Chelation Therapy when compared to bypass surgery is a cost-efficient alternative that is comparatively safe and has been used in the US since the 1940’s. EDTA (usually used as the chelator or binding compound) is a man-made amino acid that is combined with vitamins and minerals and given intravenously.
A Few Indications or Possible Benefits are:
- Reduce/remove hardening of the arteries, atherosclerotic plaques
- Reduce/remove heavy metal toxicity
- Prevent/ reduce blood cholesterol deposits, and levels
- Dissolve/improve intra-arterial clots, and vascular perfusion
- Improves retinopathy, and peripheral neuropathy secondary to diabetes
- Lowers blood pressure by improving vascular wall flexibility
Chelation is given in two different forms—one for treatment of heavy metals and one for cardiovascular health, although each one carries the other benefit. Each therapy is given one or two times per week for thirty or more treatments, depending on your situation. Chelation therapy must be done across several weeks in this manner to minimize the risk of harm to the kidneys, disturbing blood calcium levels..
EDTA as a chelator has been proven to be safe and any side effects can be monitored with bloodwork. The percentage of risk from bypass surgery or angioplasty such as death, stroke, blood clots, MRSA, and down time from the above are far greater than the safety of chelation IV therapy.
