Chelation therapy emerged as a treatment for heavy metal poisoning, and like many other medical treatments, additional benefits have been discovered.
For example, Doctors Clinic uses this innovative treatment to reduce the adverse effects of the nearly constant exposure to heavy metals and other toxins.
You’re exposed to heavy metals and other toxins all the time. They’re in the food you eat, the solutions you use to clean your home, even in the air you breathe. These toxins build up in your body, trigger inflammation, and interfere with your overall body function.
Hundreds of physicians around the world have been using chelation therapy for many years. The popularity of chelation has rapidly been increasing because of increased exposure to heavy metals and knowledge about the negative effects it has on your health.
Chelation therapy is an intravenous treatment that delivers ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) into your bloodstream, where it attracts and collects excess toxins, to help your body flush them out with other waste.
EDTA is a man-made amino acid that attracts toxic metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and aluminum. When EDTA encounters such toxic substances, it traps the toxins. Then, the EDTA and the toxins are secreted in your bodily wastes (chelated).
EDTA chelation therapy is a safe and painless IV treatment that Doctors Clinic provides on an outpatient basis. Each treatment runs from 30 minutes to three hours, depending on your specific needs.
Chelation therapy provides a wide range of benefits, including:
Chelation might also help in the reversal of atherosclerosis, the excessive buildup of plaque in the arteries. The theory is that EDTA stimulates parathyroid activity, which redistributes calcium in your body.
Then, the EDTA in chelation therapy attracts the calcium in your arterial plaque and removes it, which helps clear and open your arteries.
