Environment

Environmental toxins such as chemicals and heavy metals can disrupt the function of the body in many ways. Correct diagnosis is crucial, and requires specialist laboratory testing.
Safe and effective removal of toxins is tailored to the individual patient, depending on the type of toxin and the state of health of the organs of elimination.

Chelation

Chelation is a treatment that uses a substance or nutrient which binds to toxic metals in the body and carry them safely out of the body.

The benefit of removal of toxic metals is the elimination of damaging effects of these free radicals. Free radicals damage cells the way rust on your car. In the body the supporting structures and vessels are affected. As free radicals circulate they destroy the cells in their path which result in hardening of the body tissues, abnormal metabolism and interference with growth and repair. 

Oral liposomal delivery of chelating supplements have the advantage of access across the phospholipid bilayers of the cell membranes, organelles including mitochondrial membranes and nuclear membranes. Additionally water molecules cling to the fuzzy surface of the liposome and its payload, forming a cloaking device that masks the molecule from the immune system.
Approved by the US FDA years ago, these microscopic bubbles called liposomes are made of the special cell membrane-specific fatty acids phosphotidylcholine combined with phosphotidylserine. These pharmaceutical-grade molecules have the ability to carry nutrients or drugs into the bloodstream. A person can drink a cocktail containing liposomes and it will appear in the blood stream within minutes.

The drug or supplement payload, carried by these microscopic liposomes, are 'cloaked' with a special coating. This makes them invisible to detection by the bodyʼs immune defenses. The result is a unique, safe and efficient delivery system for medicines and nutrients to reach the cells deep in the body to do their job unnoticed.

Chelation and SNPs

When environmental toxins including pesticides and heavy metals are burdening the body it is due to ionic competition of Sodium, Iodine, Zinc, Copper, Potassium, Magnesium or Calcium, as cofactors needed to activate metabolic pathway enzymes, competing with heavier valence metals like Cadmium, Mercury, Nickel, Aluminium and others. Often there can be attachments or adducts of toxic metals and pesticides onto the DNA strand itself, inhibiting replication, and transcription. Removal of the toxic metal adducts may allow the nutrient metals to restore correct function of the enzymes and of the mechanics of the genetic apparatus.
