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.
