Naturopathic Clinic – Chelation Therapy
Electra Health Floor – EDTA – Chelation Treatment
Downtown Vancouver chelation therapy clinic. Chelation therapy is the process used as a means of purging toxic metals and minerals from a patient’s body. Chelation treatment focuses on effectivley removing harmful and fatiguing toxins such as lead, copper, iron, cadmium, and mercury in the blood. If you’re wondering why it’s so important to remove these specific toxins and minerals from the body, take a look at this:
- Lead and cadmium are common industrial pollutants that foster free radical activity and poison critical enzymes which repair tissue.
- Iron promotes free radical activity and thereby leads to accelerated arterial damage.
- Mercury’s toxicity can depress the immune system and cause an array of symptoms.
As you can see, toxic levels of metals are responsible for free radical production. Free radicals lead to nutritional imbalances, aging, vitamin deficiencies, and oxygen deficits. Chelation therapy using EDTA removes the high metal levels and restores the body’s natural vitamin and mineral levels, allowing the body’s cells to repair themselves, and assisting our body in becoming healthy again.
In addition to the purging of detrimental toxins, chelation therapy using EDTA is also used to effectively remove harmful body wastes, such as unnecessary and detrimental calcium from soft tissues, blood vessel walls, and joint spaces. As practiced in Vancouver, chelation therapy has shown to be a very effective holistic and naturopathic treatment in helping patients prevent or treat atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, as well as a host of circulation problems.
How Does Chelation Therapy Work?
The term “chelation” (pronounced Key-Lay-Shun) comes from the Greek word chele, which means “claw,” referring to the way that the chelation therapy grabs onto toxins and metals. The most popular form of chelation therapy in Vancouver employs an amino acid called EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid) which is a cleansing agent, injected into a patient’s bloodstream through a vein, to act as the proverbial “claw” that binds, or chelates, the heavy metals and toxins and then purges them from the body via urinary excretion.
EDTA through chelation treatment is slowly dispensed to a patient intravenously over several hours, prescribed by and under the supervision of a naturopathic doctor. The IV fluid containing EDTA is administered through a small needle placed in the vein of a patient’s arm. The EDTA chelation therapy infusion then bonds with unstable metals in the body and carries them out of the body. Abnormally situated nutritional metals, such as iron, along with toxic elements such as lead, mercury and aluminum are simply removed by EDTA chelation therapy.
Is Chelation Treatment Safe?
Chelation therapy using EDTA has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of lead and heavy metal poisoning for over 40 years. In Vancouver, Chelation therapy has been safely used for many years. Simply put, the human body cannot effectively break down heavy metals, which over time, can build up to toxic levels and interfere with normal and healthy body functioning.
Chelation treatment using EDTA leaves the body in the same form by which it entered, but on its way out, purges harmful metals and minerals. Normally present minerals and trace elements which are essential for healthy functioning, are more tightly bound within the body and can be maintained with a properly balanced nutritional supplement.
Nearly anyone could benefit from chelation treatment. In today’s modern world we are suffused with an assortment of harmful toxins through the air we breathe and the foods we eat. Every year approximately 6000 new chemicals are being formed. these chemicals are steadily entering our environment, and could eventually affect our overall health.
