Chelation is a treatment used to remove heavy metals from the body. It is most commonly used to treat lead poisoning, but it can also be used to treat other heavy metal poisoning such as mercury or arsenic. Chelation therapy can also be used to treat heart disease.
How it Works
Chelation therapy can be administered orally or intravenously. When administered intravenously, a chelating agent is injected into the bloodstream and binds to metal ions, which are then excreted in the urine. Oral chelation therapy uses chelating agents that are taken by mouth and bind to metal ions in the digestive tract before they are absorbed into the bloodstream.
The most common side effect of this therapy is low blood pressure, which usually goes away once the infusion is complete. Other side effects may include headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and dizziness.
Who Can Benefit from Chelation?
Chelation can be used to treat lead poisoning, mercury poisoning, arsenic poisoning, and heart disease. It is important to speak with a doctor to see if chelation therapy is right for you.
