Chelation therapy involves weekly IV treatments of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes. In general, the medication seeks out and sticks to metals and minerals in the bloodstream, creating a compound that the body removes when urinating.
Benefits of Chelation Therap
Those who have mild symptoms of metal toxicity, such as the sporadic recurrence of nausea, weakness, or shortness of breath, due to food or water poisoning, can also get chelation therapy to prevent the symptoms from worsening. Because toxicity means the body is being poisoned, pulling the toxin out of the body helps reduce the effects of the condition and increase the quality of life. Some other benefits of chelation therapy include:
– Restore the normal energy levels
– Rehabilitate the normal vision
– Increase appetite
– Stabilize blood pressure
