Chelation Therapy

Chelation therapy is an intravenous infusion of vitamins, magnesium, saline solution and specific amino acids. It is a safe and effective way to remove toxic substances from the body and to restore vascular health in cases of atherosclerosis.

During chelation therapy, intravenous solution is slowly trickled into the bloodstream and binds to toxic metals in the body such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum. Various solutions are used depending upon the underlying toxicity.

Forms of chelation used in heart disease contain substances that bind calcium thereby breaking down arterial plaques and helping to improve cardiovascular function and improving blood flow to all the organs of the body.

Generally a urinalysis is performed, prior to treatment, which identifies specific toxicities and consequently dictates the course of treatment.
