Heavy Metal Toxicity

Chelation therapy has been used as a treatment (either oral or intravenous) for removing heavy metals from the blood since the 1950’s. Chelation involves the use of compounds to bind to specific heavy metals, including mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic, and remove them from the body. It involves intravenous injections of a chelating agent, typically EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), which binds to heavy metals and minerals in the blood so that the body can then eliminate them.

With expanding use of heavy metals in manufacturing processes, these toxic substances are finding ways into the human body. Heavy metals include single atoms of compounds of the following elements: lead, mercury, iron, copper, manganese, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, aluminum, silver, and beryllium. Heavy metals are extremely toxic to a patient’s body and even a single atom can wreak devastating havoc on cells, organs, neurological functioning, and many other systems of the body. Some heavy metals are more dangerous than others (such as mercury, arguably the most dangerous of the heavy metals).

Today, heavy metal toxicity is a growing problem. For instance, if many people have mercury fillings in their teeth, have been vaccinated, eat farm-raised fish or chicken regularly, consume processed food, or have gone through radiation and chemotherapy treatments, they may be experiencing heavy metal toxicity at this very moment. It is well known that heavy metals are difficult to remove from the system, and chelation therapy may be an excellent alternative to detoxify and restore the body.

Chelation therapy has shown promise in successfully improving the health of patients with such disorders as peripheral vascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, autism and other chronic and complex conditions.

Part of the problem with Chelation Therapy is that powerful Chelators like EDTA can pickup toxic heavy metals from the bones, and can redeposit it in sensitive organs like the brain where they can do even more damage.

For this reason, Infuze MD utilizes specialized oral peptides from certain strains of bacteria and algae. These peptides create a cage around the metal, binding it tightly with 3 different kinds of bonds: covalent, ionic, and hydrogen. (Traditional chelators only bind metals with a single ionic bond.) This cage that is formed prevents any further interaction with your biochemistry so the metals are safely evacuated through the bowels, leaving the sensitive kidneys untouched.
