This is a process in which EDTA is used as an intravenous infusion. EDTA is a synthetic amino acid that binds heavy metals and holds them tightly so they can be removed from the body.

David J. Blyweiss, MD, founder of Maximum Wellness Center, is celebrated as one of the founding fathers of ‘functional medicine’. He has devoted his career to treating patients who needed relief from chronic medical conditions that did not respond to ‘conventional’ treatments. By practicing a sophisticated convergence of centuries-old ‘eastern’ medicine and contemporary technology-based diagnostics and treatments, he has successfully treated thousands of patients from across the globe. He began utilizing this matrix of systems biology twenty years before it was even recognized.
Dr. Blyweiss began his medical career as a clinical pharmacist in South Florida prior to earning his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 1982. His ‘dual’ background allowed him to appreciate the relevance of conventional pharmaceutical/surgical based treatments in acute medical conditions, as well as to recognize where these approaches fell short in treating the majority of patients who suffered from chronic degenerative diseases whose origins are particular to “modern-day western civilization”.

“Treat the illness, not its symptoms”
Meet The Doctors
Mid 2008, I was not feeling well. My elbows started hurting then my hips starting hurting I just wasn’t myself. I went to a Rheumatologist who did a series of blood tests and a bone scan. The scan indicated that 23 of my joints were symmetrically deteriorating. My physician called me on January 6, 2009 with a misdiagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis and I believed her. Devastation could not even describe how I felt. It got to the point that I could not carry a dish or use a staple remover. She told me it was an auto-immune disease and I would not get better, only go into remission. She gave me a lot of scary medications with lots of frightening side effects. If they worked I would probably still be on them. But I was not feeling any better.
I had a professional colleague who was a functional medicine physician. Dr. David Blyweiss. I was desperate, hated the chronic pain, so I called him in January 2010. He, my husband and I met and discussed my options. The main one was that I would have to make a significant lifestyle change. I gave him all my medical reports and lab work and we discussed the options.
He told me that he would wean me from my medications, put me on a detox program and then he would require a lot of blood work. He told me he wanted to see what vitamins and minerals I was deficient in. No medications to mask my symptoms. He told me I would have to change my lifestyle not just my diet. I discussed this with my family as it was not something I could do without their support. I was so desperate I was ready to do anything. I gave up gluten, dairy and all corn products. He put me on a strict regimen of pharmaceutical supplements and nutrients.
I started his regimen on March 6, 2010. I did not feel better right away. I was cleansing my body while building up what I was missing. I cannot say if it took six weeks or three months before I felt better, but one day I woke up and felt like myself except I was 55 pounds lighter. Dr. Blyweiss had me do another bone scan a year later. I remember the call when he told me all my joints had regenerated. Apparently I did not have RA but an acute episode of inflammatory arthritis.
I was broken and Dr. Blyweiss fixed me. He gave me my life back. I have become a firm believer in functional medicine. Once I start talking about it, I can’t stop! We are so anxious to take pills and not find out the root of the problem that we really aren’t improving our health. I have directed many people to Dr. Blyweiss who now have a new lease on life.
March 6, 2014 will be the anniversary of my new life. I am 58 years young, I am active vibrant and I have kept the same life style because I am healthy.
"Dr. Blyweiss and his staff helped me so much. I went to Dr. Blyweiss for IBS issues. He did a thorough physical exam and lab testing. Come to find out I have several food sensitivities and mineral deficiencies. They put me on a specific dietary, vitamin plan and I feel like never before. They are helpful & informative. I have battled with this for 23 years. I visited several doctors and no one has ever done the testing Dr. Blyweiss performed. I am grateful to have found him. I would recommend his office for any condition. They will get to the bottom of it and you will feel like new. Highly recommend!!!"

This patient was told by his cardiologist in Sao Paulo he needed blood pressure medication and heart surgery ASAP and could not continue his daily swimming, because testing showed lack of blood flow to his heart
Good afternoon .......hope you and the team are well.
Dr. Blyweiss asked me to let him know the outcome of tests on my return to Brazil.
The usual `battery `of blood tests all showed improvements from 6 months ago EXCEPT LDL cholesterol. Since I stopped Lipitor 3 months ago this is not entirely surprising as the stuff certainly lowers LDL cholesterol but at an unacceptable price in terms of overall health! I will continue to seek natural ways to control this but anyway do NOT want cholesterol too low as it is vital for mental health.
My BP is at 120/80 without medication (surprised my Cardio as he prescribed a BP medication ......sadly he is not into alternative healthcare so was underwhelmed by BP control without drugs) I also had a myocardial scintigraphic image exam which apparently measures both at rest and under treadmill stress flow of blood to and from the heart using radioactive IV injections. This test showed `normal` i.e. blood is reaching where it should.
I am pretty certain that chelation has probably reduced coronary blockages. Importantly I feel good and have no `heart` symptoms.
I hope you too continue well and thank you again for your care and advice.

Dirk Parvus, MD
“Balance all hormones to work in symphony”
When Dirk Parvus, M.D., found that he was getting slower despite running marathons every year, he realized that there had to be more to staying healthy than just exercise. That led to a journey of discovery.
Dr. Parvus joins the seasoned MWC medical staff directly from the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, where he helped thousands of patients improve their quality of life with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
With over 40 years of experience working in the medical field, Doctor Parvus is committed to the ongoing process of educating patients through functional medicine which involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease. Dr. Parvus earned his undergraduate, MBA, and medical degrees from the University of the Witswatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. He completed his residency in family medicine at Penn State’s Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
"I had my first visit with Dr. Dirk Parvus 6 months ago. I was experiencing chronic fatigue and had been feeling run down with achy joints, muscle pain and headaches. After my initial 2 hour consultation and some lab work results, it was recommended that I make some lifestyle and nutritional changes as well as getting high dose Vitamin C treatments. Additionally, the doctor put me on a custom BioIdentical Hormone replacement program (BHRT), which I followed with tremendous success. I am happy to say I have not felt this good in years. I am preparing for a 10K run and have lost significant weight and have an enormous amount of energy. To say I am satisfied with this doctor would be an understatement. He helped me change my life!"
- Alaric B.
“Dr. Parvus is a fantastic doctor. You can truly tell that he cares about the people he is treating. His manner and way of interacting with patients is unparalleled. I am so glad to have the privilege of knowing such a wonderful doctor and human being. I have had too much experience with doctors who either don't listen to patient concerns or feelings.....not so with Dr. Parvus, you have his utmost attention at your appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Parvus to anyone. He is a joy to visit as a doctor and wonderful to talk to in any capacity. The world needs more Dr.'s like him, I can't sing his praises enough! Thank you Dr. Parvus!”
“Thanks Dr. Parvus for all of your help, if not for your understanding, compassion and help I would not be here today. I can honestly say that you helped save my life. Thank you for treating me fairly, w/out prejudice and with courtesy and listening to my concerns and questions, as well as, taking the time to address my overall health and well-being. I am truly in your debt and hope that more doctors will walk the path you have in becoming the best doctor I've had the pleasure of visiting, thank you!”
David Webb, D.O.M.
“The proper and consistent application of potent treatment modalities yields superior results against even the most stubborn maladies and aggressive illnesses”
As a pain and injury specialist for over twenty years, Dr. David Webb integrates select cutting edge medical technologies with the ancient wisdom of Oriental Medicine to offer pain free, powerful and highly effective pain and injury treatments. He received his training in Oriental Medicine from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver, Colorado, and established his private practice in 1996.
In addition to becoming proficient in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, Dr. Webb has since become certified in a variety of other healing disciplines. Subsequent to becoming a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, he completed additional training and certification in Acupuncture Injection Therapy and Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) - two powerful treatment modalities used to stimulate rapid recovery from acute injury and chronic pain conditions. He is currently the only certified FSM practitioner in the Ft. Lauderdale area.
Other therapies that Dr. Webb integrates into his practice include Auricular Medicine, homeopathy, tuning fork therapy, cold laser, reiki, iridology, reflexology, biomagnetic therapy, neurohormonal testing and rebalancing, food sensitivity testing and treatment, and diet and nutritional counseling.
He is also an advanced NAET practitioner (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques), and is licensed to perform biopuncture homeopathic injections.
“Symptoms - I have endured severe sole and heel pain for the last 6 years with Plantar Fasciitis in both feet. I’ve seen a podiatrist and recently, a surgeon to review a procedure to remove my tendons from my feet to relieve the pain.
My daily job requires me to walk many miles in heavy boots as well as work on ladders. After about 5 hours of work, I can’t move because of the pain. Elevating my feet in a chair at work between visits to job sites helps, but doesn’t alleviate the pain. And, what boss wants to see an employee doing that?! The pain was severe, limiting my ability to socialize, walk with my wife and our two dogs, even go to the gym – all of which I enjoy doing. I became a cranky husband too.
Acupuncture with FSM - Initial treatment for Plantar Fasciitis, including acupuncture and FSM with Dr. David Webb. I was skeptical, not knowing how this type of treatment could work, yet kept an open mind. I needed help! With just the initial session, I was amazed with the immediate results! I could walk fine, pain free for 2 days. My pain started to come back after performing my regular job duties (walking), although pain was not as severe as onset. With a second treatment completed, the results were the same – pain free for 2 days. My pain started to come back after performing my regular job duties. This time it was ladder work. I continued to feel great, since any alleviation of pain was a positive in the right direction for me.
Dr. HReJoint Formula - Dr. David Webb suggested the supplement Dr. HReJoint as a complement to my acupuncture and FSM sessions.
I was instructed to take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 in the evening. I felt immediate relief with just the first 2! The extra benefit is Dr. HReJoint Formula has also helped alleviate pain in my back tremendously too!”
I was diagnosed as having osteoarthritis in my left knee and herniated discs in my lower back in 2011. I lost weight (50 lbs.), exercised and consumed glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate and acetaminophen tablets. Two trials of steroid injections provided only short term relief. Pain levels slowly crept up to a level of 8 out of 10. I only wanted to move from chair to chair.
I met with David Webb, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, at the Maximum Wellness Center at 3079 E. Commercial Blvd., Suite 201, Fort Lauderdale FL in February 2016. Dr. Webb recommended biopuncture and Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) therapies. On the first visit, biopuncture only was used. Only FSM was administered during the 2nd visit. It was totally painless. Both FSM and biopuncture were administered one week later. Dr. Webb also introduced and recommended that I take an herbal supplement: a joint and back formula devised by Robert Hedaya, M.D. called Dr. H ReJoint. This three part treatment program worked! Prior to my 3rd visit, I was already able to walk distances of one to two miles with very little discomfort. I’ve discontinued taking acetaminophen. I will continue being Dr. Webb’s patient."

"I recently experienced a most incredible Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) and acupuncture treatment from Dr. David Webb! I never even knew the technology existed until I entered the Maximum Wellness Center. It works like a 21st century version of the 'tens' unit - but on a far more sophisticated and effective level. The tiny micro electric current is barely perceptible to the skin, but it is programmed specifically to heal your problem areas deeply and directly. The combination of this new technology with the ancient practice of acupuncture provided me with instant pain relief as well as a general feeling of good energy and well-being. I heard of the Maximum Wellness Center through a friend, and I did my 'homework' before I visited. Dr. Webb is Ft. Lauderdale's only certified FSM practitioner. He is also a Doctor of Oriental Medicine -accomplished in the art of Chinese herbal medicine - and is licensed to provide biopuncture and homeopathic injections. All in all, a very impressive and comprehensive arsenal of get-well protocols! I'll be back every week."
I went to see Dr. Webb looking for a holistic approach to my aching heel. I had developed a heel spur from working long hours on my feet. It started out with minor pain and very quickly progressed into very painful heel pain that many times prevented me from stepping out of my bed in the morning, walking and even missing work. Dr. Webb suggested FSM treatment. He said depending on the gravity of the spur, it would take a few sessions, maybe even 6-7 sessions. I believe in the power of intention. I relaxed myself and told myself that this was going to work. I felt immediate relief on my first visit and after a few days, I was ready to return for my second visit! By my third visit, my pain was gone. I can't tell you how happy I am with the outcome. Dr. Webb is gentle and kind and explains everything before doing anything. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Webb and the FSM treatment. It was worth every dollar!
