Chelation therapy: Toxin and heavy metal detox for good health
It can’t be denied that in our daily life, we are exposed to toxins and heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, aluminum, arsenic, etc. Toxins and heavy metals from different sources enter our body, no matter we realize or not.
Contaminated foods: Contaminated drinking water, seafood with heavy metals, vegetables and fruits contaminated with chemicals through the growing process, meat with extra growth hormone. Chemicals are also found in cosmetics, hair dye, food coloring, plates, bowls, noodle pots, colorful toys, etc.
Polluted environment: For example, smoke from automobiles, cigarette smoke, polluted air from factories.
Pollution is all around … Everyone is exposed to toxins
Toxins harm you more than you think
Some kinds of toxins such as cadmium and arsenic are carcinogenic. Some toxins are associated with chronic diseases. For example, aluminum can cause Alzheimer's disease. Lead increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases and osteoporosis. Mercury increases the risk of immunity-associated diseases, such as allergies, hypersensitivity, rheumatic diseases and degenerative central nervous system.
These toxins bring about free radicals, chronic inflammation and cellular degeneration in organ systems. They affect the reproductive system, balance of sexual hormones, and gene expression. Gene mutation is part of cancer cell formation. Toxin accumulation or exposure to toxins in children is a cause of developmental delay, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and allergies.
You can have blood tests to find out the toxin levels in the body and plan treatment. Chelation therapy is one of the most effective methods in excreting toxins from the body.
Chelation Therapy is a treatment for people with heavy metal accumulation. Chelating agents, such as EDTA, DMSA or DMPS, absorb and excrete toxins through the urine. Chelation therapy can be administered by intravenous infusions, oral supplements, or rectal suppositories. The physician will determine the best method for each person, based on patient history, health check-up, symptoms, and laboratory test results.
Through the urine, toxins and heavy metals are excreted lowering accumulation in the body. In addition to the chelating agents which grab onto toxins, the treatment provides vitamins and minerals to improve health and restore balance to the body.
