Chelation Therapy

Chelation is a non-surgical procedure performed in order to improve blood flow through blood vessels and a better flow to vital organs such as heart and brain.
Thanks to this effect on the cardiovascular system, chelation therapy is a helper in the treatment of some medical conditions such as arthritis and cardiovascular disease. It can not only reduce joint pain, but also improve cognitive ability and slow the aging process.

Chelation is a process consisting in opening the vessels, that is, its diameter is increased to facilitate the passage of blood. This process eliminates toxic substances that promotes aging and increase cellular oxidation.

Keeping arteries clean and detoxify the body of toxic minerals such as lead and aluminum is critical because in this way the continuing deterioration of the cardiovascular system, which occurs with the aging process is avoided.

Veins, arteries and capillaries are joining with the passage of time due to the formation of fatty plaques and calcium deposition. However, blood chelation therapy can reverse this process.

What is blood chelation therapy?

In 1938, German researchers discovered a new compound called ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA). This compound has the amazing property of capturing metals and chemical toxins in the bloodstream.

After being captured, both compounds are dissolved and removed from the body through urine and feces.

Blood chelation therapy was approved as a treatment for heavy metal poisoning in 1948, after a number of workers belonging to a lead battery factory was intoxicated, being affected their health and life. Chelation therapy worked allowing many people to recover.

Later, Dr. Clark, belonging to Providence Hospital in Detroit, discovered that EDTA not only eliminates heavy metals but allows the destruction of the calcium plates formed in the blood vessels.

These boards are responsible for the occlusion of the arteries and stroke and myocardial infarction.
Calcium plates are formed when excess blood cholesterol is deposited on the wall of the arteries. Then, cholesterol is oxidized and plaque inflamed. The artery walls become calcified and become rigid.

This rigidity is due to excess of inorganic minerals, especially calcium. This type of calcium can not be utilized by the body and is deposited in soft tissues and arteries.

This is where blood chelation therapy becomes important. Among its main effects are:

  • Support for cardiovascular health
  • Increased mental clarity
  • Improved vision
  • Restored hearing
  • Improved sense of smell
  • Increased level of energy and vitality
  • Increased libido

Thus, a large number of clinical studies and scientific show that the use of a chelating agent such as EDTA is 82% effective in removing plaque from arteries.

How chelation therapy is applied?

Through intravenous injections in the  leg or forearm and always with medical control.

How blood chelation therapy is used to reduce the concentration of heavy metals?

Blood chelation therapy is a natural combination of compounds formulated solely to promote the safe and effective removal of heavy metals. It is designed to protect against damage from free radicals induced by heavy metals with the addition of powerful antioxidants, such as N-acetyl-cysteine ​​and alpha lipoic acid.

EDTA has the ability to bind with almost all metals. EDTA has been approved by the FDA as a treatment for removing lead, mercury, aluminum and cadmium toxicity. It is important to replace the beneficial, such as zinc, copper, iron, cobalt and manganese which bind equally to EDTA minerals.

What are the disadvantages of blood chelation therapy?

It can be a slow process because it requires about 3 to 5 hours, about twice a week to see results

It requires medical supervision

It's a bit expensive, but not so much as a by-pass surgery is the most common treatment option for people who have arteries with some degree of obstruction

If we compare the advantages with the disadvantages, in most cases arterial chelation therapy is a great tool for improving cardiovascular health and prevent complications.

What conditions can be treated with chelation therapy?

  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • ACV
  • Malignancies or cancer
  • Metabolic disorders such as diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Chronic inflammatory processes (arthritis)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Parkinson's disease

Chelation not only improves the symptoms of these conditions, but also prevents the progression to a greater degree of disability.According to Richard Casforf, MD, PhD, Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, chelation therapy can greatly improve people’s quality of life. This is thanks to the improvement in the functioning of vital organs. Examples include improvement in blood pressure, reduction of cramps, decrese of pain, among others.Besides this, chelation therapy reduces medical costs as expenses in bypass surgery are reduced to one tenth. This is the cost of chelation.


✔ Chelation does not provide a cure for any disease, but is suitable for those suffering from diseases or medical conditions related to hardening of the arteries. In these cases, the doctor is the one who performs certain tests to assess the condition of veins and arteries. Then, it is decided whether the patient is a potential patient for chelation or not.

Duration of treatment

Chelation therapy can bring immediate benefits, but are always higher and possible to maintain when it is complemented with lifestyle changes (diet, exercise, etc).

It is also necessary that adequate checks are carried out.

Potential Risks

Chelation removed from circulation certain minerals that are essential for life. Therefore, it is necessary to supplement them. Another risk associated are injuries related to  the application of intravenous injections. However, in most cases, there are no risks that leads to complications.[/accordion]

Who can benefit from blood chelation therapy?

Those with an altered lipid profile like increased blood LDL cholesterol or those who have a family of cardiovascular disease or personal history or who have family members who have died before age 55 with acute myocardial infarction can most benefit from this treatment since they are at increased risk of suffering a cardiovascular event. Those persons who suffer from hypertension or have an increased risk of some sort of poisoning by heavy metals such as those who have dental amalgam fillings can also benefit from this treatment.
