WHAT IS CHELATION THERAPY?
Chelation therapy is a highly effective treatment for clearing heavy metals, excess calcium, and artery-damaging chemicals from the bloodstream. Although it was first used to treat heavy metal poisoning, chelation has since proven valuable for the treatment of heart disease and other circulatory disorders.
HOW DOES CHELATION THERAPY WORK?
Chelation involves the intravenous administration of a powerful antioxidant called ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). EDTA enters the bloodstream and latches onto heavy metals such as lead, iron, and cadmium that can cause free radical damage to the arteries. By binding to these heavy metals and carrying them out of the body through the urine, EDTA reduces the body’s toxic metal burden and helps slow the process of atherosclerosis.
EDTA also removes excess calcium from artery walls, making them more responsive and better able to dilate. Since calcification of the arteries is a major factor in atherosclerosis, this is yet another way in which chelation restores the integrity of arteries and enhances blood flow. As an added benefit, EDTA chelation has blood-thinning effects and discourages the formation of potentially dangerous blood clots that can cause a heart attack or stroke.
During treatment, which lasts one-and-a-half to three hours, you relax in a recliner while EDTA is administered slowly through an IV. A complete course of EDTA chelation therapy consists of about 30 treatments, usually done one to three times per week.
CHELATION THERAPY ENHANCES BLOOD FLOW
Atherosclerosis, the narrowing and stiffening of arteries due to the accumulation of plaques, is a primary cause of heart attack and stroke. What if there was a nonsurgical therapy that could slow the process of atherosclerosis and restore healthy circulation? Wouldn’t this be preferable to the risk and expense of angioplasty and bypass surgery? The good news is that EDTA chelation is such a therapy. It is a proven means of enhancing arterial health and boosting circulation.
WHAT CONDITIONS BENEFIT FROM CHELATION?
Virtually any condition in which atherosclerosis or poor circulation are contributing factors can benefit from chelation. Here is just a partial list:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Intermittent Claudication
- Memory Disorders
- Diabetic Complications
- Peripheral Neuropathy & Vascular Disease
- Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Slow Healing Wounds
