Heavy metals such as lead, aluminum, cadmium, or mercury are considered neurotoxins. They can cause brain fog, fatigue, eczema, skin rash, hair loss, constipation, bloating, anxiety, depression and high blood pressure. Some patients may also be exposed to mercury through amalgam dental fillings. Getting a correct diagnosis is the first step in detoxifying heavy metals out of your system. Dr. Shiva Lalezar, a leading holistic doctor in Los Angeles, uses chelation therapy to treat specific, targeted medical conditions related to heavy metal toxicity. We are seeing impressive results in patients suffering from heavy metal overload at the Health and Vitality Center in Los Angeles.
How does chelation therapy work?
Chelation therapy works by administering chelating agents that bind to heavy metals and safely remove them from the body through the urine. These compounds work by forming multiple chemical bonds to a metal ion. Think of it as a claw machine that kids play in arcades. The claw (the chelating agent) picks up a stuffed animal (the metal ion).
