What is Chelation?
Chelation is an FDA-approved therapy for the safe elimination of toxic heavy metals from the body. During the chelation treatment, the patient is injected with a synthetic amino acid, EDTA (Ethylene Diamine Tetra Acetic Acid). This acid is remarkably capable of removing cholesterol, heavy metals, and plaque (which impedes blood flow,) from the body. Chelation is helpful for cancer patients as it binds with and eliminates excess free radicals, which contribute to the rapid progression of cancer.
How Does it Work?
Chelation therapy is a medical treatment that involves the use of chelating agents, which are chemical compounds that can bind to certain metals and minerals in the body and facilitate their elimination through urine. The goal of chelation therapy is to remove excess or toxic levels of metals or minerals from the body.
What are the Risks?
While chelation therapy is generally considered safe when administered by a trained healthcare provider, it is not without risks. The most common side effects of chelation therapy include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. More serious side effects can occur in rare cases, including kidney damage, liver toxicity, and allergic reactions.
