Chelation therapy

A magnet for the toxic metals that are making you sick.

They say to think of chelation therapy like a crab, pinching metals and removing these aggravating slivers from your system. In fact, chelation comes from the Greek word chele meaning ‘claw of crab.’

We sometimes describe our Vernon chelation therapy as a magnet, with chelating agents pulling out electrically charged mineral ions such as lead, copper, iron or calcium. When these heavy metals are removed from your body, healing can begin.

How does chelation therapy work?

In the 1930’s, Germany developed EDTA, a chelating agent used to treat lead poisoning. Twenty years later, physicians observed other conditions such as arthritis or atherosclerosis improved as patients were undergoing chelation therapy.

Today, chelation is a common treatment to help people detox from heavy metals, and it’s been used to treat and prevent atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), heart disease and stroke. In fact, before the heart bypass surgery became an option, there was chelation.

At our Vernon chelation therapy sessions, you’ll receive an intravenous infusion of EDTA to:

  • remove unhealthy metals from your body
  • improve your calcium and cholesterol metabolism
  • lower the damage to cells by free radicals

With such far-reaching results, particularly to free radicals, our Okanagan natural medicine clinic uses chelation to treat dozens of diseases of aging.
