  • Heavy metal

    Q: I have getting more and more concerned about heavy metal toxicity. My doctor says he can do a blood test, but I wanted to see what you recommend.

    Dr. Wright: Instead of a blood test, doctors should be administering a chelation test, something that is very closely related to chelation therapy. In a chelation test, a single dose of a chelating agent (usually a semi-synthetic amino acid such as EDTA) is given intravenously. These chelating agents chemically lock onto toxic metals not just in the bloodstream, but wherever they find them. The toxic metal/chelating agent complex is then eliminated in the urine and stool (though most doctors prefer to test only the urine because its easier and less expensive).

    So after the infusion has been given, all of the urine produced over the next six hours is collected and sent off to a laboratory for toxic metal testing. If high levels of toxic metals are found with a chelation test, then the best course of action is to get chelation therapy. Leaving the toxic metals in your body would go on to cause more and more damage to your cells and tissues. When people who have high levels of toxic metals undergo chelation therapy, the majority of them feel a significant improvement in both specific symptoms and in their over-all health.

    Before running out to get a chelation test or the potential subsequent chelation therapy you need to be aware of a few precautions. The American Board of Chelation Therapy and practitioners skilled and knowledgeable in chelation therapy recommend periodic replacement of nutritionally important minerals while you’re having chelation therapy since chelating agents also remove small quantities of minerals that are beneficial to your body. Finally, chelation therapy is not recommended if you have kidney disease or damage, liver disease, or a brain tumor.
