Getting the Heavy Metal Out: Introduction to Chelation Therapy
Sat, April 22, 2017, 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM CDT
Dentists are literally staring down a major toxin every day in almost every mouth: mercury amalgam “silver” fillings.
And although heavy metals such as mercury create or dramatically worsen an astounding number of illnesses, most patients wind up going to “organ doctors” who haven’t a clue about this, when what they need is to see cause-treating doctors who can reduce the body burden and restore better health.
Treatment with Intravenous Edetate, or certain oral medications (Chelation Therapy) is the only FDA-approved treatment for reducing the body burden of toxic heavy metals. Whether you want to start practicing chelation in your office, or just learn about how it could dramatically help your patients, the International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM) is proud to offer a comprehensive introduction, including information that can help you begin.
Taught by the IABDM’s Dr. John Trowbridge, this one-day course will give you a solid understanding of the science and practice of this remarkably effective treatment for removing toxic metals from the body. Based on guidelines that define the industry standard, the course is designed to provide training that is practical, detailed, and well documented.
