Intravenous EDTA chelation therapy is a simple office procedure using a chelating agent, ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid or simply, EDTA. IV chelation reverses or slows progression of atherosclerotic heart disease, hardening or the arteries and other age-related and degenerative diseases. Blood flow increases in block arteries to the heart, brain, legs and throughout the body. Heart attack, stroke, leg pain and gangrene can often be helped or avoided using this therapy. The need for bypass surgery and balloon angioplasty often disappears after chelation therapy. Chelation may help to treat or prevent certain types of cancers.
The free radical theory of disease (caused by oxygen free radicals) provides a scientific explanation for the many observed benefits following chelation therapy. Many scientific studies published in peer reviewed medical journals provide solid evidence for benefit. This non-invasive therapy is safer and far less expensive than conventional surgery or angioplasty.
Chelation therapy is a safe and effective alternative to bypass surgery, angioplasty and cardiac stents. Hardening of the arteries need not lead to coronary artery bypass surgery, heart attacks, amputation, stroke or senility. There is new hope for victims of these and other related diseases.
Despite what you may have heard form other sources, EDTA chelation therapy, administered by a properly trained practitioner, in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, prudent diet and nutritional supplements, is an option to be seriously considered by persons suffering from coronary artery disease, cerebral vascular disease, brain disorders resulting from circulatory disturbances, generalized hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis) and related aliments which can lead to stroke, heart attack, senility, gangrene and accelerated physical decline.
Clinical benefits from chelation therapy vary with the total number of treatments received and with the severity of the condition being treated. On average, 85 percent of chelation patients improve significantly. More that 90 percent of patient receiving 30 or more chelation infusions have benefited enough to be grateful for this therapy – even more so when they also followed a healthy lifestyle and avoided the use of tobacco products. Symptoms improve, blood flow to diseased organs increases, need for medication often decreases and most importantly, the quality of life become more productive and enjoyable.
