CHELATION THERAPY: Our world has become increasingly toxic:
Our bodies are assaulted daily by toxins, dangerous chemicals heavy metals and endocrine disruptors. Chronic exposure to toxins can cause a wide variety of unexplained symptoms and syndromes. Some of the toxins we can test for include Mercury, Arsenic (common in chicken feed and water), lead and PCB. At Ageless Medical New York we will monitor your urine collected over 24 hours to assess the toxin load on your body. If we find these metals or toxins, we start a chelation program incorporating oral and intravenous infusions of a Modified Meyers Cocktail with high dose vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, glutathione, N acetyl cysteine and oral chlorella. Detox is carried out slowly and safely using these natural products and avoiding pharmaceuticals if possible to avoid the side effects associated with pharmacological detox. Many unexplained rashes, joint pains and neurological problems may be due to toxins, metals and poisons. In order to successfully remove toxins and minimize side effects, infusions are carried out twice a week initially for several weeks, then weekly and monthly until the urine is clear of toxins or metals. Detoxification to correct heavy metal poisoning may take as long as 6 months to complete depending on the amount of toxins to be removed.
Glutathione: Glutathione (GSH) plays an important role in a multitude of cellular processes and reactions. It also improves the water solubility of cellular toxins, thus enhancing their clearance from the body. Disturbances in GSH are implicated in a number of diseases, including cancer, diseases of aging, cystic fibrosis, and cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disease, immune disturbances, metabolic problem, and neurodegenerative diseases. GSH protects cells by neutralizing oxygen molecules before they can form damaging free radicals in the tissues of the brain, blood vessels, immune system, kidney liver, lens in the eyes, lungs and skin. GHS increases the water solubility of toxins thereby facilitating their excretion in urine, feces, sweat and even by breathing. Humans naturally make GSH but we can become deficient when under stress or as a consequence of aging. Cellular damage is thought to be involved in diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease in which GSH may assist. In addition, imbalances in GSH levels affect immune system function, and are thought to play a role in the aging process. Because GSH can make cancer cells resistant to chemo therapy, we do not administer GSH to cancer patients currently undergoing chemo-therapy. High dose vitamin C is used without GSH for patients undergoing active chemo-therapy.
