What is Chelation?
Chelation can control high inflammation and cholesterol levels, cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and more. Heavy metal poisoning is caused by the accumulation of certain metals in the body due to exposure through food, water, industrial chemicals, or other sources.If your body's soft tissues accumulate too much of these substances, the resulting poisoning can cause serious health problems. Lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium are the metals most commonly associated with heavy metal poisoning.
Lead Poisoning Overexposure can lead to high blood pressure and damage to your reproductive organs.
Mercury Poisoning It’s possible to experience lung damage, brain damage, vision problems, skin changes, and gastrointestinal problems.
Arsenic Poisoning Overexposure can cause neurological problems, gastrointestinal issues, cancer, and low blood pressure.
Cadmium Poisoning You may experience decreased lung and kidney function.
This process is known as chelation.Chelation therapy can be used to treat cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and fibromyalgia.
Chelation therapy involves substances known as chelators. These substances bind to heavy metals and transport them out of the body.
This therapy is effective safe way to remove harmful metal toxins as a it is non-invasive and protects your organs from damage due to heavy metal deposition.
A chelating agent is introduced into the body through intravenous (IV) drip. Once the chelating agent enters the blood steam, it binds with certain molecules (such as metals or mineral) and is removed from the body through urination.
One of the most common chelating agents used in chelation therapy is ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA). EDTA is known to remove substances such as lead, iron, copper, and calcium from the blood. Some also suggest that EDTA can act as an antioxidant and protect against the damaging effects of chronic inflammation.
To that end, chelation therapy is also used to treat osteoarthritis and other inflammation-related conditions. Since calcium deposits are found in artery-clogging plaques, chelation is one of the alternative treatments to treat atherosclerosis.
What you experience while chelation therapy
An amino acid, or “chelating agent,” known as EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) is administered into a patient intravenously (IV).
EDTA works by binding salts to molecules (toxic heavy metals) in the blood. The chelation agent adheres to the toxins in the body, which is then flushed out via urine.
