Chelation therapy is a medical treatment that involves the use of chelating agents, which are chemical compounds that bind to and remove heavy metals and other toxins from the body. The most commonly used chelating agent is EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid).
The process of chelation therapy typically involves the intravenous (IV) administration of a chelating agent, which is infused into the bloodstream. The chelating agent binds to heavy metals and other toxins, such as lead, mercury, and iron, and removes them from the body through the kidneys in the urine. The treatment typically takes an hour, and may be repeated several times over the course of several weeks or months.
Chelation therapy is primarily used to treat heavy metal toxicity, such as lead and mercury poisoning, but it can also be used for other conditions such as cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease and some types of cancer, but it’s not FDA approved for these conditions.
There are potential side effects of chelation therapy, such as nausea, vomiting, headache, and allergic reactions. It is important to have a physician monitor the patient during the therapy and check for any signs of adverse reactions.
What are the benefits of Chelation Therapy?
Chelation therapy is primarily used to treat heavy metal toxicity, such as lead and mercury poisoning, but it is also believed to have potential benefits for other conditions, although not widely accepted by mainstream medicine, these include:
- Cardiovascular disease: Chelation therapy is believed to improve cardiovascular health by removing excess iron and other heavy metals from the bloodstream, which may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease.
- Alzheimer’s disease: Chelation therapy is believed to be beneficial for patients with Alzheimer’s disease by removing heavy metals such as aluminum, which may contribute to the development of the disease.
- Cancer: Some studies suggest that chelation therapy may have potential benefits in cancer treatment by removing heavy metals and other toxins from the body, but more research is needed to confirm these findings.
- Diabetes: Chelation therapy is believed to be beneficial for patients with diabetes by removing heavy metals such as lead and cadmium, which may contribute to the development of the disease.
