Chelation is a chemical process in which metals or minerals (calcium, lead, mercury, arsenic, aluminum, etc.) bond to an amino acid (EDTA – Ethylene Diamine Tetraacetic Acid) are removed from the bloodstream – then carried away in the urine. It is used to reverse and slow down the progression of atherosclerotic heart disease, hardening of the arteries, as well as other age-related and degenerative diseases. In many cases, heart attacks, strokes, leg pain and gangrene are helped or avoided using IV Chelation Therapy.
EDTA was first introduced in the US (1948) as a treatment for industrial workers who suffered from lead poisoning in a battery factory. Next, the US Navy supported chelation treatment for sailors who absorbed lead while painting government ships and dock facilities. In fact, chelation remains the treatment-of-choice for lead poisoning, even in children who have toxic deposits of lead due to toys, cribs or walls with leaded paint.
EDTA Chelation Therapy is an intravenous procedure, which is administered by a trained Medical Doctor – right in the office. It is relatively non-toxic, risk-free and without pain or discomfort. Patients are seated in comfortable reclining chairs, where they can read, eat, chat, watch TV, do needlework or use their cell phones. Chelation therapy usually consists of 20 to 50 separate infusions, depending on each patients’ health status. Patients regularly drive themselves home after their 2-hour treatment without difficulty.
Chelation Therapy may be an option for those suffering with coronary artery disease, cerebral vascular disease and generalized hardening of the arteries. Symptoms improve, blood flow to diseased organs increases, need for medication often decreases and the quality of life dramatically improves. A healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition, antioxidant supplementation, physical activity and the elimination of destructive habits (tobacco and excessive alcohol) is vital for chelation treatment success, both short and long term.
