"Approximately 250,000 U.S. children aged 1-5 years have blood lead levels greater than 10 micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood, the level at which CDC recommends public health actions be initiated. Lead poisoning can affect nearly every system in the body. Because lead poisoning often occurs with no obvious symptoms, it frequently goes unrecognized."

 

We don't treat disease, we try to remove from you what might cause disease and enhance your body's natural defenses against it.

People get sick because they have been exposed to something (allergen, virus, bacteria, fungus, chemical, heavy metal, radiation, mineral etc.) at a time or in a fashion that your body was unable fight it off. Our bodies are extremely resilient to most exposures, unless we are nutritionally or immuno-compromised. Preventive Medicine addresses health in two ways: removing and eliminating exposure of harmful substances and assuring that our bodies maintain a state of optimum health with proper nutrition, sleep, exercise, hormone replacement and minimization of stress.

Detoxification is the process of cleaning, nourishing and resting the body, from the inside out. It works by addressing the needs of individual cells. Disturbed cellular function is the basis of disease, poor health and lowered physical and mental performance. CELLULAR DAMAGE PDF-1 & CELLULAR DAMAGE PDF-2

When in comes to medicine; common sense is often the last thing that most doctors, regulators and phamacuetical companies look at. Countless scientific studies illustrates that cellular damage/death is the cause of disease. Similarly, exposure to toxins (chemicals, metals, viruses, bacteria, fungus & radiation), lack of appropriate nutrition and exposure to unecessary stress, causes cellular damage/death. Why is it that most medical professionals refuse to make the connection that removal of toxins, decrease in stress and optimum nutrition might prevent disease?

What we believe it is your doctor's responsibility to assess your:

1) nutritional intake (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, omega 3 fats, water, calories & antioxidants).
2) evacuation patterns (how often and in what quantities you urinate & defecate).
3) history of exposure to environmental toxins, hormones, radiation, genetically modified foods and pesticides.
4) optimum weight and developing a plan of action to attain it

And to provide encouragement to modify lifestyle and dietary choices to promote optimum health and detoxification from toxins that might get you sick.

 

DMSA - Oral Detoxification Program

Heavy metals can do significant damage to the body. Historically, they’ve been used as “an instrument of murder” (in the case of arsenic) and instruments of war. But most people who are exposed to heavy metals in today’s times are through their food, water, vaccines, or the air around them.

In high amounts, heavy metal toxicity can cause numerous symptoms like headache, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and even death. In lower amounts toxicity from lead or mercury, for example, can have much subtler effects. In either case, however, ridding the body of these harmful metals is important.

Removal of heavy metals from the body is known as chelation. This word actually comes from the Greek word “claw” and was used because early practitioners saw substances that they believed grabbed a hold of the metals and carried them out of the body through the digestive system. The term stuck.

NO SULFA ALLERGIES

DMSA binds with mercury, arsenic, lead, and probably with antimony, bismuth, and gold, hastening excretion from the body. Unless you test extremely high Insurance will not cover the cost. Regardless we do not participate with any insurance companies and will not submit any receipts on your behalf. Insurance companies have a tendancy to pay now and come back years later demanding reimbursement for unecessary services. The government has not acknowledged pullutants as a potential danger to your health.

In order to treat you, we need

1) BLOODWORK (CBC, CMP & Liver Panel) prior to any patient stating oral chelation therapy and once per month. Most Insurance will cover the cost.

2) HEAVY METALS URINE TESTING: Collect a small amount of urine prior to taking capsule; then collect urine for 6 hours after taking capsule . ($75 each paid directly to laboratory).

a. Immediately after awaking, empty the bladder completely. Do not eat any food for one hour except for small amount of food needed to take the DMSA.

b. Take two 250mg DMSA capsules with an 8-ounce glass of water or other fluid immediately after the bladder is emptied. The capsules may be opened up and added to the food for adults who have difficulty in swallowing capsules.

c. Collect all urine in the plastic collection jug for six hours after taking the two 250mg DMSA capsules.

d. At the end of the 6-hours, empty the bladder of all urine into the collection jug one last time.

e. If you know from experience that you cannot collect the urine for six hours or you try to collect six hours of urine but are unsuccessful, mark the requisition as a random collection.

f. Follow the regular instructions for shipping urine samples for metals.

Cycles: $375 each.

Subsequent follow-up urine testing for metals required $75 each (not included in price).

Most people do approx. 10 cycles. If you need special decreased dosing additional charge applies.

Monthly Blood work required (not included in price - your insurance probably covers this).

 

ESTIMATED COSTS:

Consult & Testing Materials & Lab Tests: $250.00 ($150 of this is PAID TO LAB DIRECLY BY PATIENT- Insurance might cover?)

10 Cycles @ $3750 each* = $3750.00

*(supplements not included)

2 Additional Urine tests: $150 (PAID TO LAB DIRECLY BY PATIEN-- Insurance might cover?T)

 

BLOODWORK EXTRA CHARGE NOT INCLUDED INSURANCE MIGHT COVER?

SUPPLEMENTS REQUIRED BEFORE, DURING OR AFTER DMSA  (1st MONTH+ of Supplies included in Initial DMSA cycle)

STOP TAKING 24 HOURS BEFORE DMSA:

  1. Do not take Garlic, NAC, Cysteine, Methionine, MSM, or other sulfur containing supplements while taking DMSA. These supplements inactivate DMSA.  Stop during 3 days of DMSA cycle.
  2. NAC 100-300 mg/day during off days (DMSA depletes Cysteine). Stop during 3 days of DMSA cycle.
  3. Do not eat chlorella, garlic, onions, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and cilantro while taking DMSA. They chelate Mercury, but inactivate DMSA. Stop during 3 days of DMSA cycle.
  4. Buffered Vitamin C 1000+ mg/day. It is a natural chelator. Take Everyday
  5. No tuna, bottom feeders, swordfish or shell fish. Eliminate from Diet 7 days before DMSA cycle.
  6. Start taking alpha-lipoic acid 100mg with each DMSA dose after successfully completing 4 rounds of DMSA (each round is 3 days). This is thought to help remove metals from brain.
  7. Take Vitamin E 400mg Daily. Take Everyday
  8. Replete Zinc 30 mg daily.  Take 24 hours after DMSA, not while on it.  Stop taking 24 hours before DMSA.
  9. If on DMSA (Thorne Captomer, Chemet, or Succimer), check CBC (complete blood count) and CMP (complete metabolic panel) after every 2 cycles.
  10. Take 500mg MSM 7 days before and stop 24 hours before starting round of DMSA, and on off days between cycles.
  11. Take Daily Multivitamin / Mineral everyday. Stop during 3 days of DMSA cycle.

Recommended Adult Dosage
Practitioners report minimal incidence of side effects associated with a dosing protocol that entails 500 mg DMSA, 3X/day ) 30 Minutes before Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner- Don’t Combine Doses.  500mg capsule, 3X per day, for 3 days. Then do NOT take any DMSA for 11 days. If you get a headache start with LOWER Dose (call office –additional medication additional charge). Stop DMSA if rash appears on skin.  This is a pretty common side effect. Resume DMSA 4 weeks after rash resolves.

Adverse Reactions
Negative or adverse reactions are rare and are strongly related to LENGTH of usage and NOT dosage levels. Therefore, it is recommended to start treatment with a mid to high level of DMSA to avoid adverse reactions. Should a patient notice any adverse reactions simply discontinue usage and allow your body to recover. It is recommended that patients wait 4 weeks before restarting chelation after any adverse reactions have been noted, please discuss with our staff. While chelating avoid eating fish and shellfish.

How Long Do I Need To Chelate?

Most individuals do 10 cycles to significantly rid their bodies of heavy metals. Note that a cycle is 2 weeks as stated above (3 days on, and 11 days off.) This means you should chelate for approximately 5-6 months. At the end of your last chelation cycle it is recommended that you take the urine challenge to assess the levels of metals in your body. The urine challenge is the ONLY way to accurately measure the metals in your body. Hair analysis and blood tests cannot accurately show your body burden for heavy metals, such tests are only useful for acute/recent exposures to heavy metals.

Toxic Metals Brochure

Heavy Metals are shown to cause disease. Precise levels that are toxic to one person are benign to another. When evaluating toxicity one should consider the patient's overall health and what combination of toxicities their specific patient can handle. If the CDC and EPA issues a statement or policy stating that the toxic level is10 micrograms per deciliter of lead; but what is your child also has low level mercury exposure and happens to be already immuno-compromised with strep throat? New Age Medical Clinic believes that ANY poison is too much poison.

New Age Medical Clinic utilizes blood, hair, urine and fecal testing to determine heavy metal toxicity and works with patients to determine a strategy to promote optimum health. The most common metals we see in patients are lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminum. Mercury is chemically similar selenium; Lead is chemically similar calcium; Cadmium is chemically similar to zinc and Aluminum is chemically similar to magnesium. The metals are so chemically similar to substances your body NEEDS to function that your body is tricked into absorbing them. Once inside, these metals are trapped and begin a cascade of devastating effects; most of which are just coming into focus.

 

MERCURY

Exposure to mercury occurs from breathing contaminated air, ingesting contaminated water and food, and having dental and medical treatments.

The nervous system is very sensitive to all forms of mercury. Methylmercury and metallic mercury vapors are more harmful than other forms, because more mercury in these forms reaches the brain. Exposure to high levels of metallic, inorganic, or organic mercury can permanently damage the brain, kidneys, and developing fetus. Effects on brain functioning may result in irritability, shyness, tremors, changes in vision or hearing, and memory problems.

 

Short-term exposure to high levels of mercury may cause effects including lung damage, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, increases in blood pressure or heart rate, skin rashes, and eye irritation.

 

LEAD

People are most likely to be exposed to lead by consuming contaminated food and drinking water. Exposure can also occur by inadvertently ingesting contaminated soil, dust, or lead-based paint. Ingestion is the primary source of exposure to the general population.

Lead paint is a major source of environmental exposure for children who ingest flaking paint, paint chips, and weathered powdered paint (mostly from deteriorated housing units in urban areas).

Lead paint can also contribute to soil/dust lead which can be inadvertently ingested via hand-to-mouth activity of young children. Lead can leach into drinking water from lead-based solder used in water pipes. Lead can leach into foods or liquids stored in ceramic containers made with lead glazing. Engaging in hobbies such as casting ammunition, making fishing weights, and stained glass can result in exposure to lead.

Exposure by inhalation can result during activities such as soldering with lead solder or sanding or sandblasting lead-based paint.

The most sensitive targets for lead toxicity are the developing nervous system, the hematological and cardiovascular systems, and the kidney. However, because of lead’s many modes of action lead could potentially affect any system or organ.

CADMIUM

In the United States, smoking is the primary source of cadmium exposure after that is from the food supply. People who regularly consume shellfish and organ meats will have higher exposures. In general, leafy vegetables such as lettuce and spinach, potatoes and grains, peanuts, soybeans, and sunflower seeds contain high levels of cadmium.

People who fish in local waters as a means of food should be cautious and abide by any advisories.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has determined that cadmium and cadmium compounds are known human carcinogens. Cadmium has been linked to diminished kidney function lung disease, chronic bronchitis and lung, kidney and prostate cancers.

 

ALUMINUM

Everyone is exposed to low levels of aluminum from food, air, water, and soil. Exposure to high levels of aluminum may result in respiratory and neurological problems. Aluminum (in compounds combined with other elements) has been found in at least 596 of the 1,699 National Priority List (NPL) sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

 

• Virtually all food, water, air, and soil contain some aluminum.

• Breathing higher levels of aluminum dust in workplace.

• Living in areas where the air is dusty, where aluminum is mined or processed into aluminum metal, near certain hazardous waste sites, or where aluminum is naturally high.

• Eating substances containing high levels of aluminum (such as antacids) especially when eating or drinking citrus products at the same time.

• From vaccinations.

Some people with kidney disease store a lot of aluminum in their bodies and sometimes develop bone or brain diseases. Some studies show that people exposed to high levels of aluminum may develop Alzheimer’s disease. Studies in animals show that the nervous system is a sensitive target of aluminum toxicity. However, the animals did not perform as well in tests that measured the grip strength or how much they moved around.
