The Tigard Holistic Health Clinic is actively involved in treating patients with heavy metal poisoning. The clinic has specific treatment protocols as well as adjunct therapies to successfully threat heavy metal poisoning. The THHC physicians have advanced training in Environmental Medicine. Two of our physcians are certified by the American Academy of Advancement for Medicine.

The Tigard Holistic Health Clinic uses state of the art testing to measure toxic metals in the body. We use a nationally certified laboratory to assess our patients samples in detecting the presence of heavy metals.

There are several chelating drugs that can be used to clear the body of heavy metal burden. After testing your physician will determine which medication is indicated. Currently the use of the following drug therapy is utilized at the clinic:

  • DMPS 2,3 diamercaptopropane-1-sulfonic acid
  • DMSA – meso-2,3 dimercaptosuccinic acid
  • EDTA – Ethyl Diamine Tetraacetic Acid
  • In addition Vitamin C and Glutathione are used as natural chelators.

See Articles for more detail information of chelating drugs.
