What is Chelation Therapy?
Chelation therapy is an intravenous treatment intended to bind heavy metals in the body in order to treat heavy metal toxicity. Also, Proponents claim it also treats coronary artery disease and other illnesses that may be linked to damage from free radicals (reactive molecules).
Chelation Therapy Process
This therapy makes use of particular drugs that are administered through an intravenous (IV) tube. A person can also opt to take medications for this therapy. Moreover, continual medication can eventually result in the binding of metals in the blood and removed through the body by excretion. However, before Chelation therapy can be started by the patient, blood tests will be done first to confirm metal poisoning.
How Chelation Therapy works?
Chelation therapy has the capability to remove the calcium from artery plaques as well as remove toxic ions, reduce free radical damage and restore circulation to all tissues of the body. And, a growing number of physicians use Chelation therapy to reverse the process of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and as an alternative to angioplasty and bypass surgery.
There are some precaution should be taken for this therapy, which is as follows:
Firstly, it is important for people who receive Chelation therapy to work with medical personnel who are experienced in the use of this treatment. Also, Treatment should not be undertaken before a good physical, lifestyle evaluation, history, and any laboratory tests necessary are performed. Moreover, the staff must be forthcoming about test results and should answer any questions the patient may have. Besides, evaluation and treatment should be individualized and involve assessment of kidney function before each treatment with Chelation, since the metals bound by the EDTA are excreted through the kidneys.
Chelation therapy binds injurious, toxic metals like mercury, lead, and cadmium, it also binds some essential nutrients of the body, such as copper, iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium. Further, large amounts of zinc are lost during Chelation. Furthermore, supplements of zinc are generally given to patients undergoing Chelation.
More significantly, Chelation therapy does not replace proper nutrition, exercise, and appropriate medications or surgery for specific diseases or conditions.
To sum up, Chelation is achieved through a painless intravenous drip over approximately one to three hours. Also, Depending on the condition, anywhere between 1 and 30 sessions may be recommended. Medical practitioners skilled in Chelation therapy also will prescribe dietary and lifestyle changes along with nutritional supplementation to complement the results of the Chelation therapy for long term health and disease prevention.
