What is oral chelation?
Oral chelation means delivering chelating agents orally. Oral Chelation is a safe, non-surgical, non-medical treatment used to remove toxic heavy metals and excess calcium and cholesterol. 2, 3 Dimercaptosuccinic Acid (DMSA, Succimer) is an example for oral chelating agent.
What is meant by chelation therapy?
Chelation therapy is a chemical process in which a synthetic solution—EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid)—is injected into the bloodstream to remove heavy metals and/or minerals from the body.
How do chelators work?
Chelators work by binding to metals in the bloodstream. Once they’re injected into the bloodstream, they circulate through the blood, binding to metals. In this way, chelators collect all the heavy metals into a compound that’s filtered through the kidneys and released in urine.
Does oral EDTA really work?
There is a form of oral EDTA that was approved by the FDA for treatment of lead toxicity in adults and children. Our program has proven results for reversing heart disease without drugs, whether EDTA or other drugs.
What can I expect after chelation therapy?
The most common side effect is burning in the area where you get the IV. You might also experience fever, headache, and nausea or vomiting. Chelating drugs can bind to and remove some metals your body needs, like calcium, copper, and zinc. This can lead to a deficiency in these important substances.
How is chelation therapy used to remove metals?
It’s also available in pill form. Once the drug has attached to the metal, your body removes them both through your pee. Metals that can be removed with chelation therapy include lead, mercury, and arsenic. Before you get this treatment, your doctor will do a blood test to make sure you have metal poisoning.
Why is oral chelation used in the treatment of toxicity?
Currently, toxicity diagnosis is under developed because of the high costs of lab tests and the difficulty of a successful and accurate analysis. Oral chelation is an affordable method to detox these pervasive chemicals in our bodies that would not be possible to excrete any other way.
Are there any side effects of chelation therapy?
This can lead to a deficiency in these important substances. Some people who’ve had chelation therapy also have low calcium levels in the blood and kidney damage. Today, chelation therapy is only FDA-approved to treat metal poisoning. There just isn’t enough evidence to support its use for any other condition.
How does chelation therapy work for blood pressure?
Chelation therapy uses special drugs that bind to metals in your blood. You get the chelating medicine through an intravenous (IV) tube in your arm. It’s also available in pill form.
