Chelation Maine accepting new patients




Over 80,000 chemicals are in use today in everyday products - many developed after World War II. We know from research and observation that even "low doses" of many chemicals singly or in combination, cause a wide variety of illnesses. Our most vivid, current example are chemically sensitive individuals exposed to chemicals and many of them now present with multiple symptoms from skin disorders to chronic fatigue and poor memory. Chelation Medical Center is able to help many of these Individuals who are suffering from chemical exposures with many diverse and undiagnosed symptoms. But it doesn’t take industrial chemical exposures to cause illness. Indoor air pollution now exceeds outdoor air pollution as a serious medical concern and has a negative impact on our immune system, often leading to a condition commonly called the Sick Building Syndrome. We are exposed to chemicals every day, and the cumulative effect of even low dose exposures can be debilitating causing Multi-system dysfunction that baffles physicians unfamiliar with chemical sensitivity.

In addition to chemicals, other environmental factors can cause illness too. Allergy and sensitivity to foods, molds, pollens, trees, grasses, and other environmental substances can cause many of the same symptoms chemicals cause. Many people present with, digestive disorders, skin disorders, headaches, dizziness, chronic fatigue, heart irregularities, chronic infections, arthritis, muscle pain, colitis/irritable bowel, depression, hyperactivity, learning disorders, mental dysfunction, memory loss, sleep disturbance, hay fever, asthma and the list goes on. Solving the puzzle by taking a thorough history and through specialized laboratory work-ups and skin testing can be a challenge and is extremely rewarding when long-standing illness is relieved by an accurate diagnosis and treatment.

An important diagnostic feature at Chelation Medical Center is the preservative free antigens for skin testing. In most other offices, the diagnosis of allergies and hypersensitivities is made using materials prepared in chemical bases of phenol or glycerin, confusing the results and making chemically sensitive patients even more ill. In other offices, most often, no testing is done for chemical sensitivity at all. For effective diagnosis and treatment, investigations must be directed to identify a patient’s sensitivities to chemicals and other incitants (offending substances).

The medical approach which is concerned with the individual’s reactions to his or her environment is known as Environmental Medicine. Individuals who have become highly sensitive to many substances are said to be "environmentally ill". The goal at Chelation Medical Center is to identify and treat those incitants which are problematic, and if possible, help individuals modify their home and work surroundings to reduce or eliminate elevated chemicals and other adverse environmental conditions.

Other modes of treatment offered at Chelation Medical Center include Intravenous (IV) Chelation and Nutritional therapy. IV Chelation therapy has been used for over forty years to treat lead toxicity, and other heavy metal excess. It has also been recognized to remove atherosclerotic plaques (hardening of the arteries) from the blood vessels in the body, making it a valuable alternative for bypass surgery. Chelation therapy helps angina (heart pain), claudication (leg pain) and brain circulation; it improves circulation in all arteries of the body. It is a safe and effective treatment which is being recognized more and more in the medical literature.

The office of Chelation medical Center, located at 255 Intervale Road, New Gloucester Maine, has been carefully selected to comply with low-toxicity building materials, heating and ventilation. The environment is as chemically pure as possible - even non-toxic cleaning materials are used to insure that chemically sensitive patients are well protected.
