Chelation Therapy is a medical procedure that involves the administration of chelating agents to bind and remove heavy metals and minerals from the body.
EDTA (Ethylene Diamine Tetra-Acetic acid)
The most common agent used is EDTA (Ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid). Once in the bloodstream, EDTA binds to metals such as lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, aluminum, and calcium. After forming this bond, the complex is excreted in the urine.
Heavy Metal Poisoning: Chelation therapy's primary and most accepted use is in the treatment of heavy metal poisoning, like lead or mercury poisoning.
Alternative Therapy for Cardiovascular Disease: Some practitioners believe that chelation therapy can help in the treatment of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by removing calcium deposits from the arterial walls.
Autism Treatment: Some alternative medicine practitioners have used chelation therapy as a treatment for autism, based on the belief that autism is caused by mercury poisoning, usually from vaccines.
