Chelation therapy is a medical procedure that involves the administration of chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body. Heavy metal toxicity is becoming more prevalent in our society and people are experiencing physical symptoms as a result. Cognitive decline as well as deterioration in mental and physical health are being reported as a result of a burdened system. Chelation therapy was developed to restore normal bodily functions by removing the presence of these heavy metals in the blood.
Chelation therapy is a safe and effective treatment to restore optimal health in cases of heavy metal toxicity. Chelation therapy is used as a treatment for metals including acute mercury, iron, arsenic, lead, uranium, plutonium and other forms of toxic metal poisoning. The chelating agent may be administered intravenously, intramuscularly, or orally, depending on the agent and the type of heavy metal being targeted. Each chelating agent will have their own physical characteristics and biological mechanism of action. Several chelating agents are available, having different affinities for different metals that are being detoxed from the body.
Chelation therapy is extremely safe when administered by trained professionals. In conjunction with a proper diet, healthy lifestyle techniques and natural supplements, patients can achieve optimal health.
Most commonly known for heavy metal detox, Chelation therapy also has various other health benefits. It is an alternative therapy used in cancer treatments, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, peripheral vascular disease, autism, ALS and multiple sclerosis.

During this exceptionally difficult time we have been monitoring closely what the public health officials have been sharing, and keeping that in mind, we are making important changes to the services we are offering at Polo Health.
While the pharmacy will remain open, with regular hours to help serve your prescription refill needs, all non-essential visits have now been moved to phone consults and telemedicine. Our front desk staff will still be available to help support you with supplement refills, and booking those new appointments for you. If you do wish to pick up supplements, we kindly ask that you call ahead so we can get them ready for your pickup. If you are on the Pound-a-Day program, we encourage you to come pick up your weekly B-12 shots so you can take them home and self-administer them, and Dr. Polo and Dr. Kassam will follow up weekly by phone during the duration of your program.
As the situation is changing rapidly, we want to make sure all of our patients are taken care of both physically and mentally. We will reassess and re-evaluate the situation, but as of right now, we are closed until April 1st. If that date needs to be changed, we will update you all. Call in to book phone consults, refill your prescriptions, and pick-up any supplements you may need.
We recognize this is a trying and stressful time, and we urge to focus on your mental well being through the chaos. Our team will still be actively checking social media, and we are here to chat if you need anything.
Dr. Allana Polo
