A short history:
The medical clinic was founded by Dr. Ray & his wife/nurse Janet in 1993 as Environmental Health Care Maine. Starting as a home office in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, we eventually moved to an office in Westbrook, Maine. In 2001 the business was renamed to Environmental Health & Complementary Medicine and was moved to more centralized facilities in Gray, Maine. In 2008 we became known as Chelation Medical Center, LLC., and recently moved the office to New Gloucester, Maine.
Even before entering medical school, Dr. Ray and Janet recognized the role environmental factors played in health and disease. Today's research is confirming that early concept to be valid. We continue to offer cutting edge medical services and products consistent with the Hippocratic Corpus: "First do no harm... to abstain from whatever is deleterious..... will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel", and as spoken by Thomas Edison in 1903: "The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease".
If you are a person interested in alternative ways to treat or prevent diseases, we are here to work with you in achieving optimal wellness. At Chelation Medical Center, Dr. Psonak and the staff consider you and your body as an integrative whole composed of body, mind and spirit, and takes a holistic view to the integrative ways that the body works. Specialized lab tests and innovative treatments characterize the practice. Patients are helped with a wide range of symptoms; However, not only do we treat the symptoms, but look for the root cause of your problem(s). The immune system and other systems of the body are looked at as an integrative whole. Care is especially given to the allergic and/or sensitive patients who react to many incitants in their environment, from fragrances and chemicals to pollens, dander and foods. The office is environmentally friendly and kept fragrance free. A unique technique of allergy testing called Provocative / Neutralization or P/N can be done for individuals with allergies to foods, pollens and molds. In this way, no build up over months or years on allergy shots are necessary and relief from symptoms is more immediate. Specialized tests are done for diagnosis of Candida, leaky gut syndrome, sensitivities to foods, casein (from milk), gluten (from grains), pollens, dust, mites, etc. We also examine amino acids, hormones, neurotransmitters, cytokines, and check for toxic metals as needed.
Patients are checked for heavy metal toxicity through IV (Intravenous), rectal suppositories, or oral chelation if heavy metals are suspected. IV therapy is the treatment of choice for patients with toxicity from toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum, etc. Toxic heavy metals can affect patients causing them to suffer from circulatory problems, neurological diseases, metabolic deficiencies, diabetes, migraine headaches, Parkinson's and others. IV therapy is also used with alternative Cancer therapies.
