A short history:
The medical clinic was founded by Dr. Ray & Janet Psonak in 1993 as Environmental Health Care Maine. Starting as a home office in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, we eventually moved to an office in Westbrook, Maine. In 2001 the business was renamed to Environmental Health & Complementary Medicine and was moved to our current location in Gray, Maine. In 2008 we became known as Chelation Medical Center, LLC.
Even before entering medical school, Dr. Ray and Janet recognized environmental exposures played a significant role in health and disease. Dr. Ray was invited to become a member of a group of alternative medicine doctors called the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), formerly recognized as the Society for Clinical Ecology. As research is demonstrating today that early concept is now being shown to be true. We continue to offer cutting edge complementary alternative medicine services and products consistent with the Hippocratic Corpus: "First do no harm... to abstain from whatever is deleterious..... will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel"
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease". (Thomas Edison 1903)
Are you interested in alternative treatments for diseases? Here at Chelation Medical Center, Dr. Psonak looks at the whole person from a holistic medicine perspective and the integrative ways that the body works. Advanced laboratory tests and innovative treatments characterize the practice. Patients are helped with a wide range of symptoms. Patients are checked for heavy metal toxicity through IV, oral or rectal chelation if heavy metals are suspected. IV Chelation therapy is the treatment of choice for patients with toxicity from heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, aluminum, etc., affecting patients suffering from circulatory problems, neurological diseases, metabolic deficiencies, diabetes, migraine headaches, Parkinson's and others. IV therapy is also used with cutting edge alternative Cancer treatments.
The immune system and other systems of
the body are looked at as an integrative whole. Care is especially given
to the allergic and/or sensitive patients who react to many incitants in
their environment, from fragrances and chemicals to pollens, dander and
foods. We offer an environmentally friendly office and keep it fragrance free. A
unique technique of allergy testing called Provocative Neutralization
or P/N can be done for individuals with allergies to foods, pollens and
molds. In this way, no build up over months or years on allergy shots
are necessary and relief from symptoms is more immediate. Specialized
tests are done for diagnosis of Candida, leaky gut syndrome,
sensitivities to foods, casein (from milk), gluten allergy (from grains),
pollens, dust, mites, etc. We also examine amino acids, hormones,
nerotransmitters, cytokines, and toxic metals.
