What is meant by « functional medicine » ?
Functional medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.
Our medical protocols are pre-established written physician authorized procedures or guidelines for medical care of a specified clinical situation, based on patient presentation. They guarantee optimum standardized care leaving zero room for the unforeseen.
At DR. ROZE BIOHEALTH CLINICS, we have researched the best practices around the world and have adopted the SMART protocol designed by IAOMT (The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology). We are now IAOMT ambassadors for the Middle East and all of our biological dentists are certified.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a safe, convenient, and cost-effective way to reduce post-operative pain, promote tissue and bone growth, and reduce healing time in a wide variety of oral and maxillofacial surgical settings.
The special protection measures of the SMART protocol have all been adopted by Dr. Roze & Associates with extreme care and attention to detail:
- A dental dam is used in the patient’s mouth to ensure that no accidental ingestion of mercury vapor can occur. The dam is a special Nitrile dam that cannot be penetrated by mercury vapor.
- A high-volume air filtration device – completed with a special “nozzle” is placed as close as possible to the oral cavity. The air filter is equipped with special, industrial grade filters specifically design to capture mercury. The nozzle works as a vacuum cleaner trapping any mercury vapor that is released from the amalgam.
- Oxygen is delivered to the patient via a nasal mask, the patient breaths oxygen throughout the procedure to avoid inhaling any mercury vapor or amalgam particles.
- Hair/head and body coverings are utilised.
- Once removal of the amalgam is complete, the patient will rinse with a slurry of activated, absorbent charcoal to collect any particles.
- The amalgam is removed in a single large piece as we use thin drills to separate the tooth from the filling so we don’t actually “drill” the amalgam, thus reducing contact, heat and mercury vapor.
- The amalgam is safely disposed in mercury-contaminated containers.
- Clothing, equipment and all surfaces and flooring are thoroughly cleaned with special removal chemicals.
Heavy metals are are elements that are naturally found in the earth. They’re used in many modern-day applications, such as agriculture, medicine, and industry. Your body even naturally contains some. Zinc, iron, and copper, for example, are necessary for regular body function, as long as they aren’t present in toxic amounts.
Heavy metal poisoning occurs when your body’s soft tissues absorb too much of a particular metal.
The most common metals that the human body can absorb in toxic amounts are:
The heavy metals most commonly associated with poisoning of humans are lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium. Heavy metal poisoning may occur as a result of industrial exposure, air or water pollution, foods, medicines, improperly coated food containers, or the ingestion of lead-based paints.
Common symptoms across several types of heavy metal poisoning include:
- Abdominal pain
- Shortness of breath
- Tingling in your hands and feet
Children with heavy metal poisoning may have unusually formed or weakened bones. Pregnant people may also have a miscarriage or deliver prematurely.
Doctors can usually check for heavy metal poisoning with a simple blood test known as a heavy metals panel or heavy metal toxicity test.
To do the test, they’ll take a small blood sample and test it for signs of heavy metals. If you have symptoms of heavy metal poisoning, but your blood test only shows low levels, you doctor might do some additional testing.
These may include:
- Kidney function tests
- Liver function studies
- Urine analysis
- Hair analysis
- Fingernail analysis
- For mild cases of heavy metal poisoning, just eliminating your exposure to heavy metals can be enough to treat the condition. Depending on the underlying cause, this might mean taking some time away from work or changing your diet.
Your doctor can give you more specific recommendations on how to reduce your exposure.
- For more severe cases, the standard treatment is chelation therapy. This involves giving medication, either through a pill or injection, that binds to the heavy metals in your body.These medications are known as chelators. As they bind to the metals, chelators help to usher them out of your body as waste
Heavy metal poisoning is rare, but if you do develop it, chelation therapy is usually an effective treatment.
If you’re concerned about heavy metal poisoning, there are a few steps you can take to reduce your exposure to heavy metal poisoning:
- Ensure your workplaces follows OSHA guidlines.
- Limit your consumption of fish known to contain higher levels of mercury.
- Have your home tested for lead if it was built before 1978.
- Only purchase supplements and spices from trusted, high-quality sources.
