Detoxification IV Therapy in Scottsdale, Arizona
Intravenous detoxification or “chelation therapy” is used, albeit differently, by both allopathic (conventional Western) medicine and alternative medicine as a means of purging toxic metals and minerals from the body. Practitioners of chelation therapy argue that it is an effective way of removing toxins and harmful body wastes, as well as helping to prevent or treat atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, and circulation problems.
The most popular form of chelation therapy practiced by alternative practitioners employs a drug called EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid) administered intravenously. EDTA is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of lead and heavy metal poisoning but not for other forms of toxicity or circulatory problems. EDTA works by attaching itself to specific minerals, which are carried out of the body via urinary excretion. DMPS and DMSA are somewhat stronger chelators with different heavy metal affinities.
Benefits of Detoxification IV Therapy
Boosts Immune System
Detoxification IV therapy contains high doses of vitamins and minerals that are essential for immune system function. These include vitamin C, zinc, and selenium. By delivering these nutrients directly into the bloodstream, detoxification IV therapy can help boost the immune system and improve its ability to fight off infections.
Improves Energy Levels
Detoxification IV therapy can help improve energy levels by replenishing the body with essential vitamins and minerals. Many people report feeling more energetic and alert after receiving detoxification IV therapy. This is because the therapy helps the body to eliminate toxins that can cause fatigue and sluggishness.
Enhances Mental Clarity
The vitamins and minerals in detoxification IV therapy can also help enhance mental clarity and focus. This is because they support brain function and neurotransmitter production. Many people report feeling more clear-headed and focused after receiving detoxification IV therapy.
Promotes Skin Health
Detoxification IV therapy can also promote skin health by delivering high doses of antioxidants directly into the bloodstream. Antioxidants like vitamin C and glutathione help to fight off free radicals that can damage the skin and cause premature aging. This can help to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Helps with Weight Loss

Inflammation is a natural response of the immune system to injury or infection. However, chronic inflammation can contribute to a range of health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Detoxification IV therapy can help to reduce inflammation by delivering high doses of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds directly into the bloodstream.
Alleviates Hangover Symptoms
Detoxification IV therapy can also help alleviate the symptoms of a hangover. This is because the therapy helps to rehydrate the body and replenish essential nutrients that may have been lost due to alcohol consumption. Many people report feeling better and more refreshed after receiving detoxification IV therapy for a hangover.
Supports Liver Function
The liver is responsible for filtering toxins and other harmful substances from the body. Detoxification IV therapy can help support liver function by delivering essential nutrients that are needed for detoxification. This can help to improve liver function and reduce the risk of liver damage.

The most common and toxic heavy metals that can poison our systems and lead to fatigue and illness are iron, lead, cadmium, and mercury. Lead and cadmium are common industrial pollutants that also foster free radical activity and poison critical enzymes which repair tissue. Mercury is found in some kinds of seafood, dental fillings, and other environments. Its toxicity can depress the immune system and cause an array of symptoms. Getting the iron, lead, cadmium, and mercury out of the body can be accomplished with chelation therapy.
During the treatment process patients usually undergo between 10 and 20 chelation treatments over a period of weeks or months with each treatment lasting between 1.5 and 3 hours on average.
