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.
Remove toxic heavy metals
Reduce risk of chronic diseases
Support cardiovascular health
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:
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:
- Emergency treatment of hypercalcemia
- History of cancer
- History of heart disease
- Lead poisoning
- Myocardial infarction, stents, stroke
- Mild Cognitive Impairment
- Occupational Exposure: police, hunters, construction workers
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Routine Preventative Health Maintenance
Chelation and Testing Process
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.
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.

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.
