Chelation Therapy Miami
WHAT IS CHELATION THERAPY?
Looking for Chelation Therapy in Miami? Chelation Therapy is the science of detecting and removing toxic elements and metals that accumulate in our bodies. Unfortunately, these toxic compounds accumulate in vital tissues over time and may alter or damage the nervous, vascular and other organ systems.
“ChelateMe” first involves a challenge test to determine your levels of these elements by obtaining a 12 hour urine collection. If your levels are found to be elevated, Dr. Sanchez will recommend an IV Chelation regimen to clean and detox your body of harmful elements.
Chelation Therapy is a comprehensive program requiring multiple treatments with physician and lab monitoring. Please call us for further information and to schedule an appointment for your Chelation Therapy in Miami today.
Who Needs Chelation Therapy In Miami?
If you are suffering from any sort of chronic pain, digestive ailments, new food intolerances or sensitives, you might be a good candidate for chelation therapy in Miami. When toxic heavy metals build up in your system, they are capable of binding to receptors in the food that you eat. Once that occurs, the body might identify the food that you just ate as an intruder. This yields an autoimmune response which can result in a number of strange reactions and symptoms. Chelation therapy might be the first step in your journey into holistic health.
Other people who might be suffering from toxic heavy metals in their system are those who have received mercury fillings in their teeth. Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Carlos Sanchez, our functional medicine doctor in order to see if Miami chelation therapy is right for you.
Other conditions and symptoms that might qualify you as a candidate for Chelation therapy include but are not limited to:
- some autoimmune disorders
- joint and muscle pain
- lyme disease
- skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis or even dandruff
How Does Chelation Therapy Work?
WHAT IS EDTA?
To answer how Miami Chelation Therapy works at Healthy Me Medical Therapies we must talk about the chelating agent. EDTA (ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid) is a molecule that binds to metals such as lead, mercury and other toxic heavy metals. These metals are referred to as “heavy” because they weigh more than blood.
Doctors have used the molecule for decades to treat heavy metal poisoning. EDTA is also an ingredient in some cancer fighting remedies. EDTA has been FDA approved and is considered safe both in foods and as a chelating agent under physician supervision.
HOW MANY SESSIONS OF CHELATION THERAPY DO I NEED?
This all depends on your test results. The more metals you have in your system, the more sessions will be recommended by a physician. Frequency of chelation treatments is usually 1-2 times per week but my vary depending on the patient. For more details on treatment please set an appointment for chelation therapy with Dr. Carlos Sanchez.
ARE THERE ANY SIDEFFECTS TO CHELATION THERAPY?
Unfortunately, yes. The detox process is not easy. Chelation patients are directed to drink about a gallon of purified water during and after their treatment. You will have a limited amount of time to detox the metals from your system while the EDTA molecule is present. That is why it is imperative to drink as much water as possible. Patients may feel tired, rundown and even have an exacerbation of muscle and joint pain depending on the level of their toxicity. The detox feeling also known as the herxheimer effect should subside by the next day or two. The less of a presence of metal in your body the easier the chelation process is going to be. This means as you progress through your treatments they should get easier in time.
Chelation Therapy & Alzheimer’s Disease
EDTA is used to treat a number of ailments including but not limited to:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Peripheral Vascular Disease

It has been found that patients suffering from autoimmune disease such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s suffer from a high volume of toxic heavy metals. Unfortunately when this is found their condition may be too far gone to reverse. This is why preventative measures and self care is important to maintain during your younger years. This may aid in the prevention of more serious conditions further down the line.
