Chelation therapy is a process that cleans the arteries by using intravenous chelating agents along with dietary supplements. Lifestyle changes that focus on diet, exercise and stress reduction are also implemented.
The term ‘Chelation’ means “combining with metal.” The major chelator used is ‘EDTA’, a synthetic amino acid, which removes toxic heavy metals from the body by stuicking to them and removing them through the kidneys. ‘EDTA’ is non-toxic when used properly and according to the guidelines of the American Board of Chelation Therapy. ‘EDTA’ also sticks to calcium which builds up as plaques on the walls of the arteries.
Chelation therapy is a world-recognized treatment for heart arrythmias as well.
Chelation therapy can treat and reverse degenerative illnesses also. However, Chelation therapy is mainly used to treat heavy-metal toxicity and cardiovascular disorders like hardening of the arteries and high blood pressure.
Chelation therapy involves intravenous injection of ‘EDTA’ into the blood in sessions that last three to four hours. A series of chelation treatments usually include twenty to thirty treatments.
