We are all exposed to toxins on a daily basis. There are 3 types of toxins that the body must eliminate:
-Environmental toxins: pollution, auto exhaust, solvents (paint, cleaning products), heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides insecticides, radiation, and inhalants.
-Lifestyle toxins: poor dietary choices (fast foods, fried foods, processed foods, refined sugars), cosmetics, nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, prescription drugs, over-the- counter drugs, artificial food additives, artificial food colorings, artificial food preservatives, meats treated with hormones and antibiotics.
-Internal toxins: Bacterial overgrowth, yeast overgrowth, fungal overgrowth, undigested food, metabolic byproducts of stress or trauma.
Exposure to these toxins on a grand scale is causing a rampant growth of autoimmune diseases, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and unexplained medical illnesses. Toxic build up within the body has also been associated with headaches, joint pain, skin conditions, gastrointestinal disturbances, brain fog, depression, anxiety, and many other symptoms. We offer nutritional programs designed to support the body’s ability to eliminate these toxins, to restore great health and function to the patient.
In some cases, Dr. Ali may determine that chelation therapy will be beneficial. Based on the patient’s medical condition and exposure to environmental factors, Dr. Ali does a comprehensive heavy metal provocative challenge test. This test shows the amount of heavy metals deposited in the fat, bones, muscles, and nervous tissue of the patient. Dr. Ali has treated several patients and has improved their quality of life with chelation, which is not FDA approved. Chelation can be administered orally or intravenously with the use of agents such as EDTA, DMSO, DMSA, etc. We use chelation to remove lead arsenic, mercury, and any other metal toxins from the body.
Here is an example of one of our patients who benefited from chelation:
Mr. A. complained of dizziness, fatigue, chronic pains, and weight loss. Despite having extensive blood work and diagnostic testing done by several specialists, he saw no improvements in his conditions. A urine toxic metal evaluation done by Dr. Ali showed very high levels of lead among other findings. The patient admitted that, as a Marine, he was inhaling fumes of lead while targeting with his gun. After undergoing IV chelation treatments, his lead levels became normal and his conditions improved.
