EDTA Chelation Therapy
EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid) is a man-made amino acid with an affinity for toxic metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminum. When EDTA encounters such toxic substances, the material is sequestered, and then secreted in bodily wastes (“chelated”). Chelation has been used by hundreds of physicians around the world for many years and has many different uses. Because of increased exposure to heavy metals, the popularity of chelation has rapidly been increasing.
Chelation also aids in the reversal of atherosclerosis – the excessive buildup of plaque in the arteries. The theory is that EDTA stimulates parathyroid activity in redistributing calcium in the body in which the calcium in the arterial plaque is removed by way of a series of intravenous treatments. EDTA chelation therapy is a safe and painless IV treatment that is administered on an out-patient basis. Each treatment runs from 30 minutes (often called European Chelation) to 3 hours (American Chelation).
Here are just a few of the many benefits of chelation:
• Improved circulation
• Reduced blood pressure (if elevated)
• Normalization of cardiac arrhythmias
• Fewer excessive heart contractions
• Reversal of Alzheimer’s symptoms
• Cold extremities warmed
• Improvement in chronic fatigue syndrome
• Improved memory and concentration
• Post-cataract vision improved
