What is chelation therapy?
Chelation therapy is an injection treatment for cardiovascular problems which involves the intravenous infusion of vitamins, magnesium and a chelating, or binding, agent known as EDTA. This mixture serves to chelate, or bind, toxic heavy metals, calcium and free radicals in blood vessel walls, which are then excreted in the urine. As a result, blood vessels become more pliable and circulation improves, which leads to the reduction or elimination of chest pain and other symptoms of vascular disease.
Patients who have completed a course of chelation therapy often notice an improvement in energy and well-being, and are often able to reduce or eliminate their need for medication. In an analysis of more than 20,000 patients receiving chelation therapy, 87% had measurable improvement in parameters such as exercise tolerance, walking distance and cardiogram results.
