What Is Chelation?
Chelation Therapy is an Intravenous infusion of a man-made amino acid(known as EDTA) into the bloodstream which has chemical properties of binding to calcium deposits collected over years on the artery walls) and carry them out of the body via the urine.
Chelation Therapy, Detoxifies your body of Toxic Metal Elements; Arsenic, Lead, Cadmium, Aluminum, Nickel, and more. Numerous studies have implicated Lead and Cadmium in the formation and worsening of Atherosclerosis, the primary cause of Heart and Artery disease, male Erectile Dysfunction, High Blood Pressure, Strokes, and more. These and other actions of EDTA chelation therapy may result in cleaning out the arteries, which in some patients lowers blood pressure and increases circulation.
Chelation Therapy patients are also advised to make a comprehensive lifestyle change which includes, diet, exercise, and stress management modifications paired with dietary supplementation.
Length of IV: 3 hours
Baseline IV Chelation Infusion & Pre & Provoked Urine Toxic Elements Test:
4 IV Chelation Infusions cost $900.00. The average patient is administered 30 infusions .
The cost for Pre & Provoked Urine Toxic Elements Test is 350.00
To determine if you have a significant toxic metal load, a test must be conducted with a chelating agent. Chelating agents grab toxic metals and discharge them through urine and feces. After a nine-hour urine collection, tests are run to give the patient a before and after measurement of the toxic elements in their body before and after the chelation therapy.
This takes place at the first or second chelation infusion to determine your heavy metal load of toxic metals such as cadmium, lead, arsenic, and tin to name a few. The Urine Toxic Elements Test is repeated at your 30th chelation infusion.
Why Measure Toxic Load?
Before we detox from toxic metals, it is essential to first determine if there are any in our bodies. Measuring our blood for these toxic metals is meaningless unless there was a recent toxic exposure event similar to the one in Flint, Michigan. However, most toxic metal exposure is sneaky and gradual, taking rest within our bones for years, even decades. As we age, our bones slowly demineralize and release these toxic elements to neighboring soft tissues such as the heart, brain, kidney, and arterial cells where they can do more damage.

Dr. Nisson’s Cleveland Clinic study demonstrated an extremely high presence of occult Coronary Artery disease in the general American population undiagnosed by doing intracoronary ultrasounds to detect coronary artery intimal thickness in the coronary arteries of heart donor of undiagnosed Americans who died from an accident/trauma.
Chart from the study of the disease prevalence of occult coronary artery disease:
Age Range % with coronary artery disease
This intimal thickness cannot be detected by regular cardiac caths nor GXTs. The dangerous intimal plague is responsible for the majority of coronary events!

What Do Chelation (EDTA) Treatments Involve?
Once it has been established that there is a problem which could benefit from EDTA infusions, a series of treatments are scheduled, usually, one to two times per week based on the patient’s schedule. Often times your treatment will be in a room with other patients receiving treatments. Chelation Therapy is most often given into a vein (usually in the hand or forearm), either as a short injection or over a period of two to four hours. The needle is attached to the infusion bottle containing typically containing 3 grams of ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), a chemical that binds, or chelates heavy metals, including iron, lead, mercury, cadmium, and zinc and various other nutrients. However, the amount of EDTA may vary if you have some degree of renal impairment. The infusion bottle is hung from an adjustable stand and allowed to infusion over 2 and ½ to 3 hours. Because the therapy removes some important minerals from the body, patients often receive high-dose vitamin and mineral supplements during treatment. In most cases, the EDTA solution is dripped into the bloodstream at a rate of one drop per second. The precise amount of time for the administration will be determined by your provider (increased time may be required for impaired renal function patients). Periodic blood and urine testing will be done to make sure that the kidneys and other organs are operating sufficiently well to cope with the EDTA detoxification. The EDTA is 95 percent eliminated from the body by the kidneys and 5 percent via bile excretion. One to three infusions of Chelation Therapy may be given each week. A typical treatment cycle may include twenty (20-30) infusions .
If you or a loved one suffers from any cardiovascular disease like coronary heart disease, hypertension, clogged arteries, stroke or suffers from a stubborn chronic disease, then consider obtaining a toxic metal assessment to determine if this is a significant factor in you or a family member.
