- About Us
Chelation therapy (pronounced key-LAY-shun) is a treatment used in conventional medicine for removing heavy metals (including mercury) from the blood. It involves intravenous injections of a chelating agent, EDTA (Ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), a synthetic amino acid.
EDTA binds to heavy metals and minerals in the blood so that they can be excreted in the urine. Chronic, low level exposure to toxic heavy metals is a global problem.
The symptoms associated with the slow accumulation of toxic metals are multiple and rather nondescript, and overt expression of toxic effects may not appear until late in life. Mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic is particularly insidious and can affect a vast array of biochemical and nutritional processes.
