There are numerous factors of lifestyle and eating habits that have been associated with the development of deposits in the blood, which become the main cause of heart disease. In addition to available interventions, including practices like no smoking, following a heart-healthy diet, routine exercise, and stress management, there is promising research determining the role of heavy toxic metal accumulation in atherosclerosis.
These heavy metals are among the environmental pollutants that cause damage to health. They are generally accurate in human tissues contributing to the plaques that lead to occlusion of blood flow in cardiovascular disease. The heavy toxins and metals are difficult to remove from the body. But with the help of EDTA chelation therapy for artery plaques, one can easily get rid of this metal toxicity. Let’s learn more about chelation therapy.
What is Chelation Therapy?
Chelation therapy is an FDA-approved therapy for treating heavy metal toxicity; these metals include mercury, lead, and other types of heavy metal poisoning, including iron overload (hemochromatosis) and anemia.
Chelation therapy is popularly known worldwide to remove heavy metal toxicity (including hemochromatosis. In general terms, chelation therapy for cardiovascular disease uses specific chelating agents(EDTA) to form complexes that inactivate heavy metals (metal ions), which are naturally exerted by the body through urination. In the chelation therapy process, when the chelator is bound with these toxic metals in the body, they tend to form soluble, inactive complexes that are eliminated in the urine.
The process of Chelation therapy for cardiovascular disease
The chelation therapy process involves the weekly IV treatments of EDTA ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, which is a chelation agent. Each chelation therapy treatment lasts about 30 minutes.
Normally the medications seek out and attach to the metals and minerals present in the blood vessels. Some of the common chelation medications used for EDTA chelation therapy for artery plaques are:
Edetate calcium disodium
If an individual is suffering from metal poisoning, then chelation therapy can help treat the condition. The chelators(chelation agents) bind the heavy metal together in the blood vessel. To avoid any type of risks or side effects, it is best to get the chelation treatment from medical experts.
