Chelation Therapy.


Chelation Therapy offers new hope! Intravenous Chelation Therapy, a simple office procedure using ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) reverses and slows the progression of atherosclerosis and other age-related and degenerative diseases.

Heart attacks, strokes, leg pain and gangrene can be avoided using this therapy. Need for bypass surgery and balloon angioplasty often disappears after chelation.

Research also shows that Chelation Therapy acts as a preventive treatment against cancer.Chelation Therapy is a safe, effective, and less costly alternative to bypass surgery or angioplasty and stents. EDTA Chelation Therapy, administered by a properly trained physician in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, diet, and nutritional supplements, is an option to be seriously considered by persons suffering from coronary artery disease, cerebral vascular disease, brain disorders resulting from circulatory disturbances, generalized atherosclerosis and related ailments which can lead to senility, gangrene, and accelerated physical decline.

What is Chelation Therapy? Chelation is a treatment by which an amino acid (EDTA) is slowly administered to a patient intravenously over several hours, prescribed by and under the supervision of a licensed physician. The EDTA infusion bonds with unwanted metals in the body and quickly carries them away in the urine.

Abnormally situated nutritional metals, such as iron, along with toxic elements such as lead, mercury and aluminum are easily removed by EDTA Chelation Therapy.Chelation patients are frequently able to return to work and resume 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 or 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.

What does it feel like to be chelated?

Being chelated is quite a different experience from other medical treatments. There is no pain, and in most cases, very little discomfort. Patients are seated in reclining chairs and can read, nap, watch TV, or chat with other patients during treatment. If necessary, patients can walk around. They can visit the restroom, eat and drink as they desire, or make telephone calls. Some patients even run their businesses by telephone or computer while receiving Chelation Therapy.

Are there risks or unpleasant side effects?

EDTA Chelation Therapy is relatively non-toxic and risk-free, especially when compared with other treatments. Patients routinely drive themselves home after chelation treatment with no difficulty. The risk of significant side effects, when properly administered, is less than 1 in 10,000 patients treated. Chelation Therapy is at least 300 times safer than bypass surgery.

Occasionally, patients may suffer minor discomfort at the site where the needle enters the vein. Some temporarily experience mild nausea, dizziness, or headache as an immediate aftermath of treatment, but in the vast majority of cases, these minor symptoms are easily relieved.

Chelation is beneficial in treating many diseases

While there is no scientific evidence that chelation is a cure for these diseases, symptoms of arthritis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, psoriasis, high blood pressure, and scleroderma have all been reported to improve with Chelation Therapy. Vision has also been restored 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 than it is for established disease. Preventive medicine is always preferable to late stage crisis intervention.

A recently published article from the University of Zurich in Switzerland reported an 18-year follow-up of a group of 56 Chelation Therapy patients. When comparing the death rate from cancer with that of a control group of patients who did not receive Chelation Therapy, the authors found that patients who received EDTA Chelation Therapy had a 90% reduction of cancer deaths. Epidemiologists from the University of Zurich reviewed the data and found no fault with the reported facts or the conclusions.

The Complete Chelation ProgramYour lifestyle counts. Chelation Therapy is only part of the curative process. Improved nutrition and lifestyle are absolutely imperative for lasting benefit from chelation treatments.

Chelation is not in and of itself a “cure-all”—it merely reduces abnormal free radical activity and removes unwanted and toxic metals, allowing normal healing and control mechanisms to come in to play. Healing is thus facilitated, allowing health to be restored with the help of applied clinical nutrition, antioxidant supplementation and improved lifestyle. A full program of Chelation Therapy involves all of these factors. Chelation Therapy is also compatible with other forms of therapy, including bypass surgery.

If cardiovascular drugs are needed, they can be taken with chelation with no conflict.Nutritional SupplementsA scientifically balanced regimen of nutritional supplements reinforces the body’s antioxidant defenses and should include vitamins E, C, B1, B2 B3, B6, B12, PABA, beta carotene, and coenzyme Q10, and others. A balanced program of mineral and trace element supplementation should also include calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, vanadium, and chromium. The exact prescription for nutritional supplements is determined individually for each patient, based on nutritional assessment and laboratory testing.Destructive Habits

It is important to eliminate the use of tobacco. This applies to cigarettes, pipe tobacco, cigars, snuff or chewing tobacco. It has been a consistent observation that patients who continued to use tobacco following chelation will experience less improvement and for a shorter time in comparison to non-smokers.

Relatively healthy adults are often able to tolerate the moderate use of alcoholic beverages without generating more free radicals than they can detoxify. Anyone who drinks alcoholic beverages excessively risks harmful free radical damage. Victims of chronic degenerative diseases should minimize the consumption of alcohol.

Exercise

Finally, sustained physical exercise is very helpful. Even a brisk 45-minute walk several times per week will help to maintain the health benefits and improved circulation resulting from Chelation Therapy. Lactate normally builds up in tissues during sustained exercise, and lactate is a natural chelator produced within the body.
