Heavy Metal (Mercury) Detoxification

The importance of detoxification has been recognized as a key principle to promoting health and longevity for thousands of years. In ancient civilizations, the practice of routine fasting was commonly observed as a means of removing impurities and revitalizing the body. Since the industrialization of modern society, the importance of routine detoxification has increased exponentially due to the constant exposure to toxins within our polluted environment and within our contaminated food supply. There are numerous toxins that are linked to a wide range of health concerns and they must be eliminated in order to prevent disease and restore health. However, we feel that the issue of mercury toxicity represents the most serious and pervasive health risk to the general public. Therefore, we devote much of our health practice to aggressive mercury detoxification.

Our Integrated Approach to Mercury Detoxification

The staff at Palm Beach Gardens Health and Wellness does not advocate chelation therapy as a means of heavy metal or mercury detoxification because this treatment poses aa increased risk to the patients for kidney and/or liver failure, as the body eventually tries to process the dislodged metals through the eliminative organs during the final stages of removal after chelation therapy process has been completed.

We Advocate a Three Phase Approach to Mercury Detoxification

Instead of chelation therapy, we advocate a three-phase approach for mercury and heavy metal removal from the organs, tissue and bloodstream, including:
mercury fillings

Mercury Detoxification: Phase I

During the first phase of detoxification, for clients who have mercury amalgam fillings, it is imperative that the all fillings are properly removed by a qualified mercury-free removal specialist as soon as possible. Unfortunately, there is no short-cut to this step, which is absolutely necessary. We are currently compiling a list of qualified dentists who specialize in this work.

Depending upon the health of the client, the dental filling removal process may need to be done gradually rather than all at once. Additionally, we recommend that client strengthen their immune system prior to the removal of the fillings and throughout the entire detoxification process with an excellent diet and supplementation. (See Nutrition.)

Mercury Detoxification: Phase II

During the second phase, we advocate a series of (an average of 12 -14) weekly IonCleanse® ionic footbath sessions. Ionic foot baths are administered in a small tub of water with a slight amount of salt. An array is placed in the water with the feet, or hands. When turned on, the control unit delivers a small direct current into the array, which causes the array metals, in combination with the water and salt, to generate positively and/or negatively charged ions. These ions neutralize charged particles in the body. The neutralized particles are pulled out of the body through the skin via osmosis and diffusion. Osmosis and diffusion involve the movement of particles through a membrane, from a lower concentration to a higher concentration. In this case, the higher concentration is the ion field set up by the array in the water.

Unlike other practicioners, we precede all IonCleanse® foot bath cleanses with an erchonia laser therapy session. The erchonia laser stimulates the organs and tissue to release stored mercury particles into the bloodstream, which are then immediately pulled from the blood through the feet into the ionic footbath. We have found that the erchonia laser therapy prior to the ionic foot baths greatly enhances the effectiveness of the foot bath, as without the laser therapy, ionic foot baths have little or no effect on stored mercury deposits and will only cleanse mercury that is circulating in the bloodstream during the cleanse.

During Phase II, after sufficient amounts of mercury have been eliminated through the detoxification process described above, (as indicated by the contents of the detox bath water after each cleanse), the client may elect to integrate other modalities of healing services we provide, such as Ondamed (Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Frequency) Therapy or Acupuncture.

Mercury Detoxification: Phase III

Phase Three is a repeat of the detoxification process described in Phase II, involving one or two erchonia laser/ionic footbath sessions annually or bi-annually.
