Heavy Metal Toxicity Treatment

Heavy metal toxicity occurs when abnormal levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury and aluminum, build up in the body.

Sadly, there are numerous sources of heavy metals in everyday life; lipsticks, fish, soft drink cans, children’s toys, cookware and vaccines. When this builds up, it can disrupt the normal functioning of the body and can lead to a number of chronic conditions such as chronic headaches, depression, chronic fatigue and many more.

Common Heavy Metals that are Treated and their Sources

The most common heavy metals that humans are exposed to are:

  • Mercury - foundin amalgam fillings, seafood, cosmetics, tattoos, hair dyes, pesticides, paint, plastics, and mercury thermometers.
  • Aluminum - found in soda cans, cookware, deodorants, tap water, stomach antacids, aluminum foil, automotive parts and vaccinations.
  • Lead - found in lead based paint, old plumbing, pottery, tobacco smoke, scrap metal, automobile exhaust, crayons and hair coloring.
  • Cadmium – found in cigarette smoke, tobacco, coffee, steel cooking pans, metal pipes, tap water, rubber, fertilizers, dental alloys, batteries, candy, refined cereals, colas, copper refineries, fungicides, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs.
  • Arsenic - present in some drinking water, seafood, rice, mushrooms, poultry, pressure-treated lumber, pesticides, in glass, and animal hides.

Testing Heavy Metal Levels

It is important that anyone suffering from a serious health condition be tested to find out what their heavy metal levels. Even if you are currently healthy it does not mean that you don’t have significant quantities of heavy metals in your body which may affect your health in the future. It is important to find out what your heavy metal levels are and high levels are detected, you should begin treatment to reduce them.

Metals can be detected in either a hair, stool or urine test. Since the body excretes heavy metals their levels can be measured by these tests. At LifeWorks Wellness Center, a urine sample is taken after one dose of chelation therapy and if heavy metal toxicity is detected, treatment can begin.

Why Treat For This?

Heavy metal toxicity is treated because it poses a serious health hazard to patients. Left un-diagnosed and untreated, it can lead to health issues from fatigue and headaches, to more serious conditions such as Alzheimer’s, gastro-intestinal irritation, autism, kidney disease and many more.

The primary heavy metal treatment option is chelation therapy which is administered via IV. Chelation therapy is approved by the FDA and has been successfully used to treat heavy metal toxicity for many years. When heavy metals are chelated and removed from the body via the urine, many health disorders can be avoided and a sense of well-being can be restored.

Achieving Success in Treatment

Successful treatment programs begin by establishing what your heavy metal levels are. At LifeWorks Wellness Center, a urine test will show the levels present in a patient’s body. If these are found to be high, the practitioner will advise the patient undergoes a course of chelation therapy.

Chelation therapy has a long history of success in treatment of heavy metal toxicity. EDTA is administered by IV drip, along with vitamin C, B complex, Magnesium and specific homeopathics. Patients usually benefit from 2-3 treatments per week for 3-4 weeks. After their tenth IV, the patient’s urine will be re-tested and the heavy metal levels evaluated.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
