Chelation Therapy


Chelation Therapy Benefits: What to Know

Why do patients choose chelation therapy? 

The main advantage is removing toxic heavy metals from the body, but the benefits don’t end there. Administration of chelating agents can also help lower blood pressure,reduce the risk of heart attack, combat inflammation, and reduce fatigue.

Chelation therapy may also be useful in treating and preventing serious health conditions such as *Alzheimer’s disease* and some forms of cancer.
Read on to learn more about these benefits.

Removes Heavy Metals from the Body:

As discussed, chelation therapy can be an effective solution for removing various heavy metals from the body. This includes lead, iron, arsenic, mercury, copper, and nickel. These substances can enter the bloodstream when someone drinks contaminated water, breathes polluted air, or ingests small amounts of lead paint. As a result, they may suffer from heavy metal poisoning.

Lowers Blood Pressure:

In addition to heavy metals, chelating agents might help lower blood pressure. Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a serious concern for many adults, putting them at a higher risk for various health conditions, such as peripheral arterial disease, cardiovascular disease, heart disease, coronary artery disease, kidney disease, and vascular dementia.

Reduces Risk of Heart Attack:

Chelating therapy is believed to bind to the calcium in artery plaque, ultimately clearing it from blood vessels.

Combats Inflammation:

There is also evidence to suggest that chelating agents reduce inflammation (pain and swelling) in the body. The chemical compounds act as antioxidants, which may address potentially damaging free radicals and oxidative stress.

Reduces Fatigue:

Some believe that when the body harbors heavy metals and other toxins, individuals are likely to feel physically and mentally fatigued. When these harmful substances are removed, you might experience increased energy or sharper mental ability.

Alzheimer’s Treatment:

While there is currently no known treatment for stopping or reversing Alzheimer’s disease, some researchers have hope for chelation therapy. The condition is associated with abnormal levels of a protein called beta-amyloid. Chelating drugs have been shown to reduce the protein, potentially slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s.

Cancer Prevention and Treatment:

Chelating agents are sometimes used to prevent and treat certain types of cancer. For example, the benefits of chelation therapy for prostate cancer and the benefits of chelation therapy for breast cancer are very positive.
This is because tumors need iron, copper, zinc, and other metal ions to grow. Chelators work to block the metabolic pathways of cancerous cells by controlling proteins affected by these metals. Other Benefits of Chelation Therapy:

Chelating agents may also help alleviate diabetic ulcers and intermittent claudication, in addition to potentially preventing conditions such as peripheral vascular disease and peripheral neuropathy. Some believe chelation can support a healthy wound-healing process as well.

How Chelation Therapy Works:

Chelation therapy typically involves chelating agents and nutrients which are infused into the bloodstream. This cocktail will bind to iron, lead, cadmium, mercury, and other heavy metals. After attaching to these toxic substances, chelating agents are passed through urination, ultimately removed from the body.

This is a safe natural approach to detoxification and healing!
