Chelation in New York

What is Chelation therapy and how can it help you be healthier?

Chelation Therapy is a process that most commonly is used to treat patients who have heavy metal poisoning (e.g. mercury, arsenic, iron, uranium, plutonium or lead poisoning), but has also been used as a treatment for other diseases, such as heart disease, and angina, and alongside other treatments for certain types of cancer.

Chelation therapy is to put it as simply as possible certain chemicals, also known as chelating agents, such as EDTA, DMSA or DMPS are injected into the body through an IV port or by an intramuscular injection. These medications bond with heavy metals and minerals in the body and are slowly excreted through natural processes. Chelating agents could be compared to a sort of magnet for removing metals from the body.

While some may be helped by just one chelation treatment, most patients must undergo a series of IV treatments in order to remove all of the metallic and mineral poisons in the body. While chelating agents are sold over-the-counter, the FDA strongly discourages those with a medical need for heavy metal removal to seek the care of a physician. In fact, there are NO FDA approved over-the-counter chelation products, and those who claim their products are chelating agents are in violation of federal law. Therefore, it is imperative that chelation therapy be administered by a medical professional in an outpatient facility or hospital.
