In recent blogs, I have discussed both Chelation therapy and IV supplementation. In this blog, I will discuss the combination of the two. The most effective way Chelation therapy is performed is by using an intravenous line (IV) to administer a liquid EDTA (ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid), a synthetic amino acid into the bloodstream.
The process provides a powerful anti-oxidant, as it binds with the heavy metals and then expels them out of your body. IV Chelation is a safe, non-surgical treatment that can also remove cholesterol and plaque on the inner walls of blood vessels that restricts the flow of blood and oxygen to the organs. These sessions are often done in 30 minute intervals within five separate treatments. Chronic exposure to chemicals and environmental toxicity are good reasons to choose Chelation IV therapy, since it’s the most effective therapy.
The procedure isn’t painful and the recovery time needed is minimal. Once your doctor decides you may benefit from EDTA infusions, the treatments are scheduled for two or three times per week. The infusion includes a drip of about a half a liter of fluid containing 2 to 3 grams of EDTA and whatever additional minerals or supplements your doctor has prescribed to achieve a balanced blood content.
Your doctor will determine what chemicals, herbs or nutrients benefit you most, and the EDTA mixture for treatment is custom prepared. These combinations usually contain a mixture of B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium and heparin (an anticoagulant, which is used to prevent any clotting).
Periodical blood and urine tests are done to make sure that the kidney and other organs are operating sufficiently well to cope with the EDTA detoxification. The EDTA and toxins are removed from the body via the kidneys and bile.
