Calcium EDTA chelation, otherwise known as (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) and approved by the FDA for the removal of lead, is a chelating amino acid substance that binds lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and other toxic metals.
Once administered intravenously, calcium EDTA chelation scavenges for minerals and metals in order to excrete them through the urine, skin, liver, colon, kidneys, and sweat detoxification pathways.
In order to accurately test for metals, a heavy metal challenge test is administered to identify the overall level of toxicity.
Once the calcium EDTA chelation agent is released, a six hour durational analysis of urine is captured throughout the day.
Not only is chelation therapy safe and effective, but it is also a recognized treatment for the removal of lead by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration).
Simply put, yes. When chelation is used as a means of prevention, it can address possible free radical damage and cardiovascular problems.
Despite what skeptics may lead you to believe, when chelation therapy is administered by trained professionals, and in conjunction with the right diet, natural supplements, and lifestyle techniques, it is a comprehensive alternative treatment.
Chelation therapy, according to the statistics, is safer than driving a modern day automobile or taking popular medication.
Since chelation therapy uses a simple intravenous method, it causes little discomfort.
When patients are undergoing treatment, they can sit down, visit the restroom, socialize, eat, drink, and even make a telephone call. And because our patients are always on the move during chelation, we provide comfortable pillows, electrical outlets for computers/tablets, and a full staff which can assist, communicate, and take care of your medical needs.
Calcium EDTA, which helps removes metals from the body, is an essential element in the detoxification process.
Besides removing heavy metals, calcium EDTA helps with calcium and cholesterol metabolism by removing the toxins, which also prevents free radical damage.
Free radicals, which are atoms and molecules that contain an unpaired electron, are scientifically considered to be leading causes of diabetes, artherosclerosis, and other commonly known age-related diseases.
Depending on the specific modality, chelation therapy can be used in conjunction with most other treatments, such as certain medications, vitamin supplements, and lifestyle factors.
