Chelation Therapy is the removal of accumulated toxic heavy metals from the body which are an underlying cause of many chronic diseases. In the modern world we are all exposed daily to relatively high levels of many poisonous heavy metals including lead, mercury, arsenic, aluminum and cadmium. Depending on where you live, your occupation, and lifestyle, your body’s toxicity levels can vary. Chelation Therapy can be administered intravenously or orally depending on the individuals needs. The best way to determine the body’s burden is with a provoked urinary challenge test.
EDTA Chelation is the treatment of choice for removing high levels of lead in the body. Anyone born before 1980 was exposed to lead from the gasoline used at that time. Other examples of sources include chemicals in processed foods, pesticides and herbicides, tap water, personal care products (cosmetics, perfumes, shampoos, soaps), paints before 1991, batteries and industrial chemicals.
DMSA and DMSA Chelation is usually used to remove mercury, aluminum, cadmium and other metals from the body. These metals store in the body’s fatty tissues throughout the years and contribute to various health issues. The most common sources include chemicals in processed foods, pesticides and herbicides, personal care products, dental amalgam fillings, metal workers, art supplies, vaccinations, industrial pollution and contaminated foods.
Heavy metal toxicity is a main contributing factor in many long term degenerative diseases and is the treatment of choice for conditions such as:
High blood pressure
Coronary Artery Disease
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Asthma and other lung conditions
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
