How Chelation Therapy Works!!

The aim of chelation is to relieve the body of toxic metals. Chelated toxic metals need to be eliminated, usually via the urine, occasionally also by the bile and stool. This process of detoxification should be well-understood in order to deliver the proper treatment to a patient.

EDTA and other chelating drugs lower the blood levels of metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and zinc by attaching to the heavy metal molecules, which helps the body remove them through urination

Because EDTA reduces the amount of calcium and other unwanted elements in the bloodstream, chelation therapy will help reopen arteries blocked by mineral deposits, a condition called atherosclerosis(calcium being the binding material in plaque) or hardening of the arteries. It has been proven to be very effective and a less expensive alternative to coronary bypass surgery, angioplasty, and other techniques designed to unclog blocked arteries. Due to the low risk and zero surgery, chelation treatments are now being considered as primary care.


Chelation therapy benefits the flow of blood through every vessel in the body, from the largest to the tiniest capillaries and arterioles, most of which are far too small for surgical treatment or are deep within the brain where they cannot be safely reached by surgery. In many patients, the smaller blood vessels are the most severely diseased, especially in the presence of diabetes. The benefits of chelation occur simultaneously from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet, not just in short segments of a few large arteries which can be bypassed by surgical treatment.
Chelation halts the progress of the free radical disease. Free radicals underlie the development of atherosclerosis and many other degenerative diseases of aging. Reduction of damaging free radicals it believed to allow diseased arteries to heal, restoring blood flow. The body’s regulation of calcium and cholesterol is restored by normalizing the internal chemistry of cells.


Having surgery didn’t improve the chances for most patients to live longer, live healthier, live better, or enjoy life more , when the results were statistically analyzed. Most importantly, cardiovascular surgery does nothing to arrest or reverse the underlying disease, which exists in varying degrees throughout the body. It is at best a piecemeal "cure" for a system-wide problem.
Chelation patients are frequently able to return to work and to resume their sports and other activities, without the need to undergo surgery. If they stay on a proper diet, exercise within limits of tolerance, continue to take the prescribed program of nutritional supplements, and receive periodic maintenance chelation treatments (every one to two months, depending on the severity of the underlying medical diagnosis) they can usually go many years without suffering further heart attacks, strokes, senility or gangrenous extremities.
Because the very aging process itself correlates with ongoing free radical damage, it is no surprise that a large variety of symptoms have been reported to improve following chelation therapy. symptoms of arthritis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s , psoriasis, high blood pressure, and scleroderma have all been reported to improve with chelation therapy. In fact, there is no better treatment for scleroderma. Vision has been improved in macular degeneration. Patients generally feel younger and more energetic following therapy, even when taken for purely preventive reasons. In fact, chelation therapy is more desirable for prevention that it is for established disease. Preventive medicine is always preferable to late stage crisis intervention.
Patients who received EDTA chelation therapy had a 90% reduction of cancer deaths. There is a large body of scientific research indicating that free radical damage to DNA is an important factor at the onset of most cancer. Chelation therapy blocks damaging free radicals.
Chelation therapy is now being trialed for alternative treatment for many wide ranging conditions, such as gangrene, thyroid disorders, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, psoriasis, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and the improvement of memory, sight, hearing, and smell. Each set of treatments is designed to target a focused set of toxins. In this way the balance of the bodies necessary chemicals is preserved.
