intravenous Chelation

Benefits of Chelation Therapy

Chelation is a highly effective treatment for clearing artery-damaging heavy metals from the bloodstream.  It involves the IV administration of a powerful antioxidant called ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetic acid (EDTA), which enters the bloodstream and latches onto heavy metals such as lead, iron, aluminum, mercury, nickel, and cadmium.  These heavy metals cause free radical damage to vessel walls, contributing to plaque formation.  By binding these heavy metals and carrying them out of the body through the urine, EDTA reduces the body's toxic metal burden and helps slow the process of free radical damage and atherosclerosis.  EDTA is also believed to remove excess calcium from artery walls, making them more elastic and better able to dilate.  In the case of mercury toxicity, a different agent called DMPS is used instead, which is most effective for removing mercury.

Chelation therapy has a long history of safe and efficacious use.  Physicians with extensive experience in the use of chelation therapy observe significant improvement in the majority of their patients. Even so, it has mainly been considered an alternative therapy, and most conventional doctors have no training or experience in its use.  Most recently, in the TACT trial in 2012, patients with known coronary artery disease were shown to receive a dramatic benefit in the reduction of subsequent heart attacks and strokes, especially those with diabetes.  Feel free to ask our staff for a list of research articles.


Clinical benefits from chelation therapy vary with the total number of treatments received and with severity of the condition being treated.  More benefit is achieved when a healthy lifestyle is followed, including the cessation of tobacco.  Blood flow to diseased organs increases, often the need for medication decreases, and most importantly, the quality of life becomes more productive and enjoyable.  Patients who undergo chelation often report improvements in energy, memory, cognitive function, and more.
