Heavy Metal Overload
In small quantities, certain heavy metals are essential for a healthy life. These are referred to as trace elements. Heavy metals become toxic when they accumulate in large amounts that are too excessive for metabolism. These metals then accumulate in the soft tissues. Metals may enter the body through food, water, air, or absorption through the skin. Common means of acquisition in modern times is through smoking and having amalgam fillings. The most commonly encountered toxic metals are Arsenic, Lead, Aluminum, Mercury, Cadmium, and Iron.
Heavy metal overload can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous system function, lower energy levels, and damage to blood composition, liver, kidney, lung, and other vital organs. Long-term exposure may result in slowly progressive physical, muscular and neurological degenerative processes. Symptoms of chronic exposure are very similar to symptoms of other health conditions and often develop over several months or years.
The doctor starts with a simple challenge test used in conjunction with urine collection that will indicate which metals are in abundance in the body. Once these are identified our center can assist each patient in getting rid of these incapacitating heavy metals with safe Chelation, both oral and intravenous. In addition, our specialist can counsel the individual patient about which foods are helpful in removing these toxic metals, and which foods one should avoid that contain significant levels of these metals.
Dr. Allibone analyzes each patient on a case-by-case basis. He is dedicated to finding the exact root of the problem and fixing it to that the problem does not come back. Our center will not only fix your symptoms but also set you on the path to long-term optimal health.
