Chelation Therapy Treatment
Chelation therapy involves the administration of agents that will bind to the heavy metals stored within the body and then escort them out, via the kidneys or Gastro Intestinal tract. The goal of Chelation therapy is to “de-poison”.
The best time to begin Chelation therapy is well before your get sick. But most patients typically become interested in Chelation therapy only when they suffer from an advanced disease state and no other options are available to them,
The most accurate means of assessing the body burden of a given toxic metal would be to biopsy the brain, heart, kidneys, and liver – obviously not practically possible. Instead a “biochemical biopsy” or Hair mineral analysis is carried out.
Ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA), removes metals. It binds avidly to lead and cadmium, less tightly to aluminum and arsenic, and only weakly to mercury. EDTA administered intravenously is an extremely efficient metal chelator.
Standard chelation therapy, as is being practiced over the past 50 years, involves a 2 hour infusion of EDTA bound to magnesium (Mg-EDTA). Included in the IV bag will be vitamin C, vitamins B, and folic acid. Mg-EDTA removes toxic metals, provides anti-oxidant protection and provides vitamin C and magnesium, two key nutrients lacking in patients with cardiovascular disease and hypertension.
Chelation therapy is absolutely safe. The chelating agents that are administered do not stay in the body. They bind their target metals, and then the metal-chelator complex exits the body via the kidneys or Gastro-Intestinal tract. In short, poisons are taken out of the body.
