What is Chelation Therapy ?
Chelation therapy is an advanced means of extracting heavy metals, such as lead or mercury lead from the blood; it’s often a go-to treatment for a wide range of metal poisoning. In recent years, chelation therapy has also been able to effectively treat many other wellness conditions, including concerns linked to diabetes and heart disease.
What conditions are treated with Chelation Therapy?
Chelation therapy can address a wide array of medical and wellness conditions such as:
- Coronary atherosclerosis
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Angina pectoris (Condition after myocardial infarction)
- Decreased blood flow to the brain and legs
- Circulation problems associated with diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol, and fat liver
How Chelation Therapy works?
Chelation therapy can treat atherosclerosis, which can result in a buildup of plaque within the arteries. Over time, this can pose as a risk for heart disease. Chelators bind to calcium found in plaque, which helps to loosen and remove the buildup. Since chelation therapy improves blood flow systemically, it may also indirectly benefit those struggling with Erectile Dysfunction.
What products are used for Chelation Therapy ?
This therapy could be performed using EDTA or Plaquex:
EDTA extracts heavy metals from the bloodstream acting as an antioxidant by keeping your cells healthy. It reduces the risk of heart problems caused by high levels of calcium in the walls of your arteries. EDTA Chelation can help you maintain a healthy and clean cardiovascular system.
PLAQUEX is a product designed specifically to release arteriosclerotic plaque from the arteries of the body, improving blood circulation to the heart, legs, brain, and other vital organs.
How is the procedure done?
In chelation therapy, a dose of a medication called ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is delivered into your bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) line. This medication seeks out and binds to minerals and heavy metals in your bloodstream. Once the medication binds to the minerals, it creates a compound that leaves the body within urination.
How long take the treatment?
The treatment can take approximately one hour, and half and it can be done once or twice a week.
