EDTA Chelation Therapy – What is It?
Intravenous EDTA Chelation therapy (also called Chelation Therapy) is an in-office procedure that slowly increases circulation by non-surgically reducing plaque in arteries and binds heavy metals, eliminating them from the system over time. This chelation intravenous treatment has been safely used for over 60 years and has become well known through such books as “Bypassing Bypass Surgery” by Elmer Cranton, MD.
How Does I.V. EDTA Chelation Therapy Work?
Chelation treatments increase circulation and rid the body of toxic heavy metals. An impressive body of peer-reviewed published controlled human trials have demonstrated a significant impact from I.V. EDTA chelation therapy among individuals with established vascular and/or heart disease.
Action of I.V. EDTA Chelation Therapy
- Non-surgically removes plaque. Over half the dry weight of plaque is calcium which, during chelation therapy treatments, is bound by EDTA and removed over a series of treatments.
- Provides antioxidant protection.
- Increases arterial wall compliance.
- Improves hemodynamics.
- Removes buildup of potentially toxic trace minerals that accumulate in diseased myocardium and in beta-amyloid plaques
- Binds toxic heavy metals, including lead, cadmium and aluminum and removes them via urinary excretion.
- Reduces clots.
- Increases production of nitric oxide, a vasodilator.
Is I.V. EDTA Chelation Therapy Safe?
The safety of IV EDTA chelation therapy has been demonstrated in multiple studies and is on the FDA GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) list. No serious adverse events have been reported in the treatment of over one million patients receiving over 20 million IV EDTA chelation therapies per recommendations by the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM).
Dr. Sean Ceaser carries the Certification in Chelation Therapy (CCT) credentials offered by ACAM to doctors who complete their certification exam and wish to apply the highest standard of care when administering chelation therapy.
