Chelation & I.V. Therapy

iv therapyThe Environmental Protection Agency has stated that roughly 60% of chronic diseases are caused by heavy metal poisoning of some sort which is why Young Foundational Health Center offers Chelation therapy to help our patients combat this every-increasing threat to public health.

60% of chronic diseases are caused by heavy metal poisoning…


What is Chelation Therapy?

Chelation is the process of eliminating heavy metals such as lead, arsenic or mercury from the body through the intravenous injection of a chelating agent.

The goal of Chelation therapy is to remove heavy metals or toxins from the body and is done mainly through the use of a chelating agent called EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid) – a synthetic amino acid. EDTA pulls lead, arsenic, and aluminum out of the body allowing the body to resume its normal function. Foundational Health Center offers testing for heavy metal overload via a simple urine test.


What is I.V. Nutrition Therapy?

Intravenous Nutrient Therapy is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural therapeutic substances directly into the bloodstream and cells, bypassing the digestive tract, where many nutrients may be partially or fully lost due to higher than normal blood levels of specified nutrients, which have been shown by the scientific literature to be effective in the treatment of many conditions and disease processes.

Therapeutic Applications

These conditions include: Hypertension, Asthma, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Migraine, Depression, Cardiovascular Disease, Upper Respiratory Tract Infections, Seasonal Allergies, Athletic Performance, Cancer, HIV Infection, Congestive Heart Failure, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Neuropathy, and Diabetes.
