Dr. Lalezar conducts a six-hour urine toxicology screening after administering DMPS, as a provocative chelating agent, which binds to heavy metals. DMPS is then followed by infusion of Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant which supports the liver and enhances detoxification. Glutathione also prevents redistribution of heavy metals and makes DMPS much safer. The amounts of heavy metals present in the urine are then measured. This is one of the most useful diagnostic tests for evaluating heavy metal burden. It measures the amount of hidden metals stored in fat cells. Often patients ask about a hair analysis or a blood test for measuring heavy metals. Both these measures are not an accurate indicator of what is stored at a cellular level. The blood and hair tests only indicate what has been excreted into the blood or hair and not what is stored at a cellular level.
At the Health and Vitality Center, Dr. Lalezar, well-known for educating the public on the dangers of heavy metal burden, will use intravenously-administered chelating agents such as DMPS or caEDTA, which bind to heavy metals, forming a water-soluble complex that is eliminated harmlessly through the urine. This is a clinically-proven, highly effective treatment. IV glutathione is also given to enhance detoxification. Both treatments are given in our comfortable, relaxing infusion room. During your IV treatment, you can read, listen to music, and work on your computer.
