In its early days, chelation therapy was used to treat heavy metal poisoning, because of its ability to remove heavy metals from the blood stream. Chelation Therapy has evolved since then, with research showing its ability to address heart disease, circulatory disorders, and other serious health issues.
Use of chelation therapy to treat heart disease and other diseases has grown 68% in just five years, with 111,000 people using the treatment annually.
Chelation therapy has shown to have significant impact on patients suffering from a wide range of serious health problems. Treatment has been shown to improve:
- Peripheral blood flow
- Pulmonary function
- Bone density
- Mental clarity
- Blood pressure
- Chronic fatigue
Recent studies show that chelation therapy produced a statistically significant reduction in cardiovascular events in treated patients. Patients with diabetes had a 41% overall reduction in the risk of any cardiovascular event, and a 40% reduction in the risk of death from heart disease.
Very effective in removing metals from the body, chelation therapy can also be used to reduce high iron levels caused by certain blood disorders or from multiple blood transfusions.
Enhanced Blood Flow
Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. According to The Heart Foundation, every 33 seconds someone in the United States dies of cardiovascular disease. By the year 2020, heart disease will be the leading cause of death in the world.
Atherosclerosis is the narrowing and stiffening of arteries due to the accumulation of plaque, which is a primary cause of heart attack. Studies show that chelation therapy can slow atherosclerosis, restoring healthy circulation to the heart. The alternative is angioplasty and bypass surgeries, which are expensive and invasive.
How is it Administered?
At Dayton Dandes Medical Center we provide qualified patients with chelation therapy. A series of injections of ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), a man-made amino acid, are administered through the veins to bind iron, lead, mercury, cadmium and other metals found in the blood stream, and eliminate them from the body. The process occurs in our modern medical facility, and patients can return home after treatment.
