Chelation Therapy

More and more doctors today are turning to chelation therapy to help heart patients stay healthy. Nothing can prevent the need for surgery for someone with heart disease. Chelation therapy can help to reverse the effects of arterial blockage in the time before surgery, after surgery, or in between surgeries.Chelation therapy involves the use of chelators to remove calcium in plaque that collects along arterial walls. This plaque builds up along the walls of the artery, which inhibits the flow of blood from the heart to the organs and muscles. Medicines like aspirin thin the blood so that it flows more easily through the arteries, but only a chelator can help reverse the effects of arterial blockage.

Treatment With Chelators

EDTA, or ethylene diamine tetra-acetate acid, is the chelator that is used to help heart patients. EDTA comes in many forms such as suppository, pill or IV drip. Chelation therapy involves repeated treatments of EDTA to patients who have heart disease. Over a period of time, the therapy will aid in the reversal of plaque problems.

Liquid EDTA, though is the most inexpensive and effective form of EDTA available. It is taken orally and can be purchased without a doctor’s prescription. The liquid is mixed in with the patient’s drinking water and is easily absorbed by the patient’s body. Unlike EDTA therapies involving IV drip or suppository, which can last around six months, liquid EDTA therapy takes only six weeks to take effect.
