IV Chelation Therapy is a cutting edge medical treatment designed to remove heavy metals and detoxify the blood. Conventional and alternative medical practitioners alike use IV Chelation Therapy to remove harmful minerals and heavy metals such as mercury, an especially common element found in blood due to its abundance in our environment. Mercury is commonly found in water, air, and soil, and can get into the bloodstream through dental fillings, food, drinks, or chemical exposure. When people accumulate too much mercury in the body over their lifetime, it can become toxic to them. Chelation Therapy is also commonly used to remove high levels of arsenic, cadmium, lead, copper, calcium, and aluminum from the bloodstream. IV Chelation Therapy has been proven to be an effective method of treatment because it bypasses the digestive system and is injected directly into the patient’s bloodstream for easy absorption.

IV Chelation Therapy is a method of receiving intravenous fluids to treat heavy metal poisoning, heart conditions like hardening of the arteries, and several other serious health concerns. When a person goes to a doctor’s office for IV Chelation Therapy, he or she receives ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) directly into the bloodstream. The EDTA then binds to the heavy metals or minerals and exits the body through urination.

Benefits of IV Chelation Therapy

According to the American College of the Advancement of Medicine, researchers have conducted more than 500 independent studies on the benefits of EDTA Chelation Therapy. All of the studies supported the use of this procedure to treat and reverse the significant health problems discussed in the above paragraph. Additionally, IV  Chelation Therapy with EDTA offers dozens of other benefits that improve appearance, energy, and long-term health in other areas. The following are some of the most significant benefits uncovered in these research studies:


Intravenous Chelation Therapy has a natural anti-aging effect by helping to increase the normal life expectancy. People who successfully complete treatment have more energy than they did prior to treatment. Both traditional and holistic doctors may recommend IV Chelation Therapy for people who suffer from chronic fatigue.


Detoxification is the removal of toxic substances from the body. EDTA quickly binds itself to heavy metals in your body and transports it out of your system, leaving you happier and healthier.

Minimizing After Effects of Chemotherapy

A study conducted by Swiss researchers indicates that people who have completed IV Chelation Therapy have a mortality rate from cancer that is 90 percent less than those who have used a combination of chemotherapy and drug therapy alone. IV Chelation Therapy is also effective in reversing prostate cancer as well as the impotence it can cause.

Improved Memory

Intravenous Chelation Therapy can improve memory and mental clarity by removing harmful toxins from the body and improving blood circulation, particularly in the brain. People also report fewer problems with depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders after completing treatment.

Stabilization of Cholesterol Levels

Receiving EDTA Chelation Therapy Intravenously helps to increase the amount of good cholesterol (HDL) present in the body while reducing the amount of LDL, which doctors consider the bad cholesterol.

Improved Antioxidant Activity

Free radicals in the cell membranes and bloodstream can cause lipid peroxidation, a process in which electrons are stolen from cell membranes by the free radicals resulting in cell damange. Lipid peroxidation is common when excess calcium, iron, and copper are present within the body and is linked to the production of carcinogenic and mutagenic materials. When a person receives EDTA through chelation therapy, it eliminates harmful mineral and metals. This in turn reduces free radical production and stops the internal destruction it wreaks. Along with the antioxidant nutrients of gluthione, perioxidase, selenium, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, EDTA is instrumental in reducing the amount of free radicals in the body.
