What Is Chelation Therapy?
by William E. Richardson, MD;MSPH

Chelation therapy is an intravenous treatment that introduces the synthetic amino acid, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, also know as EDTA into the blood stream. EDTA binds to heavy metals, calcium and other mineral deposits that have collected on the artery walls and excretes them out of the body through the uterine. These and other actions of EDTA can result in cleaning out the arteries, thereby, lowering blood pressure and increasing circulation.

Chelation therapy is a safe alternative to drugs and surgeries. It offers a new direction in the treatment of all dis-eases caused by atherosclerosis (advanced hardening of the arteries) due to its ability to promote health by correcting the major underlying cause of arterial blockage.

Various studies and reports indicate that 85% of all patients treated with EDTA chelation therapy have received benefits. In addition, chelation may provide help in a host of chronic dis-eases including: strokes, heart dis-ease, hypertension, heavy metal poisoning, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer's, senility, arthritis, osteoporosis, MS, varicose veins, cold hands and feet, diabetes, and cancer.

Over 700 medical doctors in the US use chelation therapy to treat cardiovascular illness and other dis-eases. It is estimated that more than 2 million citizens in the U.S. and 30 million people worldwide, have used this treatment.
