Chelation Therapy removes toxic agents, primarily heavy metals from the body. By removing toxic substances from the body, cells become healthier. Cells which become clogged up with toxins and heavy metals do not work the way they should. In fact, those cells are in a sense, poisoned. Modern medical practices are sadly lacking in a full and complete understanding of the effects on cells full of toxins. This has led to a lot of conflicting information about Chelation Therapy. The body mechanism which manage our basic health makes attempt to pick from the best of bad situations when confronted with problems. The blood is one of the most important elements in our body, and the body understands that the blood cannot become diseased. So when possible, the body moves contaminants out of the blood into the cells of the body. Here they get stored and built up, until our cells become so full of toxins and heavy metals that we become ill, feel bad, often with no discernable reason.
How Chelation Therapy Works
In Chelation Therapy patients are given agents which bind to the toxins and heavy metals and remove them from the body, transporting them to the liver and kidneys where they are excreted in waste. Studies have been performed which show that urine and stool examined after Chelation Therapy contained much higher levels of toxins and heavy metals.
Most Chelation Therapy consists of an EDTA, an amino acid that removes toxins. It binds to the cells in tissue and claws out the heavy metals and toxins. It can also remove necessary minerals so it is best to use a Chelation Therapy only as instructed. Debate exists over the effectiveness of pill based Chelation Therapy. Some assert that the EDTA has a difficult time passing through the stomach wall and in concentrations removes too many necessary minerals out of the stomach lining.
But that doesn’t mean that the only other option is a costly doctor visit. There are other alternative Chelation Therapy options which can be done at home. Chelation therapy can reduce fatigue, joint swelling, pain and is also an excellent detox for the body. While it’s little understood exactly how it works, the presence of heavy metals within cells can be seen as something which should not be there and are best removed. Using Chelation Therapy will do no harm when done properly, and even if someone doesn’t suffer from any directly related ailments, many have reported a rejuvenated feeling and sense of well-being.
