Chelation Therapy is a safe, effective, and relatively inexpensive treatment to restore blood flow in victims of atherosclerosis without surgery. Chelation Therapy involves the intravenous infusion of a prescription medicine called ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA).
Chelation Therapy is used to reverse symptoms of hardening of the arteries, also known
as atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is caused by multiple complex factors, including abnormal accumulations of metallic elements. The end result is plaque formation within the arteries, which blocks the flow of blood. Plaques are composed of fibrous tissue, cholesterol, and calcium.
Atherosclerosis leads to:
Possible amputation of extremities
Every single study of the use of Chelation Therapy for atherosclerosis ever published, without exception, has described an improvement in blood flow and symptoms.
Chelation Therapy promotes health by correcting the major underlying cause of arterial blockage. Damaging oxygen free radicals are increased by the presence of metallic elements and act as a chronic irritant to blood vessel walls and cell membranes. EDTA removes those metallic irritants, allowing leaky and damaged cell walls to heal. Plaques smooth over and shrink, allowing more blood to pass. Arterial walls become softer and more pliable, allowing easier expansion. Scientific studies have proven that blood flow increases after Chelation Therapy. A complete program of Chelation Therapy involves a broad-based health care program of:
Vitamin and mineral supplementation
Avoidance of tobacco and other damaging habits
Chelation Therapy is among the safest of medical procedures. More than 400,000 patients have received over four million treatments during the past 30 years. Not one death has been directly caused by Chelation Therapy when properly administered by a health practitioner who was fully trained and competent in the use of this therapy. Side effects are possible, as with any drug therapy. Vein irritation, mild pain, headache, and fatigue may occur. These and other minor side effects, if they occur, are easily controlled by adjusting the duration and frequency of treatment, or with the use of other simple measures. Side effects tend to diminish after the first few treatments. Most patients experience few or no side effects.
Any unexplained or persistent symptoms that effect your heart, head, or limbs should be explored for circulatory blockage. See your physician if you have:
Chest pain or leg pain on walking
Shortness of breath
Rapidly failing memory
Yes! Although Chelation Therapy is best utilized to avoid bypass surgery, many patients who have previously undergone one or more bypass procedures, often with little or no benefit, have subsequently benefited greatly from Chelation Therapy. Treatment for each patient must be individualized. If all else fails, including Chelation Therapy, bypass remains available as a last resort.
