Chelation therapy is used to remove heavy metals from the blood. When metals like lead, mercury, iron, and arsenic build up in your body, they can be toxic. Chelation therapy is a treatment that uses medicine to remove these metals so they don't make you sick.
Since the 1960’s, our exposure to heavy metal toxins has increased dramatically and almost every day we are exposed to heavy metal toxins in the air we breathe, the water we drink, or the food we eat. Most healthy people can clear these toxins but people chronic immune deficiencies or people working in certain professions with increased exposure may not be able to clear these toxins and over time the heavy metals can accumulate causing symptoms that are associated with other health conditions.
Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity include:
Nausea and vomiting
Impaired cognitive function including forgetfulness and confusion
Mood swings, depression or anxiety
Fatigue and chronic malaise
Chelation therapy helps restore the body’s homeostasis by removing the build-up of heavy metals including mercury, aluminum, arsenic, cadmium and lead which can cause short-term and long- term health problems. The symptoms of metal toxicity are sometimes misdiagnosed as autism, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression or multiple sclerosis.
Heavy metal toxicity diagnosis can be made by testing the blood, urine, hair and nails. EDTA, a man made synthetic amino acid is administered into the patient’s veins where it attached to the heavy metals and together they are eliminated through the urine.
Possible benefits of chelation therapy
Improved cardiovascular health
Improved cognitive function
Reduced pain and swelling due to inflammation
Due to the potential side effects, chelation therapy should only be performed by a trained physician. The most common side effect is a burning sensation at the injection site but this is usually mild and resolves itself quickly. Other possible side effects include vomiting, dizziness, fever, headaches, low blood sugar and changes in blood pressure. EDTA can also bind to vitamins and minerals and your physician may give you large doses of both following chelation therapy to avoid any vitamin or mineral deficiencies.
