DETOX – CLEANSING OF HEAVY METALS – ENVIRONMENTAL MEDICINE

Heavy metals and other toxic substances impair the biochemical and biophysical properties of the cells and the extracellular matrix.

They considerably reduce, for example, the functioning of the mitochondria (see ‘Mitochondrial medicine’), the enzymes and the cell membrane and a variety of enzymes. There are, however, also structural changes when they are deposited in the extracellular matrix. Contamination with heavy metals or other toxic substances promotes the emergence of chronic illnesses such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, chronic fatigue syndrome, and mental illnesses such as depression, etc.

Contamination with heavy metals is one of the main causes of chronic illnesses.

Whereby the actual uptake of heavy metals does not even play a major role. Almost 50% of people have a genetically determined limitation of their detoxification capability. This means that, given the same exposure, a major proportion of the population are less able to detoxify their bodies than other people. This leads to an increasing accumulation of toxins. Such people are at great risk of suffering chronic illnesses such as allergies, high blood pressure, depressions, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or even cancer.

Heavy metals lead to the formation of free radicals, damage the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cells), disrupt the functioning of enzymes, hinder cell repair and cell communication, can lead to the degeneration of cells (cancer formation), and interfere with the functioning of the immune system. We therefore always carry out an examination of the heavy metal load when someone comes to our clinic with a chronic illness.

Diagnosis:

This is based on a detailed internal and regulatory medical examination.

An examination for heavy metals can only take place when the patient has good kidney and liver function, and an optimum supply of micronutrients. We verify chronic heavy metal contamination according to the protocol of the German Association for Medical Toxicology (KMT) using the chelating agents Ca-EDTA and DMPS. The body cannot metabolise these substances, which only form bonds with metals and are quickly excreted again in urine.

We examine your urine for metals one hour after administering the chelating agent. This so-called provocation test is the only scientifically recognised method for proving the existence of chronic metal poisoning. We combine the test with vital field technology and additional infusions (glutathione, ProcCluster® procaine, alpha-lipoic acid) to improve the release of metals from the tissues and their bonding with the chelating agents, as well as to support the excretion of metals.

 

Therapy:

Detoxification therapy takes place according to the results of the provocation test (see above) with Ca-EDTA or DMPS individually or with both substances together.

In some cases, we also work with Zn-DPTA (e.g. when the body is loaded with the MRT contrast medium Gadolinium). A provocation test is carried out again after 10 detoxification therapy sessions. More sessions may be necessary in some cases (e.g. with Parkinson’s, ALS, MS, etc.), until the symptoms improve.

The body must be strengthened before detoxification therapy can be carried out if the organism has been seriously weakened by a chronic illness.

We recommend that this treatment is accompanied by a lot of walks outdoors, a diet rich in vital substances and bases – particularly taking into account sulphur-containing amino acids (found especially in onion, leek, wild garlic, garlic, cabbage), a lot of liquids, perspiring (e.g. bio-sauna, infrared cabin, movement) and the ingestion of micronutrients that we put together for you on an individual basis.

Care should be taken regarding algae (e.g. chlorella) and coriander extract. It is important to ensure maximum quality here as these plants themselves may be heavily loaded with toxins. It is not unusual for the body’s own detoxification system to be impaired by a genetic variant of the detoxification enzymes or by a disturbance of the intestinal environment. In such cases these preparations could even trigger the symptoms of poisoning because toxins that the body are unable to excrete are mobilised from the tissues. This cannot occur with the direct bonding of heavy metals with chelating agents (e.g. EDTA and DMPS).
