Heavy metal testing is a laboratory procedure used to monitor, detect, and screen for unusually high levels of heavy metals in your bloodstream. If you work around or with heavy metals, or your Turtle Healing Band Clinic provider suspects you’ve been exposed to heavy metals, they might recommend this type of testing.
Symptoms of heavy metal poisoning that may indicate a need for testing include:
You might also benefit from heavy metal testing if you regularly experience numbness or tingling sensations in your hands and feet.
At Turtle Healing Band Clinic, the team performs heavy metal testing on-site at their state-of-the-art facilities. To conduct a heavy metals panel, your provider measures the specific quantity of toxic metals found in your blood, urine, or a piece of hair.
The team offers different groupings of heavy metals testing, as well as individual panels capable of targeting specific elements. The most common heavy metals testing panel looks for three specific metals: lead, mercury, and arsenic.
Your doctor determines what type of heavy metals to test for after conducting a physical exam and asking you a series of questions about your symptoms and work habits.
At Turtle Healing Band Clinic, the team offers three types of heavy metal testing.
IV infusion heavy metal testing involves your Turtle Healing Band Clinic provider drawing a sample of your blood and sending it to a laboratory for further testing. After obtaining the results of your test, your doctor discusses your results with you and develops a plan to cleanse and detox your body.
A stool collection heavy metal test takes place at home. During this test, you collect a sample of your stool using a sterile container. You bring your sample to Turtle Healing Band Clinic, and the team sends it to a laboratory for further testing.
If you’re experiencing symptoms of heavy metal poisoning and the team suspects you’re allergic, they might recommend MELISA testing. This test evaluates a sample of your blood to determine if you’re allergic to metals such as mercury, gold, palladium, or uranium.
