Metal Sensitivities

Introduction

We are exposed to small amounts of metals on a daily basis, from dental fillings to cosmetic products that have a metal based preservative. Constant exposure to these foreign materials can lead to an ongoing immune response and chronic inflammation in patients with hypersensitivities. In many cases these exposures do not cause a problem; however, metal exposure can cause immune up-regulation if the individual has a hypersensitivity.

A New Scientific Approach to Metal Hypersensitivities

MELISA testing determines if there is an underlying metal hypersensitivity that could be causing health problems. Treatment for exposure to metals can be as simple as avoiding the particular product that is causing the reaction. In more severe cases it may be necessary to remove dental work or surgical implants if they are made of a metal that elicits an immune response.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been seeing Dr. Jon for 11 years. When I began seeing him, my spine curved in the opposite direction of how it should. It is now curving in the right direction. Dr. Jon is extremely knowledgeable about chiropractic. He is holistic in his approach to better health. I highly recommend Dr. Jon."
