Chelation therapy is an intravenous therapy using the synthetic amino acid “EDTA” (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid) to detoxify the body by binding with the toxic metals in the body and carrying them away in the urine and feces. EDTA has the ability to bond with or “hook onto” atoms of calcium, lead, cadmium, mercury, and others as well as some of the trace minerals through the process of chelation.
For more than 40 years chelation therapy has been used successfully for patients with vascular disease such as atherosclerosis as well as heavy metal poisoning. The FDA has approved chelation as the only treatment for lead poisoning. Although EDTA chelation has only been approved for lead poisoning it has proven to be helpful in other conditions associated with heavy metal poisoning.
Improving circulation by the removal of accumulated build up (plaques) that damage the vascular system throughout the body is a primary benefit for patients with heart disease (atherosclerosis), diabetes and other circulatory diseases. During and following chelation therapy, plaques are dissolved VERY SLOWLY and the blood flow from arteries all the way to the smallest capillaries is improved throughout the body.
In addition to EDTA, patients receive vitamins and minerals in their IV solutions that are essential to good health. Patients are EXPECTED to follow a basic program of non-smoking, diet, exercise and vitamin / mineral supplementation. The doctor will discuss the importance of these issues with you during your treatments. All therapy protocols are according to the American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM).
