Chelation therapy can be the next step in heart health for those suffering from or wanting to avoid heart disease. Chelation therapy is the removal of toxic heavy metals and mineral deposits in the body.
Chelators are traditionally given to people who have some sort of heavy metal poisoning, although more and more doctors today are turning to chelation therapy to help heart patients stay healthy. Chelators can be used to reverse the effects of arterial blockage caused by plaque in the time before surgery, after surgery, or in between surgeries.
Chelation Therapy for Heart Health
The chelator used for heart health is ethylene diamine tetra-acetate acid, or EDTA. EDTA comes in many forms such as IV drip, suppository, pill or liquid. Since EDTA is used to remove excessive, unbound minerals in the body, it can remove calcium from the plaque in the arteries, aiding in the reversal of the effects of blockage, which inhibits the flow of blood from the heart to the organs and muscles.
