Our bodies are inevitably exposed to a lot of pollution, such as carbon monoxide from exhaust pipes, growth hormones in food, harmful colors in equipment, and volatile matters. When heavy metals or excessive toxins enter our bodies, they will penetrate through the walls of blood vessels and accumulate in the plasma. Such accumulation will consequently result in the inflammation and roughness of vessel walls, as well as the constriction of blood vessels, which impede the transportation of blood components and lead to development of certain diseases, including heart disease, hypertension, ischemic heart disease (IHD), and organ degradation. Although such conditions may not be unavoidable, they can be alleviated by chelation therapy.
Chelation therapy is the injection of fluids, specifically synthetic amino acids (EDTA), into the blood vessels in order to cluster the particles of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium together. After that, these cluster of heavy metals will be removed from the body via urine.
Who is Chelation Therapy Suitable For?
1. Coronary artery
3. Myocardial Infarction
4. Diabetes, Insomnia, Stress, or Fatigue
(Conditions under No. 1-4 are caused by heavy metal residues in the body)
5. Those with high detection of toxins and heavy metals in the body.
6. Those with poor eating habits, such as consumption of highly sweet food or snacks, oily food, meat, fries, and grilled meat.
7. Those who are under stress for a long period of time.
8. Those who regularly smoke and drink alcohol.
9. Women who are planning for pregnancy.
How Often Should You Undergo Chelation Therapy?
This depends on factors and purposes of the therapy. If you have a health condition that is directly associated with blood vessels, the frequency of undergoing a chelation therapy will depend on the physician’s discretion, which is generally 3-4 times per week. However, for healthy individuals who intend to undergo chelation therapy for the purpose of age retardation, it is safe to undergo the therapy once per week.
