Chelation therapy is a chemical process in which a synthetic solution—EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid)—is injected into the bloodstream to remove heavy metals and/or minerals from the body. Chelation means “to grab” or “to bind.” When EDTA is injected into the veins, it “grabs” heavy metals and minerals such as lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, aluminum, and calcium and removes them from the body.
What is chelation therapy used for?
Chelation is a very effective way to treat heavy-metal poisoning. Injected EDTA binds with the harmful metal and both are then eliminated from the body through the kidneys.
Chelation therapy could also treat atherosclerosis and/or coronary artery disease and offers moderate protection against future cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks, in those with diabetes.
EDTA may act as an antioxidant by removing metals that combine with LDL cholesterol, which can damage arteries. The theory is that when you remove metals that flow freely through arteries (such as copper or calcium), you may slow down diseases such as atherosclerosis.
Many people report less pain from chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma after chelation therapy. The theory is that EDTA acts as an antioxidant, which protects the body from inflammation and protects blood vessels.
How is the chemotherapy process?
When you visit the hospital, we will check your history, Physical examination and the laboratory will be done then consult with the Doctor and the doctor will select the match for you. After that, you can start the process. We will use 45 minutes – 2 hrs. to give the Intravenous fluid chelation and then you can go back to your home or work as normal.
Vitamins and minerals are added to the EDTA solution to help keep them at an optimal level in the body to maintain health.
