Chelation therapy is a safe, nonsurgical treatment used to get rid of excess toxins, especially metals, in your body.
Chelating agents used in this therapy are available in over-the-counter formulas and can be taken orally at home.
It can also be done intravenously under the supervision of a physician.
These chelators draw out toxic metals and other harmful substances that impair body function, and help your body eliminate these toxins via your kidneys.
Oral chelating agents can often prevent problems from occurring by restoring circulation to your body’s tissues.
If serious health problems already exist, intravenous therapy is usually necessary.
Chelation therapy is used to treat a variety of health problems.
First, chelating agents are used to bind with heavy toxic metals like cadmium, lead, and mercury – things entering your body through food, water, and other means – and excrete these metals from your body.
As certain minerals accumulate in your body, they interact with other minerals, promoting the actions of some and inhibiting the actions of others.
Lead, for instance, has been shown to inhibit the actions of calcium, iron, and potassium, all of which are important nutrients.
When chelating agents are used to eliminate toxic metals like lead from your body, essential nutrients can do their job better.
Chelation therapy is also used to treat atherosclerosis and other circulatory disorders, as well as gangrene, which often is the result of poor circulation.
In atherosclerosis, deposits of cholesterol, fats, and other substances collect on the walls of large and medium-sized arteries in the form of hard plaque.
Calcium acts as the “glue” holding the atherosclerotic plaque together.
Chelating agents bind with this calcium and carry it out of your body, breaking up the plaque deposits, unclogging your arteries, and letting more normal blood flow.
Oral chelating agents offer a safe, convenient alternative for people who’re at risk for circulatory problems or problems caused by toxic metal accumulation.
Among the many disorders possibly helped by chelation therapy are multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and arthritis.
This should be only an adjunct to the conventional treatment prescribed by your doctor.
Some people have reported dramatic improvement in arterial circulation after chelation treatment.
But, the medical literature can’t fully support its use.
It’s always wise to consult a health care professional first if you have one of these chronic conditions.
The following chelating agents can be used to prevent many degenerative illnesses and can often alleviate the symptoms of existing conditions.
These agents can be purchased in the combinations shown below in health food stores and drugstores.
Follow package directions regarding dosage.
*Alfalfa, fiber, rutin, and selenium.
*Calcium and magnesium chelate with potassium.
*Chromium, garlic, pectin, and potassium.
*Copper chelate, iron, sea kelp, and zinc chelate.
Follow a diet designed to treat heart disease and/or high cholesterol.
Avoid fried foods, dairy products, mayonnaise, red meat, processed and fast foods, salt, and gravies.
Limit vegetable oils.
Drink only steam-distilled water.
Eat as many fiber-rich foods as possible.
Oats, brown rice, and wheat bran are all good sources of fiber.
Add a high-protein drink to your diet, or take the essential amino acids in supplement form.
A deficiency of any one essential amino acid will reduce the effectiveness of all the others.
Increase your intake of manganese by eating Brazil nuts, pecans, barley, buckwheat, whole wheat, and dried split peas.
Manganese is an important chelating agent when eaten in manganese-rich foods.
It’s a major factor in blocking calcium from entering the cells of your arterial lining (don’t eat Brazil nuts if you’re pregnant).
Incorporate onions into your daily meals.
Onions produce a natural chelating effect in your body and tend to decrease the “clotting power” of blood.
When using chelation therapy, make sure to replace any essential minerals that might be displaced by chelating agents.
Alfalfa, iron (with your doctor’s approval), kelp, and zinc supplements are recommended.
If you take zinc supplements, eat sulfur-rich foods, like garlic, onions, and legumes.
Zinc inhibits the action of sulfur.
