If you eat a well-balanced diet, exercise on a regular basis, and take care of yourself, you may assume that you’re perfectly healthy. Unfortunately, due to the toxins saturating our environment, you are still vulnerable to chemicals and pollutants found in the air, food, and water around you.
You can’t achieve optimal wellness without detoxifying your body from its continual buildup of harmful toxins, and chelation therapy is one of the best ways to accomplish this goal. Here’s everything you should know about detoxifying with chelation therapy.
What is Chelation Therapy?
Chelation therapy is a simple treatment that removes heavy metals like lead, mercury, copper, iron, arsenic, aluminum, and calcium from the body. During chelation therapy, molecules of the amino acid EDTA are delivered into the body using an IV.
EDTA naturally latches onto heavy metals and carries them out of the body through the urine. In this way, chelation can reduce the body’s toxic metal burden and minimize or eliminate a number of negative health consequences.
The Benefits of Chelation Therapy
Heavy metals latch quickly and firmly to the tissues and bones of the body and generate extensive free radical damage over time. Since free radical damage can cause everything from chronic disease to signs of aging, heavy metals are very damaging to the body.
Chelation eliminates these toxins from the body and as a result prevents common symptoms of heavy metal toxicity like chronic fatigue, cognitive decline, joint and muscle pain, depression, anxiety, and autoimmune diseases. Through chelation therapy, the root cause of these health problems is addressed and resolved, which allows the body to reduce its inflammatory responses and return to full health.
At The Center For Natural & Integrative Medicine in Orlando, Florida, Dr. Amar Kalidas and Dr. Kirti Kalidas will help you maximize the use of chelation therapy so you can feel like the very best version of yourself.
