Heavy Metal Testing & Detoxification
Using comprehensive testing to assess your toxic load, we offer medical detox programs that include nutraceuticals, IV therapy, infrared therapy, and other evidence-based treatments to improve symptoms and disease risk
Living in a toxic world
Our modern lifestyles expose us to a range of toxins. From pesticides in produce to chemicals in cosmetics, toxins are impossible to avoid. Our detoxification organs, particularly our liver and kidneys, work hard to remove harmful substances from our body. However, with such high levels of toxins, our body can no longer keep up and our health suffers. Many of the modern-day health complaints can correlate with heavy metal toxicity: fatigue, sleep disturbances, hormone imbalances, allergies, low immunity, and weight gain.
Heavy Metal Testing
Heavy metals are toxins with incredibly damaging effects to our cells. Common heavy metals that we have daily exposure to include mercury, cadmium, arsenic, lead, and aluminum. Due to their chemical similarity to essential minerals in our body, heavy metals can persist in the body for years, slowly causing damage, accelerating aging, and suppressing daily health.
LifeClinic offers a range of heavy metal testing options depending on the suspected severity of your toxicity. We also support our understanding of your unique detoxification capacities with additional testing such as DNA analysis.
Unlike conventional healthcare, we choose functional medicine assessments that allow us not only to detect disease, but to pinpoint where your health is straying from homeostasis to ultimately help bring you back to optimal health.
Detoxification treatments on the market can range greatly in safety and efficacy. At LifeClinic, we offer evidence-based therapies overseen by our team of medical professionals. With our personalized and comprehensive approach to health, our plans incorporate nutraceuticals, IV therapy, infrared therapy, and other medical treatments. Together with our team, we can help support detoxification and clear toxic compounds to alleviate symptoms, reduce disease risk, and support long-term health.
What Is Detoxification
Our body is constantly neutralizing chemicals, pollutants, toxins and drugs from the body. Due to the increased volume of these toxins and pollutants in everyday living, our body becomes over-loaded and ill-health can occur. Medical detoxification facilitates the detoxification process and helps clear up the backlog of toxins from the body. This is achieved through a simple cleansing diet, nutritional supplements, supportive treatments, IV nutrients and heavy metal chelation.
Is it Safe?
Clients may sometimes experience minor side effects from detoxification such as headaches, muscles aches, hunger pains, light-headedness and low blood sugar. This is due to toxins being released from the cells and is expected. Simple measures such drinking more fluids and rest is all that is needed to ease these symptoms. Our detox treatment and program are medically supervised and clients are welcome to contact our support staff if they have any concerns.
