Chelation therapy has been around in the U.S. since the 1950s, yet initially discovered in 1935 in Germany. When given by a trained professional by protocol, chelation is a safe, simple and effective way to remove heavy metals as well as other toxins and plaque buildup from the body. Thus, optimizing blood flow and all bodily functions for overall health improvements. Chelation emerged in the U.S. initially as a treatment for strictly heavy metal poisoning, but they quickly saw other medical improvements in those patients.
Daily we are bombarded with toxins from the soil in which your food grew and absorbed, to the air you are breathing and its pollutants, to the water you drink and all the pesticides, hormones and plastics that have runoff into the groundwater supply. These toxins buildup in your body and trigger inflammation, thus interfering with the body’s normal functions.
Hundreds of physicians around the world have been giving chelation treatments for years. It has grown in popularity due to the increasing number of toxins and unusual illnesses and negative effects over the years.
Chelation therapy is an intravenous (IV) treatment that uses ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) to attract and collect toxins in your bloodstream and then flush them out through the kidneys. EDTA attracts toxic metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and aluminum.
Treatments are outpatient and typically take from 30-180 minutes, depending on your individual needs. Some of the many benefits associated with chelation therapy include but are not limited to improved circulation, memory and concentration, and chronic fatigue symptoms. Other improvements noted are reduced blood pressure, normalization of cardiac arrhythmias, warming of cold extremities, reversal of Alzheimer’s symptoms, and post-cataract vision.
Chelation may also help with the reversal of atherosclerosis, plaque buildup in the arteries. The theory is EDTA stimulates parathyroid production, thus redistributing calcium in your body. This gives the EDTA in chelation the chance to attract the calcium in the plaque and remove it. This in turn helps to clear and open arteries.
Most people have a family history to tell as well as their own health events, so we encourage you to schedule a consultation to answer any questions or concerns you may have about chelation. Just give us a call at (806) 355-8263, or go online to schedule an appointment at doctorsClinicAmarillo.com
