      What is Chelation Therapy?

      Everyday environmental exposures to toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum, and cadmium continue to play a critical role in your health. When not correctly eliminated from your body, these toxic metals get deposited into your brain, gut, and arteries, causing some serious health concerns.

      Chelation means “to grab” or “bind to.” Chelation therapy is an FDA-approved treatment that uses EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid), an amino acid, to bind to heavy metals and effectively and safely exit them from the body.

      The process involves a simple IV procedure to detoxify the bloodstream from toxic heavy metals, leaving you feeling your best!

      IV Chelation Frequently Asked Questions

      What is chelation ?

      Chelation is the process by which a metal or mineral (such as calcium, lead, cadmium, iron, arsenic, aluminum) is bonded to another substance. In this case, EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid) an amino acid, is the substance used.

      What is chelation therapy?

      Chelation is a treatment by which a small amino acid (EDTA) is slowly administered intravenously to the patient over several hours under medical supervision. The EDTA bonds with unbalanced metals in the body and redistributes them in a healthy way. Abnormally situated metals such as iron, as well as toxic elements such as lead, mercury, and aluminum are removed using chelation therapy.

      What is IV chelation therapy?

      Intravenous EDTA chelation therapy reverses and slows the progression of atherosclerotic heart disease, hardening of the arteries, and other age-related and degenerative diseases. Chelation can be an alternative for angioplasty, stents, and bypass surgery.

      Is chelation therapy a new treatment?

      Chelation therapy has been practiced since 1948, when it was first used as a treatment for lead poisoning.

      Do I have to be hospitalized for chelation therapy?

      No, chelation therapy is an out-patient treatment available in a physician's office or clinic.

      How many treatments do I need?

      Chelation therapy usually consists of a series of anywhere from 10-30 separate infusions, depending on each patient's individual health status. Thirty treatments is the average number required for optimal treatment for patient with arterial blockages. Your medical provider will determine the number of treatments appropriate for you.

      How long do the treatments take? What are the treatments like?

      Each chelation treatment takes approximately three hours. The IV fluid containing the EDTA is administered through a small needle placed in the vein of a patient's arm. The treatment is painless with very little discomfort. Patients are seated in reclining chairs and can read, watch TV, talk on the phone, etc. while receiving treatment.

      Are there any risks or side effects?

      Chelation therapy is non-toxic and virtually risk-free when compared to other treatments. Patients usually drive themselves home following treatment. The risk of significant side effects, when properly administered, is less than 10,000 patients treated.

Some temporarily experience mild nausea, dizziness, or headache immediately following treatment, but these conditions are easily relieved.

      What types of exams and tests are required prior to chelation therapy?

      Prior to beginning chelation therapy, a complete medical history is obtained. Diet is analyzed for nutritional soundness and balance. Copies of pertinent medical records and hospital admissions summaries may be requested. A thorough physical examination will be performed. A complete list of all medications taken will be recorded. Allergies will be noted.

      Blood and urine specimens will be collected in a battery of tests to insure that no conditions exist which should be treated differently or might be worsened by chelation therapy. Kidney function will be carefully assessed. An electrocardiogram is obtained. Noninvasive tests may be performed to determine the status of arterial blood flow prior to treatment. Consultations with other medical specialists may occur.

      Is chelation therapy FDA approved?

      Intravenous use of EDTA is currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment patients with severe heavy metal poisoning, abnormally high levels of calcium in the blood, and dangerous levels of certain drugs.
