How to use:
When you first arise skip your first-morning urination. Begin collection with your second urination and collect all urine up to and including the first-morning urination of the following day. Collect each urination in the specimen collection cup then pour the urine into the orange collection container. Keep the orange container in the refrigerator until you are finished with your 24-hour collection.
Place the orange collection container on a level surface and read the volume from the markings on the container. In the collection information section of the requisition form (located in the upper right-hand corner) fill in the date you finished the collection and your height & weight. Check the box marked 24 hours and fill in the total volume collected.
Mix the urine by shaking the orange container for at least 30 seconds, then pour the urine into the specimen vial. Fill the vial up to the top of the label then tighten the screw cap securely.
Fill out a portion of section 3 and all of section 4 of the test requisition form completely and sign it.
Write your name, date of collection, and date of birth on the specimen vial. The test cannot be performed without this information put on the vial. Place the vial into the zip lock bag, then place the bag in the shipping envelope. The specimen is now ready to be shipped to the lab.
After you finish the urine test, start applying 1.5 teaspoons of Detoxacream’s EDTA cream for 90 days, 5 days a week, once a day. After 90 days, repeat the steps for the second test kit. After 3-4 weeks, you’ll receive the second lab report and you can compare the reduction in the heavy metal burden on your body.
**Please administer and send samples within 2 weeks of receiving the kit in order to ensure prompt delivery of lab results**
Q: If I miss a collection during the 24-hour period or have an insufficient volume to ship, can I pour out my sample and start over?
A: Yes, if a collection during the 24-hour period is missed, you will need to recollect. Simply empty the jug, DO NOT RINSE, and start over.
Q: How long is the presence of traces of heavy metal elements, such as Gadolinium, stable in a urine sample? Will it go away over time?
A: Urine samples remain stable for 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator and up to 3-4 months in the freezer.
Q: Are there any known cross-reaction from over-the-counter or alcohol intake that could affect my results?
A: We recommend that all non-essential medications and supplements be avoided prior to collection; fish and shellfish should also be avoided for a week prior to collecting as well. There are no known effects from alcohol intake.
Q: How much information in Section 4 of the requisition form needs to be provided for results reporting?
A: Federal regulations require your Name, Date of Birth, and Gender.
Q: How long are samples stored and in what condition? Can they be retested?
A: Doctor’s Data Lab stores samples for approximately 3 weeks in their industrial refrigerators. Ability to retest depends on the volume and is subject to additional fees.
Q: When applying the cream, what if I miss a day?
A: It’s OK, you can miss a few day or make it up on one of your off days and still have a successful test.
How It Works:
EDTA is a synthetic amino acid that has proven to be the best broad-based heavy metal chelator with very few adverse effects. The half-life of EDTA in the body, via the topical route of administration, can be up to eight hours, and is excreted through feces and urine within 24 hours; almost none of the Detoxacream EDTA is metabolized.
It is strongly advised to utilize a good, natural multivitamin/mineral while chelating. Vitamin/mineral supplementation should be separated from Detoxacream use by 8 hours to prevent removing minerals you are trying to replace. It is very important to drink a good quantity of filtered/purified water during the day to help with the flushing of harmful metals from your body. In the rare case you develop a rash by using Detoxacream, stop using the product and please email or call for a full refund.
It is recommended and safe to use Detoxacream once nightly for good initial detoxification. Depending upon your level of exposure or toxicity, you may need to use a higher dosage for up to 180 days or more. Detoxacream may also be utilized at other times during the day if necessary. Using Detoxacream on a less frequent basis will not cause any problems but it may take longer to achieve the desired results.
A good intestinal cleanse is highly recommended. It is also important to detoxify your liver and kidneys to receive maximum benefit from Detoxacream. In addition to a good cleanse, eat a good whole food diet, while avoiding processed food as much as possible, also promotes efficiency in detoxification. Foods high in unnatural additives, high fructose corn syrup, MSG, sodium or sugar should be avoided.
The traditional method of chelation is done intravenously and involves physician visits. Because of this, chelation is considered expensive and time-consuming, and very inconvenient. Now there is a better way to remove lead that is easy, gentle, effective, and affordable. Detoxacream’s transdermal EDTA chelation cream is a natural way to remove lead and other heavy metal toxins and is safe enough for all ages. Since the vast majority of the EDTA will be broken down and not utilized when taken orally, the topical administration is more effective. This allows it to bypass the gastrointestinal tract altogether, resulting in a very high utilization rate. Topical administration delivery also results in a majority of the EDTA bypassing the liver and kidneys on the first pass, putting less stress on these organs and allowing the EDTA to remain in the body longer, extending the binding effect with the harmful metals. It is always best to consult a practitioner when taking Detoxacream and all nutritional supplements.
