Heavy Metal Detox IV Therapy In Orange County

Heavy Metal Detox IV Therapy can help those who struggle with heavy metal toxicity which triggers various physical issues and conditions.
We encounter toxins everywhere – in the food we eat, medicines, the products we put on our bodies, and even the air we breathe. Many of these toxins are heavy metals like lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium, damaging our bodies when they build up over time. The Heavy Metal Detox IV helps flush toxins out of your body so you can get back to feeling your best!

Heavy metal toxicity can trigger the following autoimmune conditions:

  • Kidney disease
  • Memory Issues
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Thyroid Disorders
  • Various Cancers 
  • Gastrointestinal issues

What is the issue with heavy metals?

Most people assume that toxin exposure only comes from lead paint or construction sites, but heavy metals are all around us. We can absorb them if we eat fish from areas with high mercury levels, inhale cigarette smoke, take herbal medicines that contain heavy metals, use certain cosmetics and dinnerware, and even by drinking water.

Heavy metals can affect our bodies when we are exposed to them in high amounts, either at one time or over time. The heavy metals get lodged in the body’s soft tissues and can begin to impact our organs from our brain, to our liver, lungs, and more.  Four primary heavy metals affect us and they each have a different impact on our bodies. These four are lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium. Below we will go over each heavy metal, how we come in contact with them, and how they impact the body once they enter it. 


Lead poisoning is one of the most well-known heavy metal poisonings due to the high lead content that paint once had. Many painters, welders, or construction workers would get high levels of exposure in old buildings and are at greater risk of this kind of toxicity in general. Lead is stored in the bones and can accumulate in the brain, liver, and kidneys. 

Other than paint and construction sites, lead can be in:

  • Contaminated soil (where there is deteriorating lead paint, near busy roads exposed to leaded gas, or smoke and dust from industrial factories) 
  • Children’s toys
  • Jewelry 
  • Drinking water due to old plumbing lines 
  • Materials used in hobbies like stained glass window-making (which uses lead solders) or glazing and firing ceramics
  • Handling ammunition
  • Refurbishing old furniture or homes
  • Imported candy (lead has been found in some candies from Mexico due to their wrappers, ink, or improperly processed ingredients)
  • Cosmetics (especially those made cheaply) 

When the body accumulates too much lead, blood pressure can rise and the reproductive system can get damaged. Other symptoms include fever, fatigue, vomiting, abdominal pain, joint pain, loss of coordination, seizures, and hallucination. Over time, the toxicity can lead to numbness, anemia, decreased muscle strength, kidney disease, and even brain damage.


The form of mercury determines whether or not it will be harmful. Our body quickly absorbs Methyl mercury in fish or shellfish and stores it in our tissues. This form of mercury can also enter the placenta of pregnant women who ingest contaminated shellfish and fish and can bring harm to the baby. Pregnant women often must refrain from consuming raw fish or shellfish. Elemental (metallic) mercury is also very harmful to the body. This type can get into the body by absorption through the skin and the eyes.

Here are other ways to be exposed to mercury:

  • Dental fillings (current fillings have low levels that are safe enough for most people, but there’s still the risk of ingestion)
  • Landfills that contain batteries
  • Mercury thermometers
  • Broken fluorescent lights (this releases mercury vapor)
  • Burning coal 

Methyl mercury can cause muscle weakness, speech impairment, loss of coordination, and “pins and needles” in the hands, feet, and mouth. Children exposed to methyl mercury in the womb may have brain development issues and problems with their memory, language, attention, and fine motor skills. Elemental mercury, on the other hand, can cause muscle weakness, headaches, poor mental functioning, insomnia, mood changes, and tremors. High levels of exposure can cause kidney issues, respiratory failure, and even death. 


Aresenic is a naturally occurring chemical found in the earth, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. There are two forms of arsenic –organic and inorganic. Inorganic arsenic has higher toxicity levels than the organic form, and the health effects are more severe.

People can ingest inorganic arsenic through contaminated groundwater. It is tasteless, colorless, and odorless, so most people may never know they are consuming it. Private wells have no standards for arsenic levels, so some of them may contain high levels. 

Other sources of arsenic exposure include:

  • Pressure-treated wood (arsenic compounds help keep the wood from rotting and from insects)
  • Seafood 
  • Rice 
  • Rice cereal
  • Mushrooms 
  • Poultry 
  • Some fruit juices 

Long-term exposure starts with the skin, and then lesions and patches on the palms and bottoms of the feet form. Skin cancer often develops next. Bladder and lung cancer can also develop from exposure. Other effects include heart disease, diabetes, and lung disorders. 


Cadmium is present in the air, water, and soil. High levels are mostly in industrial areas or hazardous waste sites. One way that cadmium can enter the body is through cigarette smoke. When smokers inhale the smoke, they also inhale cadmium. Food grown in soil exposed to high levels of cadmium can also carry it.

Cadmium exposure also comes from:

  • Shellfish 
  • Organ meats (like liver or kidneys)
  • Drinking water due to metal water lines
  • Cadmium-plated metal contains (pitchers, bowls, and ice trays)
  • Hobbies like jewelry-making or stained-glass making

Cadmium isn’t as easily absorbed in the body when ingested in food or drinks, but it is in gas or fume form. When cadmium enters the body, your system stores it in the bones, liver, and kidneys. In cases with long-term exposure, cadmium can cause lung damage, kidney disease, and weakened bones. 

How does the Heavy Metal Detox IV Work?

The Heavy Metal Detox IV Therapy flushes the body of heavy metal toxins with the following ingredients: 


EDTA is short for ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and is responsible for flushing out the heavy metals in the body. Binding calcium with heavy metal ions, it turns them into a compound that can be filtered through the kidneys and removed through the urine. It can flush the above metals and any excess iron, copper, or nickel in your system. 


Heparin lowers the blood’s ability to clot and prevents dangerous clots from forming in the blood vessels. It also helps stop the growth of those starting to develop.


Magnesium helps remove toxins stored in the body so that they can be released into the bloodstream and removed by the body.


Potassium also serves as a chelating agent that can also bind to heavy metals in the bloodstream. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps reduce the damage to cells (oxidative stress) while also helping to rescue the levels of heavy metals in the blood, liver, kidney, muscles, and more. It is also an essential antioxidant for the liver, assisting it in processing and eliminating toxins in the body.


B-vitamins are vital for the liver to detoxify the body of heavy metals and other toxins that can be the root of chronic illnesses. They also help improve mood, nerve function, and energy. 

Vitamin B12

Heavy metals can often block the ability of Vitamin B12 to reach the brain. Studies have shown that Vitamin B12 may increase the risk of dementia, impair brain function and increase the risk for neurological disorders. Supplementing with B12 is important to help reverse and restore brain function.  

Sodium Bicarbonate

Sodium Bicarbonate helps to remove uranium from the body. While this heavy metal may not be among the most common, it can still contaminate food or drinking water.

What will the process require?

To ensure that this treatment is a fit for your body’s specific needs in IV Lounge, you will need to set up a consultation with our doctor where you will undergo blood tests to check the level of toxicity in your blood. A variety of factors cause chronic illness, and testing our toxin levels allows us to see whether this may be an underlying issue. Depending on the severity of your toxicity, you may need several IV rounds to flush your system thoroughly.
