Organ Detoxification Q & A

Why is detoxification helpful?

Toxin exposure can cause a number of symptoms and serious conditions, including cancers and degenerative diseases. Traditional treatments for cancer such as surgery and radiation often don’t address toxin exposure, thus don’t effectively help your system heal.  

Heavy metal toxicity may damage various parts of the body, including your:

  • Lungs
  • Central nervous system
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Gastrointestinal system
  • Liver
  • Bones
  • Kidneys
  • Endocrine glands

This damage affects your immune system, your energy levels, and your overall health.

When would I need detoxification?

You’re exposed to heavy metals, pollutants, and other toxins regularly. You may have been exposed to heavy metals, such as lead and mercury if you:

  • Come into contact with lead-containing plumbing, paints, or soil
  • Eat fish or shellfish contaminated with methylmercury 
  • Breathe contaminated workplace air
  • Are a smoker or exposed to smoke second hand
  • Have dental amalgam fillings
  • Come in contact with cadmium from household products

Suspect heavy metal or other toxin contamination if you have symptoms that don’t respond to other therapies and can’t be linked to a health condition. These include:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Infertility, especially abnormal sperm tests
  • Weight gain or abdominal pain
  • Central nervous system dysfunction
  • Heart problems
  • Anemia

If you suffer from these or any other unusual symptoms or inflammation, give the office a call.

What is involved in detoxification?

Based on your situation, Dr. Rajaratnam provides customized interventions to help detoxify your system. He may suggest chelation therapy, a treatment that enhances the elimination of metals from the body.

Prevention is also important in detoxification. Dr. Rajaratnam recommends you choose mercury-free composite material for fillings and replace existing mercury amalgam dental fillings. He’ll also help you develop a nutrition plan that ensures you’re getting enough trace minerals and limiting your consumption of high-mercury fish to a maximum of one serving per week.

What is chelation therapy?

Dr. Rajaratnam recommends chelation therapy when you’re suspected of having an overload of heavy metals. He customizes the therapy to fit your specific needs. 

It may include glutathione IV therapy and an oral medication known as DMPS that addresses arsenic, cadmium, and mercury toxicity. Other compounds included in chelation therapy include selenium, vitamin C, folate, alpha-lipoic acid, blue-green algae, garlic, and N-AcetylCysteine.

Succimer, or DMSA, another oral medication that addresses mild-to-moderate lead, arsenic, and mercury toxicity is sometimes included as is calcium-disodium EDTA used to help you heal from lead poisoning.
