Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Chelation Therapy

If you eat a well-balanced diet, exercise on a regular basis, and take care of yourself, you may assume that your health is not threatened by any major risk factors. Unfortunately, this isn’t always true. Even the healthiest among us are still vulnerable to the countless toxins, chemicals, and pollutants found in our air, food, and water. In order to ensure your optimal wellness, it is important that you also rid your body of these toxins on a regular basis. Chelation therapy is one of the best ways to accomplish this goal.

What is Chelation Therapy?

Chelation therapy is a simple treatment that removes heavy metals like lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, aluminum, and calcium from the body. During chelation therapy, molecules of the amino acid EDTA are delivered into the body using an IV. EDTA naturally latches onto heavy metals and carries them out of the body through the urine. In this way, chelation can reduce the body’s toxic metal burden and minimize or eliminate a number of negative health consequences.

The Benefits of Chelation Therapy

Heavy metals latch quickly and firmly to the tissues and bones of the body and generate extensive free radical damage over time. Since free radical damage can cause everything from chronic disease to signs of aging, heavy metals are very damaging to the body. Chelation eliminates these toxins from the body and as a result prevents common symptoms of heavy metal toxicity like chronic fatigue, cognitive decline, joint and muscle pain, depression, anxiety, and autoimmune diseases. Through chelation therapy, the root cause of these health problems is addressed and resolved, which allows the body to reduce its inflammatory responses and return to full health.
