Chemical and Heavy Metal Toxicity Treatments Near Reno

“Reno’s Best Toxicity Treatment Center”

At Sierra Integrative Medical Center, we know metal and chemical toxicity can be especially taxing on one’s health and well-being. Not only can they cause a wide range of symptoms—from muscle weakness and constipation to sleep problems and high blood pressure—but their effects can last over an exceedingly long period of time. What’s more, toxicity cases can often be misdiagnosed and left untreated entirely, enabling exposure to the harmful elements that caused it to persist, leading to even more severe symptoms. 

Causes of Toxicity

Chemical and metal toxicity can be caused in a wide variety of ways. You might consume various metals or chemicals from eating contaminated food or absorb them through your skin, or even inhale them from smoke or other fumes at an industrial site. 

Usually, however, heavy metal and chemical poisoning occurs from prolonged exposure, such as from working near hazardous waste, drinking contaminated water, or from living in a home with high levels of toxic metals or chemicals.

Whether you know your symptoms were caused from exposure to metal or chemical agents, or you suspect that they are, we can help identify the cause, and help to remedy it completely.

How We Treat Toxicity, Differently

Sierra Integrative Medical Center is proud to offer professional Chelation Therapy for heavy metal toxicity in Reno. When heavy metals like lead, mercury, iron, and arsenic build up in your body, they can be toxic. Chelation therapy is a unique FDA-approved treatment that uses medicine to remove these metals in your blood. Administered intravenously, “chelator drugs” attach to the metals in your system, and collect them into a single compound. From there, they’re filtered through your kidneys and released in your urine.

Have chemical toxicity? We can help with that too. Chemical toxicity can be very dangerous to human health and cause a vast array of debilitating symptoms after prolonged exposure. Whether you’re experiencing cardiovascular disorders, neurological problems, brain disorders, or something else entirely, we can help determine the underlying cause of your toxicity symptoms—and the chemical(s) that caused it—and help detox your body through various medical treatments. 

What Makes Us Different

At Sierra Integrative Medical Center, we specialize in treating hard to diagnose and difficult to treat cases—especially those caused by heavy metal and chemical poisoning. By taking a whole body approach to treatment, we’ll look at your medical history, risk factors and living environment into account when diagnosing your condition. From there, we’ll dive deep into all the known metals and chemicals that could be causing your symptoms, and, based on our findings, develop an individualized treatment plan to safely eliminate them from your body. 

We can also give you more specific recommendations to reduce your exposure, and follow up your treatment with other alternative health-based treatments to help you recover fully.

"If I hadn’t found the Sierra Integrative Medical Center, I’m not sure where my life would be. If the physicians at SIMC didn’t care so much about their patient’s welfare, I’m not sure what I would’ve done. At the SIMC I found healing, and many friends who had experienced the same things I had. Now I lead a normal life. And I know I’m not the only one,I’ve seen many people healed at SIMC.If you would like to talk to me further regarding the SIMC and what the wonderful people there have done for me, please feel free to contact me. Good luck in your quest for healing."

"During the fourth week, I could walk without a wheelchair. When I returned home I continued to improve. Not only could I put on shoes but at Christmastime that year I wore heels! It was nothing short of a miracle. I also achieved my personal goal of walking on the beach with my daughter, holding her hand. That thought still brings me to tears. I wake up each morning and wonder if my recovery will hold–and it has. Today I clean and cook and run a daycare. I bicycle eight to twelve miles. I went from being a walking zombie to being pain free and enjoying life. I believe in the Clinic. I have my life back, thanks to the SierraIntegrative Medical Center."
