Heavy metals can accumulate in the tissues of the body.These poisonous metals disrupt the normal biochemical process. Removal of these heavy metals with chelation therapy is probably a major mechanism by which chelation normalizes biochemical activity thereby improving circulation and energy.
5 Benefits of Chelation Therapy
Might improve Heart Health
Although ongoing research is still underway, some alternatives healthcare providers use chelation therapy to treat coronary artery disease. EDTA binds with calcium within the arteries helping to reduce plaque build-up and deposits that restrict blood flow.
Acts Like an Antioxidant
EDTA acts similarly to antioxidants. It helps reduce inflammation, fighting free radical damage and removing metals that cause the foundation of chronic disease development.
Lowers Pain & Swelling
Chelation therapy targets inflammation, which is the root of most disease including arthritis and many autoimmune diseases. Chelation therapy may offer an alternative to ongoing medication as treatment for chronic pain.
Can Help Fight Cognitive Disorders
There is evidence that chelation therapy can successfully treat cognitive disorders like Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. While it isn't clear which mechanisms in EDTA that helps resolve these problems, there seems to be a tie between heavy metal toxicity including high levels of lead or mercury in the blood and medical disorders that affect the brain, memory and learning.
Helps Lower Risk for Learning Disabilities
Many practitioners are now looking to alternative treatment methods to control symptoms of cognitive disorders, including some like chelation therapy that target heavy metal poisoning.
