Chelation therapy is a form of healthcare that draws metabolic wastes and toxic metals out of the bloodstream. This is usually achieved by injecting chelating agents (such as ethylene diamine tetra acetate—EDTA) that bind with other substances.
Chelation therapy has been reported to remove the calcium content of plaque from the artery walls as well as remove toxic ions and restore circulation to all tissues of the body. 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.
Chelation therapy is also used to treat degenerative diseases such as lupus and arthritis. Chelation is an outpatient therapy that is painless and takes about three and a half hours to perform.
