Therapy safe?
In short, yes. When chelation is employed as a preventive measure, it can help counter potential harm from free radicals and cardiovascular issues. Contrary to the doubts raised by skeptics, when administered by qualified experts and in combination with a suitable diet, natural supplements, and lifestyle adjustments, chelation therapy presents a holistic alternative treatment. Based on statistics, this therapy is actually safer than operating a contemporary car or using widely prescribed medications.
Does chelation therapy hurt or cause pain?
As this therapy involves a straightforward intravenous procedure, it entails minimal discomfort. While patients are receiving treatment, they have the freedom to sit, use the restroom, engage in conversation, have a meal, enjoy a drink, and even make phone calls. Additionally, to ensure patient comfort during chelation sessions, we offer soft pillows, electrical outlets for computers or tablets, and a dedicated staff ready to assist, communicate, and attend to your medical requirements.
What is Calcium EDTA?
Calcium EDTA plays a crucial role in detoxification, aiding in eliminating metals from the body. Beyond its metal-removing properties, calcium EDTA contributes to the regulation of calcium and cholesterol metabolism by eliminating toxins, which, in turn, helps prevent free radical damage. Free radicals, consisting of atoms and molecules with unpaired electrons, are scientifically recognized as significant contributors to conditions like diabetes, atherosclerosis, and various well-known age-related diseases.
Will chelation therapy affect joint replacement?
No, Chelation therapy exclusively targets dissolved metal ions with a positive charge. As stents and joint replacements are typically composed of stainless steel, alloys, and titanium, the risk of causing significant harm to these medical implants is minimal.
What harm does mercury pose to the human body?
When left unaddressed, mercury can potentially harm virtually every organ system in the body. Elevated levels of mercury can have adverse effects on specific conditions such as ADHD, heart disease, autism, autoimmune diseases, and various neurological issues.
Can chelation therapy be used with other treatments?
Depending on the particular method employed, chelation therapy can be combined with a wide range of other treatments, including specific medications, vitamin supplements, and lifestyle adjustments.
Are there side effects?

Side effects may include headache, fatigue, vein irritation, arthralgia, hypoglycemia, fever, and chills. Chelating drugs can also bind to and remove some metals necessary in the body, like calcium, copper, and zinc.
