IV Chelation Therapy is a safe, effective and relatively inexpensive treatment to restore blood flow in victims of atherosclerosis without surgery and to eliminate toxins and heavy metals from the system.
In old times metal intoxication was largely related to acute or high dose toxicity. Such acute high dose toxicity is now uncommon. Most intoxication now is caused by chronic, low dose effects. Toxic metals may disguise themselves as mimics of essential metals, binding to physiological sites that normally are reserved for an essential element.
Through mimicry, the toxic metals may gain access to, and potentially disrupt a variety of important or even critical metal medicated cellular function. Cadmium, copper and nickel act as mimics for zinc.
Chelation Therapy involves the intravenous infusion of a prescription medicine called Ethylene Diamine Tetra-Acetic Acid (EDTA), plus vitamins and minerals at therapeutic dosages.
Chelation therapy is among the safest of medical procedures. More than 400,000 patients have received over four million treatments during the past 30 years.
EDTA infusions are administered by slow drip, circulating through the blood stream treating the entire arterial system removing undesirable metals from the body. Some metals such as lead, mercury cadmium and iron are HIGHLY TOXIC. Lead and cadmium levels correlate with high blood pressure. All metals, even essential nutritional elements, are toxic in excess EDTA normalizes the distribution of most metallic elements in the body. EDTA improves calcium and cholesterol metabolism by eliminating metallic catalysts which cause damage to cell membranes by producing ‘OXYGEN FREE RADICALS’. Free radical pathology is now proven scientifically to be an important contributing cause of atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes and other diseases of aging.
EDTA helps prevent the production of harmful ‘Free Radicals’ through elimination. Arterial disease is responsible for strokes, heart attacks, poor circulation and memory loss.
It is used extensively as a preventive treatment, addressing ‘free radical’ damage and thereby minimizing the risk of cardiovascular problems in the future, especially for those with high risk factors, such as past history of smoking, drug or drink abuse, cholesterol and other hereditary indicators.
If you have chest pain or leg pain on walking, shortness of breath, painful, discolored feet, transient loss of vision, paralysis, or rapidly failing memory, see a physician! Any unexplained or persistent symptoms which affect your heart, head of limbs should be assessed for possible circulatory blockage.
Each patient is different and it is only after a medical evaluation that an individual can be advised on the likely length of treatment. However historically 10-30 infusions achieve significant improvement. The level of improvement depends upon the individual patient, the severity of the conditions and the strength of each infusion, which is tailored to each patient.

Heavy Metal Poisoning: The toxic accumulation of heavy metals in the soft tissues of the body. They may enter the body in food, water, air, or by absorption through the skin.
Aluminum – Has a tendency to accumulate in the brain and bones. It comes from everyday products: nasal spray, cooking utensils, food additives, antacids, buffered aspirin, automobile exhaust, aluminum soda cans, tobacco smoke, etc. It causes forgetfulness, bone softening, soft tissue damage, and cardiac arrest.
Arsenic – Can be found in food, water and household items. It begins by causing headaches, confusion and drowsiness. As it develops, symptoms include convulsions, vomiting, diarrhea and hair loss. Organs affected are the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver.
Iron (Hemachromatosis) – Is caused by an excess of iron in the blood. It is commonly caused by consuming large quantities of iron supplement pills. It may also be caused by consuming tap water. It causes damage primarily to the brain and liver. Iron toxicity can eventually lead to liver failure.
Lead – Can damage nerve connections and cause blood and brain disorders, as it affects the Central Nervous System. Long term exposure can cause nephropathy and colic-like abdominal pains.
Mercury – Is a neurotoxin, meaning it affects the nervous system. The degree of risk varies depending on the amount of mercury, the form, how often exposed, and the age of the person. Symptoms include sensory impairment, memory loss, tremors, personality changes and headaches.
EDTA chelation removes heavy metals and excessive minerals from the body, reducing the risk for overload or toxicity.
